My MicroSD card got corrupted, and gosh. I just realized how much my mood for the past month has been determined (for lack of a better word) by my relationship with my gadgets in general (smartphone, mobile phone, computer), and it’s pathetic. What’s worse is how I’m all sore about being so affected. So I’ve decided to list down the things that made my day today:
I still have a long way to go on this week’s to-do list, but by God’s grace I know I can do anything.
THE GUY IN THE BACK JUST NODS AT THE KID
like, ‘yeah you can totally sit there’
New Pope is the best Pope. He doesn’t hate on everyone who doesn’t conform to his faith. He lets tiny children sit in his big official chair. He poses for selfies. He is a good Pope and I hope he is with us for a long time.
this is actually significant because that isn’t just “the official chair.”
that’s the Holy See.
The Holy See is considered the sovereign of Vatican City. No, seriously.
Every other pope has used a throne for the Holy See. Francis replaced the ornate object with THE SAME CHAIR THAT EVERY OTHER LEADER WHO VISITS THE VATICAN USES. This was an action that created a considerable stir, as one might imagine. It was a significant remark, metaphorically, putting the pope at the same level as every other world leader. No greater a man than his peers.
And after all of that, he sees a little kid run past him and lets him sit in the freaking Holy See.
And no one stops him.
Good man. Best pope.
That kid is living the dream and the Pope is just like “Okay” and the guy in the back is like “Ye kid”
you learnt the word “miscellaneous” from the sims and don’t even lie
No, I learned how to spell it from the same place I learned how to spell learned;
GET OFF YOUR HIGH FUCKING EMBOLDENED AND ITALICIZED HORSE LEARNT IS FUCKING BRITISH ENGLISH
the best arguments start with “GET OFF YOUR HIGH FUCKING EMBOLDENED AND ITALICIZED HORSE”
god bless the brits
For the friend that’s always going on about how much they miss the city: Original Canned Air From New York City by cooperativ.
I’m running on 14 hours of sleep today (slept some time after 5 yesterday, got up at 7:49AM), and so I thought it would be productive to catch up on some academic reading. For the past month into this semester, I had been surviving through crossed fingers and cramming sessions. In short, I have not learned much. Maybe I’ve only learned from my Epistemology class, which I voluntarily took because I heard the professor was good. I was right. And every time something sinks in, I just look at Suan and spaz out because philosophy is underrated. It’s amazing.
Where was I? Yeah. I watched It’s a Wonderful Life this morning, cried a bit, and rushed to attend mass at our local church at noon. Unfortunately, St. Paul doesn’t have noon masses on Saturdays. Bummer. So I just hung around for a bit, then went to the university library and tried to study Stephen Krashen. I got to the library at around 1 or so. IT WAS HORRIBLE. I was not sleepy at all, but I couldn’t understand anything. It was just so bad. I kept on going on my smartphone. Which is why, next week, I will try not to use it so much. I WILL not bring it to university anymore, that’s for sure. I’ll be using my old Java Samsung for music again, and I’ll be manually making .JAR ebooks again. It’s so distracting and irritating. I love the internet too much. It’s horrible.
Anyway, I’m planning on drinking some really strong coffee to salvage my unproductive day by trying to peruse my reading assignments, but I’m torn. I don’t have the drive to study today, so why push it? Well, I haven’t had the drive to study in a few weeks now. This is horrible. I hate this self. Go away.
When Haiyan hit the Philippines and I saw the devastating effect it had on people’s lives, I really wanted to do something to help. If you’re in the US, please buy a copy of Love & Misadventure to help our Filipino friends!
I love you, Lang! <3
Thank you Lang! <3
—Rest in peace, you dear and beautiful man.
