I have just discarded and revived and discarded three versions of a crucial plot point for the fic I'm working on and I'm not happy with any of them. I wrote the first part for the second one (900 words) before the third one popped into my head, but it's still far from perfect. Why must plot be so difficult?

Since writing that, I've changed the last scenario around again. It's staying that way because it's the best one I've come up with. Aargh!

In other news, I've finally opened a Facebook account because my RL friends kept begging me to and I am going to need it to stay in contact with them once I leave, which is only a month from now. I feel a little sad about that. I'm sure I'll be feeling a lot sadder in the coming weeks. But... London! Must focus on the awesomeness that is London. Which I am a little obsessively. Anyway, I'm trying to learn how to navigate this new Facebook thing, which is completely different from LJ, so it's a tad confusing. There are so many things flashing at me all at once. I'm sure I'll find my way around in a week or so, but I'm always so lost when I come across something new. Which is why I'm back here at LJ right now, which I like a lot. Too much. *is hopelessly addicted*

ETA: I almost broke my mobile. It fell to the floor as I was getting out of the car, which it's done dozens of times, but this time the screen went black! I tried turning it off and on a couple of times, but still nothing. Finally, I took the battery out and now it works. For now. *watches phone*
Except not really because I haven't graduated yet, but I took my last final today, so the classes are DONE! DONE! Bachelor's degree finally done and over with. I got a bit, okay, completely blocked at the end of the test (Contemporary Lit), so I don't even want to think about how I did on this test, but I think I have a B in the class. I wanted an A, but I sorta got blocked on the last test, too, so I don't know. I got perfect on the other quizzes, though (extremely easy ones, the prof had to decide at the end of the semester that he wanted to get difficult). Anyway, he likes me, so maybe I'll get points for pity? I hope?

My brain's so tired that I'm looking at the screen in a stupor. I want sleep, but I can never fall asleep at this hour. I'll have to watch some Sark, instead. *grin*

I finished catching up with Doctor Who. I'd say more, but... tired. I'm actually surprised by how tired I feel. I think it was all the walking around under the hot sun. Why must it be so hot, why?
I'm referring to the finale of Season 1 of Doctor Who. Rambling is behind the cut )

a. List seven of your habits/quirks or seven facts about yourself.
b. Tag seven people to do the same.
c. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say you tag 'whoever wants to do it.'

On to the meme )
I have three rules when catching up on TV shows.

1) Don't go looking in Wikipedia for spoilers (I always break this one about halfway through).

2) Don't write fanfic before you've watched everything (I'm better with this one, but it has been known to happen).

3) DON'T, under any circumstances, watch more than one show at a time, because else I'm going to get hooked on two different new things and I'll want to see them both at the exact same time and I'll be pining for one as I'm watching the other, which always happens to me.

I've been pretty good about keeping to this rule lately. I watched Heroes, then the first season of Dexter, then all of Alias. But now what do I do? I start watching Dr. Who and the second season of Dexter. AT THE SAME TIME. *head desk* So now I want to watch them both, at the same time. It's a really good thing that I only have five episodes of Dexter left, cause else I'd be really going nuts.

I also want to look for Dr. Who fanfiction now, which would be pointless since I've only seen six episodes and I'd be spoiling myself all over the place, but I always get the urge to read stories very quickly after I get into something new. I'm restraining myself. For now.

I woke up in a good mood today. Like, a really good mood. The only reason I got out of bed was because it was noon already, but I had the nicest, sleepy buzz. It remained throughout a couple of little annoyances, but has finally been bested by a stomachache. Damn.

I also just discovered that one of the scenes of the OT3 fic was somehow not saved when I put the fic in my flash drive. Now I don't trust the program I used to write it (it was free, anyway, but it was working so well), so I'm probably gonna have to pay for one, which I don't want to do, but there's no way I can do this on Word. I have 54,000 with chapters and sub-chapters and it's just madness. At least the scene I lost wasn't briliant or anything. It was just a connector scene, but important all the same, so I'm going to have to do it again. *sigh*

In other news, I started watching Dr. Who yesterday. Yeah, I know I said I was going to watch Dexter, but I already had Dr. Who in my Netflix queue, so what the hell. I'm not sure about it yet. I don't usually like "family oriented" kinda stuff. It's almost a little too cheesy for me, but I love Christopher Eccleston, so we'll see.
You know how I just posted that Sark picture. Well, now I keep staring at it and can't concentrate on my writing. I have a bit of a laugh attack. I get those sometimes. I'm sure it'll go away soon enough. I've also been struck by this freakish, out of nowhere, Adam/Sark bunny. DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT. I'm too obsessed for my own good, I swear.

Instead, what am I doing? Looking at David Anders pictures. Because he's too damn gorgeous and I can't look away.

I've also just finished watching Tinman. It's wonderful! The sets and the costumes and the stroytelling and just everything is magnificent. It's a brilliant retelling of the Oz universe, which I loved as a child. I always wanted to read the whole series, but the bookstores only had very few, if any at all, so I only read five or six. I highly recommend it (the movie, but the books are great, too).

There's a moth outside my window. It keeps fluttering about the screen, unsatified with its perch, still only for a few moments before it shivers away again.
