Despite my best efforts not to, I have fallen in love with this dumb man. You can take the girl out of 2005…
I have not hidden the fact that I am going through a rough time. Everything is happening at once and I’m being pulled in many different directions and, coupled with the fact that I turned 25 recently, I am feeling a level of personal crisis that I can’t remember experiencing since my angsty teenage days.
My manager at work told me it might be helpful to draw out what my goals are for the next five years, so I did. My drawing skills leave a lot to be desired, but my goals are simple, for the most part: own a house, get back into writing and playing music, get to a point of better mental health, own a cat (or 20), travel as much as I can, have a family or stable relationship at least, earn enough money to facilitate all those things. None of this makes it very clear what my desired career is, which I guess is what my main problem is right now, but I hope I’ll figure that out somewhere along the way.
I am absolutely unable to cope with my mother wearing my old band shirts. Amazing.
I saw my best friend for the first time since January today. We don’t speak all the time and see each other rarely, but every time we catch up it’s like no time has passed at all. She gets where I’m coming from in a way that few others do and I’m so grateful that, 12 years after we first met, we’re still in touch.
We went to the Cat Protection Society near her house in Newtown and played with the kittens. It was a pretty perfect way to spend an afternoon.
My dad was going to post me something but didn’t have my address so he just handed me the envelope he was going to send. LOOK AT HIS ADDRESS STICKER and those fucking dog stickers. I’m crying
I’m in Sydney for my first ever ~business trip~ and my room got upgraded to this fancy suite that has a huge dining/lounge area and ensuite and massive bed to roll around in. Everyone else gets tiny shitty rooms so sucked in, suckers.
It’s actually been really nice to spend time with coworkers who are based interstate - we work closely every day but I had never met some of them face to face until today. Nice to sit around over drinks and just chat.
Also I get to stay in Sydney until Sunday so my work trip is also a short little weekend getaway and I’m looking forward to seeing my family and friends, including my best friend who I haven’t seen in nearly a year.
