Thank Goodness!

Posted on April 23rd, 2010 by Kirsty Adams

My heart has now officially stopped beating a trillion times a minute. Since the stupid volcano decided to spit out its contents I have been worrying that I wouldn’t be able to go on my holidays, not getting money back, being double booked, airlines going bust…etc, etc. Finally it has stopped and now I, and most other people going on holiday soon, can sleep in peace!
But this volcano has brought new worries into my mind about my travelling back from Cyprus alone! I’ve never flown on my own before and I’m terrified that something is going to happen that will stop me from getting back home. As much as I’d love to stay in Cyprus, I wouldn’t like to stay in the airport, I would much prefer to return to horrible old England.

Oh how I would love to be sat outside in the sunshine right now!

A review of my time with html

Posted on April 13th, 2010 by Kirsty Adams

I don’t really like it…at all.

It’s too difficult and I’ll never be able to read it…ever.

Although, Tizag did help me out in getting a webpage started. The only problem there was I copied and pasted the codes it told me to and then I saw what the codes turned into. I didn’t really understand what they were and what they did. I find it very hard to grasp. There’d be times where I thought I was getting it and then I’d have a go at changing the codes and everything and it wouldn’t do anything! So, I don’t like it because I can’t do it!
Even when I used Sharepoint and it shows you the html codes above the normal text, I couldn’t fathom out which went with what…apart from the line break code, I know that one! Sharepoint was pretty fun to use though!

So there it is. There’s my review.

Stupid Builders

Posted on April 9th, 2010 by Kirsty Adams

It is a well-known fact that students can sleep for days on end, and if they don’t get enough sleep they become extremely groggy. Say hello to your new Groggy Student Employee =| Last week I spent my week from Tuesday to Sunday getting up at 7am to walk a dog in the rain on the boggiest field you could ever imagine, to then try and clean this dog who would not sit still! I then come home to my horrid student house which is so cold it felt as though I was walking into a freezer. THEN…for the whole of this week I’ve been woken up at 8am every morning by the stupid builders who are messing about with our roof. I don’t care that my roommates’ ceiling is leaking…let me sleep for goodness sake!!! So, instead of having a nice relaxing easter, I have been walking far too many steps and I have been awake for far too many hours considering I have had nothing to do. Us students have to sleep!
Exams are coming up pretty soon and I can’t revise because all I want to do is sleep…its been a horrible easter break. I wish exams would hurry up and be over so I can jet off to a couple of hot countries, yes please!!

This is Missy, the lovely dog that we looked after...

...And this is what the lovely dog did on her walks!
