The speech is done and all in all I think it went ok. OH! Forgive me I started too soon. Here are the details. For a class, Internet, I had to come up with a 6-7 minute speech regarding a topic I was interested  in. So after battling with both my speech and a crappy laptop I managed to make a great power point as a visual aid. However, I probably should hve praacticed y speech more than the 3 times I did...and I probably should have done some more in depth research.

BUT all in all I think it went fine. I was a minute and 16 seconds over time and I tended to face away from the audiance but it was my first time giving a speech infront of a class all on my own in college so I will certainly improve for next time.

I Just Cant Escape You..

Hello Internet!
SO after a very very long break, both from you and the rest of the world I have finally realized that I just cannot escape you. I even ran to Chicago ( for Model UN) and was internet free for 4 days before realizing that it didnt matter. Everywhere I looked someone was playing on Facebook or checking their emails through their phone or another electronical device. 

And again I promise to get started on the music blog ..... once I get some time, which will not be this week.

My council (Economic and Social council) passed about 17 resolutions within four days. we all worked diligently and progressed through all of our topics leaving everyone fairly happy.

Edited: Waiting in line and funny people

Have you ever waited in line a just watched the people around; how they interact, talk, stand or even what they buy? I love to do this, especially when I have to wait in long lines ( for movies, shopping, whatever).   I feel that you can learn so much abut someone once you have watched them and listened to them talk. I dont mean in the creepy stalker way but in a purely curious way.

Question of the day: what have you learned today?

No Time

So I do not have time tonight to make a fairly long or entertining blog so I will come back and edit this tomorrow

Feeling Down

Have you ever had one of those days that starts well but deteriorates . Yea, I'm having that day. This morning was fine but as the day went on I felt more and more depressed.

Instead of doing homework I've sat on my ass all day and continually fell deeper and deeper into a slump. With no motivation I've afraid that I will become even more lazy and  fat. Yes that is my self esteem issues talking. Oh and lack of motivation means that my other blog will furthur be put on hold.

Question of the Day: How you pull yourself out of a slump?

Radio Station

So tonight was my third radio dj set and it wasnt that great. Turns out that the voice mic wasnt working, which is both a blessing and a curse. A  blessing because my dialogue tonight was terrible! I studdered and fumbled with my words. It was a curse because no one heard me! so I will get no feed back.

Oh well. its late and I have foreign films to watch. Bonsoir tout le monde.

Languages and attraction.

So tonight I was dragged to a German club party by my roommate and a friend. I personally do not speak any German (except a few swear words, dog, mother, no, please, thankyou, wake up, welcome, my name is and yes) and instead je parle le francias!  At said party we all (there was maybe 9 of us) sat down to watch a german film called "The Edukators." This movie was awesome and revolved around a brief period of time in the lives of two young men and a young woman.

But I'm not here to talk about the movie I'm here to talk about language and attraction. The first thing I noticed about the film (besides that fact that it was in GERMAN) was that the language barrier suddenly made the men in the film even more attractive than they aready were. I mean lets face it ladies, if a guy has an accent he immediately ets 15 bonus points in the attraction department.And gentlmen , the same goes for you, you know you love women with an accent other than your own.

So my question is, why does not being able to understand a language make that person suddenly more attractive? and whats you favorite accent/language?

Sometimes there are no words

Sometimes there are no words for what you heard. Sometimes there are no phrases, or sounds, or images that you can paint with words to descrie what you see. Sometimes you cannot take the photograph in the mind and translate it to print.

Right now I am listeing to Gen. Douglas MacArthur's "Duty, Honor, Country" speech given to the cadets at Westpoint and know that I will have a hard time finding the right words to convey MacArthur's emotion or inspiring words to those listening.

His voice reminds me of those that you hear reading the war novels on audiobooks and despite the grim beginning and imagery I am lulled into sleep.

Question of the Day: How do describe what you do not have words for?

No Funny and Books

Tonight was the college's Last Comic Standing competition and well, it sucked. 5 "comidians" told jokes, lame jobes at that for an hour of my life. That hour I will never get back :(

BUT on a  better note, my rommmate M introduced me to a website called Shelfari.com. Its basically a website where you can make a list of all of the books you have read and all the ones you would like to read. For  someone like me, who basically shot out of the womb with a book, this website is perfect. 

Today I have spent 3 hours on this site...3 hours of categorizing and listing ...and I'm not even close to finished yet.

Back to my books.

Money, money, spending and a little explaination.

Hello Internet!  I  promise that from now I will be as diligent as possible with my posts and to keep them fairly detailed or entertaining.

Today my mother came to me at college. Normally I would have gone home but the circumstances did not allow for it.  The main reson for her visit (besides seeing her lovely daughter) was to buy me some business attire for Model United Nations.

 For anyone out there who does know MUN is a 1 credit class offered in the fall. Basically when you sign up for the class you are signing away 4 days in of your life to a conference which is help in Chicago. At the conference colleges and universities are invited to represent various countries in a mock UN session. This year I will be one of the people representing the ECOSOC committee of the Russian Federation. - Western business attire must be worn at all time and being a  jobless college student I lack anything that would conform to that label.

 After spending an hour or so looking around at JCPenny'swe slipped in line and saved over $140 because of awesome doorbuster sales!. Then after a yummy lunch at Subway (not exactly healthy but whatev's) we paid a visit to Kohls where we saved another $60 on clothes. \

Now in order to save so much I must have spent atleat $300 right? WRONG! in total we spent less than $190. So really I saved about $200  on about $400 worth of purchandise due to sales. 

This might not be interesting to anyone else but I found it unbelievable!

2nd Set

So tonight was my second dj set for the collge radio station. My first set was ok but my second set was so much better! Luckily, my friend AS sat there with me to keep me company but I realized that I definately need to get more music if I am going to continue with an international music show. So far the shows name is Le Zik a french slang term for music. 

Now I just need to memorize all of the FCC rules and make sure that nohing conflicts with the college code of conduct, etc.

More tomorrow. Bonsoir!

Its movie time! Part1

So it was asked that I focus on a movie that my Journalism class is watching: Shattered Glass. The movie centers around the rise and demise of Stephen Glass.  But enough about the plot, what the class was asked to blog about was the moral messages of the film.

 So here is what I learned.
      1. Dont make up anything! I feel like this is a given and shouldn't have to be said
      2. Always be able to back up your sources.  -- If you use someone has a souce make sure you have a legitamate number or email for them.
      3. Keep your notes - you might be asked to check them (or hand them over!)

Stayed turned for part 2 next Thursday.

Waiting for Chocolate

Tonight my roommates and I made chocolate. Well, actually, we melted chocolate pieces in plastic bags in the microwave but same thing right? and then we put it in plastic molds and froze it. I will write while it hardens but the moment it done this is done. 
Oh and I missed a school newspaper meeting....damnit!!!!!!!! damn damn damn....

Chocolates done!   Now its time for a chocolate rat..or spider...or  pumpkin. I <3 Halloween.

You Are What You Watch???

So According to E!News there is a study now out that finds correlations between what you watch and your personality.I wish they had mentioned the study's (sp?) name so I could do more research but thats ok, I'm sure its somewhere.

I ask you Internet,  what do you think about this? To use myself as an example: I love all sorts of shows, I will watch whatever I'm in the mood for. If I want crime and dark subjects I watch CSI or Criminal Minds. If I feel girly and loving I watch Say Yes to the Dress or Four Weddings. If I want somethign magical I turn to the SciFi channel and when I want something cute I watch Animal Planet.

Frankie Update: I havent seen Frakie in a very long time. Possibilities: A) He has begun hibrnation B) Campus Safety pice dim up and sent him way TT_TT

Question fo the Day: What do you like to watch?

Rocky Horrow Picture show

In order to celebrte Halloween  my roommates and I watched a slew of action and comedy films. We started the evening with Underworld which was followed up with Underworld:Evoltuion. C, M, H and I all agreed thathe character of Micheal was much more attratve as his Vampire/werwolf hybrid self and that certain things in the film (character mishaps, etc) were fairly annoying.

However the best part of the evening was watching Rocky Horrow Picture show. This cult classic always makes me laugh. I can sing all of the songs and obviously know the time warp dance. I dont know anyone who has watched the movie and not loved it. Needless to say, Frankenfurter (play by the awesome Tim Curry) was the best character in the film Not only is he attractive (in that androginous way) but he has better legs than anyone I have seen.

Anywho, not much comp. power left and no personal energy left. Goodnight Internet.
