Feeling I should post…


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

This post was published more than 15 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 15 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 15 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  • Factual information might be outdated.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...

Given that I haven’t posted in several weeks, I know how terribly worried you’ll all be for not knowing what’s happening in my all-action exciting superlife.

Well, I finished the uni year and passed (hoorah). My house for next year is just being finished off (according to an email from the letting company, it already is finished but they are just making it ‘lovely’). And I’m at home doing very little.

The theory goes that I should get a summer job, so that I earn money to fund next year. But I really can’t be bothered. However crap an excuse that is, and however much I’m being nagged to get a job by mum/dad/friends, I’ve avoided it successfully so far. Which means lots of lie-ins.

I’m spending my days typing up all of my notes from the first year… nearly 200 pages so far. I’m also apparently viewed as the family taxi service, and so am running people around everywhere. And doing occassional bits of housework. So, to summarise, I’m not really doing anything. Except watching Big Brother. And it’s SO good to have a proper rest.

I have a trip to London planned for next month, and I might be planning one to Stockton to see my new house at some point. I may also be forced to earn some money at some point (maybe JRC will just pay me for, erm, “services rendered”)

So that’s what’s happening at the moment.

By the way… All the Gmail invites have gone now! Better luck next time!
