RTFBT Dammit

Oct 30

*read the fucking blog title This last few days/weeks I’ve not been thinking particularly happy thoughts. I’ve had moments, meeting up with friends and so on, where I’ve not been unhappy but in general I’ve felt quite grey and introspective. I’m not sure why – is it the weather, the dull days with little sunshine or is it stress,...

Writing Too Few Words

Oct 30

I was going to say I don’t know why I stopped writing, but actually when I think of it I do know why. Laziness. Apathy. Tiredness. All excuses, not actual things that should stop me.

Review (of sorts)

I’m not going into...

Challenges For My Future

Aug 31

As each day/week/month/year passes I become more aware of things I haven’t done that I would like to and also of things I don’t know that I want to learn about. Currently reading a book about pursuing challenges and quests which has got me thinking about what I want to do with the next phase of my life. I’ve already started putting things in motion...

Making Progress

Aug 19

I’ve started two new things in the past few months going to the gym regularly taking guitar lessons online Both involve learning new techniques and a dedication of my time. Both have been quite difficult for me. In both, at times, I have felt I am not making progress. However … I’ve had realisations recently with both activities that have changed...
