Well I didn’t think this would happen…

My girlfriend just dumped me, an hour ago.

There would be nothing more I would like to do right now than go straight to the Downunder Bar and write myself off on tequila shots with someone that can hardly speak any English. But I can’t, so I type.

It’s a strange place, having to sit in your own emotions.

As a sort of strange and angry compromise as I drove home screaming the Rolling Stones ‘You can’t always get what you want’ in a way that reminds me of Leonardo Dicaprio in Romeo & Juliet, when he goes nuts in the car scene. 

I guess the take home lesson here is that I definitely look to alcohol to disengage from my emotions if they are too hard to handle. I think that a lot of stuff which I haven’t dealt with and buried under all those times I have written myself off may rear their ugly head this year… look out.

 

pimp music and gym training is my outlet and alternative to boozing when something gets me down, i’m glad u were able to find some solace typing and u fought the temptation to drink bro, very admirable
