Suddenly, but not quite suddenly, it’s been a year since my first post on this blog; a year since the New Leaf sprang to life.
Let’s see what I wrote on that first post:
Today… is the first day… of a somewhat new era.
Although i still have unfinished business of my past life, the gateway has been past.
Today, i start a new job, in a sort of new life, because through the past few months, so many things have changed around me and within me, and so i call today a new life. When before i worked at various small companies.. today i start working at a relatively big company, in a big building and all. The prospect of a new job, a new life alone is a bit intimidating for me, not to mention the trappings that go with the job.
Suddenly, i feel a wave of loneliness overcoming, as this new experience, this new life, comes with no one to share it with. And, just for a minute there while i was on the bus, i got a glimpse into the future, the monotony, the routine, of going to the same office, going to the same cubicle… and the apparent emptiness of it all.
So with this new life… i start something i’ve never really done before, which is… start a blog, and share with the world my feelings and thoughts.
Let’s see where the day carries me.
I’ll be pondering these words tonight… and thinking on how much a year really changes things.
