I live, I just had no internet. 3/10 on a hurricane effort, it was just a bit windy. I would have had more fun on the coast as originally planned.   

The trip back could hold some 'fun' surprises.  

Oh I know, college is on tomorrow (of course it is, it took them 5 hours to decide to close it, 1/2 an hour to decide to open it, despite the fact main access-ways to it are bloody underwater). I think I'm going to have to go a different route tomorrow which should be exciting. 

 

I emailed a lecturer (who was planing on having a German listening tomorrow morning) because I can't imagine anyone coming in because 'eff trying to cross the city in the state that it's currently in.

Today I had some sort of examination with my saxophone (so testing my progress and everything) and it went well until the end when the examiner suddenly asked me to clap 160 Bpm. This was a real surprise because nobody had told me before I had to clap anything and for one second I thought 'that's it, I haven't practised that'. But then I remembered that I Saw Her Standing There is actually in 160 Bpm, so I let Paul sing 'Well, she was just seventeen' in my head and clapped along to the tune. And, guess what, the examiner checked with a metronome and it was spot on!

Thanks, Paul, John, George, and Ringo for recording such a catchy song in 160 Bpm, among many other things, you saved my exam!a-hard-days-night-john-6

As the name suggests, this is a large (very large) database that has the listings of BPM rates for many, many songs and artists. It doesn't feature every song ever, but it's certainly extensive.

I took a Fairly Important Test today, and did respectably -- despite my leisurely view of it (I mean, I did my work and that, but I wasn't sweating it or anything, because I don't really care all that much ahdn_george_06). paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

And then I rewarded meself when I got home by jammin' the Zeppelin, and other stuff, for about two hours. My fingers feel amazing. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Sorry I thanked this post on accident. I hope you’re getting back to 100% ET, that doesn’t sound like any fun at all. Hope all news you hear is good news.

When you are defecating, you should never push. Pushing can cause many ill side effects such as hernias, anal fissures, and hemorrhoids. None of these sound like fun, so to avoid them, just let it come on its own.

Hope you feel better soon.

As I mentioned earlier I'm leaving my job soon and my boss has been a bit of a s**t and is starting to realise how much work he's got on his plate so I got myself a new ringtone for my final week at work.
