Possible Challenge!

I have decided that on a ‘postly’ basis I shall be doing a ‘Choice of the post’. These could be songs, films, actors or books or anything else that comes to mind. Today’s post will feature the song, ‘Through the eyes of a child’ by Reamonn. I have chosen this because of the amazing sounding chorus it has. It invokes you to sing along and feel the song if you guys know what I mean. The words of the chorus also rings true, ‘Why did we make it so hard, this life is so complicated until we see it through the eyes of a child’. Have you ever noticed in the midst of everything going wrong around you there is a child just laughing for no reason? It’s because they don’t have any problems. I think it’s good to think about that and maybe think about how good we all had it in the past.

… Now on to my day, I’ve been pretty good today to be honest. I had the day off College which I spent waking up at half past 7 to get my sisters ready for their school day. I did manage to fall back to sleep till 10 o clock after they had gone at which point I needed to get ready to go to Doncaster Rovers Stadium to hand my bank details in so that I could receive my FIRST of many pay packages. It feels good knowing I am going to have a bit more money in my bank. After, I did the usual, go back into the town centre to buy new aerosol and toothpaste… I had such a riveting time today haha.

Ohhhh! Before I forget, I booked my train tickets today for my weekend trip to Lincoln. I and my friend are going to tear it up (Metaphorically speaking of course) that night. I think Jaggerbombs are on the table for Saturday night. I am excited about them. It’s been a while since I’ve had one and that was when I was drunk on Tequila, but that’s for another post. It will be good to see what they actually taste like.

I would like to make a special thanks to www.play.com in this post for keeping me up until 2 am in the morning just passed. I admit it was partly my own brains fault for liking to solve things but I’m going to put the blame onto Play. Last night I was just minding my own business, ironically trying to come up with a business idea when I had a little look on Play’s website to take my mind off my current predicament, anyway as soon as I came to the website my interest for puzzles was sparked, they had a Rubik’s Cube on the front page. I can manage 1 side of the Rubik’s Cube pretty easy but all of it is a problem for me…. mark my words though, one day in my life I will actually complete a Rubik’s Cube. I seem to have gone off track… ohh that’s right, puzzles; anyway I started looking for puzzles for when I have the money to buy them and out of nowhere my mind jumped to something else, Critical Thinking. In a nutshell critical thinking is taking peoples arguments and what they say apart and analysing it whilst talking to them… ‘Reading between the lines’. I am interested in that sort of stuff. I’m a weird 18 year old haha. Then things escalated again, from critical thinking I jumped to a theory that me and my friend have been arguing about for a long time, ‘Anything is Possible’ with me on the opposing side. Now I’m not arrogant enough not to say that anything COULD be possible but anything IS possible is incorrect. I started this whole thing at 9 pm. I finished thinking about it at 2 in the morning. Ohh don’t I know where my priorities are in life. Thanks play.

I have also been thinking about doing some sort of challenge thing to do with my blog. You can send in ideas of possible challenges to do and I will pick one and do it. Document it and you shall get a special mention on the next blog post. I am unsure when I would be doing this as I haven’t got that much traffic yet but when things start back up but if you want to send in ideas just put the idea as a comment and I shall take it into consideration.

That’s all I have for now, ciao for now.

‘I will not be beaten, you have yet to see me shining, shining, I won’t take this lying down’. These are the lyrics to a song by Kristian Leontiou. The song is called ‘Shining’. I have always liked these lyrics as they don’t need to be explained and are fairly simple to understand. Although in the song it later suggests that these lyrics are about being better for someone than somebody else, ‘who am I to break this young girl’s heart, how the mighty rise and fall’ I personally find these lyrics can be about anything. I choose to believe the lyrics are about being better at anything than someone else. Being all you can be.

… Right, now that some of my favourite lyrics are out of the way, time to tell you about my day. In all honesty it has been quite good and has gone fairly fast. You won’t know but I am still on my antibiotics for an infection in my toe and they have been giving me a little trouble today what with tiredness and a slight bit of nausea. That aside, I received my latest set of results and it seems I have improved from my first result of 49% (Still a pass) to 70% and still showing signs of improving. I was really happy about that. My fear has hit though in maths, something I say I wouldn’t see again… equations. God forbid I hate them. I managed to get them all right but it took me a fair bit of time to do them. Oh yes, I forgot, we receive all of our questions on sheets of paper… well I managed to prove that one of the questions were wrong. They gave 4 different answers and I came to the conclusion that none were correct and surprised surprise, I was correct. Great piece of irony right?

In English I was also given some good news, myself and only 5 other people passed our assessment, unhappy faces to the others’ that didn’t pass but I am glad I got the oral discussion out of the way. I am also in a happy mood because of our next presentation. While I’m not too fond of doing presentations in front of the class, I am in heightened sensations about it being about something of my choice. I actually get to choose what I present about. Right now I am thinking of the different topics I could talk about and a few come to mind; Manchester United (Favourite Team), the age of the Mustang, and false Dichotomy. I have taken a fond liking to that term.

In other news, I have just received my new antivirus through the door and just in time. 2 days is all I had left of my previous year’s contract. The antivirus I have got is the awesome ‘Kaspersky’. Due to my great liking of 2009’s version, I have decided to purchase 2011’s new version which has a new interface which in my opinion looks fantastic. I think I also achieved the ‘Nerd status’ as I couldn’t wait to install it and run a full system scan to see if I had any viruses, not for the safety of my computer but purely because I can do it.

Apart from the obsessive scanning of my laptop, I am in the midst of booking my train tickets for my trip to Lincoln at the weekend. My friend decided it would be good to move down there for University (douche haha) so I am planning on going to visit him. It isn’t my first time in Lincoln, although it is the first time I ‘could’ be experiencing the night life if my antibiotics are finished by then. Even so I won’t have a lot of money so maybe drinks in will be best. Anyway back to the point, since he moved down I have been planning on going for a while but either never had the money or never had the time. Now I have got both so, LINCOLN HERE I COME. I HOPE YOU REMEMBER ME! (The city not the friend)

I think that is all I have to say today but my new blog post should be up in a day or so depending on what happens tomorrow or the day after. Ciao for now.
