I'm currently studying for a BA in Classics at the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David. It involves much Latin and Ancient Greek and is therefore perfect for me. Sadly I don't get any choice on my modules next year - my languages are compulsory and I also need to do 'Research Methods' and something called the 'Classics Project' which apparently is a mini dissertation. I have no idea what I'm going to do for either that or my actual dissertation as yet.

I want to teach Latin when I finish my course so that means taking a PGCE as well. People keep saying there aren't any jobs for Latin teachers but I've definitely seen some about so I'm confident that I will be able to continue doing what I love in future.

Do Latin and Ancient Greek count?

Because. Those.

I want to do German again.

I'm collecting my empty Marmite jars, as of today. Because I felt like it. Read more... )

The Island, Pt 1 (Dawn) by Pendulum.

Or MK ULtra by Muse.

No and no. Telling people my feelings has always been something I struggle with, even now.

The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed.

Something like that, anyway.

Day 30 - Your favorite game of all time.

AW, SHIT. I have. No. Clue. There are so many games that I love and that I'd be so sad if I never got to play again but that said, the one game I've missed being able to play for the last... 4 months or so is Resident Evil 5.

We'll go with that.

Pokemon Heart Gold is pretty fucking fabulous though.

Video Game Meme. )

Day 5: Grass

Not a massive fan of grass pokemon. However:

My Roserade, named Alexia, served me very well indeed in Diamond.

Also, all my Pokemon were named after RE characters. The PC was Chris. The rival was Wesker. I didn't realise how hideously inappropriate that was until it was too late.

Feel like P Diddy.

Okay, really, I smack at the alarm if that's what woke me up and spend about five minutes contemplating the state of the Latte (generally a state of 'I hate awakeness'). Then I roll out of bed, and usually check my laptop if I have time. If I'm getting up for work, I shuffle downstairs to try and have some breakfast. I'm not very good at food in the mornings, espeecially right away, so I prefer when I get a chance to do something else instead.

Eh, that's about it.

A Latte for every day of the year would cost a lot more than $10,000. Just sayin'.

Er, but really, a bunch of video games. And a plush Cyndaquil - oh my god I could afford that Wesker action figure AT LAST.

I have this ability to re-read books a ridiculous number of times. There's no limit on how many times, and I'll happily read stupidly long series again and again. I read Lord of the Rings for a fourth time over the summer, The Bartimaeus Trilogy again, I've read IT and The Stand about three times each. Same for The Dark Is Rising Sequence. I like to go and discover bits that I hadn't noticed before. You'd think I'd run out of stuff to notice on the fourth read but sometimes a plot point will just click and I'll go OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Heh. I love Michael Buble anyway and just... well. Yes. This song just feels kind of perfect, okay? LITTLE KNOWN FACT: I'M A HORRIBLE SAP. YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

...Oh, as if you had to ask, when the answer's in the question title!

Robbie Williams. Okay, there are singers with better voices (much better, yeah), but he is a fantastic entertainer too and I just love the energy he puts into his songs. He knows how to work a crowd and I always like to watch his concerts when they get played on TV.

Rudebox wasn't one of his greatest moments, however.

My naaame is Natalie, or Natalie Marie~

I like my name, I couldn't really imagine having another name, though I wouldn't mind being referred to as Marie, actually, because I think that's quite pretty. I like how the names run together. I'm quite used to being called Latte as well now, and Elata, irl thanks to Expo.

What I've usually found funny is that my friends tend not to call me Nat for short, it's usually just my teachers and family who do that.
suckmy12inch: (how do i shot logic)
[Error: unknown template qotd]
Hmm. Well, I tend to be pretty shy when faced with new people, I take refuge in being polite. It can take me ages to make friends but I'm a lot better now than I used to be - for almost all of my first year at seconday school, I had no friends to hang out with and spent every lunchtime on my own in the library. It takes someone with a talkative personality to get me talking back, I guess.

Er, as to benefits? I suppose if people can't get to know you, they can't know what'll hurt you the most. On the flipside, you've got no one to share anything with, no one to bounce off and no one just to give you a hug when you need it and boy, that really sucks.

I would make everyone study Latin.

UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. The problem with spending a day with Wesker, sexy as he is, is the fact that he has a habit of killing people.

Oh, you know what'd be awesome? Chilling with Vash from Trigun.
suckmy12inch: (HOLY SHIT)

A lot of video games, actually, and not even really scary ones (I can't say I was badass and played the RE games when I was a lot younger). Actually, the worst one was a Mario game on the N64. In one of the levels, there was this big mountain thing with a walking bomb king that chased you about and it scared the hell out of me. I used to keep going up there, thinking that THIS TIME I would kill it but then as soon as it started after me, I jumped back down.

The Bug's Life game scared me as well... didn't like the giant bird very much.
