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....

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 love you, my dear city. But I do not appreciate the 41.1°C (105.98 ºF) that you are thrusting on me. I'm getting a cold from being under the AC all day and there's only so much time I can swim before I get bored. Get you act together, ok? I love you, just not so much when you are so hot.

EDIT: It's 43.6 ºC = 110.48 ºF 

Can it rain already?

 I don't know if I'm alone in this (I'm sure I am not) but I find kiddie beauty pageants incredibly creepy. Why do parents do that to children?

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?  

Dilemma

I'm thinking of getting a new tattoo and I can't decide what I want. I have two options and both of them are very dear to me. I want to get a ribbon like phrase around my ankle (I'm thinking the left one, both to cover my scar and because it's the heart's side) and I can't make my mind which motto would be best. 

On one hand, I want 'Dieu et Mon Droit' because it was Henry V's motto and I study history after falling in love with Kenneth Branagh's film. On the other, I have always loved 'Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne' (Anne Boleyn's motto) because it clicks with my way of thinking. In addition, she was Elizabeth I's mother, after all and I worship Elizabeth. 

I'm stuck! Both of them represent something really close to my heart... Yeah, I know, it's not a real problem but I hate being unsure.

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 caved me and bought 15 userpics. I'm a weak, weak person.

Today, 156 years ago, Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin. There's nothing I can say about him that have not been said over and over again. I'll just add that The Picture of Dorian Gray is still my favourite book 12 years after reading it for the first time and one of those works that changed my life. 

I tip my hat in this genius' honour. 




PS: My England shimeji decided to get naked while I was writing this. Maybe Arthur's way to pay homage?
lovelycudy: (Default)
 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!

The which philosophy suits your personality? Test
Written by Draebs2


Existentialism, by Sartre
36% Nature, 63% Rationalism, 35% Religion, 70% Freedom, 57% Individuality, 46% Power and 36% Uncertainty!
You scored highest on the variable Freedom. Freedom was an important part of Sartre's philosophy.

Jean-Paul Sartre, 1905 – 1980, France.
Sartre does not believe in unknowable or underlying truths or meanings. The only thing we can be sure of is that we die. Which gives us an incredible amount of freedom, to choose what we want to believe and how we want to live our lives. But if there's no meaning and we die anyway, this all seems futile. Kind of depressing, but it should make you live your life to the fullest!

So, guys, I'm booooooooooooooooooored. Well, not really bored but I don't want to do what I'm supposed to do and what's better to kill time than quizzes? 3D puzzles!!!! I have this lovely plaster Gothic tower I have to finish but I don't have any glue D: So, when puzzles fail what's better than quizzes? 

So, I found some great quizzes and I want to share them with you, guys! If you like them, let me know what results you get, ok?


The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test

Written by donathos

Outcast Genius
87 % Nerd, 87% Geek, 52% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Congratulations!

Your Analysis (Vertical line = Average)



You scored 87% on nerdiness, higher than 96% of your peers.



You scored 87% on geekosity, higher than 99% of your peers.



You scored 52% on dork points, higher than 88% of your peers.

All I can say is AWESOME!!!! I'm all flattered <3

 I wonder why my History of Argentina II teacher thought that listening to "Rule Britannia" was related to his subject. Or to the war against Paraguay at all. The guy was on the Navy so maybe... nah, I have nothing. At least I have fun with my friend singing along.
