20Something and Surviving

thats better…

Okay. I’ve had my coffee and I’m feeling considerably better. I still feel like crap coz I’m off coffee and chocolate but that’s another story.

I want to go home. I need to go home. But its only Thursday and I have way too much to do. Will persevere, push forward.

Went to this dinner function last night and it was quite nice. Held at a game reserve to the North of KZN the beauty of this province continues to amaze me. Despite my best efforts I was well behaved and did not do something I now I will regret later. I’m learning about rebounds. Usually I’m pretty smart but when it comes to relationships I can be petty slow.

We actually saw some animals on the way there. My friends in the state are still surprised when I get excited to see wild animals. They think I have a lion in my backyard. I don’t argue with them. The first time I saw a proper animal was when I was nine and My mom took us to the Circus. Those animals smelled and even back then I was glad to be a city Kid. We also had the usual cows, horses and chickens on the family farm but it didn’t compare to seeing Giraffes and Elephants.

So the dinner was great and I managed to sneak away into the bar on the reserve where all the men had gathered around the plasma watching Fergie’s boys get by, by the skin of their teeth. I’m a Liverpool fan and I’ve endured constant harassment by friends and colleagues alike since Liverpool early exit from both leagues.

My disappointment did not however stop me from celebrating with the guys and we had an assortment of different red drinks thingies, which created a nice buzz. However G is not talking to me as her I ditched her somewhere along the way. I knew she’d be happy with her fav Merlot and plenty of eye candy. I thought wrong. Got a text from her and dreading seeing her later.

Anyway I think I may have a solution of leaving early today. We are hearing rumours of xenophobic riots coming to town. We need to leave early to ensure our safety. Yes, that’s it.
