I start my Open University degree today. I'm pretty happy that the OU exists because from 16 to 22 I've just been about having a good time in life and never really concentrated on my future or did anything to contribute towards it. Around September time last year I really assessed my situation and came to the OMG epiphany that I need to get my lazy arse moving before I become one of these sad 35 year old burger flippers.
The degree is a BSc (Honours) Computing with Business which I thought was a good qual to get as its pretty varied and I'm already quite versed in the I.T side of it. I never thought I'd say this but it actually feels good to know I'm going to be sitting down a couple of hours everyday and doing something constructive with my time.
Anyway, tonight is Operation: Relationship Jumpstart! I am going to get my girlfriend to go out by any means necessary.The plan is to suggest a trip to the casino, she is a roulette fiend so I know this will work. Once were out I'm going to ply her with fancy cocktails and when she's sufficiently tipsy I'm going to suggest hitting the town. It seems a little underhanded but I know once she's out she'll have a great time. Bring on tonight, lets hope there's no disappointment.
