You may have wondered why I didn't write anything last week. You may not have, and that's okay too. The reason for my absence was due to what happened to me whilst walking home from the casino last Tuesday night.

yeah this is sad and a terrible thing to happen to any person, glad you are taking it as an experience and I would too, i just learned not to bring many valuables when going to work just the necessity and also for casino trip etc.
Anyway happy you taking it positively, keep it up mate, life can play twist at you, but we always come back stronger!
Sad to read it mate, I hope you recover soon (in both physical and psychological way). I always reading it that youth crime is at all time high in England, I would've thought that a tory goverment will be tough on crime no matter what, but probably they are not the ones who have to walk home alone at night. Next time try to wait for the first morning bus, the time you could save by walking home would not worth it (to have another stressfull experience at night).

Sorry hear you got mugged - the good thing is they got nothing. I love the fact you only had a paperback on you, strikes me as really amusing. I wonder if they were literate. I guess you know in the future never to take anything valuable either. Lessons and a story

dam, sorry to hear sht like that happened to you, but you know ... all is well that ends well, sort of :=)
In the end they didnt manage to get anything of you, so i guess that should make you happy... not in a sense that you didnt lost anything of value, but more like... they didnt gain anything by mugging you, idk at least for me that would be rather satisfying
hey and on a good side, you got a new shift, hope you like it.

I think them guys were cowards, if they were each by themselves. they would not of done that, they have to pair up to gang up on someone and in my books that is a coward, but glad to hear you are okay and your spirits are still up there, good luck in future.
