Dear next-door neighbours,

no it is not cool to suddenly blast music so loud that the next block even can hear every word of the lyrics at 4.00am in the morning.
And furthermore it is not okay to then go ahead and argue with your girlfriend, or whoever that squeaky voice was, about the volume of the music.
There are other people living around, even if it doesn't seem like if because the place is so bloody QUIET all the time.

No love
me


I went to bed early yesterday (which btw is one of the reasons I am so behind with my flist. Sorry guys) to catch up on the sleep deficit. It was a good plan and I had, for once, no problems falling alseep.
I even had nice dreams until 4.00am and until so idiotic drunkensomething decided to play hardcore rock and wake uop every single person around. I mean I appreciate that someone tried to do somehting but the constant jumps between loud and slightly less less and no music at all for almost an hour was not really helping matters. Police was around at one time, so I guess someone called them. I would have done it if had gone on.

I was feeling okay on the way to talk to my prof, which turned out to be a useless act since she has her office hours tomorrow and not today. I was awake and feeling okay, so I went to get some more things done at the library. Unfortunately it was not the Brain today but the *new* JFK library. New as in newly re-opened after the construction work that was donw to the whole building. The problems is, they are not finished by any means. Not at all. So it was loud and sticky (because this time the AC was not on at all. So I didn't freeze to death but couldn't breath.. yay?). And they had a huge water leak in all of the bathrooms, like water not only leaking but running down the walls and stairs in some kind of little waterfalls. Joy. Oh and the security guy was working on the door, freaking alarm sounded every few minutes.

I don't really know what happened but it kind of it me. I was about to fall alseep there. My head was *this* close to hitting the desk and it was about to explode at the same time. I mean I actually managed to get some things done and I really hope they'll be enough for the exam on Monday but still it wasn't such a productive day. Not as much as I wished it would be.
Slept for two hours when I got home and now I am trying to catch up with LJ, emails (for those who are interested, no answer from NBC yet.) and get more exams stuff done. But really, I am drained.

Yesterday was better. I did get more stuff done and I managed to go and watch "Hancock". I liked it. It was good for that kind of action movie.

Photo meme thingy, you can still ask me to take pictures of things.

Someone asked for a picture of my favourite place in town. I never thought this would be such a hard task, because there are a lot of places I liked to be at or in but I couldn't really say which one of them is my favourite. I could tell you my fav places in London or Barcelona or even in California but here... it's hard to decide.

***
Obama will be here on the 24th and now they are arguing about whether they should allow him to speak in front of the Brandenburg Gate or not. Some people fear it would look like the government is preferring one of the candidates.
D'uh.
the_milky_way: (aaron/ryan (melbourne))
See? I said I would be spamming.

I love Larsen in USC colors. I don't know but I love it.
Larsen from last night.


And dude, arms.


Aaron will be swimming today, so I guess I'll be watching at least the prelims.
Mike scratched the 100m Back, but Ryan will still be swimming it. So there is the chance for Aaron and Ryan to qualify 1-2 (not matter which way).

This picspam is for [livejournal.com profile] blue_ant because it's Erik and I promised to post some Erik pictures.
There you go. )

The Team in Berlin. It still feels cool to see that even though I am not there this time.
I know how it is to be there and be in the middle of the party so seeing it on the TV screen is kinda nice as well.
It is cool that they are breaking tradition for the fans, with coming to Berlin instead of Frankfurt.

I like the shirts.

Ha.. Poldi und Pocher..

And I still have a slight crush on Thomas Helmer. Hehe.. It's been years but still...

***
University wise this day was a failure. Well not completely but still. Got books back to the library and got a new one.
The admin office, or rather the desk being responsible for my kind of degree, was not manned today, which we only saw when we were standing in front of the door.
D'uh. Okay, next try Wednesday. Because really this is the last step I need to do to be able to do the exams.

Okay then... back to Oscar Wilde.
the_milky_way: (micha)
FINALE!!!!!!!

Holy Shit.
Not such a good game but still... they did it.

*bounce*

And shit it's loud around here.

ETA: Seems like the team will be in Berlin again, no idea if it applies to both cases (win or not) but it would be cool to do it again. This time it will be a Monday, so maybe not so many people (yeah right.. *snorts).

Josi? Petschan asked where my twin was today.. *grins*
Was good that I was there today, he totally forgot to ask for a room and wanted me to take the consultation in september.
I had to remind him that the exam was July. So he wrote everything down.. again.

***
still have to decide what to do about NBC.
the_milky_way: (alec (wild night)
... or better in, since we stayed in and watched the GNTM finale last night. We, as in Claudia, Josi, Josi's sister and me; bitched our way thnrough the show. And really this is the only to watch a show like that.
It was really predictable and well kind of boring.
Afterwards we got somehow stuck in front of the computer looking at F1 pics and icons and well talking... It's always weird to go to bed to birds singing and the sun rising (which happens freaking early these days).

I wanted to do so much today but right now I am dizzy as hell and about to fall asleep in front of my computer. At least it isn't that hot anymore. I wanted to start going through my books but got stuck on my flist. Haven't commented or checked all of it, so I have missed anything important yell at me.
After a year of not having a working bike I finally managed to get one of the two bikes we own ready for the summer. I took it out last night to get to Josi's place and right now I am trying to decide if it was a good idea or not. My legs feel like jelly and my back hurts even more than it did before. But I feel kind of refreshed after the hike back home and a nice shower (refreshed as in my body feels like but my head is still dizzy... a lot).

Can't decide what to do now, sleep or start to study (even though I doubt I get much done today) or write (same goes here as for the studying).
I want to know how The Cape would have gone on if they had gotten another season. But 12 years after it's rather pointless to even muse about it.
More creative freedom for me I guess.

I have to get things done this weekend but Klete as well as Aaron have decided to swim, and that at different meets. *sighs* More work for me but I actually don't mind all that much, gives me a reason to take a break from studying (well besides the F1 race ion Sunday, which I am not even sure I am going to watch. I have feeling I am jinxing things these days. Meh.. ).

Oh and my cat seems to have forgiven me for leaving her alone the whole night, she is all cuddling up to me right now.

ETA: I feel like I am forgetting something. I don't even know what it might be... it could be an important date or something.. I am not sure.
the_milky_way: (sg1 (daniel/vala))
Well, not really since "The Ark of Truth" is dated to this year.
But I forgot why I used to watch SG-1 and this reminded me of the many reasons.
I think back and realise that Supernatural actually isn't the first show I have been following right from the start, it's just the first fandom I followed from the beginning (I usually got into fnadoms that already existed before SPN).
SG-1 has the honor of being one of the first shows I really watched from start to end (older shows actually followed later.. mostly due to reruns).
I forgot how snarky, bitchy and hilariously funny SG-1 could be... They kind of never took themselves all that serious and that especially during the last years.
"The Ark of Truth" is no exception from that and I actually found myself laughing out loud a couple of times. Just what I needed today.
But I still find Julian Sands kind of creepy...

Some quotes, so basically spoilers (and yes I know this isn't exactly new) )

Guess what I got yesterday? Right. My CD.
Wheee.. with a huge sticker on it saying "Deliver!!!!"
I guess that means someone messed up the last few days. Thank God it worked out though.

I actually got some things done today. University-wise. I am just not really sure if I am reading the right things. I am slightly confused here.
Am alone at home again for the next three days, so I guess I'll have the space and nerve to actually get more things done. I really need to because time is running out.
I was actually contemplating of staying the whole next two days holed up and not leave the house but I just realised that I have to actually go shopping if I want to have something to drink.
The prospect of leaving the house with temps up tp 33°C isn't very appealing though. I could take the car and go around 8 or 9pm, might be late enough for the heat to be somewhat less oppressing.

And one of these days I should maybe go to the pool again.

This was one of the most useless trips top uni ever. First the office was closed due to vacation then the library server was down and nobody could get any books. Bah.. I had all the books already in my hands!!!!
I wanted to start studying today... oh well or at least have the books here and look at them.
*sighs*

At least I got the extended special edition of Don for 7.99 instead of the single version for 20.95 at amazon.
Yay, I am awesome when it comes to looking for Bollywood movies.. *g*

Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] angieobsessed!!!!

Okay I need a little help here.
First I need to find a second (or better two) topics for my British Literature oral exam.
They don't have to be too complex, just some ideas about topics which might be good for an exam of 30 minutes. I am kind of out of British Lit topics, I know more about American Lit *hides*

Oh and I am looking for contemporary American Literature (fiction, novel) which are focused on folklore and/or urban legends.
Just hit me with some titles, I need to find some (at least two).
I don't know but I thought about Paul Auster and James Welch but I need more.
Anybody?
I'd appreciate it.
Thanks guys.
the_milky_way: (pained alec)
Let's not talk about it.
*sighs*
Anyway, thank you guys for the good luck wishes, don't know yet if they helped. I'll probably find out soon.

Still sick, still a bleeding nose.
I think I am off to bed to watch some F1 2007 Highlights. I need me some Kimi now.
Just to cheer up.
And then I'll sleep. For days.
the_milky_way: (sam (puppy not amused) slippery_fish)
Sick. Yep. And some fever, which thankfully is gone now, hope it stays gone.
Anyway stuffed nose turned into stuffed and bleeding nosed. How I hate that.

But at least I got some studying done. Need to to more of course but I think I'll manage.

Wish me luck for tomorrow.
Helped last time.. :)
the_milky_way: (wr (good times))
Thank you for all the good luck wishes. It seemed like it helped.
A lot.
Aced it! With a 1 (which means an A for all non-Germans).
Oh my God, I still can't believe it. I have no idea how I did that.
A step closer to graduation!
Wheeeeeeee!!!

Thanks [livejournal.com profile] sandrine for the text. *hugs*
(I really should reload my card. Sorry, couldn't answer).

*is dead*
the_milky_way: (jensen (d'uh))
I am sick. Like nauseous and all that.
And I have the exam tomorrow. Dude, why does my life suck so much???

Anyway, wish me luck?
I need it 'cause my head is empty and I know absolutely nothing.
Failure ahead.
*flails and is sick again*
the_milky_way: (hiding)
Okay, does anybody know why some entries of my friends do not show up on my friendslist but I am able to read them in the journals? They are not even locked or something.
I have no idea what I have missed. This is so weird. Can't be my layout can it?

Good news of the day: my prof seems to be impressed by the thesis paper (he said that at least) and he gave some more tips for the exam. It calms me down a bit and now I know what to concentrate on.
Of course I am nervous and all but I am less panicky (which will come back the day before, I am sure of it).
I feel like I should be doing something today, maybe organize my notes and read through the one book I still need to cover.
But I am so damn tired.
And I want to do something for my Big Bang story.

Roy Scheider is dead. o.O

Oh and Larsen is still a Trojan.
Wonder why he hasn't joined back with Mission Viejo, he wanted it so much last year.
Not that I mind him being a Trojan (it's USC after all). He can help Klete not to drown.

Got the final permission paper I needed for my final exam (at least in one major).
Now I just need to finish up the thesis and than the hardcore studying can begin. I still feel like I have way too few notes and books.
And really the owrst that can happen is that I fail, and I am pretty sure I'll get another try then.. at least I hope so.

The only thing that isn't nice today? My splitting headache.
Haven't had it that bad in ages and I think I just drank too little. So it's basically my own fault.
I wanted to work on the thesis thingy but I think I'll just rest for a bit. I doubt that anything I'll do now will be worth the effort.
So working tonight it is.
the_milky_way: (spn dean (sundays))
How much to I love that RTL is using Kimi and his car in their new season trailer? I already knew the sports trailer but I never paid attention to the others.
Heheh.. Uhm...

My brain is mush. Nothing new though.
I just have no idea hbwere to stuff all the info I'll need for my exam.
Still way behind but I am running out of books (and maybe even time) but I so need a break.
And I just realized that if I don't go and talk to my prof on Monday (all the questions I still have) I won't have much time left doing it.
Huh. Well, have to go to the library anyway.

Torchwood. No idea what to think.
But I have to give it to them, they do look good together.
I think that was the only scene I could really take in last night. Have to watch it again, preferably without fast forwarding (because I wanted to go to bed).

/randomness

Oh and I am cold. Like really, really cold.
Might be because I am tired or because my nightly fever attacks are back. I am not really sure.
the_milky_way: (priestly (thinking))
... to be random. My head is kinda empty right now. Too much reading. And I don't even remember what I read.
That's what notes are for right?

Got another late Christmas present yesterday. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] anjaliss! *hugs*
COOKIES!!!!

Aaron is set to swim this weekend. In Dallas.
And I could watch it if it wasn't for me being all caught up in books and notes and stupid thesis things. Bah..
*sighs*

Oh and the SPN 3.09 promo looks good.
And considering that I am slightly freaking out over the time going too fast these days, the 31st shouldn't be that far anymore.
the_milky_way: (sam (puppy not amused) slippery_fish)
I haven't been feeling well for days and Sunday it just hit me. Hard. I have been down since then. Haven't done much, reading Harry/Draco mainly and of course SPN.
My chest feels like someone is sitting on it and my throat is numb from the pain (which actually is good if it wasn't too dry most of the time as well).
My muscles hurt, my skin is overly sensitive and my bed is kinda the only place I want to be.
At least I had time to finish the last Christmas stuff (well okay, not the stories) and will send it off tomorrow (if I can get up and out without feeling dizzy and break out in a sweat that is).

This all throws my plans I had for the week. I feel all restless and twichty because I haven't done anything for uni the last three days.
I really should but I can barely read through a 2000 word story without getting sleepy and headachy. I hate being sick like that.
I don't really mind a simply cold but being down and hurting all day isn't that much fun.

I haven't much to say anyway, am just going over my flist.

Oh and being sick produces the weirdest ideas, at least in my head. I am back to going through all my Westlife CDs and actually liking their new one. *headdeask*
Not to mention all the crack plot bunnies I suddenly have. Meeep.. Evil!Bunnies.
the_milky_way: (F1 (iceman))
I used to be pretty good at organizing my days and managed to actually do the things I planned. Right now though I plan stuff, then I wake up in the morning and decide that it has time. A few days (or even weeks) later I remember the things I wanted to do (yes, sometimes to-do lists are useful, when I have placed them somewhere where I actually look at them). So far it has never been too late to do them but I fear that one of these days I will forget something important.
Reason for the rant? I promised my grandma to do something and forgot about it the second she asked. I wrote it down and I remembered today.
Embarrassed is a nice word which fits here.

Reminder to self:
I cannot forget to pay for APO in a few days. I cannot! And I won't.

***
I have been reading way too much today. I want more. And there isn't more right now.
I don't know but I have been alternating between reading stories, my books and notes for uni and working on the two stories I am working on.

I am freaking COLD!

****
You can still ask me fandoms for the meme here.
Go on, I am bored. :)
the_milky_way: (larsen)
So the second day of the World Cup was kinda amusing. I don't know why I find it strange but it was when I saw most of the guys I know from college swimming on the pool deck in my hometown.
No wonder I dreamed of Mike Cavic last night. I don't know how often I have seen him swim but this year was different. Might be because we decided to cheer for the Race Club members simply because they were Race Club (it's all Gary's fault anyway). Cheered for by association. *g*
Anyway, no Gary again but two more World Records and a couple of European ones as well.
And now it's another year with Trials and Olympic Games inbetween.

Golden Goggles. not much to say about that. Just why do they let the fans vote if they don't considered the results for the actually awards???? I mean a lot of other swimmers were leading the pools and Phelps really doesn't need another three awards.
I have hoped for RyRy and Kate Ziegler.. but in the end it all came down to Mike, Bob and politics.
So anyway, this is for [livejournal.com profile] blue_ant


And this one is for me just because... Sheep!! Larsen!

Uni today was surprisingly successful. Found a prof for the oral exam at least and I can keep my old topics.
So yay.
Thank God, at least that is solved now.

World Coffee's "Orange Chocolate Woccochino" is simply heaven. I could live it on it.
Seriously, I think that is one of my favourite drinks right now.
the_milky_way: (jared/jensen (insanity))
Online chat with Samantha Ferris? Awesome.
Hearing once again what Jensen and Jared read online? Not so awesome.
Dude, that is more than embarrassing.
Kim Manners? Is still totally and utterly crazy. Nothing new here.

In other news: chocolate chip icecream with caramel fudge. Calms me down and gets me over the McLaren stuff. *pouts*
I feel like five and stomp my feet yelling "Leave Kimi alone" but I doubt that this would have any other effect than me looking totally stupid.
Chocolate chip icecream it is then.

Did I learn today? Not really.
Did I take notes. Yes, some.
Did I read. Plenty.
Does it make me feel better about any of this.
NO.

So not sleeping is bad but apparently sleeping for 18 hours staroght is bad as well. I am fucking dizzy.

Guess I will either sleep okay tonight or not at all.
Might use the night to find two nmore topics for the exam then, man I suck at deciding and finding books for the topics.
