Though I’ve complained about the current state of my life in blog form on many occasions, luckily there happens to be a few moments in between all of the boredom and tedious uni classes that make life worth living. It’s just those small things that make the big differences. Like last night when I went to a fun fair in Sheffield with three friends, it was an incredible time. Though yesterday had been a pretty dull day overall, when the night came around things did get better. Firstly I had finally gotten Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions on my PC, a game I have been wanting to play for ages! And while the controls took some time to get used to, I was enjoying myself very much. Then I had me some steak and I love steak ever so much, it was so satisfying and just when I thought that my night was going to end something lovely happened. My flatmate told me that two of our other friends were heading up to the fun fair in town and they wanted us to come along and since my flatmate and I had next to nothing to do we jumped at the opportunity to go out and have fun.
Fun fairs, they are hella fun!
So then a little while later our friends came over, we chilled for a bit and then headed out. When we got there I swear it felt like being a kid again. Fun fairs really do bring out my kiddy side and in true child-like style me and my friend wanted to go on the highest ride and that we did. We got onto the ride and then we ascended into the air and my mate was started having second thoughts. We were suspended in the air for a bit before the ride started and we got a good view of Sheffield at night which is quite pretty I must say. Then the ride started and holy crap that initial drop made me crap my pants and then after that I was just laughing the entire rest of the ride, it was an incredible adrenaline rush! We then when onto another two rides with my other mates and it was awesome. Unfortunately one of my mates was feeling a bit ill afterwards so we headed off, but heck we had fun at the fair, just pure fun without any complications. Those are the kind of nights I live for.
We then went to McDonald’s to get some food and meet up with one of our friends’ housemates and then we went back to theirs and along the way we were having funny conversations about posh people and also talking about northern and southern accents. When we got back to their house it turned into a gaming session. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 on the TV, while Sonic the Hedgehog 1 is being played on the iPhone and I could hear Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS and I could also hear Star Fox 64 on another 3DS too. So much gaming all at once, it was madness and I loved it! And just to top off an awesome night we started watching Adventure Time on the TV via a HDMI cable plugged into one of the housemates’ laptop. It was hilarious and ridiculous, Adventure Time really is one of those TV shows that is original, unique and leaves you with a lasting impressive. It is one of very few cartoons in existence at the moment that is actually good, consistent and stands out from the crowd. Anyways back to the story, after a while some us started to drift off and after 1am me and my flatmate decided to call it a night and head back to our flat. So when we got back I was still just trying to get over how great the night was, it required so little effort and yet turned out to be one of the best nights I’ve had for ages. While I love to go out to the clubs and party, it’s great to have nights like the one I had yesterday where you are just in good company, doing things that you like to do and just having plain old fun which are always so much simpler and satisfying too.
