Life: Ice Hockey! University! Sweaty Trains!



One of my quickly flourishing interests consists of the sport of ice hockey. It's always been on my radar growing up in Bracknell Forest, home of The Bees - a team whose past definitely overshadows its present. However a few friends on the internet managed to convince me to watch the end of last season's NHL, where I took the New York Rangers as my own. On Saturday, however, I went to watch my home-town play in Peterborough. The Phantoms took a 4-1 lead heading into the final period before Bracknell scored two quick goals - one short handed - to set up a tense finale. Unfortunately they couldn't find a way through and the match finished 4-3. The bees did manage to rack up 28 PIMs though, which is really quite impressive. On Sunday they managed to win their first game of the season back at The Hive against Slough, so the weekend wasn't a total loss!

Heading back from Peterborough took an age. The two hour journey back being complemented with a half-hour wait in New Street, and an absolutely packed train back to Selly Oak. Train journeys aren't the most enjoyable things anyway, but I had to get back for the first day of uni today.

Which actually didn't go that bad, considering I was on campus from 9-5! Finding out that one of your lectures didn't actually have a room, and being e-mailed half way through you were being taught in a re-arranged room was interesting. Good to see everybody again, but selling bar crawl tickets on your own is a little depressing. Of course the best part of university is the student loan, which finally hit my bank. Everything I ever wanted. Excellent.

I also had some photographs of Night Verses featured in the new issue of Stencil Magazine. Check it out!

Now to try and get rid of this headache before cracking on with some Functional Programming. Concentrating is tough.
