Going Gonzo – Hope’s Up.

Thursday, 1st August 2019. 06.47 I think I got past the first round of bills with a hundred pound to spare. Bonus. Well, maybe a little more but I bought the boys pizza last night.

Going Gonzo – Today’s Fuck It!

Thursday, 35th July 2019. 10.08 Yesterday’s depression has had a sleep and woken up with a “Fuck It” attitude. It doesn’t magic money out of thin air but at least it’s a bit more upbeat. I watched a documentary about Nick Drake last night. It’s a kinda sad story. 18.06 It’s still too hot to function. 18.58 I managed to …

Going Gonzo – Broken Dream.

It’s amazing how quick a dream can become a nightmare. It was a solid plan. New Life. New Place. New Love. New Me. Only one thing stood in the way. The “everything” that meant it could happen.

Thursday, 18th July 2019. 06.46 Today I am no longer immortal. It turns out that, all along, I was just an ageing dreamer. Full of unfulfilled ambition for unfulfillable dreams. 08.59 Now that I’ve had a few coffees, I feel a bit more alive. The above statement still stands. I found my timeline for yesterday. It was a good trot. …

Going Gonzo – Skill Set

Monday, 15th July 2019. 10.23 The only goal I have today is making sure Louis gets on his train alright. I’ve had to go to work in Gatwick(got removed from the other job as my skill set was required back in Gatwick), so it’s not the best place to be making that happen. I’ll just have to rely on him …

Going Gonzo – Interaction.

Monday, 8th July 2019. 08.54 And it goes on. I had a call from my ex saying that Sonny isn’t coming this weekend. He was supposed to come and stay from Wednesday until Monday.

Going Gonzo – Flying Past To Get To Brighton.

Thursday, 4th July 2019. 06.52 “It was a good job I wasn’t trippin’!” Jay said, as the car pulled out in front of us. Jay used to do quite a lot of LSD. We are heading to Gatwick to start a job. Not much of a job, but a job. Tomorrow I’m returning to Bob’s Books in Portobello Road. 07.35 …
