Whoever thought it was a good idea for me to go to university should be found and kicked repeatedly in the back side

-.-

I'm going to try to write regularly in here, in case you all want to hear about the boring nothings that make up my existence lol.

Basically, we find our heroine thus:

- Swamped by readings for school, at the moment I'm reading Victory by Joseph Conrad, Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle, Ulysses by James Joyce and Dracula by Bram Stoker. Plus I'm writing for my fiction subject, and doing other individual readings for each subject. -.-

- Learning how to drive. How very embarrassing to admit.

- Obssessed with Dr. Phil. I will now not hear a bad word spoken about either Elijah Wood, the Jerry Springer Show or Dr Phil.

- Trying to write. Everyone aparently has one good book in them, and I'm yet to find mine. Am I the only person that finds writing a really, really attractive career? Think about it. Get paid a lot for sitting around and watching Dr Phil (!) and writing. -.-

Anyways, that's me. I hope you are all happy and healthy and I love you all and thank you so much for being patient with me. There's lots of things left out about the bad parts that are going on, but no one wants to hear about that. I'm okay.

<3 Em

P.S I was thinking of making lots of new icons because I'm starting over. Any suggestions? <3

P.P.S Oh and everyone do this! gacked from pessimistchick <3

I'm sorry I haven't been around for awhile. Things are pretty hard here though, and I didn't want to fill up this journal completely with my sadness, which is what it was looking like.

I still don't know how often I'll update but I'll try to, because I really miss you all.

Whoever keeps giving me hugs, I heart you very much <3




Edit: I appreciate the fact that people believe The Passion of Christ is a good movie, but can you please stop spamming lj's with links to the trailers? Especially anonymously. I'm changing it so people can't post anonymously on my journal but I really don't like that I have to do that.

I've been staring at this picture for ages trying to work out something to do with it. I love the colours in the picture itself, it's awesome. I don't know if I did it justice but oh well :P It's a pretty picture anyway.

There is an awesome icon tutorial here on dtissagirl's journal that you should all check out, it's really really good :D

Andrew from Ex-Work calls:

Andrew: Hey Meg, can you do me a huge favour?
Me: Hmmm. Okay.
Andrew: Can you do a 7-Close shift on Wednesday?
Me: Andrew...I don't work there anymore.
Andrew: Wha??? No one tells me anything!

Am on diet. Makes me unbelievably irritable.

Pro
Am on diet. This is a good thing.


Blah. Life, as Fanny Price said in Mansfield Park is nothing more than a succession of busy nothings.


Edit
I've also been tweaking my NaNo story to send to a publisher *crosses fingers* as well as working on a non-fiction project I've started. In between reading my books for school *facepalm*

Today I ran into a girl I used to live next to ages ago, over seven years ago. I've seen her around a few times, she works at a shopping center near where I live but we only ever say hello and exchange smiles. You know when things get uncomfortable when you haven't seen people for ages?

But today we went into her store and my Mum struck up a conversation, asking about her parents and everything and she told us her Dad had passed away of cancer two years ago. I felt so incredibly bad, we had no idea and I had no idea what to say to her. I left with her email address and promised to write when she moves to NZ in a month, but I kept thinking how scary that was. I felt so bad for her - I knew her Dad for ages. He was my Dad's age and she is my age. It could have been my Dad. It was so scary. I felt even worse for the fact that it was for stupid superficial reasons that I hadn't approached her early, like the fact that I would wonder what she'd think of what I looked like after all these years, and the fact I'm still at Uni and she's got a full time job.

I hate how superficial I can be.

Slow Day again. Started reading The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde for uni. Came up with plans for a way to go out on my last shift with a bang with some people from work but didn't do any :P I thought I would feel really different about finishing, but it just feels weird.

Have fallen in love with the Evil Dead series and Bruce Campbell in general. Army of Darkness is the funniest thing I've ever seen. It actually has heaps of shots that echo Lord of the Rings, especially Two Towers, as well as POTC. Methinks lots of people are indebted to Sam Raimi.

In other news, drinking 2L of water a day is v. v. hard. Damn 28DayPlan.
