Study Mode:ON

So, I successfully made it out of the stacks! I have to say, it was pretty terrifying. But, now all of my design projects are done!

'Tis now the season for exams. Now that projects are done and assignments largely over, it is now time to hunker down and study. So once more, I say farewell to the blog for the next few weeks (though this may turn out to be a huge lie again).

In other news:


Who thought this was a good idea? WHO?

We're doomed.

Lost in the stacks...

As I write this, I am sitting in the bottom floor of the Engineering and Sciences Library on campus. My intention when I journeyed here was to get a real, physical book (I know, shocking) in order to get some research done for a design project.

I ventured down and was immediately confronted by rows and rows of books. I knew the call number of the book I was looking for, but it was nowhere near the call numbers that I could see. I set off in the direction that looked most promising, yet did not appear to be getting closer to my goal. I nervously changed directions a few times and got hopelessly turned around.

Suddenly, the letters corresponding to my call number appeared in front of me. Rejoicing inside, I ventured into the row and found the ancient text I was searching for (published in 1955 don'cha know). I snatched up my prize and started to venture out. But, I cannot find the exit. I pass by a woman who is in at least her forties and fear starts to well up inside. What if that is me, in the future? Libraries are known to bend the space-time continuum, existing in L-space (Pratchett fans will know what I'm talking about).

I am now at a study desk and am nervously looking around for hints toward the exit. I don't have my charger for my computer, so if I never post again, you'll know where I still am.

I'm in the last week of classes and all my design projects are due! This being Easter weekend, it is natural to assume that I am putting my nose to the grindstone and powering through everything. Clearly this is a lie, since I'm posting to this blog right now. Which begs the question, what the HECK am I doing with my time?!?

The answer to that, my friend, is frittering away precious minutes watching two guys waste their college degrees on Youtube. I present BriTANick!

This is just one of their very funny videos. The fact that Swaim from cameos makes it even better. They are seriously awesome.

We're frolicking through the forest! And we shimmer!

Last Sunday, my roommate and I decided to rent New Moon. She wanted to since it was her favorite book out of the series. I wanted to in order to mock it (and my other roommate who equally hates on Twilight said it was hilarious). So, we sat down on the couch with some popcorn, timbits, and nibs and watched the fantastic fail that is The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

Whilst suffering from hysterical laughter, I figured it would be awesome to live-post on facebook my reactions to the movie. Here follows these posts verbatim, put into chronological order. Bolded lines were my main post and normal lines were comments on the preceding post.

Watching New Moon and live posting my reactions! 1/2 hour in: WHAT IS THIS MADNESS? Bella is a self destructive codependent mess who is also possiby schizo..

And her papercuts bleed the most.

And she has no sense of self-preservation. "I tripped over a twig! A TWIG I SAY! Now I will curl up in the fetal position and faint. And be rescued by a shirtless wolf."

Also, major kudos to her dad for putting up with her and her screaming during bad dreams

Bella and Edward kiss the most awkwardly. Taylor Lautner is buff. 'nuff said about that.

lol @awkward 2 friends competing for Bella's affections...their hands waiting for her to grasp them as they watch a terrible action movie

"what a marshmallow" as the white friend leaves, afraid of gore

and way to break up a tender moment, white kid.

who goes shirtless in the pouring rain? I mean, really, other than to gratuitously show off taylor lautner's abs?

yes bella, both of the men you liked in your life break up with you exactly the same way. Sucks to be you.

Jacob BURSTS OUT OF HIS CLOTHES!!! I AM HERCULES!!! Now what happens after he transforms back? And is...unclothed?

and she jumps off a cliff...without a spotter. Just to hear/see your vision of your lover. You are nuts.

And get buffeted by waves. You fail so much.

OMFG YOU FAIL. I won't spoil the movie, but there is so much fail.

No seatbelt? That's living life on the edge, right there.

SO AWKWARD. Way to kill the mood.

best quote: "I have never met anyone so prone to life threatening idiocy.

awww...poor Jacob. Bella, you fail to see any win in your life.

RUN BELLA! Save us from seeing Edward in his sparkly glory!

ewww....ewww. Please Edward put your shirt back on. Bring back Jacob. So much better.

migod these people can't act. It's like they're in constant physical pain.

even the other vamps are like "put on a shirt" to Edward.

we're frolicking through the forest! And we shimmer!

migod, Edward is such a creeper...creeping in Bella's room in the night. And Bella, way to forget that your dad would worry while you go gallivanting off to Italy.

And way to forget about Jacob, you jerk.

And you still kiss the most awkwardly.

"it would be nice to not want to kill you all the time"

as they vote whether or not to turn bella


And way to blow him off! He got buff and cut his hair for you! FAILLLLL

"you can't hurt each other without hurting me!" Yeah, we would actually be okay with that.

"marry me bella" and end. WHAT? Is that really the end? O_O

So yeah, that was a LOT of fun! Perhaps I'll make a twitter feed just to entertain people while I watch bad movies.
