While I write this, I must admit that I am currently quite intoxicated; I had attended a work friends wedding where I some how managed a jagerbomb, two pints of bitter and 9 Jack Daniels and cokes on an empty stomach. I know; you must think me a legend, you wouldn’t be mistaken.
However as a result of that I find the room spinning and writing this is all I can do to stop me from wasting £40 worth of drinks. It’s also at this stage where I feel quite sentimental, Pete Howorth, the ‘Ardest man that ever lived, feeling sentimental; shocking right?
I don’t know if anyone reads this anymore but it helps me get things off of my mind and it’ll probably help me sleep better, anyway you never know what a drunk Pete will say. (Only to more than likely regret it in the morning)
But it’s these sort of times where I realise that I am lucky to be the person who I am. I live a life where my brains constantly switched on, so much so that I probably only average three to four hours of sleep a night just because for one reason or another I lay awake at night constantly second guessing every single thing I did that day. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because I’ve made so many mistakes over the years; I try and make sure I don’t repeat history. Continue reading “Luckiest Man In The World”
Been slacking on the blog front, it’s not as if I’ve even been busy. Just needed time to rest my brain I guess. This weekend I did absolutely fuck all and I mean proper fuck all. I didn’t even get dressed, barely even got out of bed. Just laid there watching Star Trek: Enterprise on my laptop until the early hours.
I think the depression that comes with being unemployed is starting to kick in. I hate job searching, absolutely hate it. I thought to myself I’d hold off until I found something that I wanted to do, but, it seems I can’t afford to wait any longer.
Checking my bank account it was at over £860 in debt, then I realised my car insurance is due next week so I had to pay for that. £650 for the year, the three points I have on my license continues to rape me. My own fault I suppose. Continue reading “Old Ways”
Came in to work I was presented with the team advent calender and I was the first pick to have the chocolates out of the little pocket, a Terrys Chocolate Orange segment and a mini Toblerone. That’s when I realised it was now December, just 24 short days away from Christmas.
If anything that made me depressed, it was like I have lost an entire year, it’s gone by so fast, this time last year, exactly one year ago I was on my way to France via a coach, after leaving Ibis Hotel last year due to not getting enough money or hours I decided to look elsewhere for a job, I ended up a Voice Marketing doing outbound sales.
At the time I pretty much enjoyed it, sure it was depressing not getting any sales and continuously trying to con people into joining but after awhile I got quite good at it and I enjoyed working with the people that I did, a far cry from my 2011 experience with the company. I was happy there because they helped me get out of my overdraft, it was a well paid job, it’d have to be though considering how shit it was… Continue reading “Where Did This Year Go?”
