So here’s the deal. I’m reinventing myself and while I tried to keep a journal at various times in my life, I know that I’m horrible at it. This time I’m goin’ all electronic and interwebby to see if I can sustain it for a bit.
I’ve been entirely too responsible, organized, efficient and dependable my entire life. Through a number of events in the past few years I’ve found myself doing a full review of who I am, what is important to me and where I should be focusing my energy. I’ll likely write about those events through time using that categories thing to note Life Changing Moment or something equally deep-sounding.
I’ve lived in the same community for most of my life short of a few departures for university and such. Part of this reinvention of myself involves quitting my job, selling my house, abandoning 99% of my “stuff” and driving across the country to a new life that is full of unknowns. Yes I’m single. Yes I have no kids. I made these life altering decisions without consulting anyone.
While as a kid I hated reading – every book report I did in junior high was a Stephen King book that conveniently had been made into a movie (I didn’t actually read the books). Now I have a stack of books that I cannot go through fast enough and am adding more to the collection all the time. I finally found what interested me to read about. Woo-woo stuff. There are a lot of stories. I’m an odd duck. We’ll get there.
