SO BLOW ME

- Got into Murdoch/Kaplan's Bachelor of Psychology! 

- Might also apply to British Council's teaching courses to pass the time.

- Need to get a job!

- Need to write more.

- James Cook University is having their open day tomorrow! sob so much for my free time this weekend.

- 66/100 icon slots filled!

- I said this on my lj, but I fucking love Supernatural.

- Watched Prince Caspian! Which I enjoyed! I really do like what the movies have done with the books, because face it, as much as I loved the books, character development/substance wasn't very strong in the first two (but great in the Dawn Treader, so if Hollywood fucks that one over, I'll never forgive them for it :D). Reepicheep was suitably badass, Peter the prick was delightful, Edmund was adorable and I really wish I could like Susan more but I just can't seem to.

- One of the things that I thought about recently and it used to crop up in fandomsecrets a lot was the argument about westerns playing eastern characters/countries/etc. And I talked about this with a few people about how bizarre it was to me. I'm from the East! I've lived my entire life in the Easter hemisphere! Yet, I am more inclined to playing Western characters. To be fair though, I had a strong anglicized background which ostracised me from my peers for about... a good twelve years of my life. I have lived a life being a part of both worlds and never truly understand either one completely. I wonder what that says about me....

- Gosh, DW giving me paid time was a great ploy. :( I want to update every hour because of my new icons.

Mine too! Caspian and Dawn Treader were my favorite books too, so I loved that they decided to film them as well :DD

You know who else I loved? Puddleglum!

Well, you wouldn't want to go to the one in Australia as it is in Townsville. You want to come to Brisbane, where the cool kids (aka me) live!

I very nearly ended up working there, and to be honest I'm glad I didn't get the job. It got flattened by a cyclone shortly after I was rejected as a judge's associate so clearly it had it coming for me, and was just pissed off I wasn't coming!

COME TO BRISBANE we have three awesome unis and infrastructure and stuff. AND ME.

Poor little Cyclone ... whatever its name was. There are so many that annihilate Townsville, I forget what they're called. I know it wasn't Larry, that was the year before.

IT ALSO HAS BEACHES. AWESOME BEACHES.

We have rainforests. Close enough.

Hey, it's still something to celebrate. ♥

Yeah, in the end expecting the movies to be faithful to the books is kind of pointless.
