First Post!

Hmm, well having been goaded into starting one of these things, I may as well say something.

Those of you that suggested I start this thing probably haven't known me long enough to know about the causes of what's been going on in my life over the last month or so, so I may as well fill you in. About a month ago, life seemed good, I had a girlfriend, and the rest of my life was fairly well in order.

Then everything starts going wrong, My house for next year falls through, we had been told by the landlord that he didn't mind us staying on where we were living this year, then, about a month ago now, I get a text message from one of my house mates, which told me that nope, we couldn't stay there after all, our landlord had been "reminded" that according to a contract he signed when he bought the place, it was through one of these housing association things, students weren't allowed to stay there. We found it a little strange since students have been living there for the past 3 years, but, hey. So, no house.

I then spend the next weekend with my girlfriend, the Saturday we go to France for a day trip with her old secondary school. It's a really nice day everything seems to be going well. The Sunday was a nice quiet day spent together. Then I come back to Cambridge on the Monday morning as she goes off to work.

On Tuesday, I get an email from her entitled "The hardest email I've ever had to write", you guessed it, my life was on the way down hill, I'd just been dumped, over email, by the eubiquitous "You deserve someone who can love you more" line. For the next couple of weeks I felt kinda crap, strangly enough. Being in Cambridge with my parents, not that many of my friends are around. The closest I've got are my friends on Anarres, a mud. Of course it's exam results time, and the way my life had been going I was expecting to have failed and be kicked of my degree, pesemistic as I was feeling at the time.

Fortuntly this is when my life begins to turn around. My exam results finally arrive, and I hadn't failed any of my exams after all. My average was only 45%, a 3rd, but to be honest I don't care, I'm still on the BEng course. A couple of days later I get a phone call from Matt, he's found a house. I now have somewhere to live as well.

So the last week and a half has been quite good really. Snow and Koresh, two Dutch people who also hide on Anarres, came up to Cambridge as part of a visit to the UK. Then, yesterday, yet more Anarres bods come up to Cambridge, Ali, Marna, Bleep, ermintrude, and a load of their friends. We spent the afternoon punting up the Cam, most of them jumped in, for some strange reason, I end up falling in. Mobile phones don't appear to like the Cam. I finally got home somewhere around 7 this morning, having been signed up to LiveJournal at some wierd hour this morning. Woke up about 2 hours ago. Possibly one of the best nights sleep I've had in ages.

So, why's my mood wierd, life's been quite good recently. I just got an email from Julia (my ex). How the hell do I reply? At least seeing the email doesn't hurt like seeing the mail folder in Evolution was for the first couple of weeks.

Well I've written in thus thing now, let's see what happens.
