I might be back

For a million and one reasons I’ve gotten rid of the blog. With my absolute inability to just get rid of things, you will notice that I only deleted the last year of my life from it. I’m not good at getting rid of things, I try and it just doesn’t seem to work, so I haven’t, I just deleted the posts that annoyed me.

I’m not going to say that I’ll never write in this again because I don’t know that, and I can’t promise that old posts might suddenly reappear as I go through them better, but for the time being it’s gone.

There are so many ways I want to express myself, and I love the blog because it lets me and I only have to write one entry at a time, it’s so much easier than a book, but it’s more of an unhealthy and egocentric kind of release. I write because I feel the need to have my feelings confirmed by others, that I’m doing the right thing, that I’m not, and I shouldn’t need that sort of confirmation. I DON’T need that sort of confirmation.

I started writing a blog almost five years ago now. I’ve had quite a few, and eventually delete them for very little reason; maybe I’ll create another in replacement eventually. This one has lasted longest.

For now I say a temporary goodbye, I don’t know what will happen and I’m not sure that I can properly say it yet. So think of it as a “see you later,” a sort of half unsure “I might be back.”


I'll miss reading you Hattie. But I understand your need to move on. If you do start up something new, please let me know. And keep your hand in with the writing, in any way you fancy, in a notebook if not in the blog. You have a gift with words, dont let the wind take it from you. Encourage yourself to write from different perspectives, about different things, then you might feel less annoyed when you read them back. But ultimately most writing is egocentric, so you cant always fight that. Best wishes for whatever future you choose or chooses you. jem ~xxx~

Good luck, Hattie. I'll miss reading you as well.

Go easy on the drink and hard on the jerks, and hopefully we'll be hearing from you again, sometime.

"You can check out any time.
But you can never leave."

Not my words, the words of cocaine-loving seventies rockers The Eagles. Not sure what they meant by that, actually.

All the best, Hattie.


PS. "I might back"? WTF?

About me

  • An albatross can fly for thousands of miles without getting tired. I've always thought that love is similar to flying, therefore we should aspire to be like the albatross.

    I don't know if I can do that. So far I haven't been so lucky. But one day I'll test my wings with someone, and flying won't be so hard after all. Or so painful.
My profile

Save the Albatrosses


    * In 2001 one New Zealand fishing boat killed over 300 seabirds in just one trip, while fishing for ling.
    * Each year over 300,000 seabirds are killed by longline fishing.
    * Over the past 60 years some albatross populations have declined by 90%.
    * Annually around 10,000 albatross and petrels are caught in New Zealand waters alone.
