today cos mum just found an original beatles
book of hers (from the '70s) at the back of a cupboard, and it's in mint
condition! it's really cool. i've kind of rediscovered the beatles lately, i dug out good ol' sgt pepper
again and got 1
a few weeks ago.
in other music news today, i have finally got off my arse and scanned in that nice picture of ville valo
on the cover of metal hammer
magazine. check it out...
went to prizegiving
last night - after all the usual what-am-i-gonna-wear agony - and was pleasantly surprised
to find myself receiving all kinds of awards. i got special awards for all my subjects, cos a special award means you got an A in that subject, plus the award for AAA and the psychology cup (shared with lucy
). some people got tons of 'em, like georgia
who got a cup for every subject. there was also an extra award (and photoshoot... ulp! i got very shy...
) for people who got AAA (i.e. me, georgia, tom, annikka, alice... altho i think jamez e
should have got something too, cos he got AABC which is about the same as AAA in ucas tariff points
). the special guest speaker this year was, fittingly, a cricket player
(we won the ashes
, wahey!). will
said that his degree (international tourism management) includes a year abroad in the 2nd year, and that is also the year that the ashes is in australia
, so he's going there ;-)(there were 2 awards that puzzled us all, though: the awards for head girl and head boy. (yes, our school is really that old-fashioned that we still have heads of school, prefects, etc.!) what was the point of those awards, theres no possible competition for them, so its not really an achievement to win them because the moment you become a head you automatically win the award anyway!)
finished another week's work experience at the CPS
today - could come in handy in the future. i quite like it there, i think i might even consider working there one day - a career to bear in mind at least. the problem is all the paperwork
and red tape
they have to cope with... :-Sby the way, please feel free to leave comments on the colours i'm using in the blog lately - i hope i'm not overusing them, but i thought it might need a touch of colour to liven it up...
