Thought I might as well update this thing. So German class is done but was unable to get into summer session. Boo! Result: job hunting. At least the painful process of that was lessened by the lovely music that is Andrew Bird. 

I just started listening to his music back in October after watching his documentary "Fever Year", directed by Xan Aranda, so I'm a relatively new fan by most standards. It's better late than never, right? 

So I attended his concert last Tuesday at The Vogue Theatre (with only 2 days between that and my German exam but at that point I didn't even pretend I was interested in studying for it), and I had a blast! He was... so... GOOD live. What am I saying? He was more than good! The highlight of my night was when he sang "Bein' Green", haha, and I'm not even a fan of The Muppets. 

You've also gotta love the technology these days because I was able to watch his performance at Coachella this last Saturday through their YouTube live-stream, although I kind of doubt the 'live' part, haha. 

And because I was sick of sending out cover letters and resumes, I decided to make some wallpapers to entertain myself.

So another year is almost over. Finally figured out what to do school/career goal-wise, so that's always good because now I have something not-so-damn-abstract to work towards to. And now, icons!

Ah. Breaking up is a nasty business. Never thought I'd be the one to do it either. But it's really for the better. Aside from that, life is as usual.

Finally, finally an icon-related update. Took me awhile. Life, life, life. But. It's going relatively well for a change, so I'm not really complaining, much. Except for the fact that job-searching is still painful, but at least I found something with YMCA.



Either photobucket or LJ is fucking with me. Either way, I'm too tired for this shit. Collapse )

Because LJ is stupid and my post has apparently exceeded word limit, I have to post the extra tracks on a separate post. GRRR.

Medium: General
Subject: Unrequited feelings / waiting / hurting
Title: This Thing is a Crime
Warning: Really depressing crap.
Notes: This is kind of a Part II of meaningless beautiful moment, which is a mix that I’ve made last summer pertaining to some negative feelings after something happened between me and a friend-and-maybe-more. In January, he came back to town because I was in a situation that requires me to make a difficult decision, and he was there for me. Of course, having him flying all the way from the East Coast got my hopes up all over again. And of course, he had to break my heart yet again. This mix doesn’t have the angry, pissed-off emotions that it probably should (which is weird), but the overall mood is just really, really down, blue, and depressing. This is for those who are on the same boat: you really want to get over him/her (for your health and sanity’s sake), and you know the person is bad for you, but you’re just waiting for that person to call, e-mail, whatever, as long as he/she keeps in contact and hope that he/she will change his/her mind.

Goodness. Yes, I've withdrawn from the Education Program in the university because I couldn't handle the stress and it gave me 3 years to think about my options. So now I'm job searching, which is always a very very fun (NOT) thing to do. Fuck. At least it finally feels like spring, although I couldn't remember if I've actually saw cherry blossoms in real life or if I remember that from a dream... That's pretty messed up.
