OI you lot!
Yes it's me, typing away on a free account while some peeps in the corner try to get to me to give my liver away after I'm done using it. I don't think you want it, peeps. Really.
Let's get right to the thick of things- fandom. I miss it and I want back in. Pirates and Potter. So does anyone who might still be alive on my flist know of any likewise still alive fic and icon comms of the same fandoms? Livejournal has changed their searchy things since I've been gone and it's making it ruddy hard to find things.
Oh - and hello to you!! Major life change? Do let me know. I'm checking some of my flist but as you can imagine I'm not really going to get much past skip=30000.
Sorry about that last post. You can't say it didn't widen your culinary knowledge! :D
I'm in a small jar of vinegar-preserved cucumbers. I've got 2 months to get at least 2 grand together, 3 months to get 4. While I believe this is perfectly possible, I'm starting to get nervous about this UK trip.
I leave on the 27th of May. I need to have my ticket price by the 1st- that's about 2000. Fine, no biggie. I've only got 400 so far but hey- we're gettin' there. I'd LOVE to stay for about 6 months, but to do that I need a visa and to get one of them I need at least 3 grand in my bank when I leave. Also I kinda need new glasses before I go (300+) and the dentist ($trillion) AND I think we need new passports ($200).
My bigger problem is that I've not organised anything, and as far as I know Mum hasn't either. I don't know where we're going or what we're doing except that we'll be based in Bristol. I've been told that public transport over there is mind-bogglingly expensive and the sooner you book the cheaper it is. HELP ME.
The biggest problem I believe I face is Mum- she's paranoid that we're not going to be able to afford it and her defeatist mindset (in addition to the long list of seemingly insurmountable dollars above) is starting to wear off on me. I believe the two biggest factors to achieving something are energy and attitude- you need alot of both. Mum doesn't have that. When faced with difficulties her style is to sit in the corner and mope, where as my style is to methodically and persistently kick it till it blows up. It might not be the best approach, but it gets results.
SO - I need 5 grand in 2 months in order to do all the above.
How hard can it be? *puts kicking boots on*
