Journal Archive – July 2004

This latest batch of posts from my old Bolt journal marks a significant moment in my life, as I graduated from university and started looking for work. Plus there are the usual mentions of DVDs and music that I’ve continued to buy, and one or two other things that caught my attention. So I hope you enjoy!

Note: Each time I publish a new post from my archive, the previous post is backdated to the year it was originally written, so my blog remains tidy and chronological. You can see all the archive posts together by visiting the Journal Archive category.

Journal – June 2004

November 2020 Notes:

Here’s another selection of posts from my old Bolt journal. After 3 busy years, this was my last month of exams for my Accounting & Finance course at university. Euro 2004 was also getting everyone excited, and I found another top 100 list that I wanted to share. So I hope you enjoy going through this latest set of entries!

Journal – April-May 2004

November 2020 Notes:

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 Notes:

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 Notes:

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!

Journal – November-December 2003

October 2020 Notes:

We’ve made it to the end of my second year of Bolt journal entries. I figured I may as well combine the last 2 months of the year, as I didn’t write a lot for November. As usual I talk about university, the latest DVDs I’ve been buying and the TV I’ve been enjoying. Plus there’s another top 100 list and a few of the stranger news stories that caught my attention, and of course there’s  Christmas and a brief review of the year. So I hope you enjoy!

October 2020 Notes:

Journal – July-September 2003

October 2020 Notes:

Here’s another batch of posts from my old Bolt journal. Thank you as always if you’re still reading these!

We’re now entering the second half of 2003, and with another year of university complete, I didn’t end up writing a huge amount over the quiet summer holiday. So I’ve combined all 3 months together, in which I mention the outcome of my second year at university, a college reunion, other meetings with friends, the music I was enjoying, my birthday, and some of the stranger news stories that caught my eye. I hope you enjoy!

Journal – June 2003

September 2020 Notes:

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!

Journal – May 2003

September 2020 Notes:

Here we go again, with another bundle of journal posts I had on the old Bolt site. My time was mainly spent revising for my upcoming exams, but I found time to write about other things too, including an IQ test on TV, the most recent Bond film, a list of the worst Britons, and that infamous Eurovision performance that earned the UK “nul points”. So I hope you enjoy reliving some more of the past with me!
