Hawkmoon 269

There are some things I could quite happily live without. School, for one.

I have just discovered that Elmer Bernstein has died. Mourn with me. I guess it was rather apt that I was listening to a bootleg of One Tree Hill when I found out.

Is it just me, or would you have a hard time guessing the Olympics are on. I see some of you posting keenly about them, but here, no-one seems to care at all and you could quite easily deceive yourself into believing they no longer exist. I'm yet to watch a second of the Games myself. If they had sports I was interested in, then yes, I'd watch, but rugby union and cricket are not Olympic sports and I am very much tired of swimming and running. I saw it in 1992 (yes, I remember Barcelona), 1996, and 2000; that was more than enough.

The sociophobia didn't improve today. Didn't worsen either, but it didn't improve. Just as long as it's not on my mind when I'm taking exams, I will be very happy.

On three random notes;

1. When I live by myself, I will eat at the most random of hours. Dinner's cooking now because I'm hungry but it's too late to have lunch.
2. Sitting outside doing my work in the nice, somewhat cool afternoon air is actually very good and gets me motivated and focused, or at least to an extent. I wish I had a laptop ...
3. Play Rock's Hottest Ticket (29 April 1987) very loud and you won't regret it. I played it very loud while I worked and it helped enormously. Plus, the performances of The Unforgettable Fire, Exit, and Springhill Mining Disaster are superb and you can't not be pumped by the opener, Where The Streets Have No Name.

I would also like to point out that I have some of the most awesome friends.

Reminder to self: Tomorrow, I must not forget to write about that assignment I read in SOR.
