I'm making this friends only
Why? Because, i'm making a resolution to use this more as a journal than i already do, which should result in more personal posts.

And well...because i don't want just anyone reading what i write here, seeing as i rant quite a bit, and you never know who could be reading it and know exactly what i mean.

So yeah, basically just comment to be added. I don't bite =)

I saw this somewhere a while ago and thought it was a really cute idea :)

This post is full of quotes that really moved me. Some made me laugh, some made me really think and some of them are just abosolutely brilliant!

Please don't comment as this is purely a collection for my personal use!

Current Music: I'm Not That Girl (Reprise) - Wicked Soundtrack

This is Painting Stations, the first single from a band called Vinyl Jacket who are pretty damn awesome. Jack, the bassist is in my maths class and although I barely know him he's a pretty cushty/hilarious guy. Anyway, the band have been getting a fair bit of local recognition for a while now, and it's getting to the point where they've started getting some national exposure, being featured on BBC Introducing show's and doing more and more local radio interviews & sessions. The reason I'm posting it now though is because the single is being played on the Chris Moyles show on Radio 1 tomorrow morning which is kinda awesome, so if you like it whack on the radio at 8.45am tomorrow.

I know this isn't the most exciting of posts, but hey, they're a local band who deserve every bit of the recognition they're getting so I figured I'd spread the word a little.

Things that have already happened!

♥ LONDON! Which was pretty awesome but insanely tiring!
♥ Bonfire Night! Our town always has an awesome bonfire and fireworks display on the nearest Saturday (this year the 6th November) and we (A Batida da Rua) always end up drumming which is immense fun cos we just cover ourselves & the drums in glowsticks and make a lot of noise while the bonfire gets lit!


♥ QEHS music concert. Choir always does something in them (usually a musical medley in the autumn one) and this year we did the lion king! However unlike most years, Andy agreed to do something with A Batida, and decided he wanted to get the choir singing Barasuayo! Thankfully I got out of singing it cos I was drumming! But it meant it was easiest for the choir to perform straight after ABDR had, which meant a mega quick removal of drum, strap and hoodie, and running back on stage suitably boiling and looking like a twat in white trousers! It was all awesome though!
♥ Starting Carols in choir. So essentially the first choir rehearsay after the concert, we ALWAYS start carols which is absolutely awesome and involves an insane scramble to get to the book box first and not end up with one (newer) big copy, one (older) small copy and one with no pages (there are 3 books). And seeing as I'm quite skilled at the fighting for books part of it, we ended up with nice new copys :D So excited for christmas now though!

Things which are happening soon!
♥ LEEDS! On Wednesday. It's a departmental open day with an informal interview which I hope will be cushty, but I'm not too panicked about.
♥ PARAMORE! On Thursday :) So excited to see Paramore (and my friend Emma) again and it should be amazing and I can't wait!
♥ HARRY POTTER! On Friday. Tickets booked for me, Nazz and Tom. I'm excited but sad about the end being almost here, and I really hope they haven't ruined the book! But whatever happens, it's cinema & popcorn so it's all good :D

Things which are happening in the future!
♥ Sheffield and Manchester open days
♥ Pendulum
♥ People coming back from uni for Christmas

♥ Geneva trip to CERN with Physics :)

So I know I have at least a couple of Radio 1 fans/geeks (or past fans anyway) on my flist, so I was just wondering whether anybody had any idea where I could find any downloads of literally anything with Colin Murray on! I MISS THAT MANS VOICE! ♥♥

If you don't care about human rights at all, or the situation in Burma, then please watch it anyway...it has Christopher Eccleston in it, and then at least you're aware of the situation! :)
