So this is the new year.

lu: (All work and no play.)
I've pushed it as far as I could, but it's now officially unavoidable: I need to start my research again. In other words: summer vacations have prematurely ended after one month. Now I need to breathe deeply and take the plunge; this is going to be a long, long semester.

What happened in the past weeks? I've enjoyed my vacations the only way I really know how: got addicted to a new series (How I Met Your Mother), watched again some episodes of old favourites (The L Word and Doctor Who), spent time with the girlfriend and with friends, drank a lot, and mostly stayed in. Apart from two incidental times I ended up going to the beach (one of them, though, was on New Year's Eve, so it hardly counts), I have been true to my geeky self.

Mostly Everyone that was in Rio for the holidays is now gone, and I'm left home with my still-injured cat trying to stop procrastinating. No need to say I'm not doing much progress at the moment.

Only one resolution for 2009: I will learn have a schedule. Even if it kills me. And, let's face it, it probably will.

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
