I have a video chat thing with the new R&D centre today. Almost sure it's going to be an absolute farce.
Flying to Warsaw this evening. Got a few life admin address change things to sort today as I'm not at work. Also going to meet my parents as they're staying in the flat while we're away.
That would be radical.
I'm working today (i.e. playing at a military wedding) and then going to see Only God Forgives.
Should probably ring the agency and find a more regular job for the next few weeks. Fucking hate temping though.
as part of a small brass group, they basically want some incidental music as people go in and out.
also setting up a session of the civ board game which i'm very excited about
we're probabyl not going to find a date until late september. I WANT TO DO IT NOW
applying for a bunch more today. Find it quite hilarious how many rightmove student flats have "NO STUDENTS" in the description.
Seen an £88pw for a single bedroom in a 4 bedroom house on Ruthven Street which seems pretty ideal.
we could be neighbours! :)
Sadly I can't go to any viewings as I live in Nottingham, I am purely gambling at the moment. A roof and a bed for less than £110pw with bills in a student place is all I want at the moment. Couldn't give a shit about much else.
will hate me for being older and no fun
despite it being advertised up to last night with 2 rooms free. Jammy gits.
the search continues?!
If so, would that not be absolute torture? (I am presuming you are a grown up.) I'm sure you can do better than that for the price! Are you looking only in byres road area or would you consider anywhere that was handy for G-uni?
But I'm looking at shared places too, like 3-4 person places and have fired off a few requests here and there.
I'm basically fine with anything that's convenient for G-Uni.
built an absolute beast of a rollercoaster last night in RCT2.
Today we have a house inspection.
I salute you.
got 9.38 (Very High) excitement :D
or get me a screenshot, STAT
OK i will try to remember
Tonight I will study. And maybe keep building my deck in this card game thing. Then more study.
Shadow Era. I think there's a physical version but I'm playing it on android and in my web browser. My understanding is that it's a lot like Magic, but I've never played that so wouldn't really know.
i'm getting near the stage where I'll be tackling the endurance races. I don't want to do a 4 hour tskuba session, or an actual 24hr Le Man race :(
but i don't think i have that much dedication.
i mean, look at this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q8rK9TpbOw
You could on GT4, I used to send him off on his way then go and do other things instead.
ie a b-driver 24 race and an a-driver 24 hour race. Actually, two for each, one at Le Mans and other at Nurburgring. Fuck that.
Life really is too short.
For some reason I can't go to bed/sleep at a sensible time. How do normal people manage it? Only Paul McKenna can help.
Watched Breaking Bad with friends, really hard adjusting to only being able to watch an episode at a time. Didn't eat breakfast and consequently have eaten a third of my lunch already - the red onion in my sandwich is delicious.
I amused myself by eating frozen mars bars until I became really sleepy about 11ish, and then I just gave in and decided to go to sleep. so I actually managed to sleep before midnight last night. I might just not bother getting wifi. i think watching stuff and the internet keeps me up way too late.
The internet has essentially ruined all of our lives.
Frozen mars bars make you sleepy eh? I'll have to try this out.
The ideal would be bed at 12, turn off all screens and set alarm on iPhone at 11, grab a shower, read for 45-30 minutes.
Instad, I'm up at 1am scrolling through gifs on imgur and tweeting bullshit.
Forgot I've got a lunch and have gone all out 90s.
Just want to play drums to Air That I Breathe today.
Il'll know more after my costume fitting on monday, but I am thinking from the stage directions seen so far it's pretty porno.
It's only a small scottish low budget thing (series of three shorts. this is #2) but we should have funding to go featur elength at the end of the year. I play a salacious minister's wife.
are the directions like *hold cock with tricksy expression* then? Or is it a bit more implied :D
At one point I bend down to do something and <Benny drops his cymbal>. (it involves a band. he's not just carrying a cymbal about for no reason.)
she bent over and i completely dropped my cymbal.
Lots to do.
Going on holiday soon.
Lots and lots to do.
Am I the only one still hungover from the weekend? We played a gig Saturday night, my performance was pretty dire as I had felt anxious all day and it was a disaster. Sunday I went to a baby shower and I ended up blotto in the Joiner's Arms and stumbled into work late yesterday. Today I feel like I've been hit around the head with a shovel. Some good news though, I'm off to Germany with work which is nice.
Hope things are going well for you :)
Nice shiny new gearing. Can't wait to ride it tomorrow
I can't swim that well tho
I went to an adult development swim class and it helped SO much.
I can only do the frog one very slowly. I tried front crawl on Sunday and swallowed a massive amount of pool water :(
I was already an ok swimmer but it's helped so much; it's easy to get into bad habits if you don't have any feedback.
One thing that will get much better quickly regardless is the water-swallowing - the first few times when I started again I swallowed vast amounts and had to make some concerted efforts at not puking in the pool =/
^this to the bit about having instruction/lessons. Swimming is one of those things that if you want to be able to do as a relaxing pastime, you can't really teach yourself, as you'll never develop an efficient style that doesn't make it seem like a struggle. It'll just be little things (eg not letting your legs/backside drop when swimming breastroke), but unless you've got someone watching you and who can identify the flaws in your stroke, you'll end up getting knackered and flustered and not enjoying it.
(I didn't nearly puke in the pool)
I think my main problem is I'm not good so I get a bit bored. And I have to use a float to be able to kick about a bit and get somewhere (this seems a bit embarrassing for a 24 year old...)
I just like to know how to do the arms part of the swimming. I can do the legs good! I'll look into whether they do adult classes at my pool/gym :)
Told I wouldn't be getting a pay rise. Still forcing myself to apply for an internal role I know they don't want me to get. After carefully planning the internet handover for the new flat, it was cancelled without my permission and will now not be installed until two weeks after moving. Still have nearly everything to pack. Still have no boxes. No one has bought the furniture I've tried to sell. I have to park a van in an impossible place and load it on Saturday.
You are tearing me apart, Lisa.
but you'll blitz it all at once. get flat sorted. get online. then job hunt
trying to decide what to delete to make room for new stuff, and I glanced at 'Trouble Will Find Me', and I wondered which other National song those words reminded me of, right?
and then my iTunes, on shuffle (55,622 tracks), started playing 'Sorrow'. sorrow will find me, etc, etc.
how about that.
also I can't breathe very well and FUCK OFF WORK.
Still not over yesterday's horrific medical imagery incident.
incredible, wonderfully awful.
cock in hand, midstream. For some fucking reason the only door to our back garden is from the downstairs loo. He was outside having a smoke, but he didn't leave the downstairs loo light on or the back door open so i didn't know. Went in for a wee, he walked in the back door. Brilliant
which is kind of irritating, also tried a bourbon flavored beer last night, didn't really live up to the promise.
I'm not really a fan of hunting though, or conservatism.
I'm now going to waste an hour before lunch.
I just need to get some more fairylights (grantF managed to get my solar powered ones working!! but it has made me want more) and I'll be all GEARED UP.
I should probably book my train...
I am now ready for ALL OF the visitors.
i've decided I'm just going to look at pictures of penguins
Penguins doing what? I had a quick look. It didn't really hold my attention and I accidently saw penguins mating. So all in all, not a good time.
Weird feeling. I'd be selfish to feel a bit gutted, however I am a bit.
i thought the thread was being deleted or something. was looking for drama
Meatballs, sauce and cheese!
nor make up elaborate stories about stuff that i'm apparently doing in an effort to seek internet validation, but i do hope you all have a nice day.
you spent around three months making up elaborate stories.
Don't be so hard on yourself =(
living the dream.
