I have the mindset of a canoer. I want to go out on the water and paddle around, see the scenery, stay in shape, maybe catch a fish or two. I have no interest in bulking up on muscle or being religious about the sport. I'm really only in it for the water. I have a hard time being competitive in a sport that is only sort of a team sport, and definately not a contact sport.
They have the mindset of rowers. They want to win. They want to get in shape to win. They want to practice to win. They want to be the biggest, buffest, baddest team on this side of the rockies. They are in it for the competition. They are incredibly, almost disturbingly filled with competitive spirit.
I think I need to talk to my coach, because I'd feel bad if I bring the team down, but I love being out on the water. :(

Here are a few pictures. I'm just hanging out at the FLAC house with Enrique and Ricardo; eating stuffing, watching movies, and playing Super Smash Brothers. I did all of my laundry and picked up my shoes and a few other things today... although my room is not spotless. But here are a few pictures from last weekend. They are all girls from my floor and myself!
It is now the third day of my break, and I have yet to accomplish anything other than my Geomythology presentation. Yesterday was Turkey

And to top it all off I'm going through serious withdrawal from my computer. :(
And UPS says all of the tracking information isn't available: STILL!
But I did get crafty yesterday (and I mean scissors, papercutter, xyron, and double stick tape: THE WORKS!) which was really quite nice... because I haven't been crafty in quite a while. I decorated Nana and Grandpa's letter envelope. Envelope art is my new favorite. I'm going to go to the bookstore and look for some other craftiness today... although I'll probably just rip off ideas because I can't justify paying that much to myself. HAHA!
Alright. I'm going to go get dressed and actually get some breakfast for once. I sincerely hope today is pancake day. <3
UPDATE: They did have pancakes. I had 2. They were delicious. :D And I got the envelope from mum. Thanks for the mail! And Kirsten, thanks for the Magazine!

- Green plastic covering for my computer! (see it here!)
I also like the pink and the orange and even (gasp) the light blue. :DSo here I am, unable to sit in the lounge and do homework, and fighting with my computer to get connected to the internet. Because of this, I am in the computer lab of our building. The network blocks me if I leave the computer connected to the internet for too long. It did the same thing with my laptop so I just took the easy way out and came up here.
I'm listening to Tarzan of the Apes. I'm headed to erg at 3:30. I finished my French homework already. I'm trying to determine if I have communications homework.
I saw The Dark Knight last night. It was very very good. I enjoyed it thoroughly; so thoroughly in fact, I sat on the brink of peeing myself for about the last hour!
I'm going to go take a quick nap and get something delicious to drink such as a glass of ice water or perhaps some tea...
I love you all <3

Here are a couple of pictures from the Coldstone excursion I went on with my floor on Thursday. I got a bowl of really really delicious Tart and Tangy Yogurt flavored ice cream. It tasted just like fromage blanc. It was a very difficult choice between that and Dark Chocolate Peppermint.

- Movies. Movies of all kinds. This is the gift that just keeps on giving. Mom generally has pretty good taste in what kinds of movies I like.
- TV Shows on DVD. (Any season of House, Xfiles, or any other show I like. Or season 2 and on of the Dead Zone.)
- Books. Same as above. Mom has great taste.
- DDR. For PS2. I like all of them. There are a lot to choose from (Max, Extreme, Extreme 2, Supernova, Supernova 2, X) and I'm not picky, but if I got this, I would really really really like 2 mats. It is just way more fun with a friend. :D

Here are a few before and after shots of my room last Saturday. The befores are on the top, the afters on the bottom!

My trip to Seattle was absolutely fabulous! We got there yesterday a little after noon, hiked up the hill to Seattle U, and met up with Mariska and Emily! It was really really really ridiculously amazing to see them. We caught up, told each other about our respective adventure over some Vietnamese noodle soup at Pho, and then wandered through the neighborhood on the way back to SU to see their rooms. At SU, of course, we ran into my arch nemesis William, and our mutual hate was apparent. It seems like Ishka and Em are having a great time, and hopefully, they'll get to come visit me next month.
