#BEDM Day 12: What Do I Miss?
“What do you miss?”
I miss only working part-time with no responsibilities, all I had to do was turn up, tidy stuff and serve customers. These days all I seem to do is take phone calls from people wanting me to do things, on top of the normal things that I have to make sure get done every night.
I miss having the financial freedom to pretty much do whatever I want, whenever I want. If I have social engagements in the calendar I have to plan money exceptionally carefully. And one thing I am shit at is planning things carefully. I am very much looking forward to returning to something more like a normal life in about two years.
I actually miss the structure and requirements of formal education, not that I took a great deal of notice of them at the time. I guess part of the reason I’m enjoying these blogs is that I am forced to think about something and write my thoughts down, which doesn’t much happen elsewhere in my life any more.
I miss people who are in my life either very infrequently or not at all, either because they live great distances away or because we lost touch.
I miss my Dad, who died of cancer at a sickeningly early age.
All these things taken together, it sounds very much like I miss being 20! Which is true, I do, but as I said in an earlier blog, I’m not one for dwelling on the past. The future is waiting. Allons-y!
