Finally I feel like I've made it back to happiness.

And I did it for myself.


(But I couldn't have done it with out every single person who helped in their own way).

Dread [Sun, Oct 31, 2010 @ 7:45pm]
is pretty much the only word to describe what I feel right now.

Horrible heart-flutting dread.

Ok so I admit I had a good time last night and certain drugs seemed like a good idea at the time.
Now on the other side with little sleep and a comedown added to an already quiet anxious person doesn't make for good.

...And I have to catch a 9:20 flight to Spain tomorrow for work, from bloody Stansted.



I just want to curl into a ball and have someone stroke my hair... But there's no one here and I have got to much to do.

A day in the life of a Tech Support/system builder. [Fri, Oct 22, 2010 @ 3:54pm]
First item of everyday, emails! There's always plenty of time to waste reading/answering/looking at ones you already have read with emails! Especially considering my current project in the company involves me contacting loads of Chinese cable manufacturers. This in it self is a good source of early morning fun (hurrah for language barriers!), with such classics as "We look forward the chance to delight you!".

Next up its the online part hunt! This game is for 1 or more players and is of detective/research/head-on-desk-banging style. This involves trying to find any given mechanical part that you already have but have no idea where they were ordered from, what the part number is and what company might even stock them. Normally the process goes like this:

-Stare at part looking for anything like a number or a manufacture name, try to read that incredibly small print you noticed in the corner until your eyes hurt.
-Find out what manufacture makes it eventually.
-Search the millions of component online stores hoping that one that ticks all the "In stock", "Cheapest", "In your country" and "not a scam" boxes.
-Find part of a site, and hey, the picture even looks like the part you are holding! (Now we're getting somewhere)
-Suddenly notice that there are 50+ versions of your part with the same picture but one tiny figure difference in the technical details box at the bottom of every page.
-Curse/hit head on desk/go make tea for everyone else in the office just to get away from the computer/check facebook
-Check manufactures website to see if that will help
-Find part of manufactures website, looks pretty exact, and seems to say there are only 2-4 options with actually are any use to you anyway.
-Read incredibly over detailed manufactures PDF on how these 2-4 parts are VASTLY different to them (though to everyone else in the real world are all exactly the same).
-Narrow it down to the part and get the manufactures part number
-Go back to the component store and search for that number
-Found it! Ordered it and spent a stupid amount on the part after P&P is included (but hey, it's not your money right?) and pray to whatever god you believe in that it actually IS the part you need...
-Pass Go! collect 200

Now its lunch time (yay!), time to go spend some of that hard earned cash on an overpriced Sandwich that will: -Fill you up -Tastes good -Cost less than £7 (select 2).
Lunch time is also a chance to look at some stupid youtube videos or read a blog or website you've been meaning to read. It is NOT a chance to go on facebook, this must only be done sneakily during the day when you can't think of anything else to do but don't want to ask anyone if there is anything you can help them with.

To be continued...

Songs from memory [Tue, Sep 7, 2010 @ 12:16pm]
Songs will always remind me of a time, place or situation, but there are a few that stick out.

Indigo - Moloko:
Driving in my little 206 with Hannah and Hazel. We had decided to head down to Brighton for the day. It was a pretty hot day and Hannah had put on Moloko's 'Things to make and do' album as the car had a CD player. I think we were getting pretty close to Brighton when this song came on. I remember tree's, the motorway and looking for a Park and Ride. It was a lovely day, went spent it in the lanes and then on the beach (even though it wasn't that hot actually on the beach).



I'm going to keep adding to this as I remember things (they come sporadically to me).

Writer's Block: Let me at em' [Fri, Aug 20, 2010 @ 6:36pm]
What is the bravest thing you've ever done? Would you do it again?

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow"

I feel like the bravest thing I have done is to carry on.
