You know, the one where I go a really, really long time without posting an update. Also that thing where I completely change the way this site looks. I’m really going to try to stop doing that first thing, but I make no promises regarding the second. Even as I write this, I’m resisting the urge to delete all my previous posts and just start over from scratch. Again. But I’m not, because one day supposedly I’ll look back and be proud of how far I’ve come and how much I’ve improved, or some jazz like that. Or maybe I’ll just be embarrassed. Whatever, for now I’ll leave all that old stuff up.
Anyway, long story short, I let my Job-with-a-capital-J turn me into a frazzled human stress ball for the last couple of months. And when you’re feeling like a frayed welcome mat it can be difficult to find the motivation needed to produce anything, let alone anything creative. I’ve been working on accepting that my Job-with-a-capital-J might pay the bills for now, but I don’t have to let it steamroller over my entire life and turn me into a sad pancake. So, I’ve spent this week working not only on this blog, but also another side project that I’m excited to unveil soon. Oh, and also getting ready for a much needed mini-vacation. After work tomorrow I’ll be skipping town for a long weekend of climbing, and when I return, hopefully it will be with a tired body and a refreshed mind.
Updates soon! I promise this time!
