Be honest with yourself and those who you're close with, I have to adopt as my motto. Because pent-up feelings won't do anybody any good.
The title of "world's fastest man", just isn't something that's noticed by those in North America, even when the owner is a bona-fide American. Amazing. I wonder if it was big news in Jamaica where the current world record holder, Asafa Powell, is a citizen.
Congrats to Bermuda for winning their inagural one-day international cricket match against Canada. While Bermuda still doesn't have a facility capable of hosting a ODI, it's good that the side has gotten off to a good start to hopefully a lengthy period at the upper-etchelons of cricket. Too bad they lost the second match comprehensively to Zimbabwe.
Too much has happenend recently - I've forgotten most of the things I wanted to post about. Work is intense, the good news is we have some summer students and they're quite good, it seems.
Getting back into sports. Played in the BVA Corporate Tourney and after a long hard day of sweat and tears (mostly sweat), our team were victorious. Hoping to play more when summer beach league starts up. Also, flag football looks ready to resume (finally!) and have been playing tennis on a weekly basis. This can only be a good thing.
Tonight, first Happy Hour at Fairmont Hamilton Princess. Also, new happy
hour going on at the former Pier 6. Plus the usual Friday post-work
Happy Hours at Lemon Tree, Cafe Cairo and several other places. Also
worth mentioning, a speed-dating event at BUEI.
Me, I decided to do something by myself and not get caught up in the
whole meet-and-mingle-bit over a drink. Went to watch some volleyball,
which I hadn't done in at least a year. Bermuda's women's team played a
friendly against a team called Halifax Xplosion from Canada and it was
fun to relax and watch the game and meet some of the guys that I played
with back when I was big into local volleyball. I want to get back in,
eventually. More on that later.
So yes, I'm a big dork. Went to watch volleyball solo instead of being
all social with the crowds. Que sera, sera.
I think in hindsight that persistence in trying to make something more out of a sinking ship may have contributed to the eventual anger, bitterness and resentment that arose on all sides and caused a bunch of utterings that shouldn't have been said.
I've tried to not look back and wonder why, but I can't. Maybe we all need some form of closure. Maybe soon it will happen. Maybe not. They say time heals wounds.
I cannot regret the experience overall and think that for me at least it will benefit me long-term. I'm so sorry it had to end in such a horrible fashion - mistakes were made on both sides and although I think that even the lightest of friendship/acquaintance situation is unlikely, some civility can possibly achieved in light of the many positives attained during the experience.
