Angela Wynn's Journal

18th May, 2007. 5:08 pm.

Well, it's Friday afternoon and it appears that no one else is gonna do it, so I'm going to (gasp!) post something.

I ran across this today.

If you liked that, the guy who wrote the music has a website http://www.jonathancoulton.com/store/downloads I recommend "Re: Your Brains" although, honestly I've only listened to a few. You can listen to the full songs there, and download the MP3s (without any DRM) for a buck.

I'll spare you a second embeded video on one page...Collapse )

27th April, 2004. 6:05 pm. The Project Cycle

*Sigh* Ah, a new project...

I've figured out that I tend to go through a cycle when it comes to projects.

It starts out with the challenge. This is also, for me, known as the Pit of DespairTM. This is when a problem is presented. Usually at this point the problem looks totally insurmountable. This is why I tend to get so little done. Problems always look mind-bogglingly difficult on this first pass. Most die on the drawing board.

Next comes the flush of Excitement. This is the stage I'm in right now with my CS239 project. Usually I start talking about the project and getting ideas on how to solve it, and it starts looking possible. Once it looks possible, I get excited to solve something new. I love finding the solutions. I enjoy the challenges. Of course, all this depends on me leaving the Pit of DespairTM in the first place.

The next stage, for me, is the beginnings of real action. This is where I lay down the first code, write the first words, whatever. At this point, I'm usually still excited, and it's good. Of course, that starts to wear off after a little while. The challenges start looking very difficult again. I am faced with unexpected aspects. This is the second place where projects tend to die still-born. It's not as bad as the Pit of DespairTM, but it can still be rough. The biggest key for me here is to keep going. If I can get to the point where I can see how it's all going to come together, I'll be ok. If not...

Assuming I make it to the next stage, the next stage is Procrastination. I can now see how it's all going to work, so it's time to put it off until the last possible moment. I've gotten a bit better about this in recent years, but I'm still bad. For some reason, getting things done ahead of time seems almost sacrilegious to me. Too bad because it tends to get me into trouble.

Finally, I reach the Mad Rush. Here, of course, since I've Procrastinated, I get totally stressed out, and bitchy rush about. Staying up all night like I normally do and working my ass off. The good news here though, is that if I've managed to get this far, I usually will make it through to the end. Too much effort to throw away at this point.

The last stage is the Aftermath. This is after I've turned everything in. I always find a dozen things I'd have liked to do differently, or little things that are wrong with what I did. I've gotten better at not fretting too much about things at this point, but I always still do a bit. This is also the point at which I promise myself I will never Procrastinate again.

... and then it all starts again...

3rd April, 2004. 2:20 am. boy oh boy!

Thank you jillthepill for this one. Very cute.

Today was really tiring.
I got out of bed really late because my alarm clock has broken and I cannot afford a new one at the moment.

I feel unusual because my antidepressants are making me hairy.

I'm so sad. My kitten got run over this afternoon. I found him when I was coming home from school. His head was all squished. I took some photos. I'll miss him. Poor kitty.

Last night I had to masturbate twenty times. I'm so horny. Click here to see my website.

I want to tell the world to get fucked.

I am updating this journal for the first time in ages, because I've been in prison.

Today, I got a digital camera! Yes! Here's ten thousand photographs of my cat.

I want to say thanks to the world for absolutely fucking nothing! You all suck. I feel so alone, no one ever reads this journal, or even comments to let me know that I'm not suffering alone. It's cold here, and I want to die, but I cannot figure out how many of you to take with me when I go.

I went to the doctor yesterday, and he said I have bipolar disorder, just like my dad.

You should all do this quiz! It's amazingly accurate. You just put in your name and birthday, and it will tell you who you're sexually compatible with.

That's enough for now. But I'll leave you with this poem I wrote. It's about my friend Robert, who has bipolar disorder. Just like me. And Heidi.

Created with the Gregors's Semi-Automatic LiveJournal Updater™. Update your journal today!

And of course, if you read the entry you'll notice the bipolar tendencies throughout. :)

Note to self: stop playing puzzle pirates, or at least stop typing piratey things. 'Ye' is not a word to be used in normal everyday speech. I had to specifically stop myself from using it twice in the preceding paragraph... consisting of only one sentence!

8th November, 2003. 5:50 am. My father

I found out today around 6:30pm that my father died sometime Thursday. I am sure I'll have a lot to say about this eventually, but right now, I just wanted to let everyone know why I am acting weird and flaky. Plus, I want Jason to know that it's all right for him to tell people. I will be ok. Maybe not today, but I will be.

Current mood: sad.

This is what Puzzle Pirates did to my character for halloween. Pretty gruesome... You should see her grin! I just wanted to show it off since I won't get to see it again for at least another year... maybe ever.

Current mood: amused.

28th September, 2003. 6:40 pm. Putting her through her paces

Well, I decided that if I am going to school it would be a good idea to invest in a good printer. So, yesterday I went out and bought a brand new HP 1012 LaserJet printer. I wanted a laser because they're faster, require less maintenance, and print higher quality black and white text. Since most of what I plan on printing is black and white text, this seemed to be a good thing for me. Plus the color printer was never very reliable. This cost me $200 of my school loans.

I am currently printing a book by Mr. James (Jim) Carter. After I did a bit of adjusting it's 267 pages. My printer, after about 10 minutes is on page 188 (and I'm loading paper into it for the second time). It will likely be done with it's job before I finish this post. Needless to say I'm pleased with it.

Plus, the paper comes out all warm... just like fresh laundry!

Also, if anyone wants to know, my first 2 days of school went very well. I'm looking forward to meeting the rest of my classes for the first time in the next 2 days.

P.S. If this book isn't good, I'm going to throw it at Jim. Believe me, it will hurt.

P.P.S The printer's done now...

Current mood: pleased.

My LiveJournal Sitcom
Bringing Up witchy1 (HBO, 9:00): witchy1 (Sharon Stone) hits a hand cream with bront (Nick Nolte)'s mouthwash. Meanwhile, jillthepill (Angelina Jolie) thinks goosezilla (Harrison Ford) has a Brooklyn accent. Then, estall (Mickey Rourke) and 26376 (Chris Farley) raise guinea pigs. The week after, witchy1 (Sharon Stone) can't find popekosh (Laura Bertram)'s ice cream cone and pretends it was never missing. Zany antics follow.
