Planning the adventure: Japan day 2-3

Waking up for the first time in Tokyo is going to be bloody weird. I love that moment of dissociation when you realise you’re not in your own bed. In this case I’ll be waking up in a strangers house, in a loft above a living room, and where other guests might be idly chatting…

April Update

Four Months in and how am I doing? Apart from the fact that we’re in May and I’m writing about April…I blame my recent Birthday. Anyway! 1) Get a new job or find a way of making current role more enjoyable. Last month I admitted defeat on this one; at least for the time being….

Planning the adventure: Japan day 1

Nothing about the election? Nope. I have my thoughts and am enjoying reading about various political arguments but right now the thing you probably don’t need is another opinion on the snap election. So instead, lets talk about Japan! As you may well already know I’m finally heading out there with Lucy after many years…

March Update

Yes I know it’s the first of April but this is no joke. It’s my monthly update! 1) Get a new job or find a way of making current role more enjoyable. Applied for three, two in the same department and didn’t get any interviews. Feedback from the first two were laughable – I had…

January Update

One month has passed so how am I doing with my plans for 2017 1) Get a new job or find a way of making current role more enjoyable. Applied for one role Friday – basically more money and new challenges within my current employer. My line manager suggested a couple of new roles that…

Goals for 2017

Yes it’s a cliché but I really want to set some goals for this year. It might work and it might not but I want to give it a go. Let’s get going. 1) Get a new job or find a way of making current role more enjoyable. This is open ended. I honestly have…

Where have you been?

Its been 2 months since my last blog. Two months of news and I’ve neglected writing about any story; even personal ones. The world has been rocked by huge events from Brexit, multiple terrorist attacks and even Pokemon Go and I’ve not posted about a single one; well until now I guess. Brexit – boo. Terrorist…

You’re mostly pointless and that’s why I love you.

I’m a fan of average people – confusing start I know. I consider myself pretty average and I think most people are – we’re fleshbags, air breathers, worm food. We’re statistics and numbers; a family of four killed in a car crash and the winner of a local beauty contest. We are not destined to…

A year in Wii U

I am, by best estimates, one of about 30 people in the world who decided to buy a Wii U and having owned it for a year I thought I’d share my thoughts on the console. 1) It’s cheap. I bought the console last Christmas with Super Smash Brothers and an Amiibo. It cost £180. I’m not exactly…
