So, I'm not using LJ anymore, but I thought it would be a good idea to inform my friends on here that I just started a new wordpress blog. I'm studying abroad in Berlin now, and just started it to keep friends and family, mostly family, up to date on my adventures. However anyone is welcome to read it!


I hope everyone is doing well. Hope to see you there!

I'm in Portland right now but I have too much homework to do to really think about seeing all of the people and going to all of the places I've missed. Luckily my favourite pasttime in Portland has always been going to coffeeshops to read, so this trip is going to be a coffeeshop hopping vacation.

Essay in German History (this shit is worth 30% of my grade and is due monday)
Read first and second act in "Der Besuch der Alten Dame" (omg taking FOREVER)
Write first draft about third genders in Native America (past due, but you still need to get a first draft done)
"small assignment" with "rain of gold"

Yay! First round of midterms at uc Berkeley is OVER!!!

I got 40% on the first one. It's the most bullshit class I've ever taken, and people who did well agree. Why are people getting marked down for mispellings of Aztec gods, which happen to be arbitrary information regarding the course material anyways?

HOWEVER...I feel ok about my History midterm. I'm not satisfied with the first portion of it, but for the essay portion, I learned something new about myself. Apparently I'm quite convinced that we need to look at Nazism through the framework of a political religion to understand it. That's not something I ever thought I'd have a strong opinion about. I suppose this means that I'm actually learning!

I'm becoming all to familiar with the sensation on of being on the brink of major life changes. It was just over 8 months ago I was also about to move to a city hundreds of miles away to embark on a completely different lifestyle.

And here I am again.

Though the dynamics may be different, its still the same existential crisis. This time its more academic and less quixotic.

I found a place in Berkeley. I'm pretty stoked on it. Super central location, nice quiet household with a chill (yes, i've given into that adjective) middle aged woman and a studious-looking Cal senior, who ahead of me in German. I have my own balcony that's really big which I LOVE.

A quick check-in on my current musical preferences [Jul. 23rd, 2009|02:08 am]
[music |America]

I never thought the day would come when I would be listening to America more and more. I'm finding they're one of those bands that just always works.

I've also been listening to early Cure a bunch, Simon and Garfunkle, The Smiths, early and late Beatles (not the acidy stuff like usual), and some soul music here and there.

I hate paranoia. It's so hard to be in a healthy relationship after dishonesty. I wish unanswered phone calls didn't lead me to certain conclusions. I try to push them out of my head, but when I've done that in the past I've turned out to be wrong. I hate it so much. I just want to be indifferent.

I started to write this the other night but my computer crashed and then the internet wouldn't work afterwards...

Jetzt habe ich so langeweile. Ich räumte früher mein Zimmer und die Küche auf und wusch viele Wäsche. Ich schlafe seltsame Stunden so bin ich oft einsam. Heute ging ich ins Bett um acht uhr herum und wachte um vier uhr auf. Es ist nur halb drei und meine Stubenkameraden schlafen schon.
