Well, first things first – I missed my first blog birthday. Which occurred on July 12th. So, Happy First Birthday Blog!
It’s been a year. Hard to imagine, sometimes. Time is such a weird thing. We measure it in years, and months, and days, and hours, and minutes,… and yet, what does all that really come down to? Nothing really. Sometimes, when I think about it, it’s just all random numbers. I mean, what does it mean, for one year to pass? 365 days. What is 365 days? Why not 400 days? What is it about a certain day on a particular year that relates to that certain day on the previous year? Why are anniversaries so significant?
Of course time has to coincide with the occurrence of night and day – 12 hours and 12 hours. The changing of seasons, the rotation of the world on its axis….. 24 hours to a day. 7 days to a week. 4 weeks to a month…..
It’s hard to comprehend sometimes. Am I weird to be thinking this? Lately it seems that my mind is generating all kinds of weird thoughts and thinking. Like it’s in hyper-drive, and I can’t stop it.
Here’s another significant anniversary – I finally completed my car payments! As of last week, my car’s well, … all mine. It took me 2 years, but I made it to the other side. And it feels pretty good. For someone who could well be jobless by the beginning of next year, it’s good not to have a significant chunk deducted from my bank account each month. Now, if only petrol prices will come back down a bit....
Work’s been alright. I anticipate things slowing down within the next couple of days. Which will be good. I’ve been running on over drive and I can definitely feel the internal stress building up. I really hope it settles soon.
