Mad August.

Like literally out of its head mad August.

Think of the basic needs you have in life. A job and a home would be close to the top of your list. This month I have lost both.

If you would have told me at the start of the year that these two events would have happened before the end of 2016, I would have said you were mad. Yet here I am.

This month I have been let down by two institutions I thought I had a reasonable, outside chance of relying on resulting in a whirlwind of shock and the very worst surprises possible. The inevitable depression of the situation has been overtaken by my amazement at this turn of events.

Why me? Perhaps the question I should be asking is "why not me?".

I know who have let me down. They know they have let me down. But I bear no ill will towards them.

And shoot me, but I still have hope. Dumbfuckery of the highest order perhaps, but my recent experiences have taught me that life can change in an instant. For better or for worse.

Maybe I should play the lottery? At this rate who knows what might happen...
