Life emergency !
Actually nothing to worry too much about – if you gaze down previous posts you may notice I have these as regularly as other people have pizza, but this one is given extra life-crisis validity by being close to my 30th birthday !
Therefore I am following it through more than other panics – hey, I’ve even updated and cleaned up my blog this time ! Now if I only I can get round to moving my old travel photos into my newer (and much sexier) online photo album, I’ll be in good shape for blogging again 🙂 One of the thing the spurred me on to include the increasingly inaccurately named “Exit Turner” in my cleanup was a lot of memories of people fired up from the guest book Mimi got me for my birthday.
Now, if you are reading this, there is a 95% chance you were included on her mails about this, but in case you are one of the few people I don’t have an e-mail address for, Mimi brought a great big leather-bound black-paged book, and got people to either e-mail over photos and comments which she printed and stuck in the book, or on the night of my birthday people were left with metallic pens, stickers and other miscellany to fill the book with kind (or not so kind !) comments. The result is a very heartwarming collection of memories, embarrassments and kind words. It also makes me realise how lucky I am to have a gal like Mimi 🙂
Did I also mention I got a Godzilla vrs Monkeys birthday cake ? Awesome !!!
Anyhow, back to the life emergency. Essentially I am having “full circle” crisis – e.g. I am where I was 4-5 years ago, with nothing in motion to change this. But this time I am avoiding drastic measures and working on the little things instead. Making some plans, and thinking about what I want to be actually doing in 5 years etc… Of course the options and questions are greater now that many of my friends are buying houses, living with partners and even having kids (e.g. growing up).
All of this will have to wait though – I have a far more immediate work crisis I need to attend to !!!
Back soon ? Hope so
