You guys aren’t going to believe this.

Okay, so I just went without internet for like, two weeks.
Why?
Because the people running our connection got a divorce.

A freaking divorce.

A FREAKING DIVORCE. DX

And actually, even though I was so excited to make this post throughout the entire internet drought for whatever reason I didn't get around to posting it until now. Not because LJ has been on the fritz, but because I just haven't had the willpower to post anything. ;3;a

But oh~ I kept a log, guys~ A log~

Just to warn everyone, this entry is REALLEH REALLEH LOOOOONG.
If you don't have an hour to spend reading one entry, I suggest you skip over this.

For those of you who plan to actually take my advice:
TL;DR: The people running my previous internet connection decided to see other people. And by other people I mean other people besides their customers. And then they cut off their service and disappeared [probably] to the shadow realm where no one could reach them. The entire rural area of southeast Minnesota is left in a rage, and on a microcosmic level, I am left with severe internet withdrawal. I fill this void in my life with Pokemon and Gurren Lagann. One friend gets married and another turns 20. In other news, Neville Longbottom's a badass, I finished Kaminomi 2, and the new Vocaloid is super cute. One week until living in super lavish campus apartments with awesome people.

So...
Well, before I can make this entry I have to provide some background stuffs, since I haven't been real good about updating super-often lately. XD;;

I'm super psyched for Anime Detour this spring. It's going to by my first anime convention ever and I seriously can't wait. I keep having dreams at night about buying things there. Which is kind of sad, since I should be going for AWESOME PEOPLE but...

Anyway, every time I go to work, I think to myself, "FOR DETOUR!"
It's become my rallying battle cry, in a way.
Any time I go off to do something to make money to spend at Anime Detour, I proclaim this to myself, and head forward!!

And that's part one of the background story.

Not long ago Sensei [That is, our Japanese teacher. No one calls him by his real name. For serious. I'm not sure I even know his name anymore. He's always just been Sensei. Well, I guess he signs his e-mails "The Great Darkness" but...] said he was taking a travel study group to Japan this coming spring. He sent all of his students an e-mail about it. Not long before that, I had tried to explain the difference between a travel study and studying abroad to Mother, and so I forwarded her this e-mail thinking, "Here's an example~" She's really worried about me studying abroad for a whole year and doesn't really feel comfortable with the whole idea, so... yeah. :|a
I guess I can't blame her, but you know.

Sensei had sent out the e-mail in order to gauge interest, even if it was unlikely that you'd go. Seeing the expensive price and knowing my family isn't exactly rolling in dough, I replied saying, "Interested, but I'll probably need some divine intervention if I want to go."

I talk to Mom about it later, and she tells me she thinks it's a really good idea since it's worth credits and more importantly because I'd be with a whole group and a professor instead of just by myself. However, the price is way out of our range.

Thus ends part 2 of our back story.

At work I've been training for how to close at night. Previously I could only work during the lunch hour and the evening meal hour. As a result, I've suddenly been getting a jackton more hours. Last night I closed by myself for the first time, and it actually went better than expected~
[Well, except for the fact that I forgot to take out the cardboard when I took out the final trash. I set it right on the counter. Right in-front of me. AND I STILL FORGOT IT. OTL
Oh well. It was only like, one and a half boxes. :|]


My raise finally kicked in. [It was only 10 cents, but still. BUT STILL.] And my most recent paycheck was much higher due to SLDFSDLKJ MOAR HOURS. :D

So Mom says, "Well, maybe if you keep getting paychecks like this, we can work something out."

And now on to my main entry:

"FOR DETOUR!!"
JUST BECAME
"FOR JAPAN!!"
lurora: (Life is wonderful~!!)
Hola~

I see someone noticed I was gone and alerted everyone to post again~
Still catching up~ OTL

Church was hilarious today. My cousin's daughter kept waving back at him during the kid's sermon. After hearing what the pastor had to say she was like, "I'm-a go tell Daddy."
"Oh, okay."
So she runs back. Looks at him. Runs back to the front pew. Waves again.
It was so adorable. =3=

Before I get started, HAPPY [day after your] BIRTHDAY BRI. AKA RL FRIEND WHO DOESN'T EVEN READ THIS BUT AM WISHING HAPPY BIRTHDAYS TO ANYWAY.

If anyone remembers my fair post about the birthday necklaces, then you already know what I got her. I wanted to take a photo of it, but I didn't bring my camera home this weekend. ;;
But it's really adorable~ Trust me~

Actually, upon rereading that post, I realized I didn't really go into detail about that, so STORY TIME~
Story time~ And also, Friday~ )

Do it, yo. |Db

Why do bugs attack me when I mow the lawn? ;;
THIS IS WHY I HATE DOING IT. MOTHS FLYING IN MY FACE = DO NOT WANT.

Also, not only has my driveway been taken over by small yellow butterflies, but also a good length of the highway by my house. It's like they're invading. D:

My friend's birthday is coming up on the 30th~ I'm-a draw her something, me thinks. She likes horses lots, so probably something like that.

This entry ended up longer than expected. )
