3rd year, lemons and the Splash website

Oct

02

So, as I sit here on the cusp of my final year at Sussex, lemon in hand (free bus travel, see) - NB lemon is not actually in hand, just nearby in case of emergencies, otherwise typing would be too difficult. What was I saying? Oh yes, 3rd year. I do feel a little wierd and old with all the freshers about, and although I'm only (about to be) 22, I feel like I need to start thinking about "the rest of my life." Hopefully I have a prospective job lined up, received a call from the Shell Step program with a possible job in the area that I'm looking for (surely anything beats working at sainsbury's?). I would also like to congratulate the splash team not only for coming up with a great idea for student interaction, but to actually get it on the front page of Sussex Direct, trust me after working with the PAL scheme last year I can tell you that is no easy task. Keep up the good work guys, I'm looking forward to seeing how SPLASH grows over the next year.

Right I'm off to Uni to remember what I learnt last year.

Birthday's when you get past 30

Nov

28

So, it's something I have always wondered. I have noticed as you get older, the notion of your birthday seems to become somewhat diluted and not as big as an event that it used to be when your younger?

Therefore, I decided to have a big birthday bash on the weekend and try to relive my younger days of hedonism and mayhem.

Being 33 for me doesn't feel particularly old, just a slight reminder to tell me to get things done before time runs out! I have had that feeling far too often before.

This weekend however, that will be all forgotten and I shall be concentrating on purchasing a silly hat to try and win the hat competition at my party.

OR should I try and get myself into some skinny jeans and heavily pointed shoes for the first time in my life?

Who knows....Cool
