Another Summer has been come and gone. It is always so sad for me when the Summer sets; I absolutely adore it. It's my favourite time of year. Winter is cold and gloomy. I prefer the sunshine, but I suppose it will still be warm and lovely a little while longer.

University resumes tomorrow. I am not looking forward to getting up at 6 in the morning. I tried and failed to practice that this morning. I never did fully get back to sleep, but I did try. I am nervous and excited. I'm sure I'll be sick tomorrow LOL. I always am the first day back. I love learning, but the idea of spending 13 weeks doing an estimated 20+ assignments does not really appeal to me at the current time. I still have much to organise. At least I have the most necessary textbook for my Torts subject. I'm looking forward to my Law subject. It sounds exciting. (I'll probably be complaining next week :P )

I am currently back in my Pilates craze. It is amazing and I can feel the difference already. I'm a tiny little thing, but I love to be fit, healthy and toned. I am trying to do it a few times a week. I did a 3km walk the other day; my first real walking effort ever. It was extremely hard, but I did push myself much farther than my limits for my first time out there. LOL. My bad.

My parents came back from Bali on Thursday. My wonderful stepdad bought me a gift home. Alias Season 2. I am so excited. I have been missing all but disk 1 for the last year or more, so after finishing seasons 1, 3, 4 & 5, I am so excited to have my favourite season back. Yay :D

What's new with everyone else? Keep me updated. Feeling rather lonely here.

Over&out for now.

PS I am still making icons. Just waiting till I have enough to share a big batch. It's exciting. Alias, Twilight, Jennifer Aniston, etc, etc.

I made two new userpics, reflecting my love for Twilight. My default is one of my favourite icons ever. I am in love with the colouring. I am also extremely in love with the other icon, featuring James and Victoria. A whole set is being posted soon.  I've spent all day fiddling with selective colour, gradients, layers, textures, fonts, et. al.

I can't wait to share.

Everyday at work over the pre-Christmas shopping period, those Twilight books were walking out the door. I remember people iconning about the Dream Team (Gaspard/Emily) when Twilight first came out, but I guess with a Law Degree to work through, my job and my friends and love life to juggle, reading sadly fell to the 'I'll get around to later' category.

I decided that my sister would love Twilight, so I bought her a copy for Christmas. I actually read her copy Christmas night and couldn't wait to get my hands on the next 3 books.  Unfortunately, at this stage, work had sold out, the other bookstore in town was also sold out and apparently so had the entire region. I was lucky enough to catch our last copy of New Moon, and then a friend loaned me Eclipse and Breaking Dawn so my voracious reading appetite could be satiated. Finally, when the next shipment arrived, I was able to complete my set. I am in love. I love those books as much as I love The Great Gatsby, which is one of the greatest books ever written.

So now, I am iconning. It took me an hour to make one tinsy little icon of James and Victoria, and yesterday a few million hours doing one icon of Edward/Bella + a wallpaper. It's been too long since I have done anything creative, and with a month left before university resumes, I really need to just relax and enjoy.

I'll be sharing soon. If I get really motivated, I might share some more Alias and a few Gossip Girl icons. No promises though; I don't want to break them.

It's a good day. I think. I'm actually updating my LJ, which apparently hasn't happened for 8 weeks. I blame that on being a law student. Assignments are pretty much ruling my life. I still have so much to catch up on from being sick.

I think there's a thunderstorm on it's way, so I'm going to be quick. I'll need to turn everything off at the powerpoint soon.

Well, I'm here. 6 weeks after my last entry. I've had many good intentions of posting. I even did a small batch of icons. Then I started Law School. I'm going to be a lawyer. Yay :) It's a brilliant, exhausting, 'teach yourself' kind of ride. Hence, why I have been so absent from LJ. 

I just wanted to post a small note saying 'I'm alive, I'm well... and if I'm not at university, I'm more than likely catching up on my beauty sleep' LOL ;)

New icons and an updated post about all that's going on in my life soon.
Take care,
Z

P.S What do you think of my new userpics? I adore them ;)

I'm in the midst of searching for an image I made to be the 'header' of my lj account homepage. Just a little something schmicky for all of you who do visit my profile. It's in need of love.. it's been neglected for awhile LOL. So I'm combing through my folders, painstakingly, as there is about 4500, but so far, to no avail!!

Leading me to my question of the day, because I'm having one of those days: When you look through your older (or even some of your more recent) graphics/icons, are you still totally in love with certains ones, and feel that others are just weird and not the right colour combination, or do you ask yourself, 'Why on earth did I make this??'. Just a question that's been on my mind as I search and trek through all of those unfinished sets, wondering how on earth Meredith Grey came to be so orange!!

Perhaps it is time to do a little more with LJ. I'll use my space to vent, and laugh and dole out my opinions at will. From time to time, I'll share my icons, because iconning is honestly something that thrills me. 

So onto the whole point of blogging today: The pseudo-finale of Grey's Anatomy Season Four!
