It's my birthday, and it's been epic. I can now vote, which is my favourite thing about turning 18
When/If I get any gifts, I'll post some pics up here but so far I got the QI Book of General Ignorance and I've already noticed about 4 spelling mistakes!
I'm off to South Africa to help kids with AIDs, entertain them for a fortnight, educate, distribute etc. And it's foookin expensive. So I'm selling some games. PM me if you want anything below, or if you wanna hustle the price a little. All funds go to a good cause, and you get a game!

'k, that last one's a joke. Add £1 for P&P, regardless of how many things you wanna get. And if you yourself don't want it, find someone who might!
Also, tell me if you disagree with any of the prices. I didn't really do market research beforehand
So I disappeared for quite a while. Most people won't even know who I am. And those that do will just be depressed.
Hey, another blog beginning with D...
So I went on a choir tour to the north of Spain. And it was fun. And now I'm back.
So it was my birthday yesterday. But I couldn't get on the net to trumpet about it, so I'm a bit late.
I'm now 17, which means I can...wait. Another year yet.
Yah, I joined here a year ago.
So I had this idea which could potentially impact people in third world countries and kids in distress. I'm currently thinking about a way to help charity. My thinking is a clothing line that is cheap to manufacture but still "fashionable", with the proceeds going to two main places - Children in Need and NSPCC.
The "brand", if you like, would be bringer
Easter Holidays. Notoriously known for the fact that they're a few weeks before the start of the national exams. Crafy bastards over in that government place. Why Summer? Why not the Autumn after, when everything has had a chance to sink in?
Yeah, I've had so much work to do during this holiday it is flipping unbelievable. I have a job in the first place, and they're expecting me to be at every other function and silver-service dinner to cover for Emma who can't be bothered to think about others and just goes and selfishly has a baby. I mean, come on. Maternity leave? It's a joke! You give birth then you're away for about nine years.
So yeah, this has obviously affected the amount of time I've been putting into my school work, which is immense in the first place. I only have a few compositions to finish - a repertoire to learn for music - two oral presentations for French and Spanish, oh, and a whole anthology - to go over. Nothing much.
Sometimes I wish I wasn't clever. Sometimes I wish I'd come out dull and boring, left school at 16, gone onto some dead-end job that paid enough for me to uphold my internet addiction and that was it. But no. I'm going to Uni, and I'm paying for it now.
It must be FANTASTIC not having to get up and think - "Time to go to -insert learning establishment here-, better get ready". But I'm not jealous. I'm just tired.
Too. Much. Work.
I've had this game since buying my Wii, and I've never really gotten into it, but now I set aside 30 mins each night to have a little blast at the single player game. I thought it was a really dull and average game at first, but boy oh boy was I wrong
Seriously, there is just something about getting to the 8th Level without dying once that makes me happy hehe. If you don't have this game and were ever thinking of getting it, I'd say yes
(PS, if you can't find the link...well...)
