Long time no update,no real reason. I'm still in Newcastle,it's nice,liquorish rizlas and darkrooms in attics and old empty houses,how much ice-cream can you manage in one bite? I'm going to Egypt tomorrow,woo! For 10 days,so expect some pretty pretentious/awful photos whenn I get back. One of my oldest friends I've not seen for years is going to Leeds festival this year and I am ridiculously happy. Oh that reminds me, Jen,would you &gary like to camp near me &dan? Hope you're all fine,lovelove xxxx

Update!!!!!!!11 [17 Jun 2006|04:18pm]
My life lately has been grazes, skin smells, cards and rollies and 2bottlesfor£5, odd games of football and 25year old Canadians, good home-cookin' and Hackney arches. Home in Newcastle for a while, good old friends and dan and mum and internet flathunting. Life's good y'all,I hope you're all okay too xxxxx

[ mood | hmm? ]

I just found my first best friend from primary school on myspace, of all things. Question is, do I contact her? I'm pretty sure we have absolutely nothing in common except that once we were the same, I think I just like the idea of seeing her, she's still in Cornwall.

[ mood | goooood,real good ]

So last night I met up with college people and drank for England,and it was brilliant,and Dan put his arms round me in the freezing taxi que and I'm in that really stupid, teenage state and smiling to myself a whole lot.And this morning I put my phone in the washing machine,so if anyone's wondering why I'm not speaking,it's "draining" on the radiator. And I'm dropping out of Fine Art and doing a photography degree next year. Hope you're all well!

Brought to you by me, Susie, Rhian and Rachael (pete was really quite good)

So it looks like I'm seeing Pete on Tuesday,which should be pretty interesting... great company &nice drink either way. Today we went to see Narnia again(Edmund=Richey Edwards circa 1992,or is it just me?) and ate pizza and drank whisky, all of which was lovely,especially seeing Jen again after what,nearly a year? Crazy. Tomorrow I'm going back to London, so will hopefully get to see a whole bunch of you in the next few weeks, as ever if you're at a loose end in Hackney come and give me a buzz, and I hope you all have a lovely few months &take care of yourselves and all's wonderful. love love,xxxxx

In the morning there's a buzz of flies [12 Jan 2006|10:21am]
People who ask for help with their shopping kill me, but when I'm sitting there feeling those 4 whiskies from that hour before more and more, controlling my smirk and trying not to laugh is enough to concentrate on. Last shift over till Easter, a good afternoon, Susie and pubs, I'll miss Newcastle. I always feel vaguely sad to leave work, mostly because theres some good people, more because I romanticise everything the second it's gone.

oh,another thing I forgot to mention, I am completely obsessed with recording everything, in case my memory goes. And usually it does.

Well I got back at 8 last night,"Europe" was excellent and great and interesting and just everything I hoped,we met so many people and saw so many things, highlights would be coming home seeing dawn on the U-bahn at 5am,astronomical clocks &banana beer in Prague,the night-train to Croatia,a crazy silent Hungarian film in Parliament square in Budapest,Poland generally and seeing the actual stencil my icon is of on a wall in Paris.Photos soon,all pretty excellent,didn't argue with Susie once and didn't want to come home,Bolivia next year?Maybemaybe,somewhere anyway,now its all work and waiting for Reading. Since I've come home all it's been is awkward text messages I don't reply to,fucking wine and 11-12yrsschool-cardigans.You know.

How are all of you?(&who's going to Reading?I want to meet you all

I'm so boring and miserable on livejournal,sorry all,just I only seem to sit down here when I'm miserable/angsty &all.Whatever,the internet,it doesn't really matter does it?

anyway,I watched live8 on the tvs at work and the best bits I thought were Pink Floyd(!!!),the who(!!!also) and I really wish I'd seen Pete,although it sounded like it was pretty bad but would've been pretty hilarious,if only for elton looking a bit embarrassed in an elder-sibling kind of way. I think it probably won't do a great deal to change anything,or really raise awareness/caring, but at the same time I read something in the paper about how it was on the front page of an American newspaper yesterday,and you know,if it put Africa at the top of the world's priorities even for just a day its got to be a good thing. And yeah I didn't go to Edinburgh,because I'm useless,and I wish I had. I seem to have got a bit more defeatist/cynical lately which I think is a shame.

Today is my brother's 17th birthday,we went to an Italian restaurant and had spaghetti and wine,it was nice because my mum and him don't always talk that often and its only a few months left till London and all,so its really nice when we're all together. I'm so excited and scared,I'm convinced that when I get there I'll just never have another idea again,but anyway.Sometime I think me and susie are booking hostels for Europe?If you read this duck ring me please,I have no credit and have been at work all the time so haven't been able to ring you.But as of friday,Berlin(hi Lauren!) et al

Friday I went to Bulletproof with jen,it was just boring,we danced and drank and all that and talked to a few people too drunk to really do anything,baah,I don't know,I didn't like it and cried in the taxi home and I feel like such a child,all the time.

I miss this girl a lot:

Saturday I went to the Hoppings (this "travelling fair" from Europe somewhere,it comes every year and is amazing and tacky and busy and full of stalls selling chips and candyfloss and toffeeapples and it just great,I love it) with Susie,Jen,Sarah,Jenny,Jacquie,Felicity and some of their boyfriends. It felt like we were still at school,it was lovely and exciting and good in that fairground way at first and we went on the carousel and a ghost train and the big wheel at half10 when it was dark and you could see all over the site and all of Newcastle far away,it was gorgeous.And ate candyfloss and played hook the duck,and then after a while it just got a bit horrible,and I think people began to remember everything that made us stop talking last year. And I don't know. I'm glad I went though,I think everyone's okay.Susie and me walked home and sat on the kitchen floor till 2 talking about whatever,a lot.
Monday was the exhibition/final show at college,I was really nervous and drank a lot of wine and talked too loudly but it was really good,really really good,and we went out afterwards and got completely off our faces and I talked to all the people I meant to all year and felt completely at ease. I want to be an honest, open and at ease person so badly, I try too hard. All of my friends from school are so polite to eachother,we haven't talked without a smile for about 3 years. I spent most of the night lying on the seats talking to Vicky and Adam and Tom,and I'll miss them all so much.My old art teacher turned up,randomly.

I'm going to Berlin,Prague,Croatia,Bosnia,Hungary and Poland next friday.I hope you're all ok,tell me what to do to help.

I am the biggest idiot alive,I've lost my house keys and consequently on the nicest day of the year so far I CAN'T LEAVE MY HOUSE.haha,garden it is then..


me me I us [16 Jun 2005|02:57pm]
On Saturday I went to Northern Ireland for a few days,and went for walks in the rain with a bunch of dogs and ducks and chickens and fields and an orchard,and blueskies drizzle and a lot of greengreengrass.Susie's family are really open and friendly,and its difficult because the little dogs we played with and jump up to you are used for hunting hares.And I am pretty damn anti-hunting,and its everything.Now I'm back in Newcastle I can sit and be rational and distant about it all,and explain exactly how I know I'm right,and not have to compromise.

I've had some of the best conversations in a while this weekend,on buses to Belfast and across breakfast tables with an elderly woman who I can't pretend to know.

So anyway now I'm going to work,with some coffee and this boy called James,Dude,goes to his car in breaks for weed and you can stand talking for a good hour,in a 4hour shift.His dad's an alcoholic and he doesn't mention his mum,he lives in a village,bought his dad lager for his birthday and buys beer in white ceramic bottles.He's doing computing or something,everyone in that building is there to kill time.(I still don't fucking know what I#'m doing these next few months ahhhh)
