"they'll talk to you about individual freedom, but they see a free individual, it's going to scare 'em."

So, I have to make up a writing portfolio.

I can't make decisions as to what I should include. 

If anyone has a few minutes and can tell me what sucks and what's good, I would really appreciate the time (and no, I don't get all diva emo bitch when you say such and such sucks, I totally get it, and appreciate the help.

Thanks, to anyone who can :)

the neighbour stressed me out, so im being silly til i stop feeling hateful.

No. An error did not occur. I tried this FOUR times, each video a minute long and facebook hates me. I'm already all pissed off and trying to be silly and make myself feel better, and facebook ruins it all.

Here is my compromise. (You need to know that my roommate has a boy who she's been seeing who she won't introduce me to, or even tell me his name. Maybe it's because I'm the kind of person that does things like this. Or maybe he has gills.

I think this may be the best thing ever. But, it's late and I'm stressed, which creates a bad case of the sillies.

Watch it.

cnn vs bbc

Don't get me wrong, the Obama inauguration is awesome, and important and stuff.

But seriously, CNN... Do we need a full fifteen minutes explanation on "the setup of the Jumbotrons"? Really?

For funsies, my roommate and I switched to BBC (which is my usual news source anyway.) and they were talking about Gaza and that whole mess.

But you know, the Jumbotrons are important. Don't worry there's another 6 hours of pre-inauguration goodness if you want to find out what kind of chocolate bar Obama likes best.

Don't worry, either, there's noone dying in the Middle East or Africa.

Well, noone that matters, I mean, they're not American, now are they?

new year's resolutions

... I know, I know, it's cliché.

First Goal. Veganism.

But I'm going to do it. My biggest one is the one I was flirting with, embracing, and have been pretty well following since the week after reading week. Veganism. I've decided January first, however, is d-day. (v-day?). No more cheatsies.

Not that I've done any hardcore cheatsies, really. (Whey powder in Ketchup chips, really.. cmon guys.)

You'd be surprised at the junk that has egg, milk or gelatin in it that you'd never expect. But anyway, my GOAL January 1st is to stick with it. Yep, I might cheat, but I'm making a dietary decision, not getting married, so bite me. (Plus, I have a hard time telling crotchety old Aunt Edna that no, dear, I can't eat your cookies. Sometimes you've got to pick your battles. We'll make this rule apply to starry eyed ladies older than 80 only, it does not apply to Subway.)

Second goal. Gym-ing.

Actually go to the damn gym that costs me an arm and a leg. I got the damn thing because I could go whenever, and they have unlimited yoga classes, which I was determined to go to three times weekly. I've gone tot he gym a buncha times (though not nearly enough), but I've only ever attended ONE yoga class. I suck.

Third goal. School.

I did okay this semester, but I could have done better. I really, really could have. I'm toying with the idea of doing all schoolwork at school, and staying at school til it's done on all assignments due less than a week away. I think my big thing is I get home and my time management blows. I have this shitty attitude of "It's due like, four days, from now. I can watch How I Met Your Mother for six hours straight instead of doing homework." This brings be to my fourth goal...

Fourth goal. Less wasted time.

I spend waay too much time using StumpleUpon, Facebook, Google Reader etc. Not to mention watching television. It's not that watching the new episode of the Office once a week is so bad, but I get into new shows and watch entire seasons in a day, accomplishing nothing else. It's disgusting.

Fifth and Final goal. Writing.

I don't write nearly as much as I used to and I need to get back into it. Whose quote this is escapes me right now, but someone awesome said that to be a good writer, you have to write. As in (and I'm slaughtering the quote) you really have to write a lot of words, whether they're good or well written or not, in order to be a good writer. I used to do this, scribble furiously in notebooks all the time (including one very memorable and very intoxicated time at the bowling alley..), now I rarely do, I barely even maintain this blog. But, I'm a-gonna. And, focus more on finishing and submitting things to journals/magazines etc.

So, I'm getting to that point in my classes where everything is now due.

Of course, I'm procrastinating, and I'm sure you want to too.

Here are a few sites that I found interesting in a "WOW! This is SO interesting that I MUST look at it and CANNOT work on my essay." kind of way.

(The pictures of me in weird contexts are from photo funia, and they're awesome. Don't judge me. The ones without my picture in them are from the random internet.)


man, thats neato. (the end is the best, so fast forward if you dont want to watch the whole thing)

this guy is too obsessed with shoes (again, the end is the best part)

this has many powers: distraction AND annoying all your roommates. ok, so it has two powers, but they;re awesome

lego kids, rejoice and quite your jobs! there is a career in lego, apparently.

Baby duck!

I'm a geek and I like things that are just plain neat

This is just a pic of a hedgehog cheese grater, but it's still effin' fabulous.
