Not your usual week

This week has been bumpy, to say the least. It feels like the longest week ever! My friend left the company we work(ed) for. I think it was on Wednesday, when he gave me a call to let me know he was at home and not an employee anymore. I don’t want to go into much detail about it, because it’s not my story to tell, but believe it or not, it had a massive impact in my overall mood for the rest of the week. We used to have lunch together pretty much everyday, and pretty much for the past… three years, maybe? That’s a hell of a habit there… And suddenly, it was gone. Wednesday was weird. Funnily enough, many people were coming up to me asking me if I was OK, which I found both funny and sad. On Thursday, I was meant to attend my Pilates session, but I decided to go drinking with my friend instead, see how he was doing and have some fun. We went to our signature …

Weekend out!

This past weekend was interesting. At first, I sort of had forgotten a friend was coming over (sorry Ouiza!), so when someone else reminded me (thanks Brian!), it sort of made my day. On Friday, I wanted to go to a gig of a friend of a friend, and a few people said they would join, but finally, nobody wanted to come or had made other plans, so I found myself alone. I decided not to go, because I didn’t want to be on my own, and I went “home” (Su’s place). Now I think I should have gone on my own anyway, because I’m pretty sure it would have been interesting and fun. Ah well, my loss. Hopefully next time I won’t care about others and just do my thing. Saturday was a bit busy. My visiting friend invited me to a birthday party, and I wasn’t sure whether to attend or not, but since it was in Shoreditch, and I never get to go out there, I decided to go. It’s not that …

Work in progress – a deadline

Hello everyone! First of all, I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit the blog, ever and this week. In just a few days, we’ve had over 150 visits! While I’ve had similar traffic even in one single day (very rare), the truth is my blog isn’t that widespread, and visits in such high numbers are not that common! So, thank you, I hope you keep coming back! Thanks! This week I also did something I’m quite proud of. I’m usually shy, but I somehow mustered all the courage I could find, and I asked a guy out for a drink. Out of the blue. Well, not really. I met him and I found him attractive and friendly. He seemed like a cool guy, so after a bit of convincing from one of my best friends, I emailed him (only means of contact available). Go me! Of course, he said no (had a girlfriend, it seems), but that’s a different story. The key message here is: I did something I’m not …

And so it begins…

So it seems that all I read about these days is lists on New Year’s resolutions. People are listing all their objectives and goals for 2014. I’ve also read somewhere that only 8% of us actually complete their resolutions, but can’t remember if it’s all of them… I think it’s just one. This got me thinking… Most of our resolutions are the same year after year: stop smoking, lose weight, save money; yet we keep on missing them. In the days previous to the change of year, we stuff our faces in with food, we binge drink at parties and make trip after trip to the shops. I stopped smoking years ago, so that one is a mission accomplished for me, even though it probably wasn’t part of my resolution set that year. Yesterday, I did a lot of thinking. Maybe it wasn’t a lot but since my brain was feeling all sludgy from drinking strawberry tequila shots, it seemed like a lot of work anyway. My entrĂ©e to the New Year was spent like …
