How was your summer?

8/10 Best new summersic

  • Went gallivanting round France for two weeks
  • Got fired* when I got home so no summer stuck in an office - result!
  • Got to travel round the country on trains looking for jobs. I really like trains.
  • Spent time at my parents gaff. Looked for jobs** in the morning then cycled to the nude beach*** in the afternoon to relax and swim in glorious Cornish sunshine.

*Contract not renewed but fired looks better on the CV.
**Mostly read DiS and Twitter
***Its the closest beach to their house I swear

saw two gigs this year! That’s more than I’ve ever been to in a year! In that respect it’s been a good summer.

we all love ya pervo!

Be well and give yourself a big hug, it’s going to be ok :slight_smile:

Went to Austin, Texas in May. Brilliant.

Some idiot at work got a promotion that I wasn’t interested in but now I work under this moron.

Overall. 7/10.

Who are you, thewarn?

1/10

next!

Feel like it completely passed me by.

First half was great, but then I was travelling through Latin America so it couldn’t really not be amazing.

Second half I moved back to the UK after being abroad for 2 years. Which has been a mix of exciting and unsettling, what with new job, house/housemates and opportunities, but also realising that people move on with their lives in 2 years and that a lot of what I had in London say 3 years ago isn’t the same any more.

maybe a 3 or 4. wore shorts for the whole thing and tonight my boss FINALLY said i’m llooking good he also said “you’re really liking shorts at the moment aren’t you”
yes. i am. and it’s good to know it’s appreciated too.
I have an interview tomorrow and if it goes alright it’ll be a 6
Summer’s not over yet guys! making some elderberry jam tomorrow too. :smiley_cat:

went to yorkshire :smiley_cat:

Met a lot of great people (mainly off of here, bike wankers and non bike wankers), went to a lot of lovely places (and Glasgow), spent a lot of good time with my fiancée, went to a great music festival, became an uncle again.

Weather was shit, my commute has been getting to me and has put a strain on money, personal life and relationship over the summer, severe lack of cycling action, I live somewhere where I don’t know anybody so socialising is tough.

Let’s call it a 5/10

Moved to Leeds, went to Berlin, went to Fluff Fest, got a job. 7.5/10

Pretty shit. 3/10.

Probably my least favourite time of the year tbh. Not much eventful happens in my life and for some reason, Summer intensifies this feeling.

I feel like I’m supposed to enjoy myself and make the most of everything, but I never can/do. My friends hardly ever go out on weekends anymore, we still do but not that regularly. Is this what suddenly happens when you’re in your mid-20s? Because it’s a bit depressing. Or do I need to move to a city and make new friends?

Maybe I’m still trying to adjust to life post-uni idk.

Had a wonderful 6 weeks holiday in Ireland, Germany and Italy

Sicily being the absolute highlight, loved it

10/10

Total mixed bag. Moved to Berlin, got to visit Canada and Copenhagen for the first time for music work, but in-between those good things wasted a lot of the summer feeling sorry myself

6.8/10

I can’t remember drinking in a beer garden once this summer.
