Tortoise = WANTS

March 24th, 2008

Over the weekend, I remembered that I had a wedding to go to at the end of this month, which then made me realize that I lack dresses. I have a few cute ones for casual wear, but I just don’t have any for occassions like this. I’m a programmer that wears T-shirts and jeans to work. I barely have use for dresses! Anyway, I dragged my boyfriend to go shopping with me, and I ended up buying a couple at Express. I likes :3

We also stopped by an exotic pet store to buy filter replacements for our turtle aquarium. Everytime I go to a pet store that has tortoises, it makes me want one so bad =( I’ll probably get one eventually, but I don’t think it’s a good time for me to get one while I’m still moving around. They’re expensive! They seem to range from $90 to $200. This is the one I have my eye on…

It’s a Russian tortoise, and I don’t think it grows much larger than 6 inches. It might seem random that I want a tortoise, but my boyfriend and I actually have 4 baby aquatic turtles XD;; (Red ear sliders, to be exact.) They’re the offspring of my parents’ adult turtles. So yes, I really like turtles, and want a land one, too :3 As an ending note, here is one of our babies, enjoying the heat lamp. This is the only one that will let me take a picture like this… because he’s blind and doesn’t realize I’m there ^^;;,

The past few days

March 16th, 2008

Thank you for the birthday wishes ^^ My roommate’s birthday was last month, but she had her tonsils out at the time, so she didn’t celebrate. We decided to have a joint birthday celebration at an expensive sushi restaurant we like with 10 of our friends. Oh! And check out the cool gift she got me. My boyfriend got me Crystal Chronicles on DS, which we started playing together today. Not bad so far. He also got me a plushie racoon, which I named Nookie. Bonus points if you know why I used that name =O

I pretty much know where I’m going to live next month. Since I started college, I have been moving every year. The moment I got out of the dorms, I had 3 roommates in an apartment. Then 2 the next year. Then 1 after that. Now, I’m about to have none. My first time living alone! I decided on a place yesterday, but forgot my checkbook. They, unfortunately, couldn’t take it off the market without the admin and app fee. I ended up going back later to drop off the money in their night drop box. On Monday, they should be able to take it off the market, and it’ll be mine! It’s a nice 1 bedroom apartment in a green belt area, meaning it’s surrounded by a wooded area, and things like gas stations can’t be built on it.

Oh, I finally bought another external hard drive yesterday to do back ups. It’s amazing how fast things like that get cheap. It was a 500GB for $120. A few years ago, I bought a 160GB for about the same price O.o;;

Oh, guess what day it is

I need to stop crouch canceling… because it doesn’t work in Brawl… And, oh noes, Samus’s bomb jump feels weird now =(

Anyway! Since it’s past midnight and officially the 13th, I guess I can say that I’m 23 now! A conversation I had with my roommate…

“Are you excited about turning 23? You can rent a car.”
“I think you have to be 25.”
“I thought females could get it earlier.”
“You’re probably thinking of car insurance.”
“Well, ok, then your insurance goes down.”
“It already did that at 21.”
“F*ck, I guess there’s nothing special about 23. Well, it’s a prime number at least.”
“That is… true.”

I suppose a prime number is something a nerd can be excited about.
