Eternal Glory

So I said I was going to post my screenplay and so I am going to post it!  The title is the same as the journal entry's.  I'm not happy with the title but like I said in my last post I'm bad at thinking of titles so this is what I'm sticking with for now.  It's the Trojan War from the persepctive of a common foot soldier, someone not really special compared to the heroes we all read about, I thought it would be more interesting.  But I'm also obsessed with ancient Greek warfare so I couldn't resist writing something about it.
If you read it remember that it's not suppose to have a lot of details in it, just basic actions.  Seriously, my inner narrator was cutting herself the whole time I was writing this lol.  It was hard in the beginning to not put details in but eventually I shut that narrator in the closet and was able to control the urge better.  So this is the result.  When I pasted it into the page the format didn't turn out right but it should be good anyways.  Not sure how to make sure the format stays correctly so this will have to do.
Warning: 18 pages aheadCollapse )

NaNoWriMo and other crap

So I was going to post an entry last night, but then when I got back from doing a bunch of stuff ASU's internet wasn't working.  Because asu is suckage.
Anyhoo before I get distracted but my amount of hate for ASU I will say what I was going to say last night.  This year I'm going to be participating in NaNoWriMo.  www.nanowrimo.org/  <- there's the link for those of you who don't knnow about it.  Now I shall post some unnessecary pictures to grab atttention.
   

So... yay!  I'm still debating whether I shouls post what I write here everyday or not.  Because it will be unedited except for a short spell check and therefore total crap.  But yeah... still debating.

In other knews over the weekend I was cleaning out a draw in my desk at home and I discovered a comic I used to draw back in my freshman english class in high school.  It was about two stick figures names Bob and Joe.  And it was called... *drum roll* Bob and Joe.  Yes, a very creative title from me I know but I've always been bad with titles.  Now I shall post another picture because I need to give you commentary instead of just posting it.  Warning:  Very crappy hand writing ahead.



Just to let you know my hand writing still looks that bad.  My sister says that ever since I learned to write it hasn't gotten any prettier looking just smaller.  I take that as a compliment.

In other news I had to write a 20 page screenplay this week for my film class.  It turned out to be 18 pages instead but I'm hoping that won't do that much.  Would he rather have just 18 pages or 2 pages of crappy filler?  But the teacher doesn't seem to like grading even a little bit on content at all so it worries me a little bit.  I shall be posting that screeplay here sometime later.  Maybe tonight or tomorrow who knows.

Oh, and I've decided that everytime I post here I have to put something interesting, whether it be a picture, scrap of writing, whatever.  That Bob and Joe strip is the interesting thing in this entry.

Nostalgia

So I've been going through my earlier journal posts and I must say its been rather amusing.  I said some of the most random crap lol.  But I find it funny so whatever XD  I need to start doing those entries again instead of neglecting this site.  I really enjoy it when I'm on here but I'm so bad at keeping up to date x_x

Anyways I'm going to write a real entry tomorrow, with some actual news and goodies.  Not that anybody will read but whatever.

I'm going to take a shower once Lord of the Rings ends in a few minutes.  Yes, you do in fact need to know that bit of information.

Well until tomorrow I say adieu!

Irritated

Is there some website I can go to where I can pretend I'm blowing up the earth?
So somebody posted a bulletin on myspace about Palin and I was pretty disgusted by what it said so I decided to google it to see if it was true or not and I was even more disgusted by what I found.

She doesn't support funding for rape kits.  In Wasilla, where she was mayor from 1996-2002, they make the vitims pay for their own rape kits.  That's just disguting.  They're already a victim of an absolutely horrendous crime and now you're going to have them pay money so the criminal can be caught?  The chances of a criminal being convicted without any forensic eveidence is basically zero.  So many women are ashamed to speak up about being raped already and then making them pay for the test?   Even more of them wouldn't even bother to go to the police.  According to what I read a test can cost from 300 to 1200 dollars.  One of the "reasons" Wasilla has victims pay for the test was to lesson the burden on the poor little taxpayers.  When it only costs around $14,000 a year to pay for the tests!  I think the citizens of Wasilla can afford that.

This has "blame the victim, help the criminal" written all over it.

Haven't rape victims already gone through enough?  And now they have to PAY money for being the victim of a crime?  It's disgusting.

Do people have to pay money when they're house in on fire and they call the fire department?  Do they pay money when somewhere breaks into their house and they have to get fingerprints?

Why should this be any different?

It's so Anti-Woman is unbelievable.  Well actually it is is believable when you see the person it's coming from.

And why does she not want to fund rape kits? 
Because they can have emergency contraception.

"Oh, you were raped and got pregnant?  That's too bad, you're going to have to have that baby whether you want to or not.  Women are just machines for reproducing the species, nothing more"

Women aren't machines, we have lifes to live, and are bodies shouldn't be controlled like this.  Women don't "choose" to be raped.  We have every right to go outside, and the fact that its unsafe to walk around by ourselves is something that needs to change.  You always see what "the woman did wrong".  What about the rapist?  Is anybody ever going to condemn him?  Didn't he do something wrong?  Maybe, but lets just talk about how women she restrain their freedom instead of trying to fix the actual problem.z

Maybe she didn't start the policy or maybe it wasn't her idea.
But the fact is that she SUPPORTED it.
And thats enough for me.

And when she says that if her daughter was the victim of a rape she would still choose for her to have the baby (apparently her daughter's feelings about it wouldn't matter) I've lost even more faith in her then the zero percent I had to start out with.

I'm so absolutely disgusted by this I can think of any words to describe how I feel.

I Hate This


Ugh, I don't want to go back to college tomorrow, well, actually today, seeing as how it's one in the morning.  It's the worst in the world.  I only like one class, I hate everybody there, I can't stand my room mate, I get blisters on my heels, and I can't get away from any of it because I live there! Argh!!!  I hate college.
Everybody lied. 
I've always heard that college was awesome!  Or it was the best time in my life!
Well not for me, it absolutely sucks.  I'm an extremely shy, I feel awkward around people girl who has to be surrounded by people I don't know constantly.  My room mate is always bringing random people into the room so I have to deal with them when I can't handle social situations.  And they're all party people so they're crappy humans anyways.  I can't live in a place where you have to interact with people all the time. I need my space, and I don't have any of it.  I just want to be left alone.
I like being alone.
I mean I like having friends, I want friends.
But I only talk to one other person here and thats it, I haven't got anybody else to talk to.
But I can't bring myself to talk to anybody because of this damn social fear.
I'm so used to people finding flaws in me and using it as a joke and degrading me all the time.  I just don't want to have to go through that again when I finally got rid of it in high school.  So I'm afraid to interact.
I don't fit in.
And I know people say that all the time but I mean it.
I've never been good at making friends and people never seem to want to be mine anyways.
And I'm fine with not fitting in, it doesn't bother me.
It bothers me that because of it I'm always alone.
It's a double edged sword.
I want friends but I also want to be alone.
God dammit.
I don't want to go back.

Listening to depressing Lost music isn't helping this at all.


Sorry for this depressing emo rant.  I've been getting overly emotional lately.
Sorry if this all seems like very generic teenage crap, I don't mean it to come off like that.
I'm usually happy but recently I just haven't been.

Ben singing "Be Prepared" from The Lion King.

It's a submission for Lost Video Island's August competition.



Go ben!

random thought


Is it just me or does Meryl Streep look really hot in the Super Trouper scene in Mamma Mia?
I mean seriously, she does right?

I'm not attracted to females in any way, shape, or form, but I digress...

Katamari on the Rocks

So I was talking to my sister yesterday and she was saying that her and her boyfriend plan on dressing up as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett for Halloween.  Which her costume is going to be hard as hell but I was already thinking that once I got better at sewing I'd like to try making that costume for fun.
Anyhoo just a few days ago as I was listening to Katamari on the Rocks I was thinking about how awesome it would be to dress up like the prince.  I'd be partially blind the whole time but it would be amazing!  So, yeah, I just have to figure out how to make the head.  Wire?  Board?  Don't know.  But I'll shall figure out.

Yes, I'm in college.  Yes, my sister has already graduated from college.  But halloween and dressing up is fun so I don't give a damn.

blergh

I really want to change my journal so its less personal posts and more posts of things I create, like videos, artwork, various things revolving around humor that I'm constantly making.
But I'm so slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow.

Seriously.

Anyhoo I recently joined Lost video Island and I'm going to enter their August contest and I have mostly everything planned out.  Except that I don't have the last disc of Lost season 2 on my computer yet.  I have every single other episode (except season 4 obviously) copied, formated correctly, cut into clips, and put on outside discs, except for those episodes.  And the video I'm planning to make has a lot of scenes from those episodes.
Now I could just take the disc and copy it to my computer but I don't have the disc with me.  It's in my dorm and I'm at home.
*cries*
Guess I'll just have to find the clips I'm looking for on the internet but they won't be the best quality ;_;
*cries some more*
