It's Wednesday, I'm sitting here writing this post and watching My Family on DVD, has anyone noticed how much Zoe Wanamaker smiles in this?
Anyway, I have the common cold or 'acute viral nasopharyngitis' as I like to call it. I have not slept properly in the last two nights because when you lay back, your nose blocks up and so you spend about 20 minutes trying to get into the right position with the large number of pillows, the height of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Did not go to school yesterday, so I caught up on my lying down, my moping around, to be completely honest, I can't bare not going to school, I hate catching up on work.
Before I continue, I am going to give you my playlist for the week.

Over the past few weeks, an idea has been forming, that idea... The McGillian. To make things clear, the house I am a part in at school is called McGills and because of my partiality to a bit of writing, I thought, 'hey!' why not start up the house magazine again?
Well to cut a short story, shorter, three weeks later, several conversations and hours of computer publishing, the magazine has been created *Dr.Frankenstein's laughter, it's alive!*All I need now are the articles, the modern and intellectual magazine about the house, for the house includes all the latest news about the pupils, what they have taken part in and what we have done to make the school a better place. Of course that is not it, in the 12 pages, we also have reviews, discussions and interviews. There are plenty of pictures and hopefully will be well received, so far, the few friends who have seen the design have liked it.
Brain storm the other, was had, says Yoda. I thought, why just a magazine? Why not bring the tradition into the 21st century? 100% of the aimed readers have computers with internet connection, so why not open a website as well? http://themcgillian.blogspot.com was then created, this will have all the articles from the current issue but because of the half termly release date, the site will be updated with all the latest news as it comes in... My head is full of ideas... OOO... :D
In other news, let's look at more reasons why this blog is not just another nobodies blog, why read the commons's student's blog? As well as the mind boggling discussion? The reviews, the works by myself and of course practice for my massive career LOL///
The beauty of the nature of the day, was the topic of choice and today was filled with very little but in the magnificent void that was today, I planned many journey.
The life list ATM!:
1. Get AAAB at AS
2. Get AAA at A2
3 Get into a gr8 university (There are some in mind :D)
4. Do brilliantly there and decide on the career of my choice, I want to be one of those gifted people who gets the choice...
5. Get jobs///Find love///Move country///Be happy...
Of course the very last point will take a very long time and as Peter Vardy (philosopher...) said last Friday at a special lecture for RS students, people always want to be happy. He was not being cynical, he was being (what's the word- it's when he is not talking rubbish and although you may not like the truth, it is the truth!) Anyway, he said that people always want to be happy but they won't be because something is always bound to go wrong, well if that is the case Mr.Vardy then don't let my succeeding get in the way of your opinions.
Between each of my life list points of course are things for the here and now- like I hope the first issue of The McGillian is liked and that maybe at some point in an English lesson we will be able to finish 'Heart of Darkness' and that we will finish 'The Second Coming' in R.S!
Tell you something funny...(who is he talking to?) Today in Media, the best subject I (Heart) Media! Um... well yesterday on my sick day, my class watched Britz for the exam and so I watched it at home but saw further than my class saw, well let's say I used the wrong word and changed the meaning... I said to my teacher, I surpassed you, when I meant to say passed you... he found the joke in this, HEHE!
We were learning about Type A today in Psychology- if you are Type A then you have a set of characteristics that includes being impatient, excessively time-conscious, insecure about one's status, highly competitive, hostile and aggressive, and incapable of relaxation. The Type B personality, in contrast, is patient, relaxed, and easy-going. There is also a Type AB or Type X mixed profile for people who cannot be clearly categorized and have a combination of both types of personality. In case you are interested, I am a mix of the two, Type X!
Time for another piece of music, number 5 for the list above, Envy & Other Sins
Hope you liked :D
And to finish, time for a poem:
She moved out across the stepping stones,
Head in hands,
Her tears fall slowly,
And the blood flows thickly.
As she feels the pain of the her murder,
She looks upon the meaning,
As she see’s his ghost,
They were once lovers,
Within each other.
Her baby kicked hard,
His baby kicked harder,
Slowly she looks up,
And see’s the darkness around her.
She played the game,
And she lost,
She saw the game played,
The devil met her beyond the river side,
They met beyond the sea,
In another world the baby cried,
Blood of tears,
And river of hate.
She looked at a book,
In which says we are sinners,
And she reviews her situation,
And her life is in review.
Watch out for a review, coming any day now :D
