if not discussed here it's because I was playing farmville instead of having a life.
Okay so today stuff shall be done.
i. Something I promised I’d do.
ii. Studying Latin (instead of backing out on the exam. I had a miserable score. I *know* I can ace a test if I try hard enough but that’s exactly the issue — trying).
iii. giving that library book back (I’m just fortunate 99% of people in that institute probably have no use for that book).
v. calling the guys (the guys in my class who shall henceforth be known in this blog as The Guys) and asking them if there is going to be a Carnival party. I kid you not. I don’t have any plans: there’s going to be a theatre group party but a) nobody’s invited me yet so I have no idea if I’m invited or if I’m just a sore n00b and b) for personal reasons I don’t know if I want to attend.
vi. if I do get any Carnival plans I should get a costume that isn’t a repeat of my previous ones (e.g. Witch though it’s a CLASSIC).
vii. possibly hang out with classmates because oh boy am I out of the loop of things.
Yesterday I didn’t really get up to much… I didn’t go to my exam. Then as I walked to campus something way creepy happened: one of those kids who go around selling agricultural almanacks tried to sell me one and I declined, so then he asked me for change to eat but after an experience where I gave some change to a group of girls doing something similar years ago which made them start fighting among each other as well as making a scene until I gave them all of my money (and my social phobia), I told him I didn’t have any but he decided to ask if I had a boyfriend and how old I was. I said I did and that I was 20 and thus way too old for him. I kind of feel like I should have given him some change but I’m growing into a state of social withdrawal thus talking to strangers or the possibility of him making a scene like those girls made me panic. Was I too horrible? Ugh.
Then I walked to campus and went to a meeting. Of a group called “The Origin of Comedy” which is putting on a series of informal talks on the pre-Socratics and stuff. I finally figured out who a chap in my Institute was: I knew the guy and we talked but I didn’t put the name to the face ahaha. There was lots of discussion. Alsoooo lots of people I hadn’t seen since forever were there and seeing everyone was nice — as was being in the Institute again with the ~spirit that goes on in there (it’s hard to explain if you’ve never been there). I got berated by the librarian aha. First because (like 99% of people there) I decided to help myself to an extra dosis of candies from the bowl while she was away but she caught me and after joking a bit forgave me, and then, because I have a book I was supposed to return earlier but I didn’t because I’m an idiot and only now realized it’s early February.
Then there was the chorus rehearsal and it was fun. I was actually thinking it’d be a bore aha. I always get so stressed on stage because I SUCK AT IT. Aha. I’m actually managing to speak loudly when on stage but yesterday I was kind of exhausted and kept getting distracted on the new bits we were starting to work on. And I actually forgot my text on like, the first scene we ever did, ever. I’m also starting to chill a bit on one of the choreographies although I’m certain that I still look a duck instead of actually the super sexy persona I’m supposed to take on during that scene but oh well.
I’m activating comments here sooon yay!
And hum dude I don’t have any Carnival plans YET. SUX2BEME.
Also stuff around my class are bing intense you guys.
Hey guys. Most of you already know who I am. But in any case here’s a quick intro:
I’m Eri, young enough to know everything but old enough to behave, Classics undergrad student in Coimbra (Portugal). Hopefully minoring in Anthropology soon, also. I’m a sort-of-not-aspiring writer and I’m slightly geeky. I have OCD and (suspected) bipolar disorder. I like books (from Euripides to Alan Moore including John Keats) and animals (I’m a vegetarian and I live with my bunny and my cat). I’m also a feminist and LGBT-identified. I secretely would like to get into academia one day if my main plan of becoming a socialite doesn’t work.
I’m awkward at talking about myself, eh.
