Centurion

Happy birthday to this blog!!
Actually I've been blogging longer than that, but I've decided to celebrate my blog's bday on my 100th post. Yey to me!

Wow - 100 posts. If each posts took 15 minutes to do (which they don't - more like 40 minutes average!!) thats about 25 hours! Thats a lot of time spent in front of the computer without getting paid!

Which brings back the question why I bother with this blog.

Partly because I'm a geek and I love working with computers. Partly because I want to diary episodes of my life. Partly because I want others to see the other me they wouldn't see otherwise. Partly because this activity keeps the creative side of my brain ticking - which would otherwise rot from my day job.

But the primary reason why I blog (and the main reason why I started blogging) was because I wanted to reinvent myself.

I wasn't happy with myself last year, which prompted a new job, a new car, a new haircut, a new lifestyle (no, its not what you're thinking.... i'm still straight)

Funnily enough, today, I'm still trying to re-invent myself. I'm still experimenting with new things. Trying new hairstyles (i'm ala mo-hawk/mullet atm), new ventures (i've set up an online business!), I even got myself new testicles spectacles.

It hasn't always been good, but I'm discovering heaps of new things. Probably why I'm always finding that theres not enough time in the world.

And it seems that it doesn't matter how many times I try to re-invent myself. Sooner or later, I find myself falling back to the same old me.

And I'm cool with that.
