My jujitsu club has offered me a place on a three week jaunt to Australia (!!!) in September 09, which will essentially consist of sun, sand, sea and violence. Can you say 'yay'? :D It's gonna be a combination of seminars and competitions, alongside some touristy happiness. Of course, the guys in my club are all super-protecty 'OMG she's a girl' with me, so I think I'll only be fighting other girls. (This attitude may have something to do with the little squealy noise I make whenever I get a boo-boo. As opposed to the screamy noise I make when someone BREAKS my fucking TOE.) But still, awesome sauces with a side order of hysteria.

Also, I've been surfing YouTube, as you do, watching a few Captain John scenes from Torchwood. And now for a digression that only fans of both Torchwood AND Angel will understand: Captain John HART is the villain of the piece (and ex-boyfriend of the hero) in Season 2 of Torchwood. In Season 2 of Angel, the team's enemy is the evil law firm, Wolfram and HART. Coincidence? I think not.

No, but seriously, it's coincidence.

*crawls slowly out of hibernation*

In the immortal words of the immortal Captain Jack Harkness, "Didja miss me?". I've been off doing such things as turning sixteen (yesterday!), developing interests in new fandoms (namely Buffy; can ya say late to the party?), taking exams and, uh, sleeping. Lots of sleeping.

Anyhoo, great to be back. I've got two months of f-list which I'll probably give up on pretty sharpish. Hey, y'know what'd be great? Everyone leave me a comment, summing up your last two months in, let's say, three sentences or less. Ready, set, go!

It's all a bit miserable ATM, to be honest. Between exams and the fact that everyone appears to be dying (my brother's friend's best friend, from cancer; a friend's friend's dad, from suicide; Humphrey Middleton, from old age, presumably), nobody's exactly in the best of moods. And then there's the fact that everyone in the UK is currently in a state of Boris Johnson-induced shock, except perhaps for maddoggirl, our resident BNP representative.

You know when you have exams looming, and you know that you really, really, really need to revise, but you can't, because Whose Line Is It Anyway is on Five US, and sure, you've seen it before, but it's that really funny one with Ryan Stiles and Sandi Toksvig, so you'll do it in half an hour. But then when that's over, you get to thinking about your gap year, which isn't for a year and a half, but you still can't stop researching life in Guatemala City and the Volta region of Ghana (thank you, jaggedapples of CLH who doesn't actually know me but through whose journal I decided that I wanted to work for Cross Cultural Solutions in my gap year). And after that, your brother texts to say that he's in town, so you go down to meet him, because it'll only be an hour and you can revise afterwards.

But guess what. You never actually get round to revising. And it sucks. I had my first exam Friday, and I barely revised in the days before. Sure, it was piss easy, but my lack of work was still slightly disheartening.

So tomorrow, maddoggirl, some other assorted aquaintances and I are off to Weymouth (well, I'm off to Weymouth, the rest of them already live there) to audition for parts as extras in "The Boat that Rocked". You know, the film with KENNETH BRANAGH and BILL NIGHY and NICK FROST and KENNETH BRANAGH in. So everyone in a twenty mile radius seems to be ridiculously excited. Even though apparantly (according to Gay Theatre Boy Who Played Pilate In JCS) all we have to do is stand in a line and they pick out the people who look like they'd best suit the parts. 

Lordy, I'm going to be so crushed tomorrow when they don't pick me. Never mind, maybe KENNETH BRANAGH will be there. :D

Went to Bryanston (band camp) for five days. Was officially titled Sluttiest Dresser of the Week and won a leetle bar of chocolate. 

Went to the Royal Albert Hall in London. Played. Sang. Was awesome.

And how were your last few weeks, guise?

I revised for five and a half hours today! Constant chemistry, just trying to get it into my head. I plan to do the same for the next three days, alternating between chem and music, and then I'm off to Bryanston (five day music course which is rather heavier on the alcohol, fancy dress and parties than on the music) with a bunch of my friends. :D

My branes feel a bit explodey. D:

YAWN  

My new life is shaping up to be darn hectic. From now on, my life looks something like this: Sixth form 9-3:30 Monday through Friday, mixed discipline self defence Monday nights, Jesus Christ Superstar rehearsals also Monday nights, Jujitsu Tuesday and Thursday, Step-Aerobics Wednesday, one hour's work at Alibi's, the bar in town, either Mon, Tue or Wed, and between 3-4 sessions of dry-slope skiing per week. 

Phew. :D I'm a mad person. But it's kinda fun. If painful and completely exhausting.

Seeing my new surgeon on Tuesday. I either want a surgery or nothing, to be honest, because all the exercise I'm doing is just as effective as physio, and if surgery can't help then nothing can, and I'll just keep going as I am. So I'm hoping for surgery, but if not, I'll survive.

First person to place that quote (T_eyla, Wih, I'm looking at you guys) gets a cookie.

And I've decided on my courses for next year (finally). Chemistry A2, Biology AS, Maths AS and Law AS. :D

Maybe I'm allergic to holidays or something. When I woke up this morning, things were weird. For starters, I didn't wake up until half ten. Maybe that doesn't sound so weird, but I went to sleep at half ten LAST night, and yesterday I woke up at eight thirty. Second, someone released a bunch of kittens into my room, and they were fucking with my stuff, so I got up to tell them off. I crouched down to get on their level and, uh, fell over. Not quite a full blown comical fall, but I started tipping forward, and I sort of caught myself on my fingertips. So I went back to bed, because I get dizzy like  that sometimes and it normally gets better if I lie down. But it didn't. I've done all the things that normally help - lots of water, breakfast, sitting down, lying down. Is weird. My common sense tells me that I had sinus pain a few days ago, and there's probably a teeny tiny chance that the two things are related. Either that or my chronic low blood pressure. But what can I say, I watch House, and I'm freaking out slightly in case I have sarcoidosis.
