what are you guys doing?
I'm happy with that decision.
Dunno what to do with myself now though.
So I'm off to the V&A to see some talks. Then hopefully fit in a run later before This Is England and probably round it off in the usual way with Sunday dread induced insomnia!
Back in until 6.30 this eve. Ah well, it's only the weekend. In London next weekend which I'm sort of looking to
Then I'm gonna stay work on a big horrible tender and then I'm working later at the emirates
New regime needed :'(
saw a wild boar!
gonna go to the kirtag later, probably will drink a beer
then i'm gonna bake cookies and make enchiladas for tea and watch tatort on tv
to get ready for a lesson i have to plan and teach on thursday.
also need to do some written work for submission but it's stuff i'm relatively happy writing so it's no biggie.
also hungover. eating bacon and drinking coffee to banish that. might have friends over for dinner this evening, if not i'll go round to my mum and dad's. love sundays tbh.
I got too prossexy last night. (Prosecco sexy)
I threw up ok the train before it pulled out of leeds. Classy.
already been for a run today, not really sure what to do this eve
might just take my book to the pub
everyone says it's easy so I must be really thick cos I've struggled quite a bit when practising/learning all the stuff. think I will pass now if there aren't loads of niche questions. if I don't, I'll just blame my parents for not driving on motorways.
Essentially then you more or less just had to memorise the signs and braking distances and the rest was common sense ("A pedestrian steps out into the road in front of you. Do you a) brake, b) accelerate, c) eat an apple?").
That hazard perception seems way harder than actual driving.
Is that the same points are repeated in multiple questions in the possible question pool, e.g. the stuff about how to deal with someone who's in shock. So learning that stuff once actually covers a relatively large chunk of the syllabus.
Hazard perception is shite though, it's almost pot luck.
and then doing really well in the real thing. just like my maths gcse.
was about 8 years though so idk
literally nothing noteworthy other than I was in control of a car. Don't think I'll ever be test ready :(
more just a dont feel thick cause I feel a bit thick about it but I'm pretty sure it's just anxiety.
Went to the Emirates today to watch the Davis Cup tennis. Good stuff. Now about to take much needed nap on the sofa.
I'm not getting home before midnight.
It's still going, it'd take me a couple of hours to get home from and I start the new job tomorrow.
Just going to sit here being quietly smug for a change.
gonna go for a walk in the rain to see if i can get rid of it
it's car free day today so public transport was free and there was a giant waterslide down my street. found some really old copies of sight and sound from the 60s. gonna send one to my friend in the post. started writing my phd proposal. made my own dim sum for the first time. turned out pretty well and I have leftovers for my packed lunch.
now got the sunday night dread, putting off doing my homework for my french class tomorrow morning. this week is gonna be really hectic at work and I have to be finished all my work by labour party conference. gonna be in London on Friday night if anyone fancies hanging out.
and bought a poke of chips with tartare sauce on the way back from the supermarket. and had a chocolate waffle for breakfast. if I die it's been worth it.
Had my 30th birthday party last night. Was sick in the pub, sick in a kebab shop, sick in a bowl by my bed. Today I watched 2 Danny Dyer films, a Steven Seagal movie, most of A Touch Of Cloth and some of Scary Movie 5 but I turned that off. Got a Chinese takeaway too. Bloody lovely (apart from the sick)
That's a lot of puking! :)
It's actually tomorrow but who wants a birthday on a Monday eh
with John Waters giving the introduction himself. (As a sad old fanboy, that was fun.) I'm now at my usual Camden pub killing my liver.
