If I could magically go back in time and have a conversation with my younger self, there’s a few things I’d let her know. Thinking about it now, there’s probably way more than ten things, but I’ve managed to break it down to the main pieces of advice. Realistically, it’s impossible to jump in a time machine and go back to 2010 but, it’s not impossible for someone else to look at these things and learn from them. So truly I’m not writing this for my younger self, I’m writing it for any person who is going through a hard time and might find comfort in this list.
The trials and tribulations of a lower league football club
As a fan of Crawley Town FC, it has been an up and down season to say the least. Yet another tumultuous season supporting a club that never ceases to amaze, even if watching us does make me want to pull my own teeth out at times.
People have many techniques for getting through lockdown and other covid restrictions. From making sure they use their daily exercise to picking up a new hobby.
One of the things that got me through these difficult times was music. Music is part of my life in many ways.
Before Covid I loved going to gigs, music festivals and going out to clubs. Dancing and singing along to music with my friends and having a few drinks was one of my favourite things to do.
With this side gone I really wanted to keep in touch with this important part of my life as much as possible.
