Random musings since my brain is not in a place where I can write out full paragraphs and stuff.
-I love my high school. I love going back to visit. Especially since so many of my friends there are younger than me, and thus, still there. But I'm glad it's over, and that I'm in college now.
-My Disney Pandora channel is giving me less and less actual Disney. First it was all the songs from Disney movies that I liked... and then it became covers of those songs by other people, which wasn't ideal, but wasn't bad... and then it was Glee which I couldn't dislike, but wasn't quite what I was going for... but now, getting an actual Disney song is significantly rarer. And that's not cool. I'm considering deleting the channel and just starting over with it again. Because... I have not had a Disney song for the past, like, seven songs. (I'm listening to it now, if that wasn't already obvious.)
-Someone truly awesome made marshmallows, and gave me a bit of them. They were amazing and Earl Grey flavored and I loved them. The only thing about them that makes me at all sad is that they are gone now, and I no longer have any. But they were still really super cool. :D
-I recently got an idea for a new stand-up sketch that I think could be really good if I can just refine it some. And by some, I mean a lot. But it's a really good idea, and I really wanna work on it.
-I absolutely adore my HTP friends. Some of us went out to see Julie Taymor's film adaptation of The Tempest, and it was very much made of happy. It's the trippiest Shakespeare that I've ever seen. But oh my god, so good. And then I saw it with some of my favorite people ever, and it just was very much happy tiemz, and I love all of you. (Yay being vague with names and identities on the internet!) <3
-In fact, in general, I have been getting a lot of love recently. An almost disproportionate amount of love, but... I'm feeling very happy in general with life right about now. I love my friends, especially now that I have friends who respect me and show me their affection, I love the holiday season which helps bring all of this out in all of us, and I love all of you. All of you. You all help make me this kind of happy, and it's just wonderful and... I don't really have words for it in my slightly brain-dead state, but... I'm very happy, and it's you guys who bring me to this level of awesome. :)
-Whoa. I guess I can do paragraphs a little more than I thought I could.
-Walking will be happening a lot tomorrow as I walk from my house all the way down to the fashion district and back to get holiday presents... and I don't want to pay train fare. But it's good for me! It's good exercise! ...Besides, it also means that if I don't spend all of the money I've allotted for holiday presents, that is ample excuse for me to let myself go to Jamba Juice with the rest of my money and get their limited edition Berried 'n Chocolate flavor smoothie, which is just so good and I love it.
-Equals Three is awesome. It's a web show on YouTube, and... yeah, just YouTube search Equals Three and watch it. It's really funny. And should you care, I can post links to my favorite episodes from it. I mean, I have literally cried from laughing because of it. ...Also, the guy who does it lives in New York, just down the block from a friend of mine, so you just know that it's awesome.
-I've finally seen all of Firefly. slkdfjdslkjfsd IT'S SO GOOD. I really wanna get the DVDs now too... but yes. It's just such a good series. And Nathan Fillion is a beautiful, A+ human being.
...I've gotten to the point where I'm just rambling about the first thing that comes to mind. Also, Go The Distance just came up on my Pandora channel, so I'll stop now.
But yes. TL;DR... I love you all, you guys. You make me very happy. All of you. <3
So you know that feeling when you have something that you really want to talk about... but you just can't? Yeah. That feeling. I have it now. I mean, I thought sharing was caring! But, as it turns out, if I were to share, it would be the exact opposite of caring. ...E-Except, I really wanna talk about it. GAH SUCH A CONDUNDRUM. Well, not really, because I know I'm not going to share. But it knaws at me from the inside.
Your local, neighborhood Arthoniel is growing up and doing things and being mature. Ain't that somethin'? Never thought it'd start to actually happen to me. But there you go.
In other news, lskdjfdlskjfl FIREFLY. I'm one episode away from having seen the entire series. It's so good. And Fox is a collective bitch. I'm just sayin'.
...I mean, seriously, how does a nerd friend group get drama?? Like, just... how does that happen?? And the thing is... I can't really say I mind. It's been so long since I've had any real drama in my life... so long as no one is getting hurt, it's not so bad, right?
Some of my friends and I had a movie night. Two nights in a row. For the past two nights... the two before this one, I mean. It was nice. We watched Disney movies! Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Mulan... and then we also watched Happy Feet and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Good times were had by all. And DISNEY.
I absolutely love my piano keyboard. I still don't know what to name her. But I love her.
I go home for winter break on Tuesday, by the way. And for the first time... I'm not 100% certain that I quite want to go. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am SO RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED to go home to New York so I can be in my city again, and for an extended length of time and everything. I miss my city SO, SO much, and I can't wait to be back. I can wait to go home and be with my family again. Besides which... I'm gonna miss my friends here. A lot. A lot. I keep telling them to visit the City over the break and everything, but... gah. I'm gonna miss Brandeis over the break.
Anyway, I gotta shut up and go and respond to my Para tags. It's been a day now and I haven't done it, and... while I have excellent reasons for not having been there... I still need to go do that. So I will. Fun times abound! :D
So, as it turns out, I do remember how to like someone in real life. And that is all I will say on the matter. :D
I'm getting into Firefly now. I knew it was only a matter of time after I saw how many people around me absolutely adore it, but... it's finally happening. And... sdlfjsldifjsdl OH MY GOD IT'S SO GOOD. Why did Fox cancel it? Oh, right, because they're a collective bitch. But... IT'S SO GOOD. 8D
...And now I totally agree with that XKCD comic, and would pay good money to go see the action film "River Tam Kills Everybody." XD
Tomorrow I have to finish up a paper on magical thinking. That would be funny if I were kidding. I'm already not doing an extra credit assignment for Spanish because I tried to write it, but... ugh. I'm not... I'm getting sleep tonight. I just am.
OH OH OH I DIDN'T TELL YOU GUYS. I got a keyboard for Chanukka recently!! Like, a piano keyboard! She is beautiful and I love her and I'm still not sure what to name her, but... sldfkjsdlkj I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER SO MUCH. (Yes, my keyboard is a she.)
Hot tea is my savior. Especially as I think I'm getting sick. And sore throats are literally the bane of my existance. Anything else I can deal with. Sore throats... gah, I hate them. A lot.
Finally, I don't care how much I've raved about it before... but slkfjdslf THE ROMEO X JULIET SOUNDTRACK IS SO, SO GORGEOUS. 8D
