Journal – March 2005

January 2021 Introduction:

Here’s another set of edited entries from my personal journal.

So I hope you enjoy as always!

Journal – January-February 2005

January 2021 Introduction:

Welcome to another set of edited highlights from my old journals. I’m combining 2 months together here, as I didn’t write a huge amount for each.

At this time I was in the early stages of a new temporary job with my local council, working in their Printing department. There wasn’t always a lot to say about it, and there are some details I’ve left out for confidentiality, but you’ll still get a good sense of how I was getting on. And as always there’s plenty of entertainment I was enjoying, plus there’s another top 100 list from the TV, about music videos this time. So I hope you enjoy this little look back as always!

Journal – April-May 2004

November 2020 Introduction:

Welcome to the latest selection of my old Bolt journal posts. I’ve combined a couple of months together again, as I didn’t have huge amounts to write for each, while I was busy revising for exams and preparing for my graduation. But I was also continuing to buy DVDs and music of course, and there were a couple more music polls I found as well. So I hope you find these entries interesting as usual!

Journal – February-March 2004

November 2020 Introduction:

Here’s the next bunch of posts from my old Bolt journal. I’ve combined 2 months together here, as my entries for both were fairly short while I was busy with university work. So here you’ll find out about my latest exam result, more DVDs and music that I was buying, and which of our sitcoms were voted the best by the British public. I hope you enjoy!

Journal – January 2004

October 2020 Introduction:

We’ve made it to another year in my series of journal posts from the old Bolt social media site. And 2004 was a particularly significant one for me, with the conclusion of my university studies and my subsequent search for a job. But that’s all still to come, as we need to get through the first half of the year before we reach that new chapter in my life.

This month I stayed with a friend at Bournemouth University for a few days, continued my own studies at Exeter University including another exam, got addicted to another video game, and bought a few more DVDs. Plus there’s another top 100 list, for which I take no responsibility if you willingly explore the links and come away with any unwanted earworms. So let’s crack on with it, and I hope you enjoy!

Welcome to another instalment from my old Bolt journal, as we approach the halfway point in 2003. Here I’m getting ready for the summer, by taking my final exams in my second year at uni, socialising with friends, buying various DVDs including particularly good ones by Queen and Led Zeppelin, and getting hooked on the latest Grand Theft Auto game! So I hope you enjoy this latest selection from my past!

Here are some more extracts from my old Bolt journal. You know what to expect by now – university work, socialising, CDs, DVDs, gaming, TV, etc. This wasn’t a very eventful month, but I did share a couple of interesting top 100 lists, and my favourite moments from Children In Need, among other little bits and pieces. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – July-August 2002

July 2020 Introduction:

Here’s another selection of posts from my old Bolt journal. Being at home on my summer holiday from university, there wasn’t very much to write about, so I’ve combined 2 months in one post here as they were relatively short. There are still a few points of interest though, including a house invader, a fun charity event, a surprise from my university, my birthday, a bit more sport that caught my attention, and some more music and DVDs that I bought. So I hope you enjoy!
