She's Singing Her Homework

To Do:

1. Stop sabotaging grades via procrastination
2. Get good grades
3. Get into Oxford for Master's Degree
4. Live the Good Life

Why HELLO future! You look purdy.
Done and done.

Livi is singing out her homework. Par example, "raaate of chaaaange between forty eiiight miiiinutes and fooooorty miiiiinutes....Kaaaaattiiieeee whaaaaat endddding doesssss the accusaaaaative caaaaseeee haaaave innnnn ttheeeee feeeminine fiiiirst declenssiiooon????"

Not much is going on the world of Katie. I'm mega-busing it with Max to St. Louis soon, but until then it's nose to the grindstone as I try and finish:

1 paper discussing the differences and similarities between palatial structures from the Assyrian Empire with the Minoan Empire
2 exams (art history and deutsch)
1 thesis (bah hahaha RIGHT)

...not too bad, but not too good, either. Anyone want to write my thesis for me?

just add messing around with Livi and Manuel to the mix, and there ya go. FML.

I'm working on getting over my fear of whales. It's completely irrational, and serves only to create awkward conversations when asked what my biggest fear is. Some would say Dementors, others would say death. I say, "Orcas."

The sun just came out, and it's completely beautiful and wonderful in the kitchen with the light streaming poetically through the windows as if Zeus opened up the heavens to shine directly on me and Livi. When I said this to Livi, she said, "You're weird, and I just farted." And then danced away. Oh, to be young again...

Hero of the day: Salmon, for providing me with delicious nutrition in a fun and pink way.

That is a surprisingly accurate visual representation of what I look like while feasting

Currently listening to: Regina Spektor singing Real Love
Currently reading: Plato (and, Grace, I don't read "entire historical texts in the span of a week" - I read specific chapters and essays as they relate to my thesis. Just cause I got out of the Banana Stand business doesn't mean you have to be a hater)
Currently craving: my girls to GRADUATE and COME HOME!!!

Peace, Love, and Bitches.

Bendtner, FTW!

We didn't deserve to beat Man U. They're a better team than we are right now. That doesn't mean that the game and the loss don't hurt. Ugh. What a result.

He knew what to do: get wasted and drop some pants. It's what I like to do, and let's be honest - it's hot. Especially the look on the dude to the rights face.

Moving on...

I'm sitting in class right now and am (regrettably) unable to pay attention to Near Eastern Art and Visual Culture. It's a great class, but it's 75 degrees and sunny outside and I just can't take it. Fail?

Speaking of fails, I haven't fallen in a while! I've been running into things, but that's just cause there are too many large objects in my house.

My birthday is coming up. Am I excited to turn 22? No. Woof.

I bet Chuck Norris told time to fuck off and that's how he's stayed at the perfect age of 21 for the past 100 years

Liv update: Mice? GONE. Telling time? We're working on it. Getting out of Baker in less than 20 minutes? Getting better. Snarky comments about my life? Still ever present.

I have a new raison d'etre: Doctor Anthony Whiskers, the Persian kitty that Grace and I are going to get and share custody of.

You may call him Dr. Whiskers. He's a gifted surgeon, and enjoys string.

Did you know that the Hittite King asked Egyptian doctors to come to his court as his personal physicians? Now you do. Good thing I'm paying attention during class, or you would've missed that gem.

Hero of the day: Zeus, for allowing today to be rawsome and not shower us with his thunder bolts again.

I bet you thought I'd have an image of Zeus from an Attic vase or summat? Suckers.

Currently listening to: My professor lecture about Hattusha, the Hittite imperial capital
Currently reading: Reign of the Phallus (for my thesis, and my own personal enjoyment)
Currently craving: to get the F out of here.

Peace, love,and liberation.
