You probably guessed that I'm back from Brazil by my submissions.
It was great, I had a lot of fun and saw and did loads of cool things, like I saw real life wild monkeys and swam in a natural pool and slid down a natural slide and I scuba dived and had real good Caipirinhas and witnessed a Town Birthday with lots of cake and a carnival twice and made lots of photos. On the downside, 4 days before my flight home I was mugged and my camera taken... Lots of good pics on there because the hostel computer didn't have a card reader and I stupidly forgot my usb cable at home... So I only have about half the pics I made and all of those taken in Olinda (the most beautiful World Heritage city, lots of cute colorful buildings and like 17 churches) and Salvador are lost. *snuffles*
On the upside, now that I don't have a digicam my boyfriend decided that we really need to have one, because Antigone 2.0
is going to be performed again, so he told me to buy a good camera with our combined money and guess what I bought! A Canon EOS 400D! *giggles* I'm really happy I had an excuse to do that, I wouldn't have dared to with my own money... Students have to save up and all that... Anyway, it's going to be shipped next week and I'm sooo excited! (*stops babbling like a 14-year-old*) Oh well. *g*
And uni has started again, which is great on one hand, because I kinda missed having to do useful stuff, but we're squeezing one semester in 8 weeks to have lots of time to study for state examinations, which means studying hard. Which I'm trying to do, believe me. But my computer is evil. She's corrupting me to do anything but study...
Oh, and brandybuck

for detailed rules and prizes, I'm really looking forward to your submissions!
On another thought, I've been wondering if anybody ever reads my journal... I usually read the journals of the people I watch (or anybody I come across, really) but I'm nosey. So I thought, if you do read my journal, comment on this one and put a thumb/link to one of your deviations in the comment and I'll feature all thumbs in my next yournal.
And finally, there's some new recent favorites/inspirations of mine:
