S is for...Same shit, different day


S is for...Same shit, different day

So, I’ve got a tattoo on the inside of my left foot. I’ve had it for like 14/15 years. It just says déjà vu. And I have it for a few reasons.


I used to, and still get, déjà vu from time to time. And when I do, it fucking spins me out. Because, I genuinely get it. And it’s fucking mental. The most mental part about getting déjà vu is the realisation and then subsequent reflective period of getting it. Think about it,


There’s us, you and me, sat having dinner. All of a sudden I pop out with,


“I’ve just got déjà vu.”


or


“I’ve been here before.”

“Yeah Chris, this is McDonald’s.”

“No, like, I’ve been in this exact moment before.”


That is creepy as shit. It’s fucking weird.

Personally, I can understand why you wouldn’t want to hang out with me.


But anyway, my one brother said, déjà vu is being in the right place at the right time. I love the idea of that. So, that’s why it’s on the inside of my foot; wherever I am at that moment in time, as far as I’m concerned I’m meant to be there. Be it because I put myself there or some fucked up higher power put me there that I don’t understand.


On the flip side however, to me it also means, ‘same shit, different day’. Now I don’t know if I decided that to be funny, because I genuinely believe that, or just because I needed something to balance the trippy supernatural argument. But anyway, same shit different day.


Because it is. That’s what life is. Same shit, different day/ The trick or game is, just trying to get your head around all of the shit; any it’s array of forms and types. Splendid.


I was sparked to write this post today because I’ve seen a post on Instagram of

New Year, New You!


It was posted by a gym. Surprise.


Same shit, different year in this instance.


Having worked a bunch of my life in leisure, that shit bores me. In fact, it more than bores me, it fucks me off to my very core! My VERY core! VERY!


It bores me because it’s so fucking stupid. Yeah, New Years resolutions are cool. A great concept or thing to aim for. But they aren’t as cool as, shit I don’t know, an every second resolution are they?! Oh, I messed that up, never mind look, another second is coming along any minute. I can try again then.


Instead it’s like, January 2nd, oh well that’s it.


“I’m fucked. I couldn’t resist eating all the chocolate I got for Christmas. In fact I did it all in one bite. I’m such a stupid fuck with no self-control. Nevermind, THERE’S ALWAYS NEXT YEAR!!!”


Are you fucking kidding me?


I’ve got to stop writing this post now, otherwise I’m going to piss myself off so much I won’t get a chance at another ‘Same shit, different day.’


Fuck me!
