It’s Been a While (Again)

Hello fellow bloggers, friends and followers,

It’s surely been a while and I have to apologise for this! I’m sure some of you might’ve guessed why I’ve not been around: I’ve been far too lazy, been too busy, lived life for a bit, lacked a bit of inspiration etc.

Firstly, don’t lay your accusations aside, for all of the above is true. I’ve been all of those things, but most of all, it has been the lack of inspiration and motivation – even to write about my life! However, life has been very bleak. Life becomes bleak when you fall into a dark place over and over again. I even fell into a really dark place when I believed I had met someone to settle down with. But all those dark places are now being left behind, one by one in small steps.

So what have I really been up to aside from touring dark places?

Well, to be entirely honest, just floating through life, catching up with old friends, lulling around the thought of taking up a masters degree at a few universities. Although, that plan went down the drain as the darker places began to grow in size. So, in the meantime, I’m just working, saving up for a few things – a house even.

I’ve gotten my own place not far from family. I’ve learnt that having your own place can come with its pro’s and con’s. The biggest con is that I don’t like being on my own. It’s very quiet and to come home each day with no one to greet (that includes a pet), it becomes very lonely. I’m thinking about getting a pet, a cat maybe. Although, I would like a dog, it’s just that I live in a flat (apartment) and it wouldn’t be fair for the dog to not go out into a garden and have a little wonder round. Cats on the other hand, don’t really care so long as they’re fed and can destroy things.

I would like to keep it short,  I don’t want to dwell and bore you to death with my day-to-day doings (despite what my blog About page says) and bring it to a close.

I hope all of you are well and are enjoying the summer, whether you’re working, on holiday, off school, college, or universities. Stay safe and be kind to one another.
