The uses of monosodium glutamate (MSG)

I have a biology exam tomorrow but blogging really is addictive. I haven’t got a specific interesting event to write about, but then again those don’t usually come around too often in my life. Exams are getting tedious. The daily routine of waking up to cram for an exam and then returning home to start another subject is exhausting and I don’t think I have it in me to continue this for another 40 days! (Yes, I have a countdown on my desktop.)

However, I do have time and energy to keep up my extra activity rituals. I had yet another netball match this evening, against the Marshalls from Hornchurch.
For those of you who don’t know, I play borough league for the London Borough of Redbridge, or RB Cyans for short 🙂
Sport allows me to release the anger and frustration I get from exams* and other daily routines in a sensible, constructive and positive way. Safe however isn’t an adjective I would use in that list. Although netball is a non-contact sport, we are just as violent as men are playing football. The only difference is: at the end of the match, us ladies, will smile, shake hands and apologize for any physical injuries or mental scars we have forced upon each other.

Anyway,  I should have started biology revision at 8pm; it is now 8:27pm. I’m feeling an all-nighter coming along. Please do comment to keep me company. Have a good evening bloggers.

*exams- God save me!

Some have completely the wrong idea of blogging

On Tumblr, http://www.theatlantic.tumblr.com, I read a post which went a bit like this…

“I loathe blogs when I look at them. Blogs look to me illiterate, they look hasty, like someone babbling. To me writing is a considered act. It’s something which is a great labor of thought and consideration. A blog doesn’t seem to have any literary merit at all. It’s a chatty account of things that have happened to that particular person.”

I was disgusted! Blogs may not be nationally published or sold in bookstores but not everything written has to be thought out or deeply considered. Some great ideas and opinions come from chain of thought and that is what blogs are. The ability to write about one’s life which can be referred to by others is an art in its own right. I was not saying the writer of this post was wrong; I guess it is just matter of opinion.

On a merrier note, my destination for the summer of 2011 has been confirmed: Albufeira, Algarve, South Portugal. I’m so excited and wish it could come around sooner!

I’ve forgotten how difficult it is to start up a new blog

I’ve decided to start up a new blog, solely for one reason. The readers of my first blog (which I’m still writing) knew who I was. That isn’t a problem as such but it meant I couldn’t write about personal thoughts without people I know, knowing. Understand?

So, I’ve decided to start up FalseName, somewhere I can express my true feelings. I’ll tell you a few details… I’m a 16 year old girl. (Just so you know I’m not a creepy pervert.
