long time, no see! (or read in this case) i know i have been sort of absent from livejournal.
some time in the near future you'll get a report about how my life's going, with university and everything.
but right now i'm in need of help. does anyone know anyone living in barcelona or close by?
i'm planning a trip munich-paris-barcelona-bruxelles. i can stay with relatives in paris und bruxelles,
but i don't know anyone in barcelona.
so if anyone knows someone who might be willing to take me in for a couple of days in early
september (7th til 13th, not neccessarily the whole time) i'd be very grateful to get into contact with them.
thank you :)
i don't exactly feel like i'm living my life. i don't feel like i'm living somebody else's life either. it's more like i'm living a life which belongs to nobody, a life which wasn't supposed to be lived, you know, but just happened to come into existence, like an error in time and space.
is this a normal feeling? something everyone feels about their lives? because everyone imagines their lives to be different from how they turn out to be? or should i do something about it? try to get my life, the one that belongs to me?
I'm on a Merlin Marathon. Like totally.
I haven't been doing much but watching the series, eating and sleeping during the weekend. oO (I did translate a section of Greek today, though, for the first time after six months and didn't suck royally at it!)
Anyway, I feel like the show's mostly good for entertainment, but anyway, it's fun watching, so whatever. Merlin is adorkable and made of awesome, Arthur does appeal to my baser urges in a weird way, Gwen is lovely, Morgana is beautiful (I don't get her, though), Uther is mean but I like him (he's kind of hot himself) and Gaius is Gaius :D
Oh well, I should get a life. It's probably not so good that work doesn't start again for a week.

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life, if you're remotely interested in it.
Consider this an opportunity to get me take pictures of the new flat and my new surroundings in general, if you're interested :)

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.
2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"
3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.
P.S. Feeling slightly panicky about my revision. Had planned on getting Homer and the Iliad done today, but of course that was completely delusional. I also feel like I need to re-read the entire Iliad once again ... I almost wish that I didn't have vacation, since I suck so much at studying at home. There's always something better to do. *lol* Ah, well, there's too much to say about this topic, so I'll just stop now.

Oh god, folks, I'm made of so much fail right now, it's not even funny.
So, the Easter Holidays have started and since they're my last holidays before the final exams in May, I started revision yesterday. OMFG, I SHOULD HAVE STARTED EARLIER OR JUST HAVE CHOSEN ANOTHER SUBJECT.
Seriously, what kind of malicious shit is this? I was supposed to be good at Maths. Last year I had some solid 13/(15) credits and thusly was all "Yay, choose Maths for your final exams!". This term though: in my last exam I got 6 (/15) fucking credits and I really feel like I have absolutely no clue whatsoever.
Apart from that, I've just tried to pump up the tires of my bike, which ended in the bike falling on top of me, because the pump is obviously complete and utter crap which does not work. WTF is wrong with this day?!
I just hope that the situation will improve over the next days or else I'm not going to be able to ever get out of my emo-mood again.

I would ask Alexander the Great what his intention in conquering Asia had been.
I guess if I had the answer to this question, it automatically answers a lot of other questions I would like to ask him. And then of course, I'd ask him about the exact nature of his relationship with Hephaistion XD

I've still got this book token that the school gave me as a reward for passing the second round of the Greek contest, so I'd like your recommendations.
I was thinking that I'd maybe get myself James Davidson's The Greeks and Greek Love because I'm intrigued by the topic and the only book which I have about it is from the 60ties and pretty antiquated by now. But apart from that, I don't really have an idea. Maybe I should buy my own copies of Bernard Cornwell's Warlord Chronicles which I adored but only borrowed from the library. On the other hand, I'd rather like to have a book (or more than one) which I haven't read yet.
Anyway, if you have something to rec to me, go ahead and tell me. I'd love to hear what you enjoyed, fiction or not, so that I can figure out which book(s) to get.
