Portfolio Paperworks Done and Rocky Horror Show


Hey Everyone,

Well my portfolio paperwork is officially done thank goodness my main project is now completed but I’ll still have access to the social media pages that I created and the website if I need to make any changes, it’s great to finally have the paperwork submitted because at least now I can relax and focus on my blog posting which is very good and also promoting the posts via my twitter feed.

My birthday was lovely by the way and it all went very well and my sister was able to come in the end which was fantastic and it was lovely to see her and everybody else who came as well I even sent out thank you cards to people which was very cleansing because it meant I was giving something back to them.

I got some lovely presents as well mainly cheques but I also got jewellery as well which was lovely including some ear rings from my gran so I’ll have to bite the bullet and get my ears pierced I have always planned to do it but somethings either come up or I’ve chickened out of it.

Anyway moving on from my birthday celebrations,I’m going to see the Rocky Horror Show tomorrow night so that’s very exciting I’m not sure what to expect but I’m thinking it’ll be good though I’ll be going with a few friends and we’re planning to ‘dress up’ in some form I’ve got some idea of what I’m going to wear but I’ll have to see what I’ve got in my wardrobe but I’m sure I’ll be able to put something together I always do in the end.

We’ll be going to the half past eight performance as my friend who organised for us all to go could only get tickets for that performance time, I’ve paid her for the tickets already even though she said I didn’t have to but she’ll put the money towards the drinks fund so at that’s alright, she’s mainly badgering our other two friends for the ticket money as they hadn’t paid her the last time she’d just taken them to the theatre to see a show.

But at least I’ll be able to enjoy the show without worrying about deadlines for my portfolio paperwork I’ve also submitted my website, Facebook page and Twitter feed links for my project as I had to include them as evidence the main idea had been completed so that’s the main thing really it’s a weight off my mind as well.

Anyway I’m going to go for a walk now and then go and grab something to eat otherwise if I’m not careful it’ll be five o’clock and most of the day would have gone.






Busy Week Ahead and Blog Posts

Hey Everyone,

It’s Monday and the start of another busy week of blog posting for me so far I’ve managed to keep up the good work of posting blog entries I’ve uploaded fifteen so far so I’m very pleased with that I’m hoping to get it up to twenty at least so that before the easter holidays hit I’ve got a good number of posts uploaded for everyone to read.

Anyway the weekend wasn’t too bad I went over to my aunties house on Saturday which was lovely and it was nice to see some members of my family and a few of my cousins were there so that was lovely also major exciting news!! My cousin who recently got married over in Ireland is having twins with his wife and the other exciting thing is that the twins are going to be identical so they’re either going to have two boys or two girls personally I’m hoping that they have two girls because then I can buy lots of pink dresses for them or teddy bears but if they have two boys then I can still buy the teddy bears instead so it’s win win really.

Also my other cousin his wife is going to have they’re second child on the sixteenth of may I think so that’s the major thing at the moment we’re gearing up towards, well that and my twenty first birthday in may as well which is very exciting stuff I’m hopefully going to buy shoes at some point either this week or over the easter holidays so that I’ve got some lovely shoes that match my dress that I’m going to wear for my birthday.

I’ve been following Call the Midwife on Sunday nights recently and the final episode of the second series was aired last night it was a bit sad but the ending was happy I’m not going to tell you all what happens in case you haven’t watched the episode yet on BBC iPlayer, the good news is that it’s been commissioned for a third series which I can’t wait to see when it’s on and of course there’s going to be a special lighthearted episode of the show for comic relief which I’m also very excited to see.





Weekends Nearly Here and Conversations


Hey Everyone,

Well the weekends nearly here and like many of you I’m already thinking about how to make the most it before the Monday morning rush arrives, it’s so hard I think to plan out what to do over two days because one there are never enough hours in the day and two trying to cramp everything in over two days is virtually impossible.

Anyway two days or not I’m planning to make the most of it and hopefully spend time with some friends who I haven’t seen in ages so it’ll be nice to catch up and find out what’s been going on in their lives it’ll also be nice to actually have a conversation with them that’s if I can meet up with them face to face because I think nowadays even though technology means we can keep in touch with people the face to face conversation seems to have died a death because every things communicated by text message or email.

It’s strange really there are actually people who write books about the Art of Conversation but I think that must be really hard because you could only talk about the body language side of it rather than the actual verbal side of conversation because to talk about the verbal aspect you’d have to talk to someone face to face to get any material personally I think it’s better to actually pick something that people are interested in like Sex or Murder for example because at least you’d be able to get a good plot line going and the story would just progress from there, mind you I’ve read Fifty Shades of Grey and well in all honesty it really was awful and in places quite badly written as well, I know there are people who liked it but for me there really wasn’t anything erotic about that book.

Never mind maybe I’m just being cynical and there really was some deep meaning going on that I just didn’t pick up when I read the book, it’s not the only time that this happened to me the most recent occasion was when I went to see Life of Pi I didn’t get that film either maybe I’m just used to being spoon fed but then it can’t be that because if was surely I wouldn’t have understood anything about the film oh well the juries out on that one I suppose.

Happy Friday Everyone and have a lovely weekend whatever your plans are.





Errands and Blog posts


Hey Everyone,

Well it’s officially Friday and like myself many of you are planning what to do over the weekend lately though I’ve been running a lot of errands partly because there aren’t always enough hours in the day to complete my blog posts but also because I need to make sure that I stick to my keeping active throughout the day routine.

So far I’ve managed to keep it up and it’s paid off actually which is good but tonight I’ll be ordering a takeaway and  hopefully have a couple of friends over to watch a film that’s if myself or they remember that we arranged it last week, so unfortunately the eating sensibly part will go out the window tonight but that’s ok it’s Friday after all and once in while a little bit of indulgence doesn’t do you any harm everything in moderation that’s my mantra in life.

Anyway it’s very quite at the moment because I’m sitting in my lecture room typing this blog post and I’m the only one here!! it’s nice in away because I can actually get this post typed up but the uni really need to do something about attendance I’ve suggested to them in feedback surveys that they should have a ten to fifteen minute window for people to arrive to lecture and if they’re late after fifteen minutes for example then they have to wait until theres a break before they’re allowed into the lecture.

So far my feedback suggestions seem to have fallen on deaf ears or maybe they just don’t care as long as they’re getting the fees personally I’m more inclined to go with the second thing it’s sad really I know but I think thats how it is at the moment I’m hoping that when I go to drama school which I plan to do as soon as I’ve got a few short drama courses under my belt, that this trend won’t continue initially when I first applied to where I am at the moment I did think about doing a top up course so that I’d have another string to my bow but the attendance thing and the organisation in my current course being distinctly lacking it’s made up my mind for that I’m not going to stay here another year.


Which is really bad because it doesn’t say much for the course if people aren’t turning up at all I know there are people who work and that’s fine but if work is taking over your studies then it’s probably wiser to just focus on work rather than hold a place on a course that could be used by someone who will make the most of it.

But the good thing is that because it’s not very organised and the work load isn’t actually that big when you really break it down is that I’ve been able to keep this blog going and have more people reading it so the lack of organisation is the people who read my blog posts gain and it means that I can utilise my time effectively without sitting on Facebook or something like that.

Have a lovely weekend whatever your all planning to do,



Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners and Duvet Set Shopping

Hey Everyone!!

Well Februarys officially slowing down and the third day of spring is like a distant memory anyway aside from the weather stuff, last night I watched Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners on Channel4 I’ve been watching it for a little while now and it’s actually ok on balance you’d think that a show about people who can’t stop cleaning every five minutes would be really boring but it’s ended up growing on me (this is what winters reduced me to hibernation).

Anyway as a result I’ve suddenly had the urge to go and buy some new duvet sets partly because on the programme the bedding looks really nice after the people who hasn’t cleaned for years bedrooms have been throughly de-cluttered and it’s made me look at my bedding and think it looks really drab and a little bit out dated, (it’s official I’m getting old) I’m not looking for anything too drastic but maybe a duvet set that’s got a set pattern on it like hearts or something like that.

I’m going to move on now before I start talking about wanting to bake cakes or something along those lines (shock horror) anyhow my blog posting has been fairly consistent as I’ve put up ten posts so far and this one will be number eleven its nice to know that I’ve managed to keep my main new years resolution (god that seems such along time ago now) but then before you know it’ll be new years again scary thought and the really scary thing is that I’d have graduated from uni by then hopefully I’ll be working fingers crossed but then if my best friend how graduated recently from uni before me if she’s managed to get something then it can’t be that difficult.

I’ve got to head off now I’ve been really bad I’ve just been stuck inside pretty much all day but I did manage to go out over lunchtime which was good if I haven’t already said it I’d very quickly like to Thank all those fellow bloggers out there for liking and following my blog you have all been amazing.



Joys of Valentines Day

Hey Everyone

Well it’s been a little while since I put up a new blog post (damn my memory) anyway I’ve been very busy with ordering my dress for a start for my twenty first birthday it’s really nice and suits the occasion I showed it to my mum and she approved so that’s good but she’ll be the only one who’s seen it the rest of the people who have confirmed they’d like to come will have to wait I’m afraid and so will all of you I know I’m being a bit mean but I’ll upload a picture of the dress once the parties over.

In between coming up with new blog post ideas,I’ve also come across this new online magazine called Explore Pilates (it’s got a Facebook page as well) the whole idea of it is to target the eighteen to twenty five year old market and promote the exercise technique Pilates in the process it’s doing very well at the moment and has a few likes on it’s Facebook and WordPress accounts but if you my lovely readers could follow or like the posts that the online magazine puts up that would be really helpful, I’m already reading it myself when I can and it’s very good so check it out if you can.

Of course it’s Valentines Day today as many of you are probably aware of many of you I’m sure will be spending it with a loved one maybe a parent or close friend probably a girlfriend or boyfriend, as for myself though I’ll be curled up on the sofa probably watching Moulin Rouge which is probably the most romantic film to watch on Valentines Day plus it also fits the theme as the film is all about  the two main characters falling in love.


But whatever you decide to do my loyal followers have an amazing evening.



Joys of my crazy life

Hey Everyone

Well so far I’ve kept this up as I’m sure you’ve all discovered from my latest blog post anyway it’s back to reality for me of course I’m still working away just trying to keep on top of things and restraining myself from having a nervous breakdown you know the usual stuff.

I’ve been off line for a little bit purely because I’ve been coming up with new ideas for blog posts also I was meant to upload a blog post last night but my lovely cousin came round to spend some time with me and I’d not seen her for a while so unfortunately I forgot but that’s ok it happens to everyone I guess.

So far today I’ve managed to be fairly organised but I’ve got a lot on my mind at the moment I won’t go into too much but my sisters mum is basically on the way out as she’s got cancer and I’ve been very emotional recently because I really care about my sister and I want her to have lots of good times in her life and not be having to go through something like this.

I’m just hoping that when it does ‘happen’ that my sisters mum goes peacefully and that my sister doesn’t have to receive an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night saying that it’s ‘happened’ I know we’ll get through it’s just the wondering and waiting that’s the awful part for myself and for my sister.

Anyway let’s not dwell on that too much otherwise I’ll have to stop typing and come back to this post instead another thing that’s happening on a more positive note is I’m going to be twenty one in May which is very exciting but also very scary at the same time because I really want it to go well I’m sure it will but you never know with these things especially where families concerned.

I’m looking forward to it and my sister’s going to come which is nice also my aunt and uncle on my sister’s side will be coming as well so it’ll be nice to see them and catch up on everyones news of course because nowadays everyone get’s so caught up in things that no-one has time to actually pick up the phone and talk to people plus mostly every things online which is good for myself obviously but not for everyone.

Anyway that’s what’s been happening so far in my crazy life,



Still Blogging Away and Les Miserables Movie


Hey Everyone,

Well so far I’ve not done too badly with posting my blog entries so I’m very pleased with myself at least I’ve managed to maintain one of my new years resolutions, sadly on the walking front it’s kind of died off really not too much I mean I still like to go walking because it’s a nice break from writing blog entries.

Oh well at least the blog entry resolution has lasted it’s not been that easy though with the recent heavy snow my posting wained because I just didn’t feel I had anything interesting to say but at least that’s picked up as you can see from my latest blog entry.

Anyway enough of that I went to see the new Les Miserables movie at the cinema with two of my friends I have to say it was amazing I don’t normally say that about a lot of films but it really was amazing, the music for a start was just beautiful and the singing was good as well despite the fact very few of the actors in the film were trained singers.

The really cheesy thing was that I just could not stop crying and then my two friends started crying especially at the end of the film it was so sad (I won’t spoil the ending for you in case you haven’t seen it) but film fans who have will know exactly what I’m talking about.

It was nice to get out for a change and not just be stuck in I think that’s the effect of January it makes people and myself not really want to go out a lot unlike the summer when everyone seems to appear, that really amazes me suddenly thousands of people appear it makes me wonder where they all go when it’s winter.

I’m actually hoping to see a couple of friends that I haven’t seen for ages on Friday night even if we don’t go out it will still be lovely to see them as I haven’t been able to contact them for ages so it will be nice to catch up on what’s been happening with them.

I’ll be posting more entries very soon in the meantime keep following me on Twitter or follow me on Twitter to find out when the next blog entries going to be posted I’ll be tweeting about this one once I’ve posted it.




Meeting Irritations

Hey Everyone!!

Well I’ve kept up my promise to upload another blog post so fingers crossed I won’t forget and my blog posts don’t get uploaded, anyway the other day I was having a short meeting well I say meeting it was more of an informal discussion with a lecturer who shall remain nameless at my university where I’m studying my degree.

So it starts off fairly well and they seem to be grasping my second idea for my final portfolio which is to create a book publicity campaign for a fictional story that I had written and re-adjusted for a writing course that I did a few years ago.

Anyway I was clearly explaining to them how I was going to construct the idea and that I would like to explore the process of how publishers market books towards their target audiences.

At first they seemed to be on board with the idea but then they started talking about me making a documentary about the process of marketing a book but then of course I said that due to the equipment lenders being very difficult and restrictive about taking out cameras and returning them also the fact you have to rely on others to make sure the project is put together correctly, moreover the fact when you do have a problem with a larger project you often have to wait a long time for your course leader to reply to your email.

These factors combined would cause me unnecessary stress and anxiety as I clearly explained to them but they didn’t seem to take that on board even though I had explained to them that I wanted to put something into my portfolio or something that would contribute towards my portfolio that wouldn’t cause me unnecessary pressure, and that I would have a safety net in case there was a problem whether it was a general one or something more specifically related to the project.

It was just so frustrating because they didn’t seem to take anything that I was trying to say to them on board or even into consideration and the ironic thing was they said towards the end of the conversation (you can tell I’m getting bored of talking about this) they said I didn’t need to worry or get anxious because they were ‘here’ and that they understood because they’d read about me oh that’s great I feel so assured I’m a case study now am I?

That makes me feel so much better, I’m going to put the project together the way I want to anyway because I came up with the idea and there’s going to a lot more to it than just putting together a website and that’s it, because once I’ve started they’ll be a lot more going into the project.

Anyway I think to be on the safe side I might ask one of my friends to assist in helping me put together the project they wouldn’t have to do a lot just have a look at what I’d put together and say if I needed to make any improvements a bit like a marketing assistant if you will.

Hopefully that should prevent any interference from my lecturer but I’ll have to pick someone who doesn’t buy into all the crap that my lecturer always comes out with, plus they’ve got this really annoying habit of answering peoples queries with another question and I never really noticed that until yesterday.

In return I would help them with paperwork or marketing materials for their project so they wouldn’t just be doing me a favour I’d be helping them out as well.

I’ll have to get back to you once I’ve completed the project but hopefully I’ll remember to post another blog entry if I don’t forget of course.





New Year, Blogging Away.

Hey Everyone!!

Well it’s official 2013 has arrived which is very exciting of course everyones made their new years resolutions and hopefully going to keep them (well some of them) anyway I spent christmas with family of course it was nice to spend time with them and catch up on everyones news the most exciting being the my cousin’s wife is going to have another baby in May!! They’ve already got a daughter together so I’m thinking the next ones probably going to be a boy it’s still very exciting stuff though.

New year was pretty quiet as I just had a couple of people over and we had some nice food and we chatted it was lovely to catch up with everyone as well plus having a couple of glasses of champagne helped the conversations keep flowing.

I posted my first tweet of the new year today having been off line for ages particularly over the christmas and new year period I’ve got some more ideas for posts now all I have to do is try and remember to write them down if I forget then I know they won’t get posted.

This is also my first new blog post of the new year as well which is very exciting of course but it’s kind of scary as I’m not sure whether I’m going to have more people reading my blog but I’ve got a few readers already which is amazing and it means I don’t have to just rely on people that I know reading my blog posts.

Hopefully I’ll remember to upload some more blog posts.
