There is someone who I don’t think is treating a friend well, and I never expected it of them, but I don’t want to meddle…

Clothes and shoes as always, maybe alcohol, but then I always drink the cheap stuff, recently and rather boringly it as been petrol!

Going travelling with Global Xchange in March 2009 and going to see Santa today at work, I felt 6 years old again!

17i. Thinner or fatter?

Getting away from campus for horse riding once every week.

The bloody credit crunch!

I’ve not really learnt anything new, just revised some old lessons and continued to ignore them!

Gees this one is hard!
'You must have known the storm was coming
when the clouds appeared
May as well let the rain come down
And join the circus of people
While you're there’
Penedulum, The Tempest, mostly because I’ve kinda loved Pendulum this year
