So, readers, I just spent 30 minutes typing something for this blog that will never be published here for you all to read. At the last minute, I had second thoughts. The thing was about a personal matter but I started to worry it might offend some readers so I decided it wasn’t important enough to publish. Instead you get this harmless text.
Sorry. I’m a coward sometimes.
This summer has been a mixed bag. First half of June was pretty bad, weather wasn’t that good but the end of June and most of July has been great. Very warm weather the last few weeks. Very little rain. I have enjoyed some extra days “off” for the first time in years and I have really felt myself recharged for every day “off” I’ve had. Time to think, to sleep and to get away from some of the stress of being unemployed. Really been good for me. I needed it more than I knew.
Now I’m at the end of it. Next week I’m back at doing five days a week at the office and all is back to the normal grind. At least I have some new energy to find ways to move ahead. Not so long ago I had none of that. I guess all I needed was time away from the daily monotony.
I have been talking to some friends and that also helps my mood.
So the short story is: I feel good or at least a lot better than before.
Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – American Dream Plan B
Relax, I’m talking about the weather. June was ok, July awesome and August has been amazing. Not at all like last summer when it rained every other day and some day in June was colder than Christmas or perhaps New Year’s Eve.
This year, after a really long snowy and mostly cold winter followed by a short spring, summer grew to become really wonderful. Just what this nation needed. Maybe all the sun and warm weather is the reason I haven’t been writing much on here. Maybe also the fact I haven’t had much to write about, but let’s stay on the positive side of things this time.
This week my brother the chef/drummer is coming to visit me. Been a year since last time so it’ll be nice to catch up on things.
A part from that, there’s not much going on. I’m still trying to find some work and I’m still spending my days at an office where I work on project that might help me find a real job.
Next month, I’ll be a year older again. Later in September, my oldest nephew turns 40 years old. Soon he’ll catch up with me. Anyway I’m really proud of him because he’s running his own business directing and producing music videos and other projects while also taking care of his baby daughter. From very early on he seems to have known what he wanted to do and then he simply followed his dream.
I wish I had some more of that kind of determination. However, I’ve never been able to really decide what I really want to do. I’m too easily distracted if I find something interesting while I’m already doing something else.
