Stolen from redux:

In the year 2006 I resolve to:

Learn to eat fire.



Get your resolution here




*sighs* Man, it's been a crazy semester. I feel like I'm still recuperating. Good, though; I got A's in all my classes for the very first time ever (w00t!).

Got a new computer for Christmas, but I sorta kinda broke it, so I had to send it in for repairs *sigh*. Still, it's kind of nice to be mostly bereft of Internet. Well, except for the terminally boring parts. I figure I'll ease my way back into fandom around January when I get my computer back, but until then there's reading the three million Bujold books I checked out from the library, and working on my mystery puzzle. There's a little mystery story that goes along with it, and putting together the puzzle lets you solve the mystery. I like having to work it out for myself instead of trying to match everything up to the box.

I just feel so confused about what I want to do next. I think it's because I'm getting older, and my choices are (or seem to be) becoming fewer. I mean, I have a career now, and it doesn't seem likely to change any time soon. I haven't had a BF since--well--high school, and I find it difficult to even imagine myself with anybody. There's RL stuff, and Internet stuff, and there simply isn't enough time to do everything that I'd ideally like to do.

But then-- I've always been cursed with a sense of perspective. I know perfectly well that I'll probably end up doing something totally different for a living. There are plenty of single people my age who go on to get married, even the ones who didn't date much. I'm not going to be involved in any Internet group forever, and it's silly to think that I would. Barring unforeseen accidents, I've got the rest of my life ahead of me, and it'll probably be way longer than what I've already lived. But it'd be nice just to be able to wallow in my melancholy mood without that little voice of reason piping up.

Though, really, I'm not melancholy at all. I seem to do most of my complaining when I'm actually happy.

*shrugs* 32 out of about 100; not bad, I think. Pretty much the only one I haven't read and want to read is Slaughterhouse Five

Create your own surrealist masterpiece

Here's the one that I made.

This one is my favorite, though it is not by me.

Ain't it grand what you can find on the Internet while procrastinating?

Well, I can no longer say that I've never been stung by a bee.

I'll write up a post on Ireland in a few weeks. Got too much to do right now *sigh*

Okay, I'm staying at a hostel now until I move into my more permanent housing. I really don't like leaving my stuff out, but it doesn't seem dangerous and everyone does it. So I waver between believing that I'm a silly ninny and believing that I'm a fool and I'll come back one day to all my things being gone. I am keeping my money and ID next to my skin at all times, so that's some (small) consolation.

I don't think I'll be on the 'net much this summer, either. I mean, I have free Internet here, and I'll probably have it at my permanent place. But my laptop has a three-prong plug, and my converter is built for two, and putting a three-to-two prong adapter between the two of them only results in a busted converter ^_^;;;. I could probably deal with it with a voltage converter to modulate, but I'm not sure that it's worth all of the effort of coordinating getting one from the US. Internet is pretty cheap here, if I *have* to use it, and the library at the university will probably have it anyway. Just means no more mindless hours surfing the 'Net. I may be better off without it anyway and if I say this enough I may just begin to believe it. I'm just hoping my folks can send me another converter, so I can charge my iPod. Can't live without my sweet sweet music, after all!

Anyway, guess that's about it for now.

I'm in the Shannon airport now. They lost my luggage *sigh*, but there's free WiFi, which almost makes up for it. And now I should go so I don't miss the bus.

Today was a Stevie Wonder kind of day.

My personal day, unfortunately, wasn't nearly as awesome.  I got up at 7:30 to meet a professor for his office hours.  Or at least that was the plan; I ended up not getting there until 9:30.  When, surprise! he was out at a meeting.  That ended when I had class.  So I talked to him for about 10 seconds, and it looks like I'll either have to meet him at 8 am tomorrow morning or miss part of the last Linear Algebra class of the semester.

Then I went to classes, was very very sleepy partially because of getting up so early, even though I spent most of my time up early questioning my will to live/move, and partially because I've been short on sleep for a while.  I bought french fries for no good reason.  I did research with my group for the last group project (pause for a *hallelujah* here).  Then I dragged myself home and took a 4-hour nap.

And now I'm eating dinner.  Which is rice and lima beans.  And my head is cloudy because I overslept.

Holy crap, there really are zombies!

From the link:
After death, this virus is able to restart the heart of it’s victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believe to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.”

Don't think it's real, though.

Gah.  I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow, but right now I feel like the sky is falling down and there's nothing I can do about it.  And perversely enough, it's all my fault.

Who thought it would be a good idea to set off fireworks at 3 am last night?  I can sleep through a lot of things, but that's not one of them.

It's such a good feeling to finish everything one has to do.

I'm annoyed because my college is making free music available. But the client requires Windows Media 10, and that requires Windows XP. Meanwhile I'm plodding along with Windows 2000 (which the school gave me, I might add), so no free music for me. *pout*

morgandavis? Is everything all right?

Thank God for Spring Break.  I just wish it was longer.  It's gonna be hard to go back on Monday.

Yesterday, I had the best Peking duck ever.

I wrote a personal statement tonight, the first real writing I've done in several years.  It was like trying to remember the moves to play an old video game; I just sat there for a while, and slowly I got into a formal writing mindset.  I'd better get back into that mindset; I'm convinced that the main reason I didn't get a particular internship I wanted was because of my excreble essay there.  I just hope I don't wake up tomorrow to find that it's all total unredeemable crap.

I'm a little worried about this thing, though.  The deadline is March 20, and a professor who was supposed to give me a recommendation letter didn't come in today.  I just hope that he comes in tomorrow, or else I'm really screwed.
