Take Which Doctor Who companion are you? (girls) today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
You're Romana!

Silly Doctor. It's adorable, really, how hard he tries. And he is pretty brilliant, you'll give him that. But he always seems to overlook the obvious--including the fact that he's not the only Gallifreyan onboard, thank you very much. You are always calm and collected, and more often than not wonderfully witty, in the face of adversity. The Doctor knows he can count on you, even when you infuriate him!

I've gone through my old entries and tagged them. I've posted very little in the past four years, so it was not too daunting a task. I was surprised to find I could recall the details of events I mention only briefly. There was surprisingly little cringeworthy stuff. Is it wrong of me to be amused by my own ramblings?

I've been feeling much better since I started university. I feel more confident and more independent. I am much less prone to becoming irritated by petty problems. I've learned how to study properly in a way that works for me. This has been a huge problem in my previous stint at university. Learning came easy in high school, so I never learned how to actually work. I still procrastinate sometimes, but I don't let it get so bad I have to change my name and move to another country to avoid the consequences (I'm still prone to the odd exaggeration though).

I'm keeping up with my reading, so my brains don't atrophy during the break. I did end up getting a biography of Caesar. After this though, I'm taking a break from Roman history for a while. There are still many books I'd like to read, but I want to get a head start on my reading for my next semester English courses. I've always meant to read Beowulf and Paradise Lost and finish The Canterbury Tales, but never quite got round to them. I'm pretty sure we will only be reading excerpts from them and I want to read them in full, which I won't have time for once the semester starts.

Still catching up on what happened in fandom during exam frenzy. I mostly mean the Doctor Who fandom. It's the biggest fandom I have, so there's a lot to catch up on and I was away from the fandom when the finale two parter aired. I wasn't happy about having to delay watching the finale, but I didn't want to risk getting too distracted. I've also started a selective rereading of the EDA's, though I'm not up to the read-along over at [livejournal.com profile] act_three. They're reading Shadows of Avalon next and I'm not reading that again. I'll probably join in after that.

Lastly, I'd like to say I love my cat. I cannot overstate the importance of this fact. I have other cats I feed (some live around my building, and some on campus) and I really like them all. But they are not as magnificent as my cat. Nothing and no one is. My cat is the most perfect creature in the history of the universe. Just thought I'd get it down in writing.

So OK, I've never done these before, but I'm pissed off enough to start now.

It's Passover. The Jewish holiday celebrating God's liberation of the jews from slavery in Egypt. To commemorate this occasion we are forbidden to consume bread (or pasta, anything made from dough really). It is also forbidden to come in contact with it or have it in the house. Other traditions include getting drunk, stuffed with food and teaching children about blackmail.

Err, sorry about that. I know I should be more tolerant about religion (especially as it's only a harmless holiday), but we have a bit of a problem with religious customs being forced on the (majority) secular population. No public transport on Saturdays, Rabbinate monopoly on marriages ext. Now they want to ban all forbidden products from being sold anywhere during the holiday, because of a court decision that states it's ok as long they are not displayed in public. Can't have that. Why can't people be content with living the way they see fit and insist on forcing everyone into the same lifestyle? How do they do it if they are a minority? Politics!

So anyway, I plan on celebrating with beer! I am also studying for my mechanics exam, which is my last for this semester. It is also the hardest one. My brain wants to cower in a corner. I have also been watching 'Life on Mars'. And Doctor Who series 21. And series 8. Also the current series and Battlestar Galactica. I multitask. The brain cries in pain and torment.

Back to Passover, it is also supposed to be a celebration of Spring and freedom (which doesn't agree with what's actually happening *grumble*). Freedom I like. So happy holiday to everyone, may you be free to do as you wish, have a beautiful Spring and an even better Summer and may the weather have mercy on us all.

82% Whoville Whero



If you scored:
0 to 25% - You may have caught the show on PBS a few times as a kid, but if you're a fan at all, it's of the new series.
26 - 50% - Not bad. You probably watched it a lot as a kid, and even caught the FOX film.
51 - 75% - Wow, you know your Synchronic Feedback from your Multi-Loop Stabilizer. Either that, or my biorhythms must be at an all time low ;)
76 - 100% - What William Shatner said to Star Trek fans applies equally to you... Maybe it's time to move out of mom & dad's basement. J/K :D You did fantastic!
