- having the competence to calculate the medium temperature of the king Zhao Mo's tomb based on the knowledge about the excitation energy of the racemization L to D amino acid and the present-day ratio of L/D in the remaining tooth of a 55-years old body, unearthed while the archaeological excavation in the year 1983.
The thing I hate about studying Chemistry is ...
- the way our professors assume we can solve 12 cases like that in a 3 hours. Makes 15 minutes á problem, when we keep on writing without spending the time on reading the problem twice or scratching the previous solution or even thinking.
The worst thing is - I could have solved all of the problems if there were just a half an hour more (okay, 60 minutes would be better, I'm a bit slow-going when it comes to plot graphs), so now I'm a bit
I've got a part-time job at the university again! As a tutor for the organic chemistry in the upcoming summer semester :)
(I was really going to stop writing about uni... I failed hard?) Means I'm gonna spent the whole next week running from one administrative office to another: health insurance, tax office, student loan office (Gibt's eine offzielle Übersetzung von BAföG-Amt? o_O") and so on~
And maybe I should stop hearing audio-fics while office going. Oh, and while shopping. I tend to grin like a Cheshire cat and some people do take those looks personal.
I also wanted to describe just how ridiculous my former dance teacher looks in his hotpants but some things are better left unsaid. It was a good kick-boxing evening anyway. Being angry is the best motivation you can get. (can also be cured by sex or alcohol, which are no fun when you're alone, or travelling/museum/nature/sport. And since my lack of money and time made journey or sightseeing quite impossible, I decided on boxing :3 Just imagine how frustrated Crawford must be to get this body? XD stolen from here and if there is still someone out there who missed the sketches, hurry up and enjoy the eye-candies >D)
EDIT: (from now on, it's just random fan waffle, feel free to move on~)
Just finished the 6th episode of my new obsession "White collar" (season 2) and it's still getting better! *_*;; I thought they already used all of my personal kinks and now they come to me with poker and adoptive kids and mafia and oh, so smart, strong, beautiful women and... oh, god, yes (c) >3
(did I ever mention my great-grandfather lost his ancestral home because of his addition to card games? That's why there were no cards allowed till my Mum moved out .. I was about 9 years old as it happened~) Speaking about my Mum - she also agreed Peter is way more sexy then this wanne-be womanizer Neal :3
The interesting thing is - I may love the series to the bits but there is no urge to produce fan-stuff for "White Collar". For Weiß Kreuz I'm still hooked on it, for BBC Sherlock I'm holding the wolf by the ears, unable to move forwards nor backwards with my intentions, but for White Collar I'm just an innocent bystander~
About BBC Sherlock - the dilemma is: I have a few pretty plots in my head, but when it comes to writing I'm all confused: the series was in English, the fics I read are, the characters are British, the original work was so too~ so the dialogues in my head are half in German and half in English, which doesn't help at all.
When writing in German I fully enjoy the process; feeling all high and consumed, but writing in English.. well, it's a hard work, looking up the missing vocabulary or grammar problems and at the end it's still full of mistakes and foolish phrases. Not satisfying at all >_<"
But maybe I should cosplay Moriarty, since I look a bit like him (I'm perfectly aware it's not a compliment... Even so, I'd prefer to be more like Mycroft. At least when it comes to his control-freak character. Oh, and I just love wearing suits :3 )
P.S.: I have a strong feeling that I miscalculated the medium tomb temperature >_<" There is no way it's about 303 K. But since the unit is right (if it would be meters or Joule, I'd be confused but Kelvins are just fine~) there must be some miscalculating ... Argh. I'm really angry at myself for being such a dork >_<"
I still can be pretty dumb at times. Last week I tried to cure the upcoming flu with sport. Well... as you can guess, now I'm really down with heavy influenza =/ I hate it being ill, but who doesn't? -.-" The whole week my brain felt like some pulp and my trough like burning hell, but it's getting better. It's merely a matter of time now.
At least, my sport-rhythms seemed to normalized in the past few weeks, and I'm glad, I could kick my own ass and moved it into a fitness centre again. I have always those winter-time pauses, when I get really lazy and don't have any motivation for nothing... First time after the winter-sleep I almost faded out. Trying to jump around before the breakfast was a big mistake. I can't start a day without a good cup of black coffee, green tea and a rich half-an-hour breakfast with honey, milk, turkey strips on the crispbread, a few apples on an orange, one of those sweet kaki persimmons or maybe an omelette with cheese... Oh well, it wasn't suppose to be an entry just about food, but isn't it a good sign? One suppose to get his appetite back when recovering~
Back to boasting of the winter-is-over-feelings: I hope, I will have my strength back soon and can spend at least two days a week in the sport centre, so that my head will be full of new ideas again. The last weeks already brought me some fine gags :3
Ever since I've got problems with my eyes, I've discovered the wonder of audio books for me. And I still love them from the bottom of my cold-cold heart. Now I'm entering the new level of it - hearing the audiofics >D unfortunately, there are barely WK or saiyuki fics but a lot of interesting texts about Sherlock BBC (I confess, I can't wait till the next 3 episodes are on air) While hearing to this one (The Whore of Babylon was a perfectly nice girl) "Most scholars believe the whore of Babylon was a coded reference to Rome, a bustling, metropolitan city of the time. If you compared me to London, I'd take it as a compliment. This is the same thing." (c) I grinned so wide and maniac that the other sportsmen must have thought I was on drugs >D
As the title implies it's not an internally work-safe piece of art but I approved it not for sake of sex (which wasn't explicit) but for the fine humour and oh-so-authentic characters.
If you are interested, there are several other stories, I found great:
The Dealt Hand (and the Code: The 10 Gunmen) starts right after the cliffhanger in the film and offers an interesting possibility of how it could have gone on >3 PG, worksafe, adventure.
It's not the violin - with a lot of funny series-like hints, a refreshing fistfight (which to my great joy Watson wins :3 He's an ex-soldier after all and Sherlock is only a city boy~) and some Lady Gaga covers on the violin. PG. (from the same author as the first one, yet worksafe)
For someone who prefers a higher rating I can recommend this one: Getting the Message all the fans of
(It's obvious, I adore fayjay as the reader? Especially in this one you can hear her terrific skills. I didn't like the Sherlock from the fanfiction that much, but the way she revives his craziness just gave me shivers~ amazing job! An Act of Charity)
Oh and a vid-rec, I can't keep it for myself:
Sherlock (BBC) & the Great Mouse Detective (BBC & Disney animation crossover >D)
While the BBC show reminds me of a really good AU fanfiction based on A. C. Doyle, the crap that Warner Brothers has released in 2009 was a bad OOC fanfiction. Sure, a funny one, but still utterly OOC. And there's a big gab between the two extreme cases.
And, yes, I love AU's to my favourite fandoms or books :3
Since my Dad was the first person to deal with my vivid enthusiasm about Sherlock BBC (I had to skype with my parents to assure them I will over-live the flu) I quoted to him all the funny moments from the tree episodes and than started to retell the best scenes from the fics. I just hope, he won't search the LJ for it - I had censured them a bit and it could end really awkward for the both sides ^^" (also, my Dad is mostly reading the economic, politics or SF-blogs, never the fan-stuff related ones). My Mum is still sceptical trough - she's the only one in our family, who really solves the crimes. My Dad & I are the scientists, the artists, the creators of amazing yet impracticably ideas and theories, but she's the one who really knows how people tick. Embarrassing but true.
And as someone said, "Sherlock doesn't have cases, he has adventures."
If there will be a few free evenings the next week, I'm sure will contribute a Weiß Kreuz/Sherlock BBC fanfiction too ;-) wouldn't it be thrilling for Sherlock to find the murderer of a crime, which he only got prognosticated from his client? Oh, and I'm looking forward to Crawford's & Sherlock's business meeting *tehe* Also wouldn't Mycroft be a better Takatori? And what if Sherlock is not just a brilliant detective but a bit of a Psi himself? And... dammit, why aren't there any WK/Sherlock crossover already? The both universes merge just perfect!
On the other hand, it's not very likely, that I'll get that much time for writing, not only there are my jealousy and possessive universtiy-wife, but there is also "Tartuffe" playing in the theatre this month! ♥
Oh, and last week I tried out playing saxophone~ It was a great experience but unfortunately I really can't effort paying about 100 € a month right now. Nor will I in the next 2-3 years. Well, what else are dreams for?
Which, by the way, finally leads me to the meme I've caught up a few weeks ago (I'm a very fast one, I know) but first, I wanted to modify the rules a bit and apply it to the music :3
( marry/shag/dumb meme (fandoms: music, APH, WK) )
If anyone wants, I'll give him an opportunity to choose too :-)
But right now, I'm crawling back into my bed, going to hear another chapter of Sherlock adventures from "The Dealt Hand" and will hopefully wake up all fit and fine next morning. The damn flu just have to leave me alone after the whole week snuggling!
And now for the News.
For the next 5 months I'll have to take quite a dubious medicine. The list of the possible adverse reactions is so long, I even got an extra little book for thoughtful reading. One of the most fatal warnings promises depressions to the point of the suicide. Well, I already take the pills for one and a half months and I feel strangely happy all the time :3 Since it was clearly verified, that the meds lowers the level of the serotonin in the brain, I shouldn't even try to think how happy I'll be without that side-effect. Maybe I'm just glad to see my family once again (it's nearly two months since I visited them last). Or maybe I'm in love. Or I just had eaten way to much sweet honey this morning. Or the depressions are just not my thing? >D
Okay, back to the serious issues. The Christmas Eve always means stress and I'm not a great fan of that period. But I had visited two wonderful people, who made this time bearable for me ♥
Now I'm at my parents, which means - food. Lots of delicious food. Oh, and presents. And old films.... okay, the winter can be nice.
The next year is going to be even more stressful then 2010. Yet interesting. My bachelor theses theme is clear now - I'm going to work on research of oscillation-like behavior of protozoa, using atomic force microscopy (AFM) and impedance analyzer. (doesn't it sound so very cool and adult and scientific and... yes, I do know what it means. Well, at least I have quite a good idea. In a few months I can tell you more. After all, it will be really a research work, which means the methods or the direction could change any time. Also, it means that the result of my thesis can end in a set of conclusions like: "As we just demonstrated, it doesn't work this, that and the other way." But I can still starve the bacteria, till I have the results I want... Yes, as a child I really wanted to became a mad scientist. Who didn't?)
The other New Year resolution will be learning saxophone. I'm afraid, I still haven't enough money to afford the lessons. It's gross how expensive the tuition is ._.", so the most realistic scenario is, that it' still be a dream for the next year. Or the year after next... but after visiting a musician for Christmas I can't get rid of the idea. (Also, does someone from my f-list like jazz? I'd like to fangirl :3)
My Christmas host is to blame for even more strange ideas. Cosplay-plans (Weiß Kreuz - Hetalia crossover? Yes, please. Oh, and a special Halloween surprise *tehe*) And this strong desire to travel. (Dear Santa, I only wish for money and health. Anything else I can procure myself just fine. Thanks.)
And it's snowing all the time. So my New Year's Wishes will be all about sun and warmth and all the pretty summer-colors of Spain~
(Those were the sangría tinta (for my mum) and blanca (for myself), my dad had a cocktail, but I'm afraid, I don't know the name anymore ^^")
And a few more photos for my Christmas' musician. The room kind of reminds me of Chopin >3~
( click )
Oh, and a fanart one from a great Russian artist junajull (copyright). Saxophone-love >3
P.S.: Wanny play? You know the famous DeviantArt
Well, now I'm off for a while - family time.
Happy Next Year everybody! ☆
But first things first:
Animagic was less stressful I thought it would be - meeting old & new friends, relaxing down by the Rhine, eating fabulous ice cream (mine was the one with the funny yellow helicopter wings - it was also sponsored by Kuku. I'm officially vow to repay the debt in the currency of choice. Whether ice cream or cocktails or some other delicacy or wishes >3)
"Unfortunately", it felt more like chilling in the circle of friends then like a real Convention to me - so there was quite a meagre gain of photos. I ought to have known better - afterwards it's always maddening when thinking about missed opportunities *kick myself hard* But I'll hope for a next reunion then? ^.~
There were still a few really nice shoots, thanks to our Photograph and my dear past-time Schuldig XD - aoinagaru_kuran and shy but malicious kurukii as future-time Schuldig >3
-> high resolution on DeviantART.
A few more small resolution photos for LJ:
( bang-bang )
And, well, just a normal photo as an answer to the meme, which by the way is still active >3
More train & private photos will follow the days - I just want to keep the both entries separate.. and need a bit time to make me a few cups of tea. And crispbread with honey. And phone with my Dad about our journey. And read tons of books I brought home last week (Sapowski, Lukjanenko, Virginia Wood and Remark: reading was my first love and it will be my last ♥) And cure my cold. And when it's gone, dancing in the rain one more time. And... damn, I love having holidays *__*"
Well, tomorrow I'll be in Bonn, reminding myself of the good old cosplay days; unfortunately, I won't stay for Saturday as planed - so much for planing your life without bribing the Fates first.
Bun since I'll be in Hanover later, visiting my parents at the weekend, I can finally ask them out for "Shrek 4". My little revenge. Mum can be very persuasive and so I had to invite them out, if I want my B-Day present. Otherwise she would keep it. And no, I have really no idea, what it could be o.O"
For the beginning of next week I'll have a visitor (frosty Icicle - mein Eiszapfelchen~) and afterwards I can slow down at last, trying to comprehend the meaning of 'holidays'. I promise to work hard on understanding xD
Oh, well, I should be packing my bags now, so the usual photo-spam will be at minimum for today xD But since I'm such an photo-exhibitionist - a meme, which I had impudently stolen from nyx :
"Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in - it can be anything: from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. Ask as for as many as you want. That way you get to know a little bit about my life, if you're remotely interested in it."
But consider that the results may take a long time ^^" ( I'm just modelling myself on our academics, they correct our exams at their leisure too! >.<")
PS: Animagic - if you want to meet me at Friday, feel free to ask for the phone-number, I'll be there from 13 p.m. till the last train home to my Schuldig.
Oh, and a little teaser for Animagic, made by the awesome Devil-Schu:
Right, I'll cosplay B.Crawford this time. Surprise, surprise! XD But after cosplaying him for three years now, there can be just some random own creation now. Which one I'll choose this time, depends on weather >3
click for the little ( Mafia- Mr.Crawford-cosplay teasing )
Plus, I'm leaving early in this morning. So, packing now. Really.
Off till Wednesday, afterwards I'll answer all the PN's and write all the drabbles.
I'm still alive!
Even through the sun is trying to convince me otherwise - summer heat and my poor circulation of the blood don't get along very well. One more reason to work and learn in the morning and don't neglect the training! >.<" (the stringent necessity is quite the same as a muzzle of a gun at your temple - a really good motivation XD)
But I've finished my laboratory tutorial, still can't believe it. Were it really just two months? It was like a whole life to me o.o"
And in the weekly exam I'm once again the second one. Out of 200 students. I'm kind of proud of myself (and it's not a bad thing). Through I'll definitive need a break next month when the semester is over. There is no idle capacity anymore. (and who the hell is the first one?! Last week it was someone from my course as I can tell from the student number, now it's one of the students in the old diploma degree course. Why do they ever attend to "our" courses? o.o")
Okay, back to the really important stuff - picspam >3 (As always in the last months. Sorry, dear f-list ^^" I'm still way to focused on organic chemistry for a cultivated conversation. I'm afraid, I won't be able to answer properly till the end of July - I'll have my final exam than, you can start wishing my luck right now @.@ )
First of all: Speaking of exams...
