Nocturnal pleasures

I’m currently up way past my bedtime listening to Skriet and drinking some green tea. I’ve wanted to listen to this album for quite some time now so it’s perfect to sit here late at night and just enjoying it streaming out through the headphones and my ears into my brain. And no, this is not distracting me at all…

What’s this?

I know that there’s a special kind of hell for people who’re away for over six months from their blog and then come back excusing themselves for being away, so I won’t excuse myself. I’ve just spent an evening folding laundry, listening to Existensminimum and watching the first two episodes of Bored to Death. Good times, good times. Now off to read some Chabon and then bed. Toodles!

I’ve had a number of blogs through the years and none of them have lived for longer than, say, a couple of months. It’s difficult to find the focus and motivation to post, what language to write in and what you want to reveal and what you want to keep to yourself. All of these things are matters that one must consider when writing online, because you never know who might find your writings and what they might make of it. For instance, I remember when I applied for my current job – it just so happened that a number of people at the company had taken their time to look me up on the Internet. Sure, my CV included a link to some of my work online, but it did take just a pinch of extra effort to look up my blog. But so they did, and there was the naked truth just under the noses. Luckily, the blog didn’t contain anything overly embarassing, but you never know – when you least expect it, your future boss might see your photos of your piss drunk mug on Facebook!
