Well, this is awkward…
So I realised that my last post was about how I got fired from a promo job. And then I just didn’t post anything again for about 6 months. I realise that makes it look like I’d chucked myself off of All Saints bridge, so I thought I’d, y’know, post something so you didn’t all think I was dead.
Ironically, I’m actually doing really quite okay. I got myself a new job, tutoring GCSE Maths and English at a local college. It’s crazy but I genuinely love it. It’s quite a stretch away from sound engineering (and blogging), but I love working with the students and feeling like I’m actually doing something.
You see, that’s the problem with freelancing. There are times when you’re not doing anything. I don’t mean not working, I was always working, but I wasn’t doing anything that meant anything, not to me anyway. I was promoting products I didn’t care about, and I guess I was sort of was floating around in space without any direction. And I think that’s what this job has given me, some direction. Some grounding and some focus, which I wasn’t admitting that I was desperately searching for.
Funny that, isn’t it?
Wellllllll….. Yeah, I’m not gonna lie. I didn’t really miss it. I missed writing and taking photos sure, but all the SEO and social media shit that comes with it, nah. My Instagram has remained largely untouched for months, and I deleted the Twitter app from my phone. Social media isn’t my thing, and I’m pretty happy accepting that now. But the core elements of blogging, I have missed that. So here I am, back in my bright green room…
… Did I mention, my room isn’t actually green anymore? Oh, well yeah, I painted it blue. But still keeping the blog name, don’t worry.
I don’t know how often I’ll be posting, or what the content will be. I’m just going to blog when the spirit takes me, like baking a cake or doing the ironing. Just when I feel like it.
So hi, I’m not dead, and I hope you’re all okay too.
