Well my weekend was a blast, I had an allergic reaction on Saturday night and have now been forced in to taking a course of steroids.
I have no idea on how to start or end the whole allergy sitch, but all I can say is lately I have just become so forgetful about my allergy that it seems to be occurring quite a lot; however I can say that cashew nuts seem to be sneaking their way in to ravioli and Christmas pudding!
I was adamant that I was not going to take my epi pen because I have never taken it due to the fact it makes the whole situation seem a whole lot more serious than it actually is. Although I can safely say my mother, doctors and nurses say something quite the opposite. So instead of taking my epi pen I thought that I would take a double dose of anti histamines which didn't quite budge it, which resulted in me taking a trip to A&E. I have to say I was so calm, which is so unlike me because I am normally hysterical about almost everything, so to say I found it slightly amusing whilst terrifying  is not far off.
After being pumped full with drugs I was safe to go home, with the DREADED STEROIDS and anti histamines that I had to take for several days after. I know that steroids make you put on weight, but when I hopped on the scales today I wanted to cry, I felt dreadful. I have a party this coming Saturday and I honestly feel like I am going to be a fat lump. It's not like I have put on a stone, no, but I have been so good diet wise this week and to even have a gain is mortifying. Today is my last day on the roids, so hopefully any gained weight will kindly remove itself before the party. I know I should be thankful to still be alive and I truly am, but I have been losing weight for a while now and when I actually want to look good, I feel like I am going to look rather... well, ouhbjfdv.
Have a nice week!

Catch up baby

Hi everyone, 
How quick has this year flown by already? It's crazy! 
I thought after the January exams I would have plenty of time to lounge about, but I have had practise exam papers coming from all angles, I swear we have only just started the modules?! I am completely loving English Language at the moment as I have been getting decent grades and I can apply the correct theorists so all is good in that area, its just every where else that is driving me gaga. Psychology, well the essays are just so monotonous and are making me ever so bored, even though I love the subject. Literature, I have so much to read and do no know where to start. And Art, seriously do not get me started. 
Apart from the chaos at school, life is treating me well for once, if you discount the fact that mumma has been ill. Plenty of socialising and watching house, all ingredients to make me happy. I have been so happy that a teacher asked me if I am with someone, which I sadly am not. I have a few birthday parties coming up with relatively no money, which is dreadful, as I need outfits to wear and money to go out. 
Another thing that has made me smile, is that ages ago (cannot remember when, but it was before christmas) I was stressing because I needed to enter a writing competition, because I needed to show off my writing skills and what have you and I found one that I thought I would enter. I left it until that night and I was stressing out so much, I just thought what am I doing? (As what do I know about the question "Who should be responsible for teaching you about personal finance?" as personal finance+me=£0) Anyway to cut a long story short, I entered the article half an hour before the deadline. Then on Friday I received a letter in the post, congratulating me on the fact that I had made the final shortlist, but unfortunately did not win and would receive a £25 book token for myself and a £50 book token for my school. I was quite pleased with myself and kinda wished that I hadn't procrastinated so much before hand as I could have written a really good article (oh the beauty of hindsight), any way I did learn one thing; do not leave everything to the last minute!
