31! And 36.

ksdjghsdfgkj! Horrendous!

Um. OK.

31 - Iiiii love my optimism. Not that I'm not one of those always-perky, 'everything's great la la la!' people because ahahaha, no. I'm just thankful for my ability to tell myself, even when things feel as black as they can be - this will get better. Because it keeps me going, and reminds me that there is never a point where it's OK to give up.

36 - oh, Lord. This is a tough one. Because I'm very good at a lot of things, but I hesitate to say I'm really excellent at anything. Drumming, perhaps. I was always a natural behind a set of drums, and was constantly told to become a professional.

I really just hope I'm excellent at getting the most out of life. I'm not in a position to do as much as I'd like at the moment, but once Evie's a bit older I hope to get back to travelling, and showing her things, and doing stuff again. And hopefullly I'll be excellent at imbuing her with a sense of how much great stuff there is out there, too.

Omg, also horrid.

OK. Hmm. Just one?

Well then - Milliways, I guess.

See, I love it. I love it far too much to ever want to leave it. At the same time, I know it distracts from a whole lot of other things that I should prioritise first. The reason I let it distract me is a) it's awesome fun, and b) it involves other people. Other people I don't want to let down, if I've committed to something with them. So I play, and then I'm slow, and then I feel dreadful for holding other people up while my RL gets crazy.

Plus, it's so much easier to write in/for Milliways than it is original stuff - which is not at all conducive to finishing the edit of my book, and getting it off to the agent. Which, y'know. Sort of needs to get done. So I'm conflicted, because all logical sense tells me to leave - or at least take a long hiatus, until everything's squared away in RL. That would mean until after exams in June, probably. But I've promised people, the idea of staying away that long is sort of horrifying.

So I try to play, and write original stuff as well, and I feel like I'm doing neither very well at the moment. But, c'est la vie. Seeing as leaving really isn't an option I'm willing to embrace, I guess I'll just have to juggle for the forseeable future.

7 and 27

7 - Impossible, really. I can narrow it down to anything by Terry Pratchett. I adore The Time-Traveller's Wife, by Audrey Niffengger, and The Hobbit. But there are so many individual books that have blown me away over the years, I can't possibly choose just one.

27 - easier! Finish Uni, do my Masters. Write things. Get paid for writing things. Bring up a happy, healthy daughter. Travel a lot, make money, build my dream house. Normal stuff, I guess. There are a few job things that'd be a nice added bonus, but I don't want to jinx them by writing them down.

32 and 39?

Date: 2011-12-08 09:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
32 - I have so many! Unnecessary rudeness. Bad drivers. Patronising people (omg, RAGE). Prejudice. Having to repeat myself (awkward, when mother to a four year old). People leaving cupboards/drawers open in the kitchen. My own inability to just get thigns done.

...the list really could go on. I am just a giant ball of irritation, these days.

39 - hmmm. Cliche, probably - and boringly predictable - but any time Evie says, 'I love you, Mummy', I think.

People do say nice things to me, but I'm very bad at remembering specific examples.

dynastessa: peter parker } the amazing spider-man (a sort of fairytale.)
From: [personal profile] dynastessa
Ooooh. Um. 23!

Also: where did you get the HTML-code for this meme? I think it's finally time I did it too. :)

I just C&P into a rich text box, I'm afraid! No idea about HTML.

23. Qualities that make me more likely to love a person.

Hmm. I'm assuming this means to be in love with someone. I've only fallen for a few men, and each time I have no idea why. I could say that I'm more likely to love them if they give a shit about me, or if they are in some way broken. But truth is, the one thing they've all had in common is that they're unattainable. I've never even come close to falling for someone I could conceivably go out with.

Taking the statement from a platonic point of view - I'm more likely to love someone as a mate if they're fun, but not shallow; someone who'll listen and talk, and get drunk with me. And have their own life outside of the friendship too. Nothing puts me off a person more than being the sole focus of their social life. *shudder*

Hmm, 12 and 30.

Also, how the devil are you?! How's that little girl of yours, not so little I bet?! Did you end up going to Oxford in the end? I remember you said you were conflicted cos you didn't want to take Evie away from her dad.

Date: 2011-12-17 11:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I'm pretty good, thanks! And Evie's great too. She just recently turned four, and pretty much rules the world. As for Oxford, the decision was moot in the end, because I didn't get in (again). C'est la vie. I'm halfway through my second year at Lancaster, and loving it. How 'bout you? Still in Preston?

30. What I would do if I won the lottery:

I'm going to go big on this, and say what if I won the Euromillions on a triple rollover. Because then the list would look something like - apartment in New York, townhouse in London, an Audi R8, private education fund for Evie, build my dream house, pay for my sister to go back to college, make sure the family are taken care of - pretty standard stuff, I reckon.

12. The reason behind my last break-up.

Never had one. Unless you count the reason Evie's dad and I stopped gettin' it on, which was...Evie.

Lancaster is meant to be awesome. They've got a self contained student campus! Nah, not in Preston anymore (thank goodness) , I moved to Surrey about 5 years ago, but since September I've been in Nottingham. Doing an MSc at Nottingham Uni.

Haha, I'm the same when it comes to the Lottery, it has to be all or nothing. Though I've never played, so I guess it's nothing.

You've never had a break-up? very lucky, although you did go through a lot of grief with the babydaddy so that defo counts as one. How is he? you guys getting on better now?
