You are now watching Voldemort. Don't let me get to Hogwarts...

Now is the time to panic, and I feel justifiably so.

Eventually my dissertation hysteria will sort itself out. I'm sure of it. I think.

But let's not talk about that right now. I'll just panic more.

To be honest, there's not all that much to talk about at the moment. I'm calling this a welcome distraction from all the things I should be doing.

But there's a lot of exciting things happening soon. So I'll just get on with those...

Like a warm drink it seeps into my soul.

Naturally, I should be researching and writing and planning and note-taking and doing all manner of useful things.

However, I have Fresher's Flu and therefore have a very substantial reason to feel rather pathetic and not get out of bed. It seems to be rather brutal this year, and coupled with a twice-dislocated knee that means using crutches to get around everywhere at the moment, this has not been the best of starts to my final year at university.

Which is daunting enough in itself.

It all feels rather strange at the moment, because I'm only in for two days a week so I don't yet feel like I've properly returned to University just yet. I have almost finalised my title for my dissertation, and already have a plan in mind for my Independent Film Practise module, so things are looking to be less stressful than I was initially anticipating. Ask me in a few weeks and I'm almost certain that will not be the same outlook.

I have had a short burst of very good fortune recently, and as such I am waiting for my new camera to arrive. It is a very fancy, very exciting and very brand new camera, so I am quite filmmaker-nerdy over it at the moment. It should be here within the next few hours. Most exciting.

I'm not entirely sure what else I have to write about at the moment. That's new anyway.

I am still seeing a very wonderful someone, which is still making me terribly girly at times. And incredibly happy. And I am planning on it continuing to do so.

As President of the Harry Potter Society: Order of the Ruskin, I wish you a good day, and remember:

                   It does not do to dwell on dreams
                                                                And forget to live...
