 I've still yet to sort my life out - at the moment I've exams and thus am undergoing the usual periods of manic revision and depression (though can I say I think I am improving my studying habits of last year and what do you know now we're being taught the facts of life as they stand, suddenly all the little facts and weird random equations make perfect sense. Or at least, the closest to perfect they could get at this present time and space). The webcomic and the novel are still pretty much where they were six months ago; the series of paintings needs to be finished quicksmart; I am still far too lazy for my own good.

Anyway. What a world we live in. The last I heard, China had bought up Spain and all of Studentkind were revolting. I'll admit I missed out on the latter. I think I had a lecture or something.

And then today, I read this:

The personal cost of fighting femicide in Juarez

Between Uni and Physics and my awful discipline, it seems I haven't been updating my journals (or reading any of my f-lists/reading lists shame be upon me) of late but have no fear! Soon I will be stuck in my bedroom revising the hell out of Electrodynamics and Chaos theories (non-integer dimensions wf? The worst thing is that it actually makes some sense...) and so I'll probably make up for it.

Of late I have actually been reading books - non-physics related books as well! First there was 'Love and Other Demons' which was absolutely gorgeous, written in the sparse style I love so much where the beauty lies in the mere observation of human behaviour rather than in the florid prose (which can be nice - you're talking to a Mervyn Peake fangirl here - but often distracting) describing it.

I then devoured 'Empress' by Karen Miller and am currently finding myself epically  (yes already! Not even 50 pages in as well) disappointed by 'The Riven Kingdom' which happens to be the sequel. I am determined to finish the entire trilogy but I have been warned not to get my hopes up, which is a shame as I got a real buzz reading 'Empress'. Like reading Abercrombie for the first (and second and third and...) I will definitely try out the 'Kingmaker, Kingbreaker' duology though, as that sounds entirely fantastic.
 
But more on that later when I don't have a lab report to finish.
