...of tequila for every time the word "epic" was used on my birthday cake by commenters, I would be at least as drunk as Travis Willingham
Thank you to everyone who has commented and favourited the cake - I will get around to thanking you individually, but I currently have 336 Alerts! If I thank all of you at the same time I think I'll kill my internet and get told to stop spamming people. But I will get to you all, gradually.
In just over 24 HOURS that cake gained more favourites than the cake for my 15th birthday has in three YEARS.
The other thing keeping me away from saying thank you is this dreadful essay I have been drafting. I have exceeded my word limit, not covered all the topics I feel are relevant, haven't explored or analysed opinions or technique, and I don't think the essay has ended up being about what I intended to talk about at all. BUT I HAVE SOMETHING TO HAND IN TOMORROW. AND THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.
I have no idea how many times this thing has made me want to start crying this week. I've been ridiculously tired and stressed, and I'm only a week into school. I honestly don't think my hands have stopped trembling since Saturday. I've also managed to mutilate my fingers more than usual, keep on knocking stuff over, forgetting anything in my short-term memory and completely lose my maths/logic head.
I must be tired.
On a positive note, the peer supporting stuff is going okay at the moment, and to be honest, I have a hell of a lot to be grateful for. Yesterday I went out for a walk by the river to clear my head after spending hours researching, and I just sat down on a bench and prayed to say thank you for what God has given me and also what he has taken away, and to say sorry for stuff. I felt a little better in myself afterwards, but still had a headache.
So... Yes. This weekend I have Music School
and I'm going to London for a BBC BLast course on manga character creation - and I also need to finish the art hw I didn't get done for this week. I'm not going to get any rest until after Christmas.
Love and prayers,
Oh... and anyone else watched Ponyo
and the full 2hr version Akira
? Any opinions on them? I've watched them all in the last week, and while I came away with the feeling that they were good... they were definitely weird too. I'd like to hear other people's thoughts (dub or sub, I'm not bothered).
