A week in the life of me #5

So my week has been totally different. I had to let go of a negative force in my life, it was hard, but the right desicion and I feel good now, well, getting there. It never is easy letting go, but you have to understand the reasons why you have done it in the end.

Coming back to work killed me after time off! Had a stuffy nose for days. I took some allergy tablet’s and I can see why I don’t take them! I had little Tantrum’s after taking them when I was hoovering up.

I always do seem to have little outbursts (not nasty ones) when I have took tablets.
 It’s a real shame for people who have to have them on  regular basis. I wouldn’t be myself, no wonder the world is looking back to natural remedies.

So my wife has got the dreaded cold now! My son is back at school and now I have a rabbit that were looking after, who shits all over the living room! Life is just peachy. Having said that, she is a beautiful rabbit! It’s amazing how such a survival based animal can be so social. She will sit on the sofa and be stroked like a dog! 

I had a walkthrough my hometown today, it inspired me to write a song for my next album about growing up there.

I’m going to me mum and Dads for the weekend, as I’ve said before their just like friends. They owe me nothing, but still seem to want to give, I can relate as a parent but I just wish I could give them more after raising me up the way the have! My mum loves my determination for becoming a musician and counsellor, she supports me 110% I remember her hearing Leeds festival, saying : James will be playing there one day! I’m never giving up on my passions, I never have never will.

I really was in a place of relaxation at the beginning if the week, and had great balance, I seem to have fallen off track a litlle bit but getting myself organised again. Everything works better with a plan, even simple things like pre-ready answers for your boss etc. 

I’m getting ready for my counselling course and annoying all my followers with it! Lol. I had a chance at getting a job close to home as a mental health assistant, I could really do with it to help me progress, but the money and hours don’t fit. I have to think about my family first too. I guess it will all come in due time, and I can have a job that I am passionate about. 

Thanks for reading. My latest e.p. is here:

Need your advice on being a Counselling & Psychology student. 

I am due to start my first year on a level 2 counselling course. I am super excited about it.

I feel I’ve finally found something i am really passionate about but i also know their will be obstacles along the way. 

What am i going to expect? Shall i just go with the flow? What should I be prepared for? I have read tons on psychology this past couple of months. The main reason being is that i love psychology anyway, but also to help me get an insight. 

I’m just wondering if anyone out there can give me a heads up on all of this? What do i learn in general on my first year? Can I get a job (even part time) after two/three years of courses? I know at first it’s volunteering, What’s it like? I can’t wait to start. I’m in UK for preference. 

Thanks, James.

A week in the life of me #4

Morning, afternoon and evening, taking in to account bloggers all around the world. So no real challenges this week pretty plain sailing! Holiday from work has been tip top, get to put all my focus on my family and passions like washing up, ha-ha. 

Have to say I’m getting used to watching everybody loves Raymond (in my pj’s) followed by fraiser. I know they are old but as a kid I didn’t understand why people found it funny. 

As far as games go, I wanted to find a game I could play on my mobile. I have given up! Even when you find something you like, you have to chuck cash at it, Il stick to Mario kart, it’s epic! 

Exciting times are Ahead of me now. I have a lot to contend with the rest of this year but I’m am relishing new challenges. It’s really good to have new things to look forward to, even if they might not seem that big, it’s therapeutic (for me) to know somethings around the corner. I really advise you to take at least two weeks off together once a year if you can, just to recharge, it’s worked wonders for me. 

I’m watching a new series called ‘Quacks’ it is England in the 1840s when doctors were kinda celebrity’s as medicine it famous milestones. It is great and Really over exaggerated comedy! Right up my street! Worth a watch! I also have done some more comedy video filming with my son! He is a natural at music videos now!

I wish you all a great week, until next time, peace.

A Week In The Life Of Me #2

So guys, I guess Thursday is now the official home of ‘A week in the life of me’. 

The weekend just gone I did some videoing with my son for one of my tracks called ‘Turn that music down’. We were messing around and he really loved the being the director, especially when I wore some of my wife’s clothes! Shhh! Don’t tell the Internet or anything! 

(Not me I prefer the tiger suit) 

Oh, by the way I passed my maths exam. Blood, sweat and tears but got there in the end, looking forward to my counselling course now, but going to enjoy the rest of summer first!

 I have struggled with sleeping this week, so much pressure of an early night can send you the other way, well, that’s what I have learnt, as of late. I have got two weeks off work starting next week. It has made my week so hard knowing that. I know it is all in your head but I can’t help thinking about it!! 

This morning was cold before going to work, I loved it, being tired, you can’t beat it. Sorry I’ll stop bieng sarcastic now.  No, i mean the cold, It gives you a taster of the winter months, and it is kind of refreshing,  taking your mind to a different season, very therapeutic!
It’s like when I came out of work today, after a day and night of rain, there it was, glorious sunshine. The weather making us appreciate it, just feels so much better after the rain!

Wierd energy today, Thursday’s are rubbish at work. Every one was swinging around chandeliers near enough today. 

One more day to go till my holiday off work, have you guys got any time off work in the summer? Anything that stood out this week for you? Let me know in the comments!
