I've been awfully busy since Christmas, hence the lack of posts. Sorry about that.
I've had a great new year so far! I'm still having a great time at the day job with LeftLion/Nusic, to the point that most of the time it doesn't even feel like I'm working (in a good way).
Oh, yeah. One big thing did happen. Me and Sarah moved into our own flat.... OUR OWN BLOODY FLAT!!! Yeah, it sounds a bit weird when I write it down. I've been living here a month now, and I'm still getting my head around it. We both live in the city center now, in a very nice flat. We can't believe that we can afford such a nice place.
I won't bore you with the whole "I'm finding myself" rubbish, but I made my first bacon sandwich in the flat this morning, so that's progression! I miss my parents, of course I do. They're the reason I am who I am. But, it is nice to feel independent. Is it wrong if I get a little bit excited when a bill comes through the post? Probably.
What else? Well, me and Sarah went to see Taylor Swift in London, and that was an absolute nightmare. Long story short, Taylor but on a good performance, but the setlist was rubbish. As the gig finished, the lovely lady on the speakers decided to tell us that the Underground had gone on strike. This meant we had no way to get to our coach that was leaving in 45 minutes. Stranded in the wind and torrential rain outside the O2, I checked every hotel in the area; unless I wanted to pay around 900 quid, there were none available. The absolute legend that is Sarah's dad drove all the way to London from Nottingham to pick us up, which was incredibly kind of him. But, unfortunately it still meant me and Sarah were stuck outside in the pouring rain and wind for 4 more hours. So, we are trying to forget about this rather traumatic experience if we're being honest.
Oh, I've also seen both Chloe Howl and London Grammar live recently, and they put on two of the best shows I've seen in a long time. I wasn't a London Grammar fan before I went to the gig, but I left a convert. They gave an absolutely stunning live performance; and the vocalist Hannah Reid has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard. If you get the chance to see them live, don't hesitate!
Well, they're basically the main things that have happened in my life over the past month or two. 2014's shaping up to be a pretty good year so far, and I hope it carries on this way. I've got a lot of exciting things in the works over the next six months or so, and I'm excited to see where life takes me once I finish my Apprenticeship. For now though, I'm just enjoying life with Sarah.
P.S Here's a remix that I've been absolutely loving recently. So slick! -
