I must say, I'm very sorry to have neglected this blog for such an extended period of time. It's always lingered in the back of my mind:
"Hey, I have a minuscule, insignificant part of the internet where I can post things that cross my mind... Hm. Hubbout that?"
It's not like I didn't think about coming back and throwing up a post every now and again, it's just that I never felt like I had anything to blog about. Then, minutes ago, I had an epiphany. I'm a writer! Plenty of interesting things happen to me on a daily basis, I just don't really pay them much notice; and as a writer, I know that I can twist even the most mundane, boring, pointless story and create a staggering metaphor for some aspect of our existence.
That Dell box formerly contained what remained after I threw the past eleven years of my life into a strainer for the move out. Strangely enough, after moving the multiple trash bags of "non-essentials" from my room, there remained so few things that I didn't even need to utilize my considerable Tetris skills to fit them all into the box.
The whole moving ordeal lasted for about two days, after which I settled pretty easily into my new life in the Blue Room. It's a peaceful existence, really. My roommate is a teacher, so he is gone when I wake up in the "morning" (or around 1:00pm). At night, if I'm not doing a whole lot, I'll sit down and write. He and I are both aspiring authors, so we act as editors and critics to each other's work. He recently tore my current story to shreds, giving me a lot to think about and to go back and edit, but it will definitely make my story that much more amazing.
It's good to be back in the blag. I know I'll be back more frequently from here on out, I promise.
