Aww bless her heart! Uni Mum (aka Saijai my domestic assistant) is back from Thailand! First of all she wanted a hug, which was quite hilarious because she literally comes up to my stomach area. But then she gave me this little wristband bracelety thingy-ma-bob. (“Wristband Bracelety thingy-ma-bob” is a name trademarked by John in 2006, All Rights Reserved. So hands off yer name-thieving bastards). So nice of her, eh? I officially have the best domestic assistant ever!
Today, I went to see my tutor to confirm that I can leave a week early to take on this job I have for the entire duration. It’s £400, so hell I’d rather be earning than sat around doing bugger-all for my last week here. It turns out that I can, he’ll just Email my exam results for me. Derek Holt’s a grand feller, and a damned fine lecturer! Enough sucking up…
Walking back was quite fun, if knackering because I had to keep up with my chum who was wearing rollerblades. He tried to get the speedo on the road adjacent to the maths building to get him going over 20mph (what does the law say with regards to speeding by using rollerblades?), but it didn’t register him. As such, he just got many people to laugh out loud at him :D.
Ohh, one last thing. I got a copy of TrackMania Nations, a game which I’ve really wanted to play because it featured in some gaming world cup thing (I forget the precise details). Nice little game, actually! And I’m finally getting reasonably good at CounterStrike, even if it’s taken a ridiculously long time to be able to instinctively shoot the enemy and to leave my team in tact…

Just saw another blog entry with a picture of the view from their window. Just so I can annoy that person a bit more, I’ll show you the best campus window view ever:
You can just about see the lake, right? ;)
Thanks to the kind fellow who pointed out that you can use regular HTML in these blogs

I should probably update you all on my wonderful if boring life :)
I came back from t'weekend, to find that my dad is moving out AGAIN. I'm so fooked off right now, the atmosphere is awful and it's been like this for over a week now, thus I've got a slight excuse for not doing quite so much revision. I think. That's my excuse anyways, and I'm sticking by it.
While my dad was telling me, I got a text message from this girl that people were trying to set me up with last year. I got bored (night before Feeder – see previous entry – and I was in my room all alone without half my stuff) and so sent a message randomly to see what was happening with her etc., you see. Yeah, I'm a sad sad person! Naturally, I never got around to replying to her. Shame, but to worry, nothing would have come of it anyway I'm sure.
I also have job #1 lined up for the summer. Data inputter, baby! £840 for four weeks of retaining my sanity. You can't complain at £7 an hour, even if at times I literally wanted to commit suicide (turning emo, is it called?). It's inputting where every single mark was gained/lost in a year of pupils at various schools, i.e. I type in hunderds of thousands of 1s and 0s… If you've finished your exams, do the uni let you go home? I heard somewhere that they don't, which kinda annoys me because if they don't then I'll only be able to do a couple of weeks rather than all four.
I should start looking for job #2 in a little while too, I guess. Hrm.
My holiday has been practically ruined now. Grr. Not long before we're back. Not fair. I bet my dad moves out the day before we go back, knowing my luck.
Ahh well. I'll stop boring you now.
