“PETRICHOR” – THE SCENT OF RAIN ON DRY EARTH
I’m a thirty-something woman originally from a small, wet country but living under a hot sun, many thousands of miles away from home.
I’ve spent most of my twenties and thirties trying to “find myself” but, hmmm, I haven’t quite managed it. I tried to be a teacher at one point, and moved to a small village to teach, as that was the only place I could find a job. However, that was possibly the most horrendous experience of my life, so I moved back to civilization as quickly as possible.
By day, I now work in a cubicle as a customer service agent; by night, I harbour dreams of singing and writing professionally, but I seem to be too scared to take the plunge into either of those fields.
Maybe one of these days I’ll get over my crippling perfectionism, non-existent self-esteem, self-doubt and fear of failure, and will actually be happy, creative and unfulfilled. Until then you will just have to put up with all of my depressing blog posts. Sorry!
