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!

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
