Apologies For The Recent PastI've come to the conclusion that the last few weeks' worth of posts have been very boring. I've come to this conclusion without anyone pointing out to me, and I'm noticing it even as I've been writing today's posts.
I seem to be writing a purely diary-esque blog at the moment. It's going along the lines of "I did this, then I did this, then I did this, and then I did this." It's getting a little repetitive to write, and I'm sure it's getting that way to read.
The only reason I can think of for this is that I am currently in a good period of my life. I'm happy, genuinely. I have no worries that plague me day and night, I'm not scared of anything that is going to happen or hasn't happened. I am quite simply happy with my life at this point in time.
Yes, there are things that could be better, or different, but there's a lot that could be very much worse. I'm content with my surroundings, I'm content with the people that are in in my life, and most importantly, I'm content with myself. I actually like me.
I know that I've gone through some shit times, in the past year, in my life as a whole. This happens to not be one of those times. I'm on a high point in my life, enjoying everything that is happening, and looking forward to what is going to happen.
Some people would be scared or at least apprehensive at moving to a different country to live, not knowing a single person there. I'm not. I can hardly wait to get out there, because it's going to be a different experience. I want a new challenge, a new set of circumstances to find myself in, and new situations to be involved in. It's going to be fantastic.
All of this leads to the fact that this makes for uninteresting reading for you and writing for me. I find my best writing comes when I'm low, when I'm upset, angry or depressed. I express myself here and get things out of my system. When I'm as happy as I am now, I don't have anything to vent, save for a few minor gripes (smokers!!!).
Of course I'm going to continue to post, but let me just state here that I'm aware that I may be becoming boring to read at the moment. I'm sorry, but if payment for being happy in my life is a lack of creativity or impetus to write, I'll take being happy 9 times out of 10.
However, if anyone wants to piss me off in order to make for more interesting reading, the email is rob[at]gooneruk[dot]com...
