Just thought I would actually update for once. Am somewhat bored and have very little do at the minute, am having a break from doing work. Bah.
So . . . recently I have been doing uni work and very little else. Have been having a bit of a breakdown, alas, I didn’t realise just how much work this course was. I envy those who only have to write essays. I have to write essays and make historically accurate breeches from the 17th Century. And my teachers keep changing their minds about how they want me to do them. Flibble. I also managed to lose one piece of the trousers :S not quite sure how I managed that.
So yeah, uni is fun; all of us over the past few weeks have questioned why we’re here.
I have also been ill for the past 3 weeks, joy of joys. I’ve had a stupid cold and cough which only seems to like acting up at night now so I can’t sleep, so I don’t want to get up and do anything in the morning. For instance I was going to go to Stonehenge today with Adi and her friend, but the thought of getting up this morning at 7 nearly killed me. Which is annoying because I wanted to go, but I went into uni instead and actually did work, so I suppose it was all good.
I got lucie to bleach my hair again on Monday, so I no longer have stupid roots, woo! My hair has been an impressive number of colours. But for some reason they all turn green in the end :s I started off with green, kept that for a few months, got bored and dyed it blue. Which then turned green. Explain that one. Finally got round to bleaching it out 2 months later, expect that the bleach didn’t quite work, my hair was partly yellow-blonde and partly minty green. Very strange. We tried dying it “eggplant red” which also didn’t work, it was meant to be a funky deep red, but it’s kind of neon red, and in certain lights it’s bright pink. But everyone keeps telling my how good it looks, and how they like it more than the green. Humph, I’m going back to green after it’s been red, and then purple, oh yes, I have it all planned out. Haven’t told my mother what colour it is yet, she didn’t like the green too much, not sure she’ll like this colour either.
Enough about my hair.
Haven’t really been doing anything interesting recently. Went round lucie’s yesterday and her and noel got stoned while I cooked chips and pizza for them (I didn’t trust lucie with electricity when she’s like that). Me and noel also had to make an emergency run to wilkinson’s to buy lucie chocolate, which was quite funny considering we were wandering round Bournemouth town centre and noel had a flower on his cheek and a peace sign on his face drawn with red lip liner.
They’ve decided that they’re going to have a 60’s party and get stoned with loads of people, but they want to do it this weekend, and of course I’m at home this weekend. Poo. But apparently they’ll do it again in April when we all have money, and I’ll make hash cakes. Heheh.
Just got incredibly distracted by Noel then, filling me in on all the gossip. Apparently he’s been bitching with some of the 3rd years about one of our teachers, she’s a complete bitch and is just here to make us feel bad about all of our work.
Thinking of Noel, it was so funny earlier at lunch, we were just sat outside on the benches so the others could all smoke and Alex(andra) pulled out one of Noels (gay) porn magazines that he’d given to her yesterday as a laugh. So there was about 6 of us just sat there giggling over these naked men, and trying to hide the magazine every time someone walked past, which didn’t work too well considering there were naked men on the front and back covers. Hehehe, my friends are so weird.
Ok, have eaten an entire pack of cookies while writing this, but I did feed Noel some, decided that I was going to make him fat and then cook him, mwahaha!
We’re going flat hunting tomorrow, we’ve been really unsuccessful so far, I’ve found about 15 houses/flats for us to look at but only 3 of them were available still, and 2 of the owners were on holiday. So we’ve looked at one flat which me and Adi really love and want to live in, but Noel hasn’t looked at it yet, so we’re going tomorrow afternoon and looking at somewhere cheaper in the morning. I love the flat so much, it has 2 double bedrooms and 1 single, I told them that I’m having a double seeing as I found the place. Good size kitchen, huge, and I mean HUGE lounge with a balcony, and the view is amazing. The house is literally on the edges of the woods, so all you can see through the back windows and balcony is woodland, and the path through the woods is just outside the back garden, which means that we can walk into town in 10 minutes, unless Adi is with us, and then it’s 20 minutes. But hopefully she’s going to get a car for next year so we can drive into uni, woohoo! No buses and no walking through the woods at ridiculously early hours of the day.
It’s also availably from July so I can move straight from halls to flat, which is fantastic, because that way Adi doesn’t have to put her stuff into storage (she usually lives in New York).
Thinking of New York, I’m hopefully going in November with uni, as long as I pay my deposit this week. Am really looking forward to it, our theme next year is going to be Broadway, so that’s where we’re going, as well as a few other places, and Adi said she can take us to the best places for shopping. She also said that her mother will want to take us out for breakfast etc, so we get to see some of the more expensive places as well.
Should probably mention that I’m living with 2 people next year, Adi who is from New York and Jewish, and her family have a fair amount of money, but she’s been put on a limit this term because she maxed out her credit card just after Christmas :S
The other person is Noel, who’s a complete cliché, he really is the only gay in the village. But we don’t say that because he doesn’t find that funny anymore. But he’s fantastic. Next year should be very interesting, living and working with them.
I really need to get a job, am going to hand in an application form to a really cool place in Bournemouth. It’s called All Fired Up, and you can go in and pick a ceramic object and paint it anyway you like and they’ll fire it for you and you can pick it up within the next week. We spent 5 ½ hours in there on Saturday :s got a bit carried away making a plant pot of Carrie’s birthday saying “Où est le singe? Le singe est dans le fromage.” Which is something she says constantly.
I think I’ve written far too much, so if you’ve actually gotten this far then reply! I miss hearing from people. If I do actually get the job then I’ll most likely be staying here over summer, so people are welcome to come and visit me, please? My bed’ll be big enough for two! Anyway, I’m going to go read Preacher now. It took a few years, but Matt can finally say “I told you so” cos I started buying comics, or rather graphic novels. Noel says I’m lame, I say he needs to read them.
Anyway, I’m gone.
( Oh and apparently I'm evilCollapse )
