Yes I'm getting my twitter feed sent here. Apologises to anyone who finds it on their friends page before I get chance to lock it as private. I'm @Allieandra if anyone's interested. Feel free to add. My conversations tend to go off on tangents but they can be fun to jump on if you see something you wanna comment on.

Other than being a Twitter addict right now I've also realised nearly all my plans are Torchwood related.

My Plans:
11/05 - Tom Price in York
17/05 - British Touring Car Championship at Donington
22/05 - My Birthday
John Barrowman in Blackburn 
27/05 - John Barrowman in Harrogate

05/06 - Leeds Uni's Summer Ball
12/06 - Torchwood Preview screening in London
13/06 - Bramham Park Horse Trials (possibly)
14/06 - Bramham Park Horse Trials
20/10 - Franz Ferdinand in Leeds
23/10 - The Hub:3 in Birmingham

  • Going to see Friday 13th tonight at 11.35pm. Late night horror flick at the cinema? Hell yeah!

  • Was reading Son Of A Witch yesterday whilst waiting for my Materials Lab. Finished page 186 (or there abouts), looked at next page to find out it was page 263. Brilliant. No pages had been ripped out. No gap in the spine. No missing pages elsewhere. Safe to say wasn't impressed. Did no one else who had read that copy notice? Will be having a trip to the library to complain/inform them. Thank god for eBooks. Albeit with different page numbers.

  • Dr Black was running said Materials lab and asked me to stay behind and speak to him. I was thinking 'oh fuck'. It obviously showed as he went on to explain he wanted to discuss mix designs for my dissertation. The new baby (Grace) is making it difficult for him to keep up with what everyone's doing and it's worrying him.
  • When discussing this he said to me 'Rachel spotted your nails'. Shit. Fuck. and all the words inbetween. I was trying to think up a way of politely saying 'if you're about to tell me to cut my nails I'm doing a different dissertation'. Luckily this speech was not needed. Apparently if I'm comfortable with working with long nails (why would they be long if I wasn't?!) then they would take special precautions so I could use the machinery. *pumps fist in air*

  • Still need to book hotel for Avenue Q. Someone remind me to do that later.

  • 8 and a bit days til my first con! Wooooo
  • Why is everything the same weekend? Leeds Unis summer ball. Collectormania. Utopia. probably Bramham Horse Trials.  I wanna go to Utopia as Gareth David Lloyd and James Moran are doing it. But with that being the saturday and london it wipes out pretty much everything else. Collectormania is the entire weekend and is in Milton Keynes. assuming spatch wants to do the entire weekend. There's no one I wanna see at that so far. Bramham Horse Trials is Thurs-Fri-Sat-Sun. Normally just do Sat/Sun unless is brilliant weather and then I burn badly on the Friday! Only made it to three years so far. Actually might be four as I think one year I just did the friday. That would still allow me to do the Summer Ball -assuming other people want to go. My final year at uni but most people are staying on for another year and Katy Perry isn't likely to make my friends want to go. Hmmm decisions, decisions.

Future Plans; well it's not like I can plan the past unfortunately :(

Soo I've been thinking, yeah I know that's dangerous etc etc but I really have. I now want to pass this degree, yes I actually care now! and possibly do a teaching certificate.

hmm Can you see me as a teacher?

John could imagine me as an English teacher, but that was probably only because he had a thing for teachers.

Maths? Probably - I prefer science but how the hell do you do a sex ed class to thirty odd teenagers?!

*Remembers Kerry making Mrs Morgan blush!*

Lots of question marks and exclamation points there *points upwards*  indicate more thinking required.

Allieandra is still putting off the 20 page essay that's due in on Monday. Millions of calcs to do as well; and apparently it all takes about 2 weeks to do. Whoops.

On a much happier note; I'm going to see John Barrowman in concert on my 21st! on my own but at least I won't have my friends getting my family to do Cossack (sp?) dancing in the kitchen again...

Also going to see JB 5 days after my birthday. Not obsessive. Not at all. My reasoning is that I didn't get to see him on his last tour so I'm going twice to this one!

Soooo excited about the Hub 2. Now all I want is for JB to go aswell. Please. I know it's the day after your birthday but need RL Janto-y goodness! *Happy Sigh*

Off to see The Zutons tonight with Jennie :D gonna be good I hope

'M beginning to stress over my NaNoWriMo going so darn slowly. Only got 2363 words. Should have done that in a day and in twenty mins it's day eight. How productive would writting it out of order be as I have a selection of scenes in my head it's just the linkage between them that's going oh so slow.

Gotta start my 6000 word project asap too as it's due in just over two weeks.

My Plans for Nov/Dec
NaNoWriMo - 5000 words
Design a road and write a 6000 word essay about it. Project should be around 70 pages. well it was round 20 pages in the end
Essay on Railways which I have a feeling should be around 50 pages.
Structural And Stress Analysis problems
Draw a house on an architecture computer program Done :D Albeit badly I think
Engineering Mathematics problems
Civ Eng Otley run  didn't go
Several birthday parties went to 2, not going to other 2
Attend a bassillion lectures
Daily two hour bus ride
Sleep? - Maybe not.

Decided to start planning my novel today in a particularly boring lecture that I don't understand a word of!


Thinking something Wiccan based?  - didn't get much further than that - can you tell my planning got distracted by sudoku?!

Any ideas of what I should include?

Oh was my first day back at uni fun! Well actually it wasn't THAT bad surprisingly.
My three hour Railway Engineering lecture, although rather boring, only seemed to last an hour or so. They do seem to like to stick 'age' on the end of words that don't need it.

Kinda zoned out in Structural & Stress Analysis (or Struct & Stress Anal as it called on exam sheets. Seriously.) Lis was passing postcards to Char constantly, including a drawing of the lecturer labelled 'Dr Christmas', so I'm blaming them.

Maths was shockingly easy although the lecturer made me shout out the answer to his question because NOONE had a fucking clue! It was GCSE level, people! Come on.

Gotta catch up on deadlines now. Essays to write, problem sheets to do, and a big assed project to get going.

I have twelve hours left to decide the rest of my life. No over-exaggeration.

At 2pm I have a meeting to inform the university whether or not I am returning to the course. In May and before that to be honest I was adamant that I'd never set foot in another Civil & Structural Engineering lecture for many reasons. It stripped me of all my confidence and basic self-belief. The 'Maths genius' no longer able to add up simple sums. Not able to string together a simple sentence, especially in speech. The creation of panic attacks and the loss of trust in the people I knew on the degree.

So why am I considering going back? The original reason for consideration was lack of money blossoming from being unable to find a job that didn't require 'relevant previous experience'. Sitting around the house all day has given me cabin fever. I just need to get out and do something. Anything really. I want to get a degree in something, so why not continue the degree which I am two thirds of the way through? I don't know what I want to do with my life but I do know that it's not working in Civil Engineering as it no longer holds any interest for me at all. Yes the degree is a good one from one of the higher universities but I don't want to be stuck doing something I detest.

The thought of falling back into the old rutine is scaring me. I can imagine the panic attacks returning with vengeance as soon as I have any sort of deadline or exam, and exams had never been a problem for me until the second set of level two exams. The people, or well person mainly, who made life hellish has already contacted me demanding information after seeing me on campus! I understand it's probably the case of being scared to get back on the horse after a major fall but fuck this is worse than anything I've known. It's a shame it isn't actually a real horse I need to get back on to conquer this fear because that I can do, have done, several times including when I couldn't walk and had sever concussion. Damn I wish it was a real horse.

By the amount I've written, even without re-reading it I know I'll be up all night stressing over the decision again. All I want to do right now is scream at the top of my lungs until my voice goes hoarse and then scream again. See I said I was stressing!

ETA: I know I'll regret it but I'd probably regret it more if I didn't so I'm going back. ARGH!

well at least for a while anyways

just had a day with Jennie and Simeon drinking cocktails. Why didn't this happen whilst I was still at uni? I had such a great day that i'm considering sticking out another year to continue the good times but I fucked up my c/w & exams as I have/had no intention of going back. hmmmmm. Is it possible to socialise with students whilst working full time and living with your parents? I worry not :(

Anyway trip to Glasgow in September is planned. Not sure how long for - probably  depends on cost/remaining funds :D

A reaction

Gonna keep this short as I can't actually remember how to do a cut. Yes it is that long since I posted!

1. I finally like my new hair... I think.
2. Revision doesn't happen if there is absolutely anything else I can be doing.
3. Civ Eng is so boring I'm contemplating the alternatives.
4. 'Friends' aren't real friends when they choose to socialise with people they claim not to like over socialising with me. [that may sound really childish but I can't really think of another way to put it right now]. The transparent lies are kind of a give-away too.
5. I still need to find out who I am.
6. Uni fic never gets old!

That's all for now. Force me to post something more meaningful & more frequently!
After my leeds fest post i haven't posted anything here which is one hell of a long time. The reason for this? That promotions person who commented last time - clearly the only person to read it as i know so few people on lj as they are all over at either myspace or bebo (come on people bebo is terrible). I don't want comments from promo people trying to get me to advertise their bands, i ain't gonna do it. the bands that are mentioned are ones i have found myself and either love or hate. even the promo person didn't read what i wrote as it wasn't at all complimentary about the band you wanted me to host the mp3s of.

I would friends lock but their doesn't seem much point as there are so few friends on this. So your choice is either add me if you haven't already, comment here to show that you read it or get a wiggle on over to my myspace where i actually blog!

have got to stop now as my powerpoint is due in today. have 20mins to do it now and think it counts toward grade!
