I got that boom boom pow, How the beat bang, boom,boom, pow- The Black Eyed Peas: Boom Boom Pow
That’s my new thing right there. I shall start of most of my blog posts with a relevant song lyric. Soon it will become so seamless you won’t notice anything other than the pleasant effect it has. And I assure that most lyrics will be somewhat more high brow than that but that one has relevance to today’s entry. Let’s get on with it then.
The Big Bournemouth Bonanza
Today myself and my friend Chris had planned to go on an open top bus tour of the local area. It turned out that last week’s lovely weather had stopped which should have been expected really seeing as though it’s April and weather like we were having was unusual. So in today’s overcast weather we once again headed to the seaside town of Bournemouth in an attempt to have some way of entertaining ourselves. We wandered around many a shop to begin with and as per usual I managed to find various items to spend my every-decreasing money on. The first was Volume 1 of The Walking Dead. I watched the first episode of the TV adaptation the other day and really liked it and my latest geeky inclinations have been towards comics and graphic novels so I couldn’t resist. Plus it was really cheap! I also finally found the DVD that has been top of my most wanted list for about a month: Lilo and Stich. I love that Disney movie and shall no doubt talk about it a bit more when I watch it.
After this shopping we had lunch and then we decided we would walk the mile along the beach to the district of Boscombe. Let’s get one thing straight: Boscombe is not a nice place. You sort of get that impression by the number of shady-looking shops there are as well a cheap shops like Poundland. It has become a hive of crime lately with a murder there just last week and is certainly the most dangerous place in the local area. So quite why myself and Chris decided it would be a good place to travel to I have no idea. We literally went there, looked at the odd shop, and the walked all the back again. But the most important fact was that we were two friends together having a laugh about anything and everything and that makes any day worthwhile (Though we had accidently worn matching hoodies so looked like the members of some gang with a rather odd uniform).
On return home, to my delight, I discovered that my 3DS had picked up another five people of Streetpass. That doubled the total number of Mii’s I had on it so I was pretty chuffed. This little feature of the 3DS is so fun and you really never know what to expect as you can bump into literally anyone on it, it’s so fun!
A large cup of coca-cola is rather tricky to balance on a McDonald’s tray, particularly when the restaurant is really busy and has people swarming all over it. The last thing you need is for some clumsy woman to bash you with your elbow so that the tray jerks violently forward. My poor cup of coke had little chance of surviving and me and Chris had a moment where reality turned into slow motion. We watched as the cup hurtled towards the ground, the lid popped of and the entire contents of the cup spilled across the McDonald’s floor. There was then a moment of silence as we stood still, mouths wide open with surprise with all the people on the nearby tables staring. The woman who bashed me apologised, which I satisfyingly ignored and we decided we should go and sit down. I couldn’t help but feel guilty but there really wasn’t anything I could have done. By the time we had finished and went to leave the mess had been cleaned up but our shoes stuck to the floor a little where the incident had occurred. It was a rather embarrassing event and I shall forever learn to clutch tightly to McDonald’s cups.
This wasn’t the most dramatic “explosion” that is connected to me that has happened recently. Apparently on Sunday an explosion happened in my university town of Winchester. It happened in the middle of the high street outside a clothing store. Fortunately no-one was injured and the only evidence of the event was some cracked paving slabs. The newspaper I read said that it was a gas explosion. But surely that shouldn’t happen? You would have thought gas pipes would be safer than that. So when the new term starts and I’m walking along the high street with the week’s shopping am I going to be blown apart? I don’t really fancy that.
My mind is messed up. I keep having random periods where I am really sad for no obvious reason and life just seems rather pointless. The last week though has been really good and I’ve enjoyed myself although right now I feel that I may be heading for a low period again. I don’t mean to be melodramatic but I genuinely think I may have bipolar. Mild bipolar anyway. So it’s about time to stop letting it get on top of me and actually attempt to make things better and get my life back to the amazing thing it could be. So when I return to uni I shall be booking an appointment with the uni counsellor. It’s worth a try at the very least to make me feel a bit happier and could actually make a massive difference. We shall have to see. But I am fed up of feeling like this.
