I just spent the entire day having a LotR marathon. =D Twelve hours! Extended editions!! Ahh... amazing... I didn't realise how much I missed this stuff.
Now... need sleep.
Ahh there is nothing like a fire alarm at seven in the morning to really screw you up. See, it's too late in the morning to be able to go back to sleep properly, but it's too early to actually stay up. ARGH! Who on earth was doing what at seven in the morning on a friggin' monday that could possibly set off the alarm?! Anyways, I ended up taking an afternoon nap and sleeping right through dinner... Haha.
I have got to stop doing this. I really have got to stop doing this. Procrastinating. It's becoming a bit too extreme. I mean, in the end, it's all okay because I do manage to get things in on time. But the point is... I end up drinking too much red bull in a desperate attempt to stay awake, and then when I am actually finished with whatever the work was, I just cannot sleep. Because I am wide awake. For hours. Quite frustrating. On the other hand, it does seem to motivate me to update my lj. Oh, and I guess it allows me to squash in watching Memoirs Of A Geisha. Which, by the way, after all the incredibly bad things I've heard and read about it, is not such a bad movie after all. Maybe it's just because I expected nothing? Hmm... no. I actually did like it.
Anyways, I'm off to err... sleep? Or attempt to anyways. Nine o'clock maths lecture awaits... *sigh*
Merry Christmas everyone!! Hope it was a good one! =)
So... I really have been abandoning this place haven't I? I don't know why, I used to love writing here. But for the past months I've completely ignored it. I haven't even been checking my f-list as much as I'd like to. So from now on, I really will stick around my LJ. It's such a good outlet for... anything! I might as well use it. =) I guess this is turning out to be some sort of new year's resolution: update more. I wonder if that will actually motivate me. So... new start on LJ? Mhmm and a new layout is also desperately needed. We'll see about that. And who knows, I might even start making icons again and show some life on that graphics journal of mine.
Anyways, I'm back in Belgium now. My first term at UCL passed by so quickly, it's unbelievable. I'm not even going to bother talking about how everything went and what it was like, because I don't think I'd ever finish writing. So much has happened, so much has changed. Including me I think. But it's enough to say that I enjoyed all of it. The people, the course, Ramsay hall, the city... It's been a good start, and in a way I think I'm looking forward to second term. Well, to everything except the work that is. =S
But for the moment, it's good to be home, though a bit weird. I need to get used to it again. And finally holidays! It's going to pass too quickly, it always does. Let's hope it's going to be good.
More babbling later, because for now I need to sleep. People are coming tomorrow morning at nine to check the heating in my room. NINE! WTF?! That means I need to get up early! Argh!! And I was just beginning to enjoy the long lie-ins. *sigh* But it is necessary... it's so cold here, and I kind of need the heaters to work properly...
Wow. It's been a while since I updated LJ. So much has happened in that time... it seems like the first weeks of uni have just flown by. It's so hard to believe I'm almost halfway through my first term at UCL!
Anyways, from now on I'm going to try to update regularly again... hehe. We'll see how that works out. =)
Oh, and also, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Went to Prize Giving today. Nothing special, and slightly boring as usual. I have no idea how they always manage to get such boring speakers. But anyways, it just kinda made me realise just how much I'm going to miss the BSN. *gets all sentimental*
See, it's good to get an older driving instructor, because they have more experience with driving and everything and they can teach you better and blah blah blah... but make sure you don't get someone that's too old. Their health might not be completely stable. And then all your lessons get cancelled and you have no idea what's going to happen at the practical exam.
Seriously. Lesson learned.
Needles. Ack. I had to go and re-new my tetanus shot today. Never mind that I absolutely hate getting injections. But now, my arm is so damn painful it feels as if it's about to fall off everytime I move it.
And I have a two hour driving lesson on Monday.
