My weekend

Well now, I’ve had a pretty shithouse weekend, how about you?

Actually judging from the news, the world hasn’t gone too well this weekend. It’s been a shocking few days. On Friday there was the Waterfall train crash near Sydney, which left eight people dead. This morning I woke up to find the space shuttle Columbia had disintegrated while landing. To which I believe my initial reaction may have been: "Fuck!"

Meanwhile, in my world… well for a start on Saturday I was woken at 6:20am by neighbour’s SMS arriving. Grrr. Bloody technology.

And this afternoon I broke up with my girlfriend of almost a year, C. I’m not going to go into any detail about it, suffice to say that I think it’s fair to say that it’s nobody’s fault in particular. And that this is something that has been brewing for several weeks now, so I’m glad it’s been resolved, as the stress was really getting to me.
