If you’ve browsed through my post history or are subscribed to this blog (I know, I know, you’re probably not) you may have noticed a lack of posts. Or perhaps an increase in low effort posts. Well it does not mean I’ve lost interest in blogging so fear not! (Ok, ok, I’m sure no one is panicking or even noticing really) In truth, I’ve simply found myself with very little free time on my hands.
At work, things are picking up, new responsibilities are being thrown at me, new fires arise daily that require my attention, and my willingness to help my coworkers with their own conundrums are keeping me running around the office more than usual. Though I don’t mind it and it does seem to come with recognition and reward as well. Outside of work, summer has been in bloom for a couple of months now and I’ve been making a point of enjoying the sun. Biking, golfing, half marathon training (coming up in September!), BBQing, and taking my dog for more strolls around the neighborhood are keeping me away from my computer (but not enough to get a few hours of The Witcher in each week). Alongside those outdoor activities I’ve also began hitting the gym again which is something I’ve meant to do for a while now. All in all, time outside of work seems to be slim as well.
Though in the few weeks that have passed, I have used what little downtime I have had to chip away at my blog projects. However, many of these are long term ideas as opposed to a snappy Simpsons shitpost I can whip together in a couple of hours. I’ve got plenty on the go that will eventually make their way on here as anytime a stupid idea (or maybe a good one every six months) that pops in my head I do jot down and file it for later. This is a list that seems to be growing as opposed to shrinking though. Anyways that’s really all I wanted to say (also, I’ll consider using less parentheses).
