You probably know it as well as I do; there’s only one person right know who I’m going create this playlist for and that’s ‘May’. The one person I love; the one person I will never be able to love. I haven’t quite decided how to do this but, I think I’ll start by posting a list of songs first, followed by the text to explain why. It’s going to be a list of songs that, in my mind, depicts the timeline of our abstract friendship since the beginning of May.
This one has been sat in my drafts folder for a number of weeks now. I know that I’ve had situations in the past where I didn’t get praised for things I felt were going un-noticed. That was in a previous job (or two) but now, that aspect of my work receives better respect (even if I don’t always receive direct or sincere appraisal for it). I’ve been thinking of how to answer this one and, very recently, I came to the realisation that I’m not even sure who I would be seeking the appraisal(s) from…
Someone at work? A family member? Non-existent friend?! Some I meet or have met through a dating website?
Day 12 – Something I Never Get Compliments On
It hasn’t taken long at all for me to realise how I’m going to respond to today’s challenge. The thought arrived almost immediately, in fact.
Day 29 – Something I Hope to Change About Myself. And Why.
It’s late. Very late. Midnight has passed and, already, Sunday is here. I should be heading to bed for my last lie-in before another five-days of early starts but, I’m sat here, trying to make amends for the ‘weakness’ I’ve shown in my previous post.
Day 27 – The Best Thing Going for Me Right Now
Leading on from my last post, I’d like to say that it’s the fact that I’m a ‘genuine’ guy, whatever that means, hahaha…
Things haven’t been easy for the last twenty-four hours but, I’m still here and, don’t worry; I have no intention of going anywhere other than out for another outdoor adventure tomorrow. I will be back! 🙂 But I’ve skipped Day 24 because, although I could pick some songs, I really don’t know who I’d write or send them to at this time, which could consequently affect my selections. So, on we go to the next.
Day 25 – The Reason I Believe I’m Still Alive Today
My first thought on this one takes me back to the time around and preceding my A-Levels, which should’ve ended in the summer of 2003 (but, I dropped out). The fact that I was going to quit seemed inevitable throughout the second year so, I don’t regret that decision now as much as I used to…
Day 23 – Something I Wish I Had Done in My Life
Another day and another challenge. I’ve already worked my way up in to the twenties, which means I haven’t got long left until this month-long challenge is complete! I’m going to try and approach these remaining days as spontaneous and instinctively as possible. Without giving too much and allowing an answer to come through naturally; acknowledging and accepting it.
Day 22 – Something I Wish I Hadn’t Done in My Life
… and you Two got in a Fight an Hour Before. What do You do?
My first reaction would be to congratulate myself on having a best friend – honestly, I think it’s been about seventeen years since I last had one!!
Okay, I don’t really have much of an interest in either of these so, I’m going to try and respond to them both!
Day 19 – What I Think of Religion and Politics
I’ve been neglecting this challenge a little bit lately because I seem to have now come up against a short series of challenges that I’m finding hard to respond to. It’s as if I don’t have any opinion of them or any relevant experience to relate to. But, I’m going to press on and attempt to to respond to one right now…
Day 18 – My Views on Gay Marriage
To be honest, I don’t really feel as though I have much of a view on this, whether we’re talking about gay men or lesbian women.
Marriage, to me, represents a life-long commitment between two people to one another. Some view it as the ‘ultimate’ achievement and ambition for a couple but, I don’t think that the hard work and drive should suddenly stop there.
I’m not religious in any way but, if two people love each other and want to share that commitment then, where does gender come in to it? Let them be. We’re not talking about a man marrying a dog, here! People should be allowed to live their lives. There is a religious aspect to it but, I believe that most people judge this sort of action simply because of the society we live in and the condescending influence that the media has on our everyday lives.
I should perhaps add that I am not gay, not religious, I’ve never been married and, before clicking the ‘Publishing‘ button, I realised that I was about to publish a post concerning my views on “Gary Marriage“!! I’m not suggesting that I would get in early to steal a seat on the front row or anything – these are just my views. 🙂
