.... is anyone still reading this?

Two years after my last post. I have clearly set new records in procrastination. But I guess successfully completing your first ever research degree will do that to you. This is what I tell myself to feel better.

So here I am, LJ, back again, hopefully for longer this time, for better or for worse. Fandom, I've missed you.

Why is it that whenever I'm wishing someone a happy birthday I don't have time for sparkly text? -.-

\(^o^)/ Happy birthday[info]fic_faery ! \(^o^)/

Here's wishing you sparkliness and hot British/Japanese/Korean/Generally Human boys for years to come!

Easter greetings to those for whom the festival isn't only about bunnies and eggs :D

They had a sunrise service here on campus and my apparently insane classmates were insistent on attending. Of course, we were all convinced that if we attempted to sleep no one would be awakening at five am to make it to sunrise, so the brilliant idea was to stay up all night. Which we did, wandering about the streets of campus like a group of literary drunkards but none of us with a drop of alcohol in our systems, singing bawdy Bollywood songs and terrorising the general public. The service, when we made it to it, was in this gorgeous boulder-covered-hill-thingie where there was a small group of people with guitars and Bibles and an Australian who seemed to think he was Shantaram and lived in a hovel somewhere.

In the end, we sang a few songs, ate cake, and recieved gift wrapped boiled eggs for our troubles.

Well, it's the first day of spring *glares at too-hot-weather* and I thought it a perfectly perfect day to foolishly believe that I can put a higher priority on my personal lj than on, er, other ones >>

We'll... see how that goes.

Meanwhile I'm trying to figure out a way to incorporate (more) hobbies/obsessions into coursework; presentation topic for Popular Culture paper topic: Anime Fan Culture ^_^ I consider it very likely that my term paper will involve a)web memes or b)RP. And people think I'm actually learning something at university.

And now I need to change my layout again

Finally done getting things pretty much in order back at college so I can start doing nothing for another 5 months before crazily writing term papers in the 6th. Learn from experience? Who? Me?

I have a gazillion pages to backtrack on my flist so >.> and apologies if I missed anything important.

However.

Oshitari cousins.

I die.

... And Star Trek has eaten my brain.

And I feel so blessed for being able to escape the 4-degree-temperatures of University and retreat to the brilliant 30s of home~ *extends invites to all to come share the warmth and sun sunny sunshine*

I still live. *prostrates self before flist*

Liah, your mail came within hours of me thinking I should mail you o.o

I can't believe it's been nearly a month! A month in Delhi, a month at Uni and a month without regular internet ogod

On the bright side, I think I could get used to a system of learning that does't require one to write exams or actually study unless one feels inclined to, yes I could. We had something of a Freshman welcome party thing where we had to down an entire glass of punch in one go. God bless iron constitutions. It was quite strange being in a class full of Master's students and thinking 'oh they're so young' though.

Oh and this is possibly the greenest campus ever, which shall be proved by the view from my balcony.

The ViewCollapse )

Okay, so I've decided I kinda like Delhi. I do not like how bloody Jawaharlal Nehru University took a bloody WEEK to process my forms for hostel allotment forcing me to stay over at little known places but I do kinda like the place. As such. The city, with all its bigness and its peppered-with-national-monuments-ness.

BUT I WANT MY INTERNET BACK DAMMIT GIVE IT BACK I WANNA BE ABLE TO GO ONLINE WHENEVER I WANT AND NOT GET DISCONNECTED FIVE MINUTES LATER I WANT TO BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD *wails*
