The day job.

I have just spent some time going through some other blogs and looking at the ‘about’ sections. One thing that really stuck out is the number of times people explained how they were one thing by day and ‘a creative type’ by night. Never before has the phrase ‘day job’ stuck out to me before, As a fresh graduate I admit that my view of life is still very limited and seen through rose tinted glasses and I refuse to believe that you cannot live your dream 24/7. Why is it wrong or seen as over ambitious to chase your dreams? What is it with people claiming to be realistic? When I was in my early teens I was so full of dreams I practically did live mine. I spent so much time lost in my daydreams and meditating on the kind of life I would have when I was older … and then life hit.

Well today I have had a eureka moment and decided that I do not want to get sucked into the grown up world of being realistic. Since when did dream wrecking become a prerequisite for being an adult? I mean a couple of centuries ago something like the internet would have been absolutely crazy but look at us now. I want to look back on my life and smilingly say ‘Look at me now’.

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together.

Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: My literature blog: NMx
