UPDATED: 20/8/2010

I remember when I first created this particular thread. Long time ago now, I suppose. Things have changed, I have changed and the world has changed so it’s just about time I told you all about the new me.

RAWR! (I still rawr, even in my old age)

In short, I am a 21 year old female who is currently enduring her second semester of a Master of Arts in Creative Writing. What does this involve? A lot of reading and a lot of writing, and I am learning all of the time. Before this I completed my Bachelor of Arts, during which I majored in English, Text and Writing and had sub-major (minor) in History, Politics and Philosophy. There are a lot of words in those titles. Basically, I did classes in English Literature, writing and some history and philosophy.

I am working in retail as a sales assistant although I am considering some volunteer work. My Master only runs part time so I have ridiculous amounts of free time on my hands, when I’m not doing chores or uni readings. I spend much of that time on the YWS, doing what little I can here and there.

My joy is situated in reading and writing. These two activities fill me with happiness. Ever present is music in my life, I think I may stop breathing if I couldn’t hear music anymore. I love to bake, treats and cakes are the most fun I have with in the kitchen, although I also enjoy cooking dinners and meals. I am more critical with novels and stories than I used to be – I expect standards that otherwise do not exist.

And that, I think, is all anyone need to know about such a fossil as I. If you have any questions, hit me up, I’m always happy to chat.

:lol: That pretty much made my day.

You seem cool. Your university classes actually do sound quite riveting, lol. I remember we were talking about something in each others guest books.... Oh yeah, a shared love for the movie Serenity. *high fives* So what's your favorite Firefly episode? Favorite character?

*grins* Hi 5 indeed!

Malcom Reynold is a gorgeous, moody, gorgeous man. Fav ep would have to be the last one, whose name escapes me at this second.

Yours?


And lol, I am an odd one, I know not how that made your day, but I'm pleased it it. :D

Character: Kaylee!
Episode: Our Mrs. Reynolds (I think that's what it's called... the first one with Saffron?)

^_^

As for that making my day... I'm just really easily amused. And I love it when people talk all properly and british-ly ("In which...proceed to...")

:D

Hey Penguin, we've talked before but I thought I'd drop by and see your post. :D

Living with four sisters must be both hilarious and suicidal....I thought having two was bad. Then again, you're the oldest... :roll:

Firefly? I have no idea what that show is about but Jenna once told me I look like Inara....

I have a question - what's your favourite ic-cream flavour?

Hehe, I'm not the oldest girl, second eldest... and there *are* four of us... but it's okay... We just argue a lot hehe. ^^

Inara is gorgeous, you lucky - gorgeous - girl. ^^


My favourite flavour is chocolate - of course! How could I live without it?
