Ordering fridge words

Apologies for the lack of posts - this term's been a fairly hectic one balancing university/home/other life-related things, so I haven't had much time to think of something worth posting. Now it's the Easter break, I have an essay and a dissertation to write as well as revision, so I probably won't write much in the next few months. That said, I started up this blog during exam season last year, so maybe it'll serve as a procrastination tool.

Anyway, last week I felt a bit bored at one point and decided to order the fridge-magnet words. I mentioned in an earlier post that I'd made them all face up: this time I placed them all on the fridge by letter so that all of the a-words were together, followed by the b-words, etc. Yesterday as an essay-break I arranged them into alphabetical order: this was made easier by the fact that they were already in letter order. I had fun ordering them, it cleared my mind a fair bit. Amy said that they seemed intimidating like that, since nobody would want to ruin the pattern by making sentences on the fridge with them. To be honest, I'm happy enough for them to be moved around and mixed up again - I think of it like when I order my books on the shelves, it's not going to stop me from reading them and putting them back in the wrong place. There's just something about putting them in order that makes me smile, even if they don't necessarily stay in order for long.

What else has been going on? I finished my project on Asperger Syndrome for my dissertation, now I just need to write it up. I should really get back to my other essay now (on the concept of 'resilience'), I might blog about my project another time.
