So, this year I will have been on livejournal for 10 years. I began writing in my final year of high school and March will be the 10th anniversary of the journal's creation. I will try and update more in this special anniversary year- I've become increasingly rubbish at the blogging thing but I want to stay here (in spite of all the design fuckery) since this has been my home for so long.

Christmas passed without anything major happening. Best present was an external hard drive with 1 TB of space, so I've happily dumped my mp3 collection there, as well as old uni assignments. Also received a metric ton of confectionary from my work colleagues (who don't know me well enough yet, so obviously chocolate is the answer) and 'Lost Japan' by Alex Kerr, which I will probably take with me on my trip (which is in less than a month now, omgomgomg). There was also a Myer gift card, which I will probably use to get an iPod touch, seeing as old Cicero is starting to give up on me after 4 years of solid use.

I feel like 2011 was been something of a mixed blessing for me. Inadvertantly becoming part of Australia's mining boom has been very good, but I do not see myself staying in the job in the long term. My desire to do postgrad has not dimmed in the slightest, but now I'm starting to wonder whether I should compromise and do a masters instead. The thought of giving up on the doctorate crushes me, but I have this horrible current of 'MUST EARN $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$' running through my head alongside the postgrad thoughts. And then there's the this new (well, sort of new, the dating bit is the new dimension to our relationship) guy in my life and I have all the feelings about that too. So! Hoping 2012 drops some more fortune in my lap.

Mostly though, I'm all about new Sherlock today. 40 MINUTES TO GO BEFORE I CAN WATCH IT.
