Journal Archive – November-December 2003

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!

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.

Aniridia Day – My Shining Success Story

Happy Aniridia Day! 🙂

Today we’re celebrating people’s achievements and ambitions with Aniridia, as part of the Shining Success campaign, for which I edited a promo video I’m very proud of. There are also Facebook and Twitter pages for the day, where people are sharing their stories, photos and videos to mark the occasion, so please do check them out.

It’s already bringing people together with aniridia who have never met before, and helping to spread a positive message of positivity, support, solidarity and hope for the future. And if you want to find aniridia support groups, the links on my Disability Links page may help.

So this post is my contribution for the day, talking about my own achievements and ambitions, as someone living with aniridia. This is also available as a video as well.

Giving A Best Man Speech

In this post I want to write about being Best Man at my best friend’s wedding last year. I’ve also uploaded a video version, featuring photos of me in my grey suit on the day.

October 2020 Notes:

Welcome to another little collection of posts from my old Bolt journal, as I begin my third and final year at university, and mention quite a few DVDs and TV shows that were keeping me entertained. I hope you find things of interest in amongst it all!

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!

Journal – April 2003

September 2020 Notes:

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 – January-March 2003

September 2020 Notes:

Welcome to the next instalment of journal entries that I originally posted on the old social media website Bolt. We’re now into 2003, and I’ve combined the first few months here, as they weren’t particularly eventful and the entries are fairly short. I did continue to buy myself some nice things to keep myself entertained though, and I got some more results for my university work, plus there were a couple of notable events (one good, one not so good) that I felt were worth highlighting at the time. So I hope you enjoy looking through it all! Continue reading “Journal – January-March 2003”

Journal – December 2002

August 2020 Notes:

We’ve made it to the end of my first year of Bolt journal entries. Thank you to everyone that’s been reading them so far, I’m glad they’re proving entertaining. This month isn’t too eventful, but there is naturally lots of talk about Christmas, with one particular treat for myself that I was very excited to order! So I hope you enjoy as always!
