Friendship Report: Impulse Buys


Dear Readers,

Have you ever done something by impulse that turned out to be a much better idea than you had originally expected? I have,in fact it was a recent impulse buy of mine that turned out to be a very good idea. I had been watching a lot of videos on YouTube from a user called Rob Scallon, and he likes to play 8-string guitar, and so I decided to buy my own 8-string.

Friendship Report: Spring is Here!


Dear Readers,

So last Sunday I was fortunate enough to catch Papa Roach perform at the Manchester Academy along with Coldrain, who I had never heard of, and also The One Hundred, who I had also never heard of. I didn't originally know about the two opening acts, I just thought it was going to be a Papa Roach gig, but nobody tells me anything. I'm not complaining, it meant there was more Nu Metal for me to bounce around to.

Friendship Report: The DJ


Dear Readers,

I'm quite happy to say that I was fortunate enough to find two Rush albums on half price at HMV earlier, and so instead of only buying one like I intended, I bought both of them. However, I'm not happy to say that I was in a night club last night that featured the worst DJ imaginable, she didn't know how to equalize, and she had no clue what she was supposed to be playing.

Friendship Report: Addictions


Dear Readers,

For some strange reason I thought it would be a good idea to resubscribe to World of Warcraft, and now I've rekindled that old addiction of mine. So before I plunge myself back into the magical world of Azeroth, I thought I'd better get a quick post up, especially since I didn't leave myself enough time to post yesterday.

Friendship Report: Too Much Stuff


Dear Readers,

I may not live in the cleanest of houses, and that doesn't really bother me. I don't exactly live in a cluttered house either, I simply just have too much stuff in my room, and not much space. The sad part is I've cut down on clutter by approximately 60% and I still have too much. I find it amazing, how could I live with all that junk in my room? So I want to talk about stuff in the literal sense for a change.

Friendship Report: The Interview and some Lovey Dovey Stuff!


Dear Readers,

As I believe I mentioned in my post last week, I had my interview for the army today. It was the first job interview I have ever done, and as one can expect, I was dreading it. Thankfully it all went quite well, and my terror quickly dispersed once the interview actually started. On the other side tomorrow is Hearts and Hooves Day!

Friendship Report: A Little Push


Dear Readers,

This week I have had a lot of exposure to the army. A large group of them came into the college and gave a presentation to those of us who take sport and public services (which also included the army prep course). That was probably the best thing that could have happened to me, for it helped me put myself back on track.

Friendship Report: Eighteen


Dear Readers,

As you can probably tell, it was someone's eighteenth birthday this week. It was my good friend Nathan's, but his birthday wasn't the only one this week, on Monday my mother turned 55, and on Tuesday my oldest brother turned 27. There is also another eighteenth coming up on Sunday, but thankfully, I'm not invited to Ash's party, I say thankfully because the celebrations for Nathan's party haven't finished yet, and I've already been killed off by those.

Friendship Report: Modern Technology


Dear Readers,

If any of you read my personal blog, you may know that I now have a smartphone, I don't know why I have one, but it was given to me by Nathan's dad, so I'm not going to complain. It's about four years out of date, so it's nothing too fancy, and for those of you who are wondering it's a HTC Desire S, and no, I don't know if HTC are actually a good brand or not, because I've only known of the existence of HTC for six days now.

Friendship Report: Normaility




Dear Readers,

I hope you have been enjoying your return to normality. I for one have, but I'm not liking how all the Valentines Day products have crept into shops over a month before Valentines Day. I've got nothing against Valentines Day, I actually quite enjoy it, and I find it cute, but all that is besides the point, for this post isn't about Valentines Day, but about normality.

Really pleased that these DVDs are finally coming out over here in the UK. I was surprised how quick I saw them pop up in stores back when Primal released their first batch last year. Below catch a press release, they mention this one comes with a special pony toy of sorts, which sounds epic.

Friendship Report: Nightmare!


Dear Readers,

I'd like to start off by saying that the title is only slightly misleading, and also gives way to a very anticlimactic post. Anyway, six days into the new year, one of my worst nightmares became reality. The sad part about this is that it truly has been a strange fear of mine for quite some time now, and it's finally happened.

Friendship Report: The Waiting Game!


Dear Readers,

I hope you all feel well after what was probably a really good party, those of you who didn't party I hope you enjoyed your sleep, or whatever it was you were doing. Anyway, we are now in 2015, so do try and remember that when those of you who attend school or college return to it. Anyway, there will be quite a few exciting things to come out of 2015.
