So as usual it's been ages since I've posted anything. That's just how I roll. I'll try and get into the habit of posting more often, but yeahhh, just doesn't seem to happen like that.
Stuff has been happening. First of all, upon realising that I had no money (well, there's about £2.50 in my bank account) I decided to get a job selling electronics in Comet. Does't pay 'til the 23rd, but I suppose I'll be able to get some last minute Christmas shopping in at least. It's going to be EFFORT getting by 'til then though, I'm probably going to end up in massive debt :/
Term is now over at BIMM! Huzzah, free time is mine. On Thursday I had to hand in an assignment - the only one set this term. I had thought it was just a 1000 word essay (it's not uncommon for some degrees to be RIDICULOUSLY weighted on the last term, with practically nothing in the first), but when I looked at the actual brief (not so long before it had to be handed in) it was in 6 parts. It said 'Parts 1-5 not included in word count'. So that was annoying. Ended up doing a big all nighter the night before it was due in just to get it all done. While hardly enjoyable, it was much less tiring than I was expecting and I was actually totally fine the next day, and got everything handed in on time. BOOM.
After that I went to rehearsal and was bizarrely energetic. I was jumping around the room like a madman and doing squats and stuff. Eva sung to the songs she'd written lyrics to, and she does sound good. Very shouty, very loud, very powerful. I look forward to gigging with her on Wednesday.
And then I went to a party at Anyas. I think it might've been Ben's birthday party, it was hard to tell. Basically I did what I always do, making several quintuple (or more) vodkas in a row and drinking them very fast. At this point I realised that my body hadn't handled the all-nighter (and lack of dinner that day) as well as I thought it did. I then tried to down a very large bottle of very very old cider (it was practically vinegar). I then had to go and be sick quite a lot. I was not handling my drink very well at all. Anya was very nice and looked after me while I puked excessively and fell about the room rambling. The next day she made me breakfast and lunch and bought me a bottle of lucozade, as well as ringing my band to tell them I was too ill to come to rehearsal and missing a lunch appointment she had planned. VERY VERY SORRY ANYA THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH. Also sorry to the others at the party who had to witness my stupid drunkness and vomiting.
And tonight I played the end of term gigs at BIMM. The end of term gigs are notorious for being about 80% covers with the little original material on being incredibly contrived and commercial. Well, there are one or two creative originals on, but y'know. They also never put on instrumentals. I played the most insane, anti-BIMM instrumental piece ever and they loved it, gave it full marks and put it on the gig. When we played the gig, everyone was clapping and laughing at our 'sneaky conga' (an interesting piece of coreography we put in), and when we got off stage there was much praise. A tutor shook me by the shoulders repetetively saying "I LOVE YOU" and talking about how much his son loved us, and a girl came over and ranted at me about how mcuh she loved it and how she was now a huge fan and wanted to see more of our gigs. On top of that, everyone seemed genuinely pleased to receive flyers for our next gig. This pleases me.
I'm sure there's other stuff, but yeah. I forget stuff when I don't post for ages :/
