I just came back from my first Pilates class and I think my legs and arms fell off. But I liked it. I think? IDK, it's been centuries since I last had some form of physical exercise that is PG rated and I'm still adjusting to this new ~healthy, lifestyle I'm trying. Now I guess I have to quit smoking....

I'm not a Christian myself but I know some of you guys are, so happy Easter! Did you have chocolate eggs? And while I'm being religion oriented, happy Passover (is it "happy" well used?) to all of you who are Jewish.

I'm under the impression I've offended/messed up somehow, sorry

My dog threw my laptop charger and kind of killed it, so I only have as much Interner access as I can get from my dad's laptop. Which is almost nothing. I'm taking the poor charger to the service guy to see if it can be salvaged and if not, I have to buy a new one because I honestly have 2000 things to do and all of them need lenghty Internet connection. 

FML

On happier news, I'm working (ad honorem, but still) in a Medieval History Journal! It's all kinds of awesome and I have to write a review ♥

All is well

Weeks after its predecessor sad demise, my dad finally bought a new electric kettle, and now I'm a happier, less grumpy person. No more waiting until water is ready! Yes, I know #first world problems, but when you are so used to something, having to change your habits it's a pain in the ass. 

On sadder news, my cousins and aunt are still living here and I'm close to murder someone. I think that's why dad bought the kettle, to keep me happy somehow. 

Classes start the 14th and I'm incredibly happy that, for the first time in 23 years, I won't spend my birthday in classroom. Yay me!

I just got home from my final on American (the continent) history. I did great! Yay me!!! Thank you so much to everyone who helped me with the Canadian October Crisis, it as really helpful and allowed me to steer my presentation exactly in the direction I wanted. I love it when you can use your exposition to answer what you know and avoid what you don't (like, 90% of the course) . Next exam (12/16) is for Theology III and that's it! I'll be a free bitch for two months!

Sorry, I'm super excited and happy. And not only because of my exams but also because I bought some awesome books in Amazon.co.uk and they have already been dispatched. According to the site they'll be delivered the 24th but I seriously doubt DHL works on Christmas. Unless those German guys are really serious when it comes to business, lol.

I had to think quite a lot about buying these books (the exchange rate between pounds and pesos is dreadful for us) but after all I've been trough I think I deserve something to make me happy, right? Anyway, see my new babies:
  • A Great and Terrible King: Edward I and the Forging of Britain by Marc Morris
  • The Perfect King: The Life of Edward III, Father of the English Nation by Ian Mortimer
  • The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England: A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century by Ian Mortimer
  • Agincourt: The King, the Campaign, the Battle by Juliet Barker

Has anyone read them? Ok, so I'll stop babbling right now, I'm sorry to be so boring. 

Do tell me, any recent purchase that made you happy?

To everyone who celebrates it, Happy Halloween! I hope you get to go to lots of parties, dress up and get drunk. 


Does anyone know the artist?

 I apologise for my delay in the comment fic and holding hands meme. Life and college are kicking my ass viciously. I'm sorry.

The Canadian government has been streaming the Aurora Borealis lights in this site. It's quite stunning. The camera is off right now, but it'll be back after dusk.

 A British guy paid another dude $1mn to run naked in front of Obama. My first thought? Damn! That would be a great Hetalia fic!!

What is my life, I don't even?

Pain

 My left hand is all swollen and I have that awful ball like thing in one of my fingers and I hate my freaking life. Why can't a doc simply tell me what's wrong and which drug fixes it? Eh? Am I asking too much? They send a dog to space, damn it, I'm sure someone can fix my defective hand!

Ugh

Sorry for the rant, but it's painful and annoying and "this is common between pianists" is hardly and acceptable diagnosis! I don't even play the piano!

I just got home and I have to say that I'm exhausted.

Today started at 6:30 after I only got 3 hours of sleep. That sucks, obviously, but it's not teh first time I go to classes barely lucid. The problem is that on Monday I have the most ghastly classes you can ever imagine. All of them are so form or another of bad, bad psychobabble about babies and their feelings and stuff. How is that even related to History I have no idea. So, horrible classes today. That sucks but one can cope, right? At least I got to finish a new chapter of the book I'm reading. 

After eating a burger and destroying my diet (I know, I know! I suck) I had for hours because my dear boyfriend wanted a new jacket and just could not find the perfect one. At least I got a latte out of it. 

So, I got on the bus, put my headphones on and drifted to sleep. That bliss last ten minutes before I woke up because some guy was shaking me and telling me to get out of the bus. Half asleep, I noticed smoke and hysteria... a car was burning behind the bus and everyone was panicking because it could explode. There was a pregnant woman coughing and crying, a few old ladies almost fainting and I could not curse my life enough. Fortunately the car did not blow up and we ended back on the bus again (and thank God I was able to sit) and continue travelling. Needless to say I could not sleep again both because I breathed in a lot of that fucking smoke (and I really should quit smoking) and because the freaking old ladies could not stop commenting on what had happened. And sobbing. 

And then I got stuck in a traffic jam. There are 6 kilometres between my house and the bust stop where I took the bus. 6 fucking kilometres (that's less than 4 miles) and it took me two and a half hours. That's just wrong. 

Now I'm dirty, tired and my family decided not to have dinner just because. So I'm going to take a shower and stuff myself with cracker because there's nothing else I can eat without cooking.

I truly hate my life right now.


Quiz Time!

You Are a French Vanilla Jelly Bean



You are a down to earth person. You believe in who you are, and you don’t need to change.

You are very stable and steady. You think it’s foolish to fall for trends.



You don’t like to shake things up, but you aren’t boring either. You are deep and interesting and even exotic.

You are a popular person. People appreciate that you’re real with them.







Stanley Kubrick Should Direct the Movie of Your Life



You are a complex, nuanced person - the type of subject Kubrick would have spent years studying.

Your life has many interesting themes running through it, and you're no stranger to controversy.



You are a bit of a recluse at times. No one truly understands you.

You defy categories or stereotypes. You are influenced by many things, and it's hard to sum up who you are.







Your Brain is Conceptual



You can't help but look at the big picture. You're good at putting things together.

You think long term. You always have a vision for the future and an idea of how you want things to be.



You are a very intuitive person. Even though you are constantly thinking, it feels like answers just appear for you.

You enjoy a challenge, especially an intellectual one. You are constantly taking the initiative and pushing yourself.







You Are a Cat



You are agile and mysterious. You have you own way of navigating the world.

You enjoy exploring new ideas and places, but you also like to be able to retreat quickly.



You are a bit standoffish and aloof, but you aren't shy. In fact, you are brave and courageous.

Always resourceful and fearless, you can handle any situation. You are a survivor.

 I haz new books! Yay me. 

Last week, my dearest boyfriend gave me a book called Maria Theresia by Karl Tschuppik, even though I had to go and pick it up. Luckily, a book store nearby the one that had my book (and it is a lovely book, I highly recommend it) had something my father has been looking for four years. It's a book about Montoneros, a paramilitary group that existed here in the 70's. It was kind of expensive, but I couldn't let it pass, could I?

Well, today I added another baby to my collection. This time is The Habsburgs, by Andrew Wheatcroft. I had to travel a lot to get it, but it looks so worthy of it. 

By the way, today I've discovered that I love trains. At least when they are not crappy like the one that comes near my home. I had to take as train to the north of the city and I adored it. Maybe because the sky was greyish and about to rain (I love rain). Maybe because I could see all the lovely English houses besides the tracks (a everlasting reminder of the three things the English have done for us: free trade, meat market, the train) and even catch some of the horse race going on in the racecourse. I don't know. I'm pretty sure that the music I was listening to helped: This is England, and FST by [livejournal.com profile] otakufox23 , which I highly recommend. 

Anyhow, I'm exhausted. I think I'm going to take a nice, hot shower and then go and finish reading Highway Cloudbusting by [info]stardropdream.

God, I also should move my lazy derrière and finish typing that damn Epilogue!

 I'm sick. Because life hasn't been sucky enough, you know? Ughh, stupid cold and stupid allergies and stuff and stuff. 

I think my new layout it pretty nifty, though
lovelycudy: (Default)
For the first time in two weeks, I was able to sleep 8 hours. And boy, it's not the same than sleeping 3/4 hours every night. Now, I'm actually aware of my surroundings, and not in that awful bright, sharp, loud way that is so usual when a) you don't sleep enough, b) you're hangover. Ughh. 

I also got the charms I bought from[livejournal.com profile] kagami222 and they are lovely! So, if we exclude the fact that I had a blood extraction and my arm has a blueish spot on it, it's been an amazing Saturday :D

Which brings me to the fact that I need to sit my ass down and type the Epilogue for Die fünf Phasen der Liebe, which was done ages ago and I've been to busy to type and send to [livejournal.com profile] lezi . Lord, I suck. 

I don't have classes on Monday, so I expect I'll be able to finish everything I have to do (even that pesky little thing called college reading) and maybe start a new fic. I cross my fingers :D

I have the self control of a 3 years old kid. And two credit cards. That's a terrible, terrible combination. I've been craving to buy something Hetalia-related because I love buying stuff. I still want Austria's plushie, but $50 plus shipment it's just too much for me D: So, imagine my glee (sorry, couldn't resist it) when [livejournal.com profile] kagami222 posted these lovely charms at an affordable price! 

It's been a lifetime since I bought something from any fandom... I think the last thing was this (admitely kick ass) Phoenix action figure. Unless The Omen Collection counts, but I don't think so.

Anyhow, I'm happy with the cute charms (Austria, Prussia and America) and I feel like I'm 16 again, hunting cute things <3

 So, first day of the Aramaic course and I already have homework D: But I also learnt 4 letters and a few words, so I'm happy. And yes, I do realise I have no life. I just don't care anyomore
