wow so like nobody actually posts here anymore? i went to check my feed (what is up with that anyway) and i can actually go through all the new posts in less than a minute, that's kind of weird.

my dad was filling out fafsa stuff for me and he was like "by the way just letting you know, i had to select 'male' or 'female' so i selected 'female' because legal stuff/selective service/etc., just wanted to tell you, yeah..." which is like okay i guess that's fine and makes sense and whatever and but wait WAIT SINCE WHEN DID YOU START ACTUALLY CONSIDERING THAT THERE MIGHT BE A REASON NOT TO PUT FEMALE AND CHECKING WITH ME ABOUT THAT WAIT WHAT omg i'm pretty excited about this, that's super exciting wow.

a few months ago we were talking about things and he was like "i feel like this whole gender thing is making us more distant" and i was like "wait but no because i'm still talking to you about it like ALL THE TIME and sure maybe half the time we both end up crying about something but i still feel like i can talk to you about it and i still feel close to you and maybe even closer than we were before because we talk a whole lot?" and i think that made him feel a lot better. i guess maybe that's what he was worried about and since then he's been kind of being more open, maybe. i hope. my parents often surprise me, in both good and bad ways.

took a day trip to the city yesterday to go watch upstream color, which premiered over the weekend. i made the special trip because shane carruth was there for a q&a after the screening, and primer is (nominally) my favorite movie so i figured i'd just seen the protomen recently and they're my favorite band and now i can say i've seen my favorite band and also the director of my favorite movie? it was also just kind of a nice break from everything, to have a day in the city to walk around alone and hang out at kino for a bit. anyway upstream color was good and REALLY pretty -- like you can get a sense of it if you watch the trailer except the WHOLE THING is like that, it's awesome. the movie itself is super different from primer, i guess in terms of the way things unfold and also the kind of understanding you have after seeing it. like i feel like there's a bit of a narrative puzzle in both of them which i find enjoyable to work through, but primer feels more like a logic puzzle and upstream color is more like... i don't even know, uhhhh a jigsaw puzzle? like a puzzle of imagery and abstraction, y'know. the thing is that i usually don't care for too much abstraction, so i wonder if i'd give the film as much credit were it not shane carruth. i'll probably watch it a few more times once it's in wider release and see what i think then.

grs (general room selection) happened today, so now i know where i'll be spending my final year at wes (oh wow that is scary to type). i've lived in program housing for the past two years which has its own application process, so i've never participated in grs before and IT'S SO STRESSFUL AUGH. like we had a pretty good number but there was still so much to consider and we ended up getting our fourth choice house (which is still pretty sweet but on a completely different tier than the top three). but at the end, even when we had everything planned out and we knew exactly which houses we wanted and in what order of preference and there was nothing to think about anymore it was stressful just sitting there and i seriously have not stopped thinking about houses for four days, i'm so glad it's over and now i am so stoked for next year it's going to be awesome.

if any of you are going to be in manhattan today (sunday), i'll be waiting on line in union square with grace from about 4:00 to 8:00 for the miyavi concert (WHY DO WE HAVE TO GO SO EARLY;;;) so feel free to give me a call (1 914 874 7258) and you can... wait with us...... or just come and chill or something if you're in the area

two graduation parties in the past two days and it's been fun and fantastic and LOTS OF MOSQUITOES and sometimes painfully cheesy but in a good way.

SIGH so yesterday i accidentally brought my boxcutter to the federal reserve bank

GOOD JOB I KNOW

i'm mostly annoyed because it was a nice boxcutter and THEY OWE ME $10 dammit but in retrospect it was kind of amusing how they TOTALLY FLIPPED THE SHIT and like interrogated me in front of the whole class and completely did not believe that a boxcutter could possibly be used for cutting anything other than human flesh

i mean i get it, they're doing their job, i probably shouldn't have brought a weapon to the FEDERAL RESERVE BANK (just probably;;;), but the security guard treated me like it was a loaded gun and it was KIND OF HARD TO NOT LOL which i doubt helped me very much

also there is a whole lot of gold down there

SO MUCH FUN TODAY

grace, [livejournal.com profile] nanaryuu, and i went to a silent rave in the city and i danced for like two hours to mostly audiobooks/silence/anastasia ost while wearing a banana suit. i can't actually dance so most of it was either bouncing around like an idiot, attempting to waltz with grace, or doing the cotton eye joe. fun. dinner in union square, me still dressed as a banana, met up with sapphi for a little bit then went home. while we were waiting for the train i was like "lol the probability of us meeting someone we know is probably greater now that we're on the platform to scarsdale" and then we saw danny bernstein and UHHH HI I AM DRESSED AS A BANANA let's not talk about that. i also obtained a deoxys.

I DON'T KNOW IF I AM GOING TO POST ABOUT THOSE KONAN STUDENTS, I STILL HAVE NOT GOTTEN PAST WRITING ABOUT TUESDAY fml

found a pretty crappy but still watchable pirated video-camera-in-movie-theater version of the disappearance of suzumiya haruhi, if anyone wants to see it that badly. I WAS QUITE SATISFIED WITH IT.

city today with [livejournal.com profile] nanaryuu and sharon after devin's birthday party fell through. sharon wanted to go to the union square market and we ended up running right into the middle of the annual union square pillow fight (which i did not know about before today). sharon and i stole some pillows and joined in -- i still have down in my hair, i think. IT TOTALLY MADE MY DAY i love nyc fkajlsdhkxjc. stopped by zaiya and saw the empty black hole which used to be book-off before having dinner at a really nice japanese place, then came home and ate devin's unicorn cake.

leave yours here and i'll add you! :)

i sort of miss writing ridiculously long tl;dr about the exact details of my day. i just don't seem to have the attention span to do so lately. i've been slowly writing up an entry about last week with the konan students in an attempt to fix that, since it's ~~~AN EXPERIENCE~~~ and i'll probably look back on it at some point and stuff, idk. it shouldn't be taking this long but i get distracted, fffff. i'll hopefully post it in the next few days or something lol
