Tag: Imagine Dragons


So, I should technically be on placement today but I had arranged some annual leave before I was told that placements would be on Mondays as well as Tuesdays for a few weeks! So instead of losing it, I moved my placement to Wednesday. As long as I do the hours, it doesn’t matter when I do them.
It’s a fairly easy week anyway with just three early shifts. Two in placement and one on my own ward.

There’s only another three weeks to go before I have some more annual leave and I really can’t wait for that one.
Me and Ian are going to be spending 4 days in London and seeing Imagine Dragons at the O2. Excited is an understatement, although I’m not so sure Ian is looking forward to the show so much. Not really his cup of tea. Oh well, he can be my cameraman and get some pictures and video for me while I enjoy the show.

Speaking of Imagine Dragons, I’ve just watched the Mission: Impossible – Fallout Superbowl trailer and I have to say, I LOVE the use of Friction by Imagine Dragons and the way it’s been mixed with the Mission: Impossible theme!! Very clever.

We got another trailer release during the Superbowl last night too.
Solo: A Star Wars Story.

I have to say, my interest has piqued just a little.
I’ve been very dubious about this film from the start, from the announcement of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo (Bad choice IMHO) right through to the last minute change in Director, which is also a bad Omen.

Anyway, judging by this teaser, the feel of the film is actually quite good. I love anything Imperial and the visual image of that Star Destroyed coming through what looks like a cloud/vortex is stunning!

I guess we’ll be finding out in May if it’s any good. I know that it’s not being well received by fans who are not happy about ‘anything’ these days tbh!

Anyway, back to today.
I think I’m going to get stuck back into my book. I started reading ‘Beautiful Boy’ yesterday and it’s really good. It really makes you think and you feel so sorry for the Dad who did everything right in his child’s life. Did everything he could to ‘prevent’ the events of the book but at the end of the day, it’s the child’s decision to do what they do.
I’ve only just got to Nic graduating from High School. I suspect the rest of the book will have me in pieces, especially as I have a clear image in my head of Timothee Chalamet playing the role in the soon to be released movie of the same name.

First, I have to do a quick trip to Tesco.
I don’t need much but it’s movie release day and I want to have a look at what’s out.

I’ve just done my morning troll through the internet with my cuppa and I just had to post this.

Collider.com have released a review of Peter Rabbit and although they don’t exactly pan the movie, they don’t really sing it’s praises either.

However, they do state the following…..

“The one shining aspect of the film is Gleeson. He basically plays Thomas McGregor like General Hux got a garden. His deadly serious tone and physical comedy are perfectly pitched, and he manages to walk the line between a guy who wants to murder our heroes (despite the rabbits not being particularly likable) and the love-interest for Bea. It’s an impressive turn in a movie that doesn’t really deserve his talents. While it’s no surprise that Gleeson is talented at comedy (he got his start on the Irish sketch comedy series Your Bad Self), the movie is at its best when the focus is on McGregor rather than Peter”

YES!! General Hux with a garden!!

Placements, transfers and dragons, Oh My!!

So! October is out of the way.
I passed my Anatomy and Physiology exam with 74% giving me an A-.
I’m very happy.

I should be hearing about the results on my reflective case study essay any day now and I have a few more weeks to wait for the result on my project preparation report.
Fingers crossed I pass both.
I really don’t want to have to re-work them. I just want a breather for a while.
My next and final essay of the year is not due until Dec 18th but it’s probably the toughest one to write so far so will need all  my attention. I can’t be doing with having to worry about re-writes!!

Anyway, placements continue.
I’m in my second set and they are all in adult mental health.
So far they are going well. I actually really enjoyed myself yesterday with the crisis team. I look forward to being with them again next week.

Today I got to do something I never get to do at work. I got to transfer a patient to another hospital.
A simple transfer that just needed an escort. It was a good experience and I got to see Addenbrookes, a hospital I’ve never been to before.
The only downside was I had to start work an hour and a half early so I was up before 04:30 am in time to have a milky coffee before getting into work for 6am.

Anyway, that was work and Uni over the last few weeks.
In my private life a snap decision was made this week. I found Imagine Dragons having a tour and I just LOVE Imagine Dragons.
Mum and Dad agreed to get me and Ian tickets for a show at the O2 in London next year for our Xmas present and after Ian agreed to it as well, it was a done deal.
Tickets were purchased!! Can’t wait to get me some of this!

We’ve decided that because the show is so near to Ian’s birthday, we’re going to make a few days of it and have booked three night in a hotel down the road.
We love going to London. This time around we’re going to see if there’s a theatre show we can see last minute.
I would also like to go back to the Picturehouse Central. Beautiful cinema.

Anyway, back to tonight and bed I think.
Got to be up early again for work tomorrow.
