random talk for a tuesday evening May 22, 2007

Filed under: college,dance,links,rant — Amy @ 11:39 pm

That’s it. I have to stop missing class. This is getting downright silly.

And you know what else is downright silly? There’s a new pill out there, and its intention is to end periods. I just don’t think that’s natural! Sure, being a girl is a pain in a butt, but there are some things out there which I just don’t think should be messed with that much. This is one of them.

I know, I can’t believe I’m putting this after menstrual talk, but Apolo Anton Ohno won Dancing with the Stars, Season 4! I think he most definitely deserves it, and I know that it makes me entire family happy. See what happens when my family votes? Good things, people, good things.

Another unbelievable thing: this academic quarter is coming to an end. It’s mind-blowing that it’s 8th week, but I just want it to go faster. I don’t want to say goodbye, but I’m tired of this already. I wish I could do well and we could just be through, because it’s frustrating. My classes aren’t bad or anything, but there’s so much I’d rather do, I guess. On a class related note, my Poli Sci professor was feeling bad today and had to sit down. We were all worried about him, so we called the paramedics. It seemed like he was doing better afterwards, but he gave us a scare. The man is the product of history. Someone once told me that he’s like Forrest Gump. He’s seen everything: the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Holocaust, Communist China, Communist Russia, Imperial Japan. It’s crazy. He’s living history.

One of these days, I wonder what legacy I’ll leave. I hope it’s a good one. I hope people stick around and care. I hope I leave the world better than I came into it.

 

small obsessions May 9, 2007

Filed under: dance,videos — Amy @ 6:04 am

I admit it, I am addicted to certain TV shows. By this I mean that I will even sit through the commercials during these shows — that’s how much I want to watch in the moment, if you catch my drift. In particular, I’ve been obsessing about Dancing With the Stars. I mean, Apolo Anton Ohno! I’m most definitely voting for him … and he has earned the votes, might I add.

Check it out:

Apolo & Julianne’s Paso Doble
Apolo & Julianne’s Samba

Both of these dances were really fun and really intense. I like the second one, because the song is “I Like To Move It,” which I remember from Madagascar. It’s all good fun. I wish I could dance like that … and yeah. Enough babbling. Time to keep on not sleeping. I’ll knit instead.
