Well, my first exam is tomorrow.

If you've been wondering in the past week or two whether I've died, there's your answer. More or less.

It's not a decent excuse for the way I've completely neglected replying to comments and such, but there you have it. Oxford has a habit of making you believe that shouting "I have exams!" is the catch-all excuse for anything.

I'll catch up with everything and post a proper update at some point, but the next few weeks are going to be insane.

Wish me luck; I need all the help I can get...

Good luck good luck good luck good luck good luck break a leg, and watch out for those satsumas. There's always one stupid old satsuma. Who wants a satsuma?! XD

You'll be fine. You're brilliant, remember? A regular Time Lord, if I do say so myself.

I can't wait until it's all over and you've got lots of stories about Tortoise skin and exploding arthropods and fungi growing in classmates' ears from over studying. Actually, that sounds dangerous. Be careful! Goggles on! Everyone got their bananas?

Ha! Oh, Alex...I love how much you're obviously loving Doctor Who. It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. : )

Good Luck Cassie! I'm sure you'll do splendidly on all of your exams because you're just that awesome. How is your research going? I've meant to send you a nice, longer note for the past week now, but I wasn't quite sure if you were studying or not. Anyways, I wish you the best of luck, and look forward to your next "real" post :-D.

I actually haven't even started my research yet, because my research supervisor is back home in Greece right now. Heh, go figure, right?

But it's a good thing, I suppose, because it's given me the chance to enjoy my family's trip over here. And it sounds like you had an awesome Europe trip as well. :D

How's the rest of your summer been so far?

My summer (Europe notwithstanding) has been incredibly uneventful. The most exciting thing to happen recently hasn't even really happened yet, as I'm going to be going to the midnight showing of OotP on Tuesday, and then the B&N book party on the 20th. :-D

If you'd like to see some pictures from my trip back in May, they're at

How was your family's trip? I remember you saying that you were going to visit your ancestral was it?!?!

Ah! You saw the cliffs of Moher; I was there about a week ago. Isn't Ireland beautiful? I wish I could have had several more weeks there...

The trip was amazing, and it all seems like a fantastic dream now. Tulloch castle was so lovely, and my mom completely fell in love with it. She even bought a print of a painting of it.

As soon as I get my computer repaired, I'll be able to post all my pictures. : )

I just found out today that the switching back and forth from American to British power outlets may have fried the power-cord and drained my computer's battery; they're going to check over my whole computer to make sure there are no other glitches.

I hope to have it back and running perfectly within two weeks, so that's a relief...

You'll do splendidly, Abeja. I know you'll pass with your flying marks, as usual. :)

Bueno Suerte! Good luck! In Bocca Al Lupo! Although the Italian literal translation, in the mouth of the wolf, pretty much describes the situation I think the Japanese say it best: Ganbatte! Do your best! And knowing you, your best should be more than enough.
