True, but that by no means makes it easier.

Ah, Spring Break, that magical time when classes cease to exist and students pretty do crazy shit all the time. OK, let’s be honest, I didn’t do any super crazy shit, but were you really thinking I would? I did, however, do quite a few things I don’t normally do. Let’s take a look back at my Spring Break.

Onwards! )

Now that I’ve written more than I need to for that 8 page paper, I will bid everyone a fond farewell. I hope your Spring Breaks were fun and that your remaining school goes by easily.

So, I guess it's comforting to know that I get midterm burnout the same if I'm in a foreign country.

Yeah, ok not comforting, but really, really, hideously depressing. Seriously, this is the worst I've felt since I've been here, even with the roommate situation and the first few days I cried myself to sleep. I'm half-sick, exhausted, beat-up, almost broke, and just generally weary. But I can't take the weekend off because I have a take-home midterm, which is kind of the equivalent of a ten page paper in Italian, due Wednesday and a massive Art History midterm spread over Tuesday and Thursday. Yes, it's that big. So I have to find some way to work past my burnout and get all this done, without losing my mind completely.

Yeah, like that's going to happen.

I'll try to be more cheerful next time.

I have decided that I am going to attempt to survive the weekend without a trip to the Bancomat (ATM) or any use of money besides cash. What this means in practical terms is that I have precisely, yes, I counted, 6.07 Euro to cover food, transportation, and other expenses. (Technically, I have 16.07, but since the three-day Museo Nazionale ticket costs 10, I'm not including that.)

This should be interesting. Can I go three days without a caffe latte from Good or Friends or a panino from Delfino? We shall see.

Well, that pretty much sums it up, now doesn't it? Honestly, if you're going to go out every single night and get drunk, often to the point of not remembering the next day, could you please do you temperate roommates a favor and FUCKING REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR FUCKING KEY WITH YOU!?!? Last night, technically this morning at 2:45, was the fourth time in three weeks I've had to let a drunk roommate back in. Today, said drunk proceeded to try to do sometime with the stove but she was too drunk to successfully turn it on.

Charmingly enough, said roommates, there are three who are like this, are obnoxious enough with their exploits that Elysia, friend from Med/Ren and TA, to be explained later, was able to narrow down to two, out of six, roommates when I referred to one as "my roommate the whore". Good work, ladies, I hope you realize you're the reason ND warns us against bringing Italian boys back to our rooms because they'll steal our stuff. Fucking whores.

On the bright side, I get to write a 13-15 paper on VIRGIL!!!! Yay Virgy! I'm totally excited and have already created an outline. Yay Virg! Also, I don't have class Monday until 2:15 this week so I can stay up a bit to watch the Super Bowl. AND, I'm going to a Julius Caesar show Tuesday, which will also be awesome.

So, apart from the whores I live with, who also are seemingly incapable of doing their dishes, life's not too bad right now. I'm really missing my Diet Mountain Dew, but have finally found someplace that sells Diet Pepsi (Pepsi Lite here), so at least I have some carbonated caffeine. I know I'm not the best at this blogging thing, but I WILL try to be better.

Oh, yeah, it's totally in the 50s here, sorry.

"He'll be the small shriveled green one WITH A LIGHTSABER!!!!!" ~Asajj Ventress

Best. Description. Of. Yoda. EVER!

"Do, ah, you have any idea what the general is talking about?" ~Clone trooper

Does anyone ever understand Yoda's mind?

Toydarians!! Wattos!!!! Yay for Anakin's non-affected-by-Jedi-mind-tricks owner from TPM!

"Look, little green lifeform!" "You buckethead! That's the Jedi." ~Two battle droids


Oh, Yoda, only you could successfully meditate in the middle of a blasterfight.

REALLY?!? We get TWO episodes tonight? YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yoda, you're so awesomely kick-ass! I <3 you a lot.

And now, Yoda's meditating with Toydarian swallows. Could you be more awesome if you tried? I don't think so.

"HOW are we going to make things worse?" ~Clone trooper

"Anakin, where are you?" ~Obi-Wan Kenobi

Oh, Obs, could you possibly be more aware of what Anakin's reallllly up to?

OMFG! Who knew battle droids hummed to themselves?

Sarah Palin vs. Joe Biden

Ala Cusine!!

~9:04: "It's nice to be with you"?, JB, that's an awkward choice of words.

~9:05: Nice connection to the average American SP

~9:06: "obsessive partisanship"? ouch, SP

~9:08: second reference to the blue collar workers in less than ten minutes SP

~9:08: first 'maverick' SP

~9:10: "Joe Six-pack and hockey moms"? In the SAME sentence? Whoa...that's pulling no punches, SP

~9:11: JB, are you going to say anything about Obama, or just beat on McCain?

~9:12: Yes, JB, because you get your gas at a station like that.

~9:14: Another “American people” reference! SP

~9:15: I like your shoes, SP. Yes, I’m that shallow.

~9:16: “John”, JB? Hmm, that seems a bit demeaning

~9:17: SP referred to herself and her family as “middle-class”, let the bashing begin.

~9:18: SP just linked Obama’s government-run health care plan with the current mess in D.C., pretty smart

~9:19: JB just referenced Scranton, OMG it’s The Office!

~9:21: “Bridge to Nowhere”!

~9:22: “Characterize”, JB? At least McCain had problems with a difficult word.

~9:23: SP just insinuated Obama flip-flops!

~9:24: SP really hammering her experience in Alaska home, but, then I suppose, she really needs to do that

~9:26: It’s good she would have supported more stringent bankruptcy qualifications. If you’re stupid enough to overextend your resources, you don’t deserve a ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ card

~9:32: Hmm, just realized JB keeps calling SP “Governor Palin”, not “Sarah Palin” in an attempt to degender the debate

~9:37: Was that a Freudian slip, JB? “We should be granted…Same-sex couples should be granted”

~9:42: “Your plan is a white flag of surrender”!!!!! That’s priceless, SP!!

~9:47: Ahmadinejad is neither sane nor stable at anytime, and “The Castro Brothers” sounds like a bad boy band.

~9:51: “Sssppaaaain” JB

~9:53: JB, could you please not refer to yourself in the third person. You’re not a Gand.

~9:58: Hey, JB, you don’t need to repeat everything, that’s what the media’s for.

~10:03: “Washington outsider”! SP

~10:06: Are they trying to outdo each other with the size of their flag pins?

~10:06: Urm, SP, dude? I don’t think we won Vietnam, just a thought.

~10:09: “Maverick”!! And this time, SP called herself one as well.

~10:10: Yes, JB, I believe you spend soooo much time at Home Depot.

~10:16: Oh God, not Cheney’s opinion of the Office of the VP as a shadowy fourth branch. It’s too funny.

~10:18: “Heartland of America”, you just keep shoving your middle-classness down our throats, don’t you, SP?

~10:21: MAVERICK! Twice in one minute!

~10:28: Hey, SP, maybe you should name these tickets, not just make allusions.

All in all, I thought it was a good debate, neither side did anything stupid. It basically just reinforced everything we already knew.

Oh, Dear

I'm watching ROTS on Spike and it hasn't even been on for an hour and I'm feeling that heart-achy pain in my chest, wibbly chin, and slightly watery eyes.

I thought I would be ok, after all the movie has been out for almost three years now, and it's not like I don't know the story inside and out, but apparently not.

Now my eyes are so watery, my contacts have gone all unfocused. And Palpatine hasn't even brought up the Dark Side with Anakin. Clearly, I'm doomed. My computer probably has only about ten minutes before it's damp.


EDIT: Oh, God, Mace has just confronted Palpatine, I have to change channels, I can't do this tonight.

So, at about 5 today I decided to go to LaFortune to get something, namely pizza, to eat for dinner. Sarah asked me to pick up some Burger King for her, so I headed over. When I got back, Katherine and Christine, roommate from last year, were waiting for me, looking very serious. They said they needed to talk to me about something and asked if I could go to Christine's room. We went, and then they tell me to sit down, something a bit worrisome. Then they tell me that Mandy, Christine's current roommate, a friend of mine, who stayed up with me when I thought I might have a concussion even though her boyfriend was in town, had gotten the news that her father had died. From a mother-fucking massive heart attack.

God DAMN it! What the hell is up with this week?!?! Yesterday, I watched "Ugly Betty" with Sarah in which a character also died from a massive heart attack. I don't need this right now, I've worked very hard at internalizing everything. I just don't need or want to deal with this now, ok I probably do need to deal with it, but I'm avoiding that as long as I can.

Shit. That's all I can say right now. Shit, shit, shit.
