All play and no work makes Lu a dull girl.

lu: (All work and no play.)
I've been doing a lot of thinking for the last two weeks. It's funny to read old posts and think that, back then, all I wanted was to be an USP student. The only reason that I accepted PUC as a second choice was the fact that it's a good college, the best among the private Universities, and, of course, Roman Law.

Boredom is a very powerfull force of nature. Because of it, I've been sneaking into the fourth period classes going to PUC almost everyday of the week now. After a month of it, I am convinced that I just... belong there. For the second time in my life, I didn't choose the more famous, but a place that has more to do with me (even though, this time, the decision was unconcious). When [ profile] christycorr said that I'd do well in PUC and that, for some werid reason, Law would be a good college for me, I only half-believed her. Now I know. I feel that I'll be happy there.

Damn. I can't wait for classes to start.

ETA: Happy Easter, everyone!

Well, everyone is talking about it, so I figured I should just say a little bit about My Favourite Book Fair of All Time.

Bienal has always meant a lot to me. Ever since I was a kid my mother took me there, every two years. After I moved to São Paulo I started going every year, one there and one here, in Rio. There was never a Bienal that wasn't special to me in some way.

Over the past four years, they all brought excellent surprises. In 2003, I came out of the closet for the first time in my life. My confident was my best friend and future girlfriend, [ profile] deadcinderella.

In 2004 I got closer to my freshly acquired friends in São Paulo, especially to [ profile] hermikiller who would also turn out to be a future girlfriend.

2005 was a Rio year, and I went with my mother, my sister, [ profile] deadcinderella and [ profile] christycorr. One of the first times I went out with Chris, and the first weekend we saw each other every day. I guess I don't really have to explain how that turned out.

This year, 2006, I was only able to go on a Wednesday, usually a fairly calm day. Of course, I wasn't counting on the school trips to the place. I met [ profile] xxxemo_girlxxx, bought only two books on Roman History, and saved the money to spend at Livraria Cultura afterwards. I had a great time, and my companion this time was my best gay friend, [ profile] magnun.

I wonder if we'll ever date. *laughs*

List of books acquired on that day )

Post scriptum: [ profile] dehds, thanks for finding the songs.

So I yesterday ended up in the hospital because of my stupid thorat and have no idea when I will be able to go to São Paulo. Getting better, though, so no need to worry. I will try to travel as soon as possible, so, good people of São Paulo, have faith! *grins*

Meanwhile, I was going through my Photoblog archives (I miss those times so badly --bloody Belgians) to find some pics for [ profile] anokam and decided to make a post with some pictures since I've never did that here. Some of them are more than one year old, though.

Anyways. Have fun, kids.

Just take my picture )

Brasileiros que nunca comentam aqui porque ou não lêem inglês ou não estão a fim:

- As fotos são de vocês e para vocês. É só clicar no lj-cut. Tem umas bem memoráveis.

- Eu estou ficando melhor - acabei parando no hospital - mas eu vou fazer o possível para ir à São Paulo o mais rápido o possível, ok?

- Amo vocês. óò

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.
