Work, work, work. That's all I've been doing lately. My exams are coming up so I've been doing a bunch of studying. It's tonnes of fun
I do enjoy working on my Moving Images Arts (Film Studies) coursework though. Here's a link to a small section. Bonus points if you can name the song.
There was a lot of hanging out of cars and off balconies to get certain shots, but I think it's coming along well.
Also I have a job! A permanent one, with food and tills and money and long hours... and minimum wage.... and... shit.
So yeah. I'm achieving so many activities.
PS: It's my birthday.

Hello. I recently got the e-mail. The one no one ever wants to receive. It gave me a mix of pain, regret, but also pride.
My sponsorship ran out.
I feel regret because I haven't been using the site lately and feel as if it was wasted. All those thoughts I never posted, wasted time and words unhosted. (That's right. I'm a poet bitches) "But accursed who brings to light of day the papers I have cast away." (Sorry. We've been studying Yeats in English) I always liked that line because it's about moving on and not holding your regrets.
But you see my sponsorship wasn't actually mine to waste. It was a gift from a random user who said he wanted to give back not only to the company, but to the community. I wanted to thank him for 6 months of a great experience, but I couldn't find him. I think he may have deleted his account. :(
So this is my thank you. Because of this persons generosity I have become closer and fonder to a community of brilliant people. I have formed friendships, created content and grown as a person. My English teacher told us a quote by William James once. He said "The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual. The impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community." If anyone reads this I want them to live their time on the site with this in mind, knowing that the more work, fondness and generosity you put into the site, the more you will see returned.
Just look at videos, plushies and clothes people are making, the money people just gave @Kisi to help her out of a bad situation, or the hundreds of thousands of people who have smiled, giggled and laughed because of this community. So what I'm saying is thanks. Not just to that one guy but to everybody... for being you.

First off I want to through my festive outfit picture into the ring.
I know what you're thinking. "That guy has some serious fashionable style." But no. It's actually my work uniform. Yes, I am an elf. I mentioned a while ago that I had gotten a way to finance my flights to Africa. Well you're looking at it. Actually quite proud of myself for getting a job.
This is also another reason why I haven't been active lately. That and exams.
I honestly don't know why I took on business studies. -_- It kills me. So with Work and School and slowly losing the will to live I've been pretty preoccupied, but I thought I'd summaries my thoughts on some of the stuff that's been going on.
Survivor2299 = Awesome
RT Secret Santa = Awesome
Doctor Who Anniversary = Awesome
Paul Walker = Sad
Nelson Mandela = Sad
Scotland Helicopter Crash = Sad
So this should be the start of a return to form for posting... hopefully. :) Thanks for sticking with me guys and gals.

Since the announcement of The Walking Dead: Season 2 I decided I wanted to replay the game differently to refresh my memory and see how things would play out...
Well, if you must know I'm a perfectionist. Knowing what I know, I changed my play style to try and keep all the important people (the ones that stay alive longest) happy. I'm sure I'm not the only one to have done this. Atleast one of you must have wanted to try it...
So, I started out my quest and things went well. I saved duck and let Shawn die so Kenny would like me. I didn't try to make nice with Lily at all. I got pissed at Ben for his role in Katjaas death (Duck... not so much). Hell. I even helped kill Larry. It was really interesting to see how the game played out differently with these choices. But then towards the end of the 4th episode it hit me... I'd created a monster. There is one moment where you have to tell Clementine wether or not you will search for her parents before you leave and, to speed the story along so I could deal with the "important" people, I lied to her. Right to her face...
I probably wouldn't have thought about it if she hadn't realised I was lying. She started crying and I felt horrible. It made me look back on all the decisions I'd made and I hated wretched creation. My search for perfection had formed into a quick tempered, violent, lying bastard...
it was a real punch in the gut. But you know what the strange thing was. Despite my realisation and chance at redemption in the final episode, I couldn't do it. My creation had broken the bonds of my control and I found myself living the life of this abhorred vision of the Lee I once new, driven not by the love of a little girl but by the obsession of revenge against the man who stole her. "Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from it in disgust?"...
The game ended the same as it did before, but how I felt at the end was incredible different. I learned something about myself from it. And that is why I love this game. Because it says so many different thing's with the same words.
PS: If you're wondering about all the references I've been studying Frankenstein in school and it just seemed to apply itself to my situation quite appropriately. I think this line sums up my feels by the end perfectly. "Polluted by crimes, and torn by the bitterest remorse, where can I find rest but in death?'

Yeah. As much as I wanted to make a dramatic entrance I feel bad for leaving for so long. My last Journal was 2 weeks ago.
But seriously, "IT'S NOT MY FAULT!" (Couldn't help myself from quoting Han). I've had a lot of shit going on. It's coming up to Christmas exams, Going to be performing Joseph and the Amazing Technicoloured Dreamcoat in a week...
STARRING: My Back. lol Front row, grey t-shirt.
Rehearsals are pretty intense. 4 hours everyday. :/ And I also am starting my new job. Hilarious pictures coming soon. Prepare your body!
The time I have had I've spent on GTA:Online. Had a tonne of fun with the AH Angels. @Chicktastic , @LadyOddDuck and some others, who I don't know on the site (link them if you could ) have had a couple of sessions of mayhem.
It was pretty fun. But the main reason I felt pushed to make a journal was because a trailer, that has gotten me more excited than GTA V did, just dropped.
OMG! I... I CAN'T... OUWEBFLWUVCBL:WCJN:KSMKQSCA!!!
So that has been everything. I probably won't see you guys again 'til christmas. Goodbye and good luck and remember...
