Currently I'm...#11


Reading:
I'm still in my reading slump so I haven't actually read anything since 'Currently I'm...#10'. I'm planning to read We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver in the next couple of weeks because I told my English teacher that I would... I've also been meaning to re-read The Catcher In The Rye because I need to be an expert on it if I want to use it for my dissertation. I guess I'm falling behind a little bit. :'D

Watching:
Same as always; I watch University Challenge, America's Next Top Model, Child Genius (don't judge me), Glee, Virtually Famous and, as of tonight, THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE-OFF. GBBO is one of my all-time favourite TV shows and I've never missed an episode since it started in 2010. I will never love a contestant as much as I love James Morton (he will always have a little piece of my heart (not even kidding, don't judge me for this either)) but I love GBBO every year and I'm sure that this season will be no exception. Can you tell that I'm excited? :D As for YouTube, I've been loving Ewan's recent stuff over on RadHaggis, and JonBeHere recently made a hilarious video about hitting 987 subscribers, which you can see here.

Listening To:
5 Seconds Of Summer...a lot of 5SOS...and I don't regret it at all. I'm a little bit late to the 5SOS party but now that I'm here, I'm fully throwing myself into it. Like, I'm the one who turns up an hour late but gets drunk straight away, hugs everyone there and is the only one dancing most of the time. We all know that person. My favourites are probably Amnesia and Voodoo Doll but especially the acoustic-y versions. They have an amazing 'one mic, one take' version of Voodoo Doll which is life-changing (maybe not but you catch my drift) and a gorgeous acoustic set of Amnesia.

Eating:
Way too much carrot cake.

Loving:
This doesn't exactly fit the 'loving' heading but I just needed to share my exam results with everyone and didn't know how else to incorporate it. :'D On Tuesday the 5th of August (so, yesterday) I got the results for the Higher exams I sat back in April and May. I've been mildly freaking out about these results and felt incredibly sick before I opened them but it actually all kind of paid off in the end. I got A's in administration and english, B's in modern studies and biology, and a D in maths, which I had been miserably failing all year. I'm insanely relieved and I did a lot better than I was expecting. YAY.  Thank you so much for all your lovely messages and tweets. ^_^ If you're at the result-receiving stage in your life, I hope you get what you want! Just remember that exams aren't the be-all and end-all of education and aren't even an accurate representation of how smart you are. It's all good! :3

Lots of love, Cat

  4. Congrats on your exam results that's really great!! Great British Bake Off is my favourite and James is just the cutest little thing I love him so much! ^.^ i am so happy that you love 5SOS they are my favourite band atm and I love them!! My favourite song of theirs would have to be Good Girls, mainly because I love French and want to study it at uni and I fangirl a little bit inside when they sing about being fluent in French! :S x

      Yeah, haha! I'm back at school on the 19th though so everything's just a bit earlier in Scotland. :P GOOD LUCK!! ♥
