I haven't posted anything on here for a while so I thought I'd write some stuff :)

I've been quite busy recently. I just got my results back from last semester and they were pretty good, the hight point being 84 in my stats exam. I'm currently deciding what to do for my research project in 3rd year. I'm considering a qualitative asexuality project, I'm going to talk to Anna the lecturer who specialises in relationships about it on monday to see if she'll be my supervisor. I suppose the biggest problem would be finding participants willing to talk to me.

I've also been pretty depressed recently unfortunately, ending in me throwing a fit and driving back to Doncaster last monday. I've just started taking SSRIs for it so I've been a bit crazy for the last few weeks cos they've got some annoying side-effects but they seem to be dying down a bit now. One memorable moment when I got confused by the pattern on a carpet last weekend was incredibly strange though!! XD

On a less miserable note Patience opened yesterday at uni and the opening night was great! The audience loved it, and the nice backdrop we've put up in Middleton Hall looked good. My mum and my grandparents came to see it, then today we went to walk round the fountains near Princes Quay then we went for something to eat which was good. I'm just hoping tomorrow's and saturday's shows will be just as good! :)

Also, last night's Psych was ace!

Welcome back to Livejournal! I wondered where you'd gotten to.

Sounds like you've been having a pretty crappy time recently, I'm glad you're doing better, and congrats on the exams!

I don't think you'll have too much trouble finding people to talk to you for your project, not if you're okay doing it over the internet. I'm sure if you post a message in on Aven or the asexuality group here on lj, people would be willing to help out. Other people do it all the time. And I'd be happy to do it, so you already have at least one volunteer to mention when you go see your lecturer :)

Yeah I haven't been too great for a bit and I didn't really have anything to say that wasn't just whinging.

Thanks :) I was most surprised that my essays turned out all right cos 1 of them had a word missing I discovered (after both me and my housemate had proof read it D:) but I still got 68 on it.

It'd be cool for you to come and talk to me for my research if I do get the project I want. I hope I do, but I can't talk to Anna Sandfield till monday and I know she's gonna be quite a popular choice.

Love the icon btw! XD

It's always lovely to see you around. :)

Well done on your results! :) I hope you get to do the project you want to do. I don't know if you read it, but there was a piece in the Guardian at the weekend about asexuality that I (as someone who knows very little about it) found interesting: http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2012/feb/26/among-the-asexuals.

I hope you're doing OK. ♥

Thanks :) I am really hoping to do this project cos Anna Sandfield specialised in qualitative projects and most of the research I've done so far has been stats based, which I tend to be quite good at, but I'd like to get experience of both while I'm at uni.

I did see that article cos I tend to read the Guardian if I ever read the paper, I thought it was really good :)

I'm alright at the moment thanks, though I am still a bit ill with weird medication side-effects :/
