the rest of my life....

May. 8th, 2007 | 12:20 am
where am i?: home, watching snooker final and revising and updating!!
how do i feel?: bouncybouncy

oh my god, so this time next week i will have officially finished my degree and will be an adult.

fuck.

part  of me really wants it to be over, so i can get on with my life and stop commuting to fucking london, and the other part of me wants to be student forever, and will really miss the view of battersea power station from the train.

so i have to figure out what to do, if not for the rest of my life, then for the rest of the year...

1. get out my sewing machine again. i have had to hide it for a month so i wasnt distracted. and it worked, i mean, i did my dissertation and revised. shock fucking horror. but the poor baby is now all dusty and probably resents me. 
i have, though, had loads of ideas what to make and do. by the end of the summer i am determined to get a small collection together and get my stuff into at least one shop.

1.a. whirr up the skirtyflirty.com again, like promote and update. like crazy. this, hopefully, will work partly by getting stuff out there and word of mouth and stuff.

2. get enough crafty stuff together for craft fairs this summer, and press gang people into coming to them with me and making stuff to sell. probably not a lucrative business, but im sure it will be fun.

3. make mum's website. i totally forgot that she said she would give me £200 for doing it for her. i think i could knock it together in a week if i concentrate, so that would be good. but i have forgotton how to use computers again after so long just word processing, but i have a huge brain and i'm sure i'll figure it out.

4. volunteer in theatre. or maybe get paid. i doubt it, but i can but hope. you must be positive about these things. paul mckenna says so, and who am i to question his husky voice?

5. and on top of all that, i have to find a proper job. by proper i mean one that pays me money and i resent the employers for sapping my soul, and where i beat myself up for working too damn hard. i'm gonna try and get one in rochester so i dont have to drive, cos i cant afford that any more. 

6. get buff. i properly exercised the other day - i went on a bikeride up and down the river on my own, and i felt so amazing afterwards. i forgot what unneccessary exercise makes you feel like. i was so high off good feelings that emily and pip were visibly irked by my perkiness.

well, i think they are my main, realistic priorities. things i can actually acheive with very little effort. 
maybe in september i'll look at this and think "shit" all i've done is bitched and moaned. but i doubt it somehow. i have a good feeling about this year.

now i'm an adult with actual responsibilities (hah!) i have no time to dream. sorry, but i am juggling my busy busy life.
yeah right, i am totally dreaming.

love xx

and god speed, my children

things that have struck me in the head

Feb. 6th, 2007 | 04:33 am
where am i?: home, duh dhuhdhuh
how do i feel?: tiredtired
what am i hearing?: Bravo : World's WILDEST videos, 17

Well, my biological timeclock is totally upside down right now, which ain't helping my PROPER work, but is getting a lot of Skirty Flirty stuff done.

Two things have made an impression on me in the last few days... two lovely quotes that i hope to use in conversation any day now....

1. "Unfortunately, my eloquence was blunted by his charisma"
2. "The attacker then pistol-whipped him with an ouzi"

My life has also been made richer by the indulgent and unnecessary purchase of the QI book. its like having Steven Fry in my head. and i am full of many incredibly complex facts that may help me make friends. at least i hope so, cos my existing friends are sick of me theologising about penis bones.

It is dawning on me how hard it is to get people to go to a website. i really cant be arsed with sending any more sucking up emails to get link exchanges. but it must be done. at least i get to use the word "vibe".

I still have no idea what on earth to do after Uni. everyone seem sto have made their mind up, and my dad gave me a 'discreet' careers-advice chat the other day, which improbably concluded with him decided that i should be a rural estate agent on a basket-clad bike, out of the mould of Kirsty Allsop.

During the aforementioned chat, his girlfriend challenged me on why i actually went to Uni without knowing what i wanted to do as a career. she seemed suprised when i said i just went cos i thought it would be interesting. isnt that the case with everyone? i mean, i do Art History for god's sake. it's hardly practical, is it? Until my little sister graduates as a crime-solving psychologist,  my dreams of busting art-fraud syndicates will have to wait.

to break up this monochrome verdana monotone, here's a space monkey...

how do i feel?: exhaustedexhausted

oh man i just typed out a massive spiel and deleted it. i was witty, insightful, all those things you have come to expect from me. i didnt rant once (ok, maybe a little) but now its gone and i cant be arsed to do it again, so here's some pictures instead that i took with Lizi on wednesday.
they are rigged up for myspace usage, but you get the idea.

oh and last night had first proper night out in London for FAR to long. we went to a bar/club called the cellar door in Aldwych, its a converted underground toilets, and it was FABULOUS, all red leather seats and mirrored walls and artful lighting. i am too tired to be enthusiastically descriptive, so i'll keep the blabbering to myself for now.
night night xx

what a waste of time.... 2 fuckin days....

Jan. 3rd, 2007 | 02:22 am
how do i feel?: bitchybitchy
what am i hearing?: south park

just finished reading the Da Vinci code

i am angry on SO many levels

i can't even go into it cos i'll sound like one of those da vinci freaks i vowed i would never be.

but... just one thing that pissed me off. British people say "goosebumps" NOT "gooseflesh". and mirror writing.... how OBVIOUS is that? they are SO stupid.

Christmas Photo-Bonanza

Dec. 26th, 2006 | 11:52 pm
where am i?: home
how do i feel?: cheerfulcheerful
what am i hearing?: state and main, for, like, the 3rd time this month.

Well, I guess Christmas is over now.
It was good, i guess. Never really got going, and i feel REALLY bad, because despite the no-presents aggreement, my mum and my sister both showered me with gifts. They totally suck. The rules are there for a reason, but, hey, we all love presents right? even if they do come laced with emotional manipulation...

So, here's PART ONE of the Alice Sage Three days of Christmas Photo Story


so.... hoped you all had a good time. time to think of easy-to-keep resolutions now, eh?

al xxxxxxxx

ok.... right now my computer is downloading a song off myspace, importing a cd AND uploading to my ipod, AND playing music into my ears.

ALL AT THE SAME TIME

i'm worried about jinxing it, but i'm so proud of the little thing.

who's behind the curve now, Wigmore??
