New Year: New Start?

January 4, 2012

Everyone on Twitter and Facebook have had one thing in common over the past week: “2012, new year, new me”.

This has been a common annoyance for quite a lot of people, mainly my older friends and by older, I mean mentally. The ones who don’t bull s**t and don’t whine about anything. Anyway, what is the big deal with every year the same handful of people saying they’re going to change and be a different person? We all know who they are, we all have them on our feeds and we all know what the outcome will be. Give it a month and I put money on the table that they either A) Start whoring about again, B) End up messing up the relationship they fought oh so hard to get back (you know, the one that you’ve heard them moan about so much over the past 2 months) or C) going back on ALL their resolutions and getting back into their bad habit’s or being shallow.

Everyone who’s doing this should take a big step back and have a long hard think about what they are telling the world online. I don’t think half of them realise this but the decent half of the world are laughing their virtual asses off behind their screens at all these promises of change and then going back to their old selves.

Take baby steps people, make simple resolutions which aren’t just going to help you, but maybe help others around you and make them feel better and if so, please keep them. You’re just providing those who have blogs material to post on… and of course Failbook. They love that stuff.

Happy New Year

January 1, 2012

Happy New Year and well done to all of you who 1) are still awake at this time, 2) able to read this amongst the amount of alcohol you have drunk and 3) have survived this long. 

As I have read on many blogs on WordPress and statuses on Facebook and tweets on Twitter, 2011 has been quite a sucky year. I feel like the whole year I’ve been going into the fridge and taking a glass of milk only to find after the first… 2-3 glasses that the milk is actually off. So far I’d like to announce that I have already got to a good start as I’m actually getting a lot more clients for graphic design, which brings my onto my next point: You peeps should totally click that like button on my page! I know many of you may not have seen my work but clicking that button lets me know you care about my blog at least. You doing this will bring a tear to my eye, and make it look good for other clients as well as making me look popular amongst you internet people

Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read, I hope you have a good new years day, and not much of a hang over.

2011: What To Remember

December 31, 2011

I have a strong feeling this is going to be a pretty damn long post, so I’ll keep the talking to a minimum and get straight to everything that was good/bad throughout 2011.

I’m sure you all know this little sweet. Osama bin Laden, the man who has been on many peoples hit list and been searched for for near enough a decade was found and killed. One of the crown pieces to 2011.

Protests and riots were something that have have stuck out a lot over the past year. I live in Manchester in the United Kingdom so the ones in the UK were visible from outside my window… actually I don’t mean literally out my window but I was out in the city centre  when it all kicked off. I think the scariest thing I saw/heard while in the riots was a guy on the top of a car wearing a hoodie shouting “lets take back the city!”. Of course this wasn’t going to happen but still, that’s not something I want to experience again.

Earthquake/Tsunami in Tokyo on the 11th of March. Ahh yes, another step closer to 2012, but that’s a different post. There have been a lot of disasters like this. If you would like to read more on this event I found a decent article here

Obama releases his birth certificate on the 27th of April. Look, I dont follow politics and I know I’m not one to question the way a country runs and its rules, but why do you need proof that someone was born in the country to run the country? Surely you want the country to run smoothly and for it to be a good place for everyone? Someone from another country can do this you know? They dont need to have an American flag behind them waving patriotically.

 

The Royal Wedding on the 29th of April. I remember before this happening I wasn’t really interested in it, nor was I interested in weddings, but then I woke up earlier for some reason that morning and my room mate was watching it with this emotional look on his face (this is a action gamer for xbox) so I sat and watched it with him and I honestly thought it was the cutest wedding ever. By ever I mean its the only one I have seen haha other than a generic film one.
