Writer's Block: Girls and Boys

I think schools need a better sex ed system. I live in England and had a fairly good-ish sex ed, but there's room for improvement; there needs to be more focus on the social aspects of sex and not just the physical side, and teachers should dispell the rumours about sex as well as cover stuff like sexual orientation and gender identity. (And know what they're talking about.) Abstinence only sex ed seems useless, and I think the current system is rather heteronormative.

I'm generally not a fan of 3-D films, as I don't think it adds anything most of the time. And I can't say I'm a fan of re-releasing films; I think it's just a way for the film-makers to make more money. If there're any treaks/extra scenes, they could always just put it on the DVD (or maybe re-release the DVD with the new bits on it? That'll probably be cheaper than ticket price + 3-D glasses.)

Writer's Block: Historical Romantic Mystery Thriller

I've been reading a fair amount of young adult recently (authors like John Green, Maureen Johnson etc) so I guess that type of genre. Mainly I like fiction that focuses more on the interaction between the characters and character development, though I do love a good fantasy when it's done well.

Writer's Block: Write Me a Letter

Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars, because he's so awesome and intellegent, and could quote poetry at me. (Then again, he is overly metaphorical.) So either him or the Ninth Doctor.

Writer's Block: Going Up?

The Doctor, since he'd probably be able to sonic the lift into working again. And it'd be funny to hear him complain about time moving in the right direction and how his box was bigger.

Writer's Block: Mad for Mullets

Describe your ideal type of guy or gal -- what attracts you most when you first meet someone?

Intellegence and humour are the two big ones. And they have to like books (similar books that I like, preferably). And it'd be good if they were a Nerdfighter and willing to watch Whose Line with me.

Finally the holidays.

It's Easter! Well, not quite, but close enough. 'How will you be spending your time off?' I imagine you ask. By sleeping in and revising. Yes, I'm a boring person.

Wow, it's been a while since I did a journal type thing....

I mostly use LJ for fanfics, but I suppose I might as well start updating semi-regularly. I suppose it's a way of writing more often.

So what's been happening in my life? Well, panicking over A-Levels mostly, and trying to get coursework in. I had my Photography exam last week, and I think that went all right. It was five hours though, so it was a bit of an effort to get everything organised - time management has never been my strong point. It didn't help that I spent of my time in the darkroom, meaning that the teachers apparently forgot about me and therefore didn't tell me anything.

I continue to be a part of the Nerdfighter community, which my friend introduced me to some time last year. I was just thinking the other week that my Youtube subscription box would be empty if my friend hadn't gotten me hooked on the Vlogbrothers, considering the amount of other Nerdfighter-related channels I've subcribed to because of them. So yeah, Vlogbrothers. Check them out.

Oh, and I've gotten into Doctor Who fairly recently (well, since before Halloween anyway.) I'm all caught up with NewWho, but I really want to find the classic episodes. Anyone know where I can find them? It'd be interesting to compare the new Doctors with the older ones.

I think I'll leave it here for now, until I think of other stuff to write about.

You can really see the love here

This is one of the reasons I believe in Maylor:




I love all the little glances the two share, especially during the solo, you can just tell how close they are (''And I look, and I find, Brian May!'") I also adore the harmonies, and the fact that Brian's shirt is very-nearly see-through.
