what's everyone up to? how's your (love) lives?
I'm in my local having a couple of wines.
Feeling a bit down as I am gonna have to end it with a girl I've kinda been seeing, she's great but something's missing so this has to be done! :(
let's hook up (Y)
feel like there really must have been
probably within the original london lot TM
A couple of engagements too.
But yeah, cool! :)
If so, how did it all turn out?
and need to make it look like i've done stuff.
as for my love life i fancy someone for the first tim ein ages but dunno what to do now (yes im 12)
Are they single?
Is there anything stopping you making a move?
I'm very shy as well, it's tough work at times.
Do you think they're into you, what's the chemistry like?
think so, think it's good but i really need to be explicitly told stuff i'm quite dense at figuring out what people think
I still do it.
Classic fear of massive rejection syndrome probably.
I'd like to offer you some good advice but as I can't heed my own it would be hypocritical.
I do though believe that if two people really
Like each other an opportunity always arises, and you'll both know!
Best of luck gonad! :)
i m not sure though, it'll be fine i'm sure!
got a distinction in my masters :D drinking beer, basking in undeserved glory
And posted and acknowledgment of your distinction! Congrats tirimisu :)
But I'll stay and have another to toast your distinction! :)
Glaswegian in any excuse for another drink shocker!
always happy to be a contributing factor in encouraging reckless drinking habits
i still don't really know what the grading system of my masters is
my uni has a stupid grading system so my actual dissertation mark was A4. but in normal terms that translates to a distinction.
No academic glory sweeter than jammy academic glory. Enjoy.
(i think this is the least surprised i have ever been about anything though haha)
And I am sure it was completely deserved as well. You are awesome <3
Is this a new thing?
but just noticed it looks like i am flashing some cleavage
that works too i suppose
sean should just install an emoji keyboard already
if we're allowed to be brand specific i'd say pringles sour cream/chive but if it's just across the board flavour i'll say salt n vinegar
yeah salt n vinegar is probably on average better than most flavours (i guess salted if you're classing that as a flavour, sorry lo-pan, but it's kind of a non-flavour as it's the default) cause all of the others vary loads between brands but salt n vinegar always tastes like vinegar
Cod they go well In sandwiches and taste good after chocolate!
knew someone once who had nutella and ready salted crisp sandwiches
tangy crisps are good
can't remember what ketchup ones taste like
apart from ketchup, obvs
but the lad image that they cultivate makes me sad about that.
always have a football/darts/'win a lads night out' competition running on them
they're really desperate to assert their masculinity which is stupid cause they're crisps. saw in asdas that they do 'twice flavoured' mccoys now. twice flavoured.
wait for it...
it's not really big over here though is it? idk, it's really good though.
I've got a swollen, festering, seeping saddle sore in the no-mans land between my thigh and bollocks. Its deeply unpleasant and I can't see a doctor till Thursday, by which point it will probably have abscessed and I'll have to have it drained. Happy monday.
if its painful/possibly infected could you go to minor injuries?
I don't think it is...why didn't I learn something productive ffs
You'll be reet
put out as much music as you want/feel
you're your own artist
you call the shots
It's actually really hard to do something just for yourself when you think about it. I mean most 'goals' especially ones that take years have other tangible benefits, to your health, wealth, status, respect etc.
Either the rewards not what I imagined, or the method has somehow taken more out of me, or sometimes I'll self sabotage to fuck things up just before I finish anything
So I can only really do something if I feel like it just that moment, or it goes completely wrong. Im probably over analysing it?
Poor RFWare...life's gonna be tough for you too :(
I just can't handle the stress and pressure anymore. And my manager is inexperienced and a borderline bully and I cba with dealing with him.
if you feel like quitting then it's probably not worth going what you're going through daily with a shit boss and colleagues x
But if it's getting you down and you can cope for a bit without a job then it might be for the best.
if anyones up for it
for basically the exact same job, but at different companies (junior marketing)
feels quite scary (and a bit unclean) going all PRIVATE SECTOR (not to mention media-y) but what you gonna do.
it'll be worth it though, i'm sure
i'm making an effort to reply to everyone but i dunno what to suggest for this. do you have any time to spare for naps? i'm supposed to have naps but i don't feel like i'm active enough every day to warrant them.
Its given me a headache but its probably for the best
I'm really enjoying cooking at the moment.
Quiche is a good that's totally OK, like absolutely fine, then you have one fresh out of the over at home at it's like WHAAAAAAAAAT
it's gonna be my lunch for the next few days and I'm pretty geared up for it
just been catching up with peaky blinders and looking for work
After eighteen months of being engaged, wor lass has formulated the observation that, "getting married is going to be pretty expensive, isn't it?"
I didn't remind her of the numerous occasions I said to her and her mother that before the engagement. But I did say it. Fucking loads of times.
i'm staying at my dad's flat on my own (and cat-sitting <3) and thought i just had a power cut. tried to sit it out for a while, searched in vain for candles. then it occurred to me that none of the streetlights had gone out, and went outside: turns out plenty of other surrounding flats still had lights on. so, getting worried, i searched the flat for a fusebox just in case somehow, mysteriously, all the fuses had blown simultaneously.
found the problem in the fuse cupboard: turns out my dad has a prepay electricity meter that had run out of credit. cheers for mentioning that, dad.
thank fuck for emergency credit.
i would thank you individually but that would just feel like overdoing it :D
it charges you more sometimes
actually the worst thing in the world
it's his own fault for not telling me to top it up in advance
well chuffed, thought I was going to miss it. Feel like shite though, such stinker of a headache.
for what I'm sure will be a super fun time.
Hope the head mends itself :(
Wasn't really worthy of a thread. I'm such a preening narcissist.
Ran a really good 5k home, maybe my fastest. Them had a big omelette which I've been craving all day. Just finished reading One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. Love life is pretty good thanks!
the whole 'right honourable' thing is dead embarrassing, isn't it
was just doing the online psychometric tests for the civil service (which i can do and always pass) and my internet cut out and it's not letting me do it again.
sliced bread, caesar dressing and jalapenos. nothing else.
i dunno everyone makes me feel really guilty about things
I feel like nobody likes me even my friends and family
Tell yourself it's ok to feel guilty but that you're having a break now and will come back to it tomorrow...seems to help for me but then I am pretty nuts
Like "ok. These thoughts and all these worries are things which exist and I'm not gonna get rid of that easily. But for now that can be put in another compartment and will wait till tomorrow. Now is time to be not at all judgemental of myself and to view everything dispassionately..." It's so much easier to deal with negative thoughts when I'm not completely exhausted.
Don't try to beat it all at once just out it aside for a time; it can be scary and intimidating in an irrational way to think if abandoning your neuroses completely. They can be strangely comforting (or maybe addictive is a better word) when you feel they define part of you. I've found from meditation that the concept of 'taking a break' puts less pressure on yourself and doesn't feed the cycle of guilt and anxiety, feeling like you aren't worthy/don't deserve to feel better. Gosh I'm a little bit fucked up!
Anyway good luck with your mental health :)
I've been so crushed and upset and ashamed about something that I cried and vomited everyday for weeks and felt like my whole life had been a terrible unforgivable waste.
I'm working through it though by trying really hard to be forgiving with myself and also try to detach."Oh look, I'm feeling anxious" "seems I am crying" etc, just being the non-judgmental observer allowing emotions to pass through me the same way I would react to being hungry or needing to sneeze or something, of course this can be exhausting and I have failed many times too but it's helping me to cling on.
I realise I'm talking to myself here so in particular need for anyone to respond it's all good.
I don't know about other people but I find it helpful to hear from other people about their mental health. I'm not going through similar but it does help to understand what other people are going through and how they try to deal with it.
in the library at the moment doing some physics stuff. only people in the graduate room at this time of night seem to be sleazy turkish mature students talking about kobane and which teenage girls on their management degree they'd like to screw
need to get home soon to moisturise and sleep i feel
I can't focus on anything.
I can't read, I can't draw, can't even watch tv.
that sort of thing can be quite normal and affects a lot of people. hope you feel better about your mind (I can barely even string a sentence together right now).
Think it's depression related
After getting my eldest to school, making breakfast for the baby, walking the dog & feeding the dog I finally got to sit down to work at 10am this morning.
Didn't stop, not even for a minute's pause or to check my phone or anything, until 8pm.
Cycled home, had 'lunch' at 9pm.
Looked at twitter, felt restless, thought about going back to work around ten, watched Fresh Prince reruns on the Telly instead. Got a bit tired, brushed my teeth, took the dog out for his evening piss and now I'm WIDE A FUCKING WAKE again
All this after 5 hours sleep last night and 3 hours the night before
that's why i'm single! where can i meet slightly younger girls
used to be dis but that times passed
"I see you read I Am The Secret Footballer in three days - dinner?"
I'm in my new room in my new flat, got here like 8 or 9 this evening and have been sat around drinking wine and chatting and watching youtube clips with my new flatmates. So pretty good night! How are you georgiabeth (haven't read the thread yet)
she's just recently come back on Facebook, I had no contacts for her for years 'cause I lost my old phone.
she's been through a rough few years because of her BPD, trying to start again in life. I've been trying to make her realise that she needn't feel guilty for some stuff, that she's a great person, etc.
I really missed her. I always had a flame for her, too, but it never happened between us, though I know she was open to the idea.
want to make her happy again. she always made me happy. idk, we'll see how it goes. not gonna pester her or anything, but I hope she might be open to whatever, 'cause I was feeling lonely, spent and hopeless before I managed to get back in touch with her.
Also be careful and don't put all your eggs in this one basket.
Make your intentions clear from early on so you don't get hung up on her.
I know you didn't ask for any advice but it's really easy to get hurt when you're lonely and you see the opportunity for love.
you really are the nicest man in rock.
