Well not too much has happened to me recently, nothing note worthy anyway. I’m finding twitter and actual conversation with people is filling the gap that blogging/venting actually used to. I have my ups and downs, as many people do, but i just find that I am only complaining about the same problems over and over because nothing is changing so i just stopped, complaining. A problem shared is a problem halved but it doesn’t make a difference.
Doing loads of group assignments in Uni at the moment and I had a run in with a mate of mine about it. I got a phone call from him last Monday (when the snow was quite bad) saying that the lecturer had been snowed in and if i wanted to come into Uni we could do some group work. He’d not come in for the last 2 meetings but then again, i was the only one in for those as well; for a group of 4, it’s pretty damn shocking. So i phone up my friend who’s pregnant and let her know we are heading in to do work so she gets up and gets ready but will be a bit late. Nee bother, we can do the work while we’re waiting. I fight my way through the snow, the blizzard, i was like an artic explorer trying to get to the north pole!
I managed to get to uni just after 11 and was grateful for the rest as i’d nearly died* several time. I was greeted at the front door by my mate and some of the other students. They were in the middle of a conversation about whether the rest of our lectures were on this afternoon. When we found out they weren’t my mate proceeded to tell me he was leaving with the other students to go to the Trafford Centre.
WHAT THE FUCK???!!!??? Seriously?
I’m on the phone to my pregnant friend at the time while my mate leaves and i let her know what’s going on. I’m in complete shock as this guy is walking out. We’ve both had a go at him over the last week as it was completely out of order. I guess that’s just the way some people are though. I’ve been warned about having him in my group as he’s known to do shit like this all the time.
Moving on, Valentines day is next Saturday and I have the night off…not that I have anything to do. Someone wanted to swap and have the next day off so now i have Valentines day night (i guess) off and no girlfriend to share it with. Gonna see if some of the lads want to have a night on the pull…but with like 3 single friends (and they are single for a reason) i don’t know how successful it’s going to be.
The big thing i’ve noticed this year is that nearly everyone i know is using moonpig to send valentines day cards. Seems like it’s the new fad that’s going around. Seems like they have cracked a niche market but with the snow recently i’ve heard the post has been slightly delayed so i don’t know if everyone will be getting their cards on time.
Anyways, that’s all for now, peace out homies!!
