Can I get a 'hell yeah'!?

I ran my first sub-one-hour 10k this morning!! Woot woot!!! Perhaps it was the music I was listening to. Started out with The Prodigy's Firestarter, and it kinda went from there. I set up a 'running' playlist on my iPod before heading out this morning - all relatively fast-paced, upbeat music. Much as I like listening to classical and other types of slower music, it's not the kind of stuff that keeps you moving, y'know? Either way, I was rather chuffed, and danced around like an idiot to Heya by Outkast when I got home, before having my shower. Probably annoyed Deane, who was still in bed... That's what you get for sleeping in until nearly 10 o'clock! ;-P

Also, finally finished reading A Game of Thrones by George R R Martin. It's a really good book, but I thought it would never end!!! See, I have the first four books on my Kindle, and they're all lumped together, so the little progress bar at the bottom creeps along incredibly slowly. You can read a whole chapter, and the percentage count won't even change! Makes you feel like you're getting nowhere. And the second book's longer, and the third one longer again! Still, as I said, they're really good. I think I'll wait a while before starting the second one though - I have a truckload of reading to do for my studies now, and light reading would be better for recreational purposes, methinks.

Ooh, speaking of studies, I'll be submitting my first assignment next week. OMG, I'm so nervous!! What if it's no good? What if I get an E? (Yes, they do actually have those, it's for a score of 0-39%). This assignment counts for 30% of my total mark. Gosh, I hope it's okay...
