December 2007


So I have a life so I’m not going to spend countless amounts of time coming up with playlists to post about but I will do the quick easy and painless post of just listing my top 5 songs and not do any hardcore descriptions of them.

Linkin Park – Papercut

Hawthorne Heights – Language Lesson (Five Words or Less)

Bullet for my Valentine – Tears Don’t Fall

Anberlin – Paperthin Hyme

Mercy Me – I Can Only Imagine

Those are my fab five.  Papercut is first and the rest are all just kinda bunched together in the top five.

So today it was like being back in the good ol’ days.  I got home from running errands at about 3 or so.  Watched 300, Elf, Harry Potter adn the Prisoner of Azkaban, and then The Last Samuri.  That lasted me until about 2 in the morning.  While watching these movies I’ve been working on my art final project.  Doing another recreation of a picture with magazine clippings.  Things time I”m doing Adrian Peterson tearing it up against the Chargers.  It’s going slow but that’s cuz i’ve mainly just been cutting pieces up.  Once I can start putting them down it’ll go much faster I think.

I have 2 finals, the final project in art on monday and my essay test on wednesday for Global Cities.  The global cities test will probably be brutal.  I really studied for the midterm and managed to pull of a D+ about.   IT was brutal.  Level 1000 class which the TA seems to have forgotten about.  It feels like i’m in a 3000 English class which sucks because i’m not a fan of written English when I’m the one writing it.   When I have to write english it’s like trying to get Tom to come out of the closet.  It just isn’t happening so my papers tend to suffer.  If only Tom would come out of the closet!  It is sooo frustrating.  It’s like the words are in my head but hiding, like in a closet, and I can’t get them to come out.  Sometimes it seems like they come out of that closet, but then they run right back in and shut the door and than it’s a lost cause.  It gets really bad when the english I try to write starts believing in Scientology.  That’s when I quit writing because I can’t handle gay scientology english.  It’s just too much for one man to handle.  Maybe if i had a drink or two it would make it easier to take (that’s what he said) but so far I really really don’t like alcohol unless it’s really fruity.  Pretty much any type of mixed drink tastes like rubbing alcohol and any type of beer is just gross which makes me not want to drink at all.  I drink beverages because they taste good.  Alcohol doesn’t so there is no point for me to drink it…plus it is expensive.  I could really butter it up and put a ton of pop with a little vodka or anything else, but i would still be able to taste the rubbing alcohol taste which then makes it worse than just plain pop defeating the entire purpose of why I am drinking it in the first place.

This post is funny.

Can’t wait to see everybody over break!!

Last night, wed-nes-day night, was Cinterklaus night. It’s like our Santa Claus but only in Holland it’s Cinterklaus. For this we each bought each other gifts and we wrote everybody a poem to go along with our gift. When we go to bed we leave our shoes outside our doors and Cinterklaus fills them up with stuff.

After Dan picked me up from class at 9:15 PM we quickly drove to Target so I could buy gifts for people. I had written two poems the night before and the next two during my last class. After buying everything we went home, wrapped them, ate pizza the girls had ordered, and then began the celebration!

Things that i recieved:
From Dan – 300, Katie-new wallet, Brenna-raptor bandito t-shirt, Sarah- boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and a cereal bowl. Cinterklaus during the night left me a transformers tree ornament.

I completely neglected to set my alarm, i changed the time, but forgot to set my alarm so I never got up to give my person their Cinterklaus gift. Luckily, I had Dan so that was super easy.

It was kind of awkward because Tuesday I asked Katie when we were going to exchange names and she told me that we already had and that I was present and partook in that event. After mentioning that I remembered, oh yeah we did. It still didn’t really help me remember exactly who I had.

Overall it was a super fun time with lots and lots of laughs. We are still going to have a more formal Christmas party later on but this was the super fun gift exchange one.

I bought everyone movies:
Brenna-Bill Cosby Himself (stand up comedy)
Katie-Robin Hood Men in Tights
Dan – Anchorman
Sarah – owl ornament and Bewitched
