I seem to be doing a lot of this at the moment. But it's been difficult to adjust to the slower pace again; after two weeks of full-time work, suddenly going back to doing nothing again is strange. I have to keep writing my dissertation, but I haven't really gotten anywhere with it...well, I know what I need to add to my methodology now to finish it to my supervisor's expectations, I just need to get on with it...going to the library this morning to find some books for that purpose, although I'll probably write it up tomorrow.
I have a couple of weeks before he goes away on holiday, and I'd like to make some headway into my literature review during that time...2000 words seems reasonable. It'll be about 6000-7000 words when finished, so if I can do that, I should be able to finish it over August. I also need to look for more work, make a career's appointment tomorrow to decide where my future is going - if I have a future, and assuming it's going anywhere - and...oh, did I mention my grandparents are probably coming down over the weekend? Yay.
Anyone else in merry olde Englande been bombarded by random showers recently? It was raining remarkably hard yesterday for about 10 minutes every hour or so. It was quite entertaining watch people scurry for cover...it's been a bit busier than usual around her, since we've had a circus set up in the field for the last few days. Watching them try and get their over-sized trailers down the road was even funnier; they got stuck for about half an hour the day they arrived. They left last night...between 11pm and (I'm told, since it kept my mother awake) 2:30am. Fucking lorries, making a racket. They couldn't leave at a sensible hour...why, precisely? I think I was asleep before midnight - I definitely wasn't awake at half two - but listening to them humming outside was still aggravating...and someone phoned, as well. WTF. Has the entire world gone mad? Or are we all nocturnal now?
I'm not as tired as I should be, probably. Although I sleep fairly soundly most nights now...probably because I'm so tired when I go to bed anyway. But then, no sense trying to sleep when you're not tired.
On the plus side, I found the Atelier Ayesha OST this morning, as well as the accompanying Vocal Album, Twilight Hour. I'm still in the process of listening to it, although from what I've heard so far, it's...different. Not sure if this is better or worse than Meruru's OST yet, though. Although I absolutely LOVE Flower Guide, the opening theme, and most of the Twilight Hour songs are fantastic. I tend to avoid vocal albums...might have to give the other ones a look-in; I might have been missing out on something special.
Oh, and for anyone curious, because I lack the motivation to post as much at the moment, I'm currently playing Phantasy Star Portable 2 and Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 - my attention span is best suited to short mission-based gameplay at the moment - and still watching HeartCatch Precure, although Pandora Hearts and/or Mawaru Penguindrum will be my next anime. Still reading the Wheel of Time. The one I'm currently on - Crossroads of Twilight - has VERY low ratings on the Kindle Store. Apparently it's filler. Happy happy joy joy.
Blah blah blah, wasting time, blah. I need to go to the library.0 Thanks, 0 Likes
