A Belated 5 Things Sunday

It's been a long, long week... Hence why this is late =P  Next week I should be back into the swing of things! =3

1. The Obernewtyn Chronicles

I think this is my favorite series ever.  It's totally awesome, and the final book is coming out in November! So excited for that.  It's a post-apocalyptical fantasy, where those with "special abilities" (such as talking to animals and telekinesis) are exiled or burnt at the stake for having them.  It's Harry Potter-esque in the way that the books start as an easy read, and the later ones are designed for older-ish readers.  It's fabulous!  If you haven't read these books, you should!!  (Be warned though, the last book is... massive).

2. The feeling after handing in an assignment...
Yeah.  Since week 2 (it's currently week 6 in my uni calendar), I've had an assignment due every week - a presentation and assignments).  So the feeling that it's all over for two weeks is totally fabulous!  I might be able to do some crafting! YAY!

3. Angry Birds
Oh.  So.  Addictive.  <3

4. Facebook games
I've been playing Pioneer Trail (formally Frontierville) and MafiaWars, and I can't figure out why they're so amusing... Hehe...

5. Driving.
Last week I drove a lot.  When I say a lot, I mean a lot.  Just to be clear.  Hehe.  I find it seriously relaxing - the simple motions of changing gears etc is seriously relaxing!

...And going fast is fun.

Until next time,

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
