I’m considering emailing the guy I met this summer and went on one date with to see if he’d like to meet up again sometime. He’s 22. I’m 26. He was really into me then. Maybe he’d be willing to give it another chance.
The Tangential: What Would Happen in Hell if It... →
thetangential: -Everyone would immediately be paired with a friend who wanted to do nothing but talk about their one summer abroad in France. -The only show on TV would be MASH. -Each morning would start out with a 1-hour debate about which Radiohead album was the best. -All hand soaps and body products…
The two students who just showed up to my class basically restored my faith in my students’ desire to learn. Okay, so not all of my students are interested in the topic I teach: I’m not naive enough to expect that. I gave these two students the option to leave since there were only two of them, but they stayed, and we had a productive session. It only lasted an hour, but I think they...
Are You Kidding Me?
Sometimes I wish my (adult) students would STFU when I’m teaching. If all they want to do is study for the exam for another class, then why do they even come to mine? Attendance is not mandatory… Grr…
Springtime for Jessica
Someone please get the reference in my title… Anyway. I enjoy spring very much. However, it usually creates a problem with my wardrobe. See, I have to dress warmly in the morning because it’s really cold. Then, by the afternoon, I’m usually too warm and end up carrying around a jacket. Boo on that. Plus, it usually gets colder later on, so then I need the jacket. Luckily I...
I’m not sure how I feel about Don Draper: Season Five Version… I’ll see what happens next week. But for now, let me say that I REALLY enjoyed the season premier of “Mad Men.”
Black ballet flats: shipped! I wish that I could have them for tomorrow, but I can make due without them.
And “Man Men” is on SideReel! Cannot wait to watch it when I get home!
First World Problem
If I cannot watch “Mad Men” when I get home from work tonight, I will be a sad, sad panda. However, knowing me, if it’s not on SideReel, I will just get it from iTunes… Money well spent.
Black ballerina flats: Ordered.
My Wednesday-Friday this week were uncannily similar to my Wednesday-Friday last week. Last week: Wednesday: Faust (Part 1) and dinner in Ludwigshafen Thursday: Frankfurt Museum of Modern Art wearing fancy clothes and dinner with friends Friday: Ludwigshafen for lunch with German sister. This week: Wednesday: Faust (Part 2) and dinner in Ludwigshafen Thursday: Frankfurt to meet up with an...
And I'm Off
Well, off to LU again to see the doctor and see if there are any new results from the blood test from last week. Ugh. I still feel crappy.
The utility company just came to check our heating system. He did all the work, but I feel like I accomplished something for the day. It’s only 9am, and I’ve accomplished something already! Never mind that I haven’t showered yet… Also, I think I’m going to bite the bullet and just order the two pairs of ballet flats that I want. Screw it.
Christian Bale has fangs.
The Tangential: What “What’s in Your Bag” Says... →
thetangential: In your bag: Film camera (Holga?), cigarettes, wallet adorned with meme three memes after “put a bird on it.” In your garbage: Weird kind of rice you read about on a cooking blog that you couldn’t figure out how to turn into food, mainstream cards your mom sends you for mainstream holidays,…
If Common Sense Was Used in Government and the...
Citizen: I don't believe in abortion.
Government: Then don't get one.
Citizen: I don't believe in birth control.
Government: You don't have to use it.
Citizen: I think gay marriage is a sin.
Government: Don't marry the same sex then.
Citizen: I want my kids to learn about creationism.
Government: Take them to church.
I’m just bummed out today, and I don’t really know why. I still don’t feel great, and I’m at work because if I don’t work, I don’t get paid, and I really need to work. The inhaler kind of works, but something is still wrong. Maybe the inhaler hasn’t had enough time to really work. I am 26; I should not be having chest pains. My job is also making me...
One week until Mad Men!
I’m thinking of buying bloody Mary supplies in order to properly celebrate this joyous occasion.
It's Getting Old
This whole “Chest-Pain-Trouble-Breathing-Tired” thing is really, really, really getting old. It is like 70° and sunny outside right now, and I am stuck inside on my couch because I don’t feel good enough to venture outside. I did that Thursday and yesterday, and I am now paying for it. Grrr. Displeased. I don’t care what happens though. I am going to Mallorca in April....
Jackie’s husband, Kevin, the one who owns the bar, is really attractive. I’m not really sure why she’d cheat on him. Just saying.
I was just going to write a post about how weird I think Faust is, but then I just scrolled down and realized I’d already written that. My life is also kind of weird, but not in the same way that Faust is weird.
shitmystudentswrite: The Cotton Gin refers to the alcohol consumed by those working on cotton farms.
I really enjoy “Nurse Jackie”; however, in re-watching the reruns in preparation for the new season in April, I noticed something. Jackie’s husband, Kevin, owns a bar, but in every episode, he drinks crappy (American) domestic beer. WTF? I feel like he should have better taste than Budweiser. Living in Germany has kind of made me a beer snob, but Budweiser? Seriously??
Faust is freaking weird
Und “Blut ist ein ganz besonderer Saft.”
This whole sitting around all the time because I don’t feel good enough to do very much thing has gotten old, and I’m getting bored. Like, drying my hair is an effort. Hopefully, I get this whole mess sorted out soon. Don’t ever drink Red Bull in excessive quantities. It is so bad for you, and I feel like it has finally caught up to me. Seriously. Long story short: Friday was...
When I take a long look at my life, as though from outside, it does not appear...– Hermann Hesse, Gertrude (via psychotherapy)
One student came to my class. I’m preparing for a barrage later. At least this gives me a chance to rest before the rest of this long, long day.
