Oh hey look I did some exercise. It was originally me begging Ashley to just let me do two miles, then it was badminton then it went back to running, and one more mile didn’t seem so bad after all.
I’m quite happy with it, it felt easier than the last run and Ashley didn’t push me too hard, it’s nice that he’s determined to get me running faster :)
Shame I’m determined to keep running sloowwwwwww :)

Today is my sister’s birthday, so mother and myself made a cake, she did the baking, I did the decoration, clearly those years doing art at A-level weren’t wasted.
I HAVE DONE SCIENCE TODAY. I made my cell food and prepared some of the solutions and got some donkey work out the way, This time next week I could be looking at my second set of results, THANK GOD. I’ve had some obstacles mind, there are 3 of us working in the lab and one girl refuses to share a pipette (it’s a special type) which quite frankly, is ridiculous, you’re not the only one who needs to transfer things. I digress, I have started and that’s all that matters.

Just think, the rate Leo DiCaprio is going, he’ll get a “Lifetime Achievement” Oscar in a few years….
Thighs are in pain, good pain though, good pain.
Having to constantly revise means only one thing, I am going through a lot of TV shows. I’ve just finished yet another rerun of Firefly, I’ve watch 4seasons of Will and Grace, back to back, and I have just downloaded Almost Human (good afternoon Mr Urban).
Amazon have just added Parks and Rec on their on demand, so I’m going to have a bash at that. I’m basing my choices of TV on gifs that I have seen on here, it has been both enlightening and slightly worrying at times.
Any suggestions? I’ve finished the Borgia’s and now there is a Cesare shaped hole in my life that needs filling (I think it was the hair, or the constant nudity, ah who knows, it’s over…. ) although Mr. Urban is good enough for now, actually I think I like Dorian more, good lord first the Dwarves of Middle Earth and now Androids….. I need to get out the house….
Hope your all having a good weekend, I’ve joined a small book club and the first book is Emma, which I have been trying to avoid like the plague for years, so I’m giving it a bash, chapter or so a night, hopefully even if I don’t like it (although I do appreciate a classic) I can say I’ve read it.
MY RUN WAS FANTASTIC.
I think I’ve been ill, I’ve had cold chills for two days and I constantly feel hungover, despite not looking at a drop of alcohol (seriously, I had one glass of wine in January, and I haven’t been drunk since June). Either way, I pushed myself on that run, and my thighs feel like rocks (I love that feeling, is that just me?)
I’m going to be in pain tomorrow, but who cares, I enjoyed my run, it was sunny, warm, with a slight breeze, I wore sunglasses. YES, I KNOW, SUNGLASSES, IN MARCH.
I slept in this morning, woke up just as the gun for Parkrun would have gone off. My bad.
1st March 2014
So today I’ve been to visit Emily in York today, ooh eventful, I know!
We’ve squeezed Emily into children’s sleepwear, (long story), and found that the BBC are filming a Christmas special in York minster tonight, which for some reason involves a large bouncy castle type thing being blown up inside the cathedral, for “lighting reasons”. I also had a small “omg I follow them on Tumblr” moment in Orban Outfitters (when did nineties MC Hammer style come back into fashion, there are scrunchies EVERYWHERE) and bought a new coat which I think speaks “classy professional individual who is prepared for any oncoming rain”.
Lovely day, Parkrun tomorrow, and then revision all weekend.

So this is what my life involves at the moment, I have eaten my body weight in sugary food and raspberry sorbet (that stuff is possibly the nicest dessert on the face of the earth) and that revision is on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
The thing about Forensic Medicine is that it’s really interesting, but at the same time we have to touch on topics that are quite sensitive, and I’m not the only one in the class who has said that they find the topic really interesting, but feel bad because it’s about babies that have died without reason.
I’m really not posting anything other than runs and uni work at the moment, and I know it’s not as varied as usual, but I did warn you all, third year is a bitch.
Don’t go to uni kids, it strips you of your social life, but hopefully I’ll be richer for it when I get a job!

I’m just going to leave this, make of it what you will, but my laugh is like a dying donkey, hardly attractive but I can’t change my vocal chords.
My singing is pretty questionable too.
This is not a drill, I repeat not a drill, I have bugs.
Thank god, its only taken the best part of an academic year…..
I have nothing interesting going on lately, just running and rugby. I shan’t bore you with the details but I’ve hardly eaten today and I was freakin’ starving on that run. Either way, 2.21miles, interval run, half a mile warm up/down included.
I had a mock interview today and it went really well, I got a first for it, so I’m happy with that and I think if I got one I’d stand a decent chance. I also went to see the career’s lady (I love her she’s fabulous is Sue) and she said my personal statement was near perfect so all is well there too.
3 exams, 2 essays, and a dissertation to go.
25th February 2014
Today is a complete write off.
I’ve spent 4 hours staring at a screen trying to write a personal statement which makes me sound as bland as a bowl of pasta, and I’m tired.
Next door had a party last night and I woke up feeling like I was about to hurl my innards out, I think I may have fought a bug in my sleep, when I eventually got some.
So I’m sat there eating my dinner when i come to the realisation that England started playing over an hour ago, so I’ve watched the last half an hour, because in my panic I saw the score and ruined the first half.
Mike Brown, once again I have been banging on about this boy since the dawn of time, he’s a keeper.
Well done Mr. Care, nicely done.
Ireland from what I saw your defence was a wee bit patchy.
SCOTLAND WON HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
WELL DONE SCOTLAND FOUR FOR YOU.
Parkrunners went on tour this morning, pretty much all of a Stewart’s Park went to the Redcar Run, and it was lovely.
So top of the photo in the bright blue on the left is Margaret, who you probably know, she seems to know everyone! bottom left is myself and Ashley and the others I got introduced to but I’ll be damned if I know their names!
Good run, did it in 31”28’ which for me is good, and apparently the course is 30 seconds slower with the sharp turns (talk about pace buster)
I enjoyed my run :)
22nd February 2014
Well Children here we go again.
Hopefully Wales have changed their tactics, what works for every game of the year has to end at some point and that was last weekend.
I’ve also written up two lectures, 40 flashcards, cleaned (I know, I know) and spent half an hour shouting at the Canadians in the Curling, it’s been a long day and I may go off tangent A LOT.
