(slightly belated) Happy New Year flist! :D Hope your celebrations were what you wanted!
Mine ended up being quite awesome despite the way it began (very delayed train, wait in the cold, misunderstandings and more waiting and worst of all being stuck in a lift with eight other people for 20 minutes because we were too heavy! It was terrifying, though makes for quite a story!) I did end up going to the random rented apartment party which began very civilised with nibbles, polite conversation and wine. But add to that time, liberal quantities of Absinthe and things did get a bit out of hand. With people being sick in beds and me being uncharacteristically brave (again, blame the absinthe) and getting who what  I wanted for once. As a result was hangover until the evening of the first and had a midly awkward morning, but despite the bluriness and not enough dancing, it was much with the fun!

Am going to Morocco very early in the am hours, so should be trying to get some sleep now! Am very excited! It is a very spontaneous holiday with people I don't really know that well and only carry on luggage for over a week. I am the sort of person who carries a suitcase for a weekend trip, so packing was sort of scary, but ended up being unexpectedly fun.

Hope the start of January is more with the good than the bad!

It's never too late to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! Not that I haven't been around, I've just been quiet. Which is rather odd for me in RL but there you go. I hope everyone is nicely recovered from their chosen festivities and settled into the new year. (Harry Potter fandom, wank is not a pretty way to start the year, not that I really expect better)

I liked 2006. It was an amazing year. Won't do a meme, or maybe I will later, but 06 was probably the best year ever. Have visited 8 counties, had the most amazing summer, met some wonderful people, improved friendships, passed my first Oxford exams, lived. Not sure what this year has in store, though a few things I am afraid of but won't be getting into that now seeing us I am good at avoding issues.

Celebrated New Year's Eve on the Isle of Weight, visiting a friend, considering I had been, and still am a bit, rather ill, sadly no alcohol was involved, but they have a tradition of people dressing up in fancy dress and going on a pub crawl and that is what we did and it was lovely. So surreal walking the streets and seeing hundreds of people of all ages all dressed up in the most amazing costumes, bops have much to learn, I have discovered, in terms of effort put on a costume, some truly amazing things, wish I took pictures. The island itself is very pretty, amazing scenery, I was taken on a tour there...god only yesterday, seems like much longer, just before embarking on the 5 hour journey back to my house. I rather like travelling, as you do nothing and yet you are not considered idle for you are moving, if comforable a journey is my favourite thing. That was not a comfortable journey. The fact that my iPod died 5  minutes into it and that Plato's Republic was the only reading I brought meant that I spend a large part of said journey playing games on my phone. 1st of January well spend.

From tomorrow I am a changed woman. Resolutions I don't tend to do unless they are very immediate and extremely doable, so I will try.

Immediate and extremely doable goals:
1) Fucking start revising already, the past have erased any memory of Ethics from your brain. That is very bad indeed.
2) Find a house. You will otherwise be homeless. That will be rather sad for you.
3)Same goes for a job, it doesn't matter that half the deadlines have gone and that applications make your eyes bleed rather like that guy in James Bond, you need to make rather than waste money this summer.

Everything else:
1)LESS PROCRASTINATION (like that one ever works)
2)LESS FEAR, do the things that you want, don't be an idiot.
3)Rethink priorities! Don't miss out on having fun, now is the time, not later.

Oh and: 1) Watch the OC, it makes you happy!

Happy belated birthday [personal profile] lizardspots! <3 Hope that the year is really good to you, for you very much deserve it!
Lots of love to [personal profile] annephoenix, just because.

Happy New Year!!! Here's hoping it's better than the last and wonderfully happy, full with creativity, joy and new people!

However it's not starting off well for me with my internet not working for no apparent reason. That sucks.
