For those select few of you who read this blog frequently enough to notice I haven’t been posting, you’re in luck. Here I am, in the flesh, or, in the plasma. I can’t guarantee that this return will spark an increase in consistent posting, but the fact that I even came back here is a shining testament to just how much I’ve grown over the years.
A moment of silence for my previous attempts at blogging. May they rest in bytes.
Anyway, there’s a modicum of possibility that at least one of you is wondering why exactly I dropped off the face of the internet. Those particularly observant would also notice that I’ve stopped posting on Facebook. The short version of that is Facebook sucks, social media is toxic, and I’m too tired to deal with the bullshit that being active on it entails. I have started posting on Instagram again, mainly because I’ve taken a few pictures lately that have rekindled my love for photography.
Yes, I quit Facebook. No, I don’t miss it, and absolutely no, I won’t go back any time soon. It’s nothing against anyone in particular… more everyone in particular. To be frank and honest, as I always aim to be, I have been struggling on a deep level lately. Things have been rough, but I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching. Try not to take my radio silence as a reason to worry, but more a reason to relax. I am in a bad place, but for me it takes a lot of solitude and introspection to get out of it.
I start school in early July, doing a STEM program at a local community college. It will be a challenge, but I think the distraction will be good for me. The summer solstice has passed and it’s officially time for some fond summer memories. I have already made many, and I intend on making many more. Like aforementioned, I will be busy, so I have no guarantee that this signifies that I’ll be posting again in the near future, but it was good to get some content out there. The urge to blog was there– that means it will come back eventually.
Until next time, whenever that may be, I bid you all adieu.
