I am very aware of how important it is to have a clear mind, staying positive and all that jazz.

Nothing serious, but sometimes I suffer a bit of self doubt, worry a bit more than is necessary. I am conscious of it, so sometimes I turn to Youtube or similar for a bit of inspiration.

What really gets on my wick are those motivational videos, or those facebook memes where people feel the need to emphasise their determination by riddling the message with expletives. Really irritating and unnecessary.

'Clear the air' chats.

My flatmate has just come into to my room, drunk, to clear the air because he thinks I don't like him. Which I don't. So what?

Why not just accept that we don't get on and leave it at that?

People, man.

With a name like Chinners there really was only one option. You should have chinned him, just to let him know the exact depth of how much you hate him.

Followed by making your piss on him, to assert your dominance even further.

Why live in a flat with someone you don't like? How did you end up in that situation?

Fair point.

London house sharing is a complicated beast. The rent is cheaper than it should be on this place so I felt I had to compromise. I didn't dislike him to start with, but then I got to know him better.

I got one of those as well, at least I managed to change my flights to a few days earlier for no extra charge.
Looks like I'll be spending a little longer in Blighty this time.

Well what can I say about my 2-3 hours before I got home from football. Ended up in the Hamilton Hall at Liverpool Street got a beer with a few friends. Ended up chatting with some Chelsea supporters. My friends went off for their trains and I ended up chatting with the Chelsea boys alone.

It was all going well, was finishing up my beer about to make a move to Fenchurch Street. Out of nowhere a bloke I weren’t even talking to shouts “D’you just call me a Spurs?!”

I said no, because I hadn’t. He kept asking more and more then was right against the table between us. “What are you a Spurs then?” He asks. “Nah I’m West Ham been chatting with your mates for a while now”. “No you’re a Spurs”

The people around him calm him down, I swiftly see off my pint and take the glass. Quick trot around Tesco to get a few drinks and ballast if worst comes to worst. Start making my way to fenchurch and see some people kinda following me so I walk through the side roads and alleys. Get to fenchurch Street, my worries are over life is good once again. Until...

Went for a piss in the train toilets, all as it should be then push the flush button. Next thing I know, the pits of hell have erupted in this confined space. I try opening the door, no luck. I try knocking on the door, no luck. I start banging the f*** out the door, no luck still. The smell is overwhelming now, I didn’t want but I ended up pressing the button that gets you in touch with the driver or a member of staff. Yeah, didn’t really work that way. I’m now having a bit of a panic attack. I am not in a good place. I have one last option to try and pull the door open. Floor is now filling with what appears to be someone’s vomit. I pull on the door hard as I can.

Then there goes my footing, I’m slipping arse over tit. Grabbing way anything to stay off the deck, in my desperate struggle I’ve damn near knocked myself out on the door controls. Someone hears the commotion and finally opens the door. That was an error on their part. Had to get a lift from my old man at the next station. Stripping off near bollock naked in a station car park with a possible concussion, yeah how was your Saturday?!
