The Origins of Someday Syndrome

Amy Loves Ya on Flickr.comBetween August 2006 and August 2008, I blogged my journey from leaving Toronto, Canada to settling San Sebastian, Spain. During that time I developed my Someday-Busting philosophies and mentoring methods.

Despite being a highly personal journal, I always applied the personal to the universal. To celebrate where I came from and how far I’ve progressed, each Saturday I’ll highlight a few articles from that journey.

Enjoy!

Two Years Ago on Someday Syndrome

  • The History of Alex: All my traveling around started to take its toll on my and I was beginning to miss my stuff, especially photos from my past.
  • The Smallest Detail: A minor car accident reminded me to pay more attention to details, especially when it comes to things and that order can become chaos in a flash.

One Year Ago on Someday Syndrome

  • Twenty Years of Alex: In the same vein as the lack of history post, in May 2008, I received a disk with photos from a friend and shared the funniest with the blog because honestly, life’s too short to take ourselves too seriously.
  • Flaunting My Imperfections: As a British-Canadian, I had no problem killing my ego, but learning not to suppress my anger? Not so easy.

  1. This is great! It’s always good to think about where you’ve been and reflect on that. I did a little bit of that on my own blog today when I looked back at my first blog post (a mere three months ago!). It’s interesting sometimes to think about where you’ve been and I think sharing these articles about your journey is great! I’m looking forward to reading more.

    Alex,

    Nice! It’s fun to see your evolution as a blog author.

    (If I had any doubt that we’re the exact same age, the teenage hairdos took it away. Oh, do I remember the look. Ho ho ho!)

    Regards,

    Kelly

  4. Re: 20 years of Alex. I always thought that if I had to do some sort of speech about you (no, not a eulogy!), I would do it from the point of view of your ever changing hairstyles.

    I’m a big fan of looking back to see the progress. I was reading some of my early early posts and thinking – wow, have I ever changed as a blogger, but I like that I’ve still kept the same tone more or less.

    @Kelly
    For some reason, a lot of people look at those hairstyles and say “what were you thinking Alex?!?” – I loved my 80s looks!

    @Patricia
    I also had a great time diving into the past and checking things out. It’s like rereading old diary entries.

    @UP
    Note to self – do no get sister to give a speech at any sort of public event about me. 😉

    Alex,

    LOL. Maybe being an 80s kid is when I learned to focus so hard on the eyes…

    I don’t wonder what you were thinking, I know what your were thinking. Flock of Seagulls. 🙂

    I’d have drooled over you—you were adorable. But then, I still do. (Don’t tell Raul!)

    Until later,

    Kelly

    More The Cure, but basically the same thing. 😉

    @Brianna
    Thanks! I’m glad to have this record. I’ve never been good at journalling but having the blog has given me something to keep track of my life.

    ROFL. Be still my beating heart, I loved The Cure.
