11 years it has taken the Leeds rhinos to go back to Wembley (granted it was being rebuilt in that time). I have seen the Rhinos lift every major trophy except 1, the challenge cup. Have a guess what day the challenge cup final is on, yep the same day as when i am at Leeds festival. I am upset and all that i won’t be able to go (the Challenge cup not Leeds Festival), but what can i do. I have already paid for the tickets, my tent, my beer, sleeping bag, etc. I have to go, guess there is worse places to be right. I have a few choices, first i could go to the festival and not watch the match and just have it recorded for when i come back home. Secondly i could try and find out if there is a place there that is showing the match at the festival (it is leeds playing after all). Or last i could go home for a few hours on the Saturday to watch the match. Not all that sure what to do guess I will end up just make the decision on the day.
Here is the line up;
Gonna level with you, I don’t like it all that much :'( there are some bands which should be good Queen of the stone age and Weezer. Arcade fire is the band I am most looking forward to, Blink should be good and there is few more. At least i get to see Muse (a band i really want to see) a week later.
Anyway I shall say my goodbye to you all for now and see you in a few days, where i will be back we a full review of the weekend action.
Months of nail biting has ended for thousands of A-level students today. For me personally, I did not get the slightest butterfly when I said my admin number out loud and not even the slightest tickle, as I got given the brown envelope. Nope i did not have a dry mouth. as I opened the envelope up and looked in at the contents. The reason why is because my teachers had already told me my results months ago and did not need them for Uni (see http://wp.me/psL0a-k). There were no surprise when i looked at the sheet that I had been given, they contained the results i was told I’d get months ago. I did get an A.B and a C, I am quite proud of the grades I got. Now if was off to Uni these grades should be enough, to get me to into a very nice average Uni out there with the course that I might want. Alas I am not, so I’m still looking for a job. Off out to celebrate my grades with everybody tonight, so that should be fun.
Tomorrow is the last regular home game of the season for the Leeds Rhinos, they are playing the Dragons. I am of to the match so hopefully they will win and be in good form going in to Wembley. Go Rhinos. You will notice as you read this blog, there will be lots of mentioned about the rugby league team Leeds Rhinos.
First off you would think after 3 blogs, i would have lots more to write, well it turns out i am not that interesting. So i could do a number of things. First i could go down the route of one James Dudley, and come up with semi comical blogs every couple of weeks. The problem with that is that i just don’t think i am funny enough for that.
I could also start posting some of my work for people to look at. But the problem with that is i could use this stuff in the future and having it available online could cause me some trouble. So i thought maybe i could write a some short stories exclusively for this blog, a story that i don’t think has much scope outside of the few pages it is on. Sounds like a plan!
Also why don’t i review some stuff, i read a lot why don’t i do a book review every now then. Some TV stuff as well, we will see. At least it should give me some scope to write more than a couple of blogs a month.
Leeds fest in a week, i have the early bird (get in a day early) so its gonna be a long experience. Last year was very fun so hopefully this year will be the same. Oh!… I also got some Muse tickets for old trafford cricket arena for the week after Leeds festival.
Last night mother nature put on a show for us. As last night there was a meteor shower that was having a showing above our house. But there one small problem street lamps. The light pollution and some cloud cover, meant that trying to find the meteors in the sky was an extremely hard task. After a while though the show started, the first one i saw was the best, a huge, long, bright white line streaked across the sky. Watching it must have been like being on a alien world, well it would have been if my conservatory wasn’t in the corner of my eye. 10 Minute later I had seen 6 more in the sky but non as big as the first, so after 20 minutes I went back in from the cold.
Leeds match tonight against Castleford. Good luck Rhinos.
Over the last month i have been searching for a job. I have decided that i won’t be going to uni this year, but i will not rule out going all together. So what do i do for a year, well I am trying to got get some experience in the whole working world. Well that harder said then done, after applying for countless jobs I have got nowhere. I’m not going to give, but i am now job seekers allowance. £51.55 a week not bad for doing nothing but going on the Internet, ey? The fact of the matter is, that by going every couple of week with the chavs, with the cocks and the odd nice person makes me uneasy. Not only this but not having a job depresses me, I am stuck at home with my dog bored out my of my mind. It’s not easy been unemployed, it does give me more time to write so it’s not all bad.
Actually thinking about it, it’s quite easy.
A quick introduction post. I don’t suppose that they will be that many reader of this blog, that does not matte. I feel I could do with a place to write my thoughts out loud. You could call it arrogance that I think any one would be interested in my thoughts and the day-to-day going on in my life (if I do go in to that).
Here’s a bit about me.
My name is Joel Hopkins.
I am 19 at the moment.
I am a writer that hopes to get successful.
Spelling and grammar is not my strong point.
This is my blog.
And just in case you don’t know what I look like here is a photo.
I am the one in the crotch.
I do honestly want to be a successful writer and be able make money from it. Doing something you love for a living, is anybody dream, right?
I write all kinds of things are started out at 14 just writing a stargate fan fiction. I have written a few screenplays that I am quite proud of; I may post some bits of them on here now and then. And right now I’m in the middle of writing a novel. That is It for I will hopefully keep up with this blog.
So wish me Luck
Oh and don’t be afraid to leave comments about how much of a saddo I am.
