It’s still January

January is always a mixed bag for me. On the one hand.. yay it’s a new year! I can make plans for the coming months so I have all the things to look forward to and oh my god look there is a slither of light left in the sky when I leave work because spring is on the way!

Procrastination and apathy

It’s the middle of April and I’m still not sure where all this time has gone. It feels like it was only last week I was getting excited for my trip to Scotland but now that’s happened and I’m feeling lost again.
