If only Christmas was sooner…

So it’s been a while since the last time I posted, I did mean to post, after I got back from the Mockingjay premier, but every things been a little hectic, as the work has been piling up, as the Christmas holidays draw near – I’m so looking forward to the holidays!

The premier was horrible, but fantastic, as I got to see Jennifer and everyone and even Dan – from Dan is not on fire – and Phil turned up. It was horrible, because unfortunately the people behind me, as I managed to get a spot at the front – yay – spent the entire time – even before people started to arrive – pushing me, so at one point me feet were in one place and then my head in another and I couldn’t stand up straight, because of this German girl who had pushed in, However I did get autographs from all the main people, although because I’m quite short and was being pushed around, I didn’t get very good pictures, as people kept putting their books and what not in the way. Me and my friends also got the posters off of the barrier that we where ‘standing’ against.

Overall I’m glad I went, but I don’t think I’ll be going to the Mockingjay part 2 premier next year – can’t believe we have to wait another year to watch the next part.

So yesterday me and my friends took a trip to Poole or rather back to Poole, as I sort of live in Poole, but I had to get a bus into Bournemouth and then another into Poole to go to the cinema to see Mockingjay, sure there are cinemas in Bournemouth, but we had these free ticket things for the cinema in Poole, so waste not want not and all that jazz.

It was a great film and not half as slow as everyone kept telling me it was, I mean my brother told me the book was really slow, but the film wasn’t. However about 5-10 minutes into the film we got evacuated from the building and out into the rain, which was just heaps of fun – not.

And at one point during the film this girl started to either laugh or hysterically cry, I’m honestly not sure which, I mean if she was crying I suppose it was understandable, it was the nasty bit with Peter.

But I do love the music from the Hunger Games films.

Well on Friday I’ll be off to Castlepoint to watch the Christmas lights turn on, well at least I think that’s where we’re going and then there’ll only be 2 weeks left until I’m off home again – yay. Although next week I’m got my house inspection and they’ve given us a list of things to clean, but since it’s not till next week I don’t think I’m going to put my name next anything yet, although I might put myself done for the bin, as it seems that only me and the other girl in the house actually ever take them out. I’m interested to see what the guy downstairs says he does, because at the moment I don’t think he does anything, I did mop the kitchen the other day and I clean the microwave after myself or if I notice it’s dirty when I’m going to use it and sometimes wipe the over top, although I must admit I haven’t cleaned the bathrooms at all yet, although I’m not sure who has, because sometimes I will go in there and see or rather smell that someone has done some cleaning in there. So I’m going  to wait a little and see what other’s put there name down for, although as soon as someone does I might just do it as well, as I think I might go for the bins, because I already do them and cleaning the floor in the kitchen/living room. I can’t remember how many things there were, but I think 2-3 each if about even or something like that and we all have to do our own rooms and all that jazz, but I’ll think about that more Tuesday-Wednesday, as I have those days off next week, so I can sort everything out then, so the house is lovely and clean. But at least this week I know that they are coming and when, so I can do some washing and not be on the edge of my seat about it and all that jazz, speaking of which I might do some today. Although I’ve got this online focus group to do, but the rest of the members aren’t doing anything so far and I’ve not got the questions so I can’t really start it up for anything, so I’m waiting around for the person with the questions to do something and get the ball rolling a little bit, since we’re meant to have done it by Friday and to have at least started by today – oh well.

So recently I’ve been a little hooked on this book series; The house of night. It’s about vampire and the main character is this unusual fledgling vampire. I’m on the second book of the series, and have put the third one on my Christmas list, yes I have a list, although I just put everything down and don’t expect to get most of it, although it’s mainly books. Such as this one that one of my pals – they’re peers who give us a ‘lesson’ each fortnight or so – was talking about in our last pal session; The Wisdom of Psychopaths by Kevin Dutton, since I’m interesting in psychopaths and sociopaths and the like, I thought it would be an interesting read – I hope. My friend got me this book on the brain; the private life of the brain and I haven’t really been able to get into it, but maybe that was because I wasn’t really in a factual mood, more a fiction one, as I’m all about facts with my coursework, so a bit of fiction is nice.

Quote/saying of the day: The psychopaths are always around. In calm times we study them, but in times of upheaval, they rule over us. – Ernst Kretschmer

If you wish hard enough and then throw it to the sky?

Remember remember the fifth of November the gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot. Sorry I know it’s no longer the fifth, but I just had to put that in there, but onto the really post

I’ve been thinking more and more lately, that I want to be in a relationship and then today I court myself wandering about falling in love. I know that thinking about love and relationships is stereotypically normal for a girl, maybe even more for one my age, but I haven’t really wanted to be in a relationship since the start of college maybe even longer than that. It’s sort of a foreign concept at the moment.

But then I find myself thinking it would be nice, perhaps just a open one then, because I’m not really good with the whole being faithful thing it would seem, but then maybe if I ever fall in love I will be and maybe I’ll actually be possessive. I can be possessive, but only up until the point which I actually have something to be jealous about the then just puff, that feeling is gone and I’m sort of bored with the whole thing and I tend not to want to continue with something that bores me, unless it will be rewarding in the end, such as going to college in the first place, don’t get the wrong there, there were some good times and good friends and all that jazz.

So I’ve got the week off for what they call reading week, it’s basically half term a week too late. But I have bought some textbooks and I’ve written an essay on applied psychology, which means I have read some books, although one of the ones I got was useless, although I think it might be useful later – yay for the long hall.

But instead of sticking around here and bumming around the house and what not, because quite a few of my friend are doing the same course as me and were leaving as well, I went home for what was meant to be a long weekend and turned into about a working week long. But it was nice to see the family, well the father, his girlfriend and the big brother, who is now driving and has got himself a car with all that money that he never spends – damn people who can resist temptation, I wish I was one and then at the same time I don’t. So I met up with a friend and we went shopping, not exactly the wild homecoming one might like, but it was nice and I did go out for Halloween. I went over to a friends house, then went to another house and played drinking games with a bunch of strangers and some people I have probably only met once, but it was funny as they get mashed pretty quickly, well one of them did. Although  I wasn’t drinking myself, because I was going home the next day and had to get up to catch the train.

So while at home, I somehow managed to watch all 3 series of Miranda and now am wishing there was another series – oh the sadness of the loss of funniness. It was nice to find something to really laugh at, because some comedies aren’t really laugh out loud comedies, there funny sure, just not laugh out loud funny and then I found the IT crowd and have indulged in that since I got back, to what I was calling home when I was back with the family, as I sort of have 2 homes at the moment, I suppose.

And tomorrow I’ll be off to London. I am doing a bit to travelling this week. Me and some gal pals are going to the Hunger games premier, but I’m going down a day early and are going to go and see my friends or at least one of them and stay here a night – such fun!

Although why do they make the London underground look so complicated and what the hell is with the oyster card thing? I’m sure there’s a good reason for it, but it does seem like I’m going to have to deal with a more than necessary, so because I was basically crying over the tube map I found, my friend has offered to meet me at Waterloo station. Even after getting the father to try and explain the map to me, I still don’t think I understand it, but I have been assured that it is actually much more easy then it looks – I don’t think it could possibly be harder than it looks, as to me it looks like a circuit board more than anything. I don’t like travelling on train and the underground look ten times harder than that.

I had to do 2 changes on the train I took home and it cost a fortune, annoying as hell. Fortunately I did alright, although on the way back I couldn’t find the stairs to the get to the platform I needed to be on and ended up walking to the wrong end of the platform I was on and missed my train, fortunately I did write down the times for the next train, so I just had to sit and wait an extra hour for the next train and then the next one was about 20 minuets late, making me think I might have missed that one as well, and then because I was an hour later than I had expected I, I had to sit and freeze at the bus stop for 40 minuets and the bus was full, so I didn’t get a seat for most of the ride, thankfully I put my bag in the rack, so I didn’t have to hold onto that.

I have made the father promise to come pick me up for Christmas, as I want to bring back stuff to wash, because I don’t want to have to spend the money on the washing machines, although I do have some washing I need to do and I need to get my shoes out from in the airing cupboard .

I’m also thinking about dumping Mr G, although I don’t think dumping is the right word. But then I want to find a new fb, before I do that. He’s just sort of been bugging me a little recently, although we haven’t seen each other for about 3 weeks now. I might wait and give it some time and see, but that’s the way that is heading right now.

Any ways only 6 weeks until I go on Christmas break, well maybe only 5 really now – yay! Although I thought I got a month off, but I don’t, I get a week shy of a month, but I’m still looking forward to it, because my friend has promised there will be lots of partying and that she invite me too all the parties she gets invited to, which is wonderful for me, because she has some ‘good’ friends and I’ll get to see the first again – oh it’ll be a lovely reunion I’m sure, he might have broken it off with the girl he is cheating on by then. Although one of the brother’s can’t get Christmas off of work, so he won’t be around this years, which will be the first year we haven’t had all the family together for Christmas, that being myself, the father and the two brothers. A small family, but still, although this year the other brother might bring his girlfriend along and the fathers girlfriend will probably be with us, like last year, so it won’t be like there won’t be people around and all that jazz. Plus he said that he’ll be around for New years, although I don’t know if I will be, new years if a great excuse for a party. I say I’m not really a party animal, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like it. Although I’m trying to persuade one of my new friends it isn’t weird to go out just the two of us, maybe she feels weird because I’m bi, but she’s not really my type or anything, so I would have to be quite drunk and lonely for me to make a pass at her. not to say that she ugly or something. Just I’m picky when it comes to girls and really not very picky with guys, as long as they are 30 or under and 18 or above then I’m fine really.

So I’ve been reading the Picture of Dorian Grey again. I think I have started this book at least 3 times before, but this is the first time I think I might finish it, as I’m on the second to last chapter and am going to read some on the train ride to London, if I don’t finish it before then. I adore this book and after starting to read it the first time, I did watch the film, but honest I think the film does have it’s good point and everything, but with most adaptations the original is better. But I think they did quite a decent job with the film. Although that does mean that I know what happens or at least I think I know what happens in the end, which does sort of spoil it, but I’m still going to read those last two chapters, then I can ,move on to this new series I’ve found; The house of night. It’s another vampire series, but it seems like it could be good and I might ask for the next book in the series for Christmas along with a bunch of other things. I’ve been compiling a mental list of things that I want, although as per usual I’m not expecting to get half them, as it’s more a list of things I can’t really afford to buy myself at the moment and all that jazz. which means that they’re all quite expensive, such as this game that I want for my 3DS or at least I think it’s for the 3DS, most DS related games are now or that flat one, that I despised the idea of – I just didn’t get it.

I love the look of the cute animation for a start!

Any ways I could probably go on and on about games the what not, although recently I haven’t really been playing any, mainly because I don’t have the money to buy new ones and I tend to get a little sunk, when I play online ones and when I finally surface it’ll usually some god forsaken hour and I have to get up at 7:30 the next day, so I’ve not really been playing many recently, but just talking about it here, makes me want to – oh damn. But I’m going away tomorrow, so got to get a nights sleep tonight, although this time I don’t have to get up early and I’m only taking the one bag, tried to pack as lightly has possible, but I think I could have gone lighter, I’m not really the best packer to be honest, I tend to want to take everything, for jics – just in case situations.

Quote/saying of the day: How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being. – Oscar Wilde.

How indeed?

Not that I purely agreed with the ideas on woman that Oscar Wilde displays in this book, but I do like this quote.
