Oh livejournal, I'm sorry and I miss you. A lot.

...has actually been really good. Idk if it's just the optimism but this year's actually been fairly awesome up to now. Saying that, I was completely and utterly taken aback by Oxbridge evening (it made me want to curl up into a ball and die.)

At any rate, my mock exams went pretty well, as far as mock exams go. My real exams (including my scholarship exam), on the other hand, went terribly. Yep. I have never walked out of a physics exam feeling that awful before. Oh well, all I can really do is wait for the results now.

I've been balancing my time better too - I've not been horribly overworked yet. (Yet.)

I have a small, niggling concern that I will be dead by next Monday, however. From Friday through to Sunday night is the David Clover Festival of Singing (for which I am thoroughly unprepared.) This isn't actually that much of a problem because I'm quite relaxed about the whole thing. (I'm not too worried about the performance part. OTL) My only real problem with the idea of David Clover is that fact that I need to have repertoire by memory (which I haven't done because I'm lazy and, as aforementioned, I'm not that bothered by the whole thing.) Ahh well, I'm sure it'll be fine.

And my programme (which isn't a recital programme, because I'm obviously not doing a recital.)

- Far from the Home I Love - Jerry Bock, Fiddler on the Roof.
- Marienw'urmchen - Schumann
- Everyone Sang - Ian Higginson

Yep. For anyone who I've not managed to bore to death, I hope you have a great evening.

Yes, I think I'll be making this particular meme a tradition. I quite like it anyway. So yes, now that the year's drawing to a close, I think it's time for small summary.

I've heard people say that 2010 has been a generally 'bad' year. I think that, for me, this year has been a year which has contained a lot of difficulties for us as a family, and certainly for us as a community. I can't however say that it's been all bad. I'd like to think that 2010 has been a year for struggle, but ultimately for growth. It's been a year where I've finally been able to sideline the excess somewhat and discover myself as a person, develop my friendships and become a lot happier, even with all the painful times. So (and I know I do this every year) I'd like to thank this last year for being a rollercoaster because it's filled me with optimism for the year to come. Bring on 2011.

So long 2010, and thanks for all the fish. ♥Collapse )

Yes, it's been a while and I promise that one of my new year's resolutions will be to post more.

I hope everyone had a marvellous Christmas! :D

Revision for the exams starts tomorrow. Or today, even. SLdkfjdflksd I don't really want to do it.

Oh, and I made it into the choir.

And I need to sort out Very_Cliche, which I haven't done in a while.

Omgah so twice a month seemingly went a bit wrong...anyway, happy November to anyone who may read his journal still. Since the last post I made, a substantial amount has happened. I went to Belgium and have decided that I want to live either in Bruges or I'n Lille, amg they're both so beautiful and cultured and classical and amazing. Also, I seem to have re-discovered a slight obsession for the poetry of Tennyson. (:

HI to any/everyone who is here via the friending meme. I'd like to say something like this journal is friends-only/semi-friends only, but it isn't really. Usually stories, poems and rants are f-locked but not always. (You can tell I'm organised.)


Furthermore, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANU-SAN<3 I LOVE YOU LOTS AND LOTS. I also hope you have a marvellous year. <3

Sometime in the next few months I'mma have a re-audition for the NYCGB which I may seem all flippant and apathetic towards but really I'm frightened. I'm frightened because I /want/ to get in so badly. I /want/ to be in the choir so much and I have this horrible feeling that I'm just not good enough and everyone seems to think it's because I'm not trying and I am trying dammit.

And I'm so sick I missed Jaz' party which really fucking sucks. |:

School is so not fun it's insane and I have such a temptation to binge on cake or something but I won't. This healthy eating thing has been working out particularly well so far.

I have scans and drabbles to post and I need to update very cliche.

Halfway through a book series, the first of which is called 'Gone.' They're not very good but I'm like...pedantic about finishing book series once I've started them.

Anyway, this ends my short update of the last month. >>

I can't believe it's August. I actually can't. Moreover I can't believe I've not POSTED anything since like...June. FAIL.

Anyway, this is the first post of my summer holidays. I could get used to this whole lack of activity thing. Actually, no, I can't. That's a downright lie. If there's one thing I've found out this holiday, it's that I'm hopelessly awful at relaxing. >> I've spent most of my time this holiday doing stuff, sometimes utterly pointless stuff, but stuff all the same. If there isn't activity, I seem to sort of wither, I think. It's kind of terrible.

Bleh, this does bring me to a point (for once.) I'm determined to improve myself art wise this holiday, so I've following the suggestion of my very good friend amatoralatus and drawing something (no matter how small) every day. It's kind of soul-destroying, but kind of entertaining at the same time. ^^ <3

Yes. I am going to post more. Even if it's irrelevant little things like this. I promise f-list, I will annoy the crap out of you by the time we reach September. ;)
