Life, As I Know It

So this week is going to be chaos. Total, utter, widespread chaos. Today I've been (just for a change) revising for my French essay exam on Tuesday morning. Straight after the exam, I have a revision-session-workshop-thing for my Germans essay exam on Friday morning, straight after the revision-session-workshop thing, I will be spending 4 hours travelling home for a hospital appointment that I can't cancel, because the next available appointment is at the end of June, straight after the appointment on Wednesday, you guessed it, a 4 hour train trip back to uni. Thursday will be spent chained to my desk revising for my Friday morning exam. Friday afternoon will be frenzied laundry and packing of notes for my Monday morning Spanish oral exam, because on Saturday, well Saturday will be a little bit special, I'll be spending another 3.5 hours on a train to take me to London Euston, where I will be meeting The Guy who had his birthday yesterday. I have some surprises lined up for him,( if you can't wait to see what we're going get up to, you can tweet me @chloelikes2talk) followed by 3.5 hours of train trip/frenzied revision on Sunday. So to sum up- 2 exams, one nasty hospital appointment, 15 hours on trains over 4 trips, frightening amounts of revision and a TON of excitement- forgive me if I'm not about too much over the next 7 days?

In the mean time, here's a little preview of some recent purchases, which I can't wait to share properly when I get 10 minutes to take some proper pictures and a day where I can actually bring myself to dress in more than just jeans and a t-shirt.

Don't tell me the colours on the right hand side don't excite you
And I wanted to share a few other things with you

1. Go check out Bee at Vivatramp and her Open Letter. She's fabulous and this sums it all right up!

2. Last week I was once again touched by the kindness of the bloggy people I've come across. Maria has reminded me that I believe in kindness (more on than here) and really made all the difference when I was shaking with rage. Go check her out at Frills n Spills

3. Strawberry flavoured Angel Delight. Go get yourself some now. Yes, I'm serious. No I haven't gone mad, yes it IS amazing. It's also pretty much the only food The Guy will not eat. Oh, what a shame, moreforemenevermind!

4. "If you're feeling low, do something lovely for someone else. It makes you feel good and stops isolated and introspective thoughts."
This was a retweet of a retweet I saw a while ago on Twitter, unfortunately I can't remember who wrote it. But a stellar piece of advice.

So hasta luego, bis bald, be good, and if you can't be good please tweet me so I can take pleasure in somebody else and their badness!
