A lot of my posts are friend-locked.  You don't have to friend me to see my posts, but all the personal stuff is usually friend-locked for safe-keeping.

I accept all friends from h_e with no questions asked!  So if you're from one of the houses, just comment with your house affiliation to be friends.

edit: This is new. If you wish to ask me any questions about myself, you can do so here. It takes anonymous questions, and then I answer them on my spare time. Ask away! :)

Have you ever had one of those days when you know what you should do, that you should call someone and tell them what's going on, but you can't? One of those days when all that goes through your mind is: "I don't want people to know that I'm a failure"? And these days so often come after a string of good days of you pretending not to be a failure... I wish I didn't know this feeling so well. :/

☆ Meme Time ☆

 Hey all!  I just posted the giveaway post, so come and check it out!  It's... the first of way too many, haha.  I am such a pack rat.  All my life people have called me messy... but really, it's just that I have far too much stuff most of the time.  I never throw anything away.

So, I'm still working on the pictures meme answers!  I haven't forgotten about it, despite how it might seem, haha.  In addition to that one - or in connection with it?  -  I've decided to include this meme.

Ask me any question about myself, whether casual or personal. I will answer all of them to the best of my ability, either here or in another post. (note: most likely here?) Anonymous comments are welcome, as are signed-in comments. Feel free to get as silly or serious as you'd like.

Name change. "krysti_ryou" to "elohisa".

For those who have been following me for a long time, you'll remember that I have wanted to do this for a while. I decided to finally go through with it.

Just felt like it was time for a new start. (:
Life has like collapsed in three days. I've been sick with the flu and other problems so much that I think I have to drop Spanish. I just - it's been so long and I've missed like two and a half weeks of classes out of five weeks. It's far too stressful for me. Plus I was having so many problems with it before. If I drop it, I can concentrate on my other classes, which hasn't been happening because of Spanish. So I have to talk to my adviser about it. And then face my nice teacher and tell her what's happened. I've been trying so hard for the class... but I can't make up all the work. She assigns three homework assignments (one essay, half a workbook chapter, and another assignment) due each class period (every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). There's no way I can make up all that work with my other classes. I don't want to do this, but what other choice do I have? What other choice?

My poor sister has also been sick. One of her professors sent her an email saying she can make it all up, but then just sent her an email stating point blank that she's missed over the allowed days and "if you haven't dropped this class yet, then you should". OUCH! Seriously. I had him last semester so I understand that he's LIKE THAT, but still. Ouch. Seriously. It seems he forgot his previous email saying it was all okay. Whatever. Now she has to write a nice email to try and remind him, because she needs that class to remain a full time student.

Plus, like, a billion other things. It's really frustrating. I don't like it when life gets difficult! I'll pull through, of course, but still... I already felt bad about this semester and now it's harder.


So this is just a rather complain-y post because I needed to vent. When I feel better, I have the prettiest pictures from yesterday when it snowed. NYC is so pretty in the winter! Also, a boys post. Because it is needed. :D

On a side note: I miss high school. While there were problems, popular crowds and all that jazz, no matter what I could get through it all with my friends. I miss talking to them... I miss them. They made everything better. I need to reconnect with them! How I took them for granted.

 Does anyone know of a good Harry Potter mood theme to use?  I love the one I have right now, but it's about two years or more old, and a lot of the images repeat themselves.  Any links or points in the right direction would be well appreciated!  I'm going through Harry Potter withdrawal right now... with Hogwarts_Elite closing and all.

I've been told that I should join HiH, but there seems to be a lot of drama that can happen there, and I don't like drama very much.  Besides, h_e has become something of a home for me.  You get to know so many people after so long that I'm not sure anything could really replace it.  I'm excited about Elite of the Fleet (awesome contests!  old and new faces!  sorting!  uniforms!) but although I love Star Trek, it could never really replace Harry Potter as my favorite fandom.  There's something special about sharing your love for something with other people and making a bunch of friends in the process.  I know the subject's been talked to death, so I won't keep going on about it... but it's just so sad.  Especially the way the community's ending - there's no real feeling of closure.  Anyway, I might reread the books whenever I have time to remedy this!  Maybe another comm will start up someday that'll be just as cool.  :D

edit: Also, if people are going to call me randomly from a NYC number I don't know, why can't they leave a message?  I even have my voicemail saying "please leave a message so I can get back to you".  I don't like calling random numbers back if I'm unsure who they are... it just feels weird!  I love hearing from people, especially old friends who have changed numbers or new friends from classes, but it's hard when they don't leave a message to say who they are, haha.
