Anyone want to exchange a few pleasantries here?
how's your day been?
My mum is still in hospital and I'm worried about her, I've got a headache and feel a cold coming on but I did have a chippy dinner so I guess that's cool.
How about you?
best wishes an' that. always a worry when a family member is in hospital regardless of what they're in for.
i had a weirdly empty day but not too tarnished by excessive irrational worry which makes a nice change.
Empty days can be good for you anyway as long as they aren't too frequent
I'm quietly trying to stave off an anxiety attack whilst making final preparations for a best man's speech I have to give on Saturday.
Fresh air is the only thing that really helps me with my anxiety attacks but I guess it's pretty cold out right now
Is it important to define it?
it can be quite important, yeah
panicking because i've left my USB stick at school and it's got all my lesson plans and stuff on there and all my essays/assignments and i stupidly haven't got them on my laptop Fuckfuckfuckshitfuckoffshitfuck
Is what I thought when I first read this. Can you wing it?
or i'll just have to lots of work again lol
the school got broken into and her drive was stolen. it had everything on it. she lost it all.
don't have much to say but I hope your mum is ok and you too x
Appreciate the support :) I don't know if she's ok yet but I guess she's in the best place for her atm.
How's your anxiety? Feeling a bit better about your future prospects I hope?
absolutely dreading work this weekend/next week but really looking forward to going to manchester too so that's good.
Think my days of visiting a city are behind me now.
Sorry for the mostly self-centred response to your post...working on that
would be really cool actually
Well it's a lovely thought! Hopefully some day
Do you reckon you are gonna be able to come along to the DiS Glasgow Xmas MEAT next Friday (12th). I think you said you might be working.
I'd love to meet you!
it's when the manchester one is (calling in sick for work)
can i crash it for one drink? I've got that day off work cos of run the jewels the night before.
i'm gonna try and get to the castle quite early to get everyone seats. might set off a stink bomb in one of the wee rooms to keep it clear for us all.
love the castle, what time is ideal to toddle over?
I went to see the lighting of the Christmas tree at Trafalgar Square earlier. Because the tree is from Oslo it felt like basically the entire Norwegian population of London was present, a bit weird. It was really nice, though.
Tomorrow I'm going to the Tate Modern with uni, to look at the cinema they've got set up there. Should be interesting.
That's a nice thought isn't it? Why do people hate foreigners? I'm a poor idiot but I find it really heartwarming to hear people speaking in a different language...fuck knows what I'm going on about here.
Haven't really put much thought into Christmas yet, I did see you made a thread right? Didn't want to read it because it would probably make me feel like a miserly cheapskate.
I love Christmas so I go on about it a lot. Put up a lot of (cheap and tacky) decorations in the flat a couple of days ago, so many different Christmas lights all over the place now. I'm also posting one of my favourite Christmas songs (ooh, I made a thread about those as well actually) on FB every day. Not many people are "liking" them so far but I don't care, it's a nice way to keep a countdown.
Might be enough to sway me into caring about it this year! Is Christmas on the same day in Norway or do you have to have like two Christmas days now?
But I'm going home on the 16th so will be having a good old Norwegian Christmas with the family
Also I have no idea who/what kozelek is
Kinda would like to read a wiki-like article about the reasons for Christmas being celebrated on different days but not enough to actually do it.
hope you're doing ok fella
I'm alright. My body and mind feels pretty fucked at the moment. In between states of drunkenness, highness, extreme stress, hangover, withdrawal, sobriety there are rare moments of lucidity where I feel somewhere near my best and am able to communicate with other people in a manner that is closest to my actual personality.
I also have some sort of lung infection at the moment. And I've been for approx 10 emergency toilet trips today, which may be more to do with the spicy chicken wings and past sell by date chocolate milk I had for lunch.
Might go for a beer
I find it hard enough just flitting between drunk and melancholy and sober and sexually frustrated!
Also hello there!
I am also pretty exhausted most of the time. Thank god for caffeine
Trying to get back into meditation at the moment- I think it really helps keep things on an even keel. Feel like a wanker while I'm doing it though which is the hardest thing to get past at the moment.
how are YOU, everyone?!
Sorry to hear about your mum too, Bamnan- I'm sending good meditational vibes your way (or would be if that was a thing).
When I realised that I have stopped worrying about doing dumb stuff and being embarassed...I guess it must have eroded over time but I didn't notice until recently that I don't care that I'm a dumb asshole who just buys beer and frozen pizza from the supermarket and still plays mario.
Meditation is fun and rewarding but it's hard to keep at it I guess when the novelty wears off. Good luck on your journey to a nicer place
best wishes to yr mum.
tonights my last night in a shit hotel in a shit hole town, back to my reasonable home in a shit hole, wheyyy. gonna drink alone to celebrate.

One essay left of term for me, cannot find the willpower to do it. Just wanna crawl into bed and sleep through the winter like a bear or something.
