Human Tetris!

Hello everyone, hope you’re all well! J

As time goes on I find it harder and harder to write this blog as I am working full time at the moment and barely have time to venture out into the world and have a social life. However, a few weekends ago I had my friend’s birthday weekend which can only mean one thing… ROADTRIP! I hopped into the car with my friend Michael, who you may also know as a blogger for the University, and we drove up to Surrey to stay at her house for the weekend.

You may remember in one of my previous blogs I did talk about this trip, well here it is. Myself, Michael, the birthday girl Claire and our other friends all arrived in Surrey on the Saturday in order to start the celebrations. On Saturday, we didn’t really do much it was just a case of catching up and chilling in the sun. Our summer activities included playing Badminton (I came second, I don’t care that it was only three people, second is still impressive) as well as playing board games such as Uno and Cluedo. I will admit that it was my first time playing both of these board games and I had a blast, Cluedo is my absolute favourite (I knew it was Reverend Green with a Spanner in the Conservatory).

After game night we then woke up very early on the Saturday as we were heading off to Church… But not Church as you know it. Basically there is a club in London called The Church Bar, which is only open Sundays from 11am until 4pm. So it is really bizarre being inside the club and having a drink and then coming out and still having the evening to do what you want.

Another amazing aspect of The Church Bar on this particular Sunday was that they were breaking a world record attempt of the largest game of Human Tetris! Which was purely amazing, they had several different Tetris sized costumes that we could purchase to take part and become Guinness World Record Holders. It was actually a really good time and I enjoyed myself, I haven’t been out with these people in so long and it was lovely to see them again and to obviously celebrate one of my best friend’s birthdays. Below is a picture of us in our Tetris costumes. I’m the one in the middle with the yellow Tetris block.

Sorry, it’s only a short one but as I said, it gets harder to have a social life when working full time, but I do try. Until next time J

Summer 2014

Hello everyone J Hope you’re all well.

Considering I am working full time, I’m actually doing quite a few other exciting things this summer. Firstly, I am visiting my friend in Surrey for the weekend to celebrate her 22nd birthday, which I am so excited about. We’ve done the same thing for her birthday for the past two years, gone up to visit her and had a barbeque and chilled out day on the Friday and gone out the Saturday night. This year I’m a bit more excited than I usually am as I haven’t seen her for ages and I miss her lots.

Another thing I am so excited about doing is going to the National Theatre to watch Billie Piper in a new play by Richard Bean called ‘Great Britain’.

The play is an anarchic and foul-mouthed satire about the press, the police and the political establishment. Billie Piper plays Paige Britain, an ambitious young news editor of The Free Press, a tabloid newspaper locked in a never-ending battle for more readers. I absolutely love Billie Piper in everything she does so I am very excited to see her live. I’ve liked Billie Piper ever since she was a singer with her first single, Because We Want to!

Other than that I am going to the cinema a lot as there are a lot of cool films out at the moment and Orange Wednesdays are awesome and make going to the cinema really cheap.

It’s only a short one today, but I thought I would just let you in on what I will be getting up to this summer.

Until next time J Goodbye!
