It's alive!  
Man! The last two weeks have been so insanely busy! Today is my first real day off in weeks! I was supposed to have a big list of things to do but I just thought, 'hang on, sanity has to come before other things', so I'm taking a mental health day and staying home instead of heading into uni.

I HAVE, however, been working quietly on fic. I think I've sorted out the main problems with my post-22 fic, and done about 500 words on it today. I deleted 2,000 words last week so I'm glad I've (hopefully) fixed it. I'm also trying to leave room for it to be vaguely S5 compliant because since I have two assignments and only 3 more days of not-work between now and the 10th, (11th here, technically,) I doubt I'll have it finished before then!

I kind of hate my new job at the moment, but that's mainly because I haven't had my proper days off this holidays and I'm very aware that this was my only time for a break before the end of semester.

OH, and I found out today that the ONE paper I need to take to graduate has been moved to second semester next year. So uh, unless I can convince them to let me out of it, my degree is delayed by a YEAR. Trust me when I tell you that I was NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL! I've sent off an email straight away, because I'm FURIOUS. Because if they had informed us in advance I could have either taken it this year, or not taken it, gotten out of it and I would have been finishing THIS semester. I am SOOOOOOOO FUCKED OFF.

Finally, I'm working on the next episode of my anime now as well. I've so far mentally cast Jared, Jensen AND Danneel to play various characters.

That's enough of me talking for one day. Love love!

EDIT: Oh, and I just wanted to have a little mini-spaz over the fact that my supernatural/J2 folder in my bookmarks reached 400 fics this week. 400! I have an addiction and no shame!

What? A new year? Life keeps moving? Lies!  
Hi all!

This is just a quick update because it's late and I have class in the morning, but I feel nothing has happened on this journal for long enough that people might be wondering if I was eaten by a taniwha, (if you don't know that that is, Wiki it, they are cool).

What's going on?
- I had a great christmas (well, post-christmas, I didn't leave till boxing day) with my family, mostly just sleeping lots and getting to know my brother's new girlfriend, and swimming, which was nice.

- I also had a great birthday, New Years Eve going on Random Adventures with some friends and then fireworks in the town-square at midnight which were FAB and then hugs and stuff. The actual day was marred by some less-cool stuff with my brother but then my flatmates were really nice and made me a cake so it was okay.

- Today I did some more work on Dry My Tears. ...I KNOW! INSANITY! Over the break at my parents' I started on a J2 short fic as well, but I'm not going to say how/if these will eventuate out because (next point)

- I am about to start my next summer paper - Creative Writing for Stage (today! In 9 hours! Must sleep first!). Which... well, I'm extremely excited/nervous about. I also have my manager going away on holiday in Feb, which is going to make the next two months IN-FUCKING-SANE. Then I have a (WHOLE, OMG!) week of break before semester proper starts again. This coming year is really important to me and is going to be real test of whether I can stick it out in academia, so I am making NO promises about fanfic. It's still a huge priority but it's just extremely hard for me to get my head into writing-mode when I'm obsessing about essays or whatever. On the plus side though, half my papers this year are ON creative writing, which maybe will stir me up more than the last few years. We'll see.

- Finally, 2008 was a real humdinger of a year. Full of massive ups and massive downs. Fail grades and A+es, depression and epiphanies. Friends, family, love and hurt. I don't think I could have squeezed more into the year if I'd tried. A big thank you to everyone who was good to me, a big >:[ to those who were shit to me, and also a big thank you to all the interesting people around at the moment who keep me clicking the refresh button on life, not just the internet.

Note for 2009: Climb more trees.

This is a stupid redundant entry, feel free to ignore.  
BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!



There is no TIIIIIME!


I'm sitting here, it's 1:46am, I am giving myself tension cramps. I'm serious! I am so going to have ulcers by the time I'm 35. I am _trying_ to write, (fiction), read, (fiction), and write (communication) all at the same time, knowing that I really should be in bed so that I can study heaps tomorrow, but I just can't bear to leave!

guh.

On a positive note, I've got inspiration chewing my toes off, (at least procrastination has a _few_ upsides!) And thus a new fic has been inspired, this in turn has caused me to have heaps on fun writing a semi internal monologue for Harry P., which has been more fun than I thought it ever could be. Woot for me.

Oh, random: Bought Spirited Away. Damn, that movie always makes me feel sooooo........... swish. Encouraged brother to buy Batman Begins so that I could watch it. (so self-sacrificing!)

rar.

Just a quick note, for any who haven't noticed  
JUST incase, anyone is getting the wrong impression by my lack of good manners:

No, I am not being rude, I am just rarely online at the moment (I go through these phases at times) I have a huge amount of crap to do in the next two weeks, so probably will not be around any _more_ than I have been until I am back home. I am making an attempt to keep up with things, but please understand that this is difficult at this time.

This isn't really pointed at anyone in particular, just a general note to absolve me of any potential guilt!

Harry Potter Fanfic stuff )
