Day 197

Heyy everyone, I know, another late one, and it won't be very long either.. So sorry!

Got up, walked to the station, got caught behind the slowest walker EVER. Got to school, English (poetry), Law (Magistrate visit), free period, History (drinking and WLA AND firebell) and then English again in the afternoon, which was the discussion of tree sex. Mm.

Got home, watched a SERIOUSLY tense episode of Deal or No Deal with Sam and Harry, and, on one of the adverts, y'know, where the skin 'breathes' and there are all those naked people being skin follicles? Yeahh. Well, one of them looked to be rather well endowed.. :o

Theatre again tonight, and, yes, that went very well, had a good laugh with everyone in the dressing room as well, and, here I am, gotta bit of stuff to sort out, and then I'm done!

Toodles.. <3

Day 196

Again, I find myself writing this before I'm back out at the theatre again this evening.

Matthew just went 'blomblomblomblomb...blomb' and asked me to let you all know.

Today was a marked improvement on yesterday, I must say. I'm now typing with one hand as Matthew is giving me a 'wawaxing Chinase nize han-massage' (I relaxing Chinese Nice hand massage..)

OK, he's stopped now. So, yes, today. I got up, noticeably late, got driven to the station and hopped on the train, most lethargically I must say.. Had Law, looked at Parliamentary Sovereignty, then History, looked at the economy and all in the Great War, then a silent study period (¬_¬) and then English before lunch. Well, this English lesson was pretty much an hour of relaxed work with Kevin as our special guest! My OCD kicked in with the ol' pen disassembly and reassembly..!

I came home, had a bit of a sleep after watching Silk from last night (which was AWESOMES :D) and, yes, had some dinner, and I'm off out momentarily!

I gotta say, sitting here, looking out the window with my window open, the sun is setting, it's warm, well, warm enough, what I'd LOVE to do right now is be sat in the middle of Hyde Park or something with sandals and shorts, a picnic and just be all like. Summer-y? I think, I can't wait for summer. In case you couldn't tell.

Anyways, toodle you lot.

Day 195

And, here it is. My 200th post. Hoorahh.

Just a shame I'm not more... excited? Dunno why I would be though, but, gawd. It's been a long day, readers. One of those days, y'know. When you could just curl up and lie there for about a fortnight.

I got into school around breaktime, history lesson, note taking and some historiography. English lesson, discussion on totalitarianism and maths meant Newton's Laws. Stayed behind afterwards to go through some of my English essay stuff, and then yeah. Came home, watched Glee, had dinner, back out to the theatre tonight. Hoorah.

Talk to you all later.

Monday, 28 March 2011

Day 194

What a day, eh?! Ooh that rhymes.

"Why don't you.. stay for the night, or maybe a bite, I could show you my favourite obsession.."

Yes, Glee IS on in the background.

I've just come home from another performance at the theatre, and the family and Phoebe came tonight; I hope they liked it!

However, back to more today-sy matters, I went to Reading University for a convention on Higher Education.. and you know what THAT means... PROSPECTUSES!

Yes, I am a prospectus whore. I ended up with 41 of them. They weighed 16kg, well. 2.5 stone. Oww.
But thank you to Paul, Rob and Josh for carrying some of them! :D

Came home, and yeah. You know about my evening!

Sweet Dreams you lot.. <3

Day 193

Evening everyone!

It's been one of those days of seemingly continuous work, because that's pretty much what it has been.

I can honestly say it's been pretty much a complete day of solid essay writing, with a minor excursion every now and again to the garden centre and out on a walk this evening. You can also watch the latest VLOG below..

Or watch it on YouTube! That's about all.. oh. And a nice picture from this evening's walk.

Day 192

I can't believe we're just over a week away from the 200nd day of blogging!

Here's a quick message from my sponsored silence; thank you all again!

Now, the song is called 'Overrated' - by Jacqueline, and I discovered her earlier! She's great. Love to her :)

I wrote essays today; 2 down, 3 to go tomorrow. What a fun weekend I have planned, eh?!

Had a phone conversation with Johanna, drove Matthew to Sam's house... erm. Found a bee in the pocket of my dressing gown which FREAKED ME OUT A LITTLE :|

What else.. erm. Theatre tonight. Once again, of course. But, other than that. Well. Erm. *nothingness*

It's been a bit of an uneventful day actually :o

But, oh well. :) ROLL ON SUNDAY!


Friday, 25 March 2011

Day 191

Hey y'all. Yes, I know. Once again, Me.

Matthew's watching over my shoulder too. >.<

It's been a BLOODY LONG DAY. I got up at like. Quarter to 7 and I've just got home. At 11.

Waste of a day in London, a fun coach journey home with Nick, Laura and Naomi and the others, and then back home for a few minutes before going out to the theatre, before that going very well, going back to meet the parents and then getting a lift home, and here we are.

I'm really tired. But, I shan't go to bed for a while I think yet, what with it being Saturday tomorrow. (Y)

Day 189

OK, so I've had a mind blank on the old essay, so, I thought I'd get down and write a decent post for all your lovely followers :D

I'm thinking of doing one of those 'random 100 facts about me' posts soon.. AND I ALSO HAVEN'T DONE A DECENT YOUTUBE VIDEO IN AGES. So, never fear, there is one coming.. soon. I hope.

Hasn't the weather been lovely?! Like, jeez. It's been lovely. Nice and hot and sunny. Like a tropical island. Just not as sunny. Or hot. Or Nice. OK, so, not like a tropical island. The closest I've got to sipping luxury cocktail out of a coconut is drinking cloudy apple juice out of an M&Ms mug. Pushing the boundaries on life, I know. Bite me.

I've been in a play, did you know? I bet you did. AND not only are my famalam coming to see it, but so are Phoebe and Sarah on Monday, AND the wonderful Alistair on Tuesday! Perhaps even Beckie, though I'm not yet sure..! Now I bet you're all sitting there like. Ooh, Thomas! What do you look like in your costume? Well. Take a peak..

Yes, that is a toilet cistern in the background.

So, tonight is our opening night and I'm REALLY rather excited if I'm honest! It's also only a Wednesday, and you know you have those weeks, where you just feel like it should be Friday already? Yeah. It should be Friday.


I JUST GOT WRITTEN ABOUT ON PETER'S (Pietre? Pierre? Peetor?) Blog, which you can go read over here > Link <

Twitter followers have gone up to 74 now, and I have to say, I'm really getting excited about Twitter, it's so. Nice and friendly :'D - I am yet to have a Twitter hater. *touches wood*

RIGHT. What else. This has been a bit of a nonsensical post, and I must apologise.

Have I promised any shoutouts to anyone? I can't remember. Ermm.. Oh well, the random shoutout goes to Alex Thurston for posting the picture on my Facebook wall the other day congratulating me on 17,000 views of the blog, and, actually, thank you to him and all the rest of you for helping me get there! I must say, I don't like the number 17, so all the help needed to get to 18000 now please! ;D

OK, I think on that, I'll get back to my essay writing before going out and parading around as Taplow. ;P


Tuesday, 22 March 2011

Day 188

Sorry everyone, last night's post didn't publish. At all. After saying it did. So, erm. Sorry!

You're going to have to deal with some very short posts in the weeks to come.. so much going on it's like. ararar. unreal.

But hey ho. Twitter will be a bit more adventurous..



Sunday, 20 March 2011

Day 187

I only just realised, I've now been blogging for more than half a year! Good God. What madness.

I'm gonna have to keep this relatively short. Which now means it's gonna be like. One of the longest ones I've ever done!

First of all; what happened this morning... Oh, erm, I got up, as many of us do after waking up, and I cracked on with a bit more work and research and it was all going rather swimmingly. In fact, it continued to, and then I had lunch, I know, this day just gets more and more exciting!

This afternoon I had to pop down to the theatre for what was an incredibly short tech rehearsal, literally: on stage, off stage, ok, you can go, see you tomorrow! So that was all rather wonderful.

From there, I had a bit of a Sunday drive down to Henley and Sonning and that sort of area, and, although it was hard work, it was a lovely day, and yes. All rather wonderful. I came home, and, well, I haven't done much since, although, I did just sit and play the piano for a bit.. I've decided to try and learn Christian Sinding's Rustle of Spring; which is not as hard as it sounds, so long as you have quick fingers!

Oh, that's what else. Super-Moon last night, I snuck out and got a picture, and it was all rather pretty!

Well, I thought it was anyway!

That's all for now everyone! Oh, can we reach 17000?! Here's hoping! :D


Saturday, 19 March 2011

Day 186

Now, the above photo is what my screen(s) looked like this afternoon when I was keeping so up to date, it was unreal, with what was happening. Gosh. How confusing. :P

I woke up quite early (well, comparatively for a Saturday!) and got on with some work, which, I seemed to do a lot of today. Either working or researching or ordering books, y'know. The normal. (?)

Erm.. I beat my mum at Scrabble tonight... TWICE! Went to look at the moon and take a few photos of it (it's the closest it's coming to the earth for a good many years!)

Took a few photos of the famalam, and then, yes. Here we are.

Not particularly interesting, but my day nonetheless!


Day 185

This picture sums up my day.. on the toilet wall at Oxford University.

"All lawyers are c*nts"
"Arguable either way"
"That's what I'm getting on about, wait"
"Depends on how you define "c*nts*"

As another message out of shot stated: "You know you're at a top university when there's intellectual discussion on the cubicle door!"

Comic Relief tonight.. £74 million raised?! Wow!

Blog properly tonight..!


Thursday, 17 March 2011

Day 184

- Silence -

I can't say much about today other than the fact that I stayed silent for 12 hours from 7am-7pm.

I managed to raise just over £135 from sponsorship, which is completely incredible. And I genuinely can't thank you guys enough, so, I'm giving this post as a dedication to you!



Wednesday, 16 March 2011

Day 183

Do I ever spend any time at home, I hear you ask. The answer is seemingly no!
I just walked in, and here I am, typing away, once again.

This was a Wednesday, in case you didn't know; and off I trudged along with the sound of Adele in my ears to the train station, where I promptly boarded, and (I forgot the word.. AHH yes) disembarked the train, got into school, had a chat, set up for assembly which was then cancelled, went into Law, discussed the opening stages of a Parliamentary law making, proceeded to History where the monarchy was discussed at great length and the foundation of a Royal Family was probed, and then we moved onto the Propaganda machine of the Great War.

After a breaktime full of random dinosaur noises and the absolute desolation of my kindeys, an hours private study period proved wonderfully helpful in reading up opn the Boer War (or as Steve and I refer it to, as: The Boo-er Woo-er. Because we're cool.)

THEN.. had English. Began looking at a poem but it descended into God only knows what sort of conversation. I think, one of the corkers went along the lines of: "It's good, with a little bit of bad. Like raping Joanna Lumley."


Hometime? Oh sure why not. I walked home with the ever gorgeous William. And sorry, I just got a text from a train dwelling, phone calling, theatre going, Rattigan knowing, conference missing, budget sorting, German teacher disciplining BABE which I need to address..

OK; done. Rehearsals tonight.. fun fun fun. Actually it was, treading the boards once again. Another set picture.. this is what the other side of a set looks like through a door.. OOH what cheats!


Tuesday, 15 March 2011

Day 182

I really need a wee.

'Ello people of the internet.

I didn't go in until my first lesson today, which was history.. looking at Mary Seacole and Florence once again, then we looked at the recurrence of rape in Clockwork Orange, the possibility of gay rape, before homosexuality was decriminalized in 1967, a bit more rape, and some old people beating up Alex.
Oh, and curried rice.

And then, pow. That was it. Hometime, Maths was cancelled, so off I popped, came home, did some work, erm.. what else. No, that's about it. It's been a really nice night in! I spoke to Sam earlier and had a bit of a catchup with her, lovely, as always, and, yes!

SPONSOR ME?! Click the banner and you're away!

Oh, if any theatre-goers wondered what the back end of a set looked like and what is beyond closed doors, it's really only this interesting:

Nightnight :) <3

Monday, 14 March 2011

Day 181

'Ello there people :)

I know, it's late again, I've only just got home, so I'll keep it short.

I had a 1 period day today, as well as a driving lesson..

The picture war between William and I continues; don't'cha wish your boyfriend was hot like him..

Scrummy. ;D

Theatre this evening went well, erm, long and tiring slightly, but hey, never mind. :)

I'm sat here on msn talking to Dan, OOH. Happy Birthday to Johanna as well <3

This post has been really bad. >.<

I have a lie in tomorrow as well, but, also, an evening in, so don't worry, I might do something a bit better then!

Until then, go sponsor? :D


Sunday, 13 March 2011

Day 180

We're now under 3 weeks away from day 200! This is exciting; no?

How are we all? Are we well? I do hope so.

Now settle down... you, at the back. Calm yourself.

I was up relatively early this morning, and drove down to the M3, where I swapped places with mum who drove the motorway, and then we arrived at the family's up in Surrey.

Had plenty of food, of course, played plenty of piano, talked about stuff and all that. Was quite a nice and relaxing day.

I drove back down to the motorway from my Gran's, got onto the motorway and had a good singsong on the road, where there was really quite a nice view from our car >.<

I then swapped with mum once again after the motorway, and then drove home, well. Just about.

I got caught in quite a... worrying diversion which took me down some very windy dark roads and was a LITTLE bit nerve-wracking, alas, nevermind.

We made it home eventually!

I think on that, it's Monday tomorrow, and I shall leave you momentarily.

ALSO, quickly, I've now had nearly £30 pledged for my sponsored silence, and thank you SO much for all the support so far. If you fancy sponsoring me, you can do online (via cards or even paypal) by clicking >THIS LINK<  - Or just let me know in person and I can collect money :P

I think that's about it! :)

Nightnight <3

Saturday, 12 March 2011

Day 179

Evening people :)

I honestly cannot stop listening to 'Rolling in the Deep' by Adele. It's been on ALL day, I swear. It's such a good  song! And if you've not heard it, you probably have without realising it, so, I suggest you go and have a listen, go on.. here's the link: Adele - Rolling in the Deep

She honestly has ONE OF THE BEST voices I've ever heard. She's up there with Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra and Christina Aguilera! 

Anyway, back to today. I didn't get very much done this morning, mainly because I didn't get up very early. BUT, I did record a new vlog, which you can see here: VLife #16

Still listening to Adele.. 
I checked the blog, and 100 days ago today, it was Children in Need!

My, we've come a fair distance in that time, and that reminds me to say the following - 

+ Hello to my readers in the UK, USA and Ireland
+ Привіт to my readers in the Ukraine
+ Helló to my readers in Hungary
مرحبا‎ to my readers in Morrocco
γειά σου to my Cypriot readers
+ नमस्ते to my Indian readers
+ привет to my Russian readers
Chào to my Vietnamese readers!

Gosh, I do love the internet!

"Baby, I have no story to be told, 
But I've heard one on you and I'm gonna make your head burn, 
Think of me in the depths of your despair, 
Make a home down there as mine sure won't be shared,"


This coming Thursday (the 17th), I'm doing a sponsored silence! Aha! Yes, I know. Ironic. But, If you can PLEASE sponsor me anything, literally, you know the whole every penny counts thing... My target is £30, which is about what I raised a few years ago! Click the banner above and you can either donate online, or, give any money to me directly, and I'll donate it in your name! Thank You :)

That's about all for tonight I think, hope you all had a nice Saturday! 


Friday, 11 March 2011

Day 178

Just another Friday evening sat on my own at home doing nothing. FUN.

I went into London today! That was good fun; and now I will tell you about it all!

Got up this morning and got a lift to school where I met up with people and boarded the coach, where, I must admit I was a terrible antisocial bastard and ignored Will the entire way, so I must apologise to him!

Though, we did have a good time house hunting like a proper married couple, and we did see some rather nice places! We had a good few lectures, a look
round the National Army Museum, and yes!

I also bought Mrs Ward a Toffee Crisp. Random act of kindness.


Isn't he cute as a... sort of. Thing?

Doctor Who, anyone?


The photo battle continues between William and I.

I did try and get an embarassing one of him..

I need to find it now..

Aahh yes. Here we go!

Nice on Will ;)


That's all I think for now.

Ciao. <3

Thursday, 10 March 2011

Day 177

Its another late one people, I'm so terribly sorry!


Today's not been great if I'm honest. Not a day I'll strive to remember if I'm totally honest with you. Hence, I shan't write TOO much.. >.<

I will say though, I'm off into London tomorrow to go to the National Army Museum for a history trip, which is quite cool, rehearsals tonight were good fun.. And.



I need to do a VLOG soon, might do one on Saturday.

Go Twitter me.? @LifeBlogLife

MORE PHOTOS ARRIVED TODAY! My friendship wall is beginning to get a little overcrowded with photos and letters and cool stuff.

History = Stump.

Today, we came to the conclusion that Florence Nightingale was a frigid lesbian psycho-bitch.

We casually talked about the rape of 10 year olds in English today.

Epic conversations. Clearly.

Oh, erm. A photo?


Yay for total irrelevance.


Wednesday, 9 March 2011

Day 176

Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

I awoke, just about this morning, got to school after seeing both Ben and Johnny on the train which is always a nice surprise to bump into two people instead of one :P

I got to school, moaned about my day a bit, and then got into the 6th form to hear: Oh, Tom, are you free now?

Yes! I said.. unknowingly.

No no, it wasn't that bad, I had to stand out on a freezing cold playground welcoming potential new deputy heads of the school and showing them to the headmaster's office. Needless to say it was BLOODY CHIPPER OUT THERE.

I had law, I started writing my essay, which was ok.? I had English next and that means more rape. And murder. And the discussion of it in great detail. No, not a practical lesson, simply A Clockwork Orange; a book more fucked up than Charlie Sheen's liver.

Tralalala... history. Erm. OOFT. Is all I can say for one part. Phwoar. And for the actual education bit... meh. So-so. It was history.

And MATHS. And this means the calculation of forces in equilibria (an awesome plural of equilibrium) and then I got a lift home AVEC CHRISTOPHE, and did some work, and then went out this evening to see MA'BESTIE Ben :D

Without anything sexual, gayest evening of my life: Cooking, Kittens and singing High School Musical. Needless to say, the videos WILL be on YouTube soon! ;D

In the meantime, here's a really unflattering still from the video itself:

Watch this space.

Talking about watching... space? GO CHECK OUT THIS TRAILER!
Concrete Castles

Peter Fellows is a babe. Go watch it for him. :D

Right, that's it for me!

Night <3

Tuesday, 8 March 2011

Day 175

Just realised I'm edging close to 200 days of this crap!

Welcome back anyway :'D

Today, today was a nice day. I got up about 9 o'clock, did plenty'a homework this morning, watched Glee, which, again made me cry. I literally, have cried at every Glee this season. I'm such a man.

I went into school today for ONE period. Yes, ONE. In this lesson, I did nothing. Well, I did, but nothing amazingly productive. Arararar. AND HERE IT COMES.

*SHOUTOUT* Alexander Howell. Here it is. I bumped into this BABE at Tesco the other today, and forgot to mention it, so, here it is. The LEGEND that is Alex. Here you go Alex, as promised ;D

After school today was the primary school dance festival thing at school, and I spent about an hour and a half trying to simultaneously turn on lights, play CDs from the right place and open curtains at the same time. Which, isn't easy. ¬¬ But the dancing was fabulous, and, yes. Congrats to all of them.

I came home, did some more homework, and learnt lines for TONIGHT. Which was another rehearsal for the play I'm in (which has now Sold Out if anyone was thinking about coming :P)

I was sat backstage for about 18 pages, and, well. For all of those who wondered what the back of a set looks like:

That's what the back of a fireplace looks like!

And now, I think, on that note, I'll leave you be!

Nightynight. <3

Monday, 7 March 2011

Day 174

Hasn't it been a sunny day?! Hasn't it just. It has. Well, it depends on whereabouts you are in the world (hello to all my international readers!), but here in Berkshire, England, it's been a sunny day.

However, it has been a Monday, and that of course means not being able to get up on time, at all. So, I got up about 10 minutes before I needed to leave, and rushed myself about a bit until I resembled something vaguely presentable, and left the house.

It was a nice walk:


I got to school, and BAM. Double English. Which, actually wasn't too bad. An hour studying poetry and this rather interesting take on nature, which, was. Good fun, I guess, but the second lesson is where it got interesting as we started looking at the portrayal of Alex in A Clockwork Orange, and we got all very deep into the ideas of social freedoms and all the rest of it. A very probing lesson intellectually.

HISTORY POW. World War One, Propaganda. BAM. Slam in your face. This makes no sense.

Maths. KABLAM. I don't even know what happened in maths.

And now enough with the onomatopoeic language, and on with the driving. Which is going well, and I've been told to book my test! Also, congratulations to Chris who passed his test this afternoon!

You can go check out today's VLOG as well, here:

Enjoy that, and goodnight!


Sunday, 6 March 2011

Day 173

Well what a nice Sunday it's been today. Of course, it's Monday tomorrow, and I don't think that any one of us wants that, alas, never mind, here we are. Sunday evening!

Starting off though with last night, I made so many new friends! :L

It was Matthew's party, and, I did abstain from meeting any of them to begin with, because I knew Matthew wasn't overly keen on the idea, but, eventually, I went for the fuck it approach and stood in the kitchen having a right ol' gossip with everyone! It was a really good night actually, and, had I photo to show you, I would. :L

I got up today around about midday, and got cracking with some school work (after a quick game of Bloons Tower Defence 4 :p) - and, erm, yeahh. That went well. Wasn't it sunny as well, the sun was coming into my room this afternoon, and it looked all.. warm! :D

I've been doing a few bits of work this afternoon, as well as trying to tackle some animated typography. NOW, for those of you who don't quite know what that is, take a look at an example like this, from the incredible 'V for Vendetta'

It's bloody difficult though!

And, now, I have a bit of work to do, so I will blog to you all again tomorrow!


Saturday, 5 March 2011

Day 172

Ooh, it's the second day off school, and it's only Saturday! I love three day weekends, I'm not gonna lie.

I got up relatively early for a Saturday today.. about half past ten? So, not too early. And yeah, erm. I got up, and recorded a VLOG - which you can view >HERE< - a lot of people have seemed to have liked. So, yay, erm. Yay!

I spent the afternoon then doing a multitude of jobs, mostly setting up stuff for Matthew's party which is currently kinda starting at the moment. Now, this included setting up all the speakers (the garden is once again the venue for the Joy family partayy) - which turned into the biggest botch job EVER! There's wiring in flowerbeds, guttering, fence panels, in trees, it's all a bit of a mess, but, oh well, Matthew seems rather pleased with it all. Then, I also had to wire up the lighting for the garden which involved a million and one lamps AND a Halogen Lamp as well.. LIKE I SAID, he seems pleased.

I also went for a lil' bit of driving (/Tesco) as well this afternoon which was as exciting as it CAN possibly be, and now, the partayyy has started, and yes, so nice to know we still have an extra day off tomorrow, so, yes. Roll on the rest of today.


Friday, 4 March 2011

Day 171

BAM. I passed my theory today.

Oh yes.

I woke up this morning to be told that my room was an absolute tip and it needed sorting one 2 seperate occasions from both my parents. BUT, I hadn't the time, in between playing Bloons Tower Defence 4 (Which I've started getting addicted to!) and revising for my theory test today, I simply had to leave it a tip for the time being!

Went into Reading, did my test, drove home feeling a rather large sense of relief! :D

This afternoon, I've mainly been tidying up and it all looks very nice and clean and everything!

The Vlog'll be on its way out later this evening, quite soon, and yes. Nice day off! < Here it is - VLife 13

Day 170

Erm. Don't really feel much like Blogging today.

I got up, got to school, shit happened, got home, went out, saw Saskia and ate Swiss Roll, learnt the sign language alphabet, saw Ben with Saskia, stayed silent, came home.

This was my day: 03/03/2011.

Day 169

OK, don't worry everybody, I'm feeling so much better now!

Sorry if I'm kinda drifting while writing this, but I'm actually watching Jeremy Kyle clips online. Because THAT is how I roll. I must admit also, I'm rather light headed, I'm not totally better just yet, keep having dizzy spells, but, shan't complain, an improvement nonetheless.

It feels really good to get back to Blogging, I'm not gonna lie. I know I was only off for just over a week, but, I felt like, I dunno, it just feels nice to return to the keyboard and type away knowing that people're gonna read this!

I was off today as well, my temperature was still fluctuating badly until about 11am, and then everything seemed to settle down, I've been drugged up as well on God knows how many pain killers, and I must say, my neck and lower back are still strained, but at least the stomach cramps have stopped.

Oooh.. Jeremy's just having some beef with Ashley, and he's Welsh. (*the clip here*)

"You should'a put something on the end of it!" - CLASSIC!

Oooh, she just started wailing and he's taken her offstage. That awkward moment for he audience much when it's just them and the thug. (!)

JK's back and he's thrown the tissues across the studio. Ohmagoshh.

So the paper came today, the local paper that is. How exciting is Wokingham? Well. THIS exciting.

Erm. Yes. Back to school tomorrow I think, well. I know. MY NEW COAT ARRIVED as well, and it's lovely. Omnom.

Right, I hope this post has been a little more... interesting than last night's!

"The only reason I stopped texting the 4 other girls is because I run out of credit." - Awkward. :s

Anyway, Ciao.



People like this need.. just. EUGH. I don't even know.
