Hopeful October...

Autumn is my favourite season. The night folding in on the day, the smell in the air, the beautiful colour of the trees; all of this brings me a nice feeling.

It's not been the greatest summer really. Not having the warmest weather meant I didn't get out as much as I'd like. Work has been a bit mental, and burying Uncle Terry wasn't that pleasant.

However, good things have come from this that I'm hoping will lead to a slightly nicer future. Work for instance, has been mental, however I've got all the computers working brilliantly so far, and I'm hoping that I don't have to worry about them this year. Also, my friend Elin (who I like, but shhh she has a boyfriend) and I are getting quite close, which makes me happy (More about her another time). Financially, I've nearly paid off my car and my credit card and my graduate loan. About another 12 months and I should be debt free for the first time since 2001 when I went to Uni.

I'm hoping to organise a trip to visit my cousing in Northern Ireland with my Aunt Claire, as every time we all meet up seems to be due to a death, so it will be nice visiting them.

I turn 30 next year, so I think I have a few things I want to do before then. I've started my Judo course - it's awesome! And I think I'm feeling better because of it (something to do on Monday nights is a nice thing). I'm really wanting to do my CBT and then my motorbike license as it's something I've always wanted to do, and I think if I can do it before my 30th, that'll be good. Also, that leads me to my last plan, to live by myself again. I've had fun (and saved money!) living with people, but I'm getting a bit tired of it. Too many 'rules and politics' for my liking. I feel like I have to socialise all the time, and to be honest, I'm getting a bit tired of it. I'd rather be watching films, playing playstation and going out for a bike ride, but I feel I 'have' to socialise. We'll see, but if I get a motorbike license and a bike, I can commute from a bit further afield, which can see me getting a really nice house for a lot less rent. We will see, I'm sure I'll come back to this in the future.

Thanks for reading :o)
