Summer is here!

24 May

It’s 21 degrees Celsius here. Well, it’s not now because it’s night time but earlier on it was. I swear, in that exam hall I thought I was going to pass out from the heat!

Well, summer is finally here and now I’m free! Free to do all the things being preoccupied with college was preventing me from. So for my first post-exam blog post I thought I’d lay down my plans for summer. Perhaps if it’s all written down I’ll get more of it done? I’ll cross them out as I go.

My to-do list:

  • HOLIDAY IN GALWAY! For 6 days myself and some cohorts shall invade the previously-peaceful village of Carna.
  • Trip to my insane veggie friend’s house in Roscommon for a few days with some more amigos from college.
  • WACKEN! Another year, another amazing German metal festival. Cannot wait.
  • Camping! I have two groups of campers to stay up all night with this year, one in Ravensdale Forest and another elsewhere. I’m expecting much drink, bacon and camp-fire stories.
  • I have stacks of books to get through. These range from Orwell and Huxley to Nietzsche and Voltaire. Hopefully my English professor will email me the book list for next year so I can get a head start too!
  • Much of this summer shall be spent squinting at video games. I have a Silent Hill: Homecoming ‘let’s play’ to help make with a buddy, and some god-awful Megadrive (Genesis for American readers) games to complete, laugh at and possibly film with a different friend. I myself have a few games that remain to be finished too.
  • TV: I need to finish watching 30 Rock. Though I’m going to be sad when that day comes! Aside from that I promised friends I’d watch A Game of Thrones, Shameless USA and Stargate. That has comedy, drama, sci-fi and fantasy covered!
  • I plan to watch more Kubrick and Lynch films, as well as other various classics and more obscure titles recommended to me. I’m dying to go to The Lighthouse cinema in the city too, watch some indie films!
  • Friends shall accompany me to a screening of The Room, I don’t care what they say.
  • I want to see more plays. I shall hopefully frequent the Gaiety, the Abbey, the Smock Alley and Gate theatres this summer.
  • Gigs! Iced Earth, Sodom, Norah Jones and W.A.S.P. shall all be playing before I return to college, and Lady Gaga shall be playing when I go back. The ‘Milk and Cookies’ festival in Kildare shall also be a highlight.
  • I want to spend a lot of time outdoors, specifically bike rides and walks around forests.
  • My bass shall be dusted and plucked like a motherfucker.
  • This blog shall be updated more frequently god-damn it!
  • Finally, I need to get fitter. Hopefully the above bike rides will help but I may resort to hitting the gym. Oh I love swimming!

What a list! If I get most of this done I’ll be happy. My first summer-related event shall happen tomorrow: hopefully a barbecue at a friend’s house. And then the Ozrics to look forward to Saturday night!

Summer, it’s been too long. Wanna hang out?

Simon.
