Well this blog post will be quite random, picking up on lots
of things that have happened since my last posts, which unfortunately has been
quite a while.
These last few weeks have been very busy. I finished my
exams for the year at university, which generally means lots of celebrations
and lots of people celebrating their birthdays. So you have the people who
waited til after exams to celebrate, the ones who actually have their birthdays
at that time and the ones who are celebrating early, because most people go
home for summer.
I do have to say there was one party which stood out from
all the rest. One of my friends, Aneesa, decided that as she was graduating
this year and there were so many restaurants that she still hadn’t visited, for
her 21st birthday her celebration was going to be a week long event
in which we would eat out at a different restaurant each day – I’m going to go
into this in more detail in my blog post Eating out – the week long birthday party in addition to that we
had a couple of fancy dress parties, for one I made Pokemon costumes – looked at
in my *pokemon fancy dress* blog post. (will be posted at some point – hopefully soon…)
But unfortunately that is most of my summer over now. I
start working fulltime at the beginning of July, a six month placement as part
of my degree, working in a biologics company. I haven’t quite decided whether
or not I’m going to try and move closer to the office to reduce the commute I
have. Maybe if I have a productive commute I could use the time to write some
blog posts, which would be useful as I will be quite busy otherwise. I think it’s
going to be quite a shock to my system though, it’s been a long time since I’ve
had to get up at 6am everyday.
Since I’ve had to try and cram much of my summer into a few
shorts weeks I went home to visit my parents and help them clear a lot of my
old stuff out of their house. It’s quite surprising how much sentimental stuff
you can accumulate over the years. I even spent many hours clearing out the
contents of my old toy room. That brought back many happy memories of hours
spent playing with lego and other toys. No expensive electronics or phones,
just quite happily pass the time with a train set or building a lego house. =)
I went up to Birmingham as well to stay with a friend
of mine for a few days. I got to go see some of the action at the Olympic
Trials, which was really good. I was supposed to be seeing my friend run at them
as well, but unfortunately he changed the event he was running in, so it was on
a day I didn’t have a ticket for. Silly athletes always being so last minute
with their plans… It does however make me feel ridiculously unfit whenever I
see people competing at athletics. I wish I could run like that. Maybe I need
to start my fitness ‘regime’ again and stick at it for more than a week or two. 
Only a few more days til I start work 🙁 but at the moment I’m helping Pippa pack all her stuff for going away sailing. I want to go away! But I can’t… I’m still hoping maybe I will be able to go camping or on a weekend break over the summer. Fingers Crossed!
