Just about to head of to uni…I’m in for 5 hours today, blurrghhh. I know I shouldn’t complain, it’s not like I have to get up at 7 every morning and go to work. I’m just so goddam lazy these days! It’s my mum’s birthday today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!), I’m heading off to Beverly tonight for a pizza to celebrate. Tomorrow I’m going to the cinema with Laura to see War Horse and eat some more food :) I’ve handed in my application, just waiting patiently for a phone call now, I really hope it works out! Fingers/toes/arms/legs/ crossed!
I was so, so cold. I put on 5 different jackets just to go downstairs and brush my teeth.
I just realised that the new guy in Underworld: Awakening is that dick in the Inbetweeners film, the one that gets poo on his nose. He’s so different, I didn’t even recognise him. I’m just full of interesting facts….
Unpacked and all that. I’m bloody knackered! Made the mistake of thinking Asda would be quiet on a Sunday…error! I collected my disposable pictures today, and only 13 came out :( But the ones that did are nice, so it’s all good. Here’s a few of my favourites :)
Haha, I almost forgot. When I parked up in Hull today I made a new friend:
He/she jumped right into my car, he didn’t want to leave either, so strange! Destined to be an old cat lady, haha.
I also received a lovely letter today, I will reply as soon as my hands unfreeze from this cooollld house!
P.s…I found a pack of cigarettes in my car today, anyone leave them there? Probably best to ask this on facebook haha, although I think I know who they belong to!
I’ve had such a weird week. My head is all over the place right now. It’s like literally one hour I feel like life couldn’t get any better and then the next I want to scream and shout and HIT SOMETHING. Haha, maybe I’m going through the menopause…at 19… Anywho, I’m going to put in an application on Monday and wait and see if I’m successful. I don’t want to elaborate right now in case it doesn’t work out, but we’ll see. I been umming and arrring all weekend, I have so much doubt in my head right now but I think that’s mainly down to feeling poo. I know that if I don’t go for it I’ll regret it massively. It’s my mum’s birthday on Tuesday, and I’m back at Hull tomorrow. Got a few nice things planned, and by Thursday I can chill out about uni work (other than the vast amount of books I have to read…). I just wish that sometimes things would stay constant! My mind needs a holiday.
And my Mum wrote me a letter this morning before she went to work. So much love for her!
So today I turned in another essay for last semester. I thought it would be a normal day, where nothing bad happens….
First thing to go wrong… the gate fell on me as I opened it. Oh and this random guy saw it happen, lol.
Then I find lots of lovely mouse droppings in a left over pizza box, although I admit, it was obviously going to happen.
So I decide to clean up…and I thought I saw a MASSIVE spider jump from martins cornflakes. I managed to get my camera around the microwave to see what had scared the bejesus out of me. And I found this little head poking out. Say hello to my little furry friend.
And in case you can’t see him very well…
I can’t do this, Sam.
I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
What are we holding onto, Sam?

Oh my god. I just read an old email saying that the deadline for my essay is in for the 20th of jan…which was on Thursday. I shat my pants and nearly had a mental breakdown, then I thought, wtf… I’m sure it was in the handbook that it’s in for feb. Looked again… it was an email for a medieval studies aimed at first years, which is a module I did last year by the same tutor I have now. Why haven’t they taken me off the module so I don’t get stupid emails that fuck me up! Such bad organization skills!
I need a holiday.
Which is great because my mum’s booked a cottage in Cornwall for September, wooo :) And it has a hot tub, double woooo.
These are my new glasses by the way…
I’m going to look like such a nerd…on top of my already nerdy demeanour (:
Really enjoyed last night :) This picture makes me giggle.
I just bought some new glasses today. This is a big deal, I’ve been wearing the same glasses since I was like 14… And their ‘cool’. Well, sort of. I hope I don’t look like a complete dick in them anyway! Will find out on Saturday…
Chin up mate, could be worse :) you could be ginger…….
Ehhhhhh. I’m really not looking forward to my life in the new few months.
I went to uni to hand in two of my big ass essays, I was stood at the box for 15 minutes re-reading everything and getting stressed about stuff that wasn’t right (stupid because once you submit it electronically there’s no going back anyway!) But it’s over now, they’ve gone to mr marker and I sincerely hope my efforts have paid off. Still got two more essays to go but that’s another story haha.
It’s very, very cold today. I’ve just taken Dylan out and my hands and face are totally numb. But it was worth it because the sky was beautifullll.
However, the best part of my day today was receiving a letter from my beautiful best friend. I apologise for reading it so late, and will get a reply back asap :) It made me LOL, and reminded me how lucky I am to be friends with a bear. *PSYCHIC HUG* loltastic.
Fuck fuck fuck, I hate submitting essays. Especially when they are worth 70% of my final mark for that module. Argh!
That beautiful moment when your student loan comes through… on fucking time.
Look at my lovely bruise from Thursday, it goes all the way down my hip!
MMMMMMMM Chinese tonight at my favourite restaurant with the lovely Laura. I’m going to order spare ribs, seaweed, spring rolls, prawn toast, egg fried rice, sweet and sour chicken…. NOM NOM NOM.
But more importantly, I get to see my musical friend, it’s been too long!
And I love my grandma, just saying.
I have had an amazing two months.
love love love love love my friends :)
Well, I have a massive bruise on my hip and very sore feet. My dog threw up in my room this morning and then stole the only bread we had left which was readily buttered for my bacon sandwich. However! I had such a great night, a perfect send off for an amazing friend. Pictures will be up…some time today.
Just cracked open a bottle of wine
wicked to get the night started… on my own… in my room…. haha forever alone.
This new game looks amazing.
Arghhh the sneaky badger pinned me right at the last second!!!! Hate bidding on ebay!
Going to sam’s in a bit (after my ebay item has ended) to watch underworld and cheer Rory up. Got such a busy few days planned! Ice skating tomorrow then maybe the cinema with mum if she feels like it, chappers’ meal on thursday then brid If I get enough work done. Friday/ Saturday hopefully I’ll be going for a belated chinese with my friend Laura :) And on top of it all I’ve got essays to finish and to tweak, busy but looking forward to it all (except maybe the essays) :)

This afternoon for an hours respite, I took my brother and Dylan to the sea side.
I love Danes Dyke, I’ve been going their since I was a little girl and it holds a lot of good memories. The sea was quite far in, and it’s deep here, so every time we threw something in the sea Dylan had an epic swim there and back, he looked like a little seal, haha.
It’s such a pity I don’t see the sea as much as I should considering how close it is. Sometimes I don’t know how lucky I am.
Puppy ready for his walk
I really want to go to New Zealand this summer, so I can pretend to be a ginger hobbit.
Today I watched the sun rise at 7:45am and set at 16:40, all because of a little man who needed his walk. For that reason, today has been special.
Well, sort of….
Cinema tonight with chappers, I think everyone else is hungover. Going to see Sherlock homes and stuff my face with Mcdonalds, hopefully by then this stupid essay will look somewhat finished and I can finally relax. Even though I have two more to go…haha all I seem to do is talk about them, they are consuming my life! I probably have about one week left before I return back to Hull. It’s been nice at home, although I’m looking forward to having my own work space again in my little room.
Seriously craving a Chinese after 6 and a half hours of typing and re-typing.
I’ve just realised that I’ve approached my question in completely the wrong way. I’m going to have to basically re-write it and I’ve wasted nearly a whole weeks worth of time. Sometimes I feel like giving up.
It is very, very windy today. Dylan and I (yes practising my proper English after my tutor ripped the shit out of my essay), almost got blown away. My neck hurts because I’ve been sat at this computer for several hours :( But I managed to get to the half way point today, only 1500 words to go… ONLY! Then another essay next week, and then another one after that… :’(. Going to make home-made pizza’s tonight and watch the rest of Idiot Abroad 2, I actually have so much respect for Karl Pilkington. I’d never get into a metal tank surrounded by sharks!
Oh, and last night, I learnt that I am shit at Halo. And any shooting game for that matter. Had a lot of fun though, being uber nerdy :)
Bloody weather! Thought I’d woken up to a hurricane this morning…probably shouldn’t have left my window open last night.
Blerrrghhhhhhh 780 words down, generally not happy with this essay though, I have no idea if I’m approaching the question right or what. Just going to do my best and hope it’s enough…and get my mum to proof read it, haha. Heading to chappers’ house for a good old gaming session, I haven’t seen him, (or anyone else for that matter) in timeeee! Can’t believe he’s going to Germany in two weeks, going to miss him like mad! I have so much work to do over the next two weeks, I feel like I’ve wasted so much time. However, last week was amazing. I spent so much time with my best friend and am slightly heart broken at the fact she’s gone so soon. But there’s no point being sad, it’s not like she’s in another country, and it’s Easter in 4 months so I’ll see her again in no time :)
I have no new year resolutions. I’m sick of planning and making goals, because things never really work out the way I want them to. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because sometimes what I want is the exact opposite of what I need. I just have to make the most of what I’ve got. For me, acceptance is the key to happiness.
