girl, you just can't dance forever  
I celebrated doing my viva by tidying my room. It's now immaculate. (Everyone who's ever been in my room is laughing/unbelieving right now, I know.) There's so much floor! Fran came into my room to ask me something and was literally stopped speechless.

It apparently amuses a lot of people how I'm obsessive about keeping kitchens clean and orderly, but happily live in rooms with clothes and paper all over the floor. SO MUCH PAPER.


I've finally begun uploading my backlog of fic onto AO3. Because I don't want to annoy everyone by spamming, I decided to do two stories a day. This has already become "two stories on days when I remember". My organisational skills, let me show them to you. Okay, since I've just told you how I filed two terms' worth of lecture handouts on my bedroom floor, this probably isn't a surprise.


Last night, for reasons which are beyond me, I made a spreadsheet of all the goods I own in Echo Bazaar and calculated out their values. Conclusion: I can comfortably afford an Overgoat. But I'd have to sell lots and lots of stuff to do that. I have an unreasonable attachment to stuff (even virtual stuff), so this is a Difficult Decision. I mean, I'm already sad that I can't have my Bifurcated Owl and Unfinished Hat equipped as pets at the same time. I kind of want them to both ride around on my Bengal Tigress.


Celia Bowen sits at a desk surrounded by piles of books. She ran out of space for her library some time ago, but instead of making the room larger she has opted to let the books become the room. Piles of them function as tables, others hang suspended from the ceiling, along with large golden cages holding several live white doves.

Oh god, lecture notes on the floor; I remember that. Mine were so chaotic. But eventually filing them is so satisfying.

It's going to be the first step of my revision, currently they're in a shoebox lid :D

I spent very long periods of time with notes in just a massive pile on my desk. There was no order there. Good luck with yours! The shoebox lid idea sounds wise.

Piles of paper - they just seem to grow and grow and grow, whether lecture notes or bills or important letters etc, they just seem to fill up more and more room!!

Hmm, I probably should file some of these bills and things...

...still, at least they're not on the floor! :p :)

Definitely! They create more of themselves, it's their nefarious scheme to take over the world.
