So 2011 kinda continues it's crappy start for me, but bad things come in threes right? And March is the third month, therefore I am working on the principle that after this the year is going to start looking up. It's the usual housemate stuff combined with school stuff -- who had a Prof. tell them they had the intelligence of a 10yr old? Why yes that would be me. Jackass -- and lastly the ever fun health issues. However, I feel that I have more than bored plenty of people with those issue, and while I think I would benefit from maybe finding someone to talk to about how miserable I am here, I am focusing on some positive things at the moment.

Firstly I want to say how much every day is brightened up when I see that [personal profile] jenniebart 
 had posted one of her lent ficlets. Always a highnote to the day for sure!

For all cat lovers, the following advert is a little gem to me. Also makes me wonder of all the possibilities.

I'm trying to keep busy too by working on a piece of original fiction that I started and is currently at 24,000 words. I'm feeling proud that I'm that far through. Not sure that I will let anyone other than [personal profile] theskywasblue  ever see it and not giving up on it after the first couple of thousand words means a lot for me. Admittedly, it's currently taking priority over my schoolwork, which maybe isn't the smartest thing I could do but after the way my teacher's been treating me I've gotten a rather apathetic view towards school.

I've also got a beautiful new picture of Kougaiji to keep me happy whenever I'm starting to feel down at the minute. Ebay is a wonderful site! And the prince is a sexy thing, though I know I'm a bit more of a Kou lover than quite a few people. **goes back to staring at the pretty prince**

Why yes, I am now back at University. Is it as bad as I was fearing? Yes and No. However, if this is the way that 2011 has decided to start I think I'll just skip this year.

I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas and a wonderful New Year, and that Jan had treated you all well so far! I wanted to say thanks to all of you who I recieved cards from - I have kept them all and look at them when I am feeling down. It works wonders!

Cut for gratuitous whining )
Best moment of the year so far? Sitting in my 18th Cent Literature class talking about Phillis Wheatly, this very middle class girl suddenly starts banging on the table screaming about how none of us know how hard it must have been for the authoress to be black and abused and how dare we talk about her work without understanding. Even the Prof found it hard not to crack up, I have a feeling its going to be an entertaining class.
