I love my studies and I’m starting to realise that I can’t imagine myself doing anything else for the rest of my life, besides studying the Bible and ancient near-eastern religion, and sharing my love of that with other people.

At the same time, I’m also realizing that there are people around me who are literally born to be scholars and I’m just not.

Humph. The future is a scary place.

My laptop is broken and my hardrive is probably screwed. I have essays due in soon that I was stupid enough to not back up. Liam isn’t sleeping because he’s stressed and probably going to have to resit a year at uni through no fault of his own.

I feel like shit right now.

Also missing my sister this week ):

How the hell am I supposed to cope with saying goodbye to my sister for two years as she moves halfway across the world when I’ve been coping on  6 hours broken sleep for about 3 weeks?

I’d better not embarrass myself and cry at her leaving do tonight.

Liam has put aside his hatred for all things stage-show in order to help me do a good-quality recording of ‘On My Own’ for youtube.

I booked Liam’s 21st Birthday present last night.

It was a bit pricey, but he’s worth it and it’s something we’ll both get to enjoy. I’m taking him on his first ever trip to London! He’s picked all the stuff we’re going to do, which I don’t mind at all because he’s picked some cool stuff and this is my 5th trip anyway. We’re doing:

  • Buckingham Palace & St James’ Park
  • The Houses of Parliament
  • The London Eye
  • Trafalgar Square
  • Picadilly Circus
  • Going out to a fancy Indian and a bar on the evening
  • London Zoo
  • The Natural History Museum

Gonna be awesomeeee. I love London.

My mum’s attitude to my education and career decisions really bothers me. She can’t trust me to make my own decisions and do me own research and stay motivated. She hasn’t been happy with me since I failed with Cambridge and turned down my Durham offer.

I don’t think I’m ever going to win. Whatevs.

Emailing round loads of places about industrial years, and found some pretty interesting possibilities. Music teaching assistant, social work intern, council equality services and university research all sound brilliant.

Now I just have to find one (or two or three) that’s in Leeds, paid, I’m qualified for and that will actually take me on.
