My life and me

May. 30th, 2009 03:30 pm Rant

I need to post because I need to vent and this is the only place where those involved won't see. 4 of my boy-mates are off to Turkey tomorrow. Lad's holiday. They didn't even bother to ask Matthew if he'd like to come along. I am angry on his behalf.
Now the afore mentioned boys are acting pissy with me and Matthew because Matthew made a couple of jokey comments about what time the flight was etc.
Because I was not pleased with them anyway, mainly because it means they won't be able to come to my 21st and also because of the way they have treated Matthew, I got really angry when I found out via Twitter that everyone had had a get-together without bothering to get in touch with me or Matthew which I don't think is very fair practice from people who are meant to be your mates.
Sorry about the rant, I just needed to get it off my chest. Hopefully, I can start calming down over it now!

Just realised I have sort of abandoned this thing. Oh well.
I think the main reason is the fact that I have been so busy with trying to revise and getting the introduction to my dissertation finished. Weird thing is, I feel like I have been dead busy but I don't really see how.
I should have been getting another dissertation chapter done for Monday but I have completely forgotten about it. More important things like playing in the snow with Yvette and Matthew have been getting in the way.
So I am going to spend around 6 hours in the library tomorrow. That should be thrilling. Also I am meant to be going out with the fieldwork gang tomorrow night, but I don't fancy starting the night watching everyone playing drinking games.
Basically, I am going to make sure I am busy as I am really determined to do well this semester so that's where I'll be if I disappear from here again.
Well, I had better get an early night; early start tomorrow!

I went to see the Wombats with Emma. In the brand spanking new arena.
We had amazing seats and it was just excellent!
The Wombats themselves were ace (I really not to stop overusing that word) and it was great seeing a Liverpool band in their home town. Made me feel proud to be Scouse.
Anyway, the best surprise of the night came when the second support act came on stage. The second support act? Was Alphabeat! It was the best gig in ages!

This is only short as Matthew is trying to chivy me along as we are going to Nick's to watch Edward Scissorhands apparently.

So I am in the library trying to do work on an essay about whether UNESCO World Heritage site status provides any real protection against damage or destruction but I am bored (and you can probably tell why. UNESCO is not that thrilling).
I am living back home but I am still having to pay rent on house of evil because there is no one who needs a room. Never mind.
Had a really cool few days. Saw How to Lose Friends and Alienate People the other week when Fi came home (yay!) which wasn't bad. We also had breakfast in Kinsellas which was delicious.
Me and Matthew took Philip to see the lantern parade in Sefton Park for Hallowe'en and we're going tonight for fireworks.
We also got a new (well, new to us) car. A Citroen BX. I personally think its a bit on the ugly side but Matthew loves playing with the adjustable suspension. We took the car up to Blackpool on Sunday to see the last night of the Illuminations. That was cool. We ate chips and doughnuts and bought a buttload of rock.
So yeah, that has been my life. Along with the odd pub quiz and general night outs with Yvette, Sam, Susie and Danny.
And also the result of a certain election is also making me quite gleeful.

Sep. 24th, 2008 10:56 pm House rant...

Ok. I know that while no one had moved in, me and Matthew kinda took over the house and had the dog to stay and all but NO ONE ELSE HAD MOVED IN. Before peeps arrived and got themselves settled, Matthew and Bess and all the associated mess were out. But I still got bitched at to make sure that Bess never comes here (fair enough, I knew this already and had made this known to Matthew) and that Matthew couldn't be at the house too much (ditto).
And Stacey had a snap at me about Matthew being 'rude' and 'lying to her face'. Right in front of everybody and not even in the context of the house meeting. Even though Matthew had been very obviously joking around.
And Amber and Kayleigh prepared lunch yesterday. For themselves, Adam and Stacey. But didn't bother asking me if I would like anything.
All in all, I feel as if I was only asked to move in with them to make up the numbers for the house and as a result, I was given the crappiest room and I am feeling constantly left out by them not least because they have all known each other since first year and have lived together before. They are so cliquey, it is unbelievable.
I am so fed up with this house and everyone has only been living here for 3 days. Good thing, Mum is fine if I decide to move back in, which may be a real possibiltity...

So what's been going on since God knows when?
I moved into my new house!! With my important things like my peace lily and Bjorn the bear,it is finally starting to feel a bit more homely than some student place. I went to Ikea with the parents on Tuesday and we put up my new bookcase and bedside table tonight.
I have been walking our darling Bessie everyday even when the weather has been crap (so...everyday). Unfortunately, this resulted in me slipping over onto my arse in my wellies today. Not very graceful...
I am now addicted to Solitaire. Seriously, I was on there for 4 hours the other night.
Emma is going to the Arena to book our Wombats tickets tomorrow!!! Wheeee!!!
I believe I managed to photograph every Superlambanana on the Trail I was physically able to and photos shall be on Facebook soon.
What else? Oh yeah, there's a giant mechanical spider hanging off the side of a building in town.

There is no way I am sleeping tonight.

Jul. 12th, 2008 10:44 pm I'M ALIVE!!!!

Barely. 3 weeks of back-breaking physical labour (or archaeological excavation) really takes it out of you.
I have found about 48264 pieces of pottery, a bit of iron slag and crapped up bits of bone. I suck at Cut and Fill sheets, I enjoy drawing and planning can fuck off and die.
Despite all that crap, I am having fun. Sam and I have been watching DVDs when we haven't been out with everyone to a pub quiz.
Matthew has visited every weekend. We went to Nottingham castle last week and bought a Robin Hood hat and we were taken to Lincoln today so we had a look around the castle there and bought a Maid Marian circlet. Fun times.
Also, we bought an interwebby cable thingy today so I have tinternet to amuse myself.
Only 6 more sleeps until I go home!!!

May. 12th, 2008 08:20 pm Dissertation Panic Over... sort of.

I emailed Gina and as I suspected she is full up of people to supervise so she suggested I get in contact with Matthew Fitzjohn who I have only met for about 15 minutes in my whole two years. He rang round loads of people to sort a clash out for me and Sam so I hope he is going to be a good dissertation supervisor.

In other news, Death and burial exam went all right today. Not great, just ok. I have Osteoarchaeology on Wednesday and because of my rubbish organisational skills, I only really have one whole day to revise. That should be a barrel of laughs.

Can't wait for the party on Friday or the party on Saturday. And we are going to see the house on Friday morning so I'm well excited for the weekend. Just have to survive revising, dissertation and my last exam...

I am having a panic attack.
Dissertation proposals have to be in at 2 on Monday. I still don't know what I am doing, although it may be something to do with Greek art.
So I tried to send an email to Greek art woman to ask if she could supervise me (which so totally isn't going to be able to do, btw) and my fucking email isn't letting me send emails!!!

*has heart attack, dies, but at least doesn't have to worry about dissertations*
