Constant change to everything

I got all my uni work to a good point were I just need to add a few bits then it would be done, but once again I have started to mess with it and change the way I did it...
In everything in life I do this stupid thing were I change things because i am never happy with the work I do...

I think this I why I never started vlogging because I would always be  harshly critical about the end result... So I am going to do some uni work over the next few days mainly because I am bored at the monent... Also I am going to re-edit my sound scape for my creative sound project in January so I am going to have fun playing on Pro Tools SE, I might upload it and see what the people of the internet think so you never know...

Sorry about not posting a blog post yesterday I was busy messing around with some uni work hopefully I will get back into some order and post each day so keep checking my blog and I hope you all have a great new year...

Thanks for reading...

Christmas day

It's here and its the typical Christmas day were we all open gifts, ring round the family and prepare ourselves for the largest meal in history, we have done the same thing for the past dew years and it is great, a Christmas with family values and full of cheer...
I am off to spend time with the family...

 I have got some great things this year and i should be a good meal today...
Thanks for Reading...

the perfect gift

I have Finlay done all the Christmas shopping and it is all sorted out

I had real trouble thinking of gifts this year and had been racking my brain to work out what i should have got people but i had the most trouble working out what to get my nan, she has everything she needs and technology is not here strong point so that ruled out 80% of the gifts i had already bought. But in  a moment of greatness i thought of the greatest gift... A FOOD PARCEL yes that is right a box of food but not just any food...

the contents included:
  • Home made sweet potato and leek soup 
  • Home made mushroom soup 
  • Teabags 
  • Sugar 
  • Self Raising flour
  • Plain flour
  • Cookies
  • Chocolate 
  • Christmas Cake
  • Pasta
  • Herbs
  • Cookbook
When i delivered it yesterday she was over the moon and while i was having a cup of tea with her she was already planning a big baking session to day for the family...

All this has got me thinking, do we need these large overpriced gifts and all this mass produced guff to have a great christmas.... no you dont all you need is a few small gifts, family and friends and to just enjoy yourself...

i had to laugh at my brother, he said "what do you want for christmas? you have about £50 to spend"
to which i replied "why that much?, just buy me a 30m ethernet cable and that will be fine" we then argued about christmas and gifts for about an hour but i dont see why somene would need to get load of presents and stuff just to be happy... i got my nephew a wii game (thats all i got him) because i know he will have lots of gifts at home so why add to them... you only need a meaningful and small gift to say merry christmas...

thanks for reading and merry christmas

Assassins Creed Revelations... Complete just now ...

wow... that was pure gaming history...

I have finally done it and the ending is epic the storyline is just amazing the way the plot twisted and turned was just great...

The ending cut scenes were so informative and have answered the questions i have had for many years but i have so many more now the game was the best i have played this year...

It has taken me four days to complete the whole storyline and the depth of the game i9s so intriguing and interesting...

I would recommend this game to everyone just for the story that it portrays and the messages that are given through the actions performed... the way the game played out was nice and simple and i felt the way the game play and the interaction of characters way shown was a fully immerse experience... i enjoyed the controls and the way the game reacted to the movements and actions of the characters, the tools and weapons available were great and the way the game felt was good...

i am going to replay it again and look at the multiple aspects that are available in the game and i hope to record some of theses sessions for my you tube channel so that should be good and give me something to do...

internet evolution

So the Internet has come along way from its original origins, the hype of Internet shopping and the unlimited communication that is available is open to everyone, years ago when the Internet was in its starting years nobody could have predicted how much the Internet influences the amount of people it does in this modern day community.

The Internet has spawned its own language and it is so easy to use that everybody benefits from the services it can provide, the Internet shopping scene has priced many shops out of the market and the postal services have grown larger and larger, the use of the Internet and computers in business have led to better company's and better costumer satisfaction which has improved the way we all live...

Millions of people use facebook, twitter, friends reunited and other sights such as these have found old friends got to know great new people around the world and expand there understandings about different cultures and the way we all live in our different communitys...

Blogging and video making have been open to everyone and the use of technology means that young people can get a foothold in a future career that they wish to follow...

I think the internet is a great tool that should be available in every household and used by everyone as it would make life better and people understand how they can make a diffrence in the world...


please spread this to your friends and family in any weay you can and lets make a change to everyone...

Sleep fixes all

I awake to day with my attitude and outlook back to normal working order...
I have found that balance in life that keeps me happy and I am ready to enjoy myself again...

It's getting too much

Everything at the moment is just adding to a large list of problems,
Computers not working, phone contacts vanishing, servers going down, writers block, no YouTube ideas, stress, uni work and life in general at the moment I have found everywhere I turn more problems arise, bring on next week get this presentation out the way and get back some normality in my life...

Sometimes I think blogging is the only thing keeping me sane, all I have to do is write what I want and I just feel better and clear my head...
Hopefully I should get sorted out soon so I can ruturn to my normal calm latest back attitude, amazingly I an looking toward to christmas this year so let's hope its a good one...

The bad weather starts now...

Today it was cold and ice patches dotted the pavements, the weather is turning and we are finding that we are seeing more extreme weather changes in the next few months, the winds are picking up and the cold has set in...

Let's hope the weather improves...

Thanks for reading...

winter is here

the cold weather has arrived and as i sit here in my nice warm bedroom wearing a jumper i dread the thought of travelling to uni over the next few weeks, last year the weather was so bad we had shows cancelled and travel to uni was unbearable so lets hope the snow comes after the 16th december so then this christmas will be better than last year...

todays post is just a small post about the build up to christmas and just to say about the weather here at the moment so keep reading over the next few weeks for big news about the games development ideas i am going to be putting in place after christmas...

Join the ranks of great people in history

We all have tasks and things we must do and as I see it blogging is a big thing in my life I make a blog to share the experiences I gain and to communicate with peiple, without blogging I feel I would not be the person I am today, I have structure and stability in life because of my blog and I feel that I can use my skills creatively through my blog to help people and to spread positive vibes to other people...

games sessions and clan ideas 

i have an idea to set up a gamers group next year, the idea will be to play a game on a server on  pc games or to play xbox 360 games in large groups so in effect a games clan

the first game will be minecraft i think and i should get a server up and running ready for the first event...

also i plan to run some games sessions on the following games:

call of duty modern warfare 3
assassins creed reverlations multiplayer

if you are interested or know of people that maybe interested follow me on twitter to get more information...
