The man who did too much

I have made a bit of a big decision today. Well its been rumbling on for a while.

I am going to drop out of my MSc course. It has just been way too much extra stress. And to be honest it is not what I expected. I imagined working amongst some very clever people who would be excellent teachers with a passion for their subject. In reality it is a bunch of crusty old men delivering monotone presentations in front of power point presentations. I imagine their only focus was what they were going to have for dinner. I also realised If I am going to be taught my subject by having to write 4000 words on Information Systems in supermarkets or building spare part databases for garages. Then well I ... actually words fail me at that point, needless to say I have no use for that sort of knowledge..

I am busy doing a sort of life audit and trying to jettison all time wasting and non essential activities. SO that I can maybe get on with some interesting and creative work.

Oh I also got mini residency! more to follow on that one, but it is a bit exciting

writing computer games

That seems to be what I am doing a lot of these days! Not sure how that happened, when I was younger I wanted to be a sculptor.

Hey also I am in two minds over christmas, normally I hate it. Really hate it, I hate the way everyone gets swept up in the stupidity of buying shit for people just as an exercise in good form. BUT this year has been so shitty, possibly the shitty-est yet that I am sorely tempted to give in to it, just for one year. Maybe it will be fun.

Maybe I will get time to write some more music, still feeling frustraited about the lack of time and space to do that.

woke up on the wrong side of the bed today

and wrote a big insulting post about local indie bands, which I then erased and wrote more insults about laptop musicians, which I then erased (yet still feel the urge to add a point in brackets, THEY ARE DULLLLLLLLLLLL).

Then I found this

Im off to cry into my supernoodles about hat hair (as a nostalgic exercise)
