Brain-fried.

After I walk the dogs, I feel like myself again.

Brain-fried.

After punching the clock out, I always feel much better.

I kinda was enjoying the gazes of the girls on-campus today. If I bother to make eye contact they get all girly, and as tommy would say, them's is sweet young gals. There must be filthy old (and young) men out there who would love my job. Myself, I don't fiddle with the customer.

I rode out today's three classes, hit the campus supermarket and treated myself to a beer on the steps of the main admin building. Feels food to have the next two days off. Then the sheer joy of IELTS examining this weekend..

Re. doing something to escape: give me something fast - a bike or car. That'll sort out my escapism. Preferably something that can hit 200km/h in less than 10 seconds. Can't guarantee how long I'll last though (although I'm pretty good at the bars/wheel).

Bangers. Bangers. Bangers... and mash. Hmm, now I'm hungry.

I finish work at 10 pm mon to fri, normally feel pretty knackered. On the way home, I contemplate going for a run ... then end up popping by the local family mart for a few tinnies.

Do you have a girlfriend? Not just someone you're sleeping with, but someone you care for? Or some really good guy friends? Sounds like you may be lonley. Conversation classes and IELTS examining don't make for much of a life. You can do them on auto pilot. You need more intellectual stimulation, more and deeper human interaction.

Maybe. Take that vacation, but try not to take it alone. You should invite a really good friend to go with you.

You just sound like all the living has gone out of your life.

I feel kinda wilted after a day at work, but maybe because that's the easy part. When I get home I still have to "homemake," clean, cook, clean, be a mom, clean, clean.

Yes a GF to love and hang out with is the best. Barring that, a few good buds to have a brew and hang out with is pretty cool too.

You may have motivated me to start my walks again to keep in shape (or get in shape rather) by walking the berkeley campus and seeings those godzillions of hotties there. Always a treat.

I feel pretty good after knocking off. I kinda like my job, which helps. Just one evening class tomorrow and my girl is bringing me breakfast in bed well after sun up. I still don't know if I got lucky with life or I made some right decisions. But I don't really care, either way. Life is good. :thumbsup:

This.

I miss having a pet A LOT. But you don't don't get a doggie or kittie knowing you could leave in a the next six months or so. That's unfair to them.

I'll be brutally honest - I have a girl in my confines tonight. But she's a traveler. The comfort is awesome, but tomorrow she moves on.

EDIT: got nothing to lose, I'm going to be nice to everybody, see how that works. I dropped a tenner in the old lady's basket. I should be doing that every day innit.

Smile more, give more space, etc etc.
