I have dropped off of the radar so many times on this website, I need to buck up my ideas!
Anyway, I’ve had a hectic past 6 months but now I’m finally settled again so hopefully I’ll be around a bit more. Admittedly, I’ve said that an awful lot of times but third (or 100th) time lucky, right?
So, a quick catchup? Thailand was amazing! Honestly the best two months of my life, I can’t wait to go back once I finish university/have the money. I got back on results day, turns out I only got BBC in my A levels (oops) but got into Heriot-Watt University to study Chemistry, for which it’s currently 2nd in the league tables. I’m doing pretty well so far I think, got a few A+’s on my lab reports and stuff yay!
I packed up and moved to Edinburgh on the 1st of September and absolutely love it, it’s beautiful! I’ve settled really well into a group of friends and we all get on, so that’s good :D
Me and Ryan split up after three years, he got into King’s College London and I just decided I didn’t want to deal with only being able to see my boyfriend for 2 days a month for the next 5 years, so we’re just staying good friends now.
Also, I’m 19 now! Ah it’s so weird, I joined this site when I was only 12! In that time I’ve only done 267 things, and most of which aren’t actual achievements, but still!
That’s it pretty much I think, how has everyone else been?!
I haven’t been on here in so long! Desperately hoping that everyone else is still around and active, I miss this site!
I’ve decided that for 2012 I’m going to get back on here again and start working towards some of the goals I gave up on 5 years ago!
I got two magpies (two for joy) on the 11.11.11. It doesn’t really hold a meaning for me, it doesn’t really symbolise anything but it makes me happy :D
Just looking forward to my next one now!
Do any of you speak French and wouldn’t mind helping a poor girl out?
It’s my AS exam tomorrow, and I’m pooing myself over tenses and verb endings.
If the subject of the sentence is a plural, do you always use the ending for Ils or would I use the infinitive? I don’t know if that makes sense or not, but if I wrote the sentence, the oranges have a lot of juice would I write:
A) Les oranges ont beaucoup de jus? OR
B) Les oranges avoir beaucoup de jus?
I would be really, really grateful if you could help, sorry I haven’t explained it well at all!
So basically, I set up this goal a long time ago, outlining a list of things I have to do before I turn 18. I only have 3 months left, and I’ve not even started my list!
Think back to your teen years, what were some of the things you wished you’d done before you were 18? Or what awesome things did you before you were 18 that you would totally recommend to others? :D
I first had it done a few months ago and I love it! It’s so much easier! :D
Oh deary me. It’s been forever since I was on here, and I really miss it! I think I’ve grown up quite a bit since I last showed my face, so have a new picture so you can all put a face to the name :P
Anyway, the point of this post was to have a brief catch up with people on here so I’ll fill you in about what’s been going on with me for the past 6 months.
I started college last September, and have slaved away doing 5 AS levels ever since. I say slaved away, I got a disappointing C in Chemistry and an even worse D in History, which was surprising as I was getting straight A’s in all my mocks, in my Christmas exams so the hard work really started after that. I’ve had 4 exams in the past month, and I have 2 left on Monday 6th for English and French. I settled into college pretty well I think, and aside from the Christmas exams it’s all going okay :D
Remember my Christmas job? They hired me again at the end of February until March 28th, then extended my contract May 28th. So I finished a week ago, but during my exit interview my manager told me I work like ‘shit off a shovel’ and that I’m a ‘shining star’, and she also mentioned that they’re reviewing their finances and a few vacancies should pop up in a week or two and that they’ll be in touch, which is always promising. At first I was working 4 nights a week, but at the beginning of May it was too much with my exams, so I handed in my notice, but my manager offered me the same job but with 50% less hours, meaning I’d just work a Saturday, which was blooming perfect :D
Ooh! I also got pretty into nail art about 3 months ago, and have recently started selling hand painted false nails here on Ebay! Admittedly, I’ve only sold one pair so far but I’m hoping that it’ll kick off a little bit soon! :P
And that is pretty much it! How has everyone been? :D
I got my cartilage pierced a few days ago, and it’s suddenly swollen up and gone bright red. Oh the pain.
It might only be a christmas temp job but I don’t care, it’s money and experience and that’s what counts!
For English I have to write a dramatic monologue of 1000 words that can be about anything at all, but every time I try and write something that starts out as a good idea my writing just gets worse and worse so I start again, and frankly I have no idea what to write about now.
So, do any of you have a scenario/character/theme I could base a dramatic monologue on?
I could also do a short story or extract from a novel but neither of those really interest me
Ooh I adore them, but it’s all started chipping so I’ve got to take it off :(
So, on my drink water for only a week goal I posted about having Cherry Lucozade and a Slushie because I’d completely forgotten about the goal. Anyway, I then recieved this comment:
oh my god how crap are you :P
all i have drunk for 3 days is water i love it!!! x
Anyway, my question is – Have you ever gotten a comment that wasn’t exactly following the ‘encouraging and supportive’ tone of 43things?
I have a day off of college due to feeling like I’m going to spew everywhere when I move, therefore I’m going to sit in bed with my laptop and update every single goal I’ve got on here! :)
When was the last time you took a day off from work/school?
Either because you were ill, or just fancied a break
It was really good actually, I’d been worrying for weeks but it wasn’t that bad :D
I made a few new friends in my tutor group, and there’s a few nice people in the classes I’m in where I don’t know anybody so I’m looking forward to going back :D
My final options were History option A, which was about the witchcraze, Chemistry, French, English Language and Science In Society. They’re all pretty good :D
I’ll post some photos in a little while, just waiting for them to upload :D
My mum did a bit of hunting on the internet and found the tickets for 2 days earlier for only £27 return! So now Vicky is coming as well, and because of Virgins group discount the trains have worked out at £25 each!
I’m going with Ryan, Dan and Alex :) Vicky was meant to be coming but dropped out cause the tickets were too expensive and Charlotte’s mum wouldn’t let her but I’m excited nonetheless! Booking the tickets tonight, £38 return which isn’t bad, however we’d left it a week before we booked them so they were supposed to be £27 but have gone up in price now :/
