I Am So Hurt

I woke up this morning to a message in my inbox from a (former) subscriber to my blog proclaiming that they are unsubscribing from me. Um ok, good for you. I did have a little chuckle as the person clearly thinks I should be devastated because I have lost a single subscriber.

Not that I’d be bothered at all but if anything I’d be maybe 0.02% more hurt if it was on my YouTube channel, something that I actually care about building up. My blog is purely for me, if you find my inane ramblings entertaining then great! I’m really happy. But, to me, this is just a place where I can vent beyond the 140 character limit of Twitter.

Friends, subscribers, followers, likes. When does all of this boil down to just arbitrary numbers on a page with no real meaning or importance. If you enjoy my content then that makes me happy. (then again if I annoy you then that also makes me happy! *troll*).

So, why do I do any of the above? Because I want to see the content I am subscribing to. (this is turning into a rant) All this bullshit on Twitter about #TeamFollowback or #FollowFriday is really annoying! All you are doing is subscribing to stuff you don’t care about which further drowns out the stuff you actually want to see. The original thinking behind the #FollowFriday is where you’d pick out someone you follow who publishes interesting things and then tweet then, thats right! Just one person! Not five or ten, just one!



Zeitgeist The Movie

The most important film you will ever watch

So since this blog has really just been ‘Dom writes nonsense and reposts things’, I’m making a little list of things I think you should all watch. First on the list is Zeitgeist: The Movie, it is available on Netflix so there is really no excuse for not watching it since its all included in your subscription. For those of you who still haven’t got a Netflix account (what is wrong with you?!) then leave a comment & I’ll try to hook you up with a few months free or something, no promises though!

Oh shit, I have a boatload of emails to write & do 3 reports for next week. I also have a huge film to edit, maybe I should stay away from Minecraft tomorrow…


I’m stuck in my weird sleeping pattern again. The past few days I have regularly been going to sleep around 3am. I woke up today at 10am today when I should have been in uni at that time. I managed to get some editing done today on my final major project for uni despite the fact that all of the editing suites were taken and the tutor (and his 4 students) wouldn’t let anyone else in the computer room which has 30+ computers.

My favourite coffee cup.

The thing that helps me get out of bed.

This is my favourite cup.
The fact that there are less than five weeks of university left for me and then I’ve officially completed my education, which has been a fixture my entire life. Its time to dive into the real world but I’m cautiously optimistic, Potion Forest LLP is doing good and I’ll be incorporating Squidwolf Syndicate as an “LTD” in the summer officially founding two companies in under a year.

Plan for the rest of this evening? Minecraft with Bryony & Lydia! :) <3

Weekend Warrior

This has been one busy week! Monday I was swamped with getting all of my uni work organised in an effort to make an attempt at finishing it. It started off as a nice day because I think when the sun is out during Winter time I dunno it just feels…epic, I can’t really explain it because I feel sad at the same time yet happy.

I spent all monday smashing through my first research paper & got it completed on time, amazing right?! I’m the sort of person which makes everyone who is a “time freak” nervous, I leave everything until the last minute and get everything finished within one 24 hour period and I’m convinced my best work comes out then.

Bryony’s photography exhibition opened this week & I’m really proud of what she managed to do, some really awesome work! Seriously if you are around Bolton near Market Place Shopping Centre at all before christmas you should head up there, grab yourself a Starbucks and go & check out the work. Although say for an unwanted guest it has been an awesome exhibition…I’m saying awesome a lot this post.

Right now I’m trying to get as much of my to do list finished as I can, I’m about halfway through my final two papers and then that is it for christmas! Rock on!
