Rain, rain, go away.

The weather is practically SCHIZOPHRENIC at the moment, and it's driving me up the wall! It's supposed to be Summer, but we've had hail, thunderstorms, heavy rain, cloud, blustery winds and the occasional 10 minute sunny spell before the whole cycle starts again. I wish it would make up its mind. Actually, no, I wish I could control it so we could actually have some sunny, summery weather for once in June. 

Not only is it depressing, it's also stopping us from completing items on our list! So time has to be devoted to the more rainy-day challenges. Dream diaries are going well, it's really funny to read back the entries now we're a week in, I really don't remember half the dreams now! And we've bought our canvases from The Works so Jemima and I can get started on painting pictures for each other, very exciting! Also been filling up my terramundi with any £1 coins I can lay my hands on, so by Christmas I should (in theory) be filthy rich.
And hopefully at least if the blustery weather keeps up, we might be able to fly a homemade kite. So it's not all bad.

In terms of my own list, well, it's going slowly. I've watched another new film: Teeth. Incredibly disturbing, and not one I'd recommend for the faint hearted / those with any cinematic taste whatsoever. For those that haven't heard of it, the film is based on the idea of "Vagina Dentata", i.e. A woman with teeth inside her vagina, which jump to her defence when "necessary"... Let's just say it contains graphic scenes.

Oh, I've uploaded a copy of mine and Jemima's list too, so both lists are up here now. Lots to do, time is ticking!

The start of our adventures!

Tonight marks the start of mine and Jemima's list of things to do. We celebrated with champagne and cheesecake!

We have already crossed off one of our "foods/drinks we've never tried" with our CHAMPAGNE BREAKFAST (yes, that's right). Tonight we're going to start our dream diaries for a month, and we've also started putting together our time capsule to be opened in 2020, first things first writing letters to each other for when we're both 30. What a terrifying thought - we might each be married with kids with a mortgage by then...

Right now, I couldn't be enjoying life any more. College is over for the year, I'm spending the evening with one of my closest friends and a bottle of rosé, and can't wait for the rest of our adventures to start :-)

In other news, on my own list...I've watched the Social Network, which was a pretty awesome film it has to be said. For those that haven't seen it, it was all about the creation of facebook, and the legal troubles that Mark Zuckerberg faced as a result. Very intrinsic observations about the American university social life, and how that has now been completely transferred onto the internet. As one character quoted in the film: "We lived on farms, we lived in cities, now we're going to live on the internet!" Pretty thought-provoking.
