Welcome to September! As the new month ticks over, I can’t help but think about things I’m missing right now here in little old New Zealand. As silly and as influenced by the changing season here though they may be, these are things that are on my mind right now..
Writing – I’ve really been neglecting my writing. Not to say I haven’t written, but if you take away things written in Word and Outlook… then yeah, I haven’t written. I have a load of topic ideas I’ve scribbled down, and some I’ve started writing, but none which have reached any sort of publishable state. Technical debt, jQuery templating, mobile development using Appcelerator/Titanium, and many other things all feature in the drafts folder.
Test Cricket – yes, we have a Rugby World Cup about to kick off, and yet I find myself missing a good game of test cricket.
Blueberries – this is what makes me think that some of this is seasonal. As we leave winter, and head into spring, it's been a long time without fresh blueberries on my morning cereal!
Feeling like I have free time. Even though I do have a lot of free time, I’ve lost the ability to feel like that’s the case. It’s time to take that back, as really, it’s a feeling, and nothing more.
Life is to short to not feel like you have time to do the things you want – and it’s too short to go without fresh blueberries for too long.
