Again, I fail at Livejournal.

The funny thing is that I am on LJ every day, just not on my journal. Mostly browsing my flist, communities and lurking horribly. Anyway, this is just a post to say that I am okay and everything, just busy. I have exams in January, so I'm just working through and am about to start revision for all of them. I have just two weeks left before Christmas break, so I am looking forward to that. I'll probably be around more then.

My birthday was really nice, so thanks to everybody who wished me well :D

And one cool thing, before I go: Merlin: Secrets and Lies for 2.10. After the title sequence, they play a really short clip from the Expo, and me and my friend, D, are in the crowd, in the second row, shouting "WE LOVE MERLIN." It was pretty surreal actually, because I was just working whilst watching it, not fully concentrating on either, and I was suddenly like "what's D doing on my TV?" So I paused and rewound a couple of times to watch us squeeing and waving. It now officially counts that Merlin got us on TV, and we shall be forever immortalised in it. AWESOME \o/

Of course, the thing most people seem to be posting about: Doctor Who.

Is there life on Mars?Collapse )

Sorry I've been so quite the past few days; I've had a barrage of tests and practical assessments (including one tomorrow, ugh), and have been trying to get to bed as quickly as possible, which sadly limits my internet use. But I think the sleep is worth it. ME + SLEEP = OTP at the minute, for srs.

Also, slighly off topic, but relevant to my interests: I was searching YouTube for videos from the Merlin panel at last month's Expo, and I came across this little gem (which may or may not embed properly, but it's up here anyway):

You can actually hear my question at 07:40 (I'm the "young lady at the front" lol), so now I have me speaking to Angel Coubly, Katie McGrath and Johnny Capps preserved for all eternity on the internet. It's quite strange that my voice is now on YouTube, but I'm happy and don't care :D

Oh, and last but not least: my birthday is tomorrow, which is kind of kickass, and kind of a downer, but I shall just see how it rolls. So this is me saying goodbye old age, and HELLO NEW SPARKLY AGE on my journal. My third birthday on LJ *pulls party popper*

For some reason, checking my flist today made me really happy and feel sort of cosy. I don't know why, but it was nice. Keep the good stuff coming guys.

But first up: AN EPIC HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO WISH starsburn for tomorrow. Best wishes bb. I hope that you have a great day, and that nice sparkly things happen to you ♥♥

I spent today learning about and making notes on various sorting algorithms, which is pretty insufferable after a while, but I was able to endure thanks to Merlin. I loved this episode; it was rich with angst and horrible situations that needed plans to get out of, which is always good really. Plus, lots of characters were involved (although more Morgana pls) instead of being ignored, which gets annoying.

Anyway, the real reason for this post is a meme (oh, how I have missed memes!) from appleindecay:

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
- I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity.
- Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
- Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.
A cut of every sort is my abhorrenceCollapse )

Mmmm, that took a long time, but kudos to appleindecay for the questions, because they were really good! Comment like the meme says if you want questions, and I shall happily oblige :D

It's late, and my comms aren't going to browse themselves, so GOOD NIGHT TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

HAPPY HALLOWE'EN EVERYONE! (I finally get to break out my ever-so-appropriate Nightmare Before Christmas icon)

I hope you all have a great end of October, whether you celebrate it or not :D

I'm going on a Hallowe'en walk thing in the woods at Beacon Hill (same place as last year), which is always pretty fun. I have an actual black cloak now (it's always been a dream of mine to obtain a cloak) so I guess I'll be wearing that and claiming I'm a witch. Should be good.

My brother's also coming home, and me, him and  my parents are going to see Michael Jackson's This Is It in the evening. I'm pretty excited about it (that's a mild understatement), and I have no idea what I'm going to think of it, so we shall see...

And main thing: tomorrow (or rather, today) I'm finally getting contact lenses! I've had glasses since I was about 10, and I've been wanting contacts for a while now, and my trial run will be at noon. It's a little surreal since I'm used to seeing my frames 100% of the time. Not that I don't love them, because I do, but a change is always nice. Plus everyone I know is of course accustomed to me with glasses so I may disorientate a few people. It should be fun freaking people out on Monday ;)

Anyway, it's late enough as it now, so goodnight~
