Sex & the City for 2012

SATC: The Complete Series

At home sick, I spent the afternoon watching the third season of Sex & The City. It’s been a couple years since I last watched the series, although I used to love love love it a few years ago.

I used to be inspired to write by Sex & The City, identifying with Carrie and her relationship struggles (although mine were less dramatic in comparison).

Watching it now, I still love the show, even though I’m not sure how much of it is due to nostalgia. I don’t feel as annoyed by Carrie as other people on various blogs seem to. Yes, it veers toward vapid when a lot of the conversation/scenes centre around sex. Also clothes/shoes. And yes, Carrie’s conversations revolve a lot around her relationships and problems. But lest we forget, SATC was a comedy-drama and its protagonist is Carrie.

One thing that has changed about how I feel towards the show: I don’t feel inspired to write anymore by the SATC episodes. I guess because my own relationship dramas have died down. My husband and I have a pretty drama-free life together. We not only get along romantically but also we just enjoy each other’s company. Anyway, my life suddenly makes Carrie’s life unrelatable to me. I found the person I want to be with the rest of my life. And he wants to be with me. And he’s a nice man who does all the right things. I guess I found my Aiden rather than searching/pining for my Mr Big.


Obligatory Intro Post

Petting a penguin

Yup, that’s me in the picture there. In case you weren’t aware, I’m the less fuzzy one. I’m petting an adolescent king penguin at Seaworld. (Does that make him a prince penguin?)

This blog is my attempt to get back into writing again. I’ve been writing in blogs for years, from Livejournal to Xanga to Blogger and now, WordPress. There were a lot of other insignificant blogs inbetween.

For a long while, I stopped writing because of a lot of family issues that were happening in my life. I just felt a bit too exposed after my family’s business was splashed over the front pages of various newspapers all over the country.

But now, after a really long hiatus, I’ve decided to pick up the proverbial pen again and start writing. I’m used to writing about relationships, makeup and general life observations. This blog will be more of the same, hence the name: Anna Rambles. I’m not 100% sure of the focus of this blog yet, but I figured I should just start writing.

Here goes nothing.
