Firstly, tuva 's questions;
1. What do you want to work with when you're older? Why?
I want to work with English and the written word, because I love to write and read, and I'm likely to get a good grade in it at the end of this year. I'm doing both English language and English literature for my AS levels, which I'm looking forward to, and hopefully will achieve success in.
2. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
There's so many things that I would change about myself, and so ultimately it would be my lack of belief in myself. I need to realise that I'm not ugly, that I'm moderately intelligent and generally a nice person. Confidence goes a long way- it opens a lot of new opportunities to you, and when not in excess, draws people to you.
3. What's your worst fear?
My worst physical fear is being attacked, and this means that I can't face walking on my own much later than 8 o'clock. I find it so scary, and am forever imagining noises and movement. I guess it ties in with my worst mental fear, which is of complete and utter isolation, so therefore my fear of walking on my own in the dark is a microcosm of a much scarier and extreme idea.
4. What's the ideal boyfriend like?
Ahhh... the idea boyfriend;
- wears polo shirts.
- uses Lacoste 'Style in Play'.
- has sexy, wavyish hair.
- wears Dunks, Asics or K-Swiss.
However, shallowness and aesthetics aside, he has to be caring, tender, and just someone who I can hang out with and be myself around.
5. What's your opinion on George W. Bush?
I don't feel I have enough information to make an informed decision, but I didn't agree with his decision to go to war with Iraq, and damn, he looks like a monkey.
I just spent half an hour trying to iron the pleats back into my black Kookai skirt. Unfortunately, my efforts were in vain, and it wasn't having any of it. So now I've wasted half an hour of my time, and all I have to show for it is a strange looking skirt, that looks like somebody's sat on it. Damn.
Today, for those of you who do not know, is Good Friday, and it's been really nice. It's good enough weather that I've been able to wear my flats, a skirt, and a t-shirt outside, and feel warm. Lucy, Chloe and I sat on the REC most of the day, with visits from Becca, Lindsey and Sarah at various stages, and we watched some thrilling football matches going on around us. Basically, we people-watched the day away, and gosh there were some interesting people. They included;
- Shirt-tuck man. Really ugly man, probably in early twenties, with his shirt off and tucked into his jeans. Was playing football with fifteen and sixteen year olds. Looked aggressive, and often held a beer in his hand.
- Bandana boy- wore a bandana. Wasn't very interesting.
- Fit boy- this boy was rather nice looking.
- THE COUPLE- nothing else said. They're old skool victims of our prying eyes.
Oh there were more, but I can't remember them. Pretty comedy though.
Last night was good as well. After school, Lindsey, Chloe and I went up to Lower for some tennis- I beat Chloe 3 games to 1, and I am going to own Josh's life at tennis if he's brave enough to actually play against me. After this, we went to Lisa's, which was good. Chloe and I walked down together, and knocked on the door for ages- no reply. We tried Lisa's house phone- no reply, and so we left a great message, in which I sang "we're standing here right outside your door, and I don't think that my heart can take much more" in. It was good. We then rang her mobile, and found out that she was just coming back from buying drinks. Ahh. Becca, Lindsey and Amy arrived, and we ordered a pizza, and sat around and talked. I had a couple of glasses, as did the others which gave nice fluidity to the conversation.
So yeah. Nice couple of days. Tomorrow should also be good as it is my birthday meal in the evening! After a few changes in the plan, we're now going to Pizza Express in Aylesbury- so hopefully I will be able to get a table. And then there's my birthday on Sunday! Woo!
