Because really all I can say right now, my icon has already said it...

I should not have spend the last half an hour making it as well as renewing my paid account so that I can upload it, because I need to read, but I am tired and sleepy and not getting anywhere with my impossibly long reading list and I needed a break.

Now back to Mill, I used to love Mill, I still do I think, but I don't quite remember why.

P.S. My brother came to visit me and managed to make the wireless internet work, which is probably not that good a thing...our network name is The Messy House, truer words were never said, it is so awful, who knew living alone would be so hard?

P.P.S. It is only 10 o'clock, it is only 3rd week and I feel like it is about 3 in the morning, this is not very good.

Okay, in order for me to actually not fail collections, I have to not come online at all for the next week because I lack all self control and simply can not spend my time productively when I can spend it here. :( I leave you with an icon meme stolen from [personal profile] loneraven because yay for icons.

Icon meme )

Questions for you:

Which of my current icons:
1. Which icon do you associate most with me?
2. is your favourite and why?
3. is your least favourite and why?
4. would you like some context for, don't get, or just generally want more info?
5. have you never noticed I even had before? (No need to list here, I am guilty of being very monotonous when it comes to chosing an icon to post with)
6. What do you think I should have an icon for that I don't?
7. When you comment, use your favourite icon and tell me why you love it!

Spend a very long time yesterday redoing my layout, that is to say I customised all the different options and after a lengthy period of elimination I decided on this one! I really love it, the pink was starting to give me a headache, however it might change again soon as I am not yet used to the friends page.

Have had four hours of driving in the last two days which is quite a lot and am really pleased, driving is FUN! Even if I am not very good, next time we are doing roundabouts, since I live in Milton Keynes we have a lot of those. Need to start learning theory.

In fact I need to do so many things that I will need a big to do list and actually follow it because what is happening now is that I don't know where to begin and as a result am not doing anything at all.

It turns out that my school has a Prom website full with pictures, (people submit theirs I think) I even found myself on the background of one, it is weird seeing the pictures because the majority are of people I have never spoken to and some I don't even know the name of. Hopefully later on in the week we will be getting our Year CD, that's right we can't afford a Year Book.

Oh and I am good on my way to filling the 100 available icons, I heart my icons, isn't this one fabulous?

katia: (STFU)

I have been back for a week without updating or even communicating with people much, don't go on msn for reasons unknown and have buried myself in fandom as a sort of way to escape the real world, or exam results to be perfectly honest.

And today I get a magazine from the Independent that tell me to


And I want to listen to it even if it has arrived too early and informs me oh so helpfully that "The waiting is over" when it most certainly isn't but I can't. Up to now I have suppressed all thoughts concerning results, simply refusing to think about them but in less that 3 days I will know and I am so terrified and so unsure even though I know that I will be definitely going to a university the question is which one and it shouldn't matter that much but it does.

Oh yeah, my dad came home to tell me that a colleague told him that his daughter said the results will appear online on the ucas webside Wednesday evening! I don't know whether to believe this, but I have heard from other people that the universities would have made the decisions before we get our results and this decision will be on ucastrack early on Thursday morning. (before we get them from school) Does anybody know if that is true? I don't want to know, I think that it is evil to not be given a chance to call your university and beg.

Oh and LiveJournal, sending me remainders every five seconds to inform me of my soon to expire account? Not helping my mood! Especially since now you get 100 icons! OMG! I don't care how but I am getting that. *plots credit credit card fraud. Eh* Thank you, thank you, thank you! ♥♥♥

One good thing is that I can finally find a reason to use this icon, I love it like whoa.

PS. I watched the first three episodes of Lost yesterday, impressed but want more character development and soon.

I am sure all of you are just dying to know all about how my maths exams went, too bad because I will tell you anyway. But consider yourself lucky as I am using a cut.Read more... )

In other, better news I had the english mock (the war one) today and it was quite fun. It was very official, we did it in the Hall with GCSE people, and even though I didn't quite finish it was nice. I liked the extracts, one of them was from Arms And The Man which I hadn't heard of prior to today but which is set in Bulgaria, and has Bulgarian people in it, I found this cool. It is really funny too, has a modern feel to it despite being written in 1894. There was also an extract from Pat Barker's The Ghost Road, the third in the Regeneration trilogy and it was so good *wants to read now* It is a shame really that I have done no further reading, no novels anyway, as I want to read Regeneration, and not only for the shallow reasons of it being historical slash, all the extracts I have read from it are really good.

In case you are wondering, yes my life has been taken over by exams. Although I am going to a party on friday with people from my old school I haven't seen in ages and that makes me happy. Also I am in dire need of a Prom dress, I thought that I have a long time, because it is on August 19th (day after results day. WHY?) but I am now also going to my old school's prom and that's on July 1st, day after last exam. So I have no time to *buy* a dress and no idea what to do with my hair. Every time I think of it, I go all guilty for having silly worries. Vicious cycle really.

Also my flist is Star Wars crazy and I think I am getting infected or something, because I want to see it now. I am not a Star Wars fan, haven't even seen all of the original trilogy and thought that the two new ones were kinda awful but suddenly the love is everywhere and I want to see it. Maya's summary also helped, and I certainly haven't been reading any slash. Nope *hides*

Also I have a question which is silly, but indulge me. What do you think of my default icon, the pink one. I never thought that I would have an icon that I keep using, but it sort of happened and now that my 50 icon ran out *cries* and my paid account runs out in a week I guess I will have to just go back to three *cries more* But I want to know if you all hate my icon, because it is pink and pale. I always associate people with their icons and I was wondering whether you do too and how do you see me because of it? Feel free to express hatred, I don't mind because I love it as it goes with my layout and I found it randomly and squeed. Wow that was a weirdly confusing and long question, if you actually got till the end *offers cookies*

I finally started to read Oranges are not the only Fruit today, am just over half way through and quite like it so far. In fact more than I thought I will, the vague memories from starting it last summer were rather negative for some reason. But I still prefer The Color Purple. And the other thing I did today was to make quite a few random icon bases. I was debating whether to post them or not, but decided to post some of them in the end, hoping they will add some substance to my entry. *g*

So, bases. Very random, from celebrities, to random models and too many shoes. Because I like shoes. I don't need credit or anything, but if you like them please tell me. I have quite a few more, which I will post in a few days.

46 Pretty icons, mostly b/w...some nudity :) )

And now a fun, fun meme gacked from [ profile] adela711 that you should all do.

You name three characters, I have to pick one to push off a cliff, one to marry and one to shag. Stick to the fictional characters, either gender is okay.
