Things are looking up which is great. I still feel a bit at the beginning of a journey and things feel very new and exciting. I’ve basically been making more of a conscious effort to e-mail, call etc and organise stuff to do with people I get on with. In the past I’ve either spread myself too thinly where I didn’t really get to know anyone, or I put barriers up…this time I’m aiming to find a happy medium and not worry about all these stupid rules and regulations I’d previously put on myself. I’ve organised to go and see a gig for my birthday, something which I’m dead proud of, because previously I hated celebrating my birthday as I always feared nobody would come and I hadn’t really established any friendships. Nice!

Well…things are looking up which deserves a Tony the Tiger GGGRREEAATT!!! I’ve booked several tickets to see Franz Ferdinand play in December for my birthday; I’ve organised guitar lessons; I’ve organised things to do with friends and have been generally a lot less complacent when it comes to doing things and meeting up with people. I’d previously been very complacent and negative, expecting things to come to me all the time; but have realised its all about being positive, being happy with what you’ve got, appreciating and accepting others and generally going out there and getting what you want, because trust me, things ain’t just going to come and land on your doorstep.
So I’m gonna speak spanish more fluently. I’ve studied it at school and know quite a lot of vocabulary. I just have a problem with putting that vocab into sentences. Also got a problem with trying to express myself when speaking Spanish which can muddle me a bit. I’m thinking “Yeah it was an out of this world experience” and all I can say is “Si, era una experiencia sobresaliente”. Reckon I need to do a bit of a refresher course and then jump into the deep end.
