I'm going to try and update more frequently from now on.
Yes, this is the start of something beautiful!
I'm going to try and update more frequently from now on.
I have just taken my last exam as an undergraduate.
Let me reiterate, I HAVE JUST TAKEN MY LAST EXAM AS AN UNDERGRADUATE!
Tomorrow I have to have this interview thing about the final year project I was doing this semester. I really have no idea what they are going to ask. I hope I can remember enough about it from when I was writing up my report hmmmmm.
After tomorrow I will have finished my degree, mostly (it depends on if I'm boderline for my degree classification or not).
Again? AFTER TOMORROW I WILL HAVE FINISHED MY DEGREE!
Oooooh. After having about *thinks* 6 weeks of solid deadlines, this feels like a dream come true. My general well-being needs this so much.
As soon as this interview is over I am going to:
- go home for the weekend
- draw (so so much)
- make a new site layout
In that order.
So, all going well, expect new Clematis next week!
*fall on floor* *roll around*
I have recently come across the Japanese duo Depapepe. Such pretty uplifting music! Listening to it is like having a long summer afternoon in my head :D
I just ate Jesus!
The taste was heavenly! *guffaw*
Okay. Yesterday Steve proved that he is five kinds of awesome by making us personalised biscuits!
Oh. Ohohoho. Take a look.
From left to right:
Top - Steve, James, Nick, Me
Bottom - Linda, Jon, Maggie, Jesus
Yes, Jesus is a member of our household too XD
Man, I bet he'd taste of awesome (but no-one's been allowed to eat him yet).
Have a close up of me:
Oh what a likeness. My expression is...I don't know what it is, but it's super.
Oh man I want to eat Jesus so bad!
Immensly important final year project report handed in - check
Synoptic exam taken - check
Clothes ironed - check
Still to do:
Molecular evolution exam
Interview about final year project
Finish colouring in this picture OMG
It seems that trying to revise 4 years worth of a degree in 2 and a half days is
difficult impossible. I'll keep going at it though, my exam is tomorrow D:
It is really cold here at the moment. Like 13 degrees cold. And it's raining.
My washing took ages to dry because of the weather, but now I'm too lazy to iron it.
Last night I thought there was a spider on my face. I screamed and jumped half-way across the room and wouldn't go back to sleep for an half an hour. But in hindsight, I think it must just have been my hair on my face and I was sleepy >_>
As of today I only have one coursework deadline left!
(and two exams)
I also applied to another job today!
I've been hanging around YouTube a lot today also.
Some of the things I found:
An Ouran High School Host Club AMV - It's the best AMV I've seen in ages.
And the special mention goes to:
jpwoo, drew me a fantastic piece of fanart! I thought I may as well mention it here seeing as it stars Moo, as well as Sethmosis from Clematis.
Atacking characters with a spoon for the win! This picture makes me awful happy.
I had fish and chips for dinner ^_^
*pats stomach contentedly*
Oh it's been a lazy weekend:
Jobs applied for = 1
Final episodes of Shipwrecked watched = 1
Crumpets eaten = 4
Some pointless things:
- I liked xxxHolic episode 6. No mentions of Subaru (really, what was I expecting?), but Yuuko looked good!
- I was disappointed in Nana episode 6. Ummm...haven't I seen this all before? Like in the first episode?! Man, I've been waiting this long for them to start sharing an apartment in the big city (that's why I was so interested in this story in the first place!), gah!
- I've been listening to the Jyu Oh Sei OP on repeat. I like it for some reason...maybe it's the counting :B
- I'm fascinated by the lyrics to Necromancing by Gnarls Barkley. You know how you can listen to a song for ages, but not actually listen to it? And then when you finally take the time to listen to the words you're really shocked. Cor blimey, this song is dark! See below:
Its naughty, very naught necrophilia
Without a care in the world Im
Compassionate about killing her
Ahh to have my way with whats
Left of the will in her
A cosmopolitan, cocaine and an occasional
Pill in her
When she spoke I saw a spark
but it was dark so
I drove her home
once she died sexy suicide
Sweet nothings for the numb
Feel where Im coming from
have no fear everythings fine
My girl parties all the time
Did you hear what I said
With this ring I the wed
A body in my bed
She was cool when I met
Her but I think I like her better dead
The production is progress but the
Reason is retro.
The cords are of cold blooded murder
I named it neo necro
I whispered in her ear to hear an echo
I keep her its cheaper I love her too much
To let go.
We discussed over dinner how she would die
Before the day was done
So I caught her just in time to have a little fun
You could use a little sun
So scream and holler run and play
Wish you could die another day
Im glad to say that I
Done what I could to revive
My softer side survived
Man bet she was alright
When she was alive
Woo! (see also: Yay)
I handed in the draft of my report today. Now I have a whole week before my next deadline. Breathing space!
Man, I feel like I've been working too hard. I stayed up until 4:30am last night listening to a mixture of Gnarls Barkley and Wolfmother and putting my reference list to rights.
I don't have to do anything today, apart from watch Green Wing.
Also, I promised Mariya I'd make her a picture too, so here you go :D
Yes! (see also: Woo)
I read both xxxHolic chapter 105 and Tsubasa chapter 115 today. They're both so exciting! What does it all mean? I have no idea.
So James and Linda were complaining that they never get a mention in my blog. So I made a little tribute to them. Linda, James, you'd better like this or so help me God I'll...
They are two of my housemates and are both lovely lovely people. Lovely I say! Lovely!
It seems I spent a disproportionate amount of yesterday looking up "Snakes on a Plane" on YouTube. There must be some viral marketing behind it surely. Strangely enough, I don't mind the idea of viral marketing at all, in fact I enjoy it wholeheartedly and I applaud the person who thought it up, because it's a very clever way of going about things.
Also, Snakes on a Plane can only be awesome, I can't wait to see it.
Here is some official footage from the film. The quality is quite poor though; try as I may, I can't download it properly.
I don't know which parts I like the most:
- The bit where Samuel L. shoots a snake,
- or the bit where he uses a snake to whip some guy.
Part of me would be happy if this film actually turned out to be a really scary thriller, but another part of me would love it if it turned out absolutely awful. It's a win win situation!
On another note; I finally bought a Communist Party T-shirt. Much love to the Threadless $10 sale!
I have a bone to pick with the new ending.
It's cute; they show everyone when they're little.
Syaoran's past - tragic, Kurogane's past - tragic,
and Fay's past??
He's got a pink magical pony!
A freaking magical pony!!!
*gets a hernia* Now, I don't know for certain, but I really don't think that Fay's past was all fun and magical ponies.
The episode wasn't too bad, but I keep remembering how nice the movie looked and weeping. I won't mention the strange order of the worlds, I don't understand it, but I'm over it. They'll show Ashura sometime though won't they? *can't wait to see Ashura*
Watching xxxHolic as well though, I suddenly remember that I do enjoy the storylines in xxxHolic so much more than Tsubasa, even if the character designs are incredibly inconsistent.
But dear lord. A PINK MAGICAL PONY?
Two weeks to write perhaps the most important piece of coursework in my whole degree, the length of which would normally take me a month to write?
Recently I have been enjoying myself by listening to Justice's remix of The Fallen by Franz Ferdinand. Go listen! You can hear it on their myspace page.
Thanks to Steve for reminding me that I like it.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Tomorrow is my last day in the lab, then I can concentrate on my coursework! Not long until the deadlines now.
So little time, so little time *mutter mutter*
