Well, hello, strangers! I have a few more interesting things to talk about, but thought I’d at least address the fact that it’s been well over a month since my last post, which was barely even a post since it was just pictures of hot men.
I’m not sure what happened, but all those wonderful blogging ideas that filled my head every day for months and months just sort of … went away (to very poorly borrow a line from the movie Willow). I just stopped. I stopped writing — anything — and stopped reading. I didn’t read blogs (even those of my real life friends and especially those of people I’ve only known through their blogs) or books. I tried to read Crime and Punishment for my book club, but it was just way too deep and dark and complicated for me in the month of February 2010. I took a whole class on Fyodor Dostoevsky in college, so I know it was a situational brain-fried moment in my life, but it just wasn’t the right time for it.
So, I got through about 60 pages and gave up.
But I’m slowly getting back to normal, I hope, and will try to pick up writing my blog again. I miss it in a way; and in a way, it’s been liberating not having to keep up with it. It’s also been liberating not pressuring myself to read, although I’ve picked up a new book in the past couple weeks that’s incredibly fascinating and I’m enjoying it a lot. You’ll have to wait, though. I plan to blog about it (hey! That’s just one more day of blogging for me).
I’m going to leave this post as a reintroduction/announcement of my return and start writing a little more often beginning tomorrow. So stay tuned …
