Day 3 & Snow

Posted: November 30, 2010 in Opinion, Uncategorized

Ooh this bloomin’ weather, sooooo cold eh? Ok, so it’s -1 at the time of writing & I have admittedly experienced a lot worse (-7 last year, my poor mp3 player couldn’t cope & froze up completely!), but please can we just fast forward to spring? Pleeeaaassseee?

Ok, so the cold isn’t nice, but the snow is not that bad, but I can say that cos I can walk to everywhere I need to go. I don’t have to worry about de-icing the car or wondering if the bus will turn up. My good old Union Jack wellies are helping to keep my tootsies dry while I admire the effect this glorious white stuff has on the land.


Day 03, Something you have to forgive yourself for.

I guess I should forgive myself when I’m not feeling very smiley, it doesn’t happen that often, but when it does I really beat myself up over it. I know we can’t be happy all the time, it’s just that when I feel down, even if it’s just a little bit, it’s like I’m letting others down because they expect me to be happy, or maybe that’s me with high expectations again, I dunno.


Apologies & Day 1

Posted: November 28, 2010 in Opinion

Well, a few days ago i was all set to start blogging again & begin with the 30 q’s I’d decided to answer, then yesterday a strange thing happened:

In the morning my laptop flickered on & off,with just the plug in, with just the battery there was no response; in the afternoon there was no response whatsoever & i’d resigned myself to having to wait for it to be fixed.  About an hour & half an hour ago I thought I’d see what would happen if i turned it on …It came on!! I had to do a start-up thingy & wait for what seemed like ages for it to try to fix itself, then I got a message saying it was unable to do so, I checked the report it gave &  was given an option to restart it – so I did & hey presto!

I am left feeling somewhat confused but relieved that all appears to be well – we shall see if this continues! (I’m crossing my fingers & toes!)

Ok, enough of the babble – here we go with the first Q&A:

Day 01, Something you hate about yourself.

There’s nothing I hate about myself, there are things I dislike, for example, I’m very selfish & stuck in my ways, I need to put others first more. I’m afraid of hurting people, failing & letting others down. Maybe it’s me that has high expectations of myself & not others of me? – that’s what someone suggested anyway!  I guess that just about covers it…hopefully! tho ask me on a bad day & I’m sure my list will be ten times longer!

Wow, that was a cheery one! There are some pretty tough ones out there, but I decided to do this, & do this I shall!

30 Questions

Posted: November 26, 2010 in Opinion

There have been a few blogs going ’round with some very difficult questions asked and answered by the said blogger.

I decided to put my brave (Or maybe stupid) cap on and answer them myself; over the ne xt 30 days i will be answering a question from the list below (In numerical order, I’m pedantic like that!) these are the q’s:

Day 01, Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02, Something you love about yourself.
Day 03, Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04, Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05, Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06, Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07, Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08, Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09, Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10, Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11, Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12, Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13, A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14, A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15, Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16, Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17, A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18, Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19, What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20, Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21, (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22, Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23, Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24, Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25, The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26, Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27, What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28, What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29, Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30, A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself

Maybe you will want to give these a go yourself – maybe not; what i don’t intend to do with this is cause any upset by naming names, what i do in tend to do is admit a few things to myself, however hard they may be.

i’m not looking for enlightenment, just a few answers.
