SF: Entry #34

So much nothing to say. Homework is cumbersome. It’s funny to watch Buffy with Chad. There is something about it that reminds me of hanging out with Sixpence. Sixpence always notices when someone wears New Rock boots. Likewise, Chad always points out when Xander wear Diesel. He went as far to mention that the clothing [...]

Skipped game today to do homework. Still not done with it. It’s 12:30. And I still haven’t been able to crack open Harry Potter. When am I going to get up to speed on this reading Latin thing? Yeah, you can say “it’s only been 7 weeks,” but I can say “it’s the expectation that [...]

Today was chock full of ups and downs. How to cash a money order in San Francisco: 1) try several banks; however, they will not cash it 2) sign the money order over to a friend that works at a bank 3) wait for friend to tell you that they wouldn’t cash it without your [...]

SF: Entry #31

Tonight was the best convivium so far. It was about Greek theater and music. The lector started by going over some snippets of ancient plays, including satire. He then showed photos of art depicting musicians and actors. He concluded by playing some music tracks, most of which I was actually familiar with in some way [...]

Cool

Some friends of mine are going to Scotland for the Edinburgh Tattoo, and the following link is a clip of a recent gig (they are dressed oddly because they have already shipped their uniforms). At 0:37 they start a song I really like, “Clumsy Lover,” (and I like in general; this may be the first [...]

Ok, I bought the Harry Potter book today out of fear that if I didn’t read it ASAP everyone who had read it would spoil it. Hann said that people have already been spoiling it on WoW. He said it was human nature to spoil things for other people. It was sitting by the checkout [...]

SF: Entry #29

Random crap: Animals are not accessories. They don’t below in purses, they don’t need to match your outfit. I am actually a bit disgusted at some of the dogs I’ve seen around the neighborhood, kinda like seeing that fetal pig in the biology lab, just an ick factor. I have seen dogs bred to stand [...]

WTF

I was searching for De Mulieribus Claris by Giovanni Boccaccio on Amazon and when searching the author’s name it came up with a Caddie Woodlawn book. I guess some illustrator has the same name, but it totally threw me for a moment.

SF: Entry #28

Tomorrow is the midterm, which is the last grammar exam. Monday we start prose and poetry reading. Today was the last quiz. The last day for daily disappointment. My ego is the size of a dried pea. At least in this form it can last a while in the pantry, and maybe some day I [...]

I’m beginning to think that I am a bumbling idiot. I can’t think of any other reason why the majority of my class is doing remarkably well and I am working 4 hours a night just to squeeze out a C. What’s more humiliating is that everyday they put people’s quizzes on their desks face [...]

I had my best quiz in weeks today, but it wasn’t enough to warrant a sticker. They starting using stickers about the time I started struggling. I have yet to receive one. That means I have yet to score an “A” on a quiz or test since they starting using them. *le sigh*

Saturday, we went to the Asian Art Museum. Sunday was game, at which we consumed too my dried fruit from Trader Joe’s that kicked our guts. Today was another drowsy day at school with tummy-rot hangover. I had this thought. In English, a noun is a noun. We don’t decline nouns so that they have [...]

My exam kicked my ass. I had confused one particular vocab word that happened to be a disproportionately large part of the exam. I’m almost just went home after class, but a classmate convinced me to stay for the convivium. It was fun, but no one wanted to do anything afterward. Potential spoilers below… Last [...]

My friends are sweet. Without even knowing that I had developed a mental rant in preparation to blog today about how grotesque I am, they emailed to say I was fabulous. So I will forgo the rant. In the morning we had an exam. Same as always. I do think some of the other students [...]

Need to catch up, don’t I? I finally posted more photos. Sunday, we played Changeling. It’s fun to have a regular game. Monday was a regular day at class. I have started jotting down funny quotes that come out of class. When talking about irregular verbs, the TA1 explained that a certain verb was “not [...]

Bedtime Saturday… Friday, we had another convivium. Afterward, the tea party hostess and I went to see Rataouille (along with several of her housemates). It was quite cute, and I would recommend it as much as any Pixar. Chad and Hann have been catching up on the Harry Potter movies, preparing for this coming Friday, [...]

Hmm, got a low “B” on my exam. Getting a “B” in the class. I guess it’s good I’m taking it pass/fail. I feel like I’m working hard already, so I’m not sure how I could improve things. Chad purchased the BBC/David Attenborough series “Planet Earth”, and it’s hard not to watch it. Sorry so [...]

Happy Independence Day! Happy Birthday, Bill! Sorry for slacking on the blog. Last I wrote, it was Sunday night. Monday, we had a quiz on an overload of material we covered in class on Friday. In general, everyone’s quiz was so bad that the instructor decided to go over the quiz in class. We then [...]
