Hellow Livejournal folks [Jul. 24th, 2007|04:14 am]
isabcarv
Here is a cartoon I would like to share with you.



Which reminds me, when are you folks going to make the move to blogs? You know it's going to happen. I call it cybernetic survival of the fittest. Livejournal has an expiration date on it, my dear onions. Anyway, when you do, I recommend WordPress. It gives you stats such as how many people visit your page, which posts are most popular, and even what search words people type into google to get to your blog. (I don't use WordPress, but I use other services that tell me the same thing.) For example, today someone got to my blog by googling "Isa Espresso Maker." I gather they did not stay for long. Anyway, you get to know everything about your stalkers. I won't advertise any further, but if interested, let me know and I'll give you more info.

Sidenote: I'm coming home saturday! I plan to on lots of summer hang outs, as well as some necessary GRE prepping, and reading for fun, which I'm unable to do during the school year.

I was in a car accident! [May. 17th, 2007|11:05 am]
isabcarv
Last night, in the middle of Range Rd! Ok before I tell what happened let me say that me and Pete (who was driving) are, miraculously I think, fine. We just have some scrapes, and I have some irritation in my eyes due to the airbag that popped. First if you remember how the weather was yesterday, it was pretty terrible. This was at 11 at night - ish, and it was raining heavily. We were going up the road, when suddenly this car comes down at an unbelievably fast rate, too fast to make the curve without hitting us on the side. It all happened really fast. There was a second before when I knew we were going to crash and felt afraid... There was the collision, and then I opened my eyes, saw that there was glass everywhere, smelt something burning, and realized we were at the very edge of the road. Afraid we were going to tip over I wanted to exit the car immediately but couldn't do it from my side, obviously. Pete asked if I was OK, I asked if he was, we both were. Then I said "we have to get out of here" and he said yes. At that moment a face popped behind Pete's window asking us if we were OK, that must be the guy who hit us, I thought. Right after the crash there had been such a deep silence that I thought the other car had taken off, but it turns out he'd hit the other side of the road after hitting us. So anyway I scrambled for my cell phone and began to call 911. We got out of the car, glass everywhere (there were pieces of glass in mine and Pete's ears, all the windows had smashed). It rang like 10 times before someone answered which was kind of ridiculous I think. I had Pete talk to them because I was still shaking. We moved to the side of the road, turned on our emergency lights, and looking at the car, I had to believe in God. The car was completely wrecked, what a miracle we came out unharmed!

Soon after the police came and we waited there. It turns out the guy had pressed on the gas instead of the breaks (a formula for disaster). But I think he was already going fast to begin with, and pressed on the gas instead of the breaks precisely because he flipped out when he saw us coming. One of the cops, a really nice one, told me what was in my eyes was probably powder from the airbag, and I should just rinse it when I got home (which I did, and it got better). They collected our insurance information and whatnot and drove us home (both cars, undrivable, had to be tolled).

The car, by the way, was the volvo. So the one good thing is we're getting a brand new car, since the volvo was old and in pretty bad shape. The guy's insurance will pay for it, of course. Pete is renting an extra car for work-related reasons, so I think I'll still have a car at my convenience this summer (although the last one he rented was stick shift!) So I can't be sure about that.

Holy Shit [May. 14th, 2007|10:31 pm]

.......I'm HOME !!!

..... yay. I'm excited to be home. but, unfortunately, I wont be here for long, as I'm going back to rochester at the end of the month to do research june and july in linguistics, on a mcnair fellowship. accordingly, i will also be doing GRE prep work and taking a one credit course called "the culture of the academy". they cover housing and there is a stipend, so it is a pretty sweet deal. the downside? ill be in rochester for june and july. that i dont wanna.

.....Holy shit: I got a 4.0 this semester. I'm not lying, I tell myself. I even took a screen pic to send to my dad. I don't mean to brag, but somebody needs to know! (matt was very upset when i told him bc it reminded of him of his grades... so selfish!)

...I started reading "Blindness" by Jose Saramago, and although it is a brilliant book far worthy of the Nobel it got Saramago, it has got me afraid of going blind.

....I might be going to Boston next week for matt's sister's graduation. his parents invited me, which i thought was odd since i don't know her that well (i've met her, but i'll be surprised if i exchanged more than 10 words with her). yet it would be nice to go visit boston. but then again, it might be awkward to be there since i dont know her that well. so im not sure if I should go!

...as usual, i feel out of touch with everyone. i've no idea who is home and since when. i know diane is here, and im pretty happy about that, so if you're not diane and you feel like letting me know you're here, do leave a msg, and maybe ill call you tomorrow (im not promising anything though :D)

btw, if you don't know what I was talking about in my last entry --> http://rochester.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2204654227

I like the lame discussion between old Ivy leaguers and new Ivy leaguers. I think the group is all about status, and although I think it's cool my school is on the list, I wouldn't be lame enough to join that group.

PS: wow livejournal has all these features now.

I go to a "New Ivy League".

Therefore, I'm better than you.

PS: the internet, like classes without pre-req's, is dumb.

Next Year Housing [May. 8th, 2006|04:30 pm]
isabcarv
Next year I am living in a single again! And it's much bigger than my current one... It's actually huge. It's bigger than most of the doubles on campus. The only downside is that the building I'll be in is far from the rest of the school... But it's cool that I'll be with two cool girls in an apartment-style suite and the three of us will have a kitchen and a bathroom for ourselves. But the most exciting thing is my single.
I decided I'm getting a huge white-erase board like the one that Matt has. I probably won't have as much use for it as he does, but I'm sure it'll come in handy when im philosophizing randomly. The one I have now is too tiny and small. Im going to decorate it really nicely...

one bad thing is that it's on the completely opposite side from where Matt will be living. We talked about it and decided that we'll be taking turns in each other's places. I'll have to have two sets of contacts solution and shower stuff for when I spend the night at his place and vice-versa. Ever since friday, there hasn't been a day we haven't spent together, and well. It's insane how crazy we are about each other. He'll be in a single too, since he got a suite again (all upperclassmen get suites here)... so thatll be pretty damn awesome. Needless to say, I'm excited about next year.

This moment. This. I want to freeze this.

This is the most gorgeous, most thrilling, most joyful moment of my life. And it's all because I seem to have found my other half...
The way it is all unfoldings, it is as graceful as it could get.
