Exams, work and the future...

I'm sat in work, covering a colleague (the receptionist) while she goes out for her lunch. I'm prepping in part for my Masters exam which is on the 6th May; I have to at least pass it to get my degree. I had a job lined up with a well known medical school/research institute, but due to unforseen circumsrances could not take the position. It's a shame on multiple counts, on a very mundane level it would have seen my wages jump near 3 fold, it would have been a first step on a road to research in the specific field I am interested in. Oh well, I suppose just get this exam boxed off, restructure my dissertation, and hopefully I'll have this degree achieved.

“A Wayward Soul”

So I just entered into a digital distribution deal with ReverbNation, a site where I host my songs for free. It will be interesting to see if I actually sell any. They’re actually available for free from RN, and thus via Facebook and Myspace, but having them available through Amazon and iTunes will be an interesting exercise. Not sure how good the artwork is, but it will do…or rather…it will have to do…

The Hippy versus the Nihilist.

I have an internal debate come conflict going on between a hippy optimist and a nihilist pessimist. I’d love to be able to go with the hippy, thing is when it comes to the ideological battle, the nihilist wins hands down…and nihilist IS a euphemism!!!
