First blog in a million years

So, it’s been a while since i’ve blogged. Mainly because my life is a mad rush between my various activities. Term has been a blur so far with Chicago, Free Concert, Copa submissions, Copa rehearsals, ILYYPNC rehearsals, Tim reynish workshop, socials, going to see awful awful productions of beauty and the beast, chemistry labs, chemistry lectures…

I’m mainly writing at the moment to complain about the prohibative cost of applying for med school!. So far I’ve spent

UKCAT Exam: £60
MSAT Exam: £95
GAMSAT Exam: £235
Book to help me not fail: £20

Total: £410!!!!!


I don’t have that kind of money :’( So how the hell are people supposed to afford it who dont have the luxury of a steady job? By selling themselves on the streets thats how.

I bet if you took a survey of most homeless people it’s because they spent all their money on med school exams. Thank the lord only two of my choices require them or i’d have to remortgage the house – THAT I DONT HAVE!

Anyway i’m off to campus, possibly to cry.

Awesome week

Have had such a brilliant week.Was working in Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge to get a taste of working for the NHS. Simply the most interesting and fun week at work i’ve ever had. Met so many really nice people and learned so much! I was consistently impressed with the hard working people in the hospital and their general attitude was brilliant, far away from the reports of NHS staff you hear about in the news certainly!

This was topped off with an awesome weekend visiting Sam (and, briefly, Joe and Nikki) in Southampton for the weekend. Was good to see Sam, of course, and Southampton is a very cool place indeed. This was all helped by the fantastic weather all week and weekend! Woooo

Slight downer in that my £500 screen died out of warranty, but shit happens! No point complaining about it.

Well Edinburgh was absolutely amazing, i’ve never had such a good 2 weeks (well maybe i have, but not recently). Spent lots of time with good friends, made new friends, saw lots of good shows, spent alot of money (but who cares cos I got paid loooooooooaaaaaaddddssssss of money by work). Also saw some total rubbish shows, new motto in life: DO NOT SEE TOMMY, IT IS RUBBISH. Have also developed a hatred of the cast of a certain show from a certain London University, mainly cos they were rubbish (even if one and a half of them was fit) but also cos they broke mine and matts bases and they stole our stuff!! On top of that they tried to kill Joe by sabotaging a barrier that he almost fell off and died.

In other news i’m working in a hospital from Monday… scary core…. but I’m looking forward to it lots! Also Nip/Tuck is awesome, though not as good as House obviously.

Durk Durk Allah

I'm sure you're all aware of the exciting airport–related events of the past few days and, frankly, i wasn't looking forward to my Edinburgh trip today given the news reports.

After finding my flight reinstated after having been cancelled on thursday I turned up to the airport at 08:00 this morning (Three hours before my flight is due to leave) clutching my polythene bag containing passport, several pointed sticks and a few other essentials. Arrived at the check in desk – was checked in within 5 minutes.

Then approached the QUEUE o' DOOM for security. It was long it was tiring it was like it would never end.

It took 10 minutes. Including the time it took to be thoroughly felt up by a security guard and to have my shoes x–rayed (hopefully that might kill of some of the smell)

Soooo here i am left with just under 2 hours (having spent £1000 at the bookshop and £several thousand and Starbucks). Someone is now shouting Geoff across the terminal… hope thats not for me.

Interestingly, web access in the UK is 10p a minute (compared to the appoximately 1p a year it cost me from Thailand/Laos!) and involves using some dodgy ass "i am ripping off your bank details now" style interface. And i can't just wirelessly use my laptop cos, well, it's checked in my baggage along with all my other worldly possesions (have fun stealing my broken iPod, corrupt baggage handlers… MUAHAHAHAHAHA)

Anyway must go, running out of time. AGH

Fantasies Come True!

Picture the scene.

Geoff dons his shades with manly skill, revs the engine as he screeches away from the traffic lights, girls twist around to check out who this badboy is… so what comes blaring out of the car stereo? The Chain by Fleetwood Mac? No. Born To Be Wild? No. Some kind of awesome hard rock? No.

Spring From The Four Seasons?

My Life Summed Up In A Webpage

My Life

One Vision

OK So i'm never going to pull anyone again in my whole life, and OK so i've got crap marks in all my exams, and OK my hair was better short but do you know what… i don't care because


Now thats what i'm talking about….

Also I succeeded in passing the WO conductor review, albeit by the skin of my teeth with Sam battling against the hundreds of people trying desperately to cast me from wind orchestra and have me burned on some kind of stake.

Oh and We Will Rock You Is F**KING AWESOME – Hywel is the most amazing guy ever in the world ever and oh my god he's so amazing!
