So, it seems, no matter how late or early I go to bed, my body now insists on getting up between 9:00 and 9:30. It's.. kind of annoying. Oh, we also had snow, briefly, this morning. I think it's all already melted.

Things I've done this week:
1. been sick and miserable
2. homework.
3. not actually cried.
4. homework.
5. watched films.
6. cleaned some.

Some time today I'll have to head out to get some more groceries. I'll have to double check that I have money enough. Otherwise, it's doing more homework, and maybe finishing up some of the cleaning. We'll see how much time I have today. Thanks to my body, I have more time than I thought I would. I still have to take my temperature.

So, I'm happy to say I'm feeling a little better today. Not fantastic, but better. My fever has gone down a little, which is nice. Also, I just got my book for Intro to Medieval English! Woo, finally! Now I can start reading Beowulf. Since I'm feeling better today, I'm going to buckle down on homework. I've fallen a little behind, but luckily, not too much. At least.. I hope not too much!

Last night, Mark's father came over, bringing groceries and cooking me dinner. It was very nice of him, and I perked up quite a bit from just having company. It was great to have someone to chat with, at least for a little bit. He also brought a disk of pictures from E & T's wedding.

Now, I'm.. going to get to work, I suppose. I should first eat something in the way of foods.. and maybe get a drink. Well, drink is going to happen very quickly, we'll see if I can pick something to eat.

Working on more Middle Welsh today. Still quite tired, but otherwise feeling much better. Mark is, unfortunately, still not feeling well and running a slight temperature. He's gone back upstairs to nap.

Today, as background noise, I've played Kiki's Delivery Service and now I'm watching Howl's Moving Castle, I'll probably continue it with some other Studio Ghibli productions, like Spirited Away. It's good background for doing homework. Admittedly, this hasn't been assigned yet, but it does give me a good start.

I should also get together a menu plan for the next week, with a review of what we did manage to cook this week, but I'm too tired to do so. Middle Welsh is right here and doesn't require too much searching and decision making.. well, it requires a very different type of searching and decision making.

Also, congratulations to me, I've made it a whole week of posting every day. I admit, not always the most interesting stuff, but, eh, whatever. I'm kind of just putting one out right now as well. I don't really know what to talk about, but at least I can usually make up something.

So, I've had a good day so far. I got up early, to get Mark out of bed, as I had promised I would. Then I studied a bit more and headed off for my exam. I feel much more confident about this exam. I had the present, past and imperfect verbal forms memorised and I was much more confident on the mutations. I really feel that I nailed this one, which makes me feel much better.

I also met a new person today! A friend of one of my fellow Celts (though I think she's only a part-time Celt), this person will also be taking Introduction to Old and Middle English. I like making new friends, getting to know my classmates and all that. I'm a sociable person (a good portion of the time) and it's nice to have friends to hang out with and discuss all sorts of things with. It's nice to have a conversation go on for a bit and not actually want it to end.

Today we order my books for class, so hopefully the majority of them will come in next week, for classes. Which, by the way, I'm really looking forward to! Man, I can't wait to start classes. I love that I'm in University, following a bunch of classes that interest me.

I don't know which  meal we'll be having for dinner tonight, but otherwise, today is a pretty good day. I'm a bit tired, but otherwise quite happy.

I'm still not a morning person.

I've been considering doing another ADIML (a day in my life) things, though preferably on a day when I'm doing something other than cleaning up a little and browsing the internet. I've started on my translation for Táin Bó Cúailnge but have not yet gotten very far or done any serious work on it. When I get the first story done, I'll post it over in [livejournal.com profile] taalmisbruiker, if anyone wants to read it.

Here's a preview.. )

I'm not liking my translation on that last sentence thus far, so I'm going to go back through my notes. Otherwise, I'm also not sure of the style I'm using to translate it. As usually I've translated with pen and paper, translating directly into the computer is a bit odd, and I'm still trying to find exactly how I want to do it.

Yesterday I finally got the piano tuned. It had been about a year (a little over, actually) and now it's sounding much better, so I have to admit I've been more interested (well, since yesterday) in playing my piano again.

There are, as yet, no plans for my 23rd birthday. I have to contact people about getting together, but.. yeah, I don't know. At the very least I need to set a date to celebrate with the family, just don't know when yet. I like spending my actual birthday just with Mark, now, and doing fun stuff with him while having a separate day with the family and a different day with friends (mainly because it's often awkward to have my friends mingle with my in-laws).
---------------------------------
Well, actually, some time has now passed, and I have sent off an email to my in-laws. Hopefully we can do something fun (they're good people).

Anyway, yeah.. still tired. I'm going to try and get more translation done today.

Well, hello all. Don't know when I'll actually be able to post this, as we still don't have internet here. Yesterday Mark and I came 'home' to Gouda. Well, technically, I came home first after my Old Irish class ended at 15:00.

So, I got home, checked out some stuff, set up music, then went to go check on the rats (and play with them if they were up). To my supreme horror, the rat cage was open. I started quietly freaking out. I grabbed up the knocked over treat box (as the closet was also open where we've been storing both our clothes and the rat stuff) and started shaking it, as that has always brought rats clammering for a treat. Luckily, two little noses peeked out of the house in the cage. Talk about instant relief.

Tonight we have the dance workshop in Utrecht. Mark is going to come home (hopefully quite early) then we're going to have dinner (Mexican!) and head off to Utrecht via public transport. All with enough time to get there by around 19:00. Though I am vaguely saddened that the people I spoke with yesterday at Old Irish will not be going to the dance workshop. Didn't anyone else enjoy dancing? At any rate, if we have enough time, we might even get some painting done today.

I have to remember to hop off the bus one stop later, so I can more easily pop by the supermarket to pick up necessary food stuffs for tonight and possibly tomorrow. It's nice to have the supermarket be only a few minutes away in walking distance.

Last night we had Asian wraps of some sort that were really quite tasty. As domestic as this sounds, I really enjoy cooking in my own kitchen. I can't wait to start baking cookies and the like in my oven. (Well, technically both those 'my's should be 'our's.) It will be even nicer now that we've transfered our spices and seasonings and cooking oils. I have to say, it's pretty hard to keep an interesting menu when you only have one pot, one pan and no seasonings. Now I can get back to better cooking, though I didn't really hear any complaints last week from Mark or Pa.

Man, I'm tired. I would have slept longer (because I really don't need to be up and about this early) but the air bed is really annoying and I wanted to see Mark off. Now at least I have plenty of time to do things like homework. Woo, more translations!

So, earlier this month our (Mark ([livejournal.com profile] beowulff) and I) doctor retired. Well, he and his wife.
Considering it had been a great deal of trouble to find Doctor Wegman in the first place I wasn't too thrilled, but they sent out a note to all their patients, that another doctor (R. Vrenken) was taking over their patients. Which is good.
Downside? The note included his address, but not his number. This is not good, because the way you make appointments to see the doctor is by phone, usually for about one hour in the early morning it seems. It took several times googling, but I finally found it! I wrote it down for safe keeping, and I also found a site that e-mails the doctor. So, I sent him an e-mail, and called expecting an answering machine. Which is what I got. No surprise there. Ah well, I'm just glad I finally found his damn number. So, I should be able to make an appointment to discuss some matters. All good.

Other news. Last weekend = HELL. Just.. hell. Moving, and arguing, and car problems. It was not good.

Monday, my other teacher was sick, and she's apparently going to be sick for the rest of the week. I hope she feels better soon, as both my teachers are very friendly and I don't want them suffering, but man, do you know that this means really NO SCHOOL for the week? It rocks.
Saturday is the Open Day thing at Utrecht and I'm resisting every attempt of Pa to get us to help him wallpaper on Sunday. No. Just.. no. Mark needs a day of rest! I'm tired of dealing with Pa! Get Erik and Tanja to help you!
GAH!

Anyway, looking forward to Open Day at Utrecht, and slightly nervous about the, uhm, Student thing on May 1st, because I'll be doing it all alone. Not that I have a problem with it, but a little nervous making with the not knowing Utrecht well, and still concerned about my Dutch. (Yes, I'm a little bit self-conscious about it, but that's because, apparently, if I don't sound too English I sound like I'm German. I'm a little too rough with my G sounds on occasion. I understand a whole lot less German than Dutch, and people speaking German freaks me out. I at least understand Dutch..)
Urm, anyway, it should still be fun, because these will be my people. My Peeps! (Mm... sugary goodness..) They will be history geeks and hopefully be as delightfully weird as me. I want to step through that day and get a feeling of kinship. Because, dammit, if there's one thing I miss about stuff back in NYS, it's that I had already carefully weeded through and gotten some good freaks! There are just, well, it's hard to get a feeling of kinship in Immigration courses. Not that it's not possible (or that these people aren't nice, they are!) but mostly they're either older than me, married with children. Or both. Then there's just, I don't know, a whole bunch of stuff. I mean with Dutch people I share a lot of 'Western Culture' stuff (I mean, seriously, do you know how weird it was for me when I found out that Mark learned 'Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes'? Nuts.) Which means I'm a little bit less nervous about bringing up stuff I like. Like horror movies. So few females seem to like horror movies. ;_;

Erm, right, tangent aside, nervous but excited about upcoming Utrecht stuff.

Hey! Anyone want to meet me in Utrecht? :D (I know, a long shot, but I'll try anyway!)

And now I have that song and the stupid little dance stuck in my head.

o/` Heeeaaad, shoulders, knees and toes/(knees and toes)/Heeeeaaad, shoulders, knees and toes/(knees and toes) o/`

ETA: bwahahaha. Found it! Listen and dance!, or Watch it!
Or enjoy it in Dutch

A quick link
Smencils- Apparently tasty smelling pencils made out of recycled newspaper.


Bicycling home today was nice, as when it snowed the sun actually shone and it was much warmer than when it wasn't snowing. And, I don't know, I just couldn't keep myself from smiling and laughing and letting the wind sweep me along the bicycle lane.

It was fabulous, and I'm keeping the images of it in my head for ever, because there was something serenely (and a little surrealy) beautiful about it.


That woman did it again today. I set my gold pen (I tend to use it to correct my papers) on the desk and it was near her. She just snatched it up! She didn't return it after she was done correcting her paper with it (I had to use my black pen) and she even gave me a look when I finally reached over and snatched it back off her desk. I think she probably muttered something about it to the woman who sits on -her- right.
I'm speaking with her if she does it again, because if I don't speak to her soon, I may just haul off and hit her.


Bitch;

Stop stealing my stuff.

No Love to you.


Beyond that, one of my teachers seems to finally have realized that I have only taken one test (1.4) and I'm already aiming for getting as close to finished with this damned to all hell course. She seemed very surprised, and so I may be taking the 3.2 test later this month, because she thinks the 2.4 would be too easy for me.
In either case, I don't care. I'm going to go to University this September if they accept me. I'll take whatever State Exams I need to take to claim to have enough knowledge of Dutch to become a citizen and I'm going to be happy to be out of this course.

Bah.


Tonight.. MEXICAN. Mmm.. today may be fully saved by bicycling home and the mexican.
Yay Mexican!

Also, I'm just going to post all my art here. It will be LJ cut if it is over 500x500 pixels, if that's okay with everyone, otherwise it's just going to be visible. If there is more than one picture, one will be left above the cut, the rest will be cut.
If anyone has problems with that, leave a comment, otherwise that's what I'm going to do.

I am not a morning person. I'm reminded of this every time I have to get up at 7am or something. Luckily, Mark is understanding, and lets me sleep in on my later days. Such a good guy to let me do that.

Our ritual seems to be.. 7 am, alarm radio goes off. I don't even notice, because I sleep through a whole lot. Mark sort of wakes up, and we cuddle for at least another half an hour, when the beeping alarm on our alarm clock goes off. I'm more awake from that one, because I hate it with a seething passion. It's a good thing the alarm is on Mark's side of the bed, because I would throw the thing out the window some day. At about 7:30, 7:45 am Mark manages to get out of bed (he's not a morning person either, really). He gives me a kiss and then I conk right back out until he leaves for work. I don't know what he does, but he's probably getting breakfast, checking e-mail and the stuff. Saying hello to the rats.
At any rate, around 8:10am or so he comes in and we say good bye. Depending on the day, I may or may not contemplate changing the alarm so I can sleep another few hours. Usually, I get up around this time and steal Mark's robe, because it's very comfy and smells of him. Then I zombie around. I turn on the computer, say hello to the rats, think longingly about the bed and wonder how viable it is to call in sick to class (which I then dismiss, because if I'm not ill, I can handle class). Soon now, I may actually consider what a good idea food is. But not yet, because I'm still partially asleep.

Admittedly, this all goes out the window on days when I have class at 8:45am. Then I get up with Mark and zombie around, looking for brains, because.. ugh. I still manage, somehow, to get going and get bicycling so that I arrive on time, but I'm still not entirely sure how I do that. It usually involves skipping breakfast though.

Anyway, on more recent news (well, in a sense) Mark has dismantled our shower, hoping to put up a new shower head thing. Unfortunately, it will require the drilling of new holes, so until we have a drill, we have no shower. It may get a tad stinky in this apartment now.

Also, we finally went out yesterday, and saw Casanova. It was enjoyable, and perfect for a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Downside? We had to get up really early for our Sunday (9 something!) because the power went out for a little bit and it somehow set off the alarm for a house down the street. I have no love for the people who own that house. None, whatsoever. I like my Sunday's starting late, around noon or 1 people, not at 9 in the frikkin' morning. On the other hand, it did mean we ate breakfast on Sunday and caught a matinee instead of seeing something late in the evening.

On rat news, the ratjes apparently think it's ultra cool to piddle on Mark. Poor Mark keeps getting rat pee on his hands from them. It's not very nice of them, but they also groom him, so.. I guess it's sort of sweet, in a rattie sense. (The rats, by the way, have gone back to sleep. I highly agree with this decision, as I know they will sleep until I come home this evening. Smart animals, rats.)

Alright, I think I can handle food now.

I am not a morning person. I'm reminded of this every time I have to get up at 7am or something. Luckily, Mark is understanding, and lets me sleep in on my later days. Such a good guy to let me do that.

Our ritual seems to be.. 7 am, alarm radio goes off. I don't even notice, because I sleep through a whole lot. Mark sort of wakes up, and we cuddle for at least another half an hour, when the beeping alarm on our alarm clock goes off. I'm more awake from that one, because I hate it with a seething passion. It's a good thing the alarm is on Mark's side of the bed, because I would throw the thing out the window some day. At about 7:30, 7:45 am Mark manages to get out of bed (he's not a morning person either, really). He gives me a kiss and then I conk right back out until he leaves for work.

Got up with Mark this morning at 7:45am. Not too bad, considering we usually get up at around 8:10 or so and both end up running late. I have class at 10:40, though I really wish I didn't have to. I considered taking the bus over the bike, but I didn't want to leave the warmth of the apartment that early, so I'll be biking in about 10 minutes or so.
It snowed this morning (well, it snowed yesterday too, but I didn't have to bike yesterday) and I'm going to have fun trying not to fall. Or freeze, as it's about 0 C outside. Loads of fun.

I want it to be spring and summer already. I want to pull on my jean jacket, or just my windbreaker.. or no jacket at all. I hate having to wear so many clothes because of the cold. Dammit.

I'm gonna be so cold when I'm biking.
