VIA MSN IM:

Nik says:

Stephanie [ Raylwen ] says:

Stephanie [ Raylwen ] says:

I rock.
You don't.

It's Newton's third law.

He added a third law of physics on his deathbed.

Believe me, I know. I was there.

Shit.

12:42AM - SEPT 19: Official Talk Like a Pirate Day

Thought of in 1995 by a few men playing racquetball.
Made public by the grand syndicated columnist Dave Barry in 2002.

Every September 19th we have:
TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!

It was fun yelling "Avast!" and "Ahoy, matey!" and "Shiver me Timbers!" around campus all afternoon. And someone was dressed up for it! I cheered with an "Arrrrrrrrr!"

I'm tributing this to the day:

All right.
So I haven't been really keeping up with LJ at all. Reading all your entries or writing any myself. Trying to start again, just to keep track of all you peeps.

My last post, although humorous, kinda abruptly stopped. So here is a really short update. Maybe I'll get into something detailed later.

That last post was me being offered a full-time internship with the Miami Herald this summer. I'm working with online/multimedia. More details on that when I can.

Was really nervous the first week, but you know you love your job when you want to work more hours than they can afford to pay you.

Kinda become my life. 10-7 shift, and an hour each way makes for a long day. I crash at night.
Then a few odd hours, i.e. working on editing audio late after the Miami Heat press conferences.

Sorry to all of you whom I have still not seen. You need to call me again and bug me, I'll MAKE time.

Almost everyone seems to be traveling to lands far away. Being here in Coconut Creek again is an odd feeling. Like college never existed, in a sense. Anyway, I hope all of you people are doing well. I have seen nobody since I came home from school.

There's more, but I'm too tired to think of it right now.

11:28AM - The past two weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster...

...but these are the things that make us human.

Okay.
SCENE: My dorm room. Desk.
TIME: 6:15 p.m. Sun is setting outside.
ACTION: I am gathering my belongings together, the soda and chips and sign-in sheet for the meeting, so that I am ready to leave in 45 minutes. Frequently glancing at my IMs.

After the last meeting, I (thought I) left a stash of foam cups in Niks room from the last meeting. (Apparently not, he could not find them.)

The IM:

D7 (6:20:47 PM): i need to make this list
Sbsteph85 (6:20:51 PM): believe me, I know how hard it is to get work done before the sun goes down, it's like our body is trained not to
Sbsteph85 (6:20:55 PM): yeah, that's a good idea
D7 (6:21:43 PM): mm
D7 (6:22:09 PM): I think I'm going to go to this scott ritter speech

Sbsteph85 (6:24:23 PM): OMG

In this acausal world, artists are joyous. Unpredictability is the life of their paintings, their music, their novels. They delight in events not forecasted, happenings without explanation, retrospective.

Most people have learned how to live in the moment. The argument goes that if the past has uncertain effect on the present, there is no need to dwell on the past. And if the present has little effect on the future, present actions need not be weighed for their consequence. Rather, each act is an island in time, to be judged on its own.

Families comfort a dying uncle not because of a likely inheritance, but because he is loved at that moment. Employees are hired not because of their resumes, but because of their good sense in interviews. Clerks trampled by their bosses fight back at each insult, with no fear for their future. It is a world of impulse. It is a world of sincerity. It is a world in which every word spoken speaks just to that moment, every glance given has only one meaning, each touch has no past or no future, each kiss is a kiss of immediacy.

Knowledge is power, and power corrupts. So study hard and be evil.

Good luck, everyone.

We live in a square mechanical world. We rejoice in this quaint quarter that we have created for ourselves; the smooth solid touch of these edifices assures us. Thou shalt not venture into any unusual trail, thou shalt not be subjected to foreignity, thy neighbor shalt reflect thyself. Aliens cannot reach you here. Look up to see the universe extend, boundless, but intangibility mystifies ad infinitum.

Estranged myths taint our inner sanctuary, but the man in the fountain watches aliens toss a coin into the water, too. Observe the waves of the penny ripple outward, resounding, resounding. A signal in the movement. Sending transmission: The paths are all connected, unrevealed by these labyrinth walls. Tell a story, ask for directions. They keep perfecting fission when our atoms need fusion.

We are all just humans on this planet called Earth.

Life is a highway; I wanna ride it all night long.

So, the best thing about heading to Target Copy to compile your portfolio at 5 a.m. is that when you get back you still have your killer spot because nobody else is on the road at the same time as you.

On a similar note, I'm finishing up my cover letter, and I couldn't get the last paragraph the way I wanted. Then, I KNEW I had it. This is going to the Sun-Sentinel for a killer summer 10-week program, hopefully I'll get it, where I'm a 40 hr/week paid staffer, making 500 a week. In any case, tell me what you think:

"I look forward to discussing how my passion can infuse your organization with the neverending drive to create the greatest daily publication this continent has ever known. In fact, my shit is so hot that it'll make you orgasm. Twice.

You can contact me at (954) 555-5555 or e-mail me at showriter4@gmail.com.

Sincerely,
Stephanie Rosenblatt
Enclosure"

OMG.
The solutions to our Accounting midterm were posted.
I think I achieved at least 70 points, if not more, on my own.

And with the curve, that might be an A.

I'm, um, excited, to say the least.
I hope I have good reason to be?

Stolen from Danielle.
And mine are funnier.

type "(your name) needs" into google.com and then post the 5 funniest things that come up.

1. Stephanie needs a strong manly shoulder to lean on (comment: yes, and "manly" must be said in a deep, forthcoming voice when you read it. because that's SO me. (comment on comment: sarcasm intended))
2. Stephanie needs to post some of the "Excel Sonnets" (comment: WTF is an excel sonnet?)
3. Stephanie needs Rhinoplasty surgery (comment: I think my vocabulary is lacking here. WTF is Rhinoplasty? *busts out the dictionary* ooooh, I didn't think I was really Jewish. Sheesh.)
4. Stephanie needs cash fast - but times are tough, and soon she's forced to turn to the last resort of the truly desperate: family.
5. So first, Stephanie needs to find the secret location. (comment: Mission-Impossible style FTW!!!)


Greatness.
And for the record:
Accounting sucks. Exam Monday night. Ut oh.

Sbsteph85 (4:17:30 AM): well, that's a horrid life

I've ceased to predict life.
