Don't get me wrong; poetry is awesome. However trying to decode dense Whitman metaphor without any guide as to paper topic or length is not awesome. Also not awesome is him saying that it must be perfect.

On another note, I supreme LOLed while procrastinating:

...especially at 3:12. And I turn into a puddle of goo due to the complete adorkability and sexyness of Mr. Bowie.

After nearly two years of Nolwenn, I decided to change the layout on my lj today. My internet was freaking out, so it took forever for everything to load, but I'm pretty happy with what I went with. I've also began tagging my entries, but since this journal goes back to May 2004, it's going to be rough going back and adding tags to all those entries (plus, coming up with tags is hard because I want to use things I can use later in order to categorize things, but I feel like my entries are either completely random ramblings or too diverse to be categorized).

My other project has been making Avatar icons and formalizing a wardrobe and a really cheesy background story for my pirate, Edie. I've already come up with some pretty cliché crazy stuff, and hopefully I'll get the rest of her wardrobe done by the end of the week. I really love designing clothes and I think after I get everything established, I'm going to use her to work on more dynamic poses and stuff like that.

Also after nearly two years, I finally got Heathen by Bowie. I like what I've heard, but I need to listen to it a few more times. Speaking of music, I bought the Juno soundtrack last night, and I really enjoy it. It's very laid back and folksy, which isn't normally my music, but I did it nonetheless.

So, college is so like high school, and also so incredibly unlike anything else in my life. I mean, I still have lots of free time, and I think I have even more than marching band season, so the ULTIMATE STUDYING hasn't really set in. I do have to read a lot, and I am definitely not succumbing to Sparknotes ever in college. Despite the reading and stuff, I watched the entire series of Friends. All ten seasons, save one disk in season 8. Also, I have rewatched nearly all of Avatar. More on Avatar later.

My French class alternates between mind-numbingly dull and ridiculously tedious, which makes me crazy. Same with my computer class. My political science class is awesome x a bazillion. It makes me think and read and I'm learning the most in this class. My professor is ultimately brilliant and really and my mentor. I talked to him on Friday about next semester's schedule and since every class I need/want to take in the afternoon, I'm going to be taking a 3000-level class. But the assistant Provost and my mentor believe in me, so I'm going to go for it. It's either going to be a class about Shakespeare or Myths Across Religions.

So, Avatar. I'm so excited about this season. The first three episodes have been made of AWESOME, but I foresee way more awesome in the future. I love all of the Katara/Aang stuff, especially teh love from Katara's side. But I NEED more Toph and her sarcasm and her funny with Sokka. So, in conclusion, Fridays can't come fast enough.

I saw Across the Universe on Wednesday, and I loved it. I've been a Beatles fan as long as I can remember, so it took all of my restraint to keep from singing along. I did mouth along, however. I also love rackin' out to the soundtrack. My only complaint was that the story was subservient to the music, but whatever, it's the Beatles.

Movies/TV shows I've watched/rewatched since coming to college: Friends entire series, Most of Avatar, some of Arrested Development season 2, Pride and Prejudice, Across the Universe, Death at a Funeral (So funny! I love Alan Tudyk and Matthew MacFadyen), Serenity, The Music Man, Victor/Victoria, Mulan, Anastasia, New Labyrinth DVD, and Clueless. I've also started watching Big Shots, and I'm continuing to watch Ugly Betty. But Ugly Betty is frustrating, 'cause I don't like Henry, but whatever.

Books I've read/reread: Good Omens, Stardust, Pride and Prejudice, Lost in Austen (A choose your own adventure based on Pride and Prejudice), and The Marquise of O-.

Random stuff:

-I think I've become a better typist
-David Bowie on Spongebob? WTF?
-I'm posting art again on deviantart, so go see it. I've been drawing/coloring Katara a lot lately.
-I seem of always start my entries with "So".
-My phone suffered severe casualties in the Great Biking Accident of '07. I just got my new phone and I have to get numbers again. :( Also, my forearms got destroyed and I'm going to scar. :( + :(

Whoo. That's a lot. I'm going to try to write here more often now.
