As busy as I claim to be, I've still got the greatest job in the world...


...or not. No seriously, it is a really nice place to work. I have met a lot of new people the last few weeks... some a bit more random than others, but at least they are not boring! Today we are going to have a BBQ to celebrate that we survived A level day. An amazing BBQ with all my friends and others!
Talking about A level day. I worked from 8am until 10pm so you can imagine how tired I have been. It was really nice to speak with many of you and luckily I was able to offer some applicants a place at our University. This weekend we had an Open Day as well, and I was suited up to answer all your questions. The funny thing was that one lady sat in front of me and I recognised her voice. However, I was not sure if it was the person I was thinking of, so I took her student ID number and checked her on our system. Surprisingly it was her and I was really happy to speak to her in person (especially because she sounded pretty on the phone... and she was).
At work, Taz and I launched a trend... wearing the same colours at the same day... yesterday it was pink and the day before it was red. Uzma told us that she wanted to join as well, but unfortunately she was not showing up in the right colours, so that was kinda disappointing. The fact that she didn’t feel well is a minor issue... because now I don’t have a picture to put on...
At the Open Day and with the Clearing Hotline I have a lot of fun. Even though, I am knackered after my days work, I am always looking forward to going back to work. But in about two weeks time it is going to be a bit better. I will be going to Holland for a short break to visit my friends and family! Blaze, Edgar and Tiffany (my colleague-friends) will be joining me too! It is going to be fun... walking through Amsterdam, visiting Berlin and having Dutch food and drinks.... see you soon!

Oh I am ginger....

Not really, ok well I am sort of, but I did not know any other way to introduce my blog. My new housemate is from Scotland and the only word I can say in proper Scottish accent is ‘ginger’. He just moved in last week and, if I may say so, he is an improvement on my previous housemate. He fixed the internet and our TV, he put a lock on our shower door and he helped me winning money with an online poker game!
Talking about being Scottish, Frankie Boyle is an amazing comedian. He is hilarious and I have been watching all his YouTube clips last weekend, which reminds me for some reason about my plan to travel to Bath. One of my friends said to me ‘do you want to go to bath with me?’  I was like ‘why do you want to take a bath together?’ It took a while, but then I realised she meant Bath and not bath... so anyway we are going to Bath for a day... and I will upload pics soon!
Another embarrassing moment occurred last Sunday. I was wearing my favourite baggy shorts, which are just a size or two too large. Anyway, I love them and they feel really ‘free’. Well, I went outside to put the rubbish in the bin and while I was standing on the steps in front of my house, greeting my neighbours, whoosh, my shorts fell down. I was standing there in my boxer shorts, which was rather embarrassing. So to save myself, I said ‘nice day isn’t it?... picked up my shorts and went inside... I think I recovered very well...
Oh and I just remembered, my teacher training course (PGCE LLS) will start soon. Just one month to go and I am getting rather nervous.... new people (nice) new experiences (nice) new environment (nice)... new school (challenge J)
