I HAVE to get my hair cut. My parents will comment otherwise, because its a big fucking mess at the moment :(

 

Didn't you cut your hair yourself last time? And IIRC you did a pretty good job of it too!

On another note, quiet exercise like running, walking, biking, whatever, can be very meditative.

 

This is so true! I love a quite walk to let my thoughts wander when I need that. Or to let my thoughts focus on a specific issue, if that's what I need

Thanks! I did! But I need a professional to do it really. I’ll promote my shop like mad and hope I get a sale or two over the weekend!!!!!

4.45pm. 

 

Football has ruined Christmas. hahaha i hate it SO much. I hate that it affects me so much too. Bastards. The lot of them. 

 

Anyway. Ive wrapped pressies, ive put the fire on, ive done a big clothes wash, and hung them up to dry, ive got a banging headache, probably too much sugar, not enough water. And stress, major stress. Ughhhhh. 

 

I looked for some hair styles and i think im going for a bit of a change on Monday. We shall see how stupid im feeling in the morning. 

 

im utterly exhausted today BUT im going to try and relax and just enjoy the festive period. Its hard though with my brain being a piece of shit lately.

Merry Christmas

 

hopefully today seems a little better!  I know you're up against tough challenges but we believe in you.  have you been able to feel a little better the last few days?

 

I saw the post about football. ha.  sorry I'm NOT sure I can understand it TOO well. I don't root for sports teams, but I guess them losing is a bit of the downside from the thrill of victory. is it a tiny bit of relief from life, though, that no matter how badly (or well) your sports team does- it doesn't really change your life very much?

 

:curious

 

on this side of the Pond, I've Heard NOTHING about (American) football; this then  Prolly means the local team (the Pittsburgh Stealers) isn't doing well and won't be going to the Superbowl. (which is the top game of American football).

 

when THAT happens I just don't end up hearing much.   

 

nobody wants to chat on and on (to a non-fan) about a favorite sports team , when they are losing.

 

ofc, If I am WRONG. it might mean Only that I'm too antisocial, don't talk to too many people, and I've missed the excitement.  that's possible.

Thanks for the well wishes :)

 

TGP - football hmmm I think it definitely does affect my life. If we win good then I’m happier and focused and if we lose badly I do tend to feel pretty awful for a couple of days !! It’s silly really and I shouldn’t let it affect me as much as it does.

 

but I’ve been going the game since I was young and it’s been drilled into me really from my family. It’s emotional yeah one way or the other!!

 

today we won 5-1 though yay. :D

 

 

Its been ok at my parents, I had a wobble yesterday and this morning though. Just feelings of being a failure and not normal. Im

very different from my mum dad and sister. My sister fits in much better than I do. 

 

Im weird, a feminist, bisexual, mental, artist, I care about refugees, I care about the homeless, I actively get involved in politics, I think women should have equal pay and don’t need a

fucking man to be happy... etc 

 

anyway i I shouldn’t moan or bitch because I’m lucky they love me...

 

still not sure what I’m doing for New Year’s Eve..... bit panicked as time runs out....?! 

 

Hooe everyone is great xx

I love how you share who you are and I love how much you give to other people here on the forums

 

certainly an inspiration! 

 

myself. 

I think I'm just a wannabe hermit.  Too  antisocial for my own good!

 

NOW, re-reading that a little....  don't get too all upset at my gender!  we're not all THAT bad.  some of are half polite and pleasant.

Here in Pennsylvania (for example), I think we guys are about half toilet trained, and we've almost mastered the art of not belching/farting in polite company.   Ha!

 

and anyways more seriously. happiness always comes (when it comes) from within.

Im home, got back around 2.30pm, fell asleep eeek. Laid in my bed with Jackson, next minute, its 4pm haha. Had some pizza for dinner just now, full UP. 

 

Oh and im meant to be going to Liverpool tomorrow but i have barely any money and to be honest, im not that excited about going. Im meant to be meeting my friend from Italy, ive not seen her since my birthday (remember she called me fat) we speak all the time over messenger but not been face to face since. 

 

I have to travel and the trains arent reliable. And reallly, i want a day on my own doing nothing. Ughhhhhh dont know what to do. 

 

Anyway, i hope the new boards go up soon :) not long to wait though!

After her behavior, I’d make her come to you.  If you truely want to see her, that is.  There was no excuse for her behavior.

Dont think im going to see her, just cos its later now and i have another headache and feel sick. You are both right too. But hey ho.....

 

Thanks guys x

 

 

Ugh well i dropped my FUCKING PHONE IN THE SINK :( kill me now. I cant afford a new one at ALL. Its in a bag of rice right now, ill leave it there till tonight and hope so much it helps. For fuck sake, i was trying to get Jackson off the side and i dropped it in the dish water. Ugh. woe is me. 

 

i feel so sorry for myself!! My head is banging. Im tired and weepy, i feel sick, i dont know if i am hungry or not, i have no money, i want to get drunk, im bored. 

 

I did finish a proposal and send it off though (for a show next year)

 

Maybe ill get some water and have some paracetomol. The buses are shite or non existent at the moment so i feel i cant even get anywhere like town to walk around or see a friend. Im meant to be meeting a different friend tomorrow, but in Manchester. She says she will buy me lunch. Which is nice of her. Im so isolating myself though, i feel ive had so much human contact i need to stew in my own sorrow for a bit. Like an idiot. Getting out will probably do me good. 

 

But i dont have a phone now :( aaaaghhhhhhhhhh. I could cry so much i feel lost and hopeless. 

 

Maybe ill sleep a bit? x

If a friend doesn't treat you the way a friend should be treating you, the relationship should be reexamined, especially if the treatment is "be nice".

Lunch is good. Bright and easy.

 

I'm sorry life is beating you over the head this year. :( I can only give you a virtual hug.

It is a bit complicated relationship. we have major ups and downs. Both kind of mental, which can be hard on both of us.

Hey all, really fucking bored and anxious and sad and annoyed. Football making me want to jump off bridges again. I have a banging headache, im so bored. No one is able to work with me, no emails etc till Wednesday probably. Cant wait to get back to work. I feel very much in limbo at the moment. Which is annoying as hell. 

 

Like i say, my head hurts, i feel quite sick as well. 

 

I did have a nice lunch with my friend, was great to see her. Its 6pm now, i could go to bed already hahahaha x
