What you reading?

My research is going well. Right now my focus is sociopathy and I’m currently reading Confessions of a Sociopath by M.E. Thomas, which may or may not be a clever work of fiction. It’s not a book I wanted to bring to work with me, might raise a few eyebrows! But I feel embarrassed, you know? I feel like I can’t really answer truthfully what I’m doing when I’m taking notes or reading books that seem a little out of the norm. If I say ‘I’m researching a book’, I imagine people would look at me like I’ve told them I’m hoping to break Hollywood!


30 in 30 days: day thirty – my birthday

Well, I made it! I know sometimes it seemed that I was clutching at straws trying to find new things to do, and it’s true. I’m happy with what I’ve accomplished. I realised the other night that I’m in a much better place turning thirty than I was when I turned twenty.

When I was turning twenty I was a broke college student, I’d just lost my job, I had a car I couldn’t afford to insure and therefore couldn’t drive, I was single and text-flirting with a guy who would later turn out to be an asshole. At thirty I have a full-time job, I’m engaged, I have a car that’s fully insured and I’m licensed to drive, and I just got mortgage approval. I guess you could say life begins today!

I actually did do something new today, I started researching for a story I’m hoping to write. I love writing notes and I wrote four and a half pages, my poor hand is killing me! But mostly I relaxed because I booked the day off work (which I’m getting paid for), so I’m off to a good start.

Thank you for your support these past thirty days and I hope you’ll stick with me in this new decade of my life. Roll on the thirties!
