Known for its Space Western theme, Trigun is about a man named "Vash the Stampede" and the two Bernardelli Insurance Society employees who follow him around in order to minimize the damages inevitably caused by his appearance. Most of the damage attributed to Vash is actually caused by bounty hunters in pursuit of the "60,000,000,000$$" (sixty billion "double dollars") bounty on Vash's head for the destruction of the city of July. However, he cannot remember the incident clearly due to his amnesia. Throughout his travels, Vash tries to save lives using non-lethal force. He is occasionally joined by a priest, Nicholas D. Wolfwood, who, like Vash, is a superb gunfighter with a mysterious past.

@Kiba: I finished the book in 3 days. Well, I stopped reading it in Chapter 5 then when the competition was 3 days away, I began to resume reading it. I think I was really worried those last 3 days.
@Little: That's just my mother and sister's nature. They always make me what they thought they can't.
@BritLaw: Hehehe! I think I got all the luck! I was just a point away from Leo's, Computer Science competitor, score. I'm really lucky!
I DID IT!
I DID IT!
I was out almost a month long for the competition... and... I WON! Yeah!!!
I'm totally happy but I felt sorry for saying "Hey, you're stuck at top 2, again!" to Leo, an old classmate who happened to be the school's representative for Computer category regional competition last week. I'm really... I still felt bad about saying those words to him...
I haven't told my parents, yet, that I won the competition but I think they got the message or idea that I did 'cause I just laid my medal on top of my drawer. Well, I don't have the plan to even tell them that I'm representing the department but my mom ask me what's happening in school so I just blurt it out plainly and unemotionally. I really felt stiff when I told her, like I'm kind of irritated and frustrated 'cause she's asking me such [dumb] questions which really aren't. sigh~ Oh well...
I think I'm getting my "LUCK" back. My aunt's going back to New Jersey tonight (hooray!), I'm having a small but roomful homemade bookshelf, and I received Joyce's letter a week ago. Oh, and, I might be able to resume my dental check-up. I haven't seen my dentist since last year's May. I'm sure she'll be mad at me when she sees me again. Another one, I received $2 from Paypal for joining their Facebook program. Last year, December, at first I thought it was a scam but when I saw my Paypal account 15 days ago, I can't believe it. Man, if I knew that it was legitimate I would've added more friends in the list to make more money! Hehehe!
Okay, I wasn't able to watch any of the school's foundation program. And the town's fiesta is on the way... I don't know when classes will resume... I still have to review 'cause my professors postponed their exams until after the foundation day... or maybe after the town's fiesta. I'm getting hype just reliving my scores from my last exam. I'm getting good grades and/but I felt I haven't done my very best yet. Maybe I'll read more articles and books this month. And start self-studying some programming language or resume reading Japanese language materials.

Belinda: I guess you're right. But my current state on life isn't. I'm cramming! I've got lots of things to do.
Well, I have read 5 chapters of the book I borrowed from the library. It wasn't good. I mean, the foundation's coming up after 2 or maybe less than 2 weeks and I haven't read anything except those 5 chapters! Oh, darn! I'm not making progress.
My sister got this project or assignment on an education-related slogan and I was asked by our mother to make it! It's the deadline is tomorrow! Damn them!
I should be going now. I'm really busy now. I haven't had any time left for my own... at the moment. I hope I get out of this bad luck unbruised. And I hope I finish the reference book before Wednesday come.
Good luck to me! Ciao!

I went to Makiss's house because the gang insisted that we take the time to practice there. I declined at first, of course! I've to study a voluminous papers about computer while they're just going there to practice Adobe Photoshop for the upcoming foundation day. But I still went with Reggie and Aniel 'cause I got second thoughts of being able to have full concentration when I'm somewhere unsounded. (My house is beside the main highway, that's why I like houses that is located within a mile away from the highway.)
~sigh Nothing happened with the session. I was able to read something from a book but I wasn't able to understand anything. The others just played with the computers. I literally mean "Nothing happened."
It was a waste of time...
