Since I've handed in the last of my personal projects today, I consider school as good as finished for the year. Now just to figure out what on earth I'm supposed to be doing toward the open house that will be happening next week. Erm. Anyway. Blah blah de blah.

WELL

HECK YES

:iconcalthyechild: instigated this, and it'd be more than sweet if it grew into a monster. Everybody do something, or more than one somethings!

  • Listening to: Massive Attack

WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE
  • Listening to: Prodigy's Firestarter
  • Reading: Mere Christianity
I'm in the middle of writing this thingie for my group's industry research class presentation, except my mind is busy being occupied with thoughts about Herb Lubalin's colourblindness as well as "chicken" ramen. Mmmmm.

Going to Chicago on April the Second. Hopefully I will come back with tons of purty pictures, some of which may be post-worthy. This is definitely something to look forward to, going to haunt a major architectural/arts centre.
  • Listening to: The fan in the washroom
  • Reading: The six Dune books, again
  • Eating: Ramen
There should be a logic-defying streetcar. I'd desire it.
  • Listening to: The washing machine
  • Reading: The Three Musketeers and everything else
  • Watching: My birds
  • Playing: ACKPTH.
  • Eating: D'SCHMAUNT FAHT UND D'VERENIKI
  • Drinking: Some kind of cranberrah punch.
The title is an abstract representation of a municipality on the prairies. Either that, or I feel like making up random excuses.

After realising I hadn't really said anything since October, I decided it was likely time to post another journal entry. Since I don't have a preconceived topic, I'm going to ramble. And that's that.

It's suddenly February, the groundhog's shadow didn't show here, and I'm twenty. Well, I've been that way for almost a month now, but who's counting. Apart from the fact that I've managed to complete another decade of life without dying, it doesn't seem to count for much. The age of majority for everything in Manitoba is eighteen, in some other provinces it's nineteen for some things, and in the States it's twenty-one for some things again. And the realisation hit a few months ago that I will be thirty in ten years. Ten years. That's it. I will be out of school by the time I'm twenty-two, and I will likely spend the next three or four years improving my financial state. Doing what, I don't know, but I have my suspicions I will be spending them in Manitoba. The cost of living here is so wonderfully low compared to many other places I want to go, which brings me to the next desire of travel. If I don't get off this continent by the time I'm twenty-five I might go insane (by which I mean clinically insane, and not just delightfully eccentric/weird/occasionally disturbing). Neither have I met a guy I'd want to spend the rest of my life with. I'm refusing to drop my standards on that one, though.

Ahh, screw it. It's time for some German techno. And political cartoons! And bitter, bitter cynicism. Varda, I despise the media.
  • Listening to: Something on the National Geographic channel.
  • Reading: The Three Musketeers
  • Watching: Wait, I just told you.
  • Playing: With my hair.
  • Eating: Mmmm, Nutella.
  • Drinking: Milk. Because I'm eating Nutella.
So with school starting, and my being a graphic design student, my teachers are giving me very legitimate excuses to come up with more junk to post on here. When I get access to a scanner, anyway. Just like the scanfest I had today... woo-hah.
  • Listening to: The furnace kicking in again.
  • Reading: The Confusion by Neal Stephenson.
  • Watching: ...Not a whole lot.
  • Playing: Also not a whole lot.
  • Eating: Pizza. Well, that was five hours ago.
  • Drinking: Coke with lime.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. So I still don't really know what I'm doing here, but that's okay. I should really try getting down a sketch of the assassin and the Prime Minister playing Connect Four in my crawlspace. The assassin had been playing the angel of death formerly, but you know...the angel of death is always on call.
