A Week Of Amusement And Disappointment

Hey,

If we were having a coffee this week it would probably need to be a strong one.

I played football this morning and it was very windy.  As you can see, I was really impressed!

Plus we lost 4-0 and were completely outplayed.  It just felt a stupidly hard game to play in, not necessarily physically (thankfully) but nothing was working and when you have to think about what you’re trying to do and not finding many answers it’s difficult.

The defeat was really disappointing even if I enjoyed playing which is probably quite a good metaphor for the last week.

I’m not sleeping particularly well at the moment.  I don’t know whether it’s the moon phase but I’m having all sorts of dreams at the moment.  They’re not necessarily nightmares in that I’m not scared of them.  It’s just that they’re vivid and don’t make any sense and the subject matter is stuff that I’d not rather not be thinking about with that degree of vividness.  In fact, can we call it vividity just because I think it’s a fun word?!

Nothing sucks more than having a great dream and then waking up.

I’m still wondering if there’s a bit of work stress in it.  I’ve realised that I only have two Mondays left (and two of every other day of the week, come to think of it) before I leave.  In fact, I only have one more weekend before I’m unemployed.  I hadn’t thought of it that way.

There are still people at work actively trying to pull something together for me to stay.  I’m resolute in not wanting to just stay for the sake of it and I’m quite excited about new opportunities.  I also really need a rest! The last few years haven’t been fun but, in the back of my head, I’ve got this piece of advice that I was given years ago that it’s better to have a job than not have one.  It’s that conflict and the fact I still don’t know for certain what’s happening that I’m having difficulty with.

Other things seem to have been creeping back recently too but hopefully they’ll go in the same manner as they arrived.

So yeah, I haven’t been feeling on top of the world this week, but a few things did amuse me.

First up, the car hit 11111 miles.  Yeah, that shouldn’t amuse me, should it?

I caught three new Pokémon!

And to tie my week together, I was both amused and disappointed by this sign:

I was amused because I pictured bags of peanuts and steak pies dancing on the bar.  I was disappointed because there was no dancing bar food.

Never mind.  Next week will be better. Until then…

I wish that I had all the answers
And I could walk you down your road
For all the times those times you feel like you don’t matter
There’s just one thing you gotta know
You better believe, you better believe
Like my father said to me
“Just give it some time, look for a sign
And you’ll be just fine”
They say that nothing lasts forever
They say that good times fade away
And I know, I know that sometimes it ain’t easy
But I know you’ll be okay
One day I’ll see you in the future
You’ll have a family of your own
I will be there, I will be there to be your teacher
You better believe, you better believe you’re not alone
You better believe, you better believe
Like my father said to me
“Just give it some time, look for a sign
And you’ll be just fine”
They say that nothing lasts forever
They say that good times fade away
And I know, I know that sometimes it ain’t easy
But I know you’ll be okay
You better believe (believe)
You better believe (believe)
You better believe no matter where you are
You better believe (believe)
You better believe (believe)
Even when you don’t believe I won’t be far
It’s true that nothing lasts forever
We all become a memory
But I know, I know one day we’ll be together
Together again, you better believe, you better believe
You better believe (believe)
You better believe (believe)
You better believe no matter where you are
You better believe (believe)
You better believe (believe)
Even when you don’t believe I won’t be far
You Better Believe by Train

    So did you make any chocolate biscuit cake? I wish you well with your future job propects.

    • Hey! No, I didn’t! My weekend seemed to somewhat disappear for one reason or another. I’m expecting (due to sporting events being televised from Australia this weekend) that I may have some more time to get the chef’s hat on, so we’ll see!
