So, Dreamwidth seems like an interesting prospect. Ever one for the bandwagon, I've hopped right on. It might be nice, now I'm graduating from Uni and therefore presumably becoming a grown-up, to start actually keeping a journal. And lj, much as I love it, I just don't think I'm ever going to be able to keep up a proper journal there. There's too much... stuff in association with it. Even though I constantly have a tab open for lj, it's not the same place that it used to be for me. Too many memories and friendships broken by time and entries whose meaning I don't remember anymore mean that I don't have the inspiration to update that I used to. To be quite honest livejournal tends to make me pretty sad/nostalgic. But Dreamwidth is kind of perfect in that it's somewhere completely new but at the same time it allows me to crosspost my updates to lj so that I won't be neglecting my flist and so that I won't have to feel like I've 'left' lj.

Here's to a new start, perhaps.

Now, unfortunately, I have to try and finish writing two 4000 word essays, one of which currently stands at 102 words, and one at 0, by the 8th and 11th of May respectively, and then revise for my final exam of my undergraduate university career, which is on the 15th of May.

And then redo my CV and go hunting through the urban wilderness for some form of employment. Hurrah.

I just want it to be the 16th of May. I can't wait until I don't have to think about University anymore. For some reason I am really excited for this whole employment prospect, even though I have no clue what I'm doing. I don't think I'm going to get any of the graduate trainee librarian jobs that I've applied/am applying for, which means I'm going to have to spend the next year working somewhere ridiculous like ASDA, and beyond that I don't know how I'm going to raise the £4000+ I need for my postgraduate degree. I just, I'm moving in with Joel and it will be maybe a relief to have a job and go to work and come home and curl up on the settee with a cup of tea in the flat I share with the man I love. Once I have found a job with which to pay the rent, it will be a few months of pressure-free living until I have to start thinking about my postgrad. It will be nice.

Unfortunately it means that I have absolutely no motivation to do any work because I am so close to the end that I can't concentrate on anything else. Hence the teeny tiny word count, and the fact that I am writing the longest journal entry I have written in a long time. And the fact that I just set up a Dreamwidth account, and the fact that I'm playing on Restaurant City on Facebook.

It's nearly my birthday. I'm going to buy myself, with help from my parents and hopefully grandparents, a new pc. I'm so excited. Justin, poor baby, is very tired and old. He wheezes a lot when I attempt to open more than three programs. I guess his time is over.
