A Little Bit About Forcing Issues

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged about anything, but that hasn’t been without trying.  I have 3 or 4 other posts sitting here that have been started, but they’re such crap, I doubt they will be finished.  Even this post has been started three times, and more-so, the title has been changed twice to match the content.  It hasn’t really been writer’s block, as such, but more just not being able to.  Basically, I’m pretty useless.  So, here I am, forcing it out, making it happen, no matter what, not (too) worried that the end product might be crappy.  Just doing it. These last few weeks have had me happy.  Like really, proper happy.  It’s weird because a friend that I had met on Twitter saw me last night and said I was quite a miserable person.  I didn’t really like that, but it was good to get the external perspective.  (I guess).  But, in reality, it didn’t really bother me.

I have not been feeling myself for the past few weeks, and I’m not really sure why yet.  Pretty sure it’s a combination of things as a whole, as it most often is, but that doesn’t mean I should be beaten.  However, the most pressing issue eating at me right now is failure. Twitter has shown me a lot of things, and one of those things is how bloody successful a lot of young South Africans are. Don’t get me wrong, these people have worked damn hard to be where they are, (I presume so anyway), and we should all be so lucky to have that skill and motivation to get there.  I haven’t had the easiest road along the way, but I hate...
