cicer: (O hai)

Oof, classes. Ever the glutton for punishment, I decided to fill the time between finishing college (last December) and starting grad school (this September) with getting a TESOL/TEFL certification. Evidently most people do the program over the course of four quarters/1 year, but I decided to do it in half that, because why not. Ha...ha? The things I do to myself.

Seriously, though, I can't complain. The classes are extremely interesting, and I've gotten to do a lot of readings on different cultures, which is something that very much interests me. If I'd done a minor (or a double major) in college, I probably would have wanted to do it in sociology or cultural anthropology, so this is definitely up my alley. Also, when I finish the program, I'll be considered (generally!) qualified to teach English abroad, which of course would be an absolutely blast. So I'm having a good time.

I'm also working in fits and starts on my [livejournal.com profile] help_japan fics, and hope to wrap them both up within the next week or two. I understand that all together [livejournal.com profile] help_japan raised over $45,000 which is just...utterly awesome. It's one of those things that makes me hugely proud of fandom in general. We are a mighty force for good in the world! Kudos aplenty to everybody who bidded or donated. I hope they decide to do another full round of auctions, as I missed my chance to bid on the first one. I'm definitely gonna nab me some goodies the next time around.

Meanwhile, I've been wasting entirely too much of my time looking and lolarious videos on YouTube, so please allow me to suck you into the world of time-wasting videos as well! :D





You may have seen this one, since it's been appearing all over the place over the last week, but if you haven't seen it you absolutely must watch this. Dang. White girl can rap. The rest of the duo's covers and equally awesome!




Oh mercy. I've recently been re-watching the BBC miniseries of Pride & Prejudice...actually, I've been "re-watching" it about every other week. (So sue me. I love Colin Firth!) And then somebody linked me to this, and. Well. I laughed so hard I think I peed a little.




Harry Enfield sketches = Hilarity.




I relate to so many of this girl's sketches, it is not even funny. I also sincerely believe that the relatives of the insects I've killed WILL hunt me down and take vengeance for their fallen brethren. :(



Do you have any amusing videos you've been procrastinating with lately? If you do, plz to be sharing the links. My supply is running a bit low, and if I run out entirely, I will be forced to do productive things. Horrors!

Also, happy holiday week(end) to those of you who are celebrating Passover/Easter/Earth Day/Fuck-yes-chocolate-bunnies Day! Go forth and be merry!
