What I learnt this week: Have a little faith

It’s easy to lose faith in many aspects of your life.  We all do.  Sometimes you wonder what’s the point?  At the end of the day maybe there is no point t.  But if that’s the case I want to enjoy life whilst I can.  As there ain’t no guarantee of tomorrow.

My week was brimming with hard work, in both my day job and moon lighting career.  I prepared for the guerrilla film making master class on the weekend.  Created a new website, which is no small feat for my technologically challenged self.   I designed new business cards.  Updated my you tube channel, blog, face book page and linked in account.  The only thing I still couldn’t bring myself to do was get down with Twitter.  I know I must but the hash tags confuse me!

Thursday night was a girls night; Shelley, Aisha (her friend) and me, met for cocktails in Covent Garden.  Then headed to Fire and Stone for pizza and Prosecco (best combo ever).  On to the 99 Comedy club, which was brilliant.  Apart from the last guy who still thinks women in the kitchen jokes are funny.  They’ve been done, done and done mate.  Us girls decided to walk out, why should we sit there and listen to crap when we’ve been at work all day- NOT IN THE KITCHEN?  What a dick.

On the plus side I sat next to some nice guys who make their own ice cream, and had just been to a French restaurant together.  I know what your thinking but they swore they weren’t gay!  We indulged in Hagen Daaz after the ice cream chat.  Headed home a little too tipsy for a school night.

Friday I was very restrained, straight home after work to finish my website.  Was slightly distracted by a text session with the Navy boy.  Oh well, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do 🙂

Got up early headed to Regents park for a mind blowing two days of learning- at the guerrilla film making master class.  The first session was very philosophical, which I loved.  Then more technical.  Networking on the Saturday night.  Technical on the Sunday.  We had an inspirational guy, Johnny, who came and talked about his rise in the industry.  He started shakily in his career but kept going, never losing faith.  Now he has made a big budget film.

Which brings me to my theme this week: Faith.  During one lunch this week, Siobhan was regaling a story about being wooed by a guy, only to have been spat out and used.  Now she’s only 22 (quite a few years younger than me).  And she’s losing faith.  Imagine where I’m at with guys on this topic!

Although at the end of the day I keep trying, somehow forgetting how much it hurts to get burnt.  However I’m learning.  These days I give up way quicker when the writing is on the wall.  But something makes me keep trying.  I believe it’s faith that the next one will be a keeper! NB Having a boyfriend will never, ever complete me.  I’m already a complete human.   And I love my life.  But a girl can dream of meeting prince charming!

My lesson in faith was also compounded when I was walking to the train station and some religious followers were handing out fliers.  Now I don’t believe in the bible, because I know it’s definitely not true.  Here’s my reasoning: if god was a man, does anyone really believe he could be organised enough to create the world in 6 days?  I have two brothers, a father and have been with countless guys who when it comes to organising- are as useful as a chocolate tea pot…

Everyone has faith is different things.  Faith in religious belief, faith in love (not just with a guy) and Johnny had faith he would succeed absolutely.  We can have faith in all aspects of life and why not?  It’s better to have faith than the alternative.  So go on have a little 🙂

Funniest moment: Obviously watching the comedy night.  I enjoyed when the one of the comedians asked me if I was from Aus and I replied, ‘Dunno mate, wada you reckon?’  Yep I’m Aussie through and through.

What I did that scared me: ‘Networked’ at the master class.  Why is it so are to just say hi to people?

Highs:

▪   Meeting some awesome new peeps at the workshop- Daisy, Abid, Oliver, Adina, Andromeda, Dianne.

▪   Making my writing commitment and making it real.

▪   Neil buying me flowers at work, so sweet.

Lows:

▪   Not enough time in the day.

▪   Hearing women in the kitchen jokes, ‘Ain’t nobody got time for that!’

▪   Not getting to the gym.

What I learnt: Faith is sometimes hard to grasp but help makes the world a wonderful place to live.
