Christmas presents

OK, so I've raved on about this before, but I just found this video about it on the Oxfam site, so thought I'd post it... last mention of this (excellent) idea now, I promise! (At least until next Christmas.)

I'm graduating!

Got all my exam marks back, and looks like I'll be graduating next year!

It's a good feeling. I got an A+ on sub-editing, which isn't hugely surprising but is still nice; and I got a good mark on the paper I thought I'd failed.

I'm graduating!

The awesome thing is that my graduation day is also on my birthday.

I'm also really, really, really tired now. I don't think it can be attributed directly to NaNoWriMo, since I wasn't this tired yesterday. But to some extent, it probably is — just my body realising that finally, it can sleep.

Unfortunately, so far, it hasn't had any particular opportunity to sleep; so instead it's trying to do so all during the day....

Oh, but this was my favourite NaNoWriMo ever; and I'm left with possibly my favourite novel to date; and a novel-length manuscript, albeit unfinished, the first draft of which I hope to finish in December/January.

And now I'm off to plan out a bit more of the rest of my novel... then to read my new book, to shop online for some Christmas presents, and to sleep.

I'm so lucky to have such a good life.
