Partly Friends Only

I'll friendlock some of my more private entries just so I can be sure that none of the
persons I write about stumble upon thier names and stories.

Graphics and the more general entries will still be available for everyone.

I you want me to friend you back, leave comment and tell me, what we do have in common.
(You'll find something in my userinfo, I'm sure)

Friendless F-List

Ever since I came back to my LJ, my F-List has shrunk because there were so many dead accounts and people who don't update anymore. The same goes for communities. This results in my friendlists being very sad and a bit pathetic because it gets updated with new entries only every other day ... when I'm lucky.

I intent to get back to HiH and I'm working feverishly on my application, but until then: anyone got an idea how to find active people and communities? Are there any friending memes going on at the moment? Help would be greatly appreciated, as i feel a bit rusty when it come to the workings of LJ and would like to get to know a few more people.

On a happier note: I am working on new icons and i feel so inspired at the moment. I can't wait to get back home and start creating :D

How time flies

Wow, I didn't realise I haven't posted anything on here in such a long time. Life has been absolutely crazy and I guess I wanted to wait until everything had settled down a bit before writing again. Well, seems like that is not going to happen, ever, so I might as well start now.

Maybe a short summary of the last 2 years:
After finishing my university degree in Anglistics and Educational Studies I am now working for a bank ... No idea how that happened exactly but it is what it is at the moment. I have a 5 % chance to be kept on the job after the next 11 months so: Happy Days! *sarcatstic whoop*

My partner and I have been together for a good five years now and he asked me to marry him last year, but currently we neither have money nor time to organise the whole thing. With Sean being British, there is a lot of paperwork that needs to be done before we can even start to plan anything. I do love the quiet excitment that pulses through my body everytime I think about saying "I do" to him, though. I can't wait!

We moved to a brilliant flat which I absolutely adore. Bright, huge bathroom, a living room with a wall full of books, an art room (can you imagine?!), office, bedroom, a lovely kitchen and best of all: affordable! We were really lucky with this one. It is quite old, though, so there is lots to be done.

I finally got my drivers licence and have been driving around for about a year and a half. Oh the independence!

Here are some Snape icons that I made but never posted:

Is anyone from my friendlist still there?

I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
Yours, Sayla

I'm still there

I really am. I do read your journals once in the while, look into some communities and stuff, but I just can't bring myself to actually write something. It's wierd, I love this page. I love reading your entries, but when it comes to writing myself? It's just like a block ...

"Thank you"s and icons

First of all: Thank you so much for the lovely card you posted reg_flint. It was rather sweet and more than appreciated!
Also a big thanks to sionna_raven for the Chocolate Cupcake and the Gingerbread Man she sent me for my birthday. Both of them were delicious!

During the holiday I had some time so I decided to create a few icons and experiment with new techniques and variations which was not only great fun but also inspiring.

101 things in 101 days + Awards

I've already tolf you about the Day Zero challange thingy. I've been doing this project for 102 days now and it is fantastic! The idea is that you define 101 goals/challanges/etc and then you work through them. 1001days are roughly 2 3/4 years so there is enough time to do even more complex challanges. You can choose your own goals or look through predefined ones. It's just a lot of fun and it made me more active and my life more interesting. Well, one of those goals is to blog every day for a week, so here I am, actually using my LJ and not just reading through other peoples journals.

And while we're at it: My life is far too interesting at the moment. I was able to get a job in a bar where I work 2-3 times a week and sometimes on weekends which is great because I get free food and drink wheneve I want to but it is time consuming. Adittionaly I'm attending the English Stammtisch (a meeting of native english speakers and german students where we discuss stuff in english and have a drink) which is always lots of fun. Before that, there is a facultative reading course and I do have to meet my friends once in a while. Then there is homework, presentations, and going to university. I have a lot on my mind right now and even though my week has never been this full I catch myself liking it.
