I've added in bits to my original draft, and also finished the re-write except for external bits - it's way longer than the original so I don't know if it's viable as a thesis submission. I'm getting antsy about my time constraints and the fact that I have no real idea about limitations or expectations for this thesis. Um, organisation fail? Also, I really can't be bothered editing my piece. Sigh.
Meanwhile, I think I've sorted out my postgrad woes. If I get in at USyd, I'll study part-time over two years and make sure I only have the exchange subject to do in the final semester. Problem solved. I've also applied for a one year writing work experience position, so that would fill in time nicely. I'm applying for an editorial assistant position as well, but I'm not getting my hopes up there.
I was listening to Folie a deux yesterday and was reminded of the time Abbi and I related all the tracks to Torchwood. It's been awhile since I've listened to the album and the thought of Torchwood these days generally makes me feel ill, so it was an absolutely gorgeous moment to give the album a spin and have those fuzzy, happy memories that have eluded me these past few months. Saving grace.
On the topic of music, I suggest everyone watch this gig video taken by the fabulous Abbi as it totally made my morning. Then listen to Vivarium, it is made of awesome. Scottish bands FTW.
Actually it's been new album nirvana around here lately, with both Daisy and The resistance getting a good workout. Today also marks the release of the new Kill Hannah album, and I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my pre-order from the US. Good times.
Now I suppose if I do my editing, I can fit in another episode of Big Bang Theory before bed. Sheldon Cooper helps to ease the pain.
