lilyofshalott: (Only Time (Erik))

Surprisingly, my O.Chem final this morning wasn't as evil as I thought 'twould be--'twas difficult, yes, but I think I did pretty well (though I might have confused some of the mechanisms) and I may have even gotten part of the bonus question right! :D I went to lunch with Dana, Erin, and Kelly afterwards . . . and then proceeded to do absolutely nothing. Seriously. Since lunch, I've read maybe 3 chapters of The Scarlet Letter, wandered around on LJ (ooh, I should make some icons--I *still* haven't finished my songset yet), read a bunch of fanfiction, and made yet another paper snowflake to add to my wall (since Selinsgrove has no snow yet *is sad*)--which makes a total of 3. And it's not that I'm slacking off, either--I don't have anything to do. I can't go home until Thursday because of my US History final in the morning, but I don't have anything at all on Wednesday and 'tis impossible to study for my History final because 'tis all analysis . . . As promised, here is weekend-ness:

I *heart* my friends . . . but not O. Chem )



And now I'm all caught up--yay :)

I know, I know, I haven't updated in forever . . .

Last Sunday (the 5th) was the SU Chorale/Choir/Orchestra Christmas Masterworks concert--the first half was the Christmas portion of Handel's Messiah and the second half was various Chritmas songs . . . The Hallelujah Chorus was amazing!

Tuesday was the Candlelight Service--I went with Dana and Nate . . . the whole service was beautiful and Chaplain used a wonderful metaphor about how the fish in his pond can't understand what he does for them and wouldn't be able to understand what he was unless he became a fish, just like how God had to become human before people could understand what he does for us . . . Choir and Chorale sang a few more songs (they'd opened up singing surrounding the congregation) and "Silent Night" with everyone on the stage and in the congregation holding their candles was just gorgeous . . . oh, I don't know if any of you get WVIA or not (it's a PBS station), but if you do, the Candlelight Service will be aired on Christmas Eve and the Masterworks concert will be aired on Christmas Day.

Nothing much happened between Tuesday and Friday (except I found out I hadn't totally failed my O.Chem exam on Monday--I didn't do as well as I wanted, but I did better than I thought--at least I didn't fail), but 'tis late (and I should probably do more O.Chem study-age--I'm taking a break right now), so I shall write about this weekend tommorow--I'll use it as a study break . . .

I leave you with these parting thoughts: pickles conduct electricity without being burnt to a crisp, a bag of blood will light a light bulb, and pig fetuses floating in formaldehyde (yay alliteration!!) do not make good office-warming gifts . . . (I *heart* CSI--Dana's gotten me addicted)

Wow . . . I haven't updated in forever (at least a week, methinks). Since it's late (and I'm tired), though, I'll just write a brief snippet . . .

*I have gotten my roomie addicted to fanfiction (CSI fics, specifically)! I introduced her to the music of Josh Groban, she introduced me to the awesome-ness that is CSI, and I've introduced her to the ever-addicting fanfiction.net--now she says it's her turn again . . .
*The Masterworks concert and Candlelight service were lovely and both will be broadcast on WVIA on Christmas Day and Eve, respectively
*I've semi-finished my colourbar--the picture is done, but I don't know how to link it and turn it into an actual colourbar . . .
*we have decided 'twould be nifty to make "CSI: Seibert"--the first episode shall be called "Let Them Eat Cake" and will be about Kelly's missing half a cake (I really think we should do this--'twould be so much fun!)
*Dana, Erin, Kelly, and I watched 6 episodes of CSI this evening (Dana has the first three seasons on DVD) :)
*I really need to do a *ton* of O.Chem study-age tomorrow :\

(I really want to get a paid account now, so I can have more icons and finally use my spiggy mood set

lilyofshalott: (So my fantasy)

I'm finally updating--shocking, I know. This won't be a full update, however, since I have to write my notecards for my Genetics group presentation at 10 . . . I'm soooo glad 'tis Friday. I'll probably write an actually update later today, so I shall leave you with a list of some happy things for today . . .

The moments of happiness . . . )

Did I mention I'm working on an icon song-set? I can't remember if I did in a previous entry or not . . . anyways, I'm about halfway through (well, maybe a bit less) and I really like how it's coming along :) I shall post it in my icon journal, [livejournal.com profile] daydream_icons, when I've finished

lilyofshalott: (Default)

Hmm . . . I think I shall update . . .

Friday morning at around 1:00, Richie IMed me saying he was hungry and wanted to get something to eat . . . so he, Sarah, Em, and I went to the Four Seasons diner (its open 24/7) and they got breakfast foods--I got back to my dorm at around 2ish! O.Chem was bad because Blackboard *still* wasn't up, so I couldn't print off the lecture notes beforehand . . . we did more practice problems in Genetics--it took Jess and I about an hour to do one of them (it had several parts), but luckily we're going to finish them up on Monday in class, so we didn't have to do them for homework . . . after Gospel Choir, we went to the "Breathe Step Stomp" step show sponsored by BSU (yay for aliteration!)--'twas rather good, although the music started to get to me after awhile because it was *really* loud (even though we were in the balcony) . . . Erin, Dana, and I watched a few episodes of CSI (Dana has the first and second seasons on DVD) and I caught a rather ironic (yet nifty) image in the final frame of the "Alter Boys" episode . . . then Danielle joined us and we watched The Land Before Time (the first one!) in the Atrium--we were shocked as we watched the credits and learned that the movie was a Spielburg/Lucas collaboration and James Horner did the score (with Diana Ross singing the end title)!

Hardly anything to write about Saturday, since we didn't do anything--I literally did nothing but O.Chem. (and procrastination) the entire day

Today we (the SU Gospel Choir) sang at St. Paul's United Church of Christ (Chris' church)--our Chaplin preached, too, so it was as though SU was taking over the service . . . hehe. We our songs went quite well, which was a very happy thing :) Erin and I didn't really want to go to the caf for lunch, so we made macaroni and cheese, and Dana joined us for lunch . . . I alternatively did O.Chem. and procrastinated . . . and that's about it for this weekend . . .

A Procrastination Acrostic )



I really want to get my paid account (for my many icons and nifty Sarah mood set), but I think I have to pay for my FoJG account this time and I still need to buy Christmas presents (after I figure out what I'm getting everyone) . . . Speaking about Christmas presents, Rehta, Allegra, and Sara (wow, your names all end in "a"!)--could I have your addresses? I'd love to send you cards over the holidays :) So you don't have to worry about random people seeing your address, you can IM me at peachy_bean16@yahoo.com :D

lilyofshalott: (So my fantasy)

Yes, I am talking about myself in the subject--yay for speaking in third person and paraphrasing Shakespeare in the same sentence *pats self on back* Now I shall write about the weekend thus far:

a rather random weekend )



(and the melancholy-ness is probably from watching the movie yesterday . . . on a happier note, there's a lunar eclipse on Wed :D Guess how I'm going to spend that evening? I'll actually have a reason for staring at the moon . . . hehe)

[Does my lack of paragraph-ness bother anyone? Because I'll try to split up my entries better if it does.]

Yay--I might be living in Seibert next year! Even though the SAVE suite filled up, Steph said she still might be able to get me a room there :D

I taped AI because 'twas on while Sarah and I were working on our chem lab and watched it after SAVE . . . YAY!! Red-haired suit John made it to the next round---that makes me happy :) And I love the song he sang last night--"Always a Woman" by Billy Joel . . . if he comes out with a CD, I think I'll buy it . . . but I also still have to buy all those soundtracks . . . haha

hey Chris, the song that's on my Launch station right now is called "Tin Man" (by America) . . . ;)

Watching movies is how my friends and I generally spend our time here at SU. This weekend, though, we actually watched THREE movies: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on Fri and Fantasia and Blazing Saddles on Sat. They’re actually all connected, too: Willy Wonka and Fantasia are fantasies, and Willy Wonka and Blazing Saddles both star Gene Wilder . . .

 

Our movie watching on Fri was very fun: Chris, Dana, Erin, and I (and then Sara) watched the 2 episodes of American Idol we’d taped over the week and commented on the various contestants. Dana, Erin, and I were pleased that our two favourites were still in the running: the “pen guy” and the “red-haired guy” (who was wearing a suit . . .), who are incidentally both named John---we semi-contemplated starting a “John Fan Club”. . .

 

Dana, Sara, and I watched Willy Wonka, with Dana and I singing along with all the songs (including the Oompa Loompas) . . . I love the “Pure Imagination” song J . . . I think I have to add more quotes from the movie to my buddy profile . . . I wonder if there’s a website that has all the works Willy Wonka quotes in the film---the only one I know (besides the obvious ones like Romeo and Juliet) is “we are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams”, from Arthur O' Shaughnessy's “Ode” (lovely poem)----wait, I take that back: “A thing of beauty is never wasted” (or however the quote goes) is from either Byron, Keats, or Browning (I think) and “water, water everywhere/ nor any drop to drink” is from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (to finish the quatrain, “water, water everywhere/ and all the boards did shrink”) . . . . I also realised something---Willy Wonka seems so lonely, especially during the “Pure Imagination” scene … … ok, I’m going to stop rambling now . . . (or I can call it stream-of-consciousness---yay for Woolf!)
