My Newest Obsession 1.5

Though obsession with Oban Star Racers has not faded I seem to have picked up another one. What? you ask two obsessions at once? How does your head not explode? well the answer my dear readers is that my head has already exploded that's right I'm walking around, watching Oban Star Racers and reading this new manga with no head. Don't ask how I do it I have no clue. but what is this fantastic new manga that has robbed you of your brain case Rin? yes I'm sure this is the question you are all asking. the answer is Tsubasa Resevior Chronicals. yep I used to watch Cardcaptor as a child so I thought I'd give it a try and found that it's super fantastic! the four main characters travel from dimention to dimention through the use of a small white creature named Mokona (I even have a Mokona hat, it's adorable, but I look kinda funny in it.) for the purpose of finding Sakura's lost memories.

I got this letter today

I just received this via facebook and I think everyone needs to hear something like this every once in awhile in their lives:

Hello, ladies!
I just wanted to send you all a little note of encouragement at the time of the year when you might need it most.Things are getting crazy with school, you're probably wondering how in the WORLD you are going to accomplish everything and still have spare time to sleep every once in a while. The more you think about all of the things you have written in your planner for this week, the more stressed you get. And the more stressed you get, the less you accomplish. It's a vicious cycle that you just can't seem to escape! Even thinking about all of this stress is getting you stressed out!Stop. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath.You are a wonderful, beautiful human being. You are more than capable of succeeding. There are people around you that love you and support you. There are people praying for you (I know I am!). Tomorrow is a new day filled with potential for great things, not another worry that we should add to our plates.Take some time today to think about the good things in your life. That's the quickest way to brighten a stressed out, crummy mood.Never forget that I'm here for you.You are beautiful!-Megan

Megan, whoever you really are and wherever you are I just want you to know: you're super awesome!

My Newest Obsession Part 1

Every so often I acquire a new obsession the intensity and length of duration of my obsessions varies from object to object of obsession. My latest one is Oban Star Racers. Though When I first saw the ads for this show some three years ago I had a very low opinion of it because I couldn't get over the fact that they have no noses, which is still weird. watching it now, however I barely even notice the main character's lack of smelling apparatus. I can overlook it because the story is far more in depth than I would have expected. I had first assumed that it was just some random racing show like IGPX or something. The main character, Molly, starts out on a search to find her father after he abandoned her at a boarding school when her mother (who was a racing pilot) died. she finds him working as the manager of the racing team that is to represent Earth in the Great Race of Oban. This race has the potential to shift the political balance of power in the universe. not to mention that the characters are amazing! I think my favorite is Don Wei, Molly's father though I'm not entirely sure as to why...

allow me to explain

My brother and I were only getting his micro chip registered at our local shelter so that we could have peace of mind when we let him run around outside. we went early in the morning before it got hot thinking that would be better for him. apparently our local shelter doesn't open until noon however. so we had to return later.

ARGH!!! Why?!?!!?!?!?!

Hey Vincent here,

I woke up this morning in a pretty good mood. Rin and I had a little party last night and things were going great. THEN Rin and that weird tall bearded on with the annoying black dog put me in that stupid carrier and stuck me in the car and drove me to guess what??!?! a SHELTER!!!! they freaked me out walk up to the door stood there for a while and left! Then just after I let my guard down when we returned they put me back in and drove me to the same shelter. we actually went in this time and Rin put me on the counter and they waved this bizarre thing over my shoulder and they endlessly talked about who knows what. I was entirely convinced that I'd done something wrong and they were going to leave me there. but we just got back in the car and came back home. What the heck is going on here?!?!!?!?
