My life

I started placement in Galway hospital this year, that takes up most days. Training has my evenings and racing has most weekends. My life sounds incredibly boring when I put it like that but trust me, I’ve lived differently before and I know this is what makes me happy. I don’t have a lot of time to play around with and I definitely don’t have any time pencilled in for creativity. Writing gets the backseat to real life unfortunately.

That’s why I’m bringing the blog back. Whether you agree or not, I believe my blog serves a purpose and that allows me to justify giving it time.

Here’s where I run into problems. How much time? I have a tendency to pour my heart and soul and time into whatever I’m doing. The all or nothing approach. I did that when I first started the blog, I became obsessed and it had some negative repercussions for the rest of my life.

I would like to achieve the art of having a hobby that I don’t allow consume me and take over my life. So if you notice I disappear off the face of the Blogosphere, you’ll know it happened again and I’ll be somewhere, making up with my family and trying to catch up in all the areas of my life that I have fallen behind in.
