Poetry

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

I just spent over 2 hours playing never-ending story with poetry videos on youtube. 'How to love your introvert' is my particular favourite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bfh_

Why could we not study poetry like this at high school? I have spent 10 years of my life thinking I hated it!

Try new things people; you might just find something worth spending 2 hours of your time on.

  


New friends

Monday, June 09, 2014

So I went to the party last night. It was a fairly civilised 'food party' where everyone took something edible and then we all sat down at the table and ate together. And then we ended up singing along to Disney songs, I taught some black guys how to dance azonto, and oh yeah, I accidentally made friends with the ex's new girlfriend.

For the record, I feel the need to point out that I'm not the crazy "YOU CAN'T HAVE HIM!!" ex. She and I were not friends first of all because I didn't even know her name, we've had that little interaction. But also because I imagine the fact that I have nothing civil to say to her boyfriend would probably be quite a large sticking point.

SO I was heading downstairs to buy some more drinks for the party and I passed someone sitting on the stairs, and she just happened to do that hiccupy crying thing as I walked past. It is a knee-jerk reaction, ingrained in my very soul, that when you see someone crying you comfort them in any way possible. So I had already turned back and said "hey, are you okay?" before it registered who I was talking to. And it was only when I got home hours later it occurred to me I may have been the absolute last person she wanted to see her cry.

But the other thing that is bred into me is manners; You don't just walk away from someone once you've acknowledged them. So I sat on the stairs next to her and gave her a hug, and said every single silly thing that popped into my head in an attempt to make her laugh. And it worked! After a few minutes someone came out of another flat with a bike so we had to get out the way, and we just got up and went up to the party like nothing had happened. Her red puffiness clears up hella faster than mine does so nobody even realised anything was wrong, and she was laughing and singing along with the rest of us.

I'm really glad I stopped what I was doing and finally learned her name.

I am feeling very down today. It's probably just because I'm so tired after travelling to mum and dad's and back again, but that doesn't stop me feeling it.
One of my friends is having a party tonight and I don't really want to go, but there's a part of me that is terrified of being left out. It jabs me when people go "do you remember when...?" and I have to say "no, I wasn't there". I don't want to go but I don't want to be left out, and I really don't know what I will do.

    Work on saying yes even when you want to say no. You will most likely have a good time if you go and will be glad you went. I'm having to tell myself that lots of times and I usually don't regret it.

    Plan on going for just a short while. If you are having a great time, you might stay longer but if you don't go you will feel bad. Go and feel good.

90

Saturday, June 07, 2014

This weekend I'm down at my mum and dad's because today is my great Aunty's 90th birthday. She is, without a doubt, my biggest idol. If I turn out even half like my Aunty Betty then I will be happy.

First of all, SHE'S 90!! I'm past the point where that seems unfathomably ancient, but old enough to know that it's an impressive age to reach. Not everybody makes it that far.

Then there's the fact that she is fiercely independent, practical and capable. Once, my Dad went round to drop something off and found Aunty Betty just coming down off the roof of her house. When dad asked what she was doing, she said "the wind knocked my television aerial over, so I just put it back up again". This was less than 10 years ago. My 80odd-year old great Aunty climbed two storeys to fix her own aerial. That's how amazing I want to be.

She has a wickedly sharp sense of humour, and picks up on my sarcasm far quicker than some people half her age. But she is also lovely and kind, and I'm not the only person who thinks that; so many cards have arrived for her birthday that there actually aren't enough flat surfaces in her living room to display them all. When I call her or go for a visit she always asks about my life and remembers all the different things I do. She has that knack some people have, of making you feel like you really matter.

So when I grow up I want to be just like my great Aunty Betty, or as close as I can possibly get.
