My my, I haven’t made the best blogging start to the new year have I? Halfway through January and this is only my third post. Disgraceful! I have been a little preoccupied recently I suppose; I’ve all these half-baked notions and schemes that have been brewing up in the auld noggin for a while now and suddenly I’ve the urge to put them all into action at once. As a result I’ve been a bit of an erratic mess, unable to concentrate on one project for long enough without feeling I should be directing my attention elsewhere. And I know exactly why too- you know, psychologically and all that.
It’s because of my birthday. Which, incidentally, isn’t actually until next month but I’ve always mentally checked my age by the turning of the year. So you see folks, in my head I am now 29- eek! I never imagined I’d be the type to get freaked out by age, yet as these past years have drawn in at increasingly rapid speed I find myself facing ‘the big 3-0’ with a growing sense of impending doom. I know that once I get past it I’ll be grand, but before then I have to come to terms with the loss of my youth, dramatic as that sounds. And then there are all those things I’d hoped to have done by the time I resigned myself to absolute adulthood!
I was going to write a list, then I thought about it and realised that it would just make it even more depressing if I reached the end of the year not having completed all of the goals on it. Which would be pretty much inevitable since I’ve some pretty grandiose ambitions for the coming months. The whole point of this post was to share some of the said plans, but now that I’m here I realise I’m not quite ready to divulge the details just yet. I’d probably just bore you all anyway. Which leaves me with a dilemma- what exactly is the point to this blog post? I can’t seem to come up with one at the minute… Ah well, I’ve written it now so I’m still clicking ‘publish’!
