These last few days...

So as I said earlier here is my proper post (:

So ALOT has happened this past week and here is a quick catch up!

Eurovision

So Eurovision was apparently a big hit in the UK, possibly to do with the fact that we had our most decent act in years. The boyband Blue entered for the UK and came in a respectable 12th out of 25. The winner of the competitions was Azerbaijan (which I honestly did not even realise was part of Europe and that made me feel bad), their act was Ell/Nikki (not sure which one is which) with the song 'Running Scared'. Here is their performance taken from the BBC YouTube page:


Football (Soccer to anyone who cares)

So over the last week there has been some huge matches in English football. First of all Manchester United secured their 19th top flight title, this means they have now won more than any other club in history overtaking Liverpool who have won 18.

Also the other big thing in Englsh football to happen was the FA Cup Final, this for people who don't know is a dmomestic cup that takes place every season with every football team in English football leagues being entered. Manchester City won this contest beating Stoke City 1-0. The goal scorer was Yaya Toure who is reportedly getting a salary of around £200,000 a week, so i'm guessing he earned that amount with his goal.

Job Interview

So as I posted earlier I did not get the job I applied for, the ridiculous thing is that I got the job because I was "too old". 

I will be honest with yo here, I am 19, I am a University student who applied for a job at a local Pharmacy who put an advert up asking for a student to work on Satursays.

How the hell am I too old?! Oh well, back to job hunting : /

Britains Got Talent

So there has been little disagreements with people across the UK about a certain act that was on Britains Got Talent. For those that live in America or any othe country, this show is similar to others like it, examples being Americas Got Talent of Australias Got Talent. 

This act performed at an audition (we have not yet got to the live shows) and originally the judges said no they can't go through but after the crowd boo'ed the judges they called the act back out and reversed thei decision. This has never been done in 5 years of the show so it got people talking.

Now I want to get peoples opinion on this, yes I will admit that they are an okay band but comparing them to  even American High School Marching bands I don''t think they were that great. I apologise for having two YouTube videos in one post but this second one has been annoying me for a few days, would you have put them through?

   
Blog Design

As I am writing this blog there is a Photoshop image open in a separate window showing me my final ideas for my logo, hopefully I'll put up a sneak peak of this tommorow. I'd also like to show some other desigs that unfortunately did not make it. Once this is done I will be working on the rest of the page so there are no boring blue sides around my blog.

To Finish

So sorry I have been away for a while, personally it was worth it but even though this bog is a new thing I kina misse it strangely. 

Should be at least a blog every 2 days from now on, hoefully once a day if I get a chance.

Thank you to all my followers and people commenting, love getting feedback!

Now Ihave my iPhone I will be tweeting more, for those that do not know my Twitter it is - twitter.com/mjsquixel

Hope your all good

Peace

  23. Eurovision is so messed up. Neighboring countries giving points to each other etc.. Germany to Turkey, Sweden to Norway, ex-yugo to themselves.

    This should be done anonymously.

  36. @ interview

    Trust me, it's worse than that in my country. The older you get, the worse it gets. Nearly 50% of all 25-year-olds in my country (thos with university degrees) are unemployed.
