Holy shit [Dec. 22nd, 2008|03:02 am]
[mood |thirstythirsty]

FUCK! I forgot about this place. First entry in just over 2 years! 2 fucking years! damn!

in terms of change, I dont know where to start. I think bullet points are called for..

- still live in luton, but in a much nicer place than before, still in the town centre, but we actually have a proper roof this time

- I am a Microbiologist (those 3 years working for a BA (hons) in business and marketing really being put to good use!) Ive been at the lab for coming up for two years in around march/april. Got microbiologism in october, so Im still a bit of a noob. for all the faults of the place I work, I do enjoy having a job which has an interesting (to me) subject around it, plus, most of the people I work with are awesome. some not so.

- Im "retired" from playing music. The scales broke up, then me and gary started a new band called Her majestys rat catchers, but gary moved to leeds, and I dont really have the time or energy to actively seek out a new band. Ive played all over the UK, and did a show in new york (at the sidewalk cafe for all you antifolk nuuurrrddss) so I've had a good inings. Im still open for offers, although I would love to play in something heavier next time, although I havent picked up a guitar in about 3 months.

- me and hayley are still together, and katie the cat is still knocking around

- Me and 4 of my friends are going to Houston Texas for 10 days in april

- Im on facebook.

- I cut my hair yesterday (which Im usually quite good at) but its far too short.

thats about it, 2 years of solid GOLD.... or not.

anyway, I might start updating again. how is everyone else?
