There’s always something that has to be done, a troublesome list of things to do that keeps on growing. This isn’t living life to the fullest, this just feels like a struggle to keep from drowning. Money is the same, the decent pay packet that comes every fortnight just seems to evaporate by the time the next comes along. So, it’s time for change, it’s time to throw all my shit in the air and see what comes down and where it all lands. Continue reading “The Beginning of a New Adventure…”
