YOU APPROACH A BLOSSOM TREE




IT IS BRISTLING WTIH MEMORIES...


18 June 2020:

today i cut my bf's hair (it turned out pretty well given it's only my second attempt!). in between refreshing my emails and checking job postings, i've managed to create a cooler diary layout & also fix some coding around my site. i'm currently drinking a nice cup of black coffee n listening to some ambient sounds (rain etc). the air through the window is pretty chilly, which is a nice change from the hot weather we've had here over the past few days.

i also cast my vote in some internal elections for the political party i support (well, a faction within it), & managed to get some payments sent that i'd been putting off. hopefully i'll have some more money soon, plus there's a promotion that's gonna be advertised in august and i've been speaking to the department manager about it. i have quite a lot of knowledge about the sort of work it involves (a lot of it i've done before) so hopefully i should be in with a good chance. it'll mean more hours and better pay!




14 June 2020:

HELLO! NOT SURE IF ANYONE READS THESE BUT REGARDLESS, I'VE BEEN HAVING LOTS OF PROBLEMS WITH MY DOMAIN, SO I'M PROBABLY JUST GOING TO CANCEL IT & CANCEL MY SUPPORTER SUB AT SOME POINT. WHICH IS SAD! BUT I HAVEN'T REALLY GOT THE TIME OR PATIENCE TO BE SORTING IT OUT AND IT JUST MAKES ME WANNA AVOID NEOCITIES/BLOGGING SO AH WELL. ANYWAYS, I'VE GOT A BRAND NEW HOME PAGE & ENTER PAGE, AND I RE-CODED MY LINKS SECTION A BIT TO MAKE IT EASIER TO VIEW/MORE FUNCTIONAL.
LIFE WISE, I'VE JUST BEEN GOING TO WORK A LOT (I WORK IN RETAIL) BC I'M A BIT WORRIED ABOUT HAVING ENOUGH MONEY FOR RENT. HOPEFULLY ONCE I GET SOME REGULAR HOURS SORTED I CAN RELAX A BIT. I'M MOVING HOUSES SOON, TOO! I'M SO EXCITED!! ONCE THAT'S ALL DONE I'LL HAVE A BIT MORE TIME TO DEVOTE TO WRITING, PLAYING VIDEO GAMES, A BIT OF CODING & GETTING MORE INVOLVED WITH WORKERS' UNIONS. THE LATTER IS SOMETHING THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO ME & SOMETHING I'D LIKE TO PUT A LOT OF MY TIME INTO HELPING. OH, AND I FINISHED MY DEGREE FINALLY! OVER AND OUT




27 May 2020:

BLEEEGH MY SITE FEELS SO BORING! BUT I THINK I'M JUST BEING A PERFECTIONIST SO WHATEVER. I'VE NEARLY FINISHED UNI WHICH IS GREAT, I CAN'T WAIT TO BE FREE OF EDUCATION FOREVER (OR AT LEAST THE TIME BEING). IT RLY DOES MAKE A BOI FEEL LIKE SH*T AND BRINGS OUT ALL OF MY WORST MENTAL/EMOTIONAL TRAITS LMAO. BUT ANYWAY YEAH LIFE IS WEIRD AND I JUST MESSED UP A STIR FRY BY OVERWATERING MY JASMINE RICE SO IT TASTES LIKE GROSS PORRIDGE NOW. DAMN




04 April 2020:

MY NINTENDO SWITCH ARRIVED! I'VE FINALLY STARTED NEW HORIZONS. SEE YOU ALL NEVER. I'VE ALSO BEEN SORTING OUT MY WEB PIXELS PAGE & WILL UPLOADING MORE OF MY FAVOURITE PIXELS I'VE COLLECTED OVER THE YEARS - IT'S TAKING FOREVER THOUGH LOL.
CURRENTLY AVOIDING TOO MUCH TWITTER AND OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA BECAUSE THERE'S SO MUCH POLITICS DISCOURSE AND I CBA. ALSO MY DEGREE IS IN POLITICS SO I HAVE TO READ ENOUGH ABOUT IT ALREADY FML




01 April 2020:

TODAY I WOKE UP LATE (AGAIN) AND HAVE SLOWLY BEEN TRYING TO GET SOME UNI WORK DONE. I'M READING ABOUT DISCO/DANCE MUSIC AND HOW IT CAN BE ANALYSED POLITICALLY, AS WELL AS SOME OTHER STUFF MORE GENERALLY ABOUT QUEER THEORY & THE USE OF MUSIC VIDEOS.
MY MENTAL HEALTH HAS BEEN A BIT PATCHY RECENTLY (LOCKDOWN BLUES) BUT I'M TRYING TO JUST GET ON WITH EVERYTHING - I'VE NEARLY FINISHED MY DEGREE AND I'M JUST SUPER EXCITED TO BE FREE. FREE IN THE SENSE THAT I WON'T HAVE ANY DEADLINES. I'LL STILL NEED TO GO TO WORK AND STUFF BUT THAT I CAN DEAL WITH.
I HAVEN'T QUITE GOTTEN AROUND TO UPLOADING ALL OF THE IMAGES HERE TO MY OWN SERVER SO BARE WITH ME IF SOME THINGS AREN'T LOADING ATM. I'LL DO IT SOON I PROMISE LMAO




02 August 2020:

HEY LOL SORRY I GUESS MY SITE WENT AWOL FOR A WHILE?? IT'S COOL THOUGH BECAUSE I'VE HAD NO TIME TO WORK ON IT ANYWAYS.

SO I FINALLY GRADUATED WITH A FIRST! AKA THE HIGHEST GRADE IN A DEGREE IN THE UK, WHICH IS PRETTY SICK. I'M CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB AND REALLY WANT TO GET INTO ONE OF THE LOCAL HOSPITALS SO I CAN EVENTUALLY TRAIN TO BECOME AN EMERGENCY CARE ASSISTANT AND MAYBE A PARAMEDIC. I'VE PRETTY MUCH SHUNNED POLITICAL/POLICY STUFF AT THIS POINT AND I FEEL WAY BETTER FOR IT. CAN'T SAY I FEEL AS GOOD ABOUT THE TEN HOUR SHIFTS I KEEP DOING AT WORK THOUGH.

ALSO, THANKS TO THE PEOPLE WHO LEFT COMMENTS ON MY GUESTBOOK/PROFILE. MEANS A LOT AND THANKS FOR EVERYONE WHO SENT ADVICE ABOUT MY DOMAIN TROUBLES. I GUESS IT WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE, PLUS SUPPORTER IS A BIT EXPENSIVE FOR ME ATM ON A RETAIL WAGE

SIDE NOTE, IF ANYONE'S LOOKING FOR A PODCAST RECOMMENDATION, CHECK OUT 'I WEIGH' WITH JAMEELA JAMIL (TAHANI FROM THE GOOD PLACE!!). SHE TALKS ABOUT SOCIAL JUSTICE STUFF AND INTERVIEWS CELEBRITIES AND THERE'S A LOT OF COOL DISCUSSIONS AROUND MENTAL HEALTH, SOCIAL MEDIA AND IDENTITIES. IT'S ON SPOTIFY AND APPLE MUSIC IF YOU'RE INTERESTED! OVER AND OUT X
