Dancing to Lady Gaga

And so today was another day of studying... sad times. BUT what made it better was this song. My best friend (and housemate) Anna and I, when we got tired with our books put it on loud and danced wildly round the room. I particularly like the 'LA LA UH HA HA LA LA RAMAMA GAGA OOH LALA' bit (if anyone knows what I'm talking about?,

Oh blog friends, please leave me sweet comments and make me happy as i sit here with my books, how are you all?

Inspirations to Brighten Your Day

Hello wonderful blog readers! How are you?

So today I was having a bit of a down day because its been beautifully sunny and I was stuck inside with my books. But sometimes stopping and taking a moment to appreciate and be inspired helps.....

I love the quotes above. It just shows you how much hope, passion, inspiration can fuel your dreams- but remember you have to work hard to achieve them!
As I come to the end of university and into the 'real world' where I need to make my dreams happen, this is what is on my mind.

Remember to keep hoping and loving, even in the darkest hour because.... this too shall pass! So, smile!

With love...

Hi everyone

At the moment I am doing an academic essay on the Rihanna and Chris Brown domestic violence case- analysing linguistics of an interview she gave on it, and its relation to the place of woman/social status in society. Complex stuff.

It has made me appreciate what a great, talented, strong woman Rihanna is! I love her. Wish I was as pretty as her too!

Fun Trips...and Pre-Weekend Joy.

a lovely pub i visited in windsor
windsor castle at night!

images: flickr via google.

Hi everyone.

So last night I went with my friend Anna to her friends birthday in Windsor (home of windsor castle and all things royal!). I hadn't been since I was much younger, and after driving for nearly an hour as the sun was setting, we arrived.

Windsor is so beautiful, full of green, open spaces :) We went to a little pub called the Two Brewers which was filled with black and white photos, wine corks covered the walls, the ceilings were low and it was a little, homely, traditional pub. I loved it. Was great to meet new people too! The pub is right by Windsor Park, and we previously walked through it at dusk to get there.

Had a wonderful evening, and now I am preparing to go down and stay with friends in Wimbledon with my sister. So I must be off!

What are your plans for the weekend?

Have a lovely one.
