Hi everyone and welcome to a new blog. I will try not to rant much but I can’t promise anything.

This week started off badly. I knew it would with Monday being Valentines Day. I am aware I ranted about this last week so wont say too much this time. I don’t mind people being romantic but Valentines Day does seem to be an evil way of making single people feel fed up and feeling guilty that they dislike Valentines Day. Anyway I got through the day mainly because I was so busy at work that I didn’t have time to think about the day.I did get an e-card from a friend saying ‘Just get yourself out there’. Which is true I do need to do that. This weeks episode of Glee didn’t help either. Normally Glee cheers me up but not this week on Valentines Day – it was not what I needed. I hope all of you reading this enjoyed the day though and I don’t mean to cast a shadow over your happiness.

This week I also had a Christmas dinner. Now I know its slightly late but was actually rescheduled from December due to the heavy snow we had. It was work related and it was good and was more just a fancy meal rather than Christmas lunch.Thankfully there were no Christmas decorations or Christmas music but I was half expecting it. It was also good to talk to other people who do the type of work that I do at other libraries.

Like everyone I have up and down weeks and this week was low week. Yes Valentines Day didn’t help but it wasn’t the main reason. I said that this year was going to be my year and that I was going to try new things and change my life  I suppose. 2 months in and 2011 is still slow. This is getting me down I suppose and there is only me who can do anything about it. I look at other people my age and think ‘Wow they really have done so much’. I suppose my friends advice just getting myself out there applies to all aspects of my life. I suppose the thing that is holding me back sometimes is that what happens if by doing so I push people who I care about and respect away and they wont be there when I need them. I know this sounds silly because if they are really close to me and care they will be there anyway but it is just how I feel. I sometimes feel that I am in a comfort zone. This can’t last for ever and its better that I do something about it as it won’t do me any good. I’ve been there before. Hopefully this week will be better.

So until then. Bye for now.
