A post about lack of… posts

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).

My delightfully chubby husky

I’ve been lacking on posts as many of which I’m currently working on are time consuming and I’m making little progress. But I thought I’d share this picture of my dog, Lira, because I find it hilarious. While she is a couple of pounds heavy (vet assured us it’s nothing dangerous though) the way she’s sitting coupled with her thick winter coat makes her look extra tubby in this snap. Also the look she’s giving to something out of frame is the one she gives when something captures her interest. I absolutely love it.

RIP Pen

For the first time in my life, I’ve actually ran out of ink in a pen. Normally I’d lose it long before it’s even halfway done. In school, at work, at home, I’ve never ran out of ink before. I’ve had this bad boy for years now in the office I work in and the other day it finally kicked the bucket. I gave it a proper burial in the office garbage can.
