So I’ve decided that I’m going to be better at this. I think it’s important to keep a diary and a record and a running thought commentary at times, and I’ve let my blogs disappear as such, (apart from the twitter updates on the LJ), which are kind of annoying I guess, if you read them daily.
I’m also a little obsessed lately with the idea of there being some sort of record of my existence. I know of course that it’s not like I’ll disappear tomorrow, but with all this reading I’ve been doing about WWII (which seems so insane and different from my life now but hey), I’m fascinated by all this journal-keeping that went on, a record of what was happening around them.
I also have a busy life here, and a lot of thoughts, and a whole world of friends that don’t live here around me, so I really should be making more of an effort to keep up. I just feel like my time is so limited and it’s all eaten up by work and trying to sleep to feel alive and awake at work. Which shouldn’t be the way, but that’s what shift work does to you.
And then of course, there’s the long-distance relationship I have going on. Because I am mental. (And because D is wonderful). But it means co-ordinating schedules a bit, and having 11 hours difference between us can be interesting at times. It’ll be even harder when he gets a proper job.
So at the moment I’m working on living, and then after that if I get some free time to write, that’s a bonus. I do have a bit of a hiatus from work coming up this weekend, so hopefully some writings will flow forth then. Watch this space.
