Looking forward (a little)

3 days off after a tough week mentally and sometimes physically for me. I am gonna make the most of this time to try to get my head as straight as possible. Overall, despite of my low mood and dark thoughts, I think I coped pretty well. Others may disagree with that though! I tried my best to get through though. Going to a quiz with Matthew and Annemarie was awesome too. We didn’t get into the top three (think we landed 4th) but there were quite a few teams there. I don’t think we did badly at all. Either way we always have a great time with plenty of laughs along the way. Maybe someday we will win. Who knows? We’ve been 2nd twice so I believe we can do it. You gotta believe right?

In other news, I’ve been reliving my days playing GoldenEye on the N64.  …

Back on the virtual saddle

One good thing to come out of my virtual immobilisation – getting back into Warcraft.  It has been so long that everything feels (mostly) fresh.  I forgot how much I loved the story of it all.  I think Blizzard have stepped it up a notch with this expansion.  The intro quests alone feel epic.  It is good to be back. My chest is still hurting.  Sometimes I forget about it then get up too quick and boom there it is!  Having said that the weekend seems to have gone slowly for once.  Not that I am complaining but it does feel kind of eerie.  Perhaps it is not sleeping that heavily (except for when I’ve had some pain killers.)  I’ve always been a night owl so around 5 hours max is usually good for me.  Unless it is the weekend and sometimes I make up for it!  Not much chance …
