After rushing off quickly on the previous post, (due to being extremely late for the late night showing of ‘Woman In Black’) I had to end it on a rather swift note...but I’ve acquired quite a taste for this so I’m back for a few paragraphs before I hit the hay.
So we didn’t actually end up watching the movie as it is Orange Wednesdays, therefore every student within the whole of  Lincoln flocks to the Odeon to get a two for one offer, it was sold out. Although we did end up watching ‘Safe House’ which brings me to the main subject of this entry...

How on earth do you get drafted into these enigmatic agencies?! And why haven’t I? 
Yes, I’m not in Cambridge, Oxford or any Ivy league uni as such but Lincoln’s got a bit of ‘zing’ to it doesn’t it? They could do with a few of us, we know how to throw a ruckus!
Anyway, how is it that in a movie as of such, someone can go to an Ivy league uni, graduate in law and then suddenly be drafted into the CIA? Who’s watching them to do this? God, it’s bewildering and, lets face it, totally unfair. We’re all jealous. It’s strange to think that someone who’s my age (nineteen as of a week ago today) will be chilling out in the MI6’s head office in twenty five years, probably looking down at me from a tiny little camera that’s been inserted into their eye socket?! 
The world freaks me out sometimes.... anyway, it was a quality film and Denzel Washington does himself proud in it. It’s nice to see him playing a baddy for once, even though he’s inevitably the good guy at the end! 
Anyway, off on a tangent but you were pre-warned. 


(Sorry to those intending to see this film, hate to say I may have ruined the ending.)

Follow the yellow brick road...the blogging begins, who we gonna’ find?

After being instructed to delve into the world of a frequent blogger under my journalism degree - that’s exactly what I’m doing here, although I’ve already committed the unruly crime of ‘ditching’ tumblr - to try out ‘blogspot’. As I’m writing this I see myself getting quite off topic as all I can think about in my head is how stupidly easy this is compared to tumblr! All I have to do is click, write and submit. Where are the 1000 plus encrypted layouts and the pages and pages of instructions on how to begin?
So I will put it out there now, this isn’t going to be a picture blog full of my Holliday images and photos I’ve undoubtedly just nicked from flickr to make me seem ‘artistic’ and ‘individual'. I’m just going to enjoy a frequent rant, complaint and possibly a rather opinionated entry. In the mean time, please feel free to follow me on Twitter.
Enjoy my ramblings, this should be fun... 

Here’s a face to the blog.
