Over the past few days, the Schizosomething Reading Kit™ has been deployed to full effect in St James’s Park. It feels like we’ve had a long hot Summer and it’s not even the end of April. I was praying that the weather would hold so I could continue to loll about in the sun reading all day, but the forecast says we’re going back to typical April showers.
Regrettably, utilising the Schizosomething Reading Kit™ is about all I have been able to manage. Updating this blog has been way beyond me, though this probably doesn’t matter. I looked at my WordPress stats earlier. I’m taking talking to yourself to a whole new level.
I’m working on a post entitled Wankergram, as when I’m not reading, I divide my time between calling myself a wanker and aimlessly scrolling through Instagram. The problem is, Instagram is so preoccupying. Just keeping up with Alexa Chung is a full-time job. There’s @alexachung, @alexachungstagram and @alexchungaesthetic, along with many other fan sites. I know she’s famously not just a pretty face, but how does this woman find the time to design her frocks?
I really need to cease beating myself up. Did I mention I did a course on mindfulness at the London Buddhist Centre in Bethnal Green? The monk said you improve your mental health by filling yourself with loving kindness, not by calling yourself a cunt. Well, they may have not been his exact words, but the sentiment was pretty much the same.
This is a brief post for people who haven’t been checking my pulse on Instagram or Twitter. I plan to complete Wankergram soon. Why not sign-up to this blog by email (box to the left)? I can absolutely guarantee that you won’t be bombarded.
