Whether its wearing Scream masks, leaping out from behind the shower curtain (and getting punched in the face) or setting up various boobytraps, Joe and I are always thinking about the next prank on our flatmate Vince.
Inspiration doesn’t come naturally when I cook. If anything, coming up with new ideas just never happens. Not even a walk around a handful of shops would help, but the usual student-friendly meals had taken their toll on me.
It was time for a challenge. Continue reading
This blog post is the result of a very quick conversation I had with my flatmate, who after listening to me rant about how bored I was, suggested I wrote a blog post about my cooking. Continue reading
The other night, I decided that it’d be cool to cut up a melon. Having not done this in nearly seven years, and with my current reputation for handling food, it was suggested that I filmed myself doing so. Continue reading
It’s ‘another one of those’ blog posts listing the weirder and more wonderful things I have somehow managed to achieve or learn since starting uni. Much like back in December ’12, after only 12 weeks in London. This time, I’m approaching the 18 month mark – half way through my course.
It’s a scary thought, but these have made up some great memories so far. Continue reading
It seemed to be an appropriate time for me to cook something new. The kitchen was calling my name (those darn voices again…) and I felt inspired. The ‘too much’ Mac and Cheese I cooked three nights ago had only just finished and so a change would be nice. With nothing but ‘inspiration’ on my shopping list, I headed down to the local Tescos and Waitrose to see what I could find. Continue reading
The other night, Vince (my flatmate) and I where bored. Neither of us had any motivation to do any coursework and instead felt like being creative. While usually, Vince would be the victim to a prank by Joe (other flatmate) and I, we thought this time was turn for Joe, who was away from the flat for a few days. Continue reading
London certainly gave me a new year to remember, with plenty of road closures and a fair dose of rain. As I stood frozen to death only moments after being separated from my flatmates, it occurred to me how surreal it was. Standing on Embankment (kind of) at New Year. My first New Year not celebrated at home with the family, and instead actually in London? Continue reading
It’s 7am and the journey back to London begins.
The sky is black, with only a few street lights lit up as I pass through the towns and cities on route to the capital. Continue reading
With only a week to worth through an entire essay, a massive* dataset and an interview with a major construction project while also balancing a part-time job with running a radio station, I needed something to help me get through the days.
So, quite naturally, I thought about food (and blogging about it). Continue reading
Today, I made a child cry because he thought I had cancelled Christmas.
A couple of weeks ago, it was my job to construct a lighting display box at work to showcase the collection of Christmas lights in store. The was that it was to be built, meant that the lights had to become ‘part of the display’ as opposed to just being attached to it. Continue reading
After a recent prank on my flatmate, my tiny remote controlled mini’s ran out of juice. The many millions of AA batteries that they run off had finally run flat, and so to save having to spend money on them in the future, I decided to invest in a box of 100 of the flippin’ things.
I’ve not blogged in a while so I thought I’d tell you about how insulting it is to be on the receiving end of an email from somebody saying they won’t be attending work because of a slight cold.
This, being sent to somebody who still managed to go in after his lung collapsed for a second time in a month? Continue reading
When I first arrived in London, nearly sixteen months ago, I imagined that I would become somewhat bored and tired of the city by now. Nothing but buildings and cars, and the sights we’ve all seen for years on the telly.
I thought it was beginning to rub off, the novelty factor of living in such a city as London.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. Continue reading
It’s that time of year when thousands of men across the land stop shaving their upper lip to help raise awareness of mens health. Guys are often too proud to get checked for things like Prostate Cancer or Testicular Cancer, but Movember is also about mental health. Again, something which is often overlooked for the same reason.
This year, I’m putting down my shaver and taking part. Continue reading
OSX Mavericks is finally out, the desktop equivalent of iOS 7. It didn’t take long for me to get used to iOS 7 as most of the features were the same anyway. Only a new ‘control panel’ had been added, whereas most other features I used were just simply made to look better.
When I say better, I mean, anything could have been an improvement. Continue reading
I probably don’t really need to write anything else – the picture just sums it all up.
It had been a couple of hours since I had dinner tonight, a couple of pieces of fish and a load of chips. You could say I was hungry, but afterwards, I was feeling rather peckish. Continue reading
So yes. It’s cause for a celebration, but not by a lot as I’ve got plenty of work to catch up on. Having now missed slightly over a week of uni, it’s really time to knuckle down and prepare for some of the assignments that have been heading my way already.
Oh the joys.
