Not being able to think

I once read that if you struggle to write, then you write about not being able to write and then before you know it you are writing again. Who da thunk it. Now I have a topic, i’m now able to write again!

My new job started this week, it’s gone good so far.It’s just been a busy and strange week. So this means I have not had all that much time do what I love, writing. I did start a new short story last week but not made any progress since last Monday. I had hoped that this weekend; would be one of lot’s and lot’s of writing. However then I remembered that it is the rugby league, millennium magic weekend (so 7 matches in two days).  Not all that much writing getting done then :(  but at least i can watch some proper sport, cricket was good for a while and american football is fun but it is just was not cutting it for me any more. I need to get some writing done  soon though.

One more thing; last weekend, Sunday. I went to see the band hurts (you remember me saying so),  they were amazing. They are fast becoming one of my favourite bands. I would also guess that they would be in my top 5 live bands (maybe watch out for something like that at the end of the month). They played a few song I have never heard before, looked up these songs up on the internet and I learned they were the B-sides to the singles. Two of theses have become my favorite hurts songs.
The first mother nature. It is a hunting song, that is very catchy

The next one is the song that they named their album after or maybe visa-versa or maybe it’s just a strange coincidence. I do find it strange that this song is not on the album though. Happiness a catchy song, with a slight epic quality to it.

Thats all for now. Might get another post in before the end of the week.

How you found my blog!

Over the last half a year there have been a few search terms that made me raise an eye brow (or two).

Lets have a look at some of these search terms that found my blog shall we.

Some such as
“The forever war” are quite easy to understand how it found my blog. A large 86 people found my blog this way.
Many go in the vain of this, lot of my top 5 https://joelhopkins.wordpress.com/category/top-5/ will generate a lot search hits.

Some may be a little more strange though; such as
“eddie murphy i can smell it” very strange; two people search that nice little term.
Or maybe
“testimony of rocker who got made a deal with satan digging his hands in the dirt for a career in music then got saved”
which also had two views.

Another which had me slightly worried was the “chinese teanager groups” okay I could say how that might look a little paedophile like, but I won’t and just say thanks to whoever viewed my blog.
“biffy trousers” is another strange one.

And i think all us lads can agree on this one guys “girlfriend cries gets upset 6 months”  damn them they take a-hell of a long time to get over things.

“gay sting”  or “Sting Gay” are other search term i can understand after this photo i posted a little while back.

Such a Gay film

“dad’s” + “leave a comment” this one makes does not really make much sense. “evil gas mask man” is a good one.

What about “here come i my name is joell thers no knowledge but i know it” clearly not true at all and bad spelling to boot.

There is a few other strange ones. But they are some which are down right crazy. Which makes me question the content I put on this blog if people search for these term and it finds me.
“mature lesbo fistin” Wow just wow!

That is not it though this next term has found me 5 times and i’m sure that will be increased as i have posted it on here.
“bondage gay pissing” lovely just lovely.

I will leave you with this little gem
“why does my butt sweat when i get horny”

Other news of note

Tomorrow i go to see one of my new favourites bands, Hurts. I can’t wait!
Then the day after that I start my new Job it’s make me feel and think, nervous, excited and that  I want money.

Got a job!

Yep I finally got a job, it does not start till February. This is great because it gives me time to find out if I get another job that I have an interview for, which does pay better and have better prospects.

I have also gotten my writing “mind zone” back just hours after posting here that I could not find it. Wish it always worked that way!

A question pondered by many of us, is what happens when two of your favourite band collide? Not many of us will have that chance to see unless you are lucky and the form a super band. I’m very lucky to have seen this video of Tom Chaplin from Keane and Queen (well the remainder of them) sing it “it’s a hard life”

It all comes at once……………..

God i’m soo tired so just a quicky ;).

Made a lot of progress on the job front so far this week. Lots of interviews gone and coming up so hopefully with in the next few week I could have a job.

I feel so unproductive, I can’t write a proper blog, I can’t write period at the moment. I have lot’s of idea just (yeah just) writing them down at the moment.

That is all for today and probably this week unless i find my groove again soon.

Bye bye

Don’t worry I am not stopping this blog.

On Saturday we had a good bye meal for my sister who is off travelling on Thursday (leaving Wednesday to her travelling buddy house). We went to the Old Mill restaurant outside Huddersfield. It was a nice meal had some steak in terikia source for my main little chewy but nice. I will stop there on the food i don’t want it to turn it a food review blog, although i’m sure somewhere down the line it will end up being one, so don’t quote me on this.
So yeah my sister is going travelling. She is going for 3 months and seeing loads and loads of Asia she starts off in China. Her start of the trip is the very similer to my school trip to China that I did 2 1/2 years ago when i visited Beijing, Shanghi and Xi’an just in a different order.

China

Me, just in my casual clothes.

I hope she has a grand time in Asia, i’m sure she will and take away a lot of memories, I know I did from just 2 weeks.

Finally got somewhere on the job front, with a phone interview at william hill in leeds apparently I may get spat in the face hopefully something will come from it. Also had a driving lesson today that was my 6th lesson and i am doing alright at the moment can’t say i am loving at the moment probably still a bit  nervous.
Reading another Frank Herbert book at the moment ‘The White Plague’ just another book to put on the pile of apocalypse books which i seem to have read a lot of, what does that tell you about me.
