Journal – April 2003

September 2020 Introduction:

It’s throwback time again, with another clutch of entries from my journal on the old Bolt site. This was a pretty quiet month, as I was at home on my spring holiday from university for most of it, revising hard for the upcoming exams. But i did enjoy a little bit of socialising, we had more issues with the kids playing outside our house, and the nation was gripped by footage from the UK’s most famous gameshow scandal. So there were a few interesting bits and pieces to mention. I hope you enjoy!

Journal – June 2002

July 2020 Introduction:

Here we go again, with another month’s worth of entries from my journal on the old social media site Bolt. People seem to be enjoying these, and you’ll notice that my entries have got much longer here. so I hope they continue to interest you. It’s fun for me looking back at them.

I’m not a football fan in general, but I do like to support our country in the World Cup, so it does get mentioned a lot this month. But there’s also the special Golden Jubilee concert for the Queen, socialising with friends, my final exams from my first year at university, and more purchases of music, videos and DVDs. So there’s quite a bit to get through here.

On the university front, it’s worth clarifying that I didn’t stay in student accommodation on site. I lived close enough to commute by train. So if you’re wondering why I didn’t just wander across campus to get some results immediately, that was why – I wasn’t there. So I wasn’t going to catch a train just to look at one result. It was more worthwhile to wait until all of my results were ready, or if I was meeting a friend in the vicinity.

It’s also interesting to see that I’m still buying a mixture of VHS videos and DVD discs at this point, as not everything I wanted was available on DVD back then. So this was a bit of a transition period, gradually moving from one format to the other where possible.

Anyway, with apologies for all the football mentions – or soccer for those of you across the pond – here’s how things went for me in June 2002. I hope you enjoy!
