hiya it's so light out isn't it?
how is everyone?
my eyes really sting
I'm good. Just met a good friend for a drink. I've been playing a lot of Monkey Island. I'm watching Goodfellas now. Its raining outside so it feels cosy in my room.
I'm pretty busy at the moment, but life is good.
i went to the pub last night and had like four pints of soda (with blackcurrant, obvs) and i've never burped so much
just working on some stuff
having a refreshing beer
might even walk the hour home if it's nice out
how are YOU?
just washed my hair
i genuinely feel a million times better today than i have done for ages, though
just not physically
im listeing to Pity Sex to know the songs for tomorrow.
Really struggling today. Clearing out my house after a break-up, depression that has been lurking forever not dealt with getting a bit too much to ignore (said depression one of many contributing factors to the break-up, rather than a result of it; the split is definitely for the best for both of us). Kinda feels like being in a steady relationship that looked alright from the outside has provided a sort of veil of normality that has allowed me to bury my head in the sand about stuff, and now that's gone. No desire to speak to friends about things or sense of 'freedom' at being single, I just want to go to bed and stare into space, really. Oh, and apparently post self-indulgent stuff about my personal life on forums, which I've never done before.
I don't think there's anything wrong with being self indulgent or wallowing for a bit, even for a long time, but I hope things look up for ya. You never know what's around the corner.
Don't worry about posting about it here, I posted quite a bit when I was feeling down as fuck with similar issues and lots of folk had some really good advice and helped me quite a bit.
Oddly enough at times I felt more comfortable talking to folk here than to close friends and family.
I hope things get better for you as soon as possible
I've been around these forums for ages (about ten years or something) without ever posting about anything beyond football, music and crisps but as you say can be strangely reassuring to just get some stuff out, particularly when you're in no mood for a sitdown heart-to-heart with your nearest and dearest. Actually searched out and read some of the old depression threads on here today, some really interesting stuff from some very nice people. Trying to see it all as an opportunity to work through some of this latent shit that's been weighing me down for too long, but all just a bit grim at the minute. I'm sure a couple of months down the line when all the horrible practicalities are dealt with I'll be able to look forward with more optimism.
in my neck or something as my whole left side (chest, upper back, under arm) have been twinging and like dull muscular pain since last night. Like, I'm not dead so it's okay but i went to register at the gp and they said i cant attempt to MAKE an appointment until friday afternoon and so then i went to the nhs walk in but it packed so i walked back home.
in other news i just washed my hair with henna and walnut conditioner which smells absolutely divine and did myself a zig zag parting for tomorrow
hope you're well, eye stinging aside
had such a good birthday weekend!! picnic, drinks, football and great weather. bf is so great, why is Leeds so far away?! :( now watching Chelsea match and trying to write an entry for an amazing travel writing competition. neither is going well.
earlier on, when looking towards the top of the slanted hill of the street, it was that sorta twilight-pale-blue, and as your eye went down it'd gradually go to this weird dark, dark grey cloud. Looking out the window, the front of a car looked weirdly like there were headlights shining on it for a while.
Also, I'm really liking this track I've been tinkering with and listening to recently -- to my ears, it kind of has a slightly similar mood / tone to something from the first Broken Social Scene album, which I'm really pleased with.
Seeing Thurston Moore at the Hare and Hounds tomorrow, which I'm both (a) looking forward, (b) wondering how I'll get there, and (c) grateful / slightly guilty for the fact I've got a lift back at whatever time the gig'll finish at
really wanna bite my housemate's forehead :/
seems like it would be nice
In an act of aggression
because I get the feeling that - with your general, run of the mill forehead - the desire to bite wouldn't really register, just cause I can't envisage getting purchase on a forehead
never thought I'd type that
