... the first post of the new year, and yet I say very little. ;) I am oh so mysterious.

Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...

Fun Loving Soul

You are an open and social person. When you are left alone you tend to get bored and restless, and too much time without social contact makes you fade away. A good night surrounded by friends and laughter soon perks you back up.

You are trusting and truthful, and you aren't good at hiding your emotions from friends or strangers alike. People need to take you as you are - and often they do. You are confident but not overconfident, sensitive but not touchy. You aren't afraid to give your opinion, or to let someone know when they have offended you, but you don't constantly fly off the handle. You simply want to make your thoughts and feelings known, and you are just as open to hearing others' points of view. Sometimes your friends feel slighted by you, because they aren't as open about their feelings as you are, and so you don't always notice when they are feeling hurt or down.

Your daemon's form would represent your social and emotionally honest nature, as well as your balanced sense of self. He or she would constantly be throwing him or herself into the moment - enjoying the feel of the afternoon wind, the throbbing beat of music in the club, or helping you argue your point.

Suggested forms: Meerkat, Labrador Retriever, Sea Lion, Lemur

You Are a Jaguar
You have a knack for reforming, balancing, and even healing people.
You see the good in everyone, and you help bad people learn to be better.

Even though you connect to people, you can't help but feel separate from everyone else.
You often feel like you are on the outside looking in, even with your closest family members and friends.

(Subject line = exerpt from the chapter on the Thirty Year's War in one of my Habsburg history class textbooks ("The Habsburg Monarchy: 1618-1815" bgy CHarles Ingrao, if you want to know.)

That quote details the confrontation between some protestant dudes and the catholic representatives in Prague in 1618:

"Following a heated exchange they hurled both men, plus their secretary, out of a window. As the three men fell sixty feet into the dry moat below, one of the conspirators taunted them by exclaiming "See if your Virgin Mary will help you now!" The survival of all three men, two with only superficial injuries, prompted a flurry of pamphlets claiming that eyewitnesses had seen angels swooping out of the heavens to break their fall to earth. Whether by divine intervention or sheer luck the three had, in fact, survived the celebrated Defenestration of Prague by falling onto a pile of manure that had been dumped directly under a window." (pg. 30)

:3 Heehee - defenestration. <3

So yay I've finished exams! :DD Now I can focus on wasting my time  watching anime/Korean dramas, writing fanfiction, and cleaning my room! :D I think that I did fairly well on all of them... I'm just happy that I finally got through that one take home exam (two essays to be written over the course of four days, on the nature of history). But it's all over and done with! :D

Oh, and it snowed for four days straight, as everyone seems to know... but it stopped today! :D yay! ... and then I look out the window, and yep, you've guessed it, it's started up again. D: Isn't it crazy that I'm technically on summer vacation, and yet it looks more like Christmas break outside?

And I'm definitely going to France this summer! :D And the Japan Expo, in Paris! ... which means that I've got to get working on my costume for the anime festival...

believed Hu mad." 
-Jonathan Spence, The Question of Hu 

So currently, three essays are consuming my soul: an book review on The Question of Hu, which is actually a really interesting account of this Jesuit missionary who brings a chinese man, Hu, back to France in the 1720s, but they have a falling out and Hu is locked up in an insane asylum to get him out of the way. 
Anyway, I also have to write two more research essays. The one due on Friday, for English, is getting there. Almost done, almost done... The other one, due a week from tomorrow for my China and th West class, I've barely even started. I have a topic, and I've taken out three books from the library. D: Must... work... harder...
I'm also going to the Soba-bowl anime festival in Edmonton on Saturday, when I really should be working on my essays. Oh, well. I wouldn't be able to concentrate anyway, knowing that it was happening but still being cooped up inside. 
I also feel guilty, because I haven't updated any of my fics recently. D: Here is an excert from the next chapter of Rise of the Jinchuuriki to take the edge off:

Silly Hokage, Education is for Kids! ... not 1,000 year old demons or time travellers! )

Naruto on Ramen, Rise of the Jinchuuriki

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

Preview for the next chapter of Rise of the Jinchuuriki (see, see, I AM working on stuff!):

Little known fact: the famous techniques of the other two sand siblings, Temari and Kankuro, were initially developed so that they could get around Gaara’s sand attacks. This had been done mostly out of self-defense. With her fan, Temari could delay the approach of, say, a wall of sand just long enough so that she could escape. Kankuro, too, had become exceedingly good at replacing himself with his beloved puppets just in case his little brother had had enough and decided to crush him with sand; he needed an escape route.
