I do like the snow don’t get me wrong it’s fun, it memorable and for that one day even the most serious people you know are children for a few days. However for some reason when it snows in the UK it stays for ages but not as snow, that would be too good to be true. Suddenly everything turns to ice and it may sound like it’s time for ice skating well it’s not! It’s the time to look down at your feet and watch where your walking and try to jump onto the dry patches of those roads. People slip, you look like a douche and everything is closed. Lastly comes this slush and dirty snow which makes everything slower for some reason. It takes a few days for that to go away and your just left with wetness everywhere
To be honest the snow is only good once in a persons life I believe, when your in lower high school. In primary school in bad conditions you get ‘wetplay’ which is when you are imprisoned in a class to play shitty board games because outside is too dangerous so you don’t even enjoy the weather with your mates at break. When you get to sixth form or college you have to study for your A levels and the library is closed for ages so you are constantly in panic mode that you will fail your Christmas exams. When your an adult I imagine you like it because you miss work for a bit but eventually you realise O bollocks I have a family to feed or promotions to gain. However in high school their is no responsibility and no pressure for anything so when something different comes you take advantage, what do you have to loose.
You may think I’m miserable and I’m really not but when I hear it’s snow soon all these variables come in my head. It’s a joy in the short term and quite romantic but if it puts you out of your routine too much eventually sparks begin to fly.
The game? Hitman Absolution. The Hitman games before this such as Hitman Blood Money have been fantastic games and have shown that yes you can kill someone in a various different situations. Not only that but it gives you a chance to really test you as a gamer as everything you do does have consequences. I’m Keeping this post short because you won’t know much about that game until it’s brought out later on in November but one this is for sure that if you never played it, go and buy it, and it will change the way you walk in a black suit and red tie.

University reunion in ten years? I think so.
One of the most intriguing things I have heard to date is by Stephen Fry about the language we speak. Words have different meanings but when putting them into context they actually mean something else in society. When we say the word bitch people regard it as being rude but when we actually look at the meaning of that word it means female dog and somewhere down the line society has assumed that would be a curse. Into more depth the F word means to do something which resembles great love and passion between humans but again when used in a public space people are very offend by the word even though they perhaps do it themselves.
However words which we use all the time in conversation and get no social stigma are words like torture and murder which are used very casually but mean terrible things. For example ‘Did you see the traffic yesterday is was murder’ or ‘the ride home was absolute torture’ and that is usually followed by laughter or agreement. Yet these words mean to physically seriously hurt someone or to end their life but those words in any language are seen as okay to use but when a word for love is used such as the F word then the situation is completely changed.
It’s strange how the language we speak means one thing but perceived as another. You may read this post and think you know what I think he is speaking total Boll….
Listen and love
This is my first post on WordPress, I’m pretty impressed. I came across this tune because this actually makes hip hop rap look good unlike a lot of mainstream rubbish. Anyway as the title says listen and love.
