dar - end of the summer
New plan:

Graduate a semester early and go work for Google and make tons of money and never ever go back to the high-pressure you-are-never-good-enough-for-your-arrogant-cs-professors world of an academic program like Cornell.

Monday, October 29th 2007, 2:46 am - i'm still here, really
dar - end of the summer
So my livejournal life looks pretty empty.

Real life = school. That’s pretty much it. Developments in the personal life may be discussed in some future friends-locked entry, but probably not, given that I barely have time to have a personal life, much less to write about it.

Phonetics prelim tomorrow...today...in 9 hours....ohhhh still plenty of time left to study. Including “performance exercise.” My poor roommates. Believe me, I hope the strange noises will be gone after tomorrow too.
Monday, September 24th 2007, 6:52 pm - sudafed
dar - end of the summer
for future reference: taking massive amounts of sudafed causes one to gain weight, become way overhydrated, and therefore renders one’s body comps at the nutritionist completely meaningless/useless. blahhhh.

dar - end of the summer
Sooo I was lying in my bed with the lights off, just trying to sleep... reasonable thing to be doing after midnight... when I felt something brush against the side of my face. I thought of course I was imagining it, but because I have an irrational fear of creepy crawly things, I turned on the light next to my bed just to be sure nothing was there. And OHMYGOD. Giant black ugly grasshopper-thing on my pillow. OHMYGOD. Jennie and Sarah saved me and caught it in a cup and took it outside. Thank goodness they were still awake. I don’t know how much sleeping I will be doing tonight, however....

So i’ve been approved to go back to school this fall. Time to try my junior year again. Hopefully it will go better this time.
Wednesday, January 10th 2007, 12:14 am - felted bag!
dar - end of the summer
I start teaching knitting classes next week for the knitting store. The Monday class is mittens (still haven't received the pattern for that yet...lol). Tuesday class is this felted bag:



The main color is actually navy blue, but I guess my camera sucks.
Tuesday, October 17th 2006, 7:24 pm - don't let this be me 30 years from now
dar - end of the summer
I know a couple; she sits in a rocking chair
Working puzzles; he watches TV upstairs.
She's got a secret she has never let out;
A man she thinks he never knew about.

She hasn't seen him in thirty years.
The mention of his name doesn't bring on tears.
If you ask her, "Are there any regrets?"
She'll tell you, "No," but she never forgets.

It was the kind of love you never recover from.
Even though she found another one
To take his place,
She never will escape the truth.

At times like this when the moon is right,
When the air is foggy like it is tonight,
She'll think about what might have been
If she had just held on to him.

I know a man who has done it all;
He has sailed the oceans; climbed the mountains of Nepal.
He lives high upon the avenue
With a beautiful wife, lovely children, too.

But there's a woman he still dreams about;
Certain things he has learned to live without.
If you ask him, "Are there any regrets?"
He'll tell you, "No," but he never forgets.

It was the kind of love you never recover from.
Even though he found another one
To take her place,
He never will escape the truth.

At times like this when the moon is right,
When the air is foggy like it is tonight,
He'll think about what might have been
If he had not let her slip away from him.

I read about a woman who said she never regretted anything she'd ever done.
Such arrogant words always seem to be spoken by those who then die young.

So here am I looking at you.
Oh, tell me, what are we gonna do?
Am I destined to be your regret?
Are you that one I'll never forget?

Years from now, will we curse the day
You let me let you walk away?
Isn't this too dear a price to pay
For the freedom of going separate ways?

This is the kind of love you never recover from.
Don't tell me that I'm gonna find another one
To take your place,
I never will escape the truth.

At times like this when the moon is right,
When the air is foggy like it is tonight,
I'll think how sweet life could be
If you would stay with me, oh stay with me.

This is the kind of love you never recover from.
Don't tell me that I'm gonna find another one
To take your place,
And try to face the truth.

Let me hold you close tonight.
The fog has lifted, the moon is so bright.
Think how sweet life could be
If you would stay with me, oh, stay with me.

This is the kind of love you never recover from.
This is the kind of love you never recover from
Friday, October 13th 2006, 11:05 am - broken things
dar - end of the summer
You can have my heart
It isn't new
It's been used and broken
And only comes in blue

It's been down a long road
It got dirty on the way
If I give it to you will you make it clean
And wash the shame away

You can have my heart
If you don't mind broken things
You can have my life
If you don't mind these tears
I heard that you make old things new
So I give these pieces all to you
If you want it, you can have my heart

So beyond repair
Nothing I could do
Tried to fix it myself, but it was only worse
When I got through

Then you walk right into my darkness
And you speak words so sweet
And you hold me like a child till my frozen tears
Fall down at your feet

You can have my heart
If you don't mind broken things
You can have my life
If you don't mind these tears
I heard that you make old things new
So I give these pieces all to you
If you want it, you can have my heart

Today (even more so than the last two days) was possibly the most difficult day of my life, so this was a nice surprise.

Apparently there is internet here, but I will only have access occasionally.
