Last Day Of College

Yes its true, yesterday was my last ever day in college, was a good but sad day. We all stayed out in Oldham after college for a drink, to celebrate it being the last day or whatever. and quite a lot of people came. which was good. (see pic to left - click to enlarge)

Mixed emotions really, I'm glad that I've left college n the fact that i have finished my courses and don't have to go in for them again. but when i think about how good it was, in classes, all we really did was mess around all the time and spoil other peoples education, which was a laugh, and i had good teachers as well that i got on with. even though they might not have got on with me. Also outside of lessons, ill miss renting out the sports hall and playing football, going Alexandria park, the thrill of waggin' lessons, spur of the moment trips to the pub, some people who ill probably never see again, people who i got on with but never really thought about asking for their numbers or anything and everything and whatever else here is to be added to the list. You can only really truly realize how good something is after its gone...

but never mind, when i look at the good things that have come out of college... I started bike riding, i will soon have qualifications that i will never use, made some new good friends, learnt how to play poker, won my teacher at connect4, won my maths class in the connect4 championships, made "A Day in The Life of Josho" video and lived off other people's hard-earned money by taking free education, and more or less wasting it! :D (sorry to all you honest tax-payers) . so its been a good 2 years.

anyway this morning i spent a lot of time rooting through my pictures, finding all the ones that have been from college since i started, and put them into a gallery for you to see.

Below are a couple of the pictures I took on our last day, these are in the gallery above as well, but still thought id put a few of the new ones up here (Click to Enlarge and see the picture better)...

Janet's 50th

Yes happy birthday to Janet Lowe everybody this weekend she had a surprise party prepared for her at the Milnrow Cricket Club. and it all went well! she was fooled until the last second, ill tell you the story behind it, so if anybody else wants to do a surprise party you can do the same!

A week before the event my parents rang up Janet inviting her out for a meal on Saturday night. and so then come Saturday night and my parents go to pick up Janet and Ian, and say "oh, we haven't got the table booked until 8, and I need to go down to the cricket club to ask about Josh's (my) 18th, why don't we go for a drink whilst we are there?". "Ok" replies Janet! so they walk in and Janet walks in first, and we turn all the lights off hit the spotlights facing them and then everybody shouted "happy birthday!". and she was very surprised! it was brill! :D.

And i had to prepare music for the disco, which was ok at first. but then near the end of the night, people kept approaching me asking me if i was the D.J, after i blatantly said no i wasn't, but still i got asked to put songs on, and then i never played them, and i got abuse given to me by old drunk people! mint! not.

anyway, bye yo!

Current Trig Champ

Yep Its True As Of Yesterday i am the current trig champion. as most of you will know, the Trig war is on between me and Benjamin Hepworth, and last week he was 2 trigs in front of me. and thats how the war started. however yesterday, i had the sudden urge to go on a bike ride, so first i went to college and went to my computing class with all my biking gear on.

so i set off initially to get just one trig and then head home and it would have been about 30 km, instead as most people who know me may have guessed i got a bit carried away and rode down into Hyde and up round he hills to get my self 3 trig points. And it was wonderful because no one was there to say "Josh I think were going too far, lets turn round". so i ended up doing 60 km with 1 km of climbing, which is quite a lot, and eventually got back home.

so like now the score is 37 - 36 to me. woo, and that score will keep rising, make sure toalways check out my trig page to see how i am doing on the pic's section.

click here to check out my trigs and find out what they are.

Eurovision 2007

Wow, well what can i say, its possibly the best event of the year, such an exciting non-political time which really brings all of Europe together, and shows how a really nice continent we all make.


Possibly actually the worst event of the year "You don't know weather to laugh or cry." (Quote Sir Terry Wogan). Its so lame i think you have to laugh, it wouldn't quite be the same without him doing the commentary, if he didn't i think a lot of people in Britain would have committed suicide tonight. anyway enough with this blabber down to what we all want to see. the results!

for once Great Britain didn't finish last, and we got some points this year! a grand total of 19 which put us in second to last position, possibly a record for the UK? the UK entry this year showed the English music industry at its best with the well known band "Scooch".

The winner this year was this horrible mess, some stupid ugly fat foreign Serbian dyke...
(WARNING: don't look at this following picture for too long)

It actually pains me to look at her. this sort of rubbish just reminds me of how foreign people are all freaks, and it makes me glad that I'm British and not one of them.

It was probably the worst song I've ever heard. There is something seriously up with Europe.

Tip Of The Week: Get out whilst you still can!

Alton Towers

The Oldham Bros invaded Alton Towers on Saturday this week, it was well fun. its the first time I've ever been, and it was good, it was very busy tho, since it was May bank holiday weekend and we only went on 7 rides in the space of 7 hours! madness!

Log flumes are obviously the best rides on theme parks, i dnot know why but they just are. flying though the air at 100kph accelerating at 4.7G's just doesn't quite beat floating down a large pipe in a bathtub.

Anyway you can see us on the log flume (pictured left: click to enlarge) yes we do look a bit like spastics, but i can assure you we are putting it on.

Rite well I've had enough of blabbering now, and I'm bored because I WANT TO WATCH SPIDERMAN 3 so badly. heres another picture of us at Alton Towers. having fun at base camp. and thats about it for now! b-bye.

The War Is On!!

Rite I think its about time I shared my thoughts on this boy (pictured left) he thinks he's so good but some day soon hes just gonna get knocked out, he thinks he's so good just because he currently has claimed 36 trig points, (if you are unsure on what trig points are just look here) and i have only currently claimed 34 due to this he recs he can now prance round thinking hes well better than me. Could he be MORE WRONG! he can just wait until i come back from my mass trig collection because I'm gonna get 50 in total before I'm 18, and lets see if hes still acting cocky then ey?

so if you see this fool walking round or something make sure you nudge into him and be rude or something like that, don't worry hes soft so he wont do anything.


Also on the topic of wars, Liverpool got through yesterday, and Man Utd are gonna get through tonight so its gonna be a Liverpool vs Man Utd final which is gonna be well good to watch, COME ON LIVERPOOL!! THE WAR IS ON!!!

and the moral of this post is that Wars are well good fun, yeah! on that note, bye, and go start some of your own wars!


Man Utd lost against AC Milan 3 - 0 so now the war is off.. oh well, my war is still on!
