Time I Got Back To Writing

Rants and Raves

Hello. Yes, you. It’s been a while hasn’t it?

I can’t remember the last time I wrote something on WordPress or the last poem I created or an adventure worth sharing; so this got me thinking… Where did my imagination go? My creativity? Perhaps the old creative mind has gone into hibernation.

Since I last blogged about something, I have managed to get a job in a call centre and got a pay rise only to leave a week later (I lasted one and a half weeks!), a few days later I got a new job as an Aviation Security Officer (sounds awesome right?) and it is pretty awesome apart from a few disgruntled and rude passengers.

I’ve also managed to finally get a car and crash it a few weeks of driving too! I was always going to crash… just had that unsettling feeling in the back of my head but now I have had my first crash, I shall live and learn from it! and fyi, it wasn’t a serious crash but it did give me a little shock.

Anyway, the plan now is to blog regularly again. Not only so to get back into blogging and reading everyone else’s blogs etc… but hopefully I can continue to venture down my creative side again, produce some new material and of course, explore more blogs and people.

Any suggestions on any material I can write about? Perhaps you can inspire me?

Hello WordPress, my old friend

Rants and Raves

Hey all,

Don’t worry guys, I’m alive and well… only just! haha

So, to keep this short and simple. Since the last post I wrote, a lot has happened.

From being reunited with my long lost cousin to getting a job.

let me start with my first job that I got through an agency. Possibly the weirdest phone call I have any got and if I recall it went something like this “Hello? Is that Andrew? Would you like a job starting tomorrow? Yes? okay, I’ll email you the details.” and that was that.

So yeah, I got the job. No interview needed. Little to none training. And what a stressful week and a half that has been! The job title was “Data Processor” but truth be told, I worked in a call centre-esc job ringing people after people… After a week, I just gave up. I started getting anxious and if a job can do that to you then it’s not worth it. Especially if I did just get a pay rise after two days! haha

Anyway, two days after quitting I got a new job. I have to be sensitive with the information I put out here but I’m just a security guy who works at a place with lots of planes haha. So far, so bloody awesome! The people are great and friendly. The job seems interesting and varied. And me being a typical guy… Dayumm… Some of my colleagues are HAWT.

Oh yeah, I’m also licensed to frisk! haha

One of my best friends has also gone to Spain to look after his ill grandparents so that’s a little heartbreaking. We don’t know when he’ll be back considering I’ve spent every night chilling with him since my break from university.

There’s plenty more to tell but I guess I really don’t have the energy anymore. I suppose I’m doing what I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and that’s just to do something of myself.

Anyway, I guess my correspondence on WordPress will be a minimal.

ta ta for now.

Dance With The Devil

Quote Of The Day, Rants and Raves

Dance With Devil

Usually, I would post a title with “A Little Quote Of The Day” but this is so much more than a lyric or a quote. This is a story. And such an descriptive story yet somehow I wonder, could this story be true?

DISCLAIMER: The following lyrics do contain strong language that some readers may find offensive.

Instagram Quotes That Can Sink Your Boat Or Keep You Afloat

Life's Lessons, Rants and Raves

Hey all,

I’ve been browsing through Instagram for a long time and specifically, I follow “thegoodquote.co” because of their highly relate-able quotes that hits me in the heart many many times. So I just thought I would share a few with you.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There’s just that something when you read something that means something (haha). I guess that’s what makes us humans… Our abilities to feel, and embrace our emotions. And the way words can hit certain part of your heart, mind, and soul. It still confuses me how and why a set of words or a simple sentence can be so powerful but hey, call it art. Somethings we don’t have to comprehend but just go along with.

In times where I have been so low and down and well, just depressed, I find comfort in reading quotes (sad or happy), just so I know that it is possible to explain some feelings into words but most importantly, whoever wrote the quotes in the first place must have experienced the same as me also.

So, in my current emotional state, I just want to say, make the most of your day and enjoy everything and anything.



ps. For those who know that I sign off with a “ta ta for now”, I think it’s cooler to say peace instead LOL.

Isn’t it weird?

Rants and Raves

Isn’t it weird how one person can put a smile on your face? Isn’t it weird how you can feel so natural with someone and just get along as if you have been talking for years?Or Isn’t it weird how your week can be turned upside down, wrong way round, by one person? …From the good, the bad, and the damn right hilarious!

I won’t go into too much details* but if you can read between the lines then that’s awesome!

*I end up talking a lot about nothing. 

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Enough Is Enough.”

This is just one of my many experiences where I’ve ended up fighting on… Stubbornly may I say too.

So once upon a time, I liked this girl… a lot. We talked a lot and liked each other a lot too. So I ended up asking her out, but she had her doubts.

She felt that she didn’t want to be “hurt” again. So I told her I would never hurt her.

She said she was worried about what other people think. So I told her why should we care about other people when it’s about me and you?

She said she was afraid to love again after her previous relationship. So I said, don’t let your past burden your future or you’ll be stuck there.

etc etc etc

In the end, we went into a relationship. It was brilliant and I loved everything second of it until her heart had a change of mind.

Then it ended. Pain and misery then rained on my parade.

I kept trying to keep it together and I tried so hard too but I could already see the end. I fought to win her and I fought to keep her… All for a chance.

If asked whether I would do it again I would say yes.

That’s right. YES.

I realised that, if you don’t try then you just won’t know and she wasn’t the one for me. Take a lesson from all the bad in your life experiences. Learn from it.

Enough Is Enough

Alcohol drinking. Cigarette smoking. And Sofa Sleeping

Rants and Raves

Hey all

Always posting something from my weekend but don’t worry, I’ve been feeling fairly inspired from it and from reading other people’s work, so I should be able to come up with something artful (to say the least) this week.

Friday: I stayed in and watched films till late. Instead of sleeping of sleeping in my own bed, I felt lazy and slept on the sofa.

Saturday: Woke up early for my Russian lessons, and come early afternoon, I had opened my first can of alcohol and lit my first fag for the day… Football was coming.

And by this I mean my club (The mighty Derby County Football Club), play in a cup match against Chesterfield FC… you could say it’s a Derbyshire Derby, But for you guys who don’t know much about football or soccer, and English Geography, It was essentially a David and Goliath football match however David was 2-0 down and had lost. haha

Anyway, drinking kinda progressed throughout the day. It’s kind of a typical English Football fan’s day out and I also think that this side of English culture is actually interesting. If you have the any interest at all but still uncertain what this side of culture is, then I’d recommend watching Green Street, Football Factory, or Mean Machine. (films about football hooligans!)

Anyway. Drink. Watch the game. Drink. Drink. Drink. etc etc and as the night was nearing, me and my friends decided to head to play pool for a few hours before we eventually headed home… well… I was locked out due to some miscommunication between myself and my parents so I ended up on another night on a sofa. Brilliant.

Sunday: woke up midday only to be given the nicest breakfast from my friend’s mum. I really needed to replenish my stomach after all that drinking. We then ended up driving aimlessly for a while but hey… any company is good company in my books.

It seems like no weekend is the same anymore for me. Perhaps that’s a good thing.

Another Weekend, Another Week

Rants and Raves

Hey all,

Apologies for my lack of appearance on wordpress. Still a blogger at heart so don’t you worry about my absence! haha

Anyway, the things I am up to at this moment in my life is boring. I am currently in process in finding a job, going through several recruitment agencies to find the right one for me… all is just a hastle and time seems to be ticking away faster than usual.

I’ve applied to be a logistics driver, data administrator, a receptionist, data analyst… the list goes on. I feel like my life is coming to a standstill unless I can do something. The only thing I can do is wait…

On the other hand, all is not so gloom. On Saturday I organised a film marathon with my friends. Probably didn’t get to sleep until 5am only to be woken up again shortly after haha! By the way, If you’ve heard of the film “The Theory Of Everything” then I’d highly recommend that film! If you haven’t heard of it, then it’s essentially a biography about Steven Hawkins and his life with motor neurone disease.

so from my weekend I learnt one thing. Not everyone enjoys going out and drinking and clubbing etc etc, but everyone does enjoy a quiet night in sometimes.. an it’s even better with friends.

That’s me in a nutshell recently.

Hope your lives are better than mine!

ta ta for now.
