I have a bad conscience. This blog has not been getting the attention that it needs and deserves from me recently. I blame school. That’s better than blaming myself for choosing a course in my life that I wasn’t properly prepared for and the fact I’ve been chasing my tail for the past few weeks trying to catch up. Yes, school is the culprit.
I’ve also been stuck in a rut. A writer’s block I think it’s called. Or maybe it’s called perfectionism because I’ve actually been writing a lot of posts but I never post them because I feel they’re not good enough. I should probably work on that.
So I decided that today I was going to post something on the blog. Anything, in fact. To break the ice and the silence. Even though it means I have to become personal.
I write under the assumption that you don’t want to read about my personal business, you see. You’re probably a tourist about to embark on a journey to Reykjavík and you want read about places and prices – not how my day is going. It’s going fine, by the way. I love rainy autumn days like today. I prefer the word autumn over fall.
It’s interesting to be a student again at this “mature” age. When I use words like mature about myself I feel like I’m ancient and not just 31. Most of the people in my classes weren’t even born when I got my first computer though so I feel a bit ancient most days. It’s OK because I know that what I lack in youth I make up for in experience.
Economics lectures and reflections on management are not very inspiring subjects to get the creative travel blog juices flowing. Accounting flat out kills them. Formal education sometimes seems to be aimed at putting us all into manageable boxes instead of encouraging creativity. Resistance is futile. I still try .
I’m not going to make any promises about being more active on the blog. I can’t guarantee that I can. Trying should count for something, right? I sometimes also feel no one is reading this even though I know from statistics that i’s not true. Would it kill you to comment from time to time? I’m doing this for free you know. I kid.
Anyway, leave a comment below for a suggestions of topics you want me to cover and I might eventually get around to writing about them. Or not. Time-management issues, remember?
