Things I’ve been thinking about

16 03 2012

This may be complete crap. You’ve been warned.

I have been getting lost in my thoughts quite frequently during recent times, during 24 hours of air travel, at work and whilst wandering aimlessly through Paris.

I like to record things I think about, because I enjoy the challenge of working out the answer to the question I ask myself, and may like to refer to it later.

I would like to buy a thesaurus. In english. I would like to expand my vocabulary, as I think it would excite my brain a touch, and in turn, my life. I have been losing words as they vaporise into the french equivalent and at times I find myself searching for words I’ve accessed easily for 28 years.We’ll see how that goes. Swimmingly, I hope.

I wonder about rubbish. Literally. I worry that one day we will all be neck deep in garbage and will succumb by way of drowning. I think about sticky tape, rubber from car tyres, exhausted pens, old clothes.

I wonder what I would say to my school bully, should I encounter him on the street. Would I like to land my first ever punch straight in his face? Or would I find something witty and intelligent to say about my achievements, use success as the best revenge. I would really love to do really well in life to counter the fact that six years of my life were a living hell (more on this later) and that it actually pushed me towards success. I think that all of these ideas could work in a team attack.

I wonder if I will ever have children to nurture and guide with the same methods used by my parents and grandparents, to create the best childhood memories.

I keep the hilarious and delightfully warm memory of my mum reaching up at me for a hug at the airport before leaving Melbourne last time, because she is so cute and tiny. It brings a few happy tears every time.

I think that at 18 I never would have believed that at ten years later I’d be in bed on a Friday night in Paris, writing a blog with my newly pedicured feet up.
