Current Music: The library hummm....
Okay, so for the second time in the past nine months my computer crashed again.... sooo not cool. So now I'm sitting in the Library, writing essays and well, getting some Uni work done... it's really not that fun. I've written about 1000 words today, and I don't know how many more I'm going to be able to do before I explode.... all I really want right now, is for our stupid bar to be open so I can go and play a game of pool... and take a bit of a break, then come back and work some more... though I think I'm going to go get lunch now, and then come back and start writing again....

I want to be doing something right now, but I feel like poo and I can't stop coughing.

I have come to realize that I say "mate" way more than necessary....

I went food shopping today... Yummy for me....

I really need to sit down and do some uni work.... Like write my three critiques, and prepare my journal, as well as develop pictures.... when I finish all that, I'm pretty well done for summer, other than one exam I have. I really really need to do all this... I am thinking that Friday, I'm going to spend the day writing stuff... Tomorrow I'm going to finish taking the pictures.... and then the world will be a happy place.... If I can get part of everything done, that will be good.

Okay, now to go play on MySpace..... ah.... how bored does one have to be.....

Current Music: The fan in the room next door
I am knackered.... this weekend was a bank holiday.... so nothing goes on on Monday, and everyone is out in town. I managed to wear myself out, walking around, and hanging out with too many mates.... so now all I want to do is sleep.... but alas, I have one more class to go to today.

As my time in Europe comes to an end, I am beginning to realize all these things I love and will miss.

-My Mates
-The horrible accent which I have picked up
-All the words they use, and I do to (I swear, no one will know what I am talking about most the time)
-The view out my bedroom window
-Taking the train everywhere
-Walking along the seafront
-Late nights watching bad movies
-The city centre...and the north and south lanes (there are some wicked stores in that area)
-London being less than an hour away
-Football all the time
-Pool (it's different than American Pool)

And that's just listing a few....

But this is probably the most memorable experience I've ever had, and I will never forget it....

My hair is getting really long.... okay so for me, I'm the person that always has short hair, kinda a punky style, but now it's nearly shoulder length, and getting longer. I kinda like it long, maybe I'll leave it long for a while.

For anyone that really cares, I've posted most of my Europe pictures online at www.photos.yahoo.com/skwid_kidd

When it opens there are just thumbnails, but if you actually click on the picture and then go through them that way, you can see what they all are, I've written a comment for most of them.

I am going dancing tonight, I'm excited, I love going to the club and dancing.... it almost makes me feel like I do when I swing dance.... okay so hip-hop and swing... not even similar, but it's just the fun of dancing. Sometimes I wonder if maybe I should have gone into dancing and pursued that rather than other things, but life will go on. But I created this bad ass playlist to listen to before I go out so I'm all pumped... I've only made it through the first few songs.... but I'm still on the more mellow stuff.... hopefully I'll get in the booty shaking mode soon.

I only have 6 and 1/2 weeks left here then I'm back in America. I suppose I'm both excited and sad. I love it over here, I love everything about it.... but then there are some things that I miss, like my job, swing dancing, and actually studying for my major!! But when I come home I'm gonna miss the sea, the pier, the beachfront, the shopping, the city centre, the theatre.... the list continues.... main thing I won't miss is the COST! it's soooo bloody expensive over here.

I think i'm going to go paint my nails now... that will keep my occupied for 45 minutes... maybe even my toes.... oooh i see fun ahead

Why do I never have anything to do anymore.... Oh yeah, I don't have a job, I don't have any money.... and I arranged my school schedule to only be two days a week so I could get a job.... so now I'm left with nothing.

I only have 7 weeks left in England... I wish it were more, I know that sounds stupid cause I'm so bored... but if I were here longer I would have a job, and then I would have money....and I could do so much more...

Right now I'm looking into prices to go on a holiday this spring... or maybe fall.... not a long one... and who knows to where....

I am offically addicted to the OC... which is horrible... but I love it...

I sleep too much during the day, causing me problems when I try to sleep at night.... but life will continue on as normal, and I will continue to have a horrible sleeping pattern

I WANT chocolate... in fact I NEED chocolate.... but alas it is Sunday, and all the shops are closed.... so none for me :( if only I lived closer to town so I could find a shop open.... but living out of town a bit proves that in the time that it would take me to take the bus to town, find a store, and take the bus home... I could have read an entire novel....(if only the bus didn't stop so much, it'd only take a few minutes... )

Current Music: long way to go gwen stefani
I went to town and picked up some stuff for later tonight... which was fun. But I hurried back home cause I thought I was gonna be playing football with my friends at half past 2... and I just got a text about 2 minutes ago...( we are supposed to be playing right now....) saying that we aren't going to be playing this week!! do you think you could let me know a little earlier.... otherwise I would have just chilled in town a bit longer... instead I had to run to catch the train home.

I suppose it all works out for the best though.... I am going to go out tonight, and go clubbing, so I have a bit more time to get ready, cause I want to look really hot tonight...

I went out and conformed to english going out standards... I bought a short jean skirt... It's really cute, and I love it... but when I moved here I said I would never start dressing like them.... and now I am. Oh well, life will go on.....

I am going to take pictures tonight... and i'll post them online... so that you can all see my state of being....

alright being dragged to play video games....

Alright, I am going food shopping tomorrow, and I think I know pretty well what I want to get, I'm going to have sooo much yummy food (unfortunately it'll cost a lot, and go fast) but hey, i've been eating pasta for the past two weeks, time to treat myself a little bit.... Anyways, I think I'm going to get

Carbonera Sauce
Curry Sauce
Prawns (for prawn curry)
Chicken (for everything)
Wraps (for a chicken wrap)

Can you think of anything else that would be good to get and make... I really want to have some good food this week, it's been awhile since I've eaten properly

I am doing laundry tonight.... so much effort when you actually have to hang everything to dry... I just want a dryer again. Oh well, my clothes will be clean and I can go out in public without smelling.

I'm babysitting tonight, my mate has a bathtub, I'm excited, I haven't had a bath in such a long time... I think it's since last summer... YAY FOR BATHS!!

when you clean something such as a kitchen for a group of seven people, you expect to be appriciated. You hope for maybe a thank you for the hours of scrubbing you put into cleaning someone else's mess off the stove, and for doing the pile of dishes only God knows how long have been sitting in the sink. I myself have been away from home for a week, on holiday in Norway, and I come home to find the kitchen in shambles. There is dirty garbage all over the counter as well as dishes lining the room. I also noticed that quite a few dishes were missing, which only means that they are dirty hiding in someone's room. I however still need to cook and eat, and the state the kitchen is in don't want to touch anything, so after a day, I go grab my rubber gloves and get to work. I scrub the stove and counters clean, do all of the dishes and remove all the nasty things from the sink. But no one will even appriciate it. The girls I live with are all tidy, and will think that the kitchen was like that the whole time they were gone, while the boys will just dirty it again and expect someone to clean it for them. Is it really that hard to do the few dishes you dirty right after you eat??

As I said earlier, I just got back from holiday. I went up to London for a day to visit my ex, which was nice, but why did he have to look so good?? I couldn't help but notice how nice he looked, however, when I was talking to him I remembered why we weren't together anymore.... but that doesn't change the fact that he looked good.

I then visited Norway, and my family over there.... imagine spending a week with people you barely know other that they are from the same family as you, and not being able to understand anything that they say... It's not the greatest of experiences... but none the less I had fun, I went skiing, went in a boat out on the sea, and just lounged around, I do have to say it was better than sitting in my flat all by myself for a week.

I think I'm going to go to bed now...
