I'm on a train home. Manchester was well good. Looking forward to going to bed soon. Not looking forward to work tomorrow :(
I've just watched a program on Belgian art, probably the first thing I've actively enjoyed watching on tv for years. Wish I was an artist.
I didn't know it was on tonight. I'll probably watch it in iplayer tomorrow.
I work in a castle, when I describe my job it sounds much better than it actually is. I'm leaving in 6 weeks or so though. That makes me so happy :)
Not too patronising and also didn't make me feel a shamefully smug wanker either.
I'd trade my job for working in a castle any day!
That makes you an artist of some sort, which is more than most people can say.
Just washed up my dinner plates. Curry tonight. Bought not made, though I did cook my own basmati rice.
Watched a couple more episodes of Californication. Man that guy has a lot of casual sex. He makes Silks look like a monk, but not a very small monk.
I have started posting relationship advice on a forum. Anyone ever done that? Quite how I imagine I'm qualified to do so, I don't know but I'm pretty confident that my advice has been good so far.
Such good advice but I rarely follow it :/
It's good advice.
Mostly be nice to everyone.
settling in for a nightshift
got m&ms and coffee
my gf just came home with completely different colour hair. awesome
Got turned down for a job below one which I was offered (and had to not do for various reasons). They said I was the best candidate but came across as unsympathetic in the interview. Eh? This DOES free me from the shackles of being some kind of intermediate go to person for everything from computer issues to personal problems though. Can just tell everyone IM GRADE 4 I DONT DEAL WITH THIS SHIT. Motherfuckers. Ive been drinking to celebrate.
This morning I went to the doctors and he just cut me off and was like 'If you don't want to go to stress counselling there's nothing I can do for you!' and I hadn't even mentioned stress once so I just walked out because I'm a proper hard nut and he was actually talking bollocks. He was wearing shorts too and he had horrible knees.
How're you bam?
I am trying to figure out whether i am an asshole who tries really hard to be nice or a nice person who tries really hard to be an asshole, it's a really difficult question to answer!
I'm also thinking about developing a skill, like a proper man skill like cooking or making something
Yeah what if I'd went in about my gross knee phobia before summer had started and there he is wearing shorts. Inconsiderate.
You should probably stop thinking about that and just try and do nice things. Cooking is a good skill. Do that. Impress everyone. I keep wanting to do something proper with wood or something but then I'd hack off me fingers probably.
I want to build a badass custom wooden synth/ipad stand holder thing, I reckon it would be pretty easy I just need man tools like a saw and a some pencils.
Is it weird that sometimes I refrain from being nice mostly because I feel acutely embarrassed for the people I'm being nice to? Like I don't want to put them in an awkward position,
