After 7 continuous days of blogging, I can say that I’ve reached the first milestone. Even though I had, and still have, a lot of motivation to make this daily blogging work, I have to say that it is more difficult than I thought. Daily writing isn’t that hard, but it is more that I expect something of my blogs. The bar is higher than when I would write only for myself. Today I thought that maybe I should let that thought go. Let’s just focus on writing daily first. But it always has been quality over quantity for me, so it is hard to make it go the other way. The thing is though, and I just thought of that, that I think that first focusing on quantity will improve the quality of my blogs.
Freezing my hands off
Why is it so cold tonight?
Longing for the summer
Today, on my fifth day of blogging daily, I’m finding it hard to write. This Friday is the transition to the blogs, that I am planning to write in the weekend. Tomorrow, after I get home from work, I want to try something completely different. I want to write a longer blog on both Sunday and Monday. I still have this energy to write daily, but today I also felt the urge to do something different with my free time. But I decided to show up anyway. The words don’t show up on the screen as easy as they did yesterday, but a blog will be written. I just can’t promise that it will be good.
Every single working day I have around 4.5 hours of free time. That becomes more when you count the time that I spent in public transport. Let’s say that I have 5.5 hours of free time then. I need to wash myself and get dressed, which almost always takes half an hour. I also need to eat and prepare breakfast and dinner. Let’s say that this combined takes about an hour, only because I don’t always eat breakfast. I also always need to have a little walk to/from work, and when I can travel from the right train station, I need cycle a little bit as well. This will take about 40 minutes to an hour from the 5.5 hours as well. I now deducted 2.5 hours from the 5.5 hours, which means I have 3 hours of real free time. Even though it doesn’t seem much, it still is free time. This time I can spend anyway I want.
For two days in a row now, as soon as I get home, I see my neighbors. The first thing they seem to want to do, is talk negative about the apartment building instantly. Not even a Happy New Year. No, they want tor transfer their negative thoughts to me. Fun thing is, is that I am talking about two different neighbors, living in two different apartments. They are complaining about other neighbors or about the building hallway isn’t clean, whatever there is to complain. But you know what? I don’t even care about what they’re telling me. As soon as I get home from work, I just want to head inside, and eat. That’s it.
