Actually, let's let the Ugandans speak for themselves:

If you want to raise awareness for something, it is better that you talk about and raise awareness for Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who was shot by a white man while walking back from a 7-11. He was unarmed. His murderer has not been arrested yet and claims self defense. The kid had SKITTLES. And I point out their skin color because had it been the other way around? Homeboy would have gotten life already or at least arrested.

Which December holidays do you celebrate, and why? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

None, really. I do, however, get into the festive mood of the holidays. I also like to exchange gifts. :)

I bought a Droid a couple months ago, and even though I knew that I wasn't going to have my hand held like Apple users did, I ultimately gained a lot more freedom with how I wanted to use my phone and how it looked. Today, it shut itself off after a failed update and refused to restart. After some reading up, I found out that it had something to do with me rooting my phone (for iPhone users, it's sort of like jailbreaking...Sort of.) Thankfully, someone on one of the forums had a really quick fix and I was good again.

There is a certain responsibility you have to take when it comes to owning electronic devices, and I'm happy I was able to solve it myself. It's a waste of money to take your phone to the store, have the assistants puzzle over it, then finally tell you that you need a replacement or buy a new phone. Whenever something goes wrong with my laptop or any other device I have, I always think back to my tech writing professor. He mentioned that people call up tech assistants hoping for miracles when they should have really familiarized themselves with the product first. When you familiarize yourself with your product, you're able to communicate better with the assistants and in return, they are better able to help you.

Just some random thoughts I was thinking about when trying to get my phone to work again. It's perfectly fine now. :)

What keeps you up at night?

I constantly worry about my future, whether I'm accomplishing enough things or not. My lack of inspiration for writing lately has also been at the back of my mind. I really want to do NanoWriMo, but find that I don't really have the motivation or drive to do it. I failed the previous two years, and I really don't see things being any different this year. I'm not trying to be negative or anything, but that's the realistic outlook of things right now. I do want to carry out the plot that I had last year because I really think I was going somewhere with that story. I'm in love with the idea of having a companion that can transform into an animal and fight with you. So, if I do participate in Nano, I'll probably try and continue with that. But a brand new start, of course. Well, I have a couple of days to decide, and then I guess I'll have to forego the outline this year. I was also thinking about picking a very obscure fairytale (not sure from which region of the world, but most likely from China or Japan) and putting a very modern twist on it. That seems to be popular nowadays, and I think I'd have a lot of fun writing a modern fairytale.

But yeah, I guess what keeps me up at night is worrying about whether I'm a failure or not at life in general. I want to do more things for my family, but I'm stuck in school still for at least another year. And then afterwards, I'll be doing something I don't really like. I feel like I'm stuck in a limbo, and I hate that feeling.

The movie made no sense within the context of the previous films. My confusion with what they were trying to do with the story overrode my sense of fear, so I give the movie a D. It was basically like the first two, in terms of how they get the audience to react, but the appeal wore off for me once I realized it was just the same old thing. I was most irritated by how they changed the story, so now it makes no sense whatsoever. :/ I guess that's what happens when you milk something so dry.

Your result for The Sorting Hat: A Comprehensive Harry Potter Personality Assessment [Test/Quiz]...


51% Ravenclaw, 49% Hufflepuff, 44% Slytherin and 47% Gryffindor!

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,

if you've a ready mind,

Where those of wit and learning,

Will always find their kind;

The cardinal traits of Ravenclaw are intellect, wit and openness to experience. They are the most introverted house of the four. Ravenclaws are more likely to prefer small gatherings of like-minded individuals and require recooperation after stressful social interaction. These individuals are intuitive creatures, the quintessential researchers. They lack the stubborn, strict, and rule-abiding qualities that would inhibit intellectual growth—one can't be too set in their ways if they are to be open to exploring new ideas and paths of thought.In contrast to Slytherin and Gryffindor, Ravenclaws in general are much more emotionally stable. Their reactions seem dampened compared to the sometimes dramatic responses of the other houses—they're much less likely to get offended, they're more open to criticism, not particularly argumentative and interested in hearing different points of view. They can at times seem to be less interested in people and more interested in their own inner world, and appear to be disconnected from the rest of humanity.

Ambition is secondary to them. Although they may strive to excel in school, knowledge and self-enrichment is the primary goal as opposed to simply wanting good marks. If they do happen to strive for excellence, it is because it fits with their other goals, not out of a desire to be superior or the best. Due to their intuitiveness and willingness to listen, Ravenclaws can be empathetic and make good advisors. They should generally leave leadership roles to people who are more extraverted and who would enjoy them more, however.

The gist of my entire day went like this: got a jpop song stuck in my head, have no clue which anime (or if it was from an anime at all), and then spend the rest of the day desperately finding what it is because I know it would bug me for THE REST OF MY LIFE.

It was Houko's Flowin~, but oh my god, the entire day, I was like "Itsumademo...Tsuzuiteku...Aozora...Something, something, something...DAMN IT WHAT IS IT!" But what came out of it was remembering some really good songs like HAL's Starry Night and a lot of great Megumi Hayashibara hits. So good times was had.

Livejournal, stop this. I miss you when you're away!

Also: talented people are talented.
