House hunting gets boring sometimes. Getting drunk doesnt.



Not much has really happened the past 2 weeks except it was Austins and Jazmins birthdays.

Jazmin turned 20, Austin turned 21!
These birthdays turned last Wednesday into a complete wreck..
Everyone got wasted, and we all done some pretty silly things.
Wednesday evening started off quite uneventful, except Ellie and I said we would help Eric and Hannah with their assignment. They had to make a film, and their pitch thing was freaking great. They had someone stealing bacon and they put like 3 genres in the film (western, film noir and normal) and I got to play the person who got their bacon stolen which is pretty ironic because i'm not really fussed on bacon. Despite being super excited to be in their film, I was also very nervous because i cant act for shit. I get really giggly! From that experience I will take away knowledge that I should not act, I always pull the beaker face when im trying now to laugh, and that the line "you stole my bacon" can be put into so many situations.
This went on till about 9pm because everyone was pre drinking in our flat.. I literally got ready so so fast i cant recall.
Emily then turned up and sat on my bed amongst all the balloons we had blown up and watched me get ready.
Pre drinking consisted of playing beer pong, chandelier and popping Liams balloon babies.
Also, something else happened while pre drinking which excites me so much.. WE GOT A FLAT PHOTO! The fact that not all of us go out together often means it doesnt happen. But everyone was in the kitchen celebrating Austin and Jazmin's birthday,so we managed to get one!!
By this time, we were all relatively drunk thanks to downed ciders and a glass full of Jager. We decided to leave for Moos. My favourite part of the night consisted of Emily, Hannah and I dinosaur running down the high street, then Eric, Emily and I skipped down the road by Moos. I also patted Georgia on the head(Sorry!!)
I wish I could tell you events of the rest of the night, but the memories escape me. Either that or they're too embarrassing to relive.
The hangover the next day was pretty non existent seeing as im sure I was still drunk till about 3pm.

House hunting has been happening thing week and we've all changed minds about whose living with who so many times i've lost count. I actually gave up and came back to Cardiff early. Early enough to see Lowri on her opening night!!!

Lowri is currently doing a play called "Mort" which was originally a novel by Terry Pratchett. She legit only auditioned for a part because Lizard-face Cumberbatch (Benedict Cumberbatch) told her to. Which im glad he did. I was so proud of her. Which you'll have seen if you have me on Facebook or follow my Instagram.
She played the maid. Ive never seen Lowri do anything like this so it was really nice to see her performing! Also, if you actually know her, Its a shock to see her wear heels and SHE DID. Extra marks for her.
Also, shes befriended the lead in the play, and he is absolutely gorgeous.
I also got to see Hannah, which was lush .

Thats it thats happened these passed 2 weeks!

First post of the year!



I actually forgot about this blog until last night when I was pondering over life, as you do at 3am.

the past 3 weeks have been quite interesting.
Im not going to bother with the rest of my Cardiff trip because I think people who actually read this will probably had a guts full of hearing about it.
Although something that was a first for me was that I HAD MY FIRST NEW YEARS KISS. I know it seems quite minor for some people, but it was quite big for me (i'm quite lame.)
I went back to Chelts the week before uni started, and the first day back, i went to the hospital with Hannah, turns out I might have fractured my skafroid bone in my wrist the first night I had out in Cardiff when I wet back for Christmas. So, as a result of that ive been in a cast for the past 2 weeks. YAY. Its super annoying because ive gotta shower in a plastic bag, I cant do my own dishes and I cant write notes in lectures.
But despite that, it hasnt stopped me going out.

My first night out back was on the Thursday when I came back was hilarious. It was only Ryan, Hannah and I and I was so drunk I actually threw up. (doesnt happen in cheltenham)
But it was a really good night.
My next night out was on the Monday, when Austin and Jazmin decided that they were going to show the new americans Cheltenham nightlife. We ended up at Glamourpuss, which is a night where Kukui and Voodoo merge. This night, id say was a bust on my part, although it was lovely to get to know some of the americans that arent in our flat. A couple of them have decided that im like one of their friends from back home and have taken to calling me beaker, which amuses me, but scares me because I cant say im like anything/anyone in particular??
But in the end I had to drag Eric and Ellie out of the club, and make sure neither got run over or ran into walls. I also got blamed for depriving them of food, which is a complete lie. Anyway, I spent the whole night sober and my wrist was aching like a bitch.

Laura, Shaun, Stephen, Eric, Ben, Cait, Munya, Kenda, Ellie and me

 Ellie and I then went out with some of the people from our course, and two guys from Laura and Emily's flat. I feel like this night was one of the best Ive had out since moving to Cheltenham.
Laura, Emily, Alex and Fwin(James) came to Regency to pre drink with Ellie and I. We played 2 games of Ring of fire and of course I ended up with the shit mix both times. Safe to say I was fucked. we also made a rule saying the next people to pick up a certain card, they had to knock on someones door in the next corridor and introduce themselves. Ellie got the card and knocked on Shauns door while he was skyping his parents.. Oops!
I cant really remember what happened the majority of the night, except we all ended up walking around moos just talking to people we knew and stuff then making friends with people that were POM(popular music) 3rd years and them telling us they would let us record them(part of our new module) which was interesting.

The night after Hannah, Ryan and I went out, flat 4100, flat 5300 and some of the new americans did film night on Erics projector which he brought back up after Christmas. We watched Elysium; I didnt really like it but a load of people loved it. Suppose it has to be your type of film.
After everyone went back to their flats, Eric, Hannah, Ryan and I stayed in the kitchen, and Ryan went absolutely insane for about half an hour. He started OINKING, and called Hannah and I scheming pixies. I was sat in the window sill with my eyes literally streaming because it was so funny.

I know id already said that but I thought i'd elaborate.
Their names are Megan, Bree and Ben and they are so much fun.

I'm having genuine thoughts about dropping out at the moment because of some of the assignments we've got coming up in the new modules.
One in particular im extremely worries about in for "music industry practices"
We've got to find an artist, record them, then market them..
Marketing them; not so hard..
Finding someone and recording them; NAHHH.
What do they think I am?

Then for a module called "sound and screen" we've got to record a music video and a 2 minute promotion video..

I dont think much else has really happened, except ive off home at the end of the month because mumma has a hospital appointment and cant be in the house on her own.

Thats it.
