Namely, said I'd be back, then didn't hang around. Funny how that goes.

It seems that every time I post here, I've either matured or changed in some way. It's only been a year, and already things have changed.

For a start, I'll be graduating in November, with a BA (Mod) in Computer Science. That, by the way, is a good thing. Six years of hard slog (well, four years of hard slog and two years of dossing) have resulted in me finally graduating from my degree course. It's so wonderful. I'll probably cry on the day or something.

I've read a whole lot more, and it's wonderful. I'd recommend Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy with no hesitation, as well as Jim Butcher's Alara series. The new Dresden Files novel is well worth a look if you're into the series. I'm also in possession of a Kindle at last, and it is wonderful. I'll put up a journal entry about my feelings concerning the Kindle vs books, but not now. With regards to the latest Dresden Files novel, I preordered it for my Kindle several weeks ago; the day it came out, it was delivered to my Kindle and I was debited the cost. At last, I can read ebooks without getting crippling migraines!

I finally shelled out and bought a DSi, and have been playing a lot of Pokémon recently. Namely, I've got about 20 more before I've caught EVERY Pokémon EVER. Including the new ones. That's 643 (I'm not counting several event Pokémon, since the game doesn't either).

I've finally given in and started LARPing. I'll be going to the Lorien Trust's Summer Moot next weekend in Derby. I've done some training, so it should be fun, whether my character survives the weekend or pops his clogs, like a friend's character did at the previous Summer Moot. I'll hopefully have some pictures to put up, or at least some interesting stories.

At last, I have fully embraced post-rock. Possibly my favourite group is Do Make Say Think, followed by Mogwai. I've also got into math-rock, with Battles (who are AWESOME), and And So I Watch You From Afar, who are from Belfast and thus pretty much local (they, too, are AWESOME). It's amazing how much I've got into the genre(s). NOTE: the track I'm listening to right now is by And So I Watch You From Afar, and it's called Don't Waste Time Doing Things You Hate. It is loud and incredible.

My sister's finally married her boyfriend of several years. Unfortunately, she's decided to have TWO weddings: a civil one in her husband's hometown of Magdeburg in Germany, and a Greek Orthodox one on the island of Aegina (which is famous for its pistachios. Yes, really). The first has happened (and Berlin is a lovely place; Magdeburg is also really nice, but very quiet), and the second is yet to; it'll be the day before my 24th. Considering that there'll be a large number of Greek relatives that I've not seen in my life there, it should be an interesting birthday.

Right, that's enough about me. Again, sorry for disappearing again after promising not to disappear after I last disappeared. I'll try harder to not disappear after saying I won't disappear this time.

Thanks for the :+fav: on [link] It's nice that old deviations are drawing attention like this!

I was browsin' your gallery for the features, and found it. I saw it had been faved, then found I hadn't. After berating myself, I faved it, then featured it.

It's totally worth it, and apologies for the enormous delay in the faving process.

True, but not much of an excuse, since I think I've seen it before now.
