We have plenty of snow here in the states, and I don't think it'll melt anytime soon. Good luck on your law exam, I'm sure you'll do well. I go back to school in a week and am not sure how I feel about it, I enjoy being in the city...and I get to see John and Hank on tuesday! I think that there's a lot of ways to celebrate New Year's, but the most important thing is if you're with friends. At least that's how I see it.
I mean I guess one benefit of it being two weeks of horrible-ness is that I can just focus on working over the holidays. Well that's good that you got tickets eventually! I remember when I was in England for the Harry Potter 7 part 2 movie premiere I didn't even try to get tickets for opening night, since they were pretty much all sold out. I know that my friends are getting up the morning of and waiting to get tickets. To be honest I haven't really checked out the Literature Crash Course but I do love when John talks about literature and it's awesome that he's just getting it so that people are talking books and stuff ^_^ I really love the history ones, too! I'm working on 4 projects at the moment: A Children's Literature Paper (20pgs), Immersion/Creative Writing (12pgs w/portfolio), an essay on Emile Zola & Poe (8pgs), and an Economics/Politics paper (8pgs). Needless to say I've got a lot of writing to do over the weekend...
Oh noes! Does that mean you'll be getting tickets? And I mean depending on how early he would have to go, that's understandable since I'm not a very good morning person myself. Still for the Hobbit I think I'd make an exception XD Studying during the holidays sounds not so fun :/ I'm trying to get through papers (since I don't have exams, just projects) right now without any holidays on and it's pretty terrible.
My goodness, that is certainly a long time to be in school! But I'm like 98% sure he's Kahn. On IMDB it's still cast as rumored, but like I don't know who else they'd put him as. And I KNOW! Aw man, it's going to be so good. Can't wait to see it in May ^_^ Yeah, I'm definitely glad I have Sci-Fi friends outside of my roomies. I have yet to buy tickets for the Hobbit, but we get it 2 days earlier than you on the 14th! XD
Well does that mean that you start the school year later? Cause if I had one semester from August to January I don't think I could handle that...and I think it's been somewhat confirmed that Cumberbatch is Kahn? Be sure to check out the new trailer! IT'S SO GOOD AHHH. My roommates just do not handle Sci-Fi/Nerdfighter things at all. It's kinda hilarious/mildly depressing.
That's okay, I'm now finding myself attempting to tackle the massive amounts of essay writing I have to do for the next few weeks; the semester is almost over! And yay Star Trek! Have you seen the new poster for Into Darkness? It's fantastic ^_^ My roommates don't get Sci-Fi, them trying to watch Star Trek was certainly an adventure.
Well a Nobel Prize is a pretty good indication of excellent writing, if I say so myself. Thankfully at my University I've managed to find a group of people that like nerdy things (Doctor Who, Firefly, etc.) But still, it doesn't mean that there aren't more people around!
Career choices can be tiresome, but I feel like I figured out what I want to do pretty early on in my college career. it's just after college that is the great unknown O.o I will certainly have to check out those poets/filmaker (if they have any english works available of course!) Yeah, networking is just tiresome. All the idle chatter. For me it's really like, if someone's super important I can get nervous and become really introverted...or wish I had someone to talk about nerdy things with, which usually corporate executives don't ahaha.
I actually debated getting a Master's in Art History or something for a while, but now I think it would be Literature if anything. Yeah, networking is really the big way to get a job. I am super excited to start working (honestly more than going to University) but at points I can be terrible at networking. So we will see where this goes. I think the only Scandinavian plays/writing I've read (in English) is "Doll House" by Henrik Ibsen. That's about it. The Met is a fantastic museum! The Philadelphia Museum of Art is also fantastic; second to the Louvre, of course...
I think I saw a map recently that compared Texas (one US state) to all of Europe, and it covered about 4 or 5 countries? I guess that didn't occur to me that not all of John's works would be translated into Swedish; though I guess if you could find yourself an English copy maybe? Working in NYC is one of my dreams too, so it's definitely surreal! It is somewhat related to my studies since it's working with book agents and contracts. Maybe a way to get into Publishing. I can't even imagine Swedish grammar...French can be tricky enough. And yes I realize that English isn't the most practical of majors but I am finding there are opportunities. Would you have studied like Art History, or creating Art? I absolutely love art museums, they're one of my favorite places to visit in cities.
Well I will say that I actually only first visited Chicago a couple of weeks ago! I was there for a journalism conference, it's a beautiful city. I absolutely love NYC and will be spending time during my winter holiday working (which is quite exciting) I haven't been down south much really. I've learned that the USA is massive compared to Europe. I just figured out that it would be quite cheap for me to travel to Sweden, the conversion rate is really odd. Be sure to get yourself to the library and read as many of John's novels if you can, they amazing! I mean, I'm a little biased because I'm studying English (Literature) in school...so I love to read. And your english is quite good, I can say the most in Swedish I know is Hej and Ja?
Where in the USA have you been? That's funny, I'd maybe like to study in Europe at some point, maybe for a Master's Degree? And yeah, the flight is the main portion of cost, really. Though I feel like the krona is doing better than the dollar, so it would be cheaper to buy things in the US. I've been to parts of the UK and definitely want to visit Amsterdam (have you read TFiOS?) maybe. The Balkans are absolutely beautiful and so is Sarajevo ^_^
Well I am, though I have no idea where I want to go. I have the option of visiting old places (London, Sarajevo, Paris) or exploring new cities...which there are too many of! Plus it's kinda expensive to travel around Europe :/ (at least for a US citizen)
