Am I Normal?

I've been pondering this question this morning whilst sat on my bus journey back home - 2 hours is a long time sat thinking - and thought I would ask you guys...
Is it normal... To want a Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 job? It seems that nowadays the only jobs going - and trust me I've looked at enough - are all either part time or Saturday work is essential. 
Being only 21 some people would rather be out there having all the free time in the World so maybe I'm just maturing a little too soon?
I can't wait to be settled down in my - hopeful - family, working like I say 9 till 5 Monday to Friday, having the weekends off to play my hockey on the Saturday an eventually start driving lessons on the Sunday. - maybe I'm just a dreamer....
Please tell me I'm not alone in this boat and am not pushing for the unachievable? 

The Endless Job Search...

How many of you guys out there are in the same boat as me? Graduated from University full of hope only to find that weeks and months of job searching and applying has still left us in those summer jobs. Now don't get me wrong I don't dislike my job it's just a lot of travelling!

2 hours on the bus and not being able to see the other half much more than once a week is finally starting to grate on me and I was want a job that I can return home (to my own home) to once I've finished. I think everyone will agree that nothing's better than having a nice relaxing bath before a chilled out night in front of the TV.

I don't want this to be a moaning, negative post which you all read the first line and go away - hopefully you'll have made it this far (yn)! so I shall now aim to lighten the mood.

Hockey - not everyone's forte I understand but as one of my past times I am going full out this year trying to get back into it and regain the fitness levels that I use …

Quotivation #6

I have made a return of this page and hopefully it has been worth the very long wait...

1. I first heard this quote a few years ago but it has been one of those that's really stuck with me

2. I think a lot of people will agree with me on this when that special person enters the room..

3. I think with this one I like the picture as much as the quote and they do really fit together, but alas it is true, just because things aren't going your way at the minute doesn't mean that they wont change around..

4. This pretty much sums up the last one again so nothing else is needed to be said

5. Doesn't this just remind you of being a little kid!!

6. This is a bit like numbers 3 and 4 but on a slightly lower perspective, I do like these funny ones..

7. Hehe, I had to include this one as yesterday one of my friends had to get her uniform for school although no matter how many times she typed it on her phone it refused to say anything but unicorn

8. ..... I don't think anything…

Today was a Good... ish Day!

Howdy there folks....

Today has been a not so different but different day with a mixture of emotions, feelings and happenings.

It started off as any other, waking up to catch the 9 o'clock bus into Skegvegas for work, going through a lovely (cough) shift in the buffet at work then all change. It was a mad dash to one of the local restaurant/bar/nightclubs for one of my friends birthdays which turned out to be some really nice food - I apologise for the lack of pictures but I was starving by this point - and the requisite Strawberry and Lime Koppaberg. The biggest bonus of the meal was being able to catch up with a couple of people that I've not spoken to properly in a fair few months despite being pretty close through work, don't think you can beat seeing an old friend and instantly getting on as if you saw each other just the other day.

After this I (again)had to dash back off to work for another buffet shift which par a few burns I struggled through unscathed and carried…
