Heres how it is

I started this blog to practise my writing. I wasn't sure what I wanted to be and a journalist was one of the options. Now it's not really an option anymore. I did some research into the jobs I was considering and i've decided that writing really isn't for me. I wish it were, but everything I write is so mediocre.I'm like Scarlett Johansson in Lost In Translation. I think I can get that B in english but thats the extent of it. That said I do really like this blog and I want to keep going with it.I might start posting more pictures as that's what i'm trying to focus on. I just wanted to explain my absense and tell you I'm not disappearing forever,just until I think things through.

Deciding your future is no fun

Bike dreams

As much as I want to be I will never be one of those cute european women flying around the city on their bikes.This is due to my insane irrational fear of cycling in the city. Give me a bike and a quiet country road completly devoid of cars or people and I'll be off, but if there are cars in the vicinity, I freak out. I don't really know why or when this happened. I had a good start with a little green bike decorated with dinosaurs but when the training wheels came off, everything fell apart. It might be due to my total lack of ability or balance but that hasn't held me back in other aspects of my life. So until I pluck up the courage to go velib-ing around the city, I will just have try and make walking cool.
