my day, a picspam )

Sometimes I really do love my country ♥

Yesterday I got a haircut. Today I got a degree. Here's one photo )

My shoe fell off as I went up the steps to the stage; it was really rather mortifying. Luckily the front of the stage was covered with flowers so most of the audience couldn't see, but everyone up on the stage could :/ So I shook the Chancellor's hand and had a photo with the Vice-Chancellor while wearing one shoe. That pretty much tops off my academic career perfectly.

just a small picspam this time )

You all know that my resolution this year is to get my ass to Aussie.  To that end, I've made a progress journal over at [ profile] x_just_want_x  (the xs in there hurt my soul, but I really wanted that username and all variations were either deleted and purged and required me to buy a rename token, or 'reserved usernames', which apparently means it contains a prefix reserved for LJ's use  :/ )  I am going to make this shit happen, somehow!
steffish: (xmas kiwi)

I realise no one else cares, but this is primarily my own journal and i like photos.  So!  My Christmas, a fairly brief picspam.
more photos )

HTMLing all those fucking pictures is too hard, i should learn to actually use semagic's handy fuctions for such things. wait, that comment was while I was still trying to work out Scrapbook.

I think I'm going to regret pissing people off with all this spam when I'm soberer :/ And showing just how shit my natural writing style is when I'm not in a state to edit for coherency.

Yesterday I attempted to make a start on my "eh, I'll do it in the holidays" list that's been building up for a couple of months by tidying my cupboard. Well, nothing much has been thrown away, but the memories are always fun (it's why what should be an hour's task takes me a whole day)

~ Stories Nic and I wrote on the typewriter at Grandma and Grandad's for something to do... literary classics with lines like "snort i noticed u nticin me so i came over to anollage u to say i saw u shakin u pony bum at me snort" and "the depressed girl walked into town feeling sad that the only 'person' who would hit on her was a high donkey". I really want some more of whatever crack we were on.

~ The cast list from Cinderella when I used to go to Starmakers... people on there who I didn't know at the time but looking at it now I'm like "wtf? they did drama with me?". Several Dio girls, a chick who writes for Nexus, brat I babysat, and some others.

~ Really back in the day, Belinda. "she says me and Jenni are the main suspects for the problem". God I wish I'd written more back then (I was like 9? 10?) because I don't even remember what that feud was about except that it was utterly heartfelt (her: "my mum says you're a bitch and she's right") (wow, thinking on it I don't think I was quite so socially retarded when I was younger... maybe incidents like this "ex-best-friend turned utter cow" helped turn me into my paranoid distrustful emotionally distant self! can't believe I only now got that.)

~ Old Japanese exams make me feel smart: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
WHY the FUCK did I stop studying that?!

~ My book of doom from 7th form. This is never getting thrown out. This book is an absolute snapshot of my life in 7th form. There's a diary of our Australia trip. My Japanese speech written out from memory just coz I was bored. Random calculus. Notes from philosophy. Religious musings. Doodles. Essays on Othello. Fanart. And an 'as it happened' diary full of even more emo than this lj at the time, which is fairly impressive. Oh, and records of texts with Barlow: the only couple of months I ever used more than my 500. (god, is it any surprise I'm 'a bit' romantically retarded when the only flirtation I've ever really engaged in involved endearments such as "dark mistress of the realm"?)(don't even ask. Good fucking times though).

On that note, does anyone (Erin, Ruth?) know what Barlow's up to these days? We all know I'm useless at keeping in touch with people, especially with such a weird history to deal with.

~ ... and during the day I get progressively more ridiculous looking as I find and put on gloves, Minnie Mouse ears, and my super-huge Ravenclaw scarf:

this pic has too much geekery to fit in an arm-length myspace pic, so you get the bathroom mirror myspace pic XD

These two weeks are finally over. I just finished writing up my first three genetics labs, and even though I'm fairly certain I haven't included everything that should be in there I just can't be bothered anymore. It's not worth that much anyway.

I had tests in all my papers last week, and did better than I expected on all of them :D I was disproportionately pleased by this rather illegible scribble on my genetics test

Back at Fraser I was so used to getting smileys all the time from Ms Clemens and sometimes from Mr Hope, it just makes me so much happier about my mark when the teacher says that it's good ^__^

In other news, my Dad bought a motorbike.

He's been wanting one ever since he got rid of his old one before I was born, but in the last year or so he's been talking about it all the time. I'm gonna feel a bit worried whenever he's riding it, but it's made him happy, so I'll handle it.

This day in the life thing is addictive :D

So yes. Classes are finished for the year and I'm on study leave. Very little studying has occurred so far :P Our art show is next weekend so I've got to finish off a couple of paintings before then too.

After being introduced to [ profile] ditl via [ profile] inked_cauduceus' old post (a day in the life of a med school student) I thought I'd give it a go myself. A lot of pictures. )

I came third in the ditl contest :D

Mum and Dad are in Hastings/Palmy visiting family until Monday, and Nicola's at the beach with friends until Tuesday, so I've got the house all to myself. It's an utter mess at the moment, but I'd rather do all the cleaning at once rather than doing dishes all through the weekend. Thankfully we were given an extension on our Japanese History essays, because otherwise I would have had to be working on that like crazy tomorrow. Instead I just get to bum around doing nothing, enjoying a couple of days of peace :D
