We’re here again; me starting over. I think this is my third or fourth time giving this blog a chance, and I haven’t had any success before. I don’t mean ‘success’ as in it being a blog that generates a lot of views or clicks, I mean ‘success’ as in me being able to stick to it for a longer time.

Maybe it’s because it’s a public platform, when I blogged privately on LiveJournal (years ago, I sure miss that platform – so sad to see it having died down the way it has) I had no issues producing one or two entries a day. It was my journal, and I would like to re-read it all one day but it was a dark time in my life and I’m currently not interested in diving back into that pool and relive the memories. I kept that blog private for a reason, it was a place where I could say whatever I wanted and feel safe doing so. What I didn’t realise was that some of those who had access to it judged me for my feelings and we ended up drifting apart… I was such an immature person back then, and man was I depressed. My depression was so bad, I can’t judge others for not being able to handle it.

I’m still depressed, I’m not too sure I can ever fully ‘be cured’ from that, but I’ve learned how to deal with it over the years and I’m far from as bad as I used to be. These days I’m more of a ‘glass half full’ kind of person, and I very much like it that way. I don’t like Debbie Downers and I don’t intend to make this a blog about depression, but it is a part of me and will show its face now and then.

So, exactly what is the purpose of this blog? To be honest, it has no real purpose. I did promise my ex co-worker David that I was going to blog about music I like, because it was something we used to discuss a lot during our shifts and I constantly dropped named of songs and artists he should listen to. I told him I could start putting my recommendations on my blog instead, that way he could find it all easily and I could link stuff while rambling on about what I like, facts etc etc. I do tend to ramble when I get excited. Bah, who am I kidding; I ramble about pretty much anything, excited or not.

Now, what kind of music might I talk about? It could be anything, because unlike with my food I’m pretty much an omnivore when it comes to music. I don’t keep up with ‘current’ music as much these days, most of it bores me if I’m being brutally honest, but maybe some of my content could be interesting, I don’t know?

There won’t be just music on this blog, though, I actually have a notebook filled with topics and ideas I want to write about, so it could be good. Only time will tell!


P.S. Told you I ramble.


G is for Gabi.

I'm Gabi, I live in Sweden and have a rather normal life. I have more books than I have time to read and I play video games when I really should be sleeping.

I guess that's not really a problem, though, since I happen to have insomnia so it's not like I can sleep even if I would like to.

This blog has no real direction, it's not 'lifestyle', 'fashion', 'humour' or 'political'. It's simply just... my brain.
