I've got alarms set every ten minutes to try and keep me awake through the three MotoGP races ¬_¬
All my clothes are in my room, so, save a duvet cover, I'm going to be completely naked until Monday evening. Excellent.
I get fomo and end up staying up to watch stuff I'm too tired to appreciate, nightmare
Rider in the Moto3 race started celebrating after crossing the line thinking he'd won. There was still a lap to go, ended up ninth....
In the process of getting it all sorted. Feels good, although I managed to use the old one when talking to my cat last night haha. I've left it up to family members to decide what they want to call me though.
Its a pretty name :)
i feel like i had loads to drink last night but i didn't drink
i think the feeling i associated with drinking the night before must just be how i feel after going out regardless
decided i'm going to go to specsavers next week
desperate for an eye test
now that summer's over
but my eyes are so bad i use them all year round really
long sleeved v neck tshirt
for £25 incl delivery
thats like 1/2 what a pair of prescription sunglasses would cost
had eggs yesterday
wish i hadn't and i'd have had eggs today
it's raining here. Going to see '68 make noise in that London later.
which was great, im so sad that i could only go for one day. got my copy of a game of thrones signed by george martin too, it's the first time ive ever met an author i like (the second, third and fourth times were that day too). my favourite people on the panels i was able to attend http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connie_Willis on classic sf, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._David_Nordley on interplanetary artillery (there was a guy from nasa there too and this guy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordin_Kare, all in all it was really good), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seanan_McGuire who was talking about girls and science in books and idk loads more. genuinely gutted i could only go for one day :(
Worked 150 hours over the past fortnight and am exhausted. Just going to listen to football today and lie down.
now gym, footy, carribbean festival, writing a festival preview piece, early night.
mainly for the reason that i drank quite a lot of alcohol last night
gonna have breakfast and try to muster the be-arsed-ness to go for a walk
dissertations due in two weeks
haven't even looked at it for a week
Midday 2nd of sept for me.
Still doing data analysis.
12th September, 4pm.
Good luck both of you :(
also still doing data analysis (which I've barely started actually). I am almost definitely gonna ask for an extension of 3 days (the maximum you can get self-certifying, also considering going to the doctor and getting a bit more which I could actually justify cause I had a really bad ibs flare up a few weeks ago which set me back a few days...)
I want it to be over :(
Good luck, DD.
Doing a Master's is shit, in many ways. I am going to get so drunk when it's done.
The more I talk about it, the more I can procrastinate and NOT WRITE
(so various sociology and criminology modules with stats and qualitative methods). my dissertations entirely qual, looking at how welfare claimants. c o n s t r u c t t h e i r r. I g h t s
(^so it's not searchable)
ESRC funded sociology 1+3 student here too, bizarrely, doing my required research training...
Writing on the lived experience of time in contemporary society, with particular reference to French sociology of knowledge and Marxian phenomenologies of time.
that's so not an area I know about but sounds really interesting.
then remembered I drank every night for a week. - feeling peely wally :'(
I spend what money I earn at a glacial pace. To the economy, I am Kevin Shields.
so it's almost like I'm spending just under 400 pounds on a trailer, which is something that I find quite funny
i was going to go to a yoga class. I slept until 12 on and off. Eek.
Anyone else off to see Dead Kennedy's tonight? It's at *sigh* Koko.
Because I only had change and they don't (this was a few years ago, and hopefully they've come to their idiotic senses) accept 5p coins.
I don't like that venue anyway. But Brixton Academy is a bit of a nightmare too. They don't accept card and by the time you've gone to the cash machine and have come back you've missed half the set.
It's hot. There's a pool. There's a harbour. There are cafes, which contain Sardinian food. I'll be off the laptop pretty soon probably
I have to teach 5 or 6 hours per day
on the other hand, I'm getting paid for it
net idyll: strong
I'd love to go to Sardinia.
Haven't really seen it yet; gone straight from airport to hotel. Currently waiting for my fellow tutor to finish napping so we can grab lunch
do you need Roscoe & Marlon Officially Licensed Educational Aid Hand Puppets (TM)
have been thinking of looking into those teaching English abroad things as a means of doing something with my twenties
good kid but may understandably raise an eyebrow at the paces I'm gonna put him through during his holiday. glove puppets urgently required. send me 3 pairs, with a Doctor Zhivago bonus pack
shame it's totally illegal
but my fellow tutor sure is enjoying their nap!
who goes to teach on a small mediterranean island and becomes caught up in the increasingly dangerous metafiction of a master trickster.
i'll just say is beware wise old men and pretty young darlings.
lol quite a lot given my track record
I went to a fun wedding reception in a barn last night and had a nice walk through the YORKSHIRE MIST to get to the nearest train station this morning. The walk made the hangover totally disappear cos everything was so FRESH and BEAUTIFUL and now it's back again cos i'm in my flat
proper pissed it down yesterday
since 10am, waiting for the rain to go off so I can get this ten mile run under my belt. te sun keeps going out, but when I og outside it's raining through it. it's file miles to lunderston bay and then five back, so I odn't want to get soaked before I'm on the homeward stretch. Argh. I might see if I can find my mega cagoule and just man up and get out. I need to be on a train east in three hours so there's no time to be lost.
went to the local library and it was an absolute nightmare. i feel like the librarians aren't strict enough in telling people to just SHUT THE FUCK UP, which is kinda understandable as the library seems to be full of people that 'need help' but i worry that they're using their need of help to be loud and obnoxious which are two things that i do NOT WANT when i'm trying to teach myself non-euclidean geometry
got my first roast dinner in several months in like half an hour though :) :) :)
my hormones must be all over the place
how was the gallery
Going to order a burrito in a minute because burritos.
Knew it would.
I may have a spare free ticket (didn't pay even £2.50 for it).
is it to be another surprise three day weekend!?!?!
Got the following Friday off as well, so it'll be a nice three day week for me.
this has not been a productive day
despite the fact that I've made a fair amount of leeway on making some new music today.
but seems i'd rather watch cricket or football or indiana jones films than do them :/
she's not come to stay for about 10 years cos she had to look after my gdad.
completely different dynamic when someone's at your house rather than you being at theirs
he's nice and i like him but it's really annoying not being able to say whatever you want and lie about in your pajamas
it's well good isn't it. school should've been more like that
i was learning french for a few months but i stopped doing it when it got too hard, agreed that it seems like a great way to improve language skills though
wish there was a flemish version though. don't wanna end up pronouncing everything all dutch
not sure if it looks better or uses the space more
that they always talk about as being a bit of a dick can i be sad about this or am i simply acting like a 9 year old who never got invited to anyones house for tea
Chillin by myself in a wetherspoons hotel with a tuborg
The only thing that worried me about changing my name (especially in relation to my surname, which is pretty much exclusive to us) was how my sister would react. I tried to get hold of her but couldn't so just ended up sending her a message trying to explain the best I could, and I've felt horribly nervous since. She's just responded with the most incredibly touching message I've ever received.
I didn't expect it to be the case at all, but this whole experience has been life-affirming in so many ways. I was let down in so many ways as a teenager, and I allowed that to cloud the way I've considered my relationships with people since - I always try to justify anything I do to a ridiculous level even if it's not necessary to do so and pre-empt criticism or negative reactions. But everyone has been amazing and considerate. I think for the first time in my life I have real faith that there are lots of people in my life who want me to find happiness in my own way and will support that, even if they don't entirely understand.
In summary: People are, for the most part, fucking awesome. And whilst I'm sad it's taken me this long to realise that, I'm so glad it's a point I've arrived at in full belief.
what a wonderful thing to say
