So hello all,

Just thought I would pop in to say... howdy... My keyboard is a gimboid so please allow for numerous spelling mistakes.

How is everyone?

Below is an update, of my life over the past week or so.

I'm still off work, still not feeling 100%; chest is still bad, still coughing, not sleeping - which of course is amazing... Not.


I went down to Southampton for an open day at uni on Thursday. It was amazing, if I wasn't excited before - which I was - I most definitely am now.

We got loads of information, about the course and stuff. There is a Facebook group which I have joined which is especially for the nursing students of 2012 starting at soton uni :D

We started the day off with an introduction from some of the tutors, and it’s good to put names to faces and see who it is that will be teaching us.

Then we had a lecture from the director of programmes, she was FASCINATING. She talked about the changes a woman's body undergoes just before giving birth, which of course I knew from college but still I was amazed.

We were then given the chance to ask some students already on the course, and some that had just graduated some questions, and because I didn’t have a pen and paper at the point I have to take notes on my phone, which made me feel terrible like I wasn’t listening.

After that we had a little break, and then went back in. We had the most interesting lecture ever, which was an interactive learning session, were us, as the audience got to direct how a scene played out. I am so interested in this become part of my every week learning!

We then had our lunch and a session aptly named simman took place. This is - as it sounds - all about simulations. We sat down and watched as current nursing students treated a patient named Sam. He of course wasn't real but he was basically a dummy. It is strange calling him that as he's so sophisticated, and genuinely a state of the art piece of equipment.

After that we split into smaller groups and really got to know each other, we had to do a task called daily mail, where we picked out a headline and had to analyse it and document why we felt the way we did about it and so on.

All in all, it was a fantastic day. I met some amazing people, whom I simply cannot wait to meet again.


So not much has been happening at home lately, Bella has been ill over the past few days, and she is so sleepy, which is sad, but I’m sure she will be okay.


Just started to read that 50 Shades of Grey, and my my it isn’t what I expected at all. People talk about it all the time so I wanted to read it so I could say, well actually no it’s terrible, but it really isn’t.

If you don’t want to know what happens do not read what’s below in green:

It is basically about a young woman, who does an interview with a billionaire and falls madly in love with him, the 3 books are all about the challenges that their relationship faces. Of course as most people will know the book is based strongly around Christian Grey’s obsession with BDSM (BD (Bondage & Discipline), DS (Dominance & Submission), and SM (Sadism & Masochism). Now when people described the book to me, I thought it was all going to be about this, and be filthy, now it does have its moments but of course, most relationships are about sex. It is nowhere near as detailed and rude as I expected it to be, which makes the fast that my mother is reading it a lot easier. The book isn’t about sex, it’s about love, and the sacrifices people will make for those who they love. And it’s a really nice series of books to read. A friend commented yesterday and said that I’d funnier since I’ve read it. And him himself has read it and said it gave him an insight on how women feel, and Anastasia is just a normal woman when she meets him.

 I think the book needs to be given a chance by people, men and women so that they can judge it on how it is written not, what it touches on ever so lightly. Personally I think a high five should go to the author. So E. L. James any chance of getting this arranged?


As you may know, my best friend graduated last week, I’m so insanely proud of her, she has come so far, and to think she has changed and grown so much from the girl I used to know in school, she’s grown into a fantastic powerful, strong and inspiring young lady, and I really think that if anyone is capable of world domination it’s her. I love this girl with all my heart, and I no longer just see her as my friend, she’s like a sister to me, and I know that no matter what I need she will always be there. Danielle, I’m proud of you, I know I’ve said it a million times but it is true, you are an inspiration, never forget that. – I’m likely to get punched for writing that, but I don’t care. This is my blog, and somewhere I can come to rant and rave and be passionate about people and things that matter to me. And yes D you are one of them people who matters.

I finished college a few weeks ago and went on Friday to pick up my results, which I am very very happy with, so I decided to reward myself, I’ve bought myself, THE most fabulous Pauls Boutique bag – picture below. I purposely picked it out that that it is big enough to hold all of my uni stuff when I’m heading in for a lecture.

There isn’t anything else I can really write about, please feel free to follow me on twitter if you aren’t already, and to of course comment on here if there is anything you would like
to see me write about.

This makes me laugh --->

For now,

Peace out.

Life update

Well hello all!
    How is everyone?
I just wanted to pop in to give everyone a update.

So on friday, I graduated from my course at college! This is a major thing for me, I never thought I would have made it, but I have. I still need to go and get my official results, but I know I have at least passed :D.

After I came home from the graduation, I got an email off the NHS bursaries department to tell me tha I can now apply for my NHS bursary :D, this is a major thing, it basically means that the university have accepted me, and I now need to make he application for my tuition fee's to be paid :D.

I know that no one will care about this, but its major to me.
So I just wanted to give you all an update :D

Wowza! Long time!

Well, hello all.

It has apparently been more than a year since I last blogged? How has it been so long?
I don't exactly know where I am going with this one. Maybe chat on about life in general.

The last time I blogged I was in a bad place, I was down a lot and stuff. Since then, I've started college, made some amazing friends who I don't think I could live without. I'm gonna' dedicate a little section to them and go from there.

To the people who have helped me morph into who I am now, thank you. Without the constant support and the numerous drinks you have supplied me with, I don't know where i would be today. All the laughs we have had have honestly made me so much stronger and helped be get over all the things that where keeping me down, so just a little dedication to you guys.

Thank you!
(To Ray, Claire, Mary, Danielle, Ellie, Rachael, Liam)

Since starting college, I have only really thought about one thing, that's following my dream and going to university. Recently I've been accepted by the amazing University of Southampton, and i am so excited to go there.
Its a beautiful city that totally embodies everything I need around me. The beautiful sea front, and the docks where I can see all the nice big ships coming and going.
The amazing country side (which I know is there I just haven't had chance to find). The perfect city life, including all the shops a girl needs and that amazing nightlife. Southampton has one downfall, and that is that my family and my closest friends cannot come with me, I am looking forward to a nice fresh start and to making new friends and meeting new people, but I will miss what I have here at home. It is only 3 years though, if I miss home that much I can come home at the end of those years.
I've talked about the uni, but not the course. I will be training to be a nurse, those of you who are reading this and know me will know how this profession fits everything I've ever wanted in life. Recently through work I've realised that not a lot will drive me to do well, money doesn't anyway. What does make me happy, and what does drive me is helping people, not in any way what so ever, in all ways.
Those of you know don't know me, probably won't care either way, but thank you anyway for reading about my boring life :).

Like I said I don't know where I was going with this one, its really just to catch up with how things are in my life... pretty awesome if you ask me.

As always I need to say that my friends and my family are my life, I've gotten through so much thanks to them and them alone. So thank you all for that.

I will write again soon. VERY soon!

EmzieChar  - Oh yes, I've got a new nickname now, this is what I will refer to myself as at the end of my posts.
