That is all.
No actually it isn't. I shall say some brief things.
First, Happy New Year! (And a Merry Christmas before that
) Hope you have had a lovely festive season and are still full of hope for the new year - who knows what 2014 will bring? (apparently the Battle for Middle Earth on Facebook, hmm...) Me, I'm hoping I will keep fit and actually go running instead of thinking about it. I'd like to cook more and be more appreciative of the wonderful friends I have at uni. I am excited to probably be going back on the Romania mission trip in summer, and while it has been lovely getting to know people at my church here I am looking forward to the family at Fulwood, Sheffield.
So I finally cleared my backlog of deviations and saturated myself in great art, wahey! You guys (by which I mean all of dA, really) have been up to lots and it's lovely to see the art world spin on while I invest my time in architecture stuffs. Manga drawing has happened a little bit as you can tell but this being third year I focussing on coursework which is still very enjoyable. The mini-project before Christmas was a nice way to wind down and boy did we need the break! You can read about it here if you like corinathomas.wordpress.com/201…
. I seem to mostly post photography on dA these days which must mean I am busy seeing things - hope people appreciate that all the same
This holiday has involved deer-spotting, swimming, food, copious amounts of Katamari, food, a game of Rat Race where I got divorced 9 times, work, food, work, playing with the cat, meeting up with friends, playing guitar, and more food. The next few months up until summer will be hectic really, got a few assessments and exams to get out of the way before final project starts. That and finding a job, yay.
Let me see, what else is going on...ah yes, Sherlock and The Hobbit Part 2 have treated us to more Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch. It is very cool watching Sherlock and thinking of all the Americans wishing they lived in London because it looks so edgy and cool. Ish. (I may well be back in/near London for placement next year which is exciting and daunting.) I have mixed opinions on both Sherlock and Hobbit despite enjoying them both a lot so I'll keep them to myself in case not everyone has watched them yet. But, you know, CGI Dragon and endless twists of plot ftw. In fact there's been a lot of film watching this holiday and the one I can say I reaaaally enjoyed was Terminator 2 - how is it so much better than the first? Also Monsters University was adorable, even more so than Despicable Me 2. Crank is just...weird...but I can see what they were trying to do and it IS pretty funny XD Gravity went to show just how achingly beautiful our planet and space can be, and I found its themes of the importance of life in relation to the afterlife quite touching.
I really have a lot more I could talk about but the packing is calling. Onwards, to whatever 2014 has in store!
