Any here are the links:
I may even have to check out the art of manliness site.
Also this make me defiantly believe that feminism is stupid, it's dead now as we're all feminists in a way, as discussed in the second link.

I really enjoyed Star Trek. I thought the way the characters were introduced was amazing and the plot and effects were equally as good. The whole film just worked. I expected it to not live up to my expectations but it surpassed them.
Despite some drama in the build up to the film because we didn't leave enough time to get the doughnuts we'd planned on acquiring to eat in t he cinema. Coupled with by the fact people were queui ng far earlier than we had anticipated meaning we didn't get the best and some more trivial problems with the cin ema I had a brilliant time.
We went to see it at the Imax in Birmingham, the screen was amazing although the whole Imax experience was a little disappointing it remained a joy to watch the film in such great quality.
Some of my gripes about this Imax were certain scenes seemed out of focus which was annoying. Occasionally random bits of dirt would cover large sections of the screen for minuets at a time - clearly something on the lenses which was also annoying.
There was no proper popcorn available and the queues to get food and drinks were to be honest unacceptable.
To conclude I left the cinema having seen Star Trek a very happy man and recommend if you haven't see it yet you make arrangements to do so, if possible at an Imax screen, just not the one in Birmingham.
Tim really bigged up these doughnuts, the plan was to have them at the cinema but we arrived too late to get them in time so we had to get them afterwards.
They were some of the best donuts I've had, they were really fluffy and nice but not being a sweet toothed kinda guy I wasn't that wowed. Give me one of Laura's cheese and ham toasties instead any time any day.
So if doughnuts are your thing Krispy Creme or whatever they were are a good bet, if your not into doughnuts there alright - prob some of the best but don't bother activly seeking them out.

Nobody was in the car when I arrived and although it was wrecked and the airbags had been deployed the middle area where the people sit seemed fine (well it was still there) so I hope everyone was ok. It happened right in front of the fire station so they will have got attention from experts pretty much instantly so I would be optimistic for there chances, I thought it would be insensitive to take a photo just in case as I did not see whatever the other thing involved in the collision was, it was gone.
I took the photo from the tram making sure I didn't get the smashed car in it.
I just makes me think. I went to Jennifer's church on Sunday night and the talk wasn't all gloomy but the question was asked, when someone's taking your funeral what do you want him to mention about your life? The point was the way you live shows where your priorities lie.
I wonder what mine would be like now?
He cared for his family, friends & girlfriend.
He wasted lots of time on the internet.
Loved gadgets and liked fixing things.
He enjoyed working in groups but was sometimes unmotivated to work for himself.
Oh and he did some stuff with Church & like badminton
I wonder how many people think church (i.e. Being a Christian, my relationship with Jesus & Christian community) is an important part of my life? I think whatever that number is, the number that think this is the top priority in my life is certainly smaller.
After careful consideration maybe these people would be right maybe they know me better than I know myself. I think I've been selfish in terms of how much time I've given up for God since I left York and that's not good.
I am going to aim to work on this from now onwards.
What do you think people would/ will remember you for?
Does this reflect what you want them to remember?
What do you remember me for?
What are the first 5 things you think of when you see the name Sam Stow?

I have to apply soon, there are still places on the ICT course at hallam
I may need to have experience in the classroom already :( 100 hours prehaps which is rubbish.
I'm excited and would really like to do it.
Spent most of the day today with Jordan and Scott revising which was useful.
I have to get something to eat now, I'm so hungry! Then more dissertation work.
I also had a really useful chat with my course leader, he's a genuinly good guy to be fair I'm not sure he knows my name but he deffo reckonised my big glasses!

I first of all tried my hand at a black duck tape wallet but it was thick and I've grown attached to my see through masterpiece.
I swapped out the stupid driving licence bit moved it in with my rail card then in place of slot I added my new tram pass I added magnets all over so it kind of nicely clicks shut and stops things falling out hopefully.
One day I may find the money to upgrade to a woven steel wallet, however at this stage in my life (at Uni and still having a y.p rail card) the designs are to simple for my very unique needs combined with my desire for the best possible solution. One day I will have less, but maybe by then I will have my wallet phone solution I dream of :p
I just realised I have no money in it on any of the photos, oh well never mind the post got spell checked this time at least.
Maybe I'll fill it with a big wedge of cash on my final student loan instalment...
