if there's ONE THING me & ^kv can agree on liking, it's blurting out stuff like this and leaving ^merrick to deal with it! *laugh*
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
um, yesterday was our 1st day of classes. we're taking public speaking and pc hardware & software support. i think they're both gonna be cool. we haven't decided yet what the frontrunning teams for each class are gonna be. prolly me + merrick + kv for public speaking.....and then kv + wyatt + merrick for pc hardware. so yea. we'll decide tomorrow after class meeting #2.

classes are tuesday & thursday 11a-12:20p and 1p-3:15p. we hafta get up just before 9am and leave for the bus stop @ 9:25. then we catch the 3:45p bus from the college to downtown and the 4:15p bus home. so we're gone for like ever just for 2 classes. anyways, we're gonna hafta pack a lunch cuz that's too long not to eat anything real.

yay ^kv!

^kv got us a 100% on the state & local government midterm. there were only 2 of the 100's in the whole class. YAY ^KV!!

so yesterday we were chatting inside and i was like: 'ok, if you had to get a body piercing, where would it be?' nobody got to opt-out except for the kids and the plant. it would be kinda hard to pierce a plant! plus what counts as body??

so here's the list!
- me: bellybutton
- merrick: eyebrow
- wyatt: eyebrow (grudgingly! he didn't wanna play along)
- isah: lower lip
- kv: prince albert (*wince*)

i dunno how i come up with these things. the body has ear cartilage pierced and that's it. we've agreed not to get any more piercings, so this question is just something to ask. like the ice cream.
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
so yesterday was eventful! ^kv & ^merrick went to government class and did this little presentation of proposal 3 to the whole class. it went SUPER well!

another classmate group's proposal was to stop the 'emergency manager' law. for anybody who doesn't know, an 'emergency manager' is somebody appointed (usually by the governor) to take the place of an elected official when a district is failing. anyways, that doesn't REALLY matter here, and i DON'T wanna discuss politics, but the definition matters later, k?

so then ^wyatt & ^merrick go to algebra class and everything's generally ok till the prof tries to get everybody into groups and ^wyatt can't handle it and they dissociate and ^THE PLANT shows up. the prof can't get the plant to respond (duh!!) so she calls security and this campus police officer comes in and escorts whoever's at the front to this little backroom in the library.

we got asked a TON of questions and ^merrick kinda came back to answer them. she finally said something about dissociation and the security guy doesn't know what that means, and ^merrick's attempts to define it make him think psychosis which is BAD cuz if he thought we were psychotic, we woulda gotten paramedics and emergency room and ALL that stuff we REALLY didn't want/need. SOOOO finally ^merrick mentions multiple personality disorder and he GOT that, so yea.

um.....so he makes all these offers of calling people and we SRSLY just wanna leave cuz a reasonable insider was at the front so everything really was ok, but he lets us go eventually. ^merrick talked to the prof and she recommended a 'special services' letter, which we were like: 'yea, i'm working on getting one, but it isn't ready yet.' (we're gonna email the psychologist TODAY and ask her to have the letter ready by our appt next monday....yeesh!) but she's gonna be careful about assigning us into groups now, which will be good but srsly.....

later on we were talking to mom and we thought of something. our 'emergency manager' generally ends up being ^the plant, which is only SLIGHTLY better than ^pretty little beast, so we TOTALLY need to appoint a decent emergency manager. ^merrick thinks it should be ME. we're gonna have an inside meeting to discuss it, but i bet I'M gonna be our emergency manager.

i'm awesome like that.

good things about ^kv going to government class = he's interested, he's confident in speaking, he has opinions, he pays attention and takes good notes

bad things about ^kv going to government class = nobody else can READ his notes

*laugh*

reading...

we've really gotta divide up our reading again. when we read together, it's rare we find a book we ALL like. most of us enjoyed harry potter, but now ^merrick is trying to read eyes of crow, a fantasy romance, and it's SO BORING. i don't like it; ^kv doesn't like it; ^wy doesn't like it. (actually ^merrick might not like it either... *snort*) anyways, we need to read separately again. it's less conveninent in some ways, but it makes reading a whole lot more enjoyable!
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
so i made EVERYBODY do the harry potter sorting hat test and get scored. here's our scores....

JJ: slytherin (56%)
merrick: squib
wyatt: hufflepuff (66%)
kv: slytherin (48%)
isah: gryffindor (48%)

i was SURE ^kv was gonna be in gryffindor, but he just BARELY got slytherin. & i NEVER woulda guessed gryffindor for ^isah! huh. we're quite the bunch.

amusingly only 1 of us would turn in the $20 in Q2. & i bet you can guess which one! *laugh* and NONE of us chose 'true' for Q8.

we got inspired by that meme question so we all decided to invent our own flavors of ice cream. *grin*

me: strawberry caramel
^merrick: mint brownie/cookie dough
^kv: peanut butter mixed nut
^isah: melonberry with real berries

& ^wyatt won't eat anything frozen, so he's sitting out.
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
if i had a superpower, it would be shapeshifting. we'd be able to shift between the forms the insiders take.

i'd turn into a 15y/o girl 4'9" and skinny with ice blue eyes and spiky white-blond hair. i think i'd hafta shift clothes too, so i'd wear shorts and an orange tank top and some of those new athletic toe shoes.

^kv would turn into a 30y/o male 6'1" with dark hair and dark-dark brown eyes, he'd be really masculine and well built and he'd have that powerful, dark and smoldering with sexuality look except people would see that he'd never deign to involve himself with THEM. inbuilt arrogance all the way! i guess he'd wear some kind of uniform that gave him authority.

^wyatt would turn into a man in his 20s, 5'9½" and lean/muscular with longish wavy brown hair and stormy (he likes that description!) bluegreen eyes. [actually if you read his journal, he's got this really long vanity post where he describes himself in detail....!] the clothes he'd shift to would be business formal with a nice tie.

^isah would turn into an androgynous 17y/o, 5'7½" with one amber eye & one turquoise, faux hawk hair that's light blond with chocolate brown patches. clothes would be cargo shorts and a hoodie sweatshirt.

i think ^merrick would look a lot like the body now but with gray eyes and smaller boobs. *grin*

laptop!

dad basically gave us permission to buy a new laptop!! *grin* we're gonna poke around for something good that meets ^kv & ^wyatt's specs.
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
isah: whee i <3 this!
merrick: ugh...not after that muffin
wyatt: *gone*
kv: ....
jeanniNe: ok....hey, this might actually be fun

messed up

buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
^webber is taking ^kv's place as 3rd primary frontrunner. brings back memories, yunno, like of how things were years back. *sigh*

problem with this is now we don't have the same type of 'protector' right up at the front so much....so the 'protector' that shows up when the system thinks it's needed is NOT necessarily the RIGHT one. like ^the plant coming out at office hours or ^plb coming out ANY time.

why is everything getting SO messed up....??

yay ^kv!

.....yay ^kv AND yay system! we went to programming logic class and ^kv showed up. he basically finished the flowchart we've been struggling with for like a month and started on the code. i think the prof was kinda surprised but it's hard to say. anyways.....3 cheers for progress! *grin*

curses!

i'm writing this partly cuz ^merrick wants it recorded but doesn't have anyplace to put it, but i'm gonna put my take on it too so that it's right for MY journal.

i think i've talked about our school arrangements before but i'll sum them up here. last term we took business computer applications & interpersonal communication. we got into the habit of going together, took turns somewhat, but the turn-taking was....softer, like usually all 3 of us were there, which — now — we're realizing was prolly a good thing. anyways, we planned to do roughly the same thing this term, with programming logic & fundamentals of algebra.

so yesterday ^merrick goes into programming logic alone. (we're getting MORE dysfunctional when it comes to switching, you'd think it'd be the other way around! we can't force anybody to the front without major dissociation.) the prof says it's the class where we're working on project 1. ^merrick sits down and opens the un-modified code and the hierarchy chart......and gets nothing.

turn-taking went so well that programming logic knowledge — the practical stuff, not from reading the chapters or listening to lectures — is confined to the insider who was closest to the front when the students were taught flowcharting and how to decipher/modify code. so ^merrick sits there in class and tries to call ^kv to the front, but of course trying to get him there means dissociation.

these days any effort to go against 'natural' switching just results in zoning out/depersonalization/derealization type stuff.....and natural switching is totally dysfunctional. broken. it doesn't bring the RIGHT insider for the job to the front anymore. it's like we're losing control of system workings.

this brings to mind having the wrong insider at the front for the last math test too. that better not happen again tomorrow!

we thought turn-taking in classes was gonna be good for us, but it backfired. now what?? (advice is welcome, if you've got some.)

the cellar

buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
a couple nights ago, ^merrick came into our house and bypassed the front room to land in a cellar that most of us didn't know exists. me & ^kv had to go rescue her. fortunately it wasn't the sub-basement where every time you go down there, a little voice whispers 'it's creepy down here'. the voice makes me shiver EVERY time. course maybe it was worse cuz nobody knew it was there till a couple nights ago.

anyways, we've been reading garth nix's old kingdom trilogy, which is having some unusual results. there's a scene in sabriel where mogget is released into his free magic form, and that image was appropriated by ^isah, who's now declaring herself a powerful creature of free magic. yea. and inside she CAN be that.

so......free magic ^isah trapped ^merrick in the mysteriously appearing cellar. we ALL thought ^isah had changed, i mean she SAID she was redefining herself cuz our situation changed since last time she was needed, but i guess change is hard?

ugh

turns out the appt with the surgeon is just gonna be a CONSULTATION. wth?! we're pissed. that's like FOREVER to wait for some guy to 'look it over' and 'discuss the options'! srsly there ARE NO options. it's just ONE little procedure. grah!

in other news, we're considering starting a group journal on DW. i dunno if we will but it'd be kinda nice to have a central space PLUS our separate journals. ^merrick's mainly the one for it cuz she has a journal on LJ and doesn't wanna keep a new journal on DW alone (she's actually GOT one at [personal profile] with , just doesn't wanna use it).

anyways, life's not bad. i should be letting ^kv do programming logic homework now, but we'll make time for that tomorrow. ha.
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
me & ^kv finally agreed on what our store is gonna sell. it'll be a grocery store. we couldn't agree on anything else. the other option we actually considered was an 'adult store', but (1) ^kv doesn't consider me an adult, (2) it would be awkward to collect the information, (3) blowfish already has it DOWN, and (4) sharing progress with other people would be....difficult.

so, yea, groceries. we're gonna start with the produce corner, all the fruits & vegetables EVER. then when we've got that going, i think meat comes next. this is gonna be SO MUCH FUN.

tl;dr?

so we think we're gonna get good grades this semester we just finished. our online grades for business computer apps are looking like 98% right now & we got great scores on the major parts of interpersonal communication, so we SHOULD get a good grade there, too.

next semester we're taking 'fundamentals of algebra' and 'programming logic' which means that i'm not gonna get a whole lotta class time. ^kv is the math guy. me & ^merrick are both ok with math and i KNOW we'd pick it up quick, but ^kv deserves some time just for him. he never gets that. a class or two should satisfy him and we all know that will make EVERYBODY happy. sheesh.

but classes don't start till january 9th, so we've got WAY too much time off.

we're watching 'avatar: the last airbender' now, which is cool, and i REALLY wanna write fanfic for it, but ^merrick doesn't want me getting into that. he has plans for another story, original fic, but i keep telling him that's how he works BEST - yunno, he gets things done when he has to cram them into the spaces between somebody else doing something. so.....it's fanfic for me!

other things we've gotta do are just boring like fixing the website of body-mom's psychology workplace. it's gonna be tricky to fix it or redesign it so it LOOKS like we fixed it. you wouldn't believe all the extra tags all over the place, like blank paragraphs that SHOULD be <br /> are formatted with <span> & 2 or 3 <p> tags plus extraneous CSS. it looks sorta ok on the web, but the code is garbage.

me & ^merrick are kinda excited about xmas. i've gotten in some shopping in stores and online and there's one more thing i've gotta buy at the local store. i know a lot of the presents we're gonna get, and that's ok with ^merrick who likes getting what he wants, but i like being surprised. ehh, oh well.

umm, like i said, cooking for grandma and parents tonight, so i'm gonna do a little planning for the fanfic before i've gotta go and start cooking. *waves to everyone*

2 things!

there's been a couple changes inside. the insider formerly called 'helen' is now going to be known as 'merrick'. he's identifying as FTM now, and the two guys want the body to be seen as masculine. (anybody who's seen a picture of us knows that's never gonna happen.... *sighs*) also there's possibly another insider, but we're not totally sure yet.

today ^kv's (& now ^merrick's too) new thing came in the mail. i THINK we got away with getting a package and not being asked about what's in it. i HOPE so. it'd be really hard to say that it's a....thing.
