"you fall on your knees, well get back on your feet"  

This is seriously the best thing to come home to after an exam &when you have a few extra days off work to enjoy :) Yay for well-timed Amazon love!

Despite a bit of a breakdown last night &fearing that I would fail my exam today, I think it actually went pretty well. I'd spent all week revising & taking notes & reading & doing problems [some days I was spending more than 12 hours at my desk revising, I was starting to go mad!], but self-doubt got the better of me last night, and I felt like I couldn't remember anything! There was too much that I just wasn't sure about... but somehow, none of the topics I was uncertain about were in the exam, and there were loads of questions on the things I did know about, so I was really very lucky! &relieved! So I'm certain I passed at least, and now I can relax & enjoy the few extra days off from work that I have now. I don't go back until next Thursday!

No work, no study... what am I going to do with myself?!

My amazon order filled with creative inspiration books arrived today, and I am very much looking forward to delving into these. Books by Sabrina Ward Harrison, SARK, Keri Smith & Jill Badonsky ♥ I have finally started working on a new zine, and am in the process of restarting my old Lace & Stars blog too. Plus I have a zillion letters to catch up on... I am determined to find new projects to work on &force myself to find creative outlets, because I really miss that feeling when you're working on something you love doing, just for fun.

That is an AMAZING parcel.
Keri Smith!!!
She is my favourite.

I also have 'Succulent Wild Woman' by SARK.
It's inspiring.

I am waiting on an amazon delivery full of yoga and Bollywood dance DVDs.
So excited!

the "how to be an explorer of the world" sounds really fun!
i hate the whole stress related to exams. i would much rather spend weeks and weeks on a paper. having to remember a whole lot of things in a limited amount of time is so stressful :(
