I really hate you for this, Gravity...

Great. Just great. 3 hours and absolutely nothing to do. Gravity just had to mess up and I can't play RO. *throws random things at them* WHY TODAY?! It could have been some other day. Darn. Can't do anything about it...maybe I'll oekaki or something...I just remembered Soph's and Jacq's b'day...it's tomorrow. And I dunno what to give them...Soph likes FFX-2...Jacq...I dunno. *sigh* I can't draw some people charas for some reason...nah...I'm sure I can get something considered okay for them tomorrow...did you know Jacq got a can of Green Tea from a senior as a b'day present? And Soph got bra straps from...someone. O_o;;;;

Hope these 3 hours will be a kind of blessing in disguise or something...maybe I'll do up my webbie X_x It's really pathetic now, and I *still* can't get the colour scheme. What 2 colours go with a rainbow background anyway?! Odd.
Besides that...maybe I'll spend time doing a proper oekaki pic for once X_x Sometimes I think I'm worse off than Lu Xun (I'm sure Liu laoshi explained why he chose Lu Xun as a pseudonym...that was last year O_o).

Gaaaaaaaaah. *hits self* I just had to not find the Kapra staff in Morocc. And got myself killed by a Farmiliar in the pyramid the last time X_x Now I see why no one answered when I asked where the Kapra staff were. I believe I was standing right in front of them. *hits self again*
Nooooooo...it'll probably be Monday/Tuesday before I get to level up Frost Diver...and next week in a worst case scenario to get to Napalm Beat lv. 2. *throws more random stuff at Gravity* I believe I should stop crapping here and go enjoy the RO art at deviantART...X_x Ja mata minna.......................

f a l l e n p h o e n i x [ R I S I N G || from the .ashes.]

Heh...don't know what's got into me lately...just a few minutes ago, out of what I called boredom, I signed up for a LiveJournal and a Diaryland (wish it were less spastic) account. Looked through it...here's the pros and cons...

Can upload pics
Can choose different languages in which to display your blog/journal
Messaging system
Can have friends list
Current Mood icon selection w/ available styles
Current Music

Upload only 3 pics
Language selection is only partial - Japanese only covered 70% of the pages. Still too easy to read for English-oriented people.
Cannot edit page html directly unless you have a paid account
Blog designs aren't as good as Blogger's
Don't get a subdomain - http://www.livejournal.com/~yourusername

Free email address forwarding - yourusername@diaryland.com and/or [anything here]@yourusername.diaryland.com
Can edit html directly
No ads

Design of site is really kid-ish - diaryland.com sounds like something you don't want to brag about
Designs are positively horrible - all repetitions of the same style except for 1 of them.
Cannot upload pics with free account
iframes are too tiny to look at properly - difficult to edit html code etc. Unlike Blogger.

Come to think of it, Blogger's already a really good blog host...the ads are annoying, but not really. LiveJournal takes forever to tweak the layout into shape. Diaryland.com sounds very uninteresting. Layouts aren't as good as Blogger. So if you've been complaining about your Blogger blog being so irritating, try these 2 and you'll appreciate your blog more.

Tomorrow's V-day. Wishing all of you a Happy Valentine's Day~ (you too Icarus-chan if you're still reading this... ._.) I feel so loved for this year's Valentine's...I actually received little gifts from others, I feel so guilty for not returning something o_O Specifically, I got a little note-thing from Tragic-chan (I'm sure you know who...) and the little blue transparent bead(that looks like a damage counter in Pokemon TCG) with my name on it :D People are so nice...

This blog is so empty right now...I dunno, but I have the feeling that Ic-chan isn't gonna post here or something, probably not like, forever, but maybe for a really long time...then I'll be posting for no one to read, and it'll be pointless talking to myself, and this blog might die out when even I lose interest in it...so until I can confirm that Icarus still visits, I won't be posting on the taggie-board...to preserve the comments that were left there...

Look, I really don't wanna lose another friend...I lost one in Maggie already, which lasted since Pri 3/4 when we split up to go to different GEP centres, and we still remembered even in Sec 1...then...it just disappeared in a matter of days. Friendships may take one year to build, but may take only one minute to break. I hate losing friends. I don't like being alone...like in Tao Nan...Pri 5...I remember this thought I had at home...I told myself that I would try not to cry, even for just one day...now that I think of it, did I ever cry everyday? When I had hardly anyone, any friend who would stay by me, someone I could talk to regularly...and with people who talked behind my back, not even afraid to show that they were doing so, it's like, not really surprising that I think Pri 5 was the worst school year I had...but of course there are the other little things...like Vivie, who did become one of my close friends that year.
As I say this, I find it's so unlike me...I've hardly ever shown a sad face in school since last year...Ic-chan, TELL ME YOU'RE STILL ALIVE. *jabs*

I find myself deviating from the topic far too often. Mmm...let's see...here's some of the more interesting sites from the IT symposium held last Saturday in ACS...note that they're all done by students.

That's all...I've been blogging for a really long time now. Ja mata.

O_o Weird...yesterday my Jap right brain training teacher's son called me that...specifically Jie Xin nee-chan. Hahaha. He envys my art, so my teacher says...but has not patience to learn ^^;;;

Playing RO for some time now...XD Became a mage, now lvl 12, job level 5 I think. Cold bolt lvl 2, Lightning bolt lvl 1, Quick Sp recovery lvl1. Hope to get one of those cards in the future that grant the skill Heal lvl 1 XD Considering the amount of intelligence a mage/wizard has, this will heal tons of hp XD

Now to crap about what happened last Friday. On RO I mean. Location was right side of Geffen...
I was walking around the area and discovered this guy lying there who didn't disappear for like, more than half an hour ^^;;; So I dunno if he was dead or something. Quote a mage passer-by: "Pity, pity.../Died soooooooo young..." *lol* Then later this assassin guy came around and gave poison protection to anyone he saw...not for any reason I suppose, 'cuz there are no poison enemies there ^^;;; Later went on to Prontera and to the desert area (specifically Ant Hell) and did 80 damage to Dropses in the area. XD Sadly I got killed by a Familiar (hate those things -_-) in the Ant Hell and was warped back to Geffen...shoulda've saved at the Kapra corp. thing in Prontera. *was too impatient*

Anyway, out of curiosity...why choose the name IcarusX? ^^;;; First thing I thought was, "Hey, that sounds like CycloneX..." ^^;;; I'm asking not because I have a superinflated ego or something, but rather out of oddness. Heh.

Anyways(again), I believe it's time to stop blogging (IRS proposal corrections ^^;;) Ja mata minna! XD
