Argh. My computer is an archaic piece of crap without a decent internet connection, and my job means I'm too tired to ever go online.
Plus I don't have much of any interest to say, anyway. My time's divided approximately between Alex and my job at a theme-park, and with the exception of this week, I haven't been doing anything that exciting.
Well, this week's not exactly exciting. Alex and I have to look after a psychotic puppy and a smelly old dog (neither of which belong to me), which is... hard work, to say the least.
And I've been a lazy bum, so the comic's barely been updated at all since I went on holiday, which was over a month ago.
So... yeah. I'm alive. Maybe I'll start updating again.
I was thinking of getting a new LJ, though- this one's been going for a while...
I go to France tomorrow. Normally I'd be excited about going on holiday, but the thought of spending 2 and a bit weeks away from my boyfriend, with my family and my sister's fundamentalist Christian friend, doesn't really fill me with great joy.
Plus I have no energy at all, and don't feel like doing anything apart from going to sleep. :-(
I got back from university today. This year has gone faster than I could possibly have believed.
And so, at the end of my first year of uni, I'm going to look back and reflect.
What can I say? It's been an interesting year, to say the least. I've acquired friends, enemies, and a creepy stalker. I've discovered that Java is the most evil programming language ever invented; that the Welsh live up to their thieving stereotype; and that contrary to all logic, physics students are some of the coolest people I've ever met. I've discovered that I have a talent for karate. I've learned that it's possible to live on nothing but bacon sandwiches and instant ramen for a semester, without dying of scurvy or malnutrition. For the first time in my life, I've met other people who like anime as much as I do. And I've met the most wonderful guy in the world.
So... yeah. It's been a good year.
And now, an aside: for the first time in my life, I'm dreading the summer holidays, and especially my family holiday to France. I've been apart from Alex for less than a day, and I miss him already. :-(
Ugh, I'd forgotten how horrendously slow our home computer is, compared to mine at university. I keep thinking it's going to crash or freeze or something, but no, it's just pootling along at its own pace.
And Alex definitely gave me his cold. I am
annoyed unable to smell or taste anything touched. I am also about to fall asleep. Home has a weird effect on me- I seem unable to stay awake after about midnight. Which is odd, considering I usually work/arse around until about 2 a.m. most mornings at uni...
I totally retract what I said before- now I'm worried about my computer science exam. I am so doomed... why am I majoring in a subject I patently can't do?
And it doesn't help that I've spent most of the evening chatting to Alex on MSN, rather than actually revising. To repeat: ohfuckohfuckohfuck.
OK. Calm. Deep breaths. The exam will be fine.
...why the hell am I wasting valuable revision time posting this? Damn, am I really that desperate to procrastinate? And I want coffee, but I'm scared to go in our kitchen because it's vile... :-(
And the fact that I now have Alex's cold is doing nothing to improve my mood.
Today I feel like crap. I think it's the combination of several days of very little food and not much sleep, catching the sun yesterday, and exam stress.
I nearly fell asleep in my German exam today. Luckily I didn't actually fall asleep, and who knows? I may even have passed.
And I've gone all sappy recently. Ick.
Nothing much to say, except that it looks like my guy problems are finally over. ^_^
I'll leave it at that for now- the only person on my friendslist who knows what I'm talking about can find out for himself, if he hasn't guessed already. :-p
Why am I making cryptic LJ posts? I don't know. I'm short on sleep and full of caffeine, and in a generally wierd mood today. Hooray.
At the moment, my life is a string of catastrophes and bad things, one after another.
Let's see... I had an exam today (which I guess doesn't really count as a bad thing per se, since it wasn't that hard, but even so I feel complete drained now); my karate grading is tomorrow, and every time I do my kata it gets worse; my friends all hate either each other or me; and everything's just generally crappy at the moment.
Unrelated note 1: How much should I read into a guy telling me not to say "aww" to him, because it makes him blush?
Unrelated note 2: I have Dragonball Z Bukdokai 3! Yay! (Only trouble is, I don't have a PS2, so I have to go over to my friend's place and steal his.)
I don't much want to go to the pub later, but Alex invited me and I can't really say no... :-(
