I can do this! I am worth something!
I’ve reached my limit and am sick of being a pushover. I’m finally standing up for myself. I think hanging around with Americans for a month has helped!
I went to see Wicked at the Apollo Victoria in London’s West End while down there to get a Russian work visa on 4th August 2011.

I’ve now started my new job (as of 2/9/2009) as an English language assistant in an adult education centre in Amqui, Quebec! Go me!
Went up to the top on 24/08/08 at about 11pm and the view was spectacular. Night is definitely the best time to go, when the whole of New York is lit up. Magic.
Brilliant show! Great! Amazing! Broadway’s got a great atmosphere and I even got a ride back from the hotel on a rickshaw!
I’ve wanted to see this show ever since it started in the West End, but never got around to going down to London to see it. I saw it on Broadway on 23/08/08 and thought it was fabulous! Even better than expected, I was lost for words. A beautiful, emotional piece of theatre that everyone should see. Brilliant!
First impression of New York – it’s big! First stepped out of the subway and looked up at the buildings around me and nearly fell over backwards. It’s noisy, it’s busy, but I loved it! I can’t wait to go back there again! I’m not busy next summer….
I now live in Quebec!!!! Only been here a day, but loving it so far. Looking good for my future plans to stay here…
Been thinking about this and it’s a bit pointless really. When is it ever going to be of any practical use? I have better things to use my memory for! I have little enough of it as it is…
This is pointless. I’ve been beating myself up for too many years about things I can’t change. I’ve just graduated and I have a new life in Canada lined up, so I’m making a fresh start and accepting the things I don’t like about myself. I’m me, and that’s never going to change. I just have to get on with life. Life’s what you make it and if I sit around moping I’ll just be wasting it. I’m not prepared to do that.
I’ve finally graduated! Completed on 27th June 2008, I now have an M.A.(Hons) French & German (with Integrated Year Abroad) from the University of St Andrews! Go me! Time to get on with the rest of my life.
Lost interest in doing this, it’s a bit pointless really.
Now that I’ve left uni, I live far too far away to bother going, so I’m giving up.
Went to a protest today for affordable accommodation in St Andrews. The university want to cut the number of cheap beds in half and build posh accommodation that only rich students can afford. They’re trying to exclude poorer students by making it impossible to live here. My first protest, but it was a huge amount of fun!
This show was amazing. I’ve been meaning to go and see it for ages, but couldn’t bring myself to go all the way down to London. Missed it in Edinburgh when it was here a few years ago, and couldn’t get tickets for it when I was in Vienna. Finally went to see it at the weekend at the SECC in Glasgow. It was well worth the trip over there, and well worth the wait. One of those shows that I wanted to see again pretty much as soon as it’d finished!
Well, I was driving from Glasgow to St Andrews via the Kincardine Bridge, and saw the brown sign for it. My satnav wasn’t happy, but I came off the motorway and went to see it. I’ve been meaning to go for ages, and seeing as I was going past it anyway, it made sense to drop by. Got as far as the car park, took a few pictures, and left again. Only a 10 minute detour.
Hope it’s a good job – teaching English in Quebec! Not starting until September, but really looking forward to it!!!
Years ago when I was a little kid, my parents stole my swimming costume while we were swimming in the sea off the coast of Greece on holiday. It was really embarrassing, especially for the man who was snorkeling nearby!
