stop for a moment and think about:

1. How beautiful/handsome everyone is at a wedding.
2. How stressing it is to give a speech.
3. How fun wedding receptions are when you're surrounded by people you love.
4. How homesick you can really get sometimes.
5. How interesting and strangely grown up you feel when you share a beer with a one Mr. Kolar.
6. Ben Folds doing a cover for Nine Inch Nails "Closer" and try to imagine how it would sound.

In the absence of: [10 Feb 2009|01:43am]
[ mood | blah ]

1. Sleeping. For some reason I am fully functional and can stay up as late as I want to on a school night with no horrific repercussions...except when I am covering someone's shift until 2am and I have to keep myself awake.

2. A sound mind. I now realize why I haven't drank an energy drink in two years. My head is pounding in rage.

3. A normal family unit. But then again, there is no such thing as normal. I guess what I'm trying to say is that my dysfunctional family life has split into two different directions. Or will split. Also known as my parents are getting a divorce.

It's not really something that should catch me off guard, but there's still that factor of weird/awkward/wtf thrown in.

If you're wondering how I am, my answer is "I've been better." And no, I'm not quite sure how I feel about it all yet. At least, not enough to articulate the words.

Extinct ibex is resurrected by cloning

It has also increased the possibility that it will one day be possible to reproduce long-dead species such as woolly mammoths and even dinosaurs.

Has Jurassic Park taught us NOTHING!?

Two things: [31 Jan 2009|05:50pm]
[ mood | content ]

1. It's really hard to type up a survey when you're half-asleep. One down, two to go.
2. I am apparently getting a refund from Eastern? And I am completely overwhelmed with the things I could or could not do with it. Like buy a car. Or skydive. Or invent car skydiving. Though I'm pretty sure I'd need more then just one refund to actually get that last idea to work.

OkaysoIliednot2but3. I might go to the world's oldest jazz club tonight. Cool, non?

I'm kind of liking the photoblag that Jessi's keeping up with. I feel like I should do it too and show some artwork, since that's what 80% of my time is currently being directed toward. I also feel like I would forget to bring my camera cord everytime I went to work. Bah.

Procrastination is beating motivation in this tug-of-what-I-should-be-doing-right-now-war [17 Jan 2009|04:30pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

In terms of what's been happening, I've been pretty lax at updating. Partly because of school work. Partly because I am lazy. And partly because our cable is currently on the outs because Comcast likes to play the "who should we fuck up this week?" game, leaving me to just update at work.

Chelsea moved out yesterday for Brooklyn. I'm gonna miss her...I'd like to think we both had child-like moments down to a T. Excited for really really silly things like dinosaurs and spray painting and how we would be screwed if zombies came down Kingwood because our house is non-zombie proof.

I'm feeling rather nostalgic and peculiar today, probably from a dream I had about Mike this morning. I think the caffeine I just downed kind of heightened the sense instead of help me focus on my project (which I originally wanted to start a couple hours ago, but now I couldn't care less).

Marcy's birthday party is today! and after this experience, I will probably never have a liver again because it will try to run away from me for being an abusive parent. For those of you who I forgot to facebook about it (hint: Stacky this means you if you read this in time - Heather's going too!) you should come to the Kingwood residence. Tonight at 10! Be there.

I think I've delayed myself enough. I'll leave you with two notes:
1. I think the stapler will always be perpetually broken in this computer lab.
2. Can you laugh without smiling? Because if you can...it's pretty hilarious. Almost all the roomies can do it but I don't because I feel really retarded when I try. It's funnier watching them do it. I think there's a video on Youtube that captures it perfectly, but I just don't feel like searching for it right now.

Ladies and gentlemen...after this semester is done, I will have my internet life again. And maybe a little bit of my social life back as well.

There's skipping a class... [02 Oct 2008|06:09pm]
[ mood | sarcastic ]

and then there's just TMI.

Hey you guys:

My name is blahblahblahwhocares. I am in your Psy 453 class. I am not able to
attend class today. Over the weekend, I ruptured a cyst in my right
ovary, and I am on four different types of medications. I feel
nauseous 90% of the time and there just wasn't a way for me to get to
class today either. I am hoping that someone would kindly share their
notes with me?

...she really could have just asked for notes? Or is that just me?

In other news, there's going to be a Bruce Springsteen concert at school next week; it's free for EMUers, and it's in support for Obama. I figure I might just go for shits and giggles just to see.

In less important but redeeming news, my art teacher assigned us to draw eggs for homework. The smarmy dill-hole next to me tells me everything that's wrong on my assignment (if there was an order of skills, he'd be the best in the class, and I'd probably be 3rd) until the prof tells him that his eggs look like kiwis. HAH

In environmentally-friendly news, I bought two new plants for my room. One has leaves that look like angel wings, and the other looks ridiculously spiky except it's not (they're quite soft, actually). There was a plant sale at Mark J today. :)

In supermaxiawesomeextreme news, fall is here.

EDIT: In real news, this just might be my favorite criminal yet.

because you signed off of gmail before I could ask. Is pathological lying in the DSM? If it is, what does it say about it? And if it isn't...why?

My dad called me today and told me that one of my favorite neighbors passed away on Saturday. She was right across the street from us and lived with her sister. They were both from the Philippines, so naturally my family became fast friends with them.
I remember my brother and I going over there all the time when we were little, playing with their dogs (they had about 4), or just keeping them company because our parents weren't home.
By the time she was diagnosed with cervical cancer, it was too late to do anything. All they could give her was medicine to help alleviate the pain. They celebrated her birthday early because they didn't know how much longer she had. Which is today, coincidently.
Ugh this sucks.

Drawing not only escalates my creativity, but my sarcasm as well. [22 Sep 2008|09:45pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

The assignment was to draw two things "floating in space" (or to make it easier to picture, think of stuff being molded in jello. Just kinda floating there. But with distant perspectives, of course) One object had to be mechanical, the other, organic.

Professor: Interesting concept on birds and bombs, but you know, you were supposed to have drawn straight from real life, not pictures you found online. Unless you have those?
Me: (thinking) Yes, my basement is chock full of them.
(saying) Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuh...nope. My bad.

So the nice part about just working in the labs over the weekend is that it still is like having a weekend.
Have I also mentioned that Peppermint Mocha is my favorite kind of pick-me-up? I've got about 9 chapters (3 from each class) to read for tests this week and this is my small (and sweet) source of comfort.

I keep getting distracted by random thoughts whenever I'm at work. I think it's because of whatever I'm reading and the instant reaction to look it up online. Like earlier I was looking up g Tummo (which is the meditation that monks practice to raise their body temperature)and I just got completely distracted for like twenty minutes because I wanted to see if I could do it too. (I technically could, but it would take years to practice and perfect) gah. Maybe I'll shut off the monitor so it's not so tempting. Back to studying!

EDIT: I also love the fact that they've set up a piano at the student center and only let students that know how to play (play well, I might add) on it. I don't know who's doing it now, but so far they've been fantastic. He's in the middle of playing Lux Aeterna (the main song in the movie Requiem for a Dream).

Just short of not updating in over a month (what a record breaker!) Let's just say that since the beginning of school my life has been supermaxiextremely busy. I'll even break it down into chunks.
School.Collapse )

Work.Collapse )

Remember when I said I was going to do a 5k? I was kidding.

I technically can't according to the doctor. I went for my knee (which grinds when it bends and aches sometimes for no reason) and she said from the x-ray pictures that it could be mild arthritis. And I would have to take some physical therapy session and work on it getting better. Two times a week. 45 minutes each session. Twenty sessions total.

If that doesn't help out, then I might have to be sent to a joint specialist and get injections for it? Or something? I don't know, the doc had a pretty thick accent. Either way, this is going to just compile onto an already crammed fall semester. I also am not sure how I'm going to get there most of the time. It's in Romulus, which is 20 minutes away from Ypsi, so I'll probably have to switch on borrowing cars from each roommate or use whoever's isn't being used at the time.

BLEGH my head is going to explode
