Today is the beginning of the Chinese New Year and this sogn is going through my head.

This was a long year.

A long year )

So the new year, supposedly this should be a relatively good luck year for me. I could use a bit more good luck as I look toward my future. I feel the urge to look more at the metaphysical part of my nature. I'm coming to the startling and painful conclusion that there is much there I need to stop ignoring and start actively working on. My health both physical and metaphysical is not where I want it to be and they effect each other in annoying ways. *sigh* So here is to the new year *raises a glass*. May she bring us all the best fortune, May I learn to find solace, and May this confusion give way to clarity.

Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.

I am amazingly tired. But there shall be no rest for the wicked. Tomorrow is the Lantern Festival (okay a day or two early but the weekend is a no go). So tonight I have been cooking up a storm and today I went shopping at the local Asianish market. Tomorrow's menu is something like this:

Steamed pork buns
Turnip cake
Mochi and Green Tea ice cream
fried dumplings
And some random candy and snacks
Bubble Tea

Part of that I made from scratch. I meant to make up more lanterns but ran out of time. Bugger LOL. Maybe I'll make some with the kids when I get home tomorrow or maybe I can convince Kt to help me out by projecting the kids. Either way it should be fun. I have a few friends dropping by though there are almost no definite times for anyone *chuckles*.

I have two tests tomorrow. One first thing in the morning and one at like 2 pm. Ugh I still need to study. Juggling cooking, hair care, and studying today has not been fun. I'll be happy when the weekend comes and I can crash. I'm still a bit jet lagged.

K 'nough out of me. I've got some buns to finish and some accounting to review.

Ugh I am tired. I had school all day (though I missed my morning class) then I headed up to Albany to shop from Chinese New Year and say good bye to Scott. He is off to Germany for a few weeks on more army training goodness. I'm so jealous that he is going to Germany though. I know it is for army stuff but he still will get to spend lots of time off base. We met up with Jay and Heather and had a grand time. I do miss seeing my Scottling everyday.

I am going to desperately try and get up at 9 in the morning tomorrow so I can get bills paid and help take care of the mutt. I've been horrible about mutt duties since school started. I'm still trying t figure out my schedule and work her into it properly. As is three days a week I'm just plain gone all day at school. Tomorrow is one of those days but I don't have to leave until 11 so I'll at least be able to get her up in the morning as long as I manage to drag myself out of bed.

School is going fairly well so far. I have homework due and a ton of reading for my intro to novel course. I need to download the books. I've got the first one, Don Quixote, saved on my computer. I'm trying to avoid buying most of my texts this semester since I never use the bloody things anyhow.

Alright bed for me. I'm tire as hell and I've alot of work to do tomorrow.

Responsible Seo strikes again.... well sorta.

I got my last class situated today. It took me running all over campus. Unfortunately this was during one of my classes BLEGH which is why i have time to post.

But I'm way liking my teachers more this semester. They are much easier to understand and I feel far more confident that I'll do okay. I really need to do okay this semester also.

Later today I'm going out with Jenn to hang out. I ran across Wyatt in the computer lab and chatted. Hung out with Sean during lunch and met some new people. They decided I was the coolest person ever. I forget the name of the chick who said that. It was fun. When I'm in a good mood I make people laugh. When I'm in a bad mood no one does but not always because I say mean things. Somehow I infect everyone with my mood bahahaha! Which means of course it should be everyone's ultimate goal to make me happy because then i will make them happy and this is of course what everyone should want.

I spent my Microeconomics class trying not to fall asleep. I finally figured out if I write bad BDSM poetry I can stay awake. I might actually edit it into something unhorrible later. I like the meter on the second one quite a bit. I have Rise of the Novel next. The read was amazingly horrible and I can't wait until next week when we start actually reading some novels. Right now we are reading critical debates or some nonsense that mostly have nothing to do with novels. Seriously one was a piece by Sigmund Freud on dreams! WTF mate. I spent my morning in Accounting class planning the cake for tomorrow, brainstorming Celia's party baked goods, and making a list of food for Chinese New Year. Speaking of which I need to discuss guest lists with my family. The first day of the New Year is for family and only those very very close to the family so I get damned picky about who I invite.

Eeeeekkk class!

So yesterday was spectacular. I woke up this morning and got an email from my teacher that I'm flunking the class. *sigh* Guess I need to go do more school work.

Rooster is often seen as the original strong silent type, not unlike the Humphrey Bogart and Greto Garbo prototypes. Most people consider them quite eccentric. Sad to say, relationships with other people are often strained. They are quite moody and can be too outspoken. They are often self-centered, but can be quite brave when the situation calls for it. On the other hand, Rooster People are quite talented and capable. They are always devoted to their work and have a reputation for being the hardest of workers. Rooster People are deep thinkers and are pioneers in spirit. They can experience the greatest of joy in complete solitude. Even though often alone, they rarely experience loneliness. Instead, they enjoy their own company and feel solitude helps them in their quest after knowledge.

Shark-tail Soup and fortune cookies are among the keys to good health.

Sometimes this one walks around with its head in the cumulus clouds, higher than the stars. You see, this rooster struts around with peacock feathers and they never ever ruffle. So much arrogance can make it hard to get along with others, especially when the Rooster is also intolerant of those who are less talented and a bit slower than normal. On the other hand, the Metal Rooster is extraordinarily talented. Of all twelve Zodiac signs, this one is probably the most high-minded of them all, with a very clean line of thought. The Metal Roosters can distinguish right from wrong very clearly and it doesn't matter which direction they pursue, they always wind up going the right way. If they confront a maze, or big problem, they will immediately see a solution because of their analytical, logical way of thinking. Through their perseverance, any hurricane becomes an orderly thing of beauty, just like that! When it's time for romance, the male Metal Rooster has no trouble at all, love just abounds; the female has a tendency to keep to herself, making connections less freely, but lastingly when they happen.

Famous Rooster people: Suharto, Deborah Kerr, Peter Ustinov, D. H. Lawrence, John Glenn, Emperor Akihito, Yoko Ono, Eudora Welty, Bette Midler

So I'm still at work (big surprise) and working on the New Year celebration. I'm actually having a very good time of it. Like really good. New Years is right around the corner and it is goona be a good day and I think the pre-New Years jitters are finally letting up. I mean it is silly to be nervous but it is a big holiday and I want our first to be as perfect as possible. Then again I know it won't be perfect and I'm okay with that since holidays aren't about perfection for me. They are about good times and family. I can't wait to celebrate the New Year with my hodgepodge family. It makes me quite happy.

So menu is almost done. *ponders the list* Need to cut it down a bit. I mean this is a food heavy holiday but irr well I'm a bit overboard here. Some of it can be made ahead of time. I made many fortune cookies yesterday (yes I make them at home fresh). Just about all that must be purchased from the store has been. Shal and Jase are bringing me the last few items and decorations. I'm gonna see if Kt would like to have the spawn makng New Years decorations for the house. It is traditional to repaint the doors and window frames red but instead I want to work on getting some red and gold decorations up instead. It will also give the kids something to do with all their free time instead of movies. Too many movies riles them up something firce. We still need to clean the house up. It should be throughly cleaned before hand. The oil heater going wonky is actually timed nicely with this as they had to throughly clean it. I need to finish my school work at work so I can take care of holiday stuff while home. Oh and I need to have the kids make up New Years wishes to be burned. Not exactly traditional but something my family has always done. I also want to make up some new icons for my LJ. Both for the New Year and the Sims. LOL I'm so addicted to the sims.

So things are going well and I'm so looking forward to Sunday. It should be a good day.

Soooooo I found a nice little italian bakery that is directly on my way to work. YUMMMMMM! LOL I'm so bad. But this means I can now start supporting my espresso habit again. Which is bad but also means I might be able to function in the mornings. I cannot explain to you why one hour makes so much of a difference in my sleeping habits but if I have to get up before 9 I don't function as well. That and I've been super tired lately. 

I think I need to workout more (like any would be good). I found out they are opening a branch of my gym up in Middletown this spring. Which will be great for going to school but suck when I switch schools. Speaking of school I still have alot of work left to do.  I was so tired last night I spent no real time on school work before I passed right out. *sighs* I haven't had much time to spend with family lately. It has been the suck. K called me the Phantom Seo this morning. Too true actually. I get up in the morning. Go straight to work, come home, eat dinner, start my school work and crash. Welcome to my life. Christ I'm tired. 

And I swear to god if my manager doesn't stop calling people 'son' I'm going to murder him.

I'm too low on cash to hit chinatown this weekend. Oh and I got a fucking speeding ticket last night on my way to the Chinese Market that Nello told me about. *sighs* On one hand yay I found some of what I needed. On the other fuck I got a fucking ticket.

I'm so tired.

I have so much left to do for New Year. I think I might just die.
So the two weeks after my birthday showed me to be in a crap mood mainly. Not sure why but one thing after another set me off into one of my funks. So I was really behind school wise. I have finally gotten off my duff and here is where things stand:

Astronomy: Up to date with HW waiting to be done.
Contempory Novel: Back Journal Assignments done. This weeks work still needs to be done.
Intro to Business: All Caught up. Need to finish this week.
Macroeconomics: All caught up. Chp 4 to be read this week
Prehistoric Life: 1st Journal Needs to be done. 2nd Journal due today. Background reading still to be done.

So anyhow I have a lot left to do but it doesn't seem so daunting now. I should have Prehistory done today along with Cont Novel.

Chinese New Year is soon. I need to finish getting the rest of my supplies. Shal if you see this could you give me a call at the house. You should have the number. My cell is kinda working but only barely. I need to know if you and Jase are coming by for New Year.

I reaaaaally need to find an chinese market in my general vacinity. I'm having a serious problem with the getting of supplies for new year. *SIGH*

Anyhow I'm over an hour late leaving working. The networking guy was in and needed me to stick around so he could get some work done. *sighs* I wannnnnna go hooooommmme.

On the plus side my raise came through. I'm now salaried. Weird never been that before. But it means I'll know exactly how much money I'm making. Yay! Happy! Now I can start budgeting easier. ^_^

Well I'm home now. I've started and stoped this entry three times. Time to post. It is good to be home, even if I do have a mountain of school work to do.
