kelzadiddle: (UFO Club Poster 1)
I've decided to start compiling a memoir about my three months with The Prince's Trust team programme. I was toying with the idea months back - hell, even before the course was finished - but yesterday, in a moment of otherwise idleness, I started scribbling down, in no particular order, stuff that I remember happening throughout the course. What we did, what I got up to 'outside the classroom' with my new-found compadres, why, how I felt about it... and so on and so forth.

The end result, I hope, will be a wholly honest and comprehensive recount of my experiences. Leaving out nothing except the things I know for a fact that people would be uncomfortable with me divulging - the really personal stuff.

It should be an interesting story to do, especially in this day and age, because it shows thirteen young people with different problems of varying degrees working for a whirlwind three months to become better people. I'm hoping to convey the processes that we all went through together, and the thoughts and feelings and changes that I went through personally. My best moments and my worst, the good times and the bad, the difficult bits and the easy, and my own thoughts of 'where are my problems? Do I really need this course?'.

I seem to have recalled about 40-50% of the stuff on my own, but there are huge gaps in the chronological plan I've been scribbling up, particularly in the induction week (week 1), the community project (week 3 for prep, 4/5 for the actual project) and next steps (week 9).

A lot of the earlier stuff should be found on my journal. I definitely remember writing a lot about weeks 1, 3, 4 and 5. Residential got not a single entry because I was denied computer access all that week. I could also contact Vicky and Tim about the possibility of getting my project folder or having a chat about what we did.

Anyway... )

Re-enter the Meme

I did this meme ages ago and thought it might be interesting to do it again, to see how I've changed these last two years.

1- Elaborate on your default icon.
It's a section taken from the cover of a psychedelic compilation album called 'Insane Times', which is named after the wonderful Kevin Ayers' tune 'Song for Insane Times'.

2- What's your current relationship status?
Once again, not single! And again, I think someone's been fiddling with reality... probably my characters. The bastards.

3- Ever have a near-death experience?
Oh, let's see. I've lost count of the amount of times I've nearly been killed crossing the street. My home town (Portadown) has been bombed a couple of times - the first of which happened when I was a baby, shook a window loose, it swung shut and narrowly missed my head. That would have easily killed me. I nearly suffocated on calor gas as well when it was leaking in my Mum's motor home. And I've nearly choked on an ice cube when I was six.

4- Name an obvious quality you have.
I have a face. It's very facial in its appearance.

5- What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now?
'Song for Insane Times, because I mentioned it in the first question!

More questions under the cut... )

Happy New Year!

I did a meme, as snagged from [ profile] wilky_wit. You probably know most of this already - though there are a few snippets of Kelza factdom that you probably don't. Anyway, this is my year summarised. I've had a deliriously good 2010, and I hope you'll have the same for 2011. As always, great to talk to you guys on here! I don't know where I'd be without you lot! (Alone on the Internet, I suppose...)

And it's under the cut... )
