Today: A Day in the Life….

18 Feb

I have recently been filming a UCAS ‘Day in the Life’ video as a student here at Cardiff University….

Although I sound like a 12 year old girl and look hungover in pretty much all of the frames, the comedy music makes it sound like an awesome time!

There was so much more i could have said, but i guess i’ll have to wait for my Oscar performance another time!

The video is here on one of my Professors blog’s, and on you-tube so have fun watching!


Today: Charlie

12 Feb

As per the request of the aforementioned ‘Charlie’, I am going to write (show off and brag) about the new toy-boy in my life. Conveniently named Charlie.

Where to start?

The beginning i think.

Why am i writing about this?

Well, since my blog is called ‘I did that’, he found the thought highly amusing to just put ‘Charlie’. shocking. It is also the far too commercialized day of love on Monday – Valentines day.  A good time to introduce this current sweet heart of mine.

The good stuff

Charlie decided to pop into my life after a rather unfortunate day at uni, I may have blogged on here (but i don’t really remember) about a comment i heard from my supervisor about me not being organised enough for my project, blah blah blah. In a step of desperation i decided to get so drunk i could forget that day ever happened. So me and my friend Nat decided that we would get very. very. drunk. No shame was to be felt as we would most certainly do something stupid that night.

After our spell at the pub we decided to run to Cardiff Student Union, a tradition which has led to numerous grazes and bruised feet over the past year, At the union we did continue in our quest for drunken bliss. Which i happily reached somewhere about the Jaegerbomb number 2 mark (after the vodka’s, the shots, the pints….. ow).

Next thing i remember?

Waking up…..

*insert generic roll over thinking ‘o balls’ remark*

Charlie is a good friend of Nat’s, so we both rang her to find out what happened – nobody really knows…..

Moving on we brushed the week aside till we got to the Sexy santa party that happened the next week. Which resulted in (a less drunk version) of the week before….

Being that it was near Christmas, i figured i could ignore this entire situation and everything would fizzle out by January and nobody would be worse for wear.

Boy i was wrong.

Follow up texts, drunken christmas eve phone calls, New years conversations and an irritating feeling that i actually wished to see this guy again led to an early return to Cardiff. Charlie did the same and we decided to meet up.

Have seen each other everyday since. 🙂

And considering i got sprung by his parents today (no warning there…. i looked a STATE) I’m still pretty attached i think!

I’m also sat next to 12 beautiful Yellow roses which got delivered on friday

12 of the most beautiful roses ever

(for Valentines day…. better early than late!) so i think i’ll keep this toyboy going for a while yet.


He seems like a keeper 🙂
