A week in words –

Another week over.
Yes I know it’s only Thursday but I tend to count my week as a London week, and I am back off to Norfolk tonight.

This week has mainly been about :

  • Dissertation 
  • Lord of the Rings.
  • London Fashion Week envy
  • Methods of Theft

So I did my literature review, and emailed it to el’ tutor. And apparently I have just jumped the gun and focused on my question too quickly.
SO whilst I don’t have to delete what it is I have written, it IS in the wrong place. I also need to read more widely, not just about east coast and rural locations. Because I just narrow it down from that.
I do not have an academic brain, so this literature review part is killing me. I know when I get to writing up the research methods and results I will breeze through that, but I always mess up the lit.
                      It’s not that I can’t read, I read Lord of the Rings when I was 12 for crying out loud. I read too much, thats my problem. I can’t pick out what is relevant and what is just gibberish.
It’s not like I have a choice about this though – it’s my final piece really, and has to be a 2:1 or I will end up with a 2:2 – which isnt’ the end of the world as I don’t personally think I will even use this blasted degree.

Working at the Coffee Shop that shall not be named during London Fashion week is a cruel and unusal form of torture. For one thing it manages to make you feel like the shortest person in the world, and definitely not the thinnest. But the worst part of it all are the bags. Oh the bags.

When you are on the till they just dump them down in front of you and rummage for their purse, and you just watch in envy. Mulberry, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs.
I mean I HAVE a Marc Jacobs bag and it still kills me.

SO my therapy for this….

 I went to Mulberry, and bought a scarf. If you know me at all, you know I will wear the moneys worth of this scarf within two months, as I am never without one. And it’s SO pretty.

Speaking of the CoffeeShopThatShallNotBeNamed – we have a problem at the moment with theft. People coming in, grabbing sandwiches and walking out. This is the norm though. But Yesterday I saw first hand the methods people will go to to steal.
I had my phone on the table, and a young girl came up to me , dropped a piece of paper on the table near my phone, and started talking at me in a language I didn’t understand.
                Little did I know that she was dropping the piece of paper ONTO my phone so that whilst I was distracted by her, she would pick up the paper AND my phone and go. Luckily a work colleague knew this trick and was with me at the time, so knew strait away what was up and kicked her out – during this she started shouting and mouthing off – although what she said I will never know lol.


At some point this weekend I will be writing a review about the Lord of the Rings films.

Yes I am perfectly aware they came out 10 years ago – but me and the ex-housie went to the BFI last weekend and watched them all back to back, and it threw out some points.
                      So brace yourself.

Much love.
