I'm done!!! True, I may have to do resits, but I do not care, exams are over for at least 6 months, and if I'm very very lucky, forever, and I am so so so happy I am done!!! *dances*

In celebration, I did lots of dishes, swept the kitchen floor, wiped down the surfaces, cleaned the bathroom - it is now sparkly - did ten million rounds of washing and hoovered the upstairs. And changed my sheets.

Tomorrow, I have work. Work will consist of cake (10.30 - 1pm), then Christmas lunch (1pm-5pm), then Christmas party (5pm - midnight). I am quite happy about this.

I have ten million fannish things to do, including my [livejournal.com profile] fire_fic, my [livejournal.com profile] yuletide fic (ZOMG, must re-watch source, I cannot remember any of it), and to start work on the faith-a-thon. Which should be swell. *glows*

No more exams!

I wish people would stop emailing/texting/phoning me to congratulate me on finishing my exams and saying how relieved I must be to have it all over and what am I doing for dinner?, because MY FINAL EXAM IS TOMORROW. Not last week. Check your goddamn cheerfulness at the door and let me study&stress why don't you!!!!

Also, whoever it is from my work who thinks that nagging me at home about stuff I could care less about when I'm in the middle of finals is acceptable will be sacrificed to the Christmas fairy. What part of DO NOT DISTURB did you NOT understand??

(translation: I love people who love me & value my time & opinions & input & presence. Just not today.)

It's been a while since I last posted, I almost can't remember how.

Exams are trundling along as expected. Not the exams themselves, of course - they start in three days - but the revision. Tum ti tum. Get up, study, eat, study, study, study, sleep. It's a simple and not terribly rewarding life I'm leading at the moment.

I am considering being adventurous and leaving the house in search of pastries and chocolate. I am reasonably certain that the corner store will stock them, so it won't really be a terribly long journey.

Study stuff - probably of no interest to anyone )


For something completely different - the Xmas wish lists! Woo and indeed yay. I have no time or money this year, which makes things interesting come shopping time. So I'm not gonna be listing purchases or amazon wishlists, as I can't reciprocate. But that doesn't mean that I can't have fantasy lists, right?

The rules )

The wishes )

As I said. Fantasies.

I have to go and make more tea, and go back to studying. I'll be back mid-December, if it all goes well.

1) I'm back in college, and prepping for finals. Finals are: a dissertation-style exam, where we research a given topic for a month beforehand and deliver a defence on an unseen question in the exam, and a seven-hour (full-day) paper on absoutely anything they can think of. My days are spent researching, and writing seven-hour exams as practice papers. This is tiring. *eats caffeinne pills*

2) Work-related things have kick-started, with a different direction rearing as a possibility & requiring prep time.

3) I'm also trying to keep abreast of fic commitments such as [livejournal.com profile] fire_fic and any ficathons I've already committed to. 

I'm probably not going to be very available until I get a handle on things. If anyone wants to help with the running of the faith-a-thon (which will hopefully be launched next month), that would be appreciated.

Otherwise - emails will be checked, journals less so.

*rushes in*

One exam down, one exam to go (Monday). [livejournal.com profile] athena25 made chilli, I ate it. Also, [livejournal.com profile] erestania and [livejournal.com profile] wingsmith and [livejournal.com profile] invisible_al ate it, too, so I was not the only one eating. Yea verily.

Um. I also had wine. On no sleep On very little, drugged sleep. Mmm, sleep.

Tomorrow - study!

But for tonight - I made a date for next Friday. *facepalm* Seriously. I have a time, a place, a guy, everything - except the clothing. *gulp* Oh noes, whatever shall I wear??? (And will the exams allow me to survive that long??)

*rushes out*

Last exam tomorrow afternoon. Sweet Jesus I am tired.
kangeiko: (wasting time online)
I'm so sick of exam revision I could vomit. I think that after a certain point in an individual's life - say, the age of 25 or so - they begin to greatly resent being made to prep for exams on someone else's schedule. It's what's happening with me, in any case. I'm reaching the point where I just don't see any real reason to continue with it - which is ironic, really, given that this set of exams are for a professional qualification, and are thus the most practical and directly applicable set of exams I've done to date.

I wish that this next fornight would JUST DIE ALREADY.

Plus, I haven't started on my [livejournal.com profile] yuletide fic yet, which is sort of asking for disaster, really, isn't it? But I have two whole days in which writing might happen, so it's just going to have to be done then.


Fandom things I plan on doing over December/January in order to not go crazy from teh real life (tm):

1. [livejournal.com profile] yuletide fic, due 19th Dec. I bought a copy of source, and will rewatch at earliest opportunity.

2. [livejournal.com profile] tww_minis threesome ficathon, due 29th Dec. Because West Wing makes my world better.

3. part 2 of the 1602/angelverse crossover for [livejournal.com profile] selenak, because I want to write it and the pile of research books on my desk just keeps growing.

4. part 2 of 'afterdays', because I need to write it before I forget it.

5. feedback for various people for this meme - add your fic if you'd like some holiday feedback!

6. Rorschach fic for [livejournal.com profile] kakodaimon.

7. Delenn & Franklin (?) fic for [livejournal.com profile] likeadeuce - honey, am I remembering this correctly? I lost the notes I had on it!! *is sucky & sucks*

8. For [livejournal.com profile] luvarvinsloane, for this meme: 5 things Dr. Barnett wishes she said to Arvin Sloane ( before she thinks he uses her IP pass.), 5 things Arvin Sloane would change if he could, 5 things Arvin Sloane has always wanted from Sydney... .

If I've promised you fics and then failed to deliver, tell me so!!! I'm going to have two whole weeks off, and plan to spend them sitting in coffee shops with a notepad and pen.

Right, off to book theatre tickets and then revise some more... *procrastinates like crazy*

In other news, this week's The Economist op ed has at least three logical inconsistencies. Can you spot them all?

Sweet Jesus I have reached new levels of stress. I was running up and down the stairs today to work off excess energy. God only knows what my neighbours thought.

I've also been watching The X-Factor, because it is my sekkrit sinful shame-thing and I can watch while writing up notes and not diminish my concentration level in the least.

I should really declare an LJ-break during the exam period, mainly 'cause it's too tempting to just post about the revision I should be doing instead of actually doing it. But I know I'll ignore said break and end up more stressed because of it, so - gah! *runs around in circles*

To calm myself down, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] tww_minis, which will involve me writing West Wing threesome fic. Yup, that's calming. *rips hair out* Go sign up here and join me in the madness. No, seriously, the deadline is after Xmas so it should be a nice excuse to unwind by re-watching TWW and writing flirty fic (no actual threesomes are required, so stop panicking).

Must go hit pillows some more. Gah!

I just got the news - I passed my MSc WITH MERIT!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy I could explode. Come 14 December, I'm going to be a MA MSc - with bells on!


ETA: Erm. I told my dad. He burst into tears. In, um, a good way. I guess I'm not the only one who's happy&relieved! *grin*
kangeiko: (wasting time online)
I have about three pence before I reach my overdraft limit but I am filled with the sudden urge to buy pretty things. This is bad. I must wait until the parentals have returned from Abroad and then make them buy me pretty things instead.

Also, I get to graduate on Dec 14th (again). I'm gonna be a MAMsc soon, yay! *squeals*

This means more graduation gifts, right??

ION, college = boring. On the plus side, I finish this latest torture in another year and then I qualify - big pay bump, woo! *salivates at the mere thought*

Did I mention that I require cash for pretty things? Shoes. I need new shoes. And, also, autumnal coats and scarves. And who knew that it costs £20 to dry clean suede gloves???? Not right. Not right at all. This is me - *points* - disgruntled.

Right - to bed.

This morning, Bank/Monument station, on the way to my exam:

Overhead announcer: please note, the Central line is currently closed between high barnet and some other place, due to faulty somethings. Blah blah blah, boring.

*waits for train on Circle/District line platform*

*train doesn't arrive*



Me: Excuse me, Mr station attendant person, why are we vacuating?

Station attendant: there's a faulty train on the central line.

Me: But - wasn't it there ten minutes ago?

Station attendant: there's a faulty train on the station line.

Me: but why do we have to close two stations to -


Me: *runs*

And then I caught a cab to Tower Gateway to get my train to Excel and sit my final exam. Woohoo! Exams over.

Also, faulty train, my big fat arse. Why did they evacuate the station attendants as well as the people in the station?

my very scary exam is tomorrow. going to bed. yep, slightly freaked. this is the biggie, the hard one, the one with the scary calculations and earnings-per-share and dividend-yield-ratios and deferred-taxation-tables with scary dongles stuck on the end.

*clutches index cards to chest*

also, I tried writing a S5-finale-compliant Sloane fic, and it was dire. It was so dire I'm not posting it here. See, even my Sloane voice refuses to cooperate with those final character assassination moments! Someone fax JJ a clue, stat.

Or, you know, JJ'ed.

It suddenly occurs to me that I've been writing a particular bit of fanon as, well, fanon, despite being given evidence in canon to the contrary. Dang nabbit. To wit: Sloane did not have a one-night stand with 'Laura' Bristow. Instead, he must have been sleeping with her before Sydney's conception up to and probably past Nadia's. Bumsticks! I wrote 'Bound' with their first encounter happening during Sydney's childhood, but this makes things much more complicated. Either Sloane must have suspected 'Laura' from the get-go, or he really was willing to carry on an affair with his best friend's wife. Which, you know, ruins my image of his as an almost-wonderful husband somewhat.

Bumsticks, I say. Do we know whether the S3 talk with Dr Barnett and the subsequent suspicions that Sloane is Syd's dad was him making it all up, or is it likely to be the truth? Because, well, bumsticks.

Also, in non-bum related news )

I did one and a half mock exams today. I finished Financial Reporting, and halfway through Public Finance I thought, "I really don't know the answer to the rest of these questions, so there's no point in me staying until the end." Yeah, so, I'm going to fail my mocks. That's not a problem. *lies through teeth*

Anyway. I have my stats&law mock tomorrow, and I wish I could just skip it. Seeing as I had a nap in the last fifteen minutes of FR today, it may do me more good to stay in bed. Meh.

Roll on the four-day weekend, that's what I say.

In fandom areas, [livejournal.com profile] reddwarfslash has become my constant companion. [livejournal.com profile] kahvi and a few others on there have signed up for RD-related [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100 things, and are - gasp! - actually writing for them. And I mean writing, as in a good two stories per week. They tend to be pretty good and IC, too. You guys should check them out.

*drinks tea*

In a Past Life...

Dear God.

Please let me pass these three exams of mine. I've been working hard, and although I know I could have worked harder, I really, really don't want to be fired.

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] erykah101:

Vixen Incomparably Conferring Thrilling Orgasms and Rapturous, Intense Affection

Mmmmm, handcuffs.

In other news, exam revision continues apace. I hope that my social life eventually recovers what with all the horrendous staying in occasionally and miniscule rate of absorption of knowledge and whatnot that's been going on. Shocking.

*munches on sweeties*
kangeiko: (Default)
so. um.

mock exams start tomorrow.

I will write proper entry when i have three seconds (maybe next year?), but for now -

[livejournal.com profile] la_fono drew me art!!!!!

I am so completely thrilled, it is beautiful and it is mine, all mine!!

Go see Baby Jenny and my darling Jeroen play, and send [livejournal.com profile] la_fono many deserved kisses.


incidentally, did you know that i get to have financial analysis exams in december? no, neither did i. some nice lady rang me yesterday morning to ask why i haven't registered for them yet.

But, on the other hand, I have art. So I am much, much happier than I was yesterday, when stabbing myself in the eyeballs seemed a viable option.
