The Crossroads

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Five minutes ago, I was about to send an email to Pauline Kenny, who designed this blog, to tell her I can’t do it anymore.  It’s been almost a year since I wrote last, and I am not going to bore you with all the excuses I have for not writing in it.  (OK, here’s one excuse – my head is splintering, and has been, with all the things I have going on.  But an excuse it is, because I am good at time-wastage.)

I almost sent the email and then I stopped myself and said YOU CAN DO IT to myself.. hehe I’m a walking Nike Slogan (not.)  And I started thinking about Benjamin Franklin, how he had this sort of datebook list of what he’d do every day like:

6 AM Wake up

7AM Wash, eat, read for one hour

8 AM study French

9 AM go over my accounts

And so on and so forth.  I kind of wish I could do a schedule too, because then I could schedule in everything I am not doing and maybe it would work, like blogging.  But schedules don’t work for me too well mostly because I never stick to them.  And when I make other people try to follow MY schedule they pretty much just ignore me, laugh, or ask why I don’t have children.

I do have a trip to Spain coming up in three weeks.  And after that trip some pretty interesting life changes.  So, maybe it’s time to get Poptarticus back into the schedule or at least the, uh, thought of scheduling.  It’s not like I don’t have a gazillion things going through my mind every freaking minute.  It’s just that, I have forgotten how to blog about them.

Pauline spent a lot of time putting this website together for me, so for her, I am not going to just give it up.  I’m really going to try this time.  Stay tuned then, for my adventures in Valencia and Catalonia.  And onward.
