Oh man, it just keeps snowing and snowing and snowing... there's about a foot of snow outside my window, and it doesn't look like it's gonna stop any time soon.

White Christmas? There's hope, there's hope.... ^_____^

so, that update last night didn't happen...obviously. :P

There was so much I wanted to do last night, really, and NONE of it happened. ^^;

I came home from school, made and ate dinner, puttered around the kitchen for a bit and then decided I needed a hot bath. took said bath, put on my jammies and called the boy, as promised earlier.

Embarassingly enough, I had to cut that phonecall short after a while because I was too tired to talk which made the conversation somewhat...difficult. *sweatdrop* He just laughed and told me to go to bed. ♥

Not quite ready to give up the fight, I tried to watch one episode of Tytania, but had to quit after about 10 minutes as I nearly fell asleep with the laptop still on my bed. So I put everything away, turned off the lights and went to sleep.

That was all before 10pm.


Week from Hell is halfway done, but I've got only one final left tomorrow. I had 2 exams on Monday and one yesterday, plus a presentation last night. Everything went reasonably well, I think, so that's quite a relief.

I'm a bit afraid of the one tomorrow, though. >.<. The lady who held the course made such a mess of things, it's not even funny. No one knows what's going on, exactly, and we haven't got a book to rely on, just her script, which is made of ppt slides that show looooooooots of pictures but rarely any explanations. *SIGH*

Oh well, it will be over soon enough.


On a happier note (because, you know, despite everything - cold, finals etc - I'm still feeling happy and christmassy XD)

THANK YOU, [livejournal.com profile] merith, [livejournal.com profile] lil_1337, [livejournal.com profile] dysis, and [livejournal.com profile] gundamnook for the Christmas cards! ^____^ *snugsnug*

Also, [livejournal.com profile] nee_chan, I sent the Christmas presents for everyone to your parents' place (in one package), so please hand them out to the others when the package gets there? Also, this is A Mission! I'm not sure if it's gonna be there in time for Christmas, but I'm pretty sure it'll make it before New Years, so you are responsible that everyone gets his or her present while we still have the year 2008! :P


And since I haven't posted anything fangirlish in so long: I'm totally and utterly in love with the current Naruto opening (Closer) and the Bleach ending (Hitohira no hanabira) ♥♥♥!

I'm also very much looking forward to catching up with anime things - the only shows I'm up to date with are Skip Beat and Bleach. ^^,


Last (but not least): YULETIDE!

I'm looking for someone who would be willing to beta my yuletide fic for grammar and general formal things on the 20th. I'll probably finish it sometime late on the 19th or early 20th (my time!). Upload deadline is 9:00 pm Eastern US time, so it would have to be before that. ^^;
Volunteers? Please?

... I just handed in the application for my masters thesis. o.O;; seems like this is getting real.

also, final #3 in half an hour. *flail*

and I've got a nasty cold. -.-"

hellllloooo, life. :P

update later tonight, I think, when the worst is over...
haraamis: (twitch)
Dear (beloved, though not so much right now) Body of mine,

I would like to inform you that this not the right time to show weakness. I thought we were clear on the fact that a cold such as the one you are developping since yesterday does not fit The Schedule.
Papers have to be written, work has to be done, and the scout camp needs to be prepared. We do not have time to feel crappy. So, please to be returning back to normal ASAP.

Sincerely yours, with no love but much sniffling

All I wrote last night on my paper... is gone.

I have no idea why. I turned off the computer this morning before I went to work. Nothing out of the ordinary happened. It didn't freeze, it didn't crash, it didn't ask me if I wanted to save....

And now it's just not there anymore.

I think I'm gonna cry.

[Edit] OMG, I'm so lucky! I just remembered that I sent myself an email to my work-addy last night before I went to bed, so I could write on the paper if I had some spare time at work today.... and that email's got the full version attached to it! ^___^

I still don't know what the hell happened to the version on my computer, but hey, I'm not about to complain now.

hello reality

I got back ok last night - late, but with all my luggage and without major delays for once. yay! ^^;

I also managed somehow to catch a cold a couple of days back, so that was less fun. Flying with a cold sucks. -.-" And I'm still feeling it, so I'm going to bed after posting this. I also have the suspicion that there's a nasty cough in the makings....grrr. *shakes fist* Bad timing! I need to catch up with all the stuff for uni, and then there's a project for the scouts that I need to complete as soon as possible. Also, presentation next Monday. Ugh. And finish unpacking. Haven't quite finished that yet. I need more room. Less stuff is apparently not an option *pokes self*. I'm at my parents right now since my printer refused to print my tax papers and I have to turn them in until tomorrow...

Other than that, the trip was absolutely wonderful and waaaaay too short. There are quite a few people I would have liked to meet up with that I didn't have time to meet, and so many more things to see and do. And there will be a time when I can go to a concert at the Tokyo Dome, I swear. I'm going to put this on my list of things to accomplish in life. *^_^* I had so much fun, though, got invited and spoiled. ♥ I talked and laughed so much, thoroughly using and enjoying the opportunity to finally speak Japanese again. And I got to cuddle my lovely [livejournal.com profile] belina ♥♥♥! And the food, THE FOOD. *_* I gained weight, though that was to be expected. ^^; Aaaaaand, I actually did get to see some beautiful cherry blossoms. Cherry blossom season just started last week, and I was lucky to catch Ueno park in full bloom. Wow. Just wow. It made my trip even more special.

Pictures will have to wait, though, until I've managed to sort through the 2 gigs of pics [livejournal.com profile] belina took. @_@ She's camera happy, that one. My oh my.

Anyway, I'm sorry for not replying to comments yet. I'll get to that as soon as I've caught up on sleep and energy. I have a hard time thinking as you can see by how disjointed this post is. *sweatdrop* I have lots and lots to do this week, too, but I'm sure I'll be able to squeeze you guys in somewhere. ^_~ ♥♥♥

...so sleeeeepy..... e_e

One last thing before I skip off to bed. I watched the third Tsubasa OVA while waiting at the airport in Copenhagen... oh Fay. My love for Fay knows no bounds. ♥ So much love.
haraamis: (just a dream)


God, I'm so excited.

But...^^; There is much to be done before I can leave, which is why I haven't been around much. Sleep? Who needs sleep... :P

I've got the first presentation of the semester in about 3 hours, after nothing but scrambling to get the sources together over the last 2 weeks. Why is it that there's a TON of books at the library but those you really, really need are always gone? -.-"

Helped out with the scouts yesterday night (... I can never say no when they ask me... I just can't...^^;), went to my parents' after that and found a pleasant surprise there. ^_^ Since I'm gonna be in Japan on my birthday, they gave me my presents early.
*beams* I got a really soft red blanket (I've wanted one for so long!) and champagne glasses - 4 pieces, 2 with red stems and 2 with blue stems, so I have a matching pair for both my kitchen and my living room. XD XD My mom knows me so well. *loves her*

Also, I've had one of those dreams last night again. Yeah, one of those "he's gonna kiss me, he's gonna kiss me, he's gonna.... aw, CURSES, WHY am I waking up NOW?!"-dreams. Arrgh! *cough* I do think I should refrain from mentioning who "he" was this time, though, as some people on my flist might laugh so hard at me they might hurt themselves....^^;;;;


Anyway, off to uni now.

Back, safe and sound, and incredibly busy. The days before Christmas are going to KILL me. >.<.

I forgot my towel at [livejournal.com profile] iniq's, so she'll have to come visit me soon and bring it with her. *smirk*


We watched all of Season 1 of Supernatural over the weekend, plus the first episode of Season 2, and also some interviews and stuff... *thud*

I KNOW why I don't watch TV shows very often. Because when I do I fall. And I fall HARD.

With anime, despite how much in love I am with certain shows and characters, there's always somewhere in the back of my mind the knowledge that it's not real. The characters can't be real. (*cough* maybe with the exception of Wufei, who's become so much a part of me it's scary....) Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my anime. I am deeply in love with those characters, too; seeing them suffer breaks my heart (oh Fay...) and seeing them happy makes me happy, as well. But there is a certain distance.

But with TV shows, everything is so much more REAL. They are people in flesh and blood and seem so much more touchable. So much more RIGHT THERE. So very human.

So now, my head is full of Sam and Dean and Dean and Sam and, oh, Jared and Jensen and NOTHING ELSE, even though I should study for my finals, finish up my yuletide fic, catch up on finish [livejournal.com profile] belina's advent calendar, write a final paper, do homework etc.

Boys? This is really not a good time. I have obligations, you know? *headdesk*

Dum di dum....

Presentation #4 done. Two more to go. ~.~"

I also bought blank cards today, so now all I need is an idea what to draw this year. And actually draw. XD

Also, if you missed it, post for Christmas cards is HERE!

In other news. I'm cold. Bleh.

Off to find my floor clean the apartment. *zooms off*

this and that

First of all, a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of the sweetest and cutest people online.

I hope you have a great one, [livejournal.com profile] misanagi! *smooch*


uni workload so far for this semester:

more under the cut if you're interested )

I also agreed to give a lecture on Japanese morphology in one of the Introduction to Linguistics classes in the English Department so the students can get a view on the subject from a language completely different from English. Which I like doing. ^_^ I love talking about Japanese linguistics. *pets inner geek*


Last but not least: I'M GOING TO JAPAN NEXT MARCH! *bouncebounce* for two weeks. ^_________^


Tuesday, 2 October 2007 12:19 am
haraamis: (me)

...this got totally lost in all that happened in the last two weeks, but I thought I'd still let you know that...


...not that my life would be any different now, since I'm continuing right on as a graduate student, but hey! I've actually got a degree now. *grins* hypothetically speaking at least, since I still need to apply with the faculty for the diploma (yes, it's complicated...:P).

Anyway, class in the morning, so off to bed now.

yay! DONE

Wednesday, 5 September 2007 04:24 pm
haraamis: (well well)

Turned in my thesis about 2 hours ago. ^________^

Oh GOD, I'm so glad it's over. Well, it's not quite over yet, as I still have to prepare the defense of my work, which will be held in roughly two weeks.
Shouldn't be too hard, though. ^_^

Haha, and now I REALLY need to pick up and clean my apartment. It has been badly neglected. ^^;;;

BUT. before that, I'm going to open up


I'm going to France for a week Friday night, and I won't have internet there and also a lot of free time. And I really want to write stuff that doesn't feel like writing an essay. XD

So, request away. And I'm gonna be bold and say ANYTHING goes. The one condition being that I must have seen at least half of the show.

*sits back and waits for requests of DOOM*

Just out of curiousity, has anyone of you read Laurell K. Hamilton's Meredith Gentry Novels series?

I'm not sure why, but I seem to have been utterly captivated by these books...^^;


In other news, the weather forecast did end up being right after all... when I left the house this morning it was the loveliest sunny weather...roughly two hours later it snowed like crazy. Go to hell, wonky weather. *grump*

To top it off, the appointment I was supposed to go to this morning was cancelled. They didn't tell me until I was there, though. -.-"


I also watched the last episode of Hana yori dango II this morning. *relieved sigh* Finally the torture is over. And everyone's happy. ^__^ It was quite the lovely ending.

haraamis: (happiness)
First of all, a big THANK YOU to everyone for the birthday wishes and presents. I feel so spoiled. ^_^; ♥

I had a wonderful and happy weekend, with my family and friends and lots of food and fun. ^____^ And today was a continuation of the goodness with sleeping in, brunch, cake, and concert (Bach's Mass in h minor).

Uni starts again tomorrow, and I have an appointment at 11am, so I should probably go to bed. *blinks sleepily* Night night...

still snowing....

Wednesday, 24 January 2007 03:58 pm
haraamis: (moving)
Well, it's official now. I'm moving (AGAIN!) around April/May.... -.-"

Roomie has decided to move in with a really good friend of hers, so I had to decide whether to keep the apartment (and thus having to search for a new roommate) or whether I should look for a place of my own. Since
this apartment has a lot of flaws, I don't feel like getting another roommate - who I might or might not get along with - , and I know I'm going to live in Bern for at least another 2 1/2 years, I've decided to look for a new place, just for myself. It's a yay on the one hand, but it's a lot of trouble, too. I really didn't want to move so soon again, and finding a place is not exactly easy either. Additionally, it's going to be much more expensive (around $220 more than I pay now), plus additional costs that are not going to be split anymore.

*sigh* So, definitely no ACen for me this year. ;_;

But, today has been quite productive... I've done half of my laundry already, and I've actually got 4 appointments to look at apartments so far (but there's also a lot of other people looking at them, as well >.<). Two tomorrow, one on Saturday and one on Monday. Now I'm off to do the rest of my laundry and study for my Finnish final. >_>

Only 1 1/2 weeks to go until the end of the sememster! ^_^

(no subject)

Thursday, 18 January 2007 11:20 pm
haraamis: (lifestyle)
Whew.... both presentations are over, and both went well I think. ^^; *relieved*

Now I just have to finish the papers based on those presentations, do the translation I need for Monday, and start to study for my Finnish final.

Work tomorrow and dinner with work people afterwards for finishing the project I was working on in December. ^__^ I have a suspicion that it's gonna be fancy. Mwehe.

Aaaaand.... I bought myself flowers today. Just because. Heh. ^____^

I need to go to bed now, really. But... the newest episode of Bleach awaits me before that. Just.Can't.Resist. ^^;

This and that...

Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] vrl2bast because I'm procrastinating I feel like spreading the love...

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one (or more) reason(s) why Ilike you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love, baby. ♥


Thank you...

...[livejournal.com profile] nereidaia! wow. Just...wow. I feel so spoiled and loved and happy. *smooch* although, I have to admit that the chilli chocolate is...quite strong. *cough* *is wuss*

...[livejournal.com profile] yukari_yuki! Pretty, pretty eyeshadow. And jewelry! *sparkles* And candy! I love Jolly Ranchers! ^___^ And yummy chocolates, too. *snug* Thank you so much!

...[livejournal.com profile] dignus79! That is such a beautiful card! *hug*


I went to see Eragon today with [livejournal.com profile] belina. ^_^ Oh, the happiness. Now I really want to read the books! *makes grabby hands*


Only 3 weeks of school left. two presentations, two papers, and two final exams to go. kyaaaa....

[EDIT] Oh, I forgot: WHERE IS OUR WINTER, DAMNIT?! The snow, the cold... WHERE IS IT? GIVE IT BACK! Today was almost spring like weather. wtf
I have to admit, I don't miss the gray, wet, icky, and depressing weather we usually have down here in the winter, but I can put up with that if it means snow in the mountains. I want to go SNOWBOARDING! *cries* And make a snowman... and... and...*sniff* [/edit]

First of all: *tackleglomps [livejournal.com profile] iniq* Thank you for the package! ♥ So cute! Like, everything! *smooches* Und der lange Brief! *__* Ich werd mich also bei Gelegenheit revanchieren! ^__^

Also: [livejournal.com profile] belina! Your letter got here a couple of days ago, and I all but forgot about it everytime I went online...*hangs head in shame* Thank you so much! *smoooooch*
btw, I'm still waiting for your list....^_~


So, classes have definitely started. I'm not sure whether I'm happy with them or not. I guess they're ok. ^^; time will tell.
One good thing, though. The way it looks now, I'm going to have Tuesdays and Thursdays off, with Wednesday and Friday packed with classes. It's probably a good thing, especially once summer fully kicks in, as walking up the hill to the university is going to be a pain in the ass. ^^; Yes, I'm lazy. :P

And last, nicked from [livejournal.com profile] kedriaa, a meme )

"all-nighter" is called 徹夜 (tetsuya) in Japanese.

That's all.
