I keep opening a new blog post on here, typing some random bullshit and then shutting it down. I can’t seem to think of anything to say anymore. I used to be able to pour my thoughts out with no problems but lately, I feel stifled. Perhaps it’s because my life has become a total rut of work (which I really enjoy, which is so nice, I can’t even begin to tell you), kids, appointments, swimming and trying to keep from dying in a pile of clutter. I don’t have much time left for much of anything else.
I started editing on a new site called www.scriptic.org. It’s a spin off from another site where I used to edit and we’re all hoping it will take off and be successful. We’re going to have a weekly writing challenge and hope to incorporate art and photography challenges very soon.
I also took a huge leap and joined a dating website again. The rut I’ve gotten into involves me hanging out with the same group of friends every weekend and while I love them all dearly, I need to shake things up a bit. I don’t have huge hopes for this, since the last time I did it, it was a bit of a disaster, but if nothing else, it will be amusing.
I sent a letter to an old friend. An actual, pen-to-paper letter. We just stopped talking about 10 years ago and he’s been on my mind a lot lately, so I reached out. I haven’t heard back, though, which is making me a bit sad. I don’t like unresolved things and this is one person that I’d really like to reconnect with, if only to find out what the hell happened. Closure. Or some such bullshit.
Perhaps if I just keep dumping the banal out of my head, I’ll be able to write something actually worth reading soon.
