I really have done some amazing things, dont think 2013 is gonna be able to top it, but I hope it does!
home from uni, so back on tumblr. so much shit to update you on.
The best thing has definitely been working at The X Factor final, bumping into nearly all of this year’s finalists, judges and presenters while I was there, and having to human-shield screaming audience members from them (including Olly Murs the love of my life, buzz). Best job ever and would do it all again for free. I’ve developed a love for James Arthur (since I was at his Newcastle audition, there from the start bitchez), and went to his homecoming gig and CD signing, both of which got me on TV for a split second. Pretty unprofessional since I was having my lunch just a couple of tables away from him at the final. Also finally got one of my biggest wishes ever granted, a hug from Olly Murs. BEST. Met JLS for the first time too actually. Celebrity loves aside, also got myself a new boy. Not gonna say boyfriend just yet but after nearly two months, its heading that way. Second year of uni has been amazing so far, doing well and stuff. Home for Christmas now so my liver and bank account can recover, I can chillax to the max, catchup on TV and eat real cooked food.
Let the Christmas blogging begin.
I AM FLYING TO CALIFORNIA TOMORROW
ALWAYS wanted to go to LA and now I finally get to go! Im staying on the fucking Hollywood Boulevard!
and then im going to Las Vegas too!
haven’t been abroad in 5 years im so excited to go on holiday. anyway, loadsa posts are queued for when I’m away, see ya in 2 weeks!
today was actually so good just shopping for hours on end by myself. it’s fun shopping with friends but I love shopping alone because i take forever dawdling around the shops and take my time trying on loads of things and be like ‘ah i’ll just come back to this shop again later’.
my plan for going back to uni in september.
this was well on its way when we had sun, but the weather is now horrendous. hopefully we’ll actually have a summer, if not, I’ll rely on the california sunshine.
I had my hair cut last week, because apparently this makes it grow faster. so hopefully in three months it will be considerably longer.
this one is proving to be the most difficult with home cooking and all the free food in the fridge. not as easy to eat like I do at uni.
- have loads of nice new clothes
earning about £150 a week and saving it all up to shopping in LA in august, so I think this one will definitely be achieved. also gonna raid topshop before I go back anyway.
so its all achievable, just need the sun to come out and to resist food temptation.
maybe I should exercise? lol no fuck that.
finally fucking legal.
it was my 18th Birthday on Friday. i couldnt be bothered to update on that sitch before now, but im bored so here it is.
on Thursday night, we went to go and see my dads family in South Shields and had a big family meal. which actually turned out to be really nice because I havent seen most of them in years.
then on Friday daytime, I got my presents (nothing worth bragging about) and £300 off my parents (that is though), and went out shopping and for my ‘first legal drink’ with my mum.
then on Friday night, Fran, Bish, Chels, Rhianna and Danielle came round for pre-drinks and nibbles and then we went out clubbing in Dirty Darlo. which, what i can remember of it, was awesome.
but I must tell you that I ended the night being sick on the club toilet floor and was still being sick the next day. biggest hangover i have ever had.
moving back to England on monday..
after two years of living in Belgium because my dad’s in the army.
were moving back to North Yorkshire, and I cant wait to see my old friends again and have a fucking awesome summer.
everythings changing, and everythings coming to an end. left boarding college two weeks ago, now were moving house, and in september i’ll be starting university.
these have been the craziest two years of my life, man.
had my last shift at work tonight
mixed feelings: im so happy that i dont have to work in that kitchen again because its a nightmare, but on the other hand im really sad to leave the people i’ve been working with for the past year. i got hugs from everyone before i left, and we still had a laugh even as i walked out the door :)
i’ll miss them.
so, work was okay. the first half was horrific because i was on loading trolleys, but lets not talk about that!
then i got back, had some crumpets, and have just spent the past hour watching Gavin and Stacey with my friend Sonia, and laughing out loud.
debating whether or not to wash my hair in the morning and let it go naturally curly for college….
so i have had quite a good day today
hopefully this means my January depression may be coming to an end? ;)
so i’m back at boarding college.
I had to try so hard not to cry when I hugged my mum and dad goodbye. As usual.
Its always hard coming back after the holidays, and in a couple of days I will absolutely love it here again. Coming back after Christmas is always the hardest because I have had such a good time with my family and have to leave.
I’ve been fine so far because Ive been catching up with my friends and its so good to see them again. I’ll tell you when it will hit me - when I’m lying in bed and its not my comfortable warm bed at home. And when I wake up in the morning and realise where I am.
I know I am only going to feel like this for a couple of days. I just have to not think of home too much because every time I do I can feel my eyes filling up.
the horrible feeling you get when you go to record something on sky plus thinking ‘oooh i’ll watch that sometime tomorrow’ but then you remember that you wont be here tomorrow because you will be back at boarding college, miles away from home.
my productive first day of 2011.
I didnt get up until 12, and that was only because my Dad woke me up.
I watched all of last nights soaps with my mum and sister.
I have watched 4 episodes of Torchwood and im still going.
I have been in my pyjamas and fluffy slippers all day.
so for new years eve were going to my mums friend’s house
I dont know her that well and I have never met her husband. Its going to be one of those awkward situations. Oh dear. I would much rather stay at home to be honest. I think New Year is overrated anyway.
