children, don’t get too drunk

Recommended listening: Big Girl (You Are Beautiful) – Mika

New layout; yay :] I used again for my search in themes and I found this among the few and I really liked it. I admit, I feel it is quite similar to the previous one but still it’s different in it’s own way.

How has everybody been? Been up to anything exciting? I can’t believe it’s nearly the end of the week already. Furthermore, I can’t believe it’s already fucking February (excuse, my French (argh)) (!) I swear 2011 just started, like, last week or something like that. Is it, honestly, just me or is time just flying way too fast? Remember when you were little and you couldn’t wait to grow up and double digit age couldn’t come fast enough but now that I’m older, I’m like, “Please, Mr. Time, calm your horses down. I would actually like to live my life!” Sigh.

Bit of a hectic week for me, to be frank. Monday I do not have any lectures, which I’m pretty glad for – so I spent that day relaxing and attempting to tidy my room. One word. Fail (cry). I ALWAYS somehow get distracted by something. Tuesday was presentation day and although I thought it went pretty well, our lecturer gave quite a low mark. We passed, but it was still quite low – I put a lot of effort into it as well but our lecturer suggested we add more theoretical substance, which is fair enough. I used this video in my presentation and I garnered a few laughs, especially from the support lecturer who was laughing so much in the corner.

After that lecture, I had to meet up with my other group to discuss Thursday’s presentation and then I went shopping with two of my friends, Brogan and Ayo. Well, I say shopping – Brogan did most of the shopping because she was looking for an outfit for her birthday and the following two evenings as well. I’m attempting to save my money but it’s difficult because I gotta do food shopping, pay rent and buy other essentials like feminine products, shampoo, washing powder, etc. Luckily, I’m entitled to a bursary of ยฃ329 which I don’t have to pay back which should help a little but I totally need to find a job. Job hunting has been pushed aside though because of the amount of work I have to do D:

Wednesday I went out to a club called Iglu for a friend’s birthday – she turned 20 yesterday (cake) – but she got so drunk that she didn’t even get into the club which was a little ๐Ÿ™ Even when we tried to give her loads of water and feed her chips to try and sober her up, it didn’t work because she kept pushing it away and was just way too gone. She kept falling over as well and had dirt all up her dress and apparently when Brogan phoned her yesterday to wish her happy birthday, she said she had bruises all over her face (o) Despite that, though, it was still a good night. They played good music and it was the same DJ as the one at Gatecrasher in Birmingham but for the last 20 minutes they just played bhangra nonstop even though it was playing in the other room as well, haha.

Yesterday, my night out was a bit of a flop. We were supposed to go to Review in Birmingham but the man who was supposed to sort out the coach was being an idiot. Basically, we were supposed to leave at 10.30 but then my friend who sold us the tickets was like, “The man said 11.30,” so, all of us arrived were he was supposed to pick us up at 11.30 and we waited out in the freaking cold for an hour. I was wearing a skirt. No tights. :< I was more than a little pissed. Brogan and I ended up going back to my other friend’s and having a little drink-up but I didn’t feel too good, so we grabbed something to eat and I split and went home to munch my chicken and chips on my onesies :]

I slept until like 1 in the afternoon, today, because I wasn’t feeling too good but I’m feeling miles better – I just needed some water and a bite to eat, really. It’s Brogan’s birthday tomorrow but she’s in Essex, so we’re just going to go out for a meal next Monday evening ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh, I love Mika! I haven’t listened to him in forever, but
    I do like that song. I also really like the new layout! I just got
    hosted so I was looking for a theme and saw this at coloursplash
    and considered it. It’s really pretty. Ah! I know, I can’t believe
    the first month of 2011 is over! I never feel like I have time for
    anything. I wish I could go back to being little again. :/ I need
    to start job hunting again. It’s such a pain in the butt. I took a
    little break from it because of the holiday and I was just too
    lazy, but… I should start again. Good luck with your hunting!
    Also, this comment box isn’t wrapping the words, so I’m just
    hitting enter so I can see what I’m typing. I hope this comment
    doesn’t look all crazy with my line breaks. Just thought I’d point
    that out.
