 Hey everyone,

I have officially bridged the divide between LJ and "real life"...and by that I mean that one of my floormates caught me on LJ and was like "Are YOU on LIVEJOURNAL?!!" (well, maybe not with quite so much enthusiasm) and it turns out she used to use it too and that night after we talked she started a new one and is planning on using it. I am actually really excited about this because the whole reason I started a LJ months ago was to be anonymous so that I could express myself freely. But since then, and especially since I started college, I have made great strides in expressing myself honestly and genuinely in all aspects of my life. I realized that I don't really need the divide anymore, and I think that's healthy. Also, I have a super cool new LJ friend! I'm really interested to see how she will describe her life to anonymous strangers on the internet. You learn a lot about people that way.

So anyway, if you feel so moved, you should add empyrean_blue ! Although I didn't ask her about doing this so I can't guarantee she'll add you back. But I think she wants friends, and I told her I would share mine, because mine are lovely. :)
yeah this should probably be in a cutCollapse )

 Well, it's the week before finals, which my college affectionately refers to as "Hell Week". Joy. Actually, I'm super excited - it will be a difficult week, but next week both my exams are not finals, just normal exams, and they're both on Tuesday, so I can spend the three days after that earning money, hanging out with my roommate who's in the same situation, and trying to help my stressed-out floormates and friends. Hah, long sentence. But yeah, it will be good. 

And NO I'm not procrastinating right now! I'm taking a study break. It's important. :P

Yeah I really don't have anything substantive to say so if you're waiting for that you should stop reading now...
I can't WAIT to go home! 
I want to..

c a n ' t w a i t . . .Collapse )Aside from that I have no idea what I'll be doing over winter break. I have a feeling I'll just be bored out of my mind. Oh well. Life swings like a pendulum backward and forward between pain and boredom.

 I feel like updating...nothing in particular...I should be reading...what else is new.

I didn't mean to write this at all; it went from a post secret to my philosophy on life. Let me know if you could follow my thought process (if you want to, whatever). I'm forcing myself to not apologize for the fact that I'm in a "weird mood". This is important to me.

I'm totally embarrassed posting this, in case I'm introducing this situation to my non-American friends. But Keith Olbermann is awesome. Also, I learned a new word! Rapacious. Cool.

 Poll #xxxx

When I say "LiveJournal", "live" is pronounced...

"live" as in "alive".
"live" as in "living".
Just curious. :)

As far as life goes...
I have a ton of random little things to do/buy/look up before I leave. I'm getting really emotional and I'm basically driving myself crazy. I'm working on cleaning out my room. Packing isn't a big deal; since I'm flying I don't have much I can take with me. That makes things a little easier, I guess. But when I'm not cleaning, I have absolutely nothing to do, and that's really irritating me. I'm realizing that I'm not as patient as I like to think I am. I know I can handle a few more days, though. I'LL BE FINE. Arghh. This is such a weird experience! Hopefully this will be my last whiny post about college, as I'm sure you're all getting sick of it by now. ;)

 I've been family vacationing this week, and I'm tempted to write about all my family's awkward interactions with my extended family...I'll try and summarize it. 

I guess most of the awkwardness (at least in my case) comes from the fact that I'm shy. Still. I thought I was over that! I mean, I can talk to anyone, it's not like a fear or anything, but I do get kind of anxious about social situations I can't even believe how stupid this sounds when I don't know the people well...I guess? When I talk to my extended family whatever I say normally sounds fake. I don't like that. I would like to be more genuine. But see, I never see them, and when I do I'm supposed to pretend like they're my best friends, but best friends who don't know what's been going on in my life. That doesn't happen in real life; my best friends know what's going on and everyone else is more distant from me. Does that make sense? Also, whenever I talk to them I find myself speaking exactly the way my mom does. I mean, it's kind of cute I guess, but it's annoying...I love my mom but I don't want to be her! Haha, I know that's natural. Everyone turns into their parents. I just thought it would take a bit longer for me, I guess. :/

Umm, so yeah, that's what's been going on. Back home soon so I can pack like a madwoman, woo! </motivation>

 Hey, remember that whole "tell me something to blog about" meme thing from a few months back? 

Well I have one more question! I received this one last and when I got to it lambofcurl101th was in Africa (!) and it felt rude to do it then. So I saved it. :)

Favorite Disney prince and why. 

Best question ever? I think so. Collapse )

Stolen from [info]bugbeary

I talk about all seven books, so SPOILERS and all that. Although if you haven't read them all by now, you can't really blame me. But if that's the case you shouldn't be on LJ anyway, GO READ THEM. Really. lol

Notice how much more decisive I am about HP than I am about politics. :PCollapse )

Wellll that was fun. :)

Also: I'm cleaning out my flist soon; comment if we don't talk much and you want to stay (see a couple entries back for more info).

 Today I babysat for this one and a half year-old girl for the first time. I didn't know this before but her parents are teaching her English and Spanish, speaking almost all Spanish in the home. (I'm so jealous of that; I'll be working for years to become truly bilingual, and in a few years she'll know Spanish better than me without doing any work. Anyway.) 

I started speaking Spanish to her, and it was so much fun! I hadn't realized how long it has been since I had spoken Spanish, so it was kind of difficult to call it up, especially the grammar stuff. But since she's one and can't really speak much in any language, my knowledge of "mono!" "bebe!" "oso!" "silla!" "adonde vamos?" "quieres agua?" and "otra bebe!" was totally good enough. Ahaha. She did understand English though, which was good. This was one of the few times she actually responded to what I said, and it totally made my day:

Her: *puts her doll in the doll stroller, then takes it out, hands it to me, and gestures to the stroller*
Me: Poner ella?
Her: YA!

Ahhh so adorable! I'm assuming "ya" was her saying "yeah" in a Spanish accent, rather than her ordering me to do it. Hopefully. So anyway, I put it in the stroller. Ahahaha. This was exciting for me because now that I think about it, this is the first time I've spoken to a native speaker in Spanish, aside from my teacher. Ever. And this is proof that I actually know this language, at least bits and pieces of it, and I'm really proud of that. Then I went home and I was still thinking in Spanish...if you know more than one language you can understand what that means. (I'm proud of that too, I guess.) :)
