So I’ve sort of worked it out with my friends, honestly it wasn’t that hard, because they’re modern people and can put stuff aside and move on, which I’m not sure if is a good or bad thing in the long run, but I suppose right now that doesn’t matter too much.
My new atomizer arrived today, so I’ve been vaping on that all day and I have to say that it is amazing compared to my old ones, you can really taste the e-juice, plus with the istick the old atomisers had a habit of spitting hot juice at me and breaking quickly, so I’m really glade it arrived today, because my throat can’t take any more boiling liquid being splashed on it. I know why don’t I just stop for a while? Well I’m not too sure, I suppose I’m a little hooked or something – and I’m not even vaping the stuff with nicotine.
I’ve been looking into festivals to go to over the summer, since I think my dreams of going abroad with my friends are dashed, not that I’m going to stop trying and what not, but I’m looking for fun things to do, just in case that doesn’t work out, plus it seems that everyone is making summer plans, bar me, so I want to do something. I am not just going to lazy around all summer, I’ve got about 4 months off, because of freshers and my exams finishing so early and what not, so I’m going to try and make the most of it, even if that means I can’t do it with my friends like I would have liked.
Sure I’m far to scared to go travelling abroad by myself, mainly because I’m not the luckiest person or the most cautious person in the world, which when you add being in the country where you don’t know the language or anyone or anything, can be dangerous combination and I’m quite a shy and timid person in strange, wonderful and new places, so I might not have as good a time, plus it could be really lonely and how wants to feel lonely?
And then there’s travelling alone as a woman – I know that’s sort of sexist or whatever – but I feel like in some places it’s not the best idea.
But I have to believe in my… faith I guess you would call it, why not faith in the universe. It’s this idea or theory or idea based on a religious idea/ideal, that if you want something bad enough the whole universe conspires to help make it happen, that’s not to say that you don’t have to try and universe does not do things for you, it just helps. Because in my own potentially twisted way I do believe in destiny and although I may never be prime minister or leader of the free world or whatever, I hope I’m going to live forever. I know wishful, slightly delusional thinking, but hey ho I’m slightly delusional and I like to daydream, well I’ve know that about myself for a long time and there is the possibility – although I’m ready to give in to it yet – that a daydreaming is all I am. I suppose in the grand scheme of things it’s not the worst life to live and perhaps one day I’ll write a book based on it and that’s how I’m gain my immortality.
So me and the friends went to Nando’s for dinner – yay Nando’s so exciting! – but it was a bit of an ego boost for me, because there was this table of guys that was checking me out and I’m in pretty boring cloths today, just my rock and roll top and blue jeans, nothing special. I don’t need other to validate my beauty or whatever, but I do appreciate.
After all the Chicken or beans in my case, because I wanted to know how they were going to put my beans in the burger and of course it was just like how you could expect, but I did get this cool can of iced tea – it’s a little sad how much I like the can my tea came in, but oh well. I went round to my friend place to finish off the pudding we bought yesterday and we were going to watch Big Bang Theory, but in the end we just started talking about travelling and Japanese culture and culture in general and how Western/English people are really becoming more and more egocentric and how we think children shouldn’t have so much technology all the time and all that jazz.

So today is Friday the 13th, hmm. I thought it would be a little different
Alright so today me and some friends,went to look at a flat. They both liked it, but I’m a little apprehensive, because it’s really quite squishy and dark in places, because of the lack of windows and the rooms where quite small, although not too much smaller than my room here. One room has an en-suit and is also probably the biggest room, so of course I want it, not because of the bathroom, but because of the space.
So any ways after the viewing and sighing of the forms, because even though I was a little apprehensive about the place, honestly there isn’t anything else this late, so that was probably the best we were going to get, I think I’ll see about a different place next year, but I’m sure I’ll just grow into the place and the location is great, in between the university and the town centre, although as my friend pointed out, it’ll take a bit to get to Aldi, but we can go after lectures and what not.
We went to get some food, because it was actually quite late and we were all a little hungry and since we were 2 minutes from Asda we went to McDonald’s – there’s a McDonald’s in the Asda here. After that one of my friends had to get to work – she’s started working in a care home, which I think is the kind of job I should get, or something like that, something that is slightly related to the field I want to work in. So me and my other friend stayed and hung out in McDonald’s for a bit, before deciding it would be fun to head down to beach and walk along the beach. So we had been walking along the beach for a little while and it had already been nearly dark when we had started out to the beach and it was quite dark. This group of guys walk past us and they start say or should I say shouting ‘huge boobs’. I’m just ignoring them really, I mean I just guess there messing around, but then my friend turns to me and says ‘I think their talking about you’ and I’m like oh really you think so, well thanks then, always nice to know people appreciate my wonderfulness, which then leads into a discussion about significant others and how our parents and in my case sibling would react to us bringing them home. I don’t really bring mine home, when I know the family is around, because the father and one of my brother’s blatantly told me that they were going to act all embarrassing and macho and all that jazz, just to annoy me and scare the person I brought home, although I’m not sure they would act that way if I brought a girl home, since they don’t know I’m bisexual, although one of my brother’s thinks I’m a lesbian I think, well he once told me he’d be alright with it if I was – nice to know.
As it turns out I might be celebrating my birthday – oh great – since my friend might not be going home for reading week, so she wants to celebrate, I’m sure if I told her “no” she wouldn’t make me or anything, just go about it until the day. So I told her yes now, to stop the constant talk about it. Looks like my birthday plans have been ruined slightly, since I said I’d go to see a film or something nothing big.
It seems that this week has been a big spender week, since I bought all my new textbooks for this semester, which took a big chunk out of my money for the next 3 weeks and then today I had to put down a £99 deposit on this flat and soon I’m going to have pay the rest of it which is £400, so I’ve asked the father if I can borrow the money from him and then pay him back over Easter, because I have the money, but not in an account that I can get to.
Alright so I’ve completely over looked the two things that people have been talking about most the past 2 days; Fifty shades and valentines day. So I do actual want to see the film, but I’m not going to go see it in the cinema, mainly because I don’t want to have to pay that much to go see it and also because I don’t want to sit in the cinema with the kind of people I image will be going to see it. It’s like going to see a children’s film, you have to go during the day on a school day, so you don’t have to deal with screaming children, which I never really was, because I wasn’t super interested in film when I was a child, so I hardly even went to see them in the cinema. I was more interested in exploring and stuff like that – I was a bit of tom-boy, you could say.
So now that’s out of the way…
So I’ve been a little obsessing over Stirling recently, although I must state that I do like some of her stuff more than the rest, I think she talented, so yeah.
Quote/saying of the day: That’s it, baby. If you’ve got it flaunt it – Mel Brooks (The Producers).
So sometimes I think I’m too ambitious and then other times I feel like I don’t have enough ambition. But then maybe I’m just too ambitious in certain aspects of my life and not enough in others. Although it would be nice to sit somewhere in the middle, since that’s where I like to take up residence.
So my master plan is coming along smoothly so far, but I see some bumps in the road ahead, such as lack of co-operation from my friends, because I’m keeping them in the dark and all that jazz. Also lack of finances, but I’m sort of leaving that up to the universe and if it does actually work the way I’m very much hoping it tends to work, then that should be just dandy.
Speaking of finances, I’ve entered into the postcode lottery, mainly because I don’t have to pay for it and I’m probably the only person around here – with my postcode – that has entered, I need as much money as I can get at the moment. Although being the only person with my postcode on there is apparently not that big of an advantage, actually it’s a disadvantage, because my postcode is less likely to be draw, although it does mean if is draw, I get all the money and don’t have to split it. I did think about talking some of neighbouring friends into doing it as well, however I really need and money and am willing to take the chance, plus I’ve got postcodes entered, because I’ve used both my university postcode and my home postcode, although I don’t know how the prize giving works, so if my home one did somehow win the money might be sent there, which could be a problem, since the father would see it and probably give me an ear full about ‘these sorts of sites’ being bad and what not.
He used to play the lottery every week, but I suppose somewhere down the road he gave up and now he only plays it now and then, like at Christmas or if there’s a super big jackpot, times like that.
I won’t say I’m the most unlucky person out there or the most lucky, I think I’m about average-ish, maybe a little below.
So I’ve got an in-class test tomorrow, which I haven’t revised for – oops! But it’s not until the afternoon, so I can get up then I can revise in the morning and what not. Although if this weekend has been any indication, I’m might not even make it to the test, because I’ll still be fast asleep. I’m going to try and go to bed early today – at least earlier than 5 am, which is when I’ve been going to be recently.
On another note; There are so many places I want to visit now, I’ve no idea how I’m going to be able to see them all before I die or get so old that I can’t move anyone or am blind, because I image that I’m going to be one of those old people that getting some sort of horrible disease and is basically bed ridden and not one of those old people that can actually still do things, unlike what most people think old people can and can’t do. But let’s not get into that. I’ve been trying to squeeze as many places as possible into 25 days, while still allowing for enjoyment of the place, so no less than 3 days in each places, including travel days – at the moment – but that doesn’t really mean many places and there are some places that I would like to spend more time in and what not. You know really get to soak them up and all that jazz, not just a whistle stop tour of the vicinity.
I’ve wanted to go to Venice for a while now, but I’m leaving that one of the back burning, because I think it would be nice to go with just one or two people or perhaps just by myself, not with a bunch of friends.

So the last couple days I’ve been off at a friends house. We headed down to the river and did some shots, to warm ourselves up, because heading in the surprisingly cold water, although two of the girls I went with got a little drunk on the shots and we were scared they might drown. But everything was good and we headed back to the friends house, to sleep and drink some more – that kind of makes us some like alcoholics a little bit, but were young and living it up, while we still can. Plus my friend has just gotten out of a rather serious relationship, so she really blowing off stream, with drinks and what not, because he wouldn’t really let her drink when they were together, or do a bunch of other fun stuff, that she has now taken to doing. So she’s making up for the couple of years of not being able to in a few short weeks.
So after we got up this morning, we decided to head into the city – because I found out I do live by a city and not a town, although it’s a very small city, but a city none the less – and go shopping for dresses for tomorrow night, unfortunately I didn’t find anything, so I’m going to have to be content with my dull old dresses – although some of them are new. But my friend got a dress and the other got some fantastic shoes, which makes me want to buy these lovely shoes I saw the other day, that I fell in love with. I mean I don’t really buy shoes, not as much as other girls I know. I do love them, but I only really buy with necessity, so I wasn’t going to get them, but we’re thinking about going out next Friday and Saturday, so I’m thinking I could wear them then and that’s necessity – right? I mean I’m going to buy a new dress for next weekend – even though I have quite a few – and I want shoes to match, because the ones I have at the moment are super boring, apart from my over the knee boots, but their not a very big heel or anything, and I like wear heels, because I’m short and I like the tallness they give me. Not that I really dislike being short, it’s just nice to to tall sometimes as well, plus everyone – or nearly everyone – wears heels, so if I didn’t I would feel like a midget and I don’t have anything against rather small people, I just don’t like feeling like one myself – it’s a personal thing, I suppose.

So I hear this the other day and know I’m blogging about it, enough said?
