I can’t tell you my worst mistake because it might cause conversation about my feelings towards the subject generally and I don’t want that.

The sensible answer is when I quit my job over stress and had a slow nervous breakdown for a year. Move to Scotland - it worked for me.

Is it just office stuff you want to avoid? What about jobs where there is an office but you’re not trapped in it all day?

YES!

congratulations!

Then he fights all the enemies who don’t like his flowers or songs.

Compulsory Seinfeld


#17

Losing my passport and having to cross international borders with just my good looks, having to pay £200 for a new one. OR playing cricket whilst drunk and breaking my finger. or taking some bad pills and nearly dying. Or playing camogie with no helmet and breaking my nose.
I’m a fucking idiot.

These seem combinable as well. You drive the train between your modelling, violin and tennis engagements, and do a bit of mystery shopping when they’re thin on the ground.

use the violin as a tennis racket

mystery shop a new violin when it breaks due to using it as a tennis racket
