Whew~

Iiin case you haven’t noticed, there’ve been some changes around here. Hopefully for the better.

With that in mind, I want to bring back the uh… blogging, aspect… of this blog. I’ll try to make it interesting. 🙂 I’ll also be backdating in some art and possibly some blogs as well.

Oh, and I get to go and adjust all the links on the art pages. Fun times man, fun times.

Whoo! And Ow!

So I finallly climbed an actual mountain! Well, most of one. The climbing clubs’ traditional trip to North Wales was last weekend. And it was the wrong weather for actual climbing, so we went for a scramble up Tryfan instead. Pretty nice to start with, albeit hard work, I have a lovely picture of me sitting on the Cannon, about halfway up.

It did get a bit scary near the summit though because we were up in the clouds so it was wet and windy, so all the rocks were slippery and the wind was making a pretty determined effort to blow us off the mountain. So we were within about 50 metres of the summit when we decided things were getting too dangerous and found a way around and down the other side.

Reservoirs From Hobson Moor

Arnfield Reservoir and Bottoms Reservoir, from Hobson Moor. (Or somewhere in that general area, anyway.)

So after I finished my 24 hour blogathon yesterday I decided to go on a 7 mile hike with my dad and my brother, in a futile attempt to stay awake for the rest of the day.

This is one of my favourite pictures (and one of the first I took.) Edited to crop out a gate and to clear up the colours a little. =)

Exhausting walk, but enjoyable all the same, and I got to test out my hiking boots. =)

OMGFINISHED

I finally finally finally managed to pull together a plan for my Neo manga contest entry. *glee* Now I just hafta draw it up full size and neat, and post it off before Friday.

Right… best get to it then…

In other news, I went climbing the other day, for the first time in… about six months. And… I fail at teh climb, omg… I couldn’t even do the first move on this crag, it was like, the first good hold was a good 3 inches above my hand at full stretch and standing on the highest possible hold.

I was not impressed. And my fingers were all sore because all the callouses that had built up to protect them have basically gone, and… ow… yea…

Aaaand~ I’m finally making some progress on the essay-of-suck. So that’s a good start… I’d hoped to have it finished by this weekend, but we’ll see… =/

And my tablet’s bust. See, a few weeks back my mum was fixing my PC and she broke one of the USB sockets… and my tablet was plugged into said socket at the time… and it’s only now after I’ve spent weeks hunting for/re-installing the drivers that I notice the end of the cable is blocked with socket-bits.

Yey.

Still, maybe this will be that excuse to upgrade I’ve been waiting for.

Oh, and Deathly Hallows for the win! (Uh, potential comment-spoilers..? I guess. Consider yourself warned.)

OH! And, I saw the first two episodes of Heroes today. How cool is Hiro!?

Aaaand omguguys can we not be discussing the merits (or lack thereof) of the iPod. That was totally not the point of my last post. The bit about the iPod was like… a footnote, lol. (It’s fixed, by the way. Awesome-bf-Jimmi fixded it.)

Pass!

So I finally got my results the other day. The good news is that I’m through to the third year, assuming I can get this essay done. Of course that means I’ve got to start researching for my projects for next year and I have absolutely no idea how to do it.

And of course, there’s nobody I can ask… that would imply that the people in my class actually, y’know… talk to me. And I’ll probably get the “asking too many questions” spiel from my tutor. -_-

Bleh.

And my climbing trip got messed up by the weather. It rained… a lot… And we were going to go to an indoor wall but I have no money, so we couldn’t even do that. =/

I need a job. -_-

Oh, and my iPod is broken. D: It plays just fine, but I plug in headphones or speakers and no sound comes out. I am not a happy person.
