Ugh,  I'm having such a shit time at the moment - Bad depressive relapse, which makes revising for my exam on Monday really hard plus failing to get into a PGCE course in September, despite having two interviews and having my psychiatrist postpone my appointment for two months when I really need to talk about upping my meds.... well you get the idea.

So recommend me a album to download, I may not be able to afford to buy anything but downloading music off the net can replace retail therapy.  I'm into alternative/rock/metal but am open-minded and like a wide variety of music.

So Friday was bridge_troll 's birthday. In my role as perfect girlfriend I provided many presents, a hone-made pizza cake and skeleton card.





On Saturday we ventured into Wolverhampton to go to the art gallery, which has recently opened its pop art wing. I was pleasentry suprised, the gallery is a lot bigger than I expected and there was a lot of comtempory art, the highlight being a large exhibition by a Korean artist called Choi Jeong Hwa. His work was a mixture of East and West, old and new.

 I haven't posted here in ages. Hmmm, I'll try and change that, I keep write entries in my head which never get typed up!

For bridge_troll as I get the impression he was sad that my head was blocking his DVD collection for people to admire.

Although they are mainly bridge_troll 's, I still like to think I make a valid contribution.

Every sunday Rob's nan comes over and has sunday dinner with Rob's parents and Rob and me. This fine apart from her conversation skills and the fact she repeatably forgets to bring her hearing aid. She delights in telling us what her neighbours have or have not been doing and who is ill/dead

Today we learnt about:
What her neighbour Joan has been up to (apparently Joan has accused her friend's biscuits for making her bad)
What Robert who lives 2 doors down hasn't done (not mended his window for 3 weeks)
About whatever shit reality program she has been watching.
About someone who has a scar on his liver because he has two liver opperations/examinations
And about the man across the road who has prostate cancer (but we should keep that under our bonnets cos its not commen knowledge)

Every week we have endure this thrilling conversation while shouting and repeating anything we want to say to her.

Aaah the fun of sunday dinners.

I got my coursework results back today. For all my essays I have got As (which is equivilent to a 1st), it was only my group work which my grades were lower, which I knew about anyway. This means for the 4 modules I did I have 3 As and 1 B. I am so happy, I worked really hard this year and it has really paid off especially since 6 out of the 8 modules count towards my finial degree.

I'm back at uni on tuesday with fun new modules to study. These are: Vietnam in America, Sex and the City, Gender issues in Media and film and The Enlightenment.

To be honest things have been too insane and busy for me to update on here. Uni work has been keeping me so occupied that I haven't had time to do anything else. The first semester of this year has ended which mean I have a few weeks off to get my life sorted. This meanly means trying to tidy up, put crap on ebay and play Lego Star Wars 2, you'll be pleased to know that it is Lego Star Wars which I am concentrating my efforts on.

For those who care, the last time I properly posted I was having problems cos I was off my medication, well I am back on it now and am able to function like an ordinary human being again. It is sad that I need these anti-depressants but I'm glad I have something which allows me live a normal life and to cope with things. I am also glad that now I am back on the medication Rob's tattoo of the devil has stopped looking at me in a scary way.

Christmas and New Year were good, you know apart from the 3 essays I had to write, especially the "fun" one on Britain's and Argentina's relationship between 1880 & 1914. I know so much about it now and yet I cannot find any use for this information.

My current obsessions are:
Mac make-up (so pretty eyeshadows)
Hotel chocolate (the nicest chocolate in the world, everyone must try their 100% dark chocolate it is, um an experience!)
James Bond films (Rob is buying the whole collection which meant that I watched my first James Bond film the other day)
Prison Break  (Meap, Second Series of Prison Break has started on channel 5. One of the best and definately the most stressful TV shows ever)
Current Music:
