Then I actually spent something like six hours in Cholo, watching football and talking. It was really good fun. A day worth remembering.

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??

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.

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