Every now and then I go through a phase with my blog.. where I get very dissatisfied and the joy of writing seems to wane.
I think part of the reason that I find it dissapointing is that I feel a good blog often has a theme to it. Like a fashion blog might have the ‘what I wore today’ aspect, something that bloggers come back to read cos they are kinda expecting it.. and I find the need to want a theme of sorts. For a while I tried the ‘monthly summaries’.. and for now (because who knows whether I’ll ever repear this again).. my new segment is “Introducing..”
Introducing The world in Colour a blog by Georgia Harvison.
As soon as I realised that Georgia had started a blog, I think I actually jumped with excitement! I typed the link in so quick and did a quick overall perusal and then got into the posts. Only 5 posts young and I want more out of this blog.
I think Georgia is extremely talented, intelligent, fashionable and I just knew I’d enjoy a blog from her. So many people start blogs and never follow through.. and it is hard.. you’re talking to 5 years of picking up and putting down and picking up the blog. I hope Georgia is a dedicated blogger – for my own selfish reasons. She should probably get a tumblr too, so I can see all the fashion people she’d follow and then I could follow them too!
this blog drains me sometimes. no offence.
and while i’m still finding a decent amount of free time at work, i’m giving tumblr a try. it’s much shorter and i find it much easier to post cos I don’t feel the pressure of it.
so you can check out my tumblr account out if you like – sorry wordpress!
Quite accidentally, I’ve been on a university break for the last year.
I meant to enrol for subjects.. and actually just forgot, twice. I realised that if I didn’t enrol again this semester, I might never do it. I do want to finish this degree – maybe before 2020 – so I made sure I enrolled. Left it to the first day I officially started my degree but that’s not really important.
I think maybe I’ve never really realised how fortunate I am. I mean I have moments when I realise it, during a compassion tv ad or something like that. But I can’t believe that I can so easily educate myself. I think learning is such a valid part of life. If I could afford it, I’d probably be a full time student forever. I enjoy learning. I take a strange sort of pleasure in it.
However, I do not like assessment. I wish universities trusted me enough that I knew the material. Like maybe they pull us in for a conversation over coffee and chat about what I learnt throughout the semester. This post is basically just a warning. Either that I’ll be MIA for the next 6 months.. or you are about to get a ridiculous amount of blogging out of me. Fun facts about Marketing or Crisis Management or an amazing amount of fashion blogging.
Also.. I think I forgot how to reference. Remind me to never forget to enrol again. I could be 2 and half years down out of my 6 instead of just 1 and a half.
I took these snaps over the last day or two.. just a bit of photo loving from the iPhone.
I love post its. It’s kind of fun to make an accordian with your post its.
I love friends and friends birthdays and friends birthdays by the fire.
I love cheap new work shoes that feel like flats but have a heel.
I love how perfectly my furniture matches my new house, I also love photos.
