Try saying that to someone who has rent and bills, stuck in a job they hate but cannot afford to leave. Ahem.'Money shouldn't stand between you and creativity', easy to say if you're 20, living at home and have no responsiblities.

The new ANPR parking arrangements at @NorthBristolNHS is an utter joke. How is queuing out the door for 10 mins better than buying a ticket?

They're taking the joy out of my day.All email is now being monitored by HR for 'inappropriate content', which means I can't email people and kick off with "Morning shithead"."Where 'good-enough' is good-enough" New corporate slogan.

i5 quad core. 12GB RAM. InDesign still takes over a minuet to launch.But in other news, I'm going to try out my sweet DIY iPad dash mount to make time lap films of the horrendous traffic.Too many things to do today. Whatever happened to Do One Thing Well? In this place you have to do everything, or nothing gets done.Good lad. “@wilw: Introduced my son, Nolan, to Knight Rider tonight. He was skeptical, but because he was raised right, he loved it.”

Take your minge and move! #GoggleboxFriday exasperation. I have no words. I need a holiday.Greens polled 1.1 million votes & gained 1 seat. SNP polled 1.45 million & gained 56 seats. Isn't our electoral system wonderful? #GE2015

Read: "work for peanuts, we'll steal your ideas, then let you go"."Six month trial, then we'll decide if you've got a job" in essence is what I'm seeing a lot of in the jobs pages.Those eBay sellers that list themselves as in the UK, then you find your thing is coming from Hong Kong, with a much longer lead time. Great

I've had three near accidents today. The common theme between them all? BMW drivers. They're all cocks. #bmw #cocksUltron Update: Meh. It was OK. Not as good as the first. Felt rushed for a 2h20 film. Frankly bored of the MCU. And Ant-man looks just awfulDispatched from the UK, apparently. Maybe the person writing the description was using englash as only a rough guide. http://t.co/cT8J6Peu4Z

Read most of the big reviews now. It's very clever, but I am still amiss as to what the Apple Watch is actually for?I didn't even pick up a pencil for the whole weekend. Now I must return to the bread & butter creatively malnourished. Maybe next week eh?Ever have one of those weekends where you feel you could have achieved more with 48hrs out of the office?Chemicals harmful to health if you inhale them shocker. Who knew? https://t.co/7ygrJrMRG1Applying the ethics of @CaseyNeistat I feel it is no ones bike. Chain off, flats, unmoved for weeks. That 10 speed is mine on Monday.

Sorry @elementary I'm going to stop seeding, got to try out Freya.What Linux lacks is viable open source video editing. Once there's a premier pro or fcpx alternative, I am going totally Linux.I am actually putting off going to the toilet for this.USB formatted. Terminal open. dd ready. 12 mins to go. @elementary@goddardlewis @elementary I was about to say, I wish there was a torrent, and the universe has provided one. Thanks Lewis.You better wait though. Looks like SourceForge is taking a pounding. Download has gone from 14m to over 3hrs for @elementary Freya. Sadface.Ddownloading the latest and greatest @elementary version, Freya, now.

The last few years we’ve been living in the post smartphone generation, and all the kids are so much dumber now. So dumb. So utterly dumb.Looking at all these students work, makes me wonder what they’ve been learning for the last 2 years? Snapchat, mainly.
