So you lucky people get a day by day run through of what I did =p
I got woken up at 8 so my mum could ask if I felt better. So I decided to stay up. I threw a big tantrum (as seen by my post) because I was trying on clothes to wear and none fitted. I left for Derby around 1 and spent a nice journey where my train was actually on time! I walked into Derby city centre and just as I got to starbucks where I was meant to be meeting my gran she rang me to say she was just leaving home and would be 20minutes! So, remembering I needed toothpaste I wandered off to the market where I bought conditioner then realised I could get toothpaste from the poundshop, so I went there and saw camera films which reminded me I needed one, so bought some and wandered back to Starbucks where I sat outside smiling at hearing familiar accents whilst waiting for my gran. When she arrived I went in, ordered two hot chocolates (mmmmmmm hot chocolate.......) and realised I'd still forgotten toothpaste! At which point the shops were about to shut so I ran over to the shop, realised I'd left my money in starbucks, ran back, got a dirty look off the shopstaff and finally managed to buy toothpaste. Heh, wow, who knew you could write so much about toothpaste...... Anyway, spent an hour happilly sat chatting to my gran, talking about my life, bitching about family ^^ Then she offered me a lift to the station in her taxi meaning I got there about 10 minutes early, not too bad, gave me chance to buy a paper and stuff but then my train was delayed by nearly half an hour. Bastard British Rail! At least the weather was ok, no rain or anything. So anyways, I went to Leeds and finally got to meet Kimmy XD Yay! Even if I wasn't sure it was her so stood looking at the departures board instead of going up >.> We waited for Rich and then made our way back to Kim's.
Once there we had pasta and spent the evening watching Big Brother and Freddy vs Jason which was good *nods* Although Rich, you REALLY need to watch the films!!!
Got up around 9ish and sat around waiting for Rich (again =p) to get up, then we headed into Leeds where Kim went job hunting before heading up to the Uni. Only to discover that they don't actually do the course I want to do as of the year I start. How helpful is that hmmm?!? So we looked at the maths department, the deserted IT department and some accomodation (there was some named after me! yay! I'm special >.<) which was not all that impressive at all TBH then went back to the city centre and wandered round for a bit. I fell in love with yet more clothes I can't afford. Damn you Kim for taking me there, all those corsets again *sighs* We went back to Kim's early evening and had great fun making a lot of mess and a hell of a lot of food! I swear we could have fed most of Leeds on it!!!! Then we watched more Big Brother and went to bed.
Got up at 8, repacked as I seemed to have gained a hell of a lot of crap and waited for a bus, we teased Kim about her wanting to be early and proceeded to miss the bus, have to wait half an hour for the next one and rush to get the train. Guess that's the last time I'll be mocking Kim about her time keeping! ^.^ I spent a nice long train journey going down to Totnes in Devon where I was meeting my RE group. I got there at quarter past 4 to learn they'd left Chippenham less than an hour before. So I wandered around Totnes (where everything shut at 4pm apart from a cafe where I got an ice cream which shut at 5.....) until sometime after 6..... We then made our way to Sharpham where we played random games to get to know the lower 6th better (heehee I'm upper 6th now XD) before dinner, which I have to say, was appalling! It was veg crumble, and it sounds nicer than it was! After which we went down the pub where they charged me £3.95 for a single vodka and orange, before going back and sleeping.
Got up, ate breakfast (all organic) then went to our first proper session. Where we learnt about our synoptic exam, which actually sounds quite interesting, if very very heavy! Did a few more sessions then walked into Totnes. A "10 minute walk" which, from previous experience I knew took 50! All up and down hills, in lots of heat *laughs* So good for my fitness hopefully! Walked back after spending a few hours there and had a session on Justice where we played an interesting game which really served to reinforce the unfairness of wealth distribution within our world. CBA explaining it, perhaps I shall do a nice ranty post later and explain it then. Then after dinner we played Singstar. I am now determined to buy a PS2 purely to own this game! It was the best fun ever! *laughs* Everybody joined in and sang at least once which was nice and it was just generally a good time ^^ (Made even better by the fact that my team won Woohoo!)
Got up, played Snakes & Ladders (there was an educational purpose, really, there was!) and held random conversations about at what point art becomes pornography and whether cucumbers were sentient. After lunch we went on a nature walk (yet again did it last yera but it was still fun) until of course the heavens opened! There were 2 storms, one either side of us so as you can imagine we all got rather wet! I ended up drying my jumper with my hairdryer the next day *laughs* In the evening we played Cranium. I don't know if anybody's ever played it but it's brilliant! So much fun and must be even better when drunk because it involves drawing and acting things out!
Had a short session on our synoptic then spent the rest of the morning playing card games with everybody! Everyone bar 3 students and one of the teachers sat around the tables in the dining room and we all had great fun playing Go Fish, Blackjack and other random games. after lunch though we had a 2 and a half hour session on our synoptic exam, which was just too long, especially as we were sat in a room with very comfy sofas that invited you to sleep! The evening however saw the one and only "Ammerdown Quiz at Sharpham" yeah, the name could be catchier but it's great fun! Only the teachers know the actual rules and the best way to get points isn't through right answers but bribery and flattery! So each rounds answers were delivered by us with a new sweet treat, until the last round when we ran out of sweets so I gave them dried fruit! Which turned out to be our undoing, apparently they didn't like it and deducted 2 points, we lost by 1! *laughs* However, we manged to acheive full marks in the "Sexist" round and I managed to make an idiot out of myself in performance of our poem as I volunteered to produce actions to go with it. Great fun!
Planned to leave at 11, actually left at 1240 *laughs* got stuck in traffic near Taunton for nearly an hour, did a U turn because we heard they'd re-opened the motorway and finally managed to get food at half 4ish (we were due back in Chippenham for 3) finally got home at 6, after Mr Mid hit a car with the minibus ^^ No damage though which is good! Which brings me to here
Where I shall laugh at all those who read this through hoping for something interesting and tell all those who didn't that somewhere in there is something really funny, see if you can find it =p
I know people will most likely say "No, you're not, don't be silly" bollocks to you all, I am FAT. I know you're all trying to help me, and I appreciate that, I promise.
But the fact remains I know I'm fat
I can see myself in the mirror
I know that I've got an ever growing pile of trousers which no longer fit me
I know that my stomach hangs over the top of the trousers I have left that do fit me
I also know I have only myself to blame
I barely eat, but I know that when I do it's mostly things that are bad for me
I bare;y ever exercise. I used to love playing sports and used to go to the gym at least once a week often twice, but I'm a sociable person and my friends wont come with me anymore *shrugs* Not an excuse, but the reason I don't go all the same
So this post, is hopefully gonna do for me what pictures on fridges do to people on diets and encourage me to eat more healthily and exercise more.....
I hate being ill
Apparently I'm dehydrated (hence my headaches, dizzyness and queasiness for the past few days) and have a virus (hence the sore throat and being unable to move my neck. The triage nurse has told me I need lots of water, lots of sleep and lots of rest. Well, I've been doing that today anyway. And last night, I mean, I slept from 20 past 8 until half 11 this morning and then again from quarter past 2 until gone 4 when my mum woke me up to tell me she'd made me a doctor's appointment.
My mum doesn't want me to go up to Leeds tomorrow, but as I want to see my Kimmiekitty I'm gonna lie, say I feel better and go up anyway! I struggled round Coventry yesterday being unable to move my neck at all, I'm sure I'll be able to cope not being able to move it very much! And it's getting better all the time. I'll just have to dose myself up on ibuprofen. <3 to the ibuprofen!
What have I been doing since my last update? Answer = not much.
Ooo apart from deciding to book a trip to Thailand next year! It's an 8 week programme where I'll spend 5 weeks TEFL, half a week in a Buddhist monastry and the rest learning some Thai and doing touristy things ^_^ Will cost me about £3000 altogether because I need a minimum of £300 spending money to enter the country apparently! It'll be great fun though!
And it will also serve the added bonus of hopefully making me stand out on my Cambridge application. Especially as I'm gonna be applying for Education Route II and they assess your application on teaching experience/aptitude as well as academically.
Speaking of which I also started filling in my UCAS form. I thought visiting Uni open days was a scary reminder that I'm starting Uni next year but starting to fill in my UCAS form was scary as fuck!
Hmmm I don't know what else to write, nothing much ever happens to me. My life tends to go by the same pattern, with the odd night at work mid week when people don't turn up.
Shall edit if I think of owt exciting that has happened.
Au revoir mes cheres
I could lie and say it's because I'm too busy
But it's not
I just don't really know what to say......
My life is dull and repetitive mostly
I'm not angst ridden and in need of advice (or a good kick up the arse, whichever way you feel)
I don't write things that I can post here to get feedback
I don't draw
In fact, I have no real hobbies
I have no real interests
I'm a pretty apathetic person most of the time
I don't want to stop writing in here
But I don't want it to turn into the sort of place that people have talking only about how they want to kill themselves (I don't by the way, too much energy required)
I don't comment on other's journals
It's not because I don't care
But because I never know what to say
I'm becoming more and more distant from everybody
In real life
I'm slowly withdrawing into my own little world
I can see it happening but I don't want it to
But I don't know what to do about it
Looks like we're laughing at each other's funeral Graeme!
Quick update too
Not done much, not doing much =p
Nah, spent all day at school today doing maths but have done none tonight *hits self* I'm determined to get over 90% in this exam because I know I haven't done as well as I wanted with stats. Not that I'm a perfectionist who wants As >.> My teachers keep saying "Anyone with less than a C won't be accepted back next year" And I'm thinking I'd kill myself if I got a C, let alone less than one..... I got told my standards are too high yesterday.... Maybe they are *shrugs*

Got 3 exams tomorrow........

I just can't remember that volume of information all at the same time dammit
And I'm working tonight..... James rang and asked if I would earlier so I said I would. Meh he promised me drinks *laughs* And I would have gone down for at least a bit tonight because it's James and Jo's leaving do. Only problem is it's time I should have spent revising...... *shrugs* Ah well, can't win em all. And there's only so much I'm gonna try shove into my head anyway!
Heh got shot by a teacher today >.> Was stood talking to my maths teacher asking if he had a markscheme and my RE teacher from last year who always talks to me and stuff came in, put his fingers like a gun, put it against my head and said "BANG" >.< I got very confused and then he pouted and told me I should play dead *laughs* I think i have weird teachers..................

I know the first verse but I know there's at least a second which I heard once and never again
The first goes....
My mother said
I never should
Play with the gypsies in the wood
If I did
She would say
"Naughty girl to disobey"
I'm pretty sure the next verse is something along the lines of "Your hair won't curl your eyes won't shine something something child of mine" So any help would be appreciated!
2. Go to http://images.google.com/ and search for that word.
3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results (don't tell me the word).
4. Put this in your own blog so that I can do the same
Just been to a portrait sitting

What a load of bollocks! Well, it is kind of like me, but I'm sure any other number's description would be kind of liek me too! <\end cynicism>
I can never work out how people feel or what they want from me
I take things to heart that I shouldn't
And I say things that shouldn't be said
I try so hard sometimes to please people but it doesn't seem to work
One day I may give up trying
But for now, I shall continue as normal, go out of my way to make people happy and complain rarely
I apologise for that. Now onto happier matters!
I met Jo today! Again!
So much fun!
We went randomly wandering throughout Bath
Spent over an hour sat talking in McDonalds, half hour sat talking in Starbucks, and ages sat talking on benches! And on the pavement outside Superdrug, where we phoned M. Much to the disgust of the many people who had to skirt round us and the amusement of the French school walking along across the road!
Found the most gorgeous corset in Shrinking Violet, but I couldn't decide if it looked right or not and it was £40, which would have meant I couldn't afford to pay for my driving lesson tomorrow. Which would have been a bugger =p Damn not having enough money to pay for all the many things I want!
I did manage to persuade Jo to buy non-black clothes though! Nearly got as far as getting her some jeans with pink on but she ran out of money!
I slept for half hour when I got in, I'd been awake since quarter to 5! Damn people whinging about fidgeting! I was on the floor and I STILL got woken up by them! Guess who's gonna be going to bed early tonight....... ^_^
Meh, love you all! I should talk to most of you more often, I'm becoming quite un-conversational.....
Take last night
I had two
I can only remember vague details from both
But in one my mum had a lover who moved in with us. My dad seemed perfectly happy with this situation. I remember asking where the guy was sleeping but not the answer *laughs* I do NOT want to know what that says about my psychological state!
I'll have to try sort that out
Cept I'm no good with technology in any form!
Meh quick update
Erm, am hopefully painting my room tomorrow
Oh, no maybe not. Just remembered my mum and dad decided today we should all go out for lunch tomorow. Fun......
Least I now have an almost immaculately tidy bedroom!
Always look on the brightside eh?
Speaking of which has anyone seen the new Sprite cans which say "Every can has a silver lining"? I found those funny.......
Yeah, think I'm gonna go lie down before I hurt myself =p

Most are pretty damn accurate actually!
We decided on Friday night it would be fun to do a docu-soap at the pub so since then we've been making random narratitve comments the whole time! Especially last night when everybody was being taken off one at a time over friday and last night and we weren't. We were coming up with all sorts of conspiracy theories, but we knew what was going on. The new landlord and landlady are leaving. Which we've expected for a long time but stopped expecting in the past few weeks *laughs* Typical isn't it?
I'm a little bit annoyed though because a)Harriet and me were last to find out. I think they only told us together because otherwise one of us would be last completely. And b) I'm not allowed to tell my parents. Jo said I could but James decided that they shouldn't know. Just in case they tell somebody else down there. (My parents go to the pub where I work pretty much everyday)
In other news I'm at work again in less than an hour. Woohoo! It's a good job though really, I need the money! I've already spent nearly all of last weeks wages! Thank God I get paid weekly is all I can say!
( quiz thing... )
Now for updatey-ness *nods*
I went out last night for the first time in AGES (my dad being the insecure possessive worriable person he is doesn't like me going out!) and I had so much fun! Everyone (well I say everyone, by which I mean everyone I like >.>) went from work and a lot of those who used to work there and are back from Uni. There were 13 of us to begin with *laughs* We went to the Rosie first (although Harriet and me had finished work at 9 so had been drinking at the pub). We all got out the taxi and I walked in between Sue and Sarah as they're both in their twenties but as I was walking in the bouncer said "Excuse me" so I turned round thinking "Shit haven't even made into into the first pub >.<" but he just looked at me and apologised, and told me to go in which was a great relief! We got there about ten to 12 and then someone said "Doesn't Buds stop letting in at 12?" so we all had a mini panic before I remembered Catherine was in Buds so got her to ask what time they stop letting in. (It was half past!) . We then left Jo, James and Sue there becase they're boring and went up to Buds.
I saw Catherine and danced with her for a bit then she left.... So I went and bought a drink and I've just realised this is really boring....... So I'm just gonna say I had lots of fun, bought lots of drinks, spent lots of money, and skip to Chick O' land afterwards where I spent 15minutes waiting for food which then gave me the hiccups for a bloody hour!
I got home to discover to my shock that my mum was actually still awake at 3am waiting for me (which made me feel a bit guilty!) and then went and read for a bit before sleeping.
And today I have done nothing except read and come on here.
And it has taken me nearly an hour to write this because I keep getting distracted!
Oh and a on a random point I'm doing a survey for the National Consumers Union on a digital thing which is great fun and being paid £20 for it!BTW not sure if the quiz thing is working, if not let me know and I'll just get rid of it

Not because you have to, but because you WANT to! Things you enjoy, even when no one around you wants to go out and play. What lowers your stress/blood pressure/anxiety level? Make a list, post it to your journal... and then tag 5 friends and ask them to post it to theirs.
10 things that I find relaxing:
1) Listening to music
3) Making cakes
4) Talking to friends
5) Hugs (do they count?)
6) Having my hair played with
7) Pretty much any physical contact.... >.<
