Okay, so, interesting week. College has been new and exciting, and we did a little work but not much. The group are pretty cool, the tutors are lovely. Mostly Autumn gig later this week, am very excited about it. Spent hours with my best friend here yesterday watching One Tree Hill.

Thursday I had 1 meal, Friday I only had one. Today I've had two biscuits. Not because I'm ill or anything, just because I'm honestly not hungry.

I delivered my job applications earlier, 2 hours later I got a call about one. :)

OH MY GOD [13 Sep 2005|11:28pm]
[ mood | excited ]

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG.

Okay, so I had a load of fun at my friend's house, she made pasta and then we watched the One Tree Hill pilot, Higher Ground: Scott Free and most of Perfect Body.

But during One Tree Hill, Heather Findlay called up, because I'd texted her saying I needed to tell her something. I told her her journal was up, and she said she had something to ask me. So I told her to go for it, and she told me what she wanted.

She wants me to make the official site not only for her (the one I was making) but also an official site for her and Angela's project, Odin Dragonfly!!!! Which is more urgent than the personal one. God, I am sooo happy right now.

Oh, I forgot (though I don't know how, maybe because I was sitting down) I hurt my bloody knee. Tripped up getting in to the elevator yesterday and now my knee hurts when I put pressure on it. It's really fracking annoying! Grrrrrr.

Wow.... [11 Sep 2005|10:40am]
[ mood | happy ]

Okay, so quite a week I have had. At college, did I mention that Paul opened like every single door for me? And there were a lot of doors we had to go through, during the tour and stuff. What a sweetie.

We then went on holiday and saw Mostly Autumn which was very cool. It was nice to see them, even if it was in a small venue. Talked briefly with Heather, who told me what their ex member that I used to have a crush on was up to. It sounds like he's well, and I'm glad. I miss him. Oh and during the gig she motioned for me to come forward from my place on the front row, right to the stage, and she gave me a piece that had broken off of her tambourine. I have a piece of her old one, now I have some new one too. Blimey, she works too hard, she's broken the new one already...it was a cool gig, and it was nice to see some of the usual faces and hear some stuff from the new album.

A few people are hooked on Mostly Autumn thanks to me, I've been letting them hear some. Two people locally are considering going to the gig in a week or two, and some are considering buying the album. Woo, go me! There was more MA coverage in Classic Rock Society this month - Heather was their page 3!

Construction on the Official Heather Findlay site - named Sunlit Dreams - isn't really going anywhere yet. I need artwork before I can, well, work. :) But it'll be up soon I'm sure, and I might try and get her journal online in the next day or two. Ooh, that reminds me, E-MAIL HEATHER!

Ate loads of junk food on holiday, which quite a few of you were glad about. Guys, stop worrying about me, okie?! :-P Bought some earrings and a few things. Rather, parents bought them. Woo.

And nothing much happened until yesterday, when I was invited to my best friend's house this week for a movie night where we shall be watching the One Tree Hill pilot on DVD and what is possibly our favourite movie, Perfect Body, about an anorexic gymnast. Should be a fun night. Oh, and yes, I went around town gathering job applications. I got forms for/applied for/put my name and number down for about 13 jobs. Have to get those completed and sent off...cross your fingers!! I want a job! I can work 4 days a week and I want to work maybe 2 or 3 of them.

So I think that's about all the news for me. I hope everybody is well, haven't talked to Wendy in ages, or Col either actually. I see from Col's journal that she's doing okay which is good to hear. And Jessie, I miss you already!!!

College Girl! [05 Sep 2005|07:59pm]
[ mood | happy ]

I promised a few people a report about college so here it is, at HW and LJ. I was really nervous, and I seriously did not get any sleep at all last night. I also went through from 9pm last night to 4:15pm today without any food. But, I made it through my first day.

My folks dropped me off and I was very nervous but feeling pretty good in my slim looking outfit and all, and I went in and found my tutor. Lots of paperwork, met my group. There's somewhere to spend lunchtimes and breaks, a room on our floor where you can hang and drink or eat or whatever, which is cool. There's 8 guys on my course I believe, and me. The tutors are really cool, and the guys are all pretty quiet. One exception is Paul who is a total sweetie and we were talking and hanging all day it was very nice. He was introducing me to people and stuff.

I saw a guy I liked from my school called Liam and he asked me for my MSN and stuff, because we'd forgotten to exchange last time we saw each other at school.

I did the tests they gave us and did better than everyone else apparently, not to brag. Level 1 or 2 was expected and I'm at Level 3 already. I think it's going to be fun, especially with a Star Wars fan like Paul there too.

The library is cool has Greenday CDs to rent and all sorts. I'm really quite excited about all of it! Wow!

good day today, just got my hair cut and it looks pretty good. shame my skin isn't great still. i also am getting my eyebrows done on thursday, thank god. i look like clarissa, lol. got a couple of things in town but nothing important. found a women's magazine with pics of hot guys in their underwear...it was purchased for ian somerhalder but it has some other hotties lol. such a perv, i am...

peanut butter cookie for breakfast/lunch which was heavenly. omg. and homemade lemonade. then i think a baked potato for dinner. a very lazy day today, and probably tomorrow too. but hey, that's what weekends were for.

that, and watching lots of one tree hill...

Better... [26 Aug 2005|03:11pm]
[ mood | okay ]

i feel better today. quite a lot better, although still disappointed in myself. i'm always sort of self loathing, to a degree, i'm never really all that happy with myself. but who is? i'm self critical and people say i come over as confident, but i'm really the opposite. oh well!

i spent the morning out on my course, and one of the advisors took me over to the college and i went to meet with the head of the IT department to see if i could still get in to college. i could, but what i was worried about, her and my advisor too, was that it might be too much for me, all of a sudden, going back to full time learning after being out for so long, especially doing my course plus retaking maths and english. so i'm taking a more basic course, with a different qualification in english and maths, which is easier, and then that leads to the course i was going to take. it's going to be easier for me to adjust and cope with. it'll be better for my health as that was a concern. i have a meeting next week to talk about it some more, but i feel less stressed.

i'm still very annoyed with myself, and truth be told i still feel like i should be better.

but, that said, i have come to realise that it wasn't because i'm stupid i tanked my exams, it was because i'd been ill and missed school. it wasn't really my fault.

thanks for the comments...

[ mood | weird ]

Okay, oink.

Oh my god, I watched LOST episode 4 last night at 11 with my Dad, oh it was good. Probably the worst so far, but still really good. I logged on briefly afterwards and everyone was talking about it lol. I love Jack and Kate, they are so meant to be together.

Off to watch One Tree Hill (new episode tonight) and Gilmore girls in a while woo. Lazy day, again. I found out yesterday I get my GCSE results next week, argh. I got 2 Fs, me thinks. Out of 2 possible grades, both are fails. Damn.

Can't wait for my friend to come and stay :) And there's a gig on Saturday that I absolutely can't wait to go to.

Someone was showing pictures from a couple of weeks ago yesterday, and I took the ones of me out of there and threatened to throw them in to the river. Is that bad?? Apparently yes, but I don't think so. They make me look disgusting...

Today I had a great day and am very happy, hence the effort put in to this post. (Yes, oh my god, it's actually in capitals! Eek!) Had fun doing the usual thing, the course that a few of you know about. And then I met up with my best friend and we had a great time just shopping and we got a drink and stuff it's just always fun to be around her. We've been best friends since we were 10.

I bought 1 coke, 2 lemonades, a One Tree Hill DVD of the pilot, dirt cheap, as I hadn't seen it and figured at that price it was worth it to cure future boredom, and that pretty much used up all the spare coins I had laying around, but it was worth it. I was quite surprised how much I had, from left over bus fare.

Didn't break the note my Mom loaned me this morning, which was good. For once I owe her absolutely nothing.

Feeling pretty good, I even had a pastie for lunch, and most of you who know me know that right now I must be feeling pretty okay to do that. I was wearing one of the 2 pairs of jeans I found in the loft yesterday, that I'd never been thin enough to wear. Guess what, I am thin enough, woo! I am the thinnest I have ever been. And yet I still manage to look like an elephant next to said best friend. Oh well.

Okay, I'm done. :)

blahhhh [16 Aug 2005|06:15pm]
not good mood at all. in fact, lilly is in an extremely crappy mood. she wants to hurt and/or break something. she is also apparently slightly crazy, reading back on this post. not good, not good. while i am dreading college, it has to be better than spending days feeling like this. i'm supposed to actually be doing things tomorrow, fun things, but i still just feel like blah. so most people are advised to stay away from the lilly today. i feel low this week, so just stay away. not that anyone reads this. thankfully. i ate a kitkat needing chocolate. didn't cheer me up, just made me feel guilty. bah. needed to vent. oh can i just add, sarah sucks? thanks.

[ mood | creative ]

I absolutely love The OC, I'm hooked. I've been watching it for ages but I'm even more in to it at the moment with the books and the Obsess Completely site and all. So, I made some icons. They aren't very good ones, but meh.

As usual, comment if taken and comment and credit if used.

[ mood | happy ]

Wow. It has been so long since I last updated this thing. I actually started a Xanga site because all my Higher Ground friends have them, but I like livejournal better. Hopefully my Higher Ground friends will come and visit me here. *Looks at Heather, Matt, Kater, Jess, Britt etc, etc...*

Woozie has graduated! Congratulations Woozie!

Things are going extremely well for me at the moment. I had a rough patch about a week and a half ago but one of my good friends helped me through it. I'm having a lot of fun hanging with Jess and going to gigs, there have been some amazing ones.

And I'm running my favourite singers official site soon - how cool?

I've finished school forever, and I'm ecstatic. Can't wait to start college.

Am now a size 14 instead of an 18, buying lots of cool clothes. Getting an iPod Mini soon I hope!

I'm enjoying myself posting on the Higher Ground sites right now! OMG, the OC Finale rocked my socks! I actually cried, gah!

Later Gaters!
