I was roused from my sleep yesterday morning by the doorbell (after having a few bizarre dreams I barely remember, though I have to admit I seem to remember them a little more these days) by the dude charging up the meter for the flat, and again, it looks like no one is here.  Anyway, I have a lot of work to do, in order to get myself ready for Prime Time.  First things first though, internet will need to be restored, by the very thing I dismissed earlier; my mobile... and with good reason.  I'm on the cusp of the coverage area, so everything is slow or doesn't work, which sucks.  It's about the only thing I can do while I wake up and dry off from my shower, mind.  After this, I'll need to brush my teeth and head to residential to check stuff.  Amazing what a night's sleep makes you realise.  The unfortunate part is that I could have done this last night if I recalled, but no matter, it's done now.  Next is checking Residential and mail stuff.  My mobile internet isn't bad, for the record, just that I'm out of coverage, so it performs bad.  Anyway, lack of internets gives me time to get much-needed stuff done, like getting rid of crap from my room.  However, I'm gonna work on this till about 11:30, seeing as I have a fair bit to say about the past couple days, although I'll prolly update this entry later to expand it to cover the last entry, once I have worked out what dates I'm covering, but either way, the trip home was pretty good, although going towards Dun Laoghaire, I had a couple of mishaps.

First of all, after I got to Connolly Station, with 4 minutes to spare on my suggested schedule (this will be important later on), I missed my train, and I was on the platform and all!  The reason for this however was I forgot which direction I was supposed to be going.  This may sound silly now, bit both Bray and Howth have beaches and are along the coast, albeit in opposite directions.  However, I caught a train going direct to Dun Laoghaire, but because I was so stressed, I got off at Blackrock, which is 2-3 stops away!  Luckily for me, there was a DART going to Greystones in the next few minutes, or I'd have been screwed!  Anyway, I made it to Dun Laoghaire port in a reasonable amount of time, and check-in was grand, though it was a bit empty (and a bit scary) going to the ship, as I thought I had missed it!  Luckily for me, I had arrived in plenty of time (relatively speaking), so once I was on the ferry, I had nothing to worry about, so I hopped onto UKCB and FSIRC to check stuff, and on UKCB I had a friend of mine wondering what was wrong with me because I'd barely been on, response being my PC in Ireland was screwed, graphics card gave up the ghost on Thursday, though at least I got a few things done before that.  After all that, I sat around and did relatively little, until after the man sitting next to me went off.  A few minutes later, I got myself bruunch and headed back to my seat, where a few minutes later, the man opposite me returned (there was also a woman next to me reading, and earlier there was a Korean guy - I think - beside the man and opposite the woman, who was at a window seat) and then we started chatting, and he gave me some advice about having a positive attitude, and he mentioned about how he met his wife in Sussex (after I told him I was born there), in a place called Hailsham (if I recall), at a hospital party, which he found out about in Brighton.

Anyway, after finishing the story (which was a lovely one),  he shook my hand and left, then I started talking to the lady beside me.  Turns out it was her first time to Holyhead, and that she was from Enniskillen (sp?) in Northern Ireland.  Anyway, I had a chat with her for a bit, before she got her back off conveyer belt B, while mine arrived on A, go figure.  Anyhow, I got my bag and began to make it to the station, when I spotted a train straight to Euston from Holyhead, and decided to wait for that, as there was less faffing about, and as I found out, it'd save me about an hour getting home.  Admittedly though, once I got home, it wasn't all that good, to be honest.  As you know from the entry on the 21st, the place was practically abandoned, no washing was done, and someone stole the shelf from my room, and it was also completely dark... anyway, we all know what happened, so I'll just steam on, and mention that a lot of people have moved in on Saturday, including two girls, or a girl and a guy, not sure.  Either way, I didn't get up to much, and I just realised about that parcel too and what it was, was from eBay.  Saturday wasn't terribly active, and nor is Sunday, although I'll have a commissioning entry for my new spiritual, paranormal and dream journal, which has been created out of neccessity, although I can't explain for reasons here.

Moving onto Sunday though, I've started to organise my room some, and laundry has been put on the back burner till tomorrow now, considering I have no will to go out, although I may have to anyway for dinner.  And, if I can get myself out for about 8pm, I can do a single load of laundry, which is much-needed at this point!  Anyway, onto more trivial things now, and I've been scouring eBay for Planescape Torment and Star Trek Innerspace toys.  I also have plans to sell off Commandos, Unreal Tournament 2004, Die Hard 3 and Baldur's Gate II, once I find the manuals and CD and DVD for it, as they're all spare at the moment.  All I have for BG2 is the box and reference card, which is a start, but seriously isn't gonna make any money for me at the end of the day.

Anyway, today I'll have a few things to do, like laundry and shopping, and I also need to pop over to Uni to get stuff sorted... it never ends!  Either way, I hope this year, I don't have to worry about stolen food, and I never did get the money back from my former flatmate either.... and he had the cheek to ask me for my PS2 to borrow!  But yeah, with the new flatmates in, and as at least one is female, I don't walk around topless like I used to, and I imagine I can't pull off stuff I used to be able to in an all-male flat.  Either way, I need to organise my room some more, get stuff out of the way, and hope to god my parcel hasn't been shipped off to the USA, although it's possible that as I've been such a good resident, they may have kept it for me.  We'll see later on today though...

Well, I just called up someone who is going to look at my camera for me, so hopefully I'll be able to get a quote in order to get it repaired, so I'll be heading into West London at some point.  I also need to go to UEL to get money sorted out, as well as the accommodation office to recover my student card, sign a contract and explain the fire extinguisher discharge, so I'll be having a wonderful day out it, seems... I might have to put off buying stuff till next week though, although I do have a Southern Style chicken wrap which'll do for brekkie, yum!

After that I'll need a shower... need to keep in mind too that on Friday I'm again going to Central for BIT2007, and I'm also having a guest over which is cool.  That's really about it at the moment... need to check my bank balance though. >.>

I may need to break into my laundry fund in order to sustain myself for the next couple of weeks, will need to budget methinks... I have 30 quid, well 25 quid from that to last me a couple weeks, and I think I can do it, although I risk going overdrawn by 50 quid.  Anyway, I'll need to get going in a bit...

Well, I got my new Oyster card which is firmly staying in my wallet from now on. I also started on my laundry today as well, or rather half of it, so things are starting to take off. I also got my first Chinese (food) in months, by getting spare ribs in bbq sauce, chips and prawn toast. Overall, it was nice and all, but it wasn't as good when you compare it to the one in Barking... well, except for the prawn tost, which is better in Goodmayes. The chips were nice, but not like the huge ones in Barking, also I only got 6 bits of prawn toast compared to the 8 in Barking and Goodmayes, though it was moist than Barking, but not Goodmayes. The spare ribs were nice too, although the bbq sauce wasn't what I expected, perhaps I've been spoilt, lol.

Anyway, it occurred to me while eating the spare ribs that I couldn't ever become a vegetarian, heh. I also see that I've got fuck all in my bank account, and I'm thankful that from tomorrow, I only have a week left before I get some more money... I had to use my overdraft facility, which I hate, although the amount I took out is equivlent to what I will owe HSBC, which sucks. I need to go and get money back from UEL, as well as trying to recover bank charges, and unfortunately for me, the ex-landlord is a sinkhole, as apparantly, I owe him £1440 for 6 months rent!

Of course, that's what his solicitor told him, and I'm after discussing my circumstances, and it seems that I owe him nothing, seeing as someone was found to replace me, although the landlord doesn't seem to be aware of this, heh. I did some reading up as well, and between what my mate said and I definately seem to owe him nothing, given someone was foudn to replace me... it all seems a bit dodgy to be honest, but whatever... I'll have to leave it now, unless he manages to find my address (which he asked for from my mum - who wouldn't give it to him) or number. It's funny though, legally I owe him nothing, yet his solicitor claims I do, but solicitors tend to be sneaky like that sometimes, don't they?
