A Week in My Life: Saturday

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 14 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 14 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

The headline totals for this Saturday are: I spent eight-and-a-half hours sleeping, seven hours working, four hours watching TV, and four hours surfing. Eek, I wouldn’t have said I’d spent that long on the computer today – surprised I haven’t got a headache or something! Tomorrow, I hope, will be a more relaxing day, I just wanted to blast the Community Placement today. Or yesterday technically, I suppose, since we’ve passed midnight. Oh, the confusion.
