|||||Time Spent Diving - 'Rain on Sundays'||]|
I have been out testing my journalistic skills! Sunday: Interview with half brother's best friend's band, The Aviators scheduled. They have been appraoched by several record companies, including Sony, but have not yet been signed. My dad drove me to the University of Surrey in Guildford and we spent a fair twenty minutes or so trying to find the damn building, such a confusing campus! But we arrived on time and were sat complaining about how the band had not arrived, and that the people next to us were smoking. Over an hour later my half brother strolls in and greets the people beside us and we realise that we have been sitting next to the band the whole time!
I conducted the interview (despite leaving the dictaphone in the car) and there was a round of applause and a "we were waiting for you to say that!" when I stated that the bassist looked like Kelly Jones of the Stereophonics. They were really funny guys and the gig was brilliant.
I'm a little sore at the moment because I strained the tendons in my legs at work the same day, and somehow developed an allergic rash on my hands, all from lifting and stacking Argos catalogues!?! The following day was quite nice because I was stood admiring buskers (a dude with an acoustic guitar and a pretty woman with a big cello) in the snow with some college friends, singing along to 'Golden Touch, 'High and Dry' and 'In My Place'.
Today was a lot of fun, I met with Scott, who had to suffer through my idea of a meal (mini pizza with smiley face chips!!!) and mad antics! We spent most of the day feeling the effects of the coffee which strangely enough makes me very sleepy.
Now I must go to bed and get up tomorrow thinking "AGGH! COLLEGE! I'M BEHIND AND DEMOTIVATED!" Ahem.
