I did a foreign exchange in Spain, and one day involved not mixing with anyone from my school at all, just with my Spanish host family. The lack of familiar language was horrendous, I totally know what you mean - and that was only 24 hours! It's definitely not a silly thing.

Thanks guys :) I really wish I had someone I could talk to in Swedish on a daily basis.

Go freelance for a bit to gain experience. Great excuse to just go round burning stuff!

All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Gets boring as shit quickly I reckon - saw them testing some shit on Fake Britain...

Fume cupboard, object on a clamp, 400deg Celsius flame, held 6 inches from object, watch ease of ignition, smoke, flame colour & temperature (from infra-red reader). Lather, rinse, repeat.

Stop ruining the dream. I'd obviously making a bonfire with general products and setting fire to it and just standing and watching in admiration. :P

Opeth T-shirts always look so dingey and dark. The only ones that aren't are the Heritage ones...and they're hardly great

Tired eyes today, or to put it better: Eyes like pissholes in the snow. Someone would have thought I was out last night drinking rather than enjoying nearly my fourth week of sobriety. :(

Remembered it was halloween.

There's gonna be kids at the door and the parents are on holiday so there's no one to give them chocolate. Can't wait for the constant doorbell ringing.
