Red Faced Men on Television

Today, I’ve decided that I’m too tired and ill to talk about anything of importance, so I’m going to talk about the disintegration of my perfect day. My morning started off with a very long perusal of the most awesome website in existence. If you’ve never heard of My Life is Average, then you really must at least glance at it. I almost missed my train to college I was having so much fun. It was nice sharing some of them with Mum, who was kindly dropping me off at the station before she went to work. For those of you who don’t know, MLIA is a collection of short anecdotes depicting how average a day the writer has had. In my opinion, the site should be renamed My Life is Awesome, considering the amount of bizarre, almost unbelievable events that happen. Ninjas, Harry Potter, Where’s Waldo and Dinosaurs are the common themes, although a large amount of people have used it to propose to their spouses. It’s a sweet idea.

After an uneventful train journey, I managed to put my ticket in the barrier upside down after sniggering at all of the people who were having problems with them previously. It rained during my 30 minute walk to the college. I didn’t mind. Once I got there I met up with the rest of my Roomset* group and we crammed into a small, hot room to discuss our ideas with the lecturer for the project; after an hour and a half we were still confused on whether we could realistically build our set and shoot it, but nobody wanted to go back in and talk to Jeff. They just wanted to moan about it, and panic, and ‘faff’ about. Thanks to my time in the Air Cadets, I’ve gained more confidence, and it irked me to see that they were complaining, but not doing anything about it. In the end I talked to Jeff again, and thankfully I cleared up what we could, and couldn’t do. Unfortunately, I have to go into college on my day off and see what our second shot will look like, and what we can include, and how the perspective will change when we remove one wall.

(I’m sorry that this isn’t making much sense, but I just wanted to get it all out. If you have any questions you can ask them in the comments.)

To cheer myself up after all that unnecessary stress, I decided to buy myself ‘My Bloody Valentine 3D’ for £8 in WH Smiths (£12 cheaper than it was in HMV), but I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. I’ll probably watch it tomorrow after I phone a couple of photographers about work experience. Once I got outside, it rained harder and I had to walk quickly to the station, which would have taken me about fifteen minutes, but instead took me seven. I then had to walk home in the pouring rain, but again I didn’t mind even though I was cold. (I like the rain, although I like it better when I’m inside tucked in bed.) I bought myself a healthy salad on the way up the road; got ready for Air Cadets; felt ill throughout the night, and just generally fed up of all the ‘bollocking’. And now I’m here, at home, curled up on the sofa next to the fire.

So yes, that was my day.
I’m sorry that this wasn’t a more interesting post, but as mentioned before I’m feeling uninspired, ill, tired and generally aggravated at the world around me.


* We’re doing a corridor scene (basic plan shown above). A woman runs from a sinister looking man at the end of the hall, a gun obvious in his hand. In the second shot, the roles have been reversed and she stands over his dead body, her shadow bleeding over him.
