Latest Site Update

I updated this!




Be the Change you Wish to see in the World.

Pet Peeve 1: People who can't drive...they only have two pedals and I have three, I just don't understand the confusion.

Pet Peeve 2: Stupid people; not people who just haven't learned or are challenged. I'm talking about the people who make you go insane to the point you want to add chlorine to the gene pool.

Pet Peeve 3: Poorly designed webpages. For example, the site with a nice image, but no navigation or menu bar. Those drive me insane--what's the point? But most importantly, those pages that I can't read. I'm not totally happy with my own design, so I've done extensive looking around on the net, and have ran into WAYYY too many sites that were unreadable. By unreadable, I mean they have:

1. extreme color overload,
2. frames so small you have to scroll forever
3. a background that is so busy or too close to the text color that you can't see the text
4. spazzin' out to the point you're going to make someone have a seizure or motion sickness
5. font that is either too small, to big, overlapping or a CoMbInAtIoN that makes it frustrating at best to try to read.

Noteable Quotes

--...Qu'est-ce que signifie 'apprivoiser'?...Creer des liens?"

--Bien sur, dit le renard. Tu n'es encore pour moi qu'un petit garcon tout semblable a cent mille petits garcons. Et je n'ai pas besion de toi. Et tu n'as pas besion de moi non plus. Je ne suis pour toi qu'un renard semblable a cent mille renards. Mais, si tu m'apprivoises, nous aurons besion l'un de l'autre. Tu seras pour moi unique au monde. Je serai pour toi unique au monde...

~~Antoine de Saint-Exupery, conversation between le petit prince and le renard in Le Petit Prince


--Il est tres simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

~Antoine de Saint-Exupery, dit par le renard

Kenshin: It's no use. I can't find it. The answer--how to atone for the crimes I committed as a hitokiri. I can't find it!

(Oibore looks at him for a long moment.)

Oibore: Is that so. Even with your weak, confused heart, you won't let go of what you're holding so tight in your hand . . .

(Kenshin looks down at the sword.)

Oibore: You lose what's most precious to you . . . exhaust yourself body and soul. But if you have something you can't bring yourself to throw away, whatever anyone says, that's your only truth.

Kenshin Thinking: There's one thing I can do. Protect the happinesses of the people I see before me. If one sword can still catch people's eyes, than it's enough to protect. People are suffering all around me. Whatever the reason, I can't let them be.

(Oibore picks up the little bottle and puts the stopper back in.)

Oibore: I guess we've thought enough about the past. Now . . . and from now on . . . the people who never stopped believing in you are waiting for your return!

(Kenshin seizes the hilt of the sword and pulls it free of the sheath, breaking the chains that held it.)

~from Rurouni Kenshin

"I wish the ring had never come to me...I wish none of this had happened."

"So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

~From Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings

"For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach."

~J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings; When Sam looks up into the sky to see a star shining through the darkness of Mordor

"Kamui, do you have something wroth protecting? Someone you want to be happy, even if you become unhappy?"

"Kotori...and Fuma."

"I see. Then it will be all right. You won't choose the wrong path."


"There's just no way the future can already be decided!"

"That's true...Maybe you'll be able to change the future."


"Become stronger, Kamui...So that you can protect Kotori and Fuma. So you can protect your loved ones."

~X, conversation between Kamui and his mother

"...even if I know the future, I can't do anything. Even the person who was dear to me...and you. I couldn't save either of you."

"But...you saved Shirou-kun. That's all I need. I also knew...in my dreams that my brother and Shirou-kun would be killing each other. But I couldn't do anything either."

"What awaits Kamui is a sadness harder than death itself. The pain of losing you. Then fighting against and hurting the person he looked up to like an older brother."

"I believe in him. I believe that Shirou-kun will not lose, no matter how hurt he gets. Besides, Shirou-kun is the only one that can save my big brother."


"...tell them I love them both and...that the future still hasn't been determined."

~X, conversation between Kakyou and Kotori

"Kamui...it's alright to stay here forever if that's what makes you happiest. But as long as you don't get out of here, nothing will start and nothing will end. Just like me...in truly important times, all you can do is watch. You can't do anything."

~X, Subaru while talking to Kamui's heart

"...I was able to return to reality from the pain in my heart to turn the future I dream into reality. You should choose too...to keep balming yourself in your memories or to return to reality with a wish."

"If I wish it anything can come true?"

"I'm not sure about that. But nothing can be done if you don't wish for it. From here you need to return to the real world and do it yourself."

~X, conversation between Subaru and Kamui's heart

What the...

I broke...my bra...how the fuck do you break a bra?!  I dunno, but I did it.  I was at the gym...I wasn't even using my arm muscles!!  That stupid underwire thingy...and I didn't know what it was until I got home cuz I wasn't about to inspect it there.  *shakes head*  This whole day has be "what the hell?"  I just...it's a BRA...I give up.  My brain is broken because I can't logically figure out how this one happened.  And I think I'm scared to ask so...hehe.  I need sleep.  Yes, sleep is good.  Good thing I did laundry.  :P
