Watchers

Currently immensely distracted from everything by everything. *sigh* I'm fed up of stuff for uni, stuff for home, stuff for my writing, games I'm playing, books I'm reading, and I really don't know why. I wish I'd get over it, though, because it's a bloody nuisance. Pretty much the only things I can be completely focused on at the moment are dance and Old English. I want to be able to be so focused on everything else I'm doing, too...I just can't seem to figure out how to go about it. I'm just apathetic about so many things right now, and if I have trouble it seems so much easier to just give up rather than work at it. Gaaah.

There's a couple of big things going on at the moment in my life. The first is that I passed grade 7 ballet with distinction, which I'm kind of astounded at, but also incredibly pleased. Secondly, at uni I have to decide on my subject for my dissertation next year and do a survey of recent critical material on my topic...on the one hand, it's pretty interesting, but on the other it's a lot of work and it's starting to drive me slightly nuts. A couple of my friends are having a hard time with their topics and they understandably complain about it a bit, but I've got so fed up with everything I feel kind of irritated from even hearing a little bit about their problems. Which is totally stupid, because that's just being unpleasant and unsupportive, and I really don't want to be like that with them. Aaagh.

Lastly, I'm working on some fanfiction for the first time in absolutely ages. At first it was great to be writing again, and things were coming along slowly and surely, but I keep getting blocked by really simple things now I've got the whole thing plotted out, and I keep thinking the narrative voice fluctuates a lot even though it doesn't and getting paranoid about it. It's pretty frustrating.

Hopefully I'll be out of this slump soon.

Happy Birthday Ria. Hope you have lot's of fun and presents today. :D

How have you been, m'lady? I sorely missed ya after the last summer. Hope you were doing fine. I was too occupied with uni stuff, as it is hectic these days. I didn't know you were still around dA, due to this. And I wasn't seeing you online on Skype, so I kind of got distracted from all this. I am trully sorry for not showing signs of life more often. :(

Hope you are having fun today and as always, enjoy your non-lying cake! XD

Aww, Labou, thank you very much!

I've been alright, Lab. Things haven't always been great - mum's not been feeling great for a while because of illness and the divorce and stuff, and uni is...well, I'm in my last year of my undergraduate degree now, and it's a lot of work. I'm afraid my laptop died, and I'm currently using my mum's, which doesn't have skype compatibility. I may be getting a new laptop shortly, though, so...you may see me around on skype in a while. Maybe. :XD:

Thank you again, Labou, I've had a pretty great day, all things considered, and my cake was excellent. And teacup shaped. :)

Aaaah, teacup. Once a brit lady, always a brit lady! XD

I am glad to hear you have been doing well, Ria. I am sorry for your mother and I fully hope you andher pull through this. :)

As for uni, it's always uni and we both agree that it sucks. So hang in there. XD

Ah, I knew it was something with your comp that kept you away from skype. I do remember you telling me you had troubles with it, and you have my total and literall sympathy on the matter, for obvious reasons. XD

Glad you enjoyed your b-day and I can't wait to get back to talking with ya on skype. :)

PS: Do you have a 3DS, by any chance?

Thank you, Labou. Things haven't been the easiest, but we're doing our best.

Ah, I do! My friend code is 2337-4283-1222. :)
