My Boat Party Experience

I’m happy to say I can cross a mission off my Bucket List!

I imagined my boat party experience to be out of this world and nothing like I have ever experienced before. I mentioned the boat party a few months back and the reactions I received lead me to believe it would be exciting.

I arrived home in the early hours of Sunday morning; I would love to say this is due to having so much fun. I was really looking forward to my Saturday evening, however it didn’t live up to my expectations.

I was psyched about spending quality time with my old school friends. However due to unforeseen circumstances, two of my friends were unable to make it and the first part of the evening was spent pining for our dear friends arrival.

If I had been given a heads up I would have carried a book, a game or even a pair of moon boots! I didn’t expect to be clock watching and deprived of food for 5 hours. Thank you to Lolly the bar attender for sneaking us two small packets of biscuits to keep us going. They surprisingly gave us a little life and this was sadly the highlight of the evening!

In a nutshell, I felt like I had been kidnapped by pirates! My best friend and I were the first people off the boat and we ran off whilst screaming ‘Freedom’ at the top of our lungs. The good news is I will be going to another boat party later on in the year! I have a feeling this one will be 100 times better!

Going, Going, Obsolete!

The technology I miss the most is Portable CD Players! I had quite a few in my time. The last one I owned wasn’t your ordinary CD player, it played MP3/ Data CD’s. I didn’t have to carry around my CD wallet and flick through different CD’s all day. All my favourite tracks could be complied onto one disc, it was a dream come true!

I will never forget carrying it around in the pocket of my hoody (I hated carrying bags back then), or squeezing it into my back pocket.

Remember when manufacturers claimed Portable CD Players were jog proof? Only problem was when you made any movement, your music would move with you! I do wonder if they even last whilst jogging!

Technology has evolved over the years, but nothing beats the sound effects that came with Portable CD Players!
