  • Oh, what’s that? A month exactly until I’m flying off to New York? How very exciting! Roll on pay day so I can buy flight necessities and a juicy new book to read on the flight (not Fifty Shades.) Any good book recommendations people want to throw my way then please do so!
  • College is perking up considerably now we’re starting a new module in sociology (education apparently), all I need to do now is get this history exam out of the way and finish my script for English and all will be good. Good in le hood.
  • I’m in a Phantom of the Opera sort of mood.
  • I managed to spill smoothie all over the flooring in the lounge earlier. Had to put Miranda on live pause while my mum cleared it up. Clearly I am very clumsy and should not be trusted with beverages without the lids.
  • I cannot think of a fifth bullet point. Non, je ne regrette rien.

I am currently procrastinating by writing this post as I have a media storyboard to do for my coursework, and storyboards have been the actual and literal bane of my life forever. I was never one for planning, but if it’s going to benefit my coursework, then let’s do it. I have lots of ideas for the video aspect at the moment, more so than for the print element, so every cloud eh.

I tried being healthy today. Oh, I really did. Low fat peanut butter on toast, two light banana yoghurts, two apples, chicken noodle soup, and baked potato with chicken and vegetables, plus an hour doing yoga and God knows what else. Then I got back from my mum’s about an hour ago and I’ve had two chocolate bars and am awaiting some freshly baked bread with raspberry conserve on it. Not so good. I have no willpower, I have found. 

It’s proved to be a challenge milking my very dull weekend (except seeing some friends yesterday!) into an exciting text post, so here is where I leave you be and say ‘au revoir’ - at least, until tomorrow. xo

College is so draining. In unrelated news, people can be little shits. 

But on a happier look on life, I’ve made a relaxing playlist which I can listen to in moments like this, where I can just be entirely blissed out and just be contented! I get to finish college at quarter to twelve tomorrow which is amazing, so my mother’s taking me out for coffee (and maybe lunch?) and then I might do a spot of revision, but then again, maybe not. We had a sociology mock exam today and I was three marks away from full marks, I can possibly justify not doing a lot of studying.

Have put on half a stone since the weekend before Christmas. Chubbed up for Chrimbo, now to slim down for summer. Because that’ll totally happen. Started well, had fresh bread, rocket salad and chicken for dinner.. which I followed up with a cheesecake and some chocolate because why not.

2012 review

Well, this year is indeed coming to a close, and before the flurry of ‘I must lose weight, get fit, learn Latin’ posts which are just waiting to surface on Tumblr in the next twenty-four hours, I thought I would post a list of my personal highlights from 2012. In true Chloe style I can’t remember anything that happened from January to about April, because I was going through a fun fatigue sort of thing that meant I would get home from school at six pm after doing coursework, and sleep until the next day of coursework catch up. That was literately all I did for four of five months straight, so I feel these months don’t require talking about. But the months that followed… I’ll put a ‘read more’ break, as I feel this post could end up being quite long. 

So, Chloe’s year… are you ready?

Highlights of the day include:

  • Waking up dehydrated at 4am and having to down five glasses of water before my heart rate went back to normal. When I did drop back to sleep I did have some really cool dreams, so that was a bonus.
  • Being offered a glass of Cinzano (classy innit) with my mother who gets drunk off tiramisu. 
  • Laying in bed after nine hours at work and feeling finally relaxed. Work is great and rewarding but dealing with customers and refunds all while trying not to drop the iPad can be exhausting. I had chicken and tomato pasta for lunch though, so, you know, every cloud and all that.

That was literately it. Now for evening of dinner, writing, watching ‘Nativity’ (festive!) and trying not to fall asleep. 

Ooh I tell you life is juicy today, I’m finally feeling like life is perking up and improving massively, due to my laptop being fixed on Sunday (thank you Uncle Geoff dearest) and really just being surrounded by a group of amazing people who make my life seem like it’s worth living. For that, I thank you.
In other news my hair is absolutely dead at the moment, it needs washing but it’s too cold for that, it needs cutting but I don’t have the time to spend three hours at a hairdressers at the moment. Over Christmas for definite. So I curled it. I play with my hair far too much so I have quite a few split ends, so I thought until it gets sorted out sometime soon there’s no harm in adding to them a little bit.
Habits I need to work on:
The Snooze Button. I wake up at 4am and press the snooze on my alarm every twenty minutes until 7am when I should be getting out of bed. It’s weird and I don’t know why I do it. I need one of those expensive alarm clocks that wakes you up naturally. Now they are classy.
Thinking up amazing projects and ideas that would really be fun and beneficial to my future and automatically blocking them out of my mind with the thought ‘I can’t be arsed’. 
That’s pretty much the extent of my life at the moment. Hope you are feeling sexy. xo

Me from the other day. I would enclose a photo of myself from the present moment, but right now, I’m wearing a massive men’s fleece and Hello Kitty pyjama shorts, so I feel this would be rather inappropriate for the internet. So, me. From last week. I forget which day. xo

I look bloody shoddy by the end of the day.

Today was nice, a boy bought me a cup of tea and now I’m planning my media coursework. I’ve booked the camera and tripod, all I have to do now is draw out plans for the actual photos, and write the articles. I don’t think it will take me too long. 

I love college at the moment though. Hoorah for teachers that treat students like adults! Little things in life.

I’m all hair and gold lipgloss these days.

I’m all hair and gold lipgloss these days.

This morning. I start off the day looking pretty darn sexy and then gradually get worse as the day goes on. Today was good though, although I’ve only just got back from town. I swear I spend the majority of my life either at college or not in my house. Met Sam Pepper & others. Made a new friend. Had Nando’s. Ah, life. Life, you are exhausting.

Shameless selfies 2k12. It’s half one on a monday afternoon and I’ve been watching Outnumbered all day. However I am considering starting up a YouTube channel with my twin, to answer the many questions people seem to have about twins. ‘Can you read each other’s thoughts?’ ‘Do you feel each other’s pain?’ ‘Are you identical?’ etc etc. Could be fun, non?
Edit: Yes that is a photo of Baby and Johnny in the background, no regrets.
