Childhood is gone my friends.

Hurrah! It's my birthday! Yes, that's right people, Ben McFeeters is 20 years of age today!

Despite the fact that i have an exam tomorrow, today has been brilliant. Went out with the CHASE crew last night for some Volcanic Steaks and they did not disappoint! You get a 400'C hot piece of rock on your table and you cook your steak on it, it's brilliant fun! We then had a bit of a rock band party afterwards, cheers guys!

Got up this morning and headed to church where everybody had breakfast outside on the grass beforehand! It was an absolute scorcher and the summer atmosphere was totally in action, good times had by all. Came back home and lay in the sun for a while and then got a few presents. Exciting stuff, got a pair of slippers and a belt from the parents and a ps3 game and some nice grooming products from my bro and sis.

Grandparents called in for a while to say hello and then I hit the books for a hour or two of revision. Was a good day, chillin' in the sun, what more could a man want?

Regarding the exam, freedom is a short 15 hours away! My housemate Karl has just bought a jet ski, so i think some aquatic fun is definitely in order!

Strange Days

Surprisingly, this is my first post since the dreaded exam period started. I expected to be on here every other day moaning about how terrible life was because I had to revise. Well here i am, 2 exams down, 1 in about 2 hours and 1 more after that.

Yeah exams suck big time. I think I have just about had it with learning for a while. I mean 16 years is enough of school, right? It is starting to become a bit of a drag.

On a different note, its my birthday in 3 days. I am going to be 20 years old, in the words of a song I like, "these teenage years, no they don't last," true dat. I am relatively sad about this turning of age as it means I am getting slighty old and boring, listening to Neil Young, finding kids very loud, getting sore heads and working in an office 9 to 5. But they say theres no time like the present, so the plan is to just keep on rolling baby. There is no time to be looking back, life is good and will be gone before we know it.

So yeah, that's my thoughful bit over, here's a list of things to do when exams are over:
  • Watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • Fit the dukes of hazzard horn to my car
  • Eat a KFC Boneless Banquet
  • Catch up on Lost & Flight of the Conchords
  • Go on a camping trip
  • Take my dog Buzz for a walk
  • Maybe go for a spin on the skateboard
  • Get a new pair of shoes
  • Read a book
  • PARTY!

Late Night Lucozade Energy

Up half the night working on a stupid project. Ady has done all the work and is still going while me and chris are sitting doing nothing on facebook. Anyway heres whats been going on in the world of ben.

-Got some exams coming up, the usual thing, should be revising a lot but it isn't really happening.

-My friends Paul & Sarah are getting married in about a month, that should be a lot of fun. I'm a groomsman and we are planning the stag trip to Paris! There is 6 of us heading over and the plan is to party and sleep in some super cheap hostel. Have to get berets to wear, complete the look.

-I got a placement sorted for next year which is cool. Working for a little IT company in Holywood (Its where all the stars hang) answering phones and making websites, the guys seem pretty cool so it should be alright.

Yeah thats about it, some exciting stuff happening once exams are out of the way, cant wait!
Heres a game to play, useful and fun! -
