Scrolling through my final post for 2012 and my eye caught this:
"Will also set a goal for 52 blog posts in 2013. That's one a week. Surely that's manageable."
I haven't done terribly well so far, have I? It's halfway through February and this is my first post.
I am keeping up with my One Line A Day. Tales From the Ticketing World is on hiatus, due to some rumblings from some anonymous staff members of a certain arts organisation. I feel like I'm back in grade school with their pathetic "we're gonna tell on you to your company because we think your blog is unprofessional" threats. I'm so glad I only have to deal with them for another few weeks.
I really have very little enthusiasm for writing at the moment. I actually have very little enthusiasm for anything at the moment, period. I thought I had an exciting new job all lined up, but that's been put on hold. Bureaucracy at work again. It may still happen and I need to have patience, but my god, it's difficult. My current job is changing, and not in a way I'm particularly pleased with or that I feel I have any control over. I feel like a glorified administrator in an organisation which doesn't reflect my morals or ideals. I want to be doing work that's important and which will benefit people. What I do right now benefits no one, including myself.
What I hate most at the moment though, is the way that I feel unable to truly express myself, especially through this blog. I feel like I'm being spied on by the same people who threatened my other blog. And hey, if I am right and you are reading this? Fuck off and get a life. What did I ever do to you? If I did do something to piss you off, then grow a pair, man up and tell me to my face. Let's duke it out and resolve it.
Anyway. That's not a terribly positive blog post to kick off the year... apologies to my regular (read: lovely) readers. I'll try and come up with something a little more perky for my second post.
For now, I just wanted to drop by and say hello.

See you soon.
Oh and Happy Valentine's Day... if that's your thing. Personally, I'm more of a fan of Galentine's Day (Feb 13). Don't know what that is? Let me share...
