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

Well, guys. This might seem sudden, but I've been thinking of moving to Dreamwidth ever since people started moving a year or two ago. But only recently I really started thinking about it and looking into moving to Dreamwidth seriously.

You know, at first I didn't want to - not because I'm lazy or anything, I'd happily move over to keep in contact with my friends, and I don't really see any problem moving per se - but because LJ has been my blogging home for so many years, you know? All my entries are here, all my icons and all of my friends' comments, too. LJ has been my blogging home for almost 7 years I believe, and that's such a long time. I've also recently renamed my account to the username I originally wanted after LJ deleted and purged a massive number of accounts, plus I'm part of some communities on LJ.

But... you know what? I look at my flist and it's so quiet. Maybe people got busier while I was settling in at uni, but I think most of them just moved to DW over time. I look at all the changes LJ has made, despite its users (English users, to be specific) yelling, 'Please don't do it'. And I've come to the conclusion that right now... I really don't like LJ. I don't like what it's doing, I don't like the way its users are being treated and no offence to any Russian speaker in my flist, but I don't like the fact that LJ's homepage once you login is all 95% written in Russian. I understand that lots of Russian people use LJ, but unfortunately I cannot understand Russian (I sound like the bad guy in Iron Man 2, lol). LJ's homepage has no use to me, except to check the last three comments on my entries and possibly checking a birthday or two. Not to mention the changes to the comments, which have possibly killed half (if not all) the roleplaying communities on LJ.

The people at Dreamwidth really care about their users and they have already tweaked the code around (it was originally the same code as LJ) so that is can do more neat things that LJ can't - or, technically, that LJ could do, but doesn't. Which makes me think: why is LJ not making those changes in the first place, instead of redesigning comments pages, which is the last thing we want or need? This question led me to think that maybe LJ isn't doing these things... because the people that now run it couldn't care less.

I've done my research on DW, and after reading other users' reasoning here, I have decided that my next post will probably be there. My username is chibichan, just like here. :) If you guys already have an account there, then comment to this post and I will add you on DW, too!

I will be crossposting entries to LJ, too. I will still check my LJ flist and post in communities I'm a member of. I'm not sure if I will disable comments here or not, though it would be nice to have them all in once place. I'll start importing my journal to DW soon, too, so I won't lose anything. :D (That was the biggest thing that prevented me from moving earlier.)

I hope to find you guys on DW, too. Right now it's in open beta, so you can create a free account without needing an invite code. :D Alternatively, you could still comment on my entries using OpenID (everyone on LJ has one). We'll see next time.

Thanks to Espo ([ profile] winged_requiem) I now WANT THIS. Maybe my mom would buy it if I asked nicely. :D B-b-but... I checked the same product on the Italian eBay site and it says, 'We do not ship to Italy', why is that?! D: I cannot believe it... *goes to sulk in the corner*

Anyway, today we had no lesson in the afternoon, just like every other Thursday, so I just... spent about 3 hours sleeping. XD; I'm just so tired, and you have no idea how many hours of sleep I have to catch up... Plus, this morning I was about to fall asleep during philosophy class, as well as Greek&Latin class... gah, I don't want to fall asleep during class, but I can't help it. D:

School aside... I just realized that I've reached 100 subscribers on youtube. XD; 103 now Also, I finally made my first crossover video, yay! :D
Jess/Blair; Shooting Star. It's a crossover between Gossip Girl and Gilmore Girls. Don't know if anyone is into those fandoms, but I really liked the pairing, so... yeah. Check it out, if you want to, it would make me happy. ♥

By the way, I was thinking of making this lj friends only... or semi-friends only, at least. I guess there are just some things that are way too personal for me to be public, so... yeah. It would probably be a good idea, wouldn't it?

I've been wanting to change layout for a while now and then I found this just today and decided to use it. It's made by [ profile] milou_veronica.

Whaaaa, I'm so obsessed with this song right now~
Got you [unverified] like fire
Come with me, let me take you higher
I'm the object of all your desire
And your attention is all I require

I say no
If you wanna take it slow
Don't stop, well, now let's go
Together we run this show

It's... so... CB. ♥ I swear, it just screams Chuck/Blair. That's why I'm going to make a video with it. :D
Speaking about CB... I STILL HAVE TO WATCH THE LAST EPISODE OF GOSSIP GIRL. it's not like I don't know what's going to happen, anyway...

Anyway, Monday was my friend's birthday. She's 18 now, yay! :D why is everybody turning 18 except for me? She's throwing a party tonight and I'm so totally going. First I'll have to get ready, but the party starts at 9:30 pm, so I have plenty of time to take a shower, wash & curl my hair and decide what to wear. I'm going to have so much fun tonight! :D

I was going to do a meme, but right now I don't feel like doing something that requires even a little bit of energy, though. XD; I'm just too tired. Will do that another time.

Also, recently I have this... sudden urge to play Fire Emblem. It's been ages since I last played Fire Emblem. I just finished one more chapter, though, didn't go that far. I really need a lot of time on my hands if I want to play FE correctly. I mean, it took me one HOUR to finish just one chapter, wtf? XD; It was fun playing, nonetheless.

Well... I don't want to talk about school, so that's pretty much everything, I think. I am currently downloading Gossip Girl's last episode of season 2. Expect some fangirling once I watch it, which will probably be tomorrow or someday soon~ :D

How is it going, f-list? What are you doing this weekend?

Why yes, random entry is random.

NEW BLEIGHTON PROFILE IS NEW. I've finally made a new profile that I like! I really felt like it was needed. It's a bit long, but I'm pretty happy with it. :D

Is it just me, or are the days flying? I mean, this weekend went by pretty fast... but anyway...

Hey f-list! :D How are you all doing? I'm still surviving school here. This week is gonna be pretty busy for me. Here it is:

Monday: Italian test + German literature test
Tuesday: math test + possibly German literature oral test (because the teacher's weird like that, but I'm not entirely sure I'll have to do this because a lot of people who had to take the oral test before me didn't, so maybe she'll do them instead)
Wednesday: I don't plan on going to school on this day, because there's the school assembly and, from what I understood, it's supposed to be Creativity Day or something and we're all going to this place where all the students gather in our city... so yeah, I don't want to spend the whole morning just going there and doing nothing. I'll probably go on my own out of curiosity and maybe meet a couple of my friends and possibly go somewhere and have lunch with them, but then I'm going straight home. We're supposed to have 2 hours of P.E. in the afternoon, so I'm not missing any important subject anyway. Besides, I really need time to study, seeing as the next day I have an English literature test, a mock-test of the CAE speaking exam, plus a law oral test.
Man, I'm going to die this week... D: Fortunately the 1st of May is a holiday in Italy, so this week is going to end on Friday instead of Saturday. Yay! That means that this week there will be only 3 actual days of school. :D

I was so busy this weekend that I couldn't download Gossip Girl's latest episode. asdfghjklasdfghjkl I NEED GOSSIP GIRL. RIGHT NOW. D: I'm addicted to that show, seriously...

Anime-wise, I've started watching Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. I've watched the first 5 episodes and, well... I like it, I think... I mean, I was never a fan of those anime where people fight using giant robots instead of actual weapons and/or their own strength, so I'm not too sure about this anime, but I like it, nonetheless. I'll keep watching it because I love the characters! :D Simon is so cute and Kamina is so cool! Yoko has got to be my favourite character, though. I also enjoy the funny side of this anime, so that's another reason why I'm going to watch it.

I should also start watching Code Geass and Shugo Chara! because they intrigue me a lot. I'll probably do that when I have more time aka during the summer. In the meantime I could start watching Metal Fight Beyblade, since it's started only recently, so I can easily keep up with it. I also need to catch up on Tsubasa and xxxHolic's latest manga chapters... mmm, looks like I have a lot watch/read. :D; At least I won't die of boredom...

Well, random entry is random. :D But anyway, how are you doing f-list? I just want to talk to you guys... tell me anything, even the most random things ever and I'll gladly reply to you. Seriously, we can even start fangirling together about something... I just want to talk to you, guys. ♥
