These past few days have been a series of misfires, if I’m being honest - the highlight being that I made a really big house when playing Minecraft last night. No joke.
I’ve been trying to write a proper article/poem/piece of prose and nothing is forthcoming, so I’m hoping that me writing any old gibberish here will improve my chances of churning out something decent in the near future.
I’m listening to Simon & Garfunkel at the moment, which I never used to do. They’re a pair that I took for granted, because I know that their music is ubiquitous - you hear a song of theirs in The Simpsons (that repeat about Grandpa), in Starbucks or being sung by a well-meaning tramp in a dark alleyway quite often. So I took it upon myself to actually listen to them properly and I was impressed.
(INTERESTING FACT ABOUT ME: As a child, I used to confuse Art Garfunkel with Engelbert Humperdinck.)
In other news, I’ve decided that this summer I will endeavour to write something substantial every day. Substantial to me may vary from day to day, but I am going to stick to it - mainly because there’ll be nothing else for me to do when I get back home from university.
A little bit about university. I handed in all of my coursework last week, which was a brilliant feeling. To be honest, I didn’t think that I would make it to the end of the first year let alone the end of the second, so I’m pleased with myself in that respect. The only problem I have with university work is my organisational skills, in other words - doing everything a couple of days before.
I wouldn’t even say that this year was an improvement on last year, because there was less work for me to do (I had already completed a half-module in January). So I don’t know, organisation brings me to my knees a lot of the time.
But yes, my mind is little bit clearer not that I’ve written this little post - if you’ve read this far, then you deserve something better than what’s coming next. The only major thing I have to look forward to is seeing The Tallest Man On Earth on July 3rd - I might see you, but I hope I don’t (unless you buy me a drink).
