a student, a daughter, an older sister, a little monster, crazy for the UK, a pickle person, a night owl, a friend, hardcore, a joker, a little weird,
very friendly, a fangirl, grumpy in the morning, a hopeful photographer, a dancer, good with children, bad with left-traffic, clumsy, a party girl,
a teachers' assistant, an organiser, a hopeful singer, a RockStar drinker, a heel-person, into Disney, a blogger, a hopeful writer, a chick lit reader,
curious, into fashion, always on twitter, an inventor, against drugs, interested in proper shoes on men, working in a restaurant, impulsive, excited for the future!
accidently taking 5 m&ms out of a packet of the same colour, sunshine blinding me while I'm driving, driving my car alone so I can sing along to my favourite songs without bothering anybody,
when the music in restaurants is exactly loud enough to still hear it and still be able to speak to each other,
the sound of the tumbledryer, McFly, getting mail, shopping online, karate battles with people that don't know squat about karate,
making pokemons out of tinfoil and have battles, a heavy wallet, doing random cartwheels, living after your horoscope,
happymeals, sudoku, twister fries, giving advice even though I never really take any advice from others, murder documentaries,
taking silly quizes from magazines, Simon Mitchell's amazing art, telling ghost stories even though I'm the biggest wuss around, my glasses,
schoolparties with old teachers, researching random facts, sleeping in, exploring, Adam from The Struts.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

You know when we dress up for Queens Day... when we sort of go over the top on orange? Yea, St Patrick's Day is like that, except everything's green. It's an Irish holiday, so we didn't really celebrate it that much at school, but the three Irish teachers and the music staff had organised drinks at 4 in the staffroom.
Awesomeness! The table in the staffroom was full with 'Irish food and snacks' and Helen was mixing Black Velvets for everyone. It's basically Guinness mixed with champagne. I thought I wouldn't like it, but I ended up drinking three glasses. Half way through, all chairs were moved and two little girls came in to give a little Irish Dancing show. When they had finished, Alan had drunk enough to have a go as well (I heard that last year he was knocking over tables with his long legs, so now we moved all knock-overable things out of the way) and he was brilliant! Then Anna had a go too and she is absolutely amazing!! Afterwards everyone was talking about dancing so when I got asked if I danced, I explained how I used to be really into hip hop dancing... Next thing I know everyone's telling me to show off some dancemoves in assembly. Err... no thanks.
More awesomeness; at some point, people were talking about their first concert and they had all these amazing bands that were their first gigs. The Stones, Van Morrison... when they asked me, I just went "Ehh... Busted?". I expected everyone to burst out laughing, but one of the teachers had a mental freak out. "Oh my God, Busted?!" Turns out she's a proper fan of them ("Did you also fancy Charlie?! He was definitely my favourite!") Never mind that she's probably about 45...
Last awesome thing; today when a parent asked Helen where I was, she described me as 'That girl with those amazing glasses'. Never gets old, getting compliments on my specs!
