New Blog Post?!

Im thinking about resurrecting this blog, I think itll do me good to write things down.

Anywho, I actually went to uni today, with good intentions, even though I started at 4PM today and its a Betts lecture, I just cant listen to her. Half way through the 2 hour lecture we have to go to another lecture theatre so Claire suggested that when the first half is over we just run away (like A LOT of people do when they remember how crap her lectures are). So we went to the student union, had a drink and chatted for about an hour. We’ve decided to do this fornightly since we don’t have any workshop classes together anymore, feels ages since we’ve talked properly.

Shes also trying to convince me to donate blood next week, which I would but I faint so easily, I want to though, I think I might….I will if Laura comes with me to take me back home if it goes badly.

I really do hope that America does the right thing today.


Shadow Of The Day

I’m really impressed with Nottingham Trent University, I’ve enrolled online and everything during which they asked me if I would like to join the doctors, which I thought id have to go down there and find out about, but no, they’ve done it for me, and they’ve sent me the forms to join their surgery. On one they asked if I would like to be an organ donor, which after long consideration I’ve decided that I would like to do it, its a little scary, but I think, if I needed an organ I would be forever grateful to whoever’s I got if I would be so lucky to get one. Also Ive had issues with setting up payments and that and everyones been really nice who Ive spoke to or emailed. And Ive been posting on a message board on their website set up so we can make friends before we go, and one of the psychology department teachers has posted to let us know that we should be getting our welcome packs towards the end of the week – something that we were all concerned about not getting.

I have a new bag, its amazing, its made from used juice cartons, obviously they’ve been sterilised and sewn together, I absolutely love it.

Unfortunately MTV have seem to forgotten what the VMAs are about, none of the awards went to the best video, none, they went to the most popular artists, it was ridiculous. They even had a “quadruple threat” category for people who also produced, acted, had clothing lines etc, who cares? this has nothing to do with the videos. They didn’t air the categories that actually did have anything to do with videos such as best director or best editing. Another annoyances: the gym class heroes fool being there when Fall Out Boy won their award, which they shouldn’t have I would have rather any other band in that category to win over them, obviously I wanted Linkin Park to win (whose performance was awesome), but I would have been happy to see the White Stripes win, their videos are generally quite interesting.

The performances were also a let down, Fall Out Boy were rubbish the singer couldn’t cope, again like at Live Earth, he was just mumbling along and sweating a lot, Serj wasn’t great either awesome seeing him with the Foos though.

The editing geniuses also didn’t even include the full Foo Fighters performance, speaking of whom, Im looking forward to their new album, I wasn’t bawled over by their last and The Pretender lacks something, I think its in the chorus, it needs something extra. However Im looking forward to Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace because they’ve worked with Gil Norton on it, who produced The Colour and The Shape, by far the best Foo album to date, hopefully he has shown them the way.

Another thing thats annoying me is Amy Whinehouse, Pete Doherty and all the other drug and drink junkies. I don’t care about them, why should I have to read about them? I obviously don’t read about them but it annoys me being there in magazines and newspapers. Millions of people suffer from addictions, and I bet most of them are in worse positions than these. And what the hell does Pete have to do to get thrown in jail?
