Back on track

There's obviously a lot that's happened since my last post, and even more before that. There's been definite highs and lows, and pretty much everything in between... but somehow very little to write about, or no time to do so in. My inspiration's been squashed under the pressures of just getting through a day without falling too far behind.

But things are starting to get... easier. It's not that I have more free time (quite the opposite), it's just better structured. For example, every day now starts and ends with a 20 minute train journey, with little else to do but think... and add to that the Livejournal app on the iPod, and suddenly you have the perfect window for blogging. For getting my mind in order before the hectic day ahead.

So instead of a blog of thoughts over a cup of tea, this may become a blog of thoughts on a train for a while. But that's ok, because at the moment this train feels a lot like my life -- it's not perfect, it needs a lot of improvement and it's far too overcrowded, but I feel like I know where it's going, and am fairly hopeful it'll eventually get there. (The metaphor is perhaps overextended a little there, but the two are definitely linked, as can be seen by the fact that when I'm already running late, so are the trains.) In the meantime, it's just nice to be having thoughts again, and time to write them down.

  • Identity Crisis

    The internet is a scary place sometimes. It all started with an email about puppies. I realise that sounds like it was probably spam, but something…
