My proud collection! All of these are cheapo earrings, but the cheaper and tackier the better in my eyes! If its cheap, I can buy more! I think the most expensive are the shell pair which were like £11, I did haggle, and this was the best deal but this is only because they are vintage! I am pretty sure I have more, but those have rusted or changed colour so they are not blog worthy! Quick fake gold trip: To maintain the golden colour, coat then in a clear nail polish before you wear them, double coat if needed especially if you use products in your hair which can transfer to the earrings and cause it to change colour!
I know I keep moaning about university and what-not but I need it out of my system! I have one month, yes ONE MONTH, to complete 7 pieces of work including my dissertation. Bar the dissertation, each piece is an average of 3000 words! ARGGGgggg! And to make matters worse, one of my lecturers (...who has deserted us in the last few vital weeks and run off to write a book...) just emailed me some feedback for an earlier piece, in which he said it was "OK, but not brilliant". Thanks for that Sir, telling me know when I can't do nothing about it, making me feel depressed about the outcome of my final year in University. I emailed him, saying that his work is hardly the easiest in the course (he has given us the most work...), and he replies, I quote, "No-one said the module was going to be easy...and really, if you think Uni is hard...well, what can I say....? You're bright and with application you could do very well. Let's not talk about your ability to concentrate in seminars, eh..." !!! WHAT! What does that mean, bright with application?! And a bit harsh no? Take it personal why don't you! So I admit I don't participate in class, and I won't deny the fact that I strain to stay awake, but that was not really necessary in an email was it? I am not a confident speaker hence why I do not participate in the seminars, plus we have a few loud mouths who like to say everything, so why should I contribute if I have nothing new to add?! I have always said I express myself better through the way I write; in person...well I am a bit of a dweeb, I jumble and always mispronounce words, basically I am pretty shitty at selling myself in person. BLAH! I am basically going to be under house arrest until I finish all this work, which is a damn shame because the WEATHER IS LOOKING GOOODD! I am pretty much spoiling my panties at the moment, I really want to get a good BA Honors...this £9000+ I have borrowed to pay for it has to be worth something!!
Whilst we are on the subject of money: the credit crunch. I was a bit perplexed by the whole situation, too many people telling me too much making me all confused as to what the hell it was. M.I.S.S. recently posted these animated videos called "The Crisis of Credit" by Jonathan Jarvis which is basically a dummies guide to how it all started. It really helped me understand (!!), and its fun to watch, read the M.I.S.S post here, and check out the videos:
*Apologies* about the older posts with the lack of pictures due to Photobucket and their minimal bandwidth allowance! As soon as I have time, I will replace ALL lost photos!! Don't let that deter you from reading this blog :-D
Also my girl; fellow M.I.S.S intern, Isis wrote some sweet words about me on her tumblr blog!! Check out her blog! She is seriously the sweetest chick ever and we are both obessed with Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes...oh and did I mention that BOTH of our boyfriends look like him!?! Of course, the look-a-like factor has nothing to do with why we are with them...! She loves Travis so much she has a Tumblr blog just like he has, which means we can't show love through comments on her blog!
