There were so many positives in my life the last week. I passed my French Revolution course with 93.5 percent. Finally received confirmation that I'll be doing my third year Philosophy at University from October. I've had excellent fun on W.Com, and am reconnecting with some friends here. "Wdc 14th Birthday Masquerade Party [13+] is awesome. And I've been busy revising for my Social Psych exam... which I just sat in the middle of the night (it's online). All these things have helped keep me sane after the death of my beloved grandmother; she passed away on the 27th of August and was cremated last week.

My gran was the one person who's always loved me unconditionally, so she was very special to me. It doesn't help that only four months ago, I lost my grandfather, and only a month and a half ago, I lost a friend. To all those who have made me smile and even laugh the last few days, thank you. I appreciate it *Heart*.

I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that writing a coherent essay by hand, within the space of one hour, is pretty much impossible. Which is worrying, considering the upcoming three hours = three essays exam... Done the first draft of my test exam essay, which took me longer than an hour, is illegible and, well, it is indeed still a first draft *twitch*.

I wish you well; in college I 'aced' the essay exams but B's on the others. You have the information in your mind; just write and don't worry about the 'how'. I still laugh when remembering one final exam essay question about James Joyce's novel which I couldn't understand and the ques was "to review it 'from a liberal Catholic point of view"; Heck, a Southern Baptist trying to write about liberal Catholic!!" I got an A in the course; still don't know why. Just let the words flow even if 'illegible' to you.*Smile* Good luck.

Thanks everyone! Well, I finished it. Sending it out in the post tomorrow. It is so much easier to type, that's for sure. Especially because Word has spell check *Bigsmile*. And word count! I'm going to have to do a lot of practicing before my actual exam. This was an interesting test, because it highlighted the issues I need to address.

It's amazing how well you'll do once you start the exams. I always thought I was going to flunk all of my test in College, and always seemed to ace them - I know you will also because you're prepared :) Do as Jedi says - that's excellent advice. Eat a healthy breakfast, listen to some relaxing music beforehand and say positive affirmations about you acing the test, how easily the words will come to you, etc... It truly works! I know you'll do fine - I have faith in you *Bigsmile* *Heart*

A novel written by a friend of mine is available for free download at the moment. As I am one of the people it's dedicated to, I thought I would give it a plug *Bigsmile* Warning! It is definitely for adult readers. It's political, contains social comment, and those who do not approve of LGBT relationships may wish to stay clear. It's a very interesting read, though.

Today I turned nine here on W.Com! On to my teenage years. I wonder if I will start rebelling then and what form the rebellion will take. Lots of intentionally bad poetry? A sudden inclination towards Twilight fan-fiction? 42 Shades of Kit? *Shock*

Happy Birthday ~ 'Twilight' but pale glimmer to your vivid world of words
I actually liked reading twilight!
New story I'm working on, for the Tangent Universe contest - "Ties of the Past [18+]. It has a content rating of 18+. It's my first short story in a while, and I think I need to work on character interactions - gestures etc. I seem to keep writing that I/he did *this* and then *that*. Gah!

39 years of age. Only one year away from being a "woman of a certain age" *Shock*. Still, I am not about to turn into a cougar. I'm more of a lynx, really. Small, stocky and fluffy, and used to pretty miserable weather...

Hi Kittiara
So, I am back for a quick visit and learned that you sent an email.
I am looking for a spot to submit my short stories so others can read them
and tell me if they're good or not.
So, I may submit one this weekend, so you watch for it?

AArrrgh. Today (28th) is the day the longlist of the Orwell Prize will be announced. 140 entrants in the journalism section. Twelve slots for the longlist. I'm a complete newbie up against well-known writers. I know I don't stand a chance. So why do I keep hoping for a miracle? *Confused*
