The Longest Day

June 21: Official longest day in the year, and no kidding, there were still glimmers of light at 11:35pm.

Not a whole lot to talk about really now, my rooms has been throughly tidied now since I have cleared all of my school work from two years and it went to three bags full for the rubbish. Theres a small amount of it left since mother said its better to keep some just in idea why but why not. Anyway the room is not a lot clearer and only needs a few finishing touches and to dump by sell or charity shop some items. The music by Tom Jones, Muse and James Morrison also kept me in a good mood.

I have also started playing once again Final Fantasy VIII since one I found it and two its just awesome. Starting again always gets me right into it.

Work wasn't bad although due to all cut hours I had to run top floor since the other guy claimed he couldn't be bothered and that I do it much better apparently. Nevertheless it was more interesting that doing nothing.

Short blog but they happen.

From Summer to Storm

Yesterday I had an interesting day out in the sun, it was a very nice day which in a small affect brightened my mood. First I headed up to help my mum on Ben's birthday present which was an interesting process. Then straight after I had met up with Leigh and his Dad since my phone's screen died and they had the guarantee and I was quite lucky about that actually. My phone has been sent off for repair. When walking looking at phones and stuff in general we bumped into Sean on his lunch break whom is the same as always. We also had lunch at Burger King, my first fast food in a long long time since I am generally off fast food. However at least BK have cooked burgers. Since I found out at work all hours are cut and none available my old head of entertainment said it'd be better to hold a second job and Leigh informed me there might be an opening at Blockbuster which would be helpful for my savings this summer...and the pay is higher than Woolworths ironically. We went down there and I filled out an application then we headed back to Leigh's to play some 360 for a bit before walking his dog. When we got back we also headed over to PC World since I would not believe his docking station cost £20 since I saw an identical one in Woolies catalogue for £60. Though I was wrong and it was £20, so I purchased it since it would be very useful for me and save me the need of using pc all the time.

After this I headed off home and then I bumped into Zairene on her way back from extra study at her school...a day of seeing old faces I have to say. When I got home I didn't do that much but that night a massive thunder storm hit which was quite surprising and funny watching all the people outside run around in heavy rain.

Last Chance...Didn't kick!

My final exam of my school life at St. Pauls Catholic School was today and it was my media studies which I was pretty confident about and happy to take the exam since I felt really prepared to give it a really good go. Gave a lot of time for practice exams and such making sure that I would do successfully. Well anyway I got to school at 11:30 to do some more work at school since concentration at home was lacking. I sat up in Sixth form area with Joe and Sara also preparing for media and just themselves finished their History exam. It was a good little discussion we had and made me remember some stuff I forgot in my media.

Mrs Howorth also asked us to vote for the nominations for prom awards and I found out I was one of four for Teenage Drama Queen...honestly I have no idea how but Mrs Howorth suggested I vote I did. heh

Then it was clinch time to take that final two exams and my mind was mentally prepared for MED4 since as far as I knew we were doing MED4 first, little I find I was mistaken. Both exams in general, I did far worse than I desired and far worse than I needed to get so I was not very much impressed with myself after the work I put in. The clips were hard to analyse in my opinion and my hand really hurt only after the first paper. After the exam I was very quiet and only spoke when spoke to really. My disappointment in myself took its toll and since then I have been thinking what I should do now I am questioning whether I make the Uni I desire. I was considering a college course to gain a few last extra points but my mom seems to be rather against it. In total its been a crash and burn day and kinda a downer to the start of my summer. I do hope everyone else does well though and good luck to them all.

June Showers

Today I had my final exam in ICT and the last ICT thing ever...whohoo celebrate. However the night before I was really ill and still ill during most of the day which really swayed me, the walk to school I thought I was actually gonna be sick. Anyway once I got down in the exam and concentrated on something else I soon got concentrated though it took 15 minutes before I even used my iPod. I played Final Fantasy VIII soundtrack all the way through whilst in the exam and then the usual lot afterwards. The exam went quite well...well I say that but never again because last time we said that it was not so good so for now it was so so. I got all sections completed still so its somewhere.

After the exam I got down the bottom of J-Block to find that it was actually pouring and pouring down with rain. Cla and I were just sitting in contemplating whether to make a run for it. Before long Sarah and Cecilia came running in the rain both drenched. We sat around until we gave up waiting and made a run to the nearby shelter, when we got there I realised I forgot my iPod in the exam room, so I ran it and got drenched but got the Pod back. When I got back to Sarah and Cecilia the rain slowed itself for a bit and Cla was already gone though. Anyway we left the school and walked up, today was collection day for prom money so I had to draw money out for Cecilia who is paying it all. However we had to head to my house first since I needed my card. The rain was heavy and weak on and off so it was strange but we had some good old chit chat. Unfortunatly for Sarah and Cecilia they both had flip-flops and their feet got soaked. Anyway the long way to the city was interesting and when we got there the girls got themselves some food. Sarah headed to work, I gave money to Cecilia where we all parted ways.

From there it was time to go on a suit search for the Prom and even though I was back and fourth I got one at Suits You hired for £30. I went with a Tie over the bow-tie this time though. hehe. I also bought myself a t-shirt from H&M for £8 since I myself want some newer clothes since I am getting bored and I saw a t-shirt I wanted on the revision day. I didn't buy all much else since I am still lacking money despite getting payed due to tight budget.

Work came right around the corner so headed over to work which wasn't interesting really since it was heavily dead and too hot for its own good. I am planning to purchase a fan tomorrow provided its not raining for the walk home so that I can cool down my room which is like being at work in the summer.

Viva las Vegas!

On this cloudy morning I had my MED 1 Media Exam which took a long time to get into the exam room. Mr. Bacon never read any of the year 13's sitting MED 1 and so we had to wait till the very end before even starting the exam. By 9:20am we finally got in and settled down. One of the Asker's (Rebecca) missed her name since she was sitting MED 2 but wasn't sure where to go. It was all a state of confusion really.

Anyway the exam clip was of a show back in 2004 called Blackpool which started some interesting names such as David Tennant and some names I can't recall either. Nevertheless none of the plot was shown but I was under the impression it was meant to link to Las Vegas. It was like a musical since all the characters shown were singing Viva las Vegas by Elvis. That song then rang through my head the whole exam. Thank god for Liz though since she gave me that Key Concepts book since I remembered stuff that I forgot on my read-up in the morning and made planning really easy. The exam itself went really well and I was pretty proud fitting all of MIGRAIN on in detail with what how and why to it all...pretty much.

The exam finished at 10:35 and we were out pretty fast, when asking Liz, Lizi and Hannah we all agreed it was rather easy...much better than a sky sports rugby advert. For part of the way I was talking to Sara about the exams and other exams we are taking. She has to do two History exams on top of the two media exams on the same day. Feel quite sorry for her.

The rest of the day was a bit of a laze and work later on was quite boring and unusually boring for a thursday.

Well today being monday but can't be bothered to change settings, eight of us went to see Pirates of Carribean: At Worlds End. Deejay, Sarah, Liz, Pete, Tom, Cecelia, Anita and I all met around Cineworld at 6:30/7pm where we chatted for a while until it was time for the film. The cinema was pretty packed and sat infront of the barrier this time which was a rare thing. The film was pretty good, kinda dragged but the Jack Sparrow humour and epic battle at the end made up for it. There was a small clip which I had against me if it was a waste of time...which it kinda was. Though we had fun playing a game find your name in credits which I used to do when I was six. Tom won since Tom and Ryan are very popular names.

Other than that apart from the change in blog layout not much has happened.

Beating the Hangover

This is my first blog in 35 days which really isn't good. In that time involved my birthday, last day of school, Sarah's house party and many other activities which were just awesome...I just couldn't be bothered to blog so lazy on my part. To save the longest blog entry ever I will just start again from now.

Also thanks for some great times for past events everyone!

Now then onto the blog:

Yesterday was what I think a pretty hectic day, first of all I had a lack of sleep since I had trouble sleeping so at most I had only about five hours of sleep. Then the day was pretty much normal with work and such which was really dead upstairs due to Race for Life apprently so work went fine and Karl the store manager wasn't in due to holiday so he won't need to bother me with random jobs...which honestly I prefer if its off the shop floor. hehe. Also I am called Marshall by a lot of people now at Woolworths, confuses the hell out of those who don't know my surname such as those on other departments whom I don't really know myself.

Anyway after work I chilled at home and prepared for a night out. Since it was my friend Tom Meakins birthday, he organised a work mass gathering for his birthday and this time people who don't usually come, came!

Off the top of me head the following came along:


Not a huge list but some people prioritise work for next day but enough for a good time since I am closer to quite a few of the ones in the group.

Well I left home at around 10ish and got up for about 10:20 where I queued to get into Lloyds, the bouncer was odd since he thought I was drunk. My response - "I literally just came from home?" Anyway I get in to find they are still in the queue so I waited it out for five minutes, some of them had already been out at Yates since they arrived at 9 but I didn't want to get drunk too early. Once all were in we got some drinks, I got five shots of sambucca for the members who wanted it and they were; Tom, Dave, Adrian, Steph and I. Dave has Daniel buy him another shot and then doubled the original shot and waited for a light to light the dirnk. The lighting failed miserably so he took the shot and put the lighter in his mouth and lit it. Dave said it doesn't burn this way? I was unconvinced. We also hit the games machine doing the quiz on there which is interesting when drunk. We won and the shares were split which was nice, then it was time for more drink. After a while we got bored of Lloyds and headed outside which was an interesting walk since Tom ran a road nearly ran over with Kelly herself nearly doing the same. Crazy stuff for a short walk. hehe

We all headed off the Mood which is where the fun of the night really began since the small dramas between some started and we all got throughly drunk. The cameras all came out at this point as well. The night progressed as things do in mood such as dancing and so on. I also bumped into an old friend from my first school called Mark Dent which was a nice suprise its been ages since I seen that legend of a guy.

Then around 3am some people needed to go home. The first to leave were Adrian, Charlotte and Steph and then Tom and Gary headed in another cab down to Pink Punters, but a few of us decided Tom drank too much and was trying to persuade him to go home. Due to reasons we were unconvinced. For a while it was just Kelly, Beccy, Dave, Daniel and me who sat on the curb for taxi though we never found a correct one. We dirverted it to Blechely to make sure Tom got home and on the way dropped Beccy and Kelly home. Then until it £17 fare (black cab) we walked rest. The three remaining went through Blechely High Street which is strange a 3:30am. We got some weird video of us acting...well drunk. Tom did get home though and then he and his mom picked us up to take us home. I got back a 4am where sky was getting bright but never actually went asleep til 5.

I woke up at 6:50 since I could not sleep in the heat of my room even with the window wide open. I also intended to do some car-booting so early morning was a neccessay thing, though no one got up till about 10 in the end anyway. Strangely I had no hangover and nor was I tired. The weather today is beautiful and hope the weather keeps. Now its time wasting til 7 when I see Pirates of Carribean.

First Card

Well it seems the sun is back...then its gone and now its back. It is in and out of the clouds however there is still nice weather about. Despite the tight deadlines set by ICT and essays from Psychology my mood is still pretty bright. With all that its just over four weeks left of school..EVER which honestly feels a bit scary.

Anyway the day was alright, I was late getting to school, mainly because I was doin my Psychology work late and on the morning. hehe I got in at 9:08 and went straight to class. Craig was ill today so I sat this one alone. I sat my frees with Pete and Mark which was funny since Pete found the top of his jokes...though not to be taken literally. Media was nicely laid back as well watching a spoof reality like Police show called... however I didn't like it that much since it irritated me a little. Also due to the Art exam the class was very empty and there were only nine of us in class.

I had to leave at lunch this time to pick up Simon's (my mum's boyfriend) birthday present since its his birthday today. I got him Saw III. I walked up with Sarah and Cecelia where we have our usual chats about stuff and some upcoming events.

When I got home I had some post however it was my first birthday card, a week early however still the wonderful birthday was from Coventry University. Yup obviously the highlight of my day. LOL

Anyway I got Leavers Mass tonight and then after its up to nexus however I very little money now unfortunately, I am gonna have to leave Thursday night out this time as well. >_>

Dazed and Confused

This is by far one of the weirdest weekends I have had in ages, well in a sense. Also sorry for no recent updates I been a little busy with ICT coursework which always seems far from complete. Well I gotta repeat it was one hectic weekend at work and I say Woolworths heat does not make it any easier. hehe

Anyway Saturday was quite busy and I was sorting a lot of stock out and such. However then there was at one point a radio call for me from the store manager to go to his office. Then I go in sit down then he says to me that £20 went missing apparently about a week ago on a till that I used. I could not recall any mistake or anything but then he went and accused me for stealing it from the till based on that as evidence and so he said he inform the police if it happens again. I wouldn't have the guts in actual truth to steal from the till plus its only £20 which would be rather cheap. >_> After that I made sure I just keep off the tills for a while unless its necessary so I don't make a mistake like that...if in fact it had anything to do with me at all. Also to top it all off that day I found out that someone already knew something which I apparently had a secret and only a few people knew. I was very tired after that day of work.

Sunday was no different from business even if I never was on till. I was working on the new promotions on the ends of aisles. Then again it was more enjoyable because I was chatting a lot of the time with quite a few people however the day did drag on. However going home was no fun since I only had more courseworks and stuff to do. On top of that I fell ill that night.

Due to illness I was unable to attend school so I just rested up and tried to get more work done though I didn't get much done since I felt like crap. I guess its because of my stress thats building up because I am revising Psychology as well since the exam I take is before our study leave even. Theres just so much to look at and now I am waking at times like 4am and stuff since my body clock is gone crazy

I just hope these next five weeks can be harmless, I get the feeling a lot is going to happen.

"Thats Numberwang"

A good start to the week I have to say, I seem a lot brighter than when I did two weeks ago which is proberly due to the fact I am not so worried about coursework as I once was which is a relief. Anyway my day started at 10am when I awoke, no-one was in since Mum was working and Ben was at school. It was really hot though so I got myself a good cold glass of water to wake up to. I was in a Ben Folds Five mood today so on goes my PC and on goes Army. The weather was really nice as well so I had my windows wide open.

Before long I got a little bored since I was in a house like a week long so I thought a walk is in order so about 1pm I went up to the city in the heat which was hotter than my house. Still the breeze was nice and since theres no noisy kids around it was very quiet Fishermead. At the city I went straight to the bank to cash in a cheque of a whopping £2.38. The person who used the machine left their bank card in the machine on the main menu, still after I did my transaction I returned it a staff member. I then headed to Waterstone's and bought Rurouni Kenshin manga and they were on 3 for 2 offer which was nice as well. I also needed to buy a few birthday cards while in that location. I went to HMV to check out albums but bought Mitchell and Webb Live for only £7 as well. Then I was really hot so the best solution was a Starbucks Camamel Frappachino and boy was it awesome. I haven't had one since last summer and it really cooled me down. I then went home not long after since I'd be a loner if I just sat at the city..alone. LOL

When I got home I washed up and then watched Mitchell and Webb which was really funny and kept up my positive attitude. Its a shame I just know the upcoming studies and exams are gonna bring down my mood but thats what happens.

Stranded in the Heat

I guess its time to make an account of my most useless moment ever! Well its a blazing Easter Sunday afternoon with wonderful weather so I was in a good mood despite my family being away and on my own due to work. Anyhow I was due to visit my Dad and some family who came from up north down to visit and I dunno why but I seemed in a rush to get out and got half way there then realised I left the keys at home. So I shut myself out my house and felt so damn stupid for it. After trying to break in my house and failing I went over my Dad's where I could stay the night though I felt guilty imposing on them. I still feel really stupid for it but I guess it happens anyway Mum came home early on the Monday so I could get to work on time and boy was I thankful to her. However I felt quite down around then and then I was told I had to look after my brother all week during the day while Mum was working in London on a conference which means I missed a few events which I really wanted to go to but I guess you can't make them all.

So my week panned out like that until Friday when I popped round Leigh's house for a while where I lent him my phone(s) since he broke his Dad's phone and they needed a spare which I have two spares. lol Also we played some Fifa 2007 against computer and against each other. It was quite fun. Very nice weather we have been blessed by as well, though Woolworths turns into an oven in this weather.

The Night of the Woolies Massive

Well this untypical Thursday was pretty much a recovery day from the previous day. I had to work today and straight after was the big night out for those that work at Woolies which has been planned for a while by the man Greg and Steph who took an idea where we should have night out around this time with a convo with me into action. Well first after work I had to rush home whom I saw Charlene on my way home and when I got home I got my kit together like money and stuff. I also cracked open the Absinthe since drinking in Oce is expensive. This took a very big affect on my later on. About three shots of that was enough for the meantime and so I headed up to the city and beat queue and never got ID this time as well (a first for Oce and me). Everyone saw me in the window so I didn't need to search for them. Quite a lot were already there and I saw some faces whom I haven't seen since Christmas either. We sat downstairs for a while where waiting for everyone together then after a while we headed up to the Disco. About now that Absinthe really kicked in along with my double Vodka and j20 which it felt a bit early as well for drunkenness. We took over the cornet in the Disco room and chilled there for the night, heading onto the dance floor for a while as well. People left at points to go elsewhere and some had to go home for work the next day. At about 2:30 I got really tired and also decided to leave because I was in no state to drink nor party anymore. I think I walked back through a kinda quiet Fishermead. I did hear hear loud voices in a distance and possibly something was happening though I just wanted to go home and avoid fights and troubles.

I quite enjoyed myself actually though I may have told a few people things that I don't think I was gonna reveal and upsetting a few people by taking some drinks when they weren't mine. For this I am really sorry if I pissed anyone off while its a day old I had a little too much to be honest and I also was a bit down about another matter. The night was still amazing though we had a great time and everyone was enjoying themselves on the whole. I also compiled a list of people I am aware who were there, though there was a few people I never met before so they might not appear because proberly didn't see you.

Lost in Track / A Day with the Best

Right I realised that its been too long since I have updated this blog and I really should get it updated since I have had a very productive week. Anyway I'll sum it up short:

Easter Holiday Day 1: Nothing in Particular
Easter Holiday Day 2: Went into school to do my ICT...really uncool.
Easter Holiday Day 3:

Well today was my first proper day off from all the coursework I have had my head on. It was also one hell of an amazing day and I doubt I will get it all down since its a lot to write. First of all at about 2pm we left the house in search of Sarah's house which took about 15 to 20 minutes since Mum got lost in Walnut Tree was quite funny though. Then when we got there Deejay, Liz and Cecilia were already there watching Theres Something About Mary, a well good film. It seemed a bit quiet when I got there though however that changed fast later on. Pete who was meant to bring something couldn't get it so that was a shame though when he got to Sarah's we went to the shops to get some alcohol for LJ's party...which yes I was invited to.

Pete told us about this new thing he heard...munging and it makes you feel sick so I won't explain it either. Still it was quite a funny topic. We came across some giant snails and Pete was disappointed they wasn't real. On the way back we apparently took a short-cut to Sarah's though it felt the same distance however it was fine since we were all enjoying ourselves in talk anyway. When we got back we started drinking earlier instead and watched Harold and Kumar get the Munchies which was really funny. Sarah also showed her Secret Stash which basically had a LOT of wine and Pasta...really all the essentials. We also had a photo fest with Deejay's hat. Before long it was already time to go to LJ's party so we had a taxi booked and a mini-bus size one as well to fit us all. The taxi split into the girls and the guys where Deejay, Pete and I had some more photo snaps at the back. When we got there I don't think they could hear us knocking and ringing since we were waiting until Mark answered the door where we recited "HAPPY HALLOWEEN"...he was like WTF?! The party was how house parties usually are we dropped the drinks and we chatted and Tom jumped in from surprise, Leigh joined a bit late but made it.

I am more on the Vodka scene lately and seem to be going off Beer, I didn't touch my beers and ended up getting rid of them later. Anyway we had Pass the Parcel and I won which was quite cool. It seemed drinks were beginning to run low so Deejay, Liz, Leigh and I went to the shop where only Deejay bought drink in the end though Liz bought some Cigarettes which got us started. Tom mixed his new Smirnoff Ice with his absinthe to give it a new zing so it went a cloudy green, still tasted good. There was a second trip to the shop involving Tom, Sarah, Leigh, Pete and I. When we got back we were hanging outside having some nice talks and smoking and Sophie joined us outside who was shocked to find I smoke on occasion too. Though I forgot about pulling when it got lit up since my mind was in a daze over something where I got ripped. I guess I deserved it that time. However it came to the time where a group of us were kicked out the house for going out a few times which made LJ angry...yet again £200 and ruined house party were in the same sentence though I wasn't that surprised either. Leigh got really angry and wanted to taunt her though we prevented him. The members booted were: Deejay, Sarah, Pete, Liz, Leigh, Tom and myself which was half of the party.

Nevertheless we all walked from Shenley to Oldbrook to the City Xscape where we dropped my coat (in the bag) and Pete's bag at his house. Well the walk was very interesting and fun because we had Pete lunge into a light post on an apparent dare where Deejay told Pete to do so when actually he said "Stop!". hehe We walked from roads, moving diverted traffic signs (on an underpass?), putting some sandbag on my head, great talks and a great laugh. We managed to run out of the cigarettes as well where Liz got a bit stressed at. After about an hour and a half maybe longer (I recall we left LJ's at 10:30 til Midnightish) we got to Xscape where we were gonna go into either Revs or Oceana (which was closed) but Revs but we didn't risk it since Liz wasn't at the 18 age yet. Tom left us here as well to go home. From here we ended up talking to some people and one girls had a major bargain of an outfit on. Then we went to Nexus at the Point because KKBB was on which is an Indie night. We had more drinks here and Liz got in even though she was IDed and he asked her her age and hes was the sober one. LOL Anyway we danced, drank, saw Emily Issac up here as well. We had a great time over here as well and got some great pictures of the night as well including a glowing bud...yep you read that right.

Personal Photographer

What a day it was, it was a pretty productive day, well on the most part and today I also became Deejay's personal photographer with his camera today and it had been a day of photos from the start before I was even in school til the end of Starbucks. Naturally uploaded on his Flickr. Anyway on with the blog, the morning was a very tired morning since I was late and I had a late night last night and had one bad photo taken of me almost immediately. hehe Aside from that the rest of the day was pretty good, got some ICT done and amazed a year 12 and Izza with last years Media coursework; as made by Deejay and me. Then it was ICT which is as it always is, a laugh and got some work done this time though. I sat in at lunch and had some funny conversations with the group at lunch as always and I had a lunch this time though the bread on my sandwich wasn't very nice. Miss Sanford had a go at the annoying year 10's and kicked them out as well FOR THE WIN!

After lunch I no longer have psychology and forgot my money for later so went home to get it. My timetable still isn't sorted out though, typical Mrs Yates. On my way home at the four bridges a big fly right into my eye I had to sort it out based on guess and it actually hurt so much so I rushed home and washed my eye out. I was gonna head back to school straight away but got drawn onto my PSP playing Bleach Heat the Soul 3. About 2:30 I headed back to join everyone who was goin to the city for a good Starbucks which involved:

  • Deejay
  • Sarah
  • Liz
  • Tom
  • Cecilia
We had some good talks and quite a lot of fun and the photos still kept coming. I swear there must have been 50 minimum photos today from Deejay's camera. Then since it was a nice day we went to the fountain area and chilled out there until it was time for Deejay's and Sarah's training. This time for a change I was the one being generous by getting Deejay a cake which he didn't like the dark chocolate in it...agreed and Tom his Hot Chocolate.

Once we all split our separate ways I got home and still no-one home no more so I didn't do much though I was really quite tired from something and I leaned back on my chair and the whole thing fell back and now my back really hurts, hopefully nothing to worry about. I also got some pictures of the sunsetting with my camera on my Flickr now which were really nice.

I should really go eat something now hehe. Now I am up to date finally.

Another birthday in busy?

Still on my day behind posts; well basically on Saturday I had work during the day which was how it usually is..generally however for once it was really busy which is a first (comparable to christmas busy). Anyway after that I went home and chilled out for a while though I was invited out by a few friends from work since he was celebrating his birthday which sounded good and I needed a few drinks to relieve my recent stress and stuff so about 10ish I went out to meet them which originally was gonna be Lloyds but the queue was pretty damn big. LOL so which split from that joint and went to Yates instead, where I had a few beers and bought a shot for everyone (and well calculated since this time there was about eight of us and I randomly guessed eight so that was lucky. I tried my luck at the gambling machine after seeing Gary do well but I failed, lol ah well.

After it was time to hit Mood though since I had trainers on that posed a problem since apparently on Saturday's trainers can't go in Mood (when actually by that time it was actually Sunday). Well I said bye to everyone after since they were half in and I walked home and found its suprisingly safer to walk fishermead at 1:30am than it is 5:30pm...WTF?! LOL

Anyway a quick a list of who was out:

  • Adrian (Birthday Boy...22 already?!)
  • Charlotte
  • Steph
  • Nat
  • Hayley
  • Gary
  • Ricky
Still all in all it was a quite a good night. Clocks went forward though and so we had less sleep than I wanted especially since there was work the next day.

New Class

Well on Friday I went in to go to my new class since I am only doing an AS in psychology now. My overall opinion is it isn't bad and Craig is in the class as well so someone knows me. The only thing that I find drawback is the size, I forgot what having a full class was like and this class was bigger than my original one when we were in year 12. Still some of the stuff brought up I knew of which was good and I may not fail it this time round. OMFG

The other day Sarah let me use her folders from AS which was really nice of her and so I haven't got to dig up my old work...wherever that lies. Also I have been paid so I have money to start driving again, my aim is to drive for the summer which should be fine if I work hard at it as well. Though there was less than I though however my overtime had not been added on yet so next month will be nice (especially since its before my birthday).

My Bleach Heat The Soul 3 finally came through the post as well which is for my PSP and OH DAIM is it an awesome game!!! I am actually quite addicted to it and its not so japanese and my Naruto game so I can understand the game a lot easier. The end of the week really picked up which is nice and now I got work...well at least that'll show at the end of April. hehe

Only a month left before Heroes!

Calm Relief

I dunno what happened today but I felt a lot better after today, nothing special really happened I guess I accepted my a-level thing. Well anyway the day was quite nice, but damn cold. I think recently I been quite stressed and tense and now I have calmed down a bit. I am really into listening to the calm music of Final Fantasy now as well. After school I went round my Dad's house today and played Madden with my little bro and I was actually losing most of the game until the end with an awesome comeback 45 - 38. Two TDs down at the two-minute bro threw on the bad loser phase after. hehe

I know quite the long entry today though I guess that's all I have to report.

On a side note there have been a lot of things happening within my friends lately like falling outs, personal issues and stuff and I feel like I am not there for them enough even if I try. Though I don't wanna force it out of them because I don't wanna be disliked for persistently asking or sticking my nose in, I am worried though that something is really wrong. Well I can only try my best at the end.

Downer of a week, whose suprised!

Well it seems that its been a while since I updated my blog or even used much of the net. Last week was quite good went to starbucks with the guys and actually found myself in the city everyday last week for some reason. Well I kinda like the week until Thursday, it was results day surprisingly.

Well my results wasn't exactly what I wanted and I was pretty much disappointed all round.

  • ICT:
    • U - 35UMS - This was a surprising result since I really worked hard on this...though the class fell down on this one so it might be our teachers problem
  • Psychology
    • PYA2 (re-sit) U - 28UMS
    • PYA4 (A2) E - 40UMS
      • Concerning this subject, Miss Naylor is very keen that I no longer continue my A2 and only do AS again. Not that I want to its just it seems my choice went when I flunked.
  • Media
    • MED2 (resit) - D - 52UMS
      • Pretty much the best of them all so far however my media is my strong point since I have quite a high grade in this subject in total.
Yeah well I walked home that day a bit shameful though I guess its my fault at the end of the day. However Deejay, Sarah, Tom and everyone cheered my up so the rest of the day. The thing that bums me out is that A2 discontinuation, I feel like all my efforts in A2 were wasted into nothing. Well the decision isn't final though Miss Naylor is sure that its too much pressure to resit AS and do the A2 exams.

The weekend was nothing special, I just worked and then did some coursework...the reality made me work at least.

Thats pretty much it so far I guess, I know this is a depressing update but they are there sometimes.

This Ordinary Day

I seem to be a day behind on all my posts so basically this post it what happened on the 13th rather than the 14th. Ah well I'll fix that at some point. Anyway today was nothing out of the ordinary it seems. Though Miss Naylor even though was in yesterday had to go home at lunch because she couldn't move her neck as she still has a state of whiplash; I can understand her shock though I get the feeling my class has fell behind a bit even if we are doing the work. Well we had group work to do anyway though we had our heart to heart class discussion again about a few things. When Mark found out we had no teacher he was gone in like the fasted speed I have seen him in...XD

Home wasn't that interesting either today because everyone was out since my bro had a guitar lesson and stuff. I ended up watching Heroes from episode 1 again out of boredom however Heroes is never a boring thing. I cannot wait til its back in April.

KO'd/Sunday Mayham

I know I posted this kinda late but I was a little busy, anyway right onto the blog. On saturday I went to Covenrtry University to check it out and looks at my possible choice. I found it really good the day in general, the uni looked pretty cool and my little bro enjoyed it because he kept taking any freebess on every table he could find. The parents and applicants were split up into two and then split again based on the course in the Computer and Engineering section. Since mine was all multimedia and creative computing it was really interesting. I also got a good look at the accomodation there. Then we went to the church there which was really amazing the look of it and outside there were marial arts demonstructions like Kickboxing, Kung Fu and Sword Mastery which was all really good as well. Then we went to the transport museum for my brothers sake since he was getting quite bored which was quite intersting though at this point my camera ran out of battery unfortunatly since I was gonna take it to the following party for Deejay's sake.

After all the we headed home and I got back about 4:45 then I got ready to go over to Leigh's house to chill and stuff. He has just got Tiger Woods 2007 and hes addicted, still I was so much better than him since I played it before. LOL

We left to pick up Kester and get his drinks and such around 7:10 and arrived at Deejays at somepoint after 7:30. The party itself was really good and everyone had a great time. The actual details of the party are on Night and Day's blog on my links since I'd be copying it otherwise. Though I did have my moment when I had a go at someone and then got sad about something else. After that Deejay cheered me up and everyone gave me hug and made me feel better. Thanks guys I love you thanks for being there for me.

There was a point where we got really drunk and ended up moshing to Fall Out Boy and then Deejay literally KO'd me accidently but I didn't realise til I heard someone shout "Give him some space, you fucking knocked him out!" from Katy. Deejay helped me up and everything.

A lot happend that day but it was still really good!

>Sunday Mayham

Work was a bit crazy today since there was nobody in except a few people and it got really quite busy at moments, even as I was leaving it got busy and only one person was left serving since two of us finished both at 3 though I stayed a few minutes longer. That was generally the day when I got home I didn't actually do much at all.

Happy 18th Birthday Deejay

As the title says it was Deejay's birthday and it was a good one as well. I was running a bit late and got in when the bell went walk in form and there is one happy Deejay with a sack of gifts. I gave him my gift as well which was Hand Of Death to complete or near complete his JC (Jackie Chan) collection which was directed by John Woo which is awesome because Pete got him a John Woo collection. Anyway also when trying to finish my essay I was called up with Phil to the study area to see Mrs Gray where Cla and a few others also gathered and we were what I first called it a secret mission as my and Phil were trying to lead people on. Really an assistant head of another school was finding out and comparing his school to ours as sixth formers. It was pretty good actually the talk we had (which took place in period 4) though as a result I never got Miss Naylor's essay in...OH WELL! hehehe

Anyway I stayed in lunch to sit with everyone for a while longer and stick with Deejay on his birthday who looked quite smart today with his tie on. Sarah also put up posters of him of his progression of his hair style in the past.

After school I didn't do much til I had work which as usual wasn't all that interesting at the moment. However the main shutter (market side) was closed. I'll be honest I had a small smile of joy for the tiny moment of thinking it closed. hehe Nah its really jammed not good really since customers had to enter through the fire exit also my entrance to staff area. One of my managers made a good joke just before work about how good it would be to see a shoplifter smack straight into it it as they were running. Cruel but funny as hell.

Day of Disfunction

The lessons from today were so out of place it changed a typical Thursday. First of all ICT our teacher wasn't in however Mr. Garwood who was in the room at the time made us stay in. Its okay I got the rest of my media essay done. WOOT one down. Then RE a mix as well because first there was a CAFOD speaker and Deejay collected the donations in his hat, what a tool! Then we went back to our classes and we watched the beginning of The Sixth Day which was about Arnie getting cloned. Then went to the library to research cloning. Then media was room changed to the PE lab again. Then I sat in at lunch for a while and talked with everybody and left around 2 to go home. I get home and watch my dosage of anime like Bleach and Kiba and had some lunch...which has seemed to be my dinner since I haven't eaten since. Anyway after I started one of my psychology essays for tomorrow and then I had to leave for work. That was quite interesting and a little busy today and some odd customers came in today I must say. That was pretty much it and I should really get re-started on my essay though I can't be bothered.

Working Wednesday/Cross the Line...What line? Its gone!

I have to say I have never done so much work on such an empty day of work. Basically today I spent all day working on my ICT coursework to submit today. I worked on it for the first four periods and then even stayed after lunch to do it on the last two periods. I build a headache through it all. Lunch was quite amusing because we got a preview of Gavin at Deejay's party for Saturday and then also I teased him when his girlfriend called how he was all hyper then calm the next. He said "Jo can you give me a minute" to which I got up and he chased me round the cafe. Then carried on his phone call after. Also he came with make with Chips, cheese and sauce and nothing from the cafe. The last two periods was spent with Lizi and Cecelia who read Deejay's long blog and talked about Amsterdam. It was a nice chilled afternoon.

Talkitive Tuesday

Tuesday is usually a busy day since its a full day but this time it wasn't bad. First period I talked to my ICT teacher about my coursework and got that sorted out. Then pretty much chilled in form til the assembly. Second period was quite funny in general studies where it was group presentation and Gavin, Pete and me just prepared with minimal effort and drew Robocop since it was based on AI. It was pretty funny. ICT was as it always though Cla was missing today. Media studies with Miss Sanford was okay and our teacher wasn't that late this time. OMFG. Lunch was a good laugh from tickling antics to eating of paper. Gavin has now become famous for getting crappy drinks in the cafe. Then to top it all off he came back with really bad looking pizza and only threw it away in the end. Psychology was off-course as well because Miss Naylor is still in shock from the car crash and at first we thought the year 12 attacked our card from yesterday since it was gone! What actually happened was Mr Winter took it to her house but we re-made one a lot better this time. We really impressed Mrs Howorth though because of all the cover classes we got organised are ready to work and started already before she entered. Since there was a presentation on the board we were this time taught by Katy, whom really enjoyed it as well. Once that was done we had a typical class talk and then all still managed to answer our 5 marks questions we had to do.

Then I walked up city with Sarah, Tom, Ceceila and Anita. In the end I forgot why I actually needed to go up and just went to my Dad's house. I ended up playing Titan Quest which is an RPG and actually pretty damn good. I seemed quite hyper and in a very good mood today, not sure why though but its not a bad thing.

Good old Mondays/ One Month for Blog

Start of the week to start fresh and this time I'm not ill this week. hehe Today was like my normal Monday though everyone was back from Amsterdam now and Deejay showed me his photos and everyone told me their stories. A lot of it sounded really good and funny, which is good they had a good time. Had frees in the morning and chilled out with Cla and later joined by Chris Grimes. Then ICT in its same old content however Stephen found a site where we can play videos in school for the while. Not bad and tv-links uses it quite often as well which is good. Had psychology at the end of the day as well and Miss Naylor wasn't in because she had a car crash on Friday which sounds bad. Miss Crane said she wasn't gonna sit in the class but she agreed to the idea that we could make a group card (a way to pass time) for Miss Naylor. Though I guess we can say there was no real work done since the cover work was quite easy and in the end we ended up telling our stories and stuff all digging into each others personal life. It was quite nice and funny at times as well. Then second half of the lesson we watch A Beautiful Mind since it was part of our work which was quite good actually. Although I ended up looking through some woman's mag with Sophie and Katy. Quite a positive day all in all. Got home and started work on some coursework, its hitting me finally to seriously work for my A-Level. A little late but better than later.

Also it seems today it has been a whole month that I have had this blog, I wouldn't say the most dedicated by still not bad for me. Hopefully there will be many more posts to come.

The Typical Sunday

Today wasn't a bad day, weather was miserable though. Got up this morning quite early and went to church which I haven't done in quite a while and met up with a few people whom I haven't seen in a while and told about uni plans and such. Gotta say it was a very depressing sermon though; decapitation and torture was the main focus. Anyway after on the way home, I had a text from Aaron who had spare Fratellis tickets for Brixton and unfortunately I don't have enough money for that and Coventry next week so I had to pass which was a shame but nice offer though. Then around 2 we had dinner which was quite nice actually; Turkey, Rice and veg but the rice and some chicken flavour added to it or something. I also had some ice cream for dessert and thats my Sunday. Afterwards I have pretty much been working on my media coursework, I really need to sort it out badly.

The Day Off

Today was a very long and empty day. Since I had no work today since I had booked time off for other reasons originally I ended up sitting it at home. Though ironically even though it was my day-off I still went into work since I had to sort out my problem for next Saturday. Next Saturday is my day trip to Coventry University to explore the campus and such and I had attempted to book off that weekend for holiday as well however since too many people have it book I was unable to take it. In the end they said that it'll have to be unpaid holiday which isn't the worst, better than an ultimatum or something. hehe After that was all sorted out I went to Waterstones to check the latest manga and ended up getting some School Rumble manga...its really good and since I loved the show I want the manga as well - while in there I bumped into Phil who was working.

Then I headed home and ate dinner and stuff. Then time passed by after all the reading, and I had another phone call from the Amsterdam people. Sounds like they are having a great time which is good. The call was all in persuasion of me having a house party but remembering last time and that was quite the sober party. Also my house is not a good location for a party - too messy. Anyway they said a few of them are stoned but not sure who was and wasn't. hehe

End of the Short Week

Well today was friday already and the end of the week (which was a very short week of school for me due to illness and/or death conspiracy hehe). Today wasn't bad actually psychology with Miss Crane and we got in small groups to write an essay the failed. My group was only a four where the others were five and my members were: Aaron, Jon and Suella (can't spell her name sorry). Since both Aaron and Jon are literate perfectionists it took 10 minutes to finish a five mark question, though it was quite funny. Still managed to pull 8 marks...out of 30...yeah. Then after that I had break which was quite hyped with excited people for amsterdam and stuff then I had free periods which I spent with Maye and the computers. I now have now completed 2 out of the 4 people whos gifts I need to buy for this month. However my money isn't looking all that good which is a little worrying... Then it was lunch which I decided to stay in school for this time since its easier to buy food than prepare at home, though I wish I did because I was 10p short of a meal and a drink so I had a drink and the worst pizza ever. Also there was hardly anyone in the cafe today. There was only Liz, Livia, Lorna, Laura and Mary and then Pete followed shortly by Gavin and Mark came in who had these bacon rolls that what Matt described eariler. Though it was roudy for the younger years and they had a like a food fight on the table behind and one of the chips hit Gavin, which is when all the kids disappeared very fast. It was such a mess though.

After lunch I headed home and didn't do anything I can say productive since I already watched Naruto in the morning. I did start watching Whose Line Is It Anyway again which I haven't actually watched in soo long. Makes me laugh everytime, originally a UK sitcom but now airs in the US since its a lot more popular there.

I also had a phone call around 1:30 from the people in amsterdam and it was funny but hard to understand some of it since theres was shouting a screaming in some cases. hehe Sounds like they are having a good time though apprently they went to sleep shortly after. They sounded very hyper to me.

The Very Un-Busy Week

There has been a lack of updates this week on blog due to the fact I was ill and had nothing really much to report. I was off school from Monday to Wednesday and finally came back to school on Thursday to find out that there was a conspiracy I was dead!!! Yeah guys the afterlife was quite boring so I came back. hehe To top of my wonderful week of illness (yeah right) I received a rather ridiculous email as well which is the last thing I wanna wake up to honestly but it happens.

School was pretty good today and it was nice to be back. First lesson was ICT which was the same as always teacher arrives 20 minutes later and we just do our work anyway. Deejay showed me some of Gray's latest work on:

One of my favourites was Lemon Man ep. 1

Then break time which was quite funny and everyone was loud and excited and Pete had his t-shirt with a big hand on the back which everyone kept slapping. hehe Then the next lesson was RE which was looking to be boring however our teacher had to go to a meeting so therefore we had quite a crazy lesson; first we went upstairs due to room change, yes we got the work done - credit to Deejay for writing it all out, then Deejay brought the camera and took photos to prepare for future GIFS. Also there was some good discussion between Jen, Rosie and me.

Then another room change was media where we went to the PE lab. I had my coursework handed back and OH MAN I am gonna have a lot of work to do. Though I got a article on Tarantino which was actually really interesting and I can now link Battle Royale in my essay...just awesome! The lesson was based on Cop shows and there is talk of both media classes going to see Hot Fuzz, which will be really awesome if that does happen.

After that it was time to head home where I didn't get much done I guess and prepared for work. Work was dead the moment I arrived so obviously lots of fun, though there some real picky customers.

One of Those Weekends

This is what I would call just "one of those weekends". Work on Saturday was a bit hectic and there was a lot of new stock to go out which left half of my floor a complete mess and I was in a position where two people in power gave me two opposite jobs...really it is so irritating. Well I got in trouble and saw the angry face of my manager. It was actually very tiring with all that carrying and stuff. Anyway after work I went down Watherspoons for a few pints with my friend and met some new friends who once used to be in the year above. I ended up finding out all the ins and outs of Woolworths and about past managers, past relationships and...something rather trivial...anyway the night was quite good in the end.

Sunday was a nothing day really and got nothing accomplished. Though next week I have some time off of work so not too bad.

Furthermore I never gave a synopses on Naruto this week since I think in both anime and manga it was an amazing week in the story of Naruto. The anime was the bell training with Naruto, Sakura and Kakashi and compared to the manga version the anime version is so much better and I really enjoyed the episode. The manga version was a lot shorter but it should have the same outcome which is fine. Also the music was really good, the song (which I am gonna call the "Akatsuki Theme" until I know the real name works really well. Also I won't spill spoiler obviously the manga made me go...AHHHH OMFG!!!, so yeah really good week for Naruto.

Payday/ The Choice

Well today is payday and I received just under £200 due to the small month so I only really got 2 weeks worth of pay. Still this money is gonna be looked after this time because I plan to be able to pan it out over a whole month's worth and still save some for uni and/or driving lessons. School was same old same old today for a Friday; had psychology which wasn't bad because Miss Crane put some 'tranquil' music on and Katy kept complaining about it. In the end she borrowed my iPod which kept her occupied in the end. Then I had Free periods and I sat with Maye, Stephen, Chris and Nat which was pretty cool. Then I headed up the city for some reason with Stephen who needed a knee support and I bought an album and some blank DVDs. Then I headed home and watched Naruto and got ready to go to work. Work was dead as usual and I didn't do much but at one point there was a flow of customers to keep me going. Entertainment played both Killers albums today which made things good and then a customer as one of my favourite songs came on said "God the music is terrible isn't it?", I was like "but this is one of my favourite bands". Getting home was different since I had to walk because my Mum and brother went down to stevenage to see Simon. Yep empty house...lolz

Uni has been on my mind as of late and I feel less bothered about Hartfordshire, not sure why though. Before I make my decision I am gonna check a few of them out like Coventry however I feel pressured into going to Hartfordshire just because I'll have accommodation and stuff already because my mum keeps moaning if I say I like another Uni so it doesn't feel like its all that my choice anymore (which is what uni is about). Its a little worrying but I plan to check a few uni's out soon because I wanna go to uni where I'll be happy not pressurised.

A Bit Late...

It seems its been a few days since I got a post up, this was due to a few things with computer troubles. I'll take it from the start...

Friday 16 February

Well today Deejay, Leigh and I went to Birmingham to meet up with our friends from around the UK (The Center) and one from the US. Most of what happened is on either there or on Night and Day's Blog.

All in all it was an awesome day and I really enjoyed myself and everyone was really nice people. The laser tag game brought out another side to us all, whether its emotionless (Slyth) or SWAT like (Garlic).

Saturday 17 February

Well today I had to go into work this time and the day was alright, not too dead and there was enough on the shop floor to do when there was no customers. After work I was meant to go out to Charlotte's birthday celebration however since I had EMA unpaid which was unusual during a half term period I had an extreme lack of money. However even though I had £4.70 for a taxi back Mum wouldn't really give me a lift over either so unfortunately I missed out on that and disappointed a few people as I have been told. So quite a boring Saturday in but I plan to go out this weekend to make up for it.

Oh and Happy 18th Cecelia!

Monday 19 February

Today was the start of school again and our slightly extended half term (snow) was over. Today was a nice day back though, got in on time (for once), talked with Cla and stuff on period 1 + 2 and got my psychology essay done! w00t! Then I had ICT which is always a good laugh and Deejay and I gave a good idea for Stephen's coursework. Then psychology wasn't bad either...yes I did say that, we worked in groups to prepare for a presentation tomorrow and my group consisted of:

It was good because we basically had to do the work on some sheet and then we spent the rest talking about alcohol, going out and Aaron's birthday. Also Aaron's phone went off and Miss Naylor asked me what I was doing?! WTF?!

Then it was home time and when I got home I found I had late EMA - a little too late. :( Then I made the effort and fixed my iTunes to the way it was, well pretty much. Some of the stuff still needs to be done but that can wait.

Hard Drive Mess

Well not too much happend today woke up late due to sleeping in and such. Then Leigh came round and we exchanged data from our hard-drives and such and then I had work. Thats about it.

Though my Hard-drive is playing ip now because when I put it in the drive source changed which messed up my iTunes and everything and now runs slower which really sucks. o_o

Dentist Prone/London Mayhem/iPod to the Max

As noticed its been a few days since I updated which is my bad I guess. Well I'll sum up my half term from the last update now. So nothing really happend on monday I guess that was the day of sleep and nothing...yeah. Tuesday I had the dentist and I found out my oral hygine is perfect...which translated is I take good care of my teeth(for the win!). Also I found out that one of my teeth is still a baby tooth. It was a new dentist since I changed from my last location and now go to the one in Stony Stratford. The interior is really nice, alot better than my previous one.

Today (being weds) I went to London to visit my grandparents since I haven't seen them in a good while. Although we didn't see them all that long only about half a day. The train journey was a mess; the fact this is all morning adds up. First of all there was some problem with the line so everyone was in a state of confusion. Even the staff had no idea whats goin on. We only needed to get off at Watford where we do some shopping (usually) but the train left and went straight to Euston and it was announced as the train left...good move train manager. So then we had to get an underground ticket which was stressful on mum since she got really confused at the underground machine...I was still very tired and hadn't properly woken up. The amount of people there were was crazy since it was first train on off-peak times. The rest of the day was okay though, or we say my brother found 5p for luck and it took affect (till he lost money to me in a stupid bet...not that I took it).

Updating my iPod just became more effort now though since its telling me I am offically at the limit on my ipod and out of it looks like at some point I'll be getting a larger one. I can't actually believe I have just under 30gbs of music alone.

Meanwhile heres a picture of my Grandfather's painting which he recently painted of a snow slope mountain resort...minus the resort.

Fog. Slosh and Snow

Well today was meant to be the last day of term but fortunately the school called it another Snow Day so I had the day off again. This time I slept til 10 when I had some breakfast and stuff. Then Leigh invited me out to the city so I went and I finally had my bonus and normal EMA come through, shame about last couple of weeks though. We went around finding some stuff to buy and I got:

  • Battle Royale Volume 11 Manga
  • Naruto Volume 1 Unleashed DVD
  • Crash
  • Clerks X
Then we went to Elements for lunch and we had the usual buffet. What was funny was the cocunut flavoured jelly deserts because neither of us liked them and they made my tummy feel weird. Saw Cla grocery shopping today aswell in her tracksuit. :O

Then later I had work, no not cancelled this time so I missed the party as a result. It was so dead today as well. Which is why they closed early yesterday not the original reason I had said.

Heres a pic from this morning of the fog that took over:

Snow Down

Well today I woke up actually early to get in on time and then I hear its snow and its quite high. So we had the local radio on to find out if school was on and it said it was cancelled for the day. What was really funny was that when I looked out the windown it seemed the car was gone...due to the snow. So it was a nice suprise because I still couldn't be bothered to go to school, really. Well I didn't get all the much done today though, kinda wasted it but I did go out and have a pretty funny snow fight with my little brother. I made some rather perfect throwing tools with snow.

Then I got a phone call from work telling me the store is closing at 6 due to weather which caused lack of staff or something and so I did not need to go in. Which made my day because I really could not be bothered to work as well.

Day of Lessons

Well today I woke up late...well early but I was too lazy to climb outta bed. Anyway at school at the time I planned to do my psychology homework in tutorial, there was a talk about funds in uni which was interesting vut the speaker was boring. I did my psychology in Key Skills instead when everyone else watched You Got basically it was pretty much a pointless lesson. Rest of school is as it usually is, though I was still really tired. The highlight of the day was proberly the fact the fire alarm went off three times, one at the end of media, one at the end of lunch (to which I was late to psychology) and one during psychology which then Miss Naylor actually believed me.

When I got home I continued updating my iTunes to some extent and watched a new anime start to finish called Ray The Animation which is about a doctor who has eyes that can see anything pretty much. Its one of the shows that is related to another anime called Black Jack but he makes an apprence twice.

This was orginally meant to be the 6th February but I updated just past midnight so a little late on my part.

The Blog Starter

Well I am getting quite frequent at posting at Deejay's and Cla's blogs these days that I'd thought I make one myself. I'll use it to talk about my day and any thoughts on my mind, also I am gonna "borrow" Deejay's song a day thing because I have kinda been doin that on my PC anyway so I might as well share it on here.

Well today was pretty interesting in the sense that I was so damn tired from Leigh's superbowl party since we were up til like 4:30. I managed to get through psychology in that hot stuffy room in that state...felt like a small accoplishment. When I got home I found some anime shows I downloaded are still running because they are series long torrents and I ended up fixing half of my iTunes. I really have far too many songs.

Anyway guys post here as well if you can and thats my first post...and hopefully many more to come.
