I've been video gaming like there's no tomorrow. This is partly due to the fact that Andrew got me a super amazing RPG for 3DS which I've been wanting for a while. It's called Tales of the Abyss and man, I LOVE IT.

small tales of the abyss talk )

As for my birthday, it was great. Since Andrew had to work on my actual birthday, we decided to celebrate my pre-birthday, that is the day before my birthday.

We went to Perth and just spent our time going around shops and having coffee. We wanted to have lunch at an Italian place, but it was closed (however, we have decided to go have lunch there sometime soon), so we ended up going for a coffee and a snack at Costa. We went to an art shop and Andrew bought quite a lot of stuff (because he's thinking of going into environmental architecture) and he got me a reporter notebook, so I can write down ideas for articles/stories and whatnot. Then we went to Game and Andrew bought me Tales of the Abyss. I thought he had bought it for himself at first and I was indeed surprised when he told me that it was actually a gift for me. XD Then we went to Waterstones and Andrew bought a manga. And that's about it!

I spent the day of my actual birthday at Andrew's house and it turns out his mom and his sister also bought me gifts! Andrew's mom got me a teacup with a cat on it, plus a small red teapot, which I adore. ♥ (I have a thing for teapots.) Andrew's sister got me some very nice chocolate from Thorntons, which I am enjoying slowly, day by day. ♥

And let's not forget all the people who wished me happy birthday, both here on DW and on Facebook! :D Every one of your wishes made my day so much better and made me so happy! ♥

So yeah, overall my birthday was great, thanks to everyone both in real and internet life. :D

I'm also getting into the habit of writing an article every day to put into my "clippings" and that I can then use as samples for magazine editors. It's just a bit hard coming up with ideas, though. If you guys would you like to suggest an idea for an article, go right ahead! Pretty much anything goes (as long as I'm able to talk about it, of course). :)

And now, I shall go back to Tales of the Abyss.

Hello people from the awesome LJ → DW friending meme! I'm Chibi, nice to meet all of you! My basic info is on my profile, while a (sort of) intro post is right here. :D I also changed my DW layout for the occasion, haha.

This entry is going to be a mixture of fandoms and real life. We've had a lot of real life posts recently, so I want to balance things out a bit.

real life: back at uni, ereader, computer stuff )

fandoms: skyfall, the big bang theory, the hunger games, the it crowd; beware of SPOILERS )

And that's pretty much all. I need to start watching Once Upon a Time and finish the pilot of Elementary (but from what I've seen, I can tell I already love this show).

Also, I decided to start that 30-day meme that I posted some time ago, also in the hopes that it will make me update my journal more. Here goes! :D

day 1: something you hate about yourself )

That's all for today!

Hello, DW! I woke up at 8am this morning and couldn't go back to sleep. I'm kinda irritated by my inability to sleep in, lol. I always wake up either at 7 or 8 every morning and I don't know why. I guess I should be happy that my body is now used to certain rhythms or something, but sometimes I just wish I could sleep until 9 or 10, considering that I've been really lucky with my timetable for this semester and 90% of my lectures start at or after 10am. I've never been a morning person, but now it seems that I've become an early bird. Life is strange sometimes.

Anyway. I'm getting into the habit of posting more frequently now and I really hope I can keep it up. For years I've neglected my journal when I was on LJ, but now that I'm on DW, I somehow want to post more. It's like I've re-discovered how fun LJ was when I first joined that site. So, sorry if I end up spamming your f-lists!

Speaking of LJ... I can't believe how quiet it is these days. Now my f-list on DW is actually more active than my f-list on LJ - and I used to have a very active f-list. These days, only 2-3 people actually manage to update their LJs. It makes me very sad. I wish everyone who still used LJ would move over here. DW is such a nice place to be. I don't know what the owners of LJ plan to do with that site in the future, but I sense it's not going to be pretty. I've seen screenshots on how they would like LJ to look in a few years and I was genuinely scared. I'm very glad I moved over here and a big thank you goes to my LJ friends who still comment on my entries, despite the move. You're amazing, guys. ♥

Onto other matters. According to Amazon, the law books that I ordered should arrive today. Which means I will most likely spend the next days reading the materials for the Equity & Trusts essay that I have to do. It would be great if I could finish it before the deadline, so wouldn't need to worry about it anymore and if I needed to edit something, I could just go back to it without being pressured for time.

Yesterday my dad sent me money! Most of it will go to the university to pay for accommodation, but I'll still have more than £200 to pay for food and anything else. Not that I'm going to spend all that money, but it's nice to know that you're economically safe in case anything should come up.

I also changed my moodtheme yesterday. I will forever love my Leverage animated moodtheme (in fact, I might go back to using it in the future), but I felt like my journal needed a change of moodtheme. Now I have an animated moodtheme of the second season of Gossip Girl, which is my favourite season so far. I really like it! ♥ I think the gifs are perfect for every mood. :D

Anyway. Since I want to post more, but it seems that real life is going to be kind of boring for the next few days (I'm not going to torture you guys with Law of Equity & Trusts, lol), I thought I'd do... exactly, a meme! It's been so long since I've done one. This one might be rather old (I've found it while searching for old posts on a LJ memes community), but I've never done it and it looks interesting. I will actually start it tomorrow, for now I'll post the whole meme so I don't have to include it in every post. Here it is!

30 day meme )

And that's all for now. See you guys in the next post! :D

good news!

Problem resolved, guys! :D This morning I called UCAS's Customers Service Units and after a couple of minutes I was able to solve the problem and now my application is being processed! ♥ I was so scared/nervous of calling, but it didn't go that bad! XD The guy who picked up the phone was really nice and polite (which to me is a big pro, because sometimes when we phone to some Italian customer service the people who pick up the phone don't act professional at all). He even pronounced my name right (foreign speakers also have trouble with my name)! Ohohoh~ *thumbs up* 8Db And asdfghjkl THAT BRITISH ACCENT. ♥ I had to make an effort in order to listen to what he was saying, 'cause that accent was distracting. XD After the call, I wanted to call Customer Service Units again, just to hear that accent over the phone, hahaha~ ... wait. Am I fangirling over a phone call? XD

Anyway. Sorry to make you all worry. ♥ Everything's okay now. :D

And nowww... meme time~ (as always XD)!

Ten Days Meme )
day six: five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever) )

Oh, by the way, if any of you wanted me to give you five fandoms on the last meme, then just tell me and I'll gladly do so. :D Sometimes I'm so absent-minded when it comes to memes. XD;

GUYS. I seriously had to STOP replying to all your wonderful comments for a moment to post this. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT. (read: THANK YOU, I LOVE YOU ALL. ♥)
HAPPY NEW YEAR! ♥

This is the last entry of 2010 and I know exactly who I want to dedicate this entry - to you all. To all of my friends. To those people who believe in me. To those who shared happiness, sadness, joy, hope, anger and love with me. To those who are always there for me and to those who can't always be there, but I know you're there. To those who comfort me and smile with me. To those who fangirl with me and to those who simply put up with me, day after day. To the old friends, new friends and friends that were lost and refound. This is for you. I love you all. ♥ I seriously do. I hope our friendship lasts forever. And I hope this new year will bring us closer. I wish for you to achieve your goals and to realize your dreams. I really wish you all the best. May you all be happy. ♥

June 2015
