Out of chaos comes discovery

My name is Jon and I’m an addict.

I’ve been a junkie for as long as I can remember. These are some of the symptoms of my condition:

  • A constant craving to find alternative ways to do things.
  • A constant desire to find alternative routes to get from A to B. And then back again.
  • I’m never on time. Sometimes I’m early; sometimes I’m late – but never on time.
  • A refusal to sit on the same seat on the train to work every day. I’d rather stand thank you.
  • A pathological hatred of holiday itineraries. And I mean hatred!
  • People who go back to the same hotel every year scare me. Why would you want to do that?
  • An itch to try new dishes in restaurants. Even if I don’t really like the sound of them. Unless they contain celery.
  • The word ‘routine’ makes me break out in a cold sweat.
  • The only thing I ever worry about is not worrying about anything.
  • I never read instructions. Especially IKEA’s.

I’m a change junkie. I love it and don’t ever want that to change. Er, hang on, let me think about that one…

Some would describe my condition as somewhat chaotic.

I say out of chaos comes discovery – and isn’t that what life is all about?

  1. The last time I went at an Ikea chest of drawers without using the instructions it ended in the ultimate tears – made such a mess of it that I had to throw it out, they wouldn’t even take it back.

    Maybe there’s a lesson there?!

  2. Regardless of whether or not you follow the instructions, an IKEA chest of drawers is destined for the bonfire sooner or later. It’s a simple fact of life.
