I got nearly twice as much sleep this afternoon than I did last night… Hopefully by stocking up on food and coffee now I can manage to get some work done this evening, and hopefully I might be able to get to sleep when I need to, rather than lying awake not being able to fall asleep…
Yay~su… Exalted went on until 2am yesterday, then add on the walk home, getting ready for bed, and waking up at 7.30 this morning - I got three and a half hours sleep last night! Since I did manage to get up at 7.30 I made the effort and went in for my Maths tutorial, but I couldn’t think straight the whole time, and kept closing my eyes… That’s why I gave up on the other two lectures that I had (in theory) today, since I really would have just fallen asleep.
I’m back home now and waking up a bit, but… I think I’ll go to bed for the afternoon, then wake up for dinner and do my work afterwards… and ARGH! One of these days I’ll have the time to start revising for my exams… first one’s on Monday, and I still have two of this week’s problem sheets to finish before I can start revising… Why don’t they cut down the amount of work we have to do towards the exam period!?
Nothing much to say, life’s quite boring. Lots of work to do, going to play Exalted tonight.
I came up with an idea for a new dance game earlier, I’ll try and work out if it’ll be easy to do, and if so I might make a cheap version to test out the idea.
So, today. I have achieved exactly nothing. Done nothing, except eat. Tomorrow, i think I really need to start doing something worthwhile…
I can’t be having with any more of this work tonight, even though I still have half of both my Quanta and my Forces & Fields problem sheets, plus a maths problem sheet, to do by Friday… oh, and there’s a Circuit Theory test on Friday too, what fun! Bleh…
It seems kinda’ odd being back here again, but then… we were only away for three weeks… Bournemouth, I’ve decided (with all my friends and family there) is better than Southampton. But living here is great too! We celebrated our first evening back as Flat 4 by… drinking and ordering a takeaway pizza! Nothing ever changes, does it? ^_^
Admittedly, my only idea that the first dream of a new year should be special comes from Azumanga Daioh, but… I wonder… If only the dream I had two nights ago happened last night, it would have been awesome… As it was, the dream was kinda’ messed up and confusing and really stupid in the way lots of dreams are… It was something to do with counter-terrorism, like being in the SAS or something, but all the things that happened, happened in either a desert, or a strange superposition of a hotel, a hospital, and Southampton Uni. All I can really remember now is that it involved a lot of running around…
NewYearFun! I met up with Adam, Ant and Rich at Adam’s house to start with, for Pop’n, IIDX and sake, then walked up to the Talbot Arms for the evening. Unfortunately Richard wasn’t feeling great and had to go home… The evening wasn’t all that exciting, but at least no mingers of doom like last year! ^^ Elise turned up later after doing delivery driving until 10pm - eek! We stayed until about 1, then headed home. Adam forgot his housekeys and phone so couldn’t get back home, and so both him and I decided to go to Ant’s house instead. We got absolutely drenched on the way back! >< Anyway, we stayed up for another hour and a half at least at Ant’s house, and Ant and I watched some more Bottle Fairy, which owns.
All in all, a pretty good night… shame Dom didn’t come, Richard had to leave and Godfathers (best Pizza/Kebab/Burger place evar) was closed. But apart from that, great! Pics will be up on the site as soon as I get back to 10MBps internet access on Sunday.
No, by the way, I’m not actually writing this at Ant’s house, it’s back-dated ^_^;;
The dream I just had… it’s a rare thing, these days, to have a dream with a proper story - a beginning, a middle, and an end. Well worth staying in bed for an extra 3 hours for! ^_^ Of course, memories of dreams fade fast, and I can’t remember much of the story any more. But the end… the final, enduring image of the dream… Two young people, one male one female, dressed in armour made entirely of multicoloured fist-sized gemstones etched with gold… Holding similarly gem-studded swords… Whilst standing on the kind of beach you see in adverts for Caribbean holidays, just staring out to sea. And the sense of completion, that everything had a happy ending…
I woke up inspired to write more of Dreaming Awake, but in the end, all I wrote was a LiveJournal entry and yet more introduction to the story. But I think I was inspired to change the way the structure of the book works. I think I want to try it with the occasional piece of narration between the chapters, which steadily gets more and more important and intrusive right up to the cataclysm at the end, where you finally realise that the narration is done by Ian/Tsuki, in the brief moment of transcendence…
Merry Christmas everyone!
(Wow, that was a lot of HTML tags for just one sen
tence.) Anyways, w00tage! It’s Christmas! I’m now the new owner of aawesomely shiny digital radio, a really nice pair of boots, a couple of books, and an electronic toy dragon thingy (yes, I’m 18 going on 5 ^_^), and a stomach full of turkey and all the rest! Mmm, good day~su… It was good to see my grandparents (dad’s side) too - my Grandad’s just finished a five-week stay in hospital, and still doesn’t look that well, but it was good to see him anyway!
More of the same tomorrow when I go off to visit the other half of my family! My parents are being boring and not coming =P but I’m going anyway. More turkey, mmm…
I hope everyone else is enjoying Christmas too!
(I should really start doing some work someday soon, I’ve got loads to do. Erk! That isn’t something I should be thinking about on Christmas day.) I’m off to try and find something decent to watch on telly. Mata ne~!
