yup, i'm still alive, it's all good :D

i can do a photos post, finally! desktop, how i've missed you! mm, so i've finally found the other memory cards for barnacle bernard, as well - this means i can take 500 photos instead of 150, whoaaa, this is madness 8-)

also, i've been making cakes! cakes, and rocky road. and everything else, ever. I find it amusing that the only time i venture into the kitchen is to make tooth-rotting goodies.

hmm, so since last blog, i have
- had a C2 exam; dear god i failed so hard,
- had a classics exam, which felt like a bit of light relief after c2.. that was three hours long, though, and i emerged with no right hand, but a claw :)
- went to the isle of wight to visit dean :D there was an epic ice cream parlour, it had ferrero rocher ice cream. best. ice cream. ever. It was basically the exact thing I want to own, when i'm much much much older, haha. also spent quite a while playing portal.. i am now truly sad, because i know where 'the cake is a lie' comes from.
- made cakes. CAKES. and rocky road.
- my friends converted to the i can has cheezburger religion. I disowned them.
- went on an alice-in-wonderland themed shoot with catherine. I say 'shoot'.. it was just catherine, me and hazel in a field.. with catherine dressed as alice in wonderland? yeah; s'fine. :)


this was the only one of my catherine-on-a-tree photos that was even vaguely in focus. srsly.

she's all pretty ^^

alice-y :)

i love him i love him i love him :)

see above comment :)

flutterby! :)

kitten is so awesome. :)

i like birds, especially when they are in my garden :)

i'd just like to point out that hazel and catherine are epic.

...this is a cake. shaped like kon.

If I open my eyes

it appears that everything kind of made sense all along. I think I've sorted my head out.

ps - hazel, maybe i just wanted to say camear, alright?

come in to my world, i've got to show, show, show you

hai guiseeee, I don't seem to have been blogging much at all recently. Iunno, everything's been fairly boring and mildly pants, really. Exams are, well, they're fun. I think they've been going alright so far? nowhere near as sure of myself as I was at GCSE, though. GCSE I almost expected my results; AS-levels I'm expecting Bs at best for most.. and maths, well. We'll just have to see how the exam goes, but I'm thinking a D if I'm lucky, a C if some form of magical cheating is involved.. this is good. this is positive. I'm getting an E in maths.
Then there's life generally. Which I can't seem to help comparing to this time last year. And this time last year was bloody cheerful, really. I recall frisbee and dancing and the ice cream man and being excited about going to see dean, and most importantly, everyone actually liked eachother. I miss that, a lot. I guess I don't rely on it as much as I did then, though, at least.. At least there's dean, 164 miles away though he is.
I want laura back.
But I suppose all is not that bad. I get to see dean in four dayss :) :) the isle of wight is such a nice place to escape to, i think i'd like it almost as much even if dean wasn't there. That and, friday is my last exam for two weeks. Which means FREEDOMMM. and walks, and getting lost. mm, i can't even decide whether i'm excited for summer or not! I suppose if things aren't fixed it might be a little awkward, but.. SUMMER :) ahh..
hmmm.. i really need to properly clean out my desk and stuff so i can revise tonight, but effort is really effort.. I also need to take more pictures! but, alarse, (yes, alarse, its a real word now, alright?) my failputer has turned into, well, a failputer. Leaving me with the laptop. Which is six years old. and has no disk drive. or ram. this is fantastic, clearly. Because I definitely can connect my camera to it (it can't deal with a camear without a disc, for some reason..), and i definitely can use psp.
...I miss the failputer.

You being Cat, and Caitlin. Because it's not really all that relevant to anyone else. Unless you are studying AQA psychology specification ..a? b? i don't remember which one>.<

this is positive. POSITIVE. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarg.

long time no see, bloggy. 
Well, I probably have about two trillion photos to point at, effort is effort is effort is effort is effo- you may see where I'm going with this. I have exams in less than two weeks (Psylololology in one week and one day, HALP) so obviously it's entirely logical to be writing a blog right now. yup.

I'm considerably cheerier than I was when I last wrote a blog, probably because I've been doing work through break and lunch A LOT.. which means there are less people. and less people means less people talking about laura and lydia and failix. and less people talking about laura and lydia and failix means me in a better mood. (this may however only be a correlation; perhaps it is the pigeons nesting in my front garden who are to blame for my cheery mood of late).

I need to go for a walk. It's may and it's sunny and I need to go for a long, long walk and get lost and take photos of places I've never been to and listen to music and sit in fields (and revise in fields, that's logic right?) and I want there to be yellow fields and wheat and hide and seek and the ice cream man and a new never ending path. But I can't because I know Monmouth too well, with the discovery of the benches i've been everywhere. It's a lot harder to get lost when you know where you're going. I need to go the other way on neverending path, because I really don't want it to be never ending path any more, I want to know where it ends. But that doesn't work because it will take hours and I don't have hours, I have exams, and I have the people in watery lane probably worrying about the strange large-haired girl who walks up and down their street weekly. I am so bored of Monmouth. 

My welsh coursework is finally actually done, though. This is positive (and for once, I actually mean that). I put in a page of sheeny shiny pictures to distract from the fact that there were only about 5 pages of actual work, apparently that worked quite well, because knellephant said I got an A. Along with everyone else in the known universe, excluding Callum. Who got a B. I liked my page of pictures, though, my welsh class spent like 10 minutes staring at them and saying nice things, it was ridiculously confusing - these are the people who've been ignoring me for the past 8 months, and suddenly they are complimenting me? whuuutt. I don't know why I'm telling you this, bloggy, it isn't like anyone who I haven't already told will read this. lulz.

Ohh yes. Did I mention my mother? my mother is currently not talking to me. In fact, in her own words, she has 'disowned' me. would you like to know what horrendous crime I have committed in order to make my own mother disown me? I have said that I didn't want baked beans on toast for dinner. Bloody hell, I may as well have stabbed the dog. and put my foot through the television. How on earth I could have said such a thing! ...oh, wait. 

errmm, I might actually do some psylology revision now (cognitive interviews are designed to increase the accuracy of eyewitness testimony) because I really just should. Psylology revision with a banana split. and gummi bears as a topping. As suggested by Nigel Holt, pigeon lecturer extraordinaire. Ohh yes, psylols revision conference. Basically just Caitlin and Catherine and Psylology for the entire day. I have learned two things, one is that I want to go to Bath Spa university, and the second is that Type A personalities are those who win at life, and as a result, it's only fair that they die early of heart disease. (as quoted from a senior psylology examiner. Do you think I should write it in the exam? I am so tempted.)

Yussssssss. I leave you, O merry readers (of which there are none; the last time my blogs had any comments was several trillion years ago, even though I always comment on ALL of yours, yes EVERY SINGLE ONE
HAZEL GUPPY. You heard me.. where was I? Oh yes. I leave you with some photos that make no sense. Or in fact photos that do. I don't know, I can't really be bothered to decide right now.

this is the last place in Monmouth. I used to go there with my grandmother and her dog, but I lost it a long while ago, along with them. Now it is found and it may be my favourite place here.

this is the same place. yup.

this is Catherine, but perhaps it is not. It kinda reminded me of all the photos my nan had from the 1970s (Scanning in the rest when I find the scanner again!) this picture makes me smile.

This may be my favourite photo of late; I adore that setting and that dress and and and.

This one is Hazelys, but I love it. s'meeeeeeeee. It only works cause you can't see my face ;D
and finally..

wheeee :)
