Yesterday I had a sudden desire to let someone stick a needle through my ear.

Six years ago I told my mum I wanted to have 'this bit' pierced. I was very chuffed with it. It made me feel a bit different. Brave. Older. But then it got a bit yuck and eventually my body rejected the ring and forced it out, leaving an odd notch.

I am hoping that this one will stay put.

Find my other shoe

I have been in a funk all day. All year. All last year.

This blog - MY blog - is an attempt for me to have something solid to work with.

The emphasis on this being MY blog - I have been reading blogs, obsessing over blogs, for years. It is draining and time consuming. And up until now I have never committed to having my own blog.

I am not sure what I want this blog to contain. Photos? Self-conscious twitterings about my life? Attempts at 'randomness'?

I am learning already that it is very easy to begin sentences with 'I'. And that I am going to have a great deal of trouble writing something that is not self-conscious and wanky.

So. This is me trying to find my other shoe. With both shoes, perhaps I can put both feet back on the ground and get on with my life.

Sounds boring eh?
