Step 1: We can have lots of fun
Step 2: There’s so much we can do
Step 3: It’s just you and me
Step 4: I can give you more
Step 5: Don’t you know that the time has arrived
C’mon New Kids on The Block, those aren’t even steps! Not a single one provides any value in describing a process I should follow. It sounds like I’ll have a good time though, whatever it is I’m doing.
So I’ve decided to start a blog. Why? Well at the moment I’m unemployed and looking for work in a country where I don’t really speak the language and it’s starting to get really cold outside. So I guess it’s something to ensure that Melissa doesn’t come home to find me in the corner rocking myself, whistling “Step by Step”
More seriously though, I thought it’d be a nice way to document my goings-on and my life in a new environment, and to sort of keep a journal of my travels around this side of the world. I also figured it might be a better place to post the kinds of photos I like to take, and leave Facebook for selfies and food snaps.
So this is Step 1. I’m hoping my motivation lasts until at least Step 5, so I can be sure that the time has indeed arrived. (Huughh!)
P.s: I find it kind of hilarious that Donnie Wahlberg was in New Kids on The Block. It’s just hard to imagine the balding, bad-ass police detective and Tom Sellick’s son in Blue Bloods once bopped and juked to the delight of screaming girls everywhere. Also, the Wahlberg resemblance is uncanny. I saw Mark Wahlberg when I visited New York in October. He had just finished filming something in front of the NY Public Library, and he was strutting down Fifth Ave flanked by 6 massive bodyguards (and dozens of photographers and fans). One of his bodyguards basically fell into a trashcan, it was awesome.
