Back on track!

day 12 – favourite song from a movie

Hmm. The one that instantly springs to mind is the theme from 28 Days Later, but I don’t know, it’s just the only one I know.

Actually, after thinking on it, yeah I know what one I pick, but I’m saving it for another later day. I don’t want to repeat songs.

Does this count as a movie? It better because both it and the song are awesomeness.

Thinking of quitting die2nite, it’s just taking too much time. Probably not quitting forever, it’s fun time waster and I <3 the IRC room, but just for now. I need to concentrate on college. I did the maths resit and I think I passed it this time, I hope I did! It was in the drama theatre, which was a proper theatre! Got a peek through the door at the previous session and it was funny how dramatically lit it all looked from outside, all shrouded in shadow, but it didn't feel like that once you were in there. I gave up chocolate properly a few weeks ago, it's... A relief, surprisingly, do you realise how much snack-stuff has chocolate in? Practically all of them. Gonna see if I can make it all the way through lent without eating any, just for the hell of it! (That's happening now, right? I love how I saw somebody the other day on some stupid video call it "The lentil season") Easter is gonna be annoying though. I should give up diet coke again too, it fucks up my skin even if I just drink one can a day for a couple of days. (I didn't realise this until the first time I stopped drinking it, the difference was surprising) Anyway, I love that song.

So pretty!

Made the background in Photoshop, it’s not too much, is it? I love it. *_*

Reading through this blog and tagging old posts, one thing I’ve realised is that I really miss the Polyphasic thing. I was happy, more organised and more motivated when I was doing it, I updated this every day (and more) and generally enjoyed the experience. I’d try again in a hearbeat if I didn’t have to stick to such a schedule for college.

Maybe in the holidays I will try it again, I have a better schedule now to base it off, going to bed at midnight and getting up at 7-8am every day instead of what I had before, which was just staying up until I pass out and then getting up at lunchtime. The 25 minute alarm I made for doing it has been invaluable, even just as a snooze button for my morning alarm or for sitting and reading without losing track of time.

 

I need to tidy up the garden but the weather has been rubbish, the chickens aren’t enjoying it. When summer comes I may try and pen them in, just because they’ve totally trashed the garden, but I caught Thorax perching on top of the fence yesterday and he must’ve jumped 5ft to get up there so who knows, he may value his freedom too much.

He’s been getting aggressive, most of the time he just stands up to me if I walk at him, but sometimes if I turn my back he randomly attacks me. When he does I chase him round the garden, or if he’s really gone for me I pick him up and hold him in my arms until he gives in, he’s not gone for me in a while so I think he dislikes that. He attacks Terence a lot more than me though, he won’t even let him in the garden without pecking him. Terence insists “He pecks me because he loves me!!”

The days are getting longer, which is nice, it’s no longer dark when I get home from college. The apple tree we got last year has got buds on, I haven’t checked the pear, just noticed when I was letting the chickens out. Mum saw a bat and the birds are singing in the evenings again. Spring is here, I can’t wait for it to finally be warm again.
