Joys of my crazy life

Hey Everyone

Well so far I’ve kept this up as I’m sure you’ve all discovered from my latest blog post anyway it’s back to reality for me of course I’m still working away just trying to keep on top of things and restraining myself from having a nervous breakdown you know the usual stuff.

I’ve been off line for a little bit purely because I’ve been coming up with new ideas for blog posts also I was meant to upload a blog post last night but my lovely cousin came round to spend some time with me and I’d not seen her for a while so unfortunately I forgot but that’s ok it happens to everyone I guess.

So far today I’ve managed to be fairly organised but I’ve got a lot on my mind at the moment I won’t go into too much but my sisters mum is basically on the way out as she’s got cancer and I’ve been very emotional recently because I really care about my sister and I want her to have lots of good times in her life and not be having to go through something like this.

I’m just hoping that when it does ‘happen’ that my sisters mum goes peacefully and that my sister doesn’t have to receive an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night saying that it’s ‘happened’ I know we’ll get through it’s just the wondering and waiting that’s the awful part for myself and for my sister.

Anyway let’s not dwell on that too much otherwise I’ll have to stop typing and come back to this post instead another thing that’s happening on a more positive note is I’m going to be twenty one in May which is very exciting but also very scary at the same time because I really want it to go well I’m sure it will but you never know with these things especially where families concerned.

I’m looking forward to it and my sister’s going to come which is nice also my aunt and uncle on my sister’s side will be coming as well so it’ll be nice to see them and catch up on everyones news of course because nowadays everyone get’s so caught up in things that no-one has time to actually pick up the phone and talk to people plus mostly every things online which is good for myself obviously but not for everyone.

Anyway that’s what’s been happening so far in my crazy life,




Still Blogging Away and Les Miserables Movie


Hey Everyone,

Well so far I’ve not done too badly with posting my blog entries so I’m very pleased with myself at least I’ve managed to maintain one of my new years resolutions, sadly on the walking front it’s kind of died off really not too much I mean I still like to go walking because it’s a nice break from writing blog entries.

Oh well at least the blog entry resolution has lasted it’s not been that easy though with the recent heavy snow my posting wained because I just didn’t feel I had anything interesting to say but at least that’s picked up as you can see from my latest blog entry.

Anyway enough of that I went to see the new Les Miserables movie at the cinema with two of my friends I have to say it was amazing I don’t normally say that about a lot of films but it really was amazing, the music for a start was just beautiful and the singing was good as well despite the fact very few of the actors in the film were trained singers.

The really cheesy thing was that I just could not stop crying and then my two friends started crying especially at the end of the film it was so sad (I won’t spoil the ending for you in case you haven’t seen it) but film fans who have will know exactly what I’m talking about.

It was nice to get out for a change and not just be stuck in I think that’s the effect of January it makes people and myself not really want to go out a lot unlike the summer when everyone seems to appear, that really amazes me suddenly thousands of people appear it makes me wonder where they all go when it’s winter.

I’m actually hoping to see a couple of friends that I haven’t seen for ages on Friday night even if we don’t go out it will still be lovely to see them as I haven’t been able to contact them for ages so it will be nice to catch up on what’s been happening with them.

I’ll be posting more entries very soon in the meantime keep following me on Twitter or follow me on Twitter to find out when the next blog entries going to be posted I’ll be tweeting about this one once I’ve posted it.




Meeting Irritations

Hey Everyone!!

Well I’ve kept up my promise to upload another blog post so fingers crossed I won’t forget and my blog posts don’t get uploaded, anyway the other day I was having a short meeting well I say meeting it was more of an informal discussion with a lecturer who shall remain nameless at my university where I’m studying my degree.

So it starts off fairly well and they seem to be grasping my second idea for my final portfolio which is to create a book publicity campaign for a fictional story that I had written and re-adjusted for a writing course that I did a few years ago.

Anyway I was clearly explaining to them how I was going to construct the idea and that I would like to explore the process of how publishers market books towards their target audiences.

At first they seemed to be on board with the idea but then they started talking about me making a documentary about the process of marketing a book but then of course I said that due to the equipment lenders being very difficult and restrictive about taking out cameras and returning them also the fact you have to rely on others to make sure the project is put together correctly, moreover the fact when you do have a problem with a larger project you often have to wait a long time for your course leader to reply to your email.

These factors combined would cause me unnecessary stress and anxiety as I clearly explained to them but they didn’t seem to take that on board even though I had explained to them that I wanted to put something into my portfolio or something that would contribute towards my portfolio that wouldn’t cause me unnecessary pressure, and that I would have a safety net in case there was a problem whether it was a general one or something more specifically related to the project.

It was just so frustrating because they didn’t seem to take anything that I was trying to say to them on board or even into consideration and the ironic thing was they said towards the end of the conversation (you can tell I’m getting bored of talking about this) they said I didn’t need to worry or get anxious because they were ‘here’ and that they understood because they’d read about me oh that’s great I feel so assured I’m a case study now am I?

That makes me feel so much better, I’m going to put the project together the way I want to anyway because I came up with the idea and there’s going to a lot more to it than just putting together a website and that’s it, because once I’ve started they’ll be a lot more going into the project.

Anyway I think to be on the safe side I might ask one of my friends to assist in helping me put together the project they wouldn’t have to do a lot just have a look at what I’d put together and say if I needed to make any improvements a bit like a marketing assistant if you will.

Hopefully that should prevent any interference from my lecturer but I’ll have to pick someone who doesn’t buy into all the crap that my lecturer always comes out with, plus they’ve got this really annoying habit of answering peoples queries with another question and I never really noticed that until yesterday.

In return I would help them with paperwork or marketing materials for their project so they wouldn’t just be doing me a favour I’d be helping them out as well.

I’ll have to get back to you once I’ve completed the project but hopefully I’ll remember to post another blog entry if I don’t forget of course.





New Year, Blogging Away.

Hey Everyone!!

Well it’s official 2013 has arrived which is very exciting of course everyones made their new years resolutions and hopefully going to keep them (well some of them) anyway I spent christmas with family of course it was nice to spend time with them and catch up on everyones news the most exciting being the my cousin’s wife is going to have another baby in May!! They’ve already got a daughter together so I’m thinking the next ones probably going to be a boy it’s still very exciting stuff though.

New year was pretty quiet as I just had a couple of people over and we had some nice food and we chatted it was lovely to catch up with everyone as well plus having a couple of glasses of champagne helped the conversations keep flowing.

I posted my first tweet of the new year today having been off line for ages particularly over the christmas and new year period I’ve got some more ideas for posts now all I have to do is try and remember to write them down if I forget then I know they won’t get posted.

This is also my first new blog post of the new year as well which is very exciting of course but it’s kind of scary as I’m not sure whether I’m going to have more people reading my blog but I’ve got a few readers already which is amazing and it means I don’t have to just rely on people that I know reading my blog posts.

Hopefully I’ll remember to upload some more blog posts.
