Trapped in a Book Store? – Yes Please!

Browsing Twitter last night, I found myself jealous of this guy:

 

First of all – WHY WOULD YOU TELL ANYONE!? If I was to find myself locked inside a Waterstones or any bookshop, even a library, I’d be making the most of the precious time, not pleading to get out.  This man clearly either a) hates the smell of books and/or b) he already got bored of drinking free coffee.

Can you imagine the fun you could have though!?

I’d pay someone good money to be trapped in a book store for a night, say… twelve hours?

I’m quite a slow reader so I’d say spending my time reading any full books would be wasting my time. Pfft, you can read a book anywhere, right?

I think I’d head down to the coffee stall first. Get a nice cup of tea, coffee, glass of milk or orange juice, or maybe all of the above! Ooh… imagine all those lovely scones, muffins and other varieties of cakes! I mean, a man has to survive for twelve hours and it’s the company’s fault for locking me in and I’m entitled to compensation.

One thing I wouldn’t do is tweet about it right there and then. I’d take all of my selfies against the closed shutters, with the life-sized Dalek and in some other comical positions. I’d certainly tweet them when I’m released the morning after.

If I got really bored, I’d maybe race the lift a few times, seeing how quickly I could beat it.

If there was a life sized Dalek (I know there’s one in my local Waterstones) I wouldn’t think twice about jumping inside and roaming around the place, up and down the lifts, around all the shelves and aisles, putting on my best Dalek voice.

And then, the icing on the cake would be the most sensible thing to do. Make a giant fort out of books. Yup. A giant fort with turrets and windows and defence mechanisms where I could sit with an iPad or something, eating my cakes and drinking my assorted coffees.

Why on earth would you be desperate to get out of a book store if you were locked in it for a night!

What would you do?

Thank You Hackers

So yeah, I kind of lost my Twitter account tonight.

I actually nearly lost a lot of things tonight including my Facebook account and email account as some bright hacker thinks they can take control of my accounts. The attacks don’t surprise me anymore because I usually get these hacking occurrences once or twice a week. And before I go on, if any hacker of mines is reading this just know that you can get access to every account you want of mines but you’ll never get anything worth while with an empty skull like yours, and I’ll never get tired of regaining access to my accounts.

That being said, my Twitter account has… Disappeared. I got the password reset emails which I didn’t request (the usual signs of a hacker) and then suddenly my account doesn’t exist. At last.

All today believe it or not, I was considering getting a new Twitter account because I was unhappy with the @MeHawth one.

Well now this virtual incident has made me happy because I can start a fresh. I’m not going to follow random people for the sake of following them, but I will follow the people I like, the good people who have connected with me etc.

I’ve never done “follow for follow” because it is just stupid. Most of the followers you end up with only care about having you as a follower and not your content. I’d rather half three followers who care about what I tweet rather than a thousand who just scroll past every tweet.

So, click here to follow me or just search for @HawthMe on Twitter.

An Update on Life

So. Hey. It’s been a while. Yup.

You may have noticed I haven’t been around lately. The reason? I don’t know. For some reason, I just haven’t had the motivation to blog. Instead, I have been getting more and more addicted to twitter and trying out new things on the internet. And you know what? I hate it.

I feel as if doing other things on the internet is taking away my blog from me. That’s something I never want to happen. I love my blog. I have worked hard for my blog, and I hopefully always will. I’m just going through a period of my life when I get stressed and tired towards everything around me. It’s not just happening on the internet and my blog, but it is happening in real life as well. For example, I started school again after the summer holidays finished, only a week ago. I convinced myself that I would study hard every night until my exams come, in about April. I sort of have been. Let’s just say, it is a slight improvement compared to what I did last term which was basically, nothing. But I’m just kidding myself on.

Everything I’ve been doing recently, has just made me feel tired and gloomy; as if I cannot be bothered. I want to be bothered, but nothing gives me the motivation or strength to do anything. I don’t want it to continue for much longer.

As from tomorrow, the start of a new week, I just want to get back to normal and plan my life out. Or my current life anyway. I think I’m just letting the idea of study all the time and never allow yourself leisure time, sink into my brain. But, I know I can’t live life that way. I NEED leisure time. If I just study with all of my free time, then I’ll get bored of it and give up. However, it works the opposite way as well. If I have too much leisure time, then I will not feel the motivation I need to get studying. So, I may actually follow my dad’s advice, and make a schedule, plan my time out well. Don’t worry, I’m not going to put you through the boring phase of reading through my schedule. I’ll keep that painful task to myself.

I have been doing some productive things with my life at the moment however…

 

I’ve become more active on Twitter. I am tweeting up to 20 times a day on a weekend, and just under that on a weekday. I seem to have a love for photo tweeting as well, which I see as a good thing. I’m having the motivation to snap what is around me and post it to twitter. As well as this, I have been using hashtags more often so I can find people with similar interests and they can find me! – I’ve already picked up quite a few followers! I see Twitter as a way of having  a blog but not having to write loads, which is a great way to share something that isn’t worth a blog post.

Having my brain all muddled up has also helped me  have the motivation for creative writing. It has been a while since I’ve done any proper creative writing, and I simply cannot stop writing. So many ideas and plots, it’s unbelivable! I’m loving every moment of it. In fact, I am considering publishing chapter 1 (I know, a short story is turning into a book)  later on today. I just forgot how fun it is to write!

So, there’s my update on life so far. I hope to be blogging  more frequently as I plan my time out better. There have been so many things I have wanted to blog about but I just haven’t been bothered. That’s what I like about Twitter – posting short, snappy things that really do put your mind at rest. It’s great to see what other people tweet as well. I’m discovering more and more of the internet everyday, which is why I follow nearly all of my followers back – to see what their world is like compared to mines! So why not follow me? I’ll probably follow you back, so long as you’re human. (Sorry aliens.)

So, for now, I shall say…

Bye.
