Before anyone flames this, I will say that everyone has a different opinion on the current subject at hand, and everyone will ALWAYS have a different opinion because that's how freedom works. Now, on to the good stuff.

Around the world everyone is gathering to show awareness for a cause - standing strong against the 1% who control us, the 99% of the population who actually HAVE the power to change things. (no, you don't need money) Yes, everyone has a different thought on the subject, and there is no single collective idea because they do not want this - it would only be as locked down a system as the current governments have now. What people are doing as of now, is just getting noticed, and stating that something has to change. Sure, call it pointless having no cause. Call it whatever you please, but you do have to realize that we CANNOT keep printing money. It doesn't work that way.

A system of debt's does not help anyone [but the rich] and the gap between rich and poor only grows with each transaction. Why do you think people are living in the streets? Sure, I will agree with you; some people genuinely WANT to live there, and others are lazy and put themselves there, but there is also another class out there - the middle class, and the poor end of the spectrum. No, technically they may not be living on the streets, unable to get cleaned up and look decent for a job interview, but some struggle to get by with minimum wage jobs, and no hope of paying off existing debt.

All this happens while the 1% continue to engross in rich leisurely activities, using our tax/interest/debt money to climb further up the spiked ladder. Corporate greed needs to disappear, along with poor working conditions, and single entities or persons making more than $X annually. I'm not saying people cannot strive for more in life and reach for the top, but we all need to share this enhanced height of wealth equally, and receive an increase where an increase is due. (and a decrease where a decrease is due) Socialism is a bit extreme; call it more of a Socialist Democracy, where the people collectively agree on a central system of distribution while retaining their distinct and individual beliefs.

But I digress. You can talk blue in the face, but nothing will change until you start to carry out an action of some kind. Thought's may influence another, while actions will change those thoughts. (no, it doesn't make sense, and it doesn't have to because i said so.) Back to my original statement above; people will always have different opinions, making it neigh impossible to correlate on one matter with the identical wavelength as the living, breathing monster beside you - thus you come to a compromise at some point where we can agree on half of each side and meet in the middle. Currently, this is not what we have in our caste system, and until that changes, it will only continue to worsen until it finally gives out and we have an implosion of sorts. A nasty, financial implosion. (promise me you'll help burn the money?)

So go rise up and help out your city of choice; after all, the 99% have the power to change the 1%, no matter how many police break the law to stop us. (I'm looking at you, Anthony Bologna. You pepper-spraying pansy.) I'm not anonymous, but I will agree on a whole with their ideals:
We are Anonymous.  We are Legion.  We do not forgive.  We do not forget.  Expect us.

Well ... that was a long Hiatus. Nine days short of a month; they just can't keep me off DeviantArt :D
Life's going wonderfully again, minus the usual few quirks here and there from that not-so-distant-past, and Prom is only 25 days away. Hope everyone's been enjoying April showers; after all they do bring May flowers.


"in the state of mind again, unburdened and uncertain; make some sense; pick up the pen."
^^^^^
Something I wrote a while ago that was going to be developed further... but kinda just wasn't. Guess it could be some inspiration to get back to writing or soemthing... idk.

As for my temporary leave, welll... that wasnt working for me. Life's boring without emotion. no one wants to live a boring life. Sooo.. I became super happy the weekend of the 11th of April :P taking everything as it came; finding new ideas and believing new thoughts. And then this weekend too; friends and a campfire are the best medicine for a sick mind... health wise that is. ;)

Being happy doesn't mean the sad is gone; there's still plenty of that. I'm just making an attempt to live life to its' fullest - something found to be all too much fun :) In the weeks before Prom I'm hoping to tie up a few loose ends - just small things that I've been able to realize and think about. I won't get all the loose ends; not this week; not this month; perhaps not even for years to come. But I will do what I can; and of course, what I want.

simple and to the point:
my feelings will take a leave of absence from the effective world starting now.
this is in an attempt to fix something i fucked up.
something childish that didnt need to be fucked up.
something that if remains broken, will fuck me up beyond repair.
i dont know when the feelings will return, but i hope ASAP.

short update that is meaningless but ill write anyways there will be no punctuation not ideas nothing based on anything there cant be when everything touched is wrecked i dont want to wreck anything but i dont want to leave things be so that makes catch 22 hurting you hurts me altho making me feel better in the end it will be the death of me they say once you love someone you always will or you never did i still do more than anyone can see even with this crap going on its just hard to see and its difficult for me for you too maybe idk but even after all this shit the insults the meaningless spurts of rants fights shits i still will be there for you as much as it hurts if i break what we have i will never do anything again ever pretty much live in silence like that ninja from gi joe and that i do not want to happen ever so i will close with the fact that altho i do not know what will happen no one can see the future i just hope the outcome is filled with joy sometime could take forever but sometime it will come yes im still pissed but make the best of the situation at hand make what you can out of life the events along the way may hurt or bring happiness but its whats left in the end that remains to sybolize the effects and that i do not ever want to lose for if i do my mother will say :P
Saw Alice in wonderland, in 3D! Bring on the headache whooo! Seriously though it was really good, and I <3 Jonny Depp! He's such an amazing actor, especially in Pirates! Public enemies he was amazing too :) So I guess you could say I was stokeed!

Posted more to my blog... don't feel like copying it here too, so if you wanna read, goto my website. I'm sure you can find it. I've had to find a lot of things lately... not just objects... thoughts too. Most are probably wrong cause I'm just guessing and 2nd guessing stuff, but not gonna act on anything until i know stuff for sure.

"Silence is Golden"
...sure, but Silence doesn't solve anything. Only procrastinates the inevitable... people need to realize that. some just dont. or they're waiting for the opportune moment... which is actually as soon as theres things to tell. truth must be saiid ASAP if it is to not be speculated and ruined by others. .... im not making much sense, and no i havent had caffeine... just completely brokend and snapped today... rant rant rant! ok well..
time to go dig a hole for about an hour before the movie

talk to you all later, KiRaShi

Whew! That was some soccer game, very cold yet warm in the sun. No, I didn't play, just went to watch a couple of friends play - well one was sitting out, and the other was playing. And no, I'm not usually this interested in sports, but it's a way to get out of the house on a sluggish Sunday. They played hard, ate some dirt, and kicked some butt, but the other team was marginally better by a hairline. Still, the clear, sunny sky and the white butterfly made it worthwhile.

Now here I am, posting yet another journal to my seemingly-dormant deviantart account. Been busy with school and Prom stuff, once again, not to mention real-life stuff, which is more important than anything right now. Also been getting my blog and website setup; yes, I own my own www.domainname.com now - er well, .ca because I am Canadian. But that is not the main focus of this journal.

Here today I am to talk about (like yoda, eh?) the use of symbols for nouns. They are everywhere, whether we realize it or not: the shirt you're wearing, your cousins nickname scheme for family members, even the the way your neighbors drive to work. To work effectively and strike as many potential beings as possible, symbols must be simple, easy-to-understand objects that don't require a lot of brainpower to decipher. Unless your aim is to make someone think. Then you let the games begin. And who doesn't like mind games? :P

Speaking of which, I finally solved my symbolic name. You wouldn't know it, but it's been killing me for almost a month now to find out why I am "Mr. Butterfly" or what it means. Been thinking about it day and night, well, actually over-thinking it. See, I figured it was more complicated than it actually was, and that only lead to a stifling confusion of chaos. But confusion no more - I got it today! And I'm so happy I did. The very thought of Mr. Butterfly, now that I know, kinda ties right into the White Butterfly that I've been mentioning for the past week or so, and I didn't even realize it. But everything is solved now... oh, wait, no it's not, but it sure is more joyous.

Anyways, time to go copy this to my blog, than find a game to play to take my mind off stuff. Or maybe drink? Or drugs? JUST KIDDING Those are bad... well drugs are, drinking for an occasion or with a purpose is fine, however. But time to go convert Eureka Seven! Talk to you all later.

Good day sirs, madame. How is yous all doing on this fine and shiny day?

OK. That was a failed attempt at being slightly British. But anywho, the title of this journal sums it all up.

Put simply, I do not celebrate Valentine's Day. I respect the fact that others may celebrate it, go right ahead. But I do not. My logical reasoning is that if you love someone, show them that every single day. Don't just pick this one day of the year to be a 'little more' romantic, or to go out on a special outing. Live everyday like that. What's the reasoning behind having this one day of extra love? None. (Unless you're a corporation such as Hallmark, or a chocolate company.)

There, that's done. Whew, pretty darn short 'rant' for me. Flame me as you will. Actually, this idea is very pathetically ironic to my current life.

The whole idea of loving everyday is wonderful, and I fully support it... I'm just horrible at showing any appreciation, or just complimenting on even the simplest of things, such as a friend's haircut. As out-bursting and crazy as I can be, I'm shy when it comes to telling someone they look good, or even saying "I Love You" to a family member. Now don't get me wrong, noticing and commenting on the most obvious things in life is a good thing; it's a humane thing to do, and can even make someones day. For me however, I'm just always afraid I'll look like an idiot in front of others. That being said probably makes me look like an ungrateful, take-all type of person; but you'll find I'm quite the opposite. Some things just lack in common sense... something I've been trying to build for a long time.

What does this have to do with me? It's very complicated, so I'll keep it short.
I love someone, but fail at showing that. I'm pretty darn sure that's what she's waiting for... either that or I honestly am an idiot; more probable, it's both :) Well, I do have some idea but... I was stupid last week and let slip I was gonna get said person something. I still want to get something but I don't know if it will have any meaning or ...whatever, yeah nvm don't judge me. I always have to ruin things, eh? 'Tis what makes me who I am, I guess.

Anywho, everything being said, I'm in a jam (of oh so yummy fickle-berries :P) and have eaten my way to the bottom. How do I get out? Fu(k if I know. I want to solve everything so everything can be oh-so-happy and joyous once again, honest I do. But that's something that can only be solved by me. Point is to NEVER give up on anything you love, for only too soon may it be gone...

Hello again everyone.
How's the weather out there? It's pouring cats and dogs here, and I love it! Rain makes me so happy... Anyways school's almost done, first semester, and then it's a new set of courses to master, new friends & teachers to meet. :) I should really put up some more artwork but... gah! I'm gonna put up a slideshow of 2009 of my life. It will be superkalifreakinawesome! And yes, that's a word. :P


Now, TO THE POINT! First, this is NOT a suicide letter.
Everyone thinks about it at some point in their life; maybe you lost your job and gf/bf, and family seems distant to you, or many reasons, but it's OK. It's a normal thought. But if you actually carried it out.... just think of all the life you'd be missing. Times with friends, family, meeting new co-workers and going to the movies. Think about all the people you'll be leaving behind, how much they will be hurting; wondering what they could have done to prevent it. Suicide is NOT the easy way out. It never will be. Talking to a good friend or your family about anything that's troubling you will help the most, even if they don't know what to say. It gets the feelings out, and trust me, I KNOW this works. I've been there myself and talking solves everything.

Strangely, I somehow managed to talk about this without crying... I really dislike the subject altogether, but when it needs to be talked about, it's fine... Personally, I've (and I'm sure you have too) experienced a few friends, whom I know too well to let them ever let them do it, who've told me they tried, or seriously thought about it, and although that feeling hurts so much, we have to understand what they were thinking from their point of view in order to help them. And so we should. That's what good friends are for, to be there and to listen, no matter what the circumstance.

I'm writing this because someone I knew committed suicide sometime yesterday. He was someone I tutored for a year and a bit, and I got to know their family pretty well. And now he's gone... over what? Bullying. Simple as that. He's from the Middle East/Prussia, and people don't seem to understand it's not fun nor fair to treat them, or any other race/people, any different than you'd treat someone your background. So think about yourself and how you'd feel if someone was treating you like that, BEFORE you go and insult someone. It shows that bullying needs to be stopped.


Anyways, I know this wasn't very ... clear. LOL just some thoughts from me. Off to the gym now, I'll put up some more photos sometime soon... no idea when, just be patient.

Hey Everyone.
It's been a while since I last wrote an update... and this is kinda late for the events.

MERRY CHRISTMASHAPPY NEW YEARKWANZAAYULE-TIDE!

Whatever you may celebrate, I hope it was joyous and cheerful, with lots of family and friends around. I know I did, although you wouldn't even know it, as I tend to sit in the basement at my aunts and play pool or watch tv with cousins, or computerize. Overall it was great, with tons of food, drinking ;), and talking. Family is one of the most important things you'll ever have in life, always remember that... as I did shortly after we got home... nevermind though.

Ahh... 2010! I don't feel any different than I did in 2009, but then again, not much has changed. I haven't really made a new years resolution ... yet. I guess that it will be to make a new years resolution. LOL. Ironic, isn't it? Personally, I think that 2008 and 2009 are my favorite years - well so far, only being in High School means you have many more years to go. On the plus side, our very own province, British Columbia, is hosting the 2010 winter Olympics, in Vancouver. I would go but... we can just watch it on TV. No need to be there; I'm not THAT into it.

School is done in 3 weeks! ... Well first semester anyways. Then I got a spare block, English, Programming 12, and Physics 12. So it's not too tough a semester, but then again English is my worst subject. But I have developed a new way to try to fix that; I am going to try something new, something I've never really been into that much, or very good at. I will try putting written works onto DeviantArt, and hopefully will get better at it with the help of feedback.

Expect some pictures to come from the holidays, I can't remember exactly how many I have or if they were even good... (alcohol has NOTHING to do with that *cough*) but I will take a look when I get some time. OH YEAH before i forget, ITS SKI SEASON! I'm so excited as i got new skies this year, and will try em out soon. Probably this Saturday or Sunday. I'll post some pics of those too.

KiRaShi wishing you all well in 2010, "May the Force Be With You!"

EDIT: lol wow, looking back on this, it was a bit of a rant. didn't mean for it to come out like that, but it did. shit happens. now most people would change what they wrote if they didn't like it, but i like to keep what i originally wrote cause it helps me learn not to do it again... :P anyways, peace out everyone.

Wyrd bið ful aræd!

Hello, just a small, pathetic journal update from some guy no one knows... and here I thought I had life all figured out. Keeping up with school work, hanging with friends one weekends, trying to keep it together with family issues here at home; you know, all the regular shit that most kids live with.

Fate leads us down whatever preset path was picked in the past; all outcomes of the present and your future life are decided upon events and decisions in the past. In reality, we can never truly change our destiny, only alter the path we take to get there. Sometimes that path is full of wonderful happy bunnies, other times it throws your life into complete and utter chaos, leaving you with no direction at all. That's where I am. I think. Again, if I were there I wouldn't know, would I? I have no direction. :P

The state of no direction I'm in doesn't mean I have to give up though, and it doesn't mean there's nothing left. It's some kind of sign - not from god, I don't believe in that - but from a greater power... or in this case just the power that makes up our destinies. What happens when you receive a sign? Who the hell knows, but if it's something bad, I would advise turning to a a friend or family member, or just someone you trust dearly, and talking about it. Fortunate for you if you have one, as for me, I don't know who to trust anymore. I'm already a paranoid, Dutch-Scorpio, and that doesn't help in the least bit. I think I'll just go hide in a hole.

As for the reason I'm feeling like this, well I can't and don't really want to tell you - after all, you just found out I have trust issues - but it's a reason that brings back the past. I can understand that reason and I respect the decision to the fullest, no matter how much it hurts inside. What has happened in the past will always be there for us to remember, or regret, or to think about how we could have made it better, how we could have not messed it up for ourselves, or those around us who care. I'm not attacking anyone individually, or trying to take a stance or revengeful point, just giving my views on the subject.

Hmmm... I guess that last paragraph was directed only at people who know my problem... sorry everyone for boring you with something you know nothing about. And no this is not a cry to reverse things; they are the way they are because that's how fate has brought them upon me and I would love to fix them, no matter what, but that's not up to me, that's up to the powers above... or below. Anyways, I will leave you with a great song that represents me right now. Kudos to those who live long and prosper! And to those who've experienced pain and suffering, congratulations, you've just experienced the meaning of life!

Everything happens for a reason, even if we don't know what that reason is.
The past is the past; you can go back, but you can never truly change things once they have occurred.

Because fate cannot be cheated, it governs us, and we are all its slaves.
KiRaShi

Life by Our Lady Peace


How many times have you been pushed around?
Was anybody there?
Does anybody care?
How many time have your friends let you down?
Was anybody there?
Did anybody stare?

How many time have your friends let you down?
Just open up your heart
Just open up your mind
How many times has your faith slipped away?
Well, is anybody safe?
Does anybody pray?

Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive

How many days have you just slept away?
Is everybody high?
Is everyone afraid?
How many times have you wished you were strong?
Have they ever seen your heart?
Have they ever seen your pain?

Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive

She gets high
She gets lost
She gets drowned by the cost
Twice a day, every week, not a lie

She gets high
She gets lost
She gets drowned by the cost
Twice a day, every week, not a lie

Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive
All messed up, but we'll survive

-------------------------

Well, it's almost the end of the week, and I have got to say it's been a pretty good week. Started off with a test/quiz on Logo Design on Monday, and we did Physics labs on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, got another practice of equations for next Monday, and oh yeah, got out Logo Design test/quiz results back today. Most everyone epic failed on those; around 50-60%. I got 13/22, and I'm supposed to be one of the 'guru' people in that class.

FIRST OFF:
-------------------------
HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL YOU AMERICANS OUT THERE! Us Canadians already had Thanksgiving on October 12th, I don't know why it's different, but whatever; I'm sure you guys still get together with friends and family to feast, thank whoever your god is for what you have (if you believe in that kind of thing :P BTW, thanksgiving originates from ScandinavianNorseland countries, just for your info), and just plain have FUN FUN FUN! Food is soooo fun to OMNOMNOM :P and TURKEY+GRAVY=O.M.G
-------------------------

It's a Web Developement 12 class, which, I quote, is "A continuation of Web Development 11 (Level 1) course." I'm top of my class in almost any computer course, and know lots about webpages, HTML/CSS, linux servers (cpanel), and the like, and expected Web Dev 12 to introduce the students to those things, as it did last year. This year, the teacher for the Web Dev 12 course (who obviously can't be named for legal reasons :P) is, well, just plain doesn't know her stuff. We've learned how to use Basic HTML (already taught in the mandatory in Grade 8 Life Skills course at our school), PowerPoint (:O I never knew you could spend 2 whole weeks on such a simple program), and now Flash (she is 'teaching' us by throwing a bunch of video tutorials in a folder and telling us to watch them).

Anyways, she is basically more of a business teacher, and runs our school's store, which she is VERY good at, I'll give her that, and if I were to need any help with running my own business, I would definitely talk to her, but she does not know enough yet to be teaching an advanced course such as this one. The regular tech teacher (who I could name but choose not to) is busy this year, teaching IT 9/10 and Animation courses, and thus cannot teach Web Dev 12. If he were teaching, we would be learning advanced stuff like cpanel and PHP coding, not repeating grade 8 curriculum. Here is the curriculum for our school:
db Course Selection 2009-2010

Back to the test/quiz on Logo Design. I got 13/22 because I think she doesn't like the way I answered the questions. I answered them in such a way that ANY NORMAL person would be able to understand, but obviously not her... I will have to see her answer key tomorrow or something, but hell if I'm going to rewrite something so simple. We were even allowed to take notes :O and she said if we took notes with proper headings we would ACE the test. Well, here are my notes:
Logo Desing Notes

I don't know about you, but for a course where we learn Grade 8 material, those are pretty darn good notes. And I got 4/4 on the notes, which doesn't make sense, seeing as how I got 13/22 on the test/quiz. Whatever, I will sum this rant up with the line that some teachers are "Crackheads", as the title states. :P

BACK TO REAL LIFE:
-------------------------
Yearbook is coming along nicely, although not as good as the one I worked on last year, which we are thinking about entering into a Nationwide contest. And life in general, although it could always be better, is pretty good, but it could be prettier if only... nevermind, don't know where I was going with that :) Been doing that a lot lately. Guess my teacher's traits are wearing off on me; NOT GOOD. Oh well, Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving, and I hope you maybe go make a donation or give some food to the homeless man down the street... DON'T LIE TO ME, you and I both know he lives in the dumpster down the road, and has no one to spend Thanksgiving with, so for once be nice. :) Peace out y'all :P

Hey everybody, how are you all doing?

I hope summer has been spocktackular for you all, as I have been having a wonderful time :) It's been hot up here, above 33 Celcius for about a week, almost too hot, but we have a pool so I'm safe. Pools are fun, you can do many things in them, if you know what I mean :P

I WANT TO KNOW THE WARMEST TEMP YOU EVER BEEN IN AND WHERE! please comment

Just finished uploading my Macro-photography Flower collection eriksnow.deviantart.com/galler… and will proly get some more when I go back there in a couple weeks.

You know what the worst part about summer is? Going back to work, or school, college, or just getting back into regular routine. I want my vacation to last forever, and I want yours to too. :) Friends and family are so much easier to visit in summer as well.

Well, I'm done talking, leave me some comments if you would.

Yippee!!! School's almost done, and summer's rolling around. Only thing left to do is study for my exams, one in Socials, and one in English, but the English is done already so :D

Weekends have been great too, since every weekend for the past month or so I've been with the aWeSoMeST friends, and a guy we like to call 'Waterboy' because of his facination with water fountains. Future plans include seeing Transformers 2, and Harry Potter in IMAX 3D. We also have a camping trip planned out for the June 26-28th weekend, but my parents are being :S about it. I might not be able to go. :( FML

Hanging out, Rockband, late night movies, swimming, and a '73 Mustang Convertable have made our lives great. Shindou has made my life the best it's ever been since I discovered the massive world of Technology. Thank you.

Now I'm off to type up all 7 pages of Socials 11 chapter work for studying. This is gonna take a while. Maybe one of my friends will come and steal me, as my parents are not letting me make any plans with people until after my exams... meh... this gives me time to think. Maybe if I'm really good I can go on that camping trip. Wish me luck, best wishes for everyone out there.

BAI, KiRaShi out. peace. <3

Hey everyone! Long time, no post. It's coming to a close with school and everything up here, just got one more essay to do for Monday, then study for exams, then I'm FREE!!! After that I might actually be more inclined to upload some more pics, make websites, etc. I've just been really busy lately, thinking about... things.

I will try to get a job this summer; I realize how much I need the money, ME WANTS LAPTOP! :D
We also had a fair at the elementary by our high school, and I got to run through firetruck water spray :P and ride in a SmartCar for the first time ever! They're actually a really comfy, quiet, and efficient car; I recommend it for anyone's first car if you stay relatively in town, mainly because gas is so cheap. My friend says it costs him only $40 CAD ($45 USD) per month or so!

Anyways, I will write more when "school's-out-for-summer" :D
Byes

Hey everybody! I hope you're having a great spring/march break; I know I am.
I just got back from Tofino, Vancouver Island, BC, and I must say it was great.
This is the 5th time we've been, and this time there was lots of snow along the roads.
We stay at the Ocean  Village Beach Resort, which has cabins shaped kinda like boats coming halfway out of the ground. It's pretty sweet, huge long beaches for walking, skim boarding and surfing, and lots of homemade crafts and food stores.
I'll post some pics soon.

Yesterday I went to see the movie "Watchmen", which was not really that great. I'd wait for it on DVD if you haven't seen it yet. It would have been better if a certain person and her friends didn't ditch me and my friends, but w/e... (see my last journal entry if you don't know who I'm talking about)

i made this wallpaper for her too :D - eriksnow.deviantart.com/art/Li…

Anyways, I'm hoping to hang out with them today sometime... I hate delivering papers in the rain... Enjoy the rest of your break everyone!
Byee <3

OK. Here's my entry for January/February Semester change.
I had the best night ever on January the 24th.
Well, OK, I'll level with you. It was actually the 25th at 1:30 am. :P

Anyways, I've been meaning to tell a certain someone that I like her, but could never work up the courage to do it.
Not to mention she's having lots of troubles in her life already, so I didn't want to make it worse.
But I guess the caffeine, chocolate, and me being REALLY tired just made me snap, and I got it out.
After that, I was shaking with fear of her answer to it - but relieved afterwards...

That was the BEST TIME OF MY LIFE! And then I had to go and Fu(k it up for myself.
My brother was whining about going to school last night, and I just couldn't take it anymore.
(I have exams to study for, and our house is not sound proof anywhere.)
I said "Could you please stop whining? I'm trying to study." for about the 10th time, and he whined back, "ERIK! It's none of your business! Stop talking to me!", and my Mom did nothing.
(Oh ya, sorry Dad, I've left you out. My Dad would actually stop my bro from doing this, but my Mom is one of those "control freaks")
So then I said, "How am I supposed to study when he's constantly whining about going to school?", but in a very annoyed and mean way. So she flipped and started yelling at me. Then of course my Dad does too, but he doesn't mean it as much from him, because he understands. So now I'm grounded for a while.

Anyways, if you have gone through anything like this, please comment on it; we can support each other.
So, now you know of the thing that changed my life greatly. This and school are mainly the reasons I haven't been on dART for a while. I have 7024 Deviations, 2471 Journals, and 83 Polls to read... I'll read the most recent ones up to Xmas, but after that, I'm gonna remove them all and start fresh. THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR FAVOURITING OF MY STUFF!!! Right now I have a Math 12 Final to write, and I'm soooo not ready, not to mention I'm in grade 11, so my brain is like "WTF is this shit? I'm never gonna use this..."

Anyways :D, I'll ttyl peoples. Kirby says BYEE <(^_^,)>!
PS: I'm working on a flash-based slide show project right now, and I will be posting and asking of some help with it after exams.

Well, my family and I just got back from camping up at Miracle Beach Provincial Park, on Vancouver Island, BC, CANADA.

Actually, we got back on the 11th of August, but I haven't had much time to post any Journals lately, due to my music collection being screwed up. (advice: don't use iTunes!!!)

Anyways, it was great up camping. There was lots of biking trails to go on, including some that say no bikes allowed... and the weather was decently sunny, except for one rainy day. We had to stay at the Pacific Playgrounds for a the first night (Aug.5) because the campground was full... but we got in the 2nd night. It's been almost 3 years since we've gone back, and they've re-opened the Nature House, too. Will post pics soon....

On Tuesday we get to leave our island for Kelowna, BC, CANADA. I sure hope the weather won't be too hot seeing as how it's to visit family and go to a wedding. At least it's not in Kamloops, BC, CANADA. It's hot there all the time, except winter, of course. I'll post pics on that too, when I get back.

Anyways, back to re-installing iTunes (ugghhhh... why doesn't Windows Media Player work with iPods???) and manually adding all my cover art (that's right, i don't trust APPLE with my credit card) by clicky-draggy.

See yas all laterz, and Thanx for the favs and watches!
