OKAY SO I don't even know where to start. I guess it's been a while.

LIST OF THINGS THAT OCCURRED IN THE PAST MONTH:
1. I moved into my apartment. It's newly painted and the carpet seems newish, so it seems like a pretty nice place to live! (The ceiling is poisonous, and mold might grow after it rains, but ehhh.) We had to go buy a ton of things, so things got a bit stressful. It was also the hottest weekend there of the summer or something; such good timing! I actually started putting my desk together myself, and it was going pretty well until I stripped a screw and promptly threw a fit and stopped working on it. In the end, though, everything was successfully set up! Except I don't have a bed.

2. While down there, we stayed in Poway! Poway had a really "small town" feel. I can't really explain it, but it was definitely like that. I really hated it~ Small towns and I do not mix.

3. Some other stuff must have happened in August, but hell if I remember.

4. My friends and I had a High School Musical marathon of all three films in a row! sob remember when I hated those movies and didn't idolize them (yeah, me too)

5. I was given Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box the day before my birthday. I think I like the story better on this game, but the puzzles better on the last one. Anyway, when I'm done with it, I'll probably make a spoileriffic post, since it's just... It's just really getting into some strange situations this time around. And Luke is so weird, tee hee.

6. Anyway, I got lots of awesome stuff for my birthday! Two volumes of Train*Train, several volumes of Lovely Complex, the complete series of NewsRadio, the first season of Veronica Mars, Advent Children, Lego Star Wars, the complete series of Clamp School Detectives, One Piece Color Walk, an awesome t-shirt, and astronaut food. And apparently I'll be getting some Young Avengers graphic novels, if the company actually sends me the right products this time! (I was sent a self-help book about dealing with arrogant people instead. I got a good laugh out of it.)

7. Yesterday I received X-Men Misfits in the mail, which made me way happier than it should have. Anyway, I'll most likely make an entry about it tomorrow or in half an hour because there are parts of it that just irritate me. I just feel they dropped the ball. They could have easily gotten a fantastic, well-developed plot out of it, but instead they just threw random stereotypical shojo elements at the board without bothering to really do anything with any of it.
At first I thought Kitty was just going to be dating Pyro, and since I'm "ehhh..." about Pyro, I wasn't that into it. But then it turned out Iceman was going to be her real love interest! And that pleased me, since Iceman is not-so-secretly my favorite X-Man (OTHER THAN QUICKSILVER) for completely ridiculous reasons. And I was mainly like, "Now I can ship Pyro and Iceman just like I did throughout the movies!!" BUT THEY BARELY INTERACTED; I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. Plus Iceman has the personality of a dry log. ...Also, I don't even know why they chose to drastically change Quicksilver's personality in it, but whoever is in that graphic novel is not Pietro. At all.
Anyway, I know a lot of people are going out to buy it just because it's "shojo X-Men," but I'm not going to pay $12.95 for a gimmick that I could get for free on deviantart or fanfiction.net.

I GUESS I'LL LEAVE OFF THERE AND HOPEFULLY NOT DISAPPEAR FOR ANY LENGTHS OF TIME AGAIN.
