Japan beckons!

Alrighty. I’m off to Japan tomorrow for 10 days and it’s very likely I would update or check email at all, unless I get a lucky chance to use an Internet cafe. So goodbye and have fun to all for the next week and a half. I’ll be off to bed soon when I’ve finished […]

Room 101

Last night was good fun. I met Simon at Rainham station and we joined up with Jenni, Dave, Lianne and Chris on the train, and later Rob and Wai-sun in London. We had dinner at Zipangu first – all crowded into the small cavern area on the lower floor – which was great food and […]

Gap year form

Damn. Damn. Damn. I can’t believe I didn’t realise this. The reason my application hasn’t been processed yet is because I haven’t got my reference sent off to accompany it >.<. I was under the impression they’d ask for it at the interview or something, so i’ve just emailed Mr. Broomfield the stuff now, although […]

Had my R.S synoptic paper today, which went quite well I think. I just have General Studies tomorrow and then the dark Mechanics 2 paper on Friday. I think it may be all over for my maths if this paper goes badly like the other two did, which may even mean I wouldn’t have got […]
