Happy whatever holiday this is. Honestly I didn't even look it up, just saw it was a holiday I didn't have classes on and made a schedule to study off of. The schedule was, in hindsight, ambitious and didn't take into account natural distraction tenancies.


Considering what normally happens, I slept in to about 8 today, got up, checked email, and went for breakfast. As it turned out, quite a lot of people were there so I have one of my baked potatoes with cheese and listen to general chatter. I know that both Greek and French elections have just happens which means Blandine is upset. I don't follow local politics let alone European so I have no idea what any of it means.

Came back to my room and settled into my schedule. The first thing was to go through six parasite lectures nad make notes and put them on the wall with the charts. This took a surprising amount of time because once I got to Th and Tc cells my brain stopped functioning and it was a drag to get it all on the paper, which I did. Took about four hours and a couple of facebook interruptions but it all is now on my wardrobe.

My self-reward for finishing that was a shower, not that exciting I know, but I cut my bangs so I'm pretty excited to be able to see properly. I went downstairs and grabbed pancakes for lunch at almost 2 in the afternoon and came back upstairs. I couldn't do my laundry because Daphne was doing her things. Gave back upstairs to dig into the next portion of my work: another set of Conservation notes which took all the way until dinner. While doing these notes I watched last night's BGT though I already knew the end, watched a little of NCIS, and went to read up on a House character and accidentally spoiled it for myself. I know sort of how season 8 is going to end. Oh dang.

I'm thinking about me and money and things and I need to check my acconuts to see if I can afford to go to the Biology Ball or Thursday Jive. I need money for Ireland, that's for sure, and Sarah is planning out Cornwall which I also need to do. Where's all the rum gone? No, I meant money. Where is the money? To be fair, I'm doing pretty darn good in terms of food money right now.

Went down and found I had pulled out a different soup than I intended for dinner, no matter, heated that up and threw some cheese on it, ate it in the lounge while waiting for this night's episode of BGT. It was good, I picked the winners pretty well I think. I came upstairs to read that and write a long email and try to get some essay topics in. Tomorrow I have a lecture I won't have jeans for, and a long list I still need to work on.

I get all my best ideas when listening to sermons I think, or at least I've got a lot of them by being in church. Yesterday in conjunction with something else, I got an idea for my writing. not TCM, but Cycle story which in it's first trimester of thought let along infancy. One of the worship songs I'd never heard was about the closeness of heaven, and it reminded me of a book I read where all worlds overlap and a single cut will allow you to inexpert differences in worlds, a bit like an invisible curtain dividing worlds. That could be good for Cycle. The other thing in my head is the picture of a bouncy, energetic brunette character that's been skipping by my side mentally for a few days. She - though not precisely female, this would be the best way of describing it - is the human personification of something else, so while the word 'female' is what comes to mind, the being is somewhat more asexual than that. Happy, free-spirited, bouncy. She makes for good mental company and is the companion of the main character in Cycle, albeit in her original form. I didn't know my head wanted me to work on that project when I'm clearly restructuring the TCMb thing. Perhaps that's the fun of it. If I could take the young happy person and make them my permanent muse, I'd never have time for anything. I already seem to have too much to do with writing.

Tomorrow is another day to work hard and conquer. I feel fairly accomplished today.

Lots of love from the pouring rain that's cleaning my window,
