Current Music: A mixture of different led zeppelin songs
Hi all

I've decided, I've never done lenty or new-years-resolutiony things, so I've decided that I want to do something now.
Things that I want to do:
* Become less shy, and more confident on the outside... as I seem to only be confident in the things which I am comfortable (and sometimes not even those).
* Make people feel like they can talk to me about anything.
* Become less hazey about the things that I believe in, I've always swung from side to side when it comes to things like religion.
* Give Maria a little more room, I'm always feeling like she thinks I croud her too much. At the same time I need to be less of a worry-guts when she goes out without me. I love her so much.

So thats that. If anyone has any suggestions it'd be great to hear them. Thank you so much.

Hmmm, so I am sitting here thinking about what to do. I've read some techy things (man I'm such a geek... but then I do kinda love it), and i've read a little about absinth, and i've talked to my cousin on msn for a while.... not sure what to do.

Daniel.

Been playing about with Ruby On Rails, really fantastically good... so much easier to develop web apps in Rails than in Java/JSP (and so much better than PHP)!!!!!!

Also been listening to the LugRadio podcasts ( http://www.lugradio.org/ ) they are so funny, and informative at the same time.

I've been waiting around to hear more from where i'll be working in the Summer, hopefully should hear from them soon, well definitely before the 5th February anyways. Oooh, can't wait :)

Fog

Its like walking into the fog,
Fog that is as dense like mud in water,
Like dark in light,
Its the life that we live, maybe,
The life that we'd like,
Like glue in our lubricant,
Walking into fog, into blindness,
Not knowing, nor never knowing,
Nor not desiring not knowing,
How-do live? and why-do not know?
Follow flow? Follow linearity?
So here we are, knowing behind,
Though not seeing behind,
Attempt to see forward, fail,
Fog. Mist, Steam, Cloud, and,
Walking into the unknown?

Jan. 16th, 2006 @ 11:28 am Trains are bad
I've decided that trains are bad. However they are useful, so i shouldn't complain.

When Matt is on Holiday I have to get up at 10 to 6 to get the train to Newbury! Oh well.

This morning I have been spending my time seeing JUnit tests fail.... hmmm *wonders how many people reading this knows what JUnit tests are* Its not very fun, its only moderately fun when you get the tests work with the functional code.

Oh for those who do not know, I am a Java/XML (and sometimes Ruby) programmer in my work experience year at Uni. (I am looking forward to going back to uni in september, and I am looking forward to this summer).

For the rest of today i hope to get all of the JUnit tests running, as well as the Java+SiteMesh HTML GUI. ... hhmmmmm, i am really looking forward to June.

Any Questions? :)

Hello All,

Just set up my own bulletin board for Oxford Brookes Students (mainly for Computing Students but anyone can join [including people on different subjects, lecturers and also anyone random]) - So if you want to please join, heres the site:

http://fleximetal.oxfordhost.co.uk/phpBB/index.php

Other things that have happened recently:
Maria has gone back home for a day :( She will be back tomorrow though but I still miss her so so much, she said she is getting me a valentines day pressie (cant wait to find out what it is).
It looks like me and matt have a bassist, now all we need is a drummer (if anyone knows a drummer in Oxford let me know) - as for a singer we still have Nancy (if she still wants to - and we got to hear her voice too).
Things have happened (dont know whether I have told you that I do have my new laptop now - twas a few weeks ago now).
Myself and Maria have a house - YAY! DANCE EVERYBODY DANCE! - Its a nice big house off cowley road, just for the two of us. Its going to be so good!
Bad news: I didnt get the job at software imaging. - So this weekend I am going to be sending me CV & covering letter to loads more companies to try to find somewhere - and I hopefully will - otherwise if i cant get a proper Work Experience job I'll have to start my final year and I'll be really broke and I'll have to get a proper part time job (which I'll find hard to do because I want to focus on my project in my final year!!!!).

erm,, cant think of anything else that has happened recently, so I shall tell; you about my day so far:
I awoke and got ready to go into the City centre with Maria, to see her off (back to MK), I didnt want to leave her but I had to... i miss her so much even though it has only been a few hours. Then I got on a U5 and got off just before tesco metro to walk back. I've not been doing much, sent off my CV to Lilly, then been modifying my board and trying to advertise it to both students and lecturers, and now I am doing this and after this I shall be doing my Java work. Later on I have to phone Endsleigh (and possibly Lakeside) to try to get my old laptop (or my old laptops data) back, not looking forward to that as I really do find it hard to talk about proper things - stupid lack of being able to describe properly on the phone.

Anyways, that'll do now for an entry, do join my Bulletin Board. And I shall speak/see/chat to you later.

Daniel.
