Hello everyone

Hi everyone,

Well I've decided to make an appearance whether you want me or not! Ha ha.

I'm going to try get round some of your journals tonight. I miss not knowing what you are all up to - I feel out of touch but at the same time find it hard to keep up! Do you know what I mean?

I do feel better ish LOL! I'm starting to get myself motivated and doing stuff.  I joined an English GCSE group today to brush up on my English - I really enjoyed it! It was nice meeting lots of people from different backgrounds and we all had a story to tell. There was a lady who had been brought up in Dr Barnados homes and was pushed from pillar to post as a little girl - her story was touching.  There was a lady who had lived on the streets for six and a half years - her story we are yet to hear - Im not sure if she will share it with us - but she was a lovely lovely lady. A girl next to me had manic drepression - she had a word for it but I cant remember it now - bio something. Each and every one of us had some sort of reason why we had not done English well at school.  I think Im going to enjoy it - Im going to be writing lots of stories and reading Of Mice and Men and Othello!!! Not done any shakespeare in my life!!! I have read John Steinbeck novels but only a few when I was at school.

I put my application form into the school today - that took me a long time to do! I hope its ok!! Fingers crossed!

Today is the day that our grades are decided! Fingers crossed again!!

I must post some pics soon!

p.s. Im not sure if I like Big Brother much this time - Im not watching it like I used to! I can't stand that Charlie she is driving me bonkers!
