I still can't believe this place. I still don't understand how this - any of this - is real. I'm still grappling with the fact that with one plane trip - literally, from August 28th to August 29th - life can change so drastically. Groningen is amazing. The people I live with are amazing. Everything is amazing and I am constantly in awe (and I know, I know, give it a few weeks and see what I'm saying then, but right now I'm living in this crazy happy bubble and everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.)

In the two weeks since I've been in Groningen, I've met people from all over the world. I'm making plans to visit places I've only ever known as names on a map - if that. One of my friends, Hanna, is from Finland, and has graciously mentioned invites to her home near Christmas time. Apparently they can hunt moose there by the light of the Northern lights! There are jokes going around about Oktoberfest in Munich, which I am so, so down for. It's crazy.

And that's probably the most extravagant experience for me: I am surrounded by people - and it's awesome. Over the last two weeks, I've been talking to people, connecting with them, initiating and carrying on conversations - and it's been fun! I never knew just being with people could be this enjoyable; is this what normal people feel like all the time? Even though school is already in full swing (I read three chapters of my Industrial-Organizational Psychology textbook this weekend and I have an oral presentation due on Thursday), I'm able to sit with people and just chill, relax, without stressing about projects or deadlines. I'm actively seeking social contact, which is so novel for me that I'm having a hard time believing it myself. This is so different from anything I'm used to; I smile at people in the mornings, say hi to them, even just sit quietly as they talk around me, all of us just doing our own thing - it feels like acceptance, community, and it's such a completely addictive feeling. How have I never experienced this before? It's so liberating, and I never imagined it could be like this.

P.S.: DUTCH MY LIFE
HAHA!

QDC JUST DANCE 2011 = MY LIFE ♥

I can't believe dance is over! There is a gigantic gaping void in my life now, where dance class used to be, and I can't believe that it's all gone by so fast.

Recital was a huge success! :D I haven't gotten much audience feedback (parents don't count; I think they were more preoccupied with my haircut), but on Saturday, the crowds were amazing, and being on stage felt amazing, and the other dancers were amazing, and it was all ~so beautiful~ ;asldkfjals;d I AM WHELMED BY THE AWESOME!

alors on danse~ )
I wish we could all just dance forever. ♥________♥

*I keep wanting to make self-deprecating jokes about people seeing me in my underwear, and then I remember that for Videodance, my costume was underwear, so it's a bit late to be worrying about modesty, I guess.

~*~FANSPLOSION IN MY PANTS~*~
Feels like it's been a while since my last post. (Yeah, it's a problem when my idea of "internet deprivation AUGH THE PAINNNNNN" is a grand total of ...3 days.)

Friday night started at four thirty with a fencing dinner. The upper year fencers are awesome and will talk extensively about anything from WOW to IMAP/POP servers to Alan Moore's intrinsic awesome. Uber excited to get to know them better. (Unfortunately, theytend to be a bit cliquey, so my fencing buddy and I have decided that when we are upper year fencers, we will welcome all newbies with open arms and inclusive topics of conversation.) There's this mysterious thing called the "Flunge" taking place next weekend, which I am so confused about but really excited for. My spidey-senses eavesdropping tells me it's something to do with "rookies" and "yeah, I jumped in the lake [Ontario], shit". So I really hope some other newbies are attending, cause there's no way in hell I'm going to that alone. Fencing ended at 11, btw and then as soon as I got back to my room, my floormates were all "why are you not over here omg!" so I chilled with them for a bit. And then sleep. Finally.

Um, anyway, because this is all tl;dr, the astonishingly wondrous [personal profile] music_est_vita is reccing me SPN fics and ;ASLDFJKLIEAR;ASDNF;ALKSJF FANDOM OH MY GOD, Y SO TALENTED?!

TOP PICKS:

1. GUYS. GUYS. GET YOUR FREAK ON, BECAUSE [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge JUST WROTE SPN FIC. Ok, by "just", I mean last month BUT WHAT THE HECK WHERE WAS I FOR THIS. ;ALSDKFJAISDFAS;LDFJKA;LWEJRA SHIT SON, THIS IS TOO GQ TO HANDLE. CASTIEL'S CHARACTERIZATION IS WONDERFUL AND HEARTBREAKINGLY ENDEARING, AND I CAN'T EVEN EXPRESS HOW MUCH THIS FIC MADE MY DAY, SO YOU SHOULD CHECK IT OUT 35 minutes ago NOW.

2. SO WE ALL KNOW THAT BOBBY IS SYNONYMOUS WITH AWESOME, Y? This is a look at Dean and Castiel's relationship through his eyes and it's incredibly well-done, being understated but really poignant at the same time. (Written by [livejournal.com profile] moonlettuce )

Finally: DEAN/CASTIEL THEMATIC REC LIST. Does what it says on the tin. Makes me jizz in my pants like a boss on a boat. (motherfucker!)
