I found a flat, though, despite my anxious and furious studying. I'll be living in Potters Bar next year, instead of my original plan of staying in London. It's cheaper, and I can have a car if necessary. One bedroom place all to myself, with a gas stove and a bath tub! I'll be living in luxury for sure.
Anyway, just wanted to drop a note saying that yes, I'm still alive and no, I won't be fully functional until after July 4th.
