I keep thinking of things I could blog about, things I want to blog about, things I want to say, but I run into several problems. First one being that I can’t be arsed to sit down and try to logically sound things out into any sort of coherent post. Second one being that I can’t remember the last time I had enough time to sit down and get out everything I wanted to say. I start a post, and save the draft to finish later and then never get back to it. By that point it’s all old news and people wonder what rock I’ve been hiding under that I just wrote a blog post about the federal budget that was released 4 weeks ago.
It’s funny though, because I have plenty of time to play level 165 of Candy Crush Saga approximately 392 times before passing it. Go figure.
I also don’t want to feel like all I’m doing is blogging every time I have a gripe about something. And I’ve had a lot of gripes lately. There’s a lot of things I just don’t get. There’s a lot of things that worry me. And the more I think about them, to blog about them, the more annoyed I get, so I find it easier to just ignore it all.
Like politics. I’m irritated by our political system. By our country’s leaders who are no better than the school yard bullies – calling each other names, harassing each other, pointing out each others weaknesses. If my child talked about someone else, the way our politicians talk about each other, he’d have his Wii rights taken away for a month. It’s not good enough, from people who should be old enough to know better. And we allow it to carry on! Our media even fuels it!
Like feminism. I am all for equality of women. Equal rights, equal pay, equal everything. But some people out there go way OTT with their feminist rants and raves and it just makes me roll my eyes. It’s those feminists that give women a bad name! It’s like any extremist I suppose. Not all Muslims are terrorists, and all that.
Like being sick. I’m sick of feeling like I’ve swallowed razor blades, of not being able to breathe out of my left nostril, of feeling exhausted just from getting up to go to the toilet. Bloody winter! I do like the cooler days and nights, but I don’t like the winter germs that come with it.
Like kids birthday parties. O.M.G. A nice little tennis party, with a sausage sizzle, I thought. It will be easy, I thought. All I have to do is buy sausage and make a cake, I thought. I thought wrong. Stay tuned for next week’s Birthday Party instalment. I can’t even impair myself with alcohol as a couple of parents are doing the drop-and-go thing which means I’m responsible for their kids! That’s a whole other post all together!
Like my 5 day holiday still being over a week away. I know it will be here (and over!) before I know it, but right now it just seems SO far away! I’m looking forward to doing nothing. I think it will make me appreciate how hectic life is. When I realize how boring it is sitting around without technology, surely I’ll jump back into my life with gusto.
Or we’ll sell our worldly possessions and become gypsies. It could happen. Then I might not have so much to say.
