So, my friend called me the other night and wanted me to go with her up to Knoxville to pick up her friend, who was coming home to get his truck before going back up to Fort Dix.

Let's just say.. I know a lot about her friend now. LOL.

Sometimes, I think my behavior is self-destructive.. but I usually say, "Fuck That."

This... Is my last chance.

So, finally.. it has come to my attention that I really need friends.

I mean.. I have friends, but I need friends for me. Like... My friends like me, they think I'm funny.. but they don't understand my hobbies.

My old roommate Lauren once said, "I like hanging out with you. You're interesting." Implying that my unique-personality perplexed her and she wanted to know more about the enigma that is Laurie.

My hobbies include; Video Games, My Chemical Romance, manga/anime, drawing, & foreign languages.

Most of my friends; Only really play games I don't really get into (I like Japanese RPGs, Survival Horror, & whatever the hell Katamari Damacy would fall under), know that MCR sings Helena which I sang at the Talent Show my senior year of high school, have no idea what manga means & think anime is for little kids, like my drawings because they can't draw, and only know spanish & german (neither of which are my focus languages... I'm more of Japanese/Russian person.)

That being said.. UTC is my final chance at finding some friends. I recently found out that there is a group that is trying to start an anime club at UTC.. so I will definitely try and find them.

"But Laurie.. you're so social online?" I am social online, because I can be myself without caring about being judged. However, in real life.. I hide in the shadows to be off of radar. I'm afraid of being ridiculed.

I used to have a couple of friends who liked what I did. But people change over time.. and in my case.. sometimes people change into the monsters of my nightmares.

The inner nerd in me is crying out.

Do you know badly I want to Cosplay and go to a convention?! YOU HAVE NO IDEA! I haven't been to a Con since 2004. 2004!!! AWA. I dressed as Sango from InuYasha. I had so much fun. I don't think I have ever been so happy (Well, besides MCR concerts, that is!). The fondest memory of that day was walking through the dealer room and having a girl dressed as a cat walk up to me and ask me to bear her children. LOL! Also, there's when my friend at the time, dressed as Haruko from Furi Kuri (FLCL/Fooly Cooly), stopped a guy dressed as Miroku and yelled, "DON'T YOU TOUCH HER BUM! I'M WATCHING YOU MIROKU!" And when I ran up to a girl dressed as Duo Maxwell and said, "I LOVE YOU DUO!"

It just sucks that I don't have anyone like that anymore.

That's why I have to do this. I have to find some friends.

Only problem is.. I need to find the rare breed. I remember now that, in most cases, people who like anime/manga... usually don't do what I do. (As far as my habits of smoking & drinking.)

I suppose I could hide my habits until I am comfortable with talking about them.

I just want someone to be nerdy with. I'm tired of people looking at me and saying.. "What is that?!" "Oh, that's cool.. I guess."

I want someone to say, "THAT IS SO COOL!" "AWESOME!" and sincerely mean it.

xx L.

I still like to take things from other people's blogs.

I stole this from Brigid.

1. Post 9 facts about your character - I'm doing this with my favourite D&D character I used to play with. ^_^ Laguna.
2. Tag 8 other characters.
3. Post their names with the creators avatars.
4. No tag backs :I

1) Laguna tries to be smooth with ladies, due to his devilish good looks, but completely fails due to his lack of common knowledge.

2) I based his actions and name from a character of the game Final Fantasy VIII. Only difference is that my Laguna is a Duelist (Originally a Swashbuckler & then epic leveled to eventually a Holy Being.)

3) He wanted to always be the captain of a ship. However, he was always belittled by the female Dark Paladin, forcing him to serve under her whenever they were on the sea.

4) He never liked fighting, but was very skilled with his Rapiers. (Later acquiring one of darkness and one of holiness, bringing them together to destroy himself, being reborn as a holy being able to wield both to destroy Cthulhu.)

5) He is a Pirate (Swashbuckler) and possesses a unique eye-patch, that helps him see into the ethereal plane.

6) He was the only one to survive the fight with Cthulhu, when he brought the two opposite rapiers together, the explosion killed his party members.

7) Like his Final Fantasy VIII counterpart, his leg cramps up when he is nervous. (Especially around attractive women.)

8) Most of his party hated him, especially the insane mage that insisted on sewing monster parts onto his own body.

9) If I rolled correctly, Laguna had the chance to end a fight in atleast two turns.

I don't wanna tag anyone. :P

Today's Lesson: Awesome Foreign Music (Part 2)

Last time we talked about Foreign Music.. I talked about some Anime Opening themes that I liked.

This time I will move to actual singles from Japanese Pop Stars that I like. ^_^

So let's start this off with a song I just rediscovered. The song is called "Look Back Again" by Hitomi Yaida. I liked how the song was up beat and really happy. Plus the chorus is really catchy, I would catch myself singing just the chorus sometimes.

This next woman is VERY popular in Japan. She's amazingly beautiful and her voice is amazing. I have so many songs that I like from her. Her name is Ayumi Hamasaki. If you like anime, you'll recognize her as the voice behind the ending theme to InuYasha "Dearest." One of my favourite songs that she sings is called "EVOLUTION." The video is so awesome. Just watch for yourself.

Next is a singer who has actually released a pop album in the US. I started listening to her back in 2003. Her name is BoA*. You may recognize her as the voice behind the ending theme for the anime InuYasha "Minna no kimochi" or "EVERY HEART." However, she doesn't just sing in Japanese. She also releases singles in Korean & Chinese. This is an example of one of those songs. I absolutely love this song. Its from a band called "Tong Vfang Xien Qi" which I think is "Dong Bang Shin Gi" or "Dong Bang Shin Ki." I don't know for sure, they're from South Korea. (In Japan, they were called Tohoshinki.) This song is called "Tri-Angle" by Dong Bang Shin Ki feat BoA & Trax. I would also like to mention that these boys are very attractive. ROFL.

Next is a man, that I absolutely love. I have such an obsession with him sometimes. He's very popular. If you know ANYTHING about Jpop/Jrock you know Gackt. He used to be in the Gothicesque metal band Malice Mizer. Hearts.

Next is another band I like also. This band is called "Larc En Ciel." I like them. LOL. This song is called "READY STEADY GO!" which is from the anime "Fullmetal Alchemist" (Yes, I watched the first few episodes and I didn't care for it. LOL)

That's all for now. Please enjoy! Hearts.

xx Laurie.
