See ya 2013
Another year is almost over and 2014 is knocking on our doors! Hopefully it can be a year where we all welcome the visitor, who will bring many positive gifts.
For me, 2013 was a kind of a difficult year. Not as traumatic as 2012 was, but it was still hard. I faced a lot of challenges with mental health, lost a friend to suicide, lost my dear grandparents dog and lived in a numb daze a lot of the time. However, I was lucky in that I had my parents there for me and two good
noodles friends named Nicole and Claire who put up with my craziness and for some strange reason still wanted to be friends. Siriusly Seriously though, they really helped me in so many ways and inspired to give me hope.
What do I want for 2014? I mainly hope that I can settle and try to find stability. I don’t want to make major plans for the future until I am at a place where I am thinking clearly and can handle all that goes with major decisions (take 2012, where I thought my only option was to start a business). I hope that I will reach out for help and keep striving to get to a good place while also still working on creative projects and sharing love with the people I care about.
Now for some kind of random things.
Firstly, it is the 1st of October, so we all know what that means!? The domain competition is officially closed. I shall be looking over all the applications and deciding on three lucky winners in the next few days. I know I have received many wonderful applications so it’s going to be hard to pick!
My Dad has been okay. He has to go to Sydney tomorrow for a meeting with a specialist on Friday to give him more information and find out when they will do the operation. He does have bowel cancer, but the part we can be thankful for is that it is only in the one place and has not spread! It sounds strange for my brain to register to be thankful for that, but if it had spread I think I would be a total mess!
I have been reading so much this week, I just can’t stop. I read Breaking Dawn, Chatroom and My Darling, My Hamburger. My favourite from the three was actually Braking Dawn. Chatroom and My Darling, My Hamburger were, to be perfectly honest, boring. I plan on doing some more book shopping either tonight or in the morning, because Seek Books has a PayPal special of free shipping within in Australia, can’t pass that up!
Spiritually things have been moving forward quite well! I have a new contact and spiritual aid who has been such a great support and help. I know if this was something I was doing on my own it would be a lot harder and I am forever grateful for their time and patience they have given me. :wub:
HOPEFULLY, the comment issue has finally been resolved. If anyone that visits could just leave a random comment here, I can confirm that everything is smooth sailing. I will leave this layout as is until I know for sure everything is cool. I reinstalled WordPress, because it seems to have been having other issues as well that I didn’t notice.
I also wish to send a tribute to Australian Actor Mark Priestley who died yesterday. I was quite shocked to hear that he had died, and even more so that he was suffering from depression and took his own life. I have watched him over the years on the Australian TV show All Saints and although I wasn’t a great fan of his character I still liked him. We are loosing to many talented people this year, it just has to fucking stop.
Up again early in the morning to stay with Nanna. We had a really great day on Wednesday. Watched some movies, spent some time outside. I even had a chance to read some more of my book A Clockwork Orange, I am so close to finishing, but I shall hold my tongue until the last page has been flipped, but I will say I think the book is really something!
I also finished the fanlisting for actor Ben Foster, you know you want to join.
