oh no

10 Dec

I doubt any but the most hard-core webcomic readers will understand that reference- but there is a shirt at Topatoco that I want with said title upon it. I would further gain geekyness, however, by wearing said shirt… Ah, whatever.

Today was one of those days that start out great and end up dumping your body into a ditch, like a prom-afterparty serial killer.
I have had three math tests in the last two days, and I am taking one tommorrow. I do not understand why we are suddenly being bogged down with this veritable wall off terror- I want to not spend three quarters of my time studying, I want to stay up until the wee hours of the morning writing poetry and ideas and remembering.
Tweed may no longer need a pseudonym, if things continue as well as they have. However, Bortglomt is still being confusing and ridiculously magnificent- I once wrote a poem about Tweed that actually sums up about all I feel right now. I will link to it later, but for now take my word for it.
Currently listening to Takk…, as it is the only thing at the moment that can successfully relax me. Besides yoga.
Will write more in the near future; until then, ciao.

castles floating in the birdcage sky

13 Nov

I am probably the most downright pooped I’ve been in the last year and a half. Play practice has proceeded to suck all the vitality out of me, despite my feeble protests. All my grades in my classes are slowly sinking lower…hopefully I can fix this problem soon. Tomorrow is the last performance, sadly, and I will be reduced to a jelloid mass by the end of it. But cast party! Yaaaay! I am excited.
In other news, been listening to very mellow music recently (currently, C.Visar Vagen), stuff like Sufjan Stevens and Wilco and some Death Cab. But the song that really has the power to rendr me speechless is Sigur Ros’ Agætis Bjirun (or however it’s spelled). The piano! The acoustic guitar! The little minor bits! I love this song; I would like it to take up residence in my heart for the rest of my life.
Well, getting tired here, plus I have to take off my makeup so I don’t smudge it all over everything (I hate stage makeup with the passion of a thousand angry bees), so going to retire for now. Will write more tomorrow.
Ciao, all.
