It has taken me a while to get to this blog, which is kinda ridiculous. I’m not actually doing much with my days lately; unemployed and broke lend themselves to boredom and yet I can’t seem to focus much on writing at this time. I spend much of my free time reading books and news as well as reading analysis’ on both (though honestly mostly news; I usually only get into book analysis’ when reading Shakespeare’s plays,) so it’s hard to find the desire to write about those on top of it all. I can’t afford to bake as much as I’d like, can’t afford to travel, can’t afford more skeins of yarn than what I’ve got. Hopefully I’ll get a job soon.
Until then I’ve decided to write-up memoir/essays about the last six months while I was in Denmark working as an au pair. I kept a personal (private) blog while there, but most of what I wrote in it was of the “and then I took the kids to the park, here are some pics” variety, and not actually all that interesting to read. I can’t guarantee that I will go in chronological order when typing these up, so I promise at the very least to give approximate dates.
So. I’m going to go apply for a couple jobs now (Publix here I come) and then later tonight hopefully I’ll get around to typing up what made me want to au pair in the first place.
