Only Me..

Sean has singlehandedly been holding down the blog lately and I do feel quite guilty for that. I finished my exams and second year at university on the 18th of May, and since then I've been out with friends, catching up with people I haven't seen in a while, working my two jobs, as well as helping out at my sister's house with some painting. My "freedom" from university hasn't been that much fun but I intend on making it fun!

I'm going to Spain with my high school girlfriends in a month! Eeeek! So excited! I'm also going to Thorpe Park soon, which is an amusement park here in England. I'm organising Orange Rockcorps again for my friends and I to go to, so working out which project we can all attend and making sure everyone's free on the day of the gig. I'm also waiting for my close friend to have her baby - she was due yesterday but she doesn't seem to want to come out! I want to knit her a lil hat, so I need to learn how to purl, so I can do ribbing for it.

This leads me onto my next thought. I've got 4 months off now, to do a lot of things, to get ready for this next year of studying as well as getting ready for real life. I need to work out now what I want to do for the rest of my existence and I need to work out how I'm going to get there. I believe setting goals and targets are a good way to do this, but I'll need your help. I need to make sure I stick to my goals and targets and that I achieve all I want to before I start my third, and final year, of university.

Ideally, I want to:
1 - Learn how to purl
2 - Make the baby her hat
3 - Learn how to sign
(I've always wanted to know how to sign, more and more deaf people come into my place of work and I feel really ignorant when I can't converse with them, so I need to learn.)
4 - Read up on my modules next year
5 - Pick my option modules for next year!
6 - Learn everything I should have already learnt the past 2 years that I'll need for next year
7 - Read ahead for this year
8 - Get healthier and fitter
9 - Blog more regularly
10 - Help Sean get the blog up to the standard he wants it to be at
11 - Be a good St. John Ambulance member
12 - Learn what I love in Science so I can be passionate about my project/dissertation for final year


So these are my targets, I might add to them, but for now I'm committed to these. It's in writing so I've got to stick to them! I'll keep you posted on how I'm getting on and what I've been up to, I'm sure!

Wish me luck!

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
