crypticgirl: Inara and Mal from Firefly in a shot from a dancing scene (romance)
( Jul. 19th, 2009 10:42 pm)
It's been a while since I've written, but new relationship foo plus holidays to Daylesford plus more new relationship foo plus work have made me lazier than usual. Difficult, I know, but there you have it.

Relationship wise, things are going well. Skippy and I have been doing a lot together. Much of it is stuff I've not done in ages or never done before: bowling (I still suck), movies, going to the football and playing various games with his friends. This includes the beginnings of teaching me to play Magic, which I'm enjoying but finding a little difficult to follow because it relies pretty heavily on knowing what cards other players have out on the table. Since there's a huge number of cards (we're talking tens of thousands), memorising the decks is not a good strategy. I'll work something out.

The games stuff in particular has been with a group of his friends who all play together. I haven't introduced him to many of my friends yet; my circle of friends is (a) all across the damn country and (b) not really a cohesive group even when you get down to the people in one city. So that will be a slow process.

1. Last Friday I decided to take whatever steps I need to in order to defer my Masters because I'm burnt out. I kept looking at the last two assignments for this semester and feeling... dull, and uninspired, and panicky and tired. So I'll be failing those classes and putting this on hold for as long as I need to take in order to feel like things are balanced enough for me to do this.

2. Last Saturday I met.. let's call him Skippy, for reasons which will be apparent only to he and I. Another name would be "my boyfriend". :) More details to follow, when I've dealt with the third factoid.

3. I need more sleep. *yawn*
