Laziness, Fire, etc.

So I haven't updated this in quite a long while, and its not even like I have a good excuse for it!

Pretty much all I've been doing since finishing for the summer is playing on my computer and Xbox360, and seeing my girlfriend!

I've been playing a whole lot of Fifa 11 Ultimate Team, as well as Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 with friends, on top of that I've been playing little bits of L.A. Noire (Fantastic game, although I didn't like the ending, just didn't feel that well thought through), and various games my girlfriend borrows me from her shop.

I recently got a Kinect as well, and the UFC personal trainer game for it - it's actually quite good and it feels good to actually work out since I don't really have the confidence to go to a gym or anything on my own I can do it in my room.

Went to a friend's house yesterday to celebrate his birthday, and had a lot of fun playing football and building a fire in his back garden, sitting around it drinking all night and laughing at how drunk he was! It was good fun all round, although a friend's dad got knocked off his bike so he had to leave to go see him - he's stable in hospital now but was pretty badly knocked up so I hope he recovers okay!

Anyway after that brief ramble, I'll call it a day and hopefully update this when something interesting happens in my life (which could be a while...)

So I'm done with University for the summer, now to look forward to a couple of months worth of doing very little - although hopefully I'll be able to find a job to help finance the pursuit of procrastination.

Its frustrating lacking the experience and references to find even a part-time sales job, and being somewhat lacking in social skills also hinders my chances, woo!

Looking back I'm going to miss this year, it was a great experience living in halls and being able to hang out with people from my course with ease, next year we're going to be living pretty far from one another so it will be interesting to see how that pans out in terms of out-of-class activities such as drinking, and skating.

Yeah kind of rambling there, but whatever. On an unrelated note I played the Duke Nukem Forever demo today, it's pretty good! Not sure whether I'm going to buy the game at full price as my bank balance isn't looking healthy, but I'm sure I'll play it at some point

First year drawing to a close

Wow, only a couple of weeks til my first year of University is over

Its been fun and I'm looking forward to continuing next year, just got to get an exam and some coursework out the way

Just got back to Uni after 3 weeks off for Easter, its been good living at home and seeing friends more often over the holidays, missed just going to the pub with them haha.

Hadn't made a post in a while so figured I'd just put this, anyway hope everyone is okay :)

Back to work

Back from Wales, and back to University.

It was a perfect weekend away with my girlfriend to be honest. It didn't rain too much, we went to the zoo, explored a little and just relaxed together. We also went to see the film 'Suckerpunch'. I thought it was really good, enjoyed the transitions between realities.

Birthday itself was good as well, went for a meal with the family and went to the pub with a few friends, nice and chilled.

Now I have to do 1200 words (Not that much really. Don't know why I'm stressing) about Crossfeed in headphones for Thursday, and I don't really have much to go on, not to mention much motivation to jump back into work.

Better get on with it though!

Looking forward to the weekend...

The weekend is almost here, only have one lesson tomorrow morning and then on Saturday I'm going away for a few days with my girlfriend, because its my birthday on Monday.

It should be good, for how long we've been together we haven't been away anywhere (other than festivals) alone. Birthday should be good as well, although I haven't got a clue what I'm going to get.

Had band practise tonight, it was fun and we made some progress, still need to write some songs instead of just coving songs though!

Anyway probably won't update until next week, have a good weekend everyone!

Work, work, work.

Cannot believe this year has gone so fast, and I only have 1 weeks worth of lectures left! It feels like its flown by, but its been a great year all in all.

Still got plenty of work to complete as well, although the deadline for most of it is in May so I have plenty of time.

Went skating yesterday for an hour or so and then went to pub, was fun to get out even though the weather has took a turn for the worse, its hard to skateboard in the rain!

Guess thats enough rambling for one pointless blog post, I'm out. Gotta go to lesson anyway.

First post!

So I made a blog, woo!

Studying first year of BSc Music Technology at Birmingham City University, and its flew by so far! I can't believe its almost over. Got a lot of work to do, which I will undoubtedly leave until fairly late.

Anyway yeah, Might update this fairly regular etc :)
