So. It's been a while. Over a year, in fact. I think I shall return to the world of LJ for a bit. I could do with a blog. I use facebook a lot these days, but I'm limited by how long a status I can post, and sometimes you just wanna rant or talk about something in a bit more depth. I'll probably so a review of how life is once I graduate, but for now let's start with a relatively short post.

I'm having yet another day when my motivation is running low. This was supposed to be a productive day, but I've been distracted by watching Scrubs and generally doing very little else. Once an episode ends I ask myself "shall I do some work now...or just watch another episode. After all, it's only 20-odd minutes, right? I have one or two assignments left. I say one or two, because one is a 2,500 word report, while the other is a related 1,000 word press release. So it's kinda of one task, except it's really two. I've got some time to do it, so the pressure isn't on yet. It's not due 'til the 23rd, but that's no excuse for not getting started now. Must make myself read some studies. I think I shall try again for real tomorrow. If I set myself a few goals for the rest of today then I don't feel so bad being lazy and doing the real work tomorrow. And if I write it down here, then I have to do it, right?

1. Read two articles - I know which I want to read next.
2. Sort through the 20 or so tabs that I opened following a Google scholar search. Save relevant things.

I think my problem with motivation stems from how close I am to finishing my degree. It's a bit of an anticlimax. It's just another report. The I'm done. Fingers crossed I get a 1st class degree not a 2:1, but as I'm destined for unemployment and failure it doesn't really matter either way. Once this report is done on the 23rd May, I have one week and a couple days to pack and decide whether to stay 'til my lease is up, or just move in with Chris, the boyfriend. I'm torn between wanting to spend as much time as I can in the flat with my flatmates, and just moving in with Chris. Will have to see what everyone else is doing/when they're leaving.

It's my birthday this weekend. Eep! I always look forward to it, even though I'm all grown up now and it's not a big deal. 23. Wow. And I have no clue what I want to do with my life. Apart from settle down with Chris. As much as I love him and know that he loves me, I still am a little worried that we'll eventually break up. It's a rational worry though, after all, no one knows what will happen. People change. Move in different directions. Fall out of love. Right now though, I'm content with the knowledge that someone loves me, really loves me. No matter how scary and rubbish my life gets, being in love is a wonderful thing.

Right. It's after 5pm. Better get started on that to do list.

It's nothing personal but I'm a bit fed up with LJ, and with my life. I've removed practically everyone, not because I don't think you're all nice people who's LJ I like to read, but because...I dunno, I need to reject everyone right now. It's what I do. I came this close to just deleting my whole friends list and making this journal private, but I didn't, I'm not sure why. I'm done with everyone for now, I'm focuing on myself for a bit til I can sort my head out a little. Good luck to you all, will miss you.

Why is that when it's late at night the radiator doesn't come on, yet when we finally have some sunshine it does come on? *fans self*

My room looks like a Tesco store vomited over it, lol. Tesco Direct just arrived and I have bags of food all over my bed and my floor. I should try and find places to store it. I spent about £150 stocking up on soya milk, tofu, cans of tomatoes, beans, tinned conveniance food, salsa, onions, fruit juice and other random jars of things. Hopefully I won't need to go shoppig for a while and I may save some money. Where do I put all this though?! Right. I need to clear up as much space under my bed as possible and put some stuff there.

Also, I really want to buy a gorgeous top I saw on ebay. There about three similar ones to choose from and I can't decide if I'll look ridiculous in all of them. They're also expensive. £30 a top, for something made of polyester. I haven't found anything that looks this flattering though, so I'm very tempted to get one. I also so some wrap around trousers for £20 which looks comfty, but they're also quite expensive for what you're getting. Plus postage and packaging for all these things.

Help me decide?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=170193522864&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=007 (This one goes in four hours and though it doesn't have as much detail I like that it's black so I could wear it with most things.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=170194426256&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=007 (It looks black, but is sadly dark brown. I think it would still look awesome though.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=170194449749&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=007 (Or red? It's not a very dark red though, and I'm not sure if I'm daring enough.)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360024587320&ssPageName=ADME:B:BOCOR:UK:1 Do I want this item for £12.50? For a top it's not too badly priced, it's cotton, and I like it, although I don't love it.

Here's the trousers: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=200199632259&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=010#ebayphotohosting (Quite daring, but they look comfty)

I've had a quick f-list tidy up, deleted a few people who rarely comment and whose journal I rarely comment on in return. It's only a few people. Satu, no offense but I don't feel comfortable with you reading my LJ anymore. I don't need any helpful suggestions.

Yesterda was crazy, the train directly to Stirling had to stop at Edinburgh due to weather problems, so I had to get a train to Stirling. We then got kicked off at Larbert, or whatever the name was, and had to wait around for about 20 mins til we eventually got on another train to Stirling. I was three hours later in Stirling than I was supposed to be and very tired. I had a good night though. I had some pizza, and spent most of the evening and night hanging out with Lynn and her friend Jenny. They were staying here a couple days and they went home today. We played some table tennis and pool. It was really funny since I'm terrible at pool so I lost very badly, hehe.

Today I was woken up by Sarah and Jacqui knocking on my door. We chatted and listened to music for about an hour, which was fun. They're nice, and I think these next few weeks will be fine if I hang out with them a few times. I think I'd go a little insane being completely by myself for more than two weeks. I'm going over sometme later this evening for a few drinks. It might be fun. I'm a little nervous though since Chris, their other friend, will be there. He's nice and all, but I don't think he likes me all that much, so I feel a little awkward and shy around him.

I better go, I think I might tidy my room a little and find something nice to wear, these clothes could do with a wash.
