Sorry About The Delay

Howdy readers of the north, south, east and west! I just wanted to make a quick blog post to apologize about the recent slow down in my blog posting recently and explain the reasons behind it.


Basically overt he last week I’ve been hanging around in my hometown of Luton for easter because that’s the only week I’ve gotten to come back to see my family and friends before running back off to Sheffield to start uni again in a few days. Anyways, normally when I got home there’s a restriction about the amount of electricity and internet I can use so normally I’ll only get to use it every once in a while. And since I normally leave the house most times I don’t get enough time to sit down and get right into my blogging properly.

So yeah that’s why I have been posting things as quickly as usual, then add on top of that the fact that it was my sister’s 21st birthday yesterday and there was a lot of hyped building up to that, so again my blogging was put on hold. Unfortunately that meant that 3 of my posts from my Month of Nostalgic Video Game Reviews 2 have been late and I hate that, so once I get to Sheffield a few hours from now everything will be back on track hopefully and we’ll be full operational! So hang tight peeps and be patient with me! 😀 😀

Living in a house that isn’t a home

Good day to all who may be reading this blog post, since I won’t be going to the cinema until tomorrow I guess I’ll share another chapter of my life with you all. Today I will be discussing my housing situation and how living in this house is just not a jolly time anymore.

I dunno about this but it would make things a little more interesting haha.

You’ve probably heard the term “a house is not a home” or possibly heard of the song by Dionne Warwick, anyway the fact of the matter that is how I feel about my current living quarters. However it wasn’t always this way, back when me and my other housemates move into this house back in July things were on the right track. However problems continuously came over the months. Firstly we lost our most lively house mate when he just disappeared off to Manchester and left us with a random Russian lass who I swear is the hardest person to get a conversation out off. Secondly we lost another housemate when he had to go back to his hometown to take care of his mother’s house taking his dog with him too. And thirdly we have this asshole of a landlord who I may have mentioned before on this blog, he basically just invites himself into the house on the odd occasion, he’s proper nosey and he demands money continuously from me and my other housemate who aren’t in the best financial situations.

Then add on top of that the fact that there is barely interaction between people in this house. Back between July to October that was a connection between me and my fellow housemates, however after 3 people left, 1 randomer moved in and the Freeview box on the TV broke no one hangs out in the living room. It is as empty and barren as an abandoned warehouse. Normally it’s just me and my best mate Craig talking while the other 2 we barely interact with because their rarely here or just choose not to talk to us. However when Craig goes home I'[m left alone, and that’s the key word here. Alone.

Back in our flat accommodation last year even though we were pretty individual we always made time to hang out and bond. But back then I had 3 whole friends to hang with, but no I only have 1 of them to hang with. In this house there is no family, no bonding, just people living in a house who sometimes complain by each other’s backs and steal things.

So what’s the point of this blog post? Well I just wanted to highlight that if you gonna live in student housing make sure you move in with people you ACTUALLY like and want to be around, also make sure your mates don’t desert you randomly too.

Being back home is weird

It is strange leaving home, moving to another town/city and trying to find your feet again. That’s exactly what I did when I went to university in Sheffield. I had to establish my identity all over again, make new friends and continue my life of learning in a much bigger and more academic environment. And over time I adjusted, I found my feet, got some great friends and discovered over the last 3 months that Sheffield is a pretty awesome place to live. Even after uni ended I could imagine myself hanging around in that city for quite some time. I guess you can say I got attached to the city a lot; it’s a very nice place. But then I left Sheffield last weekend to come back to my home town of Luton and things don’t right.

I’ve been back in Luton for just under a week and it feels strange to be back in a place that I used to call home, I mean sure it is still technically my home as I haven’t completely left the country or established a new life on the other side of the planet. But I feel more at home in Sheffield then I do when I am in Luton, there is just a refreshing feeling when hanging around in Sheffield and back up there it feels like anything is possible and that’s why I love it so. Nothing feels as hard to do or complicated to do up there unlike in Luton where it feels like there a level of complexity that comes with living in this town. I don’t mean to sound like I’m bad-mouthing my own home town, but with the amount of the stuff that I have been able to do in this new wonderful city that I’ve been living in for the last few months it’s weird to fall back into this place where I was before, it feels a tad unnatural. It’s just strange to have all this free time with nothing to do with it; I much prefer the madness of my time schedule in Sheffield where the unpredictable nature of life takes over with my lovely flatmates.

Again don’t get me wrong I don’t hate my home town, far from it in fact. I really do like being back here where things are a great deal simpler and all that jazz. I’ve met and caught up with all of my best friends, hanged out with many people and it seems like people genuinely miss me and actually want to hang with me. It’s made me so stupidly happy 😀 I swear in these last few days I have gotten all that I have ever wanted and then some, I am satisfied. And yet, I miss Sheffield so bad I just want to go back and live it up all over again. I know I’ll be back on the 31st of December for New Year’s fun, however its strange I should miss a city I’ve only lived in for a few months and miss a flat I’ll only live in for just under a year with ridiculously high pricing for rent or miss even people who I have only known for a short time. But hey what can I say, I love the city, I love the people and even though the flat rent is killing me it’s a nice place to chill in haha.

So now with Christmas around the corner I guess I look forward to it, it’s strange that it’s nearly here and yet I haven’t noticed at all, it’s really unnatural to me. Oh well only 2 days to go let’s hope something gets me in the groove! Laters. 🙂
