Hello from a place that is not Nottingham! Yep, I moved house. Well, temporarily…ish. I’m in Brighton and Hove now. Yes, Brighton and Hove. That’s what the area of England is called. Honestly.
I am going to be studying Computer Science at the University of Brighton. You see, awhile ago I was going to Bath. They rejected me because I failed my A-Levels. Well, I didn’t fail. I got BBC, which people tell me isn’t bad. But I failed enough to not get into my choice universities. Fortunately (or un, we shall see) Brighton had places in clearing (BBC is dead on in terms of their requirements) and I didn’t fancy repeating the year, especially since the college I was going to stopped it’s Computing course so I would have to go to a different one…yeah, too awkward.
Instead, I begged until they offered me a place in clearing ^^ So, here I am. Hello Brighton and Hove. I frantically found a place to live with some other students whom I have never met, and I moved in yesterday, and so far am the only one living here has been jolly devilishly handsome me.
I met the neighbours (another student house) and they seem nice, but that’s about the extend of my socialisation so far. I’m still getting used to the place. In another day or too, my “joint tenants” will arrive and we’ll all meet face-to-face and the fun can begin.
In the rush I’ve not done much programming lately, though I did make Tic-Tac-Toe with the Project Pauper Framework. That’s…something, right? It’s only like an hour of programming at most. Not a lot, but something. Now I’ve a bit of time I may start work on something else, Space Invaders maybe?
Or maybe I’ll start work on the AudioCore component of Project Pauper…because audio is such a delight to work with…
Quote of the Day
“The true interest of an absolute monarch generally coincides with that of his people. Their numbers, their wealth, their order, and their security, are the best and only foundations of his real greatness; and were he totally devoid of virtue, prudence might supply its place, and would dictate the same rule of conduct.”
Edward Gibbon, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Chapter V
