On Frabjous Days

So University life starts back tomorrow, and I'm in panic work mode. I've managed three of five chapters of an Italian novel. So far, so good. I get the gist, so that's what they're getting - gist. I've got everything I need this week printed out, and the sun is shining. Remixes on the stereo (read: Spotify). Cider about to go in the fridge. Barbecue on the cards for tonight. In short: it's going to be epic.

I don't have much to offer in the way of a blog post though. I've managed to fill my cupboards to bursting with only £50; I've got a clean room, smelling like "Cotton  Breeze" whatever that is; I've got a bottle of Gin almost polished off, a bottle of Whiskey to work through; there are only three weeks left of work, and I am happy as can be for some reason. I can't put my finger on it. I know there are still things missing in my life (it's the usual thing. I like to keep reminding myself, otherwise it's a bit pointless making absurd "Te prometo que no voy a coger un chino..." style promises. Despite all that, I am the happiest I've been in a long time.

The big news is, however, that I'm looking at a nice wardrobe reshuffle. I quite like being able to open my wardrobe and see all my shirts in there, but I need more casual ones I feel. I have quite a few really nice 'evening' and 'formal' shirt/tie combos, but you can't wear them to lectures without looking like a tool. A nice undershirt/shirt combo would really make my summer - so, tomorrow I'm heading into town with a bit of money and picking up some things I've had my eye on. Sort. It. Out. Non?

But, with all this student loan money I feel like I'm burning holes in my pockets. I've worked out I can spend up to £160 a month without hitting 'empty'. So, I'm aiming to do that, or less. But, there are some things on my mind: I've been on deviantArt in some form or another for 5 years or so. I think I'm due a membership, no? But, I don't seem to use it enough to warrant one. I suppose that can wait til June or July and then, even if I don't use it much in Italy, I know I can cancel it when I'm back from there (and it's only £20 for a year). The more important membership would be Plaid Cymru - I'm fed up of touting my political allegiances and not having something to show for it. Filling out a form doesn't seem like fun however - maybe I'll get onto it though.

Speaking of memberships: the Spanish-Italian Society is re-electing. Obviously, I can't stand for anything this year, but, I'm considering getting back into it in 4th Year, applying for President or something. I feel like I could add a few more things to my CV. We'll see how Lleida and Pavia go, though. Maybe by the end of it I'll hate Italian and Spanish. Maybe I won't.

I'm dry now. I have nothing else I can pull on to make this any longer. So, roll on BBQ. Happy days, etc!
