Have said I will do this a few times now, so please comment on this entry, and I will:

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a color, a photo, a word etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. In return, you must post this in your LJ.

So now that the important stuff is out of the way... I went to Oxford today, had an absolutely lovely day. It was warm and the sky was blue with fluffy white clouds which looked painted on. Took two American LSE friends and we went sightseeing, and punting (they were both immediately better than me, I can't steer at all) and took photos and had cream tea and now I am home and feel really sick. :( Not sure what is wrong, I just feel unwell, I think I am being punished for having a day off, which was supposed to be a celebration for finishing my essays but I haven't started writing the second one. I fail. A lot.

Also. Apparently the bees are really disappearing. :(

In better news, I am really excited about the Gossip Girl spin off, especially because there are rumours that it will be a crossover with the OC, as Lily will be living in California in the 80s will know teenage Kirsten and Jimmy Cooper! And if these two shows are in each other's canon it gives me ideas. Because Serena got into Brown and Summer went to Brown, and now I want to read a Serena/Summer fic...

Oh and THIS is pretty.

I am alive!! I realise I have not updated for like 5 weeks, so thought I should let people know what's up. I am not really sure why I haven't updated in so long, It's not like I haven't been around, on the contrary, the last few weeks I have read more Harry Potter fic than I had read in the whole of last year. Hee, other people are rereading canon before the end, I am rereading classic H/D epics....it has been awesome.

I am going to see OOTP with t00bs in London tomorrow! Which will be amazing Oh my god, so excited, can't wait! Haven't read the book in so long, so won't even notice things that are missing, which would make a much less annoying viewing experience. Can't wait to see Luna, I love Luna so very much, love her! And from what I have seen Ivana is fantastic.

Sectus in less than a week! And obviously DH, a large part of me is in denial about that, it is like I know it is going to happen, but I am not really thinking about it, for once am almost completely unspoiled, which is very unusual for me, and hope to keep it that way!

Expect a proper update later, but in case that doesn't happen, the last month or so has been pretty awesome. Despite the lack of summer, and the rain, rain, rain! At least this weekend will be sunny! :D

The last few weeks of my summer term were brilliant, despite work and rain, god they seem so long ago now! Stayed in Oxford for a week after term finished as had my college ball, such a wonderful week that was, no work + Oxford = love, most people were there and there was too much wine and punting in the rain and filming of Northern Lights and eating out every day and so much more. The Ball itself wasn't spectacular but I did enjoy myself and ended up buying a proper Ball dress which I can wear for Not the Yule Ball at Sectus so yay, even if I did spend a ridiculous amount of money on it.

First week of holiday was at home and did nothing. Nothing. Mmm. On the Friday went back to Ox for a PPE reunion dinner with old members, which was amazing. So weird. Most people there had either graduated very recently/not yet or were very old. All the old ones were men and extremely affluent, imagine getting progressively more and more drunk and having to make small talk to the CEO of some company or other who also happens to be the father of someone in your year and some big wig barrister and an ex president of the Union... Yeah... ended up missing my bus home, had to spend the night in a room with three smelly snoring boys. :( However. Acquainted myself with a not so old old member rather well... Meeting him tomorrow, before OOTP. We'll see.

Then last week went to Switzerland, Luzern, to visit a friend. It was pretty, rained there too, but went to many many art galleries. I heart art. And had lots of chocolate and cake  <3 AND climbed a mountain and went in a boat over the lake. Beautiful if ridiculously expensive country.

What else?? Ohh, the job dilemma, I had no plans for the summer, and kept applying for jobs, had an interview last Friday and found out today that I got it. It is with a small company that does political research and is not paying me anything, but it is something, and I shall be in London if I find somewhere to live which will be yay. Start on Monday, which is scary.

Going to bed now, expect angst regarding FUTURE. I have many plans and ideas. No clue. Mostly a lot of FEAR.

How is everyone else??

1st of May!

Happy May Day!

I didn't stay up all night partying, as had to do an essay (and failed miserably, this is going to so haunt me in weeks to come) but I did wake up at 5am as per Oxford tradition and listened to the Choir on Magdalen Tower, it was pretty awesome, though ridiculously cold and there were thousands of people, the croud then took us to Radcliffe square and there were Morris dancers and all kinds of other dancers and fire eaters and people walking their trees around on a leash and a man with a giant cheese hat and then we tried to find a place to have breakfast and our college porter nearly ran us over on his motorbike which was bizarre. I am never doing this again and I didn't do it last year, but I am glad that I did, despite 5 hours of sleep, not writing an essay and going to a tute this morning unprepared and catching a horrible cold so that I need to cover myself with blankets in order to survive...well almost glad. I took a million photos of Oxford all sunny and beautiful and played a tourist and loved it. Hee.

Had breakfast in a cafe called Heroes which was pretty awesome, because I am very sad.

Could not go back to bed as had a tute which was really cool, and this time [personal profile] loneraven barged in my tute instead of the other way round, and my tutor who looks like Sam Vimes (for real) disregarded that the essay my tute pattern had written completely missed the point and made me mint tea and in nice simple language explained the topic. Suspect he thinks we are very stupid, but at least he likes us. (He was on our reading list this week, which is a bit whoa, you know?) Then had very late tutors collections and now have to read about the US detente policy during the cold war which is less that exciting, but it is now warmer outside, both my tutors though last term had gone really well and I will somehow get through this week even though I want to collapse into bed.

My fingers are shaking. I might have a nap, or watch Heroes...

Almost without me noticing, term has ended and candidates have arrived and I am no less busy than I was before. Well more or less so.

There are hundreds of candidates, some prance about with their suits and public school boy confidence, some do not leave their rooms, some are followed everywhere by their mothers, others are dressed up to the nines, heavy make up and mini skirts, so many get locked out of their rooms, can't fid their rooms, need things.

A part of me wants them all to get in, though quite a few are a bit too confident which gets annoying. It has been quite eventful so far. A girl had an panic triggered asthma attack during her interview reading time and I had to call an ambulance for her. Two PPE candidates met in our office for the first time in 8 months sinse when they had broken up, neither knew the other applied for PPE in the same college. We played Bingo! Ahaha, well it was meant to be for the candidates but they left quickly and the five of us remained playing. We even had a microphone.

Am going to go out late for the first time in ages, so need to start thinking about what to wear so the rest

Note to self:

Setting your alarm for 6PM is not a good idea, especially if:

a) You have to get up at 6am
b) You share with someone closer to the front door who tends to get up at 10am and does not appreciate insanely loud knocking ar 6:15am.

How is everyone on this fine, grey November Morning?

I have been founding Oxford recently amazingly gorgeous and gone a bit mad taking photos. But only from my windows, as it is too cold to go outside. So these are my views at different times of day/angles.

Going back to Oxford tomorrow, I suspect that might mean long radio silence what with collection failing and all round catching up. Last few days have spend less time revising and more time immersing myself with OC fic, it's like fic after fic after fic and vids and things and I don't know it's like I thought I got over that obsession back in season 1, back when the OC was GOOD. Which it isn't anymore but I am still addicted *pokes flist* Is there anyone here who is with me? Go on admit it, tell me you are secretly addicted to the shiny californian life? PLEASE. And it isn't even slashy anymore, and I am all for Summer and Seth. What is wrong with me?! Not that I haven't been reading the slash, it's like Ryan/Seth forever, it just really makes me happy and makes me forget imminent failure and doom. Lookit it my new icon! That is why I love House. :D

I think I am running away on Friday.

Last few days have been up and down, was in bed with fever on Saturday, but after that things got better and now I just have the cold which I can live with.

OH.  Am probably getting a new phone and was looking at different ones online with my brother's help because my criteria for phone choosing is pretty much based on nothing but looks.
Brother: No Katia, that's crap.
Me: But, it's so SHINY! *_*
So I chose one and my mum was here and I was showing it to her when my brother decides to click on a different tap, the one with my LJ. Now my parents know I have a LJ, about fandom and things, but well my header has boy kissage and when I tried to click away it sort of froze and so I slammed laptop down and shouted at brother for clicking about all the while my mother is right here and not saying a word. Ahahaha oh god. :( And then we moved on and we said nothing and it was so weird. Maybe she chose to ignore it, I mean what can she say. I suppose I was lucky, my header is hardly adult rated art but still. I totally did not handle it smoothly.
katia: (Default)
I was about to begin a post with a no doubt fruitless attempt to articulate my feelings of restlessness, inability to concentrate and the reasons for my wasting of the last *four* hours when I could have completed my philosophy reading or at least participated in the watching of a girly film next door. However I thankfully realised on time that it would be unnecessarily melodramatic and the explanation is simple:
1. I am sleepy.
2. Bennett makes less sense than Locke himself
and 3. The chocolate biscuits are nearing their end. :( I am feeling sad about leaving Oxford once again and want to spend the evening with friends, however also need to to this essay and as a result am doing nothing.

Maybe I just need to go to bed.

In other news. I read the penultimate DV chapter and cannot believe it is almost over, the Draco Trilogy has been one of the staples of fandom ever since I first got here and something I used to fangirl immensely (to the extend that me and [profile] anna_bonita used to text each other when it was updated) and though I still like it I feel that the ending will be a bit of a letdown whatever happens (unless Harry and Draco profess their undying love for each other, which isn't very likely, oh and Ginny and Blaise too) after all this time. Perhaps I need something new and fresh to rejuvenate my fandom love, I have seen very little mention of the Big Bang fics, are they really not that good? I have read only one and it was okay, though very far from brilliance. Maybe I should read more, feel like reading OC fic but no one around agrees with me and everyone is talking about fandoms and tv shows I have never seen/heard of. Am so out of touch. Oh yeah if anyone does watch the OC, Ryan/Johnny is the new Ryan/Seth for me, but I have not been able to find a single fic out there. Woe.
katia: (Default)
*waves feebly* Finally managed to get internet working, considering I forgot my laptop's cable thing (had to drive back) and then as I got here I realised that the internet cable was also missing, that wasn't a small task.

Am happy to say collections will all be tomorrow, and none on Sat, and by happy I mean really, really not.

I shouldn't be here, but then again where else do any of us go before exams? Also, it is the place where I can freely whine. So that's a warning, whining begins here, feel free to ignore this.

So 6 hours of exams tomorrow, second day of my deciding to come early for it hates me period, a splitting headache right now and the fact than *no one* believes me when I say I know nothing. I am not one of those people that say that and then do, my parents are convinced I will be fine, my friends are all yeah you'll get the top mark shut up now and I just want to cry. Yeah, okay I have very detailed notes which I made, but I don't *know* them, the notes being there doesn't exactly help me. I think I would be okay on the politics, as long as I make stuff up, but who knows. Logic is predictable, as far as the questions we will get goes but that doesn't make it easy and if we don't get last year's prelims as collections for economics I am screwed. I don't know the maths, I don't even know the actual economic theory. I think the paracetamol is working though, as headache is feeling a bit better.

I don't know whether to have a nap now or keep looking at past papers.

Apart from all that I am ecstatic to be back in Oxford, I love it here so much, I didn't realise quite how much I missed it.
katia: (Default)
Hello! Have not updated in ages and too many things have happened for me to attempt a proper update. Will try anyway. :D

  1. It is very cold and crisp, walking through the starlit quads at night gives me such a wonderful feeling of happiness and content and a general sense of belonging. Cannot quite believe that on Saturday I will be going home for just under six weeks. Will miss Oxford and all the wonderful people I have met, Ahmed's Kebab Van, Ben's Cookies, The Bodleian, even Hall food! Well, not that last one, but still. Also my room, can't believe candidates will sleep here whilst I am gone, can't believe it has been almost a year since my own interview. Remember exactly how terrified I was.
  2. FRANZ FERDINAND tomorrow, hopefully will be able to get to Alexandra Palace, not sure how exactly. Thought that I could stay the night in London, but not sure anymore, as don't know where and will have to be back at college for 11 on Thursday for an important meeting.
  3. The vast majority of my friends are at a Ball tonight, I didn't go because have not got a spare fifty quid for a ticket or a dress, instead went to Sainsbury's and bought bread then went to the JCR and watched Trainspotting, had not seen it and it was one of those films I have always wanted to see. Um, I did like it, but I am not sure why and I want to see it again.
  4. Had lovely dinner with the other people that do PPE here and then watched The Rules of Attraction, omg how awesome was that, yes I am shallow and Ian Somerhalder kissing boys is enough for me to squee over a film, I cannot believe there is no fic in which Sean/Paul happens in a more real way than Paul's daydreams. I want to read the book.
  5. I am sure most of you have seen this, however OMG so awesome! You put in music you like and it makes you a radio station that consists of what you said and similar songs, it is awesome and so far no adverts.
  6. Last Bop of term is on Friday, theme's Fantasies. I am sure there are other ways to interpret this, but my interpretation is sexual, have not completely decided on a costume, but am leaning towards a nurse's outfit, because one of the themed nights for the Ski trip is Pirates and Nurses so I will end up wearing it again. The other is white trash. Ugh.
  7. Lots of people have already decided who to marry for next year, we get to be College parents for next year's freshers and I don't know who to marry! Wah, I didn't want to marry a PPEist and so my closest friends have found someone and now I don't know who to marry. Wangst, I know, heh. Will propose to someone as soon as I have figured out who I want.

  8. On Saturday had first cocktail party, to celebrate the end of The Christ Church regatta (rowing competition), I couldn't care less about rowing, but dressing up and going to Freud's, a gorgous converted church was well worth it. It was an amazing night, everyone thought I was drunk and I only had two drinks! Grasshoppers are awesome, I love chocolate minty things, chocolate Mint Bliss at Starbucks is like the best thing ever!
  9. Have only a bit of logic left to do and no more tutorials this term, finishing off the last economics work was sort of hell, but it was then that I realised how happy I was. It was one am, I was wondering around college, (had to retrieve a copy of my text book from a friend's room where I'd left it), it was ridiculously cold, I'd slept too few hours the night before. And yet, I felt sort of elated, it is hard to explain why really. I hadn't even started writing up the three short (two page) essays due in the next morning. I think it had something to do with running into people on the way there and back and stopping for casual chats despite the late hour, seeing the lights of the other PPEists and knowing they too are working on this, calling them at half one to go buy chips and cheese as a break. Sleeping for four hours and still somehow making it to the 10 o'clock lecture. Um. Yeah, I am a freak. :))
  10. I bought Christmas Cards, they are wondreful and have snuggling polarbears and penguins!!
And on a final note, I have a Cedric/Harry bunny that refuses to go away and shall have to be written. Yeah I know I haven't written anything in months and am afraid, but will try my best. In the mean time, have a few (too few, seriously, where is the Harry/Cedric?) Harry/Cedric recs:

katia: (Default)
Life is good. Or it will be tomorrow, right now tutes are so arranged that my next essay is due in *the following* Friday :D There will be maths and Logic in the mean time, but those are not essays and are therefore doable. Yay! (See! This time during essay crisis I resisted the pull of LJ!)

So, will have free time tomorrow and can go shopping, or would if I had money. I have my card now, but the old pin doesn't work and so I still can't take money out, will try to sign things but got pin wrong twice already and am worried that something will happen to card *note to self: call bank asap*

Mondays are evil days, early lectures, two hour economics tute, two deadlines. However I do feel very accomplished. This evening was so random, first went to Travel Aid meeting, then went to the Union for about five minutes before it ended, then went to a stand up comedy show which was brilliant but only caught the last 20 minutes. Randomness, but fun. Will read a bit now (fiction!!!) and then go to bed. :DD

GOF!! Am so excited.

This Friday at midnight with HPsoc.
Then Saturday in London with tons fandom people.

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide assignment scares me...but it will be fun.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] yuletide Santa,
Whatever you write for any of the fandoms will make me love you, sorry about the confusing details, if you want to ignore them I'll understand.
Love, Katia

katia: (WTF? Draco)
Hmm, I don't know what to do.

There is a tube station Bop tonight, (have to dress up as something to do with an underground station, sounds stupid but it has potential) for which a bunch of us was were planning to dress up as Oxford Circus, that is clowns and stuff. This fell apart as people changed their mind at the last moment, and as a result I have nothing to wear, I am not being a lone clown and can't keep buying wings, besides Angel is too easy, lots of people are bound to do that one.

So, I am costumeless for tonight's bop and quite pissed off at the fickleness of the others, spend ages in a fancy dress shop looking lost and was not offered any advice. I don't think I will go, the Bops have not been great so far, and I've always dressed up, but I want to do something instead otherwise it will seem like I am sulking in my room.

Also was informed by the grad student that marks our Logic work that the exam is fiendishly difficult in a positively gleeful way as well as that PPE is meant to have the most workload from all Oxford undergraduate courses, which no one told me when I applied but I am forced to agree. *goes back to econ q's*
katia: (Default)
I've been doing logic exercises most of today, they are ridiculously difficult and also really, really pointless, however I feel strangely accomplished. At least they sort of make sense eventually, unlike the maths which doesn't. Did really bad on last maths work, thankfully after class today got most things but suspect that my economics tutor will offer me extra classes in a patronising way next time I see him. During my tute on Monday I had to draw a stupid graph on the board and I got really confused and nervous but did say the right thing, he didn't understand and told me too sit down, noting my nervousness then proceeded to do what I'd said, thankfully tute partner noticed and told him. Still, it was humiliating. :( Next week I have to be really, really prepared, only I can't because it is just so difficult.
In better news, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide again, last year it was awesome. I am really looking forward to my assignment even though so many of the fandoms I wanted to request weren't there, (What happened to Daria? Why is it not there anymore? It can't be because it isn't obscure, where's the fic then?) I did however ask for One Tree Hill and it was there and yay.
Good luck to NaNoWriMo people! I failed miserably last year, but still plan to finish what I started because I liked my idea, even if you don't get to the dreaded 50 000 words, you will have fun, writing under such pressure and not caring about brilliance of content is quite lovely.

Oh My God, GOF world premiere on Sunday! I will be going to London with fandom people and it will be so much fun. I haven't been to London in the longest time, there is just so much work all the time.

I am so BORED!

I am supposed to be writing an essay, I *am* writing an essay but I am so bored of it that I am doing everything possible in order to avoid it, mainly eating but also checking my email a million times. I was good this time, spend all day yesterday in various libraries doing all the necessary reading, have way too many pages of notes, some are even relevant, and know exactly what each paragraph will consists of.

This is a problem. I know so much that writing it up bores me to tears. I don't understand how people work with plans, especially when it comes to creative writing, how the hell do you do a detailed plan and are then interested enough to carry on?

It must be a gift that I will never possess, and it's been so long sinse I have actually written anything (creative, not essays unfortunately).

I guess I should add something constructive seeing as I am updating and all...

  • I didn't get a ticket for the Snow Ball and I really wanted to go. :(
  • I have so much work for the next couple of days I suspect I won't get to do any of the fun things I want to do. 
  • We have a Pink! Bop on Friday and money will go to Breast Cancer research, it's at the same time as Tolkien soc's Fireworks party, the HP soc's Halloween Feast and a film I want to see. Decisions are evil and should die.

  • I survived my first economics tutorial and even somehow did well on my essay, even if my graph was completely different form other people's it was apparently correct.
  • I had a half seven Fire Drill yesterday morning and thought it was 2 o'clock and panicked and left my key in my room, thankfully after checking they'd left the door open.
  • I should go back to my essay now even though I want to have ice cream and possibly pizza instead.
  • I have tried to catch up with flist but if you think I have missed anything crucial please link me.
  • I have no bread but I do have cheese and biscuits.

  • I want to do something but lack the courage to do it.
  • I feel so restless and full of pent up energy but can't afford the time wasted of going to Yoga, should not have updated.

My Turn

katia: (Shiny!)
I have given up trying to update properly, there really is too much to say.

The short version is that yesterday I finally saw Serenity (will talk about that later) with [livejournal.com profile] sparksandclocks, [livejournal.com profile] jacinthsong, [livejournal.com profile] chains_of_irony, [livejournal.com profile] bigfluffball, Alex and his friend whose name I don't remember, it was fabulous, we had labels and a guy sitting behind us was snoring all the way through the film, last past not so fabulous but worth mentioning. Before then there was a too short [livejournal.com profile] ou3fs meeting, there was a lot of squeeing and good ice cream and I went all shy and quiet which is very unlike me but never mind now.

I went to the Freshers fair and joined *everything* including the Harry Potter society, even if the people there were not very nice at all.

I also had a Toga Bop, which was really fun, everyone made an effort and afterwards we all went in our sheets to get a kebab outside Univ to the surprise of random passers by. I spend an hour thrying to make a borrowed sheet that turned out to be a curtain resemble a Toga and it did for about five minutes before starting to fall apart.

Today my parents visited and it was really strange seeing them, as everything here is like a completely different world, and mixing it all with the world outside is freaky. They did bring me a mini fridge though which makes me extremely happy.

The food here is atrocious, at Formal Hall today the vegeterian option was half an onion. There was a JCR meeting and half my friends became a rep for something or other, I hope the three food  reps succeed in reducing the amount of mushrooms and pepper in every single meal we have.

I am in love
katia: (laughter)
Good Morning people! I resisted getting up, but it appears faith is against me. Went out yesterday to Park End, it was insane but in a good way, luckily I didn't drink much so no hangover or anything, the downside to that is that I lack an excuse for my behaviour. Yesterday was not as horribly hectic, however it was better and I like people more, or I like more people at least.

This morning, [livejournal.com profile] deianra called me at half seven, which was nice and if it was only that I wouldn't have bothered mentioning it, however later on as soon as I fell asleep there was a fire alarm!! I don't even know if it was a drill or not, but I think that it wasn't, I did dress in like two seconds, but most people hadn't and there was someone in a towel. Then I went to bed again only to hear lovely drills and other building noises. So yeah Good Morning to me... And to think that I have a free morning, sinse the being online right now.

Missed breakfast, hungry now.

I feel like I have been away for the longest time, it is strange to think that in the real world it's only been a couple of days. However I do feel so disconeceted from fandom, though I have a couple of fics that need to be posted. I think I will create a filter and annoy only the few of you who are interested in the whole university experience. :D
katia: (Autumn)
I have the headache of doom and I need to finish packing, for it is fairly late and for reasons unknown I told my college that I will get there tomorrow at 10am, we were given till 4pm...

There are boxes and suitcases and stuff everywhere, but at least a substantial part of my floor is visible now. Which is good, only my bed isn't.

I am going to Oxford tomorrow and will be all grown up and independent and stuff, unless I die from lack of food or an unknown cause. Either is a possibility.

Obviously I survived Nottingham and that was one crazy day I don't want to talk about, though some parts were certainly fun, it is a lovely city and university and my friend's flat mates were very cool. One even made me dinner because she felt sorry for me, I had been eating a 7p can of spaghetti, truly a student lifestyle. One of her roommates turned 18 on Saturday which we only found out then and went to buy her a cake, when we came back she had her friends there and two more cakes. Hee, that was amusing. They even managed to sneak me in at the union bar and it was suprisingly nice there.

Will resume packing once again, I didn't even know I had so much stuff!

See you on the other side, I was hopeful of instant internet access, but [livejournal.com profile] anna_bonita was doubtful and scared me, not sure now.
katia: (Hermione failing!)

My mum's birthday is today, so I have been fairly busy and yet I someow found the time for the 12 characters meme because it amused me when I read other people's and I wanted to have a go.

I did only one fandom because I totally didn't read the instruction, however the results still made me laugh and quite a few plot bunnies were born...


1. Severus Snape

2. Hermione Granger

3. Harry Potter

4. Luna Lovegood

5. Narcissa Malfoy

6. Remus Lupin

7. Voldemort

8. Draco Malfoy

9. Pansy Parkinson

10. Percy Weasley

11. Horace Slughorn

12. Sirius Black


The answers )

Also my recent discovery that the OUSU is sending everyone Freshers' Packs with information about ordering gowns etc has made me worry an awful lot because I haven't got mine yet. Do you all have yours? Could that mean that my confirmation hasn't arrived. I think I'd die if it got lost on the way. I am not sure what to do, whether to wait or call them and ask which is quite pathetic but it would suck so much if they thought that I haven't confirmed my place. Or maybe it was the pack that got lost, or even the simpler comclusion that it has not arrived yet and that it will. *worryworry* :(

katia: (love cubes)

OA is for Oxford.

Four A's, wow did not expect that.

Off to celebrate, be back very much later.

Love to all.

katia: (Oxford!)

*feeble wave*

Man, I'm terrified.

Before starting this post I thought of what I was going to say and I was going to say a lot of things, but right now not only I can't remember them but also they don't really matter. Tomorrow there will be plenty of time for words if I am inclined to write them but right now I can't quite do it.

Things are awkward and unsure, I don't even know what time to be at the school tomorrow, some people have told me half eight, some half ten, the logical conclusion is between half eight and half ten but I could be wrong and in that case there weill be two excruciatingly difficult hours.

I hate waiting, it is almost worse than the results, because of the hope. I guess after months of waiting we will get to that end.

A bit late for luck at this stage, nonetheless Good Luck and I hope you all have a reason to celebrate tomorrow.

OMG, I received a reading list from Oxford this morning. Wah. It is long and scary and basically told me that even if I have A levels in Maths and Economics I still don't know anything at all, it was mocking me I think. Had the sudden urge to have chosen English, no doubt the English Reading Lists have novels and fun things to read and not. "Knowledge: Readings in Contemporary Epistemology" Then I had a huge panic attack about getting into Oxford and *then* failing, which was incredibly stupid as I might not get in at all. And right now am not feeling all that hopeful. Don't know anything about Philosophy, can someone please tell me what Epistemology means?

In other, better news if you hate the stipid/horrible/arghhh Crazy frog, here is a game you might enjoy. Hehe, it is fun *shoots*

ETA! *93* *WINS* :D

My Stats book is so violent, half of the questions are about accidents, in one question *35* children were fatally electrocuted and I had to test whether there was need for new safety precautions. WTF? I say to that!
