I returned from my holiday almost three weeks ago now and it honestly feels like it never even happened. We were gone for 16 nights but it was over in a flash! This year's holiday was the best I have ever been on, hands down. We went on a Western Mediterranean cruise stopping at Malaga, Zakynthos (Zante), Corfu, Dubrovnik, VENICE AHHH, Korcula and Gibraltar. Surprisingly enough Venice was my favourite port of call. I've always wanted to go there and I wish we could have had two days there instead of just the one because there simply wasn't enough time in the day to fit everything in!
Cruises are the best holidays ever, and anyone who doubts that... you're wrong! I ate so much food I'm pretty sure I put on about half a stone in the time we were gone. I am such a pig, but it is one of the (many) joys of cruising. It was also lovely being able to spend time with my family because we're often too busy at home to spend much time together. We even managed to go without having a hideous amount of arguments. It was also my parents 25th wedding anniversary so they renewed their vows on board with the Captain along with their own private function room, a cake, photographer and an ice sculpture! It was such a lovely day.
I spent most of the time when we were sailing sunbathing, eating and reading. The past year has been so stressful it was an incredible feeling realising that I'd been sitting there for ages just watching the sea (along with the odd Turtle, Dolphin and Whale), thinking of nothing. I have now decided I belong on a cruise ship, after being on a fair few cruises (although not as many as some!) I have decided I really want to work on one. I have to wait until I'm 21 though, very upset about that.
Iyer!! Haven't posted in ages because I have been a busy bee. I went on holiday at the end of June but I will devote a separate post to that.
Anyway, I have now officially finished sixth form and we had our prom a couple of weeks ago and it was so much fun but also so sad! Most of my friends are going off to uni and it's crazy to think that after results day in a couple of weeks I probably won't see 85% of those people ever again. Mind you, I will not lie, some I will be glad to be rid of for good!
Everyone looked beautiful and even the teachers managed to scrub up to a fairly high standard. It was a great night and luckily the English weather held out until the next day so we had sun! I am still feeling the harsh money grabbing wrath of this night though. I spent so much money and now I am stuck inside until I have more!
I'm staying at home for the next year and will be doing work experience in event organisation and I'll possibly be going to uni next year. Not sure at the moment but my boyfriend and some of my friends will still be here so not all is lost.
I hope you're all feeling swell and enjoying the so called 'summer'. (in England anyway, the weather here is terrible.) It's so depressing!!
I will admit, I have been watching it, but initially I had to force myself. After a brief glimpse of it when I flicked over from Glee (oh yes) on E4 +1 and saw some pompous man saying 'I hate Topshop', I immediately took a great disliking to it. I will admit the majority of the characters still irritate me with their snobbery and in your face poshness, but I found it highly amusing as in the first episode in particular they continually tried to subtly slate TOWIE by talking about their hate for all things fake (fake tan, eyelashes etc). ANYWAY, while my heart truly lies with The Only Way is Essex with Nanna Pat and her sausage plaits I have been enjoying the whole Caggie, Spencer and Funda love triangle thing and can't wait to see tonights episode.
Haha. I have become what I hate. It's okay, I'd still rather watch Misfits and The Inbetweeners, proper English telly, not a copy of American programs. But it's not a complete copy, like America stole Shameless. I want to know how that even works seeing as it's set in a 'typical' English council housing estate... Who knows, unless someone from America tells me where it's set over there!
This week is my last week of sixth form ever and it's gone so quickly! I actually don't want to leave because I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my life and that scares me a lot. A lot, a lot. I guess I'll just bum around with my dog and eventually become a really crazy dog lady who never leaves the house because she has too many dogs to look after. But I can't wait to spend the summer with my friends and my boyo wheyyyyyyyyyy. I'm not going to uni anymore though, I changed my mind (just as well I changed it before rather than after, that's how I'm looking at it!) so I'm going to be lonely next year because most of my friends are leaving and are going to spread across the country booo.
But on a lighter note, I am now 18! HURRAH! Although it's not all it's cracked up to be, I've only been out once since my birthday. Yet I've still managed to buy plenty of drink, legally. Bought some the other day and didn't even get ID'd, I was most disappointed. I have my ID and I want to use it! Anyways, I had a lovely birthday, I went out for a meal with my family, boyfriend and my closest friends which was fly. As per usual I will bombard you all with photos. Although this post isn't even that overdue (for me) it was only my birthday a couple of weeks ago! WOWZAS.
I have before and after photos but I doubt any of you would want to see blown up pictures of the inside of my mouth. (Let me know if you do ;) haha) My teeth are so nice now though :D although I do miss my metal :( my teeth look boring without it.
Anyway, I haven't really posted on here in months, so I shall do a little catch up of what's happened since New Year with photos...
It was Helena's birthday so we went out for a yummy curry then did this on the way home... Not sure why.
It was Katherine's 18th so we partied and ate crisps.
It was Ross' 18th so I got drunk and made a fool of myself. YEAH!
Bryony and I made cannelloni and nommed it all down straight after. Piggy's. Mmmmmmmmm :D
I made a huge cake. NOMMM.
Bryo and I went to Ranworth Broad last week and did some birdwatching. Not sure why we act like middle-aged people for the majority/all of the time.
Once again another uninspired post. But I felt like blogging :) but college is nearly over now and I finish my exams June 10th so after then I will return full steam ahead! I just fail at doing school work and... anything on top of that.
Also, it's my 18th birthday at the start of next month! YOSSSS. Can not wait. I've only been irritating everyone about it for eight months or so now. Hahaha. And it's the Royal Wedding soon, I think we're going to have a street party with a BBQ and ice cream :D hopefully the sun shines.
Have any of you guys and gals got anything planned?
This is why I haven't been posting. I'm spending all of my free time at the moment doing Textiles coursework. Gawww. Need to paint the yellow bits with nothing on them, stick some wire underneath the over skirt so it stands up more, then put the 'squids' on the top of it then drape material off of them. SO MUCH TO DO. AND A SECOND PIECE AS WELL. All by next Thursday. This dress has taken me foreverrr. And I have to do a dissertation still. Poop.
Got so much school work to do though. And I've actually been trying recently, so have hardly any free time. WAHHHH!! I will return eventually, I haven't abandoned you all I promise. Hahaaaa, I suck at keeping up with my blog though. I always go through spits and spurts of blogging loads, then never.
I intended to spend today doing my history coursework. However, as per usual, boredom set in before I even began so I ended up sitting on my backside perusing the internet for hours on end. I get annoyed with myself and tell myself I'm being a massive dong and I need to do my work, but I still don't do it.
Eventually I did get round to doing a bit, but still not much. I got confused and ended up giving up/telling myself I was confused and giving up instead of carrying on. WHY AM I SO LAZY? Gaw, I get so annoyed with myself. But I've got some done, which is better than none, riiiiight? I may do some art coursework after dinner - BANGERS AND MASH - just in case you were wondering. Mmmmm. Maybe a yorkshire pudding or two as well. Can't wait :)
Only had one lesson today, so I've had plenty of time to do something productive. I finished college at 10.30 this morning. It's nearly 6pm and I'm not entirely sure what I've spent my day doing.
I just noticed the slinky I won in a cracker at Christmas in the corner or my eye. Gonna be playing with that now. That will amuse me. Wheeeeeeeee.
But not all is bad because I have a Moomin hot-water bottle! YEEEEAH.
And I have a panda hat. Cooool. My love for this hat is far too strong. It's really stretched though because I like to use it as a mask...
One more thing, is it just me who does 'fringe washes'? I don't wash my hair every day but my fringe usually needs it so I wash my fringe and my fringe alone. The picture below depicts me just after I've washed my fringe. The puddle and the drips are from my fringe. Don't be so crude.
Pretty sure most colleges in the UK make you sit this ridiculous exam now. But what is the point?! None of my universities even accept General Studies and nor does it gain you any UCAS points. That's a whole two hours I will never ever get back. Yet I think I have another three of them to go, all of them being 90 minutes. Laaaaaame :(
Also, I walked into lesson half an hour late this morning because... I don't do mornings. My teacher didn't even notice, not sure how, but SCORE. But I did stay in and do an extra hour of work so I more than made up for it. I'm not a slacker I promise.
I have my interview for Norwich Uni soon and apparently they want an essay, why must it be to do with the subject I want to study? Why can't I give them one of my A* History essays? You wouldn't think I was capable of that with the way I write on here haha. Awkward/I can't be bothered. But I suppose if I finish my textiles dissertation on time I could use that.
I've come over all boring, currently telling you the things I tell my parents. But I have nothing to write about at the moment. I barely slept last night so my brain is not functioning. I forget the number of times I nearly fell asleep or just went DERP today when I didn't understand. derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp.
Anyway, so this post isn't completely irrelevant to the rest of my blog. I like this playsuit! (From Topshop of course.) No idea where or when I would wear it but mmmmmmmmm :)
And just out of interest, to those of you in the US. Do you find Barack Obama as amusing as we do over here? What a joker. I think about weird things that matter to no one else far too much.
Or do you see him as we probably see good/bad ol' David Cameron. Ooft ;) <- that was sarcastic. If that wasn't already clear.
Our prime minister is boring, and riding a bike.
He doesn't make jokes with his colleagues like Obama :(
I wonder if anyone living in the US ever heard Chris Moyles' song about Barack Obama? Pretty sure you get radio one over there!
Sorry if I've offended anyone with my comments over two mighty fine leaders... yeahhhh
I hope my crazed face didn't frighten you too much.
I have finally decided to do a post and apologise for my extended absense. Although, to be completely honest I haven't really felt like blogging recently. My granny/Granbo (taken from Ranbo ;) she was a sturdy Granny!) died just before Christmas and I was in my own little world for ages after. I just wanted to focus on spending time with family and friends rather than sitting on my laptop doing not very much at all. So that is my reason, I haven't just been lazy and slacking! But I'm okay now :)
I had a lovely Christmas, I hope you did too! My whole family came round and so did my boyfriend. I ate a copious amount of food and by the end of the day I felt sick. But it was oh so worth it. I got some lovely presents as well which I intend on sharing with you as soon as possible.
Another reason for my constant absence is the amount of work I have for college. I struggle getting my work done because I much prefer to distract myself with going out with friends and watching Come Dine With Me and Father Ted. I spent five hours writing an essay today, owwwww. That was painful. But it's done now. I have some coursework due for the end of the week and a dissertation for next week so I can't promise there'll be many posts this week. However, I do intend to whip myself into shape and blog more because I really do enjoy it, I'm just a bit lazy sometimes hahaha.
After Christmas I did the obligatory January sale shop and bought a ridiculous amount of clothes from Topshop and... no where else... I will show you them soon. I'm so pleased with my purchases! Although I do wish I had endless amounts of money. That would be super dooper. Aaaand I've got some new make-up and stuff which I hope will interest you!
Blimey, I haven't really written on my blog in aaaaaages. But this is all spurting out haha. I've been sat in silence most of today writing my essay so I guess I'm just craving for conversation. Plus the fact that I have a stupid 2 hour long general studies exam that none of my universities even accept tomorrow! I may just fall asleep and not do it, that would be clever.
OHOHOHOH! I got my offer from Lincoln which is good, but I don't really think I want to go there sooo yeah. But I have an interview at Norwich in a few weeks which I'm really hoping will go well, it's probably going to be my first choice.
ANYWAYS, if you've got this far congratulations. Pretty sure none of the above made sense.
Here's a photo of my brother, my cousin, mummy and me looking happy after a walk on the beach.
