instead of finding someone to blame


just got in, really early considering i've been out.
my social life is all or nothing. been out two nights in a row now.
last night was probably better, cos i went to see The Book Club. and it was amazing. like. just amazing.
then tonight we went out for my mate's birthday. was lovely to see everyone and have a laugh. ended up getting wine even though i really really hate it. anyway, work in the morning. not looking forward to it. been doing the same job for 4 years. eurgh.

i have things to look forward to, but after my last exam. which is just over a week away. the time twixt now and then is more daunting than the prospect of the exam. which is gonna be so hard. argh, can't motivate myself at all.

might try looking for another job. dunno. the main road between my crappy village and town is gonna be shut almost completely for 16 weeks starting very soon. so getting into town is gonna be a nightmare. which means if i manage to get a job, i might not be able to get to it. bonus of working in the village at the moment, is lack of travel costs.

hmm. dunno why i am posting. boredom and procrastination once again.
hope i can sleep tonight
wish some people would bloody respond to texts

this is just like one long stream of consciousness. okay bye!

painted faces congregate

this morning I changed the layout of my blog and stuff.
only slightly. and only because all I ever seem to do is procrastinate.
considering how scared I was before my two exams last week, not quite sure why I haven't been working for my exams tomorrow and thursday.

considering selling two of my arctic monkeys promo posters. got them about 18 months ago, maybe? anyway, they're promos for Fluorescent Adolescent and Brianstorm. they're pretty cool, particularly the FA one. but I'm trying to cut down on how much they dominate my wall space. I couldn't possibly bring myself to sell my promo cds really. there's specific reasons why I have each one, but the easiest to part with would be my Teddy Picker one. don't know why i'm mulling this over cos i've no intentions of putting them on eBay. i keep watching My Propeller promos then forgetting when they're ending, so i've missed out on about 3 now :S and the last one went pretty cheap which is a kick in the teeth.

i've also been purchasing more vinyl than strictly necessary, recently. i don't have anything to play it on, yet i'm 'fascinated' with collecting it. i can't afford to keep doing this, as it seems like such a colossal waste of money in hindsight.

in the middle of my AS levels at the moment, well 2 down, 3 to go.
not really much going on at the moment, this weather is pretty beaut.
i should be revising right now, but i'm procrastinating in the living room cos the heat is unbearable upstairs.

its quite long :S and the order isn't really that great, i've just tried to fit the songs together from memory of how they end etc. tried to put it in some vague order, start with heavy, fast paced-ish guitar music, then into more dance, fun music then into slower, more acoustic based songs.

there we go. Ta Ra X
