The Latest Goings On...

So basically. I haven't been updating this as much as I'd like to, due to having two jobs, and only getting a mere one day off a week.. if that.
So two nights ago. I went to bed around 4am. Luke, my flatmate was on a night out, and left the back door unlocked so he wouldn't wake me up when I came in. He came in around 6am, and in the morning discovered his laptop and charger had gone, as well as our back door key.
Yes. We'd been burgled, whilst I was alone asleep in the house. The thought of it is very creepy, and we had the police round yesterday morning and forensics.
This morning the locks have been changed. However I'm still very scared and nervous being alone in this house - (which is most of the time). Let this be a warning to people, always lock your back door no matter what!
With that palaver over. I have a ball coming up on Saturday and this is my dress:
Anyone have any ideas what colour shoes and bag to go with this?

End of Year Two

I've finished! FINI DONE OVER. I feel such a weight of my shoulders right now. I'm spending my summer however working full time, hopefully to save up for Berlin in September and Canada for New Year!
I'm feeling a little sad now, that going into 3rd year is going to be hard work. Like really hard.

So after being a student in Newcastle for 2 years now, I'm going to give a few tips on student life.

1. When deciding whether something is out of date, if it smells fine, eat it. Unless it's green then don't..
2. Always buy a metro ticket. Don't even risk it. I've learnt after 3 fines, even if the metro is there and you don't have time to buy one, BUY ONE. 
3. Don't take your card out on a night out, you will overspend and be the nice 'hey guys this ones on me!' and regret it fully in the morning. 
4. If you're gonna eat some of your housemates food, do try and replace it. They will like you a lot more. 
5. Try and budget.. ish... I sound like your mother. But blowing your whole loan in a month may be a fabulous idea at the time but not for the following months after...
6. Berocca is the cure for hangovers. I swear by it. That or the superdrug own version which is much cheaper.
7. Fancy dress is a must. You will need it, especially for Halloween!
8. Don't shop when hungover, I'm not sure if this applies to everyone, but I seem to purchase very unnecessary things.
9. Hot water bottle and blanket for those winter months is essential.
10. Take your bins out. You don't want any extra friends like we had :(

And finally some Geordie slang
Mortal = Drunk
I Cannit = I can't
Divvnt = Don't
Bairn = Baby
Radgy = A chav
Us/Is = me
Howay man = Is like a positive/negative phrase. Im not too sure on it yet either
Pet = What I am called by old geordie men when working
Doylem = idiot
