That Awkward Moment

The Awkward Moment
Hi fellows! Back on track with Stanie P. from Zimbabwe. We are still on our way following the trail that we just started. In case the morning coffee failed today, unnamedthere is something to cheer you up and brighten your day or perhaps the entirety of your stay at LCC International University. Want a smile on your face-check LCC Republic now!
I was made to believe that school days are the best. Some even say that if you are to ask the President of your country today what his/her best days in life were, they would point back to their school days. If I can look back at my high school years I am tempted to say that they are the best years yet if I could find a postern gate into yesterday then I would say university years are the best of all. What I have experienced so far explicitly explains that my time in Lithuania will be marked with joy and laughter. This is as plain as the nose on my face, university years are accompanied by joyous and momentous occasions, but on the other hand there are also some moments that you would never want to space. Among them are such moments that make me sad as they come to pass but if I would look over the whole scenario again a couple of weeks later I cannot help it but put a smile on my face and lighten my spirit as I anticipate more tragedies and tremendous moments in this life-a continuous journey into the unknown. Help me recall what kind of a face I would wear upon recalling…

That Awkward moment when you are dog-tired and you want to sleep but your Ndisiye ndirareroommates are so loud, they are playing their music so loud in languages that you do not understand, or they are so glamorous and want to share their experience for that day with you. You don’t want to disappoint them, yet you want to sleep in order that you can be wide awake in class the following day. “You then feel too old to cry and it hurts so much to laugh”-Abraham Lincoln.

That Awkward moment when you have early classes today but you retired to bed late last night. You are still feeling tired to an extent of feeling the tediousness of the previous day even in your sweet dreams. All of a sudden ‘WAKE UP-WAKE UP-WAKE UP IT’S A NEW DAY!!!” goes your alarm. rara hakoYou forget that your phone is so luxurious, you don’t even remember how much you bought it because it was so expensive. As you lie awake in your bed you are thinking if you should get up or snooze it for ten more minutes. You are still very tired to a depth of forgetting your name. The alarm refuses to let you have your peace, it continues to torture your ears. You knockout your alarm because of frustration. Now that you are fully awake you realize that you almost broke that expensive phone-it is even left with some marks on it because of your ruthlessness.

That Awkward moment when you wake up despite the alarm that tortured your ears you still fill happy and joyful. You prepare for the day and can’t wait to be in your first class of the day. Fit as a fiddle and ready to go, both textbooks and notebooks already in your backpack you head out for the door. As soon as you step outside you feel the unsympathetic Lithuanian weather that bangs against you and makes you realize that the world is never fair as it is said that anticipating the world to be fair is like hoping that when you encounter a lion it won’t eat you because you do not eat it. All the joy then melts away leaving traces of gloom. As you continue the struggle one step at a time towards Defehr you also remember that your first class is the one you like the least. The weather always has unpredicted ideas, your happiness is gone-that awkward moment,
That akward moment when you are late for classes and you are running just so that you may not be completely absent as it is said that rather be late than absent. As you track towards your class room, you meet one of your favorite professors on his/her way to the residence halls or to Michealsen Centras. They also cherish your presence, they seem to be blind of the fact that you were running-it means you are late. They want to exchange words with you for a minute. To make the matter worse you do not even have the confidence to point out that your are late and you would definitely see them later during the day – that awkward moment,

That awkward moment when you are preparing for a quiz but you did not take notes in class because you thought that the material that the professor covered was just trivial. You now realize your folly because the professor said that the quiz will have either positive or negative effects on your final exam grades. As this thought tumbles in your mind you eventually realized that the lecturer said you can study the third presentation uploaded for that class on Moodle. You only have three hours before this quiz gets underway so you decided to spend these few hours thriftily by preparing for this quiz. Time flies when you are having fun. You are so excited that you will make the grade with flying colors because you feel prepared for the quiz. Time comes, here you are sitting with your fellow classmates-full of anticipation of what this quiz would consist of. The professor gives commands, “Make sure that no one is sitting on the next row in front or behind you neither should there be anyone on the next chair to your left or right(in Neufeld).” He goes on to mention that his classes are hard in training but easy in battle. He says that he hopes that the presentation he uploaded was helpful. He goes on to give the title of the presentation, but to your bewilderment the title is unfamiliar to you. You start to wonder if he said the wrong one or you studied the wrong one. You start to write the quiz and definitely realize that you scrutinized the fourth presentation instead of the third one – that awkward moment,

That awkward moment when you do not quite hold up with a classmate because he/she is so picky. This classmate of yours seems to also criticize your perspective every time you have group assignments. It’s not that you are always incorrect but that they always find funny when you say something. You show up in class only to find out that the professor had a group assignment scheduled for that day. You are still there warming your chair because the Lithuanian weather is not always cordial. As the professor explain this assignments you are thinking if she will put you two in one group. You cheer up yourself saying that it will not always be the case that she will put both of you in the same group. As she calls out the students that would comprise a group you find out that you have been put in a different group with this your classmate. Each group comprises of seven students. You are so happy to share all your ideas because you are feeling more comfortable today. You are even happy. As you start saying something, the teacher points to your group and says that it has six students instead of seven so she politely asks your least favorite classmate to kindly join your group and she agrees – that awkward moment,

That Awkward moment when you like a certain dish so you make it like three Makaronaitimes a week but you fellow floor mates end up making fun of you due to the fact that you are always having the same dish. They even say that it is the only meal you ever prepare – that awkward moment,

That awkward moment when your roommate goes home for the weekend and you are too lazy to go to the market. Maybe you are too lazy to go to the market because you know that there is extra food! You decide to eat this food hoping that you would replace everything you devour before your roommate returns. Your roommate returns sooner than expected and he is not okay with this your idea of asking yourself for his food and giving yourself permission to his food – that awkward moment,

That Awkward moment when you share with your friends a joke that is common in your home country. After saying all you intended to say none of your friend laughs. Finally you find out that it is not because your joke is not hilarious but rather offensive in their culture – that awkward moment,

That Awkward moment when you have an assignment to print out. You are so busy that you decide to print the paper on the same day that you are to produce a hard copy of your assignment in class. You pop up in the library twenty minutes before your class but the computers are so slow that after printing your paper you realize that you are seven minute late for your class. To make matters worse, you have been later for that same class four consecutive times now – that awkward moment,

That Awkward moment when you are not so sure of word pronunciations but would still like to use some words in a conversation. Good, you have an impromptu speech today – the opportunity you have long been waiting for. As a result of your uncertainty you use the word “vulnerable” instead of “venerable”, you use “imminent” instead of “eminent”, and “impotent” instead of “important.” There is a big grin on your face – satisfied with your accomplish only time see it append on your grades that you really have to work on your vocabulary – that awkward moment,

That Awkward moment when you are not feeling pretty well so you write to your professor and give a reason for missing class that day. You therefore spend the whole day sleep and relaxing.As dusk approaches, you decide to go outside for the first time. You decide walking to grab a few items at the shop and there you meet your professor. He is not close enough that you can talk to him but he just intently looks at you, waves, and walks away – that awkward moment,

That Awkward moment when you are learning some new vocabulary in Lithuanian. The words are so tricky that you end up composing a chorus with the words just so you may master them. All day long you are humming this chorus and your friends or roommates who notices that asks what song is that and you can’t explain –that awkward moment,
That Awkward moment when you walk from class after receiving your grade on a recent quiz and you are so blissful. You are teeming with joy. You see your friend about 20 yards ahead of you and you call them out aloud to tell them of your success. He/she doesn’t answer and you think maybe they just did not hear you so you call even louder. To your shock, you find out that it’s someone else who did not answer simply because it was not their name that you called – that awkward moment,

That Awkward moment when one of your good friends invites to join him/her for dinner. The table is set and the prayer has already been said. Your friend is sitting at the side of the table opposite to you. You are so shy but you start a new topic just so you may be less shy. Your friend and his/her friends unconsciously continues your topic in their common language (for instance you speak only English and they are now using Ukrainian). You see that they are saying something interesting because they are all giggling but you don’t anything – that awkward moment,
That Awkward moment when one is too tired to do his/her homework so he/she goes ahead to take a siesta, but he or she cannot sleep because the mind is busy trying to figure out when he/she would do that homework. So you lie awake the whole two hours – that awkward moment,
That Awkward Moment when you quote the Bible in trying to help a friend solve his problem. He points out that you have quoted the Bible incorrectly and he convinces you to believe that you are wrong for sure and you feel like you are the one left in the predicament – that awkward moment,
That Awkward Moment when a friend borrows 15 litas to buy cigarettes and after smoking they bring back 5 litas saying that’s all the money you lent them – that awkward moment,
That Awkward Moment when a friend comes to you with lips dry and you assume Smoking hutthey are hungry. They want to borrow money and give it back the next day. You give them the money and ask, “So what are you going to buy?” and they reply in a voice soft and low, “cigarettes.” – That awkward moment,
That awkward moment when you go to bed very late know that you don’t have early classes the next day. As a result of the four other roommates that you have, you cannot sleep adequately because one of them has a lecture at 8:30, another has a lecture 9: 45 and the last two have their first lectures of the day at 11:00 and your lectures begin at 1:15. None of them woke up as soon as their alarms were going. They snoozed their alarms at least twice – that awkward moment,
That Awkward Moment when you do the best that you possibly can in cleaning the kitchen because you have kitchen duty only to wake up the following morning and hear the R. A affirming that you have ONLY two days more for not taking the trash out – that awkward moment,2014-12-02 15.21.07
That Awkward moment when you get used to going to your friend’s room. You and your friends are in each other’s good graces that you don’t knock on each other’s door because you are good friends and you are both of the same sex.That awkward moment when you call your friend and enter his room only to hear him answer from the next room. You just entered a wrong room and the residents of that (wrong) room stare in utter shock –that awkward moment,

That Awkward Moment when the receptionists say they don’t have any token for the washing machine. They tell you to go and ask at the other residence hall and there you get only one because that is all they have. You come back and put your clothes into the appliance, put the coin as well and it’s gone for good. Nothing happens and you can’t retrieve it – that awkward moment,

That awkward moment when you don’t have time to iron your clothes so you stretch them nicely on the dryer in the laundry room and go for your classes.Hembe You come to pick your clothes up at the end of the day and you find them all dry and stacked on one corner (in a way that they now need ironing) because someone needed to use the same drier to dry his clothes since yours were dry –that awkward moment
MbachaThat Awkward Moment when you buy the token and trust the washing machine to do your laundry as you take care of something else only to find out that the job had not been done perfectly because you were in a hurry and did not pay close attention to what kind of clothes you gave it to wash for you – that awkward moment,
That Awkward Moment when you do not feel like eating anything in the morning so you just go ahead and go to class. After sitting in the classroom for twenty minutes, your stomach decides to ask you in public why you deprived it of food. It growls so loud and everyone looks at you – that awkward moment,

That Awkward moment when you sleep in class and finally you wake up because everyone is laughing at what you said while you were sleeping (you soliloquized). You ask a friend sitting next to you what exactly you said and he/she says that nobody understood what you said, all they know is that you said something out loud – that awkward moment,
That Awkward moment when you don’t want anyone to know you grades but your friend asked what you grade was. You just tell him simply because he is your friend. An hour later he when you meet at the Cafeteria in Michealsen Centras he just shout to you and says, “I grade was 4 because you did not understand the Fibonacci sequence, I will help you with that.” Good he is willing to help, but now everyone else is now aware of your grade – that awkward moment,

That Awkward Moment is not as awkward as when the guy who first discovered milk tries to explain what he was doing with/to the cow,2014-11-29 20.46.55
Yes, that AWKWARD MOMENT WHEN you are so happy that you ask your roommate to lower down his/her volume because you want to read a text message on What’s App. Woot!

Hello guys.

Open Doors Day4a


2014-10-29 10.15.49

Maksym

It was great. I was welcoming our guests – 12th graders from Klaipėda, other Lithuanian towns, and Liepāja, Latvia. My simple duty was to say “Good Morning”, guide to cloakroom where my pal, Maksym from Zaporizhia, Ukraine, was working; and send to first (Albanian) registration table, and after, to second (Ukrainian-Moldovan). Some time later, our prospective students attended some brainwashing lecture from our admissions man Emas. Then, they went to the classes they registered for. Even though I did not attend those lectures, it was easy to see that folks really liked their very first time at LCC.

Yet next thing was the lunch which I went to, and it was awesome. (Actually, food is awesome.) It is.

Chatting with guys was also good – I think it was the best way for them to understand what is LCC, since we are fresh and unbiased students, so we can tell all the truth about the university life.

After the event, I did not want to clean up and move the tables in the hall where we were eating, so I escaped from there and joined Ukrainian girls who were making a campus tour for the school-leavers. Again, it could not be that good without us, since only we could tell all the fun facts in informal way about each of the places. I showed how we live in our room, I shared my own impressions and fresh experiences.

Then, coffee break and little portion of brainwashing from Emas, and senior from Zaporizhia – Oleksiy. Blah blah blah, all that stuff.


Quotes for successful entrepreneurs


 In fact, my classes are great. Love Business Department professors:

It’s not a big ass, it’s an integral.

Dmytro Baklaiev, Math professor; explaining antiderivatives.

– You know, ehhh, I ran out of milk. I need some more.

– Ok, let’s go to the cow.

Arturo Soto Gonzalez, Business professor; explaining the concept of supply using the fictional entrepreneur character, močiutė.


Moose


We have a basketball team, Moose. They play so hard. They are insane, kicking off the rival with 60 points difference. Football games are also epic. Fans are going crazy.

Do not complain, work, sleep, eat. Do it.

Wish you peace and love,

Campus Fashion (AKA I got you, Nik)

I have not written10585211_694608280606703_1071731504_n a post about style/fashion for a while, but my fellow blogger Nik got me into this trouble. Along with that, it is winter already. At least the snow outside makes me feel like it. The other day my friend grabbed my phone and started scrolling Facebook, but soon he got bored because apparently “every second post was something somehow connected to fashion”. I found that amusing.  

Anyways, let’s talk about College fashion. First of all, yes, there is some fashion in College and second, no, I do not mean Yoga pants and North Face sweatshirts (Girls, please stop wearing them). But there is a way you can pimp up your “I just got our of bed” look without looking like you actually got out of bed 5 minutes ago. If you feel like wearing something comfortable, put on leggings and tennis shoes, finish up your look with a baggy sweater and a cool backpack. See? easy. large (2)

If you are anything like me and try to look nice even when going to the war, you might think that college is a fashion disaster, but it’s not. I mean yes, you can not put a 5 pound textbook in a cute clutch you got at Zara, but you can get a bagpack! (Plus, bagpacks are a trend of the season). Yes, I
got to leave all my cute bags in Tbilisi, it’s all cool. Who the heck carries clutches to class anyways?! (Well, I still got to bring my space hooker silver bag here, which is good. The name comes Jenna Marbles’s silver hair, not from my life decisions you guys).

As for the shoes, as I said, tennis shoes are your new friends and maybe army boots too. (I am guilty for purchasing a pair of army boots and wearing them since then and ever after). If you want to wear something heel-y, there are heavy armor boots, which look quite awesome, but provide support on thick heels. And no matter how cold it is, please no UGGs. I know it is super cold already, but just no.large (1)

Now I am getting to “What not to wear to lecture” part. There is a scale from looking ridiculously bad to looking ridiculously good. Try to stay somewhere middle, stay casual. I don’t want to see you looking like crap at 8:30am lecture, but I would also think you are crazy if you come in class with high heel pumps and a Birkin bag, in that sexy little black dress.

Okay now I will get back to my work. I have one hour left till my assignment is due and I am just sitting here appreciating my neighbor’s awesome garden…

P.S. This is just a joke guys. Don’t think that I’m an arrogant a..rt-hole. And one more thing: if you study in my University and see me wearing sweatpants and shirt after classes, don’t judge me, I am a human also.

Votre,

Veronica.

Atostogos

Hello guys. I am Ivan from Bila Tserkva, Ukraine. I’m 17.4a

Now I am a freshman who lives in Klaipėda and this is the blog about it. Here we go.


Friday


I was done with my midterms. Fall break was almost here. Most of folks went home but I stayed here, on campus. Why? Well, for me it’s expensive to reach my home city, Bila Tserkva – about 80 EUR. And the roundtrip there lasts 1.5 days out of overall nine days of break I had. I decided to stay on campus this time and travel to home on winter break which lasts three weeks.  So, my lovely roommates cleaned up our crib (which looked quite good even before cleaning). It was a time for farewell, German guy Lukas said: “You can use a whole room”, Tadas just said “Davaj” before leaving; Jake told that he goes to Russia together with other study abroad students from United States (here at LCC we have plenty of those); finally, cool dude Jokūbas suggested me to make a party with mergos in the room. Wise words though.


The Break Itself


Finally, the room became empty. This is so exciting – I have plenty of time to relax from everything I have experienced during those insane two months. Since I’m an introvert, silence and emptiness made such a good mood for me.

Most of the time I was sleeping. I was also cooking masterpiece meals, walking, and just enjoying my life. I was listening to music on my loud headphones.

Fun

Moreover, I attended some really cool events at Neumann dorm.

On Saturday, the very first day, I once walkedthrough empty windy streets of Klaipėda. Suddenly, one Ukrainian girl Alisiia from W202 pm’d me asking: “Are you free today at 8:30?”. “Sure”, I said. She answered: “Cool, we gonna play Mafia at lobby. Do you know anybody to invite?

10735189_588156181312101_257099214_n

…and Alisiia’s sneakers!

Until 8:30 we managed to tear out to our event about 10 people. I really enjoyed awesome tea with cookies and sweets, the game was exciting as well! Our little Ukrainian community together with two girls who come from Moldova and Kyrgyzstan had really great fun, lots of laughs, and delicious coffee with cream supplied by Alisiia.

On Monday here was a movie night, I watched first ten minutes and went sleep to my room.

Tuesday

Yet another day I slept enough. At 16:00 there was a game night at our Community Life Director Alisha’s apartment in town but I didn’t want to go there that much.

This is how we cook

This is how we cook

At 15:45 I was cooking my next beautiful meal when my Albanian pal Elvisi came to the kitchen noticing awesome smell he felt. He told that there is a meeting regarding volunteering on Open Doors Day at 16:00 at the first floor. I thought “Yes, I should go there!” At the meeting we divided our duties, and I was expected to meet and guide our guests (prospective students from Lithuania and Latvia) next day.

I will tell more about this in my next most, so let me move on.

On Wednesday we played live Mafia and it was good but there were too many people (40!)

Next day at about 21:00 cool Latvian RA Jānis came to my room to bring cards for one more Live Mafia. He also noticed my Dynamo Kyiv fan scarf, and remembered Latvian ex-player of this team, Māris Verpakovskis. Such a pleasure.

The game with only twelve people was much better, walking with friends through empty dorm with this horrifying music expecting not to be ‘killed’ was great fun.

Friday: Halloween; horror movie night. Delicious pop-corn, great film as well – I loved it!

2014-10-31 16.33.38

Counter Strike is back as well

Sunday

Ukrainian friends Yurii and Maksym decided to play last time this break. Seven people were here. The game is simple: you write a word on sticky paper and put it on the forehead of somebody, someone does the same, and everybody is trying to guess what is written on their own paper. Chilling.

Finally, my roommates are back. Love them.

Time Management

 It is not an ordinary race when I come after my time-when I run the race to catch up with time, to submit my assignments, do my homework, and still find adequate time to hit the hay. As a freshmen, time management has proven to be quite a BIG DEAL! 

Like a ship struggling through fog I fought to open my eyes one cold and dreary unnamedmorning. My alarm turned out to be a foe this day. I was frustrated so I hit him pretty hard and left him almost knocking at death’s door. I was feeling tired before I even started the day. This happened frequently for what seemed to be three weeks or so. All this fatigue originated from the four letter-word “T-I-M-E.” I have found the adage that says time is money to be veritable. If today is Thursday 23 November 2014, that is the only Thursday 23 November 2014 that has and will ever exist. There will never exist another day like this. There will never be a Thursday 23 October 2014 again in all the centuries that lie ahead. There may be a Thursday 23 October 2015, 2016, 2017…, but never 2014 again. Therefore how we spend time is important.

Sometimes I feel so tired as if I had been working so hard all day, but it is rather shocking to come to think of it that I had just three classes in that particular day. I often complain that I just have a lot of work to do and that I am ever busy. I finish all my classes at 2:15 p.m. and I have the rest of the afternoon at loose ends. But what makes me feel tired, what keeps me busy? Certainly it is not that I have so much to do or that I am working really hard each and every day, but that it is time spent in vain. I am not very organized, that is the answer I gave myself. I am honest with myself. I am somehow a busybody. I seem to be busy all the time yet I do not benefit much from my busyness because my daily achievements sometimes do not match with the pain that I feel even in my sweet dreams. This was a battle that needed me to fight so hard in order to keep on floating above the studies. If I give up then it becomes obvious that I will drown and lose track of my time and fail to catch up with my lectures and homework. I was more focused on my studies to an extent of having no time for even the social life that comes together with college life. After my first class I felt like I had been in another class before my first class. In all this I ended up depriving myself adequate sleep. In my first three weeks I thought college was not a conducive milieu for normal living. I thought my four years at LCC will be like some sort of custody. During this struggle to keep up with time, I learned that there was a class that exists just to make sure that students do not regret coming to university. Looking at all the departments at LCC I came to a realization that staff members know that feeling fatigued easily especially in the first year is a common possibility so they fashioned a class and a department to take care of just that. Yay! I am so glad that we have such a class as First Year Seminar and the Students Success Center department. First year seminar and the Students Success Center gave me some hints to the right trail that I might consider following. This included how I study, how I take notes, how and when I revise my notes, who I hang out with, and most of all, how I spend my time. During my first three weeks, I wasted a lot of time thinking that I was actually wisely spending my time. One tip from the Students Success Center that I will never forget is to know beforehand how much free time I have and how I would spend that time. In other words this means as a freshmen it is critically important that I do not do things spontaneously but rather that I have every day of the week in some sort of schedule. Goal CardThis is a really effective way of reducing time wasters and helps cultivate a culture of productivity. If any is in doubt of this this way of spending time, he or she should try this for a minimum time of a week and circumspectly note the similarities and differences in the achievements and how much tired one feels at the end of each day. “Time is money.” This is a trustworthy statement that deserves full acceptance. How we spend our time brings either fatigue or joy at the end of each day. It was not until I visited the Student’s Success Center that I was put wise on how to spend time wisely. Of course I wasn’t taught how to spend every minute, but at least I was given some advice on what is most important and what is trivial and it was all for me to arrange my daily routines. I calculated all the free hours that I have each day and noted that I had a big deal of free time.amagoalcard How I was using that free time is still not clear but for certain I know it was time being wasted because no profit sprouted from all those drifting hours. Since then, I became conscious that it matters how I use my time. It is vitally important for me to understand how I spend my time. I cannot determine what got me tired if I do not know what has been swallowing my time. In advising one who is still struggling with time management I would say: “It also helps to have a goal card that contains all your classes and daily activities. All you need is to follow-it-through.
Time flies when we are having fun, so do not put for later what you can do now. Procrastination is the thief of time. Before you even realize it will be the end of the day and you still need to sleep. Do not count each day but rather make each day count by how you spend each hour. Time is money and should therefore be spent with due regard.”

Life Hacks For LCC Students

Well hello there sweethearts of the new LCC B1a1log with me, Ocean.

Let this blog be our secret comfy one-on-one talk. So let me introduce myself. My name is Aušrine. Why Ocean? Because somehow the name „Aušrine“sounds similar to “Ocean” for those whose mother tongue is not Lithuanian. Or, because all of the pickup lines „Hey, your eyes are so blue, like the ocean“or „I could drown in those deep blue eyes“. Uf. I wish they’ll come up with something new soon…..

I started LCC with all of you guys this year at the end of August. I am a freshman, though I have been working and visiting LCC for quite some time now, so let me be your little guide.

Here are my experiences and some juicy tips on how to survive all of these weird species roaming around our Campus. Beware, my little readers. Sometimes it might get tricky.


Species #1: The Playfull Americans


DSCF7559

& Trenton Garrison

What do they attract you with: Handsome looks,a smell of freedom, a tan right from California, Surfing abilities, McDonalds 24/7.

Why to be avoided: They playfully tease you on how tiny you are. Doesn’t matter how tall you are, because they are at least 10M high. And they always have snacks on them that they act like they’ll share. Guess what. THEY WON’T. (Just kidding….. or am I? 😀 )

Why you should be friends with them: Easy entries to clubs. Free McDonalds. Amazing to use against your roommate – while she is drooling over a charmer, you can browse through her stuff and take whatever you needed.
Getting things from the top shelf is not a problem anymore.
All of your essays will be fixed.


Species #2: Always Hungry Ukrainians

DSCF7599

Anastasia Malyk


What do they attract you with: Constant food and tea, adorableness, sick-treatments and acting like they know your language.

Why to be avoided: Small but vicious creatures. If made angry – will chase you down the ends of the earth.

Why you should be friends with them: If treated properly they are the most adorable creatures. Will always feed you borsch or Salo. Hugs and cuddles guaranteed.


Species #3: Passionate Albanian-Greek’s


& Elvis Matthers

& Elvis Matthers

What do they attract you with: Strong perfume, Confident strut, Raki, Hugs.

Why to be avoided: Extremely friendly. If having a bad day do not go near them or you will be hugged for an eternity. Also, if you need their assistance in the morning, will not correspond with you until they drink their coffee in a period of 1 hour.

Why you should be friends with them: Will always make you dance with them. Day or night. They’ll barge in; make you smile and dance with them with the weirdes music ever. Like Lady Gaga. No kidding.


So here you are, Sweethearts. A few tips on surviving in the jungle of LCC campus. Beware. Or, on the contrary, find yourself somebody valuable for a scheme or a cold winters evening.

Bisous,

Dame  de la  mer
