Lent 2012 Progress..

So it's not even been a week yet and I managed to break my Lent! I managed to stay off bread for breakfast during weekdays, for all of one day. And I managed to stay off fizzy drinks for about 3 days? I accidentally took a sip from a friend while blindfolded.. On the 4th sip I realised I had given them up for Lent. Now I'm sick so I'm drinking a fizzy Lucozade (a Powerade equivalent here in the UK). I haven't done Zumba once this week, and I also didn't go to badminton on Monday like I normally do because I'm sick.

I have however been on time, which is good, and I'm starting to be more productive, if anyone follows me on Twitter then they would have received my updates on how quickly I was getting through my to-do list! Most of my to-do list is to do with organisation so I'm doing that. The other thing I'm extremely proud of myself for is that I've been able to stay off crisps (chips to you Americans)! Now I'm a crisp-aholic, so this is quite a big deal for me!

Hopefully I can stay off the crisps and keep on doing the other good things I've taken up!

Wish me luck!

    1. I was all excited that I had a comment then, but it's only you!

      Yes I should probably explain that..

      It's very boring, not exciting at all. For my dissertation I need to dark adapt people, so I was sitting in a room blindfolded trying to be dark adapted so that I could be a subject in my experiment, which my good friend kindly ran for me, which is basically comparing vision in light conditions (light room) to dark conditions (dark room). If you don't adapt properly the experiment doesn't work so well, hence me sitting there and them passing me drinks etc. They also filmed me blindfolded eating Prawn Crackers... not amused.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

[9/29]Track of the Day

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
