I’ve decided to start a blog because I want a place where I can put down random thoughts, or not so random thoughts, and perhaps gain a better understanding of how my own mind works. It may work, or it may not. I might even forget this blog exists, but for now I hope to use this medium to sort out a few things in my head.
Right now I’m 44 years old. I’m in a common-law relationship, and have 3 children, ages 20, 18 and 16. My two youngest are autistic. That in and of itself makes for an interesting life. I work for a federal crown corporation. I’m a bit on the geeky side – I like to read and play video games, though I didn’t really start gaming until my 30’s. However, I’ve ALWAYS liked to read. I don’t do as much reading now, which makes me sad, because it’s a great stress-reliever. I’ve found that I’m gaming more to relieve that stress or keep myself occupied, and read less. I should really try to find a better balance, but I’m not quite there yet.
I’m not writing this for anyone but myself, really. I just want to write things down and see what transpires. Should be quite the experiment.
