Just consider how terrible the day of your death will be. Others will go on speaking, and you will not be able to argue back.

WHAT A HORRIBLE THOUGHT! D:
Um, yeah, that being said, there's also, bum-bum-bum, SEMINAR AT EVERGREEN
. I've been a little apprehensive of it, in part because, they don't actually explain
what they mean by "seminar" very clearly on the website, (or if they do, it's buried somewhere, which doesn't help). (This, I guess, is one of those times I'm actually glad of my LJ-holicness, 'cos I've found out oodles of things just by watching tesc
.) Anyway. From what people are saying, it's the sort of thing that I would have loved back when, you know, I could talk to people, or if I could put aside enough of my
inhibitions to go and Voice Opinions. Which is easier said than done. But, then again, going off and doing this -- and not failing
-- requires a whole lot of suspension of inhibitions in the first place. Scary. (Of course, I still have no idea if I'm getting in to Evergreen or not. Based on their requirements, and what I've seen, and my GED scores, I ought to. I HAVE TURNED IT INTO A MATTER OF WILLPOWER, AND I HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE.) (Shut up, Ryuutarou. ¬_¬ ) (ACT is next Saturday at Samoana. Gotta figure out how to 1. score ridiculously high on it, and 2. get the scores to Evergreen, um, several months ago.)
I seem to have rated my top three universities according to the not-crap-ness of their website. Evergreen is obnoxious, but easy enough to get around. SOU requires digging, and dates
aren't exactly clear. U of O ... is just ... aaaargh. Their Digital Arts page is nice, but whoever did their Asian Studies (and possibly others, but I haven't looked that
deeply) department page should be keelhauled
. Just sayin'.
.... I wonder if Dir en grey is releasing anything new in the next 800 years or so. Because I do like them so
very much, when
Kyo is not having fits into the mic Clever Sleazoid isn't involved
I ... uh ... like them.... I just want a new single that I could possibly actually enjoy. :xEdit:
In which my tastes in literature are brought down -- or possibly up, depending on how you look at it -- another sixteen points: GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES!
by Dr. and Mr. Dorris Haggis-on-Whey. "Some of the things you will read about giraffes will surprise you. Perhaps so much so that you want to yell these new facts out your bathroom window. If you feel this urge, we encourage you to act on it. No, actually, we don't. We discourage it. Wait. We changed our minds. We do encourage it. You know what? In the end, it's really up to you." Giraffes came from probably Neptune, did you know? On conveyors. (It's like Eddie Izzard only with not as many fucks in.)
