"I like your Cloud pin."

Me: "Huh?"
Girl: "I like your Cloud pin."
Me: "It's not Cloud, it's Bleach."
Girl: "Huh?"
Me: "It's Ichigo from Bleach."
Girl: "Oh I'm sorry, I thought it was Cloud."
Me: "It's okay, it happens."
Dude next to Girl: "You do know who Cloud is though, right?"
Me: *laughing* "Yeah, of course. "

Just a little highlight from my first official night training in box...

Oh by the way this is Cloud....
He's from Final Fantasy 7.

And this is Ichigo...

He is from Bleach.
I honestly don't know how you could mix them up.

anyone know a good hypnotist?

i think i'm going to need one with how scared and freaked out i am over starting college....

I have officially registered for my classes and have found a way to pay for it myself. It will drain my savings, but I think I would rather have it this way than owing someone else money. I have an english class and a class for social science (People and places of the world). Next semester I need a math class, but I am required to take an accuplacer test because my ACT score wasn't very high. I also hope to take a film class next semester as well.

Orientation was yesterday, which wasn't bad. The campus isn't that big, so I shouldn't get lost. I will have my first ever class in a portable, something I have avoided since jr. high and am very proud of, until now.

I think the only thing that is worring me is the social science class. I only know a little bit of what it is about, so i'm scared that I will have bitten off more than I can chew.

Like I said..... anyone know a good hypnotist?

It's Levi-O-sa, not Leviosa...

On multiple occasions I have been astounded by the masses. When Twilight came out we had multiple midnight showing and a lot of people tried to dress up. Transformers was almost the same deal, just no dressing up.
Harry Potter was more like Twilight. Many people dressed up, waited in line for 4 hours at the most, and many decided that the movie was worth a trip to the concession stand...

We did much preparation before hand so that saved us a lot of trouble, but I still felt flustered every time I heard something running out, or when everyone was coming to our ice bin cause the other 2 had run out, add the fact that from 10 on we never shut off the poppers made it quite the experience. By the end of it all though we did what we could and stayed happy.

There had been talk amongst my friend of going in and seeing the movie on Wednesday night. I said that i would be interested in going, even though i have not seen the fifth movie nor have I read the 6th book. The movie wasn't sold out so I was allowed to use my employee passes which worked out pretty well with how many people we had in our group. It was all just people I know from work which was really nice.

I will admit now, I am a Dork with a capital D. I dressed up for the movie. I was the only one in the entire theatre who dressed up for that day. I went as a dementor, so it wasn't a major costume or anything (though I realized I could have said I was a death eater too) but I still felt like a dork. However, one of my friends at work said that if he hadn't worked that day or knew that I was dressing up he would have too.
We made a plan though. Next time he sees it if I'm not working we will both dress up together and see it again.

Having not read the book, I can't really nit-pick at the movie. I still really liked it though and thought that they did a pretty good job with whatever material they decided to use out of the book. My only complaint was that they seemed to rush the story along a little faster than I would have liked.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars. This is one you could even take kids to.

Stay Tuned...

I'm working the Harry Potter midnight tonight. I'm going to lose my mind a few times, and hopefully by the end I will still have it. If I don't I'll probably blame Doby for stealing it.

Hold on to your wands, this could get ugly...
