This week I will be playing the voice for my fellow classmates. We have one teacher for three of our subjects who is honestly completely useless. She’s always seriously un-organised, turns up 30mins late to classes and is completely unable to give clear direction. This is creating a lot of stress and confusion for me, and also everyone else in the class, though they seem to be willing to just work around it. I think this is where my having a few years in a work environment is coming in handy because, while everyone else views her as a teacher and so feel that they can’t do anything, I see her as someone who is there to do a job and at the moment she isn’t doing that to a satisfactory level. We are paying her to teach us but she doesn’t seem to be able to do that. If it was any other job she wouldn’t even be there any more. So, I am taking matters to hand and will be speaking to the head of department this week.

Now, on to happier things. It’s only two more sleeps till my birthday!! I have decided that I am going to get some yummy chinese takeaway, my favourite lemon tarts from the bakery, a good DVD and an alcoholic beverage and then go home and enjoy turning 25.

Also, exactly 7 years after getting my first tattoo I have finally decided what my second will be. It’s going to be on my ribs, just below where my bra sits and it will say:

Braver. Stronger. Smarter.

Which is a shortened of the Winnie the Pooh quote:

Always remember, you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.

I absolutely love this line. It’s something I always remind myself of when I feel like I am not up to a task, so I think having it inked into my skin is the perfect way to keep that reminder. And I think this is what tattoos are really supposed to be about, it has taken me 7 years to figure out what I wanted but I know that this is absolutely perfect and, like my existing tattoo, I won’t be regretting it in another 7 years.

If you had to choose a quote or saying to have tattooed on you, what would it be?
