Almost October, once again ... I've been reading and thinking quite a bit about story theory and plotting (when time permits) and my fingers are itching to write. I'm so anxious I am even considering getting up early in November, to have some pre-lecture writing time - quite a notion for a notorious late riser such as myself.
Hopefully my good intentions will last longer this year than they did the last.

Spring sun, rolled-down car windows and Flogging Molly at earsplitting volume ... that's the stuff.

... I'd likely become a pyromaniac.
Incidentally, in case an ice age descends upon us or your heater stops working like ours did, here's a tip:
If you have a bunsen burner, you can burn the left-over paraffin wax after your tea warmer candle burns out. It's so much warmer than just the candle's flame, even if it doesn't last as long - and it's incredibly pretty, too.

Just make sure you have some kind of non-flammable pad underneath. Alternatively, learn to appreciate scorch marks on your desk.

It's 14 degrees downstairs (57° Fahrenheit, should any non-Celsiusian stumble across this blog) and despite seven candles, it feels only marginally warmer in my room. Our heater doesn't work ... and our landlady won't be back for almost two weeks. It's coooold.
Incidentally, if I ever start a revolution and found a people's republic, I won't be demanding hard-boiled eggs or reasonably priced love (though worthy goals, for sure).
Just, maybe, lots of candles? And blankets! For everyone!

So, the new Bachelor courses have been open for more than a year, and STILL they can't figure things out? The information on their website is presented badly and incomplete, and when you mail them, you get replies that are contradictory or just plain wrong.
I mean, I knew that universities are kind of disorganized and that there's hardly anyone to go to for answers, but honestly, this is ridiculous.
I'm amazed universities haven't collapsed in on themselves from being such a huge erratic mess ... it resembles PTerry's Unseen University more and more every day. Keep expecting to meet the Bursar and his Dried Frog Pills ...

Alright, here we go.
This is not my first time on livejournal, nor will this November be my first time nano-ing. It is, however, my first time to do both as an adult ... so, in the spirit of growing up and all that (boy, would Peter Pan have a lot to say about this ...) I'm making a fresh start.
Here's to a new - hopefully more coherent - beginning. =)
