Ahhh, it feels good to be back.


Sorry for that moment of excitement...considering I finished on Friday, I should've gotten over that little fact by now :p But yes, I haven't been able to update because I've not had the 'net at my house in Sheffield for the past THREE WEEKS! Grrrr.

Actually, that is a lie. It's been working for some people, but well...not for me. I'm guessing this is partly due to me being quite high up in the attic, partly because people have been messing about/creating a new password for it to work...and also, taking away the router from the middle floor and moving it further away from the landing- causing me to get excited at the prospect that it might work and then flounder aboout frustratingly, when it doesn't.

I have passed my time and come online at the IC (that big building/library with loads of computers) which has helped me to pass the time somewhat. I have managed to do my work and print it off on these computers, otherwise I would've been fucked. Anyway...I've been using those computers for 'net access, etc.

I got soooo wasted on Thursday night, when I went out to Plug with my housemates as part of the last night out in second year. I kinda had to go would've been wrong if I didn't. So I got absolutely bladdered and forgot the dangers of mixing drinks! Much to my discovery the next day...when I was being sick no end, inbetween trying to finish off and hand in my final assessment piece- my Quark page. That was a heinous morning. But, I recovered shortly after and all was well again. Once I handed in the final part of my JNL208 assessment, I heaved a sigh of relief, in knowing that I have NO WORK at all now until September. *Phew*.

I bought a book called 'Eating and why it ethically matters' (or something to that effect) by Peter Singer and Jim Mason. It's pretty interesting and I read a lot of it whilst 'sunbathing' on the steps of City Hall. Whilst I had an amazing lunch (loads of fresh food I thought to ease the hangover), so I got an avocado and spinach salad sandwich, with a bag of sweet potato vegetable crisps. Plus a bottle of freshly squeezed orange juice and carrot puree. Mmmm. All from M&S. Yum.

I bought my two housemates a little going away gift each since I won't ever see them again (they're going abroad next year). Then I went for a nap. Started packing...and oh, after dinner, I bought a tub of Ben and Jerry's cookie dough and ate that in front of the telly all night, watching TV with my housemates. We watched Big Brother and Ugly Betty - was pretty fun!!! Most of my packing had been done by that point, but I decided to do some more, just incase I had forgotten anything, haha. Then I slept...

Woke up about 7am yesterday morning. Got myself up and ready, packed all my things, ate breakfast, etc. The first person I said goodbye to that morning was Dr Laura, as she was up about the same time as me for breakfast. I took all my things downstairs to the bottom floor...and then waited for my Dad to arrive. He came about 9.15am or something like that. It didn't take long to put everything in the car and then- I almost forgot to buy some Vegebangers, but I bought some and then we were on our way, after I'd said goodbye to all of my housemates.

It's quite sad leaving, but I'm more excited about being at home to be honest, just because it means I get to do fuck all, lounge about and GET 14 WEEKS OFF! (bar a week of work experience, I guess...) hmmm. Some good times I feel, are in store this summer...and I can't wait!!!

I got home yesterday, about 11/11.30am. Thereby, I unpacked a little, showered and rushed around before going to Gary's house for 1.30. He hadn't come home from work yet, so I waited around talking to his little sister Molly and his Mum. Then we were in a bit of a rush...we got the bus to Liverpool, to buy our Download tickets!!! WE'VE FINALLY GOT THEM. YAYYYYY.

...and we're going to Download next Wednesday. (That's in 3 days!) Arrrghh.

Soooo sooo excitable right now.

We watched around half of the 'Fantastic Four' last night. It looked good, but due to tiredness/takeaway and various interruptions, I guess we didn't enjoy it as much as we could've done, so we turned it off :( I was really enjoying it too. More than I thought I would, at first.

Today, I am lounging about in bed. I had some strange dreams about smoking pot :/ weird. As I've never smoked, let alone pot! haha.

The plan for today is to get the rest of the things I will need for Download...a rolling mat, some waterproofs, might get a new pair of trainers...but I already have some, so will probably just use those to be honest (even though they're pink- I got them for cheap, damn it!) I'm unsure as to how the weather will be next I'm guessing I will just take a variety of clothes (but not too many), just enough to be sure. Like I'm taking some shorts and a bikini top incase it gets hot (which it may well do, looking at yesterday's almost perfect weather). Some jeans or some similar type pants, a skirt, a couple of T-shirts and a jacket/hoody type top. Plus the obvious change of underwear otherwise that would be icky :p hehe.

So that's what I'm going to try to do today. Other than that, not much. So I'm going to go now and actually live it. Ooh think I'm having a roast dinner at Wetherspoons later. The last time I tried it there was AMAZING. I had butternut squash, roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings, brocolli, carrots, gravy...stuffing...mmmmm. Was well fit and yummy. Bit pricy, but worth it, definitely.

Right I am off.
