Umm it may be to late to explain but:

I had recently purchased headphones that I had shipped to the dorm. Unfortunately, FedEx doesn't go through the university system which would allow them to deliver it to my mailbox, so I would either A. have to be there to sign for it or B. have someone at the front desk or hell any random person sign it.

I looked at the tracking earlier and it said "Delivered" and I hadn't gotten said package. At this point I freaking panicked, thinking the package was in someone's room or just plain gone, so I sprinted downstairs to see if they were still there. Thankfully they were still in the office, but they were locked inside just behind a window, so I could literally see them but not use my new headphones. I had to wait a couple hours to finally get to use them after waiting FOREVER. I originally broke a pair of headphones, and Skullcandy gives 50% if you send in the broken pair, so I waited weeks and weeks for that to go through, then another week was spent watching the FedEx tracking thingy.

But now I get to use them, and they're awesome.

Edit: Seriously every time I start using them a big stupid goofy grin pops onto my face cause they're so much better than my last ones.

i fucked up.

in one of the biggest ways possible.

fuck you, subconscious. why do I ignore you so often?
why do you know what's best for me?
why can't I be a coherent whole?

and why do i hide what i'm truly feeling, even from myself?

how in the hell can I confuse something powerful with something so superficial?

i wish the meanings hadn't blurred.

I feel it needs to be said. I'm sorry.

Truth be told, I wasn't expecting anything when I said what I said. I meant every word, but I wouldn't have blamed you if you didn't care or hated me for what I'd said.

I have to wonder what the hell you see in me.

When I was in Japan, I bought a Lionheart keychain from the Square-Enix store at the Tokyo Game Show:

A while ago it fell off my keyring and I notice one of the links widened a bit. So I let it sit in my backpack until today I finally fixed it with some solder. However, I noticed the top-right three mane "dreadlocks" had broken tips. It doesn't look that bad but I wish they were in better condition.

I've got some running to do.

I was going to photoshop a green chilli on to a clock, and attempt to show what time I ate at. Then I realised I am really not in the mood for any in-depth work, so I shall just tell you when I eventually nommed; 1845.

Your idea should be truth, it should never be too early for chilli. Then again, I am trying to keep to a stricter meal timetable nowadays. The operative word here being "trying".
