Yeah. Sums it up perfectly. This week's been completely 'meh'. I oversleep, I wake up late, I go to work, I go to Grandmoff's, I go home, I watch TV, I go to sleep. Nothing has happened that's even remotely exciting in my life this week. Oh, I finished unpacking my boxes since my last post. Woo. I dunno, maybe the reality of coming home has hit me a little now, but I don't regret the decision. My posters and photos are up, my Hello Kitties are on their shelves and my wardrobe is sorted, so my room's starting to feel more like home now.
To compensate for my boring week, the news has been... interesting. Interesting because of what's been being said and what HASN'T been being said. Aside from the tragic shooting of an elementary school in the USA, and the business surrounding the poor nurse who committed suicide after the international hoax call, nothing else much has happened. The news has been incredibly bland. Old cases have mysteriously been dug up: a solicitor from Ireland, the Alexander Litvinenko case, a kidnapping case in the Middle East, a missing teenager from the 1990's. Then there's all the government's silly stuff, which makes me suspicious: they're spending too much time whining over gay marriage, blocking porn and fracking. Then there's some trouble in Northern Ireland about the decision to take down the Union Flag. All of this makes me wondering what's been/being ignored, or magically 'hidden'. There's been very little in the way of anything festive, whether it's rants about overcrowded shopping centres or the list of top ten toys. I can't explain it, I just find it somewhat odd and rodent-like, if you get my jist. I really get the feeling we're in for something... The end of the world is nigh?!
However, there has been one home comfort I missed in East Sussex: Skip. so here's a picture of him all warm and nested on my coat and scarf!
Hello! I'm eighteen, I live in England, and I'm a vegetarian. No matter how hard I try, my life never seems to run smoothly! My life consists mainly of college, languages and music, and I want to be a translator for the United Nations. It's my dream to live in a city called Espoo, in the south of Finland. I've finally got my education back on the right track. Hopefully it'll be third time lucky, yes?
