Somebody just wrote a Harry Potter parody/AU set in my school.

Note that that's not the link to the original entry, but the original entry requires forum membership in order to view it. Also note that there are too many in-jokes for it to be of interest unless you're an Atenean.

Lux in Domino and Animo La Salle as spells, ftw ;)

...there's even a "19 years later" epilogue. Dude. *dead*

Mmm, am safely settled in the dorm now, and have the internet connection in my room safely set up. China definitely unfriended blocked LJ; thank goodness that the tunneling works, yay.

It's late summer shading into autumn, so it's definitely not cool. In fact, it's just like home, but less humid, which is nice.

I have the vague feeling that I should be going out and making friends (hahaha), but I'm just not in the mood for company right now. I'll probably be online, lurking around and catching up, being unproductive and stuff. School doesn't actually start until next Monday, but there's a placement exam in two days. Given how much my Chinese sucks compared to almost everyone else here, I suspect that I will be in one of the lower ranked classes.

Classes are going to be six hours a day (from 8-12am, then from 2-4pm). I'm dreading the thought of getting up that early. The dorm is on-campus, but the campus is huge. It's beautiful, though. Sprawling grounds with plenty of fields and gardens.

This weekend has so drained me (additional bit of information which I just remembered: it's the fifth vertebrae that was fractured? I don't know if that's good news or bad news. Also, lumbar drainage = taking pressure off the spinal cord = making things better?). I shall maybe take a nap until my roommate gets here.

Take care you all (Pretty fucking please?) <3

Yay, finished packing. It took a bit longer than I expected, but still managed to finish it in an hour. Then I proceeded to clean up my room *g*. That took a bit less time than I expected. (Twenty minutes to move all my books from where they were piled beside my bed to the newly vacated shelf space where my clothes once were! I'll have to figure something out when I get home in five months, but at least no one is in danger of kicking them over or anything like that.

Speaking of books, Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast novels look gorgeous. I think I'll bring it along for airport reading, and general reading if I get bored over there. How one trilogy is going to last me five months, I don't know, but eh.

I may have overpacked. Have one very full suitcase, full of clothes and assorted junk, most of which I probably won't need :-)

Three hours before I have to leave the house, so still some six hours before my flight. Might not see you guys until I get Internet set up in the dorm (apartment?). Hopefully the hotel will have wifi, in which case I will see you guys in a day or so (but I'm not getting my hopes up. Most of the time you have to pay for hotel internet; I'm too cheap to do so :P)

Here's the plan:
- flight leaves about 6 or 7 am.
- arrive in Hong Kong some 3-4 hours later
- spend ten hours or so in Hong Kong
- fly on to Beijing
- sleep! Then explore on Saturday ^_^
- enrollment on Monday
- move in to dorm some time after enrollment, but before school starts
- school starts on the thirteenth

PS. I just realized this is an extremely bad plan. I mean, I've graduated already. Escaped school! Why am I going back?

Cleaning up

Just threw four years' worth of notes mixed in with almost ten years' worth of accumulated junk. Weighed them all outside, and it came out to a bit more than 25 kilograms. Still have a lot more to sort out, but I've reduced the piles at the foot of my bed and for the first time in years, I can stretch out fully instead of having to curl up slightly to avoid accidentally kicking away stuff in my sleep.

(I am a slob, okay? :P)

(I did keep notes from a few subjects that were dear to my heart.)

I love old LJ/Gmail conversations. [ profile] murklins said something that made me look through my archives, and now all I can think about are the words "genital powers" and "genital embrace". That book was so amazingly bad. How did I survive to graduation with my sanity intact?
