Not again

So i am single again. I know dear readers you cannot believe it. Based on my track record you never saw it coming.

It wasn't anything that went wrong, it just wasn't easy. It should be easy and it should be fun. It shouldn't be worry and fret.

I guess the distance played a factor it is never easy trying to fix the hiccups when you don't see each other. This person will always hold a dear place in my heart. They inspired me to do things I never thought I would.

On another note blue eyes is getting married. Now that was a bit of a shock. I wish him all the love, luck and happiness in the world. I really hope it all works out perfect for him. And that is the honest truth.

Not sure what will happen in my life now but I know I have the most super friends on the planet and they need to get massive high 5s. Thanks for Friday ladies I needed it. Fingers crossed for Saturday.

Got a lot going on in the next few weeks; Christmas, new year, my 30th, starting my degree so I have a lot to focus on. No dwelling on the past anymore. Time to be happy.

Here's to dinosaurs and seahorses.

And speaking of seahorses thank you Scott Owen for my most perfect Christmas present ever. I love him.

What is love?

Of the five theories in this article in the Comment is Free section of the Guardian I think the most accurate is by Catherine Wybourne a Benedictine nun. Maybe not the loving God above all things but the rest rings true.

"Love is more easily experienced than defined. As a theological virtue, by which we love God above all things and our neighbours as ourselves for his sake, it seems remote until we encounter it enfleshed, so to say, in the life of another – in acts of kindness, generosity and self-sacrifice. Love's the one thing that can never hurt anyone, although it may cost dearly. The paradox of love is that it is supremely free yet attaches us with bonds stronger than death. It cannot be bought or sold; there is nothing it cannot face; love is life's greatest blessing."

You bastard bloody bitches

I would like to point out for the sake of the strops that I can see happening from the following that my blog is my life. Names are never mentioned. If you choose to reveal your identity then that is up to you. Also don't assume I am writing about you, ever heard that song by Carly Simon? Google it but then you're so vain you probably think this blog is about you (giggle)

Well this post is not about you, or you, or in fact any of you. It is a generalisation.

I imagine most of my readers are around my age. But even if you are younger and especially if you are older, pay attention.

Time to start facing up to your annoyances in life. The following are no longer allowed as way of venting your tensions:
Cryptic Facebook status / posts
Crytic tweets
Talking with others about you issue, but not confronting the cause.

If you have an issue with me / my writing / my being on suicide girls or in fact anyone else, tell them. Don't be rude, just tell them. If you don't feel comfortable doing it face to face maybe send an email or text but do remember the meaning can easily be misconstrued without a tone of voice behind it.

The way of conducting oneself is to no longer be bitches (men and women) you'll find it makes life so much easier. I have tried it on 2 occasions this week and the results have been delightful.

Student loans and predicting the future

I am so excited to say that finally at the age of 29 and 11 months I am starting my degree.
My student loan is sorted and my first module is picked - Astronomy. I start in February 2013 (when I will be 30 and 1 month), so expect me to become more of a hermit than I already am.

Science bit, skip if you like:
This course considers the structure, origin and evolution of stars, galaxies and the universe as a whole, asking questions such as: How are stars born, and what happens when they die? How do galaxies form, and how do we know that the universe began in a ‘big bang’? This introduction to astronomy investigates the stars and their life cycles, galaxies and quasars, and the origin and evolution of the universe - and how it might continue to evolve in the future. and how it might continue to evolve in the future.

Firstly I would like to point out I am studying Astronomy and not Astrology. After a hard conversation last night about me starting my studies which included the sentence "why do you need a degree?" (the answer is because I want one) the following happened:

Me: I am doing my degree in astronomy
Other Person: Does that mean you can do my horoscope and stuff
Me: That's astrology
OP: oh its all the same stars and stuff

I did giggle a lot. Astrology is not a science. I don't care what moon you were born under and if Jupiter was rising in Capricorn. Mystic meg, Russell Grant and all them other liars cannot predict your future based on the time of your you were born.

My second point here is, why astronomy? A lot of people have asked that and looked at me strangely when I told them my future plans. If you ask this question I will give you an answer "Because it interests me". This answer is not up for discussion. That's the answer. I am not too worried about my future career plans. I am basically just winging it. And hopefully soon I will be winging it in an educated manner.

I think in conclusion what I am trying to say is: It's 37 days till my 30th birthday and I have finally figured out what I want to do with my life. If you would like to buy me presents try Stack Ring co, Lola and Grace or just buy me a pretty tattoo (I pick the artist).
