Since I can't do anything productive I might as well update.

Life got really sad without a stable income because ironically, I felt an extreme urge to shop after I ran out of the money. I mean, I was never obsessed with shopping or anything and then bam. And it's been only like... two months. heh. I'm having a job interview tomorrow and if I get it, hopefully that will allow me to go see The Parlotones in November. If they pay above the minimum wage, obviously. lol. Fingers crossed.

I started sleeping a bit more regularly I have to say, but now I get nightmares practically every night. If someone claims they can hear your screams through the wall, you know it's not good :-/

Also, my head starts to seriously hurt due to the construction works outside which have been going on for weeks now. I shut all the fucking windows and still hear those horrible noises arghh. Not really helping with the concentration issues, too.

I've started reading 1984 but... I really don't like it so far. I won't give up on it just yet, but there's a slight chance I will just drop it somewhere on the way.

Thing that really made me smile today... Friends. omg. I am going to download and watch the early seasons at last. Will try to do it as soon as possible before I get buried under massive amounts of uni work :(

I've been playing a proper piano during the last couple of days which I haven't done in ages. That's what I picked out a few hours earlier:


which sort of shows my state of mind at the moment HA.

Onto happier subject... SEASON 3 GOSSIP GIRL PREMIERE YESTERDAY OMG. It needs to download FASTER. This will probably be the highlight of my day, srsly. I couldn't find anything to keep me busy with until mom left the house and I could finally play. I want to go back in time to the day when the TV alone could make me feel good lol.


Mmm yeah, that's it for now.

Wrath

- You know, the ironic part of all this is, I'm the one who ended up with something I wanted. Lana still has feelings for me.
- Don't flatter yourself, Lex. Those powers made her obsessed.
- Exactly. And passion like that doesn't come out of the blue. What do you think is stronger, Clark - her hatred for me or her affection for you?
- She was angry. But eventually she'll move on.
- Don't hold your breath. Funny thing about obsession is, it outlives everything. Even love.


This dialogue is cheesy and thought provoking at the same time.

Your result for The 4-Variable IQ Test...

Visual

20% interpersonal, 35% visual, 10% verbal and 35% mathematical!


Your strongest type of intelligence is Visual. You thrive on spatial thinking, shapes, patterns, and form. You're unlikely to be blind. You can probably think in 3D very easily. You are very likely to be attractive, based on only my most rudimentary anecdotal evidence. And you are likely to appreciate a good body in a lover.


Your specific scores follow. On any axis, a score above 25% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 25% means you use it less. It says nothing about cognitive skills, just your interest.


Your brain is roughly:


20% Interpersonal


35%Visual


10%Verbal


35%Mathematical



Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice to the world.


1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 20%.


2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 25%.


3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 50%.

Passion

Hot! Passion is your greatest virtue


Passion is an intense emotion that compels feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for anything, and that often requires action. Get that? Requires action. It's very likely you submit to your deepest needs and live life with a flair few others achieve, but many envy. All 7 virtues are a part of you, but your passion runs deepest.


Passionate types: artists, writers, composers, athletes, and heroine addicts.


Your raw relative scores follow. 0% is low, and 100% is perfect, nearly impossible. Note that I pitted the virtues against each other, so in some way these are relative scores. It's impossible to score high on all of them, and a low score on one is just relatively low compared to the other virtues.


YOUR VIRTUES


20% Compassion


44% Intelligence


0% Humility


56% Honesty


50% Discipline


57% Courage


58% Passion

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...

Linguistic

18% Logical, 29% Spatial, 51% Linguistic, 33% Intrapersonal, 14% Interpersonal, 27% Musical, 20% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 37% Naturalistic!


"Verbal-linguistic intelligence has to do with words, spoken or written. People with verbal-linguistic intelligence display a facility with words and languages. They are typically good at reading, writing, telling stories and memorizing words and dates. They tend to learn best by reading, taking notes, listening to lectures, and via discussion and debate. They are also frequently skilled at explaining, teaching and oration or persuasive speaking. Those with verbal-linguistic intelligence learn foreign languages very easily as they have high verbal memory and recall, and an ability to understand and manipulate syntax and structure.


Careers which suit those with this intelligence include writers, lawyers, philosophers, journalists, politicians and teachers." (Wikipedia)


(But I am actually rubbish at memorizing dates)

Your result for The Exercise Personality Test...

Running

0% Patience, 8% Experience and 18% Independence!


You are an exercise-experienced individual who needs something that is challenging and quick. You are focused and independent - you enjoy working on improving yourself and you are willing to push yourself as much as is required. However, you've got a little of a patience issue, so it's probably not a good idea for you to get too involved in slow-paced workouts like yoga and pilates (though it can never hurt to incorporate as many types of exercise as possible!). Running seems to be the best bet for you.


Running is a fabulous exercise for your heart and it burns plenty of calories. It's also one of the simplest, in a way - all you need to get started is some good running shoes and some motivation. However, it does take a considerable amount of time and effort to build up the endurance necessary to cover longer distances. Increasing your speed can be a lot of work, too, though interval training can be a huge asset here. In any case, the rewards are well worth the work, if running is done properly. Beyond the joys of the "runner's high", your mental and physical health can improve immensely.


Other types of exercise you may enjoy include swimming and mountain biking.


(Haha, 0% patience. That is so true)

Your result for The Brutally Honest Personality Test...

Crackpot - INTJ

40% Extraversion, 60% Intuition, 67% Thinking, 60% Judging


People hate you.

Paris Hilton hates Nicole Richie. Lex Luthor hates Superman. Garfield hates Mondays. But none these even rates against the insurmountable hate people have for you.


I mean, you're pretty damn clever and you know it. You love to flaunt your potential. Heard the word "arrogant" lately? How about "jerk"? Or perhaps they only say that behind your back.


That's right. I know I can say this cause you're not going to cry. You're not exactly the most emotional person. You'd rather spend time with your theoretical questions and abstract theories than with other people.


Ever been kissed? Ever even been on a date? Trust me, your inflated ego is a complete turnoff with the opposite sex and I am telling you, you're not that great with relationships as it is. You're never going to be a dude or chick magnet, purely because you're more concerned with yourself than others. Meh. They all hate you already anyway.


How about this - "stubborn"? Hrm? Heard that lately? All those facts which don't fit your theories must just be wrong, right? I mean, really, the vast amounts of time you spend with your head in the clouds... you're just plain strange.
