A house, an engagement party, graduation, a degree, New Designers in London, a trip to California, start a full time job, oh and plan a wedding. 2012 doesn't look too shabby.

What IS he up to now?

Blogging for me is a great way for me to keep everyone up to date with all the day-to-day bits I'm up to as well as the bigger aspects of my goings on.

Winter wonderland

Many apologies for the lack of postings again. My laptop is at the apple shop again, the GPU this time. Although I'm not too upset as I have all my work done and the 3 year warranty runs out in 2 weeks so the in a topsie-turvee kind of way it's actually quite a good thing.

I'm back in Sussex now and my timing could not have been better. I handed in my work 2 days earlier in order to get home sooner and see my girl, but had I have left 24hrs later I would have probabley only just got home. Crazy weather here at the moment.

It did however play into my hands. The first night back with Verity was great only to wake up to a text from her work saying school was closed!! SNOW DAY

More to come.

Another later night in the CAD lab...

Just taking a break from work so thought I would update the blog

This is what I am up to at the moment

It's the muscle behind my latest project which is a squib.

This is a pneumatic device that you cock and load with fake blood or dust and can be fired with the pull of a trigger to simulate a bullet hitting a person or object.

It's designed be cheap so that it can be used by amateurs, theatres or drama groups.

I'll be doing some sexy presentation boards soon so I'll let you know as soon as their done.

MPH: TopGear Live

Due to my computer 'miss-behaving' and being a bit pressed for spare time there are a few things that haven't gone up here yet.

So about a month back myself and two house mates got on a not so 'mega-bus' and headed for London town. We left Newcastle at 11pm Thursday and arrived in London at about 7am. After a coffee and a bit of sight-seeing I hopped on the train to Seaford and stayed with V. Next day Me and V got the train up to London and headed for Earls court for the MPH: Top Gear Live show. It was amazing.

Sam needs your help!!

This is the company I want to work for.
Click the picture then click to see their showreel on the home page

Next year I have a placement, instead of lectures.
I've found quite a few places I would like to work but this firm stands out above the rest. I think they only take graduates but if I can only get someone to visit my website maybe I can change their mind. Think Wayne trying to get hold of Mr. Big at the end of Wayne's World.

So I need to get my website looking sh*t hot over xmas so I can do the big push in the new year.

Feedback from everyone as to what you think my website should include and how it should be presented would be greatly appreciated

Spinning lady

spinning lady
This is something a friend showed to me that I find incredible.
Now you probably looked at the image before reading this but which direction is the lady spinning? Clockwise or anti-clockwise? The answer is either and it depends how your mind works... Apparently most of us will see her spinning clockwise, I did at first. But if you if you convince yourself that (in my case) it's not her right leg up in the air but her left, you'll see her rotating in the opposite direction. Nuts huh?
