Short ‘n’ sweet!

LOVE is a funny thing.
But I’m enjoying it immensely.

WORK is an annoying thing.
But I’ll be starting somewhere new in May.

GOOD TIMES all around!

The future is…

March 11, 2010

Interestingly I snapped out of lethargy for long enough the other week to apply for a job. It’s a promotion within my existing work place actually (bottom feeder to management), but a job none the less. Considering how down I usually am about my job, it’s come as a surprise (perhaps even to me) how enthusiastic I am about the prospect. For the first time in a long time I feel as though I have a goal for myself, and I have to say, I’m excited about it. I want this job.

I had my interview today, which I think went well. The problem is that I’m starting to get the feeling that the company may decide to employ externally rather than up through the ranks. The other negative is that if they do decide for an internal climbing of the ladder, not only one of my close friends, but also my girlfriend have gone for the same job – awkward much?!

Ah well, fingers crossed, hope for the best and let’s see what happens…

Calling all geeks…

So one of the many DVDs I had this Christmas, was a film called Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel  (wierd title right?!). Anyways, after splitting my sides for a good hour watching this flick, I feel I am doing my duty by spreading the word, and telling you all to watch this movie …it’s a good ‘un!!

Oh, and I promise it’s better than the trailer makes it look… ;p

It’s secret time!

No day but today…

September 5, 2009

Living without regret is going to be my new aim in life.
Stop living in the past. Things change. Move on with them, or step out of their way.
Here’s to…

drinking year old Absinthe as if it meant nothing, replacing the Italian keyring from my keys, and taking down the last picture of you I have.
 

The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn
There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment as my last
There’s only us
There’s only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today

A few secrets to post…

I’ve got a huge decision to make, and if I had the confidence of the above secret, I’d make it and never look back… we’ll see!

Word of the wise…

January 18, 2009

I am a fan of One Tree Hill. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but at the beginning or end of almost every episode,, one of the characters will have a voiceover with a thought, message or literary quote. Now don’t laugh, but I actually find many of these to be rather inspirational. Not only that, but often, they seem to say the things that I have always wanted to say. So here are some of my favourites…

 

Nathanial Hawthorne once wrote: “No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself — and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true.”

Douglas Adams once wrote: ‘He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream, and he sometimes wondered whose it was, and whether they were enjoying it.’

Tennessee Williams once wrote – “When so many are lonely as seem to be lonely, it would be inexcusably selfish to be lonely alone.”

“Sometimes, you have to step outside of the person you’ve been. And remember the person you were meant to be. The person you wanted to be. The person you are.”

IDA Scott Taylor wrote: ‘Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone, and do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.’

George Eliot once wrote: ‘There is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and healed, to have despaired and have recovered hope.’

“You know it’s been said that we just don’t recognize the significant moments of our lives while they’re happening. We grow complacent with ideas, or things or people and we take them for granted and it’s usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you that you’ve realized how wrong you’ve been that you realized how much you need it, how much you love it.”

“You ever heard the expression ‘The best things in live are free.’ Well that expression is true.’ Every once in a while, people step up they rise above themselves sometimes they surprise you and sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes. It can push pretty hard but if you look close enough, you can find hope in the words of children, in the bars of the song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you’re lucky, if you’re the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back.”

“You ever look at a picture of yourself and see a stranger in the background? It makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you, how many moments of other peoples lives have we been in, we’re we a part of someone’s life when their dreams came true, or were we there when their dreams died. Did we keep trying to get in, as if we were somehow destined to be there, or did the shot take us by surprise. Just think, you could be a big part of someone else’s life, and not even know it.”

“Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small like when we do a bad thing for a good reason. Some are bigger like when you let down a friend. Some of us escape the pain of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret because we’re looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past, and sometimes we bury our regret by promising to change your own ways. But, our biggest regrets are not for the things we did — but, for the things we didn’t do. Things we didn’t say that could’ve save someone that we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that’s headed their way.”

“If you could go back and change one thing about your life, would you? And if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart? Or break the heart of another? Or would you choose an entirely different path? Or would you change just one thing, just one moment? One moment, that you’ve always wanted back…”

“Much as some of us fight it, our parents have a mystical hold over us, the power to affect our thoughts and emotions the way only they can. It’s a bond that changes over time, but doesn’t diminish, even if they’re half a world away, or in another world entirely. It’s a power we never fully understand. We’re left only to wonder that when our time comes, what kind of hold will we have on our children?”

and finally…

Peyton: “Name a wish, place it in your heart. Anything you want, everything you want.

Lucas: “Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know when the next miracle can come from, the next smile, the next wish come true.”

Peyton:“But if you believe that it’s right around the corner. And you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it, to the serenity of it.”

Brooke: “You just may get the thing your are wishing for.”

Nathan:The world is full of magic you just have to believe it. So make your wish. Do you have it?”

Haley: “Good. Now believe in it with all you heart.”

Starting something…

January 9, 2009

Love has the power to change everything.

I believe that. Do you?

I’m writing something; a story of me, of us, of love, of loss, of hopes, of dreams, of what has been and what could be.

This  is only the beginning…

“You’ve seen each other naked..”

December 29, 2008

“In a perfect world, the ideal would be for exes to succeed at being friends, but in one where bitterness, jealousy, passion, and human nature exceed reasoning and rational thought, it’s impossible. So unless the two of you were the best of friends before; both broke up on the same terms in a perfectly mutual breakup; both have no qualms about either of you seeing new people, and have both instilled a total honesty policy, better to leave the friendship behind… along with the memories.”

Do you think this is true…?
