    Hey, ich lese gerade Tintenherz auf Deutsch! Es ist toll, eine Geschichte zu lesen, die nicht so ernsthaft literarisch ist, wie die, die wir im Senior Sem gelesen haben :)

    WANTS I, YOUR COOKIE.

    i've heard of the yoga class, intense! but not quite sure what gliding is? is it like hang-gliding?

    You can read German? Cool. I really like the Inkworld series!

    Erin 5/16/2010 10:06 AM

    I will say that my summer reading list is forty books and growing...If I also get a job, which I hope to, I'll be well occupied

    Not compromising myself while still managing to put other people first... not making excuses... committing :)

    Brian - Ich kann's mir vorstellen. :) Übrigens, herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Studiumabschluss!

    Danielle - Ha! Well, if you make it to San Francisco, I'll buy us two.

    pinkapplecore - Not quite. The sailplane kind, not the foot-launched kind.

    Milli - I used to be a German major. Still love German. Yes, I've heard a lot of good things about it.

    Erin - Lunch with my dad in the redwood grove in the botanical gardens here. :)

    Jenica - Whew! But yes, there is NO time like summer for reading. A job would be nice. Good luck to us.

    geekspawn - Sounds most admirable. I'm sure you've been pondering up to those resolutions for a while.

    Play a ton of Frisbee (and get lots better at it), continue to have nice, normal, unintimidated conversations with guys, get deep in Scripture, and really writing on a project again. <3

    Edge 5/16/2010 6:38 PM  

    Oh!

    And btw, I have given you an award :) http://soyescritora.blogspot.com/2010/05/pals-award.html

    Best Macaroons ever: Ina Garten's recipe. Look it up on food network... yummm.

    Noël De Vries 5/17/2010 11:22 AM  

    Flourish in a foreign country. (Albania + Ukraine)

    Holly 5/17/2010 12:54 PM  

    Edge - Ooh, what's the project?

    Je Reve - Ah, macarons and macaroons are vair different, more than the one letter would suggest! However, I may be in the mood for those sometime...

    Noel - How much longer in Albania?

    Danielle 5/17/2010 5:30 PM  

    you're cruel, that's too great a temptation when i have no control over my travel plans! ;)

    i will most likely be in san francisco first week of august though, i wish you were going to be there.

    Debbie Barr 5/17/2010 6:42 PM  

    Great goals! I really want to try making macarons as well, but I've never had one! I don't know what they're supposed to taste like or their texture, so I'm a little nervous about trying.

    Holly 5/18/2010 7:51 PM  

    Danielle - Email me with the dates?

    Debbie - Oh, more's the pity! No snooty/cutesy bakeries around you? They're sweet, with a sort of shell on the outside that bruises/breaks easily, but soft inside.

    bikram yoga, let's do it... although it scares me (and i feel resistance almost every time, though they claim it is a great "cure" or help for depression AND a sort of "miracle practice" for all sorts of body ailments and "diseases" and conditions and such...

    and the promise of weight loss, BLAH, to which i say: bah humbug! (and i always ate more when i practiced, like a LOT more... i was ravenous, and i am skeptical of its "calorie-burning" claims anyway)

    but it feels like intense meditation + physical at the same time

    but at the same time i sometimes pushed myself way too hard, would actually end up getting my back hurting (like through my ribs, a literal pain) and getting rashes from the sweat.

    BUT... it relieved sooo much stress (which i didn't even admit was stress back then) and did great for my shoulders. but i got really perfectionist and ED-relapse-y about it, so i'm cautious of restarting and wanting to be crazy and go "OK NOW I HAVE TO DO THIS EVERY DAY / OR TWICE EVERY DAY !!! THAT'S A CHALLENGE"

    i cannot uphold any daily practice, even writing, the rigidity kills me...

    the parenthetical never ends!
