You Are Disturbingly Profound

You’re contemplative, thoughtful, and very intense.
Taking time to figure out the meaning of life is a priority for you.
Because you’re so introspective, you often react in ways that surprise people.
No one can really understand how you are on the inside… and that disturbs them.
Are You Disturbingly Profound or Profoundly Disturbing?

Hairy Hairy Haircuts

March 30, 2008 at 8:38 pm (Friends)

(like Hungry, Hungry Hippos.  But not.)

‘Tis the season for haircuts, apparently.  About 5 of my close, or sorta close, friends have gotten fairly dramatic haircuts in the past few days.  One of these haircuts I actually administered myself to roomie numero duo*.  All of the haircuts look good and cute, considering they all look about the same, but it’s just remarkable that they all seem to have chosen the same week in which to do it, and I can say that of the 5, only 2 actually have the potential of knowing each other in real life.  So I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that it is a nationwide spring phenomenon.  I guess the flapper look with a chin-length bob is in style again.  So when can I expect all the stores to start stocking fun flapper dresses again, eh?

*Disclaimer: Though it may appear from previous posts that I would want to do this to her in her sleep as revenge, this was in fact her idea!

Hip Hip Hooray!

March 27, 2008 at 10:28 am (Happy)

It’s another beautiful day, though it would be nice if there were less clouds…  But, the really good news is that both of my morning classes tomorrow have been canceled, so I get to sleep in for 3 days in a row, not just 2!  And el boyo gets out of rehearsal early tonight!  So yey!

Differing Opinions on Writing

March 26, 2008 at 9:49 pm (School, Vienna, Writing)

My professor for my Vienna class loves to bleed all over students’ papers.  And she’s a math professor.  Go figure.  Anyway, at the beginning of the semester, she was absolutely in love with my writing.  Now, she’s [trying to] telling me how I should write my papers.  And she found one sentence in my last paper that she thought was absolutely beautiful, and wants me to try to write more like it.  The sentence was: “Through poetry and diary entries written on and around her wedding day, Elisabeth [Empress of Austria at the end of the 19th century] expressed her already-growing discontent with her limited freedom.”  Now, is it just me, or is that sentence kinda mundane?  I don’t see anything particularly special about it, do you?

Also, apparently long sentences are bad.  Sorry lady, but I tend to be quite verbose with long, complex sentences whenever possible.  Don’t worry, I vary my length to make it interesting, but I do write long sentences when occasion calls for it.  It’s fun!  You should try it sometime rather than trying to quash someone else’s writing style!

How To Be a Friend: Part I

March 25, 2008 at 12:43 pm (Friends)

This is the first in what I predict will be a long list of dos and don’ts in friendships based on my experience (usually with roomie numero duo…)

Lesson 1: When you are talking to someone while walking somewhere, do not wait for them to finish whatever they are saying and then recount to them the conversation of the people walking near/past you verbatim.

Vienna Taking Over My Life

March 22, 2008 at 5:57 pm (Movies, Vienna)

I am watching Titanic with my sister, and when they are on the front of the ship, ie the most known scene from the movie (“I’m flying… Jack!), you can see part of the facade of the ship:


And all I could think was, that looks like a Hunderwasser design!


Vienna is taking over my life, seriously.

Stupid Irish

March 17, 2008 at 10:32 pm (Drinking, Holidays, School, Sleep)

Whoever decided that St. Patrick’s Day, aka International Get Drunk For No Reason Day, should be on a Monday, aka a school day, should be shot. Seriously. Some people actually attend school for an education and have to get up at 7:30am for class, and do not appreciate rowdy parties on a Monday night. Or a Wednesday (“Hump Day”) night for that matter. Or a Thursday night. But that is an issue for another post…

PS To the girls across the hall: screeching Amazon bird calls or whatever the heck sounds you are making are not funny in any way, shape, or form.  So stop.  Now.  Please.

Not a Bad Start to the Semester

March 17, 2008 at 2:30 pm (School, Sleep)

I just got back the very first actual graded pieces of work for two of my classes today, two papers that I vaguely remember writing at some point before break, and I got an A on both!  Not an A-, but an honest-to-goodness A.  This bodes quite well for the rest of the semester, I suppose.  At least it’s not more than half-way through the semester and I’m finding out that I’m failing or something, and only have 6 weeks to make up for it…

If only I had more sleep, then this would be a fairly fantastic day…

Vienna Here We Come!

March 7, 2008 at 9:43 am (School, Vienna)

I must admit, I’m slightly freaking out about the fact that I’ll be leaving school in 2 hours to go to the airport to leave for Vienna in 8 hours….  I’m really excited and really nervous.  Everyone keeps telling me how absolutely amazing it will be and all that jazz, but I’m still nervous and worried – and it’s not even about anything specific!  Ah well, we shall see what happens…  Wish me luck!

And hopefully, I’ll be able to update this while I’m there, so I don’t forget anything!
