Day 3, January 10th: Slow Day

Oh dear, 2 days in and already missing out a day, not the best but I’ve not given up yet.

I should summarize yesterday, hotel bookings, assignment woes and a bit of cleaning. Not the greatest of days but hey, I was productive.

On to today, well same thing really, other than the fact that (thank god) I haven’t been involved with hotel bookings. However bookings for that were replaced with bookings for, and I’m not sure how “inappropriate” this may be to some readers, so turn away now if the phrase “We were booking slots for a nude calendar photo-shoot” would upset you. Yes, from hotels to nude photo-shoots, how bizarre university life is ay?

Sorry for the short post but it is assignment city here so I will get back when I can. Thank you for reading, this has been Dan and my not so enthusiastic ramblings.

Day 2, January 8th: Don’t let your dreams be dreams

Today was very productive, shopping, working, communicating, did all three.

Work in a library sounds like the most boring, depressing thing to do, however it’s not. Granted my time today was spent either alone at home or wandering around the lonely streets so most anything other than a Spanish Inquisition would be better.

Getting work done is rewarding, if not for the pride you take from being an independent being getting it done in this world, then just be happy you are getting an endorphin you joyless sap. Doing things you enjoy is rewarding, in much the same way as doing work is, except it’s fun. Unless your work is what you enjoy, many would call you a sad nerd for that, enjoying what you do for a living? Pfft, how absurd. Of course they say that, then go to their joyless job from 9 to 5, (if they’re lucky) and return home exhausted and drained. You, on the other hand, return home feeling content as you’ve enjoyed your day and now you get to have a break from it.

What I’m trying to say is, this is your life, forget everyone else you are above, forget who you are below, the best you can be is someone who loves their own life and lives it well. If you are in that position, help others to get there, if you aren’t, help others to get there too, we’re all on the same team here so everyone would be a lot happier if we acted like it.

I realize that my posts start with a diary entry and end in deep, philosophical realms, I don’t intend to change it as that requires a plan, something of which I do not have.

Did something in this post seem forced? What you didn’t expect the Spanish Inquisition?

See you next time.

Day 1, January 6th 2017: The Adventure so far

Today started off in the way that I expect 2017 will be, doing everything as normal although knowing that things are both different and beginning to change. I’m up to date on my assignments, I have weeks before I have to clean up the mess that is my flat before I have any other human interaction and I’m content with the life I have.

That’s all changing. I believe 2017 to be a year of massive change, personally for me, I turn 20, I will learn to drive and I will enter my final year of university and I don’t know how to prepare for that. For the world, Oompla Loopas have broken free from slavery and will now run the only super power on earth and on the other side of the Atlantic, everyone’s wondering what’s going to happen when the guys across the channel take their leave. No one knows what’s going on, no one can predict what’s going on and I love every moment of it.

Life is all about finding trouble and beating it, growing stronger with each trial you conquer, order is nice, but it prevents growth. Whatever your opinion on anything that happened in the year of the Hollywood Dead, make the most of it and fight to win 2017.

 

Ground Zero

Hello All, it’s your friendly neighborhood Dan here.

So today starts this, my first and most probably, only blog. As you might well imagine from the name, this will mainly be my daily ramblings and thoughts, perhaps too dimwitted for general conversation.

Without further ado, I’ll start with Day one, hope you enjoy.
