Don’t complain about what you have,
you’ll miss it when it’s gone.
Today was International Day at my uni. Where everyone celebrates all the different nations that people come from who study at BAU.
Pretty much the whole garden of the uni gets filled with tents a tables and each country has a table to represent themself with.
Unfortunately, none of the Americans wanted to take on the task of running our table so the duty fell onto Michael and I.
The uni gave us 200 liras to buy things for our stand and Michael and I decided to make coco-cola floats (because they don’t have root beer), smores and hamburgers.
It was difficult to find marshmallows in this country and when we did they were crazy expensive, but we found them!
It was kind of stressful to buy everything and bring it to uni. We did the morning of. So Michael and I decided to get a little day drunk to make us feel better.
Then when we put the whole stand together Michael got pretty upset with me cuase I kept ditching him and then he soaked me with the water gun we bought (with part of our money from the uni).
Honestly our best purchase was the water gun and a frisbee.
Half way throughout the day I decided to put on the Pakistani dress that Sameer had brought me from Pakistan back in January. I felt soooo awesome, but I think it confused people cause I’m so white and everyone kept asking me where I was from.
The best part was playing my accordion on stage. Everyone really liked it. I was an American representing the US, wearing a Pakistani dress, and playing an Italian instrument. It was brilliant.
The other best part was when someone walked by carrying a Belgian flag. I freaked out, because there was no Belgium stand and I didn’t see any of the Belgians at school. I asked the guy where he got the flag from, (he was Turkish), and he was like -
“Oh, I’m from Germany”
and so I called him an aptal and told him that that wasn’t even the German flag and took it from him and carried it around for the rest of the day.
Brilliant day, brilliant people, in a brilliant place.
Anyone can love a rose, but it takes a great deal to love a leaf. It’s ordinary to love the beautiful, but it’s beautiful to love the ordinary.
this makes the error of assuming theres anything ordinary about leaves to begin with.
For the above ^^^
im laughing so hard
it’s funny because we all know who this is about
I’m combining two of these. I’m now calling Ben BUMBLEBEE WAFFLESTICK and no one can stop me.
Butterscotch Crumblycake from now on
Someone should make a song out of this.
I can’t believe everything,
even if it’s true
There is something about the way
you look at me
I guess you don’t realize it,
but I most certainly do.
Your eyes burn through my skin
they see straight into my soul
how could you not have known this before?
And now everything is normal,
just like it was before
I’m left starving
and always yearning for more
I’m always looking ahead,
so I’ll try to pause and look at right now first:
My final projects are all approaching their due dates soon.
This is so nerve-wracking.
The thing about creating something you’re passionate about
is that it makes you vulnerable.
Showing that thing to people is scary.
But when you do something that you can be proud of,
and something that has meaning to you
and it ends up good?
Then it’s all worth it and more so.
And these are just little things,
hopefully just a taste of the future to come.
Now, to look ahead:
I’m really excited about next semester of school.
This one hasn’t even finished yet and I’m already
stoked for the next one.
I think it’s because I’ll be at a brand new campus,
meeting new people again and (inshallah) making friends.
Being back with old friends and being back in a city
where I can ride my bike wherever the fuck I want.
But of course I don’t want the semester to start before the summer.
Let’s see how far I can stretch the left over of my student loans
Places I’d like to visit are -
New York City
The best part about all these places is that I would have
a free place to stay in all of them.
But I still don’t know if I’ll have the time or the means.
So we’ll see where this summer takes me.
Then planning for the even further away future begins.
What the fuck do you do after you graduate college?
Jessica this is for you. Read Gaimans tweet.
New assignment for class is filming a monologue.
The point is to focus on sound effects though, the actual content
of the monologue was not specefied at all.
So I chose to take this opportunity and recite the lyrics to ‘Come Together’
I think it was a good executive decision in my life.
The only bad part about this decision is that it requires me being on camera
and hearing my own voice on camera
and then showing it to my whole class.
WTF was I thinking.
Now after kind of owning my first cat,
I can definitively say.
Dogs > Cats
(Except Abu Saleem, I love him to pieces.)
