Go Somewhere, Find Something, Photograph It...

I know I mentioned it before, but Iv just got some photos back from when I went to the New Forest and found an abandoned farmhouse. It was quite cool...

Come Home...

I've finished my exams, which is sick.
And Iv finally got some more films developed, although the advance mech on one of my cameras seems to have failed and 2 out of 3 were blank....shucks. Although I did get these nice expired ones of an abandoned farmhouse in the New Forest.

Im halfway through watching Stephen King's 'IT', its really 'look under the  covers before you get into bed' scary

Halfway through exams....

Why can't it be last summer again?
I remember taking this photo on expired film on one of the post-house party days where days would disappear in peoples beds and aimless wandering.

..On the failings of me to check things properly

I bought myself a really nice old Zenit e m42 t'other day and have been really looking forward to getting it in the post.
But I got a phone call from back home asking why a camera sized package addressed to me has just been delivered?

Didn't check the delivery address.....

More positively, I got frightened rabbits album the other day and its pretty magic.
Its called the midnight organ fight and I would highly recommend it (Theres a video in my last post just in case you think im lying).

Anyway first exam tomorrow so Im going to go get acquainted with some books.

...oh yeah

...I did the washing up!

Its amazing what you'll do to avoid revision!
For example, we went to bingo last night!!!!!
Although it did turn out to be large buckets of fun

Before I return to the large textbook Im currently using as a paperweight this band makes time stand still...

....I hate revision

Thought Id take a break from looking at pages of big books without actually taking anything in.
I was walking past a charity shop yesterday quite late and I saw one of these in the window...

I went back the next day and it was reduced to £5!!!!
So its now been added to my collections

That girl and that clown.....

Somebody commented on my last post (thanks melissa) and reminded me of those times you'd wake up early on saturdays
Earlier than school time
Just to sit and watch that test card, until the cartoons begin!

I read somewhere that the test card has everything your tv needs to startup...

And there was me thinking  it was just a clown and a girl!

Eagle Vs Shark 1 am

I love this film
Its about what happens to the people that don't get the happy endings when the other film finishes.

Late christmas present...

I've been thinking...

about getting a swallow tattooed across my right shoulder and chest for a while.
I know that loads of people have it and theres about 50 different meanings behind it but the one that really strikes me is that traditionally all swallows return home to san juan capistra every year...

I've been away from home quite a lot recently so I want to remind myself and my family that I'll always come back.

How come revision only seems to remind you of how little you really know?

Ive got a week and a bit....
Its not really enough

I want to be back here

"This is peace and contentment. Its new"

At lunchtime I bought a huge orange
The size of it made us all laugh.
I peeled it and shared it with Robert and Dave-
They got quarters and I got a half.

And that orange made me so happy,
As ordinary things often do
Just lately. The shopping. A walk in the park
This is peace and contentment. It's new.

The rest of my day was quite easy.
I did all the jobs on my list
And enjoyed them and had some time over.
I love you. I'm glad I exist.
