just can't keep it to myself

The complete lack of inspiration

Much to my shock, I have recently discovered that more than one person actually reads this blog and has noticed that I haven't updated it, and not all of them are my boyfriend. As they love to say in the Spiderman films, with power comes responsibility, and in my case, with readers comes writing, which lately I have felt unable to do. It's conflicting- while I've been incredibly busy, with training for rowing practically every day, and attempting to maintain a social life, a relationship, and a stitch and bitch, I just haven't had the urge to write about any of these things. I have toyed with moaning about shopping or something, but no-one really wants to hear me whine about how sometimes my size doesn't fit, or isn't even there. No-one also wants to hear me moan about how much I dislike translating Old English and WHY GOD WHY did I subject myself to this torture not once, but twice?! Although, on the flip side, while no-one wants to hear me moan about stuff, I highly doubt that anyone wants to hear about the positive stuff in my life either. "I have a boyfriend and friends and some magic pills to make my hair grow" also fails to make good reading. So, alas, here is my trauma. Hopefully I'll think of something of note to update about soon..

So this is the new year..

.. and as well as my two resolutions as stated below, I'm also part of LJ communities based on writing in a paper journal every day, and a challenge to read 50 books and watch 50 movies this year. My my, I'm going to be busy.. and this is before attempting to actually do some work on my degree, run a Stitch and Bitch and maintain a social life, as well as carry out the list of "things I must do before I'm 20". This is an idea I stole off Schmez and Nina, and no, I'm not going to share publicly what's on it.

I'm very excited about the new year, in general. 2005, for me, was.. erm.. not great. I lost a parent, was rushed to two different hospitals in an ambulance, got dumped for the first time, was assaulted by a pervert, had to restart the year at uni, you name it; if it was bad, it seems like it happened. Thankfully, if I have anything going for me, it's my positive attitude. It could have been far, FAR worse - I didn't lose my home, I never wanted for anything to eat, I didn't have to suffer any natural disasters, I'm in good health, and I'm still at Oxford. I have a lot of great things coming my way. I can just feel it. Look out 2006; kate and her ego have arrived. Heh.
