lu: (Sex in glasses)
Long time no see. Maybe random information about the last seven weeks might sum them up much better than a long, linear post would:

1. I've started really listening to U2 again after watching U23D. I also had an epiphany, and realised that this band has everything to do with what I love, and fight for (yes, I realise how thick I am for only having thought of this now). I'm particularly addicted to the Vertigo Tour.

2. I fell in love with The Big Bang Theory and got scared whenever I identified myself with Sheldon.

3. I started to love reading novels again. I mean, can't-let-the-book-down-oops-banged-my-head-on-a-tree love reading novels. In the last weeks: The Graveyard Book, The Time Traveler's Wife, and Middlesex (still not done). Next one will be Looking for Alaska, by John Greene.

4. Speaking of John Green, I've given continuity to my project of watching all the B20 videos (if you don't know what I'm talking about, go here now.

5. I've given continuity to another project: finishing the four seasons of Doctor Who. Currently on the third one.

6. I've started reading Twilight when bored in class. I felt left out, and wanted to share all the lulz. Oh, the pain.

7. I decided that I really want to be a Human Rights Lawyer, and I'm working towards that.

8. I've also decided to try to spend six months as an exchange student at American University, in Washington D.C..

9. ...which is why I'm talking the TOEFL iBT in a week (note: please shoot me if I fail).

10. I've resurrected my online!geeky!self, and have been posting on forums I hadn't logged on in a long time.

11. I bought new, geeky glasses to go with my current self because I thought having another pair would be nice (posted a picture on my Facebook profile).

12. I will start editing the Wiki again.

13. I am not and do not plan to be in a relationship any time soon.

Mm. I guess that's pretty much it. Now, please stay with lyrics for the amazing song Nerdfighterlike, written by Laurie and covered by Hank Green, here.

Won't you be a Nerdfighter like me? )

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.
