This would be cooler if it was a Liprairie.

So, I feel vaguely accomplished. I have a pseudo-outline for one of my papers. I can do this. I can do this and still study for my other exams and get some sleep. I CAN DO THIS. I am sitting in the library, my internet finally connecting. AND I AM STARVING. I am supposed to meet up with [ profile] theo_winterwood for lunch very soon and then back to the library.

Several things:
+[ profile] crescent_venus - YOU SENT ME ANOTHER PACKAGE?! I have no idea what is in this one. I picked it up on my way to the library and can't wait to open it. *stares longingly at box*
+That "fucking behemoth" project? cost $70 to print at Kinkos and the department won't cover it. BULLSHIT, I cry. BULLSHIT. Which means I owe $7. Which is a lot of money at this point to myself.
+I am tired. Probably because I have not eaten. Hence, exhuastion.
+Bradley James (Arthur) has a mancrush on Santiago Caberra (Lancelot).
+I want food. Where is [ profile] theo_winterwood

Okay, back to JUDE THE OBSCURE. OH GOD KILL ME. Why did I decided to write a paper this late in the game on Jude?

pass out time

I have no desire to finish any of my work. This is bad. I can't even force myself to work.

Thankfully I am done with my lab class. We went over edits to our final report and clocking in at over a hundred pages it is done. Fucking behemoth.

Maybe I will go to bed now and get up early. I figure this is also a bad plan as well. If I mainline all my work tomorrow then I can watch Supernatural and go to bed at a fairly decent hour and then...I lost my train of thought. Damn.

Anais Nin.

"I feel my past like an unbearble weight on me, like a curse, the source of every movement I make, every word I utter. At certain moments the past surmounts me, and Henry recedes into unreality. A terrible reserve, an unnatural purity envelops me, and I close out the world completely. Today I am the jeune fille of Richmond Hill, writing on an ivory white desk about nothing at all.

I have no fear of God, and yet fear keeps me awake at night, fear of the devil. And if I believe in the devil, I must believe in God. And if evil is abhorrent to me, I must be a saint.

Henry, save me from beatification, from the horrors of static perfection. Precipitate me into the inferno."

-from The Diary of Anais Nin

"Today is his birthday."

I AM SO TIRED. And I got like no work done do to exhaustion. I decided to start watching Wildfire to see if the chick who plays Ruby II could act. I can't make any judgments yet. Either on her acting or the show. BUT NO ONE TOLD ME NANA VISITOR WAS IN IT. You all fail. Nana Visitor was awesome on DS9 and randomly one of the best things about the Friday the 13th reboot. Also, she looks like she should be Chloe from Smallville's Mom. No. For serious:

I rest my case. Also, I am teaching myself how to use GIMP. While I should be writing papers. So many papers.

I believe in miracles, you sexy thing!

One final down! Two more to go - both on Friday. I still have lots of papers to write but still! I was up ridiculously late this morning. I got three hours of sleep? I talked with my teacher for a bit after the final about my paper and the class. She gave everyone in the class seed packets (this was my cultural landscape class). It was exciting. Getting back to the room, I ended up taking a nap on Alyssa's bed. (I realize my bed is right next to hers but she has a fan, and a husband. And headphones. It was comfy. Leave me alone.)

Alyssa and I grabbed lunch at Goolricks and are now chilling for many hours at Hyperion.

Update and a Rec

I am currently attempting to study for my cultural landscape exam. It is one question. I fell this go either of two ways. First: Exam is uber easy. Second: Exam is uber hard. Therefore, I am studying. I feel like I shouldn't be to concerned about it but I want to be prepared.

Blah. I got like maybe three hours of sleep this morning. THREE. POSSIBLY LESS. Sleeping was difficult. I am so annoyed. Meanwhile, I have no idea how to cite a Cultural Landscape Report. Nope, not at all. Darn. Heads up to those in the UMW vicinity: Will most likely be hanging around Hyperion again today. Probably around 3 this afternoon. Check twitter.

Oh man, I wrote an e-mail to my Mum last night asking for money (end of the semester, dude. I am tapped out. And I need me caffeine fix. As a fellow caffeine junkie my Mum will understand) and I totally signed off with : P.S. HELP ME OBI-MOMMY KENOBI, YOU ARE MY ONLY HOPE. This strikes me as ridiculous amusing. Probably because of the three hours of sleep I am working off of.

True Love's Kiss (Jared/Jensen) by [ profile] destina
-Retelling of Disney's Sleeping Beauty. This is for [ profile] j2_everafter. It is ridiculous and wonderful and the best reward for getting work done. I am totally going to be giggling about this through my exam. Oh man. LOVE. Disney J2 crack, man.

Jared stared at him a moment. "You know how to fight?"


"Use a sword?"

"I'm great with a sword."

Something about the way Jensen said it made Jared cough a bit. He caught himself absently fondling the hilt of his own sword, and dropped his hand quickly. Jensen lifted an eyebrow.

I am currently working in Hyperion. I am on my second LARGE ASS COFFEE of the day. I am becoming quite enamored of the Venti Iced Americano. Oh dear. Caffeine overload.

My Cultural Landscape paper relates to my British Victorian Novel class. DUDE. CONNECTIONS. They are awesome.

Meanwhile, next week is going to be crazy. Not ONLY is it dead week but Thursday is Star Trek and Grad Ball and SUPERNATURAL. So the plan is to go see Star Trek at 7:00. Go to Grad Ball at 9:30. Grab SPN through other means and watch it Friday. Then grad rehearsal Friday. Saturday, GRADUATE. OH GOD. EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER.

Um. Work. Have some pretty;

I am almost entirely done with two classes. Just a matter of sending projects to professors. Damn. Working in Hyperion. And I just beat Alyssa at Rock, Paper, Scissors. I am a genius. I am currently making a outline for my cultural landscape paper. I think it might help. This is my last HUGE paper. It's due Tuesday so I need to have like half of it done tonight.

I'm Gonna Let it Shine

Yesterday was fantastic. I was up till the early morning finishing a paper. As it was, I got very little sleep. Which sucked. I was still exhausted from the day before in which I had stayed up finishing my presentation of the Richardson-Olmsted Complex in Buffalo. I was stuck working on my class's presentation for tonight, yesterday till like almost an hour after class had ended. (I had to compile everyone's slides, revise said slides, resize images, add maps, etc..)

All in all I was done with work at 5:30 after being busy the entire day and working on very little sleep. Then...

I SAW PETER YARROW OF PETER, PAUL, AND MARY IN CONCERT; It was fantastic. I ended up getting there about ten minutes late but it was a fantastic experience. Peter was a delight. At the end of the concert, he talked about how he could only sing Puff the Magic Dragon with young people and invited people up on stage to sing with him. I was by myself and totally shy so I stayed in my seat. He started singing then stopped and said how he knows how there are people out in the audience who wished they had gone up on stage but were shy. We had ten seconds to get up on stage. ^___^

So I went up. It was AWESOME. We sang Puff and a medley of This Little Light of Mine and My Land is Your Land. It was just an amazing experience. Peter hugged everyone afterward and I GOT A BIG HUG and a KISS on the forehead. Roomie had to miss the concert due to class but she go to see Peter at the end. I dragged her on stage and he sung to us about being pretty and sweet to the tune of Over the Rainbow. Then kissed us.

It was wonderful. Then I got to go with Roomie to Capital Ale House to meet up with her class and Professor Harding. Having a beer and talking with your prof is a little surreal but awesome.

Also, discovered Roomie has a male clone.

The problem (there are actually many) with being friends with almost entirely English majors is that they keep screwing up my writing style. This might be blamed on my taking of English classes this semester as well. But still! This paper I really need to finish typing is sounding like some ridiculous ode to baseball stadiums. I want to sleep. Bleh. I have been up like almost 20 hours. This is ridiculous.

This is the final week of classes. I have completed three presentations. I still have one more to go. As well as MANY papers. One of which is due tomorrow.

That is what is going on in my life. Next week something interesting might happen.

As it is, I spent the day listening to presentations. And learning to love black coffee. And making a powerpoint for my last presentation.

Paper time!

And the Orioles won tonight! Thank god. I am so glad I missed the last series of games.

I saw the Orioles play the [Devil] Rays Friday night. It was amazing. I FINALLY GOT TO CAMDEN YARDS! I saw my first (and until friday night, only) Major League game at Memorial (the old stadium in Baltimore). After they built Camden Yards, games were constantly sold out so I never got to go to another Orioles game since I moved to Kansas.

Friday nights at Camden Yards is Student Night so Left Upper Reserve tickets are $6. [ profile] theo_winterwood and I were literally sitting in the last row. The nosebleed seats. I had problems making out the scoreboard and the players numbers but that is why I have a friend with crazy awesome vision. (I need to go get my eyes checked before I lose my insurance) The game was great.

I listened to last night's game via internet radio and it was also GREAT. Today's game? Horrifying. 11-3 Rays. Damn. No sweeps yet but still. I didn't follow today's game because I couldn't find any sort of A/V feed.

Meanwhile, no work is getting done. And I changed my baseball tag.

Though I like the various forms of football in the world, I don't think they begin to compare with these two great Anglo-Saxon ball games for sophisticated elegance and symbolism. Baseball and cricket are beautiful and highly stylized medieval war substitutes, chess made flesh, a mixture of proud chivalry and base - in both senses - greed. With football we are back to the monotonous clashing armor of the brontosaurus. ~John Fowles
