Day 280 - I'm still alive!

Well this is the biggest fail in the year since I skipped a weekend. I skipped a long weekend, but I did finish work and I wanted to full enjoy some days without doing anything at all. Not that anyone reads this, not like anyone was let down by me not posting anyway haha.

I can't remember if I even posted this but my last day went really well, everyone was nice and I got to leave early. Then I spent the weekend doing nothing, and I mean nothing, because I've had no god damn internet!

I'm back home right now seeing some family, and the internet haha. Decided to watch some It's Alwas Sunny in Philly, got shown it a few weeks ago and both me and Johnny loved it straight away, can't wait to watch some more tonight, fed up of watching the same shit on my laptop over and over.

I want to say that I'll start blogging properly again when I'm back home and I have a decent internet connection but it still could balls up knowing me. But we'll see, I'll try and keep in top of it.

Day 276 - One day to go.

Today was my second to last day at work, people have started to say bye and I've cleaned up my desk, I want to tell you it'll be emotional when I leave but I can't wait to get home and sleep for as long as I want, it's going to be awesome up until I remember I have no internet and I get bored of staying in the house all the time but it'll be awesome for the first few days at least.

Went to see Guardians of the Galaxy last night and it was awesome! Marvel really stepped it up for comic book films, they didn't go down the usual comic book movie path and made it a little more light hearted. Plenty of jokes, which some people think is a little lame but I thought it was great. A big break for Chris Pratt as well, he nailed it and I'm sure he'll be turning up in lots of other movies soon. If you've not seen it, go see it!

After the movie me and Johnny mooched over to Dan and Harry's house, first time I've been over to theirs and it's a nice house. We had some beers and listened to some music with them. Got pretty late by the time I got home and I thought t was going to be hell getting up in the morning but I was totally fine. 4 hours sleep and I did a full day without moaning, not bad!

Johnny has band tonight but I think when he is back we'll try fit in a few beers before we bed it, he leaves in the morning for Ireland. But then I get Terri back for the weekend and I'm going to finally try and make a curry. Should probably look into a little more before I buy anything, but everything should hopefully turn out fine.

Last day tomorrow, let's hope it's an easy last day!

Day 275 - Guardians Of The Galaxy tonight

Thought I'd get this post out the way early so I don't forget. I am super busy at work today, plus I'll be super busy tonight, so it is for the best that I remembered to blog during my lunch break, rather than at 11PM tonight when I realised that I'd forgotten to blog. So here we go.

I'm actually going to make use of the "schedule" tool on blogger and get it to post later on today, around 5/6PM is my usual post time*. It is a little annoying I have to use PST time and I can't use GMT though. 

*when I don't forget

Yeah, it has actually been pretty busy at work today, everything in general has died down though. At least one day a week everything seems to go wrong and I have to run around the entire campus to make sure everything is back on its feet, but it is nice to have something to do during the day. I just hope it doesn't keep me late, planning on leaving a little earlier tonight so I'm not late for the cinema.

Like I mentioned yesterday I'm meeting up with Johnny, Danny and Dan at the cinema to watch Guardians of the Galaxy, Johnny has seem it already and has said it's a great film. Really hoping we don't fall into the trap of getting a few drinks after we've seen it, really don't fancy waking up at 8AM with a hangover and then having a full days work. Me and Johnny were originally planning on going over to see Harry and Dan at their place to have some drinks, but we thought we'd be sensible and save it for the weekend...well hopefully we can keep to that anyway. I know me and Johnny, one word involving "town" or "drink" could throw us down the nasty but fun path of going out and getting stupidly drunk. Wish us luck tonight.

Two more days left in front of this computer. It is going to be strange when I have nothing to do during the week, hopefully I can find plenty to do. I say that, I know what I really need to do, and that is focus on my final year project, I have a stack of books waiting to be read. I'm sure I'll be able to get through them before the real work starts in September. Shit, that is next month...

Day 274 - Slowly picking up classical guitar

So I didn't blog at work, it has been pretty busy and I did want to run off as soon as I could so I could be at home with a cuppa, that'll all change soon as this week is over. I'll still be drinking tea but I won't have to wait until 5pm to have one, which is an amazing thought right now.

Starting to have a pretty decent plan for the rest of this week as I slowly come back I to student mode. Tomorrow Johnny is back for a few days and we're meeting up with Danny and Dan to go to the cinema and watch Guardians of The Galaxy. I've only heard good things about it, not watched any trailers, don't think I want to be honest. Rather just get the full force of the movie. But straight after seeing that we're going over to Harry and Dans (this is another dan, we know a lot of dans) house, we're gonna have some drinks with them. Then the day after that Johnny will still be around, but it is his last day here before my last day at work, so we're going to celebrate a little and we may end up out, we may not, we shall see. Then on Friday Danny is coming over for the weekend and we're gonna playing some xbox, now I'm a free man! Plannnnnn.

Seen as though I'm a free man next week I'm heading home to see my Mum and my grandparents are coming up for a few days, it'll be nice to see them all again. It's been a while since I've last been home.

I have been picking up my guitar a lot recently and have been just jamming a few riffs I have come up with. Last night I thought I'd give it a go at recording a little solo video, I did and I'm pretty pleased with what I came up with, I don't think I'm going to post it anywhere though. I am slowly picking up these new techniques and I am really enjoying learning all these new shapes and styles.

Tomorrow is the 3 day marker before I finish. My mood is changing now I know that this year is slowly coming to an end. I say slowly, it's felt like 10 minutes since I started.

Day 273 - Internet-less

Today our internet went down. The landlord said it was going to happen soon because the last tenants didn't pay the bills, which is a shame for me because I'm in the house on my own with no internet. Luckily he said he will sort it out as soon as possible, which is good news.

So it's the first day of the final week in work. Weirdly I have been pretty busy today and expect it'll be be same tomorrow. Starting to come up with some plans for the next person who's taking over. Might write them a coded message explain to them how much of a boring year they're about to have. Maybe someone else will enjoy it more than me?

Seen as though it is my final week I'm planning something pretty special for the Thursday and Friday. Thursday is the last night Jonny is here for a good week or so until he moves in, so we're planning on getting pretty drunk on the Thursday, we may end up out, we might stay in and eat Burger Time. Then on the Friday I'm gonna get Danny round and we're gonna do it all again! Really looking forward to have them days to do nothing but be a student again. Then in no time Johnny will be back and we can go crazy all the time.

Going to start blogging at work for this week until my internet is back up, at least I'm going to try and remember to do it. 4 more days left!

Day 272 - Sleep. Please.

Ended up staying all night last and watched the first and second Matrix film. No idea but it was awesome to watch again after so long.

So now all day I've been stupidly tired because I was up all night. So now I'm getting to bed early with the office and hopefully I'll fall asleep soon.

Good night. Final week starts tomorrow!

Day 271 - Back on my own

Terri headed off this afternoon after a few days here, had both her and Johnny here  for a few days and it's been great. Still looking forward to the day Andy is here as well and we're all fully here.

Thought I'd have a slow day so I ran to the bus stop to make sure Terri didn't forget her bank card which took it out of me that's when I decided I'm doing nothing more this weekend. And that is what I did. I got in out the Simpsons and on and didn't stop until I got hungry, had some food an carried on.

Thought I'd change t up a bit now, sat downstairs and listening to some vinyls before I go watch some more tv, wow what a weekend haha
