Archery - 27/3/22

It's weird how a little gardening and a walk out tonight has made be feel absolutely knackered! I would have thought badminton... obviously not!

Anyway, tonight I shot 60 indoor arrows and achieved by new personal best of 461, 4 more points than Wednesday. I felt like it was going horribly wrong. I start off ok but then I can't seem to hit the golds.

Pixel Growing!

Today was a landmark in history, I actually planted some carrots, lettuces, radishes, rocket and many other mixed leaf plants, I'm hoping they grow nicely :)

Gotta love movies

Now its been sometime since I've posted and a few thoughts are building up again, a distant memory is that exam gawd that was awful. Sitting it was a complete nightmare and I was a nurvus wreck; never have I felt like that before in an exam. This exam I revised so much and worked so hard, I've never felt this in a previous exam. I have no idea what my result will be but I am feeling negative, I guess most people do. I get my results at the end of the month.

Now on to this weekend; Yesterday I first watched City of Ember, its a film about a underground city and terrible stuff happens to the generator so a young boy and girl try find a way out of the city. The film reminded me of Fallout 3, it could have been inspired but the original game series but its really worth watching.

After that I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. What a orignal amazing film. Brad Pitt plays Benjamin wonderfully it shows his excellent acting. He plays many different roles in many films which shows he can act. Many actors such as Vin Diesel could name his films Vin Diesel generic film 1, 2 and 3 etc. However back on to Benjamin Button this is a must buy film on DVD the ending is wonderfully done and nearly made me cry. There were many people in the cinema crying and on the way out there was too... a truely emotional film.

The next film I watched yesterday was Sex Drive... ha its a great hilarious film. Its not worth talking about in detail though, its very simular to Roadtrip.

The last film I watched was Taken. I've never been a fan of Liam Neeson, I am not sure why. He played the main character in Taken extremely well and I liked the action.

Today I watched Role Models, another funny film not sure if its worth buying on DVD though. The characters worked very well together and its a hear warming film. The cinema was quite busy.

After watching that I saw Slumdog Millionaire. My first insight into how India is, a rough film showing the harsh life of a boy who wins 20 million rupies (which is £278,000). He is accused for cheating and has to explain how a slum boy could answer the questions. Its got a good love story entwined into the story too, this is a buy on DVD film.

So as you see I've watched many films this weekend and also gone shopping seeing as its Valentines next week. Hopefully I'll get to my girls house on Saturday night if shes back from work.

I've also started the move of my main website back to Dataflame. Webfusion were lieing to me on the phone and their customer service was extremely poor and in one case I called back and spoke to a woman I had previously spoken to... apparently she had been told off for spending to long trying to fix a problem I was having with login into the control panel she said she couldn't help in case it was a long call again and passed me on to someone else... that was unbelievable.

Gettin' that feelin'

I know I quit Ultima Online a year ago but I recently I've been thinking about it more and more. I think its the community the game has which gives it life and enjoyment. I think I might try it again seeing as Warhammer Online requires a kick ass PC which I ain't buying.

Perhaps MMORPGS are designed to give people a feeling of purpose or a alternative comfortable controllable life to escape to. Now there is nothing wrong with my life, I am with an amazing girl who I love dearly, I get to spend every weekend with her, I am in a job which is sometimes entertaining. Marketing, who dreams of being in marketing when they are a kid... hey mum I want to know how to market products and stuff, that would just be so cool!

I think not, but then I look at what else I can achieve given the skills I have. Now marketing is a great career choice with loads of future prospect providing you have experience.

Next week I have an exam to complete my Professional Certificate in Marketing which I am crapping myself about... exams are terrible, so much to revise, focus on and think about. Assignment based work you take one step at a time and use a book for reference, pretty much like real life... if your not sure, google it. How can our brains expect to hold such massive amounts of information in such great detail, especially when the subject is not entirely exciting or inspiring. Maybe I am heading for a midlife crisis.

My girl is in America (the Caribbean next week!!), I wish I was there but I have this exam, can't have it always. I miss her so much, a lot more than I thought I would. Its weird not being able to pick up my phone can just call her. Or text (knowing it ain't costing her a fortune) her to say hello.

I think I'll consider playing UO after she arrives back that way I'll know its not a lonely thing.

I can see my house from here!

Lee Evan's show was great last night, shame about the seats. I would definately see him again! Im not sure about his singing at the end though, it wasn't even funny! Great night though.
