This weekend has been truly wonderful and awful at the same time. I have been training for a week straight now. But in the past 3 days I have:

- Spent some quality time with some great people
- Had wonderful food
- Made so much progress skill wise
- Burst a blood vessel in my eye
- Split my nose open
- Probably burnt some important bridges

This week past will certainly be one I will never forget.

#16 - Coming soon

Sometimes you just can't get a smile out of people, the stupid things I've done to get a smile out of a stranger would need more than the hands and toes of my friends and family to count. It's always pleasant, the possibility that you have made someones day a litte more interesting, amusing or just giving them a story to tell.

I was raised to help people where ever and however I can but I am growing a little tired of people people thinking you are weird when you'd give up a jacket for someone that is cold or helping someone for no reason. Since when was it not ok to be kind to people?
I'm having far too much fun to willingly go back to uni next week. Training, sleeping, relaxing and earning enough to get by is something I am growing used to very quickly.

"It's just an observation I can't ignore
That people could smile more" - Newton Faulkner

I really love juggling...just sayin'

#15 People

People just confuse the whole situation, wish they didn't but that's just the way it is.

#14 - Holidays?

Right now I am meant to be on a weeks holidays from uni, no mathematics, economics or abstract thought for an entire week, right? WRONG. I just found out that I have two, possibly three examinations at the beginning of next week. Looks as though I won't be having as much fun as I was hoping.

#13 - The New Beginning

Last Saturday I moved into my new house for the next 12 months. It seems at the moment that things will be so much easier, with significantly lowered travel time and a house mate that actually has some form of motivation. Who knows, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't be optimistic.

#12 - WOO!

This pretty much sums it up. Not big on posting pictures, but who cares.

#11 - A New Year

Well this is my first post of the new year, the year of the legs. New years eve was enjoyable even though I had to work. Who would have thought you could have meaningful conversation with a drunk person when you haven't had a drop.

In the past few weeks I went out with friends from uni who I hadn't seen since uni finished for 2010, so about two months. Kind words were received and yes, it was better than a fat pie.

I hope to this year. Make more effort to meet new people and forge friendships that are worth holding onto now that I feel settled into my new city. I started a new job, which seems purely voluntary at present. I have to talk to a lot of people: I get brutally rejected on some instances, being sworn at and looked at like I am the scourge of humanity. But somehow I am enjoying it. Hopefully the lessons will transfer over into other areas of life which will make things easier in the short and long term.
