Say I Don't Mind You Under My Skin, I'll Let The Bad Parts In [Jan. 8th, 2007|06:07 pm]
[Currently Feeling |apatheticapathetic]
[Currently Grooving to |Lacuna Coil - Devoted]

I spent £70 on books for my course today. Grim.

In other news, after 3 days of working on the damn thing, I'm actually pretty impressed with my Jacobean Drama essay. If my evil tutor gives me a low mark again I may have to kill him.

Overheard two of my housemates doing 'stuff' the other night. Was most disturbing. Did make me giggle when I heard one of them fall out of bed though!

My cream sheets are drying on the clothes horse; looks like there's a large, square ghost in the corner of my bedroom.

I've got myself a date on Thursday with some guy who's been angling for one for about a year and a half now. My ex seems to think we're gonna get back together and so I'd feel guilty about this date but given said ex doesn't actually pay a blind bit of attention to me unless he thinks he's gonna get some I don't feel too bad about it! I text him t'other night when I was out and he didn't reply, despite the fact that he was in a club literally just round the corner from me and we could have met up. Now is that something a guy who was madly in love with you (like he claims to be) would do!?

Soooo, long time no entry. Anyone still reading this?

The gap between entries was filled with doing badly on my uni course, drinking too much, being blackmailed, falling for the wrong guy, filling our house with red balloons (99 to be precise) and buying more than I can afford in the sales (overdrafts are beautiful things).

I'm once more back in Leeds in my most fabulous house, which I chose to believe remains fabulous even if the fire alarm doesn't work, none of the windows fit properly, and it rains in the hall everytime someone has a shower. Exams coming up that I'm absolutely dreading after getting naff marks on my last essay when I thought I was doing pretty well. Supposed to be revising right now but procrastination's so much more fun.

My New Years Eve was spent disappointingly sober, but there were sparklers and a trampoline and some of my favourite people in the whole world so it was fun all the same. New years resolutions are:
-Learn to cook. It's always my housemates who do the cooking. I'd like to do it for a change!
-Don't go above 8st 10. Usually I make a resolution to lose weight but I think I'm happay as I am this year so I'll just resolve not to put anything on!
-Be less crazy. Good crazy is ok, but the psychoticness needs to go. Over Christmas certain family members said they were scared of little me now, and my moodswings are actaually starting to push people away so this needs working on!

This morning I woke up, went downstairs for what must have been no more than a minute, and came back upstairs to find a spider on my pillow, right where my head had been. Horribleness. Now I'm feeling them all over me and seeing spiders everywhere. On the bright side though, I was finally brave enough to catch it and remove it all by myself! (It's sad how immensely proud I am of myself for this 'achievement')

And that ladies and gentlemen, is my life today in a nutshell :) Now to get learning about Sir Gawain and the Green Knight...

"...he crumpled like a potato" [Sep. 20th, 2006|12:52 pm]
[Currently Feeling |chipperchipper]

Just remembered a conversation I had with some smoking guy at the Dry Dock. We were talking about piratey things if I remember right, but that's not important. It's the way the conversation ended that was ace:

Me: That smoke smells awful you know.

Him: So does that mean you won't be giving me your number then? *winks cheesily*

Me: No. Because you smell.

And away he walked.

Ramming Speed!!! [Sep. 20th, 2006|09:34 am]
[Currently Feeling |sorerough]

Piratey pub crawl was most definitely a success! Feeling rather rough right now though, been 3 days of heavy drinking, not good for a small person!

I'ce managed to fall for one of my housemates' best mate. And he likes me too. Now how often does that happen really!? BUT (there had to be a but) he has a girlfriend, and he's had this girlfriend for a year and a half. Regardless of what he's telling me is he really gonna end things with his long-term girlfriend for little old me? Course he isn't! And cos he's Ali's best mate he's gonna be round at our house really often which rather sucks. Though right now Ali isn't speaking to him cos of last night, so that's not too much of a problem at the minute! I feel so guilty! I'm officially the 'other woman.' Though to be fair he was suggesting we get a taxi back to mine, just me and him, but I said no, so it's not like I'm being a ho. Oh the drama!

Just remembered my mate went home with the bouncer last night. Bless her. As bouncers go he was actually rather groovy looking, and he's dead friendly.

Twenty Years Of Bad Descisions Havn't Taught Me Much At All [Sep. 13th, 2006|03:16 pm]

I'm 20!

My birthday night out was a success in the end, I had an awesome time and no one argued (for the most part, there was a slight glitch when a certain best mate of mine put a daddy long legs on my head and I had to yell at him but we can overlook that cos he bought me loads of drinks afterwards!). And among the presents I got were 2 bottles of Bailey's, awesome :). I got bought £6 worth of lottery tickets too, so fingers crossed come Saturday night I could be a millionaire!

Actual birthday was spent mostly sleeping, though I had hardly any hangover, was groovy. Got loads of good stuff off my family, and they've said they'll buy some furniture for my new room too.

Really looking forward to my piratey pub crawl now, it's gonna have to do well to top Monday night though!

I feel sooo old!

Drama and a half last night.

My best mate from home is going to see Robbie tonight in Leeds, so I said he and his girlfriend could kip in my house, even given them my bed. And they came up yesterday so we could go out, the three of us plus my one housemate who wasn't busy. I was dead nervous about them meeting cos I had an awful feeling they wouldn't get on very well. How right I was!

It was all going good, we were at my house drinking and everyone was getting on then we headed out towards the club. On the way my housemate got really upset about something and said she wanted to go home. She didn't expect us to go with her or anything, she just didn't feel like a night out.

My best mate took offence to this, there was much shouting on all sides, I told someone certain things I wish I hadn't and we got split up.

When we found each other, my best mate's girlfriend's handbag had been stolen and more arguments kicked off. Then my best mate hit me, so my housemate jumped to my defence and started shouting at him, only to be hit by his girlfriend, and lots more shouting and crying ensued.

The police came and the pair of them went off to make statements and me and my housemate came home, leaving them with a key to get in.

This morning she has acted like nothing ever happened and he is blanking me completely. No apology, no anything. He just left the house without saying a word to me, still expecting to come home after the gig and sleep in my bed. And I'll let them cos I'm a fucking pushover.

When someone has given up their bed for you, someone who you hit hard across the face the night before, you should at least look them in the eye the next morning. Way out of order.

It's this kind of thing that drives people to murder [Sep. 8th, 2006|10:54 am]

Last night, after removing 1 woodlouse from my floor and 2 from my bed, i picked up my jimjams to find guees what? A dead woodlouse. 
They are going to my clothes to die. 
NOT pleasant.

Unlike everyone else in my house, I have not been dealing with the abundance of woodlice by stomping them. I have instead, rather humanely, been putting them out of my window.

But just now, as I was disposing of yet another one, a thought occurred to me: Can woodlice actually survive a three-storey fall?

I certainly hope so, else all my efforts will have been in vain and I am a mass murderer os sorts.

Gotta love Pretty Woman.

Was walking into town today past uni & they had an open day on. I spotted two girls I used to work with at the pub so I kind of smiled and said hi. And what did they do? Nothing. Completely blanked me. Seems I have become some sort of social leper. Great.

Although, people are finally starting to respond about my birthday. Got a fair few definites and a couple of maybes, so I'm feeling better about it now. Tomorrow I intend to try on my awesome new birthday top with everything I own to see what looks nice and get very excited about it all, cos that's what girls do! And then maybe we'll all put on our piratey stuff again in preparation for the 19th and have plastic swordfights. Living here is ace!

It's just girls left in my house now after one guy went home, so once again calm has descended over 125! Had a proper girly night in with sweeties, talking about clothes, girly films, and (for some unfathomable reason) the three spiciest pizzas on the takeout menu.

Best mate from home and his girlfriend coming to stay tomorrow. So hope it all goes well and they get on with everyone in my house. Have a niggling fear they'll all hate each other and I'll be expected to chose a side or something. Should tidy my room actually...

I Guess There's Got To Be A Break In The Monotony, But Jesus, When It Rains How It Pours [Sep. 7th, 2006|12:31 am]
[Currently Feeling |crushedcrushed]
[Currently Grooving to |Ok Go - Oh Lately It's So Quiet]

Ok, so I know my high Test the Nation score was probably the result of some mistake or something, but really, I hate how my friends are all so certain of it. I mean, is it really that inconceivable that I might actually be bright? The proper IQ test i took way back in school gave me pretty much the same score, but I haven't told them that. Shouting at them all for assuming I'm dumb would seem arrogant in the extreme.

And it's really not that I want to show off about being clever or anything that's bothering me, it's the fact they all assume I've got nothing going on up there. I don't like that my friends have such firm opinions like that about me. Do I really come across as being that dim?
