Thoughts of the Unconfident
I wonder if, perhaps, I’m being over-friendly, that she’s gone from whatever she thought about me before to finding me annoying or even creepy…? And… I’m overanalysing again, aren’t I? When the realisation of my feelings hit - and I needed to be told - I never thought it’d involve...
The Campus in Autumn
Years ago - four years, in fact, it seems a strangely long time - I had a feeling of what University life might be like. Warm and comfortable, studying books or taking notes, while outside rain fell and cold winds blew leaves from the trees. It turns out that, now...
Physics and Piracy
Today, I tried to get my Light and Matter problem sheet done. It went pretty well, and I got quite a bit of work done. Then I took a break for coffee and chocolate, and Mark’s family came over, and we watched anime and had take-away delivered and played silly...
Rainbows after the Rain
As we headed into the city centre, the morning’s wind-whipped sunshine turned quickly into a shower and then into rain. It fell in sheets as we sheltered under the awning of a shopping arcade, and dripped around and through my umbrella as we dashed quickly from one shop to another....

A Feeling I'm Not Used To
There’s a feeling, or perhaps it’s more like a lack of a certain feeling. Everything in life seems lighter, happier, more easily dealt with. I think, for the very first time in a long time, I’m not angsting. I’d forgotten how good it felt. Last week’s problems seem now… skipped...
Something Like an Explanation
Okay, here goes a fairly major update. Wednesday Wednesday has not since been mentioned. It is better that way, I think. Thursday Did nothing. Avoided RockSoc pub-crawl due to Wednesday issues and the Dungeon being full of RockSoc people. Friday Met with my final year project tutor for the first...
Racheet Psychology 101
Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a happy post. I’m not sure quite what it is - it’s both angsty, and angry. At least, as close as I can still get to anger. When I first started writing I was very pissed off, and by the end was in tears....
