Now that I quit slams I want to try and update here more often, and be more active on LJ in general, so I will get a chance to keep in touch with all my friends from the slamworld :)So...what can I tell you? Let's try to sum up my last months...

Hey there girls!
this is an official announcement...and it feels so weird...I think I am going to give up on slams for good. I have a part-time job at the moment and this new hobby (knitting) and a big pile of slams to sign that is growing and growing...and in 2 weeks my contract will end so I will look for a new job, full-time this time ;) so I am afraid that less free-time will mean even less time for my hobbies...and since knitting makes me feel better than slamming I decided to give up on the latter. I know it is weird, but it is what I feel at the moment. 
I will send swaps to the people I owe one, and then I will write here again to offer all the extras. And of course I want to keep in touch here and hope you will let me stay in your friend list anyway :) and who knows, maybe I'll come back one day!

PS I will keep on swapping slams in Italian, but in smaller amounts

Current Mood: sleepysleepy


Here I am with all the full slams I got back over the years! They are taking too much room and my mom keeps complaining so I am gonna keep only the fatslams and some ooooold ones (from 1993-4, when I started swapping heavy!)

Aug. 3rd, 2007 @ 12:47 am slam break

it's my turn to go on a slam-break :(
My thesis is taking up most of my time and I have a pile of slams that I feel it's not fair to keep here.
So if you are my swappers and owe me a swap, please do not send me anything till you'll read that I graduated (that should happen in December). I am all caught up so there shouldn't be swappers of mine waiting for swaps out there.
I'd need to put all the slams I have into circulation...so if anyone wants some extra slams...you are very welcome to ask :) Let me know how much you can take!
(No, Lilith ;) you are already on 90% of slams I have hee hee! But I'd like to send you those few slams I have without you in, if you want :))

X-posted in SlamConnection and my own lj

Ok, so I am in the final phase of my thesis and need some ljs to examine :) It will be a linguistic comment...so I will see how sentences are structured, how metaphores are used, how slang or colloquial expression are used etc etc etc
I need both  ljs from English mothertongues, and  from people whose mothertongue is not English 
if you wish so I will not name your lj-url so nobody will be able to get to your lj. But anyway my thesis will not be published so it will just remain in the university archives
I'd be very grateful if you would accept to help me ..and I need an American and an Australian mothertongue who update often, to examine their ljs too...I have none in my f-list :( so if you have any friends with those characteristics please please instroduce them to me :)
thanks SO much!

PS I already asked this to a couple of  you and then I thought to write this post instead of many single requests :)

Jun. 4th, 2007 @ 06:43 pm my thesis!
Current Location: my room
Current Mood: productiveproductive
I am going to write my (master)graduation thesis on livejournal! hee hee!
I found this great  teacher that  mainly asks her students to study/research on linguistics aspects of the internet etc (chatrooms, webpages, mailing lists) and when I proposed to examine the linguistic aspect of blogs she said it was a perfect topic nobody examined before! :) so I chose lj! I am so excited, usually a thesis is the last and most boring step of graduating, but I am totally thrilled :) She also told me I must finish within december since she's getting a sabbatical year in 2008. So yay, I will surely finish University (finally and eventually!) within 2007!  I am happy!

*ahem* I feel a bit guilty coming here after such a long silence and basically asking you a favour...but ok, I'll explain :)
As you might know I decided to keep on studying after the 1st-level university degree and joined the specialization courses. There was a mistake so I was first told I had to do 10 exams and took it easy. After a year I was called by the boss of my course who was so sorry and ashamed to let me know that they gave me wrong info and the exams I really had to do were 30. I was shocked! But I had already paid 2 years of university (2700€) and done 7 exams so I didn't want to lose money and exams by leaving everything. So...if in the 1st year (that was actually  half a year, as I graduated  in december and joined university in mid-march) I did 7 exams...in this 2nd year I managed to so something impossible and passed 19 exams. Now only 4 are missing but I feel totally drained, out of energy , tired. But my goal is so  near that I can't quit now. So...that's basically why I am so silent here and in all other online communities and also why I dropped many of my swappers and became a slow replier with my remaining ones :(
So, one of the things I play with at the end of the day is this fun site I have come across. Basically they give you one free match for each game per day. You can earn virtual money by simply playing. For example in one month I earned 7 bubz(that's the name of the virtual money) and I am close to requesting a free gift. (and I really want the bunny stuffed animal!) You may be suspicious but no, you really don' t have to pay anything. They earn with people who love their games so much and decide that one match per day is not enough. Those people can buy matches for all the games. But if you decide you'll never give them money you can play your free matches every day and collect bubz so you can ask for gifts in the long run. 
If this made you curious and you want to join please do it following this link, so you will become one of my friends :) prettyprettyplease :)
