Mostly about things to look forward to  
An update at long last. Somehow, I find myself updating my other journal more frequently than this one, probabhly because my fannish and internet life makes for more interesting writing than rl. Family life also isn't without its dramatics, especially since Sis is currently here. We just don't get along, she is very spontaneous and rather impulsive, and I prefer plans, lists and a fixed routine.

Today for example, there was talk of going to IKEA's and getting a new shelf for her place. If it was just her and mother who were going, I wouldn't so much care that she cannot seem to make up her mind, but as my presence will be required because mother doesn't want to drive back home alone after dropping the shelf and Sis off at her place. Yes, I am surrounded by phobics and excentrics, but you know what they say about casting the first stone...

In other, more pleasant news, I got my first assignment back on this year's course and to my surprise got 88%. It's the second highest mark I ever got at uni! Since then, there has been a small multiple choice quiz due, which except for two questions was pretty easy. Haven't gotten that back yet. Next assignment is due in about three weeks and I still have a load of studying to do until then as I haven't even started with the material on infectious diseases yet. So that's what I'll probably spend most of my time on this week, although I do hope to finish two fanfics which I've been working on those past few weeks.

I'm also getting better internet soon. Better upload speed to be exact. Looking immensely forward to that and hope that new cable modem and the access data I need will arrive sometime this week.

Bro is coming back tonight, something else to look forward to. He spent a month in China visiting his girlfriend. He can't have been too busy though there as he still managed to email me lists of stuff to download for him while he was away.

Nice to hear from you Fran! :) Your talk of getting better upload speeds reminds me of YEARS ago where you'd host (out of your own pocket) webspace to help us international fans get our Without A Trace fix. If it hadn't been for you I'd've never discovered Jack Malone and the rest! Though I did stop watching the later series but I have S1 and S2 on DVD and love them very much.

On a related note, I don't get on with my brother either, to the point where we don't speak. :(

Congrats on the good project mark!
