More facebookiness

Well it's the autumn equinox today so I've decided today is a good day to set some goals for the rest of the year and just generally write about what I've been up to recently.

I've spent the last few months in a bit of a bubble. I'm not worried about my bubbleness really - I've made some friends through penpalling that I hope will be better friends than some people I've been friends with over the years and it's given me a chance to do some thinking. I've also got lots of reading done which is always a good thing.

I know I need some form of job at some point but I just don't think I'm going to get one right now. It's not that I don't want one - there just aren't any around. So I've made the decision to spend the next few months writing so I'll have three (hopefully) completed first drafts by December. That is if I actually focus on the writing rather than making sure everything is perfect first time round. Either that or I'll end up with two second draft because my mind is very focused on my pagan sci-fi novel and also my werewolf novel, which wasn't something I was planning on working on right now. If I do get anything finished to a standard I'm happy with I may post them somewhere, but I'm not sure. It depends on how I feel.

Today I sent off for the prospectus for the University of London's external courses. I'm pretty sure what I'm going to do though. It's a management and law degree. Nan seems to think my law degree is so I can go into law as a back-up but it's more because I like law. It's so interesting. I sent off for some books too, that I may need for my course if I decide to definitely go for it. I'm getting a couple on jurispudence and then a couple on the psychological aspects of management. It's all very cool really.

I'm still working my way through the first 20 Discworld books (and waiting for Reaper Man to turn up). That's fun. I like the Discworld. There is other stuff I want to read too but Discworld comes first. It's not like I haven't read the others at least seven times already.

Then there's my other books. I've got books on Hecate, Bast and Sekhmut, sensual aromatherapy, the creation of sacred space, shamanism, and all sorts of other stuff that I need to ready properly rather than flick though. I've also got a whole bunch of cards I need to start working with (anyone interested in what will be a very rubbish reading so I can start to connect to my oracle and tarot cards?)

I've also got to sort my room out again. What with things arriving through the post I have a lot of rubbish in front of my wardrobe so I can't actually get in it and there's books everywhere. I really need another few book cases but I really don't have the room for them so I shall have to find some other way of storing them. When I'm rich I'm going to have a library.

Apart from that there's not really a lot for me to do. Just listen to Aaron complain about me and generally waffle. I like to waffle.

I've just realised I haven't mentioned James once. There must be something wrong with me.
