I'm trying to study for an exam next Thursday. It's kind of working. But it's also kind of not working. Mostly I feel like I've already done enough for today and I've only been studying for...I don't even know. Not long. 30 minutes maybe? Or maybe even a bit longer! It's just kind of boring. I think I need other music.

Also I've been kind of wanting to try writing fanfiction for Hawaii Five-0. And then I stumbled across [livejournal.com profile] leupagus's promptfest-thing and I was even more . God, it sucks that I can't think of the word I want to use in any of the languages that I know. *headdesk* Anyway. TEMPTED! That's the word I wanted. What does that mean in German...? *leos* Hm...interesting. Seriously, why can't I speak my own bloody mother tongue? I wish I could... Anyway, I actually wrote a couple of haikus because [livejournal.com profile] and_ed wanted somebody to do it and I thought: Ooooh, why not? I think I'll probably go back to [livejournal.com profile] leupagus's post and request a prompt. Provided I can drum up the courage to do so. But it all seems to be very much no-pressure, which is awesome.

Yesterday I introduced a friend to Hawaii Five-0. Before that I had sent her a couple of pictures of Steve, Danny, Chin and Kono and I made her watch the trailer. She had actually said that Steve wasn't really very handsome. But that didn't hold up yesterday. She did say that Chin wasn't all that handsome, which I don't understand at all.

Alright...I think that was enough procrastination for now. I'll try the studying thing again now. See you in 10 minutes XD

Season 1 episode Holiday in the Hills:

Face: Uh, Murdock? What's gonna happen?
Murdock: It looks like we gonna crash.
Face: No, come on, really. What's gonna happen?
Murdock: It looks like we gonna crash and die.

Murdock: This thing's got the glide characteristics of a free-falling safe.

Murdock: Ladies and gentlemen, that concludes your flight. Thank you for flying Miracle Airlines, the only airline where Lady Luck is your co-pilot.

Murdock: I simply relocated the aircraft with extreme prejudice because of a total loss of thrust and lift functions!

Did anyone else notice the reference to Monty Python's Argument Clinic in the latest House episode? Because that was awesome! Although I guess this one is relatively obscure...still. It made me happy :)

No whining today!
Yesterday, my brother came back home for a visit because of Mother's Day and (mostly) my father's birthday. So this is awesome.
What makes it even better, is that the weather is beautiful! Sunny, warm bordering on hot... Lovely.

And look! I have new icons. This one is just one of them. I love them.

Also, my friend from uni introduced me to Jeeves & Wooster. How very brilliant! And right now I'm fighting the continuing urge to write like they speak XD
Sadly, she could only lend me the first episode (at least for now). Apparently The Daily Telegraph sold their paper along with a different episode of Jeeves & Wooster for a week.

Hi! It's been quite a while. But I really don't want to do the whole billion-words-long update thing. Especially since the only really "important" big news is this: I am now studying to become an English and German teacher. It's going to take another 5 years more or less, but I'm pretty happy with it and I'm fairly confident that I'll continue to be happy with it.
In fact, I really don't know why I didn't study English to start with. Because really, I think English is just about the only thing that I've consistently been interested in. Not even other languages such as French, Spanish, German or JAPANESE (which I bleeding studied) can compare. But well, I was quite sure that actually studying English would take all the fun out of it. Which is stupid.

Oh, oh! Awesome thing? At the English department you can actually learn Irish! How cool is that?! I am so going to start learning Irish next semester!

Also, last week or something I started watching Merlin. You know, the BBC version. Which is AWESOME! I love it! Sadly, I've finished watching the first season already and, though there will be a second season, it's not out yet. I'm not sure if they've even started filming yet. But anyway, it's still great. And unless I read something wrong, the third season of Robin Hood's going to start up sometime this month. Which is also great because British English! Because seriously, I need to listen to more British English because I've developed a disturbing tendency to pronounce some words the American way. And although there's mostly nothing wrong with American English, I really prefer the British accent. Also the spelling. And the phonetic writing system (IPA FTW!).

Something else I really kind of want to do is start writing stuff. At some point in time I wrote fanfiction (almost never put online), but I really want to be a bit creative again. It's been so long. Sadly, sadly, sadly I totally lack any kind of idea. Which is why I'm going to try out some kind of challenge thing. In private of course. Unless I actually manage to produce something worth reading XD

I also need a new ringtone for my mobile. Dean Winchester saying "Your phone's ringing. Pick up your phone!" is very cool and also effective, but I'm kind of pining for some music...or something else. Ooooh...how about Monty Python...Brave Sir Robin, anyone? Or Flying Circus. But maybe I'll go back to AC/DC. Anyway, I'll find something, I'm sure.

Also, I really need a new bloody mood theme! I'm getting kind of bored with this one.
And would you look at that? Long entry! So anyway, I think I'll go do something about the ringtone...or the mood theme. Or maybe I'll go find some new icons...

I thought it was about time that I resurfaced in the land of LJ. Don't take me wrong, I've been lurking something serious, reading fanfiction mostly XD, but I've only commented really sparingly. Which kind of makes me feel bad. Also, I'm in a communicating kind of mood :)

So, update time... Yesterday I handed in the research paper for my Bachelor's. I'm kind of nervous about it, but on the other hand I have a kind of good feeling about this paper. Other than that Uni usually kind of sucks, but what can you do *shrugs*

In other news, I've recently watched due South seasons 3 and 4. I used to watch it all the time as a child. I loved it! Even though I can't even remember which seasons I watched. It's such a brilliant show x3 I'm so happy I found it again.
And so I've been reading bunches of dS FFs. Also lovely :) And now I kind of really want to write something myself...only I never have any ideas XD Ah well.

Right. I'll stop now. Gotta go sleep.

Right. First of all, we (my siblings and me) got a Wii to my birthday. And I got The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. And by the way, can somebody tell me why it's called The Legend of Zelda, when the protagonist's name is actually Link? For the longest time, I thought his name was Zelda XD Anyway, it's really interesting. I haven't played it in a couple of days, though, because first, I had to finish watching The Women's Murder Club. Very brilliant TV series based on a book (or maybe a book series?) by James Petterson, who is also brilliant.

But, I haven't actually finished The Women's Murder Club (I will have to, though, I'm near finished) because of my new obsession: Robin Hood (the BBC version). Which is also brilliant and great and wonderful!

I also have to finish this great game for Nintendo DS that I bought myself some time ago. In Japanese it's called Subarashiki kono sekai, in English/German it's The world ends with you. Yes, the "translation" doesn't make the most sense lol But it's a great game and I really need to finish it. At some point. Maybe once I've finished watching Robin Hood... XD

Hm...I might also get myself a new mood theme soon. And I think I should get started with my del.isio.us page...
