I used to meet a lot of people in pubs. Being a recovering alcoholic in Australia is seriously isolating sometimes.
Is it just me? Or is it way harder to meet people as one gets older. Do people just already have enough friends? I don't even know how to approach people. I know I need to be places where people are, doing things that people do, then maybe we end up doing the thing together. It's proving harder in practice though. I want to meet a partner. Where does that happen? It used to just happen for me naturally. What's the deal? Do people use online dating? Is that how it works these days? Wtf life.
I now live in another house. This is the 29th house I've lived in. It's weird and empty. I made caramel slice to celebrate. I'm possibly having a minor nervous breakdown. This is what people do isn't it? Live in a place... Do a thing etc? I hope the local takeaway made my food Thai hot. They always make it Aussie hot. Everything is going to be okay.
I achieved tea. Chamomile, elderflower and hibiscus. I'm still crap at guitar, but I believe I may have at least partially staved off existential crisis.
I fell into her completely, like a deep chasm filled with soft light. We held hands under the water. Her smile broke me. It would never work out, she's too self centred. I would never dream of holding her back. I told her she was beautiful. She looked as if she was going to cry and hugged me for a long time. She's far away now. I don't know if I'll see her again. I hope I see her again. Fuck. This one hurts. Fuck.
I love Jack Russell Terriers. I love all of the dogs. Dog is love.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
