new lj layout! electrumqueen
well, it's not technically new (i think it was uploaded in 08?) but the stylesheet on the one i'd been faithfully using died and i was like, eh, let's dig through mems for layouts. i definitely remember bookmarking more than one, but.
in other news: i'm done with the semester! i wrote two essays yesterday, neither of which was stunningly brill but definitely better than some of the crap i handed in second year and now i'm sitting in an airport about to fly to prague. (well, montreal then zurich then prague, but.) i'm hungry and the heels on my shoes need to be patched and there is a small child who likes to climb on people (he's adorable, idmind) and i'm trying to work out how to tell several people i don't think i want to live with them next year. UGH being an adult is SO hard.
i'm cutting myself slack for now though given that i've had maybe eight hours of sleep out of the past 48. the second essay i wrote was kind of a dream: i panic woke up at 4am on monday, typed half of it madly till 6, then fell back asleep. when i looked back over it i was pleasantly surprised, lol. i'm hoping none of my snarky notes to self remained in the paper because if they did i'll look SO unprofessional (though i look unprofessional anyway because i AM.) argh.
hmmmm. idk what to do on family trips ever. i'm so bad at randomly talking to people / weeding out tourists. i did back nice clothes and i think i look friendly enough so hopefully people will want to talk to me! crossing my fingers AND toes.
