PSA: I haven't fallen off the face of the planet...

but I have more or less shifted my focus to my other livejournal at hexicode. It contains mostly fannish stuff (although I woefully fail at actually posting fic there) and info relating to my various online activities. So if you want to know what I have been up to, check it out sometime :-) I don't post very often, but I do update there. I will keep this journal around, not least because its a permanent account, and I'll probably also post the occasional update.

In other news, I'm currently on break from uni and have taken on a private editing/proof-reading gig. My marks for the last academic year came out earlier this month and while I'm not completely happy, they aren't a disaster by any means. One 'pass' and one 'pass with merit'. I was hoping for two 'pass with merit', but one can't have everything. Not that it'll matter in the bigger scheme of things: depending on the type of work, I can work maybe 2 hours a day tops, less if it involves significant interaction with other people and it's going to be near impossible to find a job accommodating that. I try not to dwell on that too much since there is nothing that I or anyone else can do about it anyway.

Bro is getting married in Hong Kong in two days' time. Sis is there right now and will stay until after the wedding. She is the only one of the family who will be there for the wedding, but we could only afford the trip for one person (Bro managed to link the trip to attending a conference, so the university where he's doing his PhD paid for his plane ticket), plus the parentals have no time off anyway.
