Gettin’ busy in here

I am getting ‘personal’ now.

New students are coming very soon, and I am more than happy to welcome them.They are going to put a big full stop to my idleness, which is good and I don’t think I can thank them enough.


School isn’t going to start until September 21st, but I am gathering more strength and willpower at the mean time. University life part three. Should improve my efficiency really, and my health. Thinking of going to school walking instead of making use of my Unirider. It will take 20-25 minutes, which somehow satisfies the amount of minimum time needed to be spent on exercising per day.

Some interesting events coming to Manchester, to my heartache they will all be during my ‘busy hours’. Hope to be able to squeeze in somehow.
