Moving my blog

Well hello.

I am actually phasing out using LJ. I need a fresh start after using this site for so long.

So I'll be here if you need me:
http://www.marksism.com/blog/

Alternately, if you want to keep reading me on LJ, I made a syndication of my blog.

http://syndicated.livejournal.com/marksism_blog/

I am generally going to pare things down over here, so if you see yourself suddenly not on my friends list, it's not indicative of anything at all :) Just me closing shop.

Snapshots of my day

This was my day:

  • 08:50 Girl on the bus was reading a book called 'Discovering computers'- chapter on 'input devices'. Why did that make me laugh inwardly?
  • 09:22 I used to love the moment when I was completely studied and ready to take a test. I loved that victorious feeling in class. <-nerd
  • 10:41 Nothing says good morning like A fire alarm in a 14 story building with one stairwell.
  • 15:31 I can't decide what's more of a mess this week- me, or the technical equipment in my classrooms.
  • 17:12 Inspired by everyone's trip on Sunday, I am at Epic Burger

This was my day:

  • 23:10 Am drinking apple cider vinegar. Don't ask... it's a folk remedy that works. *Gag*
  • 08:47 Well, it was thoroughly dead on the bus this morning. Don't get me wrong, an empty 6 = room to take up 2 seats with my bags.
  • 10:10 I am endlessly surprised by how I can study something, have it not stick, then go to bed and wake up knowing it perfectly.
  • 11:08 AKLfjfjskdjflskdjfskjgslgslgkjdglkjsldg! *falls over*
  • 11:14 Am not in a good mood. Can I go back to bed yet?
  • 14:01 I did something uncharacteristic of me- I bought a Diet Coke from a vending machine. If you see me with a cigarette, smack me.
  • 15:40 I am just having a terrible day today. Sigh.
  • 16:04 going to go do yoga and try to find my happy place
  • 19:12 Post yoga I'm feeling a ton better!
  • 19:54 I just learned that Kirk Cameron is a big actor in evangelical films. (!)

This was my day:

  • 09:59 Crappy night's sleep plus allergies? Oof. Grumble.
  • 10:39 I don't feel like working at my desk today, so I am sitting at the kitchen table hoping the un-ergonomic setup won't be a huge problem.
  • 11:25 One facebook app I think you should add- helps Humane Society save shelter dogs: tinyurl.com/ao2o88
  • 12:35 Oh, huh, all you people going to Epic Burger... it's right around the corner from my office. Wonder if they have veggie burgers.
  • 13:21 Gah, my wrist has been really bothering me since yesterday. Not sure if I did something odd during yoga or it's carpal tunnel
  • 15:19 Because of wrist, had to stop dong teaching prep for Tues (hopefully will get to tomm). Studying Japanese instead.

This was my day:

  • 23:46 i've had this weird urge to go back to the top of the Sears Tower and just ... sit... for a long time. Maybe I will sometime.
  • 11:46 I finally tried Valois for breakfast. I don't think Obama gets to go there anymore. They'd have to kick everyone out to secure it.
  • 13:07 At the Oriental Museum with J, looking at sphinxes. twitpic.com/1hmgz
  • 14:07 Every other day I say 'I vow to be better at making plans with people!' And then, I don't. I'll, um, reaffirm that I do love my friends.
  • 17:30 Um, V-day coming during certain times of the month means I totally want to go buy myself a box of chocolates.
  • 17:56 Going to go out to dinner with J soon. Were going to cook at home, but he's pooped.
  • 18:50 Moment of being a giddy girl! J gave me an amazing (Canadian) ring for V day! Never had anything like this! twitpic.com/1hvvw
  • 21:19 Siam is the best Thai food that I've had in Chicago and deserves more patrons: tinyurl.com/b27ceu
  • 21:54 We watched the Scottish Film 'Dear Frankie' tonight. Highly recommended.

This was my day:

  • 09:41 Eating Chinese bakery pastries for breakfast and trying to remain optimistic.
  • 10:31 I love that the new Lily Allen album is $3.99 for MP3 download on Amazon. Cheaper than my latte habit.
  • 10:47 Funny paper line of the day "this only Escalades your level of aggravation"
  • 11:39 I have to admit, I love stories of people leaving fast paced successful lives to follow a simple, low profile dream. But that's not me.
  • 13:19 Bwahaha- for Valentines Day Amazon is giving free downloads of Marvin Gaye's song "Let's Get it On" tinyurl.com/d99vnn

  • 10:07 For those of you who were curious what's going on at the New School: tinyurl.com/c8dwns
  • 12:41 I am so psyched. I asked J if he'd go to Moon Palace in Ctown with me tonight and he agreed
  • 15:57 I totally came home in the middle of the day and took a nap until now. I needed it. shmeck shmeck.
  • 16:53 Feeling really freaked out about grad apps again today...
  • 19:35 I love going to the bakery in Chinatown and getting red bean cakes
  • 20:08 Watching a really interesting film 'Beautiful Boxer'

  • 16:30 p.s. rogkjlskgjsgjslfgjsg monkeys!
  • 21:43 Back from my tawk and totally asleep. I also failed to bring the correct adapter for my laptop (boo me)
  • 22:42 My acupuncturist prescriped two Chinese herb formulas and a kind of medicinal tea. I am totally into the Chinese medicinal teas. mmm

This was my day:

  • 09:26 Apparently programs, once they accept you, begin showering you with free travel to convince you to come... I didn't know that! :)
  • 09:44 I would be okay if the weather was 50-60 most of the time. And I won't be able to be outside much today!
  • 15:49 Phew, finally back from marathon class day. I really like 'Affluenza' Cute 90s PBS documentary
  • 17:03 I'm sure this has been tweeted already but I just saw it! Chicago 3rd most miserable city in U.S. tinyurl.com/buodhl
  • 18:00 I am so fried right now that I'm just lying here on the sofa watching the Office (UK) and drinking tea.
  • 19:38 I am really sheepish that I can never remember how to connect my laptop to our speakers.
