Leaving you tomorrow

At the work the other day I was lamenting the fact that my mum’s birthday present is still on back-order and that I wouldn’t be able to send her anything on time, what with Easter being in the way and all. To which I received the reply, “Jen, you’re so unorganised!”

And you know what? It’s true. It’s funny though, I never used to be. I always knew exactly what I was doing, when I needed to do it by and how to go about it. And in certain aspects of my life, I’m still super organised (at work, for example). But when it comes to things like this, my personal life (sending cards, attending events I'd say I'd go to) - I’ve sort of stopped trying. I think a lot of it comes from travelling, of packing it all in and shipping across the world. Somewhere along the way I just decided to take a laissez-faire approach to organising my life. My life is just too transient, uncertain, and, yes, sometimes that really stresses me out. Especially now, with my parents moving to Perth. I mean hell, who knows where I’m going to be in 9 months? Not me.

So, frankly, what’s the point in trying to organise my life? Don’t get me wrong, I make contingency plans, I think about possible outcomes, but I am not particularly fussed on the details, and not particularly good at time frames. Life’s too short to get caught up in the minutia – especially if it’s all just going to change in a couple of weeks anyway. Let the chips fall where they may. Or something.

That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
