THESE SHOES WERE MADE FOR WALKING...


No they were not. -_-  The Wicked Witch of The West made these shoes! When I first saw them, I fell in love; firstly because of its metallic gold-gray colour (not really clear in the photo), and secondly because they were on MASSIVE sale!! I tried them on and they felt alright....Little did I know that these shoes had other plans for me...
It’s not even the length of the heels that was a problem to me-I have shoes with much longer heels....these shoes tend to TIGHTEN at the front as you walk-I was thinking my feet had grown bigger overnight, till my friend, who is two shoe sizes smaller than me wore them. We didn’t even get to the bus stop and she took them off and walked back to the house barefoot to get other shoes....I made the mistake of making a 2-hour journey in these shoes and I think that has been one of my biggest regrets this year....I got back home with toes as red as Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer ...at least, that night, I discovered that I have a high threshold for pain...I don’t even know if that’s a good thing...lol.
Anyway....The past 2 weeks have been sort of a roller-coaster ride for me...A lot of things seemed to be going wrong...and they were happening in succession! Argh!! I am a Christian though, so I prayed about it, talked to my mum (who is such a fabulous person) and tried to smile through it all...and on Friday, things started getting better! *whew!*  I know these sort of things happen to everyone....we all go through some things that make you just want to give up; but right before I started university, I learnt that life is not a bunch of roses; however it is also not always a dull cloudy day-the sun will definitely break through the clouds.....The UK weather is a perfect illustration of this..hehehe
Last week was reading week...this is when we have very few or no lectures at all and use the time to catch up on work and try to understand topics we didn’t understand. We combined students and the first year LLBs had coursework as well...that was our first assessment for this term....duh-dummm....
I worked really hard on this coursework; but I’m not really sure if the work I presented was good enough; but then again I’m never 100% sure of any work I submit till I get the results..lol...Well, I hope I do really well in it, even though it only accounts for 10% of the total mark for the year-every little helps! I will let you know how I fared when I get it back....
October has gone by really quickly.....just one more day and then it’s November!!! One more day to my No Meat Challenge! One more day to extra cold conditions!! “yay”< --- A very sarcastic one....Oooh apparently,  its already snowing in 49 of the 50 states in USA (funky Florida is yet to be hit)...I hope it doesn’t snow here till Christmas day...lool...fingers crossed... :s
Happy Halloween guys! Happy Birthday to my friend Lale and Wishing all the Best to my best (and only) Clearing supervisor, Axel, who is leaving to Mauritius!!
...and until the next post, its bye for now.xoxo

My lost Blackberry...

Hi people!
I felt so lost last week....and it was because Blackberry wasn’t working for about 3 days...it was terrible! During those three days, I realised how much I depend on technology and how useless I felt without it-even if it was one small aspect. This is not a good thing...I’ve said it once before and I’m, going to say it again; technology has destroyed human relations. Back in the day, we would go visit friends, have sleepovers and all that; now, it is all about pings and skype, twitter and facebook. Lol...
                                                      
Anyway, it is back so I feel much more connected to the world. Hehe...So I went to Birmingham for the birthday weekend (as I said I would in my previous post) and it was one memorable weekend! On Friday night, we went out clubbing and it was hilarious...we couldn’t get into the club we wanted to go into because some of the guys had on hoodies instead of proper jackets; and so we ended up in one less populated club. It wasn’t too bad-we made it fun for ourselves...and then we had some late night McDonalds...argued over who should get the big bed.....and ended up not sleeping at all till the sun came out..hehehe.....We had the house party on Saturday. My close friends were there...there was a lot of chicken, cake and drinks...and more chicken...yumm...and I met a lot of new people; some of them, really funny, and others, just....interesting...
It was a great weekend anyway, and then it was back to London and back to assignments on Sunday morning...phrrrrrr
The past week has been a blur; really...it has just been uni and work and nothing too interesting has happened. It is getting colder and I am just dreading the coming winter (talking about winter, the weather reports said it was going to snow this October....what happened? Hehehhehe). It is already difficult as it is to get out of bed for lectures in the morning...how much more with temperatures in single digits? *can’t watch!* I need some serious motivation in the next few months....
As usual, I have some work to finish off and so I have to leave you here...there are more weekends coming up that I will be spending out of London and I’m going to tell you all about my experiences in these new places. Also, I have been thinking about staying away from meat for a month (no health reasons or anything sensible like that-I just want to see how much I can control myself), starting next month...I’m still thinking about it because as unbelievable as it may seem, that will be a real challenge for me....but we’ll see...
Until then, its au revoir!

I MADE IT!

Of course, I had to make it to second year! I put in so much effort last year...it is such a relief that my efforts paid off. ...so I have been in my second year for almost two weeks now and I am already loving it. I know it comes with more work; and I will need to put in even more effort this year, since this year counts towards my final degree; but I like the challenge and the fact that I no longer have to sit at home, watching paint dry (yes; my summer was quite boring).
Anyway, in these two weeks, I have already been bombarded with cases to read and use in assignments and debates and sometimes, between lectures, my friends and I feel so numb that we think we are going to fall asleep right in the middle of one of the walkways.
It is not all work and tiredness (a little bit of laziness too-I am still trying to come out of the holiday mood. Lool) though, in between lectures, my friends and I go and hang out at a restaurant or the student centre, play snooker (I’m yet to learn that) and have a nice, hot heavy meal and drinks. It’s pretty relaxing. Oh!  And did I mention that I got a job with the university!! Whoooohooooo!!!!
Hahaha! So I have work on Friday and then I’m off to Birmingham for the weekend for birthday celebrations of one of my close friends.  Its been a pretty good two weeks so far and I hope it stays that way. Well, I’m off to add some final touches to a two-minute debate I have been preparing for  and so its bye for now!
