Hey, hello, it’s me again. So I have not been posting at all consistently but now I’m all moved into my first apartment and I currently don’t have a job so I’ve run out of excuses for not writing. Trying to ease back into writing everyday and posting much more often.
The older I get, the quicker time seems to pass by. A month goes by in the blink of an eye. It’s already nearly April. That’s a quarter of the year that has already gone. A quarter of the year, and what have I accomplished? Nothing. Nothing to show for all that time. Glued to a phone screen, reading one post after another on Facebook or Reddit, amusing myself with pictures and text that I know I will completely forget a few days later.
Here in Ireland, we have just had the heaviest snowfall in decades. For many of us, myself included, it was more snow than we had ever seen in our entire lives. It literally froze our country to a standstill. Being confined indoors for the past few days gave me a lot of time to think; more precisely, to think about snow. Snow has always awakened the child in me, as I’m sure it does many others.
I wrote down my thoughts on snow, and decided they would look better in a poem than a standard blog post. As usual, my anxiety has been telling me not to post this, “people will hate it”, “you’re terrible”, yadda yadda. But you’ll never know unless you try and you’ll also never improve. I’m trying out something new here, but I am a fan of poetry so if there’s an interest, I may post more here in the future, or I may set up a separate blog for that sort of thing. Let me know what you think.
It’s been a whopping four months since I last posted on here – since I last wrote anything at all, actually. I don’t really have any excuses. I had a bunch of Halloween and Autumn-y posts planned, but I didn’t get the first one done one week and then I didn’t do the next and then Halloween was over and my fatal flaw got to me again – guilt.
Hey everyone! This is just a quick post to say that I recognise that I haven’t posted in a while, and to explain why. If you’re a follower of my blog, then you’ll know that I have depression, and this sometimes interferes with many aspects of my life, including writing.
