Okay, so I don't actually expect to have a quarter life crisis, but now that I am 25 (by two days, whee!) I feel that maybe I ought to. I'm not a very crisis-type person, though, but I have noticed in the last couple of weeks that I'm feeling motivated about things: studying! getting brainwashed by a cult again! signing up for more insurance now I can get cheaper premiums!

I had a lovely long weekend down in Wellington (and I did, indeed, spend more getting to the airport than what the flights cost) and it was awesome to hang out with The Girls in Their Flat. I also helped Mum sort through her jewellery (which, she has maybe twenty pairs of earrings in total, with eight or ten she wears regularly. I have over a hundred pairs of earrings. Oops?) and bought home a few bits and pieces which made me squeal but which she didn't wear at all - some pearl studs, garnet and itsy bitsy pearl studs, silver art-deco-ish dangly earrings with Chinese symbols for luck and longevity, antiquey diamante dangly earrings, black glass pendants...all pretty and requiring me to now go through my jewellery, because there's no way I can store them at the moment.

This may end up with me offering stuff I don't wear anymore to my flist. Watch this space.

For my birthday my parents gave me an external hard drive (which is what I asked for, and which I strongly suspected was in the box from the moment my mum said my dad had bought it, not her!) It is teeeeny and 320Gb and I have backed up my entire C:\ and copied across all my entirely legally obtained video files (which has moved my laptop from having about 8% free space to 40%) and there is still over 200Gb free. OH THERE ARE GOOD TIMES AHEAD.

And for my birthday present to myself, I have splurged on Gold Lounge tickets to see the Star Trek movie tonight. I am excited: not only is it Star Trek, but I have heard it is a genuinely good movie. I lament that I have no appropriately themed t-shirts or jewellery. (A insignia/communicator pin? I WOULD SO WEAR THAT YOU KNOW I WOULD.)
