Perspective

13 Mar

Oh gosh. A whole month since I last posted, sorry! I’m really not very good at this; I need someone to remind me.

I think that yesterday’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan sort of puts everything in your life into perspective. I’ve had Sky News on continuously both yesterday and today, and the footage is just unbelievable. This website has some really incredible photographs on it too, take a look. It sounds clichéd to say it, but it really doesn’t look real, and I can’t imagine what people who have been affected are going through. I find myself being quite intrigued by the idea that Mother Nature is something we just can’t control, and I wonder what it would be like if something so devastating happened to Britain – would we cope? Probably not. I wouldn’t know what to do in an earthquake, and even if I did, I’d probably still panic. As more pictures come in, and further developments are reported, it makes all my problems seem quite trivial.

Food for thought, huh?

See, even now, I’m wondering whether I should talk about other things, because after that little speech about the disaster, me whinging on about the noise downstairs really does seem insignificant! [It is loud though, I cannot wait to move into our house.]

Oh, also, I’ve recently been added to the UCLan student blogs page so if you’ve found me through that, say hi!

I’ll leave it there for now. I’ve managed to tick most things off my to-do list today, so I can finally crawl into bed and get my iPod on full volume to drown out the noise and hopefully get some sleep and wake up motivated to get some work done! [Or just watch TV whilst thinking about doing work.]

Promise I’ll be back soon!
