DIARY

Notes about any interesting things that have happened during the course of my day or my general thoughts on random topics.

Why I don’t want the next Doctor to be female

07/07/2017

I’ve been having debates with many people about the prospect of the next Doctor in Doctor Who being female. Rather than keep repeating myself, I’m going to write my argument here. Yes, it’s plausible It has been established in the show that Time Lords can regenerate into different genders. It was hinted at in the classic era…

Is a tidy room always better?

26/08/2016

It’s my birthday tomorrow (woo!) so I’ve got a few friends coming over to my house and we’re going out for a meal. Since two of them have never been to my house before, I’ve made an effort and tidied my room. I don’t really tend to keep my room very tidy. It’s not so…

Ninja-Gentleman

23/08/2016

I met my friend Laura for lunch earlier and when it came to pay, I quickly handed the money to the cashier so that Laura couldn’t pay. She commented it was like ninja reflexes, which gave me an idea for a character. I present to you… Ninja-Gentleman Wherever there is a woman about to sit…

Photos from Jersey Battle of Flowers 2016

14/08/2016

I recently went to the Jersey Battle of Flowers 2016 with my Grandad. It was a amazing and colourful show, with impressive floats and entertaining dancers. As you’d expect, I took a lot of photos, but there’s going to be loads of photos online of the parade, so instead I’m going to share some of…

Tales from college

02/08/2016

I have so many anecdotes and stories from college that I often talk about with Mike or Gush, so I’ve decided to make a note of them in this article. Three A stars On the very first day of college, I was quite nervous because I didn’t know anyone and it was a big change.…

Tales from secondary school

02/08/2016

I often reminisce with Mike and Goodwin about stories from our secondary school days and I realised that I have so many anecdotes that I’ve never written down anywhere, so I’m going to use this article to keep a note of them. Lower your expectations I always enjoy making people laugh, but back in school…

Tales from primary school

02/08/2016

Mike and I often share anecdotes and stories from our primary school days before we knew each other and I realised that I have so many stories and memories that I’ve never written down anywhere, so I’m going to use this article to keep a note of them. No running! No shouting! No fun! My…

Like I’m living a teenage dream

17/04/2016

I saw someone had posted one of those online quizzes on Facebook earlier, you know the type that has about a dozen messages and when you put your details in it automatically generates one of them and you think it’s unique to you and post about it on Facebook. Well, the one I saw was what you’d…

Adele is a Grumbleweed

05/04/2016

Today I heard a song on the radio called When We Were Young by Adele. It caught my attention because I recognised the lyrics in the chorus. Why did I recognise them? Because I’d written them, that’s why! Have a listen to this bit of the song: Now, way back in 2014, I started writing…

Looking Back on 2015

31/12/2015

2015 has been a great year for me, one of the best, so since it’s near to an end, I’ve been thinking about all the things that have happened during the year – things that I’ve done, people I’ve met, places I’ve been – and I’m going to summarise it, mainly so I can look…

Why I’m not very good with compliments

05/12/2015

I have recently come to realise that I’m not very good with compliments – giving or receiving them. I guess it’s probably because of my Aspergers, but I’m very sceptical about compliments. Before I continue, this article isn’t intended for anyone in particular. It’s more for me to ‘hash it out’ so I can learn…

The Best Envelope Ever!

30/11/2015

Had to go to the hospital this morning. I’m not dying or anything, just had to pick up my new insoles. The appointment was at 9:40 but For some stupid reason I followed mother’s advice and got the taxi at 8:50 so I ended up there half an hour early. I queued up at reception…

Why I’m terrified of Timothy Spall

19/11/2015

For a long time now I’ve been writing up my dreams on this blog. However, there is one dream that I have neglected to mention. Usually when I have a dream, as soon as I wake up I make notes so that I don’t forget it. For the dream in question, I didn’t make any…

I’m on LinkedIn… apparently

19/10/2015

So I get an email today saying ‘Tim has endorsed you for a skill: illustrator’. Has he? That’s jolly nice of him. But I have a few questions. Firstly, who is Tim? I recognised his full name – which I’m not going to write here for security reasons – but I can’t remember where I…

How old do I really look?

07/10/2015

At the time of writing this, I’m 23, but not everyone seems to agree with me on that. 19 – Yesterday evening I was out walking the dog and a man stopped me to compliment my waistcoat and ask where I got it from. He said he wanted them to come back into fashion and…

Bury me with my uke

01/10/2015

I’ve thought about dying many times before. I don’t mean I’ve contemplated suicide, I mean I’ve thought about what I would do if I ever did die – not a lot I imagine. But before I die I will make sure there are things in place that will leave a little legacy and allow me…

Are my songs any good?

24/09/2015

When I first started writing songs, I never really played them to anyone other than Mike. It was more to entertain myself and that’s the way it’s always been; I write for me, I write what I think is funny or clever and if someone else enjoys it then that’s great. After a few years…

At The Doctors

28/08/2015

“What did you get for your birthday?” “A water infection.” That’s how I react to bad news, I just make a joke out of it. I’ve recently been urinating far too regularly, so this morning I went to the doctors to find out if there was something wrong. I had quite an interesting time there,…
