Makeup, MMOs, Me & More.

My obsession with makeup, online fantasies, etc.

Yay! I'm happy there's no more physics lab! It's so long, and the teacher explains so much more than he needs to. That takes up most of the time in lab. But thank goodness he cut the lab short, and there was no conclusion or questions. It's a good lab too. Also, I got a good partner too - Desiree. She's cool. I even told her about that teacher trying to ask me out. It was funny.

Right after lab, I walked out of the chem building with her, and we separated once we got inside the library. I got to the 4th floor, and ran into a student who was in anatomy lab with me last quarter (Adam's lab). Her and her friend are going to do nursing. I asked them about the TEAS test and her friend said she already paid for it, but we can't sign up until December.

Maybe I should go over to the nursing department before class to figure out more stuff about it. Going to CSUSB Nursing doesn't sound so bad to me, even if it's three years. I think it would be a good pace for me. Two years at Loma Linda is fast, but I'll run into some students I've seen before here at CSUSB, not Loma Linda. I dunno. Any nursing school will do for me.

I can't wait to be a proud nursing student. Nursing is all I can think of. I know it sounds kinda obsessive of me, but it's really important I think about it all the time so I don't slack off. I still feel like I am, though.

I'm in the library now. I should study. Without much thought, I took out my physics book so I can study that. I don't wanna be so lost in that class anymore, so I'll start reading that. Physics is more interesting, and doesn't cause me as much stress, so I'll do that after maybe, or maybe I'll watch the chem lectures. I took the ear buds from my iPod with me so I could watch the lectures on my laptop in the library.

Wow. It's so much easier to type today. It's 'cuz I trimmed my fingernails on Sunday. I feel so much more free like this. Don't have to worry about breaking my nails or something. Yeah, I'm a bit paranoid.

Man, I don't know why I'm so easily stressed out! Let's list all the things I need to do from this point on to feel confident about my grades this quarter:

1. Read physics lab for tomorrow.
2. Do physics homework chapter 9.
3. Read psych chapter 12
4. Do psych quiz and discussion questions.
5. Watch chem lectures.
6. Do homework for chapters 23 and 24.
7. Catch up on reading for stats.
8. Catch up on reading for chem.

That's a lot. Everytime I have a task on the list - even if it's just one - I get all stressed.

It's just just this, but I have register for the CNA program at Chaffey on Friday, and figure out what I need to do to take that TEAS test that nursing programs require. I have to start thinking about applying for nursing school next fall now.


I want some spare time to play Maple without a worry. I wanna learn how to play with my new Maple trading cards. I wanna finish reading Harry Potter. I wanna re-read A Brief History of Time again, along with The Universe in a Nutshell right after. I have to finish reading the book Justin let me borrow, A Holographic Universe. I wanna scrapbook! I'd like to make holiday cards from all my scrapbook supplies.

Yep, so many things I need and want to do.

Oh yeah, and don't forget... I want more nice stuff from Cryoflesh! It's my favorite clothing store. Too bad it's online. :(

I showed Mommy the stuff I wanted from it, and it turned out that she didn't like most of the stuff I wanted to have. I'm disappointed. How am I supposed to get them now? *cry*

Today was the first time I've used a semi-automatic gun. This is a Glock 35! It's more complex than a revolver. I wonder what kind of gun they use in Silent Hill.

I'm much better with a .357 magnum revolver than a Glock 35 shooting from 50 ft.

The moment I got on the freeway, I started having second thoughts about going to class. Thanksgiving weekend starts tomorrow, and I know every place is going to be hectic this whole week - shopping malls, grocery stores, airports... What fun.

But here I am, in physics lecture, writing a blog entry rather than listening to physics facts and ideas.

CB wants to buy me stuff. I was looking around on Cryoflesh for all the things I want, and boy, do I want a lot of stuff to add to my wardrobe! I guess I'll have to post my wishlist up later.

I was at Justin's house last night. I met Summer, who I haven't seen in years! She's all grown-up and mature now, and she just got a job at CPK (California Pizza Kitchen). A bit different, but she's still energetic as usual. She's gotten pretty too.

Justin showed me some cool games he's been playing. One of them was Hellgate: London, which looked really cool 'cuz of the wonderful graphics and I've always had a thing for guys dressed like S.W.A.T. team members with big guns in their hands. All that armor and weapons. It's hot. So you're playing a shooter, and you're blasting away at zombie-like mosters and weird flying things that you could imagine came from hell.

He showed me another game, I forgot what it was called, but it was a complex strategy game like StarCraft, but much more complex and wonderful graphics. Looks like strategy is his thing. He seems to like it a lot. Justin said that right now, we don't have any computers that were made to handle graphics like this game. Whoa.

Gee, it's freezing in this lecture hall.

After Justin showed me some of his games, I spent the rest of the night playing Silent Hill 2 as he watched and gave me a back massage for a little while. He gives excellent back massages.

Good times.

I told Daddy that I would be home at 10:00 PM, but time passed by so fast, and I forgot to turn my phone's sound back on after class, so I got tons of voice messages from Daddy when I looked at my phone again. Obviously it was time to go home.

That's it.

I have sooooo much reading, homework, and studying to do this week. So much! I hope I get that done with time left over to play Silent Hill. :( I've been missing that game so much.

Something super awkward happened just an hour ago. Guess what?

I have physics lab every Tuesday from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Starting two weeks ago, I started seeing this guy come into the classroom to visit my physics professor towards the end of class. He's been coming into the classroom ever since. In and out.

I did notice he likes to look and smile at me a lot. I thought it was because he saw that I looked like one of those ideal students that a teacher would want in his class - always wants an A, and asking questions and looking for answers.

The first day I saw him in class he was standing right there next to me as I asked my teacher about my midterm grade. Since he was nearby, I didn't want to just block him out of the teacher's conversation completely, so I introduced myself to him and asked, "So you're in the physics department too?"


I guess his glances toward my direction must've been about something else as well. Today, I saw him walk in and out of our lab room. He would come out of the door from the back of the room and it seems to me he was passing by my and my partner's table more often.... Trying to look like he was checking out how we're doing on our labs. He came by once while me and my partner were working. He stopped at our table another time as I was finishing up my last sentence for my conclusion.

He stopped and stood on the same side of the table I was on, look right at me and said, "I was wondering..."

There was an awkward pause, and he was looking straight at me... I knew this meant some kind of amazing special question was coming up. I was thinking, "Uh oh."

"...Will you go out with me?"


I was like, "OMG. Now what?" So I said, "Sorry, I'm not interested in seeing anyone right now. I'm really worried about school and stuff. Sorry..."

Not sure what happened after that. I guess he nodded and was like, "Okay." He then disappeared into the hallways. Gone.

I felt kinda bad. I don't like saying no, but I really don't wanna go out with an older guy like that. It's awkward. Plus, I'm with CB.

Before he left, I asked him his name. James. All I know is that his name is James, and he works in the physics department. He looks Asian, wears glasses. I think he's a professor. He's about middle-aged....or maybe around late thirties, early forties.

Okay, he's not a professor. He's a lecturer/instructional support technician. But still... No.


I got my second stats midterm back last week. 77%! No!!! I missed 10/13. :(

Gun competition two weekends ago. Fun! I thought I did pretty well. I was confident that I would get a trophy, just don't know which one. I'd be happy enough getting something. My dad was proud of me though. That's all that matters.

"Sherry, don't worry about that guy shooting better than you," said Daddy. "He had a modified gun."

"I thought you weren't supposed to have modified guns in the competition," said Mommy.

So I didn't feel bad.

I wanted the big trophy, but I was sure I wouldn't get it. It turns out that the big trophy was for the best team. I only did solo, but I feel good about that. Don't have to worry about people bringing each other down with their bad shooting. :)

I was disappointed that they didn't have the scores to announce until the end of the week. Everyone would supposedly find out who won and who placed by reading the newspaper. We all had to go to the party last Saturday to get the trophies.

What a good night it was. I made my parents proud.

I won first place in the women's division! :D Yay!


This last Sunday, me and Daddy went to Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World to look at guns, ammo and targets. We picked a number so we could look at the guns, but it was taking forever, so we didn't get served. We even walked all over the place, looking at archery stuff and other stuff. We came out with a pack of those green splattering adhesive targets, a pack of bright orange adhesive targets and Turkey, my new member of the family in my room. SEAL, Mallard and BOO have a new friend now!

We went to Magnum Range again, and that was fun. I love the green splattering targets 'cuz I can see where I hit from far away! I found that these bright orange target spots really do make a difference. My groups are so much smaller! I'll have to try it from 50 ft to make sure. The super-nice group in the picture was from only 20 ft.

I'm just happy I'm shooting better every time.

Statistics: 100%

Physics: 18/25 = 72% (but somehow the teacher considered this range to be an A-)

Chemistry: 135/150 = 90%

I don't know what happened with physics.

And I just finished the psych stuff just now. I turned in Assignment 2 (a paper about gender roles portrayed in a children's storybook) hours ago, did the Ch 8 quiz without reading the whole thing and got a 14/20, as opposed to getting 17/20 or 18/20, and hurriedly wrote up the discussion board response and stupidly wasn't paying attention to the clock so I ended up turning it in one late. This sucks. I didn't have very much time to read at all, but still... I know I can do so much better than this.

Next time. More assignments, more exams. More points.

Finally, that chem exam is finally over with. I hope I did okay on it. Likely to be either an A or B, but I'll be disappointed if it isn't an A. And really sad if it's a C. I don't wanna go back to Cs again.

So that test is done, but I still have so much more work to do. And my parents want to drag me all the way to the Thai temple in North Hollywood to exchange the karaoke and watch the Thai pageant and eat Thai food with them. Great. Psych is the most time-consuming homework of all these classes because of all the reading, and this week I have a writing assignemnt to do. *sigh*

And now Mommy just called and told me to make a birthday card for Charles and Rowan, the sons of Auntie Wheng, one of the ladies at work.

So many things in my way. The many tasks I have to do... That's all I can think about.

At least when I have a little bit of spare time, I'll just read some of those childrens' books I checked out from the library today. I wish I got more cool books as presents when I was a kid.

Studying so hard on chem. I might have to take it on Saturday after all. Just to be safe.
