If a tree falls in a forest...

(This was my original avatar/blog theme)

 ...and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

With over 150 million other blogs out there I don't expect anyone to read mine. Just another blog by a directionless, twenty-something woman who thinks her dramas are more important than everyone else's.

Obviously, for me, this is personal. I've had diaries before (first attempt at age 11) but I'm never truly honest in them. I've always written things down with a deep fear that my mother or sisters might stumble across it. So my diaries lack the tales of boys I liked and girls I didn't that you would expect in a teenage diary.

Adult diaries haven't been much different, usually more of a way to document my eating/exercise plans than to record my feelings. My biggest problem is that I write much slower than I think and the whole process is tedious, so diaries only survive a few entries before they're retired. At least I can type fast, that might be enough to keep me blogging for longer. I can type entries on my non-iphone too which will give me less excuses.

So my reasons for wanting a blog are rather typical. I'm not happy with the direction my life is heading but I'm not sure how to change it. Or where I'd rather it went.

Might be best to leave the details for the next blog entry, it's lunchtime on Christmas Eve and I'm about to finish work (very productive day, obviously).

Happy Holidays :-D
