Letting life take over

Because sometimes it's important :)

I have much to tell, but I'll tell it when it's over. It's not bad, (I don't think :S) but it's just incredibly weird. Then again that's nothing new for me!

I just discovered Janis Joplin, and I think she's wonderful!

Sometimes...well, always :D

I should not be this happy the day before an important exam that I'm not sure about!

Nor should I be blogging!

But sometimes, it's the little things that make you happy, and in my case (at least according to my friends, one of whom expressed the view that 'I'd love to be Dooley just for a day, because everything makes her so excited!') it's always the little things that make me happy. 
I found a new song and put it on repeat walking home from college today, and because of the wonderfulness of this new song, I didn't care about how cold I was (what was I thinking wearing leggings?? Trousers woman, trousers!).

The song is Fireflies, by Owl City. 

Everyone's raving about it at the moment, and I know why. I heard it on the radio on Friday morning and my friends told me about it on Friday night at Weekend Warm Up (incidentally, that's another reason I'm happy, it was really good and I missed the Christmas WWUP because of Slovenia, so nice to see everyone again)
The cover art of the album is lovely too, as is the name.

Not only does it make e think of summer, adventure and holidays (three of my favourite things!) but I also have family that live incredibly close to Dubai (in Abu Dhabi actually) so it makes me think of them, which is nice :D

No more! Revision is calling, well yelling actually :/
Liberal Reforms are coming out of my ears!

Normal service is resumed...well...almost!

So I haven't blogged in quuuite a while, and there are several reasons for this. In true Dooley fashion, I'm gonna make a list!

+ I spilt water on my keyboard :/ All my friends found it rather amusing, but as I was without a spacebar, a B key or an N key, and several other keys were stuck together, I was not. But then we found my old wireless keyboard, put new batteries in (and we thought it was broken, pfft) and I'm back!

+ I have had several January Modules to take with my college work, I had Critical Thinking yesterday, Philosophy this morning and I have History a week tomorrow. I've been revising 8-) (mostly)

+ The last one's rather peculiar. I didn't switch my desktop on once yesterday. And do you know what? It felt pretty darn awesome. Like, I was suddenly more connected to the land of the living, rather than the land of the virtual living. It makes sense to me :P

Anyway, I finally got the Slovenia pictures up on the computer :DD

Most of 'em are pretty good, I think :)

It was like a frozen waterfall, I got quite excited :D

I felt like I was walking through a Christmas Card. Especially on Christmas Day ><

Yeahhhh my snow angel rocked. The snow was extremely deep, and all powdery, as in, you wouldnt injure someone by throwing a snowball at them :P

Hehe, I'm snow ploughing :D

Hmmm, me hurtlng towards Sam on newly attached skis.

It's like a 'What happened next?' picture :')

See if you can figure it out :P

Top Gun! :D

I felt pretty darn cool in those aviators and that helmet.

And safe 8-)

This is one of the most intereting games of pool I've ever played :') Someone (I won't name names :P) potted the white ball, and the table failed to spit it back out again, so we improvised and used the green stripe. But of course, we couldn't lose another 'white' ball, so we all had to stand and 'protect' the pockets, to make sure we didn't pot the green stripe. It was extremely funny at the time, with much running about and "I've got it, I've g...oh dear" :D

Yes, we did go on holiday in a Lord of the Rings film. 'Twas rather exciting :D

Hehe, "Are you taking my picture?" "Well that's why I've pointed the camera in your face!"

If I could figure out how to do vids on here, I'd post the one of me (terribly) humming the Lord of the Rings theme tune, and panning the landscape, and pretty much humming the tune of every epic film I could think of, I even think James Bond made it in there for some reason :')

It was all very dramatic ;)

But I had an epic time (no pun intended), learning to ski, spending time with my family :) Meeting awesome and cool new people :D

I really like life!

New Decade

It's not just a new year, let's not forget :)
I feel sort of bad, because I only have one resolution. I don't go in for that sort of thing, but it is a new decade!

So, I only have one resolution because I would be doing everything else whether there was a new year or not eg pass exams etc

So my New Decade's Resolution iiiiiiiiiiisss:

Get my glasses fixed


It's kind of important, they keep falling off my face, because at the Wednesday Club (these guys:

will know what I'm talking about (well basically they come back to mine in our giant free period every Wednesday and we eat ice cream)) I roly polyed off the sofa and landed on my glasses. Hence the brokenness :/

Here's how I spent the New Year:

It was a really big windowledge, and the nice thing is that me and Beth (on the right) both sat in the windowledge at the ages of 11 and 9 respectively. See how much we've changed!

A New Year's Day walk, how lovely. My aunty posted this on Facebook with the caption 'The Castle of Park formation diving team prepares for its first (and last) performance'

I love my family!

Back to college now though, and sinking my teeth into the revision that piled up over Christmas. I have 3 exams within as many weeks. Wish me luck!
