I cannot wait!
Last night’s show was deadly. Great turnout for a Tuesday, hopefully the Side By Side boys can add to that at their next show on August 1st. Got home and watched the latest episode of HBO’s new show The Leftovers. It’s about 2% of the world’s population mysteriously disappearing and how one town is dealing with it. It’s really good. It’s HBO good, like.
I haven’t posted on this properly in over a month. Summer is busy season for shows and with the World Cup on top of it, Fibber Magees has been crazy. I’m putting on Roddy Piper on Friday. If you’re not heading to the GWB Charity Show (major downer on the date clash), pop along.
It’s been a very testing month coming off a couple of other testing months for me with pretty much everything; Demented Promotions, Fibber Magees, Football and then what little I have of a life after that. Most of it has been completely negative, disconcerting, disheartening and extremely anger inducing.
I’m choosing to focus on what few positives I have gotten out of the last 3 months and move forward with my life. There will (hopefully) be a huge positive change for my life coming within the next month and while I’m working on that, my focus is on working my arse off to be a better football player for next season. The plan is to drop 15KG and possibly look at changing position. There is no question that I’m at my happiest playing football. I get the buzz I used to get from putting on shows. It takes a ton of work but is so rewarding and even when things don’t go your way, and that happened a lot with only 1 win for the Dragons this year, you’re still glad you suited up, gave up your free time and put 100% into it.
I keep hoping that that feeling will come back with Demented Promotions. It served me well over the last 8+ years but we’ll have to see what happens over the rest of 2014 as I finish out the shows that I’ve already committed to.
