My journal is semi-friends only because while I like to keep certain aspects of my personal life private, and for my friends' eyes only, I figure there's no harm in keeping fandom-related things and other random stuff unlocked for whoever wants to read it. Maybe it'll give people a better idea of what I'm like.

If you'd like to friend me and vice versa, then please comment here! Let me know who you are, how you found my journal, if we know each other, etc. I don't want to add randoms, or have randoms add me, just for the sake of it.

So...my inadvertent hiatus ended up being A LOT longer than I'd thought it would be. Believe me when I say I didn't intend to be away for this long! At least last time I had an excuse. I can't really explain why I disappeared off the face of LJ for the past few months, except by saying I just lost the time to post, and then following on from that, I seriously lost the will to post, and suddenly it just became easier to not be here at all. Not that I haven't wanted to recently - the few of you that I've talked to outside of LJ know that I was going to come back, I was just trying to work up the effort to. It was a lot harder to return than it was to leave.

As for why I decided that now specifically was a good time to post again? I don't even know! I was just sitting here about to go to bed, and was hit by the thought that I could post a little something, even just to say hello and "hey, I'm not dead, don't worry!" So, that's about it really. I'm going to start posting regularly again, since I miss the hell out of you guys and this place! But mainly you lot ;-). I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone, if you'll still have me, haha. Hopefully catch you soon! ♥

- My friend/workmate Shelly got engaged on Sunday!!! I actually know her boyfriend too, he's kind of a casual friend, but he's pretty cool, and I am SO stupidly happy and excited for them :-D. They've been together for a couple of years now, and because Shaun's visa runs out in a couple of months, Shelly was planning on moving to Australia to be with him later on this year - marriage would eventually be on the cards, though never this soon, but it just kinda happened anyway, and I couldn't think of a better couple for it to happen to. YAAAAAAY!!! It's their engagement party tomorrow night, and luckily I've managed to swap my 1-10 shift for an open, so I'll be able to go along earlier, woo-hoo!

- Work actually hired ELEVEN new people this week, and they're all getting inducted next Wednesday. It's going to be mental trying to train them all - 11!!! But we need more people for over Easter, so hopefully it'll work out for the best, especially if it means we'll have extra staff for the craziness of the holidays. I might have to help with the training, which I'm not looking forward to, haha, but we'll see what happens. I just can't get over the fact there's this many all starting at the same time, hectic doesn't even cover it.

- I changed my availability at work last week too, and told Gosia (the manager who does the rota), that I could work Fridays and Tuesdays aswell as my normal weekends, since I'm not at uni then, so of course she gave me hours to cover all the days starting from the new week, which was today, haha. It's fine though, I only have two more essays due for uni, so I should be able to balance those with working, and after they're done, I'll work more anyway, since I can always use the money. I did a fair bit of shopping this week so spent a bit more than I intended :-S. But I have pretty clothes, it's worth it! I think...Anyway, as for uni itself, I've been really bad and lazy with going to class lately. But because I'm in so little, it's just really easy to think all the effort in going in isn't worth it, and that I'm better off just being at home. I dunno, I only have a couple of weeks left of this semester anyway, so I'm going to try and be good with going, I might since there's not long to go!

- It was Ali's birthday yesterday, but she wasn't doing much except just having people over in the evening, chilling and ordering food, so I baked for her during the day. I made double chocolate brownies, cookies, biscuits, and lemon and orange fondant sweeties, and I have to say, it was all pretty damn good! ;-) I'm in the mood to bake some more, I need to start with the learning how to cook somewhere, haha. Maybe this'll encourage me.

- Mumford & Sons are amazing ♥ Is anyone else into them? I got the album recently and I love it, their music is just so pretty and calm and happy-making, it's just lovely! I can't stop listening to Dust Bowl Dance and The Cave especially, they're such gorgeous songs. This band is definitely recommended for anyone who likes folksy/chilled guitar sort of music!

I think that's about it, I just wanted to do a quick post since it'd been a few days, and with the busy-ness of this weekend, I wasn't sure when I'd be able to get on and post again. Hopefully catch youse soon, have a good weekend! ♥

Is it just me or has this show gotten really shit this season? I mean, it was never brilliant tv, but it was usually quite enjoyable and bearable, but I don't know, I'm not feeling it at all right now, and I haven't been for a while. I just watched the latest episode and I'm fairly disgruntled, hence this post.

excuse me while I air my grievancesCollapse )

Do you suffer from occasional or frequent insomnia? Do you have any special tricks or remedies? How does it impact your life?

I've actually been lucky in that I've not suffered from insomnia in a little while now - more like sleepless nights where I purposely stay up due to uni work and other circumstances - but there was a period in my life a couple of years ago when I went through frequent bouts of insomnia. My sleeping is pretty messed up in general, to be honest, and has been since I started uni; I had a lot of nights where I just couldn't fall asleep, even when I was really tired. I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I was overthinking things, so getting up and being sort of productive usually helped, even if it was by just making a list of things I wanted to get done, or if it was writing a lengthy entry in my diary. I think being active helps in tiring you out a bit more, as I'd normally be able to fall asleep after that. As for how it impacts my life? Well, it just makes me super-tired, cranky and completely lacking energy, haha.

How would you describe your life so far in a six-word sentence? How often would your 'life sentence' change?

Wasted time with too many regrets. I don't think that sentence is liable to change too often, just because I'm a really bad procrastinator, and despite good intentions I tend to waste a lot more time than I'd like, and I find it hard to sometimes let go of the past, and live without regrets. Maybe there are a few sentences I'd use, but this one seems the most relevant.

Leave a comment saying "COMMENT" and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.

I asked blood_ecstasy, and she gave me Supernatural, Dark Angel, Reading, Picture Of The Day and Family.

what those words mean to meCollapse )

I don't know if I have many other V watchers on my list, but I'm going to do this post anyway, because I just finished catching up with it last night, and wanted to get my random thoughts out.

I remember when I first heard of the concept of the show, and saw the promos for it, I thought that it could easily sway between being quite good, or quite ridiculous, but I'm glad to say that it's actually pretty awesome! I've really, really enjoyed the 4 episodes that have aired so far, I'm quite looking forward to when the show returns at the end of the month. Especially with the way the last episode ended!

there is no normal anymoreCollapse )

Yeah, I'm very much enjoying this so far, and even though there's only been 4 episodes, I'm engaged already. I can't wait to watch more! If you're fans of sci-fi, this is definitely worth checking out.
