I'm sorry i've not updated in forever, but i've not been very motivated to post on here latley. I fail at getting jobs, i fail at having qualifications to even attempt to get a job, so i'm going back to college hopefully. I'm signing up on a photography and fine art's course today, the art course should involve figure and portrait drawing and that's exactly what i want. Hopefully they'll let me on the course, this is a chance for me to get my life sorted and back to how it should be. Wish me luck!

I'll try update again soon with any news, and i'll update with any new artwork i do, but cheerio for now to anyone who still reads this.

Yesterday i got a new phone, i hardly ever used my previous phone it was an Ericsson T68i i think (see i don't even know.) and i didn't like it much. I got to thinking having a new phone would be a nice idea, the idea of it anyway, me having a phone is pointless if don't use them, but anyway i kept seeing posters and advertisements of the Sony Ericsson K750i. This phone is awesome. Radio, Mp3 playback, 3D Java games, 2.0 Megapixel camera and also records video, a phone like that you'd expect it to be HUGE, but it's not! It's thin and it's tiny.
I always wondered why you would need all this stuff on a phone, a phone is just for ringing people and receiving phone calls, but with this...none of that matters anymore, i've not called anyone at all, i did give Warren a text to see if i actually could but apart from that i've just been using the camera, because this camera is basically a digital camera anyway, i've been uploading my pictures to my computer and i've been having so much fun with it(i'm sure this will wear off soon).

Anywho, i don't know why i bought a phone, i don't need a phone. But i'm glad i now have this phone. I was all for just receiving money for my birthday and shoving it in the bank, i told Dad it was pointless me having a phone and for some reason he disagreed, but i'm glad he did.

Also yesterday we went to "The English Lounge" for a meal here in Manchester, we ordered starters and a main meal. Dad, Mum and I ordered soup for a starter which was sweet and sour mushroom(was gorgeous.) Gary (My brother) ordered nachos. We got our starters, we had about 8 loafs of bread with our soup...seriously, there was lots of bread, and Gary's nachos came in the biggest dish i've ever seen, these weren't any ordinary starters, this was a feast fit enough for King Henry Eighth.
Anyway, after we stuffed ourselves with the starters, me having to do so twice cos' Gary needed help eating his, our main meals finally arrived. I had ordered a steak with mozarella cheese on top, Dad ordered a steak also, sirloin i think. Mum ordered some kind of chicken sandwhich with slices of chicken fillet and some kind of dressing sprinkled on, and Gary ordered Chicken Pasta...we thought the starters were huge, oh no. We were wrong, these plates were gigantic, and also to top it off (because we'd never been there before) we'd asked for some SIDE ORDERS of Garlic Bread, Onion rings and Chips, my god we wish we didn't. The meal was absoloutley gorgeous but none of us could finish, we totally over faced ourselves, at least we know next time to just go for a main though, or share a starter.

Gary said afterwards that everything we ordered was "American Portions" and i don't know if that's true, but if Americans eat all that on a daily basis then....well...i'll say no more.
