 Just got home from my cousin's 21st (she was one of my two best friends growing up) and it was a pretty good party! I got to spend it with my other childhood best friend - great to catch up. It's her 21st tomorrow night, so the roles will be reversed a little.

It was a famous-musician themed party, so I went as Lily Allen, mostly because I look a little similar and her clothes are easy to imitate. I'll try to remember to post a photo because a couple of people wanted to see!

I'm going to dye my hair darker tomorrow - mostly because I am going as Bellatrix Lestrange to the midnight release of the last Harry Potter movie - but it might be nice for a change so I'll do it before the party tomorrow night =D

It was actually really good to catch E up with my love life (or lack thereof) as I really haven't spoken to her properly since everything with D happened. So many people we know who are our age are getting married and it kind of freaks us out. She's in a long-term, serious relationship and her bf is much more serious about everything than she is. It makes me laugh, she's told him that he's not even allowed to ask her to marry him until she's 23 XD
Her observation about my love life that the guys who would suit me will always be too shy to approach me was pretty accurate I think. Damn it. *laughs* Guess I'll just have to suddenly get brave somehow... 

This past week has been pretty awesome, I must say. Staying up late, sleeping in, no work, heaps of shopping (most of my birthday money is gone) and just chilling. It's been good - but now I'm ready to go out and do things again. Bring on the socialising :D

Up next in the life of Lauren: HP midnight session with a fair few friends, staying over at snuggle_monster's at some point, back to work, practice, and a couple more parties. Possibly. Ooh and investing in a viola and teaching myself to play properly.

Night all!

Oooh dark hair, what fun!! YAY Bellatrix Lestrange! She's such a badass character, LOL. :3

A viola! Yes indeed, good investment. Violas = <3.

ikr? and so totally NOT me. Which is why it's fun! XD XD XD
(yes, the irony amuses me and is part of the reason why I chose her - the other part being that it was a challenge)

Thought you'd approve of that :P

Ahh release party!! I only ever went to one (for Book 7) and I didn't dress up. :P Should be fun!

I've talked to several friends in the past two weeks about how all our friends are about to start getting married soon. (I think I'm about a year behind you?) I'm scared and I don't know why but just...eek. So yeah, I (almost) feel your pain, haha.

Heh well it's not a party per se, just a showing, but we'll make it a party. We're dressing up because we can :D

It's so weird because my love life is just so nonexistant at this point - so marriage is a far far removed idea for me at age 21. XD

Oh no that's what I meant...my impression is that the midnight showings basically are parties (I think you said you're going at midnight).

Yeah, same. The vast majority of my friends are not in serious relationships right now, so it's hard to picture.

Ahahahah oh I see! Still not the case in Aus, they're just showings but they're fun because almost everyone in the cinema are massive fans of whatever show it is - so it's loud and reactive. I've only ever been to one and I can't wait for Tuesday :D
