Now that I have a job, I'm trying to figure out what to do with my remaining free time that's fairly cheap but still productive.
I think I might start reading more library books. I can watch movies on Andy's netflix account, too. I would like another hobby, though...hmm. I should learn how to do something useful. Any ideas?
On another note, I've decided not to study abroad just due to circumstances. I am continuing to save up money to visit England, though, and also possibly Denmark. I think it would be a mistake not to visit my relatives while I have the chance. I mean, c'mon, it's an excuse to go to DENMARK. Plus I can get to know my extended family, and maybe a few phrases in Danish! I'm dying to go overseas again, it's been too long. See this Galway icon? That was from my Ireland trip over three years ago.
To me, the most depressing thing in the world is when two people break up who were once madly in love. It's the killing of hope, the allowance of jealousy or each others faults to tear apart the soul, little by little, imperfection by imperfection...
Last week + this weekend has been the most stress filled time I've dealt with this year.
Thank God I'm going to have a legit relaxing weekend coming up! I'm looking forward to a small dinner party at Andy's on Friday that will most likely turn into a festival of bad movies. Also, on Saturday we have tickets to go see the school production of The Importance of Being Earnest. The school plays I've been too have always been good, so I'm excited.
Books: And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater - Kurt Vonnegut
Songs: "The Haunting [B-side]" - Anberlin "Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect" - The Decemberists "All Cleaned Out" - Elliott Smith
Movies: Persepolis La Vie en Rose Confessions of a Shopaholic
Random: I always feel like when I underline anything on the internet, it looks like I made a hyperlink. I don't know if I'm the only one who thinks this. It bothered me so much when I underlined the movie titles that I had to change to italics. I am insane.
Yesterday, we spent the entire day decking out the house in way too many Christmas decorations. My mom goes, "Do you think it's too much to put this blue garland around the windows?" and I looked at her and went, "...too much? NEVER!" That was how most of the day went. It looks freakin' awesome...with the exception of one thing.
I got a 67% on my math test. I know that sucks, but at least it's not a 40% like I predicted, and I still have a shot at getting out of this class alive. Only 3% away from a C, right??
In other news, Andy's 21st birthday party is this weekend, should be...interesting. I've also got a movie date with my neighbor, we're going to watch "She's The Man" (which I have my doubts about, lol.) But anyway, yay for social activity! Oh, college, I really missed you over the summer.
