I might start asking people to call me by a different name, to see how that feels. I'm thinking of perhaps Annabelle. Or Ursa. Or possibly Iolanthe, except people can't spell that so that may not be a good option. Probably not Hester, even though I do still like the name, because it's a bit too reminiscent of the time period when I registered this account. -.-
2. So, you know how I'm doing my senior paper this semester? And you know how I had my topic all set out from last fall?
Fuck it. I suddenly decided I couldn't possibly bear to write about that topic. I'd rather just not do it at all in that case. <-- I tend to do that sort of thing --- going along with something for months and months and then spontaneously realizing how much a hate it --- a lot.
Fortunately, I think I'll have a new topic all ready once I've completed some basic research. I'm going to write about something to do with politics or maybe economics at the beginning of the Amarna Period. Definitely not religion or art or those more "soft" subjects, which I think have been picked over sufficiently already, but something that is a little less like what immediately springs to mind for the history of that era.
I'm not going to lie; I'm so incredibly excited about this!
3. I'm currently doing that thing that I swore (for some reason) I would never do: I'm watching AtLA. (To explain: for reasons which remain unclear even to me, for the longest time I absolutely despised this show and refused to watch it. Even when I watched Korra and liked it, my initial thought was still that I wouldn't actually go back and watch the original because no no no.)
AND HEY I BET YOU CAN'T GUESS WHICH CHARACTER I LIKE BEST SO FAR
NO SERIOUSLY YOU'LL NEVER EVER GUESS
IT'S NOT LIKE I LIKE JERKASS WOOBIE CHARACTERS WITH UNHAPPY FAMILIES AND WEIRD FACES OR ANYTHING
I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
