How are you?
need a mind and body transplant
Realistically, how long have we got to turn our lives around?
think that needed to happen in late teens or something, it's too deep-rooted now
you just can't be arsed
just a weak person
that kind of accidentally changes you while you're distracted. Like falling in love, that changes people without them even trying!
It's not a helpful way to describe someone's lack of motivation
but I do suspect there's a small part of you that finds solace in the ongoing emotional patterns you're experiencing.
"People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar." - http://goo.gl/meZ4ox
Obviously I don't know you IRL so may be way off the mark, but that quote certainly resonated with me when I first read it.
Man is the same today that he has always been. He is a rebel against God. He may, in some generations, hide his rebellion a little more carefully than at other times, but there is no change in his heart. The men who builded the city against God back in the days of Babylon had the same hatred as that which possessed the men who nailed the Lord Jesus Christ to the cross.
Not being arsed can be part of the unchangable character though
working from home at the moment. Pretty nice. Making rice pudding. Hope everything's well in your world atm Bamnan (and everyone else).
but it was part of a drive to use up the stuff I have lying around before I leave. I need support here, not judgement.
its just called rice, but its a misnomer, like people sometimes calling things geraniums when they should be saying peligoniums
Wild rice is also grown as an ornamental plant in garden ponds.
it's perfectly plausible that they just lied on the label - that seems to be pretty common practice in Mexico
how you doing, bam? it's nice seeing you seeming chirpier lately.
I don't know if I am happier, just trying to keep calm and take things one at a time
not bad, cheers
that I burned my rice pudding beyond salvage. Reheated tofu and sweet potato from yesterday and had it with stir-fried beetroot, celery and tomato though so who's laughing really?
literally, Ive been showered with drain water from the shower/sink drain pipes (I had to cut hole in ceiling below and then disconnected pipes.....standing water comes out horrible, plus its mixed with drain cleaner fluid....ouch! am just taking a break and steeling myself to give the drain another good rodding.
Call Dynorod. I know you're a great man of nature but standing water is potentially bio hazardous.
All that's left is to try really hard to be nice to other people and contribute to their happiness.
sounds like a decent kind of life to me, not a life that's over
But one without joy
I tend to find compassion leads to joy (or maybe peace?), whether directly or indirectly.
Slightly below average (and average is pretty bad), today was appraisal day and it seemed to go worse than I was expecting, then I got a chicken and chorizo pastie on the way home and they seemed to have changed the recipe from a mild curry to a boring tomato, then my trains were all messed up
Also seemed does not mean did :)
I'm feeling pretty good. I hope you're ok.
I've been to yoga this evening and now I'm summoning up the energy to go and pack for Hamburg tomorrow. Winter holidays are the best.
I'd like to try it but I don't want to go to a class or anything embarrassing or creepy.
This is a good source: http://www.doyogawithme.com/
Classes are great though. The class I attend is by far the most laid back and welcoming atmosphere I experience all week.
Starting new jobs is stressful. Can't physically get up. Might just sleep in my chair tonight.
Wish I had some valiums.
I said something which in retrospect was pretty cringey, and it's kinda ruined my day. I'm just being silly though
