Cheers, copperbadge !
I don't know how well I did yet, stupid system is stupid, but since I know I passed I decided to treat myself today. And while I was poking around in various lovely shops in the Northern Quarter, I found these!
( Two pics under the cut )
I still don't have a job, but I sorted out my finances, and had dinner with my grandad. I think he realised what he's been missing and wants to set things right before it's too late, which is fine with me. It'll be nice to get to know him after all this time. :) I just wish he'd done it sooner, it's a bit awkward as it stands.
In fandom-related news, I'm trying to write the next chapter of Warning: May Contain Side Affects, but the bunnies have deserted me for now. If anything happens it'll be posted on the kink meme. I'm really sorry, trying to find somewhere to live was killing me. Maybe the bunnies will return now. XD
I've never been a major fan of birthdays, they're not as important as the big holidays like Christmas or Halloween. (Yes I think Halloween is important. You get sweets, people. FOR FREE. And you get to dress up like a monster and scare little kids.) I'm not doing much today, just going to Jitsu like usual and having a sleepover with wonderm.
I've done a lot this year, I've moved out, started university, got my yellow belt, figured out my sexuality (mostly) made new friends and been to my first con. XD This has been a good year for me, even if it's been punctuated by bastards leaving my mother and occasional panic attacks. I like life at the moment, even though I'm not where I thought I'd be a year ago. No job, no house and going home for the summer. Still, it could be worse. I could not have come to uni at all, and never done all this. I think it's worth it.
Tl:dr: Sleep deprivation makes Keeva philosophical.
So, I got my photos developped! They're a bit blurry 'cause disposables are shit, but you can see who they're supposed to be, which is awesome. i also have photographic evidence of meeting Craig Charles and Gareth David lloyd, which I'm dithering about posting. Damn paranoia.
( Picspam! )
I went to the London Expo this weekend!!! I went with two friends, we went down on Friday and stayed in a youth hostel. Apart from not getting much sleep, the trip was fantastic, especially waiting in line with all the cosplayers dressed up. There were some really amazing costumes, they must have taken ages. Mine was just a loli Alice in Wonderland, which didn't really take much effort, but I loved anyway.
I bought loads of stuff, and took lots of photos, which I'll post when they've been developed. I even joined the Caramelldansen conga line! Until my goggles fell off anyway. ^_^;;
Anyway, picspam of merchandise!
In unrelated news, I just got a call back from Diesel. I have a job interview!! Things are looking up!
I just read on here http://copperbadge.livejournal.com/
As far as I can tell, this means that it's harder to find these books, hides them from view. This policy is discriminatory and also stupid. We don't need a shop deciding what we can look at.
There's a link to a petition, and the Amazon customer support page on the page linked to above. If you find this as daft as me, please write to Amazon and tell them so. Maybe they'll change it if they realise how much custom they'll be losing.
I finally got The Dark Knight AND Batman Begins for the low low price of £12!! Score! And I got Armstrong & Miller series one, Elite Beat Agents and Watchmen: The Companion to the Film.
...Yeah, I think I know why I'm skint.
Anyway, male cheerleaders beckon!
Sorry about the excessive use of exclamation points, but I'm so relieved to be going to university!! After not getting the grades I wanted, I've been a bit upset, but this cheered me up to no end.
I actually got the place on Tuesday, but I've been waiting till it was confirmed until posting here. I'm a bit superstitious. ; ) *bounces* I'm going to uni! YESSS!!!
