Today was full of messy rugby watching, veggie wraps, and Irish pub quizzing. It’s been a busy week really, purposefully though. I now feel as if I’m busy because I want to be, rather than being busy so that I don’t have to acknowledge things, which is most definitely progress.
On Monday I had a friend from boarding school stay over, and quite honestly it was maybe the happiest 24hrs I’ve had in a long time. Before he arrived I got worried that after a three year friendship break we wouldn’t be able to relax around each other, or even worse, that there just wouldn’t be any friendship left. I was very wrong, it felt like nothing had changed between us, after hours of catching up and gossiping I felt reassured that I have made the right decisions in regards to the path I want to take in life. He even said the biggest change in me is that I’m happier now, and I’m so relieved. Taking him home on Tuesday meant that I had to get out of the house and go to training so whilst I was a physical mess, it definitely helped my brain. We also found out that weatherspoons gravy costs 30p, which is vital information for any real student.
I had work on Wednesday and thankfully I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my new job. It’s hard starting a job when you know how to do it but your brain is making you to nervous to be good. I hope they don’t think I’m useless, and I’m quite confident that they don’t. In the evening I made dinner for my Feegan (fake vegan) friend, and even he admitted that the tofu stir fry tasted good. I think I’m starting to understand the key components to a marinade
I didn’t make training on Thursday, I was just far too tired really. I can’t even really remember the day. I went to Chimp’s for chickpea curry in the evening and that was nice, but I definitely didn’t feel like I was *there*.
Friday Rachael and I took canal street. I don’t remember most of it. I think I was happy for most of it though.
Saturday was work/illness based. In the evening I saw Beauty and the Beast, good re-make, I think Disney are starting to be less ashamed of what their re-makes need to be. Might do a post on that for Wednesday.
5 things that have made me happy this week:
- Rachael’s unconditional friendship
- My mother’s impeccable timing with messages of love
- I cleaned the bathroom
- Better sleeping
- 9 year friendships that just don’t die
Made it, just in time.
