Studying…

I haven’t updated in ages, so maybe I should share what I’ve been doing.
I’ve actually been studying! What a change. I have 5 weekdays and 5 subjects, doesn’t take a genius to figure out how I decided to do this.
It’s semi working, I did get methods done (mostly…sort of) and I do plan to do English and catch up on the legal studies I didn’t do yesterday.
Yes, I am so freaking fun and exciting right now. Wait ’til exams get closer.
Yep. Cool.
Maybe something fun will happen later this week. Ten bucks say no.
On the other hand, channel GO! is up to episodes of Moonlight I haven’t seen yet. That’s sort of exciting.
Okay I’ll just…go do homework now. Yep.

Don-don-don-don’t hold back

Today was Vania’s 18th birthday, and we had her birthday party at April’s place.

Got there before anyone else did, win. Vania came later on, and got stuff set up. Brought a respektable amount of alcohol so that April can make sex on the beach.

I still snigger when I say that.

Got Singstar set up, and started warming up with a few songs. Bo came, then Bel and Julia, then Li-. We really got into the swing of things and then we played Pass The Mic and that was stupid hard.

April and I did battle on Grace Kelly by Mika. We actually did pretty well. It’s a good song.

Aristarchus, April’s cat, rubbed himself on everyone and everything that came along.

Mimay and Fah- came along much later, and then Lily left. We had ice cream cake, and then just before Vania cut the cake, we (or me) suggested that Vania do a shot before she cuts the cake. April got her a Vodka and Schnapps shot, and Soph yelled “Oh my god, give her a chaser, she’ll die.”

Then April made sex on the beach.

Snigger.

Sang a bit more, Julia and I owned on “Don’t Hold Back” by the Potbelleez (or however you spell their band name) and then started watching 10 Things I Hate About You.

Everyone pretty much left at that point, and then when Vania left, Julia, Bel and I decided to bid our farewells as well.

It was fun, because everytime someone left we sang happy birthday.

Julia sneezed a lot. Like. A lot. I think Bel counted to 12 (?) in a row.

Played Tap Tap Revenge on the train home. Need to download more songs.

Just can’t get a break

I had the most unlucky happening today.
Going to the mock oral I thought I’d get Spanna’s mom. No. Instead I got the teacher I had last year, you know, the teacher whom I mouthed off to all last year. Who, at the end of the year said, “I’m so glad I don’t have to teach you anymore.” And I said, “I’m glad I don’t have to be taught by you.”
Woo.
Alex.

SQUIRREL!

Yes, obviously, I have watched UP.

This would’ve taken too long to write on my iTouch so I’m writing it old fashioned way. That is, typing.

I saw UP today at Knox with Eunice, Bianca and Eunice’s bro Jase. Shaz was with us beforehand to eat Nandos. I made Shaz have extra chilli sauce. She couldn’t handle it. Fail curry.

The movie was bloody brilliant. And the Pixar short at the start was incredibly cute and really got you into the mood for the movie.

It was also incredibly sad. The plotline is very heart-driven and actually very touching. I admit, I may have teared at one bit where Carl’s house was on fire.

And yes, the Squirrel joke is still the funniest. Actually, no, the funniest gag was Alpha, who had a squeaky chipmunk voice. If you don’t get that, go watch it!

iTouched U!

Well, I don’t know how obvious this is but I am writing my first blog from my new iTouch.
It is actually pretty damn hard and slow, but I’m still learning. And, unlike Dom, I’m still striving for perfect grammar and speeling etc. (That was on purpose…)
And, unlike Dom, I can’t do this anywhere; I have to have wi-fi connection nearby.
Okay, that’s all for now. This is fucking hard annoying.
Alex.
P.S. Thank you to all those who pitched in money. I am very happy!
