Listening to Pett Level by Keston Cobblers’ Club
I have recently been getting my head down to shift through piles of revision; well attempting to anyway. I have had one exam already with two left to go, one with Thursday and one the following Tuesday.
However as well as ‘revising’ I have also had a couple of other pleasant happenings such as my best friend Mikey coming up to see me. I had to show him a proper night out in Liverpool. Unfortunately we had to choose clubs carefully due to him being epileptic but in the end we just went to Baa Bar and chatted in the smoking area for about three hours before returning back to mine. Usually after a night out everyone is hungry so we get a takeaway (usually Mr Kebab it seems) however when I was with Mikey I only realised how hungry I was till we got to my halls; this resulted in an emergency trip to the holy grail of supermarkets — The 24 hour Tesco — I chose food which would tend to my cravings! a 20 bag of Tesco’s everyday value chicken nuggets. It’s effectively heaven in chicken form, wrapped up and sold cheaply. We spent the rest of the night eating chicken nuggets and relaxing, having a big catch up and having those close talks you get every so often.
The following morning I suggested we could meet up with Ellen, a mutual friend from back home. One which although we know each other, we don’t know each other. So I was grateful when all three of us went to the Albert Docks, chatting away. The wind was proving a little bit too much for us so we sheltered in the Liverpool Museum and had a brief look while continuing our discussions. It wasn’t long will we were hungry so we came up with a plan for them to come to Carnatic and sample the fine canteen cuisine before returning to the Tesco for alcohol. It wasn’t too long since we got alcohol and started drinking till we needed to go to Jo’s house as we had organised to meet earlier on in the day. After I introduced everyone to all the others chit chat and banter continued flowing throughout the rest of the evening. Eventually we had to leave the flat and walk all the way back to my halls of residence, we stopped to pick up Pringles from Ellen’s halls because we planned to watch a movie while drinking and munching away.
It was also the last PhotoSoc meet up last week so we had a friendly last photo competition and group photo:
After meeting Ellen the other day I found out that two friends from back home are coming up to visit her, Charlotte and Hattie. I organised to see them all and go out with them one night, I decided to drink again for the occasion. After some frapes occurred on several Facebooks which resulted in Charlotte’s boyfriend finding out I was with them. I was worried about this happened before meeting them as I knew he didn’t like me as I was a past boyfriend of Charlotte. Anyway we go out, I convince Charlotte to spontaneously take a banana out to the club with her. Kieran really wasn’t happy with me being there, understandably I suppose. But this caused a bit of friction between them. The following morning he added me on Facebook, I was quite worried to be honest. I discussed with people during the day whether I should speak to him and try my best to explain I am not a danger to their relationship, it was more than three years ago when we split up. To think I have feelings for her in that kind of way I think is absurd. Regardless I stopped worrying when he came to talk to me instead. We had a fantastic chat, quite a deep one. It was mainly about him and the past. As I have said to many people in the past, he is such a lovely person to talk to even when he thinks I am a problem. So he apologised for everything in the past and we cleared up a lot of stuff. This has made me respect him so much more, especially as he said he feels like he has a approached a fear. And it was quite an honour to see him say ‘You’re a decent guy. It’s just the fact you were a decent guy that worried me and the fact you were her ex. You’re so close to home, like all her friends love you, her family and I just felt threatened.’. I was initially worried he meant her family was threatened by me, but he said he made a mistake and said they loved me (which I don’t actually believe but never the less). We both agreed we were glad we spoke and cleared the air.
I have recently noticed Facebook picture URLs like to be changed after a period of time. Or at least photos I posted in excess of a year ago are no long there. I think after exams and I have more three time I shall do a back up and file photos I put on the blog so they are more permanent. I look back on past posts regularly to reminisce or remind me about something so it’s a pain when photos aren’t there any more. Anyway I better get back to revision!
