HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DADDY! 🙂[/edit]
I’m on track… I think. This good news though as I’ve always wanted to know what it would be like to take charge of my life. Honestly, I am the laziest person ever; which I tend to keep banging on about but it’s true. I mean, I’m not lazy lazy… it’s just that sometimes I can’t be bothered. However, now I’m on track. I’ve completed my personal statement to my satisfaction and I just need to get it checked over one more time and hopefully I’ll be able to send off my application today.
I’m just nervous about the whole sending off the application thing… what if I don’t get any offers? Coventry wants an interview if I do get an offer; I wonder how I’m going to hold up on that? I’m not bad when it comes to interviews. Well, to be honest I’ve only ever had mock ones at school and just one real one when I was applying for the job that I have now. But it wasn’t bad; I guess I can hold myself in interview conditions. I feel sick just thinking about the next part of university process. Waiting to see if you get any offers… I know some of my friends are agonising over and I’ll be one of them soon. I’m actually genuinely scared. If… no WHEN I get to university I will be glad it’s all over and I can get somewhere in life now.
Enough about university because I feel sick just thinking about it. I’m on track with schoolwork as well. There are merits to teaching yourself in some subjects; in English because my teacher is an arse and doesn’t have any lesson plans I tend to just try and do some of the stuff myself. Background reading is fun; for example, I found out when I was looking for notes on homosexuals in the media that King Lear was written around the time of King James I – who was a practicing homosexual. This linked back to my English and it kind of amazes me how much information you can find on the internet. I think the internet is one of the greatest inventions ever. Despite the fact that it can be addictive. Like caffeine. My friend told me that caffeine has something in it (I forgot, because I’m not a science person – paha) that makes you pee a lot.
I’ve also managed to get my mojo back into my creative writing and I recently found a story that I had written about 2 years ago. The style of my writing makes me cringe, so I’ve decided to re-write it and I must say it’s looking slightly better. I’m thinking of posting a few chapters on here and I’d really like if you guys could get a read. I’ve always mentioned that I love creative writing but I’ve never shared much of my work with any of my readers – with the exception of Mutay, of course.
And of course, I knew I couldn’t write this post without mentioning Doctor Who. Eeep, I sound like an obsessive maniac. Maybe I am, maybe I’m not. We’ll never know. 😛 Doctor Who is the #1 Sci-fi TV show in the SFX review of the decade that I bought the other day. I was immensely proud; as if I want the one who thought to bring back Doctor Who after how many years (I don’t even know, ha!).
I am currently addicted to the song Voodoo Child by Rogue Traders. I blame it on me watching a Doctor Who episode which had the Master take over the world with Voodoo Child playing the background – I’ve watched that episode like 5 times. I just like singing along with the Master when the song comes on, “Here come the drums, her come the drums!” Well, I say singing…
