Activity


Something has been bothering me somewhat as of late, more and more high end design is being created with perhaps a bit too much minimalism for my tastes, a blank slate is what is to be desired, so that nothing distracts you from the experience you are supposed to have, nothing in the way of its potential. Sounds nice like that, I'm talking touchscreens, the 'magic trackpad', kinect (not K'nex, which is still awesome), our bastard hob www.google.co.uk/products/cata… . All this plastic, glass, clean lines and shapes, and dare i say it? - The focus on the digital.

I've grown out of the habit now but when i was younger i was one of these people who used to run my hand along whatever i was walking past, tree, grass, building etc, i like that, i enjoy how stuff feels, and it worries me somewhat that design seems to be veering away from tactility. It may not be as stylish, efficient or pratical but i do enjoy the use of all my senses from time to time.

Side note: Toy story 3 is fantastic, thank god for the blokes at pixar.

So, how is life Adam? :) Have I missed something in the last months?

Lets see... Damn, really havnt spoke to you in a while have I?

To be honest quite a lot of my time this year I've spent being very, very boring and directionless, so not many tales to tell i'm afraid, but here goes :)
.
School finished at last as I finished my exams with some decent passing grades. I got together with someone and went on holiday with her down at the coast which was great :)
Went and saw, what to me was, an enormous concert of 65,000 people or so; which was louder and angrier than anything I'd ever seen XD.
I went to a few conventions with some friends, which led to the strange scenario of getting a thinly disguised bastard sword through the London train system XD.
My family went on holiday for 3 weeks leaving me to look after myself, the house and anyone who came over, which was a hell of an experience for better or worse.
And finally and most recently me and the aforementioned girlfriend broke up, which has be feeling a bit down at the moment, but I'll be fine.

How have things been for you?

Nice to see ya again :)

Nice to see you to! haha. I havn't been active here for a while. Again. Couldn't find enough time to answer and update things. But now I'm finally here:) Again.

Wow, it sounds like you've had a mostly nice time, with lots of new experiences. I'm sorry to hear about the breakup. :( Hopefully you'll be feeling alright soon..
But wow, 65 000 people? That is about six times my municipality! I can't imagine that much people at the same time! Was it some band I know about or something?

I have no idea of how I spent this summer. I know I went to Norway for a one day trip. Love Norway. Norwegian is such a charming language. Sounds like they are very happy all the time. And then I know I had some nice time in the Midsummer celebrations, with family and old friends. But the remaining pieces of the summer are gone. Probably I spent most of my time in bed, trying to recover from the last rough time in school. And the rest of the time i spent on the shooting range. :D And most important of all, I almost forgot, I got my drivers licence!:dance: The relief is unbelievable..

Woo! :)

6 times? Wow, well that helps me appreciate the sight, the area we were in was a sort of outdoor arena and by the end of the night it was basically just people shoulder to shoulder as far as you could see, craaazy. It was a gig for the Prodigy, but there were a lot of supporting acts as well. Mostly stuff that I don't normally listen to actually but I went with friends and thought it was awesome nevertheless :).

I'll leave the other reply for asking about school :p. Wow you went to a shooting range? Didn't see that coming. What sort of guns did you fire, and are you any good? :). And Congrats on the driving licence! I'm still doing my lessons so I'm quite envious right now, enjoy the freedom anyway :)

No, i only sent the message yesterday :P I meant this weekend, we should go and see her. I went to the apartment the other day and...yeah. I don't know if you know where this is, but it's near North Row, near the city centre - like, right opposite the centre??...yeeeahhh, it's there, i'm afraid. I don't want to appear snobbish or whatever, but it really is extraordinary - has to be seen to be believed!!!

Put it this way - when i got back from there, the first thing i did was apologise to my mum (we'd been arguing that morning) and made her promise not to throw me out the house.

When you and i and Kathryn get together for psych revision (when are we planning that btw? i sort of need to know soonish - i'm pretty busy this holiday), do you want me to bring you a copy of the notes i'm making? You're retaking the Research Methods aren't you? I'm doing a hench set of notes on that topic - sort of like a booklet, and if you would like a copy, i'd be happy to oblige. Just lemme know :)

I'm retaking the studies paper actually but i'll have a look through anyway if they're short, could still help in either my current year's exam or maybe one of the essay questions at the end of the paper, plus its just generally interesting seeing how people do and interpret the same stuff differently :). And errr we've made no plans so far (can lara come too? she aced that damn test the cheeky thing :p) so when are you free?

incandescent-smile Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2009
Okay, i'll bring my notes along with me when we have it. I'm probably free most days after the big two-five, except the 27th, and new years eve/day. Lara should definately come! She's brilliant at psychology - we should all just sit around her and try to absorb her psychology-acing aura.

You said you were at the centre today? Damn, are you mad?! Probably no worse than Londinium today, i suppose - the underground was packed, naturally. It wouldn't have been so bad, but i was squished up right next to a really big German guy for about five stops O_o I love going on the underground usually though - i like people watching :) You get a great variety of weirdos on the London underground.

I went with my family to the christmas display at Hyde Park - it snowed like crazy, we all got really cold and wet, but it was fun - many a lol to be had and innuendoes galore with Zuckernuss und Wurst. They also had mulled cider, which was very nice :)
