What you should know about my world today PLUS a brilliant video!

16 August 2013

There are a few things you should know about my world today:

1. I am RIDICULOUSLY emotional. Thanks hormones.

2. I have cried THREE times today, and it's not even 3pm. Way to go Nicola.
I cried first when the bus driver was mean to me because my oyster card wouldn't work so I had to walk to work in the pouring rain. Without an umbrella.
I then cried again half an hour later when the guy at the ticket office told me that my oyster wasn't working because the machine had updated my card from last Friday and not on Monday like I had requested it to which meant I was completely out of money. This would have been okay if I had my purse on me to top up said fucking card. Which of course on a day like this I hadn't.
The most recent bout of tears came when I was on the phone to Ben after my physio appointment and I was snappy and emotional about some of my health problems and couldn't get a hold of myself.

3. I'm bored. Like SERIOUSLY bored. And have been ALL WEEK. Work has been so quiet this week that I can literally feel my brain cells slipping away from me.

4. I miss my family.

But you know what? Shit stuff happens. Real life happens. And it's only what I make of it that matters, I can only control how I respond to it all. And if I want to respond with tears then that's how I will respond. I'm gonna chalk today up as one of those "taught me a few lessons days" and move on.

Plus, after watching this I'm starting to feel a whole lot better about everything....
Happy Friday!!


  1. Aww Nicola, everyone has bad day (especially if has to deal with TFL!!!). Sending hugs! XOXO

  2. I love Napolean Dynamite too much. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body. I don't cry much, but sometimes a good cry is necessary. And just what is needed. I'm sure tomorrow will be a better day (and I absolutely hate it when bus drivers are mean!!) cheer up buttercup x

  3. Napoleon can cheer up anyone's not good, rotten day. I'm sorry it's been so crappy today. But it can only go up from here, right? Such a mom comment.

  4. I feel your pain lady. And will be a blubbering mess right with you. I currently have a heating pad on my back and have also shed a few ridiculous tears, like when I watched an episode of How I Met Your Mother and the last five minutes of Titanic... Just know you're not alone! xox :)

  5. Some days you just need to cry it out. I had a day like that last week. At least hormones will pass! Hope you feel better.

    I used to have the whole Napoleon Dynamite dance memorized. I even did part of it in an audition. It's still my go-to video when I'm having a bad day :)

  6. When you need to cry, let it out then let it go. Holding it in is so bad for your self care. Do some breathing exercises and let yourself be at peace with the universe. Know that there will be brighter times ahead and if that all fails, put on some loud music, dance like a crazy woman and sing at the top of your voice ;) x

  7. I'm sorry things are kinda crappy. Sometimes a good cry is so needed though. Wailing away and just pouring everything out is (in my opinion) the BEST therapy..and its free too ;)

    I'm sending positive vibes your way girl! ♥

  8. I can get quite emotional as well, it really annoys me! I generally bite it down though, cuz most of the time it is just being too sensitive and tears would be uncalled for! annoys me so much when I feel them coming.
