A week in the life

Oh, I do love a Sunday.

This one feels like it has come around so fast; I feel like it was only a few minutes ago I was sat on that train writing last week’s post. I had a great day with my friends in London and didn’t want to come home. This week’s not been too shabby though:

I spent another two days volunteering and loved it.

I’ve been to the library to pick up some reading for a previously mentioned masters course. I’m hoping doing more reading will help me make a more educated decision about¬†whether ¬†or not said potential career path is really for me.

I also sat down at the piano and didn’t sing: I pushed the microphone to one side and had a muck about to see if I could remember my Grade 5 pieces. Reckon I’ll need to do a few more grades if I’m going to apply to any further music courses. Would be fun to have lessons again. I think if I promise to practice more than I did in high school, my old teacher might just have me back. We’ll see.

I’ve been making an effort to read more since blogging about why the rest of the world should.

I backed out of my fitness class, but did go swimming, so that’s something.

I went on a ‘banging’ night out with some friends and I’m feelin’ 22 again. (I’ve been a bit of an old lady recently. Bed’s been my best friend.)

Dave came home. He’s been working away, so I haven’t seen him in a little while. It was very good to have him back, even if briefly.

I spent a day helping out in a junior school! I enjoyed my time there, everyone was lovely, I appreciated the insight into mainstream education and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that maybe they’ll have me back again some day soon.

Full steam ahead really. Nothing else to report, just another week in my life.

Romantic Comedies – The Pros and Cons

PRO – They never fail to make you laugh.

Even if you’re not the laughing type, you’ll find yourself chuckling when that character, who you can’t help relating to in some small way, does the same stupid thing you also did once upon a time. Laughing literally releases happy hormones, definite plus.

CON – The cringe factor.

We’ve all sat in front of the big screen squealing and blushing on behalf of a character who has embarrassed themselves. When Bridget Jones embarrasses herself we giggle and sigh lovingly, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes it is just simply painful to watch as a character takes things to a whole new level. It’s a thin line, easily crossed.
