Ah yes, the day no one was prepared for. When Good and Evil (scientists are convinced that a trick has been played on us and it's actually Evil and Evil) took human form to scourge humanity till the end of time. I, for one, rejoice!

Happy birthday, Twins!

Okay, so far I got lots of reading done for my Spanish linguistic class and also started practicing translations for the Spanish intermediate exam. It's still a while until I have to take it, but there will be enough papers and reports to do till then. I want to be prepared.

Yay for spring.*groans*

This semester is going to kill me. Three presentations (One in Spanish, eek!), three papers, and an intermediate exam in Spanish waiting directly at the end of the semester.

Additionally, I hate the first week of semester. There's always so much to do and so many coronaries to survive whenever the professors tell you what work you got to in order to get a grade. Or that yes, you will ALSO have to do all the work which the people who want a grade have to do although you don't need one. It should soon settle into a steady working rythm though, which will then allow me more time for LJ again. Only one or two more Why Me Breakdowns or so and we're good.

One the upside, the weather ROCKS right now! It's actually fun to drive to uni by bike!

I'm bored. I like movies.


A meme.

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.
6. Two quotes are from German movies, translated into English.

Under the cutCollapse )

Alas! I have just watched the last episode of Dark Angel.

My thoughtsCollapse )

But what now? No more Dark Angel, NCIS on a personal hiatus ... TV Land, do not abandon me!

Everyone knows this picture, right? Its history?

Or this one's:

Titel oder Beschreibung

Yesterday, a friend of mine and I were discussing historical events of which a moment so poignant, so descriptive of what occured has been captured that it actually fulfills this (admittedly worn-out) saying "a picture says more than thousand words". Those photographs become a symbol, the pavlovian first thought one has when speaking of the event it is connected with.

It's truly amazing, if you ask me. How one picture can embody so many emotions one has connected with what happened; or how it can make you speechless; how it can put you on the same page with someone opposing your opinion about a certain event - if only for a moment, at least.

Other moments/photographs we could think of are (and I really don't feel like posting some of them here):

- The raising of the American flag on Iwo Jima
- The little girl with her burned skin after Hiroshima
- The dead soldier who had been dragged through Somalia
- The first footstep on the moon

I'd love to have more of those captured moments, but I couldn't think of any so far. So if you have anything, feel free to add. A link or description only, if you feel that the moment is too gruesome for being displayed. One rule: no pictures of famous people. Sure, a picture of Martin Luther King says a lot, but it is rather Martin Luther King who is the message than the picture.

I brought an interesting video as a token of my deep sense of guilt for neglecting everyone. Watch, enjoy, and please excuse me while I return to my decadent life of a student who has fallen into the trap of doing nothing. (And of getting highly addicted to NCIS and Dark Angel. If you ask me, you deserve being ignored for again letting me fall for shows so hard. Dammit, I hardly occupy myself with anything else. Shame on you! All of you!)

But video.

Okay, watch with open eyes, then with closed eyes, and then tell me which sound you hear.

Isn't it amazing how much we still rely on visuals?

People! Should there ever be a meet-up again (and I hope there will be), then it must be in the US and in fall! I'm losing hours here!

Do you all remember the Spring Ahead we had last Saturday? Yes? I'll have it again on the 30th of March! Time is being stolen here!

I'm gonna have to watch TV now to get over the shock.

I'm still MIA. But dudes, most of the stuff I had (and still have) to prepare came out of nowhere! Some professors are more than evil, they're...FOX.

I hope to be able to get most of the stuff done until Thursday.
