( 518) I was apparently off by five, but I'm too lazy to go back and fix it all [24 May 2005|08:03pm]
[ mood | groggy ]

Yesterday, my hot pink and black Converse and my new iPod earphones arrived. I am in love with both. The former, for obvious reasons (these shoes are pink, yo), and the latter, just because they fit my ears perfectly and the music comes through considerably louder. I can blast my music in my ears again!

I’ll be deaf by the end of the week.

I also made some plain Avril icons too. I made these when I was supposed to be writing one of the two papers I have due at the end of the week.

Avril icons hereCollapse )

Just got back from Star Wars again.

I’ve discovered some new observations that may or may not make anymore sense than the ones I wrote up earlier this morning as I haven’t had any sleep since 8am Friday morning. That’s right. We pulled an all nighter. I honestly don’t know how I made it this long without passing out.

Um. Beware for spoilers.

Insert witty cut tag hereCollapse )

Yep. So I finally saw it.

I think it’s all just sort of … settling in right now. I didn’t even have any words when we all exited the theater. It was just one of those amazing moments when you know you’ve just taken part in history. It’s amazing, but it’s also sad at the same time because this marks the end of a chapter that’s been written and shaped over the course of, what, thirty years? More?

More thoughts: Star Wars: Episode III - spoilersCollapse )

I have been enlightened, and have now given into the madness that is Audioscrobbler.

It tickles me how fun it is to see all my latest played music compiled. Yeah, bitch. I said "tickled."

It's official. I get to see Star Wars tomorrow!

I am beyond excited.

In the mean time, I was bored, so I finally got around to uploading all the pictures I've been taking here and there. I want to use a new picture for my Facebook profile. So. Any suggestions? It would be appreciated.

Ew. It's Scarachel.Collapse )

And that's all, folks.

I did it! I caved!

I bought the pink converse.

My credit card is surely going to hate me now.

I got to register for next Fall's quarter of classes. Well, the first three anyway. I've been unreasonably excited for this passing period to come, because I get to register under sophomore standing now. You know what that means? First dibs on classes!

After the juniors and seniors of course. But still! I managed to get the three classes I wanted to sign up for during the first round. The only schedule change I had to make was pushing back my film discussion an hour, but I have a feeling I'll still be able to switch into the 11:00am class. Maybe. It all depends on which will be more hectic. Running from ELLSN to HSSB or running from the Psych trailer to ELLSN? Granted, I won't know that dilema until I sign up for my fourth class, the dinosours one, which may very well be full by the time I get around to signing up for it. But anyway. This is my schedule so far for next year: (everything bolded is what I'm already signed up for)

Monday:
11:00 – 11:50: Dinosaurs Lecture PSYCH 1824
1:00 – 1:50: Intro to Italian (HSSB 1211)
4:00 – 5:50: Film 96 Advanced Film Analysis BUCHN 1920
7:00 – 8:50: Film 96 Advanced Film Analysis Lab BUCHN 1930


Tuesday:
10:00 – 10:50: Dinosaurs Discussion PSB- S 2724
12:00 – 12:50: Film 96 Advanced Film Analysis Discussion ELLSN 1710
1:00 – 1:50: Intro to Italian (HSSB 1211)
3:00 – 4:50: Writing 2K (GIRV 2112)


Wednesday:
11:00 – 11:50: Dinosaurs Lecture PSYCH 1824
1:00 – 1:50: Intro to Italian (HSSB 1211)
4:00 – 5:50: Film 96 Advanced Film Analysis BUCHN 1920


Thursday:
1:00 – 1:50: Intro to Italian (HSSB 1211)
3:00 – 4:50: Writing 2K (GIRV 2112)


Friday:
11:00 – 11:50: Dinosaurs Lecture PSYCH 1824


1. I think even if the Dinosours class is full by the time the next passing time rolls around, I may just try to crash it. Why Dinosours, you ask? Because it fulfils one of the last two science requirements I need. And lord only knows I'm not a chemistry person.
2. Why Italian? I'm seriously considering studying abroad in Italy for a semester my junior year. I have a feeling it might be a good idea to know at least some of the language.

Zappos is having a sale online. I know this because they sent me an email telling me. If I can find pink Converse on there for relatively cheep, I'm so whipping out the card.

And to all you lucky bitches who got/get to see the midnight screening of Star Wars: Episode III ... you suck, and I hate you, and you better tell me how it went!

I have to wait until the weekend, but at least I get to see it.

So. My professor pretty much shot down the latter part of my thesis and asked me to do a little more work focusing on the mysagonistic themes of the film, as well as the subtext in reference to the movie as a referencial element.

The ironic thing is that the latter of those two was what I originally wanted to focus on.

I think asking me to focus on the first, however, is a little unfair. I'm supposed to write this paper according to my interpretation. Not hers.

"Through the use of satirical dialog and visual narration, this film invites the viewer to take part in the chaotic mania of the main character’s mind, calling to attention the use of narrative dialog as an element of film as it comments on a society dehumanized and conditioned by capitalism and modern day consumerism."

My thesis statement for Fight Club.

I'm presenting my "work in progress" for my seminar project tomorrow.

Comments. Critiques. All would be very appreciated.

Veronica Mars – final thoughtsCollapse )

Random Gilmore Girls thoughtsCollapse )

I hate reading. I have two presentations to prepare for Monday and Tuesday. And I have to devise a thesis on the film, Fight Club.

And did I mention that I hate reading?

This shall all be remedied with Hellraiser and Suspiria tonight. And maybe Shrek 2 afterwards, since I have a feeling I’m gonna need a happy movie.

OH. And my Stars CD arrived yesterday. So far, I’m enjoying it very much.

Knox is dead.

That's the third hamster this year. Sigh.

But I have the room all to myself for the next couple of days! You know what that means ...

PARTY.

Or ... you know ... scary movies that we'll be too scared to actually watch.

Five hours of big breasted women, skanky dancing, booty, and Britney Spears. All finished.

It was research for my sociology paper. I have to investigate stereotyping in the media, and I chose to write my paper on how women are portrayed in music videos, hence all the big busts and booty shaking.

That god damned Milkshake song is stuck in my head now.

I think I have enough material for 4-5 pages though. I think the problem in the end will be condensing everything, because I found quickly that I have a lot to say.

I'll probably start writing the paper tomorrow after Veronica Mars. As you can tell, I've got all my priorities in the wrong order.

But ... Veronica Mars!

We find out who killed Lilly Kane in just under nineteen hours (for me)!

My excitement cannot be put into words.

[ mood | awake ]

Today is officially mother's day.

My mom's been calling a lot lately, and while I was really annoyed at first, I got to thinking that this is going to be the first mother's day in which I'm not with her. She's probably really lonely right now. I can't exactly apologize for the evasive manner in which I've treated her on the phone over the past couple of days, but I can't help but feel a little guilty. I miss her. It kind of just donned on me today. This time last quarter, I went home for a couple of days, so I got my share of annoyance and I returned to the dorms happy. I'm not going home at all this quarter, and for the first time all school year, I'm starting to really miss home. Maybe that's why I feel like I've been running on such a short fuse as of late. I'm working on it. There's just five more weeks. Four weeks of school, and the last of finals. Or is it three? I can't even keep track anymore. My mom's coming out around the first of June to help me put stuff in storage and then to go back home with me after finals.

But yeah. I miss the little things. Having my own bed to sleep in. Cappaccino blasts. My cat. My mom and dad. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, right?

And then there's everything going on here. Things are back to normal for the most part. Or as normal as one can expect in college. I don't know. Maybe I'm more tolerant than some people would be. I just kind of ... don't care anymore. I can't help it. I don't want to impose on the relationships of anyone else. I like seeing other people happy, and I want to finish out the year good. So I don't want to stir up any problems with these final weeks approaching. We've gotten along remarkably well for most roommates, I think. All of us have. It's amazing that the four of us even talk, since I know some people don't even really know their suitemates.

I get the room to myself completely next week for a couple of days over the weekend. It's nice, but at the same time ... there's always something a little comforting in waking up in the morning and knowing someone else is there. Especially when you get weird phone calls at 7am from some guy asking for a "Joe" even though you told him the first time around that they have the wrong number. It was a little disconcerting last week to have that happen, especially since the day before we watched the opening of Scream. I'm pretty sure I'm not much of a fan of being chopped into itty bitty pieces. I imagine it would hurt very much.

But wow. It really is hard to believe that dorm life ends, at least for me, in just a couple of weeks. I'd like to say I won't miss this place, but I know there's a small part of me that will. Just the whole ... stability of it all. It's really not much responsibility. You don't have to worry about bills or having enough money for food, books, clothes, and other essentials. That all changes next year, and a part of me still feels like I haven't grown up very much.

But I'm definitely feeling as if I'm in better shape this quarter than I was last. I got a B on my Sociology midterm. I got both papers back too: both were B+s. Which was weird. I was anticipating a higher grade on my Film paper and expecting a lower grade on my Art History paper. I've still got four pretty big papers coming up though, so these next few weeks are gonna keep me busy while most everyone else is starting on their summer breaks. You bitches, I envy you, just so you know. Enjoy it! At least my last finals are both on Wednesdays. Finally, somewhat of an early break.

AND THIS TUESDAY WE FIND OUT WHO MURDERED LILY KANE!
Anyone want to start placing their bets as to who it is? I have no clue, personally, but I'm gonna say momma Kane just becaue she's who I initially suspected.

I'm perfectly aware that I may be late on this, but ... I'm just too amused not to share my amusement with you all.

Under Pressure by the Used and My Chemical Rommance

The urge to sing "Ice Ice Baby" isn't so much there in the beginning anymore, which makes me sad.

I’ve actually been meaning to do this for a while now.

I'm in an odly generous mood. So you get free music. Enjoy.

These are songs I adore and love, but will probably never get around to adding to any monthly playlists because I always end up finding newer music to obsess over and these, sadly, get forgotten. But they are still good no less, and should be checked out.

Girlscout by Jack Off Jill
American Made by Jack Off Jill
My Sherona by Veruca Salt
Sonnet by the Verve
*Momentary Thing by Something Happens
*’97 Bonnie and Clyde by Tori Amos
Strange Little Girl by Tori Amos
Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper
21 Things I Want in a Lover by Alanis Morissette
Barrel of a Gun by Depeche Mode
**Superstar by Tegan and Sarah
Viva Forever by the Spice Girls
***Imagine by A Perfect Circle
****I Love You by The Dandy Warhols
Heaven’s a Lie by Lacuna Coil
Kashmir by Led Zeppilin
Power Slut Kiss by IDC

*The song that played during Veronica and Logan’s first kiss. Though it’s perfectly good all on its own.
**One of many of my current guilty pleasures. It may make June’s playlist regardless.
***Another guilty pleasure. Hot damn, this cover is so fucking awesome.
****I. Am. Obsessed. Such a great song.
