[music |Music? Pah! im watching Lost!]

My god, this episode of Lost was amazing. i dont think TV has ever managed to make me feel how this episode did. im usualy very cynical about tv being able to invoke emotion, but i really did feel emotional. I want to find the writers and give them a big hug! even if they are men. :D

Well, i can't find anywhere to fucking live. All the good places are taken, too expensive, or dont rent out to first years, and all the cheap places are crap, in bad locations, or require me to live with someone who either isn't in my year or doesnt even go to my Uni, defeating the object of making new friends in my year. My parents are being about as supportive as someone trying to chop ur legs off ( couldn't think of anything that is specifically unsupportive) constantly banging on about how its THEIR money im spending, and how im not doing enough work to get more money, and its going to cost alot of money, and do i realize how much XYZ costs... I KNOW HOW MUCH EVERYTHING FUCKING COSTS, AND CONSTANTLY REPEATING IT TO ME ISN'T GOING TO MAKE IT ANY CHEAPER! ARGH!!!!!!!

If anyones family owns a house they dont want any more, il gladly take it off their hands.

Well, i got ABB, didnt get into UCL, because some bastard messed up my whole classes COursework, giving us all Ds and Es. Rather than shipping out to the sticks (Reading) i have got myself into Queen Mary's to do Geography. its top 10 for geography, won awards for its accomodation, and is slap bang in central london. Still bit pissed bout UCL, cos il probably GET the AAB once the coursework is remarked, but by then it will be too late. Oh well, such is the way of things.

well its now only 9 hours til results come out, and this perpetual knott in my stomach is starting to make me feel ill. I dont really have an appetite, and i cant concentrate on anything. Apparantly someone told me the UCAS track system could actually tell me right now if i've been accepted or rejected by UCL, but it doesnt tell you your actual grades, or whether ur close enough to ur offer to still get in, etc etc. And if i checked now i would spend all night stressing about it without being able to do anything about it, and thats worse than just not knowing. So im not going to check. What i am going to do is go and watch the Practice on ITV3 (yes, ITV3 really DOES show a good program!) read Last Hours, and possibly drink. Im sure i will speak to u all 2moro. Good Luck.

So Live 8 was pretty good. [Jul. 3rd, 2005|08:23 pm]

[music |Motion City Soundtrack - Commit this to Memory]

My dad got tickets off my mums brother who won the tickets but wasnt going to be around to go to the Concert. So me and my Dad decided to go. Only 3 days before the event, my dad recieved two GOLD CIRCLE tickets in the post! So we had to give the old tickets back to my uncle. So me and my dad were right at the front!

The concert itself was amazing. I liked everyone except Joss Stone, who is just boring, and Mariah Carey who a) has shit music b) is a such a diva that it pisses me off. Even "Snoopy Dog Doggy" as my dad called him was mildly entertaining; I dont think the BBC were prepared for some of the language coming out of his mouth. "Throw your motherfucking hands in the motherfucking air!"

My favourites were the Stereophonics,REM, and Travis, who all put on really good shows, play some of their best songs and really got the crowd going. The Killers, Razorlight and Snow Patrol were all good, but they all had relatively short sets (Killers only got to play 1 song!) and they didnt play their best songs.

All the oldies (my dad included) were well chuffed to see the Who and Pink Floyd, and even i enjoyed a few of their songs. Much to my shame, i even sung along to "Angels" when Robbie Williams came on. I couldn't help it, i got caught up in the moment.

It didn't finish til 12:30 so all the trains had finished and the buses were packed, so we got a bus to Finchley Central and had to walk to Edgware from there, as all the cabs were booked up. So i got home at 3:30, very tired but happy. Got a ton of pics of most of the acts, which i will try to get up on here at some point. And then to top off a good weekend i didnt get up til 3 in the afternoon today, and havent had to do anything! result.

Ode to Clubbing during exam time. [Jun. 15th, 2005|10:02 pm]

[music |Bloc Party - So Here We are]

Been a long time since i updated, but having nothing to do except revise (which makes me wanna cry) i thought it was about time i did.

Had a pretty good time and Buttoned Down Disco on Friday night. Thinking about it i did more drinking at the bar with Tom than i did dancing, and i cant really remember much of the music that was played. The evening ended with me being unceremoniously chucked out of the club for "standing on a table twice". Is this some new rule that i failed to see? Standing on a table once is ok, but twice and your out? Bastard wouldn't even let me get my coat!
I was walking up the stairs thinking "bollocks im going to have to stand around alone in the cold without my coat while i wait for the rest of them..." When i look up the stairs and see Tom! HE smiled rather too cheerfully as he told me he had been thrown out for being too drunk and nearly starting a fight with the bouncer inside.Smooth.

Luckily Tom had made friends with the Bouncer outside, who arranged for my coat to be brought out to me, which was nice. Turned out he was Albanian and spoke some greek! Me and Tom stood outside a club at 3am having a very civilised conversation with a Bouncer holding a bright yellow mug of tea, speaking with a thick Eastern European accent. Very surreal.



Does anyone else ever feel like they are actually going to throw up before an exam? I felt like that today, which is wierd, because i wasnt really much more nervous than normal. Maybe it was the coke and almond Croissant i had for breakfast. I know coke for breakfast generally isnt a clever thing to do but i needed caffine and dont drink tea or coffee.

The Exam was ok in the end. The Shakespeare and Poetry bits went pretty well, but i kinda fucked up on the modern prose section, which pissed me off. No1 came out of it feeling super-duper though, wich was comforting. After all,misery loves company!

And now im feeling depressed because Tom is going out cos he doesnt have an exam til Monday, and i am stuck at home because;

A) im broke
b) ive got an exam on friday
c) my parents would be pissed off
d) ive got work 2moro, which would cut any revision time i might get round to after recovering

The annoying thing is because those are all really good reasons to stay in, of course i want to go out more! And because im staying home on the pretence of doing revision 2moro, that then puts pressure on me to revise, otherwise me staying home would have been for nothing!


When exams are over im determined to try and spend 24 hours drunk. I've never done it before, and i think it should be an interesting experience. Someone is going to need to lend me some money...

I've just used my rights as a citizen of the UK and cast a vote for the Liberal Democrats. It shows how much i actually pay attention when i didnt even know the name of the candidate i was voting for til i left the booth... Nahid Boethe it turns out. No idea what his local policies are, but these days the local politics are so widely effected by Big Government that it barely makes a difference.

Remember, it doesnt matter who you vote for, as long as it isn't the Tories. Or Labour. Or UKIP. Or the Greens, cos theyr thinly vailed fascists. Or Respect, cos Galloway is a crook. Or BNP, or i'll have to hunt you down and bludgeon you with a spatchula.

Lastminute.com should sell last minute coursework [May. 3rd, 2005|11:43 pm]

[music |Helicopter by Bloc Party]

whoever made up that site lastminute.com is a genius, but they need to expand the stuff you can get on it. For example, Coursework. Its now 11:25 in the evening, and im still trying to put together a report on Trade regulations which looks like its been created by an 18 year old Geography student who has been studying the subject for several years, and has done deep and extensive research, by 2moro. So far it looks like an infinite amount of monkeys have been given an infinite amount of type-writers, and someone has tried to hobble a report from the jumbled up crap the damn apes have managed to bash out between eating their own flees. SUPER FUCKING DUPER. I would so pay good money if i could lastminute.com myself an ace piece of coursework. Get on all you entrepreneurs, theres a market here i'm tellin ya!

On a lighter note i had a pretty good weekend. Saturday night i went to Pizza Express where most of the evening was filled with small talk whilst all the hungry people waited for their food. I had a four seasons pizza and it was soooooo good. Then some guy who owed me money actually payed me back, but because i forgot about the money it felt like he was just giving me money for free, which was kick-ass. After that me and Tom went to Toast with Megan and Mercedes to be pretentious and drink very expensive cocktails. I had a Long Island Ice Tea, an Apple Crumble (which was sooooo good but way too small, they need to like serve them in bowls, or maybe deep dishes.) and a Bascilious, which tasted like a Strawberry smoothie so i kinda downed it (if u can down stuff thru a straw) only really feeling its effect a few minutes later. I think someone spiked Mercedes drinks cos even though she only had 2 she seemed very drunk and kept telling us how fantasticaly sexy it would be for her if me and Tom kissed. That so wasnt happening and we told her as much, but despite that she proceeded to spend the ENTIRE evening dreaming up rather kinky sex roleplays and scenarios and whispering them to Megan, and then trying in vain to get me and Tom to comply. I mean maybe she wasnt that drunk, is Merc normally that horny? I dunno. Only time will tell.


Today i spent most of the day trying to find excuses to go outside to enjoy the sunshine, even though i could hear my coursework calling at me like some sort of dying person who wont just fucking give up but insists on making you sit with them through each excruciatingly painful moment of their existence. I did catch some rays though, and sat on the grass feeling fat after eating a massive plate of Browny-cake thingy, with nuts and chocolate chips and melted marshmallows and banana slices in it. It was so good, but it kinda made me ill cos i ate so much of it. totally worth it though. Think there might be some left over actually. I feel a Midnight snack calling to me...

The Universe is clever [Apr. 27th, 2005|10:50 pm]

[music |Best of You by Foo Fighters]

So i wake up this morning, feeling reaaallly tired. For some reason having a free lesson in the mornings makes me unbelievably lazy. I guess its the weight of having to go to registration being off my shoulders. So i decided to sleep through my first lesson, which is history, and instead id work really hard in my middle free lessons and go to my last lesson, also history.

So, feeling quite smug, i get up around 11 and go to school to work. Its PISSING DOWN with rain, and im feeling really pissed off by the time i get to school. And then when i get there, i get told....my final lesson has been cancelled! CANCELLED! So not only have i missed a full day of lessons (NOT a good idea when exams are a couple of months away) but ive traipsed back and forth through the rain for an hour. OH Universe, how you mock me!

So when i got home i had a good sulk in front of the telly. And now i feel better. And it was sunny earlier, which was nice. And i was cheered by the fact that im booking my Driving THeory test and getting insured on my mums car. Wooohoo, i'm transforming into a Nic-on-wheels.Smooth.
