I don’t know if there is anyone out there who still reads this, but I figured I should acknowledge that I haven’t forgotten this blog. I actually ended up on a forced hiatus due to lack of time, focus, and a functional laptop. Now that the third issue has been addressed, I am attempting to deal with the first two problems.
There has been a lot of stuff going on with both my family and my own noisy head. This has all required my attention. These things will continue to be a priority and I doubt this will change anytime soon. I’ve also been trying to talk about my family a little less. This eliminates one of my more common topics.
I mentioned before that I’m considering other writing projects. What creative energy I have is currently being directed at coming up with ideas for other mediums. They may never see the light of day, but this is what is in my head at this time.
So I guess while the hiatus was not intentional, it will probably continue a bit more. At least until I have something worth saying on this platform.
Just letting you all know.
Hi folks. Sorry for the silence.
I realize I haven’t been writing or posting things for a bit. And to be honest, I don’t really have anything pressing to say at the moment. Things have just gotten a little hectic and a bunch of unforeseen events happened at once. If you know me in person, then you probably know at least some of what has been going on. Otherwise, I can let you know a bit.
One of the changes is that I picked up a very needed part-time job. I’ve been the stay-at-home parent for the past year and it got to the point where, for both financial and personal needs, I needed to get myself employed. So I know work a few nights a week after my wife gets home from her job. So this is ultimately a good thing. The other things going on I’m not quite ready to discuss. Part of this is that, unlike when I talk about depression, they involve things happening to other people on a more direct level. Some stuff isn’t at a point where I feel comfortable putting it into words. Other events, I feel, require permission from others that I don’t have right now. Suffice to say, enough things are going on in my life right now that this blog has needed to take a back seat.
So why am I here now? I’m not vain enough to think that anyone is heartbroken at my lack of posts. I’m mainly writing this to acknowledge that I still plan to write. I’m also thinking of other writing projects that are a little different from blogging. Depending on where that leads I may be splitting focus. But for right now, I just wanted to let those who have taken the time to check out this page know that it hasn’t been forgotten. I’m gonna go eat a cookie now.
