Yes, I'm not dead, I'm just very very very busy with my new job in Holland.
So far everything is pretty darn awesome - the people I work with are very nice, the university itself seems well equipped, the town is beautiful, the clubs are fun, the beer is very good, and my new flat (that I picked online from photographs) is not only very nice but also extremely well located in a nice area.
Mostly I keep looking over my shoulder and wondering when it's all going to explode or if I'm about to wake up and the last twelve months will have been a dream. I had a distinctly odd feeling a couple of days ago - I was standing on the balcony, eating my breakfast as the sun shone down on the lovely gardens out the back of my flats, and it all seemed incredibly unreal... Can this really be my life?
I start lecturing on Monday, so we'll see if I'm still so in love with it all after that!
Anyway *waves* hello!
In other news, I've also come up with an idea for this year's Halloween story. I'm going to try and make it an animation but it might have to be an audio short story if I don't have enough time.
