2011

It's almost the end of January already. 2011 has always been stuck in my head as this really really massively important year, and pretty much for one reason alone: graduation.

Although now with 7 weeks left of classes I'm just incredibly daunted and I kind of wish I'd picked an easy course where they give you a choice of questions for your dissertation (not saying that that's the determining factor of an easy course, just that that would make my life a lot easier at the moment!) so that I didn't have to faff around so much. But I guess that's what makes a good accountant, someone who can deal with crippling fear and still be a total douchebag and in love with their job.

Outside of Uni, 2011 holds some fantastic gigs, only a couple so far but big ones. I've got a couple comedy shows to contend with (Russell Howard and Ed Byrne) and some incredibly huge music shows.

First one which is actually pretty soon is My Chemical Romance at the SECC. If the Black Parade tour was anything to go by MCR are most definitely going to blow me away, their whole superhero/comic book personas going along with Danger Days: True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys album is making me super excited to see what kind of performance they're going to give. They were so theatrical before and I think they'll have just upped their game this time round. Although the only downside is, at the previous gig you weren't allowed to take pictures on an actual camera, phone photos were allowed but security were jumping on anyone with even a digital camera, so I really hope I can manage to sneak some quick pics!

Apart from that I'm pee-my-pants excited to say, I'm going to see the Foo Fighters this summer! And that's not all, support comes in the form of Jimmy Eat World and Biffy Clyro! I'd never have imagined I'd get the chance to go to such an amazing gig but my friend bought extra tickets and my mum bought them off of him for me and my brother's Christmas so HOORAY! It's at the Milton Keynes National Bowl so we're making a trip of it, and I've heard MK is a pretty awesome place to see a gig and the Green Day Bullet In A Bible DVD was filmed there so I've seen the kind of stuff they can do. Wouldn't expect to get many great pictures because of the sheer size of the place but I'm really really looking forward to it!
