I'm blogging so much lesser and lesser these days. I've got tons of stuff on my mind to write and complain about but everytime I sit in front of my laptop, the mind becomes a total blank. I want to tell you about the dental supplies project I'm about to do, I want to tell you about the idiots I'm surrounded with at work everyday, I want to tell you about the running shoe buying fetish I seem to have developed but everytime I try to write them all down, nothing but rubbish turns comes that doesn't even see the light of day.
Time or rather lack of time is also another factor. I'm stuck with so much work and then there is my running passion to indulge in that by the time everything is done, there really isn't enough time for me to sit and blog much these days. 24 hours in a day just isn't enough to do everything you want to these days.
When I do find the time to blog like today, I'm a total blank. I can't even seem to compose proper sentences or think of something more interesting that this gibberish I'm writing right now. I'm also distracted by the beautiful weather out there that is simply crying out for me to put on my running shoes and run the evening away. But then, it's my compulsory rest day and I really need the break.
There was a time about a year ago, when I would have something to blog about everyday. I would be able to write post after post and for those of you who has been reading my blog from way back, you'd also know that I could be extremely long winded with my posts. Now, trying to write three short paragraphs seem to be an insurmountable task. Maybe a nice long break from blogging might help clear this 'writers block' I'm facing, not that I could write for nuts, mind you.
Anyways, all that aside, the year seems to be heading to a close pretty soon. It's already November and I can hear them Christmas bells already :D In fact, I've seen a Christmas tree being put up only yesterday. Christmas is always my favourite time of year, if only we had snow over here, it would make it even better :D But snow or no snow, I'm looking forward to Christmas.
I'm also looking forward to the new year cos this year I'm planning to do something totally different to usher in the new year. I'm going to take part in the Newton 25K run slated for the 1st of January 2012. I can't think of a better way to usher in the new year than taking part in a race with the wife :D I haven't registered for it yet, I'm planning to do it soon and I hope there's still slots available for it when I do register.
I heard that the route for this event is pretty challenging with hills upon hills that will be a mental as well as physical challenge to complete. Like I said, what better way to start the new year than torturing yourself on a totally challenging 25K race route ... LOL!
