Don't Look Now

I could quite happily shut the world out for weeks and not realise the time has gone by. I have my music, my books, my grey's. Though when we stop and take a step back into the real world we find how much those people in our lives whether it's the bus driver, friends or the doctor - how much we just need to have them there. Whether we have feelings or not, human's definitely weren't meant to be alone. We don't know where are lives are going to go. Nor do we know who is going to cross them. Life just is. There is pain. There is joy. Joy is pain and pain is joy. We just have to ride on through. Responsibility changes everything.

Dirt Off Your Android

This is quite possibly one of my favourite album covers ever; the Thrills' Teenager.
Also, think everyone should have a listen of 'Jaydiohead'. Serrrrrrrrrrious !

Finally Woken

"Today's the first day of the rest of your life."

I nearly always wake up thinking it is a completely different time and day from what it actually is! Today was partial confusion thanks to the birds dancing about on the roof above my room. As much as I love them, I wish they'd stop so I could try sleeping past 7:30am. Having done a long, long 42 hour stint with the doom of coursework hanging over this week I feel very sleep deprived for the first time in a while. At least the work was finally done :) Can't believe how fast things are moving at the moment, it's nearly April already so lots of birthdays soon to come! I love buying birthday presents, or just generally gifts it's a wonderful feeling.
Literally could listen to MTV Hits, Dance etc. alllll Saturday if I had the time to, but unfortunately I have to get up and do this, that and the other. Let's hope the sun comes out soon, I love the warm glow and smiles :)

Literature Lovers

Why on Earth do I always leave my deadline-work till the last minute?
This habit clearly needs to be broken. Well, I say that but I also knows it's not going to happen. Completely hanging today for the Geography trip, definitely NOT GOOD. Though on the plus side sussed out plenty of nice cafes and which ones are are a total rip-offs for lattes. Oh and we saw the cutest owl ever called Misty :)
Thermos of coffee at the ready, memory stick in, all nighter for the deadline tomorrow here we comeeeeee !

Decided today that the best websites are those that make you laugh in whatever way possible. They entertain. Which is possibly why sites such as Wikipedia, though brilliant aren't really much of a chuckle. Even Google has the ability to make us have a good chuckle every so often.
I think one of my favourites would have to be fml. If I was a doctor I'd probably hand it out as a prescription, sometimes all you need is a bit of heart and you're away!
Currently regretting not going to see Passion Pit and Ellie Goulding perform this week, amazing opportunity missed for the most silly of mistakes and reasons. Reliant on the fact that there will always be other opportunities. Ellie Goulding was the one everyone was going to see - despite poor Passion Pit headlining. Been listening to her since early last year now, so I feel pretty proud and all thanks to my friend Laura. It's great when you know people with similar music tastes to you!
I really need to make up for not frequenting the gym yet this week, time just seems to slip through our fingers. The busy life of being a young happening thing today! Oh lordy, truly have been reading too much W H Auden. But to make it all much better the most gorgeous man was at my bus stop today, hello sexy! It's times like that when you think, 'Yes I haven't checked my appearance all day which was therapeutic until now.' Ah well, one dose of McDreamy coming up! All is welllllll !

Keep Calm and Carry On

That would be Stereophonics current new album :)
Saw them last night and they were absolutely brilliant. Just moment after moment. I've been to a lot of gigs over the past few years but that one topped them all off. Well worth both money and the 6 month wait!
The arena was completely packed but I still think we had the best view going. Shame really that the light show was just so fantastic that my phone camera couldn't cope. Lack of photos is made up in the lovely dark green tour t-shirt I got! Makes up for it by the power of a thousand.
I don't know if it's just me that always finds after a concert that you suddenly find you have to listen to anything and everything by that band - whatever you can get your hands on. A bit like an end of season sale in your favourite shop, just minus the scary female bargain warriors.
I know that I definitely got that vibe after Foals, Athlete, Franz Ferdinand and Editors haha. Actually thinking about it the support bands were all pretty good too - I think we fell a little bit in love with Glaswegian band Hip Parade, cheeky little chats with the crowd and having to remember to speak slowly for the majority of people who couldn't understand his strong accent. Brilliant.
