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 – November-December 2004

December 2020 Introduction:

Here’s another instalment of edited entries from my old journal, bringing us to the end of 2004. At this point I was doing a work experience placement at my local council, having graduated from university earlier in the year. And I was continuing to enjoy my music and DVD purchases as usual.

Unfortunately, my entries for December were accidentally deleted, and it’s the only posts I’ve ever lost. I think I might have been combining journal files together at the start of 2005 and missed it off by mistake, but I can’t remember for sure. So in its place I just wrote my usual summary of the year, and briefly mentioned the key points for December at the end of it, along with another top 100 list from the month.

That anomaly aside, however, I hope you find these posts interesting!

Journal – October 2004

December 2020 Introduction:

Welcome to another set of extracts from my personal journal of days gone by. This month I started work experience for the first time since leaving university, with support from my Work Prep adviser Louise. There are naturally a lot of specific details about my work that I’ve had to edit out here, either for confidentiality or because they’ll make no sense out of context, but there’s still quite a bit here that will give you a good sense of how I got on. Plus I continued buying music and DVDs during the month of course. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – September 2004

December 2020 Introduction:

Welcome to another instalment of posts from my old journals. From this month onwards my journal was a private document on my PC, as I’d left the Boltย social media site. I didn’t write about myself online again until I started this blog in 2016.

However, I continued to write about the same topics, in the style that I’d become accustomed to. The only difference was the inclusion of more private information about me, my family, friends, work, etc, so I’ll have to edit out some of those things as we go along. But there will still be plenty for you to enjoy here.

This month was basically spent looking for work, getting hooked on a new PlayStation 2 game, and buying more DVDs and CDs. So it’s nowhere near as eventful as the previous month, but I hope you enjoy!

Journal – July 2004

November 2020 Introduction:

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!
