Whoever you believe in, confirmation today that he/she/it must exist! I just had almost six hours of exams - Chemistry AS Foundation Chemistry, Chains & Rings and How Far, How Fast this morning, History AS Votes for Women and The Road to Unification, Italy c.1848-70 this afternoon. My writing hand hurts but not in the bit that does typing, thankfully.
There wasn't a single nasty question all day! I was dreading the Unification of Italy but a favourabe set of questions came away that rewarded my somewhat frantic attempts at revision.

Today is my 3rd h2g2 birthday. It doesn't seem that long!
Well, I suppose there ought to be some sort of party with suitably inexhaustible supplies of and ...

That's my thought for the day, I guess...
Pointlessly and unnecessarily p**sed off...: Update!

Well, things have got worse and better since the original posting:
On the topic of my magazine: we got the new computer. It didn't work to begin with, but it's sorted now. The situation re: next edition remains unknown. The creation of the creative writing magazine is almost done - final pre-print session tomorrow. Student editor is convinced, but will his boss be equally pleased? Anyway, too late to change much now. We have limited access to the old machine and the new one can't read any of our old layout files.
I got thrown down some stairs Friday night. Not injured - apart from my pride. The other person is having a really hard time and is very, very heavy. No apology yet; not expecting one. Got so angry that I forgot a couple of deadlines, then got stressed again Saturday and resolved to drop my work and go home. Proceeded to spend most of Saturday afternoon getting home. Thames Trains' franchise has been taken on by First Great Western Link (snappy name, I know). Little has changed. Well, apart from the new logos everywhere, crudely painted/stuck on. Oh, and the fact that the staff at Oxford station have new uniforms - not that they're any better. And they still call it 'Thames Trains'. To add to the fun, Network Rail have celebrated the bank holiday weekend with masses of engineering works everywhere - including between Banbury and Leamington Spa, again. Wind up on a rail replacement coach, which spends almost 20 mins driving around Banbury side streets for no apparent reason.
But now, things are clearing up. I'm stressed, tired and behind with my work, but now I'm laughing again. *doing the happy dance* (apologies for the 'baseketball' reference...
