Journal – April-May 2004

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

Journal – January-March 2002

2020 Introduction:

This is my first ever set of personal journal entries, from my first year at university. My university journals were¬†posted on an old social media site called Bolt, which no longer exists today,¬†but many features on sites like Facebook are similar to those that Bolt had. It introduced many teenagers and young adults to social media for the very first time, and I did make a few friends there, though we’ve long since lost touch. After leaving university I continued to keep journals privately, though I’m now sharing them here on this site.

So for this month, not only was it the first time I’d written anything about my life online, but it was also the first time I’d started keeping any sort of diary at all, hence the entries are quite short to begin with. I’ve also edited entries here where necessary to remove out of context references, protect privacy, etc. But I have added relevant links, photos and videos where possible.

It’s also worth noting that I did use assistive technology at university. I had magnification and speech software, a CCTV video magnifier, and a scanner with OCR software so I could scan in typed notes and pages from books. I don’t often use speech generally, but when I was at university and had a ton of stuff of read, it was essential. I had funding help from the Disabled Students Allowance as well. Plus I lived at home, as I was close enough to commute by train, which saved a huge amount on accommodation costs.

But anyway, let’s get on with the journal, which I hope you find of some curious interest and a bit of fun!
