New job!

Posted 10th March 2012 by Angus

Finally have a job! I recently aquired employment at a marketing and communications company as part of a news team. The hourly rate is above minimum and I have the chance to interview and report on a wide variety of news items.

Culture Shock

Posted 30th January 2012 by Angus

A poem I wrote over four years ago. It has been a while snce my last blog and I apologise for the delay. It has been an exhausting month and I have barely had time to even catch my breath! But here is something I recently found on my desktop; a poem I wrote over […]

2012 is upon us

Posted 14th January 2012 by Angus

Apologies for the delay in this post. I would like to apologise for the lateness of this post. A combination of internet problems and outside commitments prevented me from touching a keyboard but now I’m back. January has seen me return to my course and reignite my search for a job but money hasn’t really […]

How I sometimes feel about life. For the most part, i couldn’t be happier. I have a beautiful girlfriend, my course is going great and it’s almost Christmas. But, even the, there is sometimes a gap; a feeling that maybe there is something I’m missing from completing this perfect picture.

The anticipation of Christmas. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love Christmas. I’m never in it for the religion or the decorations but for the atmosphere. When I think fo Christmas I think of mystery and wonder. It is a time that the Victorians traditionally told ghost stories on and a time when […]

My birthday!

Posted 30th November 2011 by Angus

My birthday celebrations! Today, I celebrated my birthday. My family was there, my girlfriend was there as was my best friend. I can’t even begin to describe my joy and elation. Today is a day I will never forget.

Exhausted: the sequel!

Posted 27th November 2011 by Angus

Another week of labour intensive scheduling. A lot of assignments had to be handed in this week so you can expect plenty of last minute running around to meet deadlines! Hence why this entry is very short and very late. But the pile is slowly diminishing into single A4 pages and essays that are three-quarters […]

The Woods

Posted 16th November 2011 by Angus

Where my mind is at. I dreamed of woods when I was a child. I dreamed of forests, miles upon miles of seamless tree lines with the floor carpeted in pine cones. This was my escape, this was the place  wanted to be alone, cut off from the grime and noise of civilisation as well […]

A friend in need

Posted 7th November 2011 by Angus

Using my experiences with depression to help a friend. My best friend told me about the rough time he was going through, about the lack of motivation and direction he seemed to be going through recently. He proclaimed a certain jealousy towards me, how I “had everything and he had nothing”. And, in an instant, […]


Posted 28th October 2011 by Angus

Looking back over the last few weeks. It’s been a very busy few weeks hence the large period of time between this blog and the last. Assignments are due in and I’ve just entered into another relationship. What is a man to do!

Returning to the scene of the…

Posted 13th October 2011 by Angus

Bringing closure to a lifetime of grief… I creep over bracken and twisted arms of jagged nettles, the clearing in full view up ahead. It is here that oblivion almost came too soon, that night when I crawled through a bush in order to reach the trees and end it all.  I have returned here […]

Distractions, distracions…

Posted 5th October 2011 by Angus

Life and its distractions… It’s been a while since my last entry as my course keeps throwing up new projects for me to do. This is really the first chance I’ve gotten to sit down and, believe me, it’s a rest well and truly appreciated! It’s incredible how indulging in your passion can distract you […]

Exhausted and excited

Posted 27th September 2011 by Angus

So very tired but what a day! Today was my first day back at University and, boy, I have never been so shattered! To see everyone again was an incredible feeling and the opportunities presented to us this year are so exciting, I don’t know what to choose first.

Things I would have missed…

Posted 19th September 2011 by Angus

A list of things that I would have missed had I been dead and the philosophy of how I live my life now. My cousin turned four years old today. We purchased for him a walkie-talkie in the shape of Spiderman to celebrate the occasion. He loved it so much that it was an extra […]

This is Halloween!

Posted 18th September 2011 by Angus

My favourite time of year! It’s no understatement when I say that I love Halloween! Everything good in life happens for me around this special time of year. My birthday, Halloween parties, get togethers with friends and the celebration of the horror genre – my all time favourite genre – it’s fantastic! Christmas maybe the […]

First ever blog!

Posted 15th September 2011 by Angus

My first blog! Here it is. My first blog! This one is a bit late unfortunately but I will keep up to date in the next months so hopefully this is the first and last time this happens.
