Please please don't ask me how my Reel_Merlin is going. I had 12 pages, read it and decided it was shit, so three days from the deadline I'm starting from scratch.

I would have had it done sooner, but things have been happening.

1) Border visa visits to Laos (two days of my life wasted - I would not reccommend Laos to anyone.)
2) University - I am now officially a student!!! I start classes in October!
3) School.
Let me tell you a secret about the Thai school system, which is a reflection of the Thai culture - THEY DO NOT ENCOURAGE INDEPENDENT THOUGHT!
The entire country is a mother state where citizens are told - don't worry - the King or Military government will do all your thinking for you. And that's how you breed a state of beaureucrats. Seriously. My school director is all about the written lesson plans and such. then I'm spending too many lesson teachign them how ot talk, then too few, then I'm ahead of the other teachers, then I'm behind. ARGH!!

AND, AND, in one class - I have 7 - count them -7 psychopaths. One kid stabbed another with a pencil in the arm. I saw him spontaneously punch another kids the day before for no reason! And no actions were taken. Because in Thailand they do not punish / discipline their kids.

It is emotionally draining, to say the least.
Mostly because these are all spoiled Bangkok kids who are raised by Phillipino nannies.

My mate is currently squatting on my floor until she finds a place to stay.

This past weekend was my birthday - I had a few friends at a pool party hosted by a gay club entertainment group - cos they throw the best parties. Got spoilt rotten with free champers until the Fuzz shut the party down for sound level violations. It was a good night.

Next weekend, I'm pulling a Cinderella and attending a proper ball hosted by the South African Embassy. I need to go borrow a ball gown late this week from a new friend I made. I hope it'll be awesome. I even found glow in the dark nailpolish!!!!

Right..off to work on the fic...

It sounds like you had an awesome birthday!

I'd love to get a look at the borrowed ball gown. I didn't know that such things existed outside of the movies :D

Wait, wait, wait, isn't the deadline at the end of September.

Also the stabbing with a pencil, goggling a bit.
I've only once ever taught classes -- technically I can with my degree, but it's complicated -- and if I'd seen that, well, I wouldn't have been too happy.

The party sounds like it was awesome and ball thingy as if it's going to be grand. Wow!

Happy universiting!

No, the Duet is end of September, but Reel_Merlin is the 10th. Unless I got my wires crossed, which could be a valid thing.
