For my first semester, I managed a 3.0 GPA. I was really bloody stoked by that. Like, beyond words stoked [Especially when that consisted of an A- in Contracts and a B+ in Torts]. Even my other two grades weren't bad. C in CivPro which still confuses me and a B- in Crim... which I was actually surprised at given that my teacher had issues with my writing. I'm sorry that I use polysyllabic words and write in sentences longer than five words but it's how I write and I've been doing it for a long time. But I digress.

Still, I was THRILLED. Utterly thrilled. Went into this semester feeling good about things and ready to take on the world, as it were.

Then, today, we got our rankings.

100/201.

I now feel like shit. I know I'm an over-achiever, but that's just how I am. I'm a perfectionist. And I KNEW I wasn't going to be in the top 10%, but I had hoped (especially after talking to some of my friends and hearing that we all did roughly the same) that I'd be sitting in the top 30% of the class.

Not... edging into the top half by the fucking skin of my teeth.

bullet points!

• For the first (and possibly only time) I can say that I am a week ahead in all of my law school readings. GO ME! *g*

• I finished my [livejournal.com profile] tw_bigbang. And by finish I mean hit 17k with two scenes left. One of which is smut, the other the last plot twist. I feel so accomplished!

• I love my parents. I really do. Mother has surprised me with three new Ed Hardy shirts. (*SQUEE* I love you Marshalls) Father has surprised me with the complete 7 seasons of West Wing.

• I need someone to tell me that because it turns out John won't be making an appearance at ChicagoTARDIS (*MUTTERMUTTER*) that I shouldn't use that money on a trip to London over thanksgiving.

Let me show you why I want to gooooo )

And while we're at it... why is I Am What I Am already out over there but not here? *glares at amazon.co.uk* if you didn't totally screw me on the Torchwood novels, I'd be tempted to order said book from there.

Whelp...

A few bullet points because I'm so fucking tired it isn't funny.

Torchwood Picked up for Series 4.

Good luck, Rusty. Can't wait to see how you're going to pull this one off. And if this is "let's get a new cast + Jack"? I don't know how I feel about it. Yes, I watch for John and I freely admit this point. But I don't want to start watching for a group of new cast members -- why get attached to any of them when you know they're just going to get picked off one at a time?

I just feel like the fandom response... is going to bring out the batshit again. *sigh*

• I will be catching up with all my tags tomorrow. I've officially had 6 (roughly) twelve-hour days down at the theatre. I was supposed to have the day off today. yeah... only, not so much there. I'm fucking exhausted and anything that would come out of Jack's mouth at this point in time would be gibberish.


• Words you never want to hear come out of your mother/boss's mouth: Oh. I didn't realise ComicCon was now. You should have said something. We'd have worked around work to let you go this weekend.

And she wondered why I started crying and banging my head against the cutting table.


• Apparently there was John/David snoggage at SDCC. Photo-evidence anyone? NAO PLZ.


I'm off to bed and attempt to actually get some sleep tonight. ♥

Yes, THOSE spoilers. And are insanely spoilery.  )

Bullet points:

• I fucking hate my extended family on my dad's side. My grandfather practically ruined Easter. He finally called after 3 fucking years. And managed to cause even more problems. *sigh* Fun times only, y'know, not.
• Watching s2 of Doctor Who today, I realised I keep having more contacts with people in that show. see picture. That was from meeting Daniel Evans last year when I saw Sunday in the Park with George. Watching 'Christmas Invasion' today... TOTALLY didn't realise that was him as David Llewellyn.
• Is something screwy going on with IJ today or is it just me?
• Speaking of WTFs... where the hell did my default icon go?
• I have comments. Will be replying to things this evening. ♥ Counting down the weeks left that I have to teach, thank god!
• I'm seeing people talking about Dreamwidth lately and it's making me sad. It just feels like more and more people are splitting off and I'm afraid I'm going to lose contact with folks. I may not comment a lot, but I do read and after being here since 2003, LJ is like my home. But at the same time, I have this odd twisting in my stomach thinking of losing more people off my flist to yet another site. Yes, most of us have moved on from HP or aren't as into it as we once were... but still. Gah. *sigh* I just don't want my flist to disperse any more than it already has. *clings to you guys*

In any case, a poll about dreamwidth.

[Poll #1383571]

ETA: D'aaaaaaaaa *breath* aaaaaaaaaaaaw! John Barrowman wants to be a dad. *melt* Makes me think of my friend Eric and his husband's little boy. *sniffle*
