A Little Something About My Absence

On Friday night, I decided to take a break.  I’m not sure why, or how, or even what I was hoping to achieve.  But I just did it.  After my fanny-wobble, I just needed to put everything away, and so, when I woke up on Saturday, I didn’t tweet.  Instead, I slept the morning away, and some of the afternoon.   But in my absence, in just five days, so much has happened. Saturday I woke up somewhere after lunch to the voices of my male housemate, A, and our very good friend and neighbour, L.  I heard talk of ICU and hospital.  I was very confused.  I stumbled out of bed once L had left.  Apparently, my other housemate, J, was in ICU.  She had had trouble over the past week or so with speaking.  She just couldn’t get the words out.  She had an appointment with the neurologist on Friday, and that was the last time we had seen her.  During her MRI, she had her first seizure.  This was all a little mind blowing. There was a sms from a friend I had promised to do brunch with.  She wanted to know if I was still alive.  In her awesomeness, she excused my tardiness, and we met for  brunch – At 3pm.  She let me bitch about my previous evening, and she bitched too.  I value...

A Little Bit About My Anger

I generally don’t get angry very easily. I tolerate most things, even when I shouldn’t. So, when I am angry, you should know that it’s something that I really care about. But right now, my fuse is so short, it’s growing out the other end. As my friends, you should know I’m going through one or two things. You should know my gran is very ill – Someone who I am very close to. You should know this is bad enough. Then, of course, I’m dealing with getting through each month, money-wise. And then, like most people, I have work going on. Something that is taking most of my energy.  There is a lot happening. Every little thing is effecting me.  I am not where I want to be.  My mind is sad. I say these things because apparently I need to. I’m over being taken for granted. I’ve had enough of it. Sometimes it’s not about you. I’m not asking for it to be about me, I’d just like some consideration before things are done. I don’t need to explain it more. If I need to, then it’s really not worth it. I feel I’m heading backwards, somewhere I really don’t want to be. So, if I snap at you now, I’m probably sorry, but it’s likely that you deserved it. I’d just appreciate a little leeway and...

A Little Something About The World Cup

There are, as I see it, about 3 days to go. Three days until the first ball is kicked in the tournament proper. There have been a large amount of friendlies at the moment, and I’ve already heard people say they’re sick of football. But, to those people, i have bad news for you – This is only the start. People are only going to get more crazy, and more involved. And if I were any more excited, I might explode. I am a big footie fan. I am a proudly Man United supporter and support England football. It...
