it has been so long since i sat down and wrote a proper entry in here i almost dont know what to write.and that annoys me.
The weather in the past few days has been somewhat precious,everyone seems to be in a more salubrious mood,amazing how the sun ensures some of our burdens evaporate with the rain.I proceeded to pass all my college exams creating simultaneous relief and surprise. Niall,the guy I lived with in Galway,is in my course which proved helpful during the course of first year.He bought the books,i taught him ;-) At midnight on the Friday before the first exam,with a few cans, we pondered over the idea of study,then we slept on the idea.I cleared the kitchen table and we sat down to maths,we regretted all the mornings we slept in. Any morning i didnt attend a lecture,I would shout into the room next door hoping for no reply from Niall but it was always in vain.He would not go in if i didnt.But we got through the long haul of study thanks to red bull,an expensive but worthwhile little beauty!!Nialls best mate from childhood died at Christmas R.I.P Pauric I admired the way Niall handled it,he had his sad nostalgic moments and the rest of us didnt know how to react to the two blown up photos of him&pauric arm in arm on a night out in Spain last summer...
I have made at least three really good friends in college this year,the rest are just class mates and drinking buddies.Sometimes i think about life and become overwhelmed,all the people in the world doing different things at the one time,billions of people all fighting for what they believe in,living for their partner and kids,all individual dreams and desires.Yet we are all interconnected.Thousands of people meet every day,some that are here right now will not be here tomorrow.and where they go is a completely different matter...
My dad has 12 siblings,seven live in USA since they emigrated ther in their 20's All are married with families and all have done extremely well.I heard a whisper that afew might even be millionaires(they didnt look like ones when i last saw them,i naively thought!)
Dads eldest sister Pauline lives in Long Island with her husband and two kidsTommy and Annmarie.Inevitably the kids have grown into fine young adults,as nature intented. Annmarie became a nurse,met and fell in love with her husband and they have three kids together.Just over two moths ago Annmarie kept getting painful headaches,Pauline insisted that she should go to the doc,so she did,was sent for scans and it was discovered she had Lukemia (the fucker doesnt deserve a capital letter) She was buried yesterday. 'Death is nothing at all i have only slipped into the next room' RIP ANNMARIE FLYNN -
One never ever will know when their time is up on this earth.eh live life to the full and if accuantances like my davy are not as permanent in your life as u once thought,my advise is to hold your head up high and walk on,life is full of trials n errors.What i once had with Davy has dissipated into a box of memories and i wonder why im not sad anymore.
