I am not Left Brained

Today was a bit of a doozy for me. First off, I only got about four or five hours of sleep, mostly because a certain dude who may or may not be called Ricky happens to be in town. Then I realized my class ring, which I received yesterday after two or three weeks of it being resized, had lost its stone and crest. I was not happy, to say the least. Finally I had physics lab today, which was a grueling one that I, being right-brained, had a lot of trouble with. Also the guy in our group who claims to know all the answers got half of the questions wrong, so we ended up getting those wrong too.

This, combined with the mother of all caffeine withdrawals, gave me a headache the likes of which I haven't had in many a moon.

Needless to say, I'm done for the day.  

I was bored

Okay, so about ten seconds after posting that other post, I wrote a poem. I think it's awesome enough to warrant its own post, which is why I'm not just tacking it onto the end of the other post. I call it Beneath the Wide Blue Sky; I wrote part of it for a fanfic I'm working on, and I decided the premise was good enough for me to write it out in its entirety. So here it is.

Beneath the Wide Blue Sky
Long before I came to be
That wide blue sky went from earth to sea
A blanket to the rocks and plants
Inspiring legions of song and dance
Beneath that wide blue sky we lie
Like flowers, twined together in the eye
Of the golden sun; nothing can compare
To the taste of blessed light on the open air
Tiny hands catch fragments of light
Could there be anything better than the sight
Of innocence touched by the sky? No, says I,
Not shining gold or mountain high
Like kindness itself I am kissed
By that sun and cloud I sorely missed
Though decrepit and rough is my skin
I still feel the sun and moon and rain and wind
Long after I am gone
That wide blue sky goes ever on
So let me rest in the whispering breeze
In the sighing grass and rustling trees

Still Not Dead

Me again.

I have survived yet another day of college. Tomorrow I have my first French test of the semester; I think I'm ready for it, but I'm still gonna study my @$$ off. I also have a lab test tomorrow, but that shouldn't be as hard to pass.

Sadly I still don't know when all the clubs are gonna start. There are three I'm really interested in, and they also happen to be the three least updated pages on the club list. So still waiting on that.

Debating whether or not to keep writing fanfiction while in college. Based on my art appreciation notes, it's safe to say I'm gonna keep at it.

That's all for today. Ciao.

I'm Not Dead!

It has been many moons since I have posted on this website. Many things have happened since last I posted here:

  1. I have graduated from high school and am now in college (posts on sanity to follow)

  2. I am writing two fanfics, though one is currently on hiatus

  3. I was laid off from my job and am currently unemployed

  4. Mass Effect has ruined entered my life

  5. Tumblr has ruined my life

  6. The new LJ confuses me

  7. I have all but disappeared from most social media

  8. I no longer go by "baneofshadow". I am now called "vivaciousWordsmith"

More updates on life will follow as they occur. Hopefully, this will be more often than in the past.

I have to go to class now. Later, dudes.

Here it comes....

It has recently come to my attention that I have a birthday coming up. This will be my eighteenth birthday, considered by most of the world to be quite an important one, and I realize most of you will be wondering what I want on this great occasion.

Manga? Always appreciated.

Doctor Who books? They're cool.

A new sonic screwdriver? S'nice.

Any doodad I didn't get for Christmas? Sure, why not?

Laser hair removal? Okay.

Sugar and milk free chocolate cake? If such a beast exists.

Really, though, all I want for my birthday is to spend time with the people I love, whether they be friends, family or otherwise serve an important purpose in my life. It's especially important now because this is the last birthday I will spend living at home, so I just wanted to take this time to say thank you. Thank you for guiding me through all the hard times in my life. I won't say it's been easy; God knows there were times when I thought I wasn't gonna make it, but I did, and that's all that matters.

Once again, thank you. 


...and it is awesome. 

That is all there is to say on the matter. 

Bad Day

My cat died today. Her name was Button, and she was my favorite out of the four we had. She was a calico; orange with black and white splotches. The reason she was called Button was because she had this black spot on her nose. When my great-grandmother passed away nine years ago, we inherited both her and another cat called Prissy, who died about four years ago. She was a little more than eight when we got her; she was about eighteen when she passed away. To hear my parents tell of it, she looked like she was sleeping in her basket, which they say means she went peacefully. I suppose that's a good thing, but I can't help but wish she was still here. 

I didn't want her to go while I was still in high school; is that selfish of me? I just wanted her to stay until I moved out. Now she's gone, and I didn't even get to say goodbye. I had to get up early today and rush out of the house; I didn't even notice she wasn't pestering me for food. It's the past, though, and I can't change that. 

I miss her already, and it's only been a few hours. I feel like she'll come tottering around the corner, or I'll hear her bawling for food. I know she won't, which just makes it worse. Even so, I'll always keep her in my heart. At least I know she's there. 

Wherever you are, I hope there's lots of Friskies and dangly things, Button.

Rest in peace. 

Brain Fail (AKA Poetry Thursday #2)

I keep forgetting about Poetry Thursday...you know, that thing I said I was going to do every Thursday? So, for lack of inspiration, I will take it up again today with this rather creepy poem I wrote while watching Tobuscus play Elementary. 

Eenie meenie minie moe
There is nowhere you can go
If you run, he will know
Eenie meenie minie moe

Ip dip dip
Who knows when you will slip?
One wrong move will sink your ship
You better hope you won't be it

That's it for now. See y'all later. ;)

Not So Nice Friday

Yesterday was not so good for me. First off, my section totally botched our chair test; it was just way too fast for us, and although we all did our best, we sounded about as good as a cat organ. Because of this, Mr. C said we weren't allowed to go to the pep rally (which my brother was performing at) and kept us from packing up until we played it again. Most of us still did pretty horrendously, resulting in one of the most humiliating situations of my young life. 

Secondly, I started feeling yucky. My throat was scratchy, my eyes were itchy and my nose was stuffed. I managed to trudge my way through the school day, but not without effort. I was so dog tired when I got home, I pretty much stayed on either the couch or my parents' bed for the rest of the day, meaning that I missed my brother's performance at the football game. 

Lastly, my Xbox Live account expired, so I couldn't play online with my boyfriend. This was quite upsetting, as we don't always get to see each other and this is one of the only ways we can stay connected. Getting even one month of gold account will cost ten dollars. 

Summary: yesterday sucked. 

Still not feeling much better today, but at least I got some homework done. That's a plus. 

Wee Bit Odd, This One

All right, there's this guy who sits across from me in my Anatomy/Physiology class who's kinda weird. I've known him since last year, and believe me, he's always been really weird. He's the one who'll always say what he's thinking, no matter how gross/inappropriate/wrong it is. Anyway, we're sorta friends now. 

Today, he was goofing around with this ring that was on his pen when, out of the blue, he holds it out to me and asks, "Will you marry me?"

Not really knowing what else to say in a situation like this, I replied, "I'm too young, and so are you. Besides, I have a boyfriend."

He said, and I quote, "I'll kill him."

A little nonplussed at this, I sarcastically replied, "I'm sure you will, but you'd have to find him first."

He smiled at me and proceeded to say, "No I won't."

I sure have weird friends.
