Journal settings updated for a brand new go at things!
Profile construction underway - to be completed in a day or so. Input would be appreciated!

As of 1:22 tomorrow afternoon, my Spring Break officially begins!
Do you know that in my five years as a college student, I have never gone anywhere new and exciting for spring break? It's a bit depressing...I could definitely use some sun therapy. And I've got my next wave of exams and presentations due the week after! Who planned this?...

To Jillian, Dracona, and watchers:

Sad I think that we have failed so entirely in the past with concern to this journal. Reading the profile reminds me of a better time when we the mighty US shared the same state, not to mention the same living space.

I am making it my lastest endeavor to reestablish contact with this community through posts, reflecting the changes wrought in our lives since that year of Dracona's initial departure and mine following.

Updates will be forthcoming, both in journal entries and in the revamping of our profile.

Silent Bob speaks! -

Felt the need to update this little project which truly is dear to my heart. When so much goes on and so much goes wrong, we often forget how slowly the hours can move if only we make the days for them.

I find it simply repulsive to have been driven to insomnia over my worry regarding college and work. I have remained jobless for nearly a month now, having spent all of two weeks at Kohls before cracking under the pressure of retail. The fine break in my psyche, I dare say, is now a full-blown compound fracture. My neurosis has developed into psychosis...which I hope we will be studying in Psychology 101 come spring.

On that note, I have finally taken the intiative to call the necessary professors in order to iron out my transfer credits and my class capabilities, thereby straightening my schedule. I was closed out of only one class -Race, Class, Gender. Rather insignificant when one recognizes I was granted Population Bio & Evolution (and lab), American Popular Culture, Intro to Psychology, and Yoga. Yes, it's only a 13-credit course load. Measley compared to those I took at Sweet Briar. But no worries, I'll get myself off the ground and into the game...and hopefully back into the water come March. I've arranged to stalk the diving instructor -as I am much more humorous in person- and hope to arrive at an arrangement which involves me brushing up on my bubble blowing and scuba-ing my way to certification.
I really miss being in the water. I wonder where we'll go for our open water dive. I've been in Lake Erie in the spring, and I question if I could hold out against its ~50 degree chill again. I'm a tropical breed of snorkler. All my Russian blood boiled up in the Bahamas.

Orientation for transfer students is being held on Friday 12 January, with classes starting the 13th. Fortunately I have no Saturday class. I also managed to wheedle out of a Thursday class, giving my socially-deprived form a rest during the oppressiveness of student work. Is there a scientific tag for feeling claustrophobic around other people? Perhaps I shall investigate that before attempting to sleep tonight.

Signing out, this is Reanis

The mighty stalker is now hunting deer in her home state, having abandoned ship SBC...aka the HMS Happens. Figure out that anagram or perish, so threatens the Cap'n.
But tis true indeed that I am recuperating for a bit and searching for seasonal work until spring semester, whereupon I shall metriculate to a different venue of collegiate learning.

Do you see what happens, JB? You take off and the bubble goes to hell!
Ah well, we'll always have the landshark...and, thanks to Dr Rob, the awkward turtle.

Slash does not seem terribly enthused regarding our frosty falls, her snakepit growing less VA tropical by the hour, but she like so many snakes before her shall adapt. She hasn't shed for over a month, leading me to believe she has reached the size the terrarium will allow. She's currently about three feet and at the moment I am in no financial position to purchase her a larger tank. I need to look appropriately presentable for my job hunt...I and the numerous animals need to eat after all.
Current pet count:
- 5 bettas ~Demetrius, Banquo, Maive, Crowley, Motley Spectre
- 2 red-eared sliders ~ Gamera and Dude Crush
- 1 black rat snake ~ Slash
- 1 mischevious cat ~ Gizmo
- 1 shepherd/husky mutt ~ Rebel
- 1 little brother ~ Frankie

ps the new incarnation of Guns n' Roses will be performing at the Quicken Loans arena in November...I can't decide whether I am excited or repulsed. I am a die-hard original Gunners fan and my loyalties lie with Slash, Duff and Matt. I keep up with Izzy's albums and Steve's band, but Axl and I have a one-sided love-hate relationship. I support Velvet Revolver before the new GN'R and I'm not sure I want to pay money to see what ammounts to Axl, Dizzy and a tribute band. I shall continue to ponder...
