Memories 1

I remember…
Back in, well it most have been year 8. Both Tim and Ben had been made library moniters, from the group of friends I had which spent all their time outside, we didn’t really fit in outside. I felt quite left out, even then. I tried to create myself a place to fit in, I created a role that I seemed to fit in, as a IT support guy. I remember the day that the IT teacher told me basically that to fuck off, although the nice librarian had approved it, anything of that nature that to pass through her and she didn’t approve it. So I was once again left with nothing.

Motivation

Hello all,

So. This my third attempt at making a blog post, each post on separate issues. I know how I feel, but I don’t know how to express it.

I guess I still don’t, but this time at least I am saying there is something there.

 

Yesterday, I took off my necklace for the first time in at least a week, maybe two weeks. In about a weeks time, I think 9 days or so, I will put it back on, as then I can change its meaning.

I was a fool, but nothing new there. On the upside, I broke my fall when I tripped up yesterday. Small steps I guess. I also said something I have wanted to say for a long time. (Wow, 9 days was exactly right!) Ok, so the scope was the day, but still.

I followed Step 1 and 2. Now what? I don’t know.

I guess Trigger is right, I am a pushover. Maybe Andy is right, I am too nice. However, there is the other side as well. I understand why you would run away…

I am sorry. Its not enough, but I don’t know what else to say. Someone said be the change you want to see in the world. So I guess even if others are going to fuck me over, then I need to fix myself before judging them.

I wish I had absolute faith in an idea. Any idea. But I don’t, and I think that it is comforting for those who do.

I wonder if this will still make sense to even me later?

‘Whatever keeps you warm at night…’

Hello all,

I remember earlier today, at bowling. I bowling absolutly rubbishly, but I didn’t care for the most part. Something that is quite rare for me, at a competitive sport, to be doing badly, and yet still having a really good time. And I know why, and it was nothing to do with why others there might have been happy, to do with the lies that I have no choice but to tell all but two people.

Still, whenever I think of things ‘She’ does, I think of what I was told by my friend, back about 2 years ago. It seems her advice has always been worth taking, she was the only person who thought I might be wrong in the decision I made, and it seems she was right. I don’t begrudge the fact she is with him anymore, I actually realised earlier I have moved on, however she still has responsibilities she isn’t meeting.

My mind moves, with the thought of her now not talking to me at all it seems, of other friends I have lost over the years. I remember that Alison told me, back in year 1, that I should forgive myself for my mistakes, and not always blame myself. Yet, if I didn’t do something wrong, it seems they just found people better than me.

As I write this, my mind races, I find it hard to concentrate, and I had the weird distance perception thing a while back. How do I break this loop?

Concepts of Concurrency Part 2

Hello,

I doubt this will be as long as my usual ‘rambles’ posts, as I need to be up in 4 hours, 15 minutes. I have a bowling competition, in Leeds, of all places. And yes, I realise the irony of this, although I don’t believe anyone does – me and my feelings on Leeds that is, not the fact there is a bowling competition there. More on this later.

Maths. A subject, yes. But talking about it does mean you refer to it at its base class. I referred, implicitly to statistics, and maybe if you were not certain what I meant, you should have stayed the fuck off my status. On the note of what I actually meant, aye – statistics. Statistics I don’t like, that place me well below average. Am I really that bad? OkCupid reports that, from guys, on average, 1 out of 3 messages are responded to. I don’t get anywhere close to that rate. Does this mean there is something wrong with me, as a good number of the people view my profile, but then I receive no reply? What am I doing wrong, I am expected to give advice, I am meant to always have an answer, but how can I advise on something I am failing at myself? And most importantly, how am I meant to believe Her or my friends, when they tell me I am a ‘good catch’, if the evidence, the logic says differently.

Her. Aye… I made a promise to one of my very closest friends, which I truly intend to keep, but it will not be easy, not easy at all. I don’t know what other light to look for, before I would be happy, then very sad, now it seems it will just be sad, sadder. Its not fair to the others who care about me, but I can’t help how I feel. I can not help but also fear the lose of those important to me, it is happened before. And before people told me just because it happened before it might not happen again, and yet it did.

What should I do?

Choices

Hello again,

I want to tell a story. There is a friend, who we will call Pandora. (To clarify, this is not the car that I am talking about!). She was with a guy, who will we call Michael. In a train station, she ODed on paracetamol. On my advice and urging, as I was miles away, Michael took Pandora to A&E, and with a bit of help she was fine.

Another events, using the same names (to refer to different people), then Pandora overdosed, Michael as soon as he found out took her to A&E. Another time, she feel unconscious for any unknown reason, he phoned an ambulance, made sure she was ok. He tells me he is not sure if she would do the same for him, if he did the same now. There is nothing I can do to tell, for only she can help him right now. I don’t want to lose him however.

Life is never easy,

Robert

Invisibility

Evening all,

In the past, I have noticed that I sometimes can be unnoticed. This is both useful at times, and saddening at others. An example is that, maybe sometimes I have avoiding paying tram fare, as the conductor just seems to not notice me. In others times, it can be a right bitch, for instance when a group of friends doesn’t notice that you are not there.

Ethics. A tricky issue. There is a thin line between what you are allowed to do, and what you are not allowed to do. However, it is not a fixed point. I have broken my own morals before, to help either myself, or to help others, or both. Where should that line be drawn? I have even broken the law, not to mention my morals, to make someone slightly happier, although I wish the reasons for them being happy were different.Yet, in return, I ask something that has been given before, under similar if not the same circumstances, and it is denied. And my efforts, for both selfish and selfless reasons in fact, will have been for nothing as the person just went behind my back. I think, what I asked, if I knew the situation, if I had have been in the third parties shoes, I would have been ok with it. Yet, one, the third party is a prick (mostly objective opinion), and he has no idea of the situation. However, the person would be happy with me out the way, hence why they are a prick. But I get off topic. Short term is just as important as long term, I think. However, if there is no-one who can help, what am I to do?

What can I do?

Robert
