Hello Again + December Talking Meme

Life has been... super-hectic the past couple of months. I've maintained my Tumblring pretty well, but LJ/DW has kind of been left in the dust. This has at least partly to do with the fact that reblogging shit on Tumblr is just considerably less effort than trying to be interesting in a blog post. Which is somewhat ironic, because I've had a lot of stuff going on ever since I moved.

So uh, that's a thing. I moved! I no longer have to spend four hours per day on public transport! I live in Uppsala most days of the week and usually go home over the weekends. I don't see the guys in my dorm that often, but the girls have been very welcoming and we get along well. Everything else (studies, mental health, all being so-so) is details.

A lot of other stuff has happened as a result, and some regardless of that-- for example, I went to Dimensions in Newcastle and met People Who Play Characters I Adore (v strange) and am going to the Stockholm Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Gaming Convention this weekend to see Colin Baker (much less strange after Newcastle). Fandom life overall has been pretty weird and meh lately.

Anyway, since everyone's doing it and it'd give me a good incentive to start updating here again, I thought I'd do the December Talking Meme. Basically: give me one or more questions/topics/requests (+ a date, if you want to, or I'll just pick one at random) and I will talk about that (and/or post pictures). If I don't get any suggestions I'll just... try to come up with topics myself.

If I ask you a question for your meme, will you ask me one for mine?

I'm not the most imaginative asker, but sure! I know lots of people on my f-list are doing this but I haven't kept up properly, I should find and drop everyone a question. @__@

So, I'll wait for your question and then submit one to you. :)

Have you done any tertiary study/would you like to? What field?

I should do this meme, too. My posts have been very ranty/angry lately. It'd give me a chance to talk about something else.

These are good (and potentially embarrassing) questions!!

It's a very nice meme-- I've seen some pretty interesting questions around. And, providing you don't manage to fill all 31 days, you get to decide yourself what you want to share. :)

pictures of your writing desk, if you don't mind!:) I love looking at other people's workspaces!

Ahaha sure, though I'm afraid it'll be something of a disappointment... the desk at home is covered with junk since I don't use it anymore and the one here in Uppsala is very small.

Oh, yay! Disposing with so much travel in the day is such a great thing, isn't it? \o/

As for a topic, um, favourite companion(s)? Will that be a good one?

Yeah it's been such a relief. I can finally do stuff here and get involved in the student life... not that I've been doing much of that.

Sure! So many to choose from... uwu

Are there any figures you've come across in your studies that you think are lgbt, for any reason?

Do you mean real life or fictional people, or both? This is a really good question. Any excuse to rant about queer interpretation. *Rubs palms*

Both! Queer interpretation is my one of my favourite things about history.
