Today was pretty relaxed I ended up going to gym with friends and trying to balance out talking and getting a decent work out, I think I did okay overall. After tea I watched some horror movie called XX which is four short movies and I didn’t mind it, wasn’t necessarily scary but it had some quirky moments.
Today was great I went and got a haircut in preparation for the trip next week hoping it’s at peak sexy length by the time I leave. Then I went to the movies to see Baby Driver which was everything I wanted it to be and more I loved it so much. I think it was a date with this girl but eh it was so rushed and stuff and I’m an awkward mess and I get such mixed signals so idk at least the movie was amazing. Feeling dejected I jumped at the chance to go to town and have drinks with my favourite boys and yeah I’m feeling good from chats and laughs with them.
Today I woke up in a bad mood but quickly got comfortable on the couch and watched Pineapple Express for the first time which cheered me up. After that I went to the gym for a bit but probably didn’t stay as long as I should have just because it was so crowded and I get anxious. When I got home there ended up being a blackout which sucked but it came back pretty quickly thank god, played Yahtzee in the meantime which was funny.
Today was dumb because the shift I agreed to cover yesterday was actually for Tuesday but my manager called me and made me go in and idk man. The friend that blew me off all last week apologized which is nice and I got my tickets to see baby driver this Saturday which I’m very keen for.
I woke up today feeling absolute trash to the point where I think I accidentally shaded my friends through text just because grumpy. The day took a positive turn when Emma invited me to the gym and we talked and I worked out as best as I could with a bad wrist and people watching. After that I watched the Omega v Okada 2 match which was sick and distracted me from homework nicely. Then I went on a date wow, well it was a date to me anyway, went with Emily to see a Wonder Woman and like to me it was a really good night but I guess to other people it might not be because I’m too awkward to really make a move lol but we still hit it off really well.
Watched another movie as I waited for work today, seeing as I had nothing better going on. This time it was Swiss Army Man with Paul Dano and Harry Potter and man I loved it, so zany and heartwarming lifted my spirits as well. Work was pretty quiet I think I’m more frustrated at my phone finally dying than I am at work for once. Thought I’d be really upset seeing as it’s my first Saturday home alone in a long time but I talked to mum and dad, listened to Boxer by The National and made another mix CD and all in all I’m feeling pretty ok. Sad. But manageable.
Today I was kinda depressed and as a result was pretty lazy, mostly playing Persona 5 and watching TV shows. To make up for this I managed to will myself into the gym, I’m not sure why I hate it so much but the thought of going is always far worse than actually going.
It’s 1am now and I just finished watching Paterson where Kylo Ren drives a bus for two hours and to be honest while it dragged I found it very endearing. Adam Driver’s character is composed and content and even when life takes an unfair turn he manages to pick himself up and get on with things. He reminds me of a lot of male figures I’ve had in my life, that my unstable ass can never hope to become. I like me though, doesn’t mean I can’t admire them either.
It’s just been a bad week, funny that bad week is what started me writing this hey? At least something came out of it I guess.
Today I woke up with the follow on from yesterday’s bad mood. I dropped off some of dad’s shit at Savers and ate lunch then by the time I made it home I kind of lightened up a bit. Helps that people who were being flaky yesterday decided to reply finally haHA (women). I went to the movies with old mate Brandyn to see Alien: Covenant and here’s my opinion:
Alien: Covenant is a step up from Ridley Scott’s last venture in the series Prometheus. While some of the elements that made Prometheus a bit overly wanky remained props to Michael Fassbender for holding the more obtuse themes together with an absolute stand-out performance. The intensity was there in parts though other parts felt entirely too comfortable. The crew was annoyingly dumb as well which led me to care less when they all met their maker. I think the real problem with these latest iterations of the series is that they seek to explain the Xenomorphs and how these situations came to be when what made the first two movies so uniquely scary was how little we knew about the creatures and the universe. Overall, not a bad Sci-Fi Thriller, but doesn’t touch it’s predecessors.
Besides that I watched a bunch of Misfits which I’m really liking and I’m feeling better than last night at least.
