I really need a hobby. Apart from photography and watching Dave on tv, I seem to have no hobbies anymore. I have aspirations – I’d love to go and see lots of music or go to hip pub or bars where there great musicians playing a live set in the corner but where you can hear yourself think above them. I want to go to see stand-up comics and live shows. However, whenever a band I like or something I want to see is on, I always seem to be in the wrong town at the time or that it’s quite expensive and none of my friends would want to go. It doesn’t help that most of my friends don’t share these aspirations.
I haven’t done much today. The guilty feeling that hang over me saying ‘you should be doing work/research/dissertation work’ is back. It disappeared over christmas – it was nice but a bit weird – knowing that I didnt have to be doing something else – I could go out and not think ‘oh dear, less time to be reading that text book’.
I went for a short walk just to the bottle bank and then round the park and took some photos. It’s quite warm here. Twas pissing it down this morning when I ran up to the postbox to post mum’s birthday card but it got brighter and drier this afternoon so I thought I’d make the most of it. I have just the one lecture tomorrow so I’m forced to leave the house for something. My plan is to go to the library straight after just for a while and try and sort out where I am, and maybe do some much needed notes on other modules. If it’s dry and not windy, I’m planning on walking down to the Hoe armed with camera and see if there are any sailing boats out. They make good pictures.
I’ve also been collecting good recipes of more interesting food to cook. As much as I love pasta, curry or toasties, sometimes you need a change. If anyone knows any good meals that aren’t too complicated, can go a long way and aren’t too expensive, drop me a comment. Oh and any good smoothie recipes much appreciated.
