Auld Lang Syne
Here’s to the rock star with the crooked teeth,
the cellist, banker, mezzo bearing gifts,
the teacher with the flask inside her jeans—
those girls who made us sweat and lick our lips.
To the jeune fille who broke my heart in France,
the tramp who warmed your lap and licked your ear,
the one who bought me shots at 2 A.M.
that night I tied your pink tie at the bar.
Who smoked. Who locked you out. Who kissed my eyes
then pulled my hair and left me for a boy.
The girl who bit my upper, inner thigh.
My raspy laugh when I first heard your voice
toasting through broken kisses sloppy drunk:
To women! To abundance! To enough!
I am in LOVE with this poem! Apparently the person who wrote this taught high school poetry to a Grinnellian.
LOVE IT LOVE IT.

|Grinnell is CLOSED?!
Grinnell College is closed.
As in, we got an email today at 1:40 pm saying that the school is closed--all staff should go home. All rehearsals, concerts, meetings, and practices are cancelled. Students are being kicked out of academic buildings.
I went to the grocery store and bought Slim-Fast, tortillas, bread, and chips and salsa. I already have almond butter, crackers, ramen, macaroni and cheese, poptarts, beef jerky, rice, and lots of tea.
We need to find a 21-year-old who I can take to buy us booze before Walmart closes, and I need candles for this, too. My car is stuck in the ice and I need someone strong to help me get it out. I need candles, damnit.
The Singers director has taught at Grinnell for 19 years, and the college has never closed as long as he's been here. This is kind of scary. We had the power go out over the weekend and there was so much tree damage. Everything was coated in about an inch of ice and it was both terrifying and beautiful.
Apocalypse Now: Grinnell Ice Fortess.

From August 22 until December 15, I will be in Stockholm, Sweden studying at the University of Stockholm.
I will be studying Sociology, Swedish, and Gender and Women's Studies.
I will also learn to be the ultimate hipster.
Today may well be one of the best days ever.
There is too much ice at Grinnell, and I want to wear pretty spring clothes. Ugh. Current Mood: ecstatic

|Major? Study Abroad? The Ultimate Existential Dilemma?!
Music versus Sociology
Italy versus Austria
Milan versus Vienna
Italy versus Sweden
(Mus versus Soc)
English versus German
Italian versus Swedish
Gender and Women's Studies versus Music
Help...me....!!!!!!!!!! (no matter which, these programs would be SWEET) Current Mood: stressed

How I long to fall just a little bit, to dance out of the lines and stray from the light,
But I fear that to fall in love with you is to fall from a great and gruesome height.
Last night was odd. I broke my necklace but I think i can get that fixed.

Camp was amazing. I'm leaving for Grinnell tomorrow. Mallory, I'm really sorry we didn't end up meeting up. I found out that Chris and Kate were going to leave before I saw them if I didn't get back to Kingston really quickly.

She's a safe-cracker
She kissed me first and then broke in.
I just wanted to say, I want to be able to do that to someone.
Also, am I crazy or is EVERYONE in a relationship right now? I feel like new couples keep sprouting up everywhere.

I'm super-looking forward to this summer. Reasons?oh, let me tell you:
-a new home in a new town
-seeing Amanda Plummer for the first time in tWoooooooo yearrssssssss
-seeing Matt and Christine
-not having to think quite so much
MY FRIEND MALLORY GOT HER BELLY BUTTON PIERCEEDDDDDDDDDDD so cool. I love that girl; I miss her a lot.
Does that mean Emma won't be able to finish her semester? : (
There are so many people at Grinnell I would like to know better, but I always end up falling back on the same people. They're amazing, really, but I should try to branch out maybe.
Since I got dropped from Abnormal Psych, here's what I figured out I might be able to take:
REL-211-01 The Hebrew Bible
ALS-100-09 Hebrew I (only 3 credits instead of 4 but my friend Noga is teaching it)
MAT-115-02 Into to Stats
And none of those sound interesting whatsoever.
Deutsch prüfung morgen. Scheiße. Current Mood: pensive

| Books I should read this summer:
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The Life of Pi

Brave New World
The Poisonwood Bible
The Martian Chronicles

tired of Grinnell.
Announcement, world: I have had a horrible weekend involving multiple layovers, shoddy airlines, and missing Waltz. Please do not try to make me feel bad about myself or tell me to be a better person. I am finishing my first year smarter and more socially responsible, but I am also jaded. I am cynical and apathetic. I will be better after break, but I'm not going to try to hide what I feel needs to be said for the next two weeks. If I don't like something or don't care about something, I'm not going to put up a façade. That said, good night and kindly shut up.
2 more weeks. i love it here, but i want out now......
it was all worth it to see him graduate and see him drunk. my brother's a drunk-fast-talker.
|Thursday, May 4th, 2006|
Deinen Augen funkeln wie das Feuer im mein Herz.
Ich liebe dich, aber du weisst das nicht.
___________Your eyes sparkle like the fire in my heart.
I love you, but you do not know that.
I'm using those words for my final composition for Harmony. I like it so far. Now to write a melody for it...
|Wednesday, May 3rd, 2006|
OH man. Feelin' a lot better. The previous post was a stupid dramatic reaction to finding out I couldn't be in the Latin American Ensemble concert this coming weekend. Everything was kind of building up and being horrible, so after that last straw I posted my super-angsty entry (silly Erin).Things I'm missing out on this weekend:
John Kerry giving a speech on Saturday
Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan (I could have had sex with a hip-hop star!!)
The LAE concert
most of Spring Waltz.
BUT! It's totally allllllll worth it for this single purpose:
To see my brother and Kate walk across the stage.
That's right, bitches, this weekend I'll be in Indiana to be my big bro and his girlfriend GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE (HOLY HELL). And I'll see my parents, too, whom I have not seen since Winter Break. Hooray! My family is so so so so awesome and I really miss them, so it's going to be super-tight. That's right, I said super-tight.
I love you all.
