Well, as previously announced, my blogs are becoming less frequent but hopefully more interesting. So, what have I been doing this week? Monday I was in town for a driving lesson, and while there met up with Jo, who was in 6th year when I was in 5th year, and will be in 2nd year at St. Andrews when I’m in 1st year (assuming I passed biology, blah blah. If I don’t, I’ll be mightily annoyed. But I think I did. But if you’ve spoken to me recently, you’ll have heard all of this before. When one doesn’t have much else to do, one ends up dwelling on things like upcoming exam results). Anyway, it was nice to see Jo again, she seems to be fine enough. I also ended up back at the hostel (which was where I saw Jo), and it was a bit strange/funny as I had to be signed into the building with a visitor’s badge of course… the place doesn’t seem to have changed that much though (in a whole two weeks), a few new faces but otherwise more or less the same. Time for a new paragraph I think.
Ah, that’s better. My previous blog entry, “Prom”, has been popular with commentators… mainly myself and a certain Dutchman who has gone rather wacko, but oh well. On Tuesday and Wednesday, I didn’t really do that much – got TTDAlter 4.3 a bit closer to release status, but not a lot else, IIRC. Now then, yesterday, Thursday, was the Young Enterprise meal and so on, and it was quite good. We spent a few hours at the Foveran, and, while expensive, it was enjoyable, and we then went onto a couple of other establishments and had fun there… well, some of us, grumble grumble, but anyway. Stayed at Ken‘s for the night, and had a right good fry-up for brunch, accompanied by a hand-picked selection of the finest “Cooking Music” one could wish to cook to! An enjoyable couple of days anyway. 🙂
I’ve decided, to help pass the time between now and September to a point, I’ve noted down a few key dates when known events are occuring, and will use these as ‘signposts’ to help pass the time, in a way. It seems to make sense in my head, anyway. Did you know it’s 8 days until the Stronsay Gala, 15 days until the North Isles Sports, 29 days until my 18th birthday (wootage), 60 days until the exam results come out, 99 days until the start of uni (Freshers week) and 108 days until the start of teaching at uni? By progressively working my way towards a certain target, it helps lower the time until the next event. For example, after the North Isles Sports, it’ll be 14 days until my birthday, and after my birthday, it’ll be 31 days until the exam result come out – breaking things down into more managable chunks. I’ve still got to find something to do in those times between events, of course… anyone got any web work they want doing for instance?
Well, that’s your 553 words* for today, enjoy them, and look after them. I want them back in one piece.
