Or more specifically â€“ the never ending list of things to do that seems to dictate my life more than I do.
Over the last 3 months, Iâ€™ve watched said list grow and grow as my department shoved more and more assignment deadlines towards me, and watched the things I really want to do get moved gradually towards the bottom. This term has been a rather bumpy ride in terms of deadlines, assignments and exams â€“ and Iâ€™m told itâ€™s downhill from here! Iâ€™ll write some follow up posts soon showing off what Iâ€™ve achieved in creating recently (Iâ€™m actually proud of some of it!).
The happiest moment of my life occurred last week, when said list of â€˜essentialsâ€™ finally reached zero, when the final assignment had been sent to the abyss that is known as â€˜DUOâ€™, and the end of term benchtest was over. Iâ€™m told that after spending a night out marking this occasion, I was heard celebrating in my roomâ€¦ Which involves me yelling a lot, before your minds jumped elsewhere!
Anyway â€“ I get home, having promised myself a fortnight to enjoy Christmas before getting stuck down to work, and I find myself unable to even get started on that list of â€˜want to doâ€™ items. Congratulations to the CompSci department â€“ theyâ€™ve killed my work ethic even for things that I enjoy!
â€¦ back in 3 weeks!
Heading out tomorrow morning (at the airport for 5am :â€™-[) to fly to Pisa, couple of days getting used to the weather then travelling down the coast to Rome by whatever means possible, hopefully achieving our Explorer Belt!
Iâ€™m going to try and keep a diary of what we do each day, then post on here when I get back. However we may end up too lost/drunk/dead to actually bother writing!
Anyway â€“ see you all in 3 weeks!
P.S. Twit2MSN V1.3 now released â€“ should appear in the database some time whilst Iâ€™m away!
Right now, I have 26 hours until my next exam (Computing CP4), yet I am sat blog posting! What a mistake-a to make-a!
Anyway, I’ve now done 5 exams, and have another 8 left to go. Only 13 days left though! They do like to cram these exams into a nice small space of time!
Since I’ve finished school, I’ve discovered PKR – a 3D poker game that you play from your computer over t’internet against other people. It’s quite addictive – and a very good waste of time! I came 112th out of 400 in a tournament last night, went all-in on a pair of Kings, the other bastard had a pair of Aces -.- Will be back in the tournament tonight, going to beat last nights record!
I’ve also discovered some more stuff, which I’ll post about later today.
Right, who wants a game of Monopoly?!
I’ve been busy.
Monday brought a Music Tech day, with people from Huddersfield Uni coming in to talk to us about their course basically. Then some practical workshops, which were a bit useful, but not very! Could have spent the day better by doing my coursework. Which brings me on to…
Tuesday. Tech coursework. Managed to get Task 5 pretty much complete, but I bet that Slim MT will butcher it tomorrow! Did some more work on my Task 1 (multitrack), trying to get vocals to sound good. Don’t think that’ll happen! Came home and did some Maths work, what fun!
Wednesday (Tomorrow/Today). Tech coursework. Hopefully will get Task 1 and 3 complete, and then work on 4. Fingers crossed I may finish the coursework part of the course! Probably some Maths/Computing when I get back.
Thursday. Driving lesson + maybe cinema in the afternoon (if I can afford it!). Need to try and get a hair cut as well!
Friday. All day Computing/Maths/Physics.
Saturday. Some sort of Network workshop. No idea what it is, but its region-organised – so probably a load of bollocks. Hopefully will end up in a pub though!
Sunday. Cheshire Hike base with McNetwork. Going to be a fun day – that’ll definitely end up in a pub!
Monday. In school for Computing probably.
And then its back to school
And it snowed. Wooop.
Tell you what, I would have much rather been at Network Gathering!
Sorry this post is a bit late, didn’t get round to it until today, reasons will follow!
To sunny Skegness. Woop. (Note the sarcasm)
I’m being driven off to lovely skeggy for a week, returning next Saturday afternoon. Gale force winds and extremely low temperatures forecast, along with snow. Should be fun… ish!
I shall write and tell you all about it when I get back… if I’m not blown into the North sea!
You’ve not heard a lot from me recently, because I’ve been waaaay too busy for you all 😀
I’ve just got this "Windows Live Writer" thingy… and thought I’d test it out on here!
Just to keep you all up to date, I’m back from Jambo, back from Summer camp, and back to school!
School seems rather depressing, since I still have the same amount of frees as last year, and still got all the bad teachers. Lovely.
Anywho, FsPortal is progressing well, over 90% completed at the moment, and I’m aiming to get it released this side of Christmas ;o
Thats enough excitement for now… catch you later!
Well, off I trot to group camp again this weekend.
Fortunatly, some of the network members are there as well – so I’m not on my todd all weekend!
I will be back Sunday afternoon, and am leaving at 3.30pm today (crap… thats in less than an hour!)
See you all soon!
