shadydave: (poisoning pigeons in the park)
So, during the copious free time that accounts for much of my working day, I stumbled across the following articles on the reading habits of young wimmins, which set me a-ponderin' (and apparently turned me into a grizzled old prospector).

An explanation of the Twilight phenomenon, complete with gender faily discussion of the reading habits of teenage girls )

Less gender faily discussion of the reading habits of teenage girls )

However, the most important thing about these articles is, of course, how they relate to MY reading habits. :D Read more... )
shadydave: (Do not set yourself on fire)
Not to mock your pain or anything, but I'm kind of amused that my friends list is primarily tearful farewells to the college life. (That and Doctor Who newsletters, because I am that cool). It hasn't really hit me yet, although this may be partially due to the fact that I've spent most of the last week sleeping on account of bronchitis.

However, in solidarity, I must admit I will miss school, especially being able to harass my awesome friends at will. I already miss being able to walk everywhere -- cabin fever + high gas prices = sadness. I'll even miss classes, because aside from actually handing in assignments, I love learning stuff and discussing it with escalating vocabulary wars.

There's also the fact that I need to figure out something to do with my life, or at least figure out a sufficiently prestigious delaying tactic so people will stop singing "What do you do with a BA in English?" at me. I don't mind entering the real world, but it would be nice if I had a clue for what to do in it. Anyways, at least I have the summer to look for something while I'm administrative assisting (or staff supporting, which is what my badge says) at good ole' UDHS.

In conclusion: I'm sure Mick Jagger speaks for all of us when he sang "I see my red door and it has been painted black." Because nothing says woe like Rolling Stones emo, and nothing can more elegantly express the despair of the ever-changing cycle of life than rhyming "black" with "black". Forty times.

2007 In Review

Well, 2007 in review via first lines in my LJ entries, anyway:

Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share... )

So, according to this, I did a lot of schoolwork, went to England, was screwed by registration YET AGAIN, had to get a new iPod, was harassed by my sister, visited a LLAMA FARM, and failed to update my LJ. That's pretty accurate, actually. Although I feel it does not do justice to all the time I spent watching TV and/or contemplating Chr├ętien de Troyes, my awesome friends, or my complete failure to figure out my future. So just imagine that I talked about those things in the first line of my first LJ entry every month too.

2008 In Review:

I spent most of 2008 either asleep or on the Internet while my brother sat on the couch and played video games. However, in 2008 I did go out for margaritas with Mal at Chili's, which was pretty awesome.

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2005 (not including memes of course). Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".

February: my friends are trying to kill me with drama.

March: i would just like to report that i have kicked my exams' asses.

April: stolen from el kiro.

May: apparently, my school has caught on fire.

June: reading discipline files was actually almost entertaining today.

July: oh yeah. i'm so hardcore, it's scary.

August: we were supposed to leave to go camping today, but apparently it is too late (though of course no one bothered to tell me).

September: So! In honor of having finally started my paper, I present to you the awards show for all the bizarre Arthurian stuff I saw.

October: just for the record, i hate watermelon.

November: the floor tiles of reves

December: so, who wants a bust of thomas jefferson for christmas?

In Conclusion: My year was really random.
