Stuck

I've not written anything substantial lately and for that I am sorry. Of course the same excuses will spew out from my mouth, but I genuinely have been busy. That's not to say that things haven't been going through my mind though.

I'm at that stage where I feel like I'm in a coffee shop, sipping away at my drink, and simply watching the world work, without me. I'd like to say a lot of changes are happening in my life, but it's not directly my life. It's that things are changing in the lives of the people around me, and that's having a slight effect on me. The effect it's having isn't anything I should worry about or anything ground breaking. If I'm being honest with you, the changes around me have no direct impact on my life. The problem is, I think that the fact that all these changes are happening without me, is what's bothering me the most.

I bet you're wondering what I'm rambling about, I'm wondering the exact same thing as my fingers just seem to be typing all these thoughts I've kept locked away, without me realising they even existed. I'm being a brat, aren't I? After all change is a good thing and I should be happy that the people around me are progressing for the better. So why am I envious of them?

I suppose it comes down to the fact that I feel stuck. I've not been able to explain this properly to the people who normally understand my mumbo-jumbo and innermost thoughts, it's probably because I don't know why I feel stuck.

Everyone is discussing the changes in their lives and including me in issues that have nothing to do with me, no relation to me and no impact on me and asking my opinion, which, in the end, they ignore. They're happy to talk to me about all their problems and issues, happy to ask me how I am, but when I decide to tell them how I am, they cut me off, I want to say mid-sentence but about two words in. I'm not being self-centred, I assure you. In fact I feel so out of the centre because I'm caring for people and having people unload on me, when I'm so far into the back of their minds that I'm a tiny speck of dust.

I almost wish I was talking about friends when I say people, that's bareable, but when it's family, it becomes a lot harder. I have no problems. I'm not in need of help, at least nothing they can help me with. I'd never ask or tell them, but it'd be nice if they could show some courtesy. They put the weight of their worlds on my shoulders and expect me to do nothing about it. I wonder if they realise there's enough weight on my shoulders without their excess baggage? Once again, the word stuck comes to mind.

The one person who makes me feel unstuck is thousands of miles away and that bothers me the most. There's only so much reassurance you can give when you're so far away, and while I'm sitting alone in that coffee shop, I need more than a text or internet access. I need a real person sitting opposite me with his hand on mine, reassuring me, without words, that everything will be alright, and everyone will work out their issues and keep changing for the better and I won't always be stuck - stuck in the middle of a situation, stuck in the same place, stuck having the same conversations, with the same beginning, middle and end.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
