It’s been over a month since I’ve posted. :hangs head in shame:
I know I’ve done this before, but I had actually set a goal to write more regularly, and now I’m just disappointed in myself. I doubt that I have much of a regular readership at the moment, anyway, but really, who is going to hang around a site that is never updated? I’m also feeling a tinge of hypocrisy. You see, I have some friends and acquaintances who blog, and make videos, and draw comics. And they do these things at regular intervals. Well, if they’re even a few hours off in updating, I start to get agitated. And yet, here I am. Slacking.
I don’t want to do the requisite “begging for forgiveness” post. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, and it’s really not my style. I will give you some insight as to why I’ve been MIA lately. First and foremost, I’ve been busy with work. Time management seems to be a personal weakness of mine, so my life lately has consisted of working, reading news articles, getting overwhelmed by the news articles, discussing those articles on Facebook, and then working some more. Obviously, this is something I need to work on.
More recently, I’ve been struggling with some health issues. There are a few symptoms which have been nagging for years now, but seem to have become much worse since summer, peaking in the past two or three weeks. I suspect that a gluten sensitivity may be at the root of it all, though I have yet to go for any of the necessary testing. I’ve been researching insurance and dietary resources like mad, and am trying to implement as many changes as possible (read: going gluten-free) by the start of the new year. Of course, this is easier said than done, and as I type this, I just finished off a package of Quickchek chocolate chunk cookies (certainly NOT GF). I feel like I could use a coach, or a trainer. Someone to whip me into shape when my own willpower fails me.
Anyway, I’m looking at implementing a regular schedule for writing. I don’t know how often I’ll be updating yet…it’s going to be kind of trial and error at first, but I’m striving for at least once a week. I’m working on building a regular routine, and the first step in that is actually being awake during the daylight hours (staying up until 4am, and sleeping until 2pm is not doing me any favors). So that’s that. We’ll see how this goes.
