Mega Man Party!

67+9867=98745

when i think of last year, i really dont think of joel much. I think of the empty room alot, but not of joel. t's strange. i wonder if he ever reads these anymore. iw ould think not. i dont know why he did in the first place.

I've been pushing atl tab all the time now, even when i just want to press tab or shift tab. I think it's really neat that computers have gotten to the point where you can do almost anything with just the keyboard, or just the mouse. right clicking has really been refined. it's great. I wonder if programs still use the third mousebutton.

something iwas thinking about.

i wonder what people such as the reecently immigrated migrant farm workers feel about things like the terrorist attack. I mean, they're americans too, but would an afghani consider them the great satan? i wonder if general population thinks about or knows about america's downtrodden. i mean, hippies like to talk about how american people are grossly misinformed dogs of the vile media, living in their own isolated bubble, but does that mean that other countries arent also? i wonder if they care, or feel sympathy, or just what they think about that. i wonder if it changes anything. maybe they think that america's down trodden are similar to their own plight as a people crushed by the oppressive world overseerers that is the satanUS. but back to the initially posed question; do the reecent imigrants feel the same sort of nationalism that americans with longer residence feel? We see all sorts of white patriotic stereotypes in the news aserting their patriotism, but have we seen anything else? no one speaking russian, or vietnamese, or italian, or spanish, with subtitles. (of course, I've not watched the news in some time. that's why i'm posing this question. I could be completly wrong about the lack of diversity in the media coverage (although if the olympic coverage is any indication, i dont think i am.) )
I know what the bible belt thinks (mostly because they have nothing better to do than tell other people what they think about everything] and i know what the instilled-patriotism-rejecting anarchists think, but i really have no idea what the various populations of people who do not have K-12 brand patriotism grafted into them since childhood (not that that's a bad thing) think. the people who have had to develop their own sense of american pride based on their life experiences. i wonder if I've made the question clear enough. i like it. and because this is my journal that is what's important.

i wish i had come up with the idea for this essay a week ago, instead of the retarded ass-one i came up with a week ago, cause I magically have all my ideas 2 days before it's due, but now I dont have time to leisurly edit it.

I did turn in my completed japan EAP application today. I put doshisha in kyoto as my first choice, and International christian university as my second, and sophia as my third.
Doshisha is nice, and has an ass load of both education and japanese classes, however most of the classes are in japanese, and i dont know if my japanese will be a college level by next year (althouhgh i will also be getting much more than 5 hours a week practice when I'm actually liveing in japan) however I think I'm gonna wind up at the ICU, because it has more english classes, and it's more set up specifically for exchange students. plus, it also has all the classes that I would need to take to continue working towards my major and minor. I hope i get to go. From what I hear, I'm practically a shoe-in. that makes me happy.

however silly this may sound, and evn though noone cares, I feel a level of professionalism with regards to my comic. I feel that piro and ian and bob and george's creator are my professional peers, and it's fun to look at their work, and their lives and stuff. I feel like I'm a part of that world. even though not many people read my comic, mostly because I stopped doing it for 2 month without telling anyone, and it's on geocities.

I cant wait to have it anywhere but geocities! in fact, I'm even tempted to just buy good geocities service just so that I can have it online quicker. I've kinda put it on hold until it's somewhere other than geocites. that will make me happy! huzzah!
also, when there is anyother urbanpirates stuff I want to work on putting urbanpirates stuff all online on the same server. maybe during december ravi will be able to work on uranus more. unless that's never actaully gonna happen. which is always a real possibility. but oh well. Making the comic justifies my life, and i feel really bad that it's taken so long to get off geocities. I wish I knew more about php and such, so i could just write it myself instead of relying on my very kind friends. sadly, i cant figure it out until i have a php compliant server so that I can fiddle with it. id ont know. baaa desu.
soon it'll happen. So often I find myself letting other people be in charge of things that dircetly affect me and not them, and then feeling powerless and frusterated. I really hate when i dont have controll over my life. especially during times when I should.


I left my wallet in PAlo alto, so i cant buy anything.
