Hope is On the Way!!!

Hola people! Writing to you all from the Democratic Convention. No, not really. I wish. That would be so cool. I love watching the thing on CSPAN. Maybe that makes me a dork, but I don't care. I just love the feeling that exists here in this place today. John Edwards lit up the floor, and Bill Clinton (the greatest president who ever lived) made a powerful message even more powerful last night, with his words of wisdom and courage. "Strength and wisdom are not opposing values!" A quote for the ages! Anyway, I'm really excited, and I'm starting to fall in love with Elizabeth Edwards. She rocks so hard! I'm already in love with John Edwards. That man is on fire! I wish everyone in the US could get this excited about politics again. I believe that Kerry/Edwards could win the election, if the people who want Bush out of office would get out and vote. Most of his supporters will. So if you don't like Bush, get out there and vote! Even if you do, go out and vote anyway. You may change your mind halfway there.

Angry @ Our Fathers

I'm mad. I'm not going to say who I'm mad at, because that would just be telling. But I am mad. Right now, I have to go through a lot of crap, just to do something that shouldn't involve more than three people. But, I'm not complaining. Just laying out all of the circumstances. Anyway, I don't care that much about it, but I only have three freinds, and if I don't talk to them, who do I have to talk to? I guess I could call Heather. Or Lauren. I suppose I'll have to. It's hard to be mad at the people who you have a band with.

Farscape, Farscape, Farscape!!!

Yay!! Farscape is back for a miniseries event that will answer all the unanswered questions! I'm really excited that it's coming back and I really can't wait to see it. Granted, it's just a miniseries, but it's still going to rock out loud!! I didn't want to get into Farscape even though it was a damn good show, because by the time I started to like it it was already off the air. Now, I can get back in it. It really is a terrific show. If you haven't watched it, you should really start.

Zooming Through Time! Weeeeeeeeeee!

I just did a semester's worth of work in about three hours. I'm a little out of it. Did Hitler really march into Istanbul after the Ottoman's seized the 95 Theses? When you go through 1000 years of history in 180 minutes things to to blur together. Thank Goodness there's no final exam, or else I'd be screwed. What did Peter the Great and Napolean have in common? They were both standing in front of the tanks the day that the Swedens invaded cape town. I think. I really do need to take a little time off, but all that slacking I did has come back to bite me in the butt. Right now I'm staring down two papers and a final exam. Isn't that beat up? Anyway, I think that I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and keep going. Now, if I could only remember why Pope Gregory I and Freida Kahlo tore down the Berlin Wall.

Operation: Computer In Closet

Well, this was a total failure. My mom found the computer in my closet, and it was lights out. This will be my last official post from in here. I guess that I should be glad. It was a lot of stress trying to keep everything a secret. Listening to NPR all the time to drown out the sound of the comp running. Anyway, I don't know I'm going to do without all my anime. I have some on here, and I just hope that it doesn't get deleted. Anyway. That's all.

Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it's off to work I go!

I have so much work to do. Really. I shouldn't even be sitting here writing this. I should be working. But you know me, slacker Terri. My teachers think I've got nothing to do except do the work for their class. I mean, Geez! I have a life, you know. Not really. I don't really have a life, that's just something I say to justify me not doing any work. So, really, I could do the work, but I'm a slacker! Anyway, so I'm listening to NPR and there was this fire in a school in India. 88 kids died. That's really sad. I hate hearing about kids dying. I hate hearing about anybody dying, but I really hate hearing about kids dying. I was listening to something else about Sudan and the genocide that's going on there. This guy was talking about how he was there, and these guys took hiim to two different pits filled with bodies. Just hundreds and hundreds of bodies. It seems kind of screwed up that I'm here compaining about how much work I have to do, and there are people dead all over the world who didn't have to be. They're only dead because of the violence that's everywhere, and we could do something to stop it, but we won't. We could send troops to Sudan. I'd rather have troops there than in Iraq anyway. At least I know they're really doing something good, and not wasting thier time and dying for nothing. I guess that the only thing that some people care about is the bottom line. Even if it's covered in blood.

The Shape of ...

I love Rachel Weisz. I think that she's a wonderful actress. And she's the only one of Brendan Fraser's costars (with which he was romantically linked, in his movies)  that I come away actually liking. Even Ricki Lake, whom which he starred with in Mrs. Winterbourne, I couldn't stand for at least a year after that. Some I've continued to despise, but Rachel, well, Rachel I just couldn't hate. She was so perfect with him, I just couldn't deny it. So anyway, even after that I've liked her and followed her career. I saw Runaway Jury and Enemy at the Gates. All I have left to see is Confidence and Envy. And today I saw the Shape of Things. She's in it and Paul Rudd and Gretchen Mol, and some other guy who I didn't recognize. It's the story of this woman (Eve) and this guy (Adam), (get it? Adam and Eve? haha) and they get together and they're having a relationship and Adam's friend's who never gave a rat's behind really about him, start getting their knickers all in a bunch when Eve starts changing Adam. At first it's little things, like a haircut and a new coat, but then he gets a nose job and his character actually starts changing. Then, SPOILER ALERT!!!, in the end it turns out that she was just trying to change him for her thesis for her master's degree. She never really cared about him at all. All in all a pretty forgettable movie. Not Rachel's best work by any means. The thing that even makes me tell you all of this and write all this down is the fact that there was no ending. No resolution. Nobody learns anything, except maybe Adam who learns never to trust anyone ever again. Eve just walks away with no regrets and without any remorse. Adam's friends are still as stuck up as ever and except for breaking up don't change at all. I don't know why it bothers me so much, but the non resolution of that movie really bothered me. I don't know, it hardly seems worth it, but how could somebody get on board for a movie with no ending? They just walk out of the room, parting on a phrase that nobody got a chance to hear, with no sense of closure. What kind of movie is that?  

Let It Burn

I love that song. Let it Burn, I mean. Whenever it comes onto the radio I find myself just lettting go and feeling the funk. It doesn't do wonders for my driving skills, but what are you going to do? I find myself singing to other drivers as we're going down the road. I find myself doing that a lot. I love to perform. I love letting people seeing what I can do. I love acting, dancing, and singing. In my room. Otherwise, I get all clammy and nervous. I like the idea of doing it in front of other people, but actually doing it makes me freeze and not be able to think straight. I suppose that's just the way that I'm made. That's why I'm writing this blog instead of writing a book, or a book of poetry. Certainly is easier this way, but not much notoriety. My dad just told me about a talent show, for instance.  It's a wonderful idea to go back to my church and show up all those smug so and sos, but I don't think I'll end up doing it. I always have so many beautiful plans that turn up becoming nothing. 

Late @ Night

It's late, and I'm writing this because I just watched as much of Alien: Resurrection as I could stomach without throwing up. And I came close. I was vomiting in the back of my mouth for a little while there. I had to pick up my bro from work today. It makes me think about how much I wish I had a job. I feel like suck a loser wondering around without a job. Even though I am in school right now, it seems like I'm not doing anything. Moping around in my 7up boxers and a head scarf doesn't seem very productive. The Norwegiens are a very funny talking people! I don't think I spelled that right, but I really am to lazy to care. Yay! Maybe it's the Dutch I'm talking about. But back to the point of this post... I feel like a loser. I sometimes get in the dumps about it and sometime I let it roll off my back. Not because of any personla trait that I have, but just because I forget things easily, and don't have the memory span to stay depressed about something long. If I get into a better school this fall, it'll probably be better, but who knows? I certainly don't. I just want to take free karate lessons.

My First Blog

Sooo... Here I am, here you are, together in my blog. Welcome! I'm not quite as sad as you are since I'm not the one reading this, but we're both pretty sad. I just wanted to be able to write about my days and share it with the world! Yay! So, I guess you'll want to know about me. I'm 21 years old, and still looking to get into a better college. I love to write and I love Brendan Fraser even more. I live with my parents and boy, are they mean. I'm supposed to be going to karate practice right now, but here I am, writing this blog. I just saw Donnie Darko and if you haven't seen it you should, it's terrific. I just wished that I had seen it sooner. I'm listening to NPR right now, and they're talking about pre-war intelligence. If you continue to read this you will find out about me, my position on politics and stuff, and other things. I might even put up some links to other stuff that I like. So, stay tuned, stay here, and stay interested. I guess. Don't stay sad, though, that's just, well, sad.
