In da see... at NOOKEEE

I like this picture, not because it is particularly flattering, but because it somehow is all the good bits of a great week smushed up in to one image. And that moment of falling, towards the blue blue sea...(even if it was freezing!) with one of my best friends is what I hope to remember this summer for.

It always amazes me how much switching around two letters changes a word

Yesterday, I tried to write the word gorgeous... but reversed the g and r a midway.

This gave me, grogeous, which rather than sounding beautiful, pleasant warm and all the other good connotations, sounds sleazy and cheap, like grotty, grotesque and bogus.

I know this is hardly a linguistic anomale, but it made me consider, if a wrongly chosen letter can change the meaning of a word, and therefore the meaning of a sentence, imagine what a profound impact a wrongly chosen word could have on a sentence, or even as I've experienced it, on a relationship, and therefore, on your life.

I'm learning this lesson, but for now, I'm resolving to appreciate words more, and to use them with the same care I take with much less important, material things.

Ginger Rogers and Michael Buble!

I've had a fairly low few days, due to things friendship wise not going too well, but a greater power (at the moment I'm not sure what it may be) sent me a subtle reminder.

Well maybe not a greater power, just my computer and chance I guess. I was in my room cleaning, not really doing much, and I put my music library on shuffle. After the normal muddle of jazz/pop-punk/ and dance music, two songs came on back to back.

The first was "Pick Yourself Up" from Swing Time, my all time favourite musical and a lovely recording from the gorgeous Ginger.

"Work like a soul inspired, til the battle of the day is won" she sings, and I thought to myself, sound advice, now take it! My usual self is mostly sunshine and rainbows, I'm one of the least depressive people in the world, so allowing myself more than one blue day was unusual.

Then Just to drive the message home, Michael Buble's "Feeling Good" came on. Now while I was far from feeling good" the line "It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life" struck me as very true.

Whatever happens this summer, and however little I planned for this, Uni is a new start, and each day I waste moping coupld be one full of suprises and joyful moments.

So I picked myself, dusted myself of, and I'm preparing to start all over again.

So I promised...

That this wouldn't be a depressive blog - and it wont.

But I have one thing that has to get off my chest. If you make a mistake, a big one, partially your fault and partially bad sodding luck, how can you make it right.

It seems you can't, or not in the eyes of some people. If a heartfelt apology isnt enough then maybe you have to reevaluate a friend.

Who knows...I've done my part, if its meant, then I guess I'll sever ties, I can move on in a couple months anyway. I guess I just never considered an era ending like this, I kinda expected more.

For me....results were important and life changing, I wish I could have shared it with them.

Thats all the moody for now
