January 29, 2006


Can you guys believe it?? Today I did something that I have never done for Warwick before. I scored a goal in an actual football match. It’s such an adrenalin rush it’s unbelievable. Of course we then went on to win the match 3 – 1, which is also always really nice.
Then I actually spent something like six hours in Cholo, watching football and talking. It was really good fun. A day worth remembering.

football in skirts…anyone??

I was standing there by the bus stop, waiting for the bus in the freezing cold, when it suddenly came to me why football is considered a masculine sport. I feel a bit stupid now that I didn’t realise something that is so obvious before then. It is quite simple really…it is because we have decided to play football in shorts instead of prancing around in a skirt, like girls do in so many other sports that are considered ‘girly’, eg. netball, hockey, tennis and even lacrosse. I’m pretty certain that they play baseball in skirts as well. Indeed, guys find less amusement watching us play as we don’t have a skirt hoisted up around our waist every time we go in for a slide tackle; neither do our shorts get caught in our underwear so that the whole world can see frankly too much (à la Anna Kournikova).
Myself, I have never understood the practical aspects of doing sports in a skirt, which just leaves me with two questions…who's idea was it and, more importantly, why??

a small white lie isn't always that bad

Oh crap!! I have now been sitting here, by my desk, since five this afternoon in an attempt to do some work. Got a test tomorrow in mathematics of random events, but revision is just not going well at the moment. Why?? Well, I’ve had a few quite eventful days and I’ve been busy so I haven’t had any chance to reflect over them, until now. (Not that I want to think about it now, but my brain refuses to listen to common sense and just get on with work.) So I thought that maybe if I write something down, it’ll let me get on with what I have to do.
My first thought goes to that drunken, old man who tried to touch me up on the bus on Thursday, and why I didn’t just tell him to fuck off. Amazing how some sad and perverted nobody can leave one feeling completely powerless…
My second thought is of my ‘sort-of- boyfriend’ with whom I apparently have a very complicated relationship with, yet still choose to remain monogamous to. Yeah, we all know that no such person exists, but a small white lie is not such a bad thing (yeah I know, it got to be a rather complicated white lie because I'm not that good at not telling the truth) when you simply don’t want to tell the poor guy that you’re just not interested, especially not after he has bought you several drinks in Ikon, because you are “skint” and was forced to go there because your best friend liked his friend (honestly, I did say no to start of with but the guy basically forced me to accept drinks despite my obvious reluctance to do so). This, by the way, meant that I had to dance with a guy who looked like Frodo and two other guys, none who had what it took to even make me slightly interested. Harsh, but true.
Lastly, the football game today, which was a laugh right up till the point when Ana probably broke her ankle and had to be taken to hospital in an ambulance. Even though a few of us wanted to carry on playing, the match was called off and we made plans to play them again, which I really look forward to.
Ok, right, I am going to do some work now.

The colour purple

Shockingly enough I’m not at Score today. Well I’m not at Score for the second week in a row, and I doubt that I’ll be showing my face there at all this term. Why?? Well, I’m simply tired of being tired and unfortunately for me, and for the union, I have my only nine o’clock on a Thursday and I plan to make every single one.
So I had no match today and I didn’t go to Score. So what was there for me to do but to go to Birmingham for some shopping?? It was good; I had some sushi and I bought myself a new bag. Oh, and I decided to dye my hair as well. My friend and I were a bit bored and it seemed like such a good idea to dye it a nice bright plum colour. Yup, that does mean purple. It’s not too obvious, apart from it being purple, but it’s something different.

I haven’t been this nervous before an exam in a really long time; possibly because I haven’t actually known the stuff as well as I did this time. When saying to someone that you have finished revising you lay yourself open to all sorts comments were you to do badly in the actual exam. Which, of course, is what I’m worried about – that I won’t do well, not what people would say, because I really want to get a good mark. However, all this nervous ‘energy’ got very quickly converted into contempt towards a guy who served me tea in Viva.

Guy 1: “Women’s football eh??”

Me: “Yes.”

Guy 1: “Who ever said girls can’t play football??”

Me: “Hmm…”

Guy 1: “So what position do you play??”

Me: “Midfield at the moment.”

Guy 2: “Both guys and girls then…”

I really don’t get what people’s problem is!! I even get crap like that from my brothers, which makes for very awkward questions from my mum. Please, just let it rest; there’s only so many times you can joke about it.

So anyway, rant over. The exam was ok; ok as in difficult but doable. However, it seems as though most my friends found the exam impossible, which makes me worry whether I got the questions completely wrong or maybe for once I'm actually not that bad at something. Oh well, I’ll find out soon enough.

Follow-up to i told myself i wouldn't do this this year from Two beds and a coffee machine

So…I didn't really last long. I ended up missing my first lecture of this term because I drank stupid amounts of vodka yesterday. Yes, very stupid amounts, say half a litre of Smirnoff Black lable. Poured my heart out to a friend, who wasn't half as drunk as I was, and told him some stuff I really shouldn't have told him. Can't really remember exactly what I said so… I couldn't do any work today because of a hangover, a really bad hangover. Sometimes it is just unbelievable how incredibly stupid I am. (Please, no one comment on that one.) So I'm going to bed now so that I can be up for my nine o'clock tomorrow.
