Go here: www.myspace.com/hatracket (sorry, I don't know how to do the whole embedded link thing) and listen to the song Death by Numbers. It's beautiful stuff and everyone should listen to it. Now. Go! Dammit, listen to the song.
It was written by an old school friend of mine. It's worrying to see what my old mates are doing nowadays. Either they're about to leave uni and go out into the real world and get high paying jobs, or they're getting engaged, or they're using their talent to write beautiful songs. And here I am, sitting at my laptop writing on Facebook when I should be revising. With two more years ahead and no ideas of what the hell I'm going to do with my life.
Thank fuck for that. The last thing I want is the pressure of having to succeed right now. No thank you! One day, in two years time perhaps. I mean, that's the definition of being a student isn't it? I worry sometimes that people forget this. That they actually think that what they do as a student at uni is important on some sort of global as opposed to personal scale. Like I say, to the individual what they do is important and worthwhile, as it is. But doing something in uni isn't the same as doing it in the real world. It's a depressing fact that people often choose to ignore. The real world's a scary place, so for now I'd rather stay in my student bubble, thanks very much.
Before I go have a shower and do some goddam revision I just want to say a massive thank you to Eleanor Rhode, Chris Mounsey, Simon Hodges, Mim Cross and Becs Kamps for all their hard work on Lime Tree Bower over the last few weeks. The run was great fun and successful thanks to all the effort you guys put in. I enjoyed every minute of it and hope you all did too!
Now go and listen to Death by Numbers by Noah and the Whale.
