Long Overdue Update  
Well, well, well. It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been away from the internet - and life - for quite a bit now, thanks to my job taking over my life. But I won't be working there next year, so I hope my grades and social life will improve marginally.

Okay, so rl-update?

Guess who has a boyfriend? And guess who's had a boyfriend for almost six months now but somehow never got around to mentioning it online? Well. It's all very weird and surreal for the both of us. Especially since we each only gave it 1-2 months and, well, here we are, steadily approaching the six months line. We already agreed to get absolutely wasted should we actually make it that long. And yet this relationship is oddly... easy. I mean, he gets on my nerves like hell sometimes but it's kinda like... hanging out with a good friend who you also get to screw? Which is not bad. And I'm really surprised at how well all this is working out, especially since there was no "butterflies" phase in the beginning and now we're even talking about perhaps moving in together one day :o I still have this OH HOES! STABLE RELATIONSHIP! MUST RUN!!! instinct in the back of my head, but the fact that our "relationship" is rather unconventional at best helps keep it down.

As far as my job at LUSH is concerned, I won't stay on after my contract expires. I loved the work itself, don't get me wrong, but there were some things happening that were just not cool. Anyway, I'm glad I'll have more time for myself and uni, especially since I'LL BE TAKING ON A THIRD LANGUAGE NEXT FALL - ITALIAN! WOOT!

Oh, and I already posted about most of my English department being mad Merlin fans, right? Now it gets even better: turns out my boyfriend is is a mad Hugh Laurie fan (and fancies him a bit too XD) and after watching THREE CLIPS of A Bit of Fry and Laurie texted me "Could it be that Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry had an affair once?" This is so far beyond awesome that I can't even begin to describe it. He also knows i have the hots for Oscar Wilde and Stephen Fry even if I haven't quite explained how I feel like Stephen Fry saved my life and I am therefore deeply indebted to this wonderful man.

What else? Arabic still sucks. Well, not Arabic itself, I still love it and everything, but my teachers are CRAZY. I'm taking private lessons from a wonderfully patient Saudi Arabian guy who motivates me to see this shit through until I get more qualified teachers.

The bipolarness has been somehow in check lately, some of it due to my work (I apparently need stress to be happy) but mostly due to my boyfriend, who turned out to be surprisingly mature and supportive - or, well, he tries, but it's a genuine attempt.

Other than that? Idk. Oh, I got a shiny new camera for Christmas, a Canon Powershot and an interactive QI dvd. Sadly, even though we ordered on December 3rd something went wrong and it hasn't arrived yet :(
