sdkgnlsd. I actually really want to buy this, I NEED TO BE RICH YOU GUYS :[

also! new goal: I want to memorize one new poem every month for the rest of this year. individual poems have yet to be decided, but I definitely want to try and do Sweeney Among The Nightingales, Jabberwocky, The Myth of Innocence, and at least one Shakespearean sonnet. I'm probably going to start with the Glück poem, since I memorized it last year for my English poem presentation; it should be easier that way. if I can, I'm going to try and do twelve total poems, but given that I've missed two months already, I'm setting my goal at ten.

I love this dress so much, I wish I could wear it. (and in vaguely related news, if I lost 2" around my waist (and kept my other proportions), I would officially have an hourglass shape. new goal ahoy.)

I'm supposed to go to Ally's today but I feel like crap, so I think I'll be staying home and sleeping. (and speaking of, I would really appreciate sleeping for more than a few hours at a time. hopefully it'll end after this week.)

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
The novel is an epic story narrated by Yunior de Las Casas and chronicles not just the "brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao," an overweight Dominican boy growing up in Paterson, New Jersey and obsessed with science fiction and fantasy novels, with comic books and role-playing games and with falling in love, but also the curse of the "fukú" that has plagued Oscar's family for generations and the Caribbean (and perhaps the entire world) since colonization and slavery.

The middle sections of the novel center on the lives of Oscar's runaway sister, Lola, his mother, Hypatia Belicia Cabral, and his grandfather, Abelard, under the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. Rife with footnotes, science fiction and fantasy references, comic book analogies, various Spanish dialects and hip-hop inflected urban English, the novel is also a meditation on story-telling, the Dominican diaspora and identity, masculinity, the contours of authoritarian power and the long horrifying history of slavery in the New World.

Grace ([livejournal.com profile] improbabilityx) recced this to me a year or so back and I read it while we were in Hawai'i; it is currently one of my favorite books of all time (along with Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and The Great Gatsby), and I'm reccing it because I doubt many people on my flist have read it. I feel like I at one point did a massive quote post of it but now I can't find it and I don't feel like going back upstairs and flipping through the whole book just to find a good one, so instead I present the only quote I found in my trolling of [livejournal.com profile] fehriku:
This is how you treat your mother? she cried. And if I could have I would have broken the entire length of my life across her face, but instead I screamed back, And this is how you treat your daughter?
misters: (glee☀for once in your life)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

when I decided I wanted to switch from [livejournal.com profile] fehriku to something else, [livejournal.com profile] sunshineyes recommended I look at [livejournal.com profile] 1word_1day for ideas. one of the words was "alexithymia," which is defined as
[əlek′sithī′mē·ə, -thim′ē·ə]
an inability to experience and communicate feelings consciously.
Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 8th edition. © 2009, Elsevier.

which I really really liked. sadly, [livejournal.com profile] alexithymia was already taken, but [livejournal.com profile] lexithymia wasn't, and I figured a blog is really using words to express emotions, so.

aka I was being pretentious as always lol.

idk about the color of this but I really like the style. but this and this are just adorable, do want.

how much do I want the ten by ten polaroids omg you guys.

also I have posted this pretty much everywhere, but I got into Willamette with a $10,000 renewable scholarship ♥
misters: (슈주☀been staring way too long)
god I hate MTV shows.

did my oral commentary today and got the last 40ish lines of Joyce's "The Dead" and was like DDDD: at first but then realized as I was going along that hey, I might actually be able to pull this off! and then I did omg. at least, I got 10+ minutes (probably more like 11-12) and Stoner said I was a "very articulate young lady" lol. my organization sucked, as usual, and I should have been more formal, but overall? I am cautiously optimistic. also Nies should stay in his room, I need to do my EE follow-up :|

we had a TOK discussion that ended up being more like a group therapy session lol. it was great. Evans asked what we regretted about high school and I said I regretted not doing newspaper (which I really really do) and he said that there would be some openings next semester on 2-2, so I've figured out my schedule! I just have to talk to Miosi about it now. although I almost started crying when he asked if we would take advantage of going to college and having hardly anyone know us (i.e. would we reinvent ourselves) because I was thinking about how I'd like to present myself much differently and idek, it just made me tear up :/ and then Mic asked me if I was okay and I seriously can't tell if I am that transparent and nobody else cares (more likely, at least the first half, I am bad at being subtle lol) or if he is just crazy observant or something.

we might have a Gatsby prom! and so cute omg
misters: (동방신기☀all I had was my invention)
1) o-oh my god I want it ;___________;

2) my new profile is adorable you guys omg \o/

3) I get all blushy and shivery every time I hear the opening to "All Night Long" (and again during the "I'll take you to my room~" and then Chansung's rap askfgds) aaaah what is my life

4) I...have to write three (short) essays and look up how 12 different places deal with conservation in ≥6 1/2 hours why didn't I kick Claire off the computer sooner fml D:

5) also can I just say that this is pretty much my favorite thing ever why is he so fail all the time ;;
misters: (GG☀everyone's takin everything they can)
my ultimate modcloth wishlist, so pretty much irrelevant to anyone else lol )

also I really want to get this from B&N because I have a giftcard that would work for it but I would probably never use it :/

I have an alumni interview with UChicago! and I don't even have to look nice for it! woohoo!
misters: (shinee☀stfu bitchface)
this is fucking gorgeous and this is so adorable omg.

have I mentioned yet that my mom will be in Vegas for 5 days/4 nights this month? yeahhhh partyyyyyyyy except not because who wants to deal with that mess :|

also 2PM's SPRIS shoot was awful D: however, Chansung and Junho keep getting hotter by like...the second. it is fantastic. fuckyeah2pm posted a pink grandpa picspam :((((((((


I can't stop reading things that I know will make me angry :[
misters: (shinee☀a young brother skinny)
when I saw this I literally went "hoooooooly shiiiiiiiit DO WANT." they would look gorgeous with this pair of back seam tights that have disappeared off MC :[ something like this except more pink, which made them look more sweet than trashy, if that makes sense. seeing shit like this makes me want to lose weight (and yet I spent all day today eating fudge, damn you holiday baking season!). but apparently mom got the ~special version of Wii Fit or something, so I know what I'll be doing over the break lol.

somebody brought up today that this is our last winter break (as high schoolers)—I keep getting these little reminders that I'm not going to be here next year, and it's a really bizarre feeling. I can't wait to get out of high school but I'm also so apprehensive about college, especially given how behind I am in everything.... but I guess we'll see what happens.

and Zhou Mi is so elegant. he's got a really (aristocratic? is that the word I'm looking for?) profile and legs for daaaaaaaaaaaays omg I am such a sucker for long legs ;;

it's really depressing to realize someone doesn't like/trust you nearly as much as you do them.
misters: (stock☀damn straight)
today was kind of poop :/ but I've spent the last hour putting together my modcloth wishlist for christmas, not that I'll be getting any of it. and I've figured out that if I go to mardi gras (unlikely) I'm going to wear this.

god, fuck my life.
misters: (shoebox☀I live for bad puns)
hooooooooooooly shit I want this. also these. even though I never wear that sort of stuff, sigh.

also Natalie Portman is way too hot jfc.

GOD ONE DAY I WILL MAKE A PROPER UPDATE AND IT WILL BE SUPER DEEP AND SHIT. but for now I will make random ones like this.

also, for Katie: this is what I was briefly telling you and Hana about today.

misters: (text☀lol idk)
[livejournal.com profile] lexithymia: do you know how to say zombies in japanese? I feel like this is something you would know.
[livejournal.com profile] evil_gummiworm: it's a katakana adaptation of the english word, to the best of my knowledge.
[livejournal.com profile] lexithymia: that's what I expected, but I thought I'd double check. and did you know that orgasm = orgazamu? apparently those didn't exist in japan before we showed up.
[livejournal.com profile] evil_gummiworm: i've heard that it was a german - oh, no, that's masturbation. which i don't remember the actual word for. but it's german.
[livejournal.com profile] lexithymia: the germans came up with masturbation? will have to remember to thank them for that.
[livejournal.com profile] evil_gummiworm: can that be the quote of the day?

also seriously Katie I am going to buy this for you for your 18th because it would look SO GOOD on you.
misters: (소녀시대☀oh baby don't you know)
holy shit I want this. I'm honestly debating whether or not I want to buy it because I get the feeling it wouldn't look good on me but on the other hand omg so cute.

um also Zach and I are officially dating now.
