Students

I gotta say, I'm a little shaken up by the Virginia shooting. I think it might be because it was students, students just like me and most of my friends. I hold students in extremely high regard because, yes, I am an intellectual snob. Students are the future of Britain. Lets face it, no one without a degree could ever become a lawyer, or a doctor, or Prime Minister. The people at University will eventually be the most valued people in the country.

I guess this might be why the shooting has shocked me. Because maybe I thought students were invincible. Or maybe I just can never understand why a student would kill other students.

But I think it's a good thing that I can't understand that.

But still... the thought of all that potential just gone. And all those students (and Teachers, of course)... it sucks. It really does.

The Anfield Tour


On Friday I went on the Anfield Tour which was a present from my Mum to my Aunt (AJ) for her birthday. It was awesome, although I'd already done it before a few years ago. Bit disappointing that they wouldn't let us see the shower room like they did last time. BUT it was enough being in the same room as Jon Arne Riise's naked body has been.


*Sigh*

Easter

Was boring.

I honestly think it might be time for me to go back to uni. It was nice seeing my brother and eating a slap up Easter Sunday Roast. Ate some chocolate and watched most of the Strawberry Panic Anime (which is really sad right now, but I'm hoping it's gonna have a happy ending). Worked Good Friday and Easter Saturday and I'm working tomorrow.

And my Pops has broken his fifth metatarsal.

Other than that. Dull. But the weather has been AWE-some.

Secrets

People generally think they know me well. And they might. Vic knows me the best, I think. Or Toni. But I have kept a secret for seven years. It isn't anything groundbreaking, like I was abused or anything. But it's significant at least.

Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever tell anyone. Or at least anyone important to me. Maybe I'll take it to my grave.

I came close to telling someone once. But then I realised if I told them it wouldn't do anyone any good. So I didn't.


That being said, I don't think you should keep things bottled up.

Hyuu!~

Being English can, at times, really suck. In suburban England (where I live) people have very simple pleasures. Lets face it, most people work 9-5 jobs and just wanna come home and sit in front of the telly (TV, for all you Americans).



English people like:
- Telly
- Various foods (chinese, indian, fish and chips etc.)
- Getting drunk in the pub (American translation: a bar)
- Football (American Translation: Soccer)
- X Factor
- Gossip about "celebrity" nobodies
- Complaining
- Shopping
- Sunbeds
- Bad music
- Good music too

I like:

- Good music
- Festivals
- Ben and Jerry's
- Good films
- Jackass
- Romance
- YA Books
- Nintendo Games
- Writing
- Legend of Zelda
- Fire Emblem
And, it now seems,
- ANIME!

Why is this a problem? Well, I'm not saying no one in England likes Anime. I mean, we have conventions over here and HMV has a DVD section for Anime. But... Anime is just too... well something for English. It's never really took off over here. Probably because our young generation are mainly moronic.
The thing is I'm finding all these different Anime series' that are awesome and then finding that it's just impossible to get hold of them without downloading for weeks (as I am currently doing with Tokyo Mew Mew, hehe) or scouring Ebay. And can I find the first series of Tsubasa Chronicle ANYWHERE?! Not even on my faithful YouTube.
I love Anime.
Almost as much as I now love Fye D. Flowright (that's my fave romanticism of his original name).
