 I've seen people posting again, trying to bring the old LJ back from the dead. I hope it catches, you know? And I feel weird because I don't even know if there is someone reading this but whatever.

How are things going for you guys? I am kind of terrified because I have a conference this Tuesday and it's been such a long time since I've spoken in public but I am also really fucking happy. Things are going better, thank God. And it seems that I got a new job with health insurance and a good salary and just nice.

So, umm, crickets? Or not?

I got the two books I bought last week (how I love you Royal Mail, you are so fast and trustworthy ♥) and I'm, like, über happy. 'Cause I'm a nerd XD

I got one for my thesis, The Hundred Years War: England and France at War c.1300-c.1450 by Christopher Allmand and one for pleasure readng, Lancaster And York: The Wars of the Roses by Alison Weir. The thesis is killing me, btw. 

I'm also happy because I have a friends's birthday party tonight and I'm going to buy a shirt, so yay consumism! Also, I'm watching Inherit the Wind and I just adore that film. 

What nice things have happened to you, dearest flisters?

So happy!

I got a mail from uni today telling me they've granted me a 100% scholarship due to what happened to my father. I'm so incredibly happy, OMG.

I just got home from my final on American (the continent) history. I did great! Yay me!!! Thank you so much to everyone who helped me with the Canadian October Crisis, it as really helpful and allowed me to steer my presentation exactly in the direction I wanted. I love it when you can use your exposition to answer what you know and avoid what you don't (like, 90% of the course) . Next exam (12/16) is for Theology III and that's it! I'll be a free bitch for two months!

Sorry, I'm super excited and happy. And not only because of my exams but also because I bought some awesome books in Amazon.co.uk and they have already been dispatched. According to the site they'll be delivered the 24th but I seriously doubt DHL works on Christmas. Unless those German guys are really serious when it comes to business, lol.

I had to think quite a lot about buying these books (the exchange rate between pounds and pesos is dreadful for us) but after all I've been trough I think I deserve something to make me happy, right? Anyway, see my new babies:
  • A Great and Terrible King: Edward I and the Forging of Britain by Marc Morris
  • The Perfect King: The Life of Edward III, Father of the English Nation by Ian Mortimer
  • The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England: A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century by Ian Mortimer
  • Agincourt: The King, the Campaign, the Battle by Juliet Barker

Has anyone read them? Ok, so I'll stop babbling right now, I'm sorry to be so boring. 

Do tell me, any recent purchase that made you happy?

I wonder of anyone can help me to find some information about the October Crisis and the FLQ. I have the final exam of American (the continent) History next week and I have to pick a theme to start my exam. I picked this one (I'm not sure why) and I'm looking for articles/information that I can read. Do you know any? In English, please, I don't trust my French enough to use it for an exam. 

Thanks!
