Life's fairly 'eh' for me. Nothing much to look forward to until my appreticeship starts in September. Ok, that's a lie, I have Blur in Hyde Park and the Beautiful Days Festival, but that's 4, maybe 5, days outta three months! I may get to be a lumber jack for my parents, which will be fun, but what I really want is to be able to live somewhere other than a stable for the summer, and maybe find a nice girl to have some summer fun with. How about yourself, Bas?

I'm getting into some new work, and spending way too much time going out with a social club I joined in September (almost 100 outings so far). I live alone, but have my own house and am going on a holiday weekend next week, which will be a nice change as I've not been away on a break for a long time.

@Lee J Haywood: Heh, holidays are good, I am doing the opposite in a way - I'm going to do some work for a weekend next Friday! Lol, feels like a holiday to me!

@Thelevellers: Heh, well I'll be staying in bed and breakfasts (2 of them - have to move my stuff in the morning!) but it's a walking weekend in the Peak District so there may not be all that much relaxing... at least I'll be with a large group, so it's a social thing.

I'm still a banking noob developer. I still get stressing when new things are thrown at me each day, and I'm expected to get them right. Overall it's cool, and I like the workplace a lot. This year I've been making an effort to attend to more social meetings. I'm very introverted, so I tend to suffer more than enjoy them, but I can't be a quasi-hermit all my life. Must build up my stats =)

I'm somewhat apprehensive of how I'll deal with the social aspect of next year... It's gonna be the first time moving somewhere entirely new ( I have flashed through Coventry once, late night/early morning), and I'm in two minds about whether to find a room in a shared house with unknowns (pros: cheaper, I meet at least them and their friends), or get a studio flat (pros: I don't have to live with people, who even whein I like them are trying!). And as I'll probably be mostly associating with people a fair bit younger I guess I'd be advised to find a good social club. Eh, making new friends - hard work! Maybe I'll go hermit?! :P Where's Bas go to?! :)

I am quite good, got an apartment in the city and have been stocking and maintaining it. Sharing it with three others bu tthe other two haven't shown up but once. The other guy I'm living with is an AE so its all cool. Relaxing but I'm pretty tired.

Moving is cool. You get to make new friends, and they don't have preconceptions about you, so any aspect of your personality you're not quite comfortable with is easier to change.

Yes, but its weird because my roommate has friends but I don't.

@Baslisks: I know that feeling! I'm too good at assuming the 'social retard' slot...
