Created a playlist of rock songs from mostly 60's/70's.

Was initially thinking of 20 then it became 25 and ended up at 32 :D

How'd you know where to look? Was it when I mentioned I posted on /r/askhistorians?

I have nothing to hide anyway, my 90% of my activity right now is basically posts on /r/dnd

Successfully taught a class of 6 adults all at different skill levels.

They all fucking loved it.

They were all challenged at an appropriate level.

They all played music together.

I'm fucking awesome at this.

I found Jim once on Reddit. He guessed who I was instantly. Magical.

There are a limited number of options. He only replied to a relatively small handful of posts, and some can be fairly easily ruled out. That doesn't leave many alternatives.

I finally have a job interview! It's with the place that Ben is convinced makes dodgy Japanese porn but they are more than likely really a shipping company :P

Went to babysit my cousin - turns out he's already in bed so the hardest part's already done. Now I get to use his Lego and watch a massive telly with two cats for the next three hours.

Hahahaha, niiice

I bet there's actually some pretty good money to be made in that. Even better, you could work on a laptop or something while you were there so you could make money while making money.

With cats.



MMH: Had a career disaster this week that's set me back at least a year, but I think I have a plan to move forwards. First group sessions went well, Krav was good tonight, learnt part of a bassoon concerto, working out is going well and decided I'm having lots of lie ins this week. Because I can :D

* Get the keys to my one bedroom flat on the 11th of March.
* New monitor lizard should arrive next week.
* Unconditional offers from UCAS for both Live Sound Engineering and Music Production (not sure which to go for but i put off Uni for 5 years now so it's time for a change)

Kinda worried about the flat though i love my own space and often spend days at a time not talking to humans but i worry that so much time alone might not be healthy because i'm a real recluse in real life, i don't like leaving the house too much and i really dislike letting outsiders into my personal territory so i think it could make me a lot worse. I still go out to gigs, festivals and i'll be at Uni next year but i don't think it's quite the same thing. I guess i'll find out.
