I wish Amazon would stop sending me emails telling me to trade in books I’ve previously bought. I bought the books to read and keep, not to trade back!
All of this work is starting to catch up with me, but it’s worth it in the end! I started my second piece for my final major project today (picture to come) and I wanted to get as much as that done as possible, so I ended up staying in the studio until 6:45pm, I would’ve stayed later but it takes an hour and a half to get home, and I need to do some work at home as well! I can do this… I just need to think of the rest I’ll get once it’s all done and the grade I’m aiming for.
I went to the Olympic torch celebrations after university today in Stoke-on-Trent; it was only up the road! It was a good night,!
If I see one more trailer for Prometheus I’m going to scream. I don’t need to see the whole film to want to see any film. I remember the trailer for the original Alien was just the fucking egg, the title and the words ”In space no one can hear you scream.” and I was SOLD. These days people want to spoil everything before we even get to the theater.
Okay, rant done.
And get off my lawn.
Agreed! It’s disappointing going to the cinema to see a film and thinking “I’ve already seen this part” for approximately half of the film. On another note, I really want to see Prometheus.
This week is the final push, and for the final piece for my final major project I’ve decided to create two large ink drawings/paintings. Now, time is an issue because the paper I’m working on is 1.5m wide and 2.4m high… preeetty big. I can do this!
This weekend has been lovely (apart from certain realisations, but I’m ok with those now). The weather has been glorious, I could get used to the sun and heat. I don’t know why so many British people complain when it’s warm and when it’s cold; can’t please them. The family and I had a barbaque on Saturday courtesy of moi, as we didn’t have a barbaque I went and bought a cheap little one from B&M for £8.99, it does the job! I made red chilli and honey mustard chicken skewers with onions and peppers, which were lovely.
Today I helped my mum down at our allotment, I weeded and broke up the soil ready to plant various things. My mum’s currently building two greenhouses down there as well, they’re looking great! I should be going to bed now, as I have university in the morning and its the “last push” to get this massive piece done for friday.
As I tend to buy a lot of art supplies on ebay, naturally I decided to buy some more oil pastels, and I ended up bidding on, and winning a box of 36 oil pastels for… £0.06! 6 pence! Bargain =)
I love ebay.
It is never too late to turn on the light. Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn’t depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn’t depend on how long you’ve held on to the old view.
When you flip the switch in that attic, it doesn’t matter whether its been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades.
The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn’t see before.

It’s always lovely to find out your friends, including your best friend, all went on a trip without even inviting you. Then from this realising that your friends might not be as good as you first thought, and that you are just the “back up”, or the last option, even for your supposed best friend. I’ve realised I may not always be invited out because they want me there, but because it suits or benefits them in some way; the kicker is this includes my best friend. This isn’t the first time it’s happened either. Have to admit, I’m feeling really crappy right now.
I recieved my first ever anonymous message - It turned out to be spam… oh well. I guess that’s better than recieving some of the abuse I’ve seen anon’s send to people!
