There and back again

With one week to go and still several things to do, I thought I'd start a blog to write about the whole experience that will be living in DC. Obviously, I don't plan to abandon LJ/DW or anything like it. After all, I have been posting here for the past five years, and the only reason I believe I managed to do that was sticking to the rule: post whatever and whenever you want.

As much as I love LJ, the fact remains that a blog and Live Journal are, at least in my mind, completely different things. This is a space I've created for myself, and in which I have written a lot of crap things over the years, with the one common denominator that I'm the one writing them. I've always believed that a blog needs a little more than that.

I may double post some of my posts on There and Back Again here, and I'll point out when I've done so.

Sleepy and tired as I am, I'll leave you with the link to the new blog, and the hope that it doesn't look too bad: Click!

PS: Just finished catching up with True Blood, and... wow. Amazing season so far! Also, holy frak, Battlestar Galactica has ridiculousy stolen my heart AND NOW I NEED ICONS.

The Big Journey

lu: (My favourite obsession)
Snagged this meme from [personal profile] christycorr because I thought it would be fun to do:

Choose your genre show, answer the questions using episode titles from that show—if possible, don't repeat any.

Show: Sex and the City

Are you a male or a female? Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl... The Power of Female Sex
Describe yourself: My Motherboard, My Self
How do you feel: Change of a Dress
Describe where you currently live: Sex and Another City
If you could go anywhere where would you go? I Heart NY
Your favorite form of transportation: Anchors Away
Your best friend is: Ex and the City
What's the weather like: The Cold War
Favourite time of day: Let There Be Light
If your life was a TV show, it would be called: The Freak Show Running with Scissors
What is life to you: Defining Moments
Your fear: Attack of the Five Foot Ten Woman Time and Punishment
What is the best advice you have to give: The Post-It Always Sticks Twice Just Say Yes
Thought for the Day: Ghost Town
How I would like to die: Splat! Let There Be Light
My soul’s present condition: The Drought
My motto: No Ifs, Ands or Butts Yeah. Right.

Granted, SatC isn't my favourite series, but since Chris had already done Six Feet Under, and since the SatC's episode titles are rather amusing, I ended up choosing this particular show. I was right; I had fun doing this. Although now I do feel like watching the whole show again.

On another note, TWO WEEKS before I board to DC. I still have some things to do (like pack), but everything is pretty much in order.

Really. Excited.

I was thinking about writing a blog while I'm there, but I can't seem to think of a title other then There and Back Again. Ideas? Please, please, I need ideas.

I'm in an airport, whoo! (God, I hate this)

I guess I didn't manage to be faithful to what I said on my last post about relationships. More specifically, about my being in one. I've just spent the last week with [ profile] stheh in both in Rio and São Paulo, and I couldn't be happier.

On an unrelated note, I got a new Macbook. Not the new Macbook, but, faithful to my life's tradition, my dad's old one. I haven't named it yet. It's black and pre-Leopard. I'm really considering "Vetinari" or "Sheldon", but I'm not sure yet. Ideas? Suggestions? Please help.

On another unrelated note, I made a new blog. As of now, I have the Live Journal, the blog in Portuguese and this new one. Obviously, I end up being a terrible updater. Oh, well. By the way, I need to change my LJ sidebar links. God, those are old.

Now it's back to work, college, life. While I love to spend a weekend resting and not worrying about these things, I hate the space in between usually represented by an airport or a bus terminal.

I hope they call my flight soon.

ETA: I handed in the paperwork at the International Studies Center and am one step closer to American University. Wish me luck!
ETA II: HOLY FUCK! I forgot to mention: I got 113/120 on the TOEFL iBT! Thank you so much for everyone's support. I was very, very much pleased with the score.

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.
