Sorry miss, the server cache ate my homework…

A bit late this post is, but hey, better late than never!

Permit me to introduce myself. My name is Mr. B, and I am a musician, sound mechanic, videogamer, occasional blogger and as of last Wednesday, a Leaving Cert victim student. The reason why I’m keeping my name a secret is because I don’t want anyone knowing that I’m doing this. (it’s also a pun on Mr. X. :P) I’ll reveal who I am in time, just bear with me!

The subjects that I’m doing are:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Music
  • DCG
  • Physics
  • Spanish
  • Applied Maths

all higher for the moment. I’m planning on doing a sound engineering course over in the UK, but my Irish backup is Music, Media and Performance Technology at UL.

As you can hopefully tell, my main passion is Music. I’ve been playing Piano for about 10 years, Guitar for about 4 and I took up the double-bass in March. I prefer rock music, but I recently acquired a soft spot for Pendulum after watching a DVD where they performed in the Brixton Academy. Wow. What a show. I’m also a bit of a computer geek, knowing a little bit of programming language, but mainly just an internet techie. So if you see smilies popping up all over the place, sorry! 🙂

OK, introduction is now over. This was supposed to be posted last Sunday, but there was a server problem at the website (according to Sean anyway) which meant that I am being pushed back to now. So I’m just gonna quickly go over the points that I was going to post on before the problem.

As you’ll have probably found out by now, the object of this year’s DCG coursework is a sat nav. My initial reaction when I found that out was, to put it lightly, “What?!”. In my opinion, that was the weirdest choice for a project out of all the years that there have been DCG (I know, only 3 years, but still, come on!). Thankfully, I managed to find my mother’s old sat nav that my dad bought for her as a present, meaning to be a joke. But she never used it, which meant that I had finally found something to model…. well, unleast until I found out that Garmin had to recall it due to a battery problem. ( – for anyone who might be worried by what I said.) So, here we go. Back to square one. How will it all pan out? We’ll just have to wait and see.

When I left school for the holidays in June, I made a promise that I would swat up in all my studies, in particular in Physics, which I find to be the worst subject I ever chose. I can now reveal that that promise is officially broken. For example, I was given a Physics test yesterday, which I knew that I had coming for a week, but I only studied for the past 3 days or so. Likewise, in Spanish, I was given my Oral Role Plays on a sheet of paper by my teacher – an actual Oral Examiner – and told that I had to learn them off for Monday. But instead I’m going to see Muse. In Wembley. You can see where this is heading.

And the fact that my parents are constantly nagging me on is no help either. I know I have to study, I don’t need people to remind me of that. Parents, please! If you’re reading this, please give your sons/daughters a break. They do study. You just may not know it.

Right, I’ll start posting every Sunday, starting from the 19th, unless there’s another server problem. Here’s hoping there isn’t. 🙂

    1. Haha. Yeah, that’s happening to me a lot over the past week for some reason! Seats are to the far left of the stage though, so I might not get to see Dom. 🙁

    2. Ahh bad times! Still, no one who’s actually getting to Wembley gets any sympathy. I saw them in Marley Park a couple summers ago and I’m dying to see them in an outdoor gig again.

    3. You were at Marley too? That was the first gig that I ever went to by them. Was completely blown away.

    4. Only time I’ve ever seen them, and still one of the best nights of my life. It was brilliant like.
