Staying Awake

Not as hard as it sounds really, but when you are in a room of girls aged 10-14, then it becomes a bit more interesting.

It was Children In Need last night, and our guide unit had decided to do a sponsered stay awake to raise money.
It basically involved us staying in the guide hut all night without anyone falling asleep. (Us being 2 Guide Leaders, 3 Young Leaders (including me), and around 20 Guides.)

The most difficult part was probably trying to stop them from sitting around doing nothing, which could have resulted in them falling asleep.

I had brought along with me, my 'suitcase' of make up, and about 2 dozen nail varnishes. These items, I hoped, would keep them at bay from the sandman.
It did, thankfully. Although I did get a bad back from hunching over to work my magic on their nails.

Overall the night was a success, and I am writing this now when i am meant to be asleep (according to my mother), even though I am not tired.... yet!

We managed to raise over £400 for the charity, even if some of the girls fell asleep just before 7 o'clock!

I don't know what has been wrong with me this past week. I haven't been bothered to do any of my work and I don't know why.

At the end of last week I had maths homework to do by Monday, and I didn't do it. I did have a reason though. I didn't take my textbook home and my mate took my book home to copy up.
I've also got 2 pieces of physics homework to do that have to be in by tomorrow, but i can't be bothered to do them either.

Today was a pretty good day though. I went to St Fagans, the National History Museum of Wales, but the reason had nothing to do with history. Thankfully.
It was to have some lectures on different types of music and they gave us tips on composition. I wasn't complaining though, it was a day off school.

Anyway... I never seem to have enough time to do anything, and I know that I should really use my free lessons to do my work because that's what they're for.

Ah well, I guess I'll do it later...
