This post now resembles nothing like it did ten minutes ago!! First of all, the words are different.

This is my fourth attempt at writing something about change but it keeps coming out wrong. It was supposed to be a good post about adapting to change and how hard it can be but it turned into me feeling sorry for myself which, if we were watching the Eurovision Song Contest would score me nil points (FYI I have just seen the best spelling for "nil points" on the internet... "Nil pwa" I give un point for imagination!!)

What was the point of this post? Oh yeah, change.

I'll come back to it, now is obviously not optimum post thinking time. Any suggestions on change are more than welcome!!

Thanks an' all, but...

Brain, I understand you're trying to help me by injecting more hormones into my body when I feel happy because you think the chemical balance is wrong but hey! Would you mind not doing that so much because now you've put me on an unjustified downer and that ain't no fun. I was enjoying that carefree feeling last week; I would understand if something negative had happened thus making me feel depressed but no, nada, nothing.

Don't forget you're in my skull therefore you belong to me and you should do what I say. I don't want to have to stage a strike ok, that's no good for anyone.

A Few of My Favourite Things

In no particular order...

[ Crisp and sunny Autumn mornings.

[ My boyfriend when he's being all cute and sleepy.

[ Dark chocolate.

[ My friend's little girl who has just learnt how to walk and has now started to climb up on their coffee table unaided... Uh oh!!

[ My cousin's little girl asking me to read to her...constantly... And accidentally calling me "Uncle" Jackie. The innocence of youth!

[ Yoga, especially brahmari breath and dharunasana though not necessarily together.

[ Unplanned days out to London markets with my boyfriend and his friends which turn out to be so much fun and etched in my memory forever.

[ My northern best friend's northern accent "Hiyyyaaaa, wot yooouuuu oop toooo?"

[ My southern best friend expecting a baby!

[ Moving to new places.

Sometimes it's important to stop and appreciate the things that make you happy. It's too easy to think about the things that don't.

It's the Little Things

Being new to blogging and not having any many followers, I get stupidly excited when I do get a comment from anyone someone.

To me, that means that a person has taken the time to read my simple and sometimes inane babble and has thought it worthy of a reply. Thank you! It seems such a silly thing (note: I accidentally typed 'suck' instead of 'such'... Freudian slip?!) but when I see the my comments have gone from "0 comments" (sad face) to "1 comment" (really happy face!), I genuinely cannot wait to see what's been said.

Reading someone's comment also leads to discovering new blogs which is what the blogging community is all about isn't it?

When I'm on another person's blog (The Bloggess/Hyperbole and a Half) I'm forever clicking on other people's blog links and 95% of the time, I'm pretty happy at what I find! It's good to know what's going on in other people's lives instead of focusing on your own stuff all the time. I can't think of another word for stuff. I've read a couple of blogs that make me sit up and take stock of my own life and think "wow I really don't have it that bad at all". Sometimes, it is all relative but we should always take the time to think about what others are going through and send good vibes out into the world.

Anyways, that's my 2 cents worth for the day. I'm going to get some water because I have had precisely 0 glasses of it today and I'm pretty thirthty.

Bye y'all!

p.s. I got the job. YAY!

Not Much Happenin'

Not much happenin' around here lately.

I'm still flat hunting with Louisa but not having much luck - the market is slow but there seem to be a lot of people looking for property at the moment! For those of you who have read Eat Pray Love, you know the part where she's on a book tour with her friend and she writes a letter to the universe asking for help finalising her divorce... Well, I did that. Yup. Except that I didn't ask for help with my divorce, mostly because I'm not even married, but I did ask for help with flat hunting. I was feeling a bit despondent about our bad luck with scammers and not being able to find a place so I asked the universe to present some opportunities to us and promised I wouldn't ignore them. And you know what? Aside from the fact that you shouldn't use "and" to start a sentence? The universe answered! It was bizarre actually, I wrote the letter then I found three properties online pretty much straight away and after ringing the letting agents, one of them had a great three bed place in Kilburn (which is awesome FYI) which we arranged to see that night. When I met up with Louisa to head to the viewing, I told her about the letter and she said she'd prayed for the same thing that morning for the first time in her life. So the universe totally heard our call! We didn't get the flat but that was down to the fact that the letting agent was a complete douchebag and kept lying to us. But I think that was the universe telling us a couple of things... 1) that there ARE properties out there, we just have to keep looking and b) watch out for dishonest letting agents. See universe, I am paying attention! We've seen a couple of other places which have been better than the ones previously so I'm confident we'll find somewhere soon. I'm looking forward to living in a flat with my own room instead of living out of a bag!

Woooaaaaahhhh, sorry I should have broken that paragraph up a bit.

On a positive note, I went for an interview on Monday morning and I've just had a call from the recruitment agency saying that I've been invited back for a second interview. Joy!!

My life seems to be full of agents right now...

Anywhoosle, that is literally it, my life is flat hunting and job hunting.

The End.
