Well, I told you guys I'd give little updates once in a while, didn't I?

So basically, here's what's been going on:

  • I will never see Jason Holmes again. Or at least, we both hope. Basically, Jason's crazy. He thinks he knows how I feel, what I think, and decided to fuck me around for three months before exploding into a load of batshit-eating crazy at me. Fuck him, I don't want to have anything to do with him.
  • I got into Northumbria Uni!! Fuck Durham, it's too far away. Before I started this journal, I got turned down from Northumbria Uni, and was pretty much devestated. I got a letter from them yesterday, offering me a part time course in Care and Education! Fucking YES =]
  • Uh.. what else? Art sucks. I have an Art exam in two days, and still a shitload of work to do for it. I hate Art!! But by the end of the week, I'll never have to do it again (well, not in school or anything). So that'll be cool.
And well, since I should go and do that work now, that's all really. Hope you guys are all well xxxx

You know, when I got this blog, I was in a shit place. Jason and I had just broken up, among other shitty things, and I suppose this was a fantastic place of comfort, and getting things off my chest.

Through LJ, I've looked back on posts and realised that my life is one completely worth living. I've seen the highs and lows, and completely appreciated my life.

I've made some great friends, too. I really love you guys.

But now I think it's time to go. I'm better now, and I've come to realise, I need to LIVE life, not just write about it.

So, I think, this might be the end of LJ. That said, I'm keeping my account open, and well, I might just come back.

But you guys are all fantastic, you really are. And I'd love to hear from you lot, I've made some great friends. So here they are, the all important contact details. I hope you guys drop me a line or add me on something. I'll give my address too, if you email me.

Thanks a lot guys, it's been a fantastic ride, it really has.

Mother fuck, mother fuck, noise noise noise


Oh yea...

.. and Adam, y'know why you were wondering why Jason and I kept disapearing everytime you went for a slash yesterday?

Was because we were making out in your kitchen! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Love you man!

This week's been a bit of a blur, like, lol!

So, playedinloops, I love you!
Being completely shit-faced last night, I was going to post a pretty overdue update, but then thought "Fuck it, no one cares man, no one's even asked if I'm dead or not". But this morning, playedinloops restored my faith in LJ.

Basically, I've been off my face lol.

Here's how it goes:

It was Adam's birthday this week, so we've been partying pretty hard! It's been pretty cool, Adam's like, my best mate (Jason doesn't count, lol), and sometimes I think there's no one around here parties as hard as we do- but we say FUCK IT and do it anyways, even if it's just the two of us, haha!

So yea, we went to Luckies and Hustlers, with a table FULL of pints, and everything's been in a whirl after that!

On the Jason front: well, I didn't see him a lot in the past couple of weeks, he's been ill, and then on Friday, he sprained his ankle playing football- noes! But he's okay =] Also on that topic, I got a mint text message from his mam yesterday, saying she's really proud of me for getting into Durham and stuff, and I saw Simon, his brother yesterday too. It was really cool, I've missed his family a lot.

Oh yea, and we're going to the cinema on Tuesday, methinks- SCORE!

So it's all going well where Jason's concerned, really. I love him a lot =]

Oh yea, it was free comic book day yesterday- so I got some free comics and then went to Adams.. where I got shit-faced and left them there- SHIT!!

Anything else? Oh yea- COLLEGE SUCKS! Hahah!

There's probably more, I might update again today!

Other than that....

I'm back, ba

Remember that dream I had last week?

It happened.

Don't worry, he didn't even see me across the street, and I'm a lot less shook up than I thought I would be. I should have known that this was going to happen, really, Newcastle isn't that big.

The worst part? When I turned around, I really was alone.

I suppose this is just what I needed to force me to get used to the fact I'll be alone now.

Fuck this.

Fantastic, eh?

Just got this from John, about my photography last night:

wow she fantastic! -ma mum

Wow man, people really love my stuff! I saw a few messages on The Offenders' MySpace too, asking about me. Wow, really cool, man! I love how people really like my stuff. This is the best hobby in the world ever. I might take it up as a job in the weekends, while I'm not teaching.. or even now, when I'm not in college or uni I could do it =D

WOW! Thanks to everyone for their lovely comments, I appreciate it a lot!

Just for that, here's another picture:


The Offenders.

So, last night was the night The Offenders played The Academy. And I was there to take everything in.

I got there about 4.30- before any fucker else, it turns out, as I met Adam and we got stuck waiting for about 20 minutes for the rest of the band. So we got in, with Sexy Chords, while the two other bands still had time to come in. Took all out crap upstairs to the "dressing room"- wanna know what the dressing room was? A tiny corridor with a light up mirror on it. Not even joking. Almost as bad as the Gillman, lmao.

Either way, soundchecks took forever- they were still sounchecking at 7, when the doors were supposed to open. I blame In Cities, who are cunts, after all. Nevermind! On with the show, and I was basically going between the crowd and backstage, like I do. I saw an old friend, Vicki, there, which was really cool. Apart from that, I spent my time making friends- for some reason everyone wanted to be friends with the photographer last night- I didn't mind, really, lol.

So, 15 minutes before Sexy Chords play, they ask me to do their set too. Jesus! I said yes, they were nice enough guys, and on with the set, really. So, here's a photo:

As always, you guys can check out the pictures on my website:

After that, I decided to go out for some air (since I could, muah ha), where I met Kyra, a friend of Jason's. She seemed really nice, I'll have to remember to say hi if I see her in college. Just as I was about to go in, I could hear it. The Offenders went on early. FUCK!! RUN!!!

And up I went to do my set. There was a lot of rushing about, going from one photography spot to the other (with a crowd in between, since there's no spece in front of the barrier in Academy 2!), trying to get the best pictures and stuff, whle having a great time. The Offenders are really great. John really knows how to work a crowd, it turns out!

Anyways, on uploading these, however, it fucks up halfway through, and Nate gave in for today, but there'll be better pictures soon on there. My favourites had to be the ones that cut off! Oh, apart from this one:

And, like I say, all can.. will.. be found here:

Not bad since I was pretty drunk by then!

When you're doing a whole photography set plus touch ups (that could take a whole weekend) free for a band, you'd think they could at least get everything sorted. They want backstage shots, but didn't sort out how to get me there. They want on stage pictures, but haven't sorted out things with security.

Unless they want shitty camera phone pictures and me more pissed off with them, they need to get their act together!

Pfft, last time I do something nice for free!!

PS- Sorry about the lack of comments lately, I'll work my way through the friends page when I get some time to myself!

My fucking t shirt didn't come!!

I had a horrible dream last night. I'm walking around town, as I do, and then I see him. Kaz- ex boyfriend, hit me, terrified. He's across the road, walking my way. I turn.. and there's no one there behind me. I am alone.

I woke up, and well, I felt pretty alone. Without Jason or friends around me, I suppose that's just what I was.

After going to the stupid law thing (oh yea, I didn't go to his to do work, he had to babysit), I took Jason to a cool guitar shop I know about. I suppose I know all the cool shops for crap like that. We went back to the pretty place. We were messing about and talking, and then he came and lay on the grass next to me and kissed me.

"Sorry, couldn't resist", he said. We both laughed.. and then kissed again. And again and again =]

"I miss you", I said.

"I know", Jason replied. "But I'm right here."

And you know what? He is. He's always there, he loves me, and we're going to be okay. And for the first time today, I felt like I wasn't alone anymore. I love days like this.

Did I mention my fucking t shirt didn't come today??
