A year?

My last post it is 16 days off a year and previous to that it was months, I have had a busy year and I have totally neglected my blog.

I have started a new job with a local firm. From graduating university I waited 16 months for a job, in that time I applied for at least ten a month, that's over 160 jobs i applied for and only gained about 10 interviews, and there was nothing wrong with me, it was my lack of experience, but if a company wont take a chance, like the one i am now working for, how is anyone ever going to get the experience that they need?

But now I am happy I have a full time job. Now for thee next step, who knows what that will be!

New Year,

My next try at actually writing on this!

Lets see how it goes!

Thursday, 6 December 2012


Oh! last post 26th August, its now December! where has all this time gone? I have been working full time and have totally not been writing on here! The job that I have is just more hours from the summer job I had over my 4 month break from uni. I am very grateful that I have a job as it has enabled me to be able to be able to finally purchase my own car ( little 'Mags') and afford to live and not be stuck doing nothing. However I never saw my life of me being a pie seller, i wish so much more for myself! The days that I do work mean I now like to relax on my day off and voulenteering is not that easy in the history sector that I wish to be part of!

On a happier note its 18 more days til christmas! eeek! My shopping so far had been going excellently but my sister who is 18 is causing me the most problems as I just don't know what to get her! any ideas would be greatly taken!

So, today I got up and so totally should have been packing for my holiday on Sunday, but as normal i ended up watching How I Met Your Mother and One Tree Hill instead. After this it was time for work! FUN! nooo i don't mind it actually! I need some way to fund my dedication to shopping! I enjoyed watching people coming in really wet and watching the horrific rain-because if it was sunny I would be extremely jealous but working in the rain always seems that bit better!

I can't wait for the end of the euro's football talk and watching is getting extremely boring! but Thursday night is comedy night! I have a total love for 2 broke girls and Don't trust the bitch in apartment 23!

My day was sooo uninteresting- well it will be for anyone reading this because nothing of any excitement happened at all!

Reality tv < reality

For my post today I want to offer my view on the idea of reality T.V programmes and are they real?  Turn on the television around 10 at night and I am certain you will definitely find a pragramme that has something to do with reality or a version of it! Personally I have one guilty pleasure which is Keeping up With the Kardashians, I think the reason I like it is that the people are unknowingly funny with their ways, as they are so 'over the top' about everything. I bet they could make a big deal out of a cheese sandwich! 
Looking though papers during the week or through magazines there are people who have became apart of the tabloids due to programmes such as TOWIE, Geordie Shore and Jersey Shore! The people have done nothing that is actually worth while and the majority of the people are thick, or they act that way to gain views. They are making money by just being rich, on the whole they are not good examples to the people who are watching them. They have money to be able to waste and then people want to be like them so they go out and attempt to spend similar amounts of money to them. Is this really a good example to set? and it it right that for just acting in 'scripted reality' they are making a fortune? 
The term scripted reality itself suggests the ironic sense of all the programmes. The worst programme, which I admit i do watch sometimes, is 16 and pregnant and Teen Mom. The fact that there is numerous seasons and the amount of money that the people are making is in a way promoting teen pregnancy- but can you name a couple who have made it through?  
For now the path is scripted reality before this it was programmes like big brother that was big, what is going to be next? the lives of 'ordinary people'?

Proposed fine on Motorway driving!

Living in England the main roads of transport across the country is the motorway! Imagine the lanes are numbered 1,2,3 going left to right. Lane number 1 is the 'keep to the left' lane where you should remain unless you are overtaking. Number 2 lane is where you over take traffic going slower in lane 1 as well as being used to allow new cars merging onto the motorway from slip roads and can be used by cars towing things and lorries, lane 3 is only allowed to be used by cars and is called the 'fast lane' that can be used for over taking lanes 1 and 2.
The government has, in the past few days, proposed a new fine for middle lane (lane 2) hoggers. These are the people who basically never move from the middle lane. Due to this they can cause more problems than those who are going slower in the 1st lane. This is because it is illegal to undertake a car on the motorway and the cars cause a serious risk. I normally think that there are too many fines in place for motorists- do not even get me started on why people can't use a phone but can smoke! I believe that this is an extremely good idea that should be fined as I believe it will help to lower accidents on the motorway. 
The reason that people do this wrong however is that they lack proper guidance on what is the correct protocol on a motorway. I know this as I have only been passed for 5 years,  and my dad taught me well and I have frequently commuted on a motorway. On the other hand I have friends who are predominately drivers in the city and sometimes their motorway driving is scary, I obviously then become a passenger driver! But the issue here is that people such as my friends should be given adequate lessons within their driving lessons which people pay a small fortune for!
Does anyone else think it is a good idea or does someone else believe something else should be done?
