I'll cut your little heart out

Mood: i'll slip my hand under her skirt
Music: Florence & The Machine - Girl With One Eye

Got back our chapter 5 test today: 5-. Still did better than almost everyone else in the class. I also turned in my Kartina recording, and apparently I was the first person in the program to have done so. Since when am I efficient and overachieving? Sheesh. Oh, and we started learning participles in grammar today. Пример: "Это мужчина, встречающийся с ней."

My body's kind of falling apart right now. I cut myself fairly badly with a pair of scissors earlier (long story, let's just say that I don't have the steadiest hands), I stubbed my toe, and I have a splinter in my foot that I can't remove. At this rate I'm probably going to die before the week is up. On the other hand, I ate really well today: several servings of fruits, a veggie burger, milk, and... potato chips. Oh well. Can't be perfect all the time.

I'm debating whether or not I should change my schedule for this upcoming semester. I'm currently registered for Russian lang, Russian Drama, Soviet History, Statistics, and Public Speaking. I'm thinking about dropping one of the latter three - probably Soviet History - and picking up either Portuguese (for a nice easy A) or Geography of Africa (since geography has always fascinated me). Hmm.

Also, here's a pretty awesome song: Battles - Leyendecker.

You should be more careful with scissors and your toes! Good luck getting that splinter out!

I'm just a really clumsy person in general, so I'm not surprised I injured myself so easily... blah. Thanks :)

hey! you're only allowed to drop Soviet History if I go to Germany! I need to have another class with you. And I've heard bad things about geography of Africa. Ask Laura from our Russian class. She loves Africa but dropped the class because it was ridiculous.

why do you think I'm thinking about dropping Soviet History? :P but yeah, now I think I'll forego Geography of Africa... maybe pick up a different Geography class second semester (since I'll only need to take 8 credits to graduate...). Hmm... thanks for telling me about that class...

haha, I'm definitely nowhere near the best in the class - I'm just a good test-taker. Plus, the class is otherwise ridiculously humbling, so that makes up for the tests, haha.

Do let me know what you think about the song. It's, well, it grows on you. But I <3 in like whoa haha.

Portuguese would be really cool, esp. if you ever go to Brazil.

Those first two classes sound really cool.

mmm Portuguese. It's also a critical language, which pretty much means that I'd be able to find a job with at least one of my languages, haha. Plus, I'd be one step closer to being able to talk my way across Europe. ;)

I've taken two languages at once for a while now - back in high school and for (part of my) first year of college I did French and Italian, and for the last two years I've done French and Russian. It's really not as difficult as you'd think, especially if the languages are very different from one another. In fact, I found that learning the second language was even easier than learning the first.

On the other hand, I can't imagine starting two new languages at once - that'd just be insane.

From what I know, the only similarity between Japanese and Chinese are some kanji characters... they aren't even related. (They're about as close to one another as English and Japanese are. Well, sorta.) But yeah, I understand your worries...

is the splinter hurting you? I talked to my son's dr this morning about splinter's Xavier has in his foot and she said if its not bothering you, leave it alone, it could cause too much trauma trying to get it out.
:) hope that helps :) *hugs*

The splinter hasn't bugged me for a couple days now, so I think it's either gone or vanished into my blood stream or something, haha. But your son's doctor's thoughts are really interesting, I'll have to keep that in mind when I get splinters in the future... although they're just so damn annoying! :)

I know what you mean! I have had one in my foot, where John took a credit card and rubbed the crud out of it, and it really hurt more once it was out, then it did when it was even in.
But I never once thought not to touch it, as I was taught as a kid, to remove them asap.
