Tens of Things

My renewed interest in this blog comes from an idea I had in that pre-sleep haze one gets. I get anxious when writing a new post because my mind is a constant, critical editor. A post that should only take five minutes may take twenty. Or more. I wanted to find a common theme that would keep me focused on topics and I came up with the idea of lists. My mother raised me on list-making. She was raised by her mother on list-making. There is a vague strand of OCD passed down through the generations and when I feel disconnected or unmotivated I find that list-making can ground me.

This blog will be lists. I will aim for ten objects to each list. The topics can be anything. You can even suggest topics if you like, but currently I have a list of things I would like to list.

This is starting to go down a weird rabbit hole so I’ll just leave this here.

  1. Sounds interesting. Just hope you don’t ever get stressed by trying to think of “good” lists. Just be you and post what makes you feel cool. Cos you are:)

    And this is Michael, if you don’t remember.
