Shockingly, I still exist

Hello, I've decided it's about time I stopped lurking and started posting again. I've been actually doing things with my life, which has come as a surprise to me. Basically, I've decided that I want to be a primary school teacher, which will be another year of study after my degree has finished, and I'm really hoping I can do the course at Oxford Brookes, because then I can still live in Oxford, which is something I really want to do. I came to this conclusion after starting volunteering at the local primary school two days a week, which is one of the main reasons why I haven't been posting much! It's amazing and awesome and I love working with the yr 1 kids (ages 5 and 6), but it is tiring like you wouldn't believe, and completely wipes me out for at least a day afterwards. But I'm outside! Doing useful things! I'm pretty proud of myself.

I need to write some stuff about the Hay Festival which I went to last weekend, that might get done later today.

I've signed up to hc_bingo. Don't ask me why I keep signing up for challenges since I never seem to complete them. I basically have no sense, but you all knew that already. My card is below the cut. It's got lots of squares which I'd like to do, but they don't line up properly. I'd rather like to move them around a bit to get the lines I want, but that's probably not allowed!
