I’ve been busy. Well, I have been somewhat busy and somewhat apathetic about this whole writing thing. It seems trivial when I am in school. Between class and work, I have little free time; and what free time I get, I try to spend with my friends just hanging out. Blogging last year was done mostly when I wasn’t spending my time with my girlfriend or eating. I even substituted it for sleep because there simply wasn’t anything to do. I had no real friends besides my two best friends and the most time I spent with them were on dates and back in the dorm. Now I have friends who I hang out with, a job to go to, and classes to do work in. I just been busy.
I feel as though this decision not to blog has been somewhat disparaging to my thought process. I don’t think very critically anymore unless it is for a paper in one of my School of Religion classes. I don’t think reflectively, I don’t ponder about life, and I don’t ask serious questions for others to attempt answering. That is something I want to get back in the habit of doing. Surely, this will take some time and some getting used to due to the fact that I haven’t written here very much in a long time. I’m not even sure if half of my readers would still be interested in what I have to say. Hopefully my family (and you Dara) might enjoy seeing and reading my thoughts.
Perhaps I should incorporate this writing into my schedule on a regular basis. However, this will not always work out because my schedule is often erratic and unpredictable. I don’t know if my free time will allow this sort of writing with all of the writing and homework that I have to do. I think that I can manage to write at least twice a week, if not more. That’s my starting goal. Hopefully I can manage and stick to it.
PS: Comments are a good motivation… even if it’s just a “hey.” Naturally, I see stats, but stats are stats and not human interaction. They don’t really mean a whole lot to me in comparrison to readers engaging or responding to my thoughts.
