New Year, new start. All over again I suppose. So many new starts that I forget which person I'm meant to be these days. The fit freak, the lover, the mummy, the good girl, the homemaker. Homewrecker. Which one shall I be this time? Time is passing so quickly, I look back at the ages of my life and wonder where the hell they've gone. So many years have passed since I was last with you. Were you real? Were you ever truly there or were you just a dream of my naive youth? Did I live that life before this one, or was that a different plane of existence altogether? Did I somehow move between dimensions on the day that we parted? Do you ever wonder where I am? I can't even remember your face now, not really. Pictures of you look familiar, like old film stars and sometimes I am there, but I can't bring your face to mind anymore. I have forgotten your voice, your touch. You have been removed from my life. Erased. A new start was needed. Again.
I had this dream once in the middle of the night when I was a kid on my way downstairs to take a piss because toilet upstairs was not hooked sittin there for looks i guess when we had company cause they'd think better of us if we had a toilet at least in place even though it didn't work but then they wouldn't know that unless they asked and they never would because it would be important enough question to ask about somebody else's toilet...anyway I had this dream...a guy greeted me by tipping his hat when I went into the toilet and he tipped his hat to me again when I came out. I didn't think much about it until years later when I was going into a real important place and the same guy in real life tipped his hat to me the exact same way. My life change that very second. Thanks God.
So while I'm standing on the bank of that muddy ol river this alligator comes flying out of the water and grabs me by the leg and starts trying to pull me into the water...well I gotta tell you if it weren't for Ned my chihuahua pulling hard the other direction at the same time and barkin too while he still holden the rope in his teeth, I'd a been a goner. I mean I aint got much of a leg left but then luck has it that I had two to start with anyway...and that's something you can't about your nose or another thing or two hanging off my body. Ned got a big steak that night by the way.
When Jess and girlfriend got big tattoos the same day together I have to admit I got real mad. Jess never did what I told him anyway and I been telling him, kid you get something like under your skin all over and 10 years down the road you commit a crime or something it's going make you a sitting duck. And as for Jenny having your name inked into her forehead. Whoa I didn't know anyone could really that dumb and still be eatin' as good as she does. Maybe it's because she is a vegan...her parents are vegans. even her do is a vegan. and now she's got this tattoo on her forehead. Hard to believe...She'll probably be runnin' for president soon every other nut is.
At school, we're writing our very own TED Talks about something we love. I'm doing 'The Value of Education' because I love school and learning. I'll include some of the speech here: Some people love school some hate it but we should appreciate our opportunity. Many around the world don't get the chance but we do. Everyone has different strengths-English, maths, art, PE included. Maybe only the nerds love school-they are obsessed with math and science, I'm included. Education is vital to become smart, intelligent. I believe everyone should have this opportunity to attend school. I'm running out of time to think but I don't care. I'm just writing about my passion...Time's Up!
