I want to make stuff.
I want to learn more about stuff.
I'm having a crisis of sorts.
The past two days I've just been totally wanting to make things and I have no tools, no materials, and no idea what to make.
I'm not feeling artsy, I'm feeling manual labor-y.
I want to build a dining set, or a bed frame, or write some really nifty computer code, or learn a martial art, or or or... something.
Not more classes.
You don't learn anything.
At least I don't.
I spend most of my time in class wondering how these other people can be so simultaneously dull and bright. how they can sit there doing nothing, listening, all the while trying to figure out what to say to get on the teacher's good side.
Yesterday in a class I found myself deliberately taking on offensive viewpoints just to piss some people off and get them talking about what they really think instead of regurgitating the crap that their past teachers have fed into them about their pompous viewpoints.
I'm being way too negative also. I mean, I've had some really wonderful teachers who have taught me a lot, and who don't teach out of pure narcissism. But they're few and far between.
sorry about that, just kinda happened. I'll put in rant tags for ya.
I wanna make something.
Please, show me how to make something.
put it in the comments, e-mail it to me, but HELP!
show me how to fold envelopes out of pieces of paper, show me how to build integrated circuits, I don't care.
mood: fidgity and angsty
sounds like a quite curious art thingy. :o)
shoot me some functional oragami if you've got the time.
3k is a little out of my price range for this fidgityness. ;o)
You actually working on it?
(inahandbasket at the girl's computer)
Stan, you frickin rule.
And that's coming from both of us. :o)
finally getting a chance to d/l it, should be fun. :o)
I may want more. More! MORE!!!!
although with a thesis to write it's probably not the best idea in the world to be giving me many many fun functional oragami designs. ;o)
I'm voting for martial art! :-p
Jack Man Louie has a school in Philly. Chinese Benevolent Association, I think. Jack man Louie Goooooooooood.
Yeah, I may take you up on that in the fall. no time right now, but someday over the rainbow...
i don't know if you're a vegan,
or if you don't wear lip stuff
in the first place, but all the
same, this sounds all sorts of
chocolate lip gloss:
-3 tablespoons cocoa butter
-1 capsule vitamin e
-5 chocolate chips
squirt the vitamin e into a
small pan, add other stuff and
melt on lowheat, blending with
a spoon until smooth. put into
a container and refrigerate
until cool and
(recipe via beakman &jax)!
bye then. /stphne.
mmm... wouldn't work very well though.
I'd eat it off constantly. ;o)
