OK, so this isn’t a video I’m afraid, but I will be doing more of those!

Had a convo with a friend recently about how much I’ve changed. Here’s the thing, I’ve changed a lot, but only on the surface, underneath I’m still the same person I have always been.

I’ve still got that same lack of confidence I’ve always had, if you look closely you can spot it. I’ve just learnt to hide it the best I can in order to survive, you can’t seem to get anywhere without seeming confident any more :(

I’ve still got a completely irrational phobia of Bristol, I’m scared of falling asleep on the train back from Manchester and ending up at Bristol Temple Meads! I could actually think of nothing worse!

I still rely on people around me far too much. OK so I used to generally just rely on a single person, at least now I rely on lots of different people… but I like that, it’s nice to have people around you who you can rely on :-)

I still enjoy visiting various places around the country, the only difference is that now I don’t have my Fiesta to keep me company :-( Instead, I have to just deal with coach C, seat 52, which I think Crosscountry should just give in and name after me! I actually travel a hell of a lot more now than when I did have a car, though its been over a year since I’ve been to Wales… I think this needs to change!

Basically, I’m not Jeni 2.0, I’m Jeni 1.5… still the same but with lots of exciting new features!

Oh, and don’t forget… tomorrow is National Chocolate Cake Day!

Chocolate Cake Day

When : Always January 27th

Chocolate Cake Day is a a chocolate lovers delight, and a day to eat cake. Why this a day to “bake your chocolate cake….and eat it, too!”

On this day, a white or yellow cake will not do. Nor, will part chocolate, part white suffice. It must be chocolate, all chocolate. You can make milk chocolate, dark chocolate, fudge, or any other type of chocolate cake.

The only reference to Chocolate Day on the Internet is from Ecard and calendar websites. This might lead you to conclude that this as a day for(and by) the Ecard companies. But, we know better. This day is for you, and all chocolate lovers.

There are three objectives of Chocolate Cake Day: To bake a chocolate cake. To decorate a chocolate cake. And, to eat a chocolate cake. Of course, if you are to busy to bake or decorate a cake, then just eating a chocolate cake will certainly do!

Origin of Chocolate Cake Day:

Our extensive research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. Perhaps, it was baker. Perhaps, it was a food company. Most likely, it was a chocolate cake…eater!

Saturday Night

OK, so it’s Saturday night, and I’m sat at home listening to My Chemical Romance… so shoot me! I’m allowed a break once in a while! Long time no see, its been a bit busy I’m afraid.

Where am I these days? Still living in the same place, but moving up to that Manchester in 3 weeks, I am rather excited about this! It’s about time I finally upped and properly left the midlands. I’ve got so much planned, so many changes to make, and so many different varieties of chocolate fudge cake to try!

So what am I doing? Still making the web work, and making tills work, and I’m going to carry on doing this! I’ve had to cut down the social life quite a lot recently, its been killing me! Though I have one of those horrible feelings that once I move, I’ll be out all the time again! Still meeting lots of new people and making loads of new fabtastic friends (if you missed it, awesome is such a 2011 word, 2012 is for fabtasticness!)

I am going to miss everyone down here when I move, both new and old friends. I will still be back though, quite often as it turns out… all to do with work, so its kind of a win win situation!

Anyway, enough about me, here’s a bit more about me… I am going to put off having the op! I still don’t think I’ve properly explored the body I have now, I don’t *need* a bit of surgery to make me a woman – surgery is a rather large thing, and a lot can go wrong with it. I am much better off waiting, there is nothing to stop me having it in the future if I decide that is what I want.

This isn’t me saying that I want to go back to being a man… hell no, I could never do that! I think I’m just pretty happy where I am right now, and I want to go with the flow a bit and see where it takes me, putting things off by a few years is not going to hurt (unless they ban anaesthetics for this kind of thing… then it will hurt *lots*)

My opinions on life have changed, my definition of me has become a lot more fluid recently, I just need to take stock and make a new plan :-)

And on that bombshell…
