The title of this post makes it sound like some sort of morbid rant about my feelings and why I hate this and hate that. I can assure you it’s not. I simply wanted to catch up without calling this post a catch up of sorts.
As the days are getting darker and the nights are drawing in, I find my productivity levels during the evenings are dipping. I am so much less motivated to go out for a run or do the diploma work that I really need to get into again.
That’s right, I mentioned a run! I now go running 2 to 3 times a week and am following the couch to 5k app to ease me into it. I’m only on the last run of week 2 at the moment but I’m surprising myself each time I do it. I feel like I’m pushing myself when I feel it getting harder which is great. (I promise not to turn into a fitness freak and bang on about how amazing running is all the time). I haven’t got to the point where I run before work because who in their right mind would actually want to do that?
Running before work wouldn’t be an option anyway because I leave so early. The commute seems to be gradually getting worse during the colder months. And is it just me but do people drive 10 times slower in the rain? Yes you should slow down but my god it’s not snow! Anyway rant aside, when I’m actually at work it’s okay. I’ve been busy then not busy and kind of wishing I had a few weeks off because no one seems to be in the office at the moment. Looking forward to a week off in October.
I guess one more thing to update on in this post is the blogging industry. Every blogger has been taking to Twitter to voice their opinion about this one and I don’t really want to seem like I’m jumping on the bandwagon so I’ll keep it brief. The blogging industry has become very judgemental and if you have a significant following, it’s hard to post anything without someone pulling it to pieces. There I said it. Luckily for me I don’t have a massive following (so I can write what I like right?)
I can’t write what I like but I’m observing how the internet is making people into bitter, jealous trolls who crave what everyone else has without putting in the hard work. How about if we all just write and not pass judgement? (I feel like I’m not sticking to my brief update on this). I want to carry on writing this blog. I almost think I’d like to make it into more of a diary.
I never thought I’d have that sort of direction with my blog but at the moment, with the way the blogging industry is, lots of topics feel over worked or futile. I don’t want to feel like I’m afraid of what people may think or trying too hard to be original but this blog was always intended to give people advice and make them feel like they’re less alone in the world.
So with that in mind, I’m going to create a little content schedule and write more posts centred around helping others through the minefield that is your twenties. (Is minefield a bit too dramatic?)
As always, if you’d like to see a topic covered in my blog, let me know.
