I haven’t had the time to go through all the photos I took with my digital camera but here are a few from my phone. It was nice! Looking forward to going abroad again soon~
Another day at the office. Literally, and figuratively. Today was a fun day and I’m glad I was able to break free from yesterday’s gloomy grip on me. And even though today’s bike ride ended up being cold and windy I’m trying to stay positive going into fall. Work is going well and we’re continuing to laugh and help each other out. My sessions with my therapist is also positive. She thinks I’m doing very well which is always good to hear considering that you sometimes might doubt that. But I do feel that I’ve become stronger. I don’t give in as easily. I fight and I make what might look bad into something good, and if not good at least something less bad. Proud of myself for that.
But I’m also happy that I have my precious friends and family. Whatever would I do without you? <3
So nothing out of the ordinary today. Just wanted to post a couple of words letting you know that I’m not going into a negativa spiral again 😉
Bang. And another work week passed. Maybe because I finally have quite a few things to do at work, which makes things fun and the hours fly by. Not to mention it’s stimulating. I’ve had a good week, enriched by friends, kind acts, squeezing in some xmas gifts, visiting parents and nice things in general.
Yesterday for instance I went over to the neighbors at work to surprise them with a photo I’ve taken of them. They’re a couple 85 and 80 years old, very sweet and talkative. Ended up having coffee with them and talking for nearly two hours. They were so happy, and so was I. To think that such small things can make a person’s day.
Then I was positively surprised that my landlord offered to pay for a new receiver to replace my old broken one. I can’t think of many people being that nice today, when they don’t really need to. Felt like an xmas gift that came early.
About the only things “bad” right now is that I’m really, really tired and that I’ve grown an interest for a person I shouldn’t have those kind of feelings for. Creates an emotional turmoil that takes it form in various ways. So don’t mind all the rant that goes on here from time to time.
Have a good weekend all of you and pray for a good christmas for everyone around the globe~
I’m growing more and more fond of the idea of working 80% and having Fridays off. Really. That would suit me just perfect. I just have to sell it to myself economically. Why you ask? Well… now I’m here on a Sunday evening again and I find that I haven’t done nearly the things I want to do. Namely I wanted to sit down and play games this weekend but as usual the time has not been there to accomplish that.
Friends, family, work (on a weekend, I know, shoot me) and other stuff has taken up that time and while I don’t dislike any of it (maybe work then) once I sit down on the couch to do those things I plan on doing I really like them. If only tomorrow would have been a free day as well. That extra day. Oh well, at least the week days pass by quickly so there will soon be another weekend. And next weekend, I promise I won’t have anything planned for that. It’ll be you and me, my favorite console!
So this weekend we celebrated sis with family. Went to one of our local favorite places and had some fine food. I was super tired after a tough week at work (my second full-time week) but eventually some calm seeped into me and I was able to relax and enjoy the evening. The day after that I helped a friend out with some work I had promised to do. Took lots of time and energy but hopefully I made him happy in the end. As for me, I swear I won’t be doing much side work in the future. It just eats up too much energy to be worth it honestly. In the evening we played some NHL 16 which is proper fun! Today I’ve been out running with Aigul who’s one of my new friends and also a colleague. I really like her and her family. Her daughter is just too cute and it feels nice to have gotten to know all three of them.
Oh and yeah. I had a hard drive failure in one of my computers. Fortunately it’s in a RAID 5 configuration, meaning that one disk can fail without any of the data on it being lost. Feels good to know that the mail alert system works, notifying me about the issue. So I’ve had to move my blog and a number of other sites. Hopefully it should all be working again. Now I’ve ordered a new drive that I’ll replace the failed one with. And since I have awesome friends who streams media from me I already have had the new drive funded. Thanks guys! Earlier this week we also had a malfunction at work when our mail server completely broke down. Both the drive as well as the hardware. What are the odds!? Hopefully no more hardware failures this year.
Apart from that not much. Life feels good though which is nice. I feel happy and not really stressed in any sense. I really hope that it continues like this for the rest of the year. Really, really do. Also, on a completely different note, check out Quantic Dream’s new game that I’ll be posting a video to at the end of this post.
Hope you all will have a nice coming week! Hugs~
I’ve had one of those days today, where it feels like your head isn’t really waking up properly. You’re sleepy all the time. So today I’ve had a rest day more or less. Haven’t really done anything but leisurely stuff.
This morning I watched the MotoGP qualification session. Man this season is so exciting and now there are only two races left with Rossi leading Lorenzo with 11 points. Things can turn quickly though and tomorrow’s race is gonna be important since the last race is more or less a home race for Lorenzo. After that me and dad went to Borås to see if there was something interest to be bought when NetOnNet had their (re)opening sale. I came home with these things:
After that went home, picked up sis @ the bus station and went home for some coffee. Then I thought I’d go for some biking and head out to Elinore for a fun night and a movie. But I made the “mistake” of lying on the bed and ended up sleeping from 3pm to 6pm, haha. And I’ve been kinda tired all day now. Was probably for the best though. It’s been a long week considering it was my first week working full time and two really long days, coming home around 9-10pm. So I decided to take a proper rest day and neither visit my friend nor exercise. A decision both hard and easy. Hard because I like to do stuff I enjoy, but easy because I have to think about my health properly from now on.
Now I’m gonna hook up the Xbone and see what it’s like. Actually getting quite excited about playing Forza again. Gotta love car games. Really! It’s gonna be an autumn full of gaming I feel.
Have a nice weekend all of you!
PS. Swedbank is finally gonna update their Internet bank. Woho! Not a day late. It’s been really dated compared to the competition. I’ve signed up for the beta. Let’s see what it’s like~ DS
And for my Swedish readers this is a must watch!
