I really love that he knows that I have a "sleepy sigh" and what it means...particularly when I'm unaware of the trait myself.

Poll

I'm writing a final paper for my graduate class on young adult literature, incorporating a blend of theory, practice, surveys, interviews, and more into the paper. I am basing it on the novel Uglies by Scott Westerfeld which I am going to be teaching next semester. I'd love everyone's input, and if you have more insights to give me, please offer them in the comments below. Particularly if you are a teacher or former teacher, I'd love to hear your opinions on the role beauty and perceptions of beauty play within schools nowadays.

Photo meme

I...may have posted this before. But I forgot to do it? Or forgot to post it. Cos hi, the month of May is such a blur now. Anyhow, aside from the graduate class and never ending health woes I've got time on my hands. And I miss photography like mad.

So...

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ/myspace entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life, if you're remotely interested in it.

Also, considering my friends....I'm expecting some random ass requests. Particularly from you, Long'n Brutal.

Stolen from Heather. Figured I could use with a simplistic post right about now.

Anonymously comment with:

One secret.

One compliment.

One non-compliment.

One love note/nice thought.

One piece of hate mail/a reason you like me less.

Lyrics from/to a song.

What you think our relationship level is at.

Where you want our relationsip level to be.

And a hint to who you are.


You don't really have to do the hint as to who you are if you don't want. :P

Paul thoughtful

I'm opening myself up on this one...

You may ask a question, no matter how personal, dirty, or strange, and I will answer honestly. However, if you ask, you must repost this in your journal so others may ask you.

I'm screening comments, and anonymous comments are allowed in case you don't want me to know who you are. :)

Exhaustion

The move was exhausting. I spent most of yesterday half-alive, dealing with a migraine and unbelievable soreness. Today was spent unpacking, and tomorrow will be errands, unfortunately. And work starts on Wednesday, wow.

Spring cleaning, experiments, etc.Collapse )

friends cut

I did a friends cut, finally. And I may do another relatively soon. No offense to anyone I cut, it was probably because I felt like we've drifted apart - you don't read my entries, I don't read yours, or when we do read each other's entries we probably spend much of the time going "huh?" Or maybe we never quite really knew one another. If you want to be re-added, IM me. Hopefully I can keep in touch with some of you via IM.

Also, if you're one of the ones who didn't get cut but you secretly wish you did - let me know. I really won't be offended. Well, okay, I'd be offended if one person wanted to be cut but she already knows that. So, tell me if you want off my list and I'll gladly oblige :)
