I got nothing to say. What's going on with you?
Other than that I've nothing of interest to report.
did super good. Has pizza after. Didn't sleep well. The end.
worked late yesterday then curry then haiku salut and then I came home and did Spanish work and it took a while to get to sleep.
Still in bed. Only got a couple of things booked today.
My line manager was sat waiting for me. Had a lovely chat about my new flat and went on her way.
Football tonight. My body aches.
My wife picked her fantasy team by finding players with curious hairlines. She's leading my league by 5 points after Vincent Kompany was her captain.
and getting up at 3am tomorrow morning for a flight to Gothenburg is going to be hard.
but Berlin for me
Haven't played on a Monday for ages. Still feeling the tightness in my groin, but other than that was ok.
Didn't sleep amazingly but that's what coffee is for. Got to prepare for some interviews tomorrow. God I hope there are some good candidates.
It was loud and went on forever, it was also too hot to sleep. I've woken up irked and I'll be damned if I don't stay that way.
Which has "no room for the costs to slip in the slightest"
I've not got the majority of the client specifications and won't be getting them until early September.
Going to write "THE FOLLOWING IS BASED ON GUESSWORK" in 28pt red as the first line of my correspondence.
Maybe go for a walk later. Stayed up late last night listening to all the 'oh no oh my' albums. I had forgotten what a lovely band they are.
got to meet my cousin for a quick drink after work but apart from that got NO PLANS. Might catch up on True Detective or read PKD.
Work-wise, it doesn't seem like I have much on today either, so I guess I'll listen to Joanna Newsom and think about lunch.
Is it muggy as shit where you all are? It's muggy as shit over here.
i slept better last night than i have for the past few nights though
got a big job on later that i am quite nervous about.
although finally got a chance to wear my new suit, when i say new i got it about 3 months ago.
thought i'd dress to hopefully impress the client of said job as she can be quite a handful.
Made a load of tickets for some training with lecturers and made them all warhammer themed. A few of the cooler ones burst out laughing at the names and addresses. I AM AN OFFICE WORKER. Apart from that walked in with the resident emo girl and shes so lovely and friendly I felt like crying.
+1 to the bad sleep crew, although i also ate a shed load of fried halloumi shortly before bed, which might have helped produce the creepy dreams i think i had.
Also not sure if when the time comes I will wear nappies or just free-poo, might be the worlds first carbon neutral baby
Nice to see its going well for you :)
My teeth were even pretty sore yesterday, got to take the rough with the smooth though and was warned about these growing-down pains.
Can't be arsed to clean it out, it can't be bad for you, right?
Finished painting our banister bookcase last night. That's hopefully the last time I have to use gloss for along time, I fucking hate the stuff. After that we had chipotle steak salad w/ salsa and lime corn. Sensational, thanks James Martin. Gonna be a staple I think.
Probably gonna be a chill one at work, loads of people off. Busy enough though. In laws over tonight. Fajitas and that. Hope it's nice so we can sit in the garden.
that had me laying awake at 6am in a tizzy :(
it must be good for the inside of bowels
In fact I think it might have counteracted potential chipotle woe.
Haven't got pics on my phone but basically this:
Our house isn't huge so we have to be a nifty with space.
I hate it when bad dreams cloud your morning.
acceptable to email landlords, who buy up property close to universities and then implement a 'no student' policy, with abusive messages?
having a bit of a shiter to be honest. Got a Boris bike this morning which kinda just depressed me not having a bike of my own and not being able to afford it.
Flying to Berlin tomorrow morning, spending a few days there and then onto Leipzig before coming home, looking forward to it but a bit bittersweet because I've got pretty much no money (sexy but poor eh)
Genuinely considering leaving London for a while and moving back to my parents in Norwich for a couple months. I'm sick of never having any money and being stressed out in a massive city I don't even like very much. Having my bike stolen was kinda the final straw.
My really irresponsible advice would be make the Germany trip happen the way you want it to (borrow a bit if you need to as long as you're coming back to a job), then like you say, maybe take some time out from the city. I find it exhausting for just a couple of days so I don't blame you for feeling like that. Bit of time in a totally different environment going to give you a much more objective viewpoint on whether the good outweighs the bad.
Good luck and have a great time! Very jealous!
yeah my flatmate who I'm travelling with is helping me with a bit of spending money while I'm there so I'll be OK, I go to Berlin pretty much every year (and am planning on moving next year) so I know how to live cheaply while I'm there, mostly going to be showing her the main spots.
Yeah it's just like I had such a nice weekend at the parents and then the first thing that happens when I get back to London is finding my very important means of transport had been stolen and I'm just like "seriously fuck this". I think I need a proper change of scenery for a couple months, but am still close enough to come down to London for band practices every other weekend or whatever, but still have friends in Norwich and I reckon I could find work pretty easily, all the while saving money and piece of mind.
Obviously I'll think about this more seriously when I get back next week but it's certainly appealing to me at the moment
My recent breaks off work have been really active and I've been away or going to festivals so this one I am very much having it chilled. Read a lot, cook some nice food, drink wine and smoke a bit of Lou Reed. Lahhhhvly.
I'm just leafing through a book "The Illustrated History of Southwark" that my Mum gave me. It's amazing to see how the neighbourhoods you live in and spend time in have changed over hundreds of years and how long it took different districts to urbanise.
