Point of difference

I found this What's your point of difference? article very interesting. If do want to do something crafty, I need to think about my U.S.P. as there are many, many amazing crafters out there.

Blizzard of '77 - Nada Surf

This song makes me feel a little sad. Maybe a lot sad (great use of language there, Laura). One of my closest friends is moving away for university and I'm really gonna miss him. However, in the grand scheme of things, I know I'll know him until we're old and wrinkly, so what's five years??

Procrastination is my middle wait it's Louise!

Uh oh! May have put off sorting out my student loan this year......
Well, I say that but I actually was quicker than quick to apply for my loan, then realised my fees were going up (Thanks Con/Dem government!) and had to complete a change of circumstances form. Sorted right? No, not at all. I get a text saying:

Your student loan application is nearly there - but we can't pay you until you sign and return the declaration form we sent you.

I did indeed get sent this form, then moved house and lost it in the process. And it's almost impossible to find exactly what you're looking for on their website. If only I could email to request one, things would be easy. However, the reality is I have to ring them on my mobile, costing me the price of a small island, and speak to an "advisor". Well, I do believe that an "advisor" advises, past experience, however, tells me that they are much better at "giving unhelpful information". In short, I've been putting off speaking to them as I doesn't do anything for my stress levels. But I guess, when someone is giving you money, it's something I need to do sharpish.

Plus I won't be able to enrol.

More faffing.

Yorkshire Lavender

So, seeing as I was ill yesterday (still am!) I took a trip to Terrington, near Castle Howard, to Yorkshire Lavender. I thought it would be good to practise my photography skills and I'm pretty impressed with myself.

I hate being ill :(

Snotty, snotty, snotty! What joy!

I'm gonna go get some fresh air and explore - resting is boring.

Leeds Light Night 2009

Beautiful Losers

I can't wait for this film to arrive from Amazon 

Mister Lonely

Some of Harmony Korine's previous work, Mister Lonely. It looks quite bizarre so I'm sure I'll like it, best add it to the wish list :)

Trash Humpers

I saw this at Leeds Festival in the alternative stage.........very very weird. I am however, intrigued so I think I'll look into the film maker's other work (Harmony Korine).

I've been a little distracted of late. Things on my mind and the fact that I've been working full time all summer. I've started to see areas in my life that I'm not happy with so I foresee some big changes ahead. Starting with my job. I need to decide if I want this responsibility. 

I'm off to Leeds Fest today, so I have some time to contemplate.

Love sucks

I wish I could switch off right now and reboot.

It would make everything easier to do.

I'm looking forward to September and also dreading it.

Love sucks.

I actually laughed out loud when I read this the other night!
