This town is becoming like a Ghost town…

Sometimes you can only express your feelings toward a town with Specials Lyrics.

Traditionally my group of friends have had their weekly night out on a Thursday night – its toward the end of the week to get you in that relaxed weekend mood, the pubs are fairly full and most importantly its student night — which means cheap drink and more money left over for KFC! Seens as I leave Saturday it was evident that tonight would be my final night out in Dunstable.

I spent it with these Jokers!

My lovely girlfriend Jess and two of my close friends, Sam and Shaun — the picture sums them up perfectly.

However, these were the only people out – not just in our group of friends, but pretty much the only people out in the (usually) busiest pub in Dunstable. It shows how much of a difference the exodus of University Students makes to the town, and in just two days I’ll be one of the many who have left.

In lighter news we’ve finally managed to get round  nameserver issue which was preventing users from being able to access worldwide lighthouses — A website my brother and I work on (he provides the content, I work on the back-end systems and produce a custom content management system. Hopefully the new version of the site which is built with mobile browsing, HTML5 and faster server-side processing should be ready before I leave or shortly after.

Thats all!

Final Days…

Today is my final Wednesday in Dunstable for a few months, and possibly the last wednesday where dunstable is my perminant residence. This is both exciting and unnerving, a relief and a worry. Though I’ve moved house once before I’ve always lived in Dunstable so this will be one of the biggest changes I’ve ever gone through. As well as change of location I’m moving away from my Family, Girlfriend and Friends — all of whom are incredibly important to me.

The last two years of my life have certainly been the best so far, I’ve made some incredible (hopefully lifelong) friends, met my girlfriend and generally had a great time, so moving on without these people with me is daunting, however I can’t wait to meet new friends and discover more about what it is to be an independent adult – as well as have great fun and learn more about Computer Science.

So, I have two days and nights left before I leave at 7am (ish, depending on my ability to wake up) Saturday morning and I intend to make the most of them, spending lots of time with those dearest to me (even though a lot of my close friends moved away last weekend).

This all sounds gloomy, even though it is in reality the start of possibly the 4 most exciting years of my life! So in other good news I spoke to the bee keeper man again today and provided him with some examples of my previous work — namely http://www.semiskinned.co.uk and http://www.worldwidelighthouses.com Hopefully he’ll get back to me either tonight or tomorrow and ask me to carry on with the project, which will be great news!

Thats all for now – thanks for reading,

Danny.
