hope everyone is well. been busy past couple of days with reading hw and hw.last week i managed to see Stomp the yard, Apocalypto and Unhappily Ever After. Didn't enjoy Stomp the Yard that much. hopefully next week i can see Arthur, Children of Men and Pan's Labrinth.
I didn't work this week because i got suspended from work for a week. I didn't do my correct duty as a cashier.
I bought some cool comics this week. still have a couple from last week that i didn't read yet though but i am slowly catching up.
Heroes was awesome this week. too bad i probably have to start watching it online every week because i probably will get scheduled to work monday nites.
Friday nite my team will have its first softball game for the winter season. We were supposed to have our first game last week but it rained and our games were canceled.
This weekend is Phoenix Comicon. can't wait to go karoeking. hopefully they have some new anime songs to sing. don't know what i will be doing for food though since i ran out of bread.
Next sunday is the superbowl.
I started watching Rave Master on youtube this week. the anime skipped the beginning of the story but it still is cool.
registration hasn't opened up for the power rangers convention yet.
got a hotel reserved for anime expo in long beach. now just need to look for people to room with. If can fit 6 people into a room we could probably bring price down to $100 per person for the hotel.guess we will just have to wait till the event date gets closer i guess. last 2 years it was in anahiem but this year it is in long beach.
Dmitry- have fun starting school on monday. heh.

hello friends and family,
hope the new year is going well for you all. well it is the first day of school today.it was good seeing and hanging out with most of you during the holidays.
i got interviewed for a game tester position before the holidays but i ended up not being hired. i managed to get a couple of bookshelves together and organize my room at my parents place. hopefully my mom won't mess up my room. (U too JOSH!!!)
i had a safe drive back on saturday. sunday i pretty much relaxed. i did some luandry and i read like 10 out of the 45 or so comics that i am behind on. hopefully i will be able to catch up on them later this month.
i didn't clean my shower before i came to la. it sure is dirty. hopefully i will find some time to clean it later this month.
camilla- hope you had a safe flight to canada
arash- i'll ttry to take the quiz later this week that you sent me. hope you don't get tired of having to drive everywhere for your classes.
i ended up getting 3 A's , 1 D and 1 F for my grades last semester. i ended up get a D in the maya animation class which i surprising because i thought i would get an F in it. I didn't turn in the last two projects because i didn't have anything done. i got an F in 3d MAx modeling because i didn't have the time to catch up on the assignments that were assigned.
i will have to try and work on the animation so that i can add it to my portfolio. might be able to get a 100 out 900+ frames done this semester.

|what's up with me
been a while since i wrote and talked to some of you guys. in the past few weeks i managed to see The Prestige which was really good i think; Saw 3, one night with the king, which were alright. i also saw Running with Scisscors which wasn't that great. I saw Borat last night. It was really great to watch but definilty not worth seeing twice or owning it on DVD.
Missed he Hereos episode last nite because i had to work. gonna go and watch it after i write this probably or after i do my Japanese hw.
decided to goto Golfland arcade since i haven't been there for a while and wanted to play a game i haven't played in a while. However, the games are not there anymore. One of the games can be played on a modded playstation 2 that can play exported games. Guess i will just have o wait till anime expo to play it again.
i went over my cell phone minutes last month and got charged $75.
went and bought a pc game that i preordered back in august but i don't have space on m computer to play it at the moment. i downloaded a lot of anime episodes and j drama episodes and haven't gotten to watching them. i also bought a art book and strategy guide to Final Fantasy 12 even though i won't buy the game till probably christmas or next christmas. There is a collectors edition out for the game and if it is still avaiable this christmas i will probably buy it cause i want it. if not i will just wait till the price drops down.
all i have left to take to graduate is an internship and a portfoilio class, but don't think i will take them next semester and my dad doesn't want to get another school loan so i probably will just try to take 1-4 units and work more hours to pay for school next semester.

i ended up getting 3 A and 1 B. I got a D on my final essay in mythology and ended up getting a B which was cool. while at home i saw cheaper by the dozen 2, fists of fury, yours, mine and ours, only the strong, just friends and a few others. saw all the episodes of princess nine anime. it was alright. Was able to download episode 128 of prince of tennis before it got taken of the net because it seems that cartoon network has just licensed it. I saw The sentinel with armin and arash. it was great hanging with them for a couple of hours. I pretty much was home most of the time unless i was out with the family. i called up most of my friends to let them know i was in town, but they were pretty much busy or forgetful. Anastasia ended up calling me a few hours after i returned to arizona. didn't get a chance to her again. i have fungus on my right foot. putting creme on it every night.
saturday - today i got woken up by my roommates at 630 am, and stayed in bed till 9 or so. went to comic book store around 11 and got some comics because of free comic book day. Had chipotle afterwards and then went driving around town. I went and checked out place called Amazing Jakes. Kinda like chuck e cheese but they have a buffet, laser tag, bumper cars and few other stuff. Headed to golfland arcade to see if they had anything new. It was packed. never been there on a saturday before. went to another comic book store afterwards to get another free comic.
got on freeway and headed north to check out a few malls. i ended up finding 3 Island restuarants and 3 in-n-outs. also found an arcade that has Killer instinct 1 and 2. i checked out 3 malls. two of them werent really interesting.
the interesting mall was outdoor. It has a AMC theater so no free movies for me there. hopefully i will not have to work friday or saturday nites ones of these weeks and i can get to go there and hang.
school starts on monday.

had fun at anizona2. played a couple of games of stoner flux, munchkin and Risk:godsend. Also played this card game called King's Blood. the artwork on the cards is very cool. bought some comics and artwork, a nami action figure from One piece, and some closed box figurine of Eureka cause one of the female characters looked cool. I ended up getting her which was cool. haven't put her together yet. Have yet to see the anime. I also managed to sing a few songs at karoke which was fun. I haven't done it a a convention before or for a while. I told my roommates that i was going to be gone over the weekend and they told me that they would clean the place up, but they didn't. I ended up going back and forth each night from my apartment and anizona. I went to bed around midnight on saturday and my roommate ends up bringing friends over from work and wakes me up around 2 am. did the same thing the next night also. glad that i will be moving later next week.
|Monday, April 10th, 2006|

only got a couple hours of sleep from friday nite and saturday morning 4 am - 9 am. there was a comic book signing going on at 11 so i wanted to get there early and get in line cause i had work at 1 pm. MTV ws there also doing a casting call for some new show so i filled up some papers and had a small interview with them. I got a call back today from them and they are gonna come to my apartment on wednesday and do another interview with me. hate to see what they will think of my messy apartment because of my roommates. did hw on sunday. went to the park for our softball game, but both teams ended up forfieting because we both didn't have enough players.

|end of spring break
came back home yesterday from spring break. it was a waste not staying an extra day. my aunt was hacing a party that night and i could have probably saw a friend or two that i didn't get to see. I came early in the morning because i had things to do but didn't really do them. it was raining off and on when i got back to arizona. my apartment kitchen was a mess when i got home. none of my roommates cleaned out the dishwsher or toke out the trash while i was gone. One roommate said that he was gonna clean but he was sick. well as far as i know, he hasn't cleaned anything. he didn't have work today and so far all i know he did was go out with his girlfriend for a little bit and play some video games. Our microwave wasn't working eithier when i got home and my roommate said that it hasn't been working for a few days and none of them bothered to go to the apartment office to tell them that. didn't goto anime club cause it was raining. we forfieted our softball game cause we didn't have enough players but we still played a little bit with the other team.
i haven't been on livejournal much to read about your lives. hope your all doing ok. don't have internet connection at home cause my messy roommate who uses my utensils and steals my food, cannot afford it yet. busy with work this week as far as i know tomorrow till friday.
