I really do need to pay more attention to this blog. Well over a month till the last update, shocker! Not that many people are that interested in my life.

So much has happened over this past month, Ive barely had time to stop and think.

First up I finally own my own set of wheels. Beatrice, my beautiful green corsa. Oh i love her. She is such a beauty, proudest car owner alive! I love the freedom she gives me, i now longer have to beg for lifts. I can go any place anytime and dont have to justify it to anyone. The other week I had an arguement with the fella and I just stormed out and drove home. I came back 10 minutes later but still it felt good. Usually id have to sit there and sulk in his house for the entire night. Ill post some pictures of my lovely when I remember. Helen, my babeface, they will be especially for you :)

Secondly I am now a qualified Brownie Leader which means I can have a brownie pack in any place in the country. Slightly owrrying though that parents would trust me to look after their kids! I get my presentation soon. This is prehaps one of my proudest achivevments and yes I know how much this makes me look like a geek. Bothered!

Thirdly I spent a few days in Ireland visiting the other halfs family. I have completely and utterly fallen in love with that country. I love the people, the culture, the irish music in the pubs, the hills and the relaxed way of life. It was everything I expected and more. I cant wait to go back at Easter. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

Fourthly I am now back at dreaded Uni and my stress levels have already hit the roof. I cant wait for this year to be over and then its into the real world. Ill be doing a job that Ill have been dreaming off since i was 11. Hello Sophie Warner, the Journalist.

Now these, I really need these. They will so help me get my music Mojo back.

My low affair with High tops is back on.

God they are fit.

White please :)



Well wasnt Reading just the most fantastic experience in the world.

The Libertines were fucking out of this world. So good that they just needed a swear word in the sentence! It was so so emotional listening to them, they were the first proper band that I got into. I remember listening in my bedroom memorising every lyric when I was 14 and just falling completely in love with them. They were the terrible threes band, we knew every word and everything about their lives. It was worth the £180 just to see them. My new Libertines t shirt is not my pride and joy!

We are Scientists did not disappoint either, they rocked just like always. I love the banter that happens on stage. I really need to buy their second and third albums im living in the dark ages. Mystery Jets were amazing too, dying to find out when their next tour is even if its just to hear "after dark" live again. "Last Train Home" by Lostprophets gave me shivers, what a tune!

Reading has inspired me to start getting back into music. I used to spend every spare dollar I had buying NME and sourcing the internet for new up and coming bands. I wanted to find a band that no one else knew about. I used to go to gigs as often as I went to the loo. I cannot remember the last time Ive discovered a band, all the music i listen too is "old". The Strokes, Libertines and Bloc Party, I have religiously been in love with since I was 14. I want to fall madly in love with a new band.

From now on im going to start going to a lot more gigs and discover my music mojo.
