Yeah? Cool. Savour it. It won't last for very long
but could be going better. I hope they get better first :)
But I can't really complain!
so I'm happy with that for now. Being a pessimist is good, you're much more prepared for the bad stuff I reckon.
nice things have been happening to me and more nice things may happen
i suppose overall they are. i'm getting more input into the things i want to do with my life, and relearning how to use my time wisely. it's a challenge after 5 years of doing fuck all of use with 95% of my free time.
work sucks though. need a new job.
the bad thing will be over soon enough, but may be replaced with another bad thing
after rough half an hour or so. That's about as good as it gets, really.
Yup. And rather than saying, 'I've been through the worst year of my life - what else can happen?' (because that just OPENS your energy up for rubbish), I'm embracing that I've sailed into a bay (or so to speak) and am out of the choppy heads (god I'm full of shit sometimes, yes). I'm happy because I've made some really positive changes in my life I've wanted to make. Shit happens in life - it's how you deal with it that makes the difference. No one is immune to crap. And those people who behave as though they are, are hiding things.
*I thought you were all honky dory, Rik?
Then I get smacked in the face.
for the last 9 years...
to go see Animal Collective?
Maybe meet my first DiSer?
even if it's crap at the moment, it'll get better again and then worse and so on for the rest of your life.
things are ok, I'm just bored and I keep getting stressed but then I feel alright again. the annoyance of being a teenager.
ive got a job i like friends i like, and enough money to socialise and do cool stuff with them.
that money also keeps me in with the material goods which keep me happy, cds, comics, books, dvds, games, football stuff.
and i'm applying for a university course which both interests me and will help to further the career oppotunities i'd like to follow.
but - i'm back at my parents, single, working full time means not that much free time and theres a sort of 60/40 chance of me not getting onto that uni course.
You know, the usual. Money troubles, existential woes, suspected* brain cancer, struggling to reconcile myself with working, trying to focus on one creative task long enough to finish something, stalled in the middle of my book.
Not drinking much, not smoking at all, in a really good new relationship. It's been a lot worse.
my job is great. Im enjoying my life more than i used to, there is room for improvement though.
my life sucks. i am a massive loser
but not going terrible. Just going I guess.
I'm at an all time low. Somebody please pull me out of this never ending downward spiral through a stygian pit of gloom. Still, i'm seeing the National tomorrow, that'll cheer me up won't it?
I'd just quite like it to be the weekend really.
Hope things are ok for you Rik.
no longer homeless, so that's a start.
