novin_ha: Buffy: gotta be a sacrifice ([music] tori text peace love)
Sometimes I feel like I don't fit in at home any more. Maybe I've seen too much of Other to be able to just make do with Familiar. It's fun for a couple of days but then I go stir crazy and there are no magic fingers for me to take the tension away ;p It's not been a week yet and maybe I haven't had a fight with Mum yet, but there was a small spat, one could say, when the issue of homosexuality arose (again) (and it was Mum whose joke started it). Anyway, Sister expressed the opinion that "but it wasn't happening so often in the past", I told her that well, it's always been present, simply not spoken of too much, Mum informed me I was not to speak of my weird interests under her roof, I used the terms "discourse" and "oppression" and not let her know that it actually does hurt me when she expresses her homophobia, and no, I don't think the fact the only lesbian she's ever known might have been a pedophile explains her.

My best friend Shamak never has time for anything anymore. So I sit at home, Home!Town, 10 minutes away, and am bored out of my mind; she sits in hers, does not have time for friends and is reading her biology textbook. Never getting married to a doctor*. They must have been perverted by their studies, it's impossible to stay sane living like that. My life has to be awesome, really, I'm not trying to be a doctor, I still have time to read, watch TV and for my friends. ::jumps up and down::

In other news, I've finished Wolves of Calla and this Dark Tower thing is getting better and better. I've started Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood and I'm liking it verily ;)

*Unless it's The Doctor, obviously. The similarity of names is surely coincidental and even if not, well, exceptions may be made.

ETA: I get a feeling what I need to feel better is a night session with a bar of chocolate and fanfiction. Chocolate? Check...

In her mock English maturity exam, my sister was supposed to write an explanation why she had to come back earlier from a trip abroad.

My sister wrote from a male point of view. Her (his? ;)) wife went into labour and s/he had to come back.

I'm proud of her for having such a great original idea, and being able to write from a different point of view. But on the other hand, what kind of husband goes on a trip abroad when his wife is in the third trimester?

/random.

Otherwise - yay for merry_smutmas, hgss_exchange and all that jazz. December. This is better than advent calendars :D

While I was at home I went to the library to return a book I was already late with. I saw Guy Gavriel Kay's Tigana on the shelf and, knowing my Mum hadn't yet read it, borrowed it and left with her when I returned to Uni!Town.

This morning, Mum called me to praise me for finding out about an opportunity to receive additional 'scholarship' money in June and to tell me: )

Apart from that, I did my presentation for Conversations (Vocabulary class) and received a 4. It's not terrific, however I was the first student to be asked and the Teacher did give me a truly glowing praise - he said my pronunciation was pleasant, my grammar immaculate (OMG!!!11!!), my vocabulary advanced (he praised my adverb usage!) - and he also likes Tori Amos, about whom I spoke. Still, apparently my hesitations are still Polish (dammit, I thought I was getting better at that) and my intonation was too flat (I think that was the stress factor).

He said he did not hear one article out of place or tense misused (and he said I used many of them, naturally, without hesitation).

I feel light-headed right now :D

By the way, I've just heard Shakira's new song "My Hips Don't Lie" and am in love with the title. Such a rotfl thing, really.

I went to the dreaded family meeting. My Mum told me I was to buy proper presents "from the whole family". I hate buying gifts. It wasn't that bad, though - I got a nice pendant for my aunt and "Momo" by Michael Ende for my cousin (she's only 7, a bit young for that book, but I hope she'll like it, and there are just so few good books for children sold nowadays).

I had another long argment with my uncle, who wants to make me a better person, was terrified by the sheer amount of energy their three children possess (scary, that trio) and came back early enough to watch The Recruit and perv over Pacino. I really ought to change my taste in men, by a generation or two.

Meme, because it's Saturday and why not )
