I just wanted to share this with you. The day after my motivating talk (blog post following later) I’ve decided to postpone my household chores and to pick up my laptop to start writing. I’ve only ever written one personal little story before, so this is a big moment for me.
My boyfriend knows I’ve been wanting to start a blog, and the moment I pulled my laptop out of it’s bag he asked excitedly if I was going to start working on my blog. Well yes my friend, I am!
Without thinking, I picked the couch as my working spot. Maybe to separate my “blogging vibe” from my “working vibe” (a.k.a. sitting at a desk with my laptop). Only after writing my first paragraph I realised that I was probably keeping my boyfriend from his “chilling with Netflix” way of unwinding at Friday night. When I told him he could just join me on the couch and turn on the TV he politely declined, saying that would only distract me and he would not have that on his conscience. So now he’s taken himself out of my way, sitting on his own in a chair on the other side of the living room. Probably checking 9GAG as an alternative to watching TV. Isn’t that just heartwarming, such commitment to even one of my whims!
So I’m sitting here, full of energy, ready to face all the challenges in this new bloggin’ world. I’ve opened my choice typepad (Evernote online) and I’ve started writing my first post!
This little ‘aside’ post is just a way for me to start reflecting on life’s little gifts and as a way to start this blog lightheartedly.
Now on to finishing my first actual blog post (the one I was writing when the urge to write this one came up)!
See you later, alligator!
