The complaint I hear time and time again from my friends and colleagues about living in Canberra is that there’s nothing to do. This never ceases to amuse me, because when I ask them if they’re going to various events the answer is always “I didn’t know it was on.” I’ve realised that the problem is that they never bother to look to see what’s happening, so they just assume nothing is going on. So I’ve started deliberately looking for upcoming events and passing the information onto my friends and co-workers, and I thought why not expand the audience a bit. We may not get all the huge concerts and so on that Sydney and the other cities get, but we do have a lot worth checking out.
Note: Sorry for the cryptic title of the post. It’s explained further down in the post. I just felt that it sums up my current state of mind and thought patterns pretty well.
Well. My writer’s block continues. Sometimes I wonder if one of these days it’ll start and just never stop again. When I think about the fact that I didn’t write anything for nearly six years, it doesn’t seem that unlikely to me. In the mean time, I try to keep pushing myself to write to try and avoid that outcome. Nothing I’ve written in the last week or so is really worth publishing though. So instead it’s time for a bit more rambling from me.
