I have 2 tickets to see Oasis this wednesday at the Rose bowl stadium in Southampton. I don't have anyone to go with! Anyone fancy going? I will be coming down from Sheffield so I can collect you on the way.
When I say I have two tickets I mean I bought two tickets, they have as of yet failed to materialise. SMS Ltd that deliver them for SeeTickets don't know whats happened to them. I phoned them on Sat and they first told me they'd been sent to the City of Manchester Stadium and then after putting me on hold I think he just pretended they'd gone to the real venue. Phoned them today and she said they'd been signed for on Sat at the address I'd asked them to be delivered to. I know for sure they haven't so now a manager is looking into it for me.
But yeah anyway, if anyone fancies it then get in touch otherwise its me going on my lonesome.

I don't know whether its the heat or what but I was just reading through the recent blog entries and I noticed that the last few I'd read where by Amy and I thought it was strange that she'd posted so many entries in a row. I then realised I was actually just reading her blog, I must have come to it from the recent entries and then started reading it. I'm going mad!!!!
In other news; exams are now over which is nice. I only have a weeks work left before I have 2 and a half weeks holiday, I really must plan what I'm going to do for it really, general plan is a mini tour of the uk (ideas on a comment please).
It's also that time of year that I don't like a huge amount, moving out; all the hassle of closing gas/elec/ntl accounts, getting deposits back and the nightmare that is getting all my stuff home. Things are a little easier this year though as I am staying around here, living on campus till sept and then I move into my new house in Leam. Consequently I dont need to take as much stuff back to Sheffield, just the stuff I don't need on campus.

I know people are forever moaning about reading angsty post or posts abouts people lives but to be honest I don't really care,
Yes that does just finish mid-sentence because I started this entry about 4 hours ago, wrote the above and then was invited over to friends and she cheered me up no end, it was just what I needed. Life still isnt amazing but its still worth living, it was beforehand anyway just a bit less then now. I'm refusing to blog about lack of revision and failing my exams so I am going I'm going to end my entry here.

That's right folks, I am currently at my sheffield home. I never really know whether to call it 'home', Leam is my home now even if the house I am in is going to change a bit. I suppose I should say I'm at my parents, sounds very grown up. Anyway I'm rambling… I'm at home to put my car back together and hopefully drivie it back to Leam tomorrow in time for work. Its been in bits since last sat when we took the gearbox out because the clutch was knackered. Now the gearbox needs putting back where it came from and it needs doing before 3pm tomorrow otherwise i'll have to borrow my mums car again and it will have been a semi-wasted journey.
Anyway best be off to bed as I have to get an early start on it, wish us luck…

No, I'm not about to try and sell you a Honda, I'm not even quite sure where the title came from. Its was a random thought I think, I was briefly thinking about ideas for my own website. The ideas were getting stronger in my mind and then all of a sudden my mind jumped to thinking about wild ambitions and the power of dreams and thus this blog entry became.
What was I thinking? Well I know we can keep our Warwick blogs when we leave uni (if we join the WGA) but I would like to have my own independant one, thats more than just a blog, it could be my life in blog format. It's a grand idea, one that would require a bit of design work to implement but I am technically able to achieve it. Then there's actually bothering to update it regularly, something which I can manage if I put my mind to it.
I just need to make sure that when I make the site I don't make it all dark and goth-like, it needs to be light and colourful. I don't mean glary pink or anything like that, more like light and airy like my blog. I would steal the design from this blog but I think the uni might have something to say about me stealing their designs! Any ideas would be greatly welcomed!

Blogs are very powerful, aside from spreading humour and peoples darkest emotions they have more purposes. Their latest feat has been to find me a house in Leamington to live in next year, and it gets better, its with people I at least vaguely know! All because I blogged about not really been bothered to look for a place, less then 24 hours after posting I received a comment offering me a house, brilliant!
Blogs! I salute you!

I am in a really good mood at the mo! I watched a DVD tonight; What a girl wants, its a typical chick flick but it made me feel good. The icing on the cake though was me discovering my best friend Sarah is still my friend, knowing that means so much to me.
I don't really have much else to be happy about though, I haven't started revision yet and I really need to, I still haven't tidied my room despite my numerous efforts to do it. I need to get back into the habit of going to the gym too, I think I am slowly improving my eating habits too, although I seem to have had a lot of home made pizza lately.
I also need to sort out what I'm doing next year with regards to living arrangements, I have a place on campus in Redfern with the people I currently live with but I really want to stay in Leamington for various reason, that means finding some people to live with here, hopefully it shouldnt be too difficult but it requires effort and I am feeling very lazy at the mo, the prospect of new house mates doesnt really appeal but it something I'll have to deal with as I definitely can't afford my own place!
