2008 rolls in, and I'm still going.

This is what happens when someone doesn't dangle a carrot in front of you - you get lazy. Laziness breeds bad blogging habits, so sorry to anyone who's been expecting updates. Slap on the wrist for me.

So, 2008 has usurped 2007. Bet it didn't see that coming. Anyway, what's been going on since November? Well, I'm still working at Revolver - good times! I'm also stressing out over what's going to happen house-wise next year (six tenant lease + four tenants = two gaps = eviction!) and that niggling thought in the back of my head telling me that I have to choose a firm title for my final year project is really starting to wind me up.

It was a nice peaceful new year for me this time around - no shit having to deal with Tesco over Christmas (they still owe me money from the summer - due to their incompetence, they can't even print a P45 correctly!) and two new little kittens to look after. The parents went away to see their friends, my sister was at house parties with her boyfriend, so it was a nice quiet new year's eve with the kittehs. Yay <3

I'm still going though, which is a lot more than can be said for some people - I'm watching someone I've only actually known for six months slowly succumb to lung cancer, and it's breaking my heart.

But never mind, life goes on for the rest of us I suppose, and with that, I have to get back to work.

I hope it snows this month.

Back to the grindstone for Christopher

Well, it's been a while since I added to this thing. What's going on with me?

  • I worked for a month at my local Tesco over summer (I was let go after a month because they couldn't afford to employ me any more!)

  • I've been engaged in an ongoing battle with Tesco head office because as a result of their incompetency in sorting out my pay, I was charged over £110 by Natwest as Tesco, in a nutshell, cashed a cheque they shouldn't have and as a result made my account overdrawn!

  • I've started my placement at Revolver Records, in Wolverhampton

  • It's my 22nd birthday tomorrow! (October the 13th... and I tell you what, I don't feel 22)

  • I've been busy designing web sites, some of which haven't been used and some of which have

  • I'm thinking of changing web hosts, and buying another 1Tb hard drive for my fileserver (such a geek.)

That's the briefest summary, but I thought that I should put in an update given that I've neglected my blog somewhat. I'll most likely write a longer entry this weekend from the comfort of my house, after I've been fed and watered for free by my parents ;)
