I thought this was one of those nice, fun reads. Quite enjoyed it but I prefer Sophie’s other works more.

A really biased view on living in university accommodation.

It has really NOT been a great experience for me so far…

1. Even though we have a bin rota….hardly any flatmate sticks to it. So far we have been issued with warnings about being fined for excess rubbish unless it is cleared within 24 hours. And it is me who has had to take 5 trips back and forth to the bins.

2. Flatmate on Skype until approximately 5am. Laughing so loud and singing Beyoncé at the top of their lungs.  They do not consider how thin the walls are.

3. At first it was food being stolen, then it was pots, pans, and cutlery. Thought my beloved green bowl was safe – but oh no, it has been taken and I’ll never see again.The suspected culprit dodging the hundred flat meetings that have been called and not facing any consequences. Finally attends a meeting and accuses everyone of stealing her milk?!

4. From 5 o’clock today there has been a constant, ear piercing beeping sound coming from the boiler room. It is directly outside my room so it is extra loud. I phone the tutor, she comes over and before she gets here, it stops – so typical. Nothing to be done today, will have to wait till tomorrow. It is so loud and annoying it will actually prevent me from going to sleep. It’s kind of given me a headache.

Placebo @ O2 Apollo Manchester ~ 16th December 2013

Placebo @ O2 Apollo Manchester ~ 16th December 2013

My first Placebo gig was on Saturday 14th December 2013 at O2 Apollo Manchester.

Lucky me and Charlotte got in as the tickets didn’t even arrive! (Had to pick them up at the Box Office)

TOY was the support band. They were ok – that is all I can say.

It was such a surreal experience, when Placebo walked on to B3! WOW!

When Brian introduced the band with “Ladies and gentlemen, and those of you who find yourself in between – we are Placebo” XD haha

I was so excited, the set list was fantastic – such a mix of new and old songs. Amazing encore!

Only downside was being seated quite far from the stage. So many people kept standing up to go and get drinks or go to the toilet – causing a mexican wave, which blocked the view!

I hope this isn’t the last time I see them live! One of my all time favourite bands. ^^
