So my undergraduate degree is over

To be honest, it feels kind of anti-climatic!

I'm curious

I have a question for you all. Comments will be screened and anon commenting on.

The question boils down to this; what is wrong with me?

People don't invite me out, they rarely even respond to my own invitations to come do stuff (here I owe [livejournal.com profile] sweetcyanide an apology because she has invited me and she was the only person to respond to something I sent a few people). To everybody else, why is it that although you're happy to have me as an acquaintance nobody wants me as a close friend? Why are people happy to say hello to me but not to actually spend time with me?

I want you all to be honest with me. Don't leave comments telling me I'm wonderful - it's obviously a lie. Tell me what you really think is wrong with me. Be it that I seem scary or that I'm a complete fucking twat.

I know some of you on here are literary types, so I was wondering if you could give this a read through if you have a spare half hour and leave me some C&C.

I know that at the moment it appears slightly directionless (mostly because at the time I started writing it was for an RPG not a story) but I've a few ideas floating around and want to try and pull it into shape before going much further. So yes....

Edit:please ignore the fact that a random paragraph is in capitals. No idea why it is, so just read it as if it wasn't :)

Hmmm.....

Inspired by a conversation with [livejournal.com profile] luger_, what's your honest opinion of me?

I've enabled anonymous posting, so I won't know it's you! Tell me what you really think about me.

Go on. You know you want to!

As you all know my interview at Cambridge is on Dec 5th, and I'm trying to decide what to wear. I don't want to go in typical Cambridge-smart clothes, i.e. expensive skirt suit, court shoes etc as it's just not me. Below are (I hope >.>) pictures of the outfit I propose to wear, would you say I looked smart?

A rant

Yes
I'm going to rant
Not about people I know for once, but the idiots who come out of the woodwork every year just before exam results and tell the nation that the grades thousands of students have slaved to acheive are useless. They've been "dumbed down"
Have they bollocks
If they're that sure A levels are easy they should sit a friggin paper themselves

Now, no offence to anybody on my friends list who has taken any of the following subjects, but one of the reasons that they are citing this year for A grade passes being worth less is the high number of students taking vocational subjects, which are no longer purely VCEs but can count as double A levels. I find it hard enough to comprehend even within my own subject range how acheiving the 66% required to acheive an A in Psychology can be made comparable to the 82% required to acheive an A in Maths, but at least both subjects are exam tested. Subjects such as Travel & Tourism, Media Studies, Film, Leisure & Recreation, although good vocational qualifications can in no way be compared to Maths or Physics or even Geography (haha ok, slight bias there I have an irritational hatred and contempt of geography). Especially when the former subjects are almost purely coursework based.

I don't see anything wrong with vocational subjects, and in fact I'm in great support of them, it can be just what people need to encourage them to continue learning. What is irritating me is that these subjects, where people can gain a double A grade based almost purely on coursework where they are constantly monitored and guided then cheapen the value of the A grades that people have worked so hard to acheive in academic based subjects.

Erm, yeah
*gets down off soapbox*
This is an issue which has upset me only recently, but the original issue, before I went off on a tangent has upset me for countless years

So, as my final statement I shall wish all those waiting for exam results, tomorrow or next thursday, or whenever your results are released, GOOD LUCK!!!

All my entries will be friends only

I know too many people who read my journal without me knowing and it un-nerves me slightly

If you comment, you'll be added if I know you, or you can prove you're worthy to read of my wonderful life!

Meh I have to work tonight, I can't be arsed with it! It's too hot to be in the kitchen
Especially with the prick of a new chef
And it's the bastard charity golf club dinner *is hoping it means lots of tips at least*

On happier notes......
Last day of school today
Got my timetable and it works out perfectly for me to do a work experience placement one afternoon a week all year, even though I'm doing drama after school. Woohoo! (And yes, working in a primary school full of snotty kids is a cause for happiness :p)

Also, as I only had one lesson today I did some admin work for my maths teacher all day. She paid me £25 out of her own pocket for a few hours work. And by work I mean I went through piles of her stuff and binned most of it! I'm sure I shouldn't have been allowed to see a lot of what I did though. Nor should she have just binned it without shredding it in any way! It was highly confidential some of it. Ah well, her who'd be in trouble, not me!

Erm......... Nope, can't think of anything else to update with really
So........

Au revoir mes petites choulfeures!

Part Passionate Kisser


For you, kissing is about all about following your urges
If someone's hot, you'll go in for the kiss - end of story
You can keep any relationship hot with your steamy kisses
A total spark plug - your kisses are bound to get you in trouble

Part Shy Kisser


You *do* love to kiss, once your comfortable with it
And that means knowing the person you're kissing pretty well
You usually don't make the first move when it comes to making out
But you've got plenty of intensity in return





Does anybody else feel that those two should be mutually exclusive?!?

I was gonna be lazy and just link you all to Graeme's journal and add random comments but decided it was about time I spammed all your friends pages with nice long posts again so changed my mind!

Thursday I went to the Cambridge open day. Which was nice. Even if it did take me an hour and a half to find a bus stop...... Homerton's a really nice college, the people are nice, the admissions tutors were nice, and yes, I'm deliberately overusing the word nice =p Nah, lets just say, I was very happy with what I saw and am definitely going to be applying to Cambridge. Yay for me picking a course where grade based offers are lowered if you have good teaching potential!

Unfortunately, the London bombings happened just after I left London. I didn't find out about 3 of them until lunchtime at the Open Day, and I became very shaken when I realised that I should have been in Kings Cross, on the circle line tube train when the bomb exploded there. So, thank you to those of you who cared and found out how I was. I truly appreciate it. And who put up with my freaking out about missing out on being involved because I decided to get an earlier train.

It did mean that I was stranded in Cambridge..... People are amazingly nice in a crisis. I had 2 offers to stay with people in Cambridge, an offer from Homerton to use their accomodation and an offer from people living in Bath to drive me home. Which I accepted!

Which meant I was home in time to go to the theatre where we saw an amazing piece of physical theatre which we are going to use as the starting point for our devised piece. Meaning I get to have fun doing lots of random moving around, jumping, walking up walls using pullys.... ^^

Friday I boarded a train at 10 minutes past 10 (having packed my bag for the weekend in 5 minutes. Needless to say I forgot stuff........) Bound for......... BRISTOL! Fun huh?!? *laughs* Where I boarded another train which took me (eventually) to York. There I found a certain special somebody who's only acknowledgement of me was to wave a copy of the Sun at me! Well, to begin with anyway! We hugged and kissed and I laughed at Graeme's inability to move his suitcase before heading off into York town centre. We wandered round, Graeme got distracted by sharp things, I got bought a present (Robin Hood ^^ Yay! Nobody can tape over it now!) we kissed some more then decided as we still had to find a B&B we should head into Scarborough. We checked into pretty much the first B&B we found. Lazy? Us? Never! It was quite nice though, even if the guy on the reception desk had no idea what he was doing!

Friday night we went down to the beach to have a look, found amusements, got distracted for rather a long time, went and found chips then got distracted by the amusements again... We wandered back along the beach to our hotel, which was a very movie moment *laughs* Or cheap romance novel, one of the two!

Saturday morning we finally got out of bed over an hour after the alarm went off. As I said before, Lazy? Us? Never! and went down for breakfast, which apparently we'd booked for 8 o'clock. We assured the woman that we hadn't and had breakfast before trying to find the University. Hull University at Scarborough was around a 40minute walk away from where we were staying. We arrived, went on a 20minute tour and promptly left! I later worked out that to get on the course there all I needed were D's in my exams this year....... Doesn't imply it will give me a decent mental challenge! So, it MAY stay on my list, but it will definitely only be accepted if I fail all my exams for some unknown reason.

So we walked the 40minutes back to town and bought sandals and buckets and spades and went on the beach! We built sandcastles, Graeme built more but mine were better :p, then knocked them all down, taking photographs of it! We paddled in the sea after that (the water was NOT cold G =p) then found tack shops and wandered round those. After going back to the hotel to dump buckets and spades we went to the amusements again. We won lots of random crap such as an aeroplane toy, a UFO shaped spinner game, a packet of mini crayons, a fingerboard, a tigger keyring (MINE!), a Homer keyring and a Barbie wallet.

We ate (eventually!) and got back to the hotel where I discovered a hole in my leg..... Only I could gouge a hole in my leg without noticing! It's finally healed today I think, still bleeds a little bit ocassionally but *shrugs* it doesn't seem to be bleeding as much!

Sunday morning we missed breakfast through pure laziness! We got out of bed around 10ish and tidied up the room, which was a surprisingly large mess for saying we'd only been there 2 days! We went to Scarborough train station, got a train to York and realised we'd increased our hour wait there to a 2hour one because we'd gone early *laughs* So 2 hours was spent in The Lemon Tree there taking lots of random photos! Then, I had to leave him..... That wasn't fun. Well, making faces through the train window was. Especially as I'm sure the woman in the seat in front thought Graeme was making faces at her....... I had a fairly uneventful journey, getting into Bristol 5 hours later, settling myself down for an hour wait and realising a train to Chippenham left in two minutes! So I ran down and up stairs to the other side of the station and managed to catch it.

I was expecting to be in serious trouble when I got home..... My dad had originally been told I was going to Scarborough with Sarah. which I was. I just didn't deign to tell him that she was no longer coming! So when he found out apparently he went mad. All he said to me was that he knew I was lying *shrugs* Yay for being away for 12hours after he found out!

Meh, I'll stop there, written more than anough. Definitely gonna be spamming up your friends page! And if anybody wants to know more, read Graeme's journal, doubtless he'll have included stuff I forgot!!!

Quiz......
