Day 765: The 30th of August

Today was cold and also chill.

Really the best of all worlds. Other than stepping on broken glass and bleeding from my foot, it was a fairly relaxed day to play some XCOM 2 and wrap myself up in a fleece for warmth.

The evening was spent in Wetherspoons, for the first of three meetups this week. We are single-handedly keeping them in business at this point.

Day 764: The 29th of August

Nice to chill with some friends and play games like the old times.

It reminds me of back when my little gang of friends used to Skype call each other every evening after school to have fun together. Those were easier days.

Day 763: The 28th of August

My appetite is significantly smaller these days.

Couldn’t really eat much breakfast. Didn’t help that I was still in a half-asleep daze, but still. Ate a bit more dinner when we had a barbeque, but still not as much as I would have in the past.

Still, today was alright. Ben’s parents came down in order to look after Corwin this week, so there’s that.

Day 761: The 26th of August

Well. I enjoyed myself quite a bit today, really.

It was nice to actually catch up on some MLP at long last. Especially since these last few episodes have really knocked it out of the park in terms of quality. I do love it when they manage to surprise me and bring something really fresh and amazing to the table.

I also spent some time with my nephew, whilst Emma and Ben visited the hospital due to my sister having knee troubles. He was in a pretty good mood and I only had him for a little while. It was pretty much the best sort of time to spend with the little guy.

Tomorrow I plan to get up at a reasonable time and see if the guys want to do something. They mentioned something along those lines today, although we didn’t finalise anything. As long as I manage to stay awake, I should be able to sort out some fun.

Day 760: The 25th of August

Argh! What am I doing!

I mean, at least I managed to get up closer to the morning today, but still. What am I doing with my time? Today was yet another day of not finding anything that I really wanted to do, so I just sat in limbo all day. I guess you could say I was recovering from last night, but that doesn’t really count for much.

I dunno, I just kinda feel like a waste of space right now. I’ve used up so much of my holidays already, though there is still a while left for me. My weeks are spent in quiet anticipation for the day where I get to meet up with people and spend far too much money and other than that not much happens.

Even now my life is still strongly dictated by other people’s actions. Pretty much everything I do comes down to someone else somewhere along the line. Not that I don’t like what I do, but it seems very rarely to be on my initiative.

No point worrying about that for now I guess. I am just going to go with the flow tomorrow as well. Let’s see how things pan out.

Day 759: The 24th of August

Short but sweet.

It was my weekly meet-up tonight, and it turned out pretty well. The entire day was fairly short for me though, since I woke up at 3 PM. Need to start setting my alarm and waking up in the morning for a change. Even though I was still pretty tired when I woke up today.

At least I managed not to be a huge downer at this evening’s event. Actually managed to be relatively chill throughout, other than some heated discussions about some of the more toxic members of our little community. Still, it was alright.

Day 756: The 21st of August

I spent today looking after Corwin.

In the loosest sense of the word, given that I didn’t feed him or anything. Honestly I was kind of thinking that my mother and sister would be back in relative haste after dropping him off with me in the morning. Instead I had him until mid-afternoon, after which I watched him until other people returned and took over.
