So Amy Winehouse died yesterday

This post isnt dedicated to her, its just cause when someone told me yesterday i was like "Oh no, for reals that's so random" and they were all "Is that it?" im all "Is what it?" and then they're all "Arent you gonna say anything else about her"

Now this isnt me being morbid or mean or whatever but i just never really bothered with Amy Winehouse, she could sing but i only new two of her songs (Valery and Rehab) Im not just gonna act like im her biggest fan. Obvs its sad shes dead but her music wasnt my taste if she was ever mentioned on the news about going to rehab id change the channel (mostly cause i dont watch the news) So yeah thats all. Im not hating, its sad that she's dead but please dont expect me to be choked up about it. If Britney or someone i actually grew up listening to and loved dpes ever pass away then expect me to be stifled with guilt.

The End

Fearless

I wanna re-read the fearless books by Francine Pascal.

Think that's the longest series book i've ever read, it has 36 books in the series and i don't think i ever got to read the last 2 or 3 cause i just couldn't get it in this country, but i own the first one.

My friend randomly had a post card of it and that's how i heard of it and i read it and loved it. Each book only has around 200 pages so i used literally just devour it in one night some times. I remember when i went on holiday to Pennsylvania to see my aunt and i asked her to take me to the library and she looked a bit shocked cause i coulda gone to the mall. But nope to the library i went and i found the last book and i read the first and last 50 pages. Cant actually remember what happens.

Also there was a spin off series but obviously i didn't get to finish the original so there was no point in me jumping onto that band wagon.

Was randomly watching an episode of the Gilmore Girls yesterday (The road trip to harvard after Lorelai runs away cause she doesnt wanna marry Max) and Rory mentioned that she'd only read 300 books and she was 16. I know ive read at least 500 cause until i go to university i used to read at least 100 books a year since year 8. But then she reads the really complex ones and she re reads a lot of books. Shes adorable.

The Wondrous Boat Ride

Round the world and home again 
That's the sailor's way 
Faster faster, faster faster 

There's no earthly way of knowing 
Which direction we are going 
There's no knowing where we're rowing 
Or which way the river's flowing 

Is it raining, is it snowing 
Is a hurricane a-blowing 

Not a speck of light is showing 
So the danger must be growing 
Are the fires of Hell a-glowing 
Is the grisly reaper mowing 

Yes, the danger must be growing 
For the rowers keep on rowing 
And they're certainly not showing 
Any signs that they are slowing


Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Get Busy Living or Get Bust Dying

From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How my worst fears are letting out
He said why put a new address
On the same old loneliness
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die
Now talking's just a waste of breath
And living's just a waste of death
And why put a new address
On the same old loneliness
And this is you and me
And me and you
Until we've got nothing left



Fall Out Boy

I realise i never really post any pictures so here's a few random ones that i just have on my phone

My younger sister

Rainbow on the way home from a training day.

My first day at the Chocolate Factory

We all got the days we were and werent working on the induction day a few weeks back, but every week they send out the rota telling you where your working in the factory. So i looked through mine on Friday after training and saw that on my first day (Monday) no one from my training group was going to be working. Now being by myself is never an issue but i was just a bit iffy about lunch cause its a big room and all the tables are for 4 or more and that would be a little obvious sitting by myself in the middle of the room with no book or music and no phone, cause your not allowed to use your phones within the factory in case any of us happen to be taking pictures of the merchandise and sending picture messages to Mr Slugworth. Its completely understandable.

But yeah it wasn't too bad, cause it was my first real day they let me shadow this girl who'd had started a few weeks before. We were first at the counters selling tickets to people who just turned up for the day. Then we had lunch together then we were on the phones in the afternoon.

This i was not prepared for. I thought i was gonna be at the counter all day so i was gonna use my days off to read over my telephone notes. No such luck. I went and got my phone login details and took that opportunity to apologise to the supervisor in advance for the amount of times i would most likely come up and disturb him. He told me not to apologise which was really nice. Granted i did come up a million times but each time they just smiled at me and told me not to worry which again was really nice. I think i was just uber surprised cause ive worked in quite a few call centres and the supervisors or whoever you go to for help just seem really annoyed at you even if its your first and only day. Though a few people have told me that they monitor your calls on the first day and play it back to you in a one on one and give you ways to improver. Even though i knew this before hand i still know i sound like a bored school child on the phone no matter what.

All in all i was pleased with my first day and its a shame i cant take a picture of my uniform to show you cause in my white shirt, waistcoat, blazer and ankle length skirt i look like one sexy bitch ;)

Here are some pictures i did manage to take on my phone

Windsor Castle

The Round thingy at Windsor

One of the Ceilings, cause they were pretty beautiful

The Kings Bed....Or the Dukes

Blurry picture of King Henry VIII and one of his wives

Another part of the Castle

Changing of the guards

St Georges Chapel

This is a clock that i love that was on display the time i went to The Queens Gallery

Some guards
Thats all i have the others were pretty blurry, some cool things i did see include Queen Mary's Dolls house which is pretty massive for a dolls house and was given to her on her 16th Birthday and which was never actually played with. Cant find a decent sized picture on the net sadly.

Ive made it through my training week

That basically means one week down and 6 weeks to go.

Im not legally allowed to mention where i work on any social networking site or blogs and stuff which is kinda sad cause i do take pleasure in blogging about my experiences especially cause it means i get to look back over them in a few months or even years and cause you paint such a specific picture its almost like your there again.

Anyways, for legal reasons i just say i work at The Chocolate Factory :)

So i had my training week at the Chocolate Factory this week and it was one hectic day after another, it involved me waking up at 6am every morning and leaving the house between 7 and 8 to get to work for 9:30 and sometimes 9.
Monday: Wasn't too bad as we were just at computers and there wasnt really a lot of time for talking or whatever, but it was cool cause we all sat together at lunch. And lunch is the best part of the day, its free for one and its a 3 course lunch, one day we had a roast and i was literally like :O It almost makes up for the fact your paying for travel cause its not like you have to pay for food.

Tuesday: We went through how to use the telephones to take chocolate orders and oh wow it was a complicated thing to behold. We literally went through it for the whole day. That like 9:30 till 4:30 minus and hour for lunch....6hours, and we even got folders with pictures and we got given note pads and it honestly felt like being in school. But it wasn't to bad and the guy we had teaching us assured us that there'd be people around to help us every step of the way.

Wednesday: We got split into two groups and we went live on the phones. It wasnt too bad cause i got mostly enquiring calls and a few people just wanting a single chocolate bar, gladly i didnt get anyone wanting a bulk of chocolate.

Thursday: I went on a day out to Windsor Castle. We got the tickets for free just as a learning experience day and it was actually really interesting. At first we just wanted to wiz through it but before we knew it we were asking questions and watching guard changes. We were done by noon then hopped off to nandos where i got my free half chicken ^_^ The train wasnt ready to depart yet so we went to the park and played on the swings for a while. An all in all fun day out and it was cool cause we all got a little closer

Friday: I cant really remember, we had a few presentations about disabled access into the factory but thats all i remember, then after we got a free tour around buckingham palace, but sadly the Queen was having a garden party so we only got to see the Fabrage exhibition and the main Ballroom where the dutchess of cambridges dress was going to be displayed, which is more than what the last group got to see. The room could fit about 2 and a half of my house inside of it. I was literally that flabaghasted and if you know me then you know it takes a lot to make me speechless. Oh yeah that was it, we got counter training as well, for people that come and by Factory tickets on the day.

Saturday: We started at 10 and had a training day about how to deal with ushering the public into the factory queues and all that malarky, we were done by 2 but me and a few others decided to stay a few extra hours and do some batching, which is basically putting peoples Faatory tour tickets into envelopes with the right leaflets etc. Did that for 2 hours it went quite quickly actually.

Sorry i dont have any pictures to show. Obvs you cant take pictures of yourself at work and if i took a picture of my lunch then that would just be bizarre.

Aspirations

Are already in place for the coming academic year. This includes me learning how to speak Spanish, getting back into gymnastics and learning to play and instrument. Im personally feeling the violin. But i could try my hand at guitar again? I say again when really i didnt try that hard :)

Okay thats all, just a quick lil whats on my mind post. Maybe i should do these more often to make up for when i dont do uber long ones.

I realise these posts are uber short

Ann probably feel like 140 characters or less, but like i blogges, im really doing nothing interesting and if  i blogged about anything right now it would be a huge rant about how ah-noying my parents are and how unfair they treat me and it id probably end up sounding like the middle child in in after school special. Even though all my points are totally justifyable. Also id rant about how i have no money whatsoever and that even after my summer job i probably wont have anything left to have fun with.
Il do a quick under 140 charcater summary

Dad: Manipulative, unfair, and doesnt keep to his word. Will promise somthing just to keep you quiet
Mum: Crazy, shes actually nuts im sure, that and she's incredibly cheap when it come to me needing something
Money: 25% of my wages will be going on travel, 25% to pay back part of my overdraft, 25% on first months rent and 25% on furniture

Yeah that's a good summary. But this was last weeks problems, I've totally moved past this stuff now.

Like any good sitcom, yesterdays issues have nothing to do with today's episode.

Oooh yeah i like that :)

Happy

July
and Independence day for America

I love america and american things, heck they produce such good TV if i didnt like America id be one big assed hypocrite i kid you not. Been watching American TV since i was born, thats why my English vocabulary is so screwed up.

Okay so i know a post is loooong overdue

But to be honest i havent actually been doing anything interesting.

My days literally consist of me waking up between 12 and 2
Going downstairs and watching a movie till my siblings get back from school
Then we'd watch whatever show we need to...or finish/start a movie
Then my mum would come back from work and complain
We'd make dinner
We'd eat dinner
We'd watch some more TV
They go upstairs and i'd watch a few of my movies/TV shows
Id go upstairs and take a shower
Then end up staying on the computer till 1 doing nothing
Attempt  but usually fail to read
Then konck out between 1 and 4

Do it all again the next day.
