So, I’m back at the blogging again. I suppose I’m saying that kind of loosely, considering my last attempt at blogging lasted for 3 days and 4 posts. This time, I intend to keep up a bit better.
So here’s a little about me – I’m a 30-something living in the heart of Toronto. I try to go to restaurants, parties at obscure venues, the impromptu trip to New York City and other social things people my age are supposed to do as often as possible. At the same time, I try to be mindful of less interesting things, like getting enough exercise, not eating several servings of poutine a week and keeping my place clean and clutter-free. Which leads me to the theme of my blog – making smart choices. The idea came to me before I started this blog. Like most people in January, I was thinking of what I wanted my New Year’s resolutions to be. My ideas were the usual suspects – go to the gym more often, eat a serving of vegetables with every meal, clean up my place at least once a month – all things I was pretty bad at keeping up on a regular basis. But then I got to thinking, what’s the point of making plans that were sure to dissipate after a few weeks? And why do my plans have to play out in the afterglow of an arbitrary period in time? So I thought I’d take a different tack – I will create new habits instead! As the Oxford Dictionary puts it, a habit is “a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up” http://oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/habit. So, this is exactly what I’m going to do. And it’s not solely going to be about mundane things that no one finds interesting to read about. I aim to engage, get the conversation going. I’m pretty excited about it!
Well, that’s it for now, as I must attend to one of my habits now – reading. Okay, I’ve always read, but I’m trying to do it more often. Leave me to it!
