So I was reading back through my previous blog and it seems the last time I blogged was the last time I went to Switzerland and met Amy’s mum.
Wow, how so much has changed since the last time I came on here… I should come on here more often really, I aways like to have a little vent and chat some shit to myself. I only ever usually do this sort of thing when I have time on my hands and I have nothing better to do.
Prime example… Right now!! I am sat in Café Nero near Manchester Piccadilly station, I’d say in Manchester but I said that it was near the station ha ha. I am going snowboarding this weekend with my mate from York. I can’t wait. My mum got me a new snowboard for Christmas and some new gear for my birthday.
They’re awesome man!! I really love them!! I can’t wait to get on the slopes and test them all out. I’m a little scared about going this time… Last time we went we knew that we couldn’t board… But since then we have had a few lessons and are comfortable on a board which makes me more confident… When I get confident I tend to take it to the extremes and go too far! Going to the more challenging part of the slopes or going fast than I should. How else are we to push ourselves though?
My mate is bringing his GoPro HD camera that is barely the size of a pack of fags. It attaches to your clothes and has a remote so you can fix it to your helmet or jacket and press record and away it goes… Recording in glorious HD as we glide down the side of a mountain.
I have been practising editing videos… For we have now set up a group called “Heroes of the Joker Card”… Which in essence is a media and entertainment group of friends and make music, videos, events or anything else you could want us to do. It is still in the very early stages of development and we still have a lot of work to do to get it where we want to get it but it definitely has a lot of potential to be great. We have a YouTube channel with a couple of videos on it which I will link for you now…
I’ll also put our Facebook there if you want to venture over to it and give us a like. That way you will be able to keep in check and up-to-date with what we are up to
Go and check out the song that we have up or the music video that we made. Like I say, it is still in the very early stages and we still have a long way to go.
I usually dedicate part of this blog to write about how me and Amy are getting on… I wouldn’t fail to keep up the tradition in this blog too. We are great!! It has almost been 2 months since we made things official!! This has been the happiest time of my life!
My prospects have improved so much since I have got to know her. She makes me want to push myself and achieve the things that I know I am capable of yet have never really put the effort in to want them. I was on a childcare course until just after Christmas but I decided that maybe childcare wasn’t the correct route to go for me and I have now opted for Youth Work.
I know it’s not a massive change but this way, I can now get off the dole and finally get earning money as well as gaining experience as a volunteer in a youth club near my house. To be honest the thing I am most looking forward to is earning money!! Being able to stand on my own two feet and support myself and take Amy out and not worry about how much I am spending. Pay my own bills and not rely on my mum or anyone else for help.
This has bugged me for a long time. Not being able to support myself… It really has. But now since I have been with Amy, as much as it has been a slow transition to get where I want to go… I am finally getting there!! So in hindsight… Amy is the BEST thing that has ever happened to be… ever. She means so much to me. She is the only person that I have ever thought I could have a future with.
I haven’t ever really thought about the future… I tend to plan for the coming days or weeks. I never really think about the next few months or years. Now that I am with her that has changed… I turn 22 in a couple of weeks. I am getting on now, I don’t want to say I am getting old because I aren’t really, 22 is still a tender age. Granted it’s the back end of the age you can fuck things up and get away with it but 22 is still no age. Now I am thinking about the things I need to be doing to get myself a future sorted, a career sorted, a house, a family. Who knows what is around the corner… I don’t that’s for frigging certain!! All I do know is… I want Amy to be a part of it!!
Sitting in Café Nero at the minute and I have just glanced out of the window and saw the snow!! WOW!! It is insane how much it is coming down. When I came in it was snowing a little bit but not nearly as much as it is now!! My mum told me that it is nearly a foot deep in Zurich. She said that it has been snowing non stop for the past 4 days. I do love the snow… We have had quite a lot of it this year in the North-East… I got a little sick of it if I am totally honest. But I am well prepared for the sub-zero temperatures it will be in Switzerland for the few days I will be there.
Well I think I am signing off now. I am going for a surf on the World Wide Web and numb my brain with something instead of filling it with potentially valuable information. Jokes… I’m going to get another coffee and go and plug Heroes some more and talk about Amy somewhere ha ha. It’s what I do best!!
Peace out followers… Take care and I guess I will speak to you all very soon.
