My first full-force 'happy dance' of post-studenthood was over the installation of a new shower. (FINALLY!)

I feel I am taking this 'adulthood' thing fine thus far. The nap may have helped.

Does anyone have any colouring books? I have this ridiculous itch for colouring in a colouring book.

So far postschool feels a lot like preschool.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT?! This time around, I'm going to pass preschool-postschool. I will be a preschool flunkee no more!

Back to writing and procrastinating on cleaning my room.

(The more things change, the more they...)

Ack! Sudden realisation! Going to have to clean the bathroom, after the whole shower-splosion scenario, before I actually take a shower. Maybe someone else will shower before me. *Respectable adult.* So much boy-ness that I don't want to clean up...

I remember there being a Snupin activity book at some point, with colouring in pages. You oculd probably find a copy of it at Lupin_snape and download the artworks to colour. Maybe someone should organise a similar funbook for femslash...

FEMSLASH COLOURING BOOK?! I am so down for this! Must find a way to make it happen... I suppose I could find femslash artists of a number of ships and ask if they have lineart versions of their work for potential colouring-book activities. Oooer.

You, my friend, are a genius!
woldy: Femmeslashwoldy on May 20th, 2011 07:35 pm (UTC)
I think that's exactly how you go about it! Maybe start by emailing artists to ask if they'd allow permission for a work or two to be in a femslash colouring book, then choose a bunch of artworks to include and ask for the lineart, then put them together into a PDF, promote and distribute it on the interwebs. A keen coordinator is all that would be needed, I think, and I'd LOVE to see a femslash colouring book.

I'm not sure how to put things together into a PDF or how to be a keen coordinator, but I can try my best! Thank you for the idea! :D

Doing it for the 2011 Day of Femslash would also be perfect. It would also force me to start soon! (:

Also, I've just got thinking about the 2011 International Day of Femslash on July 16th. If you decided to put together a HP femslash colouring book then IFD would be a great time to release it!

Congratulations on reaching "postschool" alive and dancing!

;-) Yes, shower-installation/repair means bathroom-cleaning....same everywhere....and I doubt the others can do it better than you.... Kelly always mentions she gets the best plots for her stories while she is cleaning ;-)

Thank you! And glad to hear I'm not the only one who happy-dances over shower installation. I can't wait to have a peaceful shower with lots of embarrassing singing into my loofa-poofa-thing.

Kelly can get plotbunnies cleaning bathrooms? Wow. Also, braver woman than I. Though I recall she isn't living with 6 men. When I lived with 4 other women, cleaning the bathroom didn't feel like such a chore... :Þ

Congratulations on living through it!

Sorry about the ick in the bathroom, but that won't be much longer either. Wear gloves...

Congratulations! Celebration time.

This is Numfar's dance of joy:


And some others:



Just 'cos it wouldn't be me without her:


All done with school must feel pretty awesome :)

PS. Now you're done, let me know if and when you wanna head up to good old Arkansas of England and we'll work it out. My last exam is May 31, and I'm in London for Hanson June 6-10, but any other time I'll be free (there's a end of year American Studies ball June 11 that I'm going to, but you'd be totally welcome to come too if that was when you wanted to come.) :)

Oh my goodness you are my favourite. Thank you for the fantastic gifs! :D

Do you know how much tickets cost to get from around London to where you are? I really, really want to go but my funding is kind of low, so I've got to budget something together or I'll end up with not enough for living. I suppose I can look it up soon - that'd be sensible. You're probably in London - or soon to be in London - right now! :B

Ack at looking at my bank account. D: Yeah, at the moment I'm sweating food costs so I'll have to get back to you! :X

I know you can get the bus from London Victoria to Norwich for around £4 with National Express; less if you're willing to go with Megabus, but it's not really worth it except that Megabus comes right to the UEA campus and National Express only go to the city center. Trains are a lot more expensive. I can't remember what they were to book in advance, but last weekend I paid £45.70 on the day for a return from Norwich to London.

I'm off to London tomorrow to stay with my awesome journalist cousin who has all the juicy celebrity secrets and for HANSON! Yay!

No worries. If you can't do it, you can't do it :) We'll work something out for the next time I'm sort of vaguely in the right part of the US :P I don't need much notice even.

Hmmm. Getting to London Victoria may not be too bad. And Megabus straight to UEA campus would probably be good; less walking/moving around is often worth losing quality for me.

I think I'll be biting the bullet soon and asking my mother if she can wire me £120 more, so I feel safer in knowing I'll have enough. I've never asked for extra money before so hopefully the fact that it's my final time here will make it alright.

Have fun seeing Hanson! :D

And either way, we'll have to sort something out for the next time you're sort of vaguely in the right part of the US. Especially since I love exploring the US too. (:
Rachelilovecsr on June 6th, 2011 08:04 pm (UTC)
Well honestly, I'm going to be living about equidistant from campus and town for the summer, so we'd probably need to get a bus from one or the other anyway. Megabus just goes as low as £1 and if you're likely to want to spend time on campus (which is fun), that way you'd only need to get the bus once.

I'm sure it'll be fine. I've had to ask for money more than once in my accumulated years of university and I always feel bad about it, but it's never been something my Mom has had too much of a problem with as long as she knows I've been at least trying to make money last. If this is the first time, she'll probably be okay with it :)

Yes, yes we will. Exploring of the US is always a good thing. :D

Congratulations on the finished exams! Post-studenthood is a lovely state, and it can last a lifetime.

Your icon is darling. Thank you for the comment!

Post-studenthood is a lovely state, and it can last a lifetime.
Part of me hopes it will; part of me hopes it won't. We'll see, I suppose - no hurry either way! I'm wondering what side of the desk I'll end up on at the end, really.

(But as long as I'm done with my head hitting the top of it for a while, I'm good! :D )

Does anyone have any colouring books?

I was always taught that being an adult did not necessitate being a grown-up.

I stick by my conviction!
