Canta la música

And I’m supposed to be at work tomorrow morning, 7:45. Why am I up? Oh right. I’m in college. I do silly things like this.

To update:

  • I got suckered into being lead singer for a class band at my college’s upcoming celebration of Latina culture. (I’d write Latino culture, but la cultura is a feminine noun.)
  • I had to write a difficult article for my college newspaper’s website about the suicide of a student at my college.
  • And I have enjoyed being back with some of my best friends at college.

Just sayin’, I love singing in Spanish about as much as I love singing in English. I’m at the point (have been for a while, actually) where I can simply think the meaning behind the words without concentrating on what the words are saying. I know these songs well enough, and the language, that I can get beyond the mere words that convey the meaning. It’s fascinating.

Nueve años

En memoria de todas las personas que murieron en los ataques en el Centro de Comercio Mundial, hace nueve años. Que nunca las olvidemos.

Multiple-choice questions

It’s been a while.

Question: Why do I feel dumber and dumber every day? Is Facebook sucking my intellect from me?

Question #2: Why can I never remember what I wanted to blog about?

Question #3: How in the world did I forget my purse when I left?

Feel free to answer any or all of the questions, as you please.

The beginning of the end...

...is at hand! Run for your liiiiives!!!

Well, not really. I've just begun (=the beginning) my senior year of college (=the end). I have a very convenient class schedule, and I think I will like all my classes, and my jobs; in addition, I'm helping launch our college student media website... which is going to be mostly the newspaper stuff with some video thrown in. But it'll be really neat to finally have that website. (I've been wanting one for four years.)

Also, I got all moved into my new apartment with my new (and familiar) apartmentmates this past weekend. (It was a very hectic weekend.) We finally have a microwave but we're still working on getting the cable to work and acquiring a DVD player.

I finally have a little free time to get caught up on little things, and to get crackin' on my big projects.

Found out this weekend that my local Wal-Mart still sells fabric!! I might just go there this weekend and buy some to make a medieval dress.

What else to tell... what else...

...I got nothin'.
