Sorry, sorry, SORRY! I am SO horrible at keeping up with this thing. -sighs- Anyways, now that the most stressful part of my life (hopefully) is over, I might have more to time to do stuff like this again. I'll try REALLY REALLY hard! I promise!

For now, I've jsut graduated from a zookeeper school and am in the process of trying to find a job and jumpstart my career.  We'll see how that goes.

Because I've been so busy lately, I haven't had much time to actually get on my own journal and post anything. (Luckily I've been able to keep up with RPs though. One point for me! ^_^) And, yes, there has been a lot of stuff goin on. (Hence the reason I've been so busy lately..)

Sunday we went to the haunted houses. Which were okay, but the train was the coolest. The "Terror Train" drives by and people jump out at you, but this time we got in a tunnel, it stopped, and the lights went out. Engines start reving and all these people jump out with chainsaws running up and down the train. Chainsaws (the sound anyway) scare the hell out of me but that was the coolest part. We also went on this ride we never did (because my aunt hates going backwards.) They had it decked out for halloween with black fabric making it a completely closed in ride and strobelights. It was awesome!!!! We have a new favorite ride now!! (considering we rode it three times in a row) But next year we're gonna try Hollywood Horror Nights at Universal

Other than that, I believe that's it. Tata for now!!!

[music |Miracle ~ Cascada]

Weeeelllll.... I've finally back and ready to update!!!!

To say the least it was a pain in the you-know-what to get back here so I'm not going to elaborate on that much. Let’s just say that I’m glad it’s all over. So instead let’s focus on everything since I’ve been here (just after September 4).

First of all it’s been somewhat stressful. And I’m starting to realize something…


Read MoreCollapse )

Went the movie theaters and saw a seriously effed up movie Crank. We went to see it because I had free passes (although it cost $13 just for the two of us to see the movie!!!! Plus an extra 14 for candy and pop!!!) and that’s what we decided on since we really liked Transporter and Transporter 2. She likes Jason Statham or whatever his name it. Yeah, that movie was interesting to say the least. He has to keep his adrenaline going or he’ll die. So what does he do? Convince his girlfriend to have sex in the middle of a busy asian street. Nothing beats his wonderful, “I’m alive!!!” as all the schoolgirls and spectators cheer for him. Before that we went to Olive Garden for their Neverending Pasta Bowls. Wonderful experience as usual…..

I traded in some of my unwatched, unwanted cds and dvds and ended up getting the Friends: Season Finale and Cascada’s cd Everytime we touch. I like that song but my favorites are Bad Boy and Miracle. I also ended up buying the NGE: Angelic Days Volume 2, (Still not sure of my own opinions.) and NGE Volume 5. I enjoyed that more than the anime version (I think)…..

But nothing beats this headline…… For those of you who from FL or who have ever been there during May-April and/or September…you know this all to well….

IT’S LOVEBUG SEASON!!!!!

God I hate that time of the year!!!! For those of you who don’t know (lucky…) lovebugs are these weird looking bugs that are basically attached together and mating all that time (yes even while flying in the air). I can think of some people who would like that ability…. But they tend to fly in swarms and although not dangerous or poisonous or anything, they are still such a pain!!!!! They’re everywhere!!!! And you can’t get rid of them!!!! This year they’re really really bad, getting in the house and everything... You have to watch where you step and touch because chances are there’s one or a pair resting there…. I’m ready for winter…..


Heh, my current "mood" actually describes the expression on my face right now. How ironic....

Yes, hopefully this time it will really happen. Since the whole threat with Ernesto is for the most part over (for us anyways), it looks like I might finally be heading to FL this weekened. If everything works out okay, we'll be leaving either tomorrow or early Saturday morning and heading south (it's only like about 5 or 6 hours). I'm more than ready to go back home.

There's a problem with the internet down there (expired virus protection) so until we get it renewed I probably won't have any internet access for a while. Looks like I will taking the cell phone though and as far as I know I get service down there. I will try to post and respond to RP threads and comments as soon as I can.

So I will talk to you all sometime, just not sure when!!! ^_^

[music |Land Of Confusion ~ Genesis]

Even though I haven't been on the internet I have been busy at my laptop.

First of all, I'm still working on my own customized mood theme, there's still something I need to add to it.

As for my own updates, as of right now I should be getting back to FL around Labor Day. But (yes time for more bad news) the virus protection on their comp expired and we already had problems with it before so it's not to be used until we get it renewed. My uncle is supposed to be working on that so we'll see how long that takes...


And even though it's obvious, I had to add it...







Which evangelion character are you? (Ultimate Quiz)




asuka...you're obviously very mature, but really angry and have little patience for stupids or weaks, you 're perfectionist, but have a great heart, that tolerates everything...it is just it takes time for you to accept it. Your great magnetic personality makes you have a lot of people that cares about you, even when you are mad,....very mature and a great friend!!! ^^

Well, I know it's been a while, and I've been busy and going crazy!!!! But I've kept myself doing other things to keep me from going insane.

First of all, I watched 8 Below. I love dogs and dog sledding and survival stories and I was all excited to see it. Was.. I had heard things about it but I was still ready. I could handle it.

Skip for SpoilersCollapse )

So, overall I hated it.

Next, I bought Angelic Days Volume 1 (Evangelion). It wasn't all that great either.

Even more spoilersCollapse )

I'm looking to buy the next two volumes when they come out in august....

Oh yes, I've got new Asuka mood theme. I'm using this one until I finally finish making my own! It's made by linachu Enjoy!

Other than than just been really bored at home... so that's all for now!

[music |Engel - Rammstein]

I know it's been a while since anyone has heard from me...

Unforuntately this is not all my fault. Having the entire family here isn't helping much either. It's all just a big headache.

Annnnnd, since it's that "time of the month" it's even worse. I'm crying just about everyday over stupid stuff and so over emotional that no one wants to deal with me. No one luvs me.....

(No, I don't PMS during that time; i do it all the other time, instead I get extremely emotional and it's just bad.....way way bad....)

I've been working on my fanfiction and I just had this really weird dream last time. I'm not going to say a whole lot about it, but it really inspired me. As soon as I woke up, I wrote down every detail I could remember (which was surprisingly a lot for once). I think it might make a really good scary story, but I need to go back and fill in a lot of ideas and empty fillers the dream left me. (After all, I was the one starring in it and none of the others were anyone I know and I don't remember their names)

So hopefully I'll get that done and all and have a really good original fiction for you all to read. I'm not sure how long it will take, but probably a few months. Maybe it will be up around Halloween.

Sometime this month we're supposed to hit the beach, go to Savannah, water parks and amusement parks. And I have to be in FL by August so this will be interesting.

Hopefully this week, I'll be back on to respond to RP threads and comments and leave comments on friends journals.

Til then....

Since I know that a lot have been wondering.... [Jun. 17th, 2006|05:26 pm]
Katrish
[mood |contentcontent]
[music |Bad Boy ~ Cascada]

Why Asuka?

Well, for several reasons. First of all, she's just amazing and you can't argue that. I mean everything that has happened to her and she's still good as what she does.

My friends always said that if I were ever an anime character, it would be Asuka. Why? Well here's the simularites (and not all in a good way):

1. Temper: I have a very, very bad temper. I can go off on just about anyone and have scared them half to death. I get angry over just about anything and usually I'm the one instigating fights. My poor guy friends are usually at the receiving end of it, and they have to deal with my ranting and, uh abuse. (I have a bad habit of throwing things. I never grew out of it and some of my friends have had my cell phones, books, silverware, pencils, balls, and other things directed at them. And, yes, I do have good aim. ^_^) Yet, at times, I appear so cute and innocent that everyone has to say, "Awww, you're crazy. How could something so innocent and sweet-looking do something like that?" Heh, I've got them all so fooled....

2. Insults: Yeah, I'm such a great friend that I insult everyone. Either just teasing or being serious. And soon, I began dong it in other languages.

3. German: No, I'm not full german. As much as I wish I were, I've got just a little bit of german in my blood. Ah well. However, since I lived in Germany for a few years when I was younger, I do know the language somewhat fairly well. Well, all the insults and cursing anyways. Half of my friends can't speak or translate german, but they know a few words because of me. ^_^
Among my favorites (and constantly used): Beissen Sie mich! Dummkopf. Halt's Mal! Verdammt! Schiesst. Mein Gott. And several others. I sometimes speak German, especially when I just want to be mean and confuse people, since they can't figure out what I'm saying.

4. Give Credit where it's due!: Yes, I volunteer a lot. I do lot of other things to help others, and I know that the joy of helping others is supposed to be good enough, but would it hurt to praise or reward me for what I do? My mom could care less and it drives me crazy that she never wants to be recognized for her achievements. It could also be because I brag about it? Nah....

5. Other things: I don't really have red hair, but it is a reddish-brown and at times, does appear very red. In the summer, my hair changes colors (literally) and it looks red and blonde, especially in the sun. Asuka is also a Sagitarius, (now doesn't that explain a lot?) and we both share the same birthday: December 4!

So..... after my friend listed all this stuff, (and got whacked upside the head for pointing out my bad "traits") I decided to sit down and watch it. And loved it! Even though they were right...

So, there I hope that answers your question. Now, excuse me, but I have to go and kill my sisters. They went into my room. They know better than that...... *sweet innocent smile*

[music |Faster Kill Pussycat]

Well, after laying down for a bit, my creativity finally took over and I realized that I was bored and tired of my original journal. So I decided to snazz it up a bit.

I love my dog but the layout just wasn't very me. Since it's summer here (and we've already had our first named storm) I thought about doing a summer theme. That wasn't to hard to find images for, but I still couldn't find anything I liked.

Since I'm from Florida, and going back there soon, and I love the ocean, I was set on doing a beach theme. So I was scouring images on my laptop and found several of one of my favorite characters that included a beach and swimsuit thing. I also decided to completely redo my whole theme. And after tinkering around for a few hours, came up with this. Icons are subject to change, once I find some better ones for theme.

For now enjoy my new LJ theme:

Okay it's been a while, but a long of things have been going on. For one thing, my family is back to stay again, for good this time. So everyone's been busy getting the house set up.

Also the tropical storm went right by us and we had several bad storms for a few days.

*sigh* Not really much to say I guess. I went out the other day and bought a few Evangelion DVDs. My little 6 yr old sister has been watching them with me. Since the family's here I can't stay up and night and watch it anymore, so I just pop them into my laptop! XD

Finally, it will all be over, at least for a good long while. I leave to go back to Florida this weekend and shouldn't be going anywhere else for the next few months, except coming back here to visit.

As I'm not feeling all that great, I'm back off to bed. I might be back on later.

This is just wrong!!!!! Damn Breed lists! [Jun. 1st, 2006|06:16 pm]
Katrish
[mood |infuriatedHell no!]

This is in response to xxlonelypixiexx post about the pitbulls.
I started to just leave this as a comment but I realized I had too much to say about it. I know the post was to persuade people to vote against it, but I have more to "represent" the pitbull's cause.

Unfortunately that law has already been passed many times in other places. In Kansas a kid was attacked and killed 2 summers ago. The entire state went crazy and has banned all rottweilers, pitbulls, german shepherds (in some areas), dobermans, chows, wolf hybrids and all other breeds considered dangerous. The only way you can have or adopt any of these is if you live out in the country (far out and even some still ban them) or on military posts.

I did a huge paper/speech against the banning and euthanization of pit bulls and I found lots of evidence against it. First of all these "pitbull attacks" that have made all this regulations are most of the time not even caused by pits. Know what attacked that kid? A doberman (if I remember right). Not a pit bull but a doberman. If you look up most cases that have made big news, most of the time it's all a case of mistake identity. I watched a case of court tv against a pit bull and it's owners and the stupid people didn't even have pit bulls! They had some other breed that somewhat resembles them. They realized the mistake too late and many pits were already died by then.

Now how dangerous is the pit bull? More dangerous than other dogs, that's true. But think of their backgrounds. They were bred to bring down bulls (hence the name) so they would have to be mascular and "mean." So it's in their blood. Having worked at a vet clinic I've worked with all of those "dangerous" breeds, from german shepherds, rotts, chows (my grandparents used to have a lot of them), pits, and even a wolf hybrid. And what were the msot dangerous dogs there? Only a red heeler, doberman pinscher, and corgi actually ever bit anyone in over a year there. There were over 10 pits during my time there.

The solutionCollapse )

Oh yeah, here's some quick stories about very "dangerous" dogs. Can you tell what breeds they are?

A. He came in as a stray. He was at least two years old and was beautiful. Jet black with a white star on his chest. Nothing was known about him, he was jsut picked up by animal control. He had one problem: intense fear of men. He would growl and bark when men walked by his cage. He never charged the cage but ran away from them. He'd let females do whatever they wanted. We brushed him, clipped his nails, messed with him, locked him up, even wrestled with him, and he was well behaved.

B. He came in as rabies investigation. The brown dog had attacked his owner without reason and practically ripped his hand off. Since they family had young twins they had to have him euthanized before he attacked again, since he continued to do it. In the clinic he tried to bite all of us and attempted to tear up his cage to get at us.

C. He was a pie-bald white/brown neglect case. He had lived tied up on a front porch in the sun and had no idea what affection really was. We used to be able to play with him, but one day he just started to change. He scratched and bit several of the techs and vets and we knew what we had to do. Humans had ruined his life and we had rescued him too late.

D. She was hyper, always jumping around and happy to be petted. Also came in as a stray and was completely black. To say she was beautiful would have been a lie to most, but she was a puppy at heart. The man who adopted her was scratched when he met her, but he just said he would clip her nails and continued loving on her.

E. She was also rabies investigation. She had snapped at her owner. She spent most of her time in her own little carrier and wouldn't come out. Finally she trusted me enough to come to cage and get petted. Her golden fur had been hidden in the shadows and she was beautiful. Later found out she had snapped because he came up to her too fast and surprised her.

Another brilliant idea! (or not) [Jun. 1st, 2006|03:37 pm]
Katrish
[Current Location |Family's Home]
[mood |creativecreative]
[music |Stray - Wolf's Rain]

Okay so I got this idea the other day. I'm going to make a soundtrack about my life. ^_^

Okay, okay lame idea, but one I came up with. When I was in Freshman English we had a project to do about our lives. We were supposed to write about important things that described us and other stuff like that and make it into a book. (okay so it was really just a folder with papers in it but you get the idea)

Another time we had to find poems that described us and our life in 10th English. We also put those in a book and stuff.

So why the "brilliant idea"? Well it just came to me last night. I was watching "Whose Line is It Anyway?" and they were doing one of those skits where they have an album that describes something. Later I was listening to a song that a friend said reminds it of me. And so I got this idea to make a sountrack about my life.

Each song will describe my personality, views, beliefs, feelings, emotions, or events that have happened in my life. To make it easier for everyone to understand I will even try to include the lyrics and point out the ones that fit. I've started making a list now so I should be adding more info about it soon. Look for the first song sometime this week or next. ^_^

Oh yeah, in one of my classes we had to design a cd cover. It's from when I was a freshman but I still like so I'll probably use that.

In Other News..... [May. 6th, 2006|04:17 pm]

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

I just find out something today that I would have liked to know sooner.

Me: Wow, all of your kids seem to have problems.
My Mom: Yes, all of you did.
Me: Yeah, I never have anything wrong, but when I do it's major and serious, like mono and the whole broken finger thing. Luckily nothing else for me.
My Mom: Well, actually, I happened to think of something last night when I was talking to your grandmother. You had a seizure when you were a baby.
Me: *blank stare* I what? And you waited 20 yrs to tell me that???
My Mom: Well, I didn't realize it til last night.


So, something else to add to that list:

Serious things that Trish has suffered through...


1) Flu I had a bad strain that knocked me out of school for a few days and once I got back, I had problems with my legs.... don't ask.....

2) Wart It somehow strangely appeared on my palm, under my thumb. It was hell getting rid of it, but always cool to watch and experience the freezing and slicing they did on it...ooo it was soooo cool.....okay sorry about that, but it was....

3) Broken finger It happened during basketball practice and I just thought it was jammed. So I walked around for 2 days with a swollen, rainbow-colored finger until my friend forced me to go to ER. Even then it was so cool. The doctor (whatever that branch is called) told me all about the anatomy of my hand and growth and all that.....way cool.

4) Let us not forget the strange unexplained case of mono that hit me. I never kissed anyone around that time and now all my friends/family boycott public water fountains. I think I was the main entertainment in the ER that day, after my mom and I got back up when we hit the floor after finding out what I was sick with. x_X

5) Not one, but TWO cases of Chicken Pox Yes that's right, I'm one of the few who has had the "one-time-only" disease twice, both when I was younger. The first time it never really bothered me, the second outbreak knocked me off my feet. German chicken pox was way bad......

And now this new bit of info....

6) Seizure Wow, the things you find out almost 21 yrs later......


Oh, and 3 (maybe 4) of these were spent in the ER....... yes, I hardly ever get sick, but when I do it's extreme cases of extreme stuff....

Mom's right. None of us ever have normal problems....... XD

She's always been tiny and eats a lot but never gains that much weight. At almost 2 yrs she doesn't even weigh 20 pounds.

Anyways so we go tomorrow and deal with all this. Lots of hope, luck, support, prayer. And hopefully it won't turn into anything serious.....

RIP Lil Bit [May. 2nd, 2006|09:08 pm]
Katrish
[mood |crushedcrushed]

My aunt called me Sunday afternoon to tell me some horrible news: her cat "Lil Bit" had died. No one knows what happened. My grandmother found him out on the upper deck. My uncle thinks he was bit by a snake. We don't really believe that any animal got ahold of him because he was able to get up on the deck, which is a feat when there's nothing wrong with him.

He did, however have Herpes when he was kitten. And like most of the other animals at my grandparents, he came as a stray. He had had all his shots just a few months ago, so it was because of that.

I think he was an Egyptain Mau (that cat from the new Catwoman movie). They are more like trained dogs than cats, and that's how he was. He had a strange meow besides his usual ones and he had a unique purr. He would sleep on our bed at night and take up about half the bed himself. He really was the baby. He would bat almost anything around on the floor that he could find. And he was sometimes caught eating dog tricks.

One of his cutest antics? When I would give him a treat he would stand up (he was a loooong cat) and grab my hand pulling it down. Soon he started doing it whether I actually had a treat or not. He will be greatly missed and my poor aunt and grandma are mourning. (Yes we mourn over our animals. They are part of the family.) Poor Moussie and Precious (the two females) seem to be affected as well. We will all miss our "Little Man."

Lil Bit is the one in the middle. Moussie is the other dark tabby, and Precious is the one with the white. I'll get better pics up when I get back to Florida.

Our Little ManCollapse )
