Beach Test

Beach Test, originally uploaded by davidwilliamgold.

I was given a video camera as a Christmas present, this is the first video I have made using it, I realised once it was done that the quality is not on the highest possible so next time I will have to remember to change the settings.

Today was my final day at work until Boxing Day and it was hell! The morning was fine, woke at 6am as usual and left the house with my brother on our way to work (myself and him are working together as he is back from university for the holidays) and that was fine, the pavements were icy so we were almost skating to work.

We arrived and then thats when it went downhill. Half way through the breakfast shift my left leg decided to go dead and gave me a massive sting, I was then left with no option than to carry on in this situation, literally dragging my leg while trying to balance and do my work on just one leg pretty much.

Once this was finished we went to the washing room to start the second half of the morning shift, this as usual was plain boring and slow, my leg was still dead, then along with this I gained a headache, tired, back hurting, arms killing and itching all over. To make matters worse I thought I was only working until 10:30 when my manager decided to come in and tell me I was to go on a break at 10:30 then start again for the lunch shift. Usually I would be fine with this, but today I was just not in the mood, it had already felt like I'd been there for 6 hours so an added 2.5 hours made it even worse.

I took my break which was fine then the lunch shift went fine as well, boring but nothing happened to make it worse.

I'm now sat at home, fire on, about to watch a movie and relaxing before my amazingly busy week that is coming up after today - I really cannot wait!

College is now finally over for the Christmas holidays. I decided that I would take the Thursday off college because:

a) I really couldn’t be bothered.

b) Well, there is no b.

On the Thursday my self, Tash and Eloise went out for an all you can eat chinese buffet for lunch, it only costed us £3.95 for food then £2 for refillable drinks, we thought this was a bargain considering how much we ended up eating, I think I must have had about 4 plates and 6 or 7 drinks, I believe I got my moneys worth!

Not much has really been going on this weekend, I worked this morning from 7am as usual and the same again tomorrow. My weekends are pretty ruined by work but as I usually finish at either 10:30am or 1:00pm I’m fine with it, and considering I’m making much more than anybody else (£9 an hour Saturday / £12 an hour Sunday) it keeps me content.

On Monday myself and Brodie are going to see Avatar 3D, if it is as good as people have been saying it is then I believe we are in for a hell of a good time, but knowing our luck it won;t live up to our expectations, after we saw Paranormal Activity and thought it was a complete let down to us.

On Tuesday I’m going over Keya’s house along with Lou and Tash, we are going to be having our own Christmas and sleeping over as we won’t get to see each other any other time before Christmas day. We are gonna be watching movies, eating, drinking - basically what we always do, then we are gonna open the presents we each got each other. We initially set a budget of £15 each, I have gone way over that, every time I’ve seen something I think they would like I bought it, but although it means going over budget it does mean they receive more presents, so thats a good thing.

Christmas Eve I’m going out with my family (Mum, Dad, Brothers, Grandad) to go see St. Trinians 2, yes, St. Trinians 2. We never do anything as a family, I think this may be one of the only times this year we are going out as a family apart from special occasions such as birthdays or when my brother comes home from University. I’m actually looking forwards to this as I enjoyed the first film and knowing my family they will just make it more hysterical.

Also I have recently started using my Flickr again, I basically post to it about 3-4 times a week if I can, I'm currently working on a horror and 3D set so please, check it out:

From then on I have nothing planned until New Years Eve when I’m going up to London with Becky, Keya and Lou. I’m actually amazingly excited for this! We are staying overnight at Becky’s Dad’s house so we don’t have to worry about catching a train back to Poole after midnight. I love London, and I’ve always wanted to go for New Years so I’m pretty psyched up for this. After that its just going to be sleeping and work until I’m back at college so nothing special at all really.

I really don't use this much at all, in fact I rarely even think about blogging. Not much has been going on really, nothing to write about so I guess a list of everything I have done in the last two weeks or so will do good enough:

1) Went to Pizza Hut with Lou and ended up making complete fools of ourselves.
2) Saw Paranormal Activity with Brodie, hoping for it to scare us shitless but ended up making us laugh like crazy.
3) Went out for a lunch time meal with Keya at The Real China, ate so much and felt sick.
4) Saw The Descent: Part 2 with Anna, this time a film did manage to have me covering my eyes a bit.
5) Went late night shopping with Brodie, she ended up buying herself a new phone and we ended up in McDonalds.
6) Went to The Real China again but this time with Anna and Claire and ended up stuffing myself again.
7) Sick before I had work on Saturday, phoned in sick and stayed in bed all day.
8) Went to work on Sunday, my shift has been changed from 7-10am!

So thats the past two weeks summed up in 8 points.
I forgot to mention though that its now December, which means its nearly Christmas! God I'm excited, I've done all my shopping for it, everything is already wrapped (I'm considering unwrapping it all because I like to wrap presents), and now all I have to do is write cards for people and maybe grab some cheap little things for a few friends I haven't got much for.
This year I haven't actually made a list of what I want, my parents know what I want (or so I hope) and I'm just hoping that they manage to work out everything I want, this will probably consist mainly of money, but knowing me I'l waste it all on complete junk.
I have to save £300 though because in July myself, Anna, Soph and maybe Claire are going to Amsterdam for a week as I think we need a holiday before I head off to University and leave them guys. So I guess that a lot of the money I get from Christmas will all go towards the holiday, but after that I'l go crazy with it.

Thats all I have to say now.
