just got back from lourdes on friday, and i have to say that the thing i missed the most was my own bed!
we traveled by coach for two days! no stop! so yes that meant sleeping upright in our seats. it is definately going to take a while to get those kinks out my back.

it was such an amazing experience though. i went last year, so i knew what it was like anyway, but it just gets better the second time around, so i'm definately going to sign up for a third year.

it's really funny when i tell people about it because everyone expects it to be a deadly religious experience where we all go around furiously studying bibles and quaking in front of the grotto while we pray, but no! it is one of the best places ever for some good craic, (might want to look that up on urban dictionary).

it is literally one of the best places for meeting new people. we all go out for a drink on the evenings and there are people from allll over the world at the bars and pubs. i may have been returning to the hotels a little bit wasted, but the priests who lead the pilgrimage and look after us, know that we are young and a little bit irresponsible, so as long as we are still coherent they don't mind :P 

don't worry though, we didn't just completely miss the religious experience because of being drunk or hung over.
the services and masses were beautiful, and you can really see how much of a difference you are making to someones life.
because this isn't a random religious holiday for us youth to have fun on. the actual people it is concentrated on are the elderly pilgrims with various ailments and disabilities, or sometimes just old age, and us the youth are supporting them on their pilgrimage. we wheel them about in their wheel chairs, bring them tea and coffee help them dress undress go to the places they want to, and sometimes we just sit and talk to them, because these are the people who normally, when they are at home sit alone most of the time and don't have many visitors, so we are really making a difference in their life, and it makes you feel so worthwhile for just being helpful.

so yeah it was a really good experience and me and all our friends brought back loads of hilariously cheesy religious tat. (there are grotto scenes with fountains and multicoloured flashing lights, and even giant, and i mean giant, glow in the dark rosary beads) so i would recommend going if you are religious and even if you are not, because loads of the youth who went with us don't even give a flying fuck about the religious aspects, just the social and "helping people" experiences.

so yeah, i've had a really good start to the holidays, and i would love it if anyone who bothers to read my silly post wanted to tell me about theirs :))))))

Do you think celebrities deserve as much recognition, attention, and money as we, as a society, give them? What do you think it says about our cultural values?

when i blatantly pay homage to the god of fame

i really h8 that programme, and it pisses me off that people say that my generation is the skins generation.

not all teenagers go around smoking, drinking, sexing and off our tits all day everyday.
it is just massively unrealistic, and full of a load of rediculously stupid and slaggy characters

*phew* i'm glad i got that of my chest :P

now if people want toknow what teenage life is really like watch this as it is so much more realistic about sixth form/college (in england anyway) plus it is hilarious :)
