On the bright side, I'm over the word minimum, and for the first time in my life I will write something with length to it, and prove that I can in fact do so.

On the dark side, I'm nowhere near finished and the draft is due in like, a day and a half *panics*. I'll send in what I have with a very apologetic letter as to why it doesn't have an ending. My reason for only being 5,000 words in instead of like, 10,000 (at least) like I wanted is that every single MAJOR assignment for uni was due in fucking October, so LJ got put on the backburner, and reversebang only gives a month (this time around) to write the damn thing.

Also, I have to write my statement of intent for my honours application, due tomorrow. Which I HAVEN'T STARTED AT ALL.

I usually hate acronyms, so here's the full version:

Fuck My Life.

Also, I want Sherlock to come back. I miss it.

Also, I had a really shit semester for uni. I'm so glad it's over. Well, sort of, I still have exams.

There are some truly amazing people participating in this year's bigbang. I'M SO EXCITED. AND AND AND THOUGH SOME OF THEM WILL BE POSTED IN THE WEEKS BEFORE MY EXAMS, THE MAJORITY OF THEM WILL BE POSTED AFTER EXAMS, DURING THE HOLIDAYS! Where I will have a fuckload of time to read and read and read because I'm a loser who has no other plans.

But I can totally accept loser status. BECAUSE IT'S BIGBANG.

But I have so much to catch up on- I haven't even finished last years list!

Also, I have to submit something for springfling tomorrow. *GAH*

Numbered for convenience:

1. I love Matt Nathanson's new song- "Faster". I've had it on repeat for the past three days. It's also possible that [livejournal.com profile] _mournthewicked  wrote a hot little J2 fic in one of her verse's using the song that I can't help but think of nearly every time I hear it.

2. I'm back at uni, have been for one week now, and it's already doing my head in. BASICALLY, I'M GOING TO DIE.

3. I saw Black Swan, and holy moley moses. Can't say I loved it (I need to see it again) but man, did I appreciate. My inner psychologist went WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, IT'S THE CRAZY. CELEBRATE.

4. That friend I mentioned that I hadn't talked to in months? We're speaking again. It seems it was a misunderstanding involving forgetting to pass on new email information. But, I'm still upset with my best friend ('C') for bailing on our plans. I haven't spoken to her in a while either. Neither has she called me, so I don't know if I can call her my best friend anymore.

5. I've been trying to clean up those unfinished fics I'm planning on posting, but I read them over and just think 'lost cause', 'lost cause' and they're so awful I don't even want to put them up, even under the guise of being unfinished.

My modem died. Until the new one (finally) arrives, I am without internet. Currently, I am getting this message to you via the university computers. You have no idea how lost I am without it, and how much LJ stuff I'll be catching up on once I get it back.

Where we hate our government so much, we change party leaders every few months, just to spice things up.

Okay, so it's more of a political thing than the people's entertainment, but really, last election the opposition (which was Labour) changed party leaders like, three times before we got K-Rudd, who then got voted Prime Minister (just so we wouldn't have John Howard for the hundredth year running) and the recently booted-out-of-top-seat Liberal Party floundered around for the next few years re-electing their party leaders every six months or so (and I think in one case, one only lasted only a few weeks because he was a major douchebag) because they weren't popular enough in the polls (and they weren't popular because they were idiots, like, stereotypical politician idiocy).

Until recently. Recently, little Kevy hasn't been doing so hot in the polls, and took a real hit because of some new tax on mining companies, and so today, he was 'challenged' (or maybe he was challenged earlier, idk how these things work) and, well, fired; and about an hour and a half ago, they put Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard in the PM position.

So Australia has it's very first female Prime Minister, only months before the election is due to come up, and knowing this country's penchant for changing leaders, she'll be PM until then, when Liberal will most likely be re-elected (after they change their leader 3 weeks before the campaign starts).

I'm not too fond of Ms. Gillard, though admittedly I don't know very much about her at all, apart from the fact that her new cut-and-colour looks wonderful (she used to be an orangey-redhead, but now she's a darker redead) but with any luck she'll stay on, just for the sake of there being a female in charge (and then all males will be ordered to stay home and clean the kitchens while us girls take care of global business). At least the toilet seats wont be left up with her around.

On another note, I'M FINISHED WITH EXAMS! LET'S ALL GO GET DRUNK TO CELEBRATE and wake up the next day with glitter in our ears and in our armpits, wondering why we're sleeping on the garage floor on a makeshift bed of paper fortunes from those fortune cookies, and having had the strangest dream that Australia changed party leaders again.

I have several favourite pasttimes. One of them is reading, another is writing (though we all know how that goes) and another- is bitching about my university until someone tells me to shut up.

I went to a lecture the other day. This isn't so much omgyouwenttoalecture??? because I generally do attend them, but I haven't had an honest to god proper lecture in like, four weeks due to holidays and public holidays and abrupt cancelling and staying home because I have an assignment due I should've started weeks ago, but didn't and hey! I can totally get the lecture notes off the internet (which I have not done. yet).

All of the above constitutes the following: why the hell am I going to uni? I'm surprised I'm getting good marks! Clearly, I'm naturally awesome.


I went to my lecture the other day, which was on perception. Normally I'm like yay, perception! because thinking about how what we perceive and how we perceive it creates our own reality yadayadayada it's all very philosophical and I lap it up like spilt chocolate milk on a clean sanitary surface. I love it. But at the moment, we have a guest lecturer for the rest of semester, who's a specialist on auditory perception, which is kinda cool, but he can't teach for crap. About halfway through yesterday's lecture, I gave up listening, and instead composed the following:

So I JUST submitted a semi-major essay for my acting class.
I say "just" but it's not true, it's was fifteen minutes ago.

It was due online at 11.59 pm. Which, while on the one hand gave me a lot of time to work on it, it aslo meant that at 11.50 I was freaking the shit out and almost yelling at the computer to hurry up and upload the page, so I could upoad the assessment. Oy.

And on top of it all...

I'm pretty sure I didn't answer the question properly. Ah well, I never really do, and it was kind of a narrow question. I had to do a few long winded explanations to up my word count and explain WHY this particular point answered the question and... yeah. I really hate essays. And my marks show it.

But anyway, I'm now on STUVAC (which is the oh-do-very-clever nickname [yes, in capitals] for Student Vacation). It's only a week, but it means that I get to be even lazier and procrastinaty  FOR A WHOLE WEEK. I'll regret it by the end of it, knowing I didn't do a goddamn thing condusive to health or education, but I'm planning on working on Big Bang. At this stage, I'm donna end up dropping out, so here's hoping this week turns it around. (I also thought of another story, just a flash fic, the other day. I really wish my brain would just deal with one at a time).

Also also also, DON'T TELL ME ANYTHING ABOUT SUPERNATURAL. I'm flipping my shit because I'm four episodes behind already- though I have been watching the promos and sneak peeks, so I know what happens in the promos and sneak peeks- but I have to catch up slowly because otherwise I'll use up all the internet download at home and everyone will be angry at me. I would use the University's internet, but for some reason, even though my system is all properly set up and compatible, it won't fucking conect. Keeps telling me I have to "download the Java plug-in". Even though I have. Several times. I even changed my anti-virus program to a better compatibility just to see if it would work.

It won't.

And as much as I'm itching to send the IT department an email, there's no way I'm gonna get a proper answer, or an answer within a week. Previous conversation with various departments of my University has taught me that. I've just about given up with them.

Anyway, I'm totally rambling now. I kind of have nothing better to do. I'm a little tired (for over-exertion of the brain... and the fact it's past midnight and lately I've been retraining myself to go to bed earlier) and am getting to the point where my sight's a little dizzy and I'm bordering on delirious. I'm probably still running te adrenaine rush of submitting an assignment with two minutes to spare (yes, two minutes, I need to learn better time management). But at least I'm no longer sick past a sniffly nose and somewhat hoarse voice. It just drops out randomly every now and then.

But goodnight!

I've even created a new tag... I hate my university. I'm going to use it every time I get screwed over by my educational institution.

So, I've been totally AWOL for the past three weeks. Nearly. Oops.
I've had a lot to do though.

Okay, so it's only been a little bit of uni stuff that transmorgifed into a lot because of procrastination. Don't look at me like that, I know perfectly well I fail at being a good student.

Anyways. I've been purposely avoiding anything that has to do with work, though the muse is still running rampant and fiction is still at a standstil. There's about three or four I've got going, all for the snapshot challenge, so less than a thousand words should be a piece of cake with a spoon attached but no. It isn't. It's hard. It's terrible writing, I can't help thinking I was an idiot with plot and whatnot but I can't start from scratch on them because otherwise they'll be little sentences of how much I suck.

So instead, I've been trying to put this onto a dvd. A Very Potter Musical. If you love Harry Potter, and have not seen it yet, do. For some reason, even with over 100 GB of space still on my computer, I apparently do "not have enough space" for 4 GB of video. *sigh* Ah well, I watch it over and over and cause giggles and learn the songs and have a romp.

Also, I've had the acoustic version of this song on repeat. I've totally fallen in love with it and play it any chance I get. Come on get higher by Matt Nathanson.

I'm considering an acting class for my elective next year at uni. It's been two years since I've been on stage and whatnot and it took me four years in the first place to totally let go and not care in front of my class- so I'm a little hesitant to sign up for it. I was planning on doing the play or musical or whatever that'll happen next year with the universities unofficial musical/revue group, but this is different.

Also, I'm considering next years SPN big bang. I kinda have an idea, but am terrified that I won't finish or it'll suck or whatever. I'm totally going to need my own therapist and cheer squad just to get me to sign up.

But I shall stop fretting. I will finish my two exams and sleep for a month and wake up and just do it.

Yes. that's exactly what will happen.
