Like The Wheel

Day 10 - A picture of someone you see yourself marrying in the future.

To be honest this is a bit of a cringy one, I mean how can we know who'll we'll end up marrying? As I have to make I choice I'd say either a vet or a farmer. Hopefully I'll be a vet myself so will meet lots of science and animal people :) And as for the farmer thing, I would love to live on a farm! I always tell my parents that I'll marry a farmer :P

(Ignore the actual people in the pictures, it's more of a generalisation...)
My friends always tell me that when I'm older I'll be a vet, live on a farm and have ginger kids and animals running around the place. It doesn't sound that bad to me :)

It was my birthday on Thursday, I had a really great day and got some lovely presents :) I'll posts some pictures when I get a chance. The Belgian exchange people arrived on that day too. Mine's called Catherine and she's so nice! We've had a such a busy weekend entertaining them. We went out for a meal on Friday, got quite drunk and went to a bar to watch an Elvis impersonator... On Saturday they went to Oxford then we all got together in the evening. Sunday we went shopping and a few of us met up later on. We had a a good evening just playing cards and stuff! At the moment they're all at the cinema so we get some time on our own, which is nice :)

Anyway I'll stop rambling now, just thought I'd give you a last January update :D

Thanks for reading,

I Read it in the Paper

Day 09 - A picture of the person who has got you through the most.

Yup, it's Ffi again, she really is the best friend anyone could ask for, she has her faults but don't we all? She's pretty much the only person I could trust with anything, everyone needs someone like that.

I'm so excited!! It's my birthday tomorrow :D Today, to celebrate, 10 of us left school at midday to have a pub lunch. We ended up in Costa with food from Greggs, cos the pub was full, so it wasn't as interesting as we'd expected but we still had a good time :) Tomorrow the Belgium exchange people are arriving- mine's called Catherine, I can't wait to meet her! Oh and of course the new series of Skins is starting on E4! So much excitement I don't think I can cope :D

Hope you're all fine and dandy, I'm pretty happy myself :)

P.S. Title from a band called 'First Aid Kit'-nice, pretty music :)
Oh and also I've just realised how cringy this photo is...ahh well

Times and Places

Day 06 - A picture of somewhere you've been.
I went to Venice with my mum last summer, it was absolutely beautiful and we had a great time. I have so many lovely photos, I look through them every now and again and remember how amazing it was :)

Day 07 - A picture that shows your true self.
I don't really know why I chose this one, I suppose I just look kind of happy and relaxed which is how I am most of the time. We also had a great time that day just out in the garden taking photos, simple but fun :)

Day 08 - A picture that makes you laugh.
This is me with my three best friends on the day of our prom. We're all doing the 'LOL' face but Katie on the end has her hands backwards, love it :D

Hope you like the photos,

It Will Follow The Rain

Day 05 - A picture of your favourite memory.

I pretty much have all my favourite photos stuck on my bedroom wall, the one above is of my three best friends, taken in a photo booth in about year 8. I will admit it's not a specific memory, I wasn't even there! But it's more the memory of that time. We really were the best of friends and had the greatest time, we're still close but nothing compared to then.

I decided to take a few more pictures of photos on my wall, they're mostly pretty old but I thought they looked nice all put together :) So here's a picture of lots of good memories...
Hope you like them :)

Buried by the Daisies

Day 04 - A picture of your day.
I've had a long day which was made a good one by amazing friends, long talks and Starbucks.

I know this is a picture challenge but I thought I'd add a little extra :) If my day had a sound track, this would be it. I've just found this band (The Tallest Man on Earth) and they're actually brilliant. Have a listen I really think you'll like it :)

Hope you've all had a good day :)

Day 03 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show.

Love love love it! It's probably the only TV show that actually makes me laugh out loud every time. It's like the new friends, I just with they'd made more series.

The first post of my photo challenge :)

Day 01 - A picture of yourself with 10 facts.

Ok this is going to be harder than I thought, just finding a photo of myself was hard enough! I don't have many pictures of me on my own and it looks stupid if you crop people out! Some were too blurry or too small, and the rest either make me look like a freak or really posy! So I thought I'd give you a range and you can make your own minds up without me giving you a picture of how I want you to see me :) Although I did limit it to some slightly more sane ones...

And now for the facts...
1. I'm at Sixth Form doing Chemistry, Biology, Physics and French. It's bloody hard.

2. I have braces, you can probably tell by the photos and the occasional rant I have! I've had them since May '09 and cannot wait to get them off :)

3. I'm a really weird sleeper. I snore, I sleep talk, sleepwalk and I have the weirdest dreams, oh and hallucinations in the summer...

4. I'm a swimming teacher! Well teaching assistant but still, I've only been working there since September but I love it, the kids are so sweet and it's quite a nice job really :)

5. I'm really sentimental. I'm not too much of a hoarder but if something holds a memory it has to stay. For example when my parents considered getting a new front door I went pretty mental...

6. I'm an atheist, I accept religion but just don't believe in it.

7. I worry about things that have never or may never happen to me.

8. I think lives are like paths and you always get to a crossroad and have to choose which way to go, even the tiniest of choices makes a whole lot of difference but they're our decisions so we only have ourselves to blame.

9. I'm scared of spiders, needles and failure.

10. Whenever I'm upset I just look up a the sky and think how insignificant everything is. It's not that reassuring but it makes you wake up a bit and get on with it.

Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.
Ffi- friends since we were 3, brilliant :)

Thank you all for reading :)

Exams are over!!! Finally! I won't go on about them, it'll just stress me out. So I thought I'd try something new, I'm always looking for inspiration for my blog and now I have a bit more time to find it! I found this challenge on 'A Mermaid's Fashion Notebook' and thought it looked really fun.

Day 19 - A picture of a habit you wish you didn't have.
Day 20 - A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel.
Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget.
Day 22 - A picture of something you wish you were better at.
Day 23 - A picture of your favorite book.
Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change
Day 25 - A picture of you last year and how you've changed since then
Day 26 - A picture of something that means a lot to you.
Day 27 - A picture of yourself and a family member.
Day 28 - A picture of something you're afraid of.
Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile.
Day 30 - A picture of someone you miss.

I don't wanna make this post too long so I'll start the challenge on the next post (which I will do now to avoid doing any work etc.)

Gutted. Seriously there is no other way of describing it. I'm gonna sound like a pathetic over-dramatic twat when I say this. Today I went to the orthodontist hoping to get my braces off. Ok, not really hoping, I was counting on it, I was really excited, I've actually been waiting for this for ages. Anyway I got there and they looked ready to take them off- you know with all the stuff ready and asking about allergies and that. So I lay down on their stupid chair thing and put on their fucking annoying glasses. Just for him to prod around my mouth for a bit and then ask if I'd been wearing my elastics. I have, by the way, ALL THE FUCKING TIME. I told him this, only for him to poke around a bit more then say 'here's some more elastics, the sooner you do it properly the sooner you'll have them off' and hand me another pack.

I was so pissed off, I have seriously been waiting for this day for weeks. I felt like crying but I managed to hold it in on the way to the car, with my dad. Until his stupid comment 'Oh don't worry, you can work in Costa instead of being a vet' This is a tiny comment but considering I have the three science exams this week , that basically decide whether I can apply to be a vet or not, it was a sensitive subject -.- So I just cried, he thought it was his fault of course but he was just 'the straw that broke the camel's back' to use a cheesy phrase. So now I'm here just feeling shit and disappointed and upset and stupid that I'm crying over something so small and now I have to wait 2months to go back. Just GUTTED.

Roll Away Your Stone

I know this is a very late post but I've been revising for my exams that are next week, scary times :/ Anyway I promised a resolutions post and that is what you shall have :) My first post on this blog was last year, January 6th to be exact, and it was on my new year's resolutions.

Here's the picture of my list, not very clear but ahh well. It's still on my wall even on the 9th day of 2011 :/ not god I know but it would look bare without it and I don't have time t make a new one yet!

18. Eat chocolate much less- maybe this one was a bit too hard... X
19. Walk more- done and done
20. Make fish tank better- or give the fish away and take it to the tip? X
21. Go places- this one's kind of hard to avoid
22. Read fact and fiction- I haven't read enough but when I do it's fact :) X
23. Learn something everyday- that would be nice
24.Think- I've done plenty of thinking
25. Paint stuff- I did, that's in the past now
26. Get loads of work experience- yup, but need more!

28. Learn from mistakes- I'd like to think so :)
29. Be early- Hahaha no! X
