Gotta love weekends with nothing going on. Why? Because you get a lot of random things you normally don't have time for done. For instance, I have

> read two complete novels [Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (highly recommend, if you like random, in-your-face humor) and The Notebook (I got it 4 years ago this July and am JUST now reading it...)],
> watched two movies [American Psycho (Christian Bale is a crazzzzy guy - need I say more?) and Snatch (hahahaha, hands down one of the best movies I have ever seen; Go watch it now!)],
> gotten 3/4 done with a 1000 piece Disney Photomosaics puzzle I started in April [will post a pic upon completion],
> cooked lots of awesome food in a cooking frenzy Saturday night
> and watched old Family Guy episodes for the first time in forever [forever being...3 months, which is actually a long time when you figure that we used to have Family Guy playing in our apartment on a more than daily basis],

all since Thursday afternoon. Quite an interesting weekend for not going home, all in all. Now off to watch more movies! And teach myself Calculus II! o.O

This week I recommend:
>Snatch: seriously, go watch that movie. Its pretty freaking awesome.

This week I don't recommend:
>Calculus II: especially when its being taught by a new teacher who likes to drop words in sentences and skip straight to quizzes with no actual teaching >.>

Song Obsession of the Moment: "In My Place" by Coldplay

So, I have come to the conclusion that I need to distract myself. Why? Well, with the onset of Summer B and as a result more free time, I find myself with huge lengths of time with nothing to do. [Note: Summer B started yesterday, so you can see how quickly I am reacting to this occurrence.]

Me + nothing to do = BAD

When I have nothing to do, I tend to start over-analyzing things going on in my life, worrying about things that need not be worried about, annoying everyone around me and basically falling into a state of depression that I can't stand. Therefore, I have come up with a list of distractions to occupy my free time this summer. Possible distractions are:

> Tennis - when the weather is nice [aka not raining or oven-like], playing more tennis will [should] help me get better at it
> Guitar - there's one sitting in our living room, why not learn it?
> Spanish - Latin is awesome, but I can't speak it...
> Chronicles of Narnia - I can finally read them!
> Pool - One can only get better at pool by playing it alot, sooo I think I should play it more
> Rock Climbing - Intersperse this with tennis and kickboxing classes at the gym and I will have my exercise down pat ^.^

Ok, so I've already made myself promise myself not to try to do all of these, as that would turn these good distractions into bad distractions and I also wouldn't get really good at anything, which would defeat the point. But yeah, distracting myself back to normal - that's one for the books =D

Gotta love xkcd ^.^

set it off

I finally got around to making a new layout! I'm going to keep tweaking with it, but for now I'm happy with it. Been home for the past two weekends and they were fun: I've seen Iron Man twice [awesome, awesome movie], The Happening [I liked it - and I'm happy my friend Jordan convinced me to see it, as I never would have had the guts to see a M. Night Shyamalan film otherwise], and The Incredible Hulk [Edward Norton. Enough said.] There are a few other movies coming out this summer that look really good, so that's exciting. Hmm, summer A is done! That means no more Western Civ - I liked it, it was an interesting class, but I don't mind not having to do work for it anymore; grades comes out Thursday, so we'll see if Western Civ liked me back.

Ok, so I saw this is another blog and thought it was cool so I'll start doing it here:

This Week I Recommend:
>Coldplay's new album Viva la Vida: its really good; my fave songs at the moment happen to be the two released singles: Violet Hill and Viva la Vida
>Gold Bond: *deep commercial voice* "the every itch anti-itch cream", though in this case its for mosquito bites, which I have wayyyy too many of. Lesson to be learned: never wear shorts and a tanktop to the beach at night after it had been raining for hours on end - it is NOT a good idea.

This week I Don't Recommend:
>Mosquitos: [see above]
>Skankwhore Freshmen: Honestly, they act and dress like full-fledged skankwhores, but exude the lost aura that follows summer A freshmen like a bad grade - its doesn't help their case that their everywhere... o.O

peace :)
