Here lies the blob
Here lies the slob
He can’t get up
He can’t be bothered

Here lies the slob
Here lies lazy man
He doesn’t care
He won’t get anywhere


Every Single Time…

M was supposed to come over my house today, as she was back from uni for a few days. I thought she’d actually come this time, but still suspected she’d pull out. I was right. Shortly before she was going to be here I got a phone call from her saying she couldn’t come because she had to help her sister move stuff because her sister wasn’t feeling well. I swear this happens every single time these days. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. I know that they are all valid reasons, but it does get really annoying. I think from now on, I’ll work on the assumption that she won’t be able to make it, to avoid disappointment. That might work. This time it was even her idea to come over, which is very unusual. We have re-arranged it for Tuesday, but since I’ve got work at 4 that day, I doubt she’ll be here for any more than 2 hours. Oh well. At least it is some company for once.

Good vs cheap

This debate has sparked in my head a few times over the past few weeks. The first time was on my visit to Canterbury, and the second was after a Doyle and the Fourfathers gig the other week.

At Canterbury, we scouted out several pubs one night and they were jam-packed, so we ended up in this rubbish one where we had to sit right next to the DJ (this is a small pub, so god knows why they thought that was a good idea anyway) who was playing this awful music. But we endured it for a while. Eventually we cracked though, and found this other pub with seemed very nice, and had normal music playing. But in this pub the drinks were expensive. However, in this instance I decided that I would much rather pay more for a drink in a pub where I could actually talk to people, listen to good music and actually have a good time, than sit in a rubbish pub listening to very awful, very loud music that had cheap drinks.

In the second instance, me and some mates were looking for a place to eat after going to a gig in the late afternoon. But we wanted somewhere that was fairly cheap, especially since one of my mates didn’t have much money. We ended up at the Giddy Bridge where it’s pretty cheap but, to be honest, the food is pretty average. But we put up with it, because we didn’t have much choice. I must say, in some ways I would prefer to go somewhere more expensive where the food is nice. But I know that that’s a rarity in pubs, so I don’t really mind that much.

In conclusion, I would like to be able to go to somewhere that was nice but a bit more expensive. But as a student, I can’t really afford it. At least I know that in Southampton there is one place that I can rely on to be both nice and cheap is The Crown Inn, even if it’s not in town so I can’t go there when I’m in town on nights out. Oh well. You can’t have everything in life.


Yesterday me and J-O had a little problem. She was worried about what is going to happen with her English exam, with her university applications, if we would be together. Naturally, she made me worried about it too.

I tried, as is my way, to be all ‘noble’ about it. She said that she wants us to be happy, for me to be happy, but I said that she should not worry about me. I told her that she should do what is best for her, and if that means we can’t be together, then I don’t mind, because she will be better off.

Of course, deep down I didn’t want that at all. But I felt – I feel – that her well-being is more important than mine. I didn’t want for her life to be worse because of me. I wouldn’t wish that on anybody. I feel it’s the right way to think about it – I don’t want to be selfish. I don’t want for her to deny herself a good life just for me, for us.

But she said that she wants us to be together. She said I was very nice, that she wanted us to be together. Soon. She was just worried about the chances of it happening. In the end, we decided that we should not think this way, that we will believe that it will work out, because our love is strong. I hope so, so much. I don’t know what I would do if I lost her…


I know, I’ve been neglecting this blog. I’m sorry. But I just haven’t felt the urge to write much recently. However, I do have a few ideas for entries, which I will be posting in the next few days. One of them will deal with why I think I’m not writing on here as much as I used to. I hope you’ll find them interesting.

How I Felt Before

Funny Female Thoughts

It’s strange, when you’re sitting down somewhere and you can clearly hear them talking, you can’t help but listen. This isn’t always a good thing – like when I overheard this woman arguing with her boyfriend over him wanting to go beat-up one of her ex’s – but sometimes it can be quite funny.

Take today for example. I was in a lecture and there were these girls sitting in the row behind me. I could clearly hear them talking about the merits and downsides of going out and drinking. But then one of them said, when talking about ’embarrassing things’ or similar when drunk, that “I hold the view that if you don’t remember it, then it didn’t happen”. And I just thought, ‘yeah, I bet if your mind you still consider yourself a virgin!’.

What a stupid thing to say…
