This morning therefore consisted of me doing random stuff, including playing on my keyboard. Nice musical sesh though.
I then met up with Gemma and we headed down town. Whilst we were there we spotted this book:
Our friend Holly is a bestselling author? She never said a word! I had a lovely afternoon as usual but eventually the moment came when she had to go to work. Rubbish.
I returned home and set up my dad’s birthday present of a laptop which was fun. Just now I went and answered a load of Friends Exposed questions and one of them got me carried away:
I watched the live internet streaming of the “tsunami” hitting Hawaii as well tonight. I’ve seen bigger waves in Bournemouth! Very disappointing. The earthquake that caused this was off the coast of Chile and was an incredible 8.8 on the Richter Scale, one of the strongest earthquakes ever recorded. Scary stuff!
The amusing story of the day was Wayne Bridge not shaking John Terry’s hand at the Stoke/Arsenal game. Nice one Bridgey!
I am in a state of ecstasy again (no I haven't taken any, I’m just happy). I am in love and everything is going brilliantly at the moment!

History with Mrs R: I went into the study and did some coursework. Isn’t that the most exciting thing you’ve ever heard?
Eng Lit with Cornish: We read some Romeo and Juliet and looked an exam paper. I was born to play Romeo!
This afternoon Gemma came round for a couple of hours and as usual she put a massive smile onto my face. I didn’t think 19 months ago that Gemma would have such a big impact on my life. In fact, she has basically taken it over. I love you Gemma :)
I then didn’t really do much for the rest of the night other than watch random stuff on TV, but nothing exciting.
I have been asked a question on Formspring.me:
Don't you feel guilty for all the times you've attempted to publicly humiliate people? I know I sure as hell fucking would.
Hmm, good one. Some things I feel guilty about, mainly the obvious, but I wouldn't say there were really that many times. Any major damage has been repaired now so not really got much to be guilty about. And I'm not that person any more.
To be honest, that person is a bit of an idiot. Also language is unnecessary. If you too have something equally amusing to ask me please to do here!

Today started as any other day but then turned very weird.
Within a few minutes of arriving at school, Me,Chris and Mike were talking about the killer whale that ate its keeper in Orlando sea world. For some reason it’s quite funny and it’s a useful point to why they shouldn’t be used for entertainment.
Then we had an assembly and the message today was “online safety”. We then watched a video which seemed to basically be some paedophile teaching us how to be a paedophile. Very disturbing.
Geology with Mrs W: We labelled an Iguanodon and then were told we had to go and visit this sexual help thing. My fave moment in their was Mike wearing the beer goggles and then putting a condom on the plastic cock. I avoided taking part: I don’t need a Chlamydia test, I didn’t want to go anywhere near the plastic cock and I didn’t really want to rub oil on the blown-up condoms. But I did manage to steal this:
Yes, it’s a giant green sperm! If your sperm looked like this you would have a problem.
Geology with Mr M: We did our last little bit on dull brachiopods.
I went to Gemma’s for lunch and showed her my sperm (the one in the photo, not anything else) and ended up ten minutes late for history. Amazingly out of a class of 5 another two came in after me.
History with Mr R. We continued discussing Tudor marriage and it again seemed to turn into a lesson about sex in Tudor Times. Very strange.
This evening I was working at Serendipity Sam’s and it involved a lot of running!
So all in all, a very strange day. But a good one none the less!
Thursday, 25 February 2010
A rather non-exciting day today!
Eng Lit with Tenacious Leigh. We looked at the specimen exam paper and mark scheme
History with Mrs R. Mrs R told me my coursework was on the right track. I then kind of sneaked home early only to find no-one was in and I’d forgotten my keys. It then decided to rain. I posted a Facebook situation complaining about the situation and got five likes and two comments. Mean world!
My work experience this afternoon was spent sat watching the kids rehearse a performance, so wasn’t very exciting. I should be getting a badge next week though!
This evening I labelled some dinosaurs and then began to annoy Holly. This expanded into me annoying Jade Earl and then just randomly tagging people in a status. How fun!
Tuesday, 23 February 2010
I made up for the last few days of getting up late by getting up at half 7 this morning. My body clock hates me.
History with Mr R. We were supposed to be talking about marriage but it seemed to transform into talking about sex in Tudor times.
Eng Lit with Tenacious Leigh. I died inside as we did more Pride and Prejudice. And Connor has over-applied the fake tan and looks like he’s been tangoed!
Geology with Mrs W. We looked at how dinosaurs evolved and then watched an hour of Walking with Dinosaurs. Here are the notes I made, though I don’t think they will be very useful:
- T-Rex give Mrs T-Rex present
- T-Rex’s have sexy time
- Mrs T-Rex is up the duff
- T-Rex’s have a domestic
- Mrs T-Rex gets post-natal impression
- Baby T-Rex’s eat dinner
- Mrs T-Rex goes on hols
- Kids get ASBO for eating their brother
- Mrs T-Rex dies
- T-Rex’s get blown away.
Still, a lovely little story.
I got home and had my hair-cut to it’s normal length and had to look after the hairdressers kids whilst she cut everyone else’s hair.
I then did some more hard work on my history coursework, much to Tidby’s annoyance, and now I feel like I want to shove loads of footnotes into this.
Finally my day ended at Gemma’s, drinking cheap chocolate milkshake whilst watching Fanny Smith struggle with the wu-tangs in the Ski cross at the Olympics.
PS- Are the people who make wu-tangs called the Wu-tang Clan?
Geology with Mr M: More stuff about brachiopods.
The most exciting thing that happened today was getting Marina & The Diamonds’ first album and it is fantastic. I think it could be my fave album ever and that’s after only two listens! I really do love it. Buy it. Now.
In National News Gordon Brown is being accused of bullying. Come on! People get bullied in the playground. Grow up! After David Cameron' stopping his daughter listening to Lily Allen and today’s new Lily tweeted this: thinking of calling the national bullying helpline following Mr Camerons hurtful comments last week ! Another reason to love Twitter!
Finally, here is what is going to be on the back of our 6th Form Leavers Hoodies. I’m the bottom but two in the digit one.
Monday, 22 February 2010
Amazingly, for the second day running, I didn’t get up til nearly 12. Even I can’t understand how I can manage to do that. I blame my genes!
I made it downstairs just in time to say “good morning” to my dad and then I had lunch. This is the life. Sadly, I thought I ought to actually do some work this afternoon and I made good progress on my history coursework:
No, seriously I did actually write a fair bit.
I then visited a rather tired Gemma. She is not-surprisingly exhausted after doing three night-shifts running. Poor baby. I can wake anyone up though fortunatly, especially when I’ve had dinner and end up hyper (this happened today!)
My Winter Olympics watching today consisted of seeing the British two-man bob crash and the guy sliding down on his bum. Fortunatly both guys were OK, but it made me think why bother with a sled if you can just slide down. How fun would that be!
The BAFTA’s were today and many bloggers will probably be marking their verdict on the winners, but I don’t care.
I shall end this entry with two statements. The first is that I am no longer doing the whole reflections on my week thing cos I can’t be bothered. The second is that I’m annoyed at all the stupid groups and scams on Facebook and across the internet. I regularly get invited to join groups which tell me if I invite all my friends I will be given something cool or my profile will change. How can anyone fall for these? They are rubbish. Do not join them. Over and out.
Sunday, 21 February 2010
I was supposed to be doing history work this morning but that kind of failed as I couldn’t be bothered to get up. Still, a few hours lying in bed was lovely.
I then watched the highlights of last night’s Winter Olympics and I saw Brit Amy Williams win gold in the Skeleton Bob. Good on her girl.
I ended up making a random documentary about the Castleman Trailway when I was randomly walking the countryside. Here it is:
I spent the afternoon with Gemma which was nice and I wish I could be with her all the time. It’s a shame she has to work nights though cos I only get to see her til 8.
Saturday, 20 February 2010
I woke up this morning and discovered I am still alive despite last night’s out of date biscuit fiasco. I had work for most of the day but I really enjoyed it, it’s been a good week at work.
I popped into Gemma’s for a bit which made her all emotional cos she wasn’t expecting to see me today. We’ve seen each other every day since about October I think so a day where we can’t see each other is a nightmare. Fortunatly that day wasn’t today. We are stupidly in love.
I had a massively hard badminton lesson where I didn’t hit a shot other than the warm-up. My legs will ache tomorrow. Then I played another two hours-ish of badminton, but I was quite good today.
Apologies for the lack of things to say today but I was at work all day. Get used to that in five years time when I have a full years job.
Friday, 19 February 2010
I had work this morning which was a particularly good session and then it was off home for a couple of hours. Next I went to Gemma’s and discovered that we were going to meet up with Mike in Ringwood.
So off we trundled into Ringwood and we met not only Mike but his would-be-girlfriend (as in Mike fancies her), Bex. I have kind of spoken to her online before but this was the first official meeting but it didn’t last very long and I think she still holds the belief that I’m weird.
Me, Gemma and Mike then randomly bumped into Jess and Ed and had a random chat. It was like the first time I’ve spoken to Ed yet I seem to already be his best friend! We continued to patrol Ringwood looking for other people to talk to but we failed miserably.
I then had a nice few hours round Gemma’s house. Now, thanks to O2 surprises I have free calling credit this week between 6 and 7pm and this was used. First I played a game where I called a number and gave the phone to Hannah to guess who it was. She guessed her own brother and then guessed Sammy. Gemma snatched the phone and had a conversation with her. Next we took advantage of being able to withhold a number and David rang Cassie pretending to be from Google. She fell for it to begin with too. Sorry Cassie.
Sadly the time came when I had to walk Gemma to work. I had to wander home whilst chewing my packet of Rowntree’s Randoms all by myself.
This evening a couple of weird things happened. I ended up cheering Julia up after some relationship problems when I spoke to her on msn. I found some Garibaldi biscuits and although the best before date was 20th June 2009 I still ate them. She told me I would die but I’m writing this and I’m fine. So far that is…
Also I somehow ended up in an epic poking battle on Facebook with Holly. I shall never give up. I also began organising my 18th birthday, the celebration of which looks to be held on 12th March. How exciting!
I somehow managed to mention 11 different people in this entry, what a social person I am.
Thursday, 18 February 2010
As expected, I got a little sticker!
Group B1! I had no breakfast and then has eaten only some crisps and half a panini when I had to go to the interview. There was a little presentation and then I did the literacy task which involved putting in lots of my own experience.
The actual interview here involved me doing a three-minute presentation which I did without any hitches. The rest of the interview was questions asked around the group. One girl had a massive Bristolian accent and I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself every time she spoke.
I think once again the interview went quite well, and I have to wait and see what the reply is and then I have to make my choices! Scary stuff!
Also, if you’re viewing this on the blog page I hope you like the new design, and check it out if you’re viewing on Facebook here.

I was working at the kid’s theme park Adventure Wonderland today, though as it was raining the rides were shut and only the indoor bit was open, which meant I had to go early cos it got too full.
I came home and found myself at a loss of things to do so I ended up going on Wii Sports Resort. I played some sports I haven't really played much before including archery (three bulls-eyes in a row, oh yeah) and cycling, which was very tiring.
I went round to Gemma’s in the evening and was pleased that Ann cooked some pancakes for me. I had about 7 though Ann seems to think it was about 10. Still, I ate far too much but enjoyed it hugely. Of course, I had to take a photo:
All this sugar had a weird effect on my body, and as well as being really hyper by pupils enlarged quite a lot:
I’m off to Bristol tomorrow for my third and final Uni interview, so come back to find out how it goes!
Monday, 15 February 2010
Whey! It’s half term properly now and as Gemma wasn’t working this morning we went for our Monday morning milkshake which was nice.
I thought I was supposed to be working this afternoon but that was because of a mistake by either myself or my father. I turned up and there was no-body there.
This left me with the entire afternoon to find something to do, which I then did by spending hours watching the Winter Olympics. The luge was fun to watch, though why would you do that when you know someone died on that track the other day. Also good was the Men’s Moguls (small humps really) and I saw some incredible jumps such as backflips and 720s.
This inspired me to do it myself. Now I don’t have the money to go somewhere where’s there’s snow and mountains but I do have a Wii Balance Board and a copy of Family Ski. Here’s my amazing mogul run:
How awesome! I also had a go at Ski-jumping on Wii Fit and managed 144m. The winner of the Olympic ski-jumping jumped a mere 108m so I would have won by miles. Something tells me this isn’t entirely accurate.
This evening I watched the Men’s Snowboard Cross which sees four snowboarders race each other to the bottom of a slop whilst going over loads of jumps. People fall over constantly and it’s awesome to watch. Snowboard Cross legend Seth Wescott won! Ladies' snowboard cross is tomorrow night and should be awesome.
15th July: A lot of things have happened since May; I get to stay up every day, I’ve joined the schools recorder band and I’ve visited Ringwood Comp. Anyway, today we played in a special concert. I played Eastenders and titanic.
I was flipping awful if I remember rightly…
27th July: Sadly I left school (PJS) on Thursday. I’ve got loads of memories though.
10th Oct: Ringwood School is alright but I don’t like it that much. We get loads of homework and for P.E. we have to get dressed really quickly. We got invaded by Romans today. The roman soldier tryed to kill me with his shield, another soldier was camping in the school’s grounds and a roman lady told us about the other side of life.
17th Dec: Mrs B is still ill. We did our marketing campaign today.
This was in English where we had to advertise a product. This is our group’s idea (it was me, Mike, and Sam ), the Thought Seeker helmet:
25th Dec: Today I got a Lego Racers remote control car, a mega science lab, Now 56 (the CD) an Italian Job scalextrix and Harry Potter 2 on Playstation 2.
Those were the days!
23rd Jan 2004: First day of the Isle of Wight trip today. Boring morning at school, then off we went. All we did was meet the French children and played a few games. Then we had a catwalk.
24th Jan: Still at Isle of Wight. Today we did loads of activities. First we did go-karts- they can go 40 miles per hour! I kept crashing! Then we did aeroball. It is basically a cross between basketball and trampolining. We did some other activities then we had a disco.
This is where my diary gets particularly embarrassing. Here is my first genuine love interest:
28th Jan: I’ve got a crush on LJ ! I’m going to wait til Valentine’s Day til I ask her out!
There are so many things wrong with the way my brain worked back then.
Thurs 12th Feb: Since Wednesday I’ve been going out with LJ. She is soo sweet. I really love her.
I somehow doubt I had fallen in love in a day. Deary me!
13th Feb: Valentines Day at school today. LJ gave me a card she made herself.
Amazingly I still have that card, here it is:
28th Feb: Best day in a long time. We went to Bournemouth + bought… a Playstation 2.
Don’t know about you, but I seem more excited about this than having a girlfriend LOL.
8th March: LJ dumped me today. I don’t mind really.
I don’t no why I lied to my own diary. I may have not even been 12 yet and though it wasn’t love I did have affection for her. And I was pissed off it was only a week before by birthday.
10th March: My cheeks shine rosy again here. I think Sam could do with a boy. I’ll wait til Friday though.
2 DAYS! What was I like? As a 17 year old this is now very embarrassing. I’m sure you’re finding it amusing though.
So what happened next? Did I ask Sam out or did I get too scared? Find out in the next installment, which you can find by clicking here!
I’m sorry but I’m at it again. I have had an amazing day and I’m really really happy. Anyone who’s had a bad time of things lately and reads my blog regularly must find it very depressing. I did have the hardship of getting up quite early in order to pick Gemma up from work, but it was worth it as she gave me these:
How lovely! I was also given a photo-frame with a nice pic in and a mug full of Cadbury’s Creme Eggs. I left Gemma to sleep for a while and returned home to prepare the presentation for my last Uni interview at UWE. It’s quite a difficult thing to write!
Gemma came back to mine in the afternoon and we had a lovely time mostly just cuddling. We watched a random film called “Without a Paddle” which was OK and then we played a game of Destination. It’s a board game where you are a taxi driver and you’ve got to make more money than the other person.
Gemma won by a few hundred £.
It’s was a simple yet pleasurable day. I’m very happy to be able to call Gemma my valentine and knowing she will be for many years to come!
Sunday, 14 February 2010
I feel a bit bad about the fact that every evening I come to write my blog, I end up sharing my immense happiness. Right now people in Haiti are still trying to deal with the earthquake, across the world millions of people are living in extreme poverty, closer to home there are homeless people living rough on the streets and people who are sat up in bed dreading another lonely day.
I am very fortunate to be able to say that I am none of those people and I feel very privileged to be able to do so. My biggest hard-ship was today was getting up early-ish to meet my amazing girlfriend. We went down town and played the Rowntrees’ Randoms game. Rowntree’s Randoms are sweets which are in the shape of random objects, and me and Gemma used them to tell stories. A crocodile wearing a fake moustache, a bow-tie and socks was perhaps the most random plot line.
We then went to the cemetery as Gemma wanted to tend to her grandparent’s graves. We took the long way out as I wanted to look at the war graves. I have seen gravestones of soldiers from both World Wars across Europe, but I have never actually seen one’s for the local people. There was a sailor who died on HMS Tartar in 1917 who was only 17. We live in good times.
After that rather depressing visit, we returned to Gemma’s. Jack was there most of the day which meant that it was a long day… Still, I had a laugh and spent the day with Gemma so things couldn’t be much better. Gemma and I always discovered what Gemma’s dog Scampi looks like with sunglasses on…
Saturday, 13 February 2010
I’m bored yet extremely happy, and here’s why:
1) Gemma. 18 and a half amazing months we’ve been together. That feels so good. And the fact is that we’ve had so many amazing times together, yet there are far more to come than have been. I have seen and heard a lot of people complaining about Valentine’s Day ‘cos they are single, and I know that I will not be that person. It’s impossible to explain unless you’ve properly been in love, and you don’t really know what it feels like to be in love til it happens. But I am in love, and it’s amazing!
2) Friends. For a fair bit of my childhood I was quite lonely. But things have changed. I spent most of my time at school with Mike (as much as I want to throttle him at times) and walking time with Chris and the little things they say which make me laugh are priceless. Further afield there’s Sammy and Julia who are kind of like my personal agony aunts and are always there for me when I need them, and of course I am always there for them.
3) A Career. After a 16 years if not really knowing where my life was going, but now I know. It is certain now (due to my offers and stuff) that I will in around 5 years time be fully-trained as a primary school teacher. That is incredible. I know that I will have a lifetime of a happy (but stressful!) job.
Those are the three main things but I could go on for ever. I like blogging stuff, it’s a lovely way to share experiences. I don’t really know how many people read this but I think a few do. If you’ve read this on Facebook could you please “like” it? Anyway, I should get to bed. Night x
Friday, 12 February 2010
Today started off fairly average. I vaguely made an effort for the Haiti dressing up day by wearing blue and red but it’s the money that counts. I paid to dress up, put change in boxes etc and also bought lots of cakes and stuff, all of which went to Haiti. Nice lunch and money to charity, everybody wins.
History with Mrs R. Mostly, as per usual, it was Mrs R talking a lot. We have to make a start on our coursework now, it’s like an exciting adventure.
Eng Lit with Cornish. For some unexplained reason Cornish was dressed up as one of the 118 guys of the advert, though he “camped up” the part. It was very hard to take him seriously and there were some disturbing moments due to the shorts…
Then it was lunch but unlike most Friday’s I hanged around for a bit as it was Open Mic. There were some brilliant performances from Jack Campion, Mel Barton, The Dandy Pratts and Beth was as amazing as usual. Poor Tom Lawrie was forced into singing a song though. Here’s a quick snap of Jack singing I’m Yours:
It was lovely seeing all that talent. I then went into town for reasons I can’t disclose until Sunday (though if you think about it it’s obvious). I took the long way back round the lake and saw that spring is certainly on the way. I saw a baby blue tit, which is really early, and also a bird I’ve always wanted to see, a bullfinch. Here’s one of my fave spots on the entire planet:
I then arrived home and checked my e-mails. To my tremendous surprise and happiness I have been given an offer from BOTH Winchester and Chichester Uni’s. So I’m going to University. How exciting! This is awesome news, and I haven't even had an interview with UWE yet! My planned life is still going perfectly :)
The final thing to make my day happy was my Gemma. I spent a couple of hours at her house which was lovely, as ever. Perfect Day!
Wednesday, 10 February 2010
According to the online route-planner it’s an hour and ten minutes away so we gave plenty of time and left at half 7 for a 10am start. Unfortunately, there was a massive accident which held us up for 45 minutes where a car had overturned and landed into a ditch (news story here) and also annoying roadworks. We only just made it on time.
On arrival I was given the customary name sticker!
The morning was mostly talks and tours which was a bit rubbish ‘cos I’ve already been there before. We then had a written task about phonics which was much easier than expected. After lunch we had paired interviews. I was being interviewed alongside a girl called Kirsty who recognised me from Winchester last week. It’s amazing how much you can find out about a person when your stuck in a room with them for half an hour. As we both have the same first choice we may end up on the same course, which would be quite good.
The interview itself was fairly straight-forward though I think I prefer the group interview style. A would love to get an offer from here. 2 down, 1 left: Bristol West of England next week. Woo!
The journey home was fairly quick but I was so exhausted for the rest of the evening…
Tuesday, 9 February 2010
P2: History with Mr R. We looked at the increase in the power of parliament in Tudor times, when Mr R was diverging into random stuff.
P3/4: Eng Lit with Tenacious Leigh. We read a 20 A4 page article about Jane Austen, then watched the TV version whilst people drilled in the roof. Not the most fun lesson ever!
P5/6: Geology with Mrs W. We did the evolution of fish to amphibians. We then were set THREE essay questions to do before this time next week. How awful.
I discovered today that I managed to leave my wallet on the bus on Saturday which was clever of me. They found my mum’s business card in it and phoned her, and my Dad had to go and pick it up and pay £2 for the privilege. I can’t help but find it rather amusing though.
I have changed my e-mail address for anyone who has it. It is now the much more sensible email@example.com !
I spent a couple of hours with Gemma again this evening. This routine of me having to be at school everyday and only seeing her 8-10 every evening is horrible. I can’t wait ‘til our holiday together.
I have my second Uni interview tomorrow, so be sure to come back here to see how it went! Gulp!
My brother seemed a lot better this morning as I lay in bed for an hour and a half thinking about getting up. It was a much nicer night without him puking every half an hour.
P3/4: Geology with Mr M. We basically spent the lesson doing stupid quizzes, which ended up getting really competitive. A very good way of revising though surprisingly!
The short time I was at school was long enough to realise the builders have finished the jubilee garden. After much hope during the building process, it’s not really very exciting.
Cornish sent us an e-mail informing us he wasn’t gonna be in the lesson so I went home really early and completely wasted the entire afternoon. I can’t even remember how I wasted it although I think my laptop and Wii Sports Resort were both important factors!
I felt a bit miserable today due to the fact I haven't got much to look forward to in the near future. It’s mostly a normal routine of school everyday apart from interviews which stress me out. Half term is filled completely with work which is annoying in a way but I really need the money and although it’ll be nice to be 18 I’m not really that excited about my birthday.
I haven't done a depressing blog entry for a while but I think this one fills that void quite effectively. A good rest-of-week please…
Sunday, 7 February 2010
I was still up at half 2 this morning due to the fact my brother was throwing up. This was bad for him and bad for me as I had to pick Gemma up from work at 8. I nearly fell asleep when stood outside Gemma’s work and I could feel my legs nearly going. It would have been embarrassing if Gemma left work only to find me lying on the pavement.
After generally pissing around, I returned to Gemma’s for the afternoon where I once again had a lovely time. It was amusing to see Gemma’s mum demolish an unwanted cabinet :)
Turns out my poor ill brother has tonsillitis. Bless him :P
Time to reflect on my week for the 11th time!
Highlights of the week: Going to Bournemouth with Gemma, Mike and Sammy
Lowlight of the week: Being nervous before Uni interview
Random situation of the week: Defending history as a subject during my interview. Mrs R would have been proud.
Song of the week: Hot Chip- One Life Stand
Photo of the week:
Farmville level: 24
This was a fantastic week, and I hope this new one is just as good. A pretty standard week by all account other than a trip to Bognor on Wednesday for another interview.
Friday, 5 February 2010
Due to Mrs R being “unable to make the lesson” today, I had a decent lie-in and got the chance to get some work done. Fantastically relaxing for a Friday morning
P3/4: Eng Lit with Cornish. We watched the second half of the awful modern Romeo and Juliet movie. It’s so bad that it’s annoying. This trailer sums up how bad it is:
Gemma I then did our Monday morning routine a bit early. Poppies were a bit useless at bringing out the right food today though!
This evening I played a lot of badminton with a lesson and a club night. My coach has been focusing on footwork recently and naturally this involves a lot of running. I suppose this effort made up for the lack of exercise this morning!
Thursday, 4 February 2010
P1: Geology with Mrs W. We did more about the evolution of ammonoids. Dinosaurs soon, how exciting!
P2/3: Free. I accidently bought a strawberry Nutrigrain by pushing the wrong number in a vending machine, but it turned out to be quite nice. Then me and Mike did some work and made an animation for the next Man/Dike song.
P4: Geology with Mr M. We did our coral presentation’s and I continued the high standard I set up with the last one. Good stuff!
Due to Mr R’s absence it was early hometime today and I got to spend a few extra hours with Gemma. Here’s a video of Gemma playing Bop-it, but she’ll fail…won’t she?
I shall end with an animation I made on Pivot Stick Figure Animator when I was in Year 8. Here is “Mad Elephant”
Clearly I had few skills when I was in Year 8!
Also it turns out Julia is a psycho axe murderer! If I end up in a dustbin somewhere in several pieces you know who to blame!
Wednesday, 3 February 2010
I ended up arriving ten minutes late due to the normal half an hour journey taking an hour and a half. On arrival I got given a sticker!
After a presentation we were taken off into groups to be interviewed. It was quite scary at first but the people being interviewed were very nice and I think we were a good bunch of people that were interviewed.
It is government requirement that to do a teaching course you must do a small written exam to test your writing skills so we did that and it went fine. I was very much pleased with how the interview went and hopefully I’ll be offered a place.
I then returned to Ringwood and had a nice lunch with my Dad at The Elm Tree, consisting of a home-made curry and a chocolate pudding. Yum! The rest of my afternoon was spent either working or attempting to work and this lasted until about 8 when I picked Gemma up from work and stayed at hers for a bit. Whilst eating some Haribo there, I discovered this odd looking gummy bear:
There’s nothing I can say to top that.
Tuesday, 2 February 2010
P2: History (without Mr R). We did a timed essay in Mr R’s absence, which was hard and I wrote a load of rubbish.
P3/4: Eng Lit with Tenacious Leigh. More Pride and Prejudice. Not the most thrilling novel so far…
P5/6: Geology with Mrs W. We looked at more fossils, nautiloids and ammonoids. Inside the shell of these is a tube called a siphuncle (awesome name pronounced sigh-fun-call) and it would be call if a monkey had one ‘cos then it would be a monkey’s siphuncle!
Here’s an amusing news story for you: Man loses his teeth when his cigarette exploded!
My evening was hectic as I prepared stuff for my interview at Winchester Uni tomorrow. I’m full of nerves but I have answer’s to just about anything they could ask me so I should be fine. I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow and will attempt to take some photos around Winchester, but no promises!
I missed mine and Gemma’s Monday morning milkshake moment as Gemma was working today, but I did have the luxury of having ages to get ready and this gave me a very relaxing start to the day.
P3/4: Geology with Mr M. Now that the exam’s over and done with it was back onto fossils and we have each been set a small topic to do a PowerPoint on. I have to attempt to make it as good as the last one.
Me and Mike had another random Monday afternoon after walking through the Bickerly and then Cat City. Hilarious moments!
P6: Eng Lit with Cornish. We read an article about Earnest then watched the first bit of the modern day Romeo and Juliet. Bloody hell it’s bad, I wanted to get out of there as quick as possible. Hate it!
My evening has once again been fairly average. After the excitement of Friday there hasn’t been much to get excited about over the next few days. But exciting things are happening soon. My first Uni interview is Wednesday with two more on the two following Wednesdays, a few of us are going ice-skating on Saturday, and it is exactly six week’s today ‘til I’m 18! Read about all of that on the blog in the near future!
