I hate periods of uncreativity or any period where I feel I’m not involved with anything. I seem to have a muse that shifts between writing, artwork, music and games. If I catch the updrift at the right time, I end up with a bunch of songs, some art, a game or a bunch of blog posts.
Right now, I think the writing bug has come back, since the previous post I have written a few music reviews for the Warwick Boar and blog, but I feel I have some sort of duty to finish off my documentation of my year out. There’s still plenty to talk about, and plenty of photos to post.
In the meanwhile, despite not recording it, I’ve been doing a fair bit of art work with a borrowed graphics tablet, of which you can see some endeavours here or you can wait till I post the best bits later on this month. I also bought some acrylics and did a painting for my gran for Christmas, but as of yet no photo exists, that needs to be rectified…
I also plan on using one of the digital art pieces (it’ll probably be easy to guess which) for a little compilation of all the music I’ve accumulated in my ‘demos’ folder for the past year. Some you will have heard, some you most definitely haven’t, and all of it I can still listen to today and not cringe at. I’m calling it ‘A Winter Clean’ as I feel I need a new slate to start things off. I wrote a new song for the first time in what seems like an age today as well, hopefully in light of the fact that Afterburner have a charity gig in Robbins’ Well on the 26th and are entering the Battle of the Bands later on. It feels good to get the creative juices flowing once more.
And I say all this without even mentioning the fact that I hope to release a few games over the coming months, I’ve had all these ideas bubbling round my head I’m gonna burst if something doesn’t get done sooner nor later.
And a new website will have to be organised I guess… damn… it piles up…

The lecture period is over, and the time for revision has already begun. Seems weird seeing as only three months ago I was relieved at fighting the last lot of exams off yet I’m already back to the grindstone again.
Me and Loh were a bit lazy one evening and headed for a Malaysian take-out and came to chatting about his course, architecture. What immediately comes to mind when you think about architecture (don’t say you haven’t thought this) are drawings of buildings. I guess that’s what immediately came to mind when I was looking at courses over three years ago. If I’d actually looked into it, with hindsight I probably would’ve taken Architecture as a course. The course is so much more diverse than I ever expected, looking into Philosophy, Sociology, Finance and Psychology as well as expected areas of Art, Science and Technology. I never really thought about why I’ve chose Engineering other than I thought I’d be pretty good at it, which I guess has turned out to be mainly true. I’m not saying I’ve made the wrong decision, I just wonder sometimes what would’ve happened had I taken a different course.
Then again, the hideous workload I’ve seen him encumbered with is enough to shake my head of the idea and make glad that I’ve picked a course that still gives me a fair amount of breathing space for at least some parts of the year, whilst also leaving me time to explore all these other subjects at will rather than be forced upon them. I suppose if I’d taken another degree I’d probably be saying the same thing about Engineering… ahh well!
