Sunshine and Errands

 

Hey Everyone,

Well it’s the middle of the week and the end of the week is nearly within sight on the plus side though the sunshines still here so fingers crossed it lasts for the weekend anyway today was ┬ájust a typical wednesday really as I’m sure it is for most of you but at least I got to have a lovely walk outside in the sunshine, before going to the supermarket to pick up a few bits so that was good there’s something about wednesdays and sundays, as well it’s as though they’ve been designed to be mundane and slower compared to the rest of the days in the week.

Never mind my drama groups back after the half term break tomorrow it’ll be lovely to see everyone plus it gives me something to look forward to, we’re working towards our informal showing which for myself anyway will have to be the twenty seventh of march as my mum has got someone to cover her class that night, but anyway I’m sure it’ll be fine either and the full show isn’t until July so if we don’t say have as many for the informal showing that won’t necessarily matter as we’re just performing in the same room where we do the class.

In case you were all wondering I haven’t heard anything from the bag and photography shop that’s just up the road from me I been checking my emails and phone but so far nothing I’ll give it a couple more days and if I still haven’t heard anything then I can just put it on my CV as experience if necessary but I have applied for a Marketing and PR assistant job with a company called the Charity People so hopefully something might come of that now I’ve refined my marketing and general CV’s I’ll let you all know either way.

Anyway another thing that happened to me today was that my cat managed somehow to lost two collars the second one I’d obviously not secured enough but the first collar I’m not sure how the cat managed to take that one off as I had secured the first one enough so that the cat wouldn’t be able to take it off so easily but never mind I’ve put another one on the cat for now so hopefully this one won’t get lost but you never know with animals.

Thanks for bearing with me and reading about my crazy random life I’ll be posting the link to this blog post onto my twitter feed as well.

Sunshines Here and Half Term Holidays

 

Hey Everyone,

Well it’s Tuesday, the middle of the week is nearly insight and the sunshines here at last in February!! Looks like springs not going to be too far behind us fingers crossed the summers nice it’ll be lovely to finally wear something summery rather than having to wear a coat every time I go out. Anyway last week for most of us it was half term mine was fairly busy but not just the right amount otherwise I get bored or easily distracted one of those two, I caught up family but it was just my auntie who lives down the road from me, she wanted me to help her with some restraining techniques that she had to learn for this course that she was doing at the school she teaches at so that was interesting.

Then at the weekend on Sunday I finally managed to hand in my CV to this shop up the road from me it’s a bag shop and photography studio but it’s very nice inside, my hairdresser very kindly mentioned me to the girl who runs the shop she seemed nice so hopefully that might come to something it’ll be part time but that’s fine it’s kind of what I’m looking for really, obviously if somethings more permanent then you can structure other things around it but I really don’t mind so fingers crossed she said she’d keep me in mind, so who knows really I’ll let you all know if I hear anything.

Moving slightly I’m kind of a little bit further in finding a dress for my sisters wedding I know what style I’m looking for but I’m not sure where I’m going to get the dress from I could order it online but then you have to wait a few days for it to come, but then again I’ve ordered a couple dresses from the same website that I got my 21st birthday dress from and both of them came relatively quickly, so I might order something from them but then again I’m sort of looking for something a little bit more grown up not too grown up, but just something that says ‘I’m a sophisticated young lady’ plus my sisters dads going to be giving her away so I’ll need to look particularly fantastic that day, then there’s my hair and make up as well but once I’ve found, ordered and got the dress I’ll be able to start thinking about possible make up looks.

 

I’m sure I’ll look fantastic but not too over the top I can’t up stage the bride of course that’s an unwritten rule when it comes to weddings upstaging the bride is a definite no but I have offered to help my sister should she need anything I might try and ring her actually and see how she’s getting on and whether I can help out at all with anything. Also the venue she’s having the wedding at is really nice so it should be a really lovely celebration plus it’ll be lovely to see her and my nephew as a page boy I’ll definitely have to get a picture of him.

Thanks again for bearing with me and reading about my crazy random life I’ll be posting this link onto my twitter feed for you to have a read of.

Weekends Nearly Here and Interview Update

 

Hey Everyone,

Well it’s officially Friday and of course the weekend is within sight plus there’s some sunshine around which is great just in case you were all wondering I unfortunately didn’t get the job in the supermarket that I was interviewed for on Monday but never mind I’ll contact their HR department for some feedback and I’ll take it from there.

Anyway I went to speak to the volunteer people that I mentioned in my previous post it was very disappointing I filled out the registration form, I was asked what I was interested in and I talked about my interest in theatre and marketing as possible volunteer avenues that was fine until they produced a ring binder file that was full of plastic folders containing their volunteer opportunities I had to sift through them and picked five as possibilities before they were photocopied and that was it I was annoyed because I could have just stayed at home and looked up volunteer opportunities on the internet.

I took the ones that I had home with me threw away the ones that weren’t any good and then contacted the ones that were possibilities so who knows I also spoke to someone else from the volunteer organisation again on the phone about the pathways project so hopefully I should get a phone call as my landline is now back up and running after ages and ages of emails and phone calls.

Never mind I’m just going to have a nice rest of the day and then order a pizza later and maybe watch a film I think so that’ll be nice at least there’s the rest of weekend to look forward to and my course as well on Sunday afternoon it’ll be nice to do something therapeutic well for me anyway at least I’ve got a funny story that I can laugh about later on.

 

Moving on very swiftly from all that I’ve been forming some ideas for my sisters wedding in July I can’t wait it’s going to be amazing also there’s my full performance with my drama group on Thursday evenings to look forward to as well it was lovely to see everyone last night and the session was great I think the informal showing at the end of march is going to quite good but we’ll have to see how it goes.

Thanks for bearing with me and continuing to read about my crazy random life I’m going to head off now otherwise I’ll be sitting here all day and before I know it it’ll be five o’clock.

Weekends Nearly Arrived

 

Hey Everyone,

Well Fridays here again and the weekends just around the corner and of course the summer break is coming to an end and of course the rush to work, school or college starts up again but at least the dark mornings don’t start until January so in the meantime theres christmas to look forward to which is nice so it’s not all bad.

Of course you all know what I’ll be getting up to during september so I’m looking forward to the signing lesson most of all because it’s something that I’ve never done before well not with a professional vocal coach but it should be exciting but I’ll also be taking part in a theatre showcase which I did before with my cousin at the end of september so that’s something new for you.

It should be fine and I’ll get to see my cousin which will be nice as I don’t get to see her that often I know during the summer that things get a bit hectic for her but I haven’t heard from her recently because I’d text her about going to my aunt and uncles apartment in west gate it turned out that she’d lost her phone so she was only able to communicate through Facebook but then apparently she doesn’t have a computer at her flat but then she should have a laptop though I’ll hear from her soon though sometimes you need to have a little bit of faith in people that’s always been my outlook.

Another thing that’s happened is my auntie who’s really irritating has now joined Facebook and she sent me a friend request of course I didn’t accept it I know what your all thinking but the woman is awful and only thinks about herself she’s so tight she doesn’t even travel anyway without trying to get a lift off one of my other relatives or going the cheapest way possible like when my cousin’s wife was having her twins my auntie decided to take the train and then a boat to Ireland which of course took her so long that she actually missed the birth but then that was probably a good thing really you wouldn’t want to see her if you weren’t looking half decent.

Anyway I’m going to eat something and then take a walk whilst the sunshine lasts then I’m hoping to meet up with some friends later hopefully one of them will get back to me otherwise I think I’ll watch a nice film and have takeaway.

Birthday Plans and Portfolio’s Underway

 

Hey Everyone,

Well it’s nearly half way through the week and the nights are getting a lot lighter and the days are getting a lot longer as well which is a good thing I think because at least theres a few more hours in the day at least for now.

I’ve been working away on my main portfolio idea for university so I’ve not had the chance to write a blog post today the website’s been officially set up along with the Facebook page and Twitter feed as well so I’m a lot happier now because now I’ve actually got everything up and running the sooner I’ll be able to finish my main project and mock up the contributing projects for my portfolio.

My birthday is on Sunday this weekend so I’m very excited about that I’m hoping nothing goes wrong but I’m sure it’ll be fine the nicest thing will be that I can catch up with all my guests who’ll be attending on the day I’ve now got about twenty five/twenty six coming now which is good really because I don’t always have a lot of luck with family occasions because there’s either a drama or someone gets ill on the day or even the day before.

Anyway my half sister still wants to come to my birthday which I’m very pleased about because I know she’s going through a very difficult time at the moment because her mum is unfortunately going to pass away within the next few days fingers crossed for her sake it’s before my birthday because I know she really does want to come and celebrate with me which is fantastic and it’ll be lovely to see my nephew as well.

I have to scoot off now I’m afraid because I’ve got to have my photo taken, thank goodness I remembered to put some make up on today lool!! I’ll be posting some more blog posts very soon.

Back to the Grindstone and Sunshine’s here

 

Hey Everyone,

Well for most of you including myself the Easter holidays are officially over but it’s not all bad at least the sunshine’s made an appearance and it’s getting lighter in the evenings for a lot longer now, I noticed that yesterday evening it was I think eight pm before it started to get dark. I’ve been coming up with more blog post ideas as per usual including this one obviously I’ve managed to put up seventeen so far so I’m not doing too badly once I get into the twenties figures then I’ll know I’m getting there.

I’ve also been designing mock ups for my final portfolio project as well as writing out an outline for the major project report unit at my university it’s going alright so far now that I’ve created the mock ups for my portfolio project I can start including the screen shots that I’ve taken into the written notes so that it shows how the process for the main project in my portfolio has been conducted.

Once the written notes are near to or I’m halfway through completing them then I can start putting the website together which isn’t the main issue it’s just whether it’ll accept the short form that I want to put up onto the homepage will upload properly hopefully it will but I can always ask for assistance if I’m having trouble.

Then of course there’s the contributing projects that I’ll have to put together but again once the main one is near to completion then hopefully putting the other projects together should be fairly straight forward they range from creating a book cover for a story that I’d written to an interactive advertising perfume campaign which is basically re-branding an existing or made up perfume brand and creating a marketing campaign around it.

Anyway enough about boring old work (yawn) I’m planning to hopefully go and see the Woman in Black Theatre Show with my cousin at this local theatre near where I live I’ve text her about so hopefully she’ll get back to me I know she will but it’s hard I think especially when you get so consumed by work and other things I can definitely relate to that because I get very blinkered by uni stuff and other things as well.

My birthday plans are officially underway so that’s very exciting I’m just trying to sort out when I can get my hair done I’m going to hopefully have it coloured and then have hair extensions so fingers crossed that it all goes to plan, it’ll be nice to see my sister there I know she’s looking forward to it and it’s a positive thing for her to look forward to as she’s really going through the mill with her mum but it’ll be nice for her to meet the other side of my family.

I’m just praying that nobody has any arguments not on my sister’s side but on my immediate family side because there is a history of arguments at family get togethers when our family has gone away somewhere or even gone to a hotel for the day (I think that happened I’m not sure), I think I’ll have to sit them all down or most of them down and get them to pass it onto the others, and say that I want everyone to be social able and mingle with the other members of my family and not to leave anyone out either because that’s the worst thing when somebody get’s stuck in a corner somewhere.

But to be honest I think I’ll say that on the day ┬ábecause it’ll make a little bit more sense because I know I get very random thoughts in my head that make sense to an extent but not all the time, anyway I’m sure that everyone will be on their best behaviour on the day so that’s good.

I’ll be posting some more blog entries soon but I really must go to lunch now otherwise I’ll be sitting here all day and then before I know it’ll be five o’clock lool!!.
