1. You can ONLY answer Yes or No .
2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages/comments you and asks. And believe me, the temptation to explain some of these will be overwhelming... things are not exactly as they seem.
3. It is harder than it looks, but NO explanations !!! You will want to... but don't!!!

In other news, The Birthday Massacre -band which I easily got bored of a few years back- managed to catch my interest once more with their new album. I only listened to little snippets this mornging, but the album seems a little heavier (but not actually heavy, it is only some kind of gothic synth-pop after all) and the colors also seem more vibrant (that's the synesthesia talking)
I'm liking this video a lot: :)
Otherwise, it seems I've dealt with my workload pretty quickly today because it's only five and I'm posting about music and watching anime already. Oh well, I welcome the break, I couldn't take anymore reading anyway and looks like I'll be able to finish Dubliners on time too. Two big reading periods will probably do the trick, which I was planning tomorrow anyway.
Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...
Quiet Loner Soul
You are a quiet, solitary kind of person. You probably rely on your few close friends or family members to get you out of the house occasionally, or you would probably forget to leave. You don't like big crowds of people, or being in new social situations, because they make you feel uncomfortable and you get tired very quickly. You need to spend some time alone in front of a computer, book, or television to recharge after expending all of that social effort! You have a lot of personal projects that you like to spend time working on.
You don't spend much time talking about yourself or your emotions. Your close friends and family probably have to try and remember to ask you directly about your feelings, and even then you probably just smile or shrug a lot of the time. People who don't know you well probably forget that you even have emotions at all, because you never get angry or upset. Really, though, you just don't think of your emotions as being important. It doesn't even occur to you to call someone and complain about your day, or to retaliate when someone insults you. You march to the beat of your own drum, and you don't really care that much when other people think. You are calm and logical in nature, and reacting emotionally to things simply doesn't come naturally to you. Perhaps you have been hurt or embarrassed in the past, which makes you afraid to share your feelings. Or maybe you are just naturally that way.
At the same time, you are not uncaring, and you are aware of the feelings of other people around you. When a close friend or a family member is going through a rough time, you are sympathetic and probably wish you knew how to make it better.
Your daemon's form would reflect your solitary, calm, logical nature, but would not be aggressive or intimidating in appearance. He or she would probably spend time talking to you constructively about how to solve problems, or simply watching over your shoulder while you indulge in your hobbies.

If your life were a movie...
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing (excluding instrumentals)
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...
A real update to come sometime today!

Anyway, all of this to say that from now on, on fridays I'm shutting myself off and won't do any heavy work. And I will also allow myself to go out (without feeling guilty because I'm not working), which I rarely allowed myself before. So today because of some miracle it didn't rain and I got to discover fanamanga. The place is really cute (I had onigiri and bubble tea for lunch :)) and also allows people to read and do some work, so it's kind of a shop and a cafe at the same time. I also got a new bag because
- Read the essay on the Irish Revival for Joyce class
- Finish the Wollstonecraft companion
- Finish the Austen companion
- Read as much as possible in the Vindication
- Start Northanger Abbey and Sense and Sensibility
- Write my text for the fanzine of the anime club *needs to be done by wednesday*
- Try to see if I can go to the anime convention in October
- Go and see what Fanamanga is all about *if weather allows... I'm practically sure to get lost before I find the place*
- anime club meeting wednesday evening which is...
-... at the same time as the new uni year show. *The only thing I really want to check out is Die Mannequin, which is quite late in the evening, so I can probably do both*
- Read some more material on Ireland for Joyce class
- find time to go to the gym at least twice
- general assembly for the anime club
Aaaand it's only the second week of class! I know I added club activities to my schedule, but still... normally it doesn't get this busy until much later...
But enough of my Internet angst. As certain of you might have heard me complain of before, Quebec city is absolutely dreadful in the manner of providing us metal heads with our albums on time, so I was most pleasantly surprised when on my way back from work I found that Tarja Turunen's new album was already on the tabelts. This being said
And that Whitesnake cover is just awesome. Heavy choirs and symphonic arrangements in Still of the Night makes me speechless.
And because that post wouldn't be complete without some video spammage...
… And at 6:15 this morning I was woken by the sounds of the initiations that had already started (though it’s an improvement, because if I remember correctly last year the noise began at 5:30 in the morning). So I got up –way earlier than I intended- to cheesy dance music from my elementary school days and the sight of people in crazy costumes out the window. That’s the beginning of a new semester for you. Ironically, when I got out –at around 9- all the music had stopped and there wasn’t a sound except for normal noises and an occasional outburst of cheering here and there. With that, I got my agenda and I’m proud to announce that the Graduate agendas don’t look so ugly as the undergrad ones. I also joined the anime club on a whim, let’s see how much time I’ll have to actually go to the meetings (I need to express my inner Otaku:P).
Later today I also have my first James Joyce class. When I was at my parents’ I managed to read Portrait of a Young Man without it being too painful, so I don’t know how this class will be or if I’ll understand anything of the novel… Ulysses has a reputation of being difficult. And I also need to get information on how the research classes will work. Speaking of that, I’m seriously thinking about changing the topic of my thesis and going back to what I was thinking about when I first applied to the Masters program. This time, I would like to do something about women in literacy in 19th century England through the gothic and victorian genres using Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey and Mary Wollstonecraft’s essays. But I don’t know if I can change my mind, because I wrote my application with the African American project in mind, so maybe I’m expected to do that. Either way will be fine, but I’m more attracted to the gothic and the Victorian.
I’m hungry… I guess I’ll eat something.
Freedom feels nice. :)
In other news I'm thinking of deleting lots of my online accounts before I get a new computer. Like myspace, tumblr, twitter and Interpals. The first three I never use and for the other I won't be looking for new pals until next summer, so I don't really need it. Also, even if I'll have a computer at home again soon I still want to diminuish the time I spend on the Internet and do other things.
Hmmm... I think my earphones are failing me again...
So anyway, I'm glad that all of this will be over in about two weeks and that I'll be able to come back to my normal life. I got my papers for next semester and everything is ok... though - yes I'm very last minute- I'm seriously considering picking another language course instead of Japanese. The more I think of having another semester of it and the more I feel depressed. I'm going to check what classes still have room in them and the cost of the books and see what I can do...
And my parents got me a new computer! :D Finally! :) They are still installing stuff on it, but I should have it in about two weeks when my dad starts his holiday. Then my parents will come over and install everything. :) I'm very much looking forward to having a computer at home again, it gets annoying to leave home everytime I want to use the Internet... and I will be able to start seriously rebuilding my music collection, so YAY! :) (Though I still want to buy more cds...)
And that's about it for me a the moment... the weather is making me sleepy...
