A good thing to report, finally: I am, at last, moving out. Am only actually moving across the other side of town because I have realised lately that actually I really like the community I have in St Helens, and I am settled here now. And the house is gorrrrrrgeous, and I have a housemate who seems nice and none psycho like. So yes, moving some stuff in over there on Sunday. yay.

I have a lot of reasons to be happy right now. This is an exciting time for me, in a really scary kind of way. Handling my time right now could really make my career, and I am totally up for the challenge. A friend at work told me today that it's like it's all pulled together at the right time, and it really has. Things are very good.

Ok, so I had a slightly up and down kind of few weeks, maybe it was hormones, maybe that february feeling, whatever, the point is I'm over it and I am firmly back in the house... Things are good, masters is hard, but good, went to a launch of an art show in Lpool on thurs which brings me to the next thing... Everyone that knows me well knows that I am arty, that I love painting, that I do it a lot, and that I am famously reluctant to let anyone see it. This year I've been doing this whole openess thing, it's working pretty well, even though it scares me. Ok, so some things hurt more that way, but hey, it's an improvement. Anyway, part of this has been showing some of my work on myspace, which more than one person has said I should sell, yes, so not quite going that far (although, open to offers) canvas (the aforementioned art night) is displaying some of my work next month. If any of you are in Lpool on the 22nd and fancy holding my hand for my artistic debut, do come along to 3345.

Ok, so apparently the managers at work have been discussing my gayness with the words 'she just doesn't look the type...'. Excuse me, sorry to be a killjoy, but there is no fucking 'type'. I'm a real lesbian, honest. God, I've only been out for like a decade....

I have an interview this afternoon for a job as an admin assistant. It is *not* what I want to do but the money will be conducive to the things that are important to me, like my masters and eventually having a business. The lifestyle choices graduates have to make are abysmal.

One day til the weekend....

work sucks. big time. have realised that I am wasting my time trying to get where I want to be going on this route, would be better to try and find more money to get where I want to be quicker. Soooo, have sold out to the corporate satan and applied for two jobs doing french speaking customer service. God dam.

In other news, I would like to take a poll: what (if anything) do you get someone that you are kind-of-but-not-officially-seeing for valentines day? Bearing in mind that I hate roses and refuse to be sucked in.

Right now, I am really *not* enjoying my job. But I am enjoying other things. Like the obvious. She is lovely to me. And very sweet. And we have still not had the 'are you my girlfriend' talk which is also nice. Although, that is not to say that I would not very much like to have it in the near future.lol.

Is it really mean if I delete a message on myspace from heather without even reading it? I just know that it will be some pointed bitchy comment and I am reluctant to relinquish my happy mood right now.

I just got the cutest text EVER. I am *so* loving 2007. Also, is it really unfair to blatantly flirt with someone else on myspace when u know your ex will read it. Seriously, am trying to be considerate, but those who are women inclined and have seen pictures of my newest love interest will understand the problem I am having with self control. *hot*

i am such a bad employee. am skiving off fire evac training (which, incidentally was scheduled for my day off) to sit at home in my dressing gown nursing my period pains and play the animal game via email with zoe. an easy choice.

6:33 pm - *make you like the way they feel when they're under your skin*
Hey hey! Got back from Oslo last night which was a wicked, wicked trip. Highlights:
*seeing the Scream by Edward Munch. If anybody has seen the scene in the Lword where bette sees that painting she loves, it was pretty close to that. That crosses two of my must see before I die paintings off my list.
*me and Katie getting absolutely wankered on saturday night and still managing to sight see on sunday-albeit with a sore liver. LOL.
*general girlie good times.

You also know someone likes you when they call you on the other side of europe just to say hey. Bless.

Going to view a flat in the Northern quarter on friday, fingers crossed.

Currently a very contented little bunny.

4:55 pm - More new years
So, since everyone is doing it, I decided to do this lift one quote from the first entry pf every month thing. so...

some absolute bastard hit my car a couple of weeks ago so my poor poppy has been suffering with a dent in her wheel arch, finally got in touch with a guy my auntie knows who can fix it cheaply so that I can send him the estimate. Bastard.

I still have no real post graduation plans, other than loafing about in a general waft of bohemia, which sounds fine to me, less fine to my parents.

So it's now official that the entire french department (minus my beloved - in a none sexual way- kate) are smoking crack/heroine/joie de vivre/whatever because they are all fecking insane!

But, generally, life is sweet just now (just sugar free ;) )

I'm kind of sick of my degree and ready to finish, but still, spanish and french have been almost daily parts of my life for over 10 years, it's just so weird to think I won't be doing it any more.

Planning a few little trips in the meantime, going to go to Sheffield next week to go to Climax (ahem) with Katie so that she can get hit on by lesbians (as usual) and everyone can assume I'm straight (as usual), and am hoping to get up to Edinburgh for trace's birthday which I am very excited about.

graduation was last thursday, it was fun, but would have been more so if not for aforementioned migraines. Sat next to Michael who thought it was great coincidence we were seated together, until I pointed out that it went according to subject of degree and alphbetical order- and he got a first!!!

Went to Harrogate with my mum for the weekend, and had a brilliant time, it was good to just relax for a little while.

Decided to leave my lifeguarding job and actually get back some focus and start trying to create a damn career.

I got accepted onto the Masters course I wanted to do, starting in February, and I have an interview at a really cool urban art gallery in Manchester next Tuesday, so, hurrah, finally a good thing!

So, for those that didn't know, me and Heather broke up.

Liverpool is...
*Liver Birds that can never fly away

4:44 pm - Happy NYE!
Happy new years to everybody! I am having a rather good day so far, and whilst I fully anticipate being in a delicate condition tomorrow I wish everyone luck, love and happiness for the next 12 months and beyond.

11:05 am - The End of the Affair
So, it is the end of December, it is the end of the year. Or rather it is a beginning. I have decided no more guilt trips about things that weren't my fault, i.e Heather. I deserved to be happy too. So, happy new years to all, should you want me, I'll be seeing in 07 with vodka and my best buds!

2:02 pm - festive fun
I hope everyone had a good christmas. Mine was ok, I expected it to be a little bit sad, it being the first christmas me and heather have spent apart and all that. Maybe it was the fact that I was wankered by 1pm or maybe I am just a well adjusted adult, either way I got through the day. Some amusing quotes though...

me: (already trashed and listening to my new u2 album) Do you think bono would leave his wife for me?
mum: would you leave women for bono?
me: fair point, well made...

Lol. Today I am enjoying my last day off before work starts again. Going to see Perfume later!
