I am going to try to make this post short despite how much I'm packing in!

Friday: Got the two questions in the exam I needed! Went all jazzed up: fave dress, shiny leggings, rainbow legwarmers. Celebrated outside the exam hall, snuggled with Jojo and met Leile. Waited for Hayls. Mojo's with Hayls and her chem friends. Off to May's for pre-drinks. Bella Italia with 50% coupon. Back to May's for more drinking. Deep chats with her and her BFF Lisa. Crashed on May's floor.

Saturday: Home for a little bit, Mark and his friend Zoe came around for salads, off to Nick's for predrinks and chocolates. Met a cute girl with dreadlocks named Nat but she had a boyfriend. Off to the Granby for much dancing - the older lesbians had a ball pointing and laughing with (really) us. Food with Mark & Zoe, then crashing when they headed off.

Sunday: Woke up, got ready super quickly and into town for Gay Choir. For once I sang high soprano - woot for a confidence boost leading to new experiences! Pub with the choir and then Chris/Charlie from mediation society. Experienced Wynford Arms (other gay place in town) with Eve. Back to hers for films and fun. Crashed on her couch.

Monday: Into campus with Eve for Women's Campaign meeting. I am Vice President. Collected my skirt from Vagina Monologues. Met with Meaghan of RUSU. Hung around a bit. Off home for some relaxation. Off to Hayl's friend Louise's for a bbq - great fun! Met another Amanda Palmer fan. Back home for cleaning, geeking and relaxation.

Tuesday: Cleaning. Met Hayls on Wokingham for sandwiches. Back here for watching Grey's Anatomy finale. I threw my teddy bear at the screen/Arizona, but then forgave her again. We did a lot of screaming and I hid my laughter. Watched Cougar Town while eating ice cream. Had a few chats and she went home.

Have been relaxing, doing my laundry and getting back into the swing of life since. Have a meeting with my supervisor on Tuesday about the direction of my literature review. Which means I really need to start doing some reading and choosing some things I'd like to extend on! I am ridiculously frightened. But I can do this. Yes yes yes I can. Somehow. Dissertation - it's not THAT scary a word...sorta kinda... Hides under bed to come out later...

That's where I am! Made the deal that if I deal with my drying laundry, knock a few things off my To Do List (this post included) and set up my Goethe/dissertation stuff I can take a nap. Skyping with light_cascades later tonight, so I can look forward to that!

Being an 'adult' is weird.

I am! Thank you. (: So relieved to have exams be over, even if it means starting my dissertation! I'm going home so soon! It's exciting!

wowza. You have been a busy busy girl!! All sounds very fun for the most part though :)

Good luck on you meeting with you supervisor! I'm sure it will go well!

ps- were you in the vagina monologues? I have yet to see that still. A lot of my friends have been in it though, and i've allllways wanted to see it!

and yes! being an adult is SOOOOO weird. Most days i just feel like a 5 year old playing dress up.

Definitely have been a busy girl. :P Has been a blast! Thank you - meeting with him at 2.30 today, nervous! I'm sure it'll go well too.

I was in Vagina Monologues. C: It was great fun! I actually had never seen it before I performed in it, to be honest. :P

I always feel like a 6 year old playing dress up. :P And really I kind of am, especially in that I often dress as a 6 year old would. :B

I like being an adult.. most of the time.. although I have a kid trapped inside :P
Kiwi Crocuscranky__crocus on June 1st, 2010 11:58 am (UTC)
I like being an adult as well. (: I certainly have a kid inside, though - not trapped thankfully! Free to do as she pleases, under supervision. :P

Yeah, the way you put it is better, my kid isn't trapped either ;)

Kiwi, just spell it "dessertation" and that'll make it much less scary. Though, then you might dream about gigantic sundaes comeing to freeze you and chocolate cakes with mouths and blood (raspberry sauce) squirting from between their frosted lips...

Or what about Dessertelation?
Kiwi Crocuscranky__crocus on June 1st, 2010 11:59 am (UTC)
Dessertelation sounds like a failed attempt with my cooking again. :P But I do like that dissertation starts with 'diss' - I feel like I'm dissing it each time I say it. (:

You should pair thinking of the d(i/e)ssertation with dessert. Dessertation meeting = sweet things, reading about dessertation = sweet things, etc. I can help if you want. It'll be your own little counter conditioning experiment!
Kiwi Crocuscranky__crocus on June 2nd, 2010 07:05 pm (UTC)
My life does not seem to enjoy pairing things it finds pleasurable with things that it finds dreadful - it often manages to degrade the previously pleasurable thing. Quite sad! So I think I'll remain like a proper third-year uni student and, with all my third-year friends, grumble endlessly about how dreadful the dissertation is and how it will clearly end our lives. :P

Mouth waters.
