It's my 3rd e2 birthday.

My life at the moment feels like it's at a tipping point. Got another maths exam coming up. University applications. More stuff like that. That perspective recasts the dullness that I've been feeling of late as a calm before the storm. Bring it, frankly, on.

The death of John Peel has struck me pretty hard, even though he was mostly a peripheral figure for me. Maybe because I've been listening to the radio basically non stop since I heard the news. BBC Radio is mourning the loss of one of it's own, and it's rubbing off on me and contributing to my own feelings.

Man, what a sappy paragraph. John Peel is dead. Raise a glass, play a record, here's to his memory.

Right. Let's get on with it.
