I'm a chartered accountant and I love it. There's no better profession for a cautious, neurotic control freak who likes to eat her smarties symmetrically by colour. But I started life as an English major and still love to read and write. Being an accountant doesn't lend itself to stimulating conversation about philosophy or life in general; in fact, interesting people tend to run away if I mention my love for Excel spreadsheets.
So I was really excited about blogging. Finally a chance to sound my barbaric yawp and see who hollers back! I have to say the experience has been fantastic and sad. I'm writing regularly again and my blog prods me to spend time reflecting about things other than the next task on my to-do list. But...I already had a diary and I didn't need another one. I'd hoped blogging would involve more of a dialogue, and it's a bit dull yawping to myself. That said, I've found some great blogs that I love reading and I'll probably keep writing mine anyway. Just feeling a little cranky tonight, I guess.
