Back home

But I’m letting go of her

16/01/2006

Warning: For some reason, writing of any form seems to be harder and harder for me to manage lately, so I apologise in advance for how boring this entry just may be.

It’s been 12 days since I last pretended to post here, but a lot has happened so I think I can be forgiven. I’ve moved out with two of my best friends, Mark and Daly, and it feels really good to be getting out on my own. I spent a hot summers day procrastinating until the last minute and then moving my important belongings within the last 2 hours of the day. It was a fun day and it felt so good to be on my own, but I just ended up passing out while my friends all went out and had a great time.

Since then it has been much more work than play I am afraid, working all day and usually finding myself with so many things to do every afternoon when all I want to do is lay down and watch a movie or catch up on some reading or writing. Right now is the first time I’ve actually had to sit down since last year and suddenly I realise that I have posted only 10 times in over a month and a half and that is really bad considering just how much I enjoy writing here.

So now that my friends are out at a poker game and I am sitting her by myself listening to The Get Up Kids, I am taking the time to recount the events of recent and all I can think about is sleep. I’m going to drag my lazy butt to bed on the promise to try and write tomorrow. If I don’t start writing soon, I almost have no reason to keep this. Night kids, stay cool!

Two Thousand and Six

2/01/2006

I’m tired, let’s see just how short and boring I can make this. Christmas sucked, because well, Christmas just really sucks. New Years rocked, because I was off my rocker and had a freakin’ blast. New years resolutions are as follows:

1. Drink more (yes, it’s possible)
2. Party more with the people who really matter (definitely possible)
3. Be happier, installment number 1 of this is coming very soon, it’s a surprise!
4. Take more photos. One every day to be exact, I’ve already started, but haven’t had time to load them onto flickr yet.

Alright, I’m dead to the world as of 20 minutes ago and I am writing this in my sleep. Goodnight.
