featuring dj hunnicutt
This is the new year (somehow, already, ridiculously), and I want this year to be the year that I've been waiting for. Somehow, all of this family drama and self-loathing is getting really old and I really do have very high hopes for 2008. I want to write a book and eat breakfast every day and never drink coffee ever ever ever again and drink tea in the mornings even when I feel like I don't have time and smile when I look in the mirror. I will actively seek out happy, beautiful things, and I will write my labs in a moleskine graph notebook just because. I will not take my christmas lights down. I will say, "NO I CANNOT JOIN YOUR COMMITTEE!" when I really don't want to join a committee. I will keep in touch (or get back in touch) with the people I love because really what is more important? I will bring my sonicare up to school because my roommates know me well enough by now to understand that oral health is simply more important to me than not being a dork and besides they love me already anyway ahahaha.

These are my resolutions, and if along the way I end up losing ten pounds or exercising every day or doing my homework the first night it is assigned or whatever else I always forget by mid-February then that's AWESOME, I miss being a size eight. But if there is one thing I have learned from 2007 it is that sometimes really shitty things happen, and the only thing you have control over is whether you drink tea and eat oranges or whether you stay up late hating your life. Tea and oranges are my two favorite things in life and 2008 is going to be so filled with them that there won't be room for anything else unless I want it.

ps i am going to also try to be a more active livejournaller. also i really would like to begin doing my homework more than five minutes in advance of collection. happy new year everyone!! <3

I am getting very antsy with this journal lately and I'm not sure whether it has to do with teapot_yo in specific or livejournal in general. I have secured a new journal name just in case. More on this later.

Hum hum I'm going home tomorrow afternoon thank goodness. The last month or so has been the most ridiculous of my life, but most of that is all bad things and I am not going to talk about it because the bad is pretty much over. Other:

1. Apparently now my favorite/only shows are America's Next Top Model and Project Runway; I make no apologies.
2. Apparently now I also like TS Eliot. I actually lead discussion groups about the Four Quartets now. Last year I basically spent a semester writing fifty pages of what basically amounted to libelous diatribes against the man and now I am leading groups. Although in my defense I have never said anything terrible about the Four Quartets.
3. Because I can't ever do anything right ever, I am now working my way through a book of Sappho's poetry, and I am not going to lie and tell you that the reason doesn't have anything to do with how she was born on Lesbos. I found her through doing research on TS Eliot and then in turn finding that Ezra Pound was interested in her. It makes me wish that I knew every language ever, and particularly Greek, although reading translation notes is almost the same. I actually am really, really enjoying working my way through this. I am reading If Not, Winter, translated by Anne Carson. If your library carries it I highly recommend it.
4. Declared a minor, finally: EARTH SCIENCE FTW
5. I think in January I'm going to begin working at Borders to ~supplement my income~; I am over my rage at the necessity of this occurrence and am getting pretty excited about it I suppose. Next fall I have been promised an office job, which means that hopefully this will be my last part-time retail job in a while. (I HAVE HAD MY FILL.)
6. I have the cutest desk ever, no doubt.

harry potter what the FUCK even was going ON is all i have to say about THAT

harry potter five (LMAO at one point i called it HPV and my sister was like "....HUMAN PAPILLOMA VIRUS??") is the new pirates of the caribbean two ("o hai guys all of a sudden my head's a crab COOL RITE")

it's three in the morning and i want the last three hours of my life back. but ohhh goodness it is, i suppose, worth noting that i still love remus lupin more than any fictional character ever.

i am ninety percent sure that almost all of my significant problems would go away if i weren't so jealous about everything and if i didn't take everything so seriously.

i mean holy cow, what am i even doing with my life.

sooooo basically my paid account just expired, and i decided it'd be easier to renew it -- even though i didn't particularly see a great need to -- than to sort through thirty-seven userpics and pick my six favorites. GOD I AM GOING TO PERISH PENNILESS. (but it doesn't sound so bad when you say it like that, does it? :D )

also, i don't know how brakke expects me to do anything with this wonderfully lovely springtime weather. he's like "WRITE ME A PAPER ON TS ELIOT" and i'm like *frolic*

but, in case you were wondering, i'm still awesome.

resolution: get better at livejournalling.
