Im alive! I really need to post in this thing more often. Not that I usually have an awful lot to say, my job takes up most of my time and theres rarely anything to report on.

Thor and I have been moved out for about a month now. Thank God. Things are going better between us now that I can come home to my sanctuary instead of household tensions every day. I thought we'd have problems making ends meet and I thought we'd argue over it, but its easier than I thought it would be. That said, I do have a huge overdraft to pay off, so Im selling art on ebay. Nice and cheap too, for originals.

Hmm  
It would appear that, despite having folks on my friends list, said folks cant read my friends only entries. This is bizarre. I wondered why nobody was commenting (bar Nina, why are the rules different there?)

It's been a while, hasn't it, chaps?

I rather fell off the internet and into the real world for a bit, there. My apologies. I then realised how much the real world pisses me off and fled back to the comforting folds of comparative anonymity like the god-forsaken hermit that I am

All subsequent posts will be friends only. There are too many witches abroad that would cackle with glee at this insight into my little world. Too much to hide from far too many. Too much has already been said here but theres little point in going back and hiding it all. It's already been picked over and turned against me. My own fault, I suppose, for having faith that people could handle an unveiled opinion, that egos weren't quite fragile enough to shatter so readily beneath the meagre force of a single contrary mind. My mistake </contempt>

I suppose this post is to find out if I still have an audience

1 Year!

I've been in a relationship for a whole year. Well, that was Friday, now Ive been in one for a year and a day, pretty much. Quite an achievement when you consider all previous relationships lasted 2 months. Nice. :P

So we ate chinese and drank my 21st birthday champagne

Dom is happy, heres to another year

Well, since my last post things have changed. Lots.

Had another huge argument with Ad shortly after I posted that last entry. It was pretty final. Scarily final. I'd like to say that it seems much better now but I dont want to jinx it. But it does. It really does :) Going to make a concerted effort not to get so aggravated when he's being his uncommunicative self, cos that seems to start the rows more often than not. Im the kind of person who, when upset, talks before she thinks. This exacerbates an already unstable situation. Im going to get into the habit of, when upset, reaching for a notebook and taking out my upset on that instead. Then, when the time is right, I can approach the source of my upset in a calm and rational manner

That sounds progressive, ne?

In light of the 'patching up of things' Ive been looking after Ad since the weekend as he came back from London with the lurgy. I pump him full of lemsip and cough mixture and what do I get for my trouble?

Infected :P

I have a really bad earache, a throat that is forever dry and a head that feels like its been filled with rice pudding. Thanks Ad, I know you love me really 9_9

God, I really fucking hate my tutor. We have tutorials on Mondays and every single week he screams at me. He just tells me off like Im 5. This week he told me off for not having enough ideas. I've got loads of ideas, I didnt realise he wanted the shit ones too ¬_¬ Then he told me to bugger off (yes, he said that) and come up with a new idea every half hour. That didnt start the day particularly well. It didnt help that Ad had said he'd give me a ring once Uni was over for the day so I could go round and enjoy the last little bit of time we had together before he went off to London for the majority of the week, Turns out, he skived for the day and didnt ring me. I ended up going round and asking him whether he intended to speak to me at all. I ended up crying because it was such an awful day. Ad being characteristically uncommunicative and Graham (tutor) being a total hack. I'd like to learn how to skin bots in Quake just so I can make them look like Graham. Every time he upset me I could go home and turn him into meat :)

Speaking of games, one of my essay questions for this term involves critically analysing how narrative is constructed in games. Never has an essay question come so naturally to me. I was chatting to my lecturer for ages about how on some games there really isnt a narrative and on others, its so painstaking that you're pretty much led by the hand the whole way through it... Just went on and on really, but Im so psyched about writing it. My plan is to spend tomorrow round Ad's (he'll still be in London and I have a key) 'researching' the essay. This will basically take the form of me playing as many of his games as I can and 'writing notes'

Doesnt get much better than that, really

Well, its been a pretty damn profitable weekend ^_^

I think I have enough books to keep me from getting bored now. Gotta go catch a train back to Ponty in an hour or so and its the waiting thats a total pain. Im bored out of my skull. Theres not enough time for me to actually properly do something, but theres too much to spend sitting at the foot of the stairs, waiting

Im less than pleased that I have to go back to my room, where my computer may or may not be working. It's all very limbo-y. Schroedingers cat (spelling? dont care :P)

ARG!

Guess what I did last night?

I went to see Serenity *cackle*

I was so surprised at how packed the place was, it was amazing. The whole thing was amazing. I laughed, I cried, I subconciously decided I would go see it once a week until it finishes its run. Yes, it's that good. Need to go watch Firefly now. Oh, the glee

Also, Im still losing weight, somehow. It's not going as quickly as it was, but I'm frankly surprised I'm not gaining weight at a hideous rate. Especially considering how many BLT sandwiches Ive been consuming of late. The full fat ones too, not the 'good girl' versions. If Im gonna sin, Ill sin all the way ^_^

Ok, thats bizarre. Even though I've practically starved for a fortnight, in that time it would seem I havent dropped a single lb and yet I've lost 2 inches from my waist. How the hell is that even possible?

Bugger it, at least my effing jeans fit a bit better now ^_^

Here are the instructions:
1. Go into your LJ’s archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag 5 people on your friend list.

Whether it's true or not, I never tire of hearing stuff like that

Yes, well, this was in reference to someone telling me I was pretty. 3 years on and I'm still the same vain, self centred, twitching bag of neuroses I always was

I'm tagging anyone who cares *shrug*

Last night I slept on the sofa cos I was bored, annoyed and stressing. Yay. I graduate this year and bugger knows what's going to happen then. I dont like my chances of falling into an animation job straight from uni, they're very slim, given that the tutor you can generally rely on to get you in with one of his many contacts, really doesnt like me. Not much I can do about it. Trying to get on his good side meets with disappointment. The ideal situation after its all over with is to move into the room below Ad's and pay a pittance for rent and no bills. I imagine that means I have to sell my soul to Tesco in return for enough cash for that and food, once it's all been taxed away by my shiny new, no-longer-a-student bracket

I weighed myself yesterday. Around 150lbs. I'm 5'2" so thats basically too damn heavy. My "ideal weight" is meant to be 125 (according to "experts" who dont know the first thing about my body structure) I'd say I didn't look 25lbs overweight. It's all bollocks anyway, I don't remember the last time I weighed anything less than 135 so I'm happy to go back to that. All I'd have to do is cut out fat, just like I did before. A diet of fruit & fibre and tuna noodles it is then. Come back in a month and lets see how hot I am then

17 days until my birthday. 21. What a cruel age. I'm no longer 20 then, im officially "in my 20s" and that can mean anything from "fresh out of full time education" to "wrinkly bitter old wench approaching 30" And we all know that life ends at 30. It aparently begins at 40 though, so Im not sure how that's supposed to work

Im sad, people. Cheer me up :( Perhaps I can convince Ad to bond with me over Planescape Torment later on
