Setting Goals

On April 5, 2008, I made myself a 101 in 1001 challenge, which is a list of 101 goals you want to complete in 1001 days. I still have time - my time ends on NYE 2010 - but even from a couple of months in, I realised that my desires were changing, and some goals lost their allure and I found new ones. So I am abandoning this list in favour on one that is a little more pressing:

Things to do before Christmas, 2009

1. Get a haircut
2. Buy Dad's present
3. Wrap presents, write cards
4. Prepare for Christmas concert
5. Let Ian know I have to work on the night of Carols by the Bay
6. Finish organising all the notices, assignments, uni info sheets, etc., that have heaped up on my desk
7. Get a new moisturiser because even scraping it out of the bottle with my pinky just doesn't do it any more
8. Make sure Mum pays me back for my Christmas present from her
9. Purchase professional photos from the leavers' dinner
10. Bake a fruitcake
11. Put up trees at both houses
12. Get $5 Secret Santa present for work

I can't help liking shiny things

My tastes in fashion have become a lot more... normal, lately. Or maybe I just haven't felt like dressing up. I don't know. All I know is that my new dream shoes are Alexander McQueen.


Yeah, the gold women looks a tad cheap (and they are, apparently they only cost £370 when they were available, which is pretty good all things considered) but damn they're gorgeous.

It's just weird because I've consciously been working towards classic lolita, but I've found myself swooning over Emily Temple Cute, Jane Marple, and even Betsey Johnson.  And while I still adore all the OTT frilliness of lolita, when I go out I just feel like wearing jeans and T-shirt, or a nice skirt.  Never a petticoat.  These days I only wear my knee-high socks with knee-high boots, and I push them down a bit so you can't see them.  My brand clothes are becoming dreadfully neglected.  Which reminds me, I need to get rid of my OPs because I never wear them and it makes me sad to see them hanging, neglected in my wardrobe.  

ETA: woah, tangent here!

Just to clarify for those reading this who don't know, my parents are divorced.  I spend alternating weeks at each parent's house.  I've decided that after exams are finished, which is less than two weeks away, I'm going to choose the one place to stay at.  They tell me I'll still have a room wherever I go, but this back-and-forth thing is getting to be ridiculous.  So anyway, all this means major inventory, deciding what to chuck and what to keep and where to put them.  Hopefully it will get me into gear again.  I'm not looking to reinvent myself, or find myself, or any of that crap.  I just want to make sure I have everything I need for the future: nothing more, nothing less.

 Oh my God I added up all the costs of these end of year celebrations.  Dress + shoes + tickets + presents + leavers' top + water pistols + etc.  My jaw's still on the floor somewhere.  Problem is... studying makes me want to buy stuff.

John Safran's Race Relations is actually pretty good viewing.  Although... it kind of makes me want to make out with somebody in Anne Frank's attic.

Still, if you're going to get ideas from the show, that's probably the one you'd want to get, as opposed to the stealing-women's-underwear thing, or the crucifixion thing.

Study WithOut Teachers is a silly idea

Okay, I know that I've been a little bit invisible on the internet over the past couple of weeks. The truth is, I'm really only posting because I have to study for exams now, and I found this in our pantry:
Hilarious Engrish, and more!Collapse )

The hunt for the perfect formal dress is ON! I decided not to get the one I posted last time because it was just too expensive.

Looking at all these black dresses is turning me gothic you guyzzzz XD (sadly, I will not be getting this one either. A 60cm waist? wtf?)

Going Without

I have 19 minutes left until I begin the 40 Hour Famine.  I'm starting it three hours before the official start time to fit in with work.  I'm kinda scared my hunger's going to affect my school work, but we'll see how that goes.  At least I get to go to school, right?  If you can read this, you're way luckier than you might think.

Writer's Block: Fantasy Sports

Imagine you manage a coven of baseball-playing vampires. The Cullen family is really strong this year and you want to bring in a ringer. Which currently active MLB baseball player do you sire?
My true response to this question probably can not be recorded without the use of obscenities.  So I'll focus instead on the tautology of "MLB baseball".

Just as I thought I was getting sick of LJ drama, I'm suddenly very amused by the comments on seannau's journal.
