Hello! Me again! Did you miss me? It’s been an entire three months! Contrary to my blog’s title, it actually wasn’t out of procrastination. It was due to a fairly dark hole that I manged to dig, place myself in and struggle to get out of. Silly me forgot to install an escape route!
How never, I am back. With a twist.
I am sure I have mentioned at one point, or another, that I am overly ambitious and regularly set myself up to fail. This is most likely another one of those occasions, but I am attempting to have a positive July so I am going to pretend that this is all going to go according to plan. Sound fair? Good.
When I was younger, I quite fancied the idea of being a journalist. So much so that I did my secondary school work experience in a national newspaper. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed it and even managed to get published under my own bi-line! It all just seemed a bit too serious for me. Actual news is serious and for the most part, it isn’t a good news story. As much as I understand that the news has to be told, people need to be kept informed and it can’t always be fairytales and happy endings, I prefer not to put myself in a situation where I am constantly confronted with negativity. I prefer to write about things that make people smile and then occasionally touch on serious issues and topics that need to be addressed and discussed.
Basically, that was my long-winded way of saying that I didn’t suit the newspaper life. I know I could have just said that. I’m not apologising. It’s who I am. *insert sassy shrug*
Right, so back to the entire “twist” thing that I have gotten so far away from at this point and built up unnecessarily. *drumroll please*
I would like to turn this blog into a magazine type idea. Shorter articles that are more relevant and take away from the babble that this blog can occasionally turn into. Part of me believes that this is a most excellent idea. Another part of me believes that I’m going to fall flat on my face. But how never, we shall see. I recommend you all place your bets now!
So let’s see how it goes. Fairly recently, someone quite important to me reminded me that I can do anything I set my mind to. I’m not sure they are aware of the procrastinating side of my personality but I’m at least willing to try and prove them right!
Have an amazing July everyone and keep dreaming!
