Did well on the posting, didn't I? Doh! (Thanks for the comments btw *hugs*)

Going to try again, as I'm missing my online life.
I guess it's great that 'real' life is keeping me busy, but the online world is very important to me and probably one of the most constant things I have, so I shouldn't neglect it so woefully.

Still have my job, despite several redundancies in the company. :(
Renting a new apartment - living on my own for the first time ever and loving it in terms of not being irritated by other people and having space that is definitely my own.
Havn't drawn anything in ages and need to relocate my sketchbook.
Need to sleep less and exercise more.
Have been reading friend's page regularly and would be lost without you all (and am missing people who also haven't posted in ages).

:)

I am still here... reading all your updates religiously and not commenting because I'm useless at communicating.

I want to get back to posting (and not only to whinge) so I'm going to try.

I need to get up to date with everything that's been happening, but for now, suffice it to say I'm still in Leicester, doing a cool job that I am constantly thankful for, going through hell over my accommodation as my landlord has not been paying the mortgage on my apartment and is completely insane.

I am very dubious about the new Doctor Who, adoring the new series of QI and back into WoW.

Now I shall return to reading my friends page, in order to preserve my sanity and my faith in the human race.

I still don't properly have the internet. I've just moved into my apartment with no door to my room, wahey. And I'm paying an exortianate amount to BT for 90 minutes online. Once again I'm feeling shit because I can't cope with change. I don't even feel that I can curl up in bed because it's a weird bed and despite the landlord's claims, I'm not convinced the bedding is that clean. Ughhhh, so bloody homesick. And I want my broadband back!!

July  
I left Lincoln yesterday and I'm back at my parents', surrounded by boxes and bags of stuff that I should probably get rid of.

Managed to pull together my degree show and was even happy with part of it (not the other part and I keep going over how much better it could have been if I'd worked harder).

Feeling very disillusioned with myself and my potential and questioning the futility of my ambitions. Maybe it's time to stop daydreaming and develop something resembling a life. :/

My body cannot cope with pollen, which is fun and sneezy.

Have an interview tomorrow which I maybe should be excited about, except I don't think there's actually a position available and they're just seeing me to get me to stop phoning and emailing all the time. But I'll know more about that in about 14 hours.

Despite appearances to the contrary, things are pretty ok at the moment, got things to look forward too as well. Obviously just in a whingey mood.

Wow, I'm out of practice... one glass of wine and everything;s going numb. But at least it's making me feel warm in this big cold house.

Keep meaning to update properly but I'm being crap at the moment. Sleeping more than being awake and having twisted dreams. Whee alcohol! :p

Before it goes to a charity shop (which I think would be rather pointless in the UK)...

I have a brand new copy of Spiderman 2 on DVD for Region 1. It's a 2 disc special edition and while I would absolutely love to watch it, I have no way of playing region 1 DVDs. So I would like it to go to someone who can watch it.

If you'd like it, leave a comment and I'll email for your address. Don't worry about p&p.

If no one responds in about a week, I guess it'll have to go to a charity shop, but I would rather it didn't because I'm sure some unsuspecting person would not realise it's the wrong region! :(

So I have just discovered the best way to get me out of bed is to threaten me with the presence of a spider in my room. Stupid irrational fear it may be, but it woke me up.

I may have to do this bullet point form in order to attempt to achieve coherency.

- I have recently discovered that the couple in the room next door to me own a lizard of some description that they feed live insects to. I made this discovery by encountering an escapee black cricket on the stairs in the middle of the night. That little incident provoked some phobia-related hysteria, joy.

- New Doctor Who: I adore Donna Noble. It's annoying that bits of Catherine Tate's characters seem to slip in from time to time, but besides that, she's quite wonderful. I am getting a bit sick of the poorly devised plots - perhaps they should rename the show, "Sonic Screwdrivers will get you out of any problem you can imagine!!!11!!" Still enjoying it though.

- Uni work is going very slowly. I have 2 weeks left to get everything done and it's not looking too hopeful at the moment. It doesn't help that I keep having nightmares about failing. We're in the process of constructing our show at the moment. I will be heading into the studio shortly to paint my boards, which I am looking forward to. If all else fails, I will have empty boards that look good!

- I am running low on chocolate supplies. :(

- My Haribo supplies have recently been repleted. :)

- In TMI news, after 10 years of having a disgusting toenail, it is finally getting treated. Hopefully in 6 months, I will have a normal toenail again. (10 years ago, at school, during a game of netball, someone jumped on my toe. The thing swelled up in a bruise, with a lot of pressure beneath the nail. A few weeks later, the nail came off and at that time contracted some kind of infection.) Yes, it's taken me this long to sort it out. Mind you, I have had more pressing health problems, such as madness.

- I am spending far too much money at the moment. It's all going on paint, business cards, vinyl lettering... I havn't even thought about how I'm going to get my work printed and mounted, but I know that will be hideously expensive.

- I really need to update my portfolio website.

- Dear Radio 1: It's just Maidstone. Capital of chavs and generally a grotty place. Get over it. Ugh.

Better get ready to go do some painting. I also need to go extract cash from a hole in the wall. Wish me luck with completing my work and avoiding a complete breakdown!!!
