Funk

–noun

1. cowering fear; state of great fright or terror.
2. a dejected mood: He’s been in a funk ever since she walked out on him.

As I am not cowering in fear, I guess that 2. is the right definition for me.  Its as good as any really.  I mean, I have been fed up, its unsurprising really, at the start of the year I had a job that I enjoyed and paid lots, then I had a job that paid lots but sucked, then I didn’t have any job, then I had temp jobs and now I have a job that I like that doesn’t pay a lot. 

All throughout this timeI have had a lot of support from really good friends who unfortunately live too far away, so I don’t get to see them that often.  As more and more of themn get married off and start to have kids I will see them less and less now.  My mood is never helped by lonliness and boredom and never will be I suppose.  I hate the feeling of being hemmed in and with nothing exciteing on the horizon I generally feel really low.

Things however are looking up, I have made some good friends this year, who,  shock horror, actually live in the same city.  Now in a fit of boredom one lunchtime at work I have booked myself a holiday.  I had tried to get one over new year but I couldn’t find anything that I wanted to do for a price that I could afford, until I found this. 

I am going on Safari, in a 13 day overland tour that takes in Kenya (Masai Mara, Ngorogoro crater) mainland Tanzania (The Serengeti National Park) and the Island of Zanzibar where I can chill on a beach or go swimming with Dolphins.  The only trouble is that this is 23 weeks away, which is far too long for me to wait.  Its nearly half a year, but the speed that this year has gone by in it should only seem like 3 months at the most.

I don’t know if this will actually drag me out of the mire of terminal boredom and  general unhappiness, but its worked for the time being and I am rather excited.

Surely me getting married has had little effect on our friendship?! I’d like to think not.

That wasn’t actually aimed at you. But when you look at the ones that I have been to you will see that it does happen. Next year I doubt that after Cath and Steve get hitched I will see them that much.
