Situational updates

The past few days have been a bland mess of watching TV, trying to find the energy to work, failing to find the energy to work and just staring at code, and going to lectures to ease my eyes from staring at code. This is depressing me, as I have another six weeks of this, then I have to hand in what I have and fail, because I haven't the time or the energy to fix what I have and make it work... Damn, but I suck. There's a hole in the world, and it's drawing all of the good out of me.

The landlady here is still the most annoying person I have ever encountered in person.

ObGoodNews: I'm going to see MFP tomorrow. Got train tickets and everything. The world shall see how great, sexy, intelligent and amazing we are.

This room's a tip and we have people coming round tonight who want to look over the house. Damn cleaning...

War

First things first: Though I have expressed my opinion of the war on other people's LiveJournals, and while I may express my own opinions of the war, I am going to disallow comments on those posts. Having seen the depths some people will sink to when I don't unilaterally support the "American way of doing things", I am not having that on my journal. I may make political statements, but that is what they are: Statements. If I wanted to discuss them, I'd take them to a public forum. I will not have my Journal, a place where I put my thoughts and my feelings out for the world, turn into some pile of political bullshit about the war. It's not going to happen. Any comments on other journal entries of mine that directly concern the war will be deleted without being read. This is my journal, and though it is selfish, sometimes I need a place where I can hear myself think without the cries of others deafening me.

To paraphrase (slightly) Warren Ellis, "I'll let myself sleep soon, and hope to hell the world doesn't seem so god-damn fractured when I wake up. Having said that, I also hope I wake to find half the world comitted suicide in my honour."
