So unfortunately, I have been neglectful and forgetful this past week. With so much going on, I’ve barely even done the things I should be doing, let alone the things I want to do, like writing blog posts!
Work, Uni, Work, Work, Uni… it’s a lot. And while I love doing it all, and I do quite like being busy, I miss the simpler days. The days of barely three days a week of classes, and then a couple of annoying shifts at work to earn some cashdollarz, plus more free time than I could poke a stick at, and the ability to go out any day of the week.
I could indulge shameful passions and get stuck into those things that I love doing but that have no benefit beyond enjoyment, and sometimes a little food for thought. Things like reading ten magazines in a day, sitting down to a good book, watching an entire TV series in one night, shopping, trawling through blogs, writing about everything and anything, playing piano and photography.
One day, I’ll suddenly realise that I haven’t done something I claim to love doing in such a long time. And that makes me a little sad.
Even my intense need to think about everything I wear seems to have sunk into a comfortable, yet resentful trough. It doesn’t mean I don’t love it, and that a great outfit doesn’t make me feel excellent. It feels like perhaps I’m stretching myself to reach every interest and ability, and others are slacking off.
If I don’t even have time to be excited about a good pair of printed trousers, what is the world coming to?
Luckily, in a moment of inspiration and rediscovery, I pulled out my red cheshire cat-like scarf and decided it would go excellently with my new dark blue velvet blazer. And voila, a small amount of sparkle and bother was injected back into my day.
