Taking a break from cleaning my room

Well it's more like organising, cause my room is never particularly messy there just happens to be things all over the place and I haven't organised the place since I moved out almost two years ago. During the holidays I just tended to live out of my suitcase cause I could never be bothered to put things away as I didn't see the point. Also my sister comes home tomorrow and we share the room, and I figure it would be easier to pursuade her to put her schizz away of mine was also but away. Last summer was just chaos, but while I'm at home I never really spend that much time in my room cause it essentially doubles as a sauna in the summer.

I have become incredibly bored with Twitter recently, my sister says it's my hipster side, and I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case, so I have been throwing all my time into Get Glue and Blogger and watching TV . I'm still ill, my father blames my resistance to take any medication, I say whatever, it's not like I'm dying, what's a little common cold going to do? I seem to be ill quite a lot, my mother goes on and on about how I don't eat even though I do and how I have a low immune system. I rationalised with; If I'm ill so often then the more medication I take because of it the sooner my system will reject it and it will stop working. Therefore I deem to only consider the option of medication in the winter.

Okay babbling over. Back to organising.

I Should Re-Read Twilight.

I am not usually a big re-reader, I can count the books I have ever reread and so far the list comprises of The Harry Potter Series. One For The Money (The Fist in the Stephanie Plum Series) and The Tulip Touch by Anne Fine which is one of my favourite books for sentimental reasons, that being that it was the first book I ever willingly read in Year 6 that got me hooked on reading in general and well know what an avid reader I am and it's all thanks to that one book so yeah. Okay I'm going off tangent. Being the semi Hipster that I am (I'll explain later) I read twilight before it was popular. (The original cover and everything bitches) But once the hype started and those atrocious movies came out. The love I used to have for Edward Cullen fizzled and died as it got stopped by a crowed of pre-teen excessives. So yeah I was just thinking that maybe I should give that baby another chance and perhaps rekindle that dying flame. I might wait till that last stampede passes through once Breaking Dawn Part 2 has come out. Meh.

I have a cold and I am suffering

Though we know how dramatic I am I do in fact have a cold and it is absolutely retarded because the weather is  hot you could boil an egg on the side walk. There is also no wind and I have barely left my apartment this week. So how this darn cold found its way into me is a mystery.
Also I am heading back to London tomorrow and I am going to collapse from exhaustion with the amount of stuff I've got to carry, plus the heat plus the stupid underground service and it's lack of lifts. Oy. I asked my parents to pick me up from Victoria but my dads got work that afternoon so that's a no go. He called me this morning to tell me off for not telling him/ consulting with him when I was booking my coach for. I let him because I know him well enough to know that while he is blaming him inability to pick me up from the station on me he is really projection his disappointment of not being able to be of assistance. Psychology 101.
Then he told me that it was nearly 11 and that I should get up and find something to eat. I just laughed and laughed at him down the phone before he hung up on me. Standard
In a way I guess it was good that he called so early cause I probably still would have been asleep till about 13:00 and I do actually have quite a bit to do today.
Still haven't found a place to live and still haven't been able to sell my furniture.

Might later on do a post about the DVD's I've watched this week
The list of random quotes I collect and write on my phone
The list of shows I am currently watching
My plans for the summer.

Okay so that list was more like a reminder to myself because I will undoubtedly forget.

So I now love Katie Holmes

Well perhaps Love is a strong word. It's more like my indifference for her has turned into curious likeness. Though perhaps it stems from my like of her character Joey Potter in Dawsons Creek which I have recently just started watching. In fact I finished the first season last night, so who even knows if this sudden interest in her is even real because I tend to base my like of celebrities on their films/music. If I like them in a movie I like them in real life, if they pissed me off in a movie then I don't like them in real life. Submissive I know but that's just the way it goes for me. Plus she is incredibly pretty in this picture which I screen grabbed from an episode of Dawsons Creek.

But hey, this view only comes after watching one season, and I have five more to go so who knows if my view will change?

I'm meant to be packing

I was all pumped to start but I only got as far as dragging out the suitcases from the cupboard. Then I got tired and I am using blogging as a form of procrastination.

Hi My Name's Jen and I'm obsessed with Television.


Okay so I've always known I was a telly addict from a very young age and I ultimately blmae my parents for leaving me and my older sister to our own devices while they went of to work. And with nothing to do the only entertainment once running around in circles got tiresome was to collapse and spend the next 8hours watching TV waiting for our parents to get back.
Now I'm not necessarily complaining because I love television, there's so much to watch and so much to learn and gain understanding from. It actually does sound like I put the TV up on an alter and sacrifice snack to it everyday doesn't it? Oh well. So as I was saying, I love TV, and now with the inclination of the internet I can now happily watch any TV show I like at any time in the day from anywhere I please.

As you may have read I recently started re-watching a show called My So Called Life which I used to watch when I was younger but the only memory I had of said show was a character with red hair names Angela. I rewatched the series and fell in love with it all over again (Though thinking about it now I don't even know if I fully understood some of the issues the show talked about when I watched it at the age of 8ish. Who knows) Anyways it only lasted one season and the last episode was so inconclusive that it left a gaping hole in..... I don't know, it just annoyed me and I obviously wanted to watch more but that was impossible to say the least.

This caused me to go on a ranpage to find and watch anything and everything I hadn't seen before to help me take my mind off it. I had see hints of a website called Get Glue that was ultimately all about Television Shows amongst other things and delved straight into it and I found numerous new shows and old shows to divert my attention. It's a wonderful thing, it's like an addicts personal drug storage facility.
A few shows both old and new that I stumbled upon due to the site's recommendations based on what I said I liked and disliked include:

Don't Trust The B
Common Law
The Legend Of Korra
Dawsons Creek

Some of which it turns out is coming to UK television this summer whilst others were cancelled after a season or whatever. Others I had intended to watch eventually but never got round to it.

As per usual I have lost the point of the post and it has once again become the random psychobabble of a psycho.

I've just come back from my very first concert

I kinda guess it counts. Granted it wasn't a band I was particularly interested in seeing, and that I was getting paid to be there.... but it did give a very good idea of the atmosphere that was to be expected when I go to a concert for real. Also looking at all the people that were there that were of all ages I guess there's kind of no rush. Except if you favourite artist decides to split up or whatever.
But yeah, but the thing is that aren't any artists that are currently touring that I would pay to see, I like a lot of music but it's a short list of those I would love to see live. Plus it doesn't help that the odd few split up years ago *Cough* N SYNC *End Cough*
But yeah fun times all round, though to be honest I am fed up with the amount of First Day Of Work I have had over my short stint in the working world. Trust me when I say it is far to many.

At first I was a bit meh when I found out what gig I was working because like I said I didn't have any particular interest in them. But then they started singing and I realised that I did actually know a good handful of songs. That and who doesn't love Irish guys..... especially when they start gyrating on stage?

Plus hey lucky me that I got a chance to watch their farewell tour.
Good job Boyzone Westlife :)

Finished with my first year of Uni. Thank goodness, took me long enough. Don't quote know what to do with myself not heading back to London fro at least another two weeks.
