I do not have one. T.V sucks. Go read a book, ride a bike, sing a song, play an instrument. Go throw a party, make a film, hang with your friends, plant a tree, tell a joke. Go save a turtle, write a poem, bake cookies, make a baby, start a blog, watch a movie, dye your hair, cut your hair. Go be dramatic, make a friend, lay on the grass, climb a tree, swim in a river, swim in the sea, go fishing, paint a picture, watch the clouds, play a sport. Go take a photograph, fly a plane, roll down a hill, mow the lawn, tell a story, dance your heart out, drink a beer. Above all, go with a smile on your face.
The world is full of rewarding things to do; don’t waste your time watching the television.
So, I really have a hard time picking favourites. Then it occurred to me; I thought that I would post the song with the highest play count in my iTunes library. Sure, it may sound a little depressing but I think there’s a good message hidden in the lyrics. Plus, I like the bit of guitar at the beginning. Nothing wrong with a bit of Incubus.
I have an exam in 3 days. I had an opportunity to study for around 1 hour 30 minutes. I spent 1 hour 15 minutes of this time watching mrweebl videos on youtube. Mathematics tells me I have a pretty immature outlook on life. Do I care? Of course not. ^^
Okay, so, I’ve decided to become a little more active on tumblr than I have been recently. I’ve also decided that I’m gonna change the content that I post to include things that isn’t just pieces of creative writing. A bit of journalistic activity might be interesting too, right?
It’s been a unusual month for me: I’ve come to realise that some people, no matter how genuine they seem, are often just exceptionally talented at lying and hiding things. On the brighter side, it’s good to know who my true friends are; the ones who I can trust further than I can throw them. A few of my more recent acquaintances really inspire me, and make me hopeful about the future so I’d like to take the opportunity to say thanks.
Of course, the news in the UK has been dominated by the election for quite some time now; and weirdly enough, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching the events unfold. Only rarely does politics become a part of the daily life of the people, and I would say that this election 2010 has done this more than any other. In fact, I myself attended a political rally for the Liberal Democrat party in nearby Sheffield, and it was a lot of fun. At first, there were only a few hardcore political geeks discussing policies with each other, weighing the pros and cons of their favoured parties; but by the time the votes had all been counted and the parliament was hung, I could hear 4 or 5 seperate conversations in one of my classes about the same subject: politics. What is even more surprising, perhaps, is that this was a room full of 16 and 17 year olds who were not yet eligible to vote. That just goes to show how far the race for prime minister has gripped the country.
Summer is well and truly on the way; there’s blossom on the trees and blue skies above me, and all in all it’s putting me in quite an energetic, optimistic mood. I just wish the powers that be didn’t choose to schedule examinations during this otherwise happy time. I have my first exam (French Speaking) in 3 days, and I don’t want to revise. I want to have fun. I want to stay out all night with my friends and take advantage of my youth while it lasts.
