i don't wanna! realised this is the first test i've done since i got my driver's license. it'll be fine (see the two piles of flashcards - the ones on the left are the ones i know!) but i can't be bothered studying. or reading. mostly cos reading is postcolonial theory (poco gives me hives) and saint augustine's "on christian doctrine", which is dry like a dry thing.

knocked back two invites in favour of staying in and whining, so is all my own silly fault. on the other hand, had a lovely long skype w grot and a good swim before that. i did three tumbleturns that worked! very exciting! (and a whole lot that involved me shooting off towards the bottom of the pool or into the lane ropes or simply getting half the pool up my nose. a work in progress. . . )
very excited about maybe doing my phd in NY. planning on going to visit over easter, to try and get a feel for if i could cope there. all of this subject to change, btw, but inspiring none the less. must get ridiculously good marks in order to get ridiculously good scholarships or the whole thing's shot. so - back to the past participles.
