16/10/2013 – Wet Wet Wet

Photo 16-10-2013 13 25 12We’ve certainly stepped into a typical British Autumn/Winter as the weather has no idea what it’s doing.

I took this photo on my lunch break, it was chucking it down… but by 3pm it was clear skies… Maybe that person I mentioned before isn’t on my side after all.

Today was a dull day, cycle into work, work, lunch, work, cycle home, eat turkey dinosaurs, play GTA with Andy. Not much else to say, apart from the fact after 6pm I seem to turn into a 12 year old boy.

15/10/2013 – You Can Do This

20131015-235947.jpg

Like any ‘normal’ person, I struggle. Life can be hard.

Today I got the tube to work. For those that don’t know, the Northern Underground Line is by far the worst line to get into London at 8-9am on a weekday. You haven’t seen packed public transport before you have to place your feet on and pull yourself on using the over head bars… not before getting the back of your head smacked by the closing door of course.

Upon arriving into Leicester Square I had already lost hope with my Tuesday. My normal 30 minute cycle had taken over an hour on the tube, and I was much more sweatier.

That, however, was when I was greeted by the above sign. Sometimes things just fall into place, but until that happens, you have to keep striving on.

09/08/2012 – Things will work out

This was put up in my office a few days ago by one of the developers I believe – love it.

My new job is going well, I’m very busy, but doing what I love, graphic design. I read a few months ago “Happiness is a journey, not a destination” – as corny as that sounds and normally the sort of quote that would be in Helvetica on top of an unrelated photo of the Eiffel Tower, I like it.
Too many times I feel like I’m working towards a final outcome where I’ll be happy, but I should be happy now, and living life now. 

And last, to quote the amazing Monty Python. –

You’ll see it’s all a show,
Keep ’em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And this, is why I love my family. Told my mum how I was stressed, so she sent me this card with a message from her and my sister. They’re just the loveliest people. Another day of work at uni, made loads of progress with my app, only 3 days now until my final hand-in!

Spent today in uni and it was the funniest of days. I really love my friends, my stomach was hurting from laughing so much, and I got lots of work done. Everything is going smoothy at the moment, and I’m trying to take moments out to appriciate this! So as I forgot to document anything today, here’s my Instagram ‘Smile’ photo I took for my Twitter. It’s a bit lame, but if you know how rubbish 2010 was for me, hopefully it’ll mean a bit more to you. 🙂Image
