    NaNoWriMo 2013

    I'm still ahead. Which is good! Because I think this year I've got a better conception of the whole story, and I've planned out large sections of it into chapters before writing which means I have a continuous stream of chapters to write. So I don't have to think about what I'm writing. I've...

    NaNoWriMo 2013

    it's okay! if you don't have enough words, just write as many words as you can. nano is really about getting more words on the paper than you usually do. don't get disheartened, just sit down and write. because you enjoy writing, even if you think you hate it atm.

    I think it is, but it also depends who's giving it to you. The Cardiff exam guidance lists it as PASS but maybe on the degree they call it an ordinary.

    UK degree classifications go like this: first class honours, (upper) second class then (lower) second class honours, third class honours, pass, fail. My 2:1 is ~= to 3.33 - 3.8? GPA in the US, I think.

    The interview went well, or at least I thought it did; they didn't offer me the place. But on the plus side I graduate with a 2:1 so that's pretty cool. Because of the depression they're going to let me resit some exams to see if I can get a first. But the 2:1 is pretty good anyway so!

    Would you like to be famous or...?

    I fully intend one day to be the Prime Minister of the UK (yes, Scotland either comes back or doesn't leave at all but everyone's happy) who spearheads the full integration and political union of the EU, leaving my post only to become the EU President. So I'll take both options, Bob.

    Adventure Time

    It's so dark. Lemongrab is deeply disturbing and makes me feel uncomfortable, which is great. Also I love LSP.

    Would you like to have children?

    They cost a lot and I think they're only really useful if you're going to grow old and die. I'm optimistic that those two things won't happen to me so I don't need children. I'll just get a puppy.

    The QUILTBAG Club (formerly the LGBT club)

    We're totes going to get gay marriage. it's still unequal though because gay couples have no consummation requirement nor is adultery automatically grounds for divorce. and gays can still get civil partnerships yay rights!
