Well done Sheikah, congrats! =)

 

 

Whooo, quite pleased at the moment. Got my grades for a practical module from last semester and I ended up with a 14/20! I was expected to get a 12/20 at first, but I managed to work my way up to a 14. So yayyyy! ^___^

 

Hope I can get the same done on my Master Project, 'cause at this moment I'm predicted a fail haha.

 

Will be going into school today though to talk to my teacher about my project. Since I don't have an author, we decided we're going to tackle the text together (I wrote something/made a dummy book and he's going to edit the text now). =)

Did your heart sink when you read "thanks for coming to the interview and we're sorry..." Mine would've!

 

Anyway, congrats :)

Yeah I did think that actually! Especially since I thought they had no reason to be sorry given the interview was on Thursday, and I got told yesterday, which isn't really long enough to be sorry about. I'll be going for a good meal with people soon!

 

My future supervisor was very happy too, e-mailing me to say congratulations. Yay!

Finally out of hospital, doctors said it was gastroenteritis, basicly a stomach flu, stuck me on a drip and just watched me for a few days. Can only use one hand atm, the place where they put the needle for the drip is making it kind of hard to bend my arm >_> all in all i feel fine...yeay. Also morphine is my new favourite drug of all time ^__^

Pretty fail moment today.

 

Friend and I went to go and give blood today. We stood in line for about an hour, waiting (filling in a medical form in between the waiting as well). Then the talk with the doctor came...

 

We both got denied to give blood. Me because of my leg operation/bone transplantation I received last year, my friend cause she spent a year in Thailand a few years ago. Boooh.

 

And now I'm in school, sitting alone at a huge table while six guys are all cosily huddled together at a smaller table. I feel so neglected and rejected now. =(

 

My first and only experience was a rejection like your own. I waited around for ages only to be told that I couldn't because I'd been to a Malaria infected zone in the past X years.

 

I'm happy to give blood but I'm not going to go there to get rejected again. If they want my blood they can come and ask me for it specifically.

 

It's a shocking service they have in these places; from experiences of my own and others they don't make it easy for people to donate blood at all. The hundreds of thousands of pounds they spend on advertising should be instead spent on making it easier to donate blood.

I can see your logic there, but then if you are in a car crash and seriously weakened anyway, you wouldn't wanna chance it on risky blood. (not to say people that have had homo sex are dangerous or whatever)

 

Giving blood was something i REALLY wanted to do, but I can't, ever. I'm on too many medications. And i've got extremely poor veins (to the point where a tiny vial is tricky to get)

 

You also can't give blood for a time after piercings and tats (6 months for piercings and a year for tats)

 

For some of it obviously I see the reasoning behind it, but were talking about gay sex and been screened coming back negative and not being able to give perfectly acceptable blood because people worry so much about it all.

 

Its a subject that baffles me :P

 

Last night was abit poo, I was supposed to go out, had a lovely dress, nice friends and it just ended up rubbish.

 

We usually meet up at a friends flat beforehand (Pinnacles to those who know sheffield) and have a few drinks, one of the guys who practically lives there wasn;'t going and thus tried to persuade others not to go out, which made the host upset and angry as he's been a pain recently.

 

Then I got to pounded and ended up nearly throwing up with a massive headache, so I was there for half an hour and had to come home.

 

Big big pile of wank.

 

The guy who asked me out last week then somehow turned me down tried it again this morning. Go away.

 

Oh and I have a date friday. Go me. :laughing:

 

EDIT: OOH I just read back, well done Sheikah!

Well done, Sheikah. If I were one or both of your parents (don't ask how that would work) I would be proud of you and give you a well done handshake, hug or little kisssss.

 

Today has been a good day, but the kids are such hard work. Just yesterday, I was told that two of the 6 year olds in another class were caught shoplifting. Gah. Its challenging, but rewarding, yet also very tiring at the same time. I've been working at the same school since last Monday, and they've also told me that they want me back for the next three weeks before Easter, covering numerous classes around the school. 2 and a half days a week. So, the other 2 and a half days will be spent getting other work or chillaxing. Altogether, thats 2 weeks of full time work there (which will be ending on Friday) and then 3 or so weeks of 2.5 days. Yes school. Gimme all your monies!

 

I came home, made myself a cuppa and played Battalion Wars 2. This is a good evening. Footie on tonight, too.

Feel so horrible...have a cold/flu-y thing (no one else seems to) and just have a heavy head and sniffly nose and shit.

 

My tutor is coming round to my house tomorrow morning to look at what I'm doing because for some unknown reason I can't play my final cut project on the final cut at college. No clear reasons, files of the same type play fine, my one just says "No".

 

Better tidy up/do more work. :(

Thanks man. They were happy, bought me a Chinese takeout and had a card with some money. I think we'll be celebrating on Friday somehow and my girlfriend will be here. :D

 

It's nice to hear that you're getting work at a school - that's the way in. For me, the way in was contacting a supervisor and showing interest in his work, travelling to London to see his lab, etc. It's all about starting from the bottom and working your way up. :)

My day was pretty good. Didn't feel too good when i woke up, so decided not to go to school. I slept for an hour, and then i felt good again. Didn't feel like walking the 4 kilometres to school, so I stayed home. I played Metroid Prime Trilogy(Collected 9 artifacts on the first game today!)and watched a movie - Primal Fear. 'twas great, as every movie starring Norton is. Gere was just a bonus. At three o' clock I went swimming. I swam 1000 metres, and now I'm extremely tired. Gonna go get some sleep soon. Think I'll read some first. Or play some more Metroid. All the variables..
