Is it wrong

that I'd really like to purchase some purple Nike air tops? There's also a lovely lovely parka coat in River Island that I definitely need to buy. However, the slight problem being that student finance has given me 3 times the amount I asked for. So, I've accidently been spending money I actually don't have. It's a must buy though as it is gorgeous. I've also realised, after talking to a friend who can cook carribean food, that I should probably start cooking and eating properly as I have probably put on about 50 stone. It seems like the more I am determind not to spend any more money, the more I need to buy essentials. Like a £50 psychology book I apparently need to buy (with the Antony Gormley figures on the front!- my mum and brother made some to contribute yeeears ago). The main thing I've been buying is a lot of stuff to make me feel better, I went a foam party days ago and I totally blame that for my illness. I now have a drawer full of different tablets and medicines that can probably supply me for a year. Living away from home has also reinforced my knowledge that I am completely incapable of keeping my room tidy. I do try but its quite obviously a lost cause. On a different note, I managed to dye my hair (it had NO effect) without damaging my braid but caught my nose ring. NOT fun.

Love love LOVE my uni room. A fair bit of storage, wooden flooring and an en suite! I'm living at the city campus (literally two minutes away from the clubs) but 20-30 minute walk away from the main campus and the SU bar but I reckon that's an advantage cause I'm near all the shops. I share flat 6 (the best one obviously) with 5 cool people who are easy to talk to. I arrived on Saturday and as I began to unpack all my stuff I realised all the food I bought back home hasn't been brought down to Worcester. So my mum and dad took me shopping and buy loads and loads of food hoping it will last for ages, even getting food I don't eat at home but should last a long time. I didn't really think of things I take for granted back home (i.e a shower mat, pins, knives) so I had to nip into the city centre, which is basically a big circle so you can't really get lost, and find the cheapest shop to buy them from as my student loan still hasn't come through! Fresher's weeks been pretty ace although I haven't actually been the main events due to walking there and back. So I've attended the pre and after parties because theyre really close and this wristband I've bought has gotten me in for free. It's been so busy in the day as well, we were given a 'Welcome Week' pack which tells us what we're expected to do each day of Fresher's. It involves stuff like meeting your tutors, inductions and trips to do with your chosen subject(s), because I'm doing a Joint course it's been mega hectic walking from one campus to another none stop. It's even more frustrating that they all start at 9:15am or 10:15am (and a particular trip starting at 7:45am!) as it means you get noooo sleep at all.

I'm looking forward to knowing my way around without getting lost.

managed to get hold of one of these...

(my jaw seems so square)
an air force jumper which I have wanted for ages. The only person who knew where to get one was my dad as he owns a green army one from his so called 'fashionable days' (the days where he had long feathered and layered hair, wore cowboy boots, ponchos etc :|) He said he had bought them from an army shop, but I couldn't find any at all. So after a couple of years of wanting one, my mum points out that my dad also has the navy air force jumper. So I state to my dad that he never wears it and I've looked everywhere for one. Leading him to donate it to me :) It's not the most flattering of garments as it is massive, but still its really comfy and I've figured it'd look alright with a belt or something.

You are

100% sure that England is mundane when Epcot symbolises the U.K by using a red postbox, a pub and a 'Twinings Tea' cottage. Then you walk around imitations of Japan, Morroco, China, Mexico etc which all consist of impressive buildings, restaurants and the occassional ride. I know this because I've just arrived home from a two week holiday in Florida. A completely different holiday to what I'm used to but still amazing (I dove with sharks! in a rather claustraphobic mask and a scuba suit that took agggges to put on) Uni in two weeks! Ahhh...
