Through the keyhole of Dave

I have opted to give you a look into life in wales. It takes a while to get you used to, but once your here then its easy enough.

To begin Cardiff Central (Caerdydd Canolog) , the gateway into the city.

Ah lovely (spoken like a true welshman).


We can see here the Millenium stadium which is one of the first things you see coming into Cardiff.


Erm try to ignore this when you get here.


This is where the magic happens. I.E it is the Uni main campus where we have lectures and such.

Now to where I live in Talybont South. This is the sort of middle class area of the Talybont complex. To describe it, it's kind of like a housing estate but with no chavs or graffiti. When I say middle class though it's only because our houses arn't as nice as the new ones in Talybont Court which cost a bit more or the outdated old houses in Talybont North (or the Talybronx as we here call it).


I would post a picture of my house. House 26, but I haven't yet taken a picture of it but I will probably a…

What the hell is going on?!

Yo

I could begin this post with Welsh like saying Creso (welcome) but to be honest I'd rather distance myself from that language as much as possible for obvious reasons.
I just wanted to keep this blog going and keep everyone updated on the goings on here in Cardiff as quite a few things have happened.

As you may expect lectures have started but its's all been very interesting so far. Its been quite quirky too, for instance in my first lecture we ended up viewing a clip of the Simpsons and an American Football game, albeit only so the lecturer could demonstrate his point. Things got weirder by the end of the week when in Cultural Critism I was asked to culturally consider a giant box of cornflakes. Yes indeed, lectures have been anything but dull.

Other happenings; I've been out a few times this week, One notable occasion was where I went to see a stage hypnotist. Now I have never before in my life seen a live hypnotism and have regarded it with a mixture of sceptism and curi…

Wow I'm In Wales

Thats right readers I'm now at University. The University I've ended up with is the good old Cardiff University, Which I've got to after a fair deal of Wrangling.
Long story short I got 2 UMS below the needed grade of ABB and then got a remark which boosted me to that level.

Anyway I'm here now and I'm settling into my new student digs. So far I've met 7 of my 8 flatmates. Sadly all are men although we have a fair few girls across the hall and upstairs but its not the same really. Having lived in a house of all males for the past 4 years I hoped for a bit of a change but to no avail sadly.
However complaints aside my new flatmates seem nice. They are Will, Matt, Simon, Rich, Lee, Vince and Mysterious Asian Guy (Naturally None of us have met him yet but hope to soon and learn his true name).

It proved an interesting first day. After feeling very distressed at leaving my home for nearly 19 years me and my Dad took the long journey up the M4 to Wales. When I arrived I…

Do Childrens TV presenters make sexual innuendo on purpose or am I just sick minded?

Well exams are now finished thankfully so I now have a rediculous amount of freetime. Although yesterday involved going to Thorpe Park, I'm going to follow a different theme.

As you can see from the title I'm going to explore the age old question of do childrens presenters/programmes include sexual innuendo on purpose.

From a young age we were all exposed to childrens shows like Postman Pat and such. We also had to deal with the tiresome antics of the presenters between programmes. Anyway this is what brought me to this question. The other day when I had woken up early for an exam I happened across Cbeebies (a programme for very young children for those of you who don't know)



These are the kind of fools we can find on this show. Anyways while watching this the presenters were pretending to be a train. The woman preceeded the man in an up the arse kind of way and held two heldlamps in an unsubltle way over her chest. This got me thinking. Did they just do this fomation out of …

The end of an era

So ladies and gentlemen I'd like to thank you for coming here in the first place considering I haven't posted for many moons.



But yes folks your high frilled host is making a comeback of sorts.

A lot has gone on recently and its going to take me some time to fill in all the gaps. But I'll list a couple of key events:

-I went out to vote for the first time which proved interesting

-I bought a car


Its pretty awesome and has remote central locking. (HAH IN YOUR FACE JON)


I'll start by rounding up the most obvious of happenings, naturally things have been winding down (or up depending on your personal perception) at school as the dreaded exams draw closer. As a matter of fact I had one the other day which was went ok I feel. Still though thats one down four to go.

The first event in this spiral of denoument was the sixth form prom or ball or whatever you want to call it as long as it isn't Homecoming. WE DON'T HAVE THAT HERE AND WE DON'T WANT TO EITHER!

The night was f…

Take the Seven Deadly Sins Quiz

This doesnt look too good does it.

Also I should hasten to mention that I am writing this post on the eve of a very annoying week in which I have two quite tough exams on the same day and furthermore a driving test. To put simply my anxiety levels have hit a critical mass.

Still some good has happened recently:
I now have five out of six Uni confirmations from: Staffordshire, Cardiff, Lincoln, Winchester and Kingston. To be honest though non of them will prove difficult to get into except maybe Cardiff who actually are asking for decent grades (in this case ABB). Then again I wont really be able to assess how tough this will be until I get the January results but if all goes well I might have an easy may exam period Hopefully.

Anyway boring school stuff aside the last few weeks have consisted of a mixture of school, parties and christmas so a lot has gone on.

Everyone seems to…
