The Living Room (Introduction)

I’ve had this idea in my head for a minute; and like every idea I’ve had in my head it just stayed there. I don’t know if I should call whatever makes stuff stay in my head and not come out to the real world procrastination- that’ll be doing the “force” a disservice (yes it feels like a force). It’ll be more aptly described as some kind of paralysis.

Anyhow this “force” keeps me from doing anything useful and propels me into an infinite loop of tea drinking, eating and watching what may be considered by the unenlightened as trashy reality TV. It almost feels like I’m genuinely scared of doing anything remotely useful. The Funmi that is suppressed by this force in my head should be working out, writing or learning something beneficial; instead she’s stuck images of Mimi Faust and Joseline pouring drinks on each other.

Back to what this post is meant to be about. I basically want ‘The Living Room’ to be about sharing the extraordinary parts of ordinary people’s lives. It’s inspired by how important I think it is to know nobody is really alone when it comes to experiences. Although when we go through things we’re unlikely to think “Oh Mary went through this so everything is fine”, I feel the few times we connect with someone else’s story are really important in our journey through life.

Still not sure about the exact form this is going to take, but I want the first post to be done in October. When in October? I don’t know either; accountability jinxes stuff for people like me
