Unless I've been up for 30+ hours I never sleep for 8 or more. 5-6 is more what I usually run on when insomnia isn't poking around, and that's without setting an alarm or having anywhere to be.

Wow, I feel kinda weird in regards to sleeping - I find functioning difficult with less than eight hours of sleep, and will otherwise sleep ten to fourteen hours.

What a lovely day for central New Zealand.
We had a 6.6 magnitude earthquake this afternoon, although damage where I live was minimal, and no-one was hurt. I was at school at the time, and a number of my classmates seemed to enjoy shouting 'wheeee!' as we all crouched under our desks, with the floor literally moving from side to side underneath us. Our art teacher told them to be quiet, of course. Apparently, you are not allowed to enjoy earthquakes. I certainly did not, I find that there is something hideously unnatural about earthquakes, they just feel completely wrong.

The traffic afterwards was terrible, my bus took nearly twice the time it usually takes to reach my stop. For the moment, the aftershocks continue, but they are not strong enough to warrant scrambling over to my desk. The worst result of the aftershocks in my house is wineglass that fell off the bench onto the floor and smashed. :hahaha:

But, all in all, I think that the fact I can post this shows that everything is fine. You're really in trouble when the Internet gives in.

I heard about this earlier and the first thing I thought of was you. I'm glad all it amounted to was just a slight inconvenience for you. :D

Yes, it was only a minor inconvenience for me, although I became slightly worried when I could not contact my mother the first few times that I called. She was fine, but the patients waiting for their appointments at the time of the earthquake jumped up and ran straight out of the building as soon as the shaking stopped, she told me. As some of you here may know, after the severe earthquakes in Christchurch, and then the earthquakes in the central New Zealand area less than a month ago, many people have become very afraid of any kind of disturbances to do with the ground. Even today, the supermarket closest to me was full of people panicking and trying to purchase as much food and bottled water that they could get their share of. Personally, I feel that it was not all that severe where I live, and that panicking isn't helpful.


If there are any other New Zealanders on the forums who live in the greater Wellington or Kapiti regions, and especially close to Seddon, I wish you luck. I think that staying calm will be very useful in getting through this unscathed.

Thank you for thinking of me, CoL.

It's great that the earthquake was only a minor inconvenience to you and your family, Rei.

I've witnessed an earthquake in Ibaraki a couple of years ago and it amazed me how stoic and disciplined the Japanese were in face of disaster. In the West Coast, or in Chile, where I was also unfortunate enough to live through a couple of quakes, people absolutely freak out whenever the ground starts to shake.

I've been reading the news and so far there were no fatalities.

I am SO embarrassed. A former co-worker came to my house to drop of some documents today. And of course, maybe ten minutes before she arrives my mother and my brother start going at it like wild animals. (They are actually going at it right now as I type) The lady knocks on the door and they are screaming at the top of lungs. I had to walk to side walk to get away from the mess. So fucking embarrassed. Plus I'm too old for this.:headdesk:

Unfortunately, Opera 12 isn't supported by YTO anymore. I don't see why they couldn't leave the old layout as an option....

Opera have shot themselves in both feet, in the balls, and in the head with their botched introduction of the alpha version of a new misconceived browser as if it was an upgrade. Lots of sites now complain that the working version of their (still supported) actual working browser is outdated.

I am SO glad that no one was hurt. Nothing like an earthquake to add to your day, right guys? :P

A lot of little things that shouldn't be bothering me at all are irritating me to the point where I feel like I have to punch something. It could be something even as mild as a plan with a friend not working out, or something happening somewhere that doesn't even affect me or people that I care about. I'm not sure why I'm so easily irritable these days.

It's been an interesting couple of days. A few weeks ago I called USF to see what dorm I would be in, I was told that I was near the bottom of a rather large waiting list. That's fine, I'll just make other arrangements. Thus, I started my lease with Avalon, the apartment I've been talking about, recently.

Fast forward to three days ago. I got a letter from the housing department of the University saying that I now have a dorm and have been assigned. Well, we have a problem. I've already paid for and am preparing to move into an apartment. I called the housing department to cancel the dorm room. I was told that I have to pay a five hundred dollar cancellation fee.

I told the attendant I was talking to to (very politely, and certainly not in so many words) go fuck herself. I asked to speak to her supervisor and left a message saying that I believe the charge is in error and/or unjust. I will not pay another 0,5 grand to those carpetbaggers without a fight.

The best part is that she said the fee was "in my contract", I never signed a contract. She may be able to pull the whole "terms and conditions" thing on me, but I don't think that's going to fly.

I'm leaving here soon.

Not really an FML, but I'm feeling a twinge of sadness that I'll basically be cramped in a car with my grandparents for hours on end for a few days with no internet to keep me company. :\

Guess I should install some of those games I got, so I can play 'em on the road...:\
