Hey. How are you?
I need to take charge of my life again, try to do something positive, help somebody, make a change. I'm not sure why I got it into my head that I'm terrible at everything.
just got loads of stuff to do but i'm ill :(
Had a lovely morning at work but came home to a stack of arsey emails from other job.
Offered an interview in Stirling on Thursday; not even sure I want to drive there.
Our football captain is on holiday in Bratislava until January and I'm in charge of team admin until then. Had our GK drop out this morning and I've got four players confirmed for a game against a really good team. Nobody else is answering messages.
Quite enjoying Do or Dye Academy though.
good luck in your interview keith, I am definitely rooting for you.
Think I've done these carrots incorrectly, I'm gonna burn the ginger.
That aside I'm gonna watch polar express later! :)
started wrapping presents today cause my GF is back on thursday and I'm going to surprise her which will be fun. need to get up early tomorrow to get to boots before work though cause apparently they've got a massive soap&glory thing super cheap which i can buy ostensibly for her but then repeatedly steal. got her parents a bottle of Plymouth which i need to get out of my sight now because its screaming at me. then I'm going to watch boyhood
dullest post of 2014
don't beat yourself up
we're all doing them ;)
i haven't officially said congratulations except in the form of a facebook like so CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW JOB!!! when do you start?
last night i went to see trash kit (great) with my ex (who's also one of my bffs) and the guy i have been seeing (but really actually need to break things off with cause i'm not as into it as he is). there were meant to be others there but they flaked so it was just the three of us and then my ex came and stayed on the sofa which APPARENTLY is weird although i don't think it's weird at all. overall less awkward than expected, though.
in other news my flatmate is getting a cat in the new year :))))
probably my favourite moment of 2k14. You've literally never met a nicer animal in your life.
Dyou know what type it's gonna be?
i've drifted apart from all of mine (probably for the best for me though... also probably shouldnt talk about it cause they might see if they still lurk on here. wish them all the best though. hi guys if you're reading this).
you're so lucky bout the cat. me and whatshisface were hoping to get a pet this year but with me moving away its gonna have to be put on hold for a while.
going here for lunch tomorrow http://www.ubiquitouschip.co.uk/restaurant-festive-lunch.php
a) Beetroot/ Hake
b) Bream/ Turkey
the mushroom thing, the goats cheese thing and the dark chocolate crémeux (gonna get my bf to get the oatmeal ice cream so i can try some)
(also kinda in lieu of a graduation meal)
last week it's incredible
Got tomorrow off and was supposed to have a game of fantasy but the guy has dropped out *weep*. Just go and drink and read the paper like an old man I guess.
But then I bought my favourite loaf in a smaller size that I'd like, so, swings and roundabouts.
Gotta survive this winterr
Enjoying it and not even for comedy effect. Definitely getting old
That's like Tom Selleck impressive! :)
then someone put these in front of me
and now I've eaten half a box of them and I feel great
alright other than the persistent wisdom tooth pain. :(
Just listened to the Ella Fitzgerald LP i got my wife fo' xmas to make sure it plays alright. It did. and it's REEEALLLY good, espec the bit when she forgets the words to Mac the Knife. :DD
first line "Mary came riding..."
last line "Will you come riding..."
I'm going to laugh and all the parents are going to get me sacked. Can't even do the imagine everyone naked thing either. 😩🙊
pure life savers
do they just prevent anxiety?
propranolol is used for stage fright
just waiting for my boyfriend to ring me to say he's finished work and i'll heat his tea up.
tonight i just want to stay in and watch netflix and might even make myself a hot chocolate, been feeling a bad flare up brewing since yesterday morning - had three consecutive busy nights at work then went out last night for a bit with people from work, the music was so average someone should just give me a clubnight instead, honestly.
not really sleeping or eating and drinking loads of beers has just caught up with me, also got my period early which really freaked me out cause i thought i was just bleeding :\
just meant im getting ill too. hope you're ok xxx
i'm just gonna have to write off tomorrow. i've got green tea which i really shouldn't be drinking this late.
so happy for you but my room smells though :( x
haha sounds like i'm so happy for you that you're getting ill and got your period early 💁
yeah, always a plus.
i was feeling really bad today about being skint but then i remembered i'm surrounded by people who want the best for me and they're all poor too so i shouldn't dwell on it too much. i was contacted about an opportunity to get into teaching disabled children today (something i would like to do if my current plans don't work out - and they're kind of not working out) and both my mam and boyfriend are trying to convince me to do it and i think i might at least try and go for it.
and something you'd be fantastic at 🍎
i'm just about to start packing as i'm going home to norway tomorrow for christmas (staying for three weeks). Probably not gonna need much clothes to be honest as most of the time will just be spent at my mum's in my pyjamas.
have fun in norway in your pyjamas #slothlife
Have to write three essays over the holiday as well mind you, oh well
Drinking a few before going out to see my workmate play an acoustic gig. It's not going to be a patch on the utterly transcendental Krautrock gig I saw last night but I'll go anyway because he's a nice guy.
In other news my housemate is annoyed at the rest of us because she completely overspent on our Christmas party and none of us ate her fancy food. She bought six different types of terrine so I figure she could have seen this coming.
Hope everyone's keeping well on this Monday evening!
Still need to tidy and decorate the living room, and clear the kitchen up. Kill me pls.
Meaning I can't have a shower or do the washing up.
Or washing up bowl. what's wrong with my house.
my gf just came over and is making me a lemsip and we're gonna eat panettone and I love her
^don't post in these threads much but this combination just felt right
gonna be so poor for moving to bxl but it means i've got more time to spend with my family.
it's my birthday tomorrow. i'm working as i can't book holiday in december. :(
hope you have a nice day at work and something cool to look forward to in the evening
Got pleurisy :(
Just watched elf :)
Occasional impending doom feelings :(
I hope you're better soon Finton
made a nice dinner
drinking rooibos (sp?)
might get a nice early night in
was far more interested in the mum than the kid.
went out for tapas which was gr8 (Y)
just came into my room and felt a wave of cold come over me because of the cold urgghhh please come keep me warm please
now stuck in a binge of listening to old jens lekman from when he just put things on his blog
urghghhh my heart is so useless
no it's not
read something about how people are idiots and just be grateful you're not convinced you're in love with some idiot who isn't worthy of you (i know you've been there in the past) and that things are relative and subjective and temporary and you're a great person and you have to put yourself out there to experience the pain so don't bother just listen to jens instead xxxxx
p.s. sorry if you actually do think you're in love with someone who we've talked about at some point before just trying to make you feel good about things x
literally no good photos of me in the whole world even though i'm really pretty
where I actually describe my political views. eurgh.
that one when youre sitting outside at a cafe or something and you look ethereal and all glowing
dunno what to say beyond "socialist feminist". i feel that accurately sums up everything about me. worrying.
better than average monday night, went to 2 separate restaurants, first one for desert (banana fritters) then a greek mixed grill, then went back to a friends to watch an REM documentary. REM sure have worn some silly clothes in their time.
Think I might be comfort eating for the first time ever wahooo. Who cares let's rock
the dog was sick all over the kitchen floor before i left so i am worried about getting home to find him puked up his entire bed. idiot ate too much grass outside.
he did this thing when i thought he was gonna be sick but it was just one cough and then he was alright
hope yours is okay soon xxx
and as many blueberries as will fit pushed into the peanut butter. still got post drink guilt from work do on friday, not cut out for it.
of CBT for worry and anxiety. It's actually pretty helpful if you put situations in to context. They went through a worry tree diagram with us, sounds a bit wanky but it kind of works. Long way to go but it's so good that the NHS offers such a service.
look at the second comment on this video just made me smile loads hahaha "maybe better" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3nrnW2d03s
i'm pretty good. NEARLY not ill (thank god, never had a cold for this long before), had a lovely evening listening to Beyonce and chatting online to the guy i'm seeing (/playing Countdown with him because we are so cool like that) and chasing my tiny hyper gerbil around the lounge because he jumped off my shoulder :( poor baby is really over-keen to get out of the gerbil tank because one of his brothers is sexually obsessed with him and can't leave him alone.
seen lots of people saying you got the job you were going for DD, congrats!! hope it all goes well
really need a filter
and thanks, i've been job hunting for months so pretty chuffed.
Hope I don't get ill on my birthday because that would really suck. Hopefully just tired
