    Yeh, how do I access it? The UCAS site seems to have been streamlined like a cat in a busy road.

    I've already filled most the stuff in, but I'm bored and I want to have a play with things.

    Can I type a URL in to access it? If not, when does it come back?

    Ah, it flashed up an error message for ages, but now it has produced an explanation saying it's back tomorrow.

    Thanks.

    Is that because you've concentrated on the pictures, first and foremost?

    Er, by "read," I'm hoping you mean "I read one entry and then went away"?

    There's some damn incriminating stuff in there. Which reminds me, I have to lock it when I apply. Don't want Admissions tutors snooping around my entire life "I love Oxford I love Oxford" - sure LSE's going to give me an offer.

    By the way, did you want the .jpg of my faerie painting or summat? Was confused over that.

    To be honest 90% of my attention was caught by the picture.

    I had a skim over the first page and then signed the guestbook.

    Today's episode is a bit glum though...

    Ahh, Diaryland? Get used to it, it's usually glum.

    I also left a note just now on what I thought about her recent episode...
    Aah but cheerful happiness does not good writing make. Can you just imagine:

    "I'm soooooo happy! Yup yup, cheerful cheerful! I've never been happier in my life, lalalalalala." (Because it's very difficult to think up something to write about if you're not passionate about it, when your muse has flown away and if you're not in a particularly pensive mood). I also have a suspiscion that is going to be remarkably similar to entries in our favourite happy bunny's livejournal. Weeeee, chirpiness! Who's a happy bunny today, lovely munchkins?

    Seriously, when I had happy moods, the writing was awful. Positively dire! Happiness is way over-rated. :cool:

    Nonsense, I'm strongly against suicide. And I don't like Cambridge!

    *has come to the end of all she knows about Plath* Er, I can ramble about Hughes? We did him at GCSE

    Cut up? Yes. Because I know I can do better. And my parents aren't...particularly happy about my marks, to put it lightly.

    I won't be satisfied until I have results reflecting what I can actually do, rather than what I've achieved after both dossing the entire year and having a lot of family problems, which would have been mentioned on the UCAS form if I'd got lower than AAAA. The results are average. I want to be brilliant.

    But to be fair, for a diarist, I'm rather a happy person. You have to trawl through an abundance of thirteen-year-olds talking about cutting themselves and death before you realise how chirpy I am

    I want to laugh though! And so do you. Don't get yourself into a rut.

    I don't know your situation, you don't know mine - but I'm confident that a lot of people have to deal with rubbish.

    At least life keeps us on our toes.
