I got my results for exams back. Passed everything, which was good. Even had my Impaired Performance accepted, due to Ms. Suicidal pulling shit the night before exams, which is even better. But that means that Uni is well and truely done for the year and I am home free!

Have been spending most of my time playing Star Ocean: The Last Hope. Created by the same people that made Final Fantasy, it is such a pretty game. Makes my inner science geek wibble in horror, yes, but pretty. It doesn't have much of a fandom, which is a shame, because I was so looking forward to reading fanfiction. Maybe I'll have to start writing some of my own.

Study? What study?

It's exam time again, and, of course, there are far more interesting things to do. Like post to LJ despite having actually nothing to say and y'know, this thing being practically dead anyway. Yes, I am a fickle beast.

On the other hand, I feel the faint stirrings of fandom rising within me. I brought Infinite Undiscovery for my brothers birthday, then spent about a week playing xbox nonstop so I could clock it, only to start again on hard mode. It is a gorgeous game. Capell is love. Flute playing, hero look alike, cowardly love. I despair of the fact that the entire FFNet section is two pages long and seems to have a single goodfic.

Add to that, I've rediscoverd Sky High. Or rather, my sister discovered it and dragged me back in kicking and screaming squeeing. Who doesn't love campy, disney, superheroness? I keep holding out, but there are fics tumbling around in my brain and I suspect they will end up on FFNet before the week is out.

Which, wow, its been a while since I sat down and wrote something. Tsk tsk. Maybe its a good thing. Just not for my grades. XD

8am lectures on a Monday morning are University's way of saying 'Welcome to the real world. It hates you.' -_-

Paul: You punch like a girl!

Me: *looks down* Uh, yeah. Coz I am.

Paul: No, I mean a proper girl.

Me: Keep on digging...

So Australia was awesome. We went to the Whitsunday Islands, staying the first night at Airlie Beach, and the next few days at a resort on Long Island. Long Island was amazing, the resort is the only one on the island, and kinda small, but very nice. I wasn't so impressed with Daydream Island (which is supposed to be the nicest of the resorts), we didn't stay there but we did did spend the day there. The coral beaches are pretty but unfriendly and it was very windy all over the island. Most of the time the weather was nice and warm, especially compared to the cold, wet, windy climate of home. Even if its winter over there, it still felt like summer. T-shirts and shorts the whole time. It was a bit windy though, which made the boat trips a bit ... interesting.

We went Ocean Rafting one day, which was fun. Kinda like a speed boat, you get very wet and travel at high speeds. They took us out to Whitehaven beach, which is amazingly pretty. The whitest of white sands, soft and cold. Something like 98% silica and 6 km long. The whole place looks like something out of a postcard. Another day we went sailing on the Camira which is this fantastically futuristic looking purple sailing boat. Again, we got very wet, but it was a lovely day. And we also went out to the Great Barrier Reef. Rebecca went scuba diving, but I didn't, but the glass bottom boat and and semi-submersible were awesome. We saw sea cucumbers and sea turtles, and all kinds of corals and fish.

The Cruise Whitsundays people were fantastically helpful, especially considering that the travel agent we dealt with before going was shocking (not that we discovered that until we got there and found we didn't have the right vouchers or iternary). But yeah, everyone was really helpful and pleasent and we had a great time.

My hallmate is a fucking trainwreak. Seriously. It's 2pm on Monday, she's drunk as hell, possibly overdosed on sleeping pills, stumbling and slurring. I don't trust her to go down the stairs by herself. And she wont listen to reason. What the hell am I supposed to do?

So my sister bought Final Fantasy XIII the other day. It makes me squeal like a fangirl. I fully and utterly admit to being a casual, yet snobby, gamer. The only games I've every (that I can think of right  now anyway) played right to the end are Knights of The Old Republic I and II. So my vices are storytelling RPGs more that shoot-em-ups. And boy oh boy, does FFXIII deliver. I love the movie clips and the story! Oh, the story! I can't believe that its been so long since I've read, watched or played an utterly new canon in which I know nothing! I'm one of those people who read spoliers before I even consider buying something, so I know damn well whats going to happen. But oh, shiney new newness. I <3 you!

Bearing in mind that I haven't finished it yet..Spoilers under the cut!Collapse )

For the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fans on my flist:

Fiordichthys slartibartfasti



Bidenichthys beeblebroxi

Are actual species of New Zealand fish. Those silly, silly researchers. XD
