Personal update

First of all - YAY, I'm done with the paperwork related to the Stavanger trip/meeting from a few weeks ago. I got the last two forms I needed yesterday, so today I've been to the post office to send everything in. I know this is not much stress to most people, but I still wasn't that happy about having to fill out these forms. Now my part is done, though, so let's wait and see what happens from here.

As for other things, I see a lot of new people are coming to DW now. Does anyone know of a friending meme somewhere? It's always fun to get to know some new people...

On that note, I updated my profile ever so slightly. It's still not great, but there's slightly more info on it than before. When I browse around random journals, I always get a little disappointed if their profile isn't really giving me a "feel" for who they are, so I guess the least I can do is try to have something at least half-informative up about myself.

Somehow I didn't find a way to include "fangirling excessively" on there, though... but I guess that's obvious from my journal already. I'll try to not do it in this post, though.

What else? Yes, I have a lot of new music to listen to, as I recently got about five albums by Nena. You might remember the 80s hit single "99 Luftballons" ("99 Red Balloons" when it was recorded in English). I've had one compilation album of hers/theirs (From what I know, the name Nena refers to both the female singer and the band around her from the 80s) since forever. When I randomly mentioned this to a friend, he immediately got wildly excited, because it turned out that he had a lot of other materials. Now I'm kind of excited about this, too, so I just need to make some time to listen to everything. At least I have everything in my iTunes now.

I also have some things I want to read. [livejournal.com profile] chelsealady has been writing novel-length fanfiction that I'm behind on reading, so I have practically three full "books" of fiction to read from her. It's a little bit challenging to read fic in Spanish, because my vocabulary is just not good enough at times... but I'm also learning from doing this, so I should stop putting it off because it's challenging. Unless I end up falling asleep the second my head hits the pillow tonight, I might finish one "book" tonight, and also start the next one. That's the plan, at least.

As for other books, I still have Bruce Springsteen's biography to read. I started it, and I enjoyed what I've read so far, but somehow I'm not reading very fast. Much of the time, I end up lying in bed clicking randomly around the Internet instead of spending that time reading... which is annoying, because I like reading and want to do it more than I do.

Well, I'm off to find something to eat soon... and I wrote this post instead of working on fic today. My mind is still on that fic I started a couple of days ago, though, so I hope to make some progress with it soon. Tomorrow, maybe? Let's see about that...!
