Kiev!

Dude! My lj layout is cityscape Kiev!! I was born in that town! I lived in an apartment on the Maidan (the main square there) for the first 6 years of my life! Whenever there was a big political thing in Kiev, it would always be on the Maidan and i could show people my building! And now its on my layout! SUCCESS!

Julila's Lovely Christmas

Well... it was really good and really bad at the same time.
The presents sucked. Or rather.. there were barely any because my birthday is like a week before and people can't be bothered to give someone christmas presents if they already got them a b-day present. Whatever. The ones that I did get were pretty damn cool.
Lauren: handmade nose warmer. ♥
Mommy: Pretty earrings and a Reebok bag thingy that i was planning to get myself. ♥
Tonya: Headbands, stationary stuffs, hairbrush ♥
Nicola: Latest issue of Whatever the Fuck You Want, cute and soft teddy bear, truffles, and sex coupons that I may be issuing to some people. Because upon reading them, certain people came to mind. ♥♥♥


So I tried snowboarding on Sunday. The instructor's name was Tristan and I think he was like australian because of his awesome accent. Anyways... I was doing really well until a strong gust of wind knocked me over and i landed badly on my wrist. I had to ski the rest of the trip. I saw Ilya, though. (some of you may remember him from my freshman semi) We had to bend over backwards to get permission from the families so we could ski/board together today... and the weather decided to be fucky and make my family not want to drive up there. poop. Maybe i'll bring him to anna's new year's party though. that should be fun. Tristan and I ended up hanging out durinig his break the next day. He laughs really funny. Can't really describe it, but it made me giggle.

I had anna and nicola over so we could take advantage of ping-pong, the pool, hot tub and arcade. Twas fun.

SUCH BORING RUSSIAN PEOPLE THOUGH! After the first two nights of hanging out with them, I ended up preferring staying in and reading/watching tv to seeing them again. Wtf, man? Wtf?

I got new skis too. And boots. And bindings. All for $150. I suspect that this was to make me not beg the parents for a snowboard. Ah well. I'll just have to save up for one.

Not a really bad trip. Got some alcohol. I wanna go to lido on the 28th. Anyone free? Contact me if you are.
I believe in goofiness and good times. Sometimes, taking a vacation from being serious is relaxing. This could be a figurative vacation or a literal one. A silly comment, or a funny action can really lighten the mood during a stressful day.

A very famous playwright, William Shakespeare, had a very solid grasp of the concept of comic relief. Even in famous tragedies such as Romeo and Juliet, he included the Nurse to make things seem brighter with her anecdotes and attitude. Just as in Shakespeare’s plays, people very much like this Nurse can be found in real life.

Being goofy doesn’t necessarily require cheering up people that you are good friends with. It could be a form of personal amusement, even. On a trip of mine to Mexico, upon meeting people that I didn’t think I would want to see again, I would use a false name and a fake Russian accent. Though the nature of these little white lies never made it to the surface, they created a sort of fun game to amuse me whenever boredom would strike me with the added bonus of providing great story material for when I returned back to Danvers.

So where can one act hilariously insane? Generally, places where goofiness is much needed are those where the culprit feels comfortable, and everyone else constantly feels stressed. French class is where I strike. Anyone that is in French with me can look across the classroom at any time and find my friends and me attempting to silence our giggles about one of our latest comments. In this kind of environment, virtually any phrase can be twisted into one that induces fits of laughter. Creating atmospheres like this one can provide small escapes from classes full of serious people and wishes of being somewhere else.

Sure, acting silly can earn scorn from those that are too serious from their own good. Yes, being goofy can distract the people around a person, but acting insane can also provide that little nudge that helps people lighten up during the day. Whether you like it or not, goofiness can (and will) distract you from your problems for at least a little bit, even if in the form of simply being annoying. Good times are created when a friend makes a seemingly (or actually) dumb comment. It’s these good times that are what we look back on later.

woohoo!!!

yay! birthday time!
