Those were the days that were

I was left to amuse myself this evening and I encountered ‘Coyote Ugly’ on the ‘Watch Now’ of LoveFilm. It reminded me of Uni, for two reasons: one because it was one of my top films during second year and two because at the end of first year, a friend of mine loved ‘Can’t Fight the Moonlight’. He took quite a bit of stick for that but that’s not the purpose of my blog.

Anyway, I decided to listen to some top Uni tunes (Final Countdown, Don’t Stop Moving) and then decided to take a look at some of my old pictures. It has been a long time since I have looked at my Uni pictures (and some other randoms had slipped in there) but it was really nice to ‘go back in time’. I couldn’t help but miss some things from back in the Durham days:

  • friends living right next door;
  • drinking tea & watching rubbish afternoon tv;
  • spending the average day living in a hoodie;
  • (geek as I am) sitting at my desk working in the peace and quiet of early mornings or late at night;

Now, I would like to be clear, I am not in one of those ‘mopey’ moods where I am wishing myself back in time etc etc. I am more than happy with where I am in life and everything I have done since I graduated. But it’s nice to be able to spend the occasional hour re-living major periods of your life!
