I'm feeling the need to write an entry just because I'm feeling so damn smug at the moment. Yes I have quit smoking and it was EASY because I am brilliant at everything. Ok, it wasn't easy but I made it look easy. And I can now cycle like a bitch, I'm cycling everywhere, I'm cycling so much my bum is sore. I'm not even disheartened that my bike is shite anymore. In fact I have grown to love it and not feel envious of my sisters Spiritualized beast (honestly).
I have also got a job because I'm so brilliant. Job is pretty rubbish but I dont care anymore because I am brilliant and I can't work in the chiropody clinic any more with miserable old ilkeston people and their miserable old disgusting feet.
Hoorah.
I'm so brilliant.

Today I am:

1. Feeling smug about the nifty manoevering I did in the volvo even with the onlooking bouncers staring and checking I didn't hit their car.
2. Excited for no reason. There's something in the air, something good. I can tell.
3. Feeling smug about my christmas tree. It looked so small in the field and yet so fucking huge when it was dug up and put in our living room.
4. Not so excited that Liam talked me into going to see the Juliana Theory.

I do feel I may be starting to get an alcohol dependancy. I don't know if I'm excited or not about this.

And on Thursday I am going to Edinburgh. I'm so excited about this I'm almost weeing my pants.

Had a fantastic night last night. Drank a ridiculous amount and god knows how much I spent. Ah fuck it.

Up at 8am to go collect a motorhome and drive volvos up the A38, off the A38, back on the A38, off the A fucking 38 andddd....back on the A38. Either my mum was lost or she has a fetish for roundabouts and slip roads.

I don't know what it is about the Flints. It seems a life is not complete until we have all hit rock shitting bottom. I have faith though. If Gareth can get his arse into gear and do so well then theres surely hope for me yet.

All is not well in the land of the flints at the moment.

I'm not convinced I wasn't meant to be born in another country. I'm sure Scunthorpe was a tragic mistake. I shall never forgive the fuckers.

I've had another Jonah day today. I thought it wasn't my time for another one just yet but turns out I was wrong.

It took me 5 hours to get from Derby to my friends house in Giltbrook today. 5 fucking hours. Firstly, nobody told me that the bus took nearly a decade to get to Eastwood. I was so travel sick that I couldnt face another bus to get to Ikea...so I decided to walk...Got about 100 metres from where I actually wanted to be but decided that actually I wasn't quite sure I was in the right place. So I took a detour. A 2 hour detour. I've been round the entire perimeter of Eastwood. I hate fucking Eastwood.

During which time a scary lady with faaaar too much make up approached me and asked me if I wanted to model for Avon! HAHAHAHAH She must think I carried the plump, doudy housewife look off well. To be fair to her, she wasn't the one sweating in a thick duffelly jumper because she couldn't be bothered to take it off.

All I have to show for today are some very mucky feet where I walked through a swamp off the A610 near Ikea.

Jesus, I swear to God I'm losing my marbles.

Knobben! I knew it was a sign and it was.....but I interpreted it in the wrong way and now I'm left with nothing but disappointment...again.

*Deep breath*......

Just got back from Holland and its shit and the weather is shit and England is in general...quite shit.

The only bonus being that Dad and Lesley are away in America for the month so I have the house to myself...or so I thought. Except mum has come back too and she seems to have "accidentally" sold her business and have nowhere to live. Oops. So it seems I may not have the house to myself after all.
Except, if Dad and Lesley find out then World War III will commence....
See, its all complicated now.

On a brighter note, I ADORED Holland and all the people. Miss my caravan friends. Am very seriously considering going to live there soon. If I had the money I would go tomorrow and wing it...but sadly without anywhere to live it's not really feasible just yet.

Speaking of money and jobs, I still have no idea whats happening with this job at the Geotechnical Engineers. My uncle (the manager)...yes I was a bit jammy....was supposed to ring me but hasn't. I've tried ringing but no answer and still no reply. So I don't have a clue. Apparently he is just very busy so I'm going to hang on for a bit and see what happens.

That's about it. Theres no food in my house except bakewell tarts.

Long time no journal...again. I would like to pretend that I've just been too busy but that clearly is not the case. I would just like to say that I started the shoes thing in Obsessions Liam. Get your facts right.
Haha. It was a good night though.
All this time and I have absolutely nothing to say now.
Can't be arsed actually.

5 exams down and just 3 to go. So far some have gone ok, one went extremely badly and on one I answered an entire question on the wrong thing! haha..twat. Although to be fair I didn't know the answer anyway so I haven't lost any marks as such. The new format is terrible, requiring you to know the entire course! what the..? Since when has that been a necessity at university?
Yet another money crisis has meant I'm heading back to Stanley Common to work in my beloved warehouse, probably starting on Sunday. No rest for the wicked sadly. This means I can get some money together for me and Liam to do some fun road trips later in June. Otherwise I will be eating crumbs out the carpet for the next month.
Anyway, least I have some work lined up for summer until I find something better. Money = brum brum! hoorah!

'Does it say nooo smoking?'

Apparently it does.

'DISTRACTING BEHAVIOUR- Candidates may not smoke during an examination' Good job I read that before I went in the exam. Idiots.

First exam tomorrow! Why do I find exams exciting as well as being a complete pain in the arse?
