I finished the first day of my exam today, whoohoo! It bothers me that I got the last question wrong for sure (no, self, lambda can't be larger than one when it's a proportion, omgfuuuuuuu ;;;; I don't know what the correct answer is, but I know for certain that I'm 100% wrong X3;;;;), but whatever, it's done and over with! I didn't think I could sit still for more than six hours (I ended up taking around seven hours), but I managed to override my urge to just put my head down and take a nap in the middle of the exam. Tomorrow is going to be just as terrifying, but at least it'll be a shorter day! And then, one more day on Thursday, and assuming I pass all of the parts (omg, do not want to take quant again or an econ course D:) this should be my last exam ever! \o/

My collaborators are all like, can you do this and this? Oh, right, you have comps -- do them after comps, okay? And I'm all like, D: D: I want a break D: I still need to email a couple of people and tell them that I'm going to Europe and won't have internet access. X3

Also: Thanks to whomever sent me the anonymous gift! The notification was the first email I read this morning and it definitely made me feel much better before my exam -- so, awesome timing, whomever you are ♥♥!

Also-also: This Castiel-meets-the-Ghostfacers video is hilarious -- even if you're not fan of either Castiel or the Ghostfacers, the video is worth a watch. ;)

Also-also-also: I'm listening to the new Super Junior album and it's delightful ♥ And the album cover? Is lolarious~ (oh, Siwon~~~ XDD)

1. I see that LJ still hasn't addressed the reposting to Facebook/Twitter issue. I won't repost if you won't.

2. There's this big apartment building across from our residence building, and back in August, when I looked out our living room window, I could see what looked like a neon open sign on an upper floor balcony. I said jokingly to my suitemate S., "I'll bet there's a hooker living there and that's the 'Open for Business' sign, so that customers know when to go up." (This is not a far-fetched theory! Rumours say that there are many prostitutes living in that building.) Today, S. looked out the window and noted that we haven't seen the lit-up sign for a while now. I immediately thought to myself, It's because hooker!Jensen has given up the trade since he's met student!Jared who is the love of his life and now they are living happily ever after and the neon open sign will never light up again! This may be an indication to cut back on the J2 AUs. ;;;;

3. SPN Season 6 Trailer, eee♥
very brief reaction, cut for the super-spoiler-phobes )
I AM EXCITE.

3.5 Inception has finally loosened its claws on me, so now I can divert some attention back to SPN (but I've been in more of a J2 mood lately, idk). I'm not sure if the trailer was for the first two (three?) episodes, or just the first episode; either way, I do hope next week's episode won't disappoint. *crosses fingers*

4. I started yoga classes today. I have a feeling I'm going to be hurting in strange places tomorrow. X3

5. School officially started yesterday -- not that it ever really ended for me (eta: ahaha, this comic says it all. fml /o\), but two classes (and a half? and the weekly seminars), two TA sessions, and two research projects means a lot less slacking on my part. nrrrghhhh

6. Will play comment-catch-up tomorrow. Time to sneak in a teeny bit of fic reading (yes, I suck at being productive, shut up) and then go to bed. I almost fell asleep during the final relaxation period during yoga (I don't know why I was so sleepy! I even took a nap in my office earlier today. ;;;)

1. My friend gave me this really awesome strawberry dangly thing:


'But what is it?' you ask. )

2. Supernatural anime trailer
My shallow side thinks it's a shame that they went for such a harsh style for the art. I wasn't hoping for sparkly eyes and floating flowers or anything, but characters in shounen anime can still be pretty! *eyes Prince of Tennis* (or even Eyeshield21! or Whistle! the list goes on!) Yeah, yeah, I'm one of those people who think Dean should look like a bishounen. But even if you don't agree with me on that point, you have to agree that this is a terrible design for John Winchester (Mary looks pretty good, if a bit on the young side -- especially compared to John!). Complaints aside, though, I'm still looking forward to the anime. ;)

3. I'm going to go gorge myself on extra-butter popcorn now. I have a feeling my stomach won't thank me when it gets coated in a thick layer of buttery oil. Mmm, buttery oil. :>

1. I've been feeling nostalgic for SGA lately -- I think I'll download all of the seasons (with the exception of Season One, which I own, and Season Five, which was a pretty terrible season other than a handful of awesome episodes) and watch random episodes during lunch. I also want to re-listen to some of my favourite SGA podfics. :>:>

2. And speaking of podfics: as I was walking back from the movie theatre with my friend S, she expressed her desire to be a voice actor (note: her dream vocation changes every week ;)) -- she explained how she loved to read aloud when she was younger. I suggested she could record audiobooks (she had no idea they existed ;;;) and as we were discussing this, I kept on thinking about podfics and how recording them is a really awesome hobby. Though S is a close friend, I just couldn't imagine explaining fanfiction to her -- and the thought of her stumbling across my recordings is kind of, well, mortifying. X3

3. This is the cutest video ever. The kitty! Demanding the puppy to lick its ear! Omg the cute at 0:25 aldsfjal;fj♥!

4. Happy Canada Day! █ ♥ █

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♥

Also, there was this one time back in second year where my housemates and I played that song over and over for about a week. ;;;

I chose to do my readings in the kitchen today, with the sliding door wide open so that I could absorb as much of the spring weather as possible. The sound of someone playing a piano drifted in as my mind drifted off (fMRI studies? really aren't my thing X3;;). The following doodle!comic was inspired by this event.

On a related note, see Jensen actually sing and play guitar here. *_____* ♫♪~ (JENSEN ACKLES, HOW ARE YOU SO AWESOME?)

1. Upstairs!opera-singer-wannabe? Please stop singing. :( (Or at least have the decency to use a music room that are apparently available in the building?) You sound like a 鬼. D:

2. My bamboos, Bruno and Boots, were teeny when I first bought them. And then they grew a bit. And look at them now! :D

\o/ )

3. This is my lovely cheat sheet that I made for my stats midterm (there's a back side, too). I didn't even get to use half of the stuff I recorded, but that's probably a good thing because I really didn't understand the proofs we did in class.

4. Vid rec! SPN, Wincest, awesome use of show footage, and just kind of breathtakingly beautiful. Also, some of the most gorgeous shots of Dean. *___* Link: here.

5. I'm not much of a fan of Genevieve Cortese's acting, but she's kind of adorable-like in her I-don't-have-a-Twitter vid. Speaking of Genevieve, did she and Jared get married already? I recall a rumour of a February wedding...

6. I'm surprised at how often people confused "loose" for "lose". I just finished reading a Sam/Dean fic that was quite well-written except for the fact that the author didn't seem realize that "lose" (losing, loser) was a word and consistently used "loose" (loosing, looser) instead. My surprise mostly stems from the fact that "lose" (and its variations -- "loser", especially) appears to be the more commonly used word -- and plus, everyone knows how to spell "lost" correctly, right?

7. The Psych-out from 4x14: oh, Lassiter, you are too sexy for your gun. ♥

eta 8. I know I'll forget to mention it when the day comes (because I do every year), but in less than a week, this journal will be three years old. And in less than a month, my old journal (which I do go back periodically to check the flist) will be seven years old. That means I've spent nearly a third of my life in varying states of LJ-addiction. Wow. X3

So I finally caved an watched it during dinner today. It was rather...disappointing, as an episode and especially as a show finale.
But speaking of SGA-related things, Joe Flanigan's appearance on The Jace Hall show was hilariously cute (hee, potty mouth), and aldf;j, when is Joe going to take up another acting role? I miss seeing him on screen. :<

SPN 4x21
Eeeeep lskdfja;sd eeeeep *insert wild flaily movements* season finale next week i don't think my heart can take it adl;fjs;jl
(I was sitting on my bed watching this episode, and I was seriously making "eek" and "meep" noises while clutching at my blanket.)

1. My parents are doing renovations on the upper floor of our house and my room looks like it's been hit by a tornado. Of course they decide to finally get on with the renovations right before I move back home. >__o

2. I just finished watching Slumdog Millionaire with my parents. This is the first movie I've watched in a long time (I'm not counting Antique Bakery, the Korean movie version, because I'd only watched half and then lost interest. How did my attention span become so short??). Slumdog Millionaire was pretty good -- the cinematography was great and I loved the colours. But I wasn't at all drawn in by the love story plotline, possibly because I found Latika a weak character from beginning to end (and Jamal totally wasn't as interesting of a character as his brother was).

3.
Guess who finally caught up to the latest episode of SPN! \o/ And it only took me three months ;;; -- compared to, say, [livejournal.com profile] postingwhore who can zip through one-and-a-half seasons of a show in two days, heh. ;) I can't wait until the next episode, eee~ *wiggles in anticipation*

4. I'm too sleepy to provide photos for point 1 and to expand on points 2 and 3, so I will leave you all with the following link: Baseball mascots dancing to Sorry Sorry -- how cute is that??
