 I have decided that my plan for this year (and life in general) is 'do things and be excited about them'. So far, I'm doing quite well.

1. I participated in a Big Bang for the first time ever, which was pretty dang scary but also exciting! I made two fanmixes (my first ever!), and I'm super happy I managed to meet the deadlines without too much panicking or disaster. My fun was dampened a little by my quietly failing out of The Mentalist fandom at the moment, which is a kind of inconvenient thing to do when you're participating in the Mentalist Big Bang, but gosh has the show become tedious. I stopped watching about two weeks ago and unfollowed a lot of The Mentalist tumblrs, and while I feel slightly sad about it (it used to be my favourite tv show! D:), I'm also kind of relieved I can continue failing out of fandom now that the Big Bang is done and over with.

2. I watch both series 2 and series 3 of Doctor Who in January! I HAVE SO MANY SAD FEELINGS ABOUT THE ENDING OF SERIES 2 AND SO MANY AWESOME FEELINGS ABOUT MARTHA. But Rooose. Rose will always be in my heart. Because.


ROSE AND NINE FOREVER. (I don't know okay. I love them much more than I expected to and I still miss them GOD I MISS THEM SO MUCH.)


Okay, sorry, back on track. Martha. Martha omg Martha. She really is kind of crappily treated by the writers, but she is still absolutely fabulous. She's so clever and strong and TRAINING TO BE A DOCTOR. So there. There was so much fabulousness in series 3! I absolutely adored Human Nature/The Family of Blood because it was basically ALL ABOUT MARTHA AND HOW AWESOME SHE IS. So I'm a little sad to see her go, but I'm also looking forward to finally seeing Donna again. DONNA. AMAZING DONNA. 

(PS: Blink = best Doctor Who episode ~ever, y/y? I WANT SALLY SPARROW TO BE A COMPANION. OR TO HAVE ANOTHER CAMEO. ANYTHING. JUST GIVE HER BACK TO ME.)

3. I sat my written Abitur exams in German, English, and History! (Yeah, I know. Priorities. Doctor Who is definitely above this on my List of Important Things in Life.) I wasn't really worried about them a lot in the first place, but I'm still glad they're in the past now, especially since I have a feeling they all went exceedingly well. :D :D :D I have about a month of school left, and I still have to pass my oral exam in biology, but the way things seem to be going, that's going to be a breeze. I CAN'T WAIT TO MOVE OUT AND DO THINGS ABOUT WHICH I WILL BE VERY EXCITED. I applied for a summer job at my dad's company in Paris so I won't laze around all summer waiting for uni to start and hopefully make some money instead. I haven't heard back from them yet but if this works out, it should be absolutely awesome. \o/ Ooh, and speaking of that...

4. I still need to decide when to go to London. It'll probably be some time in April/May, and I yet have to inform my aunt and uncle that I plan to invade their house around then, but if you have any preferences/suggestions/whatever, THIS IS THE TIME TO TELL ME. WHEN SHOULD I COME TO LONDON. I WANT TO MEET ALL OF YOU BECAUSE I LOVE YOU. :D?

I HAVE A THING I THINK YOU SHOULD DO AND BE EXCITED ABOUT.

:)

Congratulations for finally watching the amazingness of Blink! :D

Lol, the advert at the bottom of the page was 'come visit the culture of Britain! Only $800!' over a picture of some bagpipe men.

Because we all know that's what Britain's really about! xD

I would love to come to Memphis, PR, I really would, BUT IT'S SO GODDAMN EXPENSIVE. D: STUPID FAR-AWAY-NESS AND ITS IMPLICATIONS OF HAVING TO TAKE A PLANE.

I'm glad you got your pieces done for the Mentalist Big Bang! I did not ... because my author never sent me my story :/ Which kind of sucked. On the other hand I got SUPER busy in late January and early Feb, so I might not have had time to do it, even if she had gotten it to me. I know what you mean about fading out of the Mentalist fandom a bit. I recently unfollowed a bunch of Mentalist tumblrs too. However, I am still watching the show. Last week's episode was pretty good- better than they have been, anyway. It featured Grace, which was really nice.

Oh no, that really sucks! ): I'm sorry it didn't work out.

I might resume watching at some point since watching several episodes in a bunch usually makes me like them more but IDK. I love Cho/Summer so I considered to keep watching just for their fabulousness, BUT THERE JUST ISN'T ENOUGH FABULOUSNESS TO CANCEL OUT THE CRAPPINESS ATM. Anyway, GRAAAAACE. <333

I actually prefer watching a couple episodes in a row too. And I feel like they did show a bit more Cho/Summer kind of recently? Idk, maybe you saw it already.

YES COME BACK TO THE UK!!! May is warmer? Obvs. But April might be easier for people at uni to be free to meet up, since Easter is April 8th this year? IDK whatever. Doesn't matter to me. Ssh, just come.

It is so wonderful watching you watch Doctor Who and loving it so much :'D Did you manage to find Voyage of the Damned yet? I'm so glad you love everyone so much, Rose and Martha and Nine and Ten and... Jack? Everyone loves Jack right? OK, cool. Yay!

I don't really know anything about the Mentalist, but big congrats on your Big Bang, and doing it without massive stress! Go you!

Yes, I thought April might be more convenient for people at uni too. How long is Easter break though? I don't think I could make it earlier than towards the end of the month, but I'm not really sure about much of anything yet. :D APART FROM THE FACT THAT I WILL. COME. TO LONDON. AND HUG YOUUUUU.

omg how did I neglect to mention Jack in my post? BLESS JACK. BLESS JOHN BARROWMAN AND HIS THIGHS. Doctor Who is so much fun! Now that I know what I've been missing out on, I feel really sad for past!bran, lol.

Thank you! Big Bangs! They are fun! I SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN MORE OF THEM. (Only now I'm scared that will result in my failing out of that particular fandom. :D)

Oh, and I didn't find a link to Voyage of the Damned. All Christmas specials seem to have been ~purged from the internet. I'll probably end up buying the DVD because TITANIC. CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. DOCTOR WHO. I think those are valid arguments in favour! :D

I will contemplate the possibility! Right now my priorities are, in order, ish: roof over my head, car payments, food, other bills, getting my face fixed, getting clothes that aren't falling apart...

I have high hopes for the future though! Hooray job offer!

Fair point. But one day, we will roam the streets of London together! In clothes that are not falling apart! How's that sound, eh? :D
