It is a well known fact I’m a complainer. You know when they say you should look on the bright side of things? I rarely do. I worry and fret and stress about pretty much everything and anything. Anyway, it was becoming a little bit ridiculous and I came to the realisation that I was totally wasting my life being miserable.
I came across an article “60 Small Ways to Improve Your Life in 100 Days” and one of the instructions was to stop complaining! “Negative talk produces negative thoughts; negative thoughts produce negative results”.
In light of this, I thought I would start the month on a positive spin and think about the things that I have to look forward to this month 🙂
1. Starting my 3rd year of University
This has nothing to do with the student loan. (Honest). I remember having the wobbles just before I started my course at uni. After a mad rush to get all my end of year assignments in for college, I was completely and utterly sure about the fact that i never wanted to see another assignment again. And the thought of having another 3 years of study was just completely awful! However, I knew I wouldn’t want to stay in the job I was in at the time forever, so after a month or two off, I decided that going to university was definitely the sensible option. And here I am, at the start of the final year!
2. Alfies 7th Birthday!
My baby is 7 this month! I found a stack of photos on a memory stick last week and it really hit me how fast he’s growing up.
3. Subdue’s Twisted Circus!
4. Autumn nights.
One of my favourite things about September and the autumn, is that lots of new programmes start. X Factor (judge away, I like its cheesiness) I love filling up the sky plus and getting into nice pyjamas and bed socks and mooching around the house.
5. Outdoor Party
Ray has a gig at a little outdoor party in the fells this month. There’s some brilliant local acts playing and it will be a lovely, friendly atmosphere. I can’t wait!
6. New Arctic Monkeys Album
I’m going to be honest, when the Arctic Monkeys first came on the scene, I wasn’t a fan. I was working in a Virgin Megastore at the time and we used to have to listen to the corporate station VMR, all day. When something was number one, they pretty much played it every hour. I worked full time. I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor was number one for an exceptionally long time. (Or so it felt like!!) However, credit where credit is due The Arctic Monkeys have made some absolutely incredible music and I’ve loved the songs that have been played so far from this new album.
7. Frankie Diary
Having seen the Frankie diary on a few other blogs I have decided that my life will be a miserable existence without one and therefore I must do everything I can in my power to possess one. They have just gone on pre-order and September is the month I will finally have the money for one. Super excited!
So there we have it! The things that will be making me happy in September. (A few of them anyway, Ray has just made me the most monstrous hot chocolate I have ever seen!!)
Back soon 🙂
