the art of trading

so since i have been home i have been raiding my sister's book shelf, and started reading Betrayed by p.c . and Kristin cast. apart from reading i have been on trips with my sister, and since she now has a car, its more fun. the weather has not been very nice recently..it always looks so gloomy, every day!! it is starting to be annoying! but even though the weather has not been great, it was so nice to see some countryside...i have missed it very much, while i have been living in the city. apart from that i have recently got really into artist trading cards. this is all down to lina, she is amazing! now i am not sure if what i have done is right, but i have just been playing around at the moment :) i need to learn more about how to trade with other people, which always sounds fun! these are a few i have made.i have also been giving this award by I carry your heart aka beverley and Sophia :) i now need to list 10 Honest things about myself: 1. I love the smell of really really old book...you know the ones with tons of dust on.
2. I hate the feel of sponges...yeah i know its really weird. although i am starting to get over my fear of them. i had to help clean our flat kitchen's floor the other day..and i had to use a sponge. haha.
3. Deep down inside of me I long to be an artist...and i know it is possible, but at this point in my life i am not sure.
4. I would rather drink fizzy pop than drink alcohol.
5. I LOVE the gameboy game Pokemon.
6. I keep wanting to cry when i think about David tennant leaving Doctor Who, even though i like Matt smith, who is going to replace him.
7. I want to go camping with friends, like they do in the movies...well maybe not like in horror movies..haha.
8. I want to run away and live in America..right now, without even telling anyone! although, lack of money is a major problem.
9. I wish to be on my 'old people's holiday' right now!
and 10. Right now i wish i was hanging out with my friends...who i miss so much at the moment.
i now tag.... Mandy, Suzannah, sara, Jess, Allison, Amy and charlotte

I am trying to resign myslef to the Tennant's demise by sticking up a poster of Matt Smith on my wall... even though I am quite happy he is going to Number Eleventh (his hair is so Doctorish as Steven The Moffat said), a tiny fractured part of my heart is finding it hard to reconcile to the Tennant's leaving the Tardis :(
