So on the list for the afternoon rant: new Pandaria cinematics, Diablo 3 WTF, music, and deviantart. And maybe other stuff, if I'm THAT bored... I do have a lot of Harry Potter to listen to, yanno.

They released some more Pandaria cinematics. Two involved when the Pandaren pick a side and enter the main government building of Orgrimmar/Stormwind, in preparation to meet Garrosh/Varian. The Garrosh one was... ehh... it was okay. I really liked the Varian one. It was quite interesting to see how they've advanced in technology use.

For some reason I've actually been a mood to play Diablo 3 lately. The mood quickly dies whenver I try to make much advancement in my Demon Hunter's progression... but, well... eh. Basically I've ended up focusing on my monk and creating yet another new character. This time I tried out the... warlock? Wizard? Whatever the magic caster is who isn't the witch doctor. She's pretty fun, actually (although I am very not impressed, again, by the armor skin for the women. It's bad enough that the demon hunter is ALWAYS wearing heels, the poor woman, but I keep seeing the "pants" my wizard is supposedly wearing, and then looking at her character model, and all I see is a sort of sash thing, like she's wearing a badly mangle sweathshirt around her waist. And then nothing but thigh between her waist and the top of her boots -headdesk-). She has this really neat attack where she throws like... balls of power of some sort, and it looks like a mini galaxy. It's really pretty! She also has a sort of icy-ray attack that makes me think of the Sailor Moon R movie  when the senshi are killing off the plant masses on the meteor and, well... I find it very funny. Also, when I first hear her voice I thought "OMG IT'S AZULA!" (from "Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Aang"). She's voiced by Grey DeLisle, who has voiced not only Azula, but also Vicky ("The Fairly Oddparents"), Daphne ("Scooby-Doo"), quite a few characters in "Samurai Jack"... and quite a few other cartoon voices that it's just... wow...

So that was amusing.

I'm trying to clean out my iTunes because I keep getting reminded that I have all of this music on there that I never listen to. I understand the point of having it so that if I feel like I will listen to it. But there's stuff on there I put on there that I have never listened to anywhere else. I don't even know what it sounds like. I've gotten rid of like five or six CDs this past month by going through the stuff. MORE DISK SPACE WOOT!

Well let's see... almost a full Britney Spears CD (between two CDs I chopped out half of each disc; DON'T JUDGE ME), at least one Babylon 5 CD, an entire audiobook that was just unbearable and I'll just grab the library book itself sometime rather than listen to that, and about an entire Now That's What I Call Music CD (or more, since those are long), since I chopped out at least half of the two CDs I had. And never listened to full way, even before iTunes was around. An entire Spice Girls CD that was just... weird. A number of duplicates. Some Doctor Who. Fringe. A couple other soundtracks. Also finally got around to listening to some stuff to at least make sure I liked them enough to keep them, like "Atonement", a few Babylon 5 soundtracks... some other stuff. Did I mention that this is a PAINFULLY slow process?

So now I'm tackling the Harry Potters. I know that I like at least some of the music. The original theme is something I've always loved, and I remember liking one of the last two movie soundtracks. I also seem to recall that I looked book 4's soundtrack, but that might have been because Dad played it so damn often in the car on my way to school (or wherever we drove) that it just stuck there. Have I mentioned that he traumatized my childhood through that movie?

So, for some reason, I finally decided to go to my deviantart and update my pointless journal. I can spend hours updating here and I don't post anything. I don't see the point of having something there.

And then I decided to go through the archives, which were far more extensive than I had previously thought.

And then I realized that, at least initially, the journal hadn't been entirely pointless. I'd been posting writing there. Quite bad and incomprehensible writing, to be honest (beyond the grammar and bad writing style, I hadn't bothered using spell check, hadn't looked over my work, and seemed to believe 'doubt' has a 'gh' instead of a 'b'...), but writing, nonetheless.

So I went through to see if there was anything worthwhile. And so I deleted about half of it and edited most of the rest so it was comprehensible.

I should really be working on my LSAT homework. Or trying to get this police volunteer application in (because it's evil and I can't seem to get it to work). But I want... to play... Diablo 3...

I really got into cleaning today. I did four loads of laundry, reorganized my library, started organization of my boxes, put my shoes away, and took a shower.

I love having clean clothes! They're warm and smell good

I still have a mess on my desk and have to finish my box assortment, besides hanging up three shirts. I am overstuffed with clothes! I didn't realize that having an overabundance of laundry means that you have an overabundance of clothes.

I cleaned some. I threw away a lot of paper and cleaned up the floor of my closet. I now have 4-5 loads of laundry to go through, but it's all right because at least it'll finally be done.

We went to Thai for dinner. It was good. We talked a lot about court cases and superheros.

We laughed a lot (Mom, Mike and I). Then we went food shopping. It was fun too. We kept cracking up and bought like 54 items. The cashier put like the first 20 things in their own bags, which was really stupid. Then Mike's card wouldn't go through. This one woman was staring at us as we left, cause our cart was so damn big.

The Dream is ending.

Everything was so peaceful and fun for the past eleven days.

I didn't have any responsibilities outside of laundry and organizing.

I didn't have to study anything. I didn't play solitaire for hours out of boredom.

I saw "The Producers" with my family (and Heather's friend). I saw "King Kong" with Karina. I saw "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" again with Mom and Mike for the first time. I saw "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" with Daddy again. I made my library on my computer, and put my books in order. I did my vocab that I don't even know if we're doing it or not. I won the Pokemon championship in my game. I won Gold for the Tokyo level in "Tony Hawk". I made my cousins and aunt and uncle laugh. I don't even remember (if ever) the last time I did that. I built up my iPod library. I finished three books. I've written and drawn a lot. I had donuts and pizza with dad and Heather. We also finally made that garlic bread. I watched the first two "Matrix" films and "The Fifth Element". I watched the ball drop with Dad and Heather.

Like snow, this world is melting away to make way for the old one, to make way for my life to return to it's course. I'm waking up from a dream that I don't want to ever end.

I feel... like a part of me will die tomorrow, when I wake up to the sound of my alarm. I'll see all my friends again, and we chat all day about what we did during the break. We'll laugh, and then we'll move on, and this time will become a distant memory in the past long gone...

That's enough for now. If I want to make do with what I have, then I am going to quit this and do something!

Today I watched "Collateral", which is also good. I also watched Constantine twice. I love that movie.

I cleaned my room up some more, or more like sorted my clothes some more.

Mom helped me a whole lot with the concept map. Without Mom, I would never have it done now.

I read some today. I slept a little. I don't think I wasted this day at all, even though I didn't really do anything.

I thought the onlinecomics site was going to help, but I was wrong. It only shows the updates once a day and all the comics updated after that.

I watched "Constantine". That movie is so awesome. I knew it would be awesome. I knew it. But no one would take me to see it! This always happens. It happened with "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen", "Van Helsing", "National Treasure" and a lot more than I can remember right now.

I started cleaning my closet today. I can use the time for spaces on my PE sheet. I didn't finish because I want to do the same thing tomorrow so I can get more squares on my sheet.

"Vampirates" had an awesome strip today. I can't stop staring at it...
