Has My Fire Really Gone Out?

I just don’t know anymore. I’m supposed to be doing a travelogue project around the new football season and it’s going okay; not great, but okay. Several other projects are standing still and it seems like every little setback (real, or imagined) is a mortal blow, from which I cannot recover. Jesus, this is whiny. I had a nice evening out tonight with some good people (admittedly work colleagues) but now I feel… numb. I don’t get it, it’s like I lack that final layer of thick skin that regular human beings have. I’m down almost all of the time; despite having been chipper most of this week, there was this inevitability that I would swing back down again and it’s worse than it was before (name that song!). The cash machine swallowed my card before the meal and, though I didn’t panic (was in possession of just about enough cash to get through things), it set the tone and now I’m back where I was last week (note the lack of ‘blog entries, or any sort of output). Poverty has taken over until the 23rd (almost 3 weeks away) and I won’t be able to do the things I want to do. I suppose its an opportunity to knuckle down with my writing, but I feel like I’m walking in thick treacle. Nothing is easy and, when nothing gets done, I’ll feel like an even bigger failure. I’ve got all the faults of a Type-A Personality, without any of the drive, focus or motivation. Lucky me. On a personal level, the people I want to bring close to me are either pushed away, or reject me out of hand entirely, often for bizarre reasons. I can only tell myself (or The Legend can only tell me) so many times that it isn’t all my own fault. Told you this was whiny.

    It’s nothing three whores and a baloon full of nitrous oxide won’t mend.

    Now I’ve swung back down again, its worse than it was before…

    If I hadn’t seen such riches, I could live with being poor.

    I’ll name that song!
