I went to see Tintin on Wednesday. It was wonderful and happy-making. I had an absolutely fantastic time and came out going "I want to own that on DVD."

I have many thoughts on Merlin, but am not sure I can express them significantly. It mainly consists of flailing. Lots of flailing. I went to a group watching of Merlin on Saturday with some friends of mine, which was amazing. Although I felt the need to check how old the host's younger brother was as our conversation wasn't entirely clean. Luckily, he was older than he looked so we could carry on making jokes about people jumping onto Gwaine's sword. Also, Agravaine. He is even more obvious than Morgana and her smirks of EVIL.

So yeah, my life isn't particularly exciting at the moment. I currently want to kill UCAS and am having doubts about even going to uni as a result. I want to, I want to study history so much, but I'm still very scared.

I got back from Portugal on Thursday and promptly slept a great deal. Portugal was good, if too hot for me. It was certainly interesting to go away with such a large group of people who I'm not related to. It took a while for us to learn to live with each other, mainly surrounding the issue of food. Somehow, a large number of my friends were unaware that I ate a large amount. This is partly to do with the fact that I often ate little in school due to feeling ill. One day my life will revolve fractionally less around food, but that's a fair way off. The beach was only about a two minute walk away from our apartments, so for that I have to take my hat off to Hattie who did all the research and organisation surrounding the holiday. We built a rather nice fort system, complete with reservoir, reserve reservoir (Max pointed out that the inhabitants couldn't drink it due to it being salt water, the rest of us insisted that the population knew how to desalinate the water), administrative centre (we gave them public libraries and a free education system) and a poor district which was outside the main city walls but inside the outer walls (complete with union head quarters and numerous brothels). We also built a hill fort and buried numerous people. My friends are kind of crazy. I enjoyed parts and didn't enjoy others. But then again, I tend to feel that way about most holidays. My friend Alex though gets a special award for knowing exactly when to offer anyone a cup of tea. His super power is knowing when to make tea. It is quite possibly the most awesome super power ever.

Also, note to self: next time I go on holiday, make sure that my friends are aware of my issues with heat, as well as my mental health issues. Everybody was really understanding when I told them that I didn't feel up to something emotionally, but less so when I said that I couldn't go out because it was too hot. I really dislike heat stroke.

When I got back from holiday, it was to be greeted by vast amounts of bunting. This was because, whilst I was away, my village was hosting a week long music event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support called Fringe in the Fen. This confused me partly because just the other week, in a nearby village, there was a Fen Edge festival, which struck me as being rather "yay! we're not part of the fens! we're on the edge, get it right." And yet now we're part of the fens. Cue inbred sterotype jokes here. I went to the final performance of the week though and it was beautiful. A concert band, a chamber orchestra and a combination of local choirs performed. I had to come home at the interval as I was exhausted, but what I heard was amazing. And then I got to watch the firework finale from my bedroom window. I had been trying to sleep, but it was rather loud so I figured I might as well watch it. Rather nice.

Also, as a last little note. I saw Deathly Hallows yesterday. McGonagall is my absolute favourite.

It is absolutely chucking it down with rain at the moment. I am very glad for this, after it being alarmingly hot yesterday and Sunday. I, rather stupidly, went on during the hottest part of the afternoon. We had a picnic to celebrate the end of exams, and went swimming (which was deliciously cold and stopped me wanting to collapse in a pile of melted goo for a while). The really annoying thing is that I'd just caught up on all the sleep I'd missed during exam season, when it got too hot for me to sleep properly. The important part, is no more exams! I now only have to go into college for leavers day (which annoyingly is first thing in the morning and on the same day as our leavers ball). Well, and results day, but I'm not thinking about that yet. Or at least trying not to.

In celebration of finishing our exams, we had a Pirates of the Caribbean marathon. It took me two hours to get there. It should have been a half hour journey at most. They closed part of the A14 as someone was attempting to jump off a bridge so none of the buses were getting through. I waited an hour, at which point my mum gave me a lift to another village whose bus service wasn't as badly affected. It was a nightmare. I did get there eventually though. There was much rum present, although I stuck to ginger beer (which is my favourite drink ever). It was good fun, even though it got rather hot due to how many of us there were crammed into my friend Emma's living room. And pizza and ice cream! I do like my friends rather.

I had a great time watching Glastonbury at the weekend. I saw the whole of Paul Simon's and Elbow's sets, as well as bits of Mumford and Sons, Paolo Nutini, Laura Marling, Pendulum and Jessie J. I sadly missed the Kaiser Chiefs due to Paul Simon, but that is what the internet is for! I plan to watch various bits and pieces on the BBC website, as I got really into it this year. And due to the lack of exams, I can do all of this with a guilt free conscience. That and read and watch tv. It's weird though, I keep feeling like I should be doing something. Sadly, the one thing I really need to do (move all my school notes off my bedroom floor) requires boxes, which we don't have. I am looking forward to seeing the floor again and not having to leap over piles of paper to get to the linen basket.
