And still…

Microsoft have not sorted this issue out…



Graduation, Future Plans and XBOX Automatic Renewel Cancellation Woes

So I’ve graduated, and now have officially no plan in life. Its absolutely mad. I have now fulfilled my education as far as the state will carry me, and to go further (as in pursue a Masters) I would need 4,500. Even worse if I wanted to pursue my legal education and become a solicitor I would need a further 15,000! Sadly neither option is feasible and my life has become a standard pitiful tale of no direction. Currently it consists of speed reading all the Harry Potter books (and watching the films) before I go to see the final film on Sunday, and the highlights of my week for the past five weeks has been waiting for Naruto, One Piece and Fairy Tail to come out on Mangastream. At least I’m going to Bath (the town) next week with the g/f and some Uni friends. One small thing to look forward to.

As for the future, the only thing I can think to do is travel. Its something I really want to do, and I’d love an excuse to practice my Italian, but this requires the same thing to amount to a success – money. These lottery tickets better start cashing in…

In other news – screw XBOX Live. as some of the few readers may know with the latest revamp online, they took away the ability to cancel the monthly automatic renewal subscription effectively turning it into a direct debit with no way to cancel unless you call up the notoriously bad customer support line. I have never been bothered to do this. However it may surprise you to know that they secretly brought this feature back. However there is just one major problem – IT WON’T GO THROUGH!!


Better Times

So everything has been sorted at university, and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 was finally delivered (albeit a day late), so finally I seem to have things going my way for once. I’m soooooo poor. The funding for my netbook has made its way out of my bank account but it was sooooo worth it! I’ve installed Microsoft Office 2007 on it so I can do those much needed essays. Speaking of which, I’ve got one for consumer protection law that needs doing right about now…

Things finally seem settled. J


Man, lately my life has just plain sucks. I’ve had several problems at university (timetable clashes) which no one seems to be sorting out. My year 3 rep is useless and I am struggling in my third year to cement down my actual timetable and get enrolled in the proper courses. I won’t delve into specific details but its all very stressing. Because my timetable still hasn’t been sorted out it means I can’t lay down an effective study schedule.

In other news I’ve been trying to get Naruto Shippuden Ultimate: Ninja Storm 2 BUT IT IS SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE!! I phoned up Gamestation’s Camden Town branch and attempted to reserve it. When I got there they had said another women had reserved it in her name. Its like the universe doesn’t want me to be happy. Though on tuesday I did buy a snazzy new netbook so its not all bad. it was supposed to be a grade-a model (a factory refubished but good as new) and it really is good as new. Works like a charm, makes taking notes in lectures so much easier. Take it where ever I go. Shout out to the guys at for a great service. (It was listed as a 160gb model, but came with 250gb).

That’s all for now. Hopefully things will get better soon. šŸ™‚

Parcel force tracking has told me that Naruto has been mis-sorted and has been misdirected to the Coventry sorting office. WTF… I’m requesting that next day delivery charge back.
