Oh, it feels so good.

I did my homework today. All of it. Every single teenie-tiny bit of it.
I even organized my notebooks. I should take pictures for you.
That's how proud of it I am.
Everything is color-coded.

I have 4 classes, 4 folders, 4 notebooks, 4 colors.
And they're all in order. And they're all so pretty.
It feels so good to have everything organized in one place.
I was having to dig around in my bag trying to find things.
Sure, that was okay for three classes. But I was sick of it.

I did my Spanish homework online. I got 80s and 100s on all of them except for one.
I got 30 on one of them. But you know what? It's not my fault. Out of like 20 homework pages, if I miss one of them I'm... happy.
I've realized I can easily read basic spanish.

El Papel

Unless it's la papel. But I'm pretty sure it's el.

But my favorite has been La computadora. I found a joke for it that cracked me up.

A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'

'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

4 As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.

But that joke effed up my comprehension of spanish.
Is it el computador or la computadora?
Frickin' hick on a stick I'll never figure this stuff out.

So right now I'm laying on my mom's bed, chewing on my sweatshirt, avoiding getting up and going to bed.

We're starting the big move tomorrow. Finishing up our packing. Getting the keys to the new house. All that jazz.
I already told my teachers I might be without internet. That'd be like a blessing. FREEEEDOM.
But that's not the case.

Although my homework was pretty easy. I did my history homework. Both assignments.
Then I did my sociology homework. Easy peasy.

Then I sent all my friends pictures of my binder. IT IS SO FREAKING ORGANIZED.
I'm like woah, I did this?
Now I can keep track of everything! Hip hip hip hip hookah!

No hookah.

Seriously, weed is for losers.
Oh man, that reminds me of this Left 4 Dead joke I made.
My friends were like "GET IN THE CORNER LEE."
Get it? Get it?
Well I got it.

I also made a song about boomers. See, boomers barf on the survivors and lure zombies to them.
"Do you believe in magic, in a boomer's barf? How the smell can lure zombies, wherever you are and it's maaaagic how quickly he'll kill ya, he'll make you fall down before bill can heal ya. I'll tell you bout the Boomer, he can spit real far. But he ain't as bad as the tank when he finds a caaaaaaaar. Do you believe in magic?!?!?!"

I think it's pretty awesome.
Tanks hit cars at people and instantly kills them. So yeah. And Bill freaking heals EVERYONE.
I picked him up today, and he healed ME. I was like, DUDE HEAL YOURSELF HOLY CRAP.

So that's my post for the day.

This almost makes me miss high school Spanish.

So said...

I love your stream of consciousness.

Erin said...

Good luck with the move. And that computer joke is funny. I don't know if it is el or la either. In french, it is l'ordinateur. That doesn't help because l' could be masculine or feminine.

Sheri said...

Oh, P.S. - Tag you're it!

I learned one phrase during highschool Spanish that has always stayed with me: Quitate tu ropa y apaga la luz. Funny the things you remember.

Shall I translate? :)

Before I go, I have a question for you...why do Hula and Yaya both comment on your site? Don't get me wrong, I think it is fantastic. However, it does beg the two halves of a personality make up a whole? Get back to me when you can on that.

I love the computer joke!!

However as the sister of a bellydancer who dances AT a hookah bar, they are not ALL used for pot,etc. This hookah bar is pure old, bad for you, nicotine. If Omar smells anything else he runs like a mad man screaming "Hashheeeessshhh!"

Hey if you were the only person in ALL of CT allowed to have a hookah bar, you'd be careful too, LOL!
