fishpatrol: (imma gonna eat your spicy brainz)
*Met with my supervisor today -- he said that my idea is good and that I'm on the right track and I am so very yay :D about this. \o/

*I going to spend today and tomorrow grading midterms. Hopefully I can get all of them done before I go home for the weekend.

*This weekend, I'm going to:
-read the books on my Kindle that [livejournal.com profile] lilie_charlotte kindly converted for me
-scribble out a plan for the J2 comic I talked to [livejournal.com profile] cantarina1 about
-go jogging
-work a bit on my project and have a study or two planned out
-maybe record something for [livejournal.com profile] amplificathon
-watch TV \o/ (finish up on S2 of Burn Notice, watch a few more episodes of Castle, start Fringe and True Blood -- when did I become such a TV junkie?)
-be a complete and utter hermit until Tuesday :D

*The Slash Fangirl's Guide To Real Life -- this is hilarious. And given that I keep my slashery ways a secret from 98% of people IRL, I can relate to most of the scenarios. (the 2% of people IRL that do know about my fandom life? I met them through LJ first. ;))

*The Year of the Teague Spammage -- Jensen as Jason Teague from Smallville. I've never watched Smallville and don't really have any inclination to do so, but man, Jensen looks great (and by "great" I mean "omnomnom-worthy"). Maybe I should download just the Jason-centric episodes...

fishpatrol: (how *you* doin')
So, here's the thing: what does it mean to "be yourself" or to "stay true to yourself"?

I'm working on a project relating to self-concept and negative mood and I think I'm being supraliminally primed to think about the self all the time now (and I also blame my causeless negative mood from this week on supraliminal priming).

Anyway, back on track. The problem with the whole "be yourself" thing is that the self is made of multiple components. In particular, I'm thinking of the self-discrepancy theory, where there is an ideal-self (which consists of your dreams and aspirations), an ought-self (duties, obligations, what others expect of you), and your actual self. I've currently found myself in a bit of a conundrum: my ideal-self and my ought-self agree on the course of action I should take, while my actual self would prefer (based on past experience and general behavioural tendencies) to take an entirely different path.

Sitcoms usually aren't full of life-lessons, but I thought Jeff Winger's line from yesterday's episode of Community -- "Do you try to evolve or do you try to know what you are?" -- was somewhat profound (and highly relevant as he was attempting to make a choice between being someone he aspires to be or being who he actually is -- haha, well, that's an awkwardly phrased sentence. I'm sure you get the gist of it).

In less thinky-thought news:
-I got a haircut (you know who else needs a haircut? Sam Winchester. I hope for the return of floppy bangs in S6!) and new glasses
-I have no idea where May went (what the heck have I been doing for the past few weeks?)
-I really want to take a vacation (and everyone in my program says I should get away while I can!). My ideal vacation would involve a private island --or even a deserted island would do, as long as there's wi-fi-- with Rodney, Rella, and maybe Shel. The Macbook, iPod, and Kindle, respectively. ;)
-I'm half way through Burn Notice (if any of you watch White Collar, Psych, and Burn Notice, you have to watch these crossover ads -- Fiona hiding her weapons from Peter! Neal flirting with Gus! \o/)
-I have the first two episodes of Fringe and Castle downloaded, just waiting to be watched. Oh, TV♥

S: This is an organic dried fig, with no added sulfur.
Me: What? Sulfur?
S: Yeah, dried figs normally have sulfur in them.
Me: DEMONIC FIGS \o\

I can't believe I didn't know about this site before! Eee♥~

And these! Awesome looking food! That you can't eat! I don't know whether to cry or to squee.

Who makes a hotter Wonder Woman:

Bones or  Sheldon ?

1. I currently have this picture as the wallpaper for my iPod Touch. Every time I turn on my iPod, my brain stops and stutters a bit while I ogle. (Ahaha, oh, self *facepalm*). Also, speaking of iPods, I just upgraded to 3.0 last night and now I find out there's a 3.1.3. What. D:

2. Yesterday, for the entire day, the only time I wasn't feeling hungry was when I was eating. I was practically starving, in between meals. It was the weirdest thing ever (and also, extremely uncomfortable).

3. I keep losing track of what day it is. I blame the lack of structured classes (which I don't mind) and all the TV shows that I follow going on hiatus (which I do mind).

4. Mac-savvy flisters: if I have a Time Machine full of files and programs from a Macbook running Leopard and I'm getting a Macbook that runs Snow Leopard, should I transfer only the files and then reinstall each program individually? Would it be a bad idea to transfer third-party applications like Firefox through migration assistant (so that I can retain all my settings and history? Mostly, I just want the history)?

5. How awesomely adorable is this?? Also, new Maru video, eee♥

The flist is slow tonight. It's because you're all out doing fun things on a Friday night, isn't it? Rather than sitting in front of a computer, wondering what things you can do to procrastinate more before you absolutely have to start working on your project.

The rest of you I-sit-at-home-and-twiddle-my-thumbs-on-Friday-nights!losers (I say that that with the utmost affection), link me to your favourite procrastination!sites. Here, I'll start:

I was trawling through cracked.com (instead of studying math because math ceased to be fun when the symbols outnumbered the numbers) and came across these two gems:

1. At some colleges, Quidditch is a real sport: College Quidditch. According to the founder, the Snitch is recreated by sticking a tennis ball into a sock and hanging it from the waistband of a cross-country runner. They...just...I can't even...*flails with fits of giggles*

2. Re-use your dog's hair! Sweaters and vests made from the hair shed off by pet dogs -- it's kind of ingenious...yet, at the same time, a teeny bit gross.
Speaking of which, I shed a lot -- back in the dorms, the vacuum cleaner broke because there were too many hairballs on my carpet. Wonder if I could crochet a scarf from my hair... >__O


On an unrelated note, I really want to buy this nifty little thing. Have any of you guys tried ebook readers? Are they really less straining on the eyes?

I'm a bit wary of ordering things from the States (or from anywhere outside of Canada, really) 'cause the last time I bought a set of DVDs from Ebay, I was slapped with a customs charge that was higher than the cost of the DVDs. :| I can't find anything online that tells me how custom fees are applied and how much extra to expect to pay. I used to buy manga from Ebay and various sellers on LJ and I was never charged taxes or customs fees, but I suspect it's because sellers labelled their packages as "gifts".
