My name is Rachel. I like Harry Potter, latin, glitter, history, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fleet Foxes, The Pixies, First Aid Kit, City and Color, Bronze Radio Returns, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Dexter, Artemis Fowl, Jeopardy, Slytherin, Disney, Pokemon, Merlin, Sherlock, Sailboats, Wolves, and the Ocean. Oh, and I probably don't like you.

 

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (via observando)

What happens when two baroque cellists perform a cover of “Thunderstruck" by AC/DC? They shred. Literally. Keep an eye on their bows as the piece progresses.

This awesome video features Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, aka 2Cellos, playing their phenomenal “BaRock style” arrangement of the hard rock classic for a completely bewildered 17th century audience. The concept is wonderful, but the actual performance is astonishing.

Very exhausted and borderline sickly from both last-week-of-semester nonsense and remnants of fun from my “work hard, play hard” mentality.
Spent most of the day yesterday at Worlds of Fun getting in touch with the things that make Missouri livable.
Today the manuscript I’ve been coauthoring got sent off to the journal editor, so fingers crossed that goes through smoothly and also hallelujah that that’s the last I have to see of that body of work for at least another month.
Took a heinous and nearly nonsensical Statistics final, drank down a pitcher of margarita, found out I got a perfect 100 (THANKS, UNIVERSE) and sadly did not have any more margarita to celebrate with.
Binge watched television and gave myself a much needed mani-pedi. It’s finally flip flop weather in KC and my feet are ready.
While at the restaurant today the manager (?) came up to me and my friends and asked if we wanted free t-shirts and that we looked like “V-neck girls.” This happened seven hours ago and I am only now realizing how strange and bizarre that was (I was pretty drunk at the time, oops) but I’m gonna wear the shirt anyway. I’m wearing it right now.
"Young Folks" by Peter Bjorn and John is exactly what the end of this day needed. Thanks, Pandora.
