A wedding, an exam, a movie, a girl and HANSON! *grins*

So, here's Ari again..

Been looking around for ideas on what to wear to my sister's wedding..it's in under 3 months... on May 20th, to be exact.

This will be the first wedding I'll attend in my LIFE so I have no idea about how it will all be...

I wanna mix the colours RED and BLACK... other possible options are either WHITE with RED and/or BLACK, or PURPLE with RED and/or BLACK. But R&B (lol) is my primary choice. Anyhoo...

Was thinking I could wear a red dress, with black shoes, and a black little scarf I have from an old dress that I'd tie around my neck... OOOOR, the other way around (ie. black dress, red shoes and get a red scarf...)

Another option would be a plain black dress shirt, red tie...and either dress pants or skirt...not sure if that should be red or black.

GAH! So many options, dunno what to PICK!!

Anyway, aside from the wedding madness.

I passed an exam. Two out of three actually. Actually, I passed one, and the other I passed the written portion and have to wait for the prof to do the oral part. The third was a failure :(

Um, the system is a little different here.. you have 2 time-slots for each exam during each exam period (usually the 2 are about 2 weeks apart) and then there's always more time slots in each subsequent exam period, so it's not like you aren't given many chances to pass.

So, this first exam period I failed the one exam (I was the only 2nd year student taking it - the rest of the folks were 3rd year students still stuck w/ that exam). I may have another chance in April to take it again... and then in June/July... and then in September... and maybe in October too.

So, tons of exam periods!

Um. WWWhaaat else? OOOH! A movie theater opened here on Thursday!!! YAAAY! It looks so prettiful. There are 5 movies playing this week... went to see one last night.

It was Go West... which is a Bosnian movie. Really great! I'm usually not a big fan of movies from here, but this is one exception. It's AWESOME! Tis a story about two men in love, during the war that took place here in the 90s... at the beginning, I thought the author might take a dumb turn and make it into something STUPID, but to my surprise, I liked most of the things he did with the movie.

The other ones that are playing are the latest Harry Potter movie, that 3D Shark Boy/Lava Girl movie, Robots and Transporter 2, or whatever it is they're called. I have no desire to watch any of those, so Go West is all I'm seeing this week.

Things have been DRY in the love/romance/"action" department.

Been sort of just chatting online w/ this girl (also in Bosnia) who's in a situation I was sort of in a couple of years ago when my folks found out that I'm queer.

Apparently, moving her computer to the living room is going to help cure her. So now she basically can never go online to check her mail because there's someone home nearly all the time to see what she's doing. How horrible. She plans to lie and tell them she's "healed" so that she can get the computer back in her room.

Sounds a lot like moi. Agreed to come here and try to fit in and be "straight" only because I really saw it as a way out...away from their control (I imagine something like this girl's situation would have resulted in my house had I stayed). Of course, when questioned a year later, I didn't deny that I'm just as queer as ever.

*shrugs* I think they've grown more used to it now... but they still hope I'll "grow out of it". My mom sends me "subtle" messages to be smart (not just school-wise but in life too). Hmm... did I mention this already? Maybe not.

They seem to think I will be HAPPY if I "grow out of it" and decide to date boys. Yes, very happy. I'll just be DISGUSTED every time he tries to do anything more than hug me/cuddle with me and that's if we're super-close friends. I'll just feel like I'm lying to myself, to him, to everyone else around me, but who cares because I'll be HAPPY!

Anyhoo. Enough on that. Enough blabber. Ari must go sleep. Tis past 1am here now.

OH! One last note - MY MOMMY BOUGHT ME A CD!!!!!!! And not just any CD, folks!

The latest HANSON CD!!!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!! *giggles* I *heart* those boys! They make me smile. I feel like I've grown up with them. Nearly 9 years since I started listening to them!

SO, the CD is a live CD recorded in Australia last summer and it comes with a nifty bonus DVD!

There are a couple of covers on the CD - Radiohead's Optimistic, and U2's In A Little While. The rest are just various songs from various albums they've recorded in the past decade or so.

The DVD has some new music vids, live performances and a trailer for their new DOCUMENTARY!! That should be out on DVD sometime this year too! Actually, the CD my mom bought me came out in October last year...

Oh, and they're also working on a new STUDIO album!! That should be out later this year too, they claim (but I think that it will ACTUALLY be out next year).

I simply love HANSON!

Oh and also, I got a BUNCH (near 30 or so) of unreleased songs of theirs from when they were recording their LAST studio album...which BTW, took 4 years to release, because of record label issues...

This is what their Doc. deals with - the music biz, and the struggle artists have when dealing w/ labels like that... it's called "Strong Enought To Break" and they've been screening it at colleges around the U.S. the past few months and some schools have encorporated the film into their music/business courses!

Go to http://www.strongenoughtobreak.com or http://www.hanson.net for more info!

Okay, I promise, I'm shutting up now!

HANSON ROCKS!

Nite-nite.

Toodles!
