Thoughts For The New Year

January rolls around once again, along with the encouragement of new goals and a fresh sense of motivation. You know, those things that typically follow a period of Christmas rest, although it would be safe to say that this time, our state of relaxation may have been somewhat led astray. New plans rushed in place of those that many of us had worked on and looked forward to for most of the year. Only then to be swiftly followed by yet another lockdown. You can’t blame anyone for reaching out to 2021 as a complete restart.

April has been a busy month. I have moved into my new flat, suffered without internet, borrowed loads of money, visited home briefly. I’ve also generally been lacking motivation, which bloody sucks.
BUT I AM BACK…again. I have a few things to write up, for example, at the beginning of April I took a trip to the Lush Spa in Poole, so keep an eye out for a well overdue piece on my experience – see now I have to do it. I was always going to write about it, but things have got in the way, I have been very distracted, but now I’m back into the groove of writing. I’m even trying to write more for a site called Vulture Hound, they reached out to me a little while back and to say I’ve been a little rubbish at contributing to the site is an understatement, but I’m really starting to miss writing (and well, the opportunities they have to offer) so I’m pretty excited to get back to it. I had planned to write something for Up The Monitors, a site run by a few pals from uni, however the more I worked on that piece in particular the more I wanted to slap that narrative of me in the face. I am hoping to come up with something for them too…at some point, I swear.

That doesn’t mean I’ll be writing here any less, I’ll be aiming to post on here regularly, but will still be working out my routine. I will also continue doing a regular music related post, but instead of isolating it to Familiarise Yourself (which I may extend to the other categories on here), I will be keeping it in line with #musicmondays – at first I wanted to do something different, post about music in my own time. I soon realised I was being dumb and #musicmondays is exactly what I need to be getting involved with.

I just wanted to give an update, mainly because it’ll make me feel better, I mean, I don’t even know if anyone even cares (apart from my Mum, who moaned at me for not writing on here recently – sorry!). Like I said, I’m currently working on some posts and will be looking at new ideas almost all the time – keep an eye out!
