Where do I start…
It’s been well over a month since I last posted anything to my blog, and it hasn’t been due to a lack of things to write about. Life gets busy sometimes, and sometimes there just isn’t any time to catch up on things.
But maybe that’s just a bunch of bull.. there’s been plenty of time to write on my blog, and plenty of opportunities to log on. But for some reason, I just haven’t done it.
It’s not like I’ve been super busy with work or an amazing social life, because I haven’t been really. More than anything I’ve just fallen into a rut where all I seem to want to do when I get home from work is relax, watch Netflix, and sleep.
I haven’t been going out that much really. In fact I’ve continued my regular habit of spending my weekends at home, doing pretty much nothing.
But .. nothing.
For whatever reason I’ve just found it hard to sit down at the laptop and open up a fresh post, and put my thoughts to paper so to speak.
It’s not like I’ve stopped enjoying the writing process or the act itself, but I haven’t. If anything I’ve found myself itching to get back to it regularly.
I suppose a big factor in everything has to be environment.. in my current flat, I just don’t feel energised to be creative, or even have the energy to get off my ass and do what I want to do.
This probably has as much to do with how I feel about where I live as well as the environment itself. For whatever reason, my bedroom feels almost claustrophobic and dark, as if I was living in a basement instead of on the 2nd floor.
It also hasn’t helped that I’ve gotten into the habit of using my desk as a dumping point for post, dishes and whatnot, leaving hardly any room for my laptop let alone sitting at the desk and writing.
Not only have I done a massive clean up to reduce the clutter in my room (wasn’t messy per se, just needed a good clear out), but I’ve also given my notice to move.
That’s right, after almost a year living in this gloomy, dreary place, I’ve finally found a new place to live.. and will be moving by the end of October.
The sooner the better.
Not only is it closer to work (about 25 minutes by bus including a 10 minute walk to the bus stop), but it’s also more central and closer to my friends. So hopefully this will give me more of a push to get off my ass and live life more.
But I think the main reason I’m excited to move to this new place is my new flatmate. He seems really nice, friendly, and interested in having someone to share the flat with him, not just rent a room.
Oh, and he’s Italian. And gay. And yes, he’s cute.. but I won’t be looking to cross that boundary. LOL
I suppose this impending change has just gotten me excited about things a bit more again. And living in a flat where it doesn’t feel like I’m inconveniencing the other person.
Change is good, and I can’t wait for it to get here. 🙂
