I am so ridiculously homesick right now it’s scary.
I’m a solitary person, but I’m not a fan of being completely alone for months on end.
I’m tired of this dumb thesis, I’m tired of this dumb city, and I just want one day free of anxiety attacks.
I’m also freezing cold right now and can’t concentrate.
Is 2011 kicking my ass? It’s certainly trying to.
Sorry my blogs suck.
Sorry I suck.
YAY DORKY FRIENDS!
You guys are super fun. I’m glad we could all hang out one last time before I ditch the wondrous United States for the frigid north.
And the Leibniz-Newton slash? NEEDS TO HAPPEN. I’m going to have some interesting dreams tonight.
Today’s song: Swoon by Imogen Heap
I forgot how awesome you Moscow friends are. We need to have a Rock Band party.
And I need to take my meds at a different time of day.
That is all.
Today’s song: The Underdog by Spoon
Apples to Apples with you guys is superior to Apples to Apples with the grad school crowd. Much more sexual innuendo (though fewer “who invented calculus” arguments). If I hadn’t been feeling like death as soon as I got to the park, the walk to Matt’s would have been much more pleasant, but what are you gonna do?
I’ll miss you all.
Today’s song: Change of Seasons by Sweet Thing
Holy crap, I love you guys. Who needs therapy when you can sit in a dark car with three awesome friends and have a bitch fest about how much all of our lives suck? I’m keeping those videos forever.
Today’s song: Where I’m Going by Cut Copy
WOOOOOOOOOO it’s been awhile since I’ve danced! Maggie, we missed you!
I’ve also been up for a few days and had to do a garage sale this morning, so my brain wasn’t really working. It was also somewhat awkward since I got felt up by some drunk guy during the first half of the first show (“yer sho frrruckkkkhing bootifull!!!!”) and then I saw Jessica (Rob’s old girlfriend) and had a super weird conversation with her. I think she was there with someone else, though, so that’s good.
Yay for fun times with friends. More Rock Band/alcohol/naked parties need to happen in my basement before I return to Finland. :)
Today’s song: Sleepyhead (Matt Sweeny Remix) by Passion Pit
Haha, yay for 4th of July shenanigans. I didn’t take many pictures, but here are a few videos of us being rad.
I love how every time I come back here I make new friends.
Today’s song: Practice Makes Perfect by Cute Is What We Aim For
– Canadian taxes!
– Making Matt sit and wait for me to finish Canadian taxes
– Going downtown to try and find the torch
– Noticing a FREAKING LAPTOP on the train tracks
– Trying to find a way to get said laptop
– Taking DA SKY TRAIN
– Taking DA SKY TRAIN in DA WRONG DIRECTION towards DA END OF DA TRACKS!
– Lots of walking around trying to find the torch
– Finding out the torch was now inside and going to Granville Island instead
– “So come on, come on and doooooo the locomotion with meeeee!”
– ROCK BAND
– Matt getting REALLY into Burnout Paradise (seriously, this was great)
Hooray for Matt being in Vancouver!
Today’s song: I’m Gone, I’m Going by Lesley Roy
And today is a short blog because all we did was dink around.
Edit: and see little kids talk about St. Patrick’s Day puke.
Happy birthday, Aaron!
Today’s song: Yuudachi by Hiromitsu Agatsuma
YAY DRAG SHOW, it’s been way too long. I missed all of you awesome people.
I also missed Shari’s.
I especially missed going to Shari’s with all of you awesome people (+ new friend Nathan!).
I knew I should have brought Claude’s clothes, but by the time the taxi came, it was 4 AM and I’d completely forgotten to pack them. Sorry y’all.
Anyway, it was super fun. We need to hang out again before I leave!
Today’s song: Dancer by Woodhands
So the thrill of the blogs working again came before we all went to dinner for Alyssa’s birthday.
Ben and I made more stats jokes than either of us care to admit.
We continued said stats jokes into a game of Apples to Apples (which I had never played before, but enjoyed very much). Dick Cheney was also referenced several times.
We also discussed Jeremy’s awesomeness, for he speaks to the variables he writes on the whiteboard. I’m not kidding. “Let’s call this one ‘Cself.’ Cself. Cself run. Run, self, run! Can you tell who didn’t get a lot of sleep last night?!”
