Two Eureka Moments

February 19, 2013 § Leave a comment

Just a quick post (because I am about to watch X Men two and I am very excited) but I have had two Eureka moments [already] this week which I feel need to be shared. 

The first is something I have always battled with, that is my extreme wish to be a part a member of Hogwarts School of Witch Craft and Wizardry – not doing a law degree. However this momentous week beginning 18th February 2013 I have found the answer. I found the answer lurking deep within a friends bedroom …

The answer was a Harry Potter box set and BOOM eureka moment number one had began. So now when reading about the Unfair Contracting Terms Act or the problems of Judicial Review as an overarching system I can pretending to be living the pubescent magical journey with my favourite robed friends.

My second revelation will seem nothing compared to this mighty life changing realisation but one Eurekais hardly worth disrupting X-Men to post about.Image

Picture essentially says it all – I put my key on a necklace to avoid loosing it – and yes in typical sitcom comedy I did loose the necklace by the end of the day. 

Thats it Einstein I now crown myself. EUREKA 

Two ingenious Eureka moments.

Tea Appreciation Post

Tea. Tea. Tea. Tea. 

I am English hence I like tea. This is the assumption, but this is actually for me a stupid stereotypical reality. Tea brings people together I am a firm believer in this, as a member of well “My corner of Halls” the communal living area of studenty people tea is important. 

I have a love hate relationship with tea (could I sound any more dramatic) for example when in essay hell tea is a saviour I can knock on my next door neighbours room. (Incidentally this is the wonderful Ruth who got 4 varieties of tea AND a tea set for christmas) say one word “Tea?” and the kettle is on and I am feeling soothed from the various stresses of a 19 year olds sheltered life! 

OR. 

Tea can be the worst think in the world of academia, for exactly the same reason TEA IS PROCRASTINATION DEFINED! On my floor of 24 people minus a malaysian that doesn’t “get” tea and a person with an aversion to hot drinks we can all be drinking tea and forgetting our degrees within a matter of seconds. 

My final musings on tea concern the wonder that is peppermint tea. A tea I had not ventured into untill earlier this month when househunting stress had got to me and I considered this drastic step away from Yorkshire tea. Could this mystical green tea be as relaxing and refreshing as promised? 

YES. TRUST THE TEA. GRAB A MUG. 

Cider & Photos; Preparing For The Great Unveiling.

September 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

Over the summer I decided to embark on a journey of disposable camera’s and cider.

Essentially this involved two festivals, cider, many nights out, cider , a pub quiz, cider , a walk in a few fields and CIDER. I captured images of these events on 3.5 disposeable cameras and today is the fateful day when they are to be shown to the naked eye of human beings.

At 14 hundred hours I shall leave the house.

At 14:30 I shall arrive in town and hand these mystical photo containers into the poor unsuspecting staff at boots.

In a matter of hours (or possibly days dependant on price) I shall see the true effect of Cider on unsuspecting humans.

Tomorrow dependant on levels of nudity displayed by the subjects of the photos (don’t think there is any but this sounds far more dramatic) these photos shall be released to the internet.

Till tomorrow my Amigos.

Sorting Out HMV: A mission that has lasted all summer.

August 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

Throughout the summer HMV has had a display reading ‘ 90’s Classics’ not once this summer on my frequent and expensive visits have I seen the band that defines the 90’s for me there. I say defines the 90’s; being born in 93 I mean defines the 90’s with hindsight. Clearly if I were to sum up my original perception of classic ’90’s’ during the 90’s ,when I was at most 7, it would probably be Steps.

ANYWAY… neither steps nor Nirvana were represented on their poor display. So naturally throughout the summer I have sought to change that. sporadically 4 or 5 times this summer the staff of HMV have been greeted by this addition.

P.S Despite scouring HMV steps was not available. Clearly sold out.

Finally calmed down…

Calmed down from yesterdays scary university outburst. By realising that I was stupidly tired and everyone felt the same in this weird world where we are programmed to assume we are isolated in our fear.

The sale at work helped too, I suddenly decided at work (Hobbycraft) that I was going to learn to draw. I had romantic visions of drawing flowers in a studio. so I hit the sale and with the help of much used staff discount got this little lot …

Image

Infact I got this little lot for less than £4. My romantic vision was not a reality, my book mum hopefully got me in year 8 taught me to do this …

Image

I decided that the romantic vision was never going to come true and called it a night. Until i serendipitously found a can of fake value Red Bull in the fridge and my mission to become FULL ON ARTIST gained vigour.

An hour and a Dizraeli album later and I have drawn some less than bog standard animals and a jar that I don’t even want to put onto but I have to for the Diptic to work (Oh look how technology restrains she moans ironically)

Image

So the romantic visions of a Studio flat (not sure where I was planning on enchanting that from) and flowers didn’t happen but I had fun and offended all Jars, Giraffes and Cowish things world wide.

All in a days work.

PETRIFIED AND A WORRIER.

FUCK. SHIT. CRAP. FUCK. 

This is my current reaction. Up until that fateful day last Thursday I refused to let myself think about going to uni. I told myself it was incase I was disappointed when I didn’t get in. It was not. It was because I AM TERRIFIED. I am the girl that age 11 spent the entire summer holidays crying about the thought of going to high school. Now I ,to all intents and purposes, am moving out to a city where I don’t know a single human. 

I just received this email … 

 

Dear student

Your accommodation offer is now available.

And now I feel sick, sick beyond belief, this is happening and I don’t think I can do it. My favourite things in the world are rain on the roof, famous five audiobooks and PRETENDING I AM A 7. 

Now it’s all I can think about and I know I will probably feel sick with worry for the next 6 months.

The worst think being i’ve realised I don’t want to leave Hereford. And once you’ve discovered that you hit a wall of despair. 

 

“It’s all a learning curve” FUCK YOU.
