cap ou pas cap? [10 Oct 2006|02:10am]
pendant travaillant ce soir, j'ai pensé des beaucoup de choses. aprés l'orientation a dimanche, je suis plus nerveuse pour aller a perpignan. est-ce que la famille avec qui je resterai sera bizarre ou mechant? est-ce que je me manquerai ma propre famille beaucoup? est-ce que quatre mois séparé va ruiner ma liaison? mais c'est possible que ma liaison est ruinné maintenant. tout á coup ce soir, j'avais le sentiment que mon amour et moi ne serrons pas ensemble toujours. c'est vraiment triste pour moi, mais je ne pense pas qu'il peut m'aimer comme je voudrais, ou comme j'ai bessoin. et je pense que je suis trop égoïste. au debut de notre liaison, tout était parfait, comme j'ai imaginé l'amour vraie: excitante, amusante et très belle. mais maintenant, tout a changé. peut-être c'est ma faut, peut-être c'est sa faut, peut-être c'est la faut de ne personne, mais seulement le destin. je suis triste, et j'ai peur d'avenir. mais je ne sais pas ce que je dois faire. quelle action serra la meillure? je ne sais pas. peut-être je ne peux pas savoir.

je ne peut pas expliquer toutes ceux sentiments en anglais. je suis sotte. sdkhglskdgh.

i just got done with a 20 minute class! it was magical. he handed out our [evil evil evil] take home midterms, then we discussed whether to have class thursday or not. i was just sitting in the back, minding my own business, when doc looks at me and asks "donohoe, should we have class thursday?" all i had to do was shake my head no, et voila, no 8 am class until after break.

so about having a new video for you all to see this weekend... not so much. sorry!

seeing bell hooks tonight was really, really inspiring/motivating/whatever. i'm really excited to write my article now and read her books. she had such a strong presence, despite being a short little high-pitched lady.

i also felt grateful for my relationship with brandon, because i don't think gender roles really affect us too much. i know that he would never tell me that i "think too much" and the fact that i strive for intelligence, education and somewhat ambitious [...as well as ambiguous] career goals does not intimidate him or bother him. he never makes me feel weak. and as far as i can tell i do the same for him. hooopefully he agrees

i just loved what she said about feminism and men. it really is sooo true that men are oppressed by this "white patriarchal capitalist society." i was impressed by the high turn up of men, and the fact that the majority of people asking questions were men. feminism is not just a women's issue, dontchaknow.

woohoo i am pumped.

what is cheaper and less smelly than a perm? going to sleep with your hair in braids every night! yeah man.

i started up myspace again. why? i do not know. myspace is awkward and the songs aren't loading for me so i can't even pick out a sweet jam for the millions who visit me to enjoy. but you know. i got bored.

everyone, i am not as nice as you think! a girl i work with thought i was conservative and churchy until... a little while ago. i'm not. i am just on my best behavior at work. and... i am a nerd who loves school. but i'm... still.. cool. right? and i swear, okay? fuck. next time i swear in front of you, do not act all shocked and like it is a freak show unless you want to get beat. that's right. i said it. :O :O :O i tell ya, this is what you get for being nice to people and not swearing every other word. people think you are freak.

i watched an episode of the office without brandon. :[ i feel terrible. it's like i cheated on him. sort of. but probably worse!

this month is going to be busy. on top of classes, i have stuff and junk going on every night. DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MY SCHEDULE? OKAY.

monday: worrrrk
tuesday: model un and night class
wednesday: worrrk
thursday: orchestra practice
friday: worrrrk
saturday: worrrk and more worrrrk
sunday: sweet, sweet freedom

i also have to somehow write a bunch of articles for the paper. why did i volunteer for three this issue? i don't know. i'm stupid.

i get to see bell hooks speak tomorrow! wahoo. and take some tests.

this is the longest entry ever omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg done.

my sister had to go to the hospital today. i talked to her on the phone and the first thing she said was, "emily, i don't feel so good."

things are kind of lame right now. i would like to hibernate. and be constantly wrapped up in a huge, comfy fur coat. in other words i would like to be a bear.

apparently, the new library having wireless is going to be detrimental to my studying habits.

today in french class, we all discussed which cities we want to visit - we will have three weeks of vacation over the semester, and all of europe at our fingertips! being so far away for four months is going to be quite a new experience for me - i get homesick when i go two weeks without seeing my family - but i feel ready for it now. i'm going to learn a lot and change a lot and experience a lot and i. can't. wait. sick of me talking about it yet? i've only just begun, my friends! feel free to remove me from your friends lists at any time.

it's weird to hear people my age talk about things like getting engaged. i'm so not ready for that kind of thing. but i'm only a year and a half away from the age my mother was when she married my dad. weird weird weird.

what have i been doing for the past half hour? that is right, watching cheesy pam & jim music videos on youtube!!!! i feel this is

a. a productive use of my time
b. better than homework
c. mostly just proof that i am a great girlfriend because what i really want to do is watch more episodes but i promised brndn that i wouldn't watch any without him!!

this weekend has been suberb. today i had the WHOLE day off [and, if this new work schedule works out, i'll have every sunday off - a guaranteed day off from both work and school every week! totally sweet] and i got to see my sister and i got some great news about my financial aid and i got to spend lots of time with brndn, something i have sorely missed. and the sun even made an appearance! and i have polaroid film!

i just got back from my first orientation meeting for ¡francia! it made me so excited, and all the other girls going are really nice [no boiz] and it's going to be a fun fun fun time. then rachel escorted me to meijer, where i took my passport photos. it's all happening!!

tonight i get to see "the full monty" on campus for freeeeee because i'm reviewing it for the paper. so yeah. bring on the nudez. i guess. :[

last night was a model u.n. meeting and one of my fellow palestinians could be clive owen's identical twin. he does not have the same voice/general presence as ol' clive, however.

i dreamt that gas cost $4.95/gallon.

oddly enough, having my car broken into somewhat raised my spirits.

ice-age heat wave, can't complain
if the world's at large, why should i remain?
walked away to another plan
gonna find another place, maybe one i can stand
i move on to another day
to a whole new town with a whole new way
went to the porch to have a thought
got to the door and again, i couldn't stop
