Okay, so here is the paper I wrote last semester for my Ancient Mysteries class. One of the prompts was we could choose out own topic, as long as it was done if relation to ancient/cult mysteries (such as the Dionysian Mysteries). I, of course, chose Stargate for my topic because...well, this is me (even though I was supposed to get the topic approved first if it was one of my 'own', but never did). I ended up with a 96 on the paper (yes, out of 100) which I am EXTREMELY happy about - and I did it without citing a single source. 

As with all the others, this was a paper for class, so it had to be done in a certain way and I had to find angles in the topic that might not be...well, agreed upon by others. Anywho, here it is (Sorry about how it is 'organized' here on LJ...the damn site doesn't recognize Word coding anymore and won't cooperate and display the text the right way)

It's been a little bit since I really jammed to this song...okay, so it was last week when I went to bed listening to music, but that is neither here nor there!


I figured I'd give a nice little 'So here's things' post...So here's things:


+ Guess the most prominent thing going on right now is we (the fellow roomies and I) are on the hunt for a place to live next year. We went looking around at apartments yesterday and today. Found two possible places off campus (one that's REEEEALLY NICE) and of course have Ragans considered into the equation. We've made a pro/con list of all the places and are going back to the two off-campus ones tomorrow to clear up some questions we have (and when I say off campus, I mean LITERALLY across the street from main campus - they are right off Tennessee street).


+ In big home news, we got a new puppy. Madre was telling me that he just showed up at the house. They took him to the vet to see if he had any identification (tattoo or chip, etc) because he had a collar but was very dirty. He wasn't tied to any particular owner, vet said. He figures someone just dumped him off. He's a 4-5 month pure black lab. So of course Smurf took to him instantly (good hunting dog and all) and named him Tucker (apparently he doesn't get the idea that it's kinda...weird reusing a name you already used for a pet...we've already had Tucker the kitteh). What's wrong is Smurf is playing favorites and completely ignoring Harley now...poor Harley. He always got more luvin' from me and Madre anyways.


+ Challenge 1 of Round 1 at [livejournal.com profile] shanks_lims  has kicked off!! Sign ups are open through the end of the first challenge, so you still have time to join! And even if you don't have the icon making skills or aren't quite up for ANOTHER lims, keep an eye on the comm anyways. Guarantee there will be much pretteh coming out of it! *nods*


+ Loving my French class! It's actually pretty easy to understand and I've been doing really well. Been acing all my assignments and I got a 94 on my first exam! *dances* I knew taking French would be a good idea - the fact that it's my favorite class this semester is saying a lot.


+ Trip to see the Canucks is pretty much a no go at this point. I don't have a set person to go with, and the dineros situation is even more dire. I am bummed, of course. But I need to, ya know, SURVIVE the rest of the semester so I can't just flit away money to watch hockey. Also, won't be getting my Kesler jersey in time if I did still go, so it kinda takes half the fun out of it.


+ If you haven't seen yet, all new promo for Absolute Justice HERE. We get full on Shanks in this one with speaking stuff and scruffy and HOE-MG I WANT THIS NOW!! A week and a half is TOO LONG!! (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] perpetuality1 for the heads up!)


Okie donkie, I think that covers everything right now. I was gonna mention how my loud twitter had stopped working since they had the system down, but it's finally posted again. So that's all straightened out!

So here's things...


~ Have started a new book (well, started it last week, but that's neither here nor there). If you couldn't tell from the subject line, it's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. And I'm absolutely loving it! I'm not quite halfway through it yet (doing stuff for French class takes up a lot of free time). It was mostly the premise and cover that caught my attention since I've never read the original (not really a big Jane Austen fan), and I'm very satisfied by what I'm getting from it. The one downside is it makes me want to slaughter some zombies myself in L4D2, but I can't do that until Smurf gets a hold of all the stuff to upgrade Lord Danny so the game is actually...ya know...playable on him! Otherwise, the book is fantastic.


~ HOE-MG, how much do I love Gibbs and Tony?!?! Like for seriously, they are just amazing. It was that very Jack/Daniel familiarness about them that made me fall in love with the show to begin with and that's what we got in tonight's episode. *sigh* Such love for them, Tony/Ziva, and the show as a whole! Sad there's no new episode next week (but also glad that SYTYCD is over right now so I can watch the episodes when they premiere).


~ I really hope the NHL big wigs don't frell up and do what's right in the whole Burrows debacle that came out of last night's game. I'm not going to get into much detail about it here, but lets just say HOPEFULLY the bad ref calls that have been going on for some time now will be taken care of. Last night it was just beyond ridiculous. If anyone is interested on reading up on what I'm talking about, you can find three different posts about it HERE, HERE, and HERE. I'm taking the side of Burrows, of course. Biased as a Canucks fan aside, fans and those connected to the NHL all over have (for the most part) been siding the same. When even the broadcasters for the WINNING TEAM (b/c the Canucks did NOT win the game last night - mostly because of those BAD calls) say it was the worst refereed game they had seen, you know something hinky is going on. So the NHL is deciding on it now. We'll see how it goes.


Alrighty, I have a little bit of French work to get done. *sigh* Back to the school-time grind. ;P


~Pip


P.S.: You know it's bad when I, with the house I live in, can't concentrate on what I'm trying to post because a roommate is being SO FUCKING LOUD! My door was already closed so I couldn't just slam my door or something like that. I had to put my headphones on and turn on music - ridiculous.

P.S. (squared): *points to song* SUCH a DV song! That is all.

dannysgirlsg1: (Nucks - Luongo)
Yeah, I won't be getting much time of that in the coming weeks...let's see here:


- I have 21 Holiday Cards I am hand making and sending out to people. I will be cutting down on some of the work by making copies of some of the pieces. There is NO WAY I can hand draw this stuff 21 different times. It's just easier to pay the money (since my printer is out of ink) to make the copies. Less stress on my sanity...since I have so many other things to rip what's left of it away.


- There's my [livejournal.com profile] dv_exchange assignment that needs to be finished. That, to my complete surprise and relief, is coming together with very little hassle. There have been a few problems, but nothing that couldn't be solved with a little quick thinking. My GOAL is to maybe, hopefully, perhaps have it finished before I go home next Thursday.


- When I DO go home, I'll have to help take care of Madre. She is going in for surgery Wednesday morning for a hysterectomy (this is that personal issue I mentioned a while back that I never actually elaborated on). This means *I* will be the main house-keeper-upper while I'm home for X-mika. Add on top of that the fact that I'll also be WORKING over X-mika break. I can't just go three weeks at home without working. I NEED the dineros. Oh, and as a side note, SyFail in all it's EPICLY FANTASTIC TIMING is showing MERIDIAN on Wednesday. Way to make sure I'm a worried mess that day!


- Finals are next week. The fact that I feel I'll do the best on my math exam frightens me a bit. I am so completely unprepared for the other two, though I'm hoping to rectify that problem this weekend with mucho studying (much like I did last year for my physical anthro. class). On the plus side, this means I have NO CLASSES until January. HUZZAH! Of course next semester's schedule, as y'all have already seen, is gonna be crazy. It's very unlikely I'll get to do what I want for my birthday because of it, but nothing can be done about that. Three of the classes I'll be taking are required (including that French class). *shrugs* Oh well.


Alrighty, want to crack down on this assignment. I may just be able to get it finished tonight if the proper flow and drive from the brabbits comes nicely!


~Pip


Also, with Lu's amazing performance and deserved shutout tonight, using that icon to celebrate him! Because...ya know...he rocks awesomepops!

Just a few things...


- Am back at school. It doesn't suck so much coming back to Ragans and my own room as it did heading back to Kellum the past to years to a shared room. I still wish I didn't have to be here, though. Think it's ridiculous to have to come back for two weeks. They should just start the semester two weeks earlier in August, and let us have off from Turkey Day until New Year's.


- Was going to post these thoughts before the twit-post came up, but I was reading about MLK, Malcolm X, and The Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s. I have my third in-class essay tomorrow on this topic (though idk why I'm putting so much hard work into it - the woman is one of the harshest graders I've come across. Got a B- on the last essay...ME, a B-! WTF is that??). I wanted to get a good portion of the way through it tonight. I have like 105 pages to go. SHOULD be able to get it knocked out before the class tomorrow. Either way, I think I've built up enough knowledge on the subject to give another better than B- essay. I just have such a problem reading non-fiction (yes, issue for a history major), especially when it's not reading selected by choice.


- My "good" knee has been hurting a lot lately. I say "good" b/c this was supposedly the one that DIDN'T sustain any kind of damage when I got hit by the car way back when. And yet, I get more problems from it on a regular basis than I do from the 'bad' one. Maybe sleeping in a bed for more than 4 hours tonight will help. I hope it does. Walking to class with a knee in pain is never a fun thing.


That's all I've got for now...off to watch more funny L4D vids on the Youtubez!

P.S. - I'm exhausted...thus the prerequisite post-road trip exhaustion icon comes out.

Got to watch Between Two Fires tonight. It's the first SG-1 ep SyFail has shown in the normal slot since September. So that was very pleasing, especially since it's such a great Jack/Daniel episode.


But that happy YAY feeling is gone now...In a horrible mood, and it doesn't help that this game is terrible tonight. Nucks are only down 1, but still...there is NO offense tonight. They've spent almost all night in their OWN zone. So being down 1 is actually pretty grim. They still have time - they just need to pick it up the 3rd period.


I started the 'His Dark Materials' series for my Religion class. Now halfway through The Golden Compass. My goal is to finish it by the end of this weekend and hopefully get The Amber Spyglass started. I don't have a lot of time until I have to do the paper for this one, so I want to get as much textual evidence as possible. What's helping me get through it so fast is that I'm liking it very much (and that it reads a lot like LOtR, IMHO).


And yep...that's about it.

OH, and

Just wanted to throw it out there that I am now OFFICIALLY in the history major.


Which means I was able to register for classes this morning. The spring schedule is as followed:


Monday

- WOH1023, Modern World to 1815, 10:10-11:00 AM
- ANT2138, World's Great Shipwrecks, 12:20-1:10 PM
- FRE1120, Elementary French I, 1:25-2:15 PM
- AMH2010, U.S History to 1865, 2:30-3:20 PM

Tuesday

- FRE1120

Wednesday/Friday is a repeat of Monday (with the absence of French on Fridays), and Thursday is a repeat of Tuesday.

So the two History classes I am required to take this coming semester or I'll have another hold on my registration due to major. The anthropology class is the one I was going to take this current semester, but was dropped. You know, the class I was most excited for. And French? Well, I still need my language credit and I want to try something different. 


In other life news, I've decided to hold off on that personal 'thing' I said I needed to post about. It's really something I SHOULD mention before it comes up, but I can't bring myself to mention it just yet. Again, nothing TOO serious. But it involves Madre, and y'all should know me well enough to know how close I am to my mom.


Fandom wise, not much going on really. Wanna work on things, but don't really know what. Have started considering things for ChiCon next year (possible vid stuffs amongst other things). I know it's still early (and the damn tickets still aren't on sale - bastards!), but better to have a head start than to be behind (like I was this year, at least in regards to the vid). As for the holiday cards, I have seen all who have commented showing interests. Have you on my list because YES, I will be sending them all over. You guys just know how I get with replying back to comments sometimes.


And I think that's about it - wowsers, this intended short post ended up a bit long, didn't it?


~Pip

P.S. Ian McKellen is coming to campus (tomorrow, actually). I've known about this for a few weeks now...and the tickets to his show/thing/whatever are free, but limited. Didn't know TODAY was the day to pick them up, so I missed out. Yeah, I'm a bit bummed on that one.

I love how I decided to miss my third class of the day (he doesn't take attendance anyways) to come back here, eat some lunch, and study for my History test...


...And ended up finishing a rather lengthy fic I started last night at way too late a time (when all I wanted to do was finish it but knew I couldn't).


Kids, this is why you stay away from fandom. It will eventually override all other options when it feels it's completely necessary.


Or maybe it's just cause there's been such a lack of decent DV fic (or any DV fic, really) lately that I was in desperate need to fill the void.


Yeah - I'm gonna go with that.

Alrighty - I think that's it for now. I need to go wash my dishes (exciting, huh?) and then possibly study. I kinda know I'll end up NOT studying, but I'm gonna TRY to at least! XP

P.S. - October is my LEAST favorite month on SyFail. SG-1 is showing a total of FIVE times all month - all of them in the late slot on friday nights. I'm sorry, but it's really NOT necessary to show horror movies ALL through the month of October. The last week, sure. But not for 31 fucking days! GRR!

Oh, how Glee just kicked it off fucking fantastically tonight. That show really is such a fantabulastic fun amazing thing. LoL. I may need to go and download tonight's episode. What I wouldn't give to see an actual football team go and do that in the middle of a game! (I could see it happening - like as a Senior prank or something like that).


Finally watching some Canucks! XD Well, actually I'm listening to it at this exact moment since I can't really update my journal AND watch the game. But I'm happy I finally get to WATCH some hockey rather than live vicariously through NHL.com and my Google desktop. Even if the Canucks are kinda losing right now (that's how it goes, though, isn't it?), I don't really mind. It IS still pre-season stuff.


Now I won't lie and say I'm ignorant to my own writing ability. It's one of the things, even if I say otherwise at times, I know I'm pretty damn good at. But even I impressed myself today. That paper on Narnia is due tomorrow. 1500 words. Nothing hard, really. But I felt more than unprepared and figured I'd have a hard time getting any coherent argument going. I only read L,W,W and part of Voyage of the Dawn Treader, so definitely felt unprepared. And then, all of a sudden, I found my argument and got the entire paper knocked out in an hour and a half. For some comparison, my roommate started the paper on Sunday and read ALL the required reading for it, was still working on it earlier this afternoon. But yeah...I'm really surprised. I was worried I'd still be working on the damn thing by this time. And yet, I'm not. LoL.


I, sadly, have decided I won't be rereading LOtR for this same religion class. I need to get a headstart on the Harry Potter reading, and I know LOtR well enough to not NEED to read it again (five times already). I WANT to read it, but she's not making it required to read it all and I want to enjoy the books and read them right. Maybe by the time summer comes around again, I'll find the time to give LOtR my sixth read. I hope so. I sooo love the serious.


Alrighty, before I forget, I wanna go check out iTunes and maybe incorporate some new tunes into Remmie. ;)
