All About clyde46
Here we are again, I'm begining to get into the habbit of writing these
Anyway, I'm back in Soton now I'm loving it down here. The weather is begining to feel more summer'y which makes a pleasent change. I really love being at uni but what I dont like the mountain of work I have standing before me. But thanks to Mr Ash cloud, some of my lecturers are stuck abroad so we *might* get an extenstion on some work.
In other news, I managed to make an arse of myself again (nothing changes ). I was with a friend and we were ordering McDonalds for lunch and they have this Monopoly "peel and win" game going on. So while waiting for the rest of our food. We decided to peel off the card thingys. I got Park Lane, when I saw this I thought I'd already got Mayfair. Get them both and you win £500,000! Needless to say, I up ended my wallet on to the counter, scattering change across it. When I went through all the ticket things I already had, my heart sank when I find out I dont have Mayfair but only another Park Lane. So I felt a bit of an idiot. My friend found it very funny though.
Oh, one more thing before I sign off. I'm looking to run the London marathon next year
Well its been far too long since I've done one of these.
Well since the last update, alot has happened. Far too much to list here but I'll cover the basics
I've gotten into uni now and its made me grow and mature so fast. I went from stable life back in my home villiage to a completely unknown area and being forced to stand on my own two feet. I'm now only 9 weeks away from the finishing my first year :O
Over the last few months I've experienced a lot of highs and lows. Last month I split with my girlfriend of 11 months. It hard me hard but after 6 or so weeks I'm begining to forget about her and focus on my life. I've made a plan, get fit, get a job, learn to drive, get a car, get awesome ( in any order )
I've also had some issues with family which has caused some problems at home. I've been spending most of my Easter break sleeping on my friends sofa. Hopefully I'll try and resolve those issues before I go back to uni.
On the plus side of things, I've had one hell of an Easter break! On monday of this week, I spent a brilliant afternoon with Tofu-Lion91 and Wolls. We watched Kick Ass and indeed that movie is really Kick Ass I've seen a lot of old school friends which was awesome!
In gaming news, I've gotten quite a games. I've been spending more time on my pc, I went a bit mad with the Steam sales at Christmas and ended up buying a lot of games. But I've always been spending some time on my 360. I really do like sales because I've spending less and getting more! I remember buying Mirrors Edge for £5, Tropico 3 for £15 (one on PC thanks to the Steam sales and on 360 thanks to a mess up on Zavvi's part. Not that I'm complaining, the 360 version was £35, I payed the same price as the PC version ).
I also bought my first Final Fantasy game! It took me a little while to get used to the new battle system and to be honest I'm not really a fan of it. Sure it works and it works pretty well at times but I miss the old skool battle system. Lining up your moves, pressing go and hoping you picked the right ones. I payed about £60 for the game and the special edition guide which is helping alot!
I've now become a owner of a PS3, its broken thought but I got it for free. Its costing me £130 to have Sony replace it for another 60Gb launch model (I've heard they are pretty rare now). I'll have to lug through London on the way home though. Hopefully I'll be able to play it on a new HDTV
I think thats most of the things I can remember, hopefully I'll be able to update my blog more often.
Thanks for reading!
15Apr 08the achievements for GTA4 I posted in my last blog ARE the real deal now. GTA is looking better and better.
