Hoo-fucking-rah (or not)

My degree looks hard/boring/pointless. I just get the feeling that I am not going to enjoy it, or even give a shit if I pass or fail my first year. The only interesting part comes in the second year when I actually get to choose any modules that I like. So really the only reason I am going to University is for the third year abroad where I get to return to Central America.

Now.

I had an idea to drop out of University if I don't enjoy it and head back to Honduras and teach in that school for about six months to decide if primary school teaching is really what I love doing.

Nobody even NEEDS to tell me that it is a stupid fucking plan because I already acknowledge it. I just want a way out, or an excuse to let me out of what could be the longest and most expensive waste of my entire life.

I can't be bothered going to Japan tomorrow. I've just got settled back into a routine in England, and now it's like...argh, three more weeks of faffing around abroad. I'd rather change my flight quickly, head back to Honduras, and be like "SURPRISE! I'M BACK ALREADY!" since it'll still be the same until like November and it'll be really really cool.

I'm probably going to love it and spend lots of money on silly little things I don't need - but c'est la vie.

See you in three weeks.

Do you guys remember Abel?

Abel
Abel


On my last day at the orphanage in Dominican Republic, it was his too. Really sad that even if I return, I'd never get to see him again. But now I get amazing news by email from one of the older children. They've traced some of his family (!!) and he's now living with a family!

How amazing is that? I know I wanted to keep him and mother him forever, but it's the world's best feeling knowing that he can have a "normal" life from now on. I'm just so pleased for him. It's just really great news.

I'm asking the orphanage for his address now so I can write him a letter and say hello, and generally keep in contact with him. I'd absolutely love to be able to go back and visit him. I want to know [b]everything[/b] about his new life, his home, his family.

And another one of my favourites is living with her family too. How amazing is today? Fuck the World Cup - Abel has a home! I am really grateful for Jose Luis emailling back and filling me on all the information. Hope to keep in contact with him too since he was really friendly and cheerful.

I'm in a good mood today, except minor issues with Portuguese people.

Ahaha.I'm so easily amused. I got the Mr T wacky wobbler (as seen on Max & Paddy's Road to Nowhere) for my car and it's great. I just giggle looking at his head shake. I can't wait until he faces the behemoth of my driving.

Went into l'ecole today to cadge the notes of Smeaton for University. Saw little Ed, who myself and Adnan taught the ways of North house. I'm going back tomorrow for Vis Day, mainly so I can get a proper chat with some of the little ones. It's quite sad really, but they are more impressed by my travelling than the teachers are.

Especially little Connor and Kunal, they're great. I feel a bit guilty because they came up to me and spoke to me, and it took a while to recognise them. Okay, the sun distorted my view, but it's still mean.

Come too people - floreat bancroftia.

I had the most boring dream last night and I feel the need to tell you. I was making peanut butter sandwiches, I was making three whole ones all for myself. Then I went to get a glass of pineapple juice from the fridge. You know, 100% freshly squeezed. I then woke up looking for my big glass of pineapple juice.

And that was it. I, quite possibly, am turning into the most boring person in the whole entire world.

On the plus side, I'm winning money on the World Cup betting side, but will probably lose it later on down the line which is a bit sad. And I'm going to Japan in a month, for three weeks,so there's something to look forward to in the impending months.

My room is a tip, and I'm 19.

I'm back in England, and it's officially pants. The weather is rubbish. There was a motorway crash meaning I had to hold in a wee for about thirty more minutes than necessary. My room is messy. Some shampoo exploded in my bag meaning my towel is dandruff-free for the next good few months.

I spent my last night in Fiji charging several cocktails 'to the room', including the very masculine 'Fijian Warrior.' Us very mature people found it very entertaining to ask each other to have a fijian warrior in their mouth.

I want to dispense my gifts pronto, might pop into school tomorrow if I can be bothered. Need to see Aysha to pop off her ciggies, and need to see Josh to give his as-of-yet-can't-be-revealed gift.

And I'm fucking broke. There's like a pound in my bank account, there's about five pounds fourty in my room, so I'm having to dip into my savings account and then...*gulp* get a job. This is what I'm fucking being reduced to, getting a job. I wouldn't mind working in a newsagent though, since during the off-peak hours, I could get to flick through HEAT magazine and other very manly magazines.

Johnathan Cainer is really good at horoscopes. If it is a load of bullshit, he's seemingly made his last three (that I've read) very appropriate. The one yesterday was all "You should just take the next week to chill out, and dwell on all of the things you've learnt over the past 12 months." And today's was about money, when this guy is paying me to upload things to his eBay account, and Johnathan Cainer said doing this was a good decision but I shouldn't ask for too much money.

There's an Afghan restaurant that I need to check out tomorrow. What even is Afghan food? Also, I'm going to go to this restaurant next to it to eat kangaroo, emu and other assorted lovelies.

It feels really wierd that I'll be home soon. In my bed, in my room, in my house. Internet will be free, food will be provided, laundry will just happen without me noticing it. I have nothing to worry about when I get home.

[u]6 weird things about me...[/u]

1) After I saw Home Alone, I took a cardboard box from Waitrose, and attempted to copy the scene where he goes down the stairs and out the front door, but I smacked my head of a bannister and ended up in hospital.

2) I got scared during my PADI course, since I kept getting freaked out about drowning.

3) I own two 5ive albums, and regularly listen to them. I also know most of the lyrics to 911 songs.

4) I tried dying my hair brown, once.

5) I didn't start walking till I was like three. My mum was scared she was going to have to take me to nursery in my pram, since I was always "WARRGH WARRGAH PRAM!!!"

6) When I went to Disneyland as a baby, I cried when I saw Mickey Mouse. And wouldn't stop crying in the photos.
