My New Blog

Just to let my (non-existent) readers know - I've relocated. This time to a blog where I actually post regular well written stuff :)

Professions I've considered

When I was five, naturally, I wanted to be a princess. I don't think I ever really thought about it seriously, but it was something I dreamed about. As I grew older the fantasy sort of faded, and when I was about six or seven I wanted to be an air hostess. It just seemed so glamorous and exciting - wearing make-up and high heels and wearing the outfit with the bun and hat, I loved airplanes and it seemed all professional. But then I became worried about the plane crashing or blowing up. Which was really stupid because, yes there was a chance it would blow up, but there was also a chance that the tube station would blow up, and I had no problem with using the underground. But I was six, so it's kind of justified. Oh yeah, and another thing I considered aspiring to was becoming a train driver or pilot, but I rejected both ideas for the same reason.

Eventually I decided I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up, and didn't really bother thinking about it.  I would get really annoyed when adults asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, because it was like the most boring question ever. Seriously. I mean, did they even care what I wanted to be?

Then, like five years later I realised I wanted to become an author.

Before, I'd liked writing, and I mean really liked, but I didn't want to become an author. Partly because it sounded boring and partly because it seemed stupid to decide to want to do something now, especially since I had so many hobbies, including drumming. But then, I got really into writing, probably because I discovered creative writing, which was about not fussing over grammar, and being... Creative.

At the same time, I also wanted to become a drummer/ drum teacher. Drum kit or djembe, I wasn't suRe which. Possibly both. But now I've decided drum kit player.

At some point I also wanted to run sushi making workshops.

Right now I want to be an author and a drum kit player.

What's been happening...

I've been Tweeting a lot lately, which might be a reason why I haven't been blogging as much. But I intend to blog more often (Yeah, I know, you've heard that one before.) It's just hard keeping track of all the stuff I have to do/ want to do/ should do. I know I've said that before but it's still true. There aren't as many drumming classes, but there's more stuff to do at home.

Sooo... I'm meant to be writing about what I've been doing lately, right?

I've been listening to Nirvana a lot. I have been making barbecues. I have been going to Westfield and eating Westfield pretzels. I have been listening to The Kaiser Chiefs and Skillet.

I've been getting really distracted from my work and going on Twitter, or googling life hacks instead.

Today I went to a home-ed group today in Regents Park. I had vege-mee for lunch.

I have been living :-)
