Life Experience, Misc.

Happy Bunny

It’s Friday and I haven’t been at work. The whole school has had a well-earned day off and I have relished in it. I woke up in Stockport after going to the Manchester Christmas Markets last night (which were amazing btw and the hot chocolate and Baileys was omg amazing) at a reasonable hour and enjoyed a wonderful morning of catching up on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and omelettes. Then we caught the train back to York and are planning on pigging out on a takeaway tonight. I can’t say enough how much this day means to me, just to chill out and relax, to not be that stressed or tired and to enjoy myself. Full time work has hit me hard and I’m struggling more than I thought I would, particularly with how much energy I have. After living a care free life at uni, the world of work has shocked me and I don’t like it.

But that’s why today has been so amazing. I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a Friday so much. And that’s the thing. You don’t enjoy or appreciate each day if you’re doing nothing in between lectures or don’t have a job but when you do have a day off, it’s the most wonderful thing you can experience ever.

And that’s why I’m so happy, sitting here in my wooly poncho, watching How I Met Your Mother feeling the happiest girl in the world. And tomorrow? Tomorrow I’m going to Leeds to meet my mum to do some Christmas shopping and I am so, so, so excited. Christmastime is here and I adore it.

New Page: Life on Mars

“My name is Sam Tyler.

I had an accident and woke up in 1973.

Am I mad, in a coma, or back in time?

Whatever’s happened, it’s like I’ve landed on a different planet.

Now, maybe if I can work out the reason, I can get home.”

This is my favourite TV show and I remember actually watching it when it was being broadcast on the TV, which I’m afraid I can’t say a lot for nowadays. As soon as I watched the first episode, I was hooked, it was like something I had never seen before and I just fell in love with it immediately. It has to be said that my favourite character is the might Gene Hunt, Detective Chief Inspector of the Greater Manchester Police in 1973. I mean, it’s such an original idea: a cop from 2006 is in a car accident and when he wakes up, he’s gone back in time by 33 years, he’s been demoted to Detective Inspector and gets flashbacks to his childhood as a four year old and hears hospital noises from the  present day.

I’m not going to go into some massive review about it, there’s no point and I can’t be bothered to be frank. But I will say that I found it so easy to fall in love with all the characters; Sam, Gene, Chris, Ray and Annie and then all the extras that dip in and out as they do in dramas.

So instead of going off on one about how amazing Life on Mars is, this page is going to be filled with pictures and things like that, because they’re far more interesting than reading the crap that comes out of my brain and onto the computer, right? :)

BUT! DO NOT confuse this Life on Mars with the utterly SHITE American rip off. No, just no. It even got cancelled before the first series finished. Only watch the English version. The only version.
