So, being the utter genius
that I am, I managed to injure my arm in aikido today when stretching my legs. Yeahhhh. Honestly, even I am surprised by my own level of fail sometimes. I've also got a presentaiton tomorrow that I'm not ready for at all, but eh, it's not actually graded, so I guess I won't worry too much. It's for the one course this semester that I'm actually enjoying
, so I feel obliged to try a bit. On a completely unrelated note, but I've been meaning to link to it for several days now: I must say that this Penny Arcade comic
is a thing of great truth, if not beauty. I'm pretty sure we must have the same ISP.
One thing I forgot to mention about when I went to see the Wolverine movie - I went to Doncaster, and oh my god their Borders shits all over the Melbourne Central and the Lygon Street stores in terms of manga. Their selection is beautiful
. Must return there when I have, you know, money
. (Being a disaffected child of the 90s, the comparative content of shopping malls is clearly a key issue.) I also want to pick up Resident Evil 5
sometime, perhaps as a reward for finishing one of the essays that haunt my waking hours. I was put off initially by the whole partner system, given the trouble I have making my 360 connect to Live, but apparently the swine flu fiasco has brought out the zombie-killer in me.
Still attempting to prettify my Dreamwidth, which this is being cross-posted to. Will at some point brave the headache that is old!Photoshop in an effort to construct a header, since Dreamwidth does sadly lack in a diverse range of appealing layouts. My glee at having found this one pretty layout on a graphics journal was somewhat marred by realising the sheer volume of others who had also found it. One thing LJ has going for it is definitely the sheer quantity of pre-made layouts, even if they're not all quality. Also speaking of Dreamwidth - crossposting. I've heard there are clients you can use, and uh I would appreciate advice from flist on what's best and easiest to use. ^_^;;
I'm going to try and undertake a project of updating this thing every day for a week. I was reading through some of my old (high school era) LJ entries, and I was struck by how much
I used to update. Granted, this was due to not having any sort of life, but just looking back reminded me of so many (good and bad) things that I'd completely forgotten. And idk, maybe in another three years I'll be thinking "gosh, what was I doing in uni again instead of studying?", and it'd be nice to be able to read back and find a detailed account of "oh yeah, I was playing video games and reading fanfiction".
