Writing an essay... again

 Ahh... The art of writing a good essay...

So tomorrow I will be handing in my last essay (again). I hadn't writen one for ages! I was quite excited to start it actually (geek)! Once I got started I found it really easy, apart from when it came for me to go through it all. Urgh, editing! I was over my word count and really wanted to write more!

Overall I enjoyed the experience, but I am glad that I dont have any more to write! I think the phrase 'the grass is greener...' fits well here as I get jealous of my other mates at Uni. but now Ive had another taste of what it was like again... Im alright for that cheers! haha

The Short Life of Bree Tanner

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella (Twilight Saga)
A Quick Review of 'The Short Life of Bree Tanner'

If like me, you loved reading the Twilight Saga, then you will love this book too. It gives background to the third book and the new film which is out now (Eclipse). It is the story of the newborns and in particular a girl called Bree.

"Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had uncannily powerful senses, superhuman reflexes and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood... life before she became a vampire...
"All Bree knows is that living with her fellow newborns has few certainties and even fewer rules: watch your back, don't draw attention to yourself and, above all, make it home by sunrise or die. What she doesn't know: her time as an immortal is quickly running out. Then Bree finds an unexpected friend in Diego, a newborn just as curious as Bree about their mysterious creator, whom they know only as "her". As they come to realize that the newborns are pawns in a game larger than anything they could have imagined, Bree and Diego must choose sides and decide whom to trus. But when everything you know about vampires is based on a lie, how do you find the truth?"

My advice is to read it! But remember, there are no chapters in it and its a short book, so make it last!! xxx

Congrats Danny!

My lovely boyfriend is now a graduate. Well done Dan!

Just a quick one... well, two!

I just thought I'd share two songs that keep getting stuck in my head.

One is from 'Fake Blood' called 'I Think I Like It'

(skip to 0:55 to get the good bits)

The second is 'Yolanda Be Cool' with 'We Speak No Americano'

(skip to 0:40 to get the good bits)

They are catchy, but you have to give them a chance!

xxx Have a listen!! xxxx
