this weekend


1. say hello to my "roommate" - a bonsai tree named mr. hannibal bonsai. for some reason it looked like a hannibal to me.
2. received two copies of a book in the mail, with my photo on the cover.
3. eggs and toast for breakfast.
4. only part of my shelf that looks nice lately (the rest of my shelf is messy with papers from school and things i don't know where else to put). cup hand made by me - hence the crookedness...


i also became desperate to remember all i've learned in biology before my exam, so i made the phylogenetic tree for the plant kingdom on my wall... now i'm working on one for the invertebrates.

and when i'm not studying or staring blankly into the air, i watch sci-fi movies. in case you didn't know, i love sci-fi. especially if it involves space and/or aliens. sounds silly but i just love the feeling of the unknown, and how the universe - so endlessly big - can feel so claustrophobic. how humans are small and helpless out there, and how, when you think about it, the universe isn't made for life. we're just really really lucky. and if there's something we know very little about, it's the universe and the future. so i watched 2001: a space odyssey the other day and i had to take screen-caps because it was so beautifully made.

  5. "and how, when you think about it, the universe isn't made for life. we're just really really lucky." -> this fascinates me, too.

  6. thats great i do too! and i know of so few people who do the same, it seems to me that people have a wrong impressing of sci fi, but what can a girl do. what's your favorite sci fi creations?
