A lot of people have like and/or reposted the wicked photoshop looter photo I posted so I thought I’d post the link as there are so many on there now. Enjoy!!!
Arghhhh it’s been forever since I’ve posted ANYTHING at all! I’m so sorry. Life has been hectic recently but some amazing things have happened. I’m the stage manager on one of the shows in our first semester back of our final year, one of my best friends, Faye, has had a baby girl called Cassie, my cousin Gemma will give birth any day to another little girl and a good friend from school called Kirsty is having twin boys at the start of next year. It’s baby mania!
Also, I went to the family courts yesterday with some family members to witness the adoption of a little girl who means a lot to all of us by my aunt and uncle :) welcome (officially) to the family Katy!!
I also just gave my two pugs a bath. Cash was brilliant just a little nervous whereas Phoebe, as always, started off a bit too quick for me. When I finished bathing Cash, I grabbed Phoebe and had to hold her down whilst I shampooed and rinsed her. It was rather funny and I was impressed how such a little dog could leap out of the bath so well. I got soaked, more so than them, and then we had a game of tug-o-war with some towels.
Another update is I am loving my job!!! Great people and I keep getting some extra hours which is good as I do need the money.
X-Factor is getting better all the time. The judges are awesome. The girl who sang the Adele song and had Kelly Rowland and Louis Walsh in tears also had me and my mum in tears too. She was extraordinary! And on Celeb Big Brother, Jedward are really making that show. They are brilliant! Closely followed by Bobby and Paddy. They are the only three I can continually watch as the others drive me mad. I think Darryn is a two faced, opinionated git who needs to learn to respect others and stop lecturing everyone, Kerry needs to grow the hell up the woman has four kids for crying out loud and she needs to stop chasing 19 year old Lucian, Amy is lovely don’t get me wrong but she is a bit irritating after a while. I loved it when she got to see her pug and got a bit emotional myself. I can’t stand leaving mine even to go out for a bit of shopping! Lucian is a lovely lad but he needs to stop chasing the girls. Amy keeps saying he’s not her type and then leads him along a bit and Kerry is quite patronising of him and it’s just annoying to watch. He talks a lot about people behind their backs but he’s not that bad especially compared to Darryn. Paddy is brilliant and it is lovely to see how much he adores his wife and Jedward wouldn’t hurt a fly. They live in Planet Jedward and have fun regardless. They don’t talk about anyone behind their backs but did say the other day to each other only that Darryn is a bully. It made me sad to hear them say that because you think easily that they just don’t notice because they live in their world and they are obviously starting to feel it. Bobby as well as being obviously gorgeous is a really lovely guy and just gets on with things. He even had the guts to apologize to Darryn and admit to things he had done to him but then Darryn still has digs at him. To be honest I’ve only watched it with my mum when she’s been watching it but you can’t help but get sucked into it when it is on!
I’m planning on going back to see my psychic ASAP again so will keep you updated with what she says but she’s always spot on with me, family and friends! My best friend Rob is in France with the tv show Merlin at the moment. I’ve been a fan of it since it started and recommend it to people who like the following:
Arthurian legends, mythology, action, medieval, beautiful people, mind blowing acting and explosive battle scenes, dragons, magic, good tv, beautiful costumes and sets, castles, forests…the list is endless!
So please check it out people. Try and start from the beginning as they are filming the fourth series at the moment. Rob is an awesome friend and even more so since giving me a tour of their set in Cardiff which consists of a big warehouse type room filled with lots of rooms and sets that they use for filming. It was amazing and it still hasn’t lost its magic with me.
So thank you for being patient with me, and thank you for tolerating this lengthy and random post. You’re awesome!
What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?
Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest and the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields.
—Philip Larkin, ‘Days’
I love music. Always have and always will. But my musical tastebuds as of late have been starved through my lack of money. And time. And I’ve just been too lethargic to sit down and actually listen to music properly! Anyways two of my favourite artists at the moment are Amy Macdonald and Foster the People. Check out their albums. Definitely worth a listen.
Noah and the Whale have just brought out their third album and they are an amazing band! Love love love them. As Q Magazine described their second album (The First Days of Spring), MAGICAL!
I have a love of the following bands:
Foo Fighters, Muse, Coldplay, Biffy Clyro, The Vaccines, The Wombats, Gorillaz, My Chemical Romance, Mark Ronson, Manic Street Preachers, Paolo Nutini, Paloma Faith, Caro Emerald, MGMT, Doves, The Kooks, Primal Scream, Radiohead, The Subways, The Academy Is, We The Kings, The Maine, Depeche Mode, The Beatles, Beach Boys, The Stone Roses, Swedish House Mafia, Daft Punk, Pink, Raygun, Rooster, Katy Perry, Alanis Morrisette, Bruno Mars, All Time Low, Paramore, Cobra Starship, Fallout Boy, Hanson, Michael Jackson, Michael Buble, Josh Groban, One Republic, The Rapture, Spiral Beach, Panic! At The Disco, Kids In Glass Houses, You Me At Six, Florence and the Machine, Aerosmith, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the list really does go on and on and on and on and on …….
Anyway I’m always looking for other bands to listen to so any suggestions people? Also any albums and/or songs in particular I need to listen to?
A couple of awesome new bands are Magic Polar Bears (formally Frame 3-13) and Next Door so check them out!
Let’s expand our musical tastes and knowledge.
I only caught the end of X Factor because I’d been at work but it’s already the best series so far. I got so sick of the drama around previous series and just didn’t watch it unless someone else I was with was. Gary Barlow, Tulisa and Kelly Rowland are brilliant additions and all great musicians in different styles making them more than qualified to judge and mentor. I loved Janet’s performance and think she’s a definite star in the making. It was incredible to see how confident she got throughout the performance and she performed it to every person in the room. Also watching the judges reactions was amazing!
That idiot who had supposedly matured but shouted his mouth off because the judges stopped him and clearly thought he was awful as did the entire country I’m sure. What a pillock. And judging by the trailer for next week’s episode it’s going to be an amazing one! Can’t wait!!
I may not be able to blog every day for the moment because my laptop charger has decided it does not want to work and my iPhone charger has disappeared. How wonderful! Rather than try and post random little tidbits whenever I get a chance I will try and blog when I have enough time to post something worthwhile rather than posting random rubbish. If I did that I fear you’d see too much of my little mind!
I’m sure we’ve all sent a text that has been misinterpreted by our smartphone (mainly the iPhone) and this site is brilliant!! It has me in stitches! Definitely worth checking out as I am currently in bed at 11am howling with laughter…literally!!! Enjoy it people.
I miss the days when I was earning more having a part time job then I do now, being at university and working. I messed up with my choices my first time at university, left, worked full time and got myself into a shed load of debt. I got ill and then had to stop working meaning I could no longer cope with the debt I had gotten myself into.
Now I am back at university and working weekends just so that I can pay my bills. It’s really awful to be working harder than ever and not have anything to show for it. What makes things harder is the scroungers who have never done a days work in their lives and the ones who emigrate here because they can cheat the benefits system having more money than the majority of the people I know who have lived and worked here their whole lives. It’s such a joke. This country should be looking after their own first before anyone else’s especially with the state we are in at the moment.
I love working where I work. It’s definitely the most fun I’ve had anywhere. The only bad thing about being there is the fact that I see so much the I want and I just can’t afford to buy it. I do often think I would have been better off getting knocked up when I was 16 and living off the benefits system like so many others do but then surely the whole point of being here is to have a purpose and contribute to the economy of our country not just for ourselves but for future generations? I don’t want to be one of those people who don’t know what it’s like to actually work for what I get. Everyday is a struggle but I graduate (hopefully) in less than a year. I know how lucky I am to not only be in education but also in work. Not only that I am keeping myself afloat as so many sink.
It wouldn’t be possible without my mother who although drives me insane and is a constant nag she does have a heart of gold. She has helped me a lot financially even though she is struggling herself. My brother has finally gotten himself a full time job but I’m sure he will still be sponging off our parents whenever he can.
I still feel lost in life and this is panicking me because of the financial unease in my life. I don’t think it would bother me as much if I wasn’t in debt as I wouldn’t have felt so rushed. There’s so much I wish I could have done but then every mistake I’ve made and success I’ve had has made me the person I am today. They are all experiences. I feel better equipped in some ways to deal with life. I know if and when I have children of my own that I will be able to advise them on things but allow them to make their own mistakes also. Mistakes can and have knocked me but in the end they make us stronger. I definitely wouldn’t push my children or make them feel like they have to do something. That pressure is not good and it’s how I’ve ended up as I am.
I’m going to keep struggling a bit longer and treat myself to a holiday in Disney World Orlando next year with one of my best friends Lisa and maybe one or two others. We shall see.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
So as I was writing about my missing posting a blog yesterday due to my laptop crashing, it did it again! But I’m determined…I will get one up tonight! Hopefully this will be it.
So I’ve just completed my 5th weekend at work and I’m loving it. Great people and I love what they sell. I think I’m doing well there. I am so exhausted and in quite a bit of pain from standing all day but I’m sure I’ll get used to it.
I’m also very excited as I’ve almost got enough points on my HMV pure card to get a new netbook! Woohoo!! The decision is pink or blue? I just need some money so I can buy some stuff to make up my points. Wish they had the iPod classic on there (preferably in black). Sucks that they don’t. Or maybe a 3DS or Skullcandy Aviator headphones! Ah well. Can’t complain as I’ll be getting it for free :P
As well as working my butt off I came home to find out my dumbass of a father had spilled coffee over one of my pugs! Not only that, I’ve only just used their flea drops on them which means I can’t bath either of them yet as it will take the solution off them and it’s too expensive to do that. So I’ve settled for brushing Cash a lot to get the worst of it off him but he will certainly be needing a bath in the next couple of days.
I’m keeping this blog short and sweet as I keep drifting off with this one (damn tiredness!) but I will do a good one soon I promise! x
