WOHOOHOO! I signed up for the Toefl! Oh man, I was so worried it'd be too late - exam's on the 17th and I know they only let you register until 7 days before the date.

...OKAY, SO TODAY IS STILL THE 9TH, but-- what if they considered dates differently? What if this? What if that? What if that other thing? :O And so forth and so on. But seriously, if dad hadn't managed to fix the modem by tonight (and just tonight he did) I would have been in trouble :( ...okay, okay, maybe not exactly "trouble", there would have still been the 31st, but. You know.

OH WELL.

Ha! Ha! One more thing before I go to sleep! There's this story I read and that I fell in love with - it's called The Great Divide, the second part is here, and it's a Dark Tower fanfiction. (Incidentally, I STRONGLY recommend you read the 7th book first, if you haven't.) Oh, and it's awesome. In case you were, like, wondering or something. It's driven, it's intense - and in the days after I read it I found myself working hard to keep the fanfiction facts separate from the canon facts, it fit in so well. Ha ha, I am so not joking.

And I'm shitty enough that I haven't posted a review yet! Grah! Granted, I have hardly been online lately, but that's no excuse :( Okay, maybe it is. STILL. I've printed it out (only way for me to read anything with some ease, really), though, so at least I can take my time when I try to compose it. I'm telling you, it won't be easy - I felt so much of it acting so deep down, that putting it into words is going to take some work. ;)
So, I'll be taking the TOEFL pretty soon - I'd been postponing it for a while, because (a) it's only valid two years (though I've got to admit that it makes sense) and (b) it's not exactly cheap either - so this afternoon I did a trial test a friend had got for me.

I find amusing (and telling) enough that the only part of it I had real troubles it was the one where I was required to answer a question and/or give a personal opinion. The problem wasn't the answer itself - but that I had only 60 seconds to give it. Dude, I'd barely started by then! (You also have about 20 seconds before that, to organize your thoughts and plan your answer. Most of those seconds were a complete blank. Thinking before I speak? How do you go about doing that?)
