Now that my iPod earphones have broken, I get to sit on the bus every morning with my giant cheap looking Property of British Airways (incraft entertainment aircraft use only) earphones... which I have to admit to liking, not only for their ear-muff qualities. I've been listening to, in no particular order:

  • Jason Burnstick - I just love this guy
  • Beach House - I rediscovered them on my iPod on one of the rare occasions it was on shuffle (ask me about listening to the entire record if you're wondering). My favorite songs of theirs are (again, in no particular order):
    • Wedding Bell
    • Saltwater
    • You Came to Me
    • Turtle Island
    • Holy Dances

Does anyone still use listography? Haven't been on here in ages but after getting the email today I was reminded that it exists. A girl can never have enough lists!

Since I don't leave myself enough time to read during the school year, I'm dreaming about all the books I can read once exams are finished.

to read:

  • Milan Kundera, "The Joke"
  • Vladimir Nabokov, "The Eye"
  • Fyodor Dostoyevsky, "The Brothers Karamazov"
  • Leo Tolstoy, "The Cossacks"
  • Johann Goethe, "Faust"
  • Christopher Marlowe, "Doctor Faustus"
  • William Shakespeare, "Hamlet"

to reread or finish:

  • Ovid, "Metamorphoses"
