I have too many fandoms and not enough icon space. You'd think a paid account of 250 icons would be enough, right? Nope. Not for me. I'm trying to delete some icons so I can make space for other fandoms and I'm trying to have between 3 and 5 icons for each fandom... but of course it doesn't work that way. Because for some fandoms I want to upload 10+ icons and that leaves no space for other fandoms. Also, the ever-present problem of 'which icon do I delete'. I want to keep pretty much 90% of the icons I already have uploaded. So I have no space to upload new icons. I'm seriously considering giving in an just buy some permanent icon space, but I don't know if I should.
My advisor of studies replied to one of my emails. She wants to meet on Thursday, which is the day of my last resit. That, and the fact that she did not reply to my second email (the one where I had asked her some serious questions and told her I was considering not going to the resits) slightly ticks me off, to be honest. I kinda needed some advice about my resits. I know she probably wants to meet and talk about this calmly, but she could have written something
via email. She could have told me what she thought about me not going to my resits. But nope. Nothing. She's not exactly doing much to make me like her.
I have some great news though - I think I've made a new friend! :D Her name is Aisling and she's an American who's lived in Scotland for most of her life. I met her a while ago, while going with Andrew to this place where young christians hang out (although I'm not religious, Andrew is and I decided to tag along for the discussions). I added her on Facebook, but I was too shy to talk to her. But I wanted to get to know her better, if that makes sense? So after thinking about it, I decided to send her a message and we started talking. She's studying coding and programming at a college, so we geeked about that for a while and then moved onto a variety of other topics, like books, games, university and such. We talked for hours. She doesn't play much video games, but I told her that there's a variety of games out there and that she probably hasn't played the right game yet! So I told her about the Harvest Moon games, which I'm completely addicted to. She told me she'd like to try them out! :D So we're meeting sometime next week, on Andrew's day off from work, to hang out and I promised her I would lend her my Harvest Moon game so she could try it out! Ahh, it's so great to make friends. Shows that I still can
make friends. And as usual, I make more friends outside of my uni course than in the actual classroom. So yeah, I'm really happy about having made a new friend. ♥
Andrew and his dad went away yesterday with their climbing coach to do some serious climbing and they won't be back until Thursday, which is the day of Andrew's birthday. I'm getting him a cover for his Macbook, because I don't know what else to get him and I already got him a copy of Catcher in the Rye
last year as a random present. Ever since he started his job he's bought me quite a lot of presents: a pair of earrings, the whole Sailor Moon manga in Italian and Animal Crossing: New Leaf! And I'm pretty sure he's going to buy me the new Harvest Moon game (A New Beginning), as soon as it comes out in Europe, as a present for my birthday, which is... relatively soon, actually (20th August). I'm going to be 22, you guys. Scary thought.
So, I promised I'd talk about books... and here it is! Beware though, I've read quite a lot of books in the past few months, I'll try to summarise my thoughts as much as I can, but for some books I need to rant, so... you've been warned!( cut for huge list of books + spoilers! )
Aaaaand that's it! Whew, that was a long update. Do follow me on Goodreads
if you're interested, though!
