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…
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
… 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!!
Perhaps it’s worth mentioning at the start that I have never dabbled with drugs (apart from prescribed anti-depressants) and that I officially gave up drinking a few six-years ago (even though, one lowly weekend in July left me forcing a bottle of red wine down my throat). So, my views in this one aren’t likely to be the most positive…
Day 20 – My Views on Drugs and Alcohol
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
Well, it probably comes as no surprise to the majority of people reading this which band I’ve chosen to write this letter to… 😉 I might even write a second letter though, as there is another (solo) artist who has helped and inspired me throughout the last nine-years since I first discovered his own music away from the band he is (was) commonly associated with.
Day 13 – A band or artist that has gotten me through some tough ass days
‘Some-thing‘ only has to be ‘one thing‘ and that doesn’t have to be ‘the number one‘ item on my list either because, I’m not quite sure of what that is!
