So, 3 more hours or so for you? That's when I'm hoping to finish the paper. Fantastic. And as for how my work is going, well, I started the first sentence. laugh.gif

I find that I have to write in almost complete silence. Music is too thought-provoking for me, and I cannot think analytically if there is something playing in the background. ph34r.gif
blueices
When I lived at home, the noisy li'l sibs proved too distracting; so I learned to drown them out with music that was both nice, but not such that I would stop concentrating and sing along. (hence my love for bgm from many many soundtracks) happy.gif

- First sentence! That's the hardest one laugh.gif
Keep going! (I find myself posting between sentences too) laugh.gif

my current thought/crackpot theory:

the amazing similarity between

therefore my current crackpot theory is....

Nobuo Uematsu and Hiroyuki Sakai are, in fact, the same person!!!! laugh.gif

Those are endangered now, yes . . . and I noticed the contrast you made with the black & white picture of Uematsu and the Sakai photo with the bright outfit.  laugh.gif

also note the seriousness of uematsu in b&w and the cheerfulness of sakai in color; sorry just remembering back to my graphic advertisement classes laugh.gif

@bling: they have sororities for people not in college?!

I wish. I haven't even finished the first. mellow.gif

Current Thoughts:

- At least this Indian epic I'm supposed to write about will be easier than the one I have to write on the Odyssey three weeks from now.
- Dreads the Odyssey essay.

Nice combination though. biggrin.gif So opposites DO look good together. Or in this case, are one and the same. laugh.gif
Bling_bling_Angel
Pfft, pretty damned much, Pops... it's a church sorority group... sleep.gif
blueices
church and sorority seem kind of paradoxical to me happy.gif (I'm sure its not that kind of sorority) laugh.gif
hitokiri
now thats two words i would have never thought i would see in the same phrase.... church + sorority = does not compute
Gashole
The two people above me already said what I was gonna say.
Bling_bling_Angel
*holds hands up* Hey, I didn't come up with it!
Quistis88
So, what exactly do you people do in this . . . "church sorority"?
definingmind
Guys..just because the word 'soroity' has been stained by certain..activties doesn't mean that having one at a church can be a bad thing..I'm not yelling at anyone and I hope you're all just picking on her as usual...Sorry about that..I'm off to bed now..

Edit - I still love all of you guys and think your a great bunch. It's just the gentlemanly side of me kicked up and I couldn't sit back and watch Bling get picked on again. Truth be told I was snickering at the comment at first and like to pick on her occasionally too. ph34r.gif
blueices
haha, I like this use of quotations: the alleged "church sorority"
mei_tenshi
I'm really curious about Bling's church sorority.

- I have to get up early tomorrow morning to sell donuts, bagels, and coffee to the staff at their meeting. What fun. mellow.gif Ah well. At least the money goes to a good cause.
- Not tired enough to want to sleep. Feels...stange. blink.gif
Gashole
@def: We're not picking on her. We're just being confused.
definingmind
Ahh, then I apologize for flying off the handle before all the facts were assesed then.
I must admit though, I am curious too as to what goes on there...
xrninja
i, too, am curious as to what a "church sorority" is like.

- it's 11:30 and i'm a little tired today, so it's time to play "what homework do i have to do tonight?" so! first, lang is reading, but we're probably going to go over the AP MC we did today and then burrough's "science and literature," which means there probably won't be time for mill's "utitalarianism." and physics i can do in tutorial tomorrow morning. japanese....sensei won't be there tomorrow, and my friend's the homework stamper and will give me credit for my kanji, whether i wrote them or not. newspaper, i have two art requests, but they were both given to me late, meaning i can drag it out a little longer. nothing as usual for art, and i have a calc quiz tomorrow.....should probably study XP

Thoughts:
-Need sleep...
-Insomnia sucks!
-I need pills!
-Give me sleep Lord... Please!
-I am so tired, but my eyes will not stay closed, for I am in a artist frenzy in my mind every second a picture is drawn... to bad I am not a good at drawing people... I think I may have A.D.D... Even when trying to sleep... dry.gif
-And my stomach still hurts... sad.gif

Finally done with Japanese (sigh of relief)

Will celebrate by stretching my legs, making coffee, and printing out some readings from the 3rd floor computer room laugh.gif

I bet you are very happy and tired to be done. biggrin.gif
I had a paper due but I am a slacker and a bad student, so I decided not to do it. biggrin.gif
I'm just lazy and don't feal like doing things when I can do things I want to do... I guess that makes me an ignorent person, but ignorence is bliss...

EEEK! That's bad! (It better not be due tomorrow or I might have to throw something at you. laugh.gif

Now: On to the Music Humanities Readings (praying that it doesn't induce sleep)

How's your music class btw, Quistis? You are learning about operas right? (I'm set to watch Carmen in mid Feb. I'm looking forward to it very much) happy.gif (I'll put my highschool Italian to work)

It's good. I just don't like all the papers I will have to write and the projects I will have to do. There are listening portions in the tests, and I rely on what little French and Italian I know to pull me through those ones. biggrin.gif We're supposed to be doing all these listenings on our own, but I haven't done any yet.

Though I did purchase an opera on DVD today (see some post in this thread from earlier today).

Thank you, darling... happy.gif

However, I'm afraid people here wouldn't understand how this church group works... I think the two of us are the only ones here who frequent church, anyhow... they wouldn't understnad the terms "consecration", "dedication", and "devotion"... mellow.gif

- I have a sudden desire to buy Die Zauberflöte on DVD. Performed and recorded at the Metropolitan Opera House. It has English, French, and Chinese subtitles. I could use some brushing up on the last two.
- It's $27.00. Should I . . . ?


That sounds really interesting, the blending of languages I mean. (You've sparked my interest)
Too bad it was so expensive. sad.gif
Bling_bling_Angel
$27...? Is it worth it? mellow.gif
Quistis88
Yes, expensive. I bought it anyway. And I read the price tag wrong. It was actually $27.99, and with GST, comes to a total of $29.95. For me, it was practically free, since I used a gift card. biggrin.gif I now have 5 cents left on the gift card. It'll come in handy somewhere, I'm sure.

Not sure if it's worth it. I'm planning on watching tomorrow. We'll find out then.
Bling_bling_Angel
*shrugs* Hopefully, it is...
Quistis88
Mozart wrote it while he was dying. It can't be all bad. Have you heard of it, Angel?
Bling_bling_Angel
*nods head* I've got the album of it... music album, that is...
Quistis88
You've heard the whole thing, then? Did you like it?
Bling_bling_Angel
I listened to it half-way... I think it's not bad, really... heck, it's MOZART! 'Course it's good! happy.gif

Speaking of classical music, I'm listening to Stravinsky's - The Rite of Spring.
It's kind of a biased listen though. Because of watching Fantasia so much when I was little, all I think of is the creepy way Disney presented the extinction of the dinosaurs when listening to this laugh.gif
Gashole
classic = of the highest quality
classical = a Greek period

Just something I just learned from my art class. tongue.gif
blueices
haha, you just made me notice that I forgot to insert the word "music" into my post

Random Thought:
It's interesting that when referring to "the classics" - people usually just think of works of Western civilization. However, according to its meaning, it's unfortunate one also doesn't also automatically think of works such as the Confucian Analects, the Tale of Genji, The Art of War. etc.

Ah, I'm glad that the forum's Queen is indeed of greater stock laugh.gif

-Forum Thoughts:
It seems that I shall be signing off soon (almost done with my reading for tomorrow's class) I'm not even going to attempt Kant at this hour, there's no way I'll be able to absorb his jargon into my brain right now.

(It's during times like this that I think becoming a mere brain in a jar like Arche is quite appealing) laugh.gif
