Stuff.

Other things: I tried a new route into work this morning, from Rolfe Street station in Smethwick, as my mum works quite close to it. The plan was to change at Galton Bridge and then go to Jewellery Quarter, but I'd just missed the 7.43 train to Wolverhampton (hence Galton Bridge) and the next one wasn't until 8.13. Stupid out-of-the-way stations. But the next one to Birmingham New Street was at 7.54, so I got that one. it should've arrived at BNS at 8.00 on the dot, but was delayed for 15 minutes by the train in front getting its arse stuck in the tunnel.

So, a few glitches to iron out, but otherwise a much easier journey...

I also have a new MP3-player playlist after ripping new stuff last night, so it now includes the following:

~ Green Day's American Idiot
~ KT Tunstall's Eye to the Telescope
~ Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway
~ Gary Jules' Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets
~ Cerys Matthews' Cockahoop
~ songs from The Dreamstone
~ songs from The Last Unicorn

Basically all of my new stuff. My form of randomisation is to play it all in alphanumeric order, which has the unfortunate effect of putting three Kelly Clarkson songs in a row. Never mind, it's all good.

That's about all I have to mention. Except that roast chicken sandwiches are the ultimate in comfort food.

Actual Entry:
It's quite strange, the way bad news can make everything seem so melancholy.  I am worried for a couple of friends right now.  Mutual LJ friends will know who I'm talking about, I'm sure.  I always try to be a good friend, or at least always want to be, and one of the most frustrating things in the universe is not being able to do anything to help.  I hate that horrible things happen to people who deserve better.

I feel like I'm drifting away from the people I love.  I don't know whose fault that is.  Mine, for not staying in contact.  AOL's, for not allowing me to stay in contact.  Life's, for shutting off my major brain functions to such a degree that I couldn't cope with anything.  Theirs, perhaps.  Who knows?  But either way, it's like being oddly isolated in a bubble of not-knowing.  I don't know them; they don't know me.  All I can do is try and update on what's going on in my life, whether they're listening or not.

I really wanted this year to be better... part of me still has hope that that'll be the case, but it's hard to keep believing when all that happens is bad.
